I love to blog, I love to write, but to sum it up in short and write a bio about yourself is a painful process. Especially, when you have a hard time being serious about yourself. I’ve never submitted a bio that didn’t involve a joke about coffee, stained shirts, little cars, or yoga pants.
I glanced over my About Me page and shuddered…
Help! I’m trapped in the suburban carnival! And I’ll never be able to find my way out! I’m scared of Botox, my car is too small, and I fear spending too much money on yoga pants! I always put my foot in my mouth and my mother in law is extremely passive-aggressive. It’s all of these things which are the carnival of my life. Right now, I am currently suspended upside down from my trapeze waiting for somebody to come out with the net.
I thought perhaps I would change the about me page. On the odd chance that my Mother in Law would ever discover that yes I do find her extremely passive-aggressive. In the end it would start a battle of MIL vs. DIL with Mr.MBA being diminished into a cloud of dust as two tornadoes swirled about him.
Perhaps, a domesticated clown isn’t the best way to describe myself. But most days I do feel slightly, awkward, clumsy, and give a wink at the most inappropriate of times. So in attempt to for you to learn something serious about me.
I looked up tips for writing the perfect Bio. Yes I did! The consensus of articles from the web stated five facts that you should share about yourself. So ahem!
I attended a small liberal arts school studied Political Science and Human Rights. It is there I learned the value of critical thinking, developed a love for Aristotle, and can recite The Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
I went to beauty school for six months and discovered it wasn’t for me. I made the wise decision of becoming a beauty school drop-out. And it was the greatest achievement and wisest choice of my life. I saved the world from an onslaught of blue haired ladies in their walkers on the hunt for men at discos.
3. My perspective on Life
You only get one life! Live it to the fullest!
I won a poetry contest in Grade three! The laminated book still resides in the school library. I do not remember the words of the poem but it involved a deer and a stream.
5. Travels, hobbies, and interests
My second summer of university I worked as an Aupair in the foothills of Switzerland. And if you have ever seen Outsource that is pretty much what I did l in India for a year. I also have a love of reading, cooking, eating, running, and dark pubs arguing over politics.
So as you can see I am smashing my head against the bio and have a hard time being serious. Do you have any suggestions for me?
