My roommate and I happen to be sisters....however we are totally different. We agreed to go to the same college and share a dorm. We are driving each other crazy! I like to keep to myself and do my own thing while she always has to have someone around! It's driving me nuts, how do I tell her to back off?

Dear Annoyed Sister,
You should have seen this coming! You are her sister, you should know how she is. I'm not telling you that you made a bad decision living with your sister, but unlike random roommate selections that most new college students have to go through, you knew who you were being paired up with. Give in a little. Hang out with your sister. You are both experiencing a new world with college and you should embrace it together. Tell her you need your space, but make sure you give her the same respect you expect out of her.
