Why Having Your Cousins As Your BFFs Is The Best
Start writing a post

Growing up, I've always considered two of my cousins to be my best friends. We had sleepovers, talked about boys, ranted about drama in our life and made dumb decisions that turned into great memories. I never had a whole girl group of friends. I considered my two cousins and my sister to be my girl group. To be honest, having my cousins as my closest friends is probably the best decision I've ever made. They were there when I was in diapers and they'll be there when I get old. There are SO many reasons why having your cousins as your best friends is the best, but here are the top five.

They're always honest with you.

Talking to a boy you know you shouldn't be talking to? They'll roast you about it. Want to cut your hair during a mental breakdown? They'll talk you out of it because they know that you're making a decision that you'll regret later on.

They aren't fake friends.

They don't talk about you behind your back. If they roast you when you're not there, they'll tell you to your face.

You know they'll always be there.

Not only because you're related, but because they CHOOSE to. Friends come and go, but family is forever.

They were there through it ALL.

From the awkward, cringey phases, to the boy drama, they have seen you at your worst and best and they never judge.

They make family parties better.

You have someone to talk to at family parties that won't leave your side when the family gets too rowdy.

I've had so many friends come and go, but never have my cousins left my side. They know all the drama and gossip and we have memories from our childhood that will last a lifetime. Being close to my cousins is truly a blessing because not many people have that. I don't know where I'd be without my cousins. They have truly been there through it all and I can't thank them enough.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
