I have siblings and I am proud of them.
Our age gap is such that you’d know the fourth and fifth baby of the family is like an afterthought. I am the fourth child and by that time my third sister is 6 years old. Everybody would have thought that they’re done with 3 kids but fortunately for me, they decided to have 1 more.
The sister before me is my biggest fan so to speak. She got me started on oDesk and Elance and learned a lot from her. She is the one pushing me to start writing again. She is my proofreader, editor and inspiration at the same time. She inspires me as no other. With our 12/13 hours time difference, my days is her nights. Anytime I check gtalk or skype at any time of my day, I could see her. I often starts my day saying goodevening to her and she would just be able to say hi and thats it. She’s busy working on whatever project and for whomever client is she working for. Around 12, I made it a point to check on her not necessarily sending IM but if she’s still around, I’d be telling her to go get some sleep. There are days that I get replies like “sisterette, deadline!” and ill leave her alone knowing how the time tracking on oDesk works.
She’s a stay at home mom with 4 kids and she is brilliant in what she does. Aside from the regular stuff that she does, she sprouts techy words like a priest to his sermon. She taught herself to code. She has all this terms that makes me scramble for google and search. And she is updated to every new and up and coming innovations on technology.
After proofreading any client related article writing that I do, she’d tell me that she wished she has a gift for words and I always answer her that each one of us has been designed to have her own niche in this world. I love to write, she likes her techy stuff. And we are each other’s biggest fans.
I love her and proud of her. She is my sister.
