A little about me

Whenever someone asks me in an interview, "Tell us something about yourself.", I start with the basics. My name, what I study, where I study etc. Then a little bit "I am an honest individual, I am organized etc. etc."

But is that all I am?

Is that all there is to know about me? What about all the hundred different things that make me who I am? Small things, big things, medium sized things, things that have nothing do with a few, mere facts.

I am me.
I love chocolates.
I love Anime, and I hate it when people say they are cartoons. They are definitely NOT cartoon. They have a specific name for their genre. I would appreciate it if they are called by their proper name.
I like Phineas and Ferb, despite being a 3rd year university student, and I am not ashamed to admit it.
Books are my drugs, and reading them is my addiction. If you see me with settled down with a good book, well, good luck trying to pry me away from it.
I like it when it rains, though I may not want to get myself caught in it always and get wet as a result.
I also like it when it snows, even when I have to trudge through knee-length snow.
I like animals, but only from a certain distance. I let them be their way, and I expect them to leave me alone. Nature is for all of us to share.
I am scared of the entire global warming. I am afraid my country will drown as a result of rising sea level, and I don't want that. I wish the political leaders of the world would do something about stopping, or preventing it, rather than arguing and not doing anything about it.
I love my motherland. Despite all the problems she has, I think it is one of the best places to live. I also think she is the most unique place in the entire world. She has given me an identity that I am proud of.
I also love my fatherland. He has taught me to be stronger. He has taught me to do things I never thought I was capable of doing. I am glad he took me in.
I like being lazy, and not doing anything. Contrarily, I also enjoy hard work.
I love my sister the most in the world. Her birth changed my entire life.
I love writing, and I aspire to be a writer one day. I have finished writing a novel, which I want to publish someday.
Greek mythology never fails to amaze me.
I am proud of my religion.

I am me. One insignificant person in a planet full of billions of people, one strong individual capable of turning the tide.

I am me.
