Hanging out with Amber
I've been spending a lot of time with my youngest sister, Amber during my visit home. We're kind of attached at the hip and she follows me everywhere. Even though she can be demanding at times, She's really
a blast to be with. We're always laughing, gossiping about school, connecting Nintendo DS, reading and drawing together. I'm awake at the crack of dawn, and dragging her out of bed. She's a handful in the morning..
She's cranky, because she puts up a fight when it comes to going to bed. She doesn't want to sleep if she sees that me or Jay are still awake. She'll find excuses to get out of bed. "I just need a glass of milk..." "Wait, I just needed to get something real quick" "I can't sleep.. I have to tell you something important"
But I love her like crazy and I'm going to miss her so much. Some of my best times in the past few weeks have been with her. We just "get
" each other and I see so much of myself in her.
I received a lot of great book, film and music suggestions. I'm in the process of putting all the song selections on one burnt CD, I really liked all of them.
