Hi All,

I've been in a slump for the past few days, and I decided one of the things I'd do to pull myself out is put down some things I like about myself...namely, 5 things. This will give you a chance to not only let you get to know me a little bit, but I also want you to try and do the same thing. If you can't think of anything to write, just come back when you can. They can be simple things, too. So here I go.

1. I'm extremely intelligent. I won scholarships in high school for my mathematics and physics grades, and was a top science student at my college before transferring into philosophy at university. In university, I earned a 3.9 GPA and earned high praise from all my professors for my essay writing and innovative ideas...not just in philosophy, but also sociology and English literature.

2. I like my eyes. They're a pale blue, and I have a steady, warm gaze.

3. I'm great with kids. My good friend has a four-year old daughter, who never stops playing with me when I'm at their place. My cousin has a 6-year old daughter and a 4-year old son; last time I was at their place, the kids played with me a half-hour before I left and they didn't want me to leave. I volunteered to help out with an autistic boy at a program: I spent an hour-and-a-half playing with him and about 5 other boys. I even earned a new nick-name...Bowser! I was pretending to be the bad guy from Super Mario. :]

4. I'm very good at explaining complicated issues. I work as a tutor, and am able to explain the logic behind complicated concepts to my students. I've also helped many of my friends with problems in their lives by being logical and thoughtful.

5. I'm a very kind-hearted person. I volunteer my time helping people with disabilities, and want to make solving people's problems my life's work. I'm not sure exactly what type of work that will be, as long as it involves me working with people to make their lives better.

These are five things I like about myself...and having put them down, I feel all the better for it. It's an empowering experience to see an objective measure of your self-worth. So give it a try!
