What Having A Little Sister Is Really Like

What Having A Little Sister Is Really Like

My sister and I are very different people, who most of the time drive each other insane.

Screams, slamming doors and tear filled Fridays are what vibrates through the upstairs of my house between my sister and I. My sister and I have a two year and ten day age difference, and for a majority of our lives were known as "the girls", a title that we could not fight nor control. My sister is as hard headed, stubborn and snotty as I am. And some of it is my fault, I understand. But I want to go through some of the predicaments you will find yourself in if you have a little sister. Prepare yourselves, people.

1. Stealing clothes

They will steal everything you own. Sometimes just because they know you want to wear it. Shoes? Gone. Favorite sweater? Nope. Then after they steal it, you won't see it for months and they'll pull the "I'm not sure where it is, but get out of my room." The best example I have of this is when my sister stole my brand new sweatshirt, left it in her gym locker without a lock, and it ended up getting stolen.

2. "Whatever you think"

I am as guilty as my sister about this one. A simple response of "whatever you think" can turn a disagreement into World War Three. This is when my sister starts throwing punches. It doesn't ever get as bad as when asking if they think you look bad and they respond with "whatever you think".

3. Simply being rude

I try my hardest to be friends, even just civil with my little sister. I mean, my last year in high school, I don't want us fighting right before I leave for college. It's probably the last year we'll ever live together. But she has an attitude I have never seen before. "Brat", "b****", ugly" all the time. I hold my tongue, except the one time she called me one of those names and I smashed the smoothie I bought her onto her carpet. Oops.

4. Constant comments of how I am not cool enough

I adored my older sister for all of the years she lived at home. Even to this day I think she is the coolest, sweetest person I know. But to my little sister I am the worst. I am boring and obnoxious. Given that I do really enjoy sitting in her room when she has friends over and just messing with them, I like to think I'm a pretty chill and nice person.

My sister and I are very different people, who most of the time drive each other insane. After all these situations, I still would fist fight anyone who dare hurts my sister. I adore her for her huge heart, her drive to help others and sensitivity (seriously, major cry baby). I can't wait for her to visit me at college and help me babysit our older sister's kids one day. If you have a little sister, you know exactly what I'm talking about. If you don't have a little sister, I'm sorry for you. Because it's one of the most fun jobs I've ever had.

18 Things That Happen When You Get A Good Roommate

Not every roommate story is a bad one.

Whenever you hear about roommate stories, they're almost never good, and they usually scare you into never wanting a roommate. "Did you hear her roommate steals her clothes?" "Her roommate doesn't shower!" "Wow, her roommate doesn't talk at all, and doesn't do laundry." From what I hear, there are more bad stories than good. That is why I consider myself lucky, because my roommate is nothing like one of those bad stories. When life hands you a good roommate after talking to about 40 girls through Facebook, a few things happen.

1. You always have someone to talk to.

2. You know each other's schedules, and whenever you both have a break is an exciting time.

3. You'll never have to dance alone.

4. You always have someone to do something with, even if it's just walking down the hall.

5. You both look out for each other, because this is your first time without your parents.

6. You always have a shoulder to lean on when things get tough.

7. Borrowing each other's things is a daily thing.

8. You TRY to help with each other's homework and assignments.

9. They're encouraging when it comes to boys. (Unless they're a f*ckboy.)

10. They're your biggest support system and your personal cheerleader.

11. They never forget to wish you luck on a big exam.

12. They accept how gross you are in the morning and not so pleasant sometimes.

13. You both know each other's favorite and least favorite things.

14. Leaving each other notes saying goodbye before class if you don't see them is normal.

15. Saying goodbye for breaks is upsetting.

16. Not seeing them all day is upsetting.

17. You have more pictures together than any of your other friends.

18. You found a best friend for life.
