Choir Geek, Honor Roll Nerd, Lit Geek (although I'm not as well read as I should be)
Right now, I'm coming at you from Stanford University. I'm technically still in High School, but I got accepted into this Summer Semester. It's pretty friggin awesome being in college, definitely. I'm a pretty chill person and pretty open to new people and new expiriences, so life usually goes fairly smooth. My greatest ambitions are to go to a really good college (Rice University, at least. I'm going to be suicidally depressed if I only get into UT...not that it's a terrible school...) and to, hopefully, be an accomplished writer one day. But that all hinges on whether my writing improves (it's definitely sucky right now) and whether I actually keep this interest. So far so good.
My best feature is that I really don't make enemies easily. I mean, there are people that I think are kind of annoying, but I usually won't go out of my way to avoid them or make their lives miserable or anything. On the other hand, I think my worst feature is my narcissism. It's not that I think I'm God's gift to the earth or that I think that I'm particularly attractive (I usually won't bother putting on make-up or messing with my hair very much, for instance), but I'm paranoid that I won't make an impression on people or that I'll make a bad impression on people. Yes, I am one of those people who pretty much have to be accepted by everyone. I haven't really met anyone who openly hates me yet, but it'll be interesting to see what happens.
So since "About Me" sections usually suck and make me rant way too much, I'm going to end it here. Cheers!
