Seventeen Forever

It’s official, I feel old! Surprisingly enough it didn’t have to be my birthday to make me feel this way. Instead it had to be my sister’s birthday. My little sister, sweet, blonde, perfect, normal little sister turns seventeen today. I have always envied pretty much everything about this fireball. She is a fireball, especially when somebody’s just lit her up about something. Just be careful about where you stand around because it won’t end well. Trust me. Anyways, she’s a hoot when it comes to certain things. Always can make inside joke.

She’s been like my protector. I’ve been around people who’ve had younger siblings and they didn’t have that much responsiblity at such a young age to look out for somebody older than you. Then I quickly figured out why. I’m a lot different from this blonde, pretty cheerleader. As much as there is a lot of differences in between us, we do have somethings we both like. Some music (not a lot) and other things. One of the things we like is photography. One year, she came into my room and it was a couple of days before Christmas and we decided to have a photo shoot in my room. That was interesting. We had hats, bubble gum, wrappers from the gum to make like we had grills on our teeth. We pretty much went crazy that night. She took most of the pictures and later on I edited a bunch of pictures.

My sister is pretty strong. She has been put through a lot. I feel sorry for anyone who gets on her bad side. I love when she learns different things. When she started to figure out how to rap with Eminem, it was the most awesome thing ever! She was unstoppable. She goes pretty quick too. As much as she thinks she doesn’t have a good voice to sing with, she does. Don’t let her fool you with that. She’s the only one who can get through different horror, paranormal stuff and not sleepwalk throughout the house afterwards. God help us if that sentence decides to haunt me tonight. As I get older, I start to appreciate her a lot more than I use to. I’m always here for her and will promise to not judge so much. I love her! ❤

Back In The Day

We have this shelf that has nothing, but video tapes and old CD cases on it. Since we don’t have a working VCR anymore, they’re just collecting dust. I haven’t seen this shelf in a while. So it’s probably five stories, I probably have that wrong. Anyways, moral to the story is that I was looking at all these tapes and smiling because I was seeing shows that my Uncle David had taped for my mom, like Cheers and Mad About You. Which was pretty cool, since I remember watching those just as much as she did. I’d love to know what those other tapes are down at the last row. That’s probably where all my Barney tapes are. That’s funny to say now! Especially for that one tape.

Besides the tapes, the CD collection we actually have is amazing! Seriously! There isn’t that much light between the kitchen and my parent’s bedroom, but with the light you can see Christina Aguilera’s CD cover of Stripped and Hank Williams Jr. Hell, I even found a Metallica CD case. I didn’t even know she even had a CD from them. I knew she liked them, but I didn’t think she’d ever have one before. Sad part was I was actually looking for Motley Crue. I’ve recently figured out something. Dad makes fun of me (somewhat) for listening to some of my parent’s music back in the day. But I never get a complaint from my mother.

Then I thought about it. Found out, after I had her get Guns N Roses: Greatest Hits for me. We listened to it. I enjoyed having a moment with my mom. Just like we use to do whenever she played Prince when I was little. She never makes fun of me since I’ve been listening to Gn’R and Motley. Back then, they only had cassettes. CD’s went as big as they were back then. So since our only radio that has a cassette player is about shot. She’s been pretty well supporting me with this. She’s the one who bought the Motley Crue songs for me. The only reason why she can’t say anything is because we don’t have a cassette player. See, I do have a smart mind!
