These short personal essays help us become acquainted with you as a person and student, apart from courses, grades, test scores, and other objective data. It will also demonstrate your ability to organize your thoughts and express yourself.
In no more than 250 words please introduce yourself to us. Let us know about your personality. Please remember that Monroe College likes well rounded individuals so be objective and remember to include some of your flaws.
I consider myself an extremely social person; I canít imagine life as a solitary individual. I express myself either verbally or through dance, which I consider an art form. I probably come across as shallow to those who donít know me, but thatís because Iím afraid to let people know the real me. Iím slow to trust and quick to care; most people say Ďquick to loveí but Iíve never been in love, never felt love for another individual, not even my parents. I care about them a lot, but love? It seems a little too much to extend to two non-existent parents. I have a tendency to be impetuous Ė sometimes itís been a curse, sometimes itís been a gift. Iím a people person and Iím very good at reading people; because of this, I get a little too wrapped up in other peopleís opinions. Being alone scares me, so I feel the need to constantly please the people in my life to keep them around. I tend to be fiercely loyal but my lack of follow through is notorious Ė itís not that I quit so much as I change my mind. Iím easily distracted and change my mind a lot, but I can be determined and very passionate too. Iím not the smart girl in class or the talented one, but I do try hard (though not always hard enough). I donít want to be the best but I want to be remembered and maybe even loved.
In no more than 250 words please indicate to us your likes and dislikes. Monroe is a center of excellence for more than just the academic and we like applicants to show they are passionate and opinionated.
I am extremely involved with dance; I was enrolled in ballet from an early age and have been dancing ever since. If I donít stay at Monroe, Iíve been accepted to Juilliard, so clearly Iím passionate about dance. I also enjoy cheer and student led organizations but I donít care much for politics. I like whatever makes me happy right now and I hate planning out every detail of the future; I like surprises. I hate art or music or writing that is so metaphorical or confusing that you canít understand it; I want things in my life to be simple. If I wanted them to be complicated, Iíd be a math major. I like the simple things, like spending time with the people I care about. I donít like people with time consuming careers that have children (my parents). You canít be devoted to a job, a spouse and a family; there arenít enough hours in the day. I donít like work for the sake of work; if Iím going to put in effort, there should be a good reason. I enjoy socializing and being around people; being alone is frightening and foreign to me. I donít understand people who shun society or make a fuss about things that I perceive to be irrelevant. I like church but I hate being judged, so I feel uncomfortable ever going. I love to give people things Ė nicknames, gifts, etc. but I donít like when people are ostentatious about their wealth.
In no more than 250 words please tell us about your hopes and dreams for the future and where you see yourself 5 years after graduating college.
My future is always changing; I know I want to work with people but whether thatís as a counselor or a ski instructor, I donít yet know. I donít want to plan it all out. I know I want to travel and meet new people. Iíd love to spend a year globetrotting, experiencing new cultures. I always wanted to learn another language, so maybe Iíll go to France and brush up on my high school French. I believe that Iíll still be in touch with at least my best friend, Blair Winters, and Iíll always be around people. I wonít be married to my career though; I never want to feel so tied down or be so busy that I canít stop to enjoy lifeís little joys. Even five years from now, I donít want to be too concerned with responsibility. I just want to be happy, and whatever it is that makes me happy is what Iíll do, where Iíll go and what Iíll be. One thing my future doesnít hold is certainty, or the attachment my parents want me to have. They want me to be grounded and to start a legacy as the second generation of Doctor Clarke at their hospital. But I definitely donít want to go back to Pasadena. Ultimately, I know that five years from graduating I want to be making a difference. I donít know what shape that will take, but I think I can do it.
In no more than 500 words please give us a brief personal history of yourself and how you come to be applying to Monroe College.
My parents both attended Columbia University and met each other there. Their shared love of medicine brought them together. They didnít mind the long hours they both worked; they each could sympathize with one another. So even though they only averaged about ten hours a week in each otherís company, they got married and moved to Chicago. A couple years later I came along, but nothing changed. They worked constantly and I was with nannies until I was old enough to take care of myself. Then they just entrusted me to the combined watchful eyes of the cook and the housekeeper. Fortunately, one of my caretakers had an interest in dance and had my parents enroll me in lessons at an early age. I enjoyed it and just never stopped dancing. It allowed me to express myself; I could pour my soul into a routine and let out my anger without anyone ever knowing. Not that anyone would have found out Ė my parents never attended my recitals. The most I got was my nanny cheering me on from a seat in the audience but it wasnít the same. I viewed my parents lack of interest in me as abandonment so Iíve never allowed myself to trust anyone enough to love them; I havenít really experienced the love of a parent so if love at that most basic level doesnít work, Iím wary of loving anyone just because my heart tells me to.
