Yo. I know most of you, but I guess there’s one or two of you I don’t really know, so I guess I’ll tell you guys about myself. My name’s Lawrence. I’m a freshman at Baruch College, graduation from Brooklyn Technical High School. I live in Brooklyn. I play a lot of sports; tennis, handball, volleyball, but I’m always up for learning other sports. I work out a little bit. I spend like 10-20mins on my hair every day, unless I get really lazy and decide to just leave it down for the day, looking like a mushroom. I think I’m kind of funny. I say “I think” because I don’t really know. I never really met myself. It’s not like I can just be like
“Hello, nice to meet you.”
“Wanna hear a joke?”
“What’s Beethoven’s favorite fruit?”
“Oh. (Laughs) I get it. You funny.”
“Oh. Thank you.”
So I am afraid of the dark. I remember my friend back in Junior High School said, “People are afraid of the dark because they always imagine the worst possible thing.” When I thought about it, yea its true. Just recently, I wanted a cup of milk, so I went to the fridge and took out a gallon of milk, and you know the gallons have a small cap on top? Yeah so I put it on the counter and turned around to get a cup. All of a sudden, the cap just pops out and goes up to around 3 feet in the air. I was like WTF. As I was turning back around, I was telling myself all kinds of scientific explanation to make myself not scared. “Don’t worry Lawrence, Don’t worry. The room temperature is much warmer than the temperature of the gallon, so the pressure inside the gallon increased to an extent that it can make the cap fly up 3 feet.” Yea. I didn’t work. I was scared, like crazy.
School’s alright. Nothing special. It’s almost exactly what I expected it to be except for the fact that I don’t get much homework. I’m a gigantic procrastinator. I don’t procrastinate till the last minute, I procrastinate till the last second. This monologue that I’m reading right now, I didn’t do it last night, I did it this morning. I thought this habit would go away after I got into college, but it didn’t
I guess I’m running out of time, so I guess I’ll mention a little bit about each of the free writing exercises we’ve had. Winning games, hanging out with my friends, and my girlfriend make me happy. Friends, family, and my girlfriend are important to me. I haven’t gone to a library outside of school for a very long time. I’ll be using the Newman Library for research and homework purposes. I like my personality, my physique, my brains, and my curiosity. I don’t like my hair. I identify myself as a competitive, intelligent, lazy, hardworking person. Some people say I’m obnoxious. I have no idea where they get that from. My roles in life are lil bro, good child, curious student. School’s fine, procrastination is my biggest challenge and I enjoy the lack of homework.
