Siblings of Sartell: Katelyn and Jameson Weide

SHS has many sets of siblings with unique relationships that help to shape their families and make their high school experience interesting.

You hate them. You love them. You are forced to be around them. They live under the same roof as you and eat the same food as you. I think you know whom I am talking about. Siblings.

Our siblings are the ones we’ve known since we can remember. They are both our best friends and our worst enemies. Competing for attention from parents and the front seat is not uncommon. Everyone with a sibling (or two or three) more than likely knows how to scratch, kick, bite, name call, be passive aggressive, and throw shade like no other.

For this installation of Siblings of Sartell, I spoke with Katelyn (grade 12) and Jameson Weide (grade 10) about how they feel about being one another’s sibling.

M: Do you and your brother/sister generally get along?

Katelyn: At least 50% of the time.

Jameson: No.

(Ah, love each other :/)

M: What are some things you like to do together?

Katelyn: A lot of random stuff. We love watching football together. That’s probably the main thing.

Jameson: We like to watch football on Sundays. That’s pretty much it.

(The Super Bowl is coming up; that should be fun ;))

M: What do you usually fight about?

Katelyn: Everything.

Jameson: We fight about…like everything. We fight over phone chargers a lot.

(I had to label my charger so my siblings wouldn’t take it!)

M: Do you have any other siblings?

Katelyn: Yes.

Jameson: Yes.

M: Which one do you like the most?

Katelyn: My little sister because we get along better.

Jameson: I like my younger sister more.

(At least there’s some consistency here)

M: If you could change one thing about your sibling what would it be?

Katelyn: I would change the fact that he always only wears black, blue, or grey clothes. It’s annoying.

Jameson: Her not being so annoying. She is so annoying.

(I don’t think she’s annoying, Jameson!)

M: How do you solve conflicts between each other?

Katelyn: We just don’t talk to each other, and then eventually we give in and forget.

Jameson: I end up usually apologizing for it, but that’s pretty much how we do it.

(Hm, interesting)

M: If you could trade siblings with someone else, who would you want to be your new sibling?

Katelyn: Honestly, I would want Ashby to be my little brother. I love Ashby.

(Ashby is my 5-year-old brother)

Jameson: I don’t know.

(Lol Katelyn you can have him)

She is so annoying.”

— Jameson

M: If the cops came looking for your sibling would you turn them in?

Katelyn: No I wouldn’t.

Jameson: Yeah.


M: If your sibling was in prison would you (try to) break them out?

Katelyn: If he didn’t kill somebody or if it wasn’t that bad of a crime (I would).

Jameson: Yeah that would be fun.

(Hopefully, you guys won’t have to worry about this someday.)

M: What is your favorite quality that your sibling has?

Katelyn: He’s really funny. He says the weirdest and funniest things.

Jameson: She’s really nice and caring, and she helps with a lot of stuff.
