— Carl Sagan (via kkkchavez)
It’s tough being the oldest child in your family. It bothers me when people jump to the false conclusion that your younger siblings are so vivacious and spirited while you are just colorless and wearisome. You see, what you are failing to understand is that we had to grow up a little faster than the others. We were robbed of our freedom to be crazy and stupid. We were expected to not step out of bounds. We were blamed for things we did not do. God forbid we succeed and our siblings do not… we wouldn’t want to be labeled as selfish now.
But there must be a reason why God selected us to be first. So… I’m going to jump to the conclusion that we’re the shit.
