So here's my topic: How did you spend summer 2009?

The thing is, I didn't really do anything. I lied around on the couch the entire summer. So, what do I do to seem more impressive?

    Don't try to sound profound or exciting. What did do on the sofa? Watch TV? Then write about how you watched TV. The key is to be genuine, not impressive. Also, write what only you can write, (let your personality come through).

    That's really good advice. I'll be sure to think about that as I write my essay. Thank you so much. (:
