Family isn't about whose blood you have. It's about who you care about. -Trey Parker and Matt Stone, South Park

I love my mom and dad. Really, I do. But growing up, they really didn't feel or act like parents. They still don't. I think they could have been taken from my life and I would have still lived just fine as a kid with my nanny and the trust fund.

Bruiser was really the first person that ever really felt like family to me. I found him abandoned outside that mall when I was seventeen. I knew nothing about taking care of dogs, but he was just a puppy and I couldn't just leave him alone. Ever since then, he's been by my side. I take care of him and he's always there for me.

And now, I have two families. My California family. My Delta Nus. Say what you will about sororities, but those girls have been my angels since Freshman year. Everyone of them is my sister and if you don't believe me, I have a whole inbox full of encouraging emails and text messages that says otherwise.

Then there's my Harvard family. They were...rough on me at first, but I think we have a better understanding of each other now. Paulette is the big sister I never had, Vivian and Emmett keep me honest and Enid inspires me like no other to be a better person.

All of these people. They're not my blood and yet, I feel closer to them than I do anyone else in this world...

I guess that's what family really is.
