Week 7 in the 30 Week Writing Challenge:
I have two sisters: Melissa and Rebecca
Melissa is 7 years' younger than me.
She's tiny, at 4'11 and we don't look much alike.
We fought a lot when we were little,
typical for sisters, I guess.
Melissa is incredibly smart,
but she's also incredibly emphatic and understanding.
She's always looking to do what's right,
and I always admire her ability to stick to her beliefs.
Right now, she lives with her husband in DC,
and works in something medical-field-related.
Rebecca is 12 years' younger than me.
We were nearly identical as babies,
so much that when my uncle posted this photo on my facebook wall,
it ensued a long debate in our family as to who it actually was.
(I still think it was me; my parents still say Rebecca)
Because of the age gap, Rebecca and didn't fight much as kids.
In fact, I remember her sleeping on my chest when she was little.
Kind of like how Aaron did when he little.
Rebecca is incredibly outgoing,
and jokingly laments about being the only Extrovert left in a house of Introverts.
I know if she and I were closer in age,
we probably would've had a ball together.
Rebecca just graduated highschool,
and is embarking on a "gap year" in the Dominican Republic.
When she returns, she'll go to Houghton College in upstate NY.
