If You Have A Weird Sister, Never Leave Her Alone

If You Have A Weird Sister, Never Leave Her Alone

In most groups of siblings, there is always the weird one. They’re the one that you have to protect from bullies, prevent from wearing their bras outside their shirts and keep away from your friends until they reach a certain age. But once you’re grown up, having a weird sister is actually one of the best experiences you’ll ever have.

If you have a weird sister, you have a life-long friend, a partner-in-crime and someone who totally gets it when your parents do bizarre things. Here are eight reasons you should never leave her alone:

1. They Don’t Expect You to Be Perfect

The best thing about having a weird sister is that she accepts that she is imperfect and does not expect you to be perfect. She does not care when you mess up or make a choice that she disagrees with. She encourages you to take risks, even when failure is highly likely.

In fact, it is better if you’re not perfect. Then, no one will try to compare the two of you. You’ll both be free to make your own mistakes and learn from them without living in the other’s shadow.

2. They Are Unique and Cannot Be Replaced

You’ll spend your life waiting for that one person who is like no one else. You’ll wait and search and occasionally find a person who you think might be the one. However, you’re more often than not disappointed by the person that once held so much potential.

But the truth is if you have a weird sister, there’s no need to look further. You already found the person in your life who can never be replaced.

3. They Encourage You to Be Yourself

She will be herself almost 100% of the time. Living with that is infuriating until you realize that if she can do it, so can you.

4. They Don’t Care What People Think About Them

She is herself because she doesn’t care what people think about her. She can be who she wants, do what she wants and act how she wants because she couldn’t care less about what anyone thinks. She is liberated and free. However, she’ll still need her sister when someone gets through her armor.

5. They’ll Take Your Weird Ideas and Make Them Weirder

Weird people don’t necessarily have to make normal things weird. But they can encourage you to make weird things weirder. If you casually suggest a road trip, they’ll have you in a car travelling Route 66 in no time. When you have a weird sister, you can feed on each other’s weirdness and find the true limits of your imagination.

6. They Don’t Care About Daily Drama

She’s thoughtful and creative and kind of weird. But she doesn’t care if you stole her shirt. She doesn’t care if you don’t agree with her choices. You know that if you have a weird sister, you’re not going to fight about the petty things and if you do fight, it is a fight worth having.

7. They Made You Who You Are

Your sister literally helped make you into the person you are. They were there as you grew and developed and much of your childhood was spent reacting to them. You can thank them for helping to foster the best parts of your personality.

8. They Understand Pretty Much Everything

Weird sisters are not closed minded. You can say the weirdest things to them and even if they don’t actually get it, they still get where you’re coming from. That kind of validation is essential on days where you’re pretty sure you’re losing your mind.

The truth is there is nothing better than having a sister; unless, you have a weird sister. Then, you’ve won the sibling lottery.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
