Today I thought I could do something a little different.
Considering there are some people out there who read my blog, but don't know me very well, I thought I could talk a little about myself. Hobbies, favorite things, etc...
One of my favorite things to do is read. If I had to choose between going to the beach and staying in and reading my book, I would choose my book. I read an entire trilogy in a span of a week and a half and immediately started a new one.
It's like watching a movie, but it's in your head. Only it's better. Reading is definitely on the top of the list of my favorite things to do.
Yea yea, it might be cliche, but reading really does make me happy.
Along with reading, I love to write. Short stories, poems, and prompts are my favorite things to write. Whenever I get a cool idea for a story or a prompt, I try to get it on paper as fast as possible, because when writing, you want to write it down as quickly as possible before you forget it. Or else you might no get that idea back. I used to write comics with my best friend and she would draw the pictures for them. I always thought the idea of being a writer or a journalist was really cool, because that's something I really enjoy doing.
If I had to choose something I would be famous for, it would undoubtedly be for a book I wrote.
Every day, there is a 80% chance there will be my ukulele glued to my hand. I play it every single day and it annoys my dad sometimes. If I ever get in trouble, my punishment is no uke for the day or longer, and I truly suffer.
One time i kinda spaced out and I guess my brain thought i had a uke in my hands like i usually do, and I started playing 'air ukulele' at the beach for a good six seconds. I got some weird looks after that.
When people see me around my close friends, they tend to think i'm very "sociable" or "extroverted", but when it comes to meeting new people and the whole "hello nice to meet you. my name is..." bit, i'm pretty socially inept.
When we go out with people I don't know, or people i'm not exactly close with, I usually stay quiet, cause I despise 'small talk' and i'm not exceptional at thinking of questions to ask, or how to answer them myself on the spot... And It's not cause I'm uncomfortable or bored, I just sometimes get a little anxious and spaz out and I can't produce actual words. And really, I just like to observe rather than talk when it comes to people I don't know. Sometimes out in service it's very hard for me to speak to people, but even though I get anxious sometimes, Jehovah always helps me to get through it and teach people about him. And I always enjoy service. But trust me, once I get more comfortable around you, I never shut up.
And my friends can confirm.
One of my best subjects in school, is vocabulary. Which is ironic, considering I forget how to communicate when I'm around strangers. My friends get surprised because I'm "really articulate". Vocab is not my favorite subject, but that doesn't mean I don't pay attention during it. Not to mention I watch a lot of British T.V. shows. And because I like to write, it helps to know the "big words" when writing to make it sound more sophisticated.
My absolute least favorite subject, is math. Ever since I was little, Iv'e HATED math. And I'm unquestionably bad at it. I always have, and always will. I'm absolutely certain that math WILL BE THE DEATH OF ME.
Last but not least, SHERLOCK... 'Nuff said. :)
