I finished first a few times. When I was ten, I received first place at a gymnastics competition. Unfortunately, teddy-bears were awarded that day instead of medals. In college I received the top grade in an astronomy class. I'm not a competitive person, but I admit that finishing first feels good. It felt good because at the time, gymnastics and astronomy were important to me.

Last week, David was first in line to buy the new iPhone 5. He is a college student, but cares so much about technology that he arrived to the store the night before. He did well in his beat.
