Seriously though, I am unlike any person you have ever met. I'm a walking contradiction. I'm warm and cold, hard and soft, loyal and independent, studious and wild, responsible and spontaneous. In high school, I was defiant and incorrigible, grew long hair, rebelled against authority, but still graduated valedictorian. I walked away from scholarships in order to drop out of society, live without money and travel the country, sleeping in national forests and on beaches. When I went back to college, it was because I wanted to, not because society expected it of me. I have a lot of great stories, but won't tell some of them until I know you very, very well. I have no regrets and would not change a thing.
The "unexamined life is not worth living" and my past adventures form significant parts of my self-identity, contributing to the comfort I now have with who I am and where I'm going. However, there is still a fire burning inside me, even if I am now much better at keeping it at bay. I let it out when I want, but it does not consume me.
I am honest, intelligent, and adventurous.
