Wouldn’t it be nice if writing could be done through osmosis? Imagine the simplicity of paper writing! Fall asleep on the computer to be greeted by a fresh, beautifully written, grammatically correct 18-page essay on the symbolism of the marlin in Hemmingway’s The Old Man and the Sea. Oh, what a beautiful thought. If that were the case, I wouldn’t have spent the past 29 minutes staring blankly at the computer screen trying to figure out what to say in my “about me” page—the words would just be there. It’s not that I don’t have things to say—quite the opposite, in fact—it’s what, exactly, to say and how to say it that has me stumped. Lets see…
I am a college student. I’m from a small New England town. I go to school in a big New England city. The last foreign country I was in was Jordan. I speak French. I wish I knew how to play the violin. I love flip-flops and sunshine and beaches. When I grow up, I want to make a lot of money doing something I love and then become a philanthropist. My favorite song is Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls. I know all the words to the movie Bend it Like Beckham. I am an athlete. I played soccer in high school. I discovered the sport of cycling 3 years ago, started competing in races and LOVE it. My bike is a red and white Specialized Amira. I love watching the NFL and professional soccer. Morning workouts make me happy. My two favorite flavors of ice cream (because its impossible to narrow it down to just one) are coffee and cake batter (not together). I am addicted to coffee. I get Starbucks cards for my birthday. I bake in my free time. And I’m actually pretty good at it. I am a very healthy eater. But I love sweets…especially cookies.
In short: I bake. I bike. I bite (in a completely non-cannibalistic way).
