About Me

I have always found the “About Me” heading the most difficult to fill up. I would usually resort to monotonic, one liners like “An average human being” or “A simple guy”. I have come across profiles on Orkut with extensive and sometimes poetic descriptions about oneself.

I knew I would not be able to that even if I wanted to. But today I noticed that there were a few errors worth rectifying in my profile on Orkut and while doing that out of nowhere I just keyed in the following in the “About Myself” tab.

You psychoanalysts out there, what do you think, does this say something???? What does it tell the reader about me (apart from me being nuts)???Does it show signs of internal conflict (or am I asking leading questions???)

I am a seeker......
I do not know what I seek

I am a dreamer.......
Usually with eyes open

I am extraordinary......
In my ordinariness

Change......I hope to achieve......
Yet even my hope is constant

I am driven by the salt.....
Salt in the tears of time

I am driven by the screams......
Screams within me.......Silent screams
The scream of a seeker.....
A call to the elements......
For answers......
Answers......
Questions and answers.......

I am questions and answers.

Yes frnz..thts true...Pillai sir is really a seeker, dreamer, an extraordinary achiever of sorts ( u jus need 2 see him 2 believe me...he has tht in his eyes)n i m not being sycophantic here...screams inside him...yes they never let him feel happy...but even his unhappiness has a charm...

Talking about Sir's eyes....
wanna add something...They speak, and what they speak is."I Know It All"....i mean its something like better be caught, for there's no fooling around!

Hats Off sir....you actually have an original 'about me' to your credit.:)....for most of the times its some great words(copied, heard, read)...strange how can people do that when we bet on each and every person being unique!!!
Anyway, my fingers still fiddle while trying to write something about myself(gives me a dip at times that i dnt know myself)...but at other times, i feel okay, for there is stuff actually required to be kept to myself!:)
