<p>What to do?</p>

<p>... so write about whichever one you feel most confident about. I'm applying RD and I wrote about 'intellectual engagement' with a schizophrenic hobo I happened upon in the local library 2 years ago who is my best friend now and who has played bass for 40 years. I wrote about him teaching me to play bass, and us conversing about Nietzsche, whom he loves.</p>

<p>That's so awesome!! I'm sure the story is a great one.</p>
