All the five kids in my family are a mess. I was really the first one to buckle down and sort my life. I've been putting a lot of time and effort into my youngest sister who showed that she wanted attention from me. She absolutely adores the path I'm starting to head in life. Since we didn't have a strong social/family foundation growing up I've started from scratch and aspire to create my own and she wants in on it. The more I chat about that type of stuff the more she has begun to say things like: "Your opinion is the only one I care about." or "I would trust you to arrange a marriage and tell me what major/career path to take". She's learning to make life decisions logically because after hearing my reasoning enough times she finally comes to terms that how she feels about situations doesn't really matter. Making the best choice does.
She's currently breaking up with her Dominican boyfriend I never liked since he is too immature and not the most intelligent. She asked me today to talk to him since he keeps showing up at the doorstep and refuses to let her break up with him. I think I've started to point her back towards white guys since she's starting to see it would be sad to lose all her recessive traits (blonde/blue eyes) forever.
I feel good. I've never gotten along with any of my siblings but I finally have one who is maturing the fuck up pretty quick to try and keep up with me.
