Remember, if I seem awesome on here, the only thing that's evidence of is that I'm good at making online dating profiles.
I don't really like describing myself in sales pitch format, which is what these essays invariably are. In reality, I'm a jumble of contradictions, like most people. The most germane to this topic is that I have a pretty good self esteem while still being plenty self conscious about my failings, both real and imagined.
But here's the sales pitch:
I'm pretty funny when my jokes land.
I'm smart enough to know that I know some things and don't know others.
I'm pretty charming when I'm not over thinking it.
I'm a pretty good conversationalist when it comes to something worth having a conversation about.
I'm pretty good at the things I've spent time getting good at, though I still want to be better at them and everything else in the world.
I always look up when an airplane flies overhead.
Yeah, not really.
Hopefully, the next thing is whatever insightful thing I just said.
A pen and paper.
The Air and Space Museum.
And no, don't consider that a challenge. You won't be the first to try and it still won't work.
