My English assignment.

We were assigned to write about one character/author from literature that was memorable to us; Mrs. Bruner later extended that to movie characters as well. The essay is an experiment in writing college essays and so is to be no more than 250 - 300 words. Actually, no more than 250 would be best, but she allowed us to go to 300. This is my response to that prompt; feel free to comment on it. I will be turning this in tomorrow during third period.

Though I watch a lot of movies, I’ve come to identify with a particular movie character the most; that character is Neo, the One, of The Matrix, The Matrix: Reloaded, and the forthcoming The Matrix: Revolutions. The similarities between us are remarkable: our physical state, talents, and importance are so similar that it is scary.
Neo and I are alike in almost every aspect of ourselves. Neo is handsome, and all the females want to be with him; I am handsome, and all the females want to be with me. Neo looks good in black; I look very good in black. Neo is the One; I am the One. Neo can stop bullets with his will and move at super-fast speeds; I can stop bullets with my will and move at super-fast speeds. We can both fly. I am going to save the world; Neo is going to sa.. well, actually, Neo is going to die. But I never said that we were identical, just very similar.
I think that these qualities, added to the others that I possess, are likely to allow me to succeed in school and in life, and wish only for the chance to prove myself. With hard work, dedication, and super-human powers, I believe that I will be an asset to any university that accepts me.
