Write an essay.
Tell us about who you are,
But you only have one page to do so.
You know when you go to a new class,
and the teacher makes you sit with people you don’t know…
Then the teacher asks you to share your name and an interesting fact about yourself.
So you sit… and think, for just one thing about yourself
So you mumble about how you like P.E. class, and you hate waking up early?
I am typing a one page essay about myself,
to individuals I have never met in my life.
Who am I? Who are you?
I should be asking them to write me a page!
I’m a senior about to graduate without an idea of who I am yet,
and they want me to tell them, in depth, about who I am.
I guess I can give it a shot.
I was born and raised in Oregon.
I am a swimmer and a singer.
I love to draw, read, and write.
My life is pretty boring.
I am on the edge of finishing my last year of high school.
What am I doing? What are we doing?
Some of us spend at least ¼ of our life going to school,
Only to maybe get the career we hoped for since high school.
We work for the rest of our life?
I want to live the life I want,
without having to pay so much for school, or travel.
Our world revolves around money,
food, clothes, school, shelter, etc.
And I sit, and I write you a letter about why I am willing to pay you to go to
Why I am willing to throw my life savings at you in hopes of getting the life I dream about.
Why I am willing to be in debt for years after college because my job only pays me minimum wage.
Why don’t you write me one page about why I should go to your school?
