One of the oddest progression of life is probably when someone is growing up. All those memories of failures which you hope could be thrown into the garbage can like a piece of paper and all those memories of successes which you hope could be saved on a c omputer like a piece of hard disk turns into endless thoughts similar to that of a math problem which the equation contains the variable infinity. I am more of a thinker than accomplisher. Due to this problem it usually takes me longer to do my homework t han the other kids. I remember in elementary school my fifth grade teacher used to say, "If you think while you write everything would be easier for you." Such as for this personal statement that I am doing right this moment can transform into a paper of endless ideas and opinions which consists the final point of expression of oneself. For example, in this world the expression of a human being is critical to the survival of one^Òs success. The way you addresses a older person; the way you addresses your friend; the way you write on a important essay such as this one; the way you work with someone; it all comes down to how the other person sees you as a human being. As for this fact, people usually need to hide their inner feelings somewhere inside the ph syce which is ironic in the ways of expressing by unexpressing. During sometime of the17 years that I have lived so far and maybe just a split second during those 6,205 days I would start wondering how did Christopher Columbus communicate with the Indians when he reached the New World where the form of expression could be crucial to their lives. What if the Indians didn^Òt like them? Columbus and his men would either starve to death; freeze to death; or be murdered. Moreover, isn^Òt it ironic that the peo ple whom first reached the New World and helped Columbus and his men to survive are now living in concentration camps? Thinking too much sometimes can be a good thing other than getting in the way of my work. Thinking is a tool for reasoning which logic c omes into play in the game of life. It can be explained as simple as in school when some childish classmate squirts water onto your favorite T-shirt. At that moment you can choose a few options to resolve this problem and each with its own consequences. O ption 1: you can go up to your classmate and try to start something, probably causing eachother severe injuries, and the next thing you know you would be sitting in the principle's office facing suspension or expulsion. Option 2: you can sit in your place be calm and not bother with your immature classmate. If you ask me I would probably choose option 2. I think anyone would choose option 2 if they thought about it, but sometimes anger overrides your chain of thoughts which could cause wrong decisions to be made. Thinking is useful in solving problems as it is in entertainment. Usually great entertainers are excellent thinkers. Telling a joke isn't as effortless as it looks like. It takes a rapid thinker to tell a perfect joke. The time, place, and people are three subjects which a good sense of humor is to be developed from. Say the equitable kind of joke to the equitable kind of people. Catch the suitable time to say it at the suitable place which only allows you less than half a second to think and say it. I love to think about everything but because of this I am a greater man than I used to be. Similar to what Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "Beware when the great God lets loose a thinker on this planet. Then all things are at risk. It is as when a conflagr ation has broken out in a great city, and no man knows what is safe, or where it will end."
