My sister thehipsandthearcs tagged me back. Not posting the rules or tagging anyone this time around, but here’s my first go at this tag if you want to take a look at that.
1. Do you have a weird memory from your childhood? If not weird maybe life changing? Or maybe something you remembered and enjoyed?
I have a lot, actually. Not a lot of good, conventionally happy ones come to mind, but I do remember my favorite thing to do when I was a kid. I grew up in my grandparents’ house and we had a tiny library in there. I liked to spend afternoons after school reading in this purple bean bag chair and listening to Home Radio. After that, I’d have merienda, which was usually RC Cola and Potato Chips or Cheese Sticks or Piattos. It’s not very different from what I like to do now, except I don’t live at my grandparents’ anymore, the bean bag chair has burst, and sometimes I drink tea instead of soft drinks.
2. What would you do (for at least a week) that isn’t sleeping or going online?
Like, non-stop? Travel probably, if I had the money, but only for a week because I like my room too much. A more likely option would be to fix up my room—rearrange my books, paint the walls, make collages, that kind of stuff.
3. What the best book you’ve read so far and might recommend (something that IS NOT TFIOS nor any John Green books nor any futuristic dystopian survival type of book)? If not a book, maybe a TV show or a movie?
My favorite movies are in that first tag. My favorite TV shows are Community, Carnivale, Pushing Daisies, and Skins UK (only Generation 1, heh). Some of my favorite books are The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, Going Bovine by Libba Bray, Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, Coraline by Neil Gaiman, The History of Love by Nicole Krauss, and The Street of Crocodiles by Bruno Schulz. Oh, and Hamlet, because it was Shakespeare’s birthday yesterday.
4. Do you have any favorite painter? Or if there’s none, maybe a favorite director?
I don’t know a lot about art, but I like Hieronymous Bosch and Vincent Van Gogh (because who doesn’t). My friend and I were just talking about our favorite directors and my top three are Noah Baumbach, Christopher Nolan, and Brit Marling.
5. What’s the worst nightmare you ever had (something you actually dreamed about)?
I have this weird recurring nightmare where I get lost in this labyrinthine toy store that’s as large as S & R. If not a toy store, then an equally labyrinthine mall or a labyrinthine version of my grade school. It’s the same store and mall and grade school. The labyrinth doesn’t change and since I’ve been there so many times, you’d think I’d find my way out, but I never do.
6. *the next question will be weird because this person’s face is flooding my timeline and i was just curious* *even i am weirded out by this question* Do you think Ansel Elgort (Augustus Waters in TFIOS and Caleb Prior in Divergent) is attractive? Or hot or whatever?
Not really. I don’t know, he’s okay.
7. Did you ever dream of becoming something you think is impossible for you to achieve now?
Hahaha always. I used to want to be a writer, but now I want to be a hermit.
8. The worst childhood ruiner you ever heard.
"When Two Become One" by The Spice Girls. And Macaulay Culkin.
9. Did you master something on your own? Cooking, driving, etc.? If not, what would you like to master on your own?
I learned how to ride a bike on my own. Does that count? I also learned how to knit on YouTube, but I didn’t really master it.
10. Where’s the place you’d want to be in than home?
New York City. Or somewhere in the Scottish Highlands.
