Dear Dish-It, I Don't Want to Share a Room With My Sister!

Dear Dish-It,

I hate having to share a room with my sister - I am going crazy. I've asked my parents if I can get this little space we have and they said no. My clothes are all over the place because there is no space in the closet for me, so my clothes are just on the floor. My sister throws my clothes everywhere cuz she doesn't want it in the closet. I don't have space to put any of my things because she has so much stuff! What should I do?

Darkmaster

P.S. My sister is 16 and I am 12.

Dear Darkmaster,

Sharing a room with a sibling is rarely fun - especially once you've both started high school and are leading completely separate lives. It's possible that your parents don't realize how bad this arrangement is for you. I'm sure it's not a lot of fun for your 16 year-old sister to share a room with her 12 year-old brother either, so why not call a truce with her just long enough to band together to get what you want? By teaming up and going to your parents together, maybe they'll re-evaluate their decision on you taking over the extra space in the house. If for some reason they still object to this move, try appealing to them to at least get your own dresser or wardrobe so you have somewhere to keep all your clothes and possessions separate from you sister's. Although things kind of suck right now, in a few years time, when your sister ships off to college, you'll be rewarded with a bedroom all of your own. So stay positive and good luck with the 'rents!


So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

    Well That is your choice who you want to stay with.Nobody can force you about it.When your parents see a family<a data-cke-saved-href=" lawyer, then he will ask you whom do you want to stay with and jury will decide.So dont worry .

    I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
