Q90: Can you knit or crochet?

That’s all for this tag.

I’ll meet ya tomorrow with an update! (Shh..it’s a secret!)

 

Get to Know the Blogger: 100 Questions No One Ever Asks Tag

And here I am in the brand new year telling you about myself- a) even when you never asked for it in the first place and b) I love some self-promotion. I saw this tag on Chocolatesnwafflesblog and here’s a link to it. 

So let’s get started!

  1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed? I am not someone with OCD but really who sleeps with their closet doors open? I will never do that. And also after watching Conjuring, I bet anyone would do that.
  2. Do you take the shampoo or conditioner bottles from hotels? Yes! Shamelessly yes! Because they are too good to let go and when we pay for the room we pay for them, right? (I’m probably trying to convince you that I am NOT A STEALER and this is not a sin in case you wanted to try it out!)
  3. Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in? I sleep without tucking them in because I feel trapped and not at all comfortable. And I need to keep my one foot out of the sheets (weird habit).
  4. Have you ever stolen a street sign before? Not really interested in stealing street signs.
  5. Do you like to use post-it notes? I do like them but I don’t use them. That often.
  6. Do you cut out coupons but never use them? No.
  7. Would you rather be attacked by a bear or bees? Attacked by a bear. I think I may have a little chance to outrun the bear but the bees, oh no no, THEY ARE DEADLY!bear-attack
  8. Do you have freckles? No
  9. Do you always smile for pictures?  Well most of the time. I don’t want to look back at my pictures with me not smiling and just sulking around. I did that a lot when I was little. Sometimes I wouldn’t even remember I had to smile when someone takes a picture and then I look like someone scolded me just a second before running and taking my picture.. And I quote “Sometimes, it depends on who is behind the camera. Smile or not, I always look bad on pictures, so I avoid them as much as possible.” So true.                                                                             fake-smile
  10. What is your biggest pet peeve?  That I dislike people who are rude. There is enough unhappiness in this world and I don’t want anyone to be more unhappy than that. Also I don’t really like people who seem disinterested in a conversation. Like if you aren’t interested just sit in a room and lock yourself instead of listening to someone you aren’t even listening in the first place!? *rant over*angry-for-rude-people
  11. Do you ever count your steps when you walk? No I don’t. But it happens sometimes that unconsciously I count them.
  12. Have you ever peed in the woods?  Actually I have.
  13. What about pooped in the woods?   I don’t think so.
  14. Do you ever dance when there is no music playing?  Yeah sometimes (when no one’s watching) I usually know the song in my head and when I feel too bored to plug in the earphones, I dance without it. And I read a quote somewhere that goes something like this “And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who couldn’t hear the music.”                                  giphy
  15. Do you chew your pens and pencils?  Unconsciously yes, sometimes. But I stop when someone scolds me for it.
  16. How many people have you slept with? Just myself.
  17. What size is your bed? Medium, I think. I don’t know the bed sizes but I seem to fit so it’s good.
  18. What is your song of the week? If ain’t love by Jason Durulo.
  19. Is it okay for guys to wear pink? Yeah, it’s okay. I won’t ever judge a guy based on the COLOR he wears. I could judge him by his clothes no the exact color. 
  20. Do you still watch cartoons? YEAH! Cartoons are fun and cool and I will never be ashamed of watching cartoons!
  21. What’s your least favorite movie? I really have to think about it. And after thinking I’d say Girl Next Door. I tried watching it several times but the whole concept is too weird for me and the actors also seem like they don’t know how to act properly. (No offence!)
  22. Where would you bury hidden treasure if you had any? I’d spend a little and bury the rest in a SECRET SPOT. You thought I was going to tell you?
  23. What do you drink with dinner? And sometimes cold drink, when my family’s mood is good.
  24. What do you dip a chicken nugget in? Tomato sauce!
  25. What is your favorite food?  PIZZA!!!                      pizza
  26. What movies could you watch over and over again and still love?  There is probably a whole list containing a hundred movies and some of them are – any Marvel movie, Made of Honor, Eat Pray Love, Jurassic World, any Chris Evans’, Chris Pratt’s, or Chris Pines’s movie
  27. Last person you kissed/kissed you? I haven’t kissed anyone from months! I have been staying home or studying to see any cute babies!
  28. Were you ever a boy/girl scout?  Not that I wasn’t interested, but the boy/girl scout thing isn’t very popular here. (here = India)
  29. Would you ever strip or pose naked in a magazine? No way! They want to showcase my talent? Fine! I’d never do anything that doesn’t feel good to me.
  30. When was the last time you wrote a letter on paper? In March 2016, I decided to write a handwritten letter to the people that were very close to me in school and give them that as a token of my love and remembrance. So yeah that’s the thing. And another letter I wrote to myself so that I would open it and read it again after 1 year. A letter to my future self.
  31. Can you change the oil on a car? I really don’t go near a car because I always feel I’ll have an accident when I’ll try to drive it and probably damage the car. It is just stuck in my head. I mean I go near a car when I have to sit in it but I don’t drive and so that is a thing I don’t know.
  32. Ever got a speeding ticket? Not even when I drive a two-wheeler.
  33. Ever ran out of gas? Not out of gas but once I was on my two-wheeler and I was supposed to reach somewhere and I knew I was 5 minutes late and then suddenly I felt the accelerator loosen in my grip and the vehicle stopped working. And it was the first time that something like this happened to me and I was in the middle of the road, probably on the verge of crying but then I walked to the place I wanted to go and then came back later for my two-wheeler.
  34. Favorite kind of sandwich?  CHEESE SANDWICH! Anything with cheese in it. cheese
  35. Best thing to eat for breakfast? Bread and omelette. I was not a big fan of it some time back but then one day I was eating it with some cheese and tomato sauce and I saw this brilliant white light from above and I have loved it ever since. Well, it may or may not have happened that dramatically.
  36. What is your usual bedtime?  I usually got to sleep at 11 pm, and sleep comes to me at 12. And I try to wake up before 8am.
  37. Are you lazy? I AM! And often I procrastinate so much that I don’t get any work done till the last day!
  38. When you were a kid, what did you dress up as for Halloween?  We don’t really celebrate Halloween here.
  39. What is your Chinese astrological sign? I just checked. Mine is an OX. Not very pleasing. But it means I am – Loyal, reliable, thorough, strong, reasonable, steady, determined.
  40. How many languages can you speak? My first language is Marathi (a language spoken in Inida), Hindi (another language spoken here), English, a little bit of French I learnt in school.
  41. Do you have any magazine subscriptions? Unfortunately no. I can read all the magazines for free on my mobile.
  42. Which are better, LEGOs or Lincoln logs? I don’t know what Lincoln Logs are. So LEGO…
  43. Are you stubborn? Yes I am. In matters where I think I am right and I don’t hurt anyone.
  44. Which is better Leno or Letterman? I don’t know what they are.
  45. Ever watch soap operas? My mother watches and so I have to.
  46. Are you afraid of heights? No
  47. Do you sing in the car? I sing when there is no one to hear me because I’m a terrible singer to the point where you might faint hearing me singing. Don’t say I never warned you!
  48. Do you sing in the shower? Sometimes.
  49. Do you ever dance in the car? I dance and sing together.dance
  50. Ever used a gun? Fake gun? Yeah. Real gun? Are you kidding? Also if you’d like to read the remaining 50 questions, you’ll have to wait.

