Hi guys, I have two essay prepared for the MIT pleasure Essay. Can you please tell me which essay is better?
We know you lead a busy life, full of activities, many of which are required of you. Tell us about something you do for the pleasure of it. (*)(100 words or fewer)
Doing housework is definitely not pleasurable, but I enjoy it. Watching my parent's tired back and gloomy face, I know that managing a business is hard. However every time my father came home he would always squeeze out a little smile and reassure me: "everything will be alright". I love my parents and I yearn to help. However they want me to focus on my studies, so I decided to do what I can: housework. Now, when I see my parents' joy as they return to a cleaned home, I can't help but enjoy this boring and never ending work.
*This was during High School. I start working after graduation.
Running the X-Acto knife meticulously down the center of the cutting line and waiting patiently until the glue between two small pieces of paper dried, I came to love this craft. This is a craft of creation, where every incision and gluing give life to an idea. This is a craft of great dedication, where a simple error of deviating 1mm from the cutting line could affect the integrity of the work. This is also a craft of mathematics, where geometric equation is your best friend when dissecting the complex polygon. This is Pepakura*.
