I was tagged by the beautiful @lovecocotutu
Rule 1: Always post the rules.
Rule 2: Answer the questions the person who tagged you has written and write 11 new ones. (haha, but I'm not creative enough at the moment to invent new ones... so just follow the questions I asked.)
Rule 3: Tag 11 new people
1) What's your favorite book?
How on earth am I supposed to choose? This is why it takes so long for me to do quiz tag thingys... I can never answer the first question.
I just finished Insurgent, which was pretty amazing. I still have a middle-schooler's attachment to Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series (shh, don't tell anyone). And I really like the Hunger Games, although that makes me sound just like every other teen girl in the history of the world.
I legitimately love the Chronicles of Narnia.
I actually really like children's books that are written well... I think it's harder to write a good preteen book than it is to write YA sometimes. So I like Heartbeat and Bridge to Terabithia too.
Right now my favorite book is Bloomability, just because, well, she goes to Switzerland. :)
But really, it changes all the time.
2) What's your favorite fashion trend of the moment?
I actually don't follow trends all that much... I do like the stripes that appear to be everywhere and the monochrome palettes.
Also, neon and white paired together is so refreshing. That is one thing that I would definitely wear constantly.
3) What do you want to be when you grow up / see yourself doing?
I have absolutely no idea.
4) What makes you unique?
This is a hard question. I think my general outlook on life is different than other people I know... in general I have a contented existence. I really don't think my life is the worst it could possibly be. I like almost everyone I meet, and I enjoy connecting different people.
I care a lot about what people think, but I try not to let it affect me. I'm a really thoughtful person. I think hard about basically everything and I enjoy asking questions. At the same time, I do a lot of things that could be constituted as immature (one of my best friends and I enjoy dancing down her street and turning cartwheels, haha...) but it's more because I want to enjoy life while I'm still young enough for it to be okay. Does that make sense?
5) What's one regret you have about your childhood? (for example, I really wish I had learned to ski when I was younger)
I wish I'd learned to play a musical instrument. I've taken voice lessons for about 3 years, but it's not the same... and I increasingly wish that I could accompany myself.
6) Describe your style in real life.
I'm not as interesting in real life as I am in Polyvore. I tend to wear simple outfits, and heels don't mix with my lifestyle. I love sweaters of all kinds, no matter what.
Preppy and nautical style generally appeals to me, mixed with some vintage inspiration. If I had more money I'd shop more, but I don't :) #poorhighschoolstudent
7) What age of your life was your favorite and why?
I actually really like where I am now... I've figured out the social scene and I love my groups of friends. I wouldn't change, and I can't think of any better time in my (short) life.
8) What's your favorite quote?
no. just no. I have piles of quotes everywhere... here are some I like:
"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose." -- Jim Elliot
"Be the change you wish to see in the world." -- Gandhi
"To love another person is to see the face of God" -- Les Mis, the best musical. ever.
"There are always flowers for those who want to see them.” -- I think this is Matisse? not sure.
9) What kind of person are you/were you like in high school? (i.e. are you the really studious type, the party-girl type, the class clown, the class president, etc.)
I'm still in high school. I'm one of the "bright" kids just because I like school (I do! just not the homework) and I'm more studious than some of my friends. That said, I'm usually in the center of things. In my classes the popular kids are all really brilliant, and I'm friends with most of them, so I guess that translates to me?
I'm very innocent about the world in general, and most of my friends know that... so I'm the sweet friendly one, but not the party girl at all.
10) Say one random fact about yourself.
I'm going to Switzerland next year! that's sort of well known now since I put it in my last set but oh well.
11) Describe yourself in 5 adjectives.
Outgoing. Happy. Adventurous. Indecisive. Caring.
and I tag:
EDIT: so apparently I can't count and I only tagged 9 people... :D fixed it!
This tag has been going around, so if you've been tagged like 40 billion times and you've already done this ignore me :) Or if you don't do tags, ignore me. But I'd still love to see your sets!
