happy excited adventure time clapping finn


S

1. Summer or Winter?

I live in a tropical country so I haven’t experienced Winter yet, and I would love to see and feel real life snow! But Summer is also great because it always means VACATION TIME!

2. Favourite film?

I’m not a big movie person, though I love watching Disney and Pixar films or any animated film. Ratatouille and Inside Out are some of my favorites!

3. What would you do if you had one million dollars/pounds?

Oh gosh, first thing I’ll do is secure it in a bank then I’ll think about all the things I could do with all that money like use it to make my own library, or I don’t know save it up for the future and donate some for charity. (I’m not that money crazy haha)

4. What would your ideal day be like?

Hmmm, just a stress-free day where I could stay home with a kitchen full of foods and read an amazing book peacefully.

5. Most uplifting/badass song?

Singing along Born For This by Paramore could cure bad vibes any day. While Playdate by Melanie Martinez is my anthem whenever I’m annoyed with someone because that chorus is just so badass to sing.

6. Your best memory?

tumblr_static_tumblmarcpic

Uhmm, this is pretty hard… I can’t think of a special memory to share. I think my brain is all fuzzy right now. I’ll just say the day when I finally had my braces off, I REMEMBER BEING SO HAPPY ABOUT HAVING PERFECTLY ALIGNED TEETH AFTERWARDS. 

7. If you could have any superpower what would it be?

I WANT TO BE A WIZARD! Oh, that’s not a superpower… anyways, it would be so awesome if I could fly because I seriously want to be up close and personal with all of those fluffy clouds!

8. What advice would you give to your ten year old self?

BE THANKFUL FOR NAP TIME, SERIOUSLY KID YOU’RE GOING TO REGRET NOT SLEEPING WHILE YOU STILL HAD THE TIME WHEN YOU GET OLDER!

9. Would you rather visit the past or the future (of your own life)?

Let’s get this clear that it will just be a “visit” because I seriously don’t want to mess with space-time and create black holes or whatever. I’ll probably visit the past and relive all the beautiful moments of my life and maybe some of the cringe-worthy embarrassing ones. I don’t want to visit the future because, like the good reader that I am, I don’t want to spoil myself.

10 What is your favourite comfort food?

Ice cream brings comfort even on rainy days. I also love Champorado which is a sweet chocolate rice porridge in Philippine cuisine (and yes, I Googled that definition).

11. What’s something that made you smile today?

I’m was reading The Square Root of Summer a while ago and there was a line said by Thomas that made me smile like an idiot.


S

1. If you could live in a fictional world what world would you move to and why?

Is it legal to answer Hogwarts? BECAUSE I SERIOUSLY WANT TO BE ABLE TO USE MAGIC.

2. Most owned Author?

Miss Jenny Han, because she’s my favorite contemporary author. And I love all of her books so much!

3. If you re-read books what book is your most read? If you don’t re-read books what book would you want to re-read if you could?

I have re-read a couple of books namely Lola and the Boy Next Door (because I missed Cricket so much and I wanted to cure a reading slump), To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before (re-read it before its sequel came-out), and The Hunger Games (after watching Mockingjay: Part 2 because there was no more movie to look forward too). I’ve only re-read them once though.

I WOULD DEFINITELY RE-READ HARRY POTTER, this year but not so soon. I have a long list of other books I want to re-read, and The Realm of Possibility by David Levithan is on top of that list.

4. A quote from your last favorite read?

“That’s the trouble with revisiting the past—it makes it hard to live in the now, and the future, impossible.”

This is a quote from my current read, The Square Root of Summer by Harriet Reuter Hapgood, I don’t know if it will be one of my favorite books because I’m not yet done with it but I’m really enjoying the book.

5. If you could move to a desert island with everyone you love and read to your heart is content but have no internet would you do it?

tumblr_mhv64tfjJu1rt5zeqo1_500

Maaaaybe, it would be okay I guess but I wouldn’t want to be there permanently like for the rest of my life! I could stay there for like a month and then go on in doing other remarkable things with my life, it could be like a break from everything. 

6. Favorite social media platform? (Not including WordPress)

I use Twitter and Instagram a lot, they’re currently just my personal accounts and are not-so-bookish but I still get updates on my favorite authors and other bookish stuff. I might open a full-time bookish account in Twitter and/or Instagram in the future.

AND I’VE RECENTLY JOINED SNAPCHAT AND I ADMIT IT’S REALLY FUN HAHA.

7. Do you have a yearly reading goal? How many books do you hope to read this year?

I had started my yearly reading goals last year (2015) with 50 books, and successfully finished 51/50— yay for me! This year is my first time to do it on Goodreads and I have already read 34 out of 60 books.

8. What book would you recommend to your younger self?

I DIDN’T HAVE A MAGICAL CHILDHOOD BECAUSE I WAS SO STUBBORN AND CLOSE-MINDED, I WOULD DEFINITELY FORCE MY YOUNGER SELF TO READ HARRY POTTER.

9. Favorite Harry Potter character?

LUNA LOVEGOOD ALL THE WAY. Sometimes I just was I could be awesome like her.

