Q&A Monday: Part Two

Q&A Monday: Part Two

From my ‘Get to Know Me Asks’ Post on Tumblr

Last summer I made a post on Tumblr of 100 questions for bloggers to ask in order to get to know each other. Since then it’s gotten over 5,000 notes and it’s been awesome getting to read people’s answers. In hopes of getting to know more people on WordPress I’ve started answering them here in a series, and you can find Part 1 here and the original Tumblr post here. I’d love if you guys answered the questions either on your blog (tag me and the original post) or respond in the comments so I can get to know you guys better!

11. What song has the most relatable song lyrics to you?

Ooo. There’s so many I could say. There are two that come to mind first. The first is Last Hope by Paramore.

And the salt in my wounds isn't burning any more than it used to
It's not that I don't feel the pain, it's just I'm not afraid of hurting anymore
And the blood in these veins isn't pumping any less than it ever has
And that's the hope I have, the only thing I know that's keeping me alive

The second is Peace by Taylor Swift. She committed an act of violence with this song.

Our coming-of-age has come and gone
Suddenly the summer, it's clear
I never had the courage of my convictions
As long as danger is near
And it's just around the corner, darling
'Cause it lives in me
No, I could never give you peace

So, yeah Taylor if you would like to pay what you owe me for emotional damages then DM me here, thank you.

12. Iced drinks or hot drinks?

Hot, definitely. If I don’t have a hot drink (preferably coffee first thing in the morning) my day doesn’t feel complete. I would hate to choose though, because I drink iced coffee all year long.

13. Bright colors or neutral tones?

Generally neutral tones. I tend to gravitate toward calming colors and I wear a lot of black, navy, and gray. However, I love to decorate with splashes of color with a neutral and light backdrop.

14. Breakfast for dinner or pizza for breakfast?

Breakfast all day, every day! I love breakfast food. I can’t eat things like pizza first thing in the morning. It doesn’t matter what time it is, my first meal of the day will be breakfast if I can help it.

15. Do you have a green thumb or a black thumb?

I can’t tell lol half of the plants I grow thrive and the other half are fighting for their lives. I love plants though and enjoy having a lot of them in the windowsill. My orchid just bloomed for the season yesterday and I’m obsessed with it.

16. What’s your favorite feature of yours?

My eye color. I was born with chocolate brown eyes and they’ve gotten greener as I’ve gotten older, just like my mom’s. Now they are definitely hazel and one has a small black dot in it.

17. Would you rather be a lawyer or a doctor?

Oh heavens, definitely a doctor. My trauma response to arguing could never. I would be a terrible lawyer as I would just break down and cry. However, I would also fail as a doctor since I can’t do math to save my life.

18. What type do you tend to go for physically?

My type has always been tall, dark, and handsome for men and looks-like-she-can-kill-me for women.

19. Power of invisibility or flight?

Invisibility, no question. I have always wished I had that power, since I am a hardcore introvert with terrible self-esteem.

20. Would you rather wake up with your makeup magically done or your hair?

My hair, PLEASE. I have thick, curly hair that you could potentially do anything with, but I absolutely hate styling hair and love doing makeup.

There we have it! Next Monday I will post the next ten. Do you have any of the same answers as me? I know there’s a few of you who would vehemently disagree with my opinion on pizza for breakfast. I accept that I am probably in the minority on that. Tomorrow I’ll be posting another book review for Thriller Tuesday, so check back in for that update if you’re interested. I hope you guys have an amazing start to your week! (❁´◡`❁)

Q&A Monday: From my ‘Get to Know Me Asks’ Post on Tumblr

Q&A Monday: From my ‘Get to Know Me Asks’ Post on Tumblr

Hello friends!

Last May my boyfriend Craig (who at the time was just a friend) and I spent a bunch of time trading lists of questions that we would answer and send back to get to know each other better. It was kind of like a 21 questions deal over text message since he lives in The Bahamas and I’m in the States. Since I had around 80 compiled, he helped me come up with enough to make it an even 100. Then I posted the list on Tumblr as a “Get To Know Me Asks” Post. Since then it’s gotten almost 5,000 notes making it by far my most popular post. It’s been really fun to read people’s answers and I thought that I could make it a series on here to answer 10 a week as a way for my followers to get to know me. Even better, I’m hoping that you guys will answer the questions too, either in the comments or in a post of your own. You can reblog my original Tumblr post here! If you do the challenge be sure to tag me and link this post so I can get to know more about you too!

1. What were your summers like as a kid?

I read constantly! When it wasn’t hot I spent a lot of time outside with the neighborhood cat. I also went to summer camp a few times and every year I attended VBS at my church.

2. Do you enjoy thrilling rides like rollercoasters?

Ah, no. I’m super scared of heights! I haven’t been on many but every time I screamed bloody murder.

3. Who was your childhood hero?

Jane Goodall! I wanted to work with animals, but now that I’m older I know that I definitely couldn’t sit in the jungle and watch chimpanzees for hours because I’m scared shitless of spiders. (You, an empath, sensing that I am an anxious person. And you would be correct.)

4. What is your favorite book?

Anything by Sarah J. Maas. If I absolutely had to choose I would say Kingdom of Ash. I also have an emotional attachment to North of Beautiful by Justina Chen. If you ever are looking for book recs you can find some on my Goodreads and of course, I post book reviews on here!

Queen Maas always going to come for your ass

5. What do you find most attractive about your crush?

This one was so difficult. There are so many I could say! I guess I’d have to say Craig’s energy. He gives off such warm and loving vibes and the way he carries himself is just really attractive. I’ve always told him that he embodies sunshine and if you see him smile or hear him laugh you would definitely understand what I mean.

6. What’s your favorite outfit?

My dark wash skinny jeans, my black TWLOHA tee shirt, a black hoodie, and my black dr. martens. No, I don’t often wear bright colors, lol. This is assuming I can’t just be wearing my pajamas.

7. Does seeing people in love make you happy? Sad? Annoyed?

It used to make me annoyed, but now it usually makes me happy. I’ve turned into a sap.

8. Do you sleep with a stuffed animal?

Oh my gosh yes. I sleep in a ridiculous nest made up of 6 pillows, my BT21 RJ plushie, and a stuffed dog named Loki. I can’t get comfortable enough to fall asleep unless I’m holding something and RJ is a perfect size.

Jin definitely loves his BT21 child the most out of all the members

9. What CD did you play to death as a kid?

There are several. Metamorphosis by Hilary Duff, Tapestries by Carole King, Room to Breathe by ZOEgirl, Steady On by Point of Grace, and Simply Nothing by Shawn McDonald. If you were a kid in a Christian household in the late nineties or early 2000s then I may have just unearthed a memory from deep within the recesses of your brain. I’m not sure whether I should say “I’m sorry” or “You’re welcome”… I really don’t.

10. Hike to a mountain top to watch the sunrise or drive out of town to stargaze?

STARGAZIIIIIIING! I’m known for losing my mind over anything celestial-themed because I love the stars. I haven’t even gone on a proper stargazing trip! I will one day though and I may cry. Before I die I want to see the Northern Lights.

Let me know if you feel the same way about any of these and feel free to answer the questions as I said before! I’m hoping to get to know more bloggers 🥰 Also a quick note: I’m not planning on keeping up this posting schedule. I’ve posted several times this week because I’m trying to get this blog off the ground! So, while I have the time I’m going to be more active than normal. It also helps me for testing out what works best for me as a blogger. When I settle on a more permanent posting schedule I’ll let you know. Thanks so much for reading!
