Tag: 20 Things You Might Not Know About Me...

Thank you Tanya at Keep Turning Pages for tagging me in this post.
The idea is fairly simple- answer the questions, tag people, etc. I have been so busy with school that I promised her I would get this done this weekend. Let's get started with the questions..

1. How tall are you?

I tower over all of my friends at an astonishing 5' even. If I was two inches shorter, I would be qualified as a midget. But hey, some of the best things come in small packages. (:

2. Do you have a hidden talent?

I do have a fairly awesome hidden talent. I can dance with a hula hoop. Throw it up in the air, do crazy awesome tricks with it, light it on fire and poi hoop. I am rather addicted to hooping, and own eight different ones, even one that has LEDs and lights up at night.

3. What's your biggest blog related peeve?

Spelling and grammar errors make me want to stab myself in the eyes. It physically hurts me. So please proofread. It is imperative to my health. (:

4. What's your biggest non blog related pet peeve?

Oh, this is easy. Ten page research papers assigned a week before they are due, about Aristotle and his philosophical thoughts. Are you kidding me Professor? I know he was an amazing dude in his day, I really do. But he was alive in 300 BC Greece, where his ideas probably really did have merit, not 2014 America. Not to mention that it needs to be sited in Thebian, instead of what EVERYONE else on the planet uses.. MLA. Ugh. So yea, there goes my weekend! LOL (:

5. What's your favorite song?

I really love Nahko & Medicine for the People's Manifesto or Make a Change or Wash it Away. Actually, all their songs are really wonderful. Nahko is my future husband, for real.

6. What's your favorite Etsy shop that isn't yours?

Hoop Mamas or Katwise

7. What's your favorite way to spend your free time when you're alone?

No question, reading, reading, did I mention reading? When classes are in session, it's usually a text book or notes that I read, but reading for pleasure is one of my favorite activities on earth. (:

8. What's your favorite junk food?

Fried zucchini. OMG.. there is nothing on the planet that is as delicious as fried zucchini. It has to be homemade by me though, that frozen crap in restaurants is disgusting!

9. Do you have pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?

I grew up with pigs, chickens, dogs, cats.. now that I'm in college, I do not have any pets of my own. My dog still lives with my mom though. He is a Saint Bernard named Ruckus.

10. What are your favorite fiction and non-fiction books?

This is a loaded question. There is no way I can pick just one. How about top five favorite fiction books? Dan Brown - Angels and Demons, Anne Rice - Memnoch the Devil, Jennifer Armentrout - Lux 5 - Opposition, all 7 of the Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne, aaaaand any of the three Fae Chronicles books out so far by Amelia Hutchins. That was really harder than it should be!

As for non-fiction, I really don't have a favorite. I read so many text books for school, I can't enjoy them anymore lol

11. What's your favorite beauty product?

I like smelly good stuff. There is this essential oil that I've bought online since I was 13. It's called Egyptian Goddess and I really could not live without it. If I don't wear it, my friends all tell me that I seem different.

12. When were you last embarrassed?

Yesterday in Western Civ class when my professor asked me what the moral behind Oedipus the King was and I obviously was texting someone. I managed to answer with, 'don't listen to the gods, they were all psychos...' while the entire class laughed. Totally embarrassing, but very true. (:

13. If you could drink one beverage for the rest of your life, besides water, what would it be?

Coffee. Or Red Bull. Really, anything with caffeine that keeps my mind awake while reading philosophy is good for me.

14. What's your favorite movie?

I am really horrible at watching movies. I fall asleep almost instantly. Same with TV shows. I guess the last movie that didn't put me to sleep was The Longest Yard with Adam Sandler. As long as it has a male character that can make me laugh, I'll probably enjoy it.

15. What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?

I pretty much got along with everyone. I'm pretty laid back and friendly, and can talk to anyone with a brain comfortably (:

16. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

Ireland. I hate the sun and the heat, and I love the rain. I am mostly Irish, and even though I have never been there, my body still knows that the sun is evil.

17. PC or Mac?

Although I would love to have a Macbook, my PC works just fine and I'm poor! (:

18. Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, BF/GF?

Guys flirt with me all the time, but I'm way too busy for a commitment right now. A cute guy got me a beer at a party last weekend? lol

19. Favorite celebrity?

Well, like I said.. I'm awful at watching TV and movies so I really don't know many celebrities. I like Adam Sandler, and Josh Harrison from the Pittsburgh Pirates. I live under a rock.. don't mind me.. (:

20. What blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?

LOL Well, there are a handful of blogs that I read consistently. I definitely enjoy Tanya's Keep Turning Pages, Maria at A Night's Dream of Books, and Melissa at Melissa Reads Books. Any other blogger who wants to tag themselves in this, feel free! Leave me a comment so that I can read your answers. (:


  1. I literally find your answers hilarious! The bit about how proofreading is imperative to your health and how you can comfortably have a conversation with anyone who has a brain hahah!! I feel these exact same ways!
    Also I LOVE the thing that happened in your lecture hall - I'm moving out of home today and starting university (so nervous!) but I'm just imagining how funny it would be if someone did that in my lecture. I'm taking a module in classical studies even though I'm taking English and American Literature so I imagine that somebody will get asked a question on the Gods haha.
    Thank you for answering these Morrighan, it was a great read :) !

    1. LOL Thank you Tanya! Good luck with university, and I hope you have a blast. I know that I don't have as much time to read for pleasure, or post reviews with classes in session, but I do really love school and being away from home. It's a lot of stress, responsibility, and fun wrapped up in the same package. I'm also an English major, but I loathe philosophy with the fire of a thousand suns (:

  2. Lol, your answers were so so funny! Are you actually studying philosophy? If you are, oh my you impresse me! It's was one of my least favorite subject in high school (math comes first), lol. I can't be mad at people who make spelling and grammatical mistakes, cause I'm one of these person, unfortunately *sobs*

    By the way, who wouldn't love a Macbook? But who has the money to afford it? Not many people (including me and apparently you as well, lol)!

    1. haha thank you Carla! I am absolutely not studying philosophy. I am an English major, and this paper was for a HISTORY class! Ugh! I did finish it though, and Aristotle was actually really revolutionary for Classical Age Greece. Although hard to follow. I found myself rereading sentences numerous times to even semi grasp the meanings! Thank you for your comment lady <3
