Hello friends! When I first started my blog and Instagram account, I decided that once I reached 250 followers on Instagram I would do a Q&A. Random, but true. So, I bring to you the Q&A that no one asked for. I got super into this, and made an IGTV where I answer the questions. You can find it on my Instagram, which (btw) I highly recommend you follow. We have a good time AND you get a closer look into my life. Anyway, I put up a question box on my Instagram story, so my followers could ask questions. Here are the questions some lovely humans asked:
What is your favorite candy?
Anything chocolate! My absolute favorite would probably Nestle Buncha Crunch balls.
What is your favorite movie?
This is hard to think of off the top of my head, but after thinking about it, I think my favorite movie would be The Princess Diaries. It’s a staple in my childhood and it’s so funny! It also has Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews, two literal queens 👸
What made you start blogging? When did you start blogging?
Nothing really made me start blogging, I just had a random burst of creative energy and decided to carry that over into a blog. It was really spur of the moment! I got the idea in early February, spent a day or two researching and contacting bloggers and then started creating my blog! It launched on February 12th of this year.
Favorite school lesson?
My favorite subject in school is probably French. I really like learning about the culture and it’s such a gorgeous language! I also think it’s super useful compared to the majority of my other curriculars.
What is your dream job?
This is a good question, but a hard one! I’m not someone who thinks very far ahead, quite frankly, thinking ahead scares me. I think it would be cool to be a physical therapist or do something with nutrition.
What is your favorite animal?
Dogs! All dogs are amazing, unless they are grossly small. (Don’t @ me!!) However, my favorite animal used to be a goat, and I was OBSESSED! I still like them, but I think I had enough love for them to last a lifetime.
Where’s one place you’ve always wanted to go and why?
SANTORINI!!! It’s such a beautiful island. I became completely obsessed after watching Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, which is also a really good movie.
Do you believe in ghosts?
I think so… I definitely get spooked on occasion and blame it on ghosts. I’m definitely not an extremist, but I’m skeptical!
What is your favorite thing about blogging?
My favorite thing about blogging would probably be that it’s a free space for me to express myself. There so much judgment from people I know, and I’m free of that here. I know I shouldn’t care what other’s think, but I can’t help it!
Are you a vegetarian?
I am not. I have really thought about it recently, actually I’ve been contemplating becoming vegan, but at this point I don’t think it’s practical. I don’t eat a lot of meat or animal products, but I plan to cut them out completely once things aren’t so weird.
Pineapple on pizza?
Yessss!!! It doesn’t deserve the hate it gets 😦
How has blogging allowed you to express yourself?
Blogging has probably played the biggest part in my self development. As I said in a question before, here, I’m free of judgment. On my blog, I share my feeling and thoughts that I would never dare discuss with others. I’m also an extremely quiet person, so here it’s easier for me to be myself and get out my thoughts and feelings.
I said a different one in my IGTV, but now that I’ve had time to think, I think my weirdest experience would be, once again, in France at this weird little haunted house. It was a building with bats taped to the walls and pretty bad production and decoration. We just walked through the rooms until there was one with this mad in a cape. It was so funny! At first he tried to scare us, but we ended up talking for the rest of the time. So yeah, that was pretty weird, but mostly fun!
Who is your favorite singer?
I’m not a huge music person, so I gravitate more towards music that’s always being played in my house. That being said, I would say that Ben Platt or Ariana Grande are my favorite artists.
Favorite travel destination?
I haven’t traveled a lot, but everywhere I go I’m completely obsessed with. My favorite place that I’ve traveled would probably be Carcassonne in Southern France. It’s this gorgeous city with old and new districts. I’m in love with the old district, it’s so charming!
What is your favorite TV show?
JANE THE VIRGIN!!! It’s such a good show! It has a little bit of everything and I can’t stress how amazing it is. It’s on Netflix,so you should definitely check it out.
What kind of music do you like?
I don’t listen to a lot of music, but I like the music that you guys recommended to me a few months ago. I don’t really know what type that is, Indy? (I think…) I also listen to show tunes. Definitely not as much as I used to, but I still like them.
What are your hobbies?
I love love love to run. So, running, singing and theatre. It’s been a year since I’ve done a show, but I’m definitely going to do my school’s musical next year. I used to be a little theatre kid and would do 3-5 shows a year.
Do you have any siblings?
Yes, I have a younger sister and a twin sister.
What are some of your favorite accounts?
Would you rather be strong or smart?
As an athlete, I would absolutely love to be effortlessly strong, but I’m going to have to go with smart. I feel like there’s only a certain level of intelligence that you can achieve without some sort of insane “smartness.” You can always get stronger, but you can only get so smart, and it’s a lot more effort 😅
Who/What is your biggest inspiration?
I don’t really have one “blogging wise,” but my biggest inspiration in general would be Meghan Markle. She’s so strong and I love how she uses her platform. Not completely sure how you find her on the UK side of things, but I adore her!
What are your pet peeves?
I have a lot. Lots of things annoy me, but I guess the main ones would be people scraping their utensils against their dishes, slow walkers, and people who talk to loud.
What are your best traits?
I love this question! I would say my best traits would be that I’m a good listener and that I’m practical.
What are your favorite ways to pass time while in quarantine?
Honesty, working on my blog! I don’t spend nearly as much time running as I should, but I spend more than 3 hours a day on Instagram working on that account and probably a little less on WordPress reading other’s posts and writing. I also love to exercise, and I make sure to do it at least once a day. Right now, I’m really loving yoga and strength training (weight lifting).
That’s it! Thank you to all the lovely humans who submitted questions and thank you to YOU for reading! That’s a little bit more about me, so hopefully I’m still not a complete stranger. I just felt so weird that you guys knew basically nothing about me… See you on Wednesday!
