Hey there my lovelies!
I was tagged for this by Sha & Mandy @ Book Princess Reviews and I’m glad they thought of me. They have an amazing blog and I’m always honored when they decide to tag me. 😀 If you don’t know their site yet you really have to check it out! XD (I’ll never get tired of saying this. *lol*)
name a cartoon character that you love
I’m not really the cartoon kinda person but I always loved animes and I adore „Yuri on Ice“! I swear I watched this series about a thousand times and Victor and Yuri are the best thing ever! ❤
what is your favourite song right now?
Ohh that’s a tough one! I love music so to choose only one song is kinda cruel. XD It’s Christmas time though so I’ll go with a Christmas song here: „Shakin‘ Stevens – Merry Christmas Everyone“. I swear that song always causes me to dance Jive in my flat! *lol*
what could you do for hours (that isn’t reading)?
Definitely blogging and writing. I swear I could sit in front of my computer and write for ages. It doesn’t matter if it are blog posts, roleplay posts, poems or reviews. I just love to write. 😀 I have so many thoughts and ideas I want to get down on paper but unfortunately I don’t have all too much time to do it. >_<
what is something you love to do that your followers would be surprised by?
Mhmm I dunno. Is there anything that would still surprise you? *lol* I think you all know that I’m a very musical person and that I love to bake and cook. I just spent an entire afternoon in my kitchen dancing to songs that played on the radio while I made Christmas cookies, but I don’t think that’s a surprise. XD
what is your favourite unnecessarily specific thing to learn about?
Useless knowledge? *lol* I have a weakness for things like that. I mean who else knows that a little fly which was found in the Amazon rainforest was named after Arnold Schwarzenegger and is called: „Megapropodiphora arnoldi“? And did you know that Empress Elisabeth from Austria also known as Sissy had a tattoo? (For the curious among you: It was an anchor on her shoulder 😉 ) I could probably go on and on with this. I swear I have so much useless knowledge I could fill an entire book. Unfortunately a lot of people already did that so *lol* I’m not going to be a writer soon. XD
what is something unusual you know how to do?
Define unusual. Mhmm okay I think this is kinda unusual: I know how to fold a paper three times so that it fits perfectly into an envelope. Whenever my hubby needs to send a letter he comes to me and asks me to do it. By now I only use my visual judgment. *lol* Guess that’s what you get when you have to fold about a thousand letters for a bulk mailing. (Apparently my first job had it’s use after all. XD)
name something you’ve made in the last year (and show us if you can)
The aforementioned Christmas cookies and the birthday cake of my little one! *lol* And yes, I think I’ll induldge you with pictures. 😛 The quality of them is bad though because they were taken with my super old phone. Are you ready? Et voila:
what is your most recent personal project?
To be healthy again!! I’ve been ill so often this year and I’m really trying my best to strengthen my immune system. This definitely counts as a personal project. XD
tell us something you think about often (maybe while staring out of windows)
Okay this might get a little bit philosophical but I think a lot about the world we’re living in and how I am supposed to raise my child in it. I see the trend towards egoism and that a lot of people get what they want just because they are loud and assertive and I can’t help but wonder how my little one fits into it. I want her to be compassionate, honest and open-minded but I’m really afraid that those are characteristics that won’t get her far on the long run. How are you supposed to swim in the ocean of life if you’re the only one who cares for the feelings of others? Maybe my job caused me to be embittered but I see this world and its relentless and ugly parts every single day and it breaks my heart how little those who have everything care about the people that are not so fortunate. I can only speak for myself but my parents raised me to be a righteous and compassionate person and no matter how thankful I am for their education and their values I have to admit that I never had it easy. And *lol* damn this got really philosophical here! Sorry! >_<
give us something that’s your favourite, but make it oddly specific
Lying down on my sofa (after a long and cold day) with a good book when the little one is finally in bed and getting all sleepy while I read. So sleepy that my eyes close and I startle out of my sleep because the book fell on my nose. *lol*
say the first thing that pops into your head
I’m already done?
