10 Things About Me

When I grow up
: When I grow up I want to be a marine biologist. I’ve always loved the ocean, and I’ve been very fascinated with aquariums. The fish inside are the best part. There are so many unique fish, shellfish and reptiles that dwell in the water.

My favorite food is sushi: I have always been really interested in how sushi is made and the flavor profiles it has. There are so many different combinations and endless possibilities of what you can create with sushi. To me it’s more of an art than a food. The best part is the taste. It can taste cold, hot, spicy, milky or salty.

My type of music: My type of music is really strange. I like music from 1980’s to the late 1990’s. Maybe a little bit from the 1970. My favorite band is Queen. Although my favorite song is Insane in the Membrane.

My favorite things to do after school: I play football. After school, almost every day, I go to football practice. But after football I got home and play video games. My favorite games to play are either Fallout 4 or Counter-Strike: Global Offensive with my friend Carter.

My personality: How I am is really funky. I am the biggest joker. Even when I’m not saying a joke or a funny comment, I’m thinking it in my head. But that’s not all, I also can go a little bit crazy sometimes. That is how I get my best idea’s.

My dream: My dream is to take a tour of all of Europe. I have wanted to go there since I was eight years old. If I would have to choose, I would go to London. I want  to see Big Ben, the London Bridge and the London Eye.

My favorite color: My favorite color is green. Green is all around and there are so many different shades of it. If I had to choose I would go with neon green.

My favorite book series: My favorite book series is the Rot & Ruin series by Jonathan Maberry. It has so many plot twist and turns, I could go on and on. My close second is definitely The Enemy series. If you can’t tell, I’m really into zombie action books.

skydivingThe thing I’m most scared to do: The thing I’m most scared to do is skydive. I am not really scared of heights but, jumping out of an airplane doesn’t sound too good to me. But still, I really want to do it just for the thrill of it.

My family: My family is everything to me. I have a mom, a dad, a brother and two dogs, Josie and Murphy. My dad is the reason I get up every morning and come to school. My mom is there for me when I’m down. But they both make me laugh. I do love my brother, but boy, does he make my blood boil. I don’t know where I’d be without my dog, Murphy. He is the cutest King Charles Cavalier. My other dog is a Cocker Spaniel, she’s my ol’ girl. We’ve had her for 9 years now. My family holds me together and I wouldn’t be the same without them.

All About Me






My name is Maraya and I am writing for the McDowell Media blog this year. I am very excited to be writing for the blog!  I would like to tell you a little about myself before you read our blog.

One of the first things that I would like to tell you is that language arts is one of my favorite subjects.  A few of the reasons why it is my favorite subject is because I love to read and write.  I love to read because it’s so fun to get caught up in a good book.  I love writing blog posts as well as stories.

Another thing that I would like to share with you are my different interests and hobbies.  I play many different sports including volleyball, basketball and softball.  I have been playing softball for a while and it has been my favorite sport even since I started playing.  My favorite position in softball would be pitcher, but I also play 1st baseman and 3rd baseman. I have been playing basketball for five years and this is my first year in volleyball.  Another hobby that I enjoy would be 4-H.  In 4-H I took market rabbits and next year I am planning to take breeding rabbits and market rabbits.

Finally I would like to tell you about some of my favorite things. As I already mentioned, language arts is one of my favorite subjects and I love to write. But another one of my favorite subjects would be science.  I also love pizza, it is my all-time favorite food, but my favorite dessert would have to be cake.  My favorite sport is definitely softball, which I have already told you, but my favorite sport to watch would have to be football.

I hope that you learned a little about me in this blog post.  With it being my favorite subject, I am really looking forward to language arts this year and writing for McDowell Media!

The hobbies I have are mainly coin collecting, spending time with family and friends.  I think coin collecting is really fun and cool.  I think it is fun and cool because you get to go to flea markets and other places that sell old coins.  My favorite board game is probably chess.   Another hobby that I like is listening to classic rock. Which is my favorite type of music.  My favorite band is The Who.  I also like other bands like AC/DC, Queen, The Beatles, and Pink Floyd.  My favorite singer right now is Brian Johnston.  My favorite subject is math and I want to be a mechanical engineer when I grow up.

I love superheroes.  I don’t have a favorite superhero, but it would be between Wolverine, The Flash, or The Green Arrow.  My favorite villain is between Thanos, Ronan the Accuser, Deathstroke, or Azazel.  I like Star Wars and the Lord of the Rings.  I don’t have a favorite show or movie.  My favorite sport is basketball.  I also like table tennis(or ping pong).  My friends and I like to shoot Nerf, play paintball, and go do lasertag.  Summer break is the funnest time of the year for me.  I like to fish whenever I get the chance to.  My favorite food is donuts and in my opinion the donuts at Gypsy Joes are the best because they’re huge.  That is what I’m telling you about me.