This or That Tag

Hey!

I’m back with a tag! It’s This or That tag! Living in the pages nominated me. A big thanks to you!

download

  1. Reading in the couch or the bed?

The bed. And I don’t think I ever will sit and read on the couch. It just seems (and feels, of course!) kind of uncomfortable to me.

  1. Male main character or main female character?

Seriously, I don’t care. I mean it doesn’t matter to me if the main character is a male or a female but what matters is the story and writing. But for some people the way that males and females think matter, but I don’t think that way.

 3. Sweet snacks or salty snacks while reading?

I’d say both if I’m super careful while doing something at a 3-metre distance from my beloved books. I don’t want oil blotches and food marks on my books when I read them to remind me what I ate that day! But I’d say both are okay and it depends mainly on my mood that day.

  1. Trilogies or quartets?

Anything! I’m nor fussy about books. Not at all. I would love trilogies and quartets or even 15 books a series (that’s too unrealistic, but if you’re an author and reading this, you could definitely try this!). But I’m a little disappointed though with standalones because they’re like a single book and if I like the book I want something more of it. So basically I love anything and everything.

  1. First-person point of view or third person point of view?

I’ll again say both. But now when I thought about it, I favor 1st person viewpoints. They just click. If you know what I mean! And I could imagine being the character and know what they are thinking. It’s just fun going into another person’s brain (though I know I sounded a little bit of creepy when I said that!)

  1. Reading at night or in the morning?

Whenever I feel like. I can read at day or night or evening or at dawn! But I prefer the night because that’s when I finish my studies and get some free time and probably because I’m a night person (yeah, like an owl) so that’s the time I’m more active.

  1. Libraries or bookstores?

Ummm…depends. If I have money, then bookstore. If not, then a library. Simple!

  1. Books that make you laugh or ones that make you cry?

Both! I love to laugh and cry (possibly not at the same time).

  1. Black book covers or white book covers?

Both! Who cares about the cover when you get a book to read? Everyone basically? But really if I had to select any one from black or white I would choose neither and be happy with both of them.

