What can I say about myself that would actually interest you? I’m shy when I first meet new people; I really don’t know what to say. Everyone says that they’re outgoing with the people they’re comfortable with, so what am I supposed to do? Sit you down and tell you my whole life story until I feel comfortable with you? That’d be pretty boring, not saying I have a boring life. Instead, I’d rather tell you a little bit about myself that you wouldn’t know right off the bat just by seeing me sitting in your classroom. I can’t live without my phone. Ever since I got unlimited texting in high school, it’s been a necessity for me. I bring my phone almost everywhere, and if I don’t have service, I’ll go crazy looking for it. Um, what else. I’m a creative person. I’ve done painting- acrylic and watercolor, sketching, paper carving, graffiti, collages, etc. I don’t like going to art museums though. It’s really boring. I love dogs. I have a Cocker Spaniel in Malaysia, but no dogs here though. My mom claims she’s allergic to them but yet we have a dog back at my grandparent’s house. Funny. The only dog I get to be around now is my boyfriend’s dog, Tom, a Morkie. He’s so cute and fluffy, I love him. Er, what else. I admit I’m a nerd. I study and work hard, because I really want nothing lower than a 100. Nineties are okay, eighties are a no-no. I guess I’m like this because I was brought up like this by my parents. I’ve never missed a day off from school even if I was sick. I remember this one time where I had a doctor’s appointment in kindergarten, and I think it’d be okay to let your child miss a day off. It’s only kindergarten right? Wrong. My mom wouldn’t let me stay home and watch Pokemon. She made me go to school, take attendance, go to the doctor’s, and then return back to school for the remaining few hours. Pretty annoying, but I got use to it over the years. Instead of bedtime stories when I was little, I use to get lectures from my dad before I went to sleep. “Work hard, play later.” What he says is true, but sometimes a girl needs a break. Hopefully Baruch will be a break for me. All the free time I have, I’ll spend with my friends and boyfriend. I’ll finally get to go shopping anytime I want, and maybe catch a movie. Yay me!
