<p>Here's my essay (for Stanford).. I'd really, really appreciate some feedback (I'll be mailing it very soon). I'll pick the most helpful comment and mail/paypal that person a buck.. just as an incentive :)</p>
<p>Jot a note to your future roommate relating a personal experience that reveals something about you.</p>
<pre><code>My future roommate: I dont care if youre loud. Sing in the shower while Im cramming for finals; blast your speakers as Im writing an intricate essay you can try, but you wont faze me. You see, Im the brother of three younger sisters; I assure you, anything that might annoy me has already been tried (repeatedly). I am so used to finding Barbie on my bed and curling-irons in my sink that I cannot imagine anything you could do to get on my nerves!
Growing up as the only guy has not been easy (especially because my sisters standards of cleanliness border the surreal). Im neat guy, unlike my slobs of sisters, so every day at my house is a test in patience and tolerance. This is why I know that, no matter what youre like or how messy you are, we will get along splendidly (for no one could be worse than them!). If you doubt me, I say: give me your best shot!
<p>(Oh, there is one exception: if you take the last Diet Dr. Pepper and dont replace it, Ill consider it an act of war. See you in September!) </p>
