Relations Day

I want to write about important things first, and I got to feeling a bit guilty this morning about the fact that my computer got my first entry. The point is that in my entire-life-story livejournal, my life is looking kinda weird. It's not like I'd meet death to save my computer, I'd meet a lot, but not as much as some things.

Like my sister. Total dork; I completely love her. She's a lot like me in that we're both tough, sarcastic, and logical. The biggest difference between us would have to be our activities in life: I chose track (yeah, be a jock!) and she chose debate (yeah, be a dork!). We were both fairly good at our diciplines, but she rocked the debate world in a big way, almost undefeated in LD her senior year. I was really proud of her. She got to go to exotic places for national tournaments, girls' state and girls' nation, off to college on a huge debate scholarship. I went on an academic scholarship; track wasn't interested in paying me for what I'd keep doing for two years.

Oh, and she doesn't like math, can you believe it? And physics... my second religion! She dropped the class halfway into vector notation, I was stupified. I guess she's smart in her own way, but it's hard to relate to someone who doesn't get orgasmic about the hexadecimal numbering system.

But despite our differences, we get along really well. I love my sister. I can talk to her about anything, really, we relate very well and lead interesting enough lives that we appreciate hearing about one another. We keep in touch, know each other, read each other, complain about mom and dad together. I'm really glad I've got a sister, I love her in ways I can't describe. Smile, babe...
