I'm The Great One
Wednesday, January 14, 2015
One can learn a lot about themselves by taking a peak into their journal from twenty years ago. For instance it totally makes sense to me now why I have a problem with authority and why my goals/expectations for life are completely unrealistic.
Back in 1996 our writing prompt for the day was to write about "The Great One." And who did I choose? Well myself of course.
Part 1: I Don't Want To Brag.
Birth order is such an interesting topic to me. I really won the lottery being the youngest. Sure my brother and sister often ganged up on me and were very very cruel to me, like the infamous birthday trip from hell in Disney World, but for the most part I had it good. By the time the third child rolls around parents are just so hungover from the first two they're willing to do whatever to make you happy. It's quite wonderful actually.
However enabling might be a bit of a problem down the road. For example my mom still pays for my movie tickets when she comes to Chicago and my sister still has to pay for her own... But my sister has a lot more money than me.
Part II- A Feminist I Was Not.
Lesson to be learned here: if there's something you can't handle just call a man in to take care of the job! Men can do anything, women not so much.
However it must be noted that I was quite good at writing backward! Oh the talent.
