Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The first time I talk to someone, I tend to be a bit nervous.
Thankfully, I warm up to people quickly. I’m a carefree/laidback
person, but I can be serious when it's necessary. I’m remarkably
self- motivated; once I have decided to do something, I always
follow through. My outlook on the future is positive, and I'm happy
with my life overall; however, my positive outlook on life doesn’t
blind me to current social issues. I consider myself to be an
active member of the community; I volunteer, vote, and partake in
political discourse. I love to learn and to participate in new
experiences. I enjoy intellectually stimulating conversations, as
long as the parties involved are respectful and that there aren't
any ad hominem attacks. I’m an empathetic, nonjudgmental listener.
I have a plethora of academic interest ranging from the sciences to
the humanities. My goal in life is to become a polymath like
Leonardo da Vinci.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I ‘m currently attending a community college in order to obtain an
associate degree; also, I work at the college as a math tutor. In
the fall of 2013, I plan to transfer to a four year university and
pursue a degree in engineering. I have friends and family that I
see regularly. I have plenty of hobbies to keep me busy. For
example, I exercise regularly, and I recently started playing the

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I’m good at a lot of things. What I’m the most good at are
computers, math, science, reading, and debating. Three areas I’m
the worst in are art, music, and foreign languages; I plan to
conquer these subjects even if it takes a lifetime.

People say I have an intense look. Some even say that I scared them
before they got to personally know me. I swear I’m a nice person!
