Ahh the joy of writing begins. I’m not conventional and nor will this format be either. Most people write about how active of a life they lead and how busy they are. Their interests are sprinkled within the text and their entire collection of words usually convey a happy and adventurous theme.
I have more to say about myself then what I like to do for fun. First and foremost I’m an intellectual and a thinker. Preferably I’d like to meet someone similar; someone who has noticed that almost all bios read the same and offers nothing about who this person truly is.
I’ve had this dilemma many times. Ladies, I’m sure that you have been on the receiving end of a scripted email. Perhaps the fellow is truly interested but one of your prerequisites for a match is humor and his email struggled to even spark a smirk. I have been there. Let’s be honest for a second. Writing an intriguing email to a stranger in hopes that they feel something other than boredom is rather difficult.
Run on sentence to follow. I’m just another twenty something male with ideas for grandeur, a constant itch to use big words, and an ever evolving sense of how I want to live my life. My perspective is that my life has just begun. For my entire existence I have be predisposed to the philosophy that good grades, extracurricular activities and hard work will lead to success. The conventional equation that so many of us buy into is that a College Degree = Good Job = Happiness. Now that I have completed college and have a job I’m finally at a point in my life where there is no road map or next logical move. This is very exciting and terrifying all at once. How do you achieve or maintain happiness?
I’m sure I’m not the only who feels this way. In the meantime I smile because I know that life is short. I play music because it brings back memories and creates new ones at the same time. I read, not because I learn new things but because I look cool holding a book. Being outdoors is cool too but I rebel against the world sometimes and stay in for the day. Usually I am happiest when I’m doing something active but I have had to learn how to be happy not being able to do the things I love. Three surgeries, 2 ACL’s and a repaired shoulder have ingrained that particular trait in me.
I presume you have made it this far in my bio for one of three reasons 1.) You read everyone’s bios fully and this one is no different 2.) You found this a nice retreat from the generic bios that only list off peoples favorite activities to showcase their love for being active and going to the beach or 3.) You read this introduction before you saw my photo and once you noticed I’m not six feet tall you proceeded to the next bio.
I could write on for another few paragraphs but I’m sure that it would accomplish nothing. I realize I come across as jaded, and you may be right, but if you don’t like the outcomes then change your process. In reality, I’m just another 20 something guy with typical interests and a good heart.
