If I had to label MYSELF?

I would say, “white, 27-year old, very traditional Catholic, educated, mid-westerner.” I guess not much more than that.

I’m a 24 year old “girl next door” who is a huge nerd (just finished a book on the spread of flu and now reading one on malaria) and who LOVES to travel.  I really enjoy reading, playing with our dog, and watching football.  I’ll take part in any athletic endevor and love adventurous activites.

I’m an adopted Canadian atheist gamer/geek with an extensive library and severe creative tendencies. I’m also a linguist, a grammar Nazi, a part-time actor/singer, and pretty much a 28 year old kid.

I’m a 26 year old, white woman from the midwest.  My job involves me being a huge computer geek.  When I’m not at work, I enjoy being creative with fashion and home-decorating, drinking beer, and participating in sports, such as running and tennis.

Hmm, interesting idea:)  I’m a California girl:  Blonde hair, blonde teeth and blue eyes.  Very WASP-y family, though I’m a moderate politically and have devoted myself to yoga and lean toward Eastern religions (Buddhism/Hinduism)

I read incessantly and on every subject imaginable, from chick lit to philosophy (which is why I come off as a know-it-all at times.  Okay, at all times:)  Have a degree in journalism and even though I have worked as a freelance writer, I have never had a real career in my life and my resume holds the most unconventional jobs, from non-profit work to film producing. 

Right now I have an ebay business but am thinking of moving back to Cali to manage/market my friend’s jewelry business, which is just about to blow up.  In a good way:)

You know what is going to be interesting, seeing what people put first in their descriptions.  Though it may be completely innocuous, why do we see ourselves as “white” or “chubby” or “black” or “smart” or “sweet” or “29” before we see ourselves as anything else? Just thinking randomly.

I’m a Christian, white, conservative, California girl, control freak who loves being home and spending time with my husband and family. I enjoy running, reading everything I can get my hands on, building up my home library, experimenting in dairy free cooking and traveling.

@heather25: I think part of it is that we, in general, have a hard time putting ourselves into boxes and putting labels on who we are. It tends to be easier to start with obvious physical things like hair and skin colour.

@Aure: Heh, I just realized I put zero physical characteristics in my own description.

@heather25: yeah, that’s the interesting part about this discussion…how do we all describe ourselves when we don’t have predetermined specific questions or blanks to fill in? For example, while I’m “straight,” I wouldn’t put that in my “description.” Is that either because it’s more common so that’s what people would assume? Or because while it’s true about me, it’s not how I define myself? Would a “gay” person be more likely to include that in his/her description?
