Sounds like such an existentialist question, doesn’t it?
But often in life, we are trying to find our self-identity. We go through different challenges and phases in life, and are constantly trying to prove ourselves to others. We go through quarter-life, mid-life, and end-of-life crises trying to figure out what the heck our purpose is on this Earth anyways.
Reader, have you figured out who you are yet?
With my limited life experience, I will describe myself with some conventionalities. I am biracial: half-Filipino, half-White. I am Catholic. English is my first and only language. (I do have some basic understanding of Tagalog). I am a college student.
Now I will cast off the conventionalities. I find nerds attractive. I couldn’t tell you a believable lie if I tried. I dance in empty hardware aisles at the home improvement store. My laughter is so unique and obnoxious, you’d be able to find me in a filled room just by listening. My hair looks like a mess even after I’ve brushed it twice.
With such little information, you can hardly deduce my entire character…
