Okay, gonna BS these stupid things if I have to. Chances are I won't get in anyway, so I guess it doesn't matter. I think I'm just going to get all the initial sarcasm out here...
Topic B - Personal Essay 2
Describe and evaluate one experience that significantly influenced your academic interests. The experience might be a high school course, a job, a relationship, or an extracurricular activity. Be sure to explain how this experience led to your setting the goals you now have for yourself, and why you think the academic program for which you are applying will help you to reach those goals.
... academic interests? I have no academic interests. Oh well, I can always make some up. Let's see here...
High school course that taught me something relevant to my future... nope, I don't think my school offers those.
Job? It taught me that I am not a real artist, but I can pretend to be one for long enough to help people pick out gesso. It also taught me that I am a human doormat (according to one manager, who thought I was far too nice to the other cashiers, letting them leave first, stay away from their registers, etc.).
Relationship? Don't make me laugh. Whatever weird relationships (be they romantic or otherwise) I've had have taught me that humanity usually isn't something worth having faith in.
Extracurricular activities... Hmmm.... Band... er... NO... it taught me that I don't really get along well in the whole "social" thing... Art... uh... I remember my dad saying that after all, I wasn't good enough to make it as a commercial artist (if I hadn't been thinking the exact same thing, that might have hurt my feelings. As it was, it just became further proof that I should not do art)... The Internet... hmmm... dorky and stupid though it sounds, that may actually be the only thing I can write about. Maybe something about how I saw webpages that looked really nice and thought "I want to do that"... and much as I did with writing and drawing, I proceeded to do so. I can say something about wanting to learn how computers work. (actually, most of the time, I'm afraid of my computer because it keeps saying it's going to destroy me... 0.0;; but they don't need to know that...)
