Summing me up in a sentence
What one single sentence defines me?
This question has been harder to answer than I expected. And I knew it would be challenging.
I hate talking about myself. I think most people do, but it has become especially apparent to me as I have worked on various projects throughout my college career, such as the “about me” section on a website I made, or even on this blog. As much as I love writing, pretty much everything I write about myself ends up sounding about as cookie-cutter and bland as can be.
With that in mind, I sat down to write the one single sentence that sums me up. A video by Daniel Pink poses the question: What is your sentence? My answer was as follows: I have no clue. And to be honest, after reflecting on this question for some time, I still don’t really know for sure.
I know that I’m interested in writing, editing and public relations, hence my major, but I like to hope that I’m not completely defined by my major. I think there is so much more to me (and to all college students) than our chosen fields of study.
Since I’ve been in college, I’ve grown a lot, and learned a lot about myself. I’m not just saying that to be cliché; I truly believe it. I also realize, though, that I still have a lot of growing up to do. And I like that. Yes Motion City Soundtrack, the future does freak me out. But if I’ve learned anything in college, it’s how much I love to learn–and many experiences in my life have shaped out to be pretty good learning opportunities so far.
So after rambling on (as I tend to do), I’ve finally settled on a sentence that I think accurately describes me at this moment. Who knows if it’ll hold true in a couple months or a couple years…but it’s all part of the experience, right?
I am a curious, young-at-heart college student with a passion for learning, truth and growth which drives me, and hopefully is translated in my words and actions.
