Let’s go exploring Imagine you’re floating in the air, it’s the year 2005, and as you look down you spot an airplane. Inside the airplane you see a six-year-old boy passionately enjoying another episode of Pokemon armed with his special edition Pikachu trousers.

Letter to roommate: Hey roomie, To prepare for when we meet I’d like to warn/notify you beforehand, as any half-reasonable roommate would, that most people consider me to be a little bit on the eccentric side.

This was my second common app answering question number 4 I used this essay for the schools I applied early to: MIT, CalTech and Georgia Tech. My grandma's eyes lit up as she was preparing to tell me a story, which she was prompted to tell after hearing that I had been unmotivated at school. She started reciting the story and I listened carefully. “One day your grandpa was walking through the cemetery, surrounded by Tuzkoy’s worn-down asbestos-built houses, to...
