What Makes You Unique

Have you ever truly thought about it?
That question that is so simple, yet so hard to answer.
What makes you unique?
What makes you different  from the billions
of other people in the world?

Sure, we all look different.
We all have different personalities.
We think different thoughts
& we all walk different life paths.
If you take two people, and give them the same dilemma,
and two solutions, they may choose to solve their problem differently.
But then again, they could also choose to do the same thing
& the outcome would still be different.

I am currently reading The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch
And in the very first chapter, he poses the question:
What makes you unique?
And it got me thinking about myself.

What makes me unique?
What makes me Tasia?
The answer isn't all that simple.
In fact, I can't think of anything off the top of my head
that makes me different.

Which is kind of way I wanted to start a new series.
I'm not sure how long I'm going to run it.
Or even what I'm going to do with it.
But I need to figure out what makes me, Me.
And that's what 2011 is all about.

So, let's start this off right, with a little survey of my readers.
What makes you unique?


  1. This question is a loaded one. I can't name any, because it is the hardest thing to discover about yourself. It's near impossible. I wish you luck in figuring out what makes you unique. I'll probably do a post about this too... thanks for the inspiration. =]

  2. I'll say that I'm probably one of the few college guys who are celibate.

    One thing I know that is unique about you is your writing. Because it is impossible for someone else to write exactly like your creativity, same goes for every other writer in the world. Thats what makes writing so much fun because no one else can know what we're thinking when we write.

  3. I think uniqueness is found in the little quirks and idiosyncrasies we have. Like, for example, I like to eat ice cream with a pickle fork rather than a spoon!
    And I'd have to say every family is unique as well. No one family functions exactly the same way as any other! They can be eerily similar, but they have definite unique traits. And since we're all raised with a family of some sort, that affects who we are for the rest of our lives. :)
