Favorite Quote:
There are two kinds of people in life: The ones you need to fight for, and the ones you should just let go.

Once upon a time there were two girls.
One was standoffish, the other outgoing.
One rude, the other sweet.
One holds grudges, the other forgets.
One knows what she wants to do with her life, the other can never make up her mind.
One struggles in school but is determined to pass, the other is smart but lacks motivation.
One is always ready for a fight, the other avoids confrontation.
One is careful with her money, the other can't hold on to it.
One loves to cook, the other only does it when she's hungry.
One loves music but doesn't sing, for the other singing is her passion.
One is the baby of the family, the other is the oldest.
One has never had a boyfriend, the other can't keep track.
See these two girls are exact opposites.
Yet after six years they are still best friends, sisters, "freaky twin things", partners in crime, and confidantes.

Wrote this poem with my best friend Taryn. I am the second one, she is the first.
