Five Minute Friday: “First”


On Fridays I will be participating in Five Minute Friday.  This is where you are given a word for that day and then are supposed to free-write on that topic for five minutes (no editing afterwards, etc).  So make sure to come back and check it out on Fridays from now on!

So here goes:

I wouldn’t say I’m a “First” kind of girl.  I mean, I don’t have to be the first one to have the latest technology or the first one to try out the latest fad or the first one to wear the newest fashion.  I would say I am more of a latecomer to all that.

I’d rather be somewhere in the middle and let someone else try and work all the kinks out before I wade into any of those areas.  But are there any areas that I DO like to be first in?  Hmm let’s see.  I do like to be on time or the first one to an event perhaps?  My motto is that if I’m not five minutes early, I’m late!

But other than that I really think I’m more an “In the Middle” kind of girl.  I don’t like all the attention and energy it takes out of you to have to be first at everything all the time.  So take it for what it is, that’s me!

    Visiting back from Five Minute Friday. I, too, am one of those people who do not need to be first to everything. I like to let other people figure out the problems and glitches and then enter when things are smoother. 🙂 Thanks for sharing. I look forward to seeing you at more FMFs!
