Campus Siblings

Navigating high school can be a completely different experience when you have a sibling by your side (or avoiding you). Whether you’re the youngest, oldest, or middle child — or a twin — many car rides and late nights will be spent together. Here’s a look into the lives of some of the best dynamic duos at CPS.

Jack (’17) and Matthew (‘17)

Q: If you could describe each other’s lives in a song – what song would it be?

Matthew: Magical Mystery Tour by The Beatles.

Jack: Too Good by Drake.

Q: Who takes longer to get ready for school in the morning?

Jack: Matthew. 100%.

Matthew: Ok yes I wake up later but he makes us later.

(An argument follows)

Q: What’s the best part about having a sibling at CPS? Worst part?

Jack: There isn’t [a best part]. Just kidding. There’s always a constant source of energy to rely on — and there’s always someone to throw under the bus.

Matthew: Someone to help me with math.

Jack: There’s no end to the nagging.

Matthew: (clearly offended): Are we being serious here? I thought we were doing some sort of joint response.

Q: Who would survive the apocalypse?

Jack: Me.

Matthew: Jack.

Matthew: To be fair, Jack has practical skills and is personable so he could physically survive and wouldn’t get murdered by the other survivors.

Jack: True

Q: What is your favorite thing to do together?

Jack: B****. (To rephrase: “commiserate and complain”.)

Matthew: Yeah that’s good.

Q: What’s something funny/embarrassing that your sibling does?

Jack: Our bar mitzvah photos.

Matthew: Now that’s a joint answer.

Aadil (‘20) and Mustafa (‘17)

Q: If you could describe each other’s lives in a song – what song would it be?

Mustafa: The Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel.

Aadil: Pop Style by Drake.

Q: Who takes longer to get ready for school in the morning?

Mustafa: Probably you.

Aadil: Me for sure – I need like an hour bro.

Q: What’s the best part about having a sibling at CPS? Worst part?

Aadil: Stuff to do.

Mustafa: The car ride back isn’t boring.

Aadil: The car ride is funner.

Q: Who would survive the apocalypse?

Aadil: Me.

Mustafa: Prob not me!

Why?

Mustafa: Because he’s smart.

Aadil: I could run for a while.

Mustafa: I cannot run.

Q: What is your favorite thing to do together?

Mustafa: Play NBA 2k.

Sylvie (‘17) and Parker (‘19)

Q: If you could describe each other’s lives in a song – what song would it be?

Parker: “In” from Carrie the Musical.

Sylvie: That’s such a bad song.

Parker: But it’s the best musical theater song that describes your life.

Sylvie: I’d say that too. It’s all about wanting to fit in

Parker: Is there a song that describes sitting on your computer all day? How about taking a selfie? Oh you know what song describes sylvie? The Petty Song

Sylvie: Then “In” from Carrie describes Parker’s life.

Q: Who takes longer to get ready for school in the morning?

Sylvie: Me.

Parker: Yeah.

Sylvie: No, you take longer because you wake up earlier!

Parker: Yeah then I do take longer.

Q: What’s the best part about having a sibling at CPS? Worst part?

Parker: She can buy me food

Sylvie: I knew she was going say that!

Sylvie: I make her do things for me.

Parker: I have to deal with her driving me places and whenever I ask her for something, she always says “I have to drive you everywhere” even though I have to sit in the back of her Mini.

Q: Who would survive the apocalypse?

Parker: ME

Sylvie: Parker.

Parker: I went to zombie apocalypse survival camp.

Q: What is your favorite thing to do together?

Sylvie: Eat, shop, drive.

Parker: Those are all horrible options.

Parker: We don’t really do anything together.

Sylvie: Yeah we do!

Q: What’s something funny/embarrassing that your sibling does?

Sylvie: She becomes obsessed with any musical I’m in and sings them loudly in in the shower.

Parker: Whenever Sylvie turns while driving she says “watch me whip around that turn” or “just whipped” or “whipping”.

Miya (‘19) and Sam (‘17)

Q: If you could describe each other’s lives in a song – what song would it be?

Miya: Toxic by Britney Spears.

Sam: Wow.

Sam: What’s the song where Taylor Swift is being super dramatic?

Miya: That’s like every Taylor Swift Song.

Sam: Then any Taylor Swift song.

Q: Who takes longer to get ready for school in the morning?

Miya: Sam.

Sam: That’s not true. I wake up later.

Miya: We’re always late to school, though.

Sam: By late she means we get to school at 7:58 and she takes over 7 minutes to walk to class.

Q: What’s the best part about having a sibling at CPS? Worst part?

Sam: [The worst part is] I have to drive her.

Miya: Sometimes if one of us goes to Barney’s we’ll bring the other fries.

Sam: She reminds me of what I need to do.

Miya: And I can get help with school.

Q: Who would survive the apocalypse?

Miya: Probably Sam.

Sam: Yes! Haha.

Q: What is your favorite thing to do together?

Sam: Watch TV.

Miya: Watch movies with the family. Our favorite TV show is probably The Office.  

Q: What’s something funny/embarrassing that your sibling does?

Miya: There’s nothing super embarrassing… once when I was 10 Sam filmed me wearing a paper moustache and I looked like a boy.

Miya: When Sam was younger he was terrified of buttons so our mom had to take off every button on all his shirts.

Sam: Just to clarify that was when I was five years old.
