Write three interesting facts about yourself.
I hate this. I really do. I hate whenever you were in grade school and you had to stand up, introduce yourself, and say something interesting. In a class I’m in now we have to list three interesting things about ourselves. I guess so we can have something interesting to talk about when networking with others. Maybe I just don’t think I’m that interesting, or I just don’t see the things I do as interesting, they just seem like regular things to me. And the things I find interesting about myself aren’t necessarily bam-wow things.

My love of puns makes a lot of people roll their eyes, but it’s dynamite to me. I guess it’s good to look and reflect on what makes you more than just a sheep blob of a person, but it just makes me feel inadequate. Like I failed at learning how to dance ballet as a kid or serves as a reminder that I’m abysmal at playing a musical instrument.
My other problem with this is that it implies that you have to do or have done certain things to be interesting. Like you aren’t interesting if you are just a person who exists and has hopes and dreams. I don’t know. I’m probably just over-thinking this.
What are three things about you?
