We all have things about us which we highlight or downplay. (A) It is common for us to look at ourselves and to judge our traits as "strengths" and "weaknesses," and then to react to each as it helps or hurts us in our daily progress. We laugh at silly things we keep doing and wonder why we do them again and again. I see a particular trait, my nervous habits, as something of a jinx which I think I inherited from my mother. Sadly, these habits have affected me in my home, school, and personal life. Although my nervous habits might seem amusing, they have also caused some very serious consequenc

One place my nervous habits have created trouble for me is at home. For example(C), I was sitting on our old swivel bar stool. As I was spinning around, I accidentally swung my arm out too far and knocked Mom's vase off the stand. That might not have been too bad, if it had been just some old vase, but it was valuable and a gift from her grandmother. I am still doing extra chores around the house to apologize to her for being so fidgety. And then there is the time I decided to drive Dad's car around the block for practice. Because of my nervous habit of twirling my hair whenever I get impatient, I was distracted when a neighbor's dog ran out in the road. By the time I swung the wheel, the car was crashed against the Gardner's oak tree. I will be doing chores around the yard for the next century to pay for the damage I caused! We will have the cleanest house and nicest yard because of my nervous habits.

Another place (D) nervousness has spelled disaster is at school. For instance, sometimes teachers react badly toward me because I have trouble sitting still for long periods. I remember getting up in Miss Stein's class to lean against the wall; she yelled at me for being rude and suggested I might show more interest in the dean's office than in her science class. I still have difficulty sitting in a desk for an entire hour, but I know that my participation grade will suffer if I cannot follow class guidelines, so I sit still and try to look very interested. Not only teachers but also (E) some students react to my nervous habits. One guy named Rob in last year's math class used to turn around and glare at me for kicking his desk. I avoid him in the halls this year, because I know he probably blames his poor math grade on me. School would definitely be better if I could leave my habits at home! (F)

Finally, the place where my nervous habits most affect me is my personal life. (G) Some of my habits are silly and personally bothersome. For example, my chronic nail biting will not kill me, but it makes me dislike my hands. It is very hard to function while sitting on your hands or hiding them in your pockets! This may seem silly but it would be nice if I could keep my hands out of my mouth. However, (H) my doctor's concern with my overall health is not so silly. Hypertension runs in my family, which causes high blood pressure. My doctor wants me to jog and do other things to work off my excess energy so that my future health does not become a serious problem. The physical harm caused by my nerves makes me realize that it is a pretty serious habit which I must address.

Obviously, all people have particular traits or habits which are a part of their everyday lives. They are so much a part of me, it is difficult to say where the habit ends and "I" begin! Without a doubt, my nervous habit has affected many areas -- home, school, and personal -- of my life. (I) Maybe I could use my habit to help others; maybe I could send this paper to the teachers in our school, so they would better understand other hyper kids who just cannot sit still but do not mean to be rude. Do you think I would become more popular with some students on campus? (J)
