Tell me something about yourself

This was the first question I was asked in an interview last Tuesday. I had no idea what to say. I did say something which I don’t recall now although I am sure it was something unimpressive if not outright stupid.

The point is, I truly had no answer to that question. I don’t know who I am.

I don’t know what I want, don’t know where I want to go, what I want to be or do. I truly don’t.

Why bring this up now? It’s four in the morning and I can’t sleep. And I am thinking of how the next month is going to turn out. My studies are almost done. The next month will decide where and what I’ll be doing in the near future. Since I don’t know what I want my future to be, it means that events outside my control will decide my future - for better or for worse.

I wonder why I can’t sleep.
