There is no proper way to describe yourself. You can put on rosy glasses and sound like a conceited ass, or you can view yourself negatively and sound like a terrible person. You come out looking bad either way. With this in mind, here is a feeble attempt at a description:I'm a university student, studying English. I began as a psychology major, who didn't particularly want to be a psychologist but figured choosing writing as a career would be the slow road to starvation (and I really like food). I was increasingly aware of just how much I loathed psychology, and recently made the rather frightening decision to switch. My family may forgive me... one day.
I'm a hopeless insomniac, I drink too much, I am constantly quitting smoking only to start up again, I am a book snob, (and a movie snob, and an art snob and a music snob - let's go with all around snob). I am scared of spiders, condiments, and George Bush. I spend a lot of my free time writing and creating art in various mediums which I attempt (actually with reasonable success) to peddle to unsuspecting Literary magazines. When I am not doing this I am shamelessly addicted to video games - World of Warcrack and my old school Super Nintendo being my current favorite means of supporting the addiction.
Recently I also spend a disproportionate amount of time plotting revenge against the raccoon in our neighborhood who makes my life hell. I also attempt to come up with innovative ways to steal the drum-set from the guys next door, who have no sense of rhythm but insist on playing for hours everyday (they do not even have the decency to improve with practice).
