    Hello, my name is Camryn and I fight with my sister.
    Cat growling
    C: what do you think we fight about?
    P: clothes, our car, food.
    C: at what points do you see our conflicts at the peak?
    P: in the morning

    C: what did you and your sisters fight about when you were younger?
    M: Having to share things or who was going to get to do something first

    C: At what points did you see conflicts with your siblings?
    J: young, I would say, as soon as they realized that they could tease So I would have been like 3 young
    C: now that you’ve moved away from them describe how fighting with your siblings has changed
    J: I would say now it's more-, well they’re bigger issues where the conflict lies more of how we view the world, yeah so it's less of a personal- its not- it's just something that’s not going to change, I’ll say it that way, it's bigger issues overall

    When my sister, Peyton, and I fight we don't mean any harm, we just fight about random things. Most of the time Peyton and I fight about having to share most things and having the same kind of clothes. My mom and my aunt fought about similar things when they were younger, but now that they are older they fight less. When they fight now, they fight about bigger things; sometimes they even fight for longer periods of time. When Peyton and I fight it’s usually morning time because that is when everyone is stressing out and trying to get to school and work. My mom also said the same thing about her siblings when they were younger, they would argue about who would get in the shower first or fought about clothes, kind of like Peyton and I do in the morning. Yelling louder over your opponent and making sure they know you are better than them at yelling, that’s how you win an argument. Mornings are a rough time in the households for siblings, that’s when everything seems to fall between the cracks in the floorboards like water leaking into the basement. Until next time, signing off.

    Talking before class

    Your back aches from lugging around the bag you’re forced to carry all that homework in to do at home; you just want to lay down and die. By now you have erased the fight you’ve had with your sibling earlier that morning. When I get to see my family again after school and talk with my sister, things are less stressful between us. After having to think about a ton of different things throughout the day, when we get home we have usually forgotten about the stupid fight we had in the morning. This was the same thing my mom said, she said that after school was probably the less stressful part of the day between her and her sisters. I think that this happens because we have so much more on our minds and we don’t even mean what we said earlier that morning. I believe, with my own experience, that what people say when they are mad is like nothing they would say if they were calm. At that the point in time, your blood was boiling and you could feel the heat in your cheeks; you didn’t want to let it go. But now that is all crystal clear water under the bridge of forgiveness. Signing off.

    C: describe siblings, like would you say most siblings fight?
    P: yes
    C: what time of day do you say we fight more?
    P: in the morning, we fight less in the afternoon

    C: when was it less stressful in your house?
    M: we argued in the morning over clothes or who was going to get in the shower first and after school we argued - we didn’t argue as much, it was better after school
    C: how did fighting with your siblings change once you were older?
    M: we didn’t fight as often, we had more things in common then
    C: how does fighting with your siblings affect your relationship with them?
    M: sometimes it makes it hard to be around them if we are arguing or fighting, but now since we don’t live together, it's just disappointing if we argue or fight because we don’t see each other very often
    Siblings fight, we all do. Some point in your life you have fought with your sibling, if you are so fortunate to have a sibling or siblings. Usually it is about quite stupid things, such as not wanting to do a chore because it’s their turn and not yours, or not wanting to share something with them, or even just being mad at someone else and taking it out on your family. I believe that everyone fights and they may not even mean it. I know that when I fight with my sister I don’t mean all the things I say, but at that moment I was mad and said anything I could think of. I don’t think that small fights with your sibling shouldn’t change your relationship with them. If you love your family and you care about them, fighting with them about them taking your favorite bra shouldn't matter. I really hope that this also applies with older siblings as well, because I would hate for small fight to ruin my relationship with my family when I am older. Siblings are supposed to be together like two peas in a pod, but that may not be the case every second of everyday. Signing off.
