That makes me very sad....


My PS: I cry about being half-adopted and vow to help all of the children who weren't as lucky as me.


That story was famously written by Hemingway when he was asked to tell a story in six words. There are some contests for writers that feature the same rules, I'm too lazy to find them right now.

Note, that doesn't mean the story isn't true in the PS. And it is a sad one.


Its not true. I plagiarized to win the essay contest. I felt that I could've written it, so the fact that he wrote it first is just a technicality.

Look at that subtle off-white coloring. The tasteful thickness of it. Oh my God, it even has a watermark.

I'm a young woman who likes drinking and making beer. Having an unorthodox hobby has helped me nurture many positive traits.

Every PS should be as follows:

Hi, I am X. This horrible/cool thing happened to me. I learned from/survived it and became a better person. Here's how I want to use that experience at law school and beyond. Thnx.

I wrote about when I was an FBI agent in Los Angeles and had to go undercover as a surfer to stop a group of bank robbers called the Ex-Presidents.

Mine was about being from Southie and working as a janitor at MIT where I solved a really tough equation, after which I was encouraged to take the LSAT and apply to law school.
