SOMETHING ABOUT THE WORLD I ADMIRE
Nature. In all its extremes. There’s something so breathtaking in standing in a place where nature is the norm and humans are the exception. And then there’s small things like finding a newly emerged butterfly, or seeing a sapling which will one day grow to a big tree stubbornly rooted on the roof of a high building. (The photographs below are taken by my sister @ the-peregrine)
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE FORM OF CREATIVITY?
Writing, art, photography.
SHARE SOMETHING YOU CREATED
I don’t have time to take a photo again so I’m just going to link this up to one of my old posts where I shared some of my drawings.
WHAT COLOUR IS YOUR SOUL?
A bright, fiery orange with a streak of cool blue😎
THINK ABOUT YOUR HAPPIEST MEMORY. THEN TELL ME THE BOOK/SONG YOU ARE REMINDED OF
Fight Song by Rachel Platten. Also Thunder by Imagine Dragons.
FINISH THE SENTENCE: ONCE UPON A TIME, THERE LIVED A TURTLE IN…
The bottom of the great blue sea.
DO YOU HAVE AN AESTHETIC? WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE AESTHETIC?
No, I don’t. My favourite would be vintage. You know, pleated dresses, suspenders and newsboy caps. I love that vibe.
WHAT IS THE ONE PLACE/COUNTRY YOU’D LOVE TO VISIT?
One place…this is hard…I’d settle for New Zealand. Literally would do anything to see a takahe or a tuatara.
It’s okay if you don’t know what I’m talking about
DO YOU HAVE ANY PETS?
Yes and they rule the house.
WHAT IS YOUR MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK RELEASE OF THIS YEAR?
That would be Our Violent Ends, the sequel to These Violent Delights. I’ve not read TVD yet and can’t imagine why I’m so hyped for the sequel…
IF YOU COULD MAKE ANY WISH, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
To wake up one morning and to realise I’ve skipped the months May, June, July, August, September, October, and my exam has been written well and done over with. (It got postponed and I am so mad/glad/not sure)
DO YOU HAVE A CELEBRITY ROLE MODEL? IF SO, WHY?
I’m not sure if Sir David Attenborough counts as a celebrity (he’s over ninety years old) but yes, this one has to be him. Because watching Planet Earth is what sparked my love for wildlife and nature, way back when I was around seven/eight.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH 10 MILLION DOLLARS?
First option: travel around the world! Second: buy myself loads and loads of books. Any sane person would do at least one of the two things.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE?
Little Women! This was so gorgeous and relatable. Coming in at a close second is The Return of the King.
WHAT PERSONALITY TYPE ARE YOU?
I did this test months ago and I can’t remember so I’m going to do it again…I got INTP (Logician) Introverted, Intuitive, Thinking, Prospecting. If I remember right, this wasn’t what I got last time…
April @ Booked till Midnight
Nehal @ Books and Words
Cherry @ Letters to the Lost
Alexa @ A Fangirl’s Hideaway
Naemi @ A Book Owl’s Corner
Here are my questions!
What book/movie character do you relate the most to?
What’s your least favourite trope?
Would you rather be a bestselling author or work in a bookshop?
If you could travel back in time, would you go to the past or the future?
Once again, thanks for Ashmitha, Susana and Ritz for tagging me! I’ve got a holiday from school this week, and we had a grand plan to stay up until 2.00 am to celebrate the new year (in here that’s in the 13th of April) and it flopped when all of us fell asleep😅. And also, thing I’m most excited about – we hit a hundred followers!!! Imagine how happy I was when I saw this appear on my notifications:
THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH!! Really, the best part of blogging isn’t blogging itself but interacting with you’all, and it’s been so fun! Sending virtual hugs along the way!
I decided to do a ‘reacting to your assumptions about me’ post to celebrate this milestone, so I’ll be very happy if you all dropped some assumptions about me in the comments!
