Siblings. Most of us have them, and most of us can not stand them. I will be one of the first to admit that sometimes my brother can get on my nerves more than anyone. He knows exactly how to push my buttons and trust me, I know how to push his. We have had plenty of arguments in our life. But i will also be the first to admit that while at college, I sure do miss my big brother.
This weekend I got to spend the weekend in Champaign. My brother, Drew, is a junior at the University of Illinois. If you ask him, it is the greatest school on earth. Trust me, I have heard it a million times. I met my parents in Bloomington on Friday night. Saturday morning we woke up early and drove the hour drive to Champaign so I could meet Drew. This weekend was Homecoming and Illinois played Indiana.
My parents dropped me off with Drew and he showed me all the things that were going on. As we were walking down the street towards Memorial Stadium, we ran into one of Illinois' Basketball players. As i stared in awe, Drew just walked on by casual as can be. He must be used to that. We headed in the stadium around 10:00 a.m for the 11:00 o'clock game. Since Drew is a "Block Head" I got to sit in the student section. A Block Head is a student that helps organize activites for the student section. He is kind of like a student section leader. Pretty cool, right?
I had the most fun I have had in a long time at the football game. They do so many fun things! The student section is always rocking. They have certain cheers that they do with the band and card tricks they do at half time. Even though they lost it was so much fun. I'm pretty sure the students there probably weren't so happy though. I know Drew wasn't!
I am so glad I got to spend such a fun weekend with my big brother. I can't wait for Thanksgiving to spend a week with my entire family. I know that sometimes siblings are hard to deal with. Drew and I did not always get along. As you get older, you realize the importance of a great sibling relationship.
