    An experience I had as a child that affected my self-esteem would be maturing and growing faster than the "other" kids.

    Thinking as a Hobby In his essay "Thinking as a Hobby," William Golding classifies thinkers into three categories. Analyzing everyone he meets is a very interesting hobby for Golding. When classifying these people, he puts them into "grades" according to their thinking style. Grade-three thinkers are very common, and Grade-two thinkers are less plentiful, but not as rare as Grade-one thinkers, who are most extraordinary. In society, Golding's classification system is useful when analyzing people...

It's important for couples to figure out budget priorities before they are married, and this is difficult to do unless a person has been sharing expenses with his or her partner. If couples don't have t...
