QUESTIONS

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

London, hands down. If I had chose somewhere in my country though, it’d definitely be New York City.

How many languages can you speak?

I can fluently speak English, partially fluent in Japanese, and know how to count to ten in Spanish.

What’s your favorite TV show?

So many, it’s sad. Right now, I’d have to say Merlin (forever my favorite) and Gilmore Girls (as I’m binge watching it for the first time!)

Did you watch the Shadowhunters premiere, and if so, what would you rate it? (NO SPOILERS PLEASE, I HAVEN’T WATCHED IT)

I did! I’d give it a solid 6/10 and a condolence five.condolence 5

How many times have you watched the Harry Potter movies?

So many times that if you add up all the hours I’ve spent watching Harry Potter, I wouldn’t be surprised if it totaled about 3-4 weeks of my life. If you want a number, probably up to 20ish times on some movies.

Describe Twilight in three words.

Poor Cedric Diggory.

What’s your favorite book series to date?

If you don’t know this, you must be new here (hi!) It will always be The Infernal Devices by Casandra Clare. Will Herondale is bae.

Favorite author?

I love some many authors, but my favorites are Sarah J. Maas, Cassandra Clare, Leigh Bardugo, Marissa Meyer, and Jay Asher.

What’s your dream school (as far as college goes)? If you already went to college or are already in college: dream grad school?

As for undergraduate degree, I’m not too picky so probably just University of Washington, but for graduate school, my top choice is Illinois College of Optometry.

Dream career?

You might’ve guessed from the last question, but my dream career is optometry! For those of you fortunate enough to have perfect vision, an optometrist is an eye doctor.

What song are you listening to right now?

Currently not listening to any songs, but the last song I listened to was How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful by Florence and the Machine. I love the brass fanfare at the end!

RANDOM FACTS

  1. As making this post, I’ve discovered the left click on the mouse pad on my laptop no longer works. Fun!
  2. I’ve been absent from the blogging scene due to school and the insane amount of textbook reading I’ve been having to do. 😦
  3. I know way more about the Bolsheviks then I’m ever going to need to know.
  4. During my middle school years, I seriously considered going by my middle name since I’m not the biggest fan of my first name.
  5. At the current moment, I own more Harry Potter socks than regular socks. No shame. (To be fair, I threw out a lot of my old socks recently).
  6. I’m clearly not a very interesting person because I’m running out of facts to share.
  7. I have yet to attend a single High School dance and don’t really plan on going. I’d rather be reading!
  8. Yesterday, I procrastinated on my homework by watching High School Musical and singing along. Again, no shame.
  9. I get weirdly tired from 5:30-6:00 and then I’m always wide awake until 11 PM.
  10. Yogurt pretzels are my favorite snack food of all time. I actually think I’m addicted. No I’m not eating some while writing this.
  11. One of the pillows on my bed has a raspberry design on it, which makes me always want raspberries.

  1. Oh gosh! I didn’t see this and I just did the post-y thing, I’m so sorry I probably seem like a terrible person!! Thank you so much for the nomination–I loved reading your responses. I’m totally with you on feeling tired around 6 but wide awake around 11; it’s probably not good for my health and sleep schedule, but what can you do. And Will Herondale is everything.

      1. Hahaha true! It’s an endless cycle. Power naps are risky for me though… oftentimes I’ll end up waaay oversleeping, and then I’m panicking because I haven’t done homework… and then I sleep even later… yeah, not good.

      2. Lucky! You can rely on your pets, then. I’ve only had one pet in my life, and that was a goldfish that had a rather short life, haha. What kind of pet do you have?
