Hey, this is Sammwak. The owner of this blog is named Sam Mwakasisi (so, yeah that’s me). Anyways, I was just an ordinary kid with super speed typing skills, a smart brain, and a loving family. But when I came across WordPress.com one morning, it asked me if I wanted to make my own blog. Me? A professional blogger? I couldn’t wait. I quickly made a blog, and I’ve been blogging ever since.
Here are some stats about me:
I’m the basic Brainy of the Smurf crew, with a pinch of Papa, a dash of Painter, and a couple tinges of Grouchy. Quizzes have proven I’m the red crayon of the box, the pink lemonade, the Cyclops of the X-Men, the Monopoly car, the white bird of the Angry Birds.
Favorite food: Rice, fries (Worst food: I’m probably getting a lot of parental hate from this, but coleslaw! Ugali’s also in there as well.)
Favorite music genre(s): Metal, pop, rock, jazz, indie, anything that gets me on the move. (Worst genre: What’s up with screamo, and other weird punk genres, like horror punk and crust punk and punkabilly?)
Favorite book: There are so many strikingly good books I’ve read in the market, that I have no such thing as one favorite book.
Favorite book in childhood: Oh, now we’re talking. Some of my childhood favorites were the Frog and Toad series by Arnold Lobel, the Arthur series by Lillian Hoban as well as the one by Marc Brown, the Clifford series by Norman Bridwell, the Ready, Freddy! series by Abby Klein, the Franklin series by Paulette Bourgeois, etc.
Favorite author(s): This a better way to describe my reading types. For good scares, I rely on R.L. Stine (Goosebumps, Fear Street) and Johnathan Rand (Michigan/American Chillers, Adventure Club). For humor, I like reading Dan Gutman, Jeff Kinney, Rachel Renee Russell, Andrew Clements, Roald Dahl, Chris Van Allsburg, etc. (Worst author: Jon Sciezka, after Spaceheadz.)
Favorite restaurant: McDonald’s, of course! Although I do like Wendy’s and KFC.
If you were to find me on the web, I’d probably be: On YouTube, GMail, Cheezburger.com, Khan Academy (basically online school), or in the Wikia Wikisphere of Wikis (or the WWW).
Favorite bands: For metal, I do Metallica, Megadeth, Rage Against the Machine, among others. For rock, I like Smashing Pumpkins, Chumbawamba, Collective Soul, etc. For smooth jazz, I like Candy Dulfer and Acoustic Alchemy. Electronica or house? Basement Jaxx, Moby, Benny Benassi, Clazziquai, etc.
Worst book ever read?: Actually, I have a couple. I have Three Musketeers. The first one is Dork Diaries, the most cliched book alive. The second is Big Nate Strikes Again, the Last Airbender of realistic-fictional novels. The final one, the downright worst, is Jon Sciezka’s Spaceheadz.
Favorite shows: Pretty much everything on Disney Channel and Cartoon Network. (except Problem Solverz. I hate Problem Solverz.) It’s more rare for me to watch Nickelodeon’s blocks anymore, but Regular Show and Adventure Time have to be the all-time best.
So there’s a little chunk of my pie. If you’re looking for a place with laughs, adventures, and honesty, you’ve reached the one-stop shop you’ve been looking for. Sammwak…when the sodium levels burst through the roofs, we get a little salty…yeah, do you think I should change that tagline?
