Younger Siblings

Screaming, crying, constantly being in quarrel between siblings is well known in all families with a couple of kids in it. Arguing about what TV show you will watch in the evening, who can use the bathroom first in the morning, who can have the last piece of chocolate are contentious issues to start fighting.

I have two younger siblings and living together with them is sometimes really annoying. Everybody who has younger sisters and brothers knows what I’m talking about. Sometimes you could send them to the moon, you think you really hate them more then anything else.

Furthermore it drives me up the walls when my sister wants to do exactly what I do and she wants to have the same clothes I wear. Sometimes you are sitting on the couch in the living room and you just want to relax and your brother starts teasing you just because of his being bored.

They can be really nasty and ruffle your feathers but be honest you would never be able to hate them you adore them instead.

The point is that you think you really can’t stand them and you wish you would be the only kid in the family but deep in your heart you love them, you adore them you just would never admit that. It took me a long time to recognize that. I actually became aware of it when I went away from home. At the moment I’m not living together with them. The telephone is the only contact to my siblings and when talking to them I always ask them how they are doing at school if they need any help or anything else. I was surprised about my caring so much for those little devils. They always made me go up the walls and I thought with keeping distance to them my life would be much better. I changed my mind I’m missing them and I recognized that I would die for them.

When I’m going back after my exchange year I know that we soon will start arguing again and that they will ruffle my feathers but there will a difference. I’m nearly an adult and I can think twice if I decide to be mean to them or not. Sometimes you can show them that you love them with small gestures. You could probably give them a ride to their soccer or volleyball game and cheer for them.

It is totally normal that you quarrel a lot with your siblings and that you can’t stand them sometime. But be honest, you would always be there to help them if they need your assistance. Furthermore you are probably caring for them more, than for yourself, have you ever thought about that?

Maria Theresia

She was a women living in Austria in the 18th century and she was quite important for my country. She was the Archduchess of Austria and the Queen of Hungary and Bohemia. She was the daughter of Charles 7 and after he died Maria Theresia ascends the thrown.

She married Francis 1, Duke of Lorraine and they had incredible, but true 16 children together. There were 11 daughters and 5 sons. She was one of really few women who married out of love.

After her father died Maria set on the thrown without any clue how to govern that country. Furthermore Austria had some political problems. The Army was really weak and the money in the treasure vault became less and less due to two wars.

She made managed it and made some chances for Austria. She increased the army, made it twice as big as it was before. Besides she chanced the taxes to guarantee the states having enough money.

She also introduced the “Höchstgericht” the highest dish. I took care that all the laws in the country were obtained.

The most popular step she took was the introduction of the compulsory school attendance. Before Maria Theresa nobody had to go school obligatorily. Till today it is taught in the school she founded the so called Theresianum. She also founded a military academy and made the medicine university in Wien better.

All the reforms strengthened the economy.

Then her husband Francis died and she governed the country with her oldest son Joseph. She gave him some work and some responsibility but she still rolled the reins.

She governed the country from 1740 until she died in 1780.
