Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: How Ruskie got into Boalt with a sub-160 and what she's learned from it« on: October 25, 2007, 11:10:23 AM »
The fact that Ruskie has decided to reveal so much of her personal life on the internet is disturbing to say the least. It feels like she wants to be a celebrity.
What person between the ages of 12 and 30 doesn't reveal much of their personal life on the internet? Ever seen facebook, xanga, friendster, myspace?
Me, for example. It's nobody's business what I do and I keep it that way. I am deeply suspicious of people who want to be known by those they have never met. That's not to say I am not engaged in the internet. I have been posting here for at least three years and no one knows the first thing about me other than a few details. The same is true on other sites I use--facebook, other forums.
To each his own, but you must admit that you are the exception rather than the rule.
Why do you want strangers to know about your life? I fundamentally do not understand. Anonymity is a warm blanket.
