About Samantha Chioma
I go by the pen name of Samantha Chioma.
I started this blog years ago, but I’ve actually been writing for as long as I can remember. In the age of a multitude of bloggers, free newspapers, Google and Wikipedia, I started to long for blogs that held literary and critical value - that could tell a story or convey an opinion creatively and thoughtfully, without sacrificing the ease or enjoyment of reading; blogs that could use the English language with exquisite delicacy but vivid imagery.
I believe different blogs serve different purposes, so, not all need to pay attention to vocabulary, grammar or punctuation detail, e.g. fashion or music blogs, but I decided that I would endeavour to be that type of blogger that I longed for.
I hope you’ll continue on this journey with me, and I hope even more so that you’ll enjoy it; that you’ll learn things about me, yourself and the variety of life. And I look forward to you teaching me, too, so please be encouraged to leave comments, questions, recommendations, (reprimands)! It is because of the comments from readers that this blog is kept alive.
I write critical commentary on personal revelations, events, Christianity, the world, art, music and behaviour. In other words, I write about anything that comes to mind, and I try to be as honest as possible.
I realise I have not been very specific about myself, so for you information-junkies: I’m a British-Igbo 25 year old Science graduate, a Psychology and Physical Health enthusiast, a London inhabitant slowly learning French and Spanish and who has heart palpitations every time she walks into Zara (the shop).
I can also be found cycling on my 1985 Raleigh Caprice (also named Zara) or running in various parts of West London, or working on my first novel slumped in the corner of my bedroom. I hope to work internationally in deliberately vague attempts to save the world. I describe myself as an optimistic realist, which is probably just me being kind to myself, as I am also sure I am 70% crazy, irrational, and impulsive; 20% logical and cynical, and the other 10% I haven’t quite figured out yet. It could be ‘loving’. Yes. Let’s say it is.
In spite of all this crazy, somehow, some unsuspecting man has decided he would like to spend the next 70 years plus with me, and would also like me to deposit half of my genes in his future children, so I am actually (quite excitedly) preparing to be someone’s wife in 2013.
More details to come as they happen.
