The other day someone asked me ĎIf you could describe yourself in one word or less, what would the word be?í Well honestly, I couldnít tell you. Not only can I not find one word to describe me, but even if I did, you probably wouldnít be able to get me to shut up on the subject. Iíd talk and talk and talk some more about how that one word probably doesnít describe me at all. So, in that case, the word would probably have to be talkative.
Other than that, Iím quite the extrovert. I dance randomly in public places, I sing at the top of my lungs to songs I donít know the lyrics to when Iím in the car, and Iím not afraid to tell anyone my life story. I introduce myself to people that probably wouldnít want to know me in the first place and I also try to be funny Ė especially at the wrong time. My Bad.
So, I guess you could call me outgoing. I guess.
Iíd call myself smart. I mean, Iím not stupid, but Iím not a genius either. I get Aís, I get Bís, and yeah, thatís right Ė Iíve gotten Cís. So, smart. Hmm, I like it.
Funny? Not sure. I can definitely make people laugh, but at the same time, I can make them even more annoyed because I go too far with the jokes. Or because I didnít make them laugh in the first place and tried to make up for it by being funnier. But Iím not funnier. Over the top? ĎKay, well thatís three words, but itíll do.
Lazy. I'd say that's pretty self-explanatory. Although, to be honest, I have my Ďno, you sit down, Iíll make the teaí moments. Those are the times when I get those weird Ďwhoa, did I just hear that?í looks.
When I like something, I love it. And I donít stop doing it, or trying it, or learning it until Iíve gotten it down. For instance, writing. Wow writing. I donít think thereís anything in the world I love more. Except for my people/dogs. But weíll get to them later. When I write, I donít hold back. I let it all go, exposing myself to whateverís going to come out. And I love it. Passionate? I think so.
Alright so there are these things at my house, they wonít really go away, but then again I donít really want them to. Their names are Jigsaw and Bear, or Geneva and Genoa, or La Bouje, or Lala and Lulu. Basically whatever comes out of our mouths Ė us being my family and I. Theyíre what we like to call people/dogs, because yes, biologically, they are of the canine species, but dude, meet them and youíll know thereís people inside my dogs. Anyways, so they pretty much mean the world to me. They sleep with me every night, I feed them, I - sometimes Ė pick up after them, and if they werenít here Iím pretty sure Iíd be bored a lot. Caring? Definitely.
Oh and Iím really loud.
Yeah I donít really have an explanation for that one.
Okay so weíve basically covered all of the main points - talkative, outgoing, smart, over the top, lazy, passionate, caring, and loud. Thatís not exactly one word. And none of those single words covers every little detail about my personality and who I am. So, when I think about what I would say if I was asked again how I would describe myself in one word, the answerís pretty obvious.


The following comments are for "Me"

First off I like this piece. It is interesting and it defines the mindtrain that most of us board when we are asked similar questions.
Now, as for an essay, the structure needs to be tighter, and the overuse of 'funny' inserts tends to get annoying.
As a rant though it would have scored high in my scorebook. Why? Cause it is written in thought, your thoughts fly over and reach out to me when I read this. Now that could be my fault for trying to connect to an essay but it is titled 'Me' now isn't it?
All the best, Siah

I liked it. Was easy and nice to read. If I were to add anything to it, it would be a little drama or a funny twist of some sort near the end. Keep on writing. All the best, Thea

I really liked this. It described to a "T" many of the teens I know. I was actually picturing some of them by the way your phrased your thoughts, knowing the off-the-wall way they go about their lives.

It's a teen thing. So, I am assuming you fit into this category?

Here's a comforting thought: You have all the right ingredients to becoming a very interesting and enjoyable adult. During your teen years, you wear off the rough edges that you are enjoying now. For instance, you know you are too loud, annoying and go over the top with jokes. It's not that you can't avoid it, you simply know you can get away with it, and it gives you the level of attention you crave.

This is all perfectly normal for your age.

All I can say, is, keep writing and never stop being spontaneous.

This was fun to read.

I read this and it is jsut like a personality profile. Is that what you meant it to be? You described yourself from several viewpoints which was good. I really enjoyed this essay very much. Have you written any moer of this type of essay? Keep it up!
