Common App Essay Topic

I've started brainstorming ideas for my common app essay and writing extremely rough drafts. I'm just trying to get a feel for what I want to write about. Would anyone like to share what their topic is? Or how they settled on it and knew it was the right choice? Also, anyone that's already been admitted to college how did you know when your essay was done and you didn't want to make any more edits?

right now i compared the way how i believe that thursdays are my favorite day of the week to my life being speculated! (they have no correlation in theory but that’s the fun of it!) honestly i just knew the things that made me feel different and i couldn’t decide so i just branched them to make it fit!

I am writing two essays since I can't decide, but once essay is going to be about my love for arts and the other will be about my love for cooking since those are my two career choices!
