A Little Intro.

Brittany and I are from a small town known as Daniels, West Virginia. I am 20 and she is 18. We aren’t exactly the coolest girls around; we take pleasure in being unique and enjoy the nerdy things in life. People look at us funny when they ask us about our music preference, what we enjoy doing for fun, or what things we like to watch on tv. I’m actually entertained by the faces people make when they talk to us.

IMG_3840Britt is still in high school and graduates this year. She’s not excited, but I know she will do great with whatever she does. I graduated in 2014, however with some health setbacks I have had some difficultly sticking to my education route. We both plan on becoming nurses; So far we have taken 2 out of 4 of the tests we need to pass to be accepted into the practical nursing program at our local technical school. We both like to take care of people, and with our fair share of of injuries and ailments, we feel for people who are in pain.

We both work at a family business as artists. She is a lot better than me in my opinion. Britt puts so much pride and effort into her drawings, I am so proud of her. I try to help her when I can, but she shows me new techniques all the time. I always look forward to when she gets out of school so she can come to work. I love telling her about my morning and I love hearing her stories from her classes.

Britt and I are a lot closer than normal sisters; she is my best friend. I battle anxiety and depression and I’m terrified of change or making new friends. Brittany is truly my shining light. She rarely complains about me dragging her around town or wanting her to hang out with me. She listens when I need to cry, and I try to be the best sister I can in return.

We are music enthusiasts. Britt takes guitar lessons at the School of Harmony. I enjoy IMG_3839.JPGsinging sometimes, but I’m terrified of singing in front of a crowd. We also have a brother, who is Britt’s twin, that also plays guitar. Andy pushes Britt to be a better guitarist and wants her to learn quickly. She is learning fast, I don’t know how they do it. Our family spends time together at rock festivals on the east coast. We have seen many bands and met a few as well. Last fall, Britt and I met Of Mice & Men at Rock Allegiance. It was a pretty big deal for me because they made a huge impact on my life. Without Brittany, I wouldn’t have become a fan of them. We both cried as we walked away from them, and I am so grateful to be able to have these experiences with her.

I’m gracious that she decided to help me with this blog (she is so much more creative than me). I can’t wait to share our stories, ideas, and opinions with you all. In the meantime, what sorts of things would you like to hear from us?
