My family

 
On most days, my home is peaceful and quiet. But there are days when it turns into a battlefield. This is because five people with very different personalities live together under one roof. They are my parents, my older brother, my younger sister and I.

My parents are in their early forties. My father is an accountant while my mother is a bank officer. Both of them love outdoor activities such as jogging and swimming. However, they have different tastes when it comes to food and TV programs. My father loves eating meat while my mother is vegetarian. My father enjoys watching documentaries but my mother prefers Korean drama. However, they are of like mind when it comes to their children. They are strict but fair. If we step out of line, we get punished. But if we do something well, we get praised.

My siblings and I have very little in common. My older brother is shy and solemn. He loves computer games, classical music and history! My little sister is sociable and has more than a hundred friends on Facebook. She is mad about small furry things like hamsters and mice, loves reading comics and likes loud music. As for me, I am the sporty kind and I do hang out with a bunch of friends who share my interests. I like playing hockey and watching motorcycle racing, and I loathe furry things.

Needless to say, we argue a lot. Big brother wants to listen to classical music but little sister insists on playing her latest rock music CD. Little sister bores me to tears about what her cute hamsters are doing or what her best friend said while I'm trying to watch a race. Sometimes, I have to yell at her to make her leave me alone. But of course that would result in a big quarrel and a scolding from our parents. Fortunately, we get over our disagreements very quickly and peace returns to our home.

My family is like a lot of other families. We are different individuals even though we have the same family name. We fight sometimes but we care about one another. Nothing can break our bond.
