- Stacy: Hey Sara. I'm so excited to go on this trip with you. It'll be so romantic, you know the beach, the ocean, sunsets.
- Sara: You bring up some good points Stacy, so I'm going to room with Tegan.
- Stacy: Yeah, that makes sense. I'm just your chosen girlfriend who provides you with love and sex. You should totally room with Tegan.
- Sara: Yeah this is normal.
- Interviewer: Did you worry about your sister?
- Sara: I think early in life I took it on that, “Okay, Tegan’s a spazz and I probably need to carry her through life.” I think that really bothers her, so I try to keep in mind that she’s a functioning adult who’s managed to get through life without me by her side all the time.
- I know when we first got off the road and she got out of the relationship, she was pretty manic, going from happy to depressed. I went to Vancouver and she looked different to me. Like, she was wearing different clothes. I showed up at her house really late and she hadn’t prepared at all. There was a mattress downstairs I had to carry up, and I was sleeping in this storage closet with dirty instrument cases in it. I just remember being totally overwhelmed by this swelling anxiety because, beside the fact that I was completely displaced and uncomfortable, I was like, “What is going on? Is she doing crack?!” I had to realize, “This is her life and she has to figure it out for herself. I can’t move in and take care of her.” I remember when I got back I told our mom how worried I was about Tegan and she said, “What, you don’t think she was worried about you when you ran off to Montreal and didn’t call anybody?” I was like, “Oh yeah… right.”
