Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
You're probably bored with the normal way people write these
self-summaries. And what are people except a compilation of
memories? Here are some of mine:
When I was 6, I wanted to play with my cousins who lived next door,
but they had colored with crayon all over the walls. I spent three
hours cleaning their mess so I could play with them sooner!
When I was in 4th grade, we were working on a project and supposed
to put the final result in a basket. But the teacher got angry with
everyone standing up, so she said that the next person to stand up
would get detention. I turned to my friend and asked him to put my
project in the basket for me, since he was closer; the teacher
heard, and gave me detention for being a "smart-ass".
When I was in 10th grade, I broke my ankle playing some
soccer/football/handball combination game. I kept playing for the
rest of the period because I was the best person on my team, and
didn't want to lose.
When I was a sophomore in college, I went on a hike in upstate NY
with some friends. We got lost, and ended up walking 23 miles that
day. Fortunately, we brought lunch.
Well, that's enough for now. Maybe more to come in the future!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm going to develop the most awesome software ever. And while I
figure out what that is, I'm developing some less-awesome software
for a living.
I also intend to travel a lot. I've been to Hawaii, Alaska, Peru,
Ecuador, Galapagos Islands, Israel, Poland, France, Spain, Poland,
Austria, Italy, London, and Ireland. I need to make it to the Far
East and "down under" sometime soon.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Attention to detail
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm too muscular to be a nerd, but too scrawny to be a jock. And
the glasses generally push me towards the nerd side.

Finally finished Game of Thrones!
In the past, I've liked almost anything science-fiction or fantasy.
I also like the occasional philosophical book, but it is very tough
to find good ones. I am ready to explore new genres, but I'm
generally plot-focused and so long, flowery descriptions irk me.
Harry Potter, Perloo, Da Vinci Code, Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn
trilogy, His Dark Materials - anything along those lines.
Most recently saw the Wolf of Wall Street and American Hustle.
Sometimes I worry that I'm missing out on the less popular
Dexter, Nikita, HIMYM, Family Guy, House
Quite non-specific here. The only thing I know for sure that I
don't like is rap or (most) country. I will listen to just about
Chocolate, steak, pecan-crusted chicken salad!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Numbers. Otherwise I wouldn't be able to number this list.
2) Puns. I love finding puns that people didn't intend, and
sometimes making one or two myself.
3) Competition. Obviously there can be too much, but trying to
outrun or keep up with other runners is half of my
4) Dessert. I guess I could do without this one, but really, who
would want to?
5) Humans. Though the first few weeks might be nice, I'd soon start
to doubt my sanity.
6) You. Because I can be corny and that's the corniest answer.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
... what makes creme brulee and blueberry cobbler taste so
... why do parents torture their children with terrible
... should I travel to Japan, Korea, or China next?
... is there anything in the Midwest worth seeing?
... why haven't NYC subways been automated yet?
... do any sites sell shoes for the millions of people with
... why is it the convention for guys to ask girls out?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
a) Getting dinner and drinks with friends
b) Playing board games
c) At the gym
d) Traveling to far-off lands (like DC)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't hold a downward dog for my life. Seriously, please tell me
