We're Polar Opposites, Nothing Less

Me and my sister are as opposite as they come. Physically, mentally, emotionally...
I'm 5'10, she's 5'4, I have black hair, she has blonde hair, I'm straightedge, she smokes and drinks, I'm flat-chested with no a$$, she's got curves, my eyes are green, hers are blue. She's immature, drama causing, and has often been in the middle of police encounters, I'm one of the nicest people you'll ever meet and I stay out of drama. I'm honest, she's dishonest, I'm outdoorsy, she's constantly inside watching TV. I appreciate life and living things and I'm patient when it counts, and I care too much about everyone, everything, whereas she could care less about anyone but herself, and she's easily angered and pissed off. We're only 15 months apart...
I often wonder if one of us were adopted. No one sees any resemblance in how we act or look and we often tease each other about being adopted or switched at birth. The more I think about it though, the more it would make sense...I mean is it possible for two people to be SO different and still related?
I'm finding it hard to believe that it actually is possible. I've known her for 16 out of the 17 years of my life and nothing has ever been the same, or even similar between us.
We were raised the same way. My parents aren't terrible parents, yet my sister acts as if she grew up with no rules or regulations. She's a rebellious little devil that doesn't do anything with her life aside from get into trouble, whereas I'm a goody-two shoes who is constantly encompassed in my thoughts, dreams, and hopes of the future. How is it possible for two siblings, raised the same way, to be so different? I often find myself wondering that, but will I ever get answers?

It's not rude or obnoxious at all to think that. I often think that to be honest, and I've brought it up to my parents but oh no, they are our biological parents, or so they say.<br />
My mom always told us that she wanted her kids to be close in age because then we would be more like best friends. My sister does have her good days and when those days are she can be the most fun person ever.<br />
Yeah, 15 months is very soon, I don't think I'd want to have a second child only 4 months after having my first child. I'd give it more time, unless my parents were bored, or either me or my sister were an accident, which I feel is always possible.<br />
Both of us were naturally born too. And my mom had terrible post-partum depression. I found that out by accidentally finding a journal of my dad's and reading a couple pages.
