10 Things You Might Not Know About Me...

 (Warning: Not Book Related)
First off, I would truly like to apologize for the lack of posts since about August when school started. Keeping up with AP classes and volleyball and this blog have proved impossible for me so, but I am trying really hard to prevent the inevitable (which is to go on hiatus until next summer). I would really hate to do that, but school comes first. Anywayzzzzz, These are just 10 things about me that you may not know that actually don't have to do with books or reading, oh yes be excited!

In no particular order...

10. I'm an athlete, all day, everyday. Maybe not all day, and maybe not everyday, but pretty close. There is about only 2 weeks during the year where I am not practicing or vigorously involved in a sports team. I started playing sports when I was 3 and it just kind of stuck and became a part of me. My #1 is of course volleyball! I have been playing varsity volleyball since my freshman year of high school and I play that in the fall and throughout the summer. Then comes basketball, and then track, my second favorites. I also play softball and soccer, but a lot less vigorously than the others. I am in love with sports. I really couldn't imagine my life without volleyball or track. I love everything about playing sports, its so much fun, and I love pushing what I think is my limits and improving and competing!

  9. I am obsessed with nail polish. Ha, didn't see this one coming did you now? If there was anything I collect as much and have too much of (well according to other people) besides books would definitely have to be nail polish. I change my nail polish designs pretty much every two days. I love creating different nail art designs and on my nails as well as my friends. It's so much fun and has kind of become a fun obsession of mine.

8. I have Aquaphobia. It sounds like a serious medical disease but it is really just a fear of bodies of water. Seems weird since I'm from the Bay Area, but yeah. Any body of water larger than my bathtub I am afraid of. It has been this way for as long as I can remember. People say I'm afraid of water because I can't swim. NO! I can't swim because I'm afraid of water. There's a difference!

7. I don't care what NASA says, according to me, Pluto is a planet!

6. I am probably the most sarcastic person you will ever meet. Sarcasm is the best intellectual device ever in my opinion!

5. My favorite colors are blue, black, and purple. Just in case my blog layout doesn't give that off.

4. I'm think I'm very outgoing, but according to my mom, I'm just loud. I could be worse...I think.

3. I want to become a lawyer/journalist/...something else. I was never one of those, I want one career kind of people. If I'm going to be in school 8 more years after I graduate high school, it better be worth it. Someday I would like to have my own published magazine. Like a multi dimensional magazines, that has things all kinds of girls, and guys of course, would like to read about. Not just what color highlights Miley Cyrus decides this week (nothing against Cyrus, she never did anything to me and shes a great artist but really, since when is hair highlights breaking news).

2. I am a mall rat. Yes, I hold the title with pride. If I'm not at the library, just check the mall you'll probably find me with a Jamba Juice in hand.

1. I don't get the point of a scarf, they look cute, but my neck never gets cold. 

1/2. My name is Chioma, and I love to read. 

That last one must have really thrown you guys off. So that's just some things you guys might not know about me. Sorry nothing too exciting, but not every one's life can be a Degrassi episode (thank heavens for that). Maybe I can do a ten of the weirdest things that ever happened to me post, but still nothing teenage soap opera worthy though. But I am really enjoying these top 10 posts. Let me know if there is any specific top 10 posts you guys would like to read. Thank you for reading and don't forget to leave a comment!

Monday’s Question of the Day

Monday's Question of The Day

Wow its been a while since I’ve done one of these. Today’s Monday’s Question of the day:

Is there a certain element what has to be in a book in order for you to consider reading it? 

I remember when I was in elementary school and I would not read a book if there was not some sort of mystery involved. If it was just a romance or just a contemporary school life novel, I would not even touch it. (Just because I thought only mystery books could live up to my obsession with the Nancy Drew series). And then when I was in middle school I wouldn’t consider reading a book if there wasn’t even the slightest, smallest hint of romance in it. Now though I would read any book that I think is going to be good whether it has any mystery or romance in it at all!

Feel free to leave a comment answering the question, I look forward to reading your responses!
