Oh gosh, I have been sat all afternoon with the laundry basket as my desk (which FYI is not that great ergonomically) in attempt to compose a Letter of Motivation for Erasmus. The deadline is tomorrow. Of course I have been quite aware of this date – circulating it with arrows in my diary and all – but no, I have to sit down last minute. In true student tradition. While I jotted my way through all the cheesiest of cliches, I was chatting with a mate from uni going through the same scenario. We were joking about what it would look like if we wrote an actual honest application. For me, I reckon it would be somewhat like this:
“The following is a list of particular skills I possess.
1) Procrastinating. This letter for instance is a work composed the night before deadline. Take this as proof of my creativity.
2) Furthermore, I am a compulsive TV-show binge watcher. The past month alone I have watched circa five seasons of Modern Family. Such a task requires a great deal of commitment, and is thus evidence on my strong character.”
Then to finalize, I will go Vive la France. Bulletproof, ey! Ach, pardon my lousy humor. This is what a few hours of word vomiting would do to anyone. On another note: we are moving! Not across the country this time, but a few blocks away. Circa 300 metres walk away from Campus ❤ ❤ ❤ Here’s to a mold-free life! And a weekend full of fun French such as the Subjunctive rule! *raises my mug of chamomile tea*
