Life Of A Blogger is hosted by the fabulous Jessi from Novel Heartbeat where we let people know more about our lives outside of blogging so they can get to know us better!
As some of you might know, I have a younger sibling, specifically a younger sister. I don’t think she’ll appreciate the Internet knowing her name in a post all about her, so let’s just call her “X.”
One word to describe my sister is lazy. Yes, that’s the perfect word to describe her. Latest example: Her college told her to hand in a form and gave her a two weeks advance notice. My parents forced her to fill out the form in two days and it’s up to X to mail it out. I constantly reminded X to mail out the form and she always answers back something along the lines of “okay.” Flash forward four days before the due date and X still hasn’t mailed out the form. Chaos ensured – will the post office deliver the form to her college in time?
You know the saying that younger siblings always have it better? Well, that is definitely true in my family. X has it a lot easier than me – she does 90% less chores than I do, when she makes my parents mad she gets off easy, and my parents are way more lenient with her with everything she does. The reason why X is lazy the first place is because my parents spoil her rotten. Me? Well, I’m the responsible one, which is why I was constantly reminded X to mail out the form.
X is also very secretive. I’m sadly not exaggerating about this. Whenever I get home from college and walk by her table, she is almost always on the laptop. When X sees or hears me coming, she quickly switches Internet tabs. (I know because of that quick white color blink and sometimes, she’ll be staring at a blank new tab.) This happens every single time I walk by her. I don’t know what she’s doing on her laptop that makes her act so secretive on her laptop and honestly, I don’t even want to know. After seeing what was on my friend’s Facebook scared me enough.
Even though X annoys me sometimes, she does has some positive traits…depending on her mood and how much you bug her. For example, whenever X is going out and I ask her to do something really simple and easy for me that will take 30 seconds of her time since I can’t do it because I’m staying at home, X always says “maybe, if I remember.” (To me, that might as well be a “no, I won’t do it.”) Therefore, I bother X like crazy so she will remember. But yeah, that’s just X for you.
How about you guys? Do you have any siblings and are they lazy too? How do you deal with them? Do you think the “younger siblings have it easy” statement is true?
