I suck at writing "about me" sections. No really, I do. I always try to conjure up some interesting facts about my dull and excruciatingly normal life. Here is my latest attempt.
I'm currently pursuing a BA in Business Administration at Boston University (awesome timing in this economy, eh?) After that, I'll probably get my master's or my law degree.. depending on how much money I can squeeze out of my parents. I want to stay in school forever. I am terrified of the "real world." I even wrote a 40 page thesis on Peter Pan and wanting to stay a kid forever.
I like to draw. I like to paint. I like to play the piano. I like to play the guitar. I like to dance. I like to write. I like to run. I am, at most, mediocre at all these things.
I love to bake. When I do finally finish school and land myself a boring little job in a boring little accounting firm, I totally see myself having a "mid life" crisis (is 30 considered "mid life?"), quitting my boring little job, and opening up a quaint little cupcake shop. My cupcakes are to die for. So are my oatmeal raisin cookies (hmm.. oatmeal raisin cupcakes?? must give those a try..)
I like red cups and holiday drinks from Starbucks, the smell of cedar wood, wearing high heels (sometimes), Scrabble, the way the wind blows right before it rains, summer in the city, sudoku, pearls, the Red Sox, and James Bond. I like math and crunching numbers and when I'm bored or on a long run I make up math problems and solve them in my head. That is why I am going to be an accountant.
I hate snow. But I really like to go ice fishing with my dad. I also used to like to steal trays from the dining hall and go tray sledding in the Common with my friends. Then my school decided to be more "eco friendly" and so they went tray-less. Since when is saving the planet more important than tray sledding?
I am always listening to music. I like the kind that makes me feel like a badass. I also like the kind that makes me want to jump up and down and shake my ass (my horrible take on dancing.. I guess 15 years of proper tap, jazz, and hip-hop lessons were a waste of money..) And The Beatles. I love The Beatles. One of my life dreams is to walk up to Paul McCartney and pinch his cheeks.
I am the worst at conclusions. I used to completely leave them out of my essays, even though it always cost me 10 points. It seemed worth it to me. I'd rather have 10 points be taken off my essay than spend 10 hours agonizing over a conclusion. I like my major a lot because I never have to take another writing class again.
