  • Mood:

Ick. (or "public brainstorming")

Cornell's essay choices: ("We're interested in which topic you choose, how you develop your idea, and how well you express yourself")
• Choose and discuss a quotation or personal motto that reflects your values and beliefs and tells us something about the kind of person you are.
Personal motto or quotation? ugh. umm... lemme see.. I don't have personal mottos... well, not 'cept "Live life to it's fullest" which I don't think I've really been doing anymore. ::sigh:: defined "live", "life" and "fullest". It would certainly show what kind of person I am, although. But I don't know how to approach it.

• "I would found an institution where any person can find instruction in any study." (Ezra Cornell, 1865) ...founding statement, blah blah, blah, give an event or situation you have experienced that was influenced by the input of people from other backgrounds and/or perspectives., I suppose I could do something about Taiwan. And the chinese culture. Ooooh, or maybe about the american culture which I still don't understand. Hmm, that could work? Dunno, requires thinking, which I'll do later.

• Ask, and then answer, an important question you would have liked us to ask.
I like this one the best, although I can't think of a good question. The only possibly slightly interesting one is, "If you could ask God one question, what would it be?" but I think it might be too religious. Otherwise, there's always, "Why do you want to come to Cornell?" or "Who are you?".

And what's kinda irritating is that I really don't have that many, well, attributes, that I feel I can write about. And there's the stuff I usually post here seems too normal... and too irrelevant to college. After all, I can't say, hey, see, this is me, I've gotten such and such on these online quizzes... I'm morally deficient, very cuddle-able, psychic, loving gentle closeness, idealistic, and part of the 53rd nuzzling division.
Of course, there's a few good posts, most on my non-daily journals, at various places that might have stuff I can take from... deep stuff, that's revealing, but possibly difficult to incorporate. And definitely not enough of it.

I'm thinking too hard, maybe I'll go shower, watch a bit of anime, then head for bed.
