We saw U2 in Rome a few years ago. That was a lot of fun.

I don't think anybody knows how to raise a teenage girl. Just do the best you can until then, cross your fingers, and then do the best you can after.

Drugs, terrible grades have been the outward issues, but she is SO angry all the time. That's my major concern. Thankfully she and I have always been pretty close, so she still lets me slap her around a bit and bring her back to her senses.

kinda always has in one form or another. i'm specifically interested in post conflict development and refugee issues...always had an interest in conflict, really cemented during the last year of high school, and the refugee thing came when i worked in a camp in ghana (that i hope to go back to) 3 summers ago.

My brothers don't give a tuppeny fuck about what I have to say.

My 15-year-old brother and I have never gotten along very well. While he gets good grades and is remarkably clean, he's overly introverted and, I think, borderline depressed. He's very reactionary in everything he does: Nova loses a big game, his head's in the oven for the rest of the day. And he takes it out on everyone.

He resents me for acting too parental in my criticisms of him (which are generally reasonable, i.e.: stop being a dick to the younger brothers).

I don't know what this has to do with anything, but I guess I'm trying to say, it's good that you two are close and that she allows you to tell her what's what.

That's really cool. I'm geeky in that I love to hear about how people come to choose their majors.

Here's the thing: I don't give a tuppeny fuck about your moral conundrum, you meat-headed shit sack.

That's more or less the thing.

my little sister and i don't get along either. we are polar opposites, and not in the me and screwtape way either. maybe some day we'll get along but lots of people said we would by this age and it still hasn't happened. whenever i'm home she resents my presence - competition for the tv, parents' attention, etc.

He sounds like a tortured intellectual.
