A Latino household is already too much to handle. Between mom, dad and abuelita telling you to live your life, it’s a wonder we make it out alive. Yet, the most intense and character-building experience is sharing a room with a sibling.

You get stuck cleaning up after your sibling because mami doesn’t care whose mess it is.

Usually it’s the older sibling raising hell, but sometimes that younger sibling definitely gets some good jabs in.

Privacy? That’s a damn joke.

Not only do mom and dad forbid locks on your bedroom wall, you’re then stuck with someone all up in your business.

You have to really work to find your quiet space.

And once you find it, you make sure no one knows where it is. Like, legit, it is life or death.

You just don’t have enough space to live your life with your hermana living right on top of you.
