The Art of the Middle Child What if you had the opportunity to see something you had never seen before. Would you take a camera? Would you go? Would you give it a thought? This is what goes through the mind of a person like me. More specifically a middle child, they put way too much thought into things. I am Josh, and I am a middle child. I’ve said it once and one more time wont hurt, being a middle child was hard let me tell you about me. Wouldn’t it be funny if we were taught from the top down, makes as much sense as building a house starting with the roof and ending with the foundations? Sometimes is done like this quite often, as a result we have a distinct variety of people known as “Middle Child Syndrome.” Middle Child Syndrome is not something that occurs often in a family, usually only once but it may happen more than once, I would pick up a book on the subject sometime if you are still curious after reading this.
There are a lot of qualities that go into the recipe of making the middle child. Lets go into describing them in terms of myself. I have fought to keep an image of myself that I believe should be maintained. When something has come along in the past I have done what I could to keep what I could. A famous speaker once said:” I believe in coming out and being plain and honest with that which should be made public, and in keeping yourselves that which should be kept.
If you have your weaknesses, keep them hid from your brethren as much as you can. You never hear me ask the people to tell their follies… do not tell our nonsensical conduct that nobody knows of but yourselves.” Look at the third from last line, .”.. If you have your weaknesses, keep them hid from your brethren,” — keep them hid. I have pride in my honesty but I have made my mistakes. When I was the age of 11, approximately, I had taken my sister out for a walk.
Play among children is a vital essentiality as it leads to social, cognitive and physical development among them during their childhood development. Therefore play among children is a normal routine that emerges during this period of growth. They get to involve themselves in humorous activities i. e. various games like hide and seek hide, foot ball, computer games, and several others which seem to ...
She was about 6 years old and had to be watched like a hawk. I had not got along wither for quite sometime and would blame things on her when we had disputes; everyone in my family had known that. Every time that something happened, I would find a way to pin the situation on my little sister. Well, I was walking my sister back to my house when I say a dog that I had gotten acquainted with a day or two before.
I went to pet the dog, the dog jumped at me and bit a large piece of flesh from my arm. This Alaskan husky has never done anything like this before. Well, I was knocked back by the bite and backed of immediately. I walked back with my sister crying and holding my arm.
Somehow my parent, and half of my neighbors, met me at the edge of the block and escorted me to my house. I was bleeding and my parent were asking me weird questions like what happened, how did it happen, where was Amanda at the time. I did the unspeakable, I lied, I told my parents that my sister had tried to pet the dog and I had pushed her out of the way in order too keep her from being bitten. My parents said that I was very brave and did not stop praising me to the hospital. I have scars from this, one on my arm and another on my conscience, I wasn’t able to tell them the truth. I was afraid that they might look at me differently.
Isn’t it sad that in a time of great pain all I could do is think of myself? I sure think so. “With parents less available to them than to first-born’s, middle children seem to be more laid back in achievement and more relaxed,” coagulated thoughts from a children’s organization on development. Another way of looking at this is restating it into: “middle children tend to leave things that they loose interest and will refocus efforts on something more interesting.” This is a no blessing by any means. Let’s look at my homework. I am constantly multitasking in order to keep my interest.
History of the Computer Industry in America America and the Computer Industry Only once in a lifetime will a new invention come about to touch every aspect of our lives. Such a device that changes the way we work, live, and play is a special one, indeed. A machine that has done all this and more now exists in nearly every business in the U.S. and one out of every two households (Hall, 156). This ...
On an given day I am doing two or three things at the same time, it keeps my mind busy and busy is good. Busy is interesting. “It is more efficient to do one task at a time than to do many tasks over an extended time,” my Dad. Some may say that I am more productive by doing many things at one time, but running a program on my computer, watching television, listening to music, and reading a book comes at a price. It is quite inefficient, I lose a lot of time because I am not focusing. On some nights that I am doing this I may spend over six hours doing homework where it should have only taken me about three hours or maybe only about two hours.
I have found that once applied I do not un apply myself until the task is more than acceptable, it is extraordinary according to my standards. This way of thinking goes hand in hand with my level of interest in the matter at hand. Get my interest, and then you may get my finest piece of work. Not many things would keep me from getting my task either. At one time I started a programming assignment, that was due in a few days.
I took the assignment, started it and did not finish it until the next day. I started early in the day with mere thought, thought snowballed and I wrote them on paper. On paper I wrote them to the computer where I diagrammed the problem I was to solve. From the computer, I went to old programs where I looked at old work and worked it into the new work… The problem began to unravel and I began to see what needed to be done to complete the task. Nothing was going to stop me.
I then went to the computer and sat and sat and after I was tired of sitting I stood and then sat again. I spent a total of 14 hours straight on the problem. 7 hours were strait on the computer. I handed in my an assignment that was 5 pages long, 2 pages more than the class average. To put sprinkles on the ice cream I added a design sheet and a list of the tasks were needed to complete the program all in with the assignment. I was sure to get an A in a class that did not hand out A’s on a regular basis.
No hesitation because I believe in myself, and always what I say. XC, problem solving, EXPOUND Note quote: I believe in coming out and being plain and hones with that which should be made public, and in keeping yourselves that which should be kept. If you have your weaknesses, keep them hid from your brethren as much as you can. You never hear me ask the people to tell their follies…
Computers are the future whether we like it or not. Some people dislike computers, because of the complications it takes to understand the basics. Computers are not exactly the easiest tools to work with, but they are the most rewarding, and they are the future. Computer will run all future cars. You will be able to talk to a car and it will take you to your destination. Telephones are technically ...
