I don't usually have a problem figuring out what I want to blog about - I simply write the first thing that comes to mind when the page opens. I update my facebook status 8 times a day, and rarely have to put more than 20 seconds of thought into what to say. However, when it comes to my personal statement for law school applications, I can't, for the life of me, figure out where to begin. My virtual trash can is brim-lined with crumpled up pages of Word document garbage. I can blog about embarrassing moments and Natalie failures with ease. But when it comes to writing a few pages on why law schools should chose me in contrast to the 924 Asian-American over achievers, I can't get through the first paragraph. Making yourself appear capable via rhetoric is hard stuff, I say.
I think I just need to move to Africa, save some babies, be taken hostage in a civil conflict, lose a limb, and refuge back to America to tell the tale. Because I am feeling 0% diverse and 223% lame as of now.
