I'm glad I get to call you my look-alike.

13 Questions You Are Always Asked When They Find Out You Are A Twin
Nicole Wright

I have a twin sister, and whenever anyone finds this out, they instantly start to freak out and start to ask questions. I get bombarded with dozens of questions- some of which seem to make zero sense. So here are some questions that people ask when they find out you have a twin.

1. Are you identical or fraternal?

My sister and I are Identical twins.

2. Who's older?

She's older by four minutes. She was born at 7:43 a.m. and I was born at 7:47 p.m.

3. Do you guys have twin-telepathy?

No, we don't. I really don’t think it’s true, but if it was, I have never experienced it before, or maybe I have?

4. Do you like being a twin?

I like being a twin. I like knowing that I have some there for me and someone talk to about everything. We may not always have a perfect relationship at times but we quickly get over and we somehow are like best friends again.

5. Are you guys best friends?

This is a hard question, we have a bipolar relationship (see question 4), we have our good days but we have bad days too. Nobody is perfect and neither are relationships of any type.

6. Have you two ever switched places?

We did a lot in high school especially in our English class because our teacher couldn't tell us apart at all. The students could but they thought it was funny so they went along with it.

7. Did you go to the same college?

After we graduated high school she moved to Cleveland, OH and attended Cleveland State University while I stayed local. I am currently finishing my general studies associates degree at Glen Oaks Community College. This past summer she did move back home and started online classes at Glen Oaks so we technically attend the same college.

8. How can people tell you guys apart?

She has a side shaved head and is shorter. I have glasses and I'm taller. She also has a scar on her nose from having to get stitches when she was younger.

9. Do you guys have the same friends?

Yes, we have a few friends that are the same but most of our friends are very different.

10. Can you feel each other's pain?


11. Did your parents dress you alike as kids?

From the pictures I have seen, they did. But there would be something distinct about each of our outfits so they could tell us apart.

12. Do you guys have a secret language that only the two of you know?

No. We are not that creative, nor did we ever get the chance to come up with a whole new language.

13. Do you guys get along?

Sometimes, we are working on it.

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.

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.
