Most friends in Sunway College (particularly those in the same intake as me) knew my cacophonous chant of “on the floor”, harassed without knowing what it meant. Here I am, sharing the background story in the form of essay I submitted for admission into Stanford University, titled “A Note to Your Future Roommate” (well I can’t claim it successful since I’m denied admission).
Revolutionary aside, my penchant for this is also attributable to the catchiness of the phrase: so deep it’s ingrained into my mind that it’s so hard to ditch it. But here’s a disclaimer: I used the phrase only for jokes, not when others were discussing solemn issues.
To my friends who identify me as “OTF” guy, I apologize for the bleed on your ears and hope that this text properly explains everything. To future college applicants, good luck for the following five months (three if you’re on for early admissions); I don’t really mean to post this essay for your reference but at least you realize this as one possible direction to answer this question.
