Because I am occasionally motivated enough to be creative, I present you with my college application essay. The only corrections I have made are for spelling; the rest is exactly as I submitted it to the admissions office. I submit the following for your amusement:
Somewhere along the line, I found that writing essays about myself was self-indulgent tripe. I believe that if you were truly interested in me as a person, you would admit me as a student to see what contributions I bring to the academic community.
However, because you asked so politely I shall endeavor to fulfill your request.
I happen to be a 25-year-old failure. (in my college career) I hope to rectify this situation by attending (and graduating) from your esteemed institution.
So, I am a musician, artist and loving husband. I hope to be a father someday. I work on computers and have a hobby of collecting old Volkswagens. I game and spend time with my family and friends. I believe that television is the downfall of modern man. I believe that modern American culture (or lack there of) is responsible to the stupefaction of contemporary Youth. And I believe that death cannot stop true love.
I am a delicate flower.
Thank you and good night.
The school accepted me, if you can believe it.
Just an additional thought - If you have added me - feel free to drop into whatever the latest entry is and introduce yourself. I rarely get around to checking the edit friends page. Thanks for stopping by...
