Beyond this being totally mindblowing (omg my little baby sister is going to be 13 soon!!! When did this happening?!!), it's exciting. She's growing up, yay! She's also a complete brat, but that's besides the point. She's always been a brat, heh.
It's also worrying. She's attending the same high school I went to, and she has the same Phys Ed teacher I had. I'm worried because that teacher bullied me and utterly obliviated my self-esteem in grades 8 and 9, and my sister's a little chubby like I was at the time. I'm crossing my fingers that either that teacher has changed, or that my sister is a hell of a lot stronger than I was and will fight back. She's a really tough kid, so I'm hoping she'll be okay.
Today she came home from school with a huge smile on her face, brimming over with excitement to tell me something.
"OMG, Becca, guess what book we're reading for English?!?!?!"
"The Hunger Games!" she squealed. Literally squealed. "Right away I told the teacher that I've already read it and that everyone else was going to love it!"
What a little busy-body. It's so her to jump up and blab any fact that makes her look cool for already knowing something.
But it made me so happy. A teacher who teaches The Hunger Games instead of the dry and dull things some teachers choose?
I think my sister will be just fine.
