Soccer ball and Guitar

[HOBBIES]

[Sports]

I love playing soccer and basketball, but I'm much more interested in watching sports. I watch any and every sport, but my favorite is soccer. The soccer team I support is called Arsenal Football Club. It's an English team, based in London, and I am a very very VERY avid fan. I may as well call it an obsession. I also really enjoy watching basketball, football, athletics, Formula 1 racing and rugby. My favourite sports teams are the Gators, the Baltimore Ravens and the English and Nigerian national teams for all sports.

[Music]

Listening to music is one of my favorite things. I probably spend at least three hours a day listening to music, mostly while being distracted from actually working. I love discovering new music so I try to be very open to different genres and sounds. I'm a very big fan of motown, soul, jazz and rock 'n' roll, but I also really love a lot of current pop, hip-hop and indie music. I play the guitar, and I'm a proud owner of a beautiful ovation guitar that I hardly have the time to play. I also enjoy singing, mostly in the shower and other discrete places.

[Reading and Writing]

Apart from writing for journalism, I also enjoy creative writing. I've found writing poetry and lyrics to be a very good coping mechanism. In addition to that, I find reading quit therapeutic when I get the chance to do it. I mostly enjoy reading non-fiction and poetry, but I'm always down for a little C. S. Lewis or Shakespearean fiction.
