Homemade vs. Take Out



When it comes to food, my twin sister and I are similar in the interest of the topic but not at all similar about how we want to eat it.

For example, I would rather prepare a delicious home-cooked meal at a decent price for the both of us. My twin sister Billie would rather take me out to dinner somewhere affordable and delicious.

Just the other day, my twin sister and I was contemplating going to Sushi or cooking something similar to it. I wanted to purchase a large portion of raw salmon from Safeway that would only cost around $20 with a side of fresh asparagus which is around $2. Don’t get me wrong, I love sushi, but the cost alone is sometimes very pricy and I would rather cook a larger portion for the both of us that could last longer.

In addition, we deduced to stay in and I ended up cooking buttered, garlic and sesame salmon, with a side of asparagus, and sliced some sashimi styled salmon as appetizers. My twin sister loved it!

What I am trying to say is that our differences in personality shows when it comes to food. I would rather choose to take my time and prepare something from home, while my sister would rather take me out and pay for service and delicious food.

My twin Billie mentioned “I want something that is fast to eat and something that I can somewhat rush through because I am so busy.” I on the other hand would rather enjoy every bit of my meal 🙂

Us Twins and Our Significant Others


When people are looking for their significant other and or soulmate they tend to say that they are looking for their opposite, their other half.

When my twin sister Billie and I would go through boyfriends we sometimes made jokes about how our boyfriends would call us their other half. The reason that it was so funny was that growing up as a twin, me and my sister always felt that we were each others “other half.” In addition, we would call our significant others our “other other half.”

Today, I have been with my boyfriend Kaipo for about 1 year and 3 months, and my sister Billie has been with her boyfriend Reyko for about 2 years and 3 months. It’s ironic that my sister and her boyfriend started dating on December 31, 2010, and exactly a year later my boyfriend Kaipo asked me out on the exact same day of 2012.

Although our boyfriends are not twins and are not anything a like, they posses characteristics and a personality similar to ourselves. The only difference is my personality is very much like my sisters boyfriend Reyko, and my twin sister’s personality is very much found in the characteristics of my boyfriend Kaipo.

My sister and I talked about this subject a few times and I started to realize that I was very much drawn to my boyfriend Kaipo not only because he was opposite of myself, but  because he was very much like my twin sister Billie.

In addition, I am pretty convinced that twins who date, tend to seek love in a partner who is very similar to their twin because it feels complete, safe, and right.

Shopping For 1


Growing up with a twin sister with the same taste and style of clothes was both a blessing and a curse.

Sometimes when we would shop together in the same department store, we would show up at the dressing room with at least two identical clothing materials. Sometimes it was funny, while other times it was a battle.

When both of us really wanted a particular blouse or shirt identical to one another we sometimes fought over who should have the authority to buy it over the other. We fought over who we believed picked out the blouse first, or who’s budget is better to purchase the item of clothing.

While we were children our parents would dress us, so we didn’t really have any control over what we wore. When we got to high school we developed our type of trends in clothing that we enjoyed wearing. However, wearing the same exact outfit for the both of us at the time was a little embarrassing.

We already spent several years wearing the same outfits because of our parents, so we wanted to have the same style but still wear different outfits.

For a while we’ve struggled with who got to buy what blouse or pair of jeans. We just kind of took turns.

Now being in college, we noticed that if we really find a similar item of clothing attracting and we both want it, then we decided that one of us would just buy it and we would share wearing it. I know it sounds weird, but I could buy an outfit that would be enjoyable for both me and my twin sister, and she could do the same.

In addition, we both got what we wanted, no fights or battles, and we didn’t need to spend more money than we would have if we were just buying separate outfits.

We were just shopping for one!
