Writer's Block: Pecking Order

Are you an oldest, youngest, middle, or only child? How do you think it has influenced your personality?


I'm an only child. I have joked about it, saying one was enough trouble that my parents decided not to have another. :) I think growing up as an only child has made me somewhat independent and able to keep myself entertained. I don't absolutely need to get together with anyone else to do many of the things I enjoy. The downside is I don't deal with people really well and instead of smoothening out interpersonal problems, I tend to shut people out. You may have already noticed that a number of times in this journal.
