First child


MOM! MOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMM! HE’S DOING IT AGAIN! He keeps putting his finger in my face! Just because he’s a few years younger than me does NOT mean he gets to mess with me GROUNDED!? ME… GROUNDED, for what I didn’t even do anything he was the one who was messing with me. TATTLING? GROUNDED FOR A WEEK? ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? He is being annoying, and you said that I’m not allowed to hit him so what am I supposed to do? NOW IT’S TWO WEEKS? IS THIS A JOKE! Uuuhhhhhh fine, I’m going to my room. OK ARE YOU SERIOUS? You know what ravash? Fine. But if you’re going to be in here you are going to be SILENT. …ok I’m sorry I don’t mean to be bossy can you just put headphones on, I don’t want to hear that, and I have been bound to our room for the nex-.

Ok I am aware we share a room but that is exactly it. We share the room and I know that you were here first which usually means that you have to put headphones on, but he got me grounded again which means I have to stay here. Now listen you may be wondering what this is about. If you could not tell by now, I am a First child, I have to deal with this every day.

Mom listens to them and forgets that I exist, if I have a problem, I’d better learn to deal with it because there is no way I am going to win an argument. The youngest child gets whatever he wants, but if I ask for something then I am rude and greedy. If the youngest child wants to stay home even though there is a test that day and they have horrible grades then sure go ahead no prob. (BUT If I who have decent grades and no test that day then I’m grounded for the next week.) Maybe the oldest child is the funny, nice guy, the whole family loves but youngest child is the perfect favorite who is the embodiment of all the greatest qualities of our parents. Oh and wait hold on where’s the first child?….oh you lost them …again. Oh, ok well are you going to go look for them? Yeah, I didn’t think so.

Arash has been writing stories ever since he could hold a pencil! What started out as an intrinsic love for storytelling has turned into his lifelong passion. There’s nothing he likes better than writing (and reading) stories that is humorous in English and Persian languages, with a touch of Suspense and a poignant streak of truth running through them. Arash is also a YouTuber, Persian singer/songwriter, blogger, traveler, filmmaker, big dreamer, and professional kabob eater. When he’s not writing or dreaming up new stories, you can find him in an adventure road-tripping to national parks! If you want to see Arash in his element (ranting about stories) check out his YouTube channel.
