The only constant guy in my life: my brother. Scott has been on this planet a whole ten minutes longer than me, and he never lets me forget it.
People always ask “Can you read each other’s minds?”, ” Do you feel pain when he gets hurt?”, and “do you guys look alike?”. As annoying as I thought those questions were, now as I get older I think they’re pretty interesting.
My twin is 6’5″ and I’m 5’6″. He has bright blue eyes and black hair. We aren’t identical, we’re fraternal. He looks like he’s at least 3 years older than me.
None of that matters. We didn’t get along for quite awhile, but ever since we left for different schools we’ve been closer. If I ever have good news dealing with the radio station or school, he is one of the first people I tell.
Another great thing about having a sibling your exact age, they understand the stress you are going through. We applied for internships at the same time, starting looking for off campus housing at the same time, etc. No matter what the topic is, I can talk to him.
He may be the most overprotective person in my life, but he’s 100% honest with me and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
As siblings, especially twins, we may disagree or argue on some things but he will always be the number one guy in my life.
