My Common App Essay -- appreciating your generous advice!
"I want to be like a single cell." said I, at a natural science class when my teacher asked for the creature to make an analog of me, "It seems simply fresh and alive, but it has an elegant and metamorphic structure; it is ephemeral, compared with the globe, while it keeps transforming, duplicating, covering all around with the most exuberant power."
Wide spread in natural science, my interests once granted me with the label as "versatile", merging physics, astronomy, biology, geology, environs--and the most, chemistry. Totally fascinated, I considered it as the sorcery of nature. Ever since, my vitality kept flaming: either libraries or labs had my marks of figures; I learned, questioned and affirmed, and in a desirable return, I could have a view of the living magic created by tubes and chemicals. Once I even rushed, with an extra-size lab-coat, heavy-and-muggy boots and partly-worn gloves, to class--a performing course--so I told about my "fashion" vividly and made another fun, then kept rambling in the mysterious world with inspirational, changeful imaginations with unextinguished sparkles. And I again engaged myself in labs, again learning, questioning and affirming, in alacrity.
"Oh, dear, your DNA must be composed of convoluted polymers named fancy and truth." said my teacher. Yep; I loved envisioning the splendid view I had kept in memory since absorbed in photography; I enjoyed the scenery revolving ever in daydreams at a sunset on the coast side; for the chemicals as if invoked to act by wizards but also certified to react by founded properties, things were even more alluring since I could grasp the underlying and have a lucid insight.
Thus I was going to bring about the integration. I studied the "sorcery", the visual effects of chemical reactions, and tried to deliver a selection of them in a flowing show. At first the abundant types of reactions dazzled my eyes as I could not make an aesthetic interlock; fortunately, I got a finesse. I asked for electrolysis to evoke the reactions, and used knowledge about materials and apparatus--electrodes, batteries, glass, graphite, PET & PEDOT--to build a special equipment by which one could move a electric-transmissive brush at will to switch on or off any unitary electrolysis baths arrayed in lines and rows with thin bulkheads, whereby the colors of pH indicators in solutions varied in control and only water and electricity was consumed. After operation when units accorded to the landscape, the pictures on the water-made screen--once a symbol, a flow of waves, then the image of laurels along a lake--seemed a reunion of scenes hosted by water. The series of scenes exulted as the water vibrated, recalling me of all the imaginations drawing near to reality.
"Yeah. I love them both." I exhibited my live-scenery show in lab suit, and found the integration influencing my thoughts and pursuits, exerting the exuberance of inspirations like a blossom which derived from a single cell with double helix. A thirsty dreamer seeking for truth. An imaginative researcher enlivening his fancy.
Thank you in advance!
