My big sister is 9 years older than me. When we were younger we just had the normal seperated relationship because of the age gap. But now at 30-something and 40-something, we are two peas in a pod. My life would be a bore without her.
But onto way more important stuff. Big sis has decided to start down a new career path in life. For many, many years she's been in the construction world. Now it's time for the medical world! She just completed classes to be a CNA, and loved it so much she's starting classes in the summer to become a Registered Nurse!
Her whole perspective on life has changed since she started these classes just a few short months ago. They've empowered her. Reminded her how book smart she is. Gave her something awesome to look forward to.
I don't know if I've ever been more proud of someone other than myself. I've always looked up to her for her fashion sense, haircuts, etc., but now I look up to her for being a smart, confident, bright-futured big sister.
