I Am a Quizzical Quest Seeker with a Mind of My Own

Enough Said


I have never found the human language to be adequate enough in its descriptive abilities. From the texture of applesauce (its not necessarily furry, but neither is it gritty…) to the true color of the night sky (which is purluack, by the way –purple, blue and black with a pearl sheen), it is to my dismay that one can rarely put into words the all encompassing presence of an object. It is in this sense that I have difficulty describing who I am. Granted, I can label myself in certain ways –Bipolar, ADD, musically gifted, quizzical, curious, a wordsmith –but adjectives such as these can only scratch the surface of a person. Much like James Joyce or William Shakespeare, I find a sincere fascination with words; a true curiosity at the expression that they invoke, and the feelings they awaken.

(From a college application)
