Hey! I’m Sam (Samantha Murphy), a 19 year old girl. This blog is about my daily life. Please read it. Also, I have two other blogs, but I’m not really active on either of them anymore, so… yeah. Anyway, read my blog or don’t. Your choice.
Alright, some more about me. First, my looks. I have dark brown hair, and brown eyes that look exactly like my siblings’ and all my cousins’ on my dad’s side. It’s just genetic, I guess. I’m 5’4″, so I’m kinda short, but one of my best friends is 4’11”, so I’m tall compared to her. I wear glasses most of the time, except for the occasional day when I put my contacts in (which really doesn’t happen anymore). And I think that’s it for my appearance.
Second, my family life. I’m the oldest of four kids. My oldest brother is two years and three days younger than me. My little sister is seven and a half years younger than me. My youngest brother is nine and three fourths years younger than me. I mostly hate being the oldest. Sure, there might be the occasional day that I enjoy it, but most of the time it’s wicked annoying, especially since I get blamed for literally everything (and yes, I am from New England, so I say “wicked” a lot, too).
Now, on to my interests. I absolutely love to write. I actually want to be an author for a living. I have a 2 1/2″ story binder that’s really hard to close because it’s so full of my ideas and my stories that I’m writing. I’m on Wattpad and NaNoWriMo. My username is zizzlekwum. It may not be professional, but it is unique, and that’s what I like.
I also love to read. I don’t have a favorite author, I’ve recently realized, because I just read what I like. My absolute favorite genre is science fiction. I love sci-fi. It’s amazing. Almost all of the books that I’m writing are sci-fi. There are two exceptions, though. One, the ones that I purposely made not sci-fi to try and challenge myself. Two, the rare ones that I get an idea for that aren’t sci-fi. I think there’s only one of those at the moment (January 10, 2014). Anyways, my favorite books (right this second) are… well, let’s separate this into two categories: my favorite books coming from a writer’s perspective, and my favorite books coming from a reader’s perspective. The writer’s perspective favorite books are the Divergent series, but the reader’s perspective (POTENTIAL SPOILER ALERT) absolutely hates those books because of the ending. Curse you, Veronica Roth (POTENTIAL SPOILER ALERT OVER)! My reader’s perspective favorite book is probably the I Am Number Four series. That series is amazing. Although the reader in me is starting to like it a little less, too, though….
I also like video games. I love Pokemon (and don’t you tease me for it or else you’ll regret it!). It’s amazing! I can’t even begin to describe how excited I was when the first Pokemon game for the 3DS came out! I’m amazing at Halo. Just ask my oldest brother. He’ll groan at being humiliated because he gets beat by a girl (his older sister, mind you), but he’ll admit that I’m awesome at it. I don’t play Call Of Duty a lot, since for the longest time my two little brothers hogged the PS3, but now that we also have a PS4, I get to play more often. I really like playing Exo Zombies on Advanced Warfare.
One last thing: I am OBSESSED with Grey’s Anatomy. You know, the best show ever? 🙂 It’s literally a huge part of my life. You’ll find that many of my posts will include something Grey’s Anatomy related in them. Oh, and also:

Okay, I think that’s a fairly thorough “About” section. Don’t you? Now, go read my blog, please!
