what do you think of starting the short answer section with "This past Summer...?"

<p>Is it perfectly okay to start off like this or would you recommend starting off the answer in another way?
The question is: In the space provided below, please elaborate on one of your extracurricular activities (1000 Character Max.).</p>

<p>thanks in advance!</p>

<p>Doesn't grab me - I would try to think of something different.</p>

<p>Depends on how you continue it. Just "this past summer" sounds boring, but if you say something like "This past summer I fought a dragon" it becomes much more interesting.</p>