10. Character driven or plot driven?

Character, I think. Because even if the story is not good, I can probably make do with the characters. They matter a lot for me because they are the one thing that can make or break a book for me, personally.

Book Fangirling Blog Award

Thank you Heartviapages for nominating me!

I have at least 5 tags and awards pending and I’ll start for this today.

book-fangirling-award

RULES-

  1. Thank the blogger that nominated you.
  2. Answer the questions they set for you.
  3. Set some new questions.
  4. Nominate five new bloggers.

 

HEARTVIAPAGES’S QUESTIONS:-

  1. Name a book character who truly agitated you and almost drove you to the point of jumping inside the story and personally strangling him/her.

Hahaha..I basically come across many such characters. And one of them is Teresa of The Scorch Trials. If you read the book, I’m sure you’ll understand why I wanted to strangle her and then shoot her with a sniper (Ouch!). I detested her almost for the whole book. (NO S-P-O-I-L-E-R-S!)

  1. If you can live in a book story for a day, where will you go and why?

Can I just say Hogwarts? But I’ll not say Hogwarts because same ol’ answer not allowed! Instead I’ll say Twilight setting maybe. It was a nice town and over the mountains, all surrounded by werewolves and vampires.

  1. Name your go-to authors and the reason why.

My go to authors would be Enid Blyton, J. K. Rowling, Stephen King and Jane Austen.

  1. Reading VS Eating VS Music: Can you do all three simultaneously or do you find it hard to concentrate on one while doing the others at the same time?

I can eat while I read and eat while I listen to music but I can’t combine music and reading. Why you ask? That’s because my brain can’t process reading words and listening words and one day it’ll jumble everything up. But I don’t listen to instrumental music also. It just comes into my reading.

  1. Thank an author or a story which influenced you or helped you at some point in your life.

I would like to thank Enid Blyton because when I was about 12 years old I read The Famous Five series and I got lost into the world of 4 teenagers and a dog and their adventures. I would imagine me being a part of their group and solving everyone’s problems. So I’d thank her!

 

I don’t know who have done this tag, but I’ll nominate all of you!

 

Weekly Recollection #1

Hello everyone!1460879764789

I’m introducing this new weekly update!

It’s called Weekly Recollection where I’ll recollect the tasks and posts of the week and provide a link if you missed any of them.

Let’s start by me telling you how I started to write a novel. It’s my first try and I am very determined to finish writing it before June. I can’t tell about it a lot just because I’m not an organised person and hence I have to develop the story as I write and so it’s still developing. But I can tell it’s about a kind of zombie apocalypse and something added to it. I don’t know because I just started writing it but I’ll do a post about the whole of it once I reach a safe place.

And I posted five posts this week and here they are if you missed them-

  1. Why haven’t I written a novel yet?
  2. Short story #2- Bully
  3. Wednesday Quote-day #10
  4. Friday Art #7 -Realistic Painting
  5. Eloquent English #11 – Insure, Assure and Ensure

That’s all for this week and I’ll see you tomorrow with an awesome tag!

And I’m accepting that I’ve a ton of other awards and tags but I being a moody girl choose this tag. I’m sorry guys to whoever nominated me. I haven’t forgotten you all.

RULES-
❤️ Write down the names of characters from different books – I used characters from Harry Potter, Twilight, The Hunger Games, Pride & Prejudice, Divergent, The Fault in our Stars, The Notebook and The Maze Runner. Write them down on scraps of paper.
❤️ You can use as many characters as you’d like – I chose 10 boys and 10 girls, which will give me 10 couples at the end.
❤️ Place these names in a container of your choosing – I split my names and placed them in two different containers.
❤️ Take out two names at a time and decide whether you would ship the couple, or if you wish for them to die I peaceful/slow death.

Let’s see who are my female contenders-
Teresa (The Maze Runner)
Allie Hamilton (The Notebook)
Tris Prior (Divergent)
Hermione Granger (Harry Potter)
Bella Swan (Twilight)
Renesmee (Twilight)
Dolores Umbridge (Harry Potter)
Elizabeth Bennet (Pride & Prejudice)
Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games)
Hazel Lancaster (The fault in our stars)

And boys..
Ron Weasley (Harry Potter)
Harry Potter (Harry Potter)
Lord Voldemort (Harry Potter)
Jacob Black (Twilight)
Edward Cullen (Twilight)
Fitzwilliam Darcy (Pride & Prejudice)
Augustus Waters (The fault in our stars)
Peeta Mellark (The Hunger Games)
Minho (The Maze Runner)
Thomas (The Maze Runner)

Hehe…let’s start.

ROUND 1

Thomas (The Maze Runner)
                      &
   Dolores Umbridge (Harry Potter)

Am I only feeling weird or you too? This couple is just weird. One was trapped and has a good heart whereas the other one literally trapped children!!! God, they’ll be bad together. Very bad.
Nope. I can never ship them.

