Hey Medium Family!

It’s time for another quick check-in from About Me Stories (which as of this moment, has 1,930 followers!).

Writers, thank you for your stories, your introspection, and your honesty.

Readers, I think you’re going to enjoy this week’s crop. 😉

10 Selected About Me Stories

As is the case nearly every week, we received some beautiful, funny, and insightful stories. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did, and I hope you find a new favorite Medium writer among those featured.

Without further, here are 10 ‘about me’ stories from 10 unique writers…

“I have a terrible habit of telling the story before the story before the story, like those nested Russian dolls.”

“When I graduated from University, my mom said to me, ‘I know you will never come home.’ I didn’t believe her at the time. But she was right.”

“I don’t mean that I was a bad person, or a mean person, or a malicious person, but simply that I was an asshole.”

“I don’t own a house or a retirement fund, but neither do I have a Bucket List, a job I hate, or all the answers.”

“My content comes from everyone and everything I encounter. I never run out of content because every day of my life — including some of my dreams — is content.”

“I am a true Aquarian by nature — obstinate, eccentric, unconventional, and friendly.”

“I am obsessed with achieving efficiency. This translates into a passion for spotting improvement opportunities in everything I do…”

“Right now I’d say I am someone who doesn’t smile as much as she once did. I’m deeply reflective with many stories fixated inside my skull.”

“People in my life aren’t quite ready to listen to my stories, but someone somewhere might be.”

“So, let’s see…where do I start? What do I put in the introduction of my introduction? My name? My birthday? My…fondness for funky socks?”

Wait, there are more!