When I was nine we moved to Pasadena, where my parents have been ever since. Iíve avoided ever taking an interest in science because I donít want to be like my parents and become a doctor. Luckily for me, Iím probably not cut out for it. Instead I focused on dance and the more artistic side of life, but I never became the tortured artist that seems to be the stereotype of anyone labeled Ďartisticí. Dance and cheer were things I excelled at and through my participation in those, I made a lot of friends. I socialized a great deal and school seemed kind of secondary Ė I didnít see the need to focus on calculus or physics if I wasnít going to be a mathematician or a physicist. Dancers need to know how to dance and I thought Iíd be a dancer. But after being elected to student council my sophomore year, I realized that life as a dancer might be a little lonely and Iíd rather be around people. After all, anything that involved people, I tended to excel at. I applied to Monroe with the intention of becoming a teacher, but after my first semester decided that wasnít for me, so instead I changed to a communication major. It didnít seem like enough though so I added a Human Development and Family Studies minor. Combined with my activity in the Delta Gamma Sorority and I finally feel like I may have found a place Ė until I change my major again.
Iím somewhat claustrophobic and Iíve had to have counseling to help me overcome my fear of small spaces but I still have panic attacks if I get overwhelmed. Itís been a difficult road, but I feel like my struggles with this have strengthened me as a person and given me insight into a potential future career as a counselor.
In what way are Aaron Teegarden and Kyle Sterling connected?
Aaron Teegardenís death started with Kyle Sterling and the sudden discovery of his conscience. Yes, Kyleís death was a bona fide suicide, but the list of his metaphorical executioners reads like the society pages: Ashworth, Prescott, James . . . Graves and Roses. The truth is just another casualty.
PLEASE WRITE AN ESSAY OF AT LEAST 400 WORDS ON A TOPIC OF YOUR CHOICE. (RPG SAMPLE)
|There really were times when Evangeline wished she was alone.|
No, that wasnít right. Not alone. Never alone. More likeÖ surrounded by people she cared about, but in an undemanding setting. One where she didnít have to talk or laugh or make note of the little details of her friends lives as she usually did. Moments when all that she wanted was to maybe be on a stage with a crowd of people she cared about watching her as she danced. It was funny, really, how Ev really hated forms of art that really made a person think hard, yet she channeled so much of herself into dancing. Ballet wasnít just pirouettes and turns and tutus to her Ė it was expression of every emotion she was feeling or had ever felt, turned into motion. She felt like dancing right now, she felt the need to vent her emotions in a way that wouldnít result in yelling, screaming arguments or bloodshed or the ending of friendships. Why did she need to vent? Because she wasnít sure how much longer she could bear the burden of a guilt greater than the span of the Atlantic.
Ev cared a great deal about her best friend Ė Blair Winters, after all, was one of the few people that really understood her, or seemed to anyway. B was probably the person she was closest to out of anyone in the world and it was B that Ev had, unwittingly, betrayed. Granted, her blood alcohol level at the time of this betrayal should have given her a free pass, but Ev knew better. She might have been smashed at the time, but that would not excuse her for sleeping with her best friendís boyfriend. And it shouldnít Ė Ev couldnít forgive herself for it, so why should B? The fact that Evangeline hadnít even remembered the encounter until a couple days after it had transpired spoke volumes of how drunk sheíd been (she had in fact, blacked out after one too many helpings of the very spiked punch). But when the fuzzy memory had found its way into her sober brain, Ev had broken down and had a panic attack.
She hadnít said anything to Blair Ė she was terrified of losing not only her best friend, but all of her friends in the sorority. That kind of brutal backstabbing didnít go unpunished. If it got out what had happened, Ev would lose Blair. And the rest of the DG girls. By extension, sheíd lose any friends who were mutual friends with the DG girls. Sheíd lose friends with the Sigma Piís. Essentially, sheíd be left friendless, black listed on all Monroe University speed dials. And if there was one thing Evangeline was afraid of, it was being alone. She had severe abandonment issues (thank you full time doctors, absentee parents) and the idea of losing all her friends and being completely alone (and by extension, the opposite of popular) sheíd be falling victim to her greatest fear.
It wasnít like this was a habit of hers Ė this had been a one time slip up, a huge mistake that had only been committed because, honestly, sheíd been feeling a little distressed after a meeting with her academic advisor who had told her if she didnít settle on a major soon, her future would be shot. She didnít necessarily believe him, but sheíd been distressed enough to do some shots with the Sigma Piís and well, she didnít remember much after that. She was usually notorious for holding her liquor but everyone had their limit and apparently, Ev had learned hers the hard way. It was particularly distressing that sheíd behaved in this manner to her, because not only was this her best friendís boyfriend (duh he was off limits) but sheíd slept with him Ė something she really didnít make a point of doing (though she allowed everyone to believe that she had her fair share of ďsleepoversĒ, that was in fact, not true).
So, thoroughly distressed as she was faced with lunch with her best friend in less than an hour, Evangeline locked herself in her room at the house, and tried to do the breathing exercises she was supposed to do when her claustrophobia was getting to her.† Narrowly having avoided a panic attack, she pushed her desk chair out of the way and cleared off space from the middle of the room and began to perform a slow piece sheíd learned when performing in Swan Lake in high school. As she concentrated on her emotions though, she quickly found her movements becoming more fast paced, until she had transitioned from ballet to a furious dance that was more hip hop in origin, letting her emotions run out of her like water in cupped hands. When she stopped a half hour later, her chest heaving as she fought for breath, she felt, if it was possible, a little bit better. But not much.†