ROUND 2

Harry Potter (Harry Potter)
                      &
   Hazel Lancester (The fault in our    stars)

I think this pair can be good. I mean I don’t know if Harry will be comfortable with Hazel’s situation but they’ll be cute together. And maybe Harry can teach her some magic and who knows maybe cure her!

ROUND 3

Augustus Waters (The fault in our stars)
                         &
         Teresa (The Maze Runner)

This can work or not..? I can’t decide this. Teresa is so quiet but yet adventurous and Augustus is such a sweetheart and he’ll make her laugh. But yeah, they can be together because Teresa has been through a lot and Augustus can make her start new.

ROUND 4

Mr.Filtwilliam Darcy (Pride &  Prejudice)
                        &
     Allie Hamilton (The Notebook)

Okay this one’s a little out of the tine frame. But if they existed together, I really don’t know how will they manage. Like Mr. Darcy is like a an arrogant person and Allie is so outspoken. So I can’t see that working.
*Truth be told, I can’t see Mr. Darcy with anyone else than Elizabeth.*

ROUND 5

Edward Cullen (Twilight)
                        &
      Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games)

They maybe can be together. Strong and badass Katniss will have a mind-reading strong snow white vampire. And they can maje an okay couple and I see Katniss using her trademark bow and arrow and Edward his super speed when they fight. ;P I partly ship this.
*Yes I find the fact that he turns white in sunlight very funny.*

ROUND 6

Jacob Black (Twilight)
                       &
           Bella Swan (Twilight)

Oh my godd…!! I’m absolutely Team Jacob and I taught it was so stupid of Bella to choose Edward over Jacob! But anyway it was a story. No but felt bad about him. And now they get to be together… I so ship this!

ROUND 7

Minho (The Maze Runner)
                       &
      Elizabeth Bennet (Pride & Prejudice)

I think no. But Minho is such a great character, always making everyone laugh and gets everyone irritated. But Elizabeth is too quick-witted.
But no..
*Please refer to the note after Round 4*

ROUND 8

Lord Voldemort (Harry Potter)
                       &
     Hermione Granger (Harry Potter)

Just let me laugh out my heart first! Haha…what a weird pair. This is the weirdest of them all. Hermione will just punch Voldemort like she punched Draco Malfoy. Remember?

ROUND 9

Peeta Mellark (The Hunger Games)
                        &
        Tris Prior (Divergent)

I can ship for this. I mean they bith come from a world that’s fainlty relatable. And Tris is somewhat similar to Katniss. So I think they can survive.

ROUND 10

     

Ron Weasley (Harry Potter)
                         &
        Renesmee (Twilight)

Haha..another weird pair..! But they can be together..if Ron doesn’t get scared by half-vampires which I’m sure he does!
But still they’ll look cute together.

That’s all for today. I’ve been really absent on posting anything and still slowly my followers are increasing. Thanks to you all and I’m sure I’ll make it up to you after just one and a half months.
I’ll give this blog a new and fresh start by deleting some memes which I can’t do anymore. I’ve planned a lot of things but I just need your patience. Thanks a lot!,!
Happy Reading!

TONS OF AWARDS AND TAGS!

THE ANIMAL SPIRIT AWARD
Thank you Ayele for tagging me for this tag!

The rules:
1.Write a short paragraph about yourself and what your blog means to you
2. If you could be any animal, what would you be?
3. Pick ten nominees.

I started my blog in September 2015 and it’s going to complete 6 months in February. I’ve never been the person to do what I started. Once I made a diary and then slowly forgot to write. These little things did irritate me and this is pretty much the most important thing that I continued. And I’m happy about how it turned out to be and seriously I’ve gained so much knowledge and made so many blogger friends.
If I were to be an animal, I would choose a dog. I don’t know why but I feel I’m a loyal person to my friends and I’m equally protective of them. I tend to fight others for my friends and I often get hurt because of this.

BOOK BLOGGER TEST
I ws not tagged for this but I found it on Katherinesbookcase interesting (and I decided to over-burden myself with toms of tags and awards. So that’s why.)

What are your top three book pet hates?
I hate it when:-
1) People dog-ear books.
2) People don’t return the books and I’ve to literally beg them and ask them- ” please give that book. I would’ve not asked but my friend *insert any imaginary name here* is asking for it too.” I hate to do this but sometimes people don’t return the book for months. -_-
3) when people underline in my book and THE FREAKING LINE ISN’T EVEN STRAIGHT!! Like if you want to underline in my book, please make sure the line looks okay not like some 4-year old kid drew it.
Like I lent my copy of The Alchemist and look what my friend did.
