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.

“Much like fairy tales, there are two facets of horror. One is pro-institution, which is the most reprehensible type of fairy tale: Don’t wander into the woods, and always obey your parents. The other type of fairy tale is completely anarchic and anti-establishment.”
— Guillermo del Toro on how horror is inherently political as a genre, Time Magazine (x)

I got tagged by Shing (abittwee). <3

Rules:

  • Post the rules.
  • Answer the questions the person who tagged you made up.
  • Write ten questions yourself.
  • Tag ten people to answer your questions.

Questions for me:

1. What’s the best movie you’ve ever watched?

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, Love Me If You Dare, Before Sunset, Kill Your Darlings, Frances Ha, Pan’s Labyrinth, My Girl, The Breakfast Club, Welcome to the Dollhouse, Wristcutters, Electrick Children, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (I know answering with a list is cheating, but how do you pick just one?)

2. Name a hobby that you’ve always wanted to try but have never done

I’ve always wanted to try theater since I took a GE class a couple of years back. Wait, does that count as having done it? If it does, then my second choice is yoga. Also: baking, film, dance, and collage.

3. What’s your comfort food? 

A burrito from Mexicali!

4. Are you a day or a night person? 

Definitely a night person.

5. Name the person who you idolize the most

My three role models! JK Rowling, Sarah Kay, and Brit Marling

6. What’s the one thing you cannot live without?

Toss up between tea and books.

7. Did you try and keep a journal/diary/sketchbook when you were young and have you looked at it again?

Yes to both. I was smarter then.

8. What’s your most prized possession?

Hmm, I don’t think I really have one? I’m trying to think of what I’d save first in a fire and I’d definitely go for my books, collectively. Probably Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief first, then gather everything else in my arms or idk die in the fire.

I do have my Leo tree, which one of my friends gave me for Christmas last year. It’s basically a sort of wire construction with pictures of Leonardo DiCaprio stuck in a mug filled with teabags. I’d definitely say it’s one of my favorite things. Here is a picture.

9. Do you consider yourself an introvert or an extrovert?

Super introvert.

10. Recommend a game!

PAPA LOUIE. Go crazy. My personal favorites are Pastaria, Cupcakeria, and Pancakeria, but all the Papa Louie games are great and addicting and awesome.

The joke that Bender tells but never finishes (while crawling through the ceiling) actually has no punchline. According to Judd Nelson, he ad-libbed the line. Originally, he was supposed to tell a joke that would end when he came back into the library and said, “Forgot my pencil”, but no one could come up with a joke for that punchline.

Did they just make up this entire movie on the spot.

No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.

(Dead Poets Society, 1989)

Obsessed with this freaking movie