10. What would your Ridiculous superpower be? example: Making ice-cream from your fingertips? Shooting Spaghetti out of your palms

tumblr_lp3foe2eqe1ql201ao1_500

I would love to be able to just tell the time even without looking at my watch or at the clock. And not just the time in my current location but in every timezone. It would so cool, people would like ask me what time it is in China and I’ll be like, “5:24 PM” in a smug and cool way. (I’m such a dork.)

11. You most anticipated book release this year?

I don’t really have a book that I was anticipating to be release this year, maybe because I don’t like reading Book Series while they are still on-going. Nevertheless, this year is filled with a lot of interesting and amazing contemporary books, so I’m really excited about those books.


S

1. What is your favourite song?

I don’t have an all-time favorite song because it varies depending on my current mood, but if I had to choose it would be Misguided Ghosts by Paramore just because I love listening to it and the lyrics is just so good.

2. Do you prefer buying books or borrowing?

Definitely buying books, I find it fulfilling knowing that the book is mine to keep.

3. Do you have any pets?

I had a pet dog before, which I already shared the story before in a different post. Currently, we have a cat but it’s more of my father’s pet. I’M STILL WAITING FOR MY PARENTS TO APPROVE OF HAVING A GOLDEN RETRIEVER.

4. What is one thing you want to do in the future?

Travel because IT’S A BIG AND WONDERFUL WORLD WAITING TO BE EXPLORED…when I already have the sufficient amount of money.

5. What is your worst habit?

I PROCRASTINATE A LOT and I hate myself for it. I hate that I always put off things in the last minute, I’m the worst.

6. Your dream job?

giphy (7)

I DON’T KNOW. I’m still undecided on what career to pursue and what to do with my life. Even as a child I didn’t have a dream job, I basically just don’t want to waste my life doing something that I don’t find happiness on. 

7. What genre is your favourite?

Book-wise, I LOVE CONTEMPORARY BOOKS AND YOU CAN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

8. What is your favourite TV show?

I don’t watch TV Shows because I’m really more of a reader but I LOVE ADVENTURE TIME as you might have all noticed with may GIFs.

9. Where in the world do you live?

IN THE PHILIPPINES, that country where the current Miss Universe is from? Yup, I’m pretty like that. Haha, kidding.

10. If you had the chance to meet an author or celebrity, who would you choose?

tumblr_m8g2ayoRHb1rsmvlw

ALL OF MY FAVORITE AUTHORS AND CELEBRITIES AND BANDS AND MUSICIANS AND MODELS. Like J.K Rowling, Jenny Han, Jandy Nelson, Taylor Swift, Lorde, Paramore, and Gigi Hadid. (THESE ARE JUST SOME OF THEM) I’m so sorry I couldn’t pick one.

11. If you had 1 million pounds/dollars, what would you do with it?

The same answer with Ellen’s question, secure it in a bank first of course.

    • My first week with braces was HELL. I remember only being able to eat soup because it hurts so much. But don’t worry, the end product will be worth it! Perfectly alinged teeth are awesome, but retainers also sucks. Haha. Thank you! 💙

  2. Aww I love reading all of your answers, and thanks for the nomination 🙂 I used to have braces as well, that sucked, but now, I’m proud of my teeth (that’s a weird thing to say…..)
    Finding out what you want to be, a job, a career, is honestly the hardest thing ever. I’m sure you’ll find though ❤

  3. Great answers! I’ll keep my fingers crossed for your parents agreeing to the golden retriever; they’re gorgeous and sweet dogs, and (in an ideal world) everyone should have one nearby for ready hugging. 😀

    Thanks for the nomination! Love your questions, and I can’t wait to answer them!

  4. Congrats, loved your answers! This is the first year I have set a reading goal on Goodreads, so I was a bit on the conservative side with my number, I am wondering whether I should increase the limit now..

  5. Thanks so much for the tag! I loved reading all your answers, and congrats on being nominated so many times for this award too.
    I am exactly the same a massive procrastinator, I’ve been managing a bit better since I started this blog but all to often during uni I had to pull all-nighters to get everything done by the deadline.
    I think my stress-free day would be exactly the same as yours, and travelling would be my dream for the future as well, there’s so much of the world I want to see!
    Thanks again for the tag!

    • Thank you! I relate so much, I often start and finish projects the night before the submission resulting to not getting any sleep at all which makes me feel like a zombie in school the next day.
      I know right, I wish we could all have a lot of days like that. And the world is just full of places to explore!

      You’re welcome, can’t wait to read your answers. 😄💙

  6. Great answers! I also love Ratatouille and Inside Out – perhaps Ratatouille a bit more just because I love all the animated food, haha.

    Re: telling the time without looking – some people can actually do this, although probably more for their local time rather than in other timezones. It’s so weird and also so fascinating. 😛

    • Thank you! Yes, I love the food and all that French feel to it. And I also liked the idea of a rat that can cook, just opens a lot of possibilities for me. Haha 😅

      Wow that’s amazing to know! I don’t know why I have a feeling that farmers can do it lol. I wish I can teach myself to do that. 😂😂
