Hello loves, and happy summer, everyone! I am officially on summer break *screams*, so I am really excited to be able to post more consistently and spend more time here in the blogosphere 🙂
I was nominated for the Liebster Award and Awesome Blogger Award by Anna @ Anna Pastelle awhile ago. She’s a great blogger, and her blog aesthetic never fails to impress 🙂 Be sure to head over and show some love!
Before I start, I’m so sorry about my unexpected disappearance from the blogosphere for the past week or so. I have been really busy trying to sort and figure out things. I really don’t like being irresponsible, so I apologize 😅 Now that summer is here, I hope that I’ll be able to go back to my blogging schedule and be more present in the blogosphere 🙂

q u e s t i o n s
+ What haircut do you have?
I currently have it grown out long to about my shoulder blades. I’m going to cut a bit soon because I’m going to visit my family halfway across the world in 2,3 weeks, and where they live… is so HOT. Aka 38 degrees Celsius.
+ What is your favorite animal?
Sheep!! Baby sheep!! Lambs!!
+ What reminds you of home?
My family ❤
+ Do you like carnival rides? If so, what’s your favorite?
Oh dear NOPE. I know many would want to hit me with a pillow right now, but honestly, I do NOT like rides. Carnival rides, amusement park rides, anything. I can go on the train thingy tho!!
which is like what, for toddlers
+ Do you go to summer camp?
+ Pencils or pens?
Pens!! Specifically, ink/gel pens. They are like, everything. I use them for taking notes, doing homework, calligraphy, bullet journal… and gosh they are aesthetic?! *fangirls*
+ What does your go-to outfit look like?
I’m just a simpleton – I’m always in black leggings, a plain t-shirt, and a hoodie. Nothing fancy, but it’s cozy and what makes me “me” 🙂
+ Do you like musicals or no?
I’ve actually never been to a musical except the ones outside of my school – they’re okay for me. I’m not a huge fan, but I definitely don’t hate it 🙂 It’s quite fun sometimes though!
+ Which is worse, spiders or snakes?
SPIDERS. Spiders spiders spiders. Even to this day, whenever I see one, I always 1) scream, then 2) call my mom downstairs to save me. My cousins actually have snakes as pets!! The older one is majoring in forest/wildlife in University, so he’s really familiar with all that stuff. The one he has is actually pretty cute!
+ Football or Baseball?
Neither, to be honest. I know, I know, but fun fact: I don’t watch ANY football, meaning I don’t watch Super Bowl?? So… I’ll have to go with baseball, I guess…
me basically whenever I have to make a decision
+ Walmart or Target?
We don’t have Target where we live, so it’ll have to be Walmart 🙂
r a n d o m f a c t s
+ I have been doing Invisalign for almost 3 years now!
+ I don’t like Nutella *the world gasps*
+ I have never broken a bone before, but I get a new bruise almost every single day
+ I’d love to go to Iceland, Russia, and Japan one day
+ I have a Goodreads account! As a fellow bookworm, I’m glad to say that it has come to my rescue various times.
+ I am a flexibility enthusiast!! I have a set stretching routine, and I practice gymnastics daily. Anna McNulty and Georgia Allerdice are my main inspirations ❤
+ I am an alto in choir 🙂
+ When I was a smol potato, I was scared of the “I’m Feeling Good” button on the Google search bar page because I thought that it I clicked into it, scary things would happen. If only I knew back then that it was Google Doodles…
+ I don’t like shopping for clothes, and especially trying them on in the fitting rooms – it makes me extremely uncomfortable
+ Also about shopping – my favourite place to shop is the grocery store
+ Within my family’s family friends, I’m the only girl

q u e s t i o n s
+ Dogs or cats?
Cats! A while ago, I’m quite sure I mentioned that I volunteered at a local cat sanctuary. Sadly due to schedule changes, I had to stop a few months ago – even though I could visit there, I was busy with school and other stuff. Since that summer is here *screams again*, I hope that there will be more opportunities for me to go back and visit my furry friends (omg I’m too cheesy)
+ Do you prefer plane-trips or car-trips?
I honestly am okay with both, but probably car-trips?! Every year when I go back to visit my family, the flight are always around 9 – 12 hours, so I’m quite used to flying. I’m extremely blessed and lucky to be able to fly so often 🙂 Car-trips though… they’re shorter, and I don’t have to stay quiet aka I am noisy when with family.
Introverts: is it relatable? 😉
+ What is your favorite movie?
Oh my GOODNESS, this has got to be one of the hardest questions ever!! Since I am an indecisive potato, The Greatest Showman (<3), Coco, My Neighbour Totoro, and ALL of Detective Conan movies 😂 Oh dear, that’s what – 25 movies in total?!
+ How long have you been blogging?
About a year and a third – I celebrated my first blogiversary this February! I started my blog on February 25th, 2017, in case you were interested.
+ What is your favorite song?
Ugh if you’ve been a reader for awhile, you’d know it: Kimi e no Uso by Valshe!! I said it once, said it twice, and I’m going to say it for the millionth time – if there was such a thing as “song soul mate”, this would be it 😂
+ What is your favorite sport to watch?
Gymnastics and rhythmic gymnastics
+ What is your favorite sport to play?
Gymnastics!! I don’t know if it counts, but I’m also a flexibility enthusiast…
+ Do you have any animals? If so, what kind?
No, I don’t actually. Even though this isn’t part of the question, I’d love to have a lamb or a cat someday.
+ What is the strangest food you’ve ever eaten?
Hmm… there’s this dish called “stinky tofu”? It’s not actually “stinky”, but it’s called that name because it’s fermented, like cheese. It’s not my favourite, but it’s okay!
+ Do you prefer light or dark colors?
Light colours – especially pastel #aesthetic
