By the time you read this post I’ll probably be on a flight to L.A. to visit my beautiful wonderful Big Vanessa, or if you’re really lucky by the time you read this post I’ll probably already be in L.A. hugging Vanessa and screaming because my flight is that early so you might just sleep through my two hour journey. In honor of my weekend journey (which is sure to be an absolute blast), I thought I would share the top reason why every girl needs a Big.
1. College is scary. Seriously though! When I first moved to Pullman I had no idea what was “cool” or “not cool”, and let’s face it, I still don’t but at least I found someone to love me and guide me through all my cool and uncool moments.
2. A Big is an automatic twin. Okay that sounds weird but I’m all about dressing up and matching, when you officially have a big they are obliged to match you, duh!
3. A good Big will always listen to your secrets and never tell them. She will be the perfect confident and advice giver and always willing to listen to your pointless drama over Starbucks (at least that’s what mine did).
4. Most likely your Big is going to be older than you which means when you’re stuck living in the dorms or your sorority (both of which I actually really liked) she is the cool wine with an apartment and maybe even a car. What does this mean for you? Sleepover central obviously! I can’t trek you how many times I slept at Vanessa’s either because I needed someone to rant to or wanted someone to eat massive amounts of tortellini with me sans judgement or just to have a girls night.
Now I know not every girl out there is lucky enough to be in a sorority (or in some cases…unlucky enough) but regardless I think everyone needs someone they can think of as a “Big Sister” if you know what I mean…and I think you do. If you’re as lucky as me your Big will really start to feel like your family and one of your best friends!
Vanessa you are the big sister I never had and I’m SO excited for our weekend together! I know it is going to be one to remember!!!
Sorority girls out there, what are the top reasons you think every girl needs a Big?
