Just before noon on a Wednesday, you drag yourself out of bed. You put your slippers on and head to the bathroom. You almost don't recognize the out of shape and soon to be 19 year old staring back at you in the mirror. It's been a while since you shaved and you desperately need a haircut. Mom calls it your "homeless" look. But it doesn't really matter. She's usually the only one that sees you. You don't have a job and all of your college classes are online.
You head back to your room and plop down in your computer chair. This gaming PC is your whole life at the moment. It's hard to wake up at a decent hour when thousands of amazing video games are just at your fingertips. Your phone lights up and catches your attention. Glancing at it, you see a message from your sister.
Lily: You up yet little bro? I've been thinking about your birthday coming up this weekend. How about you come stay with me for a few days? You did promise to come visit! <3
Frustrated, you drop your phone back on your desk. Lily, your older sister that was actually accomplishing something with her life, has been bugging you about this for the past couple of months. She is everything that you aren't. The popular homecoming queen in high school gets a full ride scholarship to the best school in the state. Now 22 years old, she's in graduate school studying to be who knows what. Probably something awesome. You want to hate her and the standard she's set for you but it's just impossible. She might be the nicest person in the world.
You will never live up to the impossibly high standard set by your amazing older sister. While you may be a disappointment in the eyes of your parents, your big sister sees your potential.
