Hey !! So clearly you're here to find out more about me. Well, I'm gonna tell you a lot ! First off, you can call me Sky, Jay(from my username), or pretty much anything you like.
See that little quote above this ?? Why that one, because I'm the star server on our volleyball team. I don't serve overhand, but have pretty rockin' aim with underhand. Also, the two speech-bubble quotes about volleyball, well, I wrote those.
I play C flute in concert band at out school. My flute is blue. (: I'm pretty competitive when it comes to extracurricular activities, and I like to beat everybody. I'm currently trying to learn piano. I'm teaching myself...
I'm on the Scholastic Bowl team. Yes, I'm pretty much a nerd....but a popular nerd at that. I got first place in the AMA math test we took. I also got first place in the Geography Bee. And Second place in the spelling bee. Oh, and first place in a writing competition.
I'm trying to learn German so I can speak it fluently. Teaching myself that, too... Spanish just doesn't click with me.
((Are you tired of reading yet? Told you there was a lot!))
I'm obsessed with music. People that know me know that I have a song for every situation. And not just new, popular music. 70s, 80s, 90s, pop, rock, metal, rap, R&B, anything.
I have one really close friend (on this page to the right) and many other friends. I'm a trustworthy person and good around people in general. I get a weird sense about some people sometimes. I also love little kids (ya know, like newborn-6 yrs old).
I love Astronomy and Cosmology. I spend a lot of time looking at the sky (I guess I'm properly named), and researching Astronomical/Cosmological things. If you ever mix up Astronomy and Astrology, I will probably slap you then give you a long speech about the differences. It irks me when people get the two confused. I want to work at NASA or for the ISS someday. Random fact: For awhile I wore a silly band in the shape of an astronaut, until it broke. Now I always wear headphone, snail, and music note shaped ones.
((Tired now?? Don't worry, I'm almost done...I think.))
I also love My Little Pony (as you can see) and I like to draw them in human form. Cute, right? I think Niall Horan is the cutest One Direction boy, although I really don't listen to their music much. I'm obsessed with Nate Ruess and his music. And music speaks to me in a way no one else can.
Okay, I guess I'm done...BYE !!!
Volleyball isn't just knowing how to bump, set, spike, and serve. It's knowing how to get the ball to the setter when you bump. And knowing where to set the ball for the spiker. And knowing how to spike at just the right angle so the other team can't block.
Serving isn't just getting the ball over the net. It's knowing all the places on the court 1-6, and who's the weakest on the opposing team. It's knowing how to aim your serve to the opposite corner so no expects it coming. It's knowing how to think the serve all the way through before serving. It's knowing how to keep a straight face so the other team doesn't read your face. It's knowing how to hit the ball just hard enough it stops at the top of the net, then tips over. It's knowing how to use force. It's paying attention to what your teammates say. It's remembering your steps so you don't trip. It's watching that line so you don't cross it. But most of all, it's about doing all of that in less than 5 seconds !!
