Mind Games, Uhhh...

Mind Games #1

Alright, here’s the deal: Boredom is a waste of time. Monotony is a waste of brain. Sometimes it’s a breeze to just slip away to somewhere else while I work, and my imagination flows freely. Most of the time, I’m just staring at the crumbs I’m vacuuming up and my mind moves as fast as a dead dog. For times like those, I have adopted a sort of game to get my mind working. It is a complacency-fighter. I know I’m not the only one who would like to think about something other than what they are required to do. So, I hereby invite you to play. Basically, I ask a question that’s designed to provoke some thought, and anyone and everyone answers it. You may answer in the comments section, not in Facebook if that’s how you found this. You can be as anonymous as you like. You can take it as seriously as you like. You can twist the question around to make your answer as weird as you like. Here is question #1.

How did your birth-order among your siblings contribute to who you are?

  1. This one leaves me out bc I have no siblings. Well actually it made be be all. 1st, 2nd middle, last, baby. I had to be all things to my parents. That made me a capable, controlling, clownish neurotic. I don’t think I speled that right. And I want my own way.

  2. I don’t think that leaves you out. I was particularly curious about single children.

    I am a second child, a much smaller second child. I mimicked my brother for the first half of my life. I spent a lot of time trying to act older than I was. But then I realized that we are very different. I began to distinguish myself with the things I was good at, instead of trying to do the things he was good at. I still wish I was more able to work on cars and such, but that kind of skill is just too slippery for my brain.

  3. It’s so quiet here… I’ll bite.

    Being the youngest of five children definitely made me mature more quickly, or at least made me feel like I was mature — maybe that was just wishful thinking on my part. 🙂 I don’t think I really fit the stereotype of the spoiled youngest child; instead, I think I just was always really concerned with impressing my older siblings. Everyone always was ahead of me in life, getting to do cooler things, go to cooler places, experience things that I’d have to wait years for… so that always made me impatient to grow up. Maybe I rushed some things because of that.

  4. Дисней и Пиксар отдыхают!
    Скоро ожидается пресс-конференция компании Д3 Медиа групп, где нам покажут
    до чего доросла российская анимация и что мы все-таки что-то можем.
    В планах, насколько я знаю, показать целых 2 анимационных полных метра. Один из них
    сделан по «Мастеру и Маргарите» Булгакова. Думаю, интересно взглянуть какого
    плана получатся фильмы, по Мастеру и Маргарите, на мой взгляд, пока не было
    хорошей визуализации.

  5. Being the only girl and my brother being older made me the perpetual kitchen maid. I can not remember a time that I didn’t have to do the dishes, it became part of my make up. Also, having an older brother that always messed with my brain made me very vulnerable to believing nonsense, tho I’m getting better now that I’m wiser than him.
