We have this assignment in school where you have to write a short text to introduce your self-biography. I thought it would be fun to write but so far I've written nothing. How am I supposed to write a self-biography when I haven't lived at all? Well of course I have lived (otherwise I probably wouldn't be able to write this) but I don't want to write about it and I don't want other to judge my life and the choices that i've made. I know it's not a big deal and that I just should write whatever but I want to write something that matters. It's just another assignment and I don't really know why I'm making such a big deal of it. Anyway I'm going to stop whining now, I just had to say something somewhere.

I really appreciate the comment and it was very helpful to me. I just finished the assignment and I'm quite satisfied with the result. It's not perfect but it will do. By the way, you are a really good writer! Thanks again for the comment! :)

I think that this question, "tell me a little about yourself" is an idea that has haunted high school students, job candidates, and heads of state alike. Such a simple question with SOOOOOO many difficult points. Many people try to make this a topic of anxiety because, as human beings, we naturally worry about what other will think about us and what we will think about ourselves. The best part of this and the part that will reveal itself to you once you have dredged yourself through this moor of a question is that everyone struggles with this and usually the kids that have to "coolest", most involved bio are usually just really good at creative writing. It is my firm belief that unless you are out everyday single-handedly saving villages or country-hoping, you are going to have a pretty tame bio and that is awesome. You are not a 45 year old with kids and a career and are paying taxes so you don't know who you are quite yet. Yes, use this as a chance to share who you feel like you are and what you have done but also what you love, what makes you happy, who matters in your life, and what you want your future to hold and don't be shy about it. The whole idea that putting everything that makes you, you, in only a few paragraphs is crazy but since it is an assignment and the word required most likely comes into play, have fun with it. You never know what you will learn about yourself.
