PostSubject: About your leader...ME!   Mon Jan 26, 2009 3:03 pm

Taken from my college admission essay. oooo

Not Self-Absorbed, Just Self-Interested

I like myself. Let’s get that down on the table. I’m not conceited, but with all the self-esteem issues and pressure to be popular or pretty these days, I am comfortable knowing that I just don’t give a damn about the newest celebrity styles or the hottest clothes. I admit I tend to go to clothing stores and become indulged in the cool t-shirts and jeans, but I’m not an obsessive beast who has to have the latest line. I’m also not like most young men today. I feel like somehow I’m actually a gentleman. Maybe it’s the way my parents raised me. But really, who knows?

What I also like about myself is how I am so simple yet so complicated. Everyone has his or her complexities and differences that make them who they are. I like to think of myself as a Picasso painting; an inspiration, a one of a kind work of art that only those who know me get me, while everyone else who would never take the time to understand me misses out on the real beauty of my portrait. This portrait which contains all my life’s history and future, and with my fans’ eyes upon it, I try my best to impress them.

I have a couple qualities I dislike though. For example, I hate how Baskin Robins offers 31 flavors, yet I only like 3 of them. I know I’m missing out, but I just can’t seem to bring myself to try the other flavors. People have told me they are tasty, but I tend to not listen and follow my own instincts, which is what makes me, me. The other thing that bugs me is my inability to follow my own advice. I like to help people, don’t get me wrong. But for some reason my advice works for them, yet I never apply it to myself. I know I should, because it’s good advice, but I like to be independent, even from my own ways. I helped my friend Jared ask out a girl he has liked forever. He ends up going on a date with her, and then another, and another. But for me, I haven’t gone on a date in a while because I just can’t bring myself to listen to me. Sometimes I just wish I wasn’t so stubborn.

I claim to be unique, but many people do, and if many people are “unique” then being unique isn’t really being unique if it’s so common. Also, I dislike the fact that we are living in a time where there is not a single day in which I don’t overhear some girl talk similarly to “oh my god, like, like” or a guy saying “she’s hot bro” or “yeah boy!”. In all seriousness, where did the intelligence of conversation and etiquette go from the time of our parents to our generation? I’m glad I have not picked up such a shameful habit. Of course, I always feel left out from all this nonsensical excitement.

In any case, I’m still here, and I still have to live my life how I want. I laugh at dismay, though I like to help. I cringe at relationships, though I like to love. I fear the future, though I want one. I hardly get to go outside, though I appreciate natural beauty. I squint at the sun, though I like the light and happiness. Things that reveal me aren’t always what people would like to know. All in all, I think I still barely know myself since every day is different. I guess what I can hope for is a good future, a stable job, and a mundane daily routine that eventually will make me want to shake things up a little and enjoy the one life I have here.
