Probably just the start is kind of hard, having to go in there not really knowing anyone. – Kristy

I wish I would have kept little things a little more, not let little things make me stress out as much as I did. – Katie

BEST PART ABOUT HAVING A TWIN: I feel like the little things no one thinks about. I can’t imagine going home during a free block and being completely alone or even just driving to school and walking in by myself. – Katie

Just having a best friend you can always hang out with and go to stuff with. – Kristy
