Recently I saw a lot of “Getting to Know” articles in different clubs and the idea intrigued me. I thought that maybe I’d plant a seed in my favorite club and see if anything came of it (and I totally am not writing this to avoid working on my personal statement like the plague). So the basic idea is to introduce yourself and give some other information about yourself that might not come up otherwise in general conversation. It’s a very informal type thing but here I’m going to suggest some things that you might want to go over but you don’t have to. Just list anything you feel comfortable with sharing.
Here are some example articles if you wanted to look at them.
How did you find Fanpop?
Where are you from?
What schooling have you had?
What do you look like?
What are your friends like?
What is your family like?
What are your favorite school subjects?
What are your favorite books/TV shows/movies?
What kind of music do you like?
What are your hobbies?
Who was your first favorite?
Who do you hate?
Which X-Man inspires you most?
What is your favorite X-Uniform?
Which X-Man do you wish you were related to?
Which X-Man (or woman) would you most like to date?
Which X-Man would you love to hang out with?
Which X-Man do you most resemble (physically or mentally)?
What is your favorite type of X-Man? [rebelling weapon (Wolverine, X-23), reformed villain
(Magneto, Rogue), matured little girl (Kitty Pryde, Jublilee), etc.]
Which X-Man has influenced you the most?
Which X-Man do you wish you resembled (physically or mentally)?
Again you don’t have to answer all of these and you can add any that you think of, they’re just examples. I’ll probably get around to writing one this week and if you like the idea you can write your own. I look forward to any that get posted.
