*A picture of me when I was 12*
Hello, as you probably all know, my name is Andrew! If you are new to the blog, then let me introduce myself a little bit. It shan’t take so long. 😉
I’m an American, which apparently is hard for me to accept. I rather stay with the “I’m a Russian story” since my mother has a very strong blood-line of Russians. Her grandmother was a Russian, therefore, I guess, that’s where my genes came down from. I look nothing like my mother, at least not to me. Though, I do like my father. I’ve come to realize it after all these years. Everyone who sees my father and I paired up, points out the great resemblance between us, which I still struggle to find true till about now. But enough about my genes. Let me pour out towards you blogging readers the information you so wanted to know. I have dirty-blonde hair as you can see in the picture taken above. That picture was taken when I was about 12. Thinking about updating it, but oh well, I’ll just leave it be until I grow so old I don’t even remember how I used to look like. 🙂
I LOVE school, as long as I understand it! Usually I have the brain of a smart person (not in any way bragging, just informing), but sometimes I can easily crumble under lots of information I need to store and process in my head. Lately, in my 8th grade year, the hardest year I’ve had to say, the easiest subject for me, surprisingly, was Chemistry! I don’t know why I can easily remember the chemical formulas and how the formulas are designed and how to translate them into normal words such as H2O, which has 2 Hydrogen atoms, and one Oxygen atom. But that’s just an easy example of what they challenge me with. I HATE Math though. Well, maybe not all of it, but I primarily distaste Math. Geometry is my weakest topic within Math. I just can’t seem to understand and remember all the geometrical formulas for some reason. But I am a bit decent at Algebra, but unfortunately, that soon will not be true, seeing as it’s becoming very hard to understand. I love reading, along with language arts and Social Studies cause they are very easy for me to remember.
As I said before, I LOVE Reading, but I also mean in another sense, that I actually do my Reading cause I love hearing stories. Also, at the moment, I am starting a book series called ‘George Williams’. A series I think people will at least find somewhat interesting and actually feel intelligent reading it, because of the simplicity of it yet, the complicated words to make it seem complex. But yes, I don’t want to spoil too much, from that. You got the point that I love Reading, now that’s move onto some more broad topics.
I have a talent in drawing and writing. Before I was the age of 11, I would take every year a book to practice on my cursive handwriting skills. And trust me, I practiced everyday and soon enough got so good, I am now able to write LOADS of paragraphs on paper easy. Though I do regret forgetting how to write cursively, because I was so good at it, but I’m fine with print. Though, I’ll have to order some of those books again and practice my skills. Another thing, drawing, which is another talent I have! I can’t really say I have a style of writing, I just write what comes into my head. Like one time, I was doing Biology back in the old times where I was home-schooled and took extra curriculum, and I set up an assignment to draw the human brain. Not sketch, but to look at it and draw it. And I did, surprisingly, I wish I could show you guys a picture of the paper, but now it is lost a long time ago! I also drew a picture of the whole human body intestines. Some impressive things I like to think about myself whenever I’m depressed.
I love fruit as well, along with vegetables, except tomatoes and peaches. Otherwise, I love oranges, apples, broccoli, asparagus, pineapple, carrots, and way more! I also love chocolate, but who DOESN’T love chocolate? I mean c’mon! Despite my habit for chocolate, comparing myself to the average American’s daily meal, I am a very healthy American. My father is against any junk-food being permitted in this house, since he is all about healthiness, which I do believe will help me in the long-term result. Though my mother, not so much. My mother does have a limit to how many sweets and candy we can have, but she is more relaxed about it than my father is. Sometimes they have to dispute in arguments because of their disagreement on candy and junk-food.
I love to also play video games, ain’t that a shocker? 😀 I’ve loved it since I was a 9 year old kid that just ordered my first DS Lite. Best console ever and I would take it back if it hadn’t broke because of my brother, but I am not a one who holds grudges like that, but I am still thinking of how my life would have been if I still had that DS. But yeah, as soon as I grew older, I developed into more manly video game consoles. I grew into the PSP for a few years (still love it), then I liked the Wii for a year or two, then I got into the PC hard-core version, and then at last I got into PS3 and PS2. I never liked Xbox or Xbox 360 cause I never seemed impressed with it somehow.
I also love sports. I’ll play any sport besides Hockey, Baseball, or Wrestling (but even sometimes I feel the need to play Wrestling). I’ve played Soccer, Basketball, Football, LaCrosse, Track and Field, and many other sports. I like to say that with my laziness in video games, I also am very active in sports. I also do this special kind of stunt sport called parkour. If you don’t know what that means, then you may please search it up online, which should be very easy for you.
I think we are approaching the last few parts of “About me”.
I also love music and love to play instruments. I can’t say I really know the other instruments seriously, but I do know how to play a few popular song riffs on the guitar and know how to play it in general. I still have much to learn, but I am okay. I can play you the basic beginning riff of Crazy Train; I can play nearly the whole song of Beat it by Michael Jackson; I can play Raining Blood by Slayer; I’m still learning how to play Dream on by Michael Jackson at the moment, and more!! Like I said I still have more to learn!
I also am a fast computer typer. At this pace I’m going now, is pretty fast to me. Though, I used to be faster, and I AM using this on a Netbook so yeah, my computer typing skills are not being used to their best. But I am fine at my pace right now. 😛 I also love rockbands if you did not know. I love any kind of rock, rap, or dubstep. Ooh, I LOVE Dubstep. I think it just makes me head-bang harder than any hard-rock song. Lol. I don’t know why, but I like intense songs and very few times I like soft songs, but only because my parents force me to listen to them in the car.
I also try to work-out as much as possible! I have gotten a decent muscle on my left arm, but for some reason, my right arm, the throwing arm in football, the writing arm in which I write, is flabby and weak. I’m still trying to improve by doing 20 push-ups on one time and then another 20 push-ups. I haven’t worked on my belly, but before, I worked out on it brutally and I have a decent six to four pack. But I DO seriously need to work some more on my belly. My legs though, are completely muscular and fine. I have strong muscles on the side of my legs near my hips and then have huge calf muscles. But this is all “About Me” and it’s nothing to brag. I hate bragging.
I guess that’s it for now. If I feel like I have forgotten some things about myself, I’ll probably update, but if you want to get to know me more. Then please click the links below,
