Floating gently on a cloud....
Ok everyone, be warned, y'all are going to think I am a daft, ungrateful idiot. However, here goes:
I'm going home for the easter holidays in 3 weeks. Thing is, my sister, 3 years older than I, has decided she will go home too. We are both in different parts of England and our parents are in Botswana. Anyway, the thing is, my sis and I do not get on well for long periods of time (long being more than 2 or 3 days...). So though there will be some nice things like we will be together as a family for once (almost never are) and she and I will go riding together. All good. But there are some issues, sibling issues...
She bosses me around something chronic. Its all very well when we are in different parts of the country, I can go visit her, have her tell me how I should dress, how I should behave, etc etc etc and then leave after those 2/3 days and do exactly what I was going to do/was doing in the first place. But if we are going to be there for 3 weeks together, she will drive me mental. Then there is the usual sisterly rubbish: She will monopolize the best seats in the lounge, she will displace me as the dogs' number one distraction, she will invade my workplace (and this is no joke: I have a 4000 word essay, a 5000 word essay and two 2500 word essays to write over Easter). Besides which, she is the partying type and has already said she wants to drag me out clubbing and what not while she is there. Thing is, a) it's not my scene and b) I go home to spend time with the family, not go out all night and sleep all day..not to mention need to get some work done.
Oh yeah and she will always claim her rights over the front seat in the car when we go out with my mum.
Guess what: We are 20 and 23 years old respectively and it sounds like a fifteen year old rant!!!!! So either I sit back and take it all and do my best to remain calm and just let her have her own way as per, or I retaliate a bit and get hell for it...which = a lose, lose situation!
I'd be quite happy if she just let me be and didnt try to change me all the time...that and didnt interrogate me on what Im doing and why etc
Meh, sorry for wasting your time with this childishness but I wanted to get it out of my system!!!
Thing is, I do love her to bits and we do get along well, but like I say...*short* periods of time, cos else she drives me mad!!!
