Why My Sister Is My Person: As Told By Grey's Anatomy

10 reasons why you are the Christina to my Meredith, the Mark to my Derek, and the Izzy to my George.

Why My Sister Is My Person: As Told By Grey's Anatomy

I was blessed enough to find my person at a pretty young age, 18 months old to be exact. We have grown into individuals; young women who could not be more different in our hobbies, our personalities, and our life goals. You are the extrovert to my introvert, the laughter to my seriousness, and the wild to my calm. You are my truest opposite and my best match. You are my sister, and you are my person.

Thank goodness we both share an unhealthy love for Grey's Anatomy because here's why you're my person.

1. You get my silly side

You're the only one I can truly be myself with. You don't judge me when I want to act like I'm six years old again (maybe because you always act that way?? LOL kidding). We call each other from thousands of miles away and I can't stop laughing long enough to get a conversation in. You get my funny.

2. "Are You Guys Drunk..."

We are drunk best friends. Any time, any place (sorry, Mom). Whenever we see each other out it's the immediate, " OMG, You'll never guess what happened tonight, It's UNREAL". Then we chase our stories with shots and a selfie, which you force someone to take forty different times because we have the same good side, UGH.

3. "When's the best time to text *insert crazy ex-boyfriend's name here*"

We, well I, give the best sisterly advice. I repeat: DO NOT TEXT HIM. You are strong, you are powerful, you don't need no' man! You can be real with me when no one else can, because we understand each other like no one else does. How many times do we catch ourselves saying "No one else gets its it!!" when we tell each other our deepest secrets, only to realize we have the same ones.

4. We handle the mental breakdowns for each other

I love being the person that puts life in perspective for you. I was born first so I have this unspoken role as a big sister to make sure you're doing okay. When you call me with that monthly "What am I doing with my life" freak out, I got you. Don't worry. I've been there, we all have, and unfortunately it's not a one time deal. But fear not little sis, I'm ready for ya.

5. We aren't afraid to tell it like it is

We don't have that "be nice factor" when sh*t gets real, because we're sisters. We don't sugar coat or beat around the bush. If I'm messing up my life I expect you to set me on the straight and narrow, no if's, and's, or but's about it. I will never hesitate to knock you back into reality because your success is just as important as my own.

6. We drive each other absolutely crazy

You are pretty much the bane of my existence, but in a good way. You drive me nuts 98.5% of the time, but that other 1.5% you're great! We all need a little crazy in our lives and you without a doubt are mine. Like every time you steal, and ultimately ruin my clothing, then silently place it back in my closet like I bought that shirt with a pizza stain on it and i'll never even notice! (Wish you could see me rolling my eyes as I'm thinking back to this exact instance.)

7. We push each other

One of us could be chief, or the president, or whatever we want to be in this world. We are a tag team of power sisters. We both understand each other's greatness even when we underestimate our own. When we fall down, we pick each other up because we are meant to move forward and conquer each and every obstacle we face.

8. Regardless of what's going on in our own lives, we make time for each other

I don't care what I'm going through, if you need me, call me. No problem is too small and no question too dumb. I will always have time for you. Nothing is or ever will be more important to me than you.

9. We put things into perspective

Nothing is ever as bad as it seems. We take a step back and realize the normalcy of all our problems, and sometimes that's all we need to hear. We have days that are sad and angry, and some that are bubbly and happy. All emotions are normal, and everyone reacts to things differently, I'll always be here to keep you grounded.

10. You are the sun

I don't care if this is about a boy, a job, a house, or whatever the other thing in life may be, you are the sun. Don't let anything overpower who you are and who you've come to be. You are one of the best people I know, and nothing should change the way you see yourself. You are my person and my sister, I love you more than I can put into words.

Don't ever stop shining.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
