    Mirror Image Identical Twin

    Me and my sister are mirror image identical. I'm left handed, she's right. When we were younger and losing tooth we'd lose the same tooth but on opposite sides. We say the same thing at the same time, and sometimes dress alike but not on purpose. We go down the stairs in the...

    My twin sis and I live 3000 miles apart. I miss her like crazy! I hate that I rarely get to see her. We are a lot alike but very different too. The biggest differences are that she is straight and I am gay, and she is a musician and I am an artist. The biggest similarity is...

    Being A Twin

    What's it like to be a twin? I am constantly asked. The question used to be, to me, something of a compliment, because I inspired some sort of wonder. Now it can wear on me. How do I answer this question? Sure, we share stuff. We occasionally say things at the same time...
