I'll be doing Nicole's questions first:
What is your favorite quote, and why?
Gah--this is a hard one! But if I had to pick one quote, it would be "She believed she could so she did." My first writing mentor gave me a bracelet with the quote engraved on it, because she said it reminded her of me, so whenever I'm in need of a little motivation/inspiration boost--it's the first quote that comes to mind.
What's your dream career?
My dream career would be to become a children's author. (In case you didn't see my header, "Scribbles of an Aspiring Author.")
How do you want to change the world?
What song do you really relate to, and why?
Most of the songs that I like to listen to are fast-paced, and usually from some movie soundtrack that narrates a ton of super cool action-y scenes. I however, can barely survive PE class, so, it's safe to say I don't relate to many of my playlists. :P
That being said, if I had to pick one song I can relate to, it would be "Best Day of My Life," by American Authors.
What is one of your biggest pet peeves?
This might be kind of a weird one--but I absolutely cannot stand when someone doesn't close doors the whole way.
How do you want your life to change, or are you fine with where you are right now?
I'm pretty content with where I am now--but I'd obviously like to be published at some point in the future.
Being able to understand Biology would also be pretty nice, too. :P
What was the moment that made you decide to write?
Honestly? I'm not really sure. I've found stories scribbled in journals of mine dating back to when I was seven or eight years old. However, the first time I ever wrote a book with the intend of publishing it one day, was in the fifth grade. Needless to say--it was pretty bad, and it will never be seeing the light of day.
What is the biggest dream you have in life?
How do you react to stressful situations?
Usually with a lot of panicking--and chocolate. Lots of chocolate.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
Being able to shape-shift--that way, I could finally know what it would be like to be a dragon.
Do you have any big goals for 2018/2019, and what are they?
This year, I'm looking to finish the third draft of my WIP. I was trying to write it for NaNo this year--but life got in the way (in a good way!) and I'm falling *way* behind on my word-count. I'm still going to try and write as much as I can this November--but I've pretty much given up on finishing it this month. :P
And now onto Ann's questions:
Are you a vegetarian?
No--I like sushi too much to commit to that. :P
Do you keep a diary?
I do, actually. I've been keeping one for about a year now, and it's fun to look back at the things that seemed big and scary to me a year ago, that I have since survived (obviously).
Kebab or burger
Probably a kebab. Don't get me wrong--I love burgers--but kebabs are just more fun to make, in my opinion.
Are you a Night Owl or an Early Bird?
Where did you meet your best friend?
In my second grade teacher's classroom, after she moved our seats next to each other. Poor her--she had to deal with our shenanigans all marking period. ;)
Describe your best friend in three words.
What was the last movie you watched?
How many times have you been abroad, and what countries have you visited?
I've been abroad six times now. I've visited Denmark, Italy, Dubai, Uganda, and I've been to Costa Rico twice. (Although one of those times, I was too young to remember, so I don't really count it.)
What do you think about learning dead languages?
Facebook, Messenger, or Instagram?
Do you have a favorite actor or actress?
Yes--my favorite actress is Emma Watson, and my favorite actor is a tie between Chris Colfer and Benedict Cumberbatch.
And now for *my* questions:
-What is your favorite memory, and why?
-What book changed your life the most?
-Who inspires you?
-What would you say your spirit animal is, and why?
-Do you have a nervous habit--and if so, what is it?
-What book character do you relate to most?
-If you could meet one person--alive, or dead--who would it be?
-When it comes to writing, are you a plotter or a pantser?
-What is your favorite color?
-Do you have any strategies to help you overcome Writer's Block?
-Are you an extrovert, or an introvert?
And as for tagging, um . . . most of the bloggers who I keep up with have already done this tag--so I guess that if you want to do this tag--go ahead--steal it! Consider yourself tagged.
So--have you done this tag already? If so, was there a favorite question that you answered?
