An Introduction

Hi! I'm Aki! I've never done this before and it feels kind of weird, but I'm sure that after a few entries I'll get the hang of this blogging thing.
I'm from Pittsburgh, PA-I've lived here for the past four years-and I'm 15 years old. I like to read, listen to music, and read even more. Oh, and I play volleyball too(I'm a setter). My favorite book at the moment is Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, and I like the band Of Monsters and Men, though I'm sure that those favorites will change soon. My goal for this year is to read 30 books, and I'm on book 23 right now, so I'm making pretty good progress. I also play the piano. I'm currently working on a Chopin waltz, a Beethoven sonata, a Bach prelude, and Brahms' Rhapsody no. 2. Though my favorite out of those is the Rhapsody.
I'm very proud of my title, Laughing at Dragons. I would love to say that I made it up all on my own. But alas, that is not the case. Another one of my favorite books is The Hobbit, and in the first chapter, Bilbo tells himself never to laugh at live dragons, and I totally agree with that piece of advise. So that's my title. And it sounds cool.
So I'll probably be blogging about things that enter my mind, or things that I do, and so I'd like to welcome you to this beginning of this adventure.


  1. Welcome to the blogosphere, Aki! I love your title too. I look forward to seeing what you come up with here.
