Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
While I would have to say that college is a great experience, I
have come a long way since my years as an English major at Iowa
State. Now that my time reading and writing for exams is over, I
work for the University in a specialized administrative office.
While I really enjoy my job, I am also looking forward to admission
into the part time MBA program at Iowa State in the fall of
It has taken me a long time to realize that what I want out of life
is more abstract than to have "this" specific career or own "that"
special thing. I would like to be able to say, no matter what path
my life takes, I was successful. Whether that means money or
happiness or hopefully both…
I have a number of fairly nerdy hobbies; I am equally as
comfortable with numbers as I am with words. I like fantasy sports,
trivia contests, video games, board games and role-playing games.
In addition, I have started a regular running/walking routine where
I enjoy listening to podcasts. I play the cello, and I am seriously
considering going back to vegetarianism. If I can get a few people
together, I also like basketball and throwing a round of
If my English department advisor had really asked me about my goals
when I started my journey here in Ames, I may have graduated from
college more quickly, but I would have missed a lot along the way.
So I have to say, my path so far has been a good one.
I am gregarious, a consensus builder, and a storyteller.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working. Spending time with friends. Moving myself forward.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My glasses? My tendency to wear polo shirts? No one really says.
Actually, the last person to tell me what they first noticed about
me noticed that I put my foot in my mouth trying to sound "cool" as
I was talking to her. So I've got that going for me, which is nice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorites are so... difficult. I enjoy so many things, some
embarrassing, some obvious, some unexpected, and to make a list of
those things would be an insult to anything I might forget.
I love fantastic romance, epic adventure, stories that make one
smile, and stories that can bring a tear to your eye.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
There are a lot of things I wouldn't like to do without, but the
only things I don't think I could live without are my imagination
and hope. Cheesy? Maybe, but that doesn't make it untrue.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I am doing with my life. And girls.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends. Doing... something. It's probably nerdy, though.
That I can assure you.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

name the reference), is on track to go 12-0 in the latest season of
