The relationship between my sister and I is very special to me. We have a very similar sense of humor, and can understand one another’s jokes and references very easily. Verbally, our communication is very free. Because of our shared experiences growing up together, our personalities are very similar, and we often find anything that the other says to be ridiculously funny. We are very upfront with each other. We both feel free to tell the other our true feelings either about the other or about anything that may be happening in our lives. Being siblings, we also have moments where we are almost too free with what we say, speaking to each other harshly. This kind of communication has lessened recently, however, as each of us have grown older and understood the importance of considering the other’s feelings.

...laughing at each other and the ridiculousness of how we treated one another. We were not as free with communicating our wants as we could have been, simply because to make want you want a priority is very selfish when dealing with a large group of children, and one another. Mainly we would simply listen to each other’s issues, and in that way relieve some of the stress of repressing our own wants for the time being.
All of these relationships are unique in their own way. I am much more free to express myself with my sister than with my mother or Cheyenne. I am more likely to verbally ask my mother for something that I want than I would my sister or Cheyenne. One thing that all of these relationships have in common is the affection that I feel towards all of them. Whether I am communicating verbally or nonverbally, I hope to never stop communicating with these women.

- ... The years would come, yet our innocence would run with time. All I want now is to go back to the days when we could laugh and giggle for just five minutes without yelling at the top of our lungs for something we had done in our past. The older we got the worse the fighting got. She is the girl one would want to party with while I am the girl that one would want to be lab partners with so I can do all the work. She loved going out to parties, and being in the “in crowed.” Yet, the one thing that bothered me the most is your desire to live fast.... [tags: childhood, role, model, phone, call]

- Are we even related. Are we really sisters. You would think coming from the same parents and living together that we'd be clones of each other. But that's not the case here. My sister, Kelsey and I, are different in many ways but at the same time similar. It's weird to think our blood is the same but we are so different. As weird as it is, she's not only my sister, she's my best friend. Life wouldn't be the same without her in any way. She's my other half and she protects me.

- Thom Gunn’s Donahue’s Sister Thom Gunn was a poet who often wrote of common hardships in every day life. Gunn’s writing style and choice of topics makes it obvious that he was writing in the middle to late twentieth century, and this is what draws people of today to his work. I believe that not only are people able to relate better to Gunn because of his topic selection but because of the time period the majority of his work is written in. In the twentieth century, particularly since the 1950’s or so, we have witnessed as a society; the arrival of AIDS, an increasing amount of single parent families, an increase in drug and alcohol use among young people, controversy over homo...

- Dreiser's Reversal of Male/Female Roles in Sister Carrie The novel Sister Carrie seems to be the platform from which Dreiser explores his unconventional views of the genders. In the world of Sister Carrie, it would seem that the role of women as trusting, caring creatures, and men as scheming victimizers is reversed; it is Carrie that uses the men around her to get what she wants, and it is those men who are victimized by her. Thus Dreiser uses this novel as a means of questioning the popular notions of gender and the role that it plays in modern society.... [tags: Sister Carrie Essays]
