A quick game

Tirado has an easy game for bloggers to follow.

  1. Grab the nearest book.
  2. Open it to page 56.
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
  5. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST

“One took issue with Columbus’ original use of the term ‘Indian’ and saw ‘West Indian’ as continuing to embody colonialist views of the region.”

Mary C. Waters, Black Identities: West Indian Immigrant Dreams and American Realities, Cambridge, Massachusetts: Harvard University Press, 2004.

Now go and do the same for yourselves, and please try to post an image of the books’s cover for embellishment.

  4. The middle or second born child or children often have the sense of not belonging. They fight to receive attention from parents and others because they feel many times they are being ignored or dubbed off as being the same as another sibling. Being in the middle a child can feel insecure. The middle child often lacks drive and looks for direction from the first born child. Sometimes a middle child feels out of place because they are not over achievers and like to go with the flow of things.

    Being a middle child would mean they are loners. Not liking to take the limelight for anything, they are not over achievers and just simply work enough work to get by, and typically that goes with school as well as a career. They often start several projects but rarely keep focused long enough to finish a project. The best career move for a middle child would be along the lines of using their creative. Going into a writing or journalism career, and into a career that they could freely express themselves would be good.
