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.

10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

Your house is more than just a building that you live in. It should be a home that makes you feel welcome as soon as you open the front door.

Making your house feel like a home is not something that simply happens on its own. You need to make some changes to a house when you move in, to give it that cozy, warm feeling that turns it into a true home. To help you speed the process, follow this guide to 10 small changes to make your house feel like a home.

1. Make the Windows Your Own

When you move into a home, they often come with boring Venetian blinds or less than attractive curtains.

One of the best ways you can instantly warm your home and make it showcase your style is to add some new window dressing. Adding beautiful curtains not only improves your home’s appearance, but it can also help to control the temperature.

2. Put up Some Art

If you have a lot of bare walls in your home, it will seem sterile no matter how beautiful your paint or wallpaper is.

Hanging art on the walls will instantly give it personality and make it feel like home.

3. Improve the Aroma

A house that is not filled with inviting smells will never feel like a home. There are loads of ways you can make your home smell nice. There are tons of air fresheners on the market you can use.

Incense and scented candles are a nice option as well. Don’t forget that baking in a home is also a great way to fill it with an aroma that instantly smells like home as soon as you open the front door.

4. Put out Lots of Pillows and Throws

A great way to make your home look warm and inviting is to place lots of pillows and throws out on the furniture. It is much better to have too many pillows than not enough.

There is nothing like the feeling of sinking into a cushiony pillow that feels like a cloud to make you feel like you are at home.

5. Instantly Class up Your Closet

If your closet is filled with wire or plastic hangers, it will never truly feel homey. To instantly make your closet feel classy, change out your old hangers for wooden ones.

Not only do they look great, but they are better for hanging your clothes as well.

6. Improve Your Air Quality

One of the most overlooked ways to make your house feel more like a home is to improve its air quality.

The easiest and best way to upgrade the air quality in your home is to change the old, dirty filters in your furnace regularly. Get some air filters delivered to your home so that you always have some on hand.

7. Fill it with Plants

Another way to improve the air quality in your home is to fill it with plants. You should have plants in every room of your home.

They help to improve the air quality and they look beautiful. As well as making your home appear homier, plants also help to boost your mood and lower your stress levels.

8. Change the Doorknobs

Most people don’t really give their doorknobs a second thought unless they are broken. That is a shame because changing your doorknobs is an easy way to add personality to your home.

Changing your old, boring doorknobs to new ones that are works of art will instantly brighten your home.

9. Upgrade Your Tub or Shower

There is nothing like luxuriating in a whirlpool bath or steam shower to make the cares of the day melt away. Your family deserves a bit of luxury when they are in their bathroom.

Install a new shower or tub today to make your bathroom worthy of a place in your home.

10. Fresh Cut Flowers

You can make any room in your house feel homier by placing a vase full of beautiful flowers in it. The gorgeous look and intoxicating aroma of fresh cut flowers will immediately brighten your day when you encounter them.

You don’t have to make all these changes at once. Try one or two a day though, and your house will feel like a home before you know it. The trick is to constantly keep adding these homey touches to make your home a place worthy of its name.
