Hey everyone!! I hope you guys are doing great! I’m back today with the form for my 400 followers Q&A and my 3rd take on The Liebster Award.
I was tagged for the award back in January by the amazing Jane @ Blogger Books, and in total Rukky fashion, here I am finally doing it 8 months later. Many thanks to Jane for tagging me!! These questions are pretty reflective, so we’ll see how it goes.
But first, be sure to fill out my 400 follower Q&A form so I can do a Q&A!! (it’d be really sad if I get only 3 questions lol) I do have some feedback questions at the start, but none of it is required except the one where you ask me your questions. But I’d appreciate it if you gave your feedback as well! Thank you guys so much! The link is above, and I will include the form itself embedded at the end of this post.
And now, without further ado, let’s get started!
- Say thank you to the person who has nominated you for the Award.
- Answer the 11 questions the person has asked you
- Nominate 11 people
- Ask the people who you have nominated 11 questions
Do you have any New Year’s Resolutions?
Lol, I don’t think so. I had goals but there wasn’t anything that I was determined to do or not do this year. Or if I did, I can’t remember anymore.
What are you looking forward to in the next decade of your life?
I’m going to be so much older in a decade. Wow. I guess I look forward to being done with school and uni, getting a job, hopefully finally publishing a book, still blogging, still reading, and maybe who knows…possibly….married? Hehe 😅
GUYS I’M GOING TO BE SO OLD IN A DECADE not really, but it feels like that 😭
What’s the most important thing you’ve learned during the last decade?
Make yourself happy. That doesn’t mean you should be annoying and mean just because “it makes you happy”. That’s just being mean.
What I mean is: if studying this subject or doing this hobby isn’t something you’re passionate about or it’s something you don’t like, don’t suffer through it because other people said you should. It’s your life, and it will feel awful the longer you keep doing it.
I’m still working on this, and possibly failing, but I think it’s very important. If you’re like me and you’re just doing things because other people expect them of you, or said that you should, you’re going to regret it a lot.
Which books shaped you as a person?
Even though I can’t stand the first two of these series anymore, I think Nancy Drew, the Gallagher Girls series, and The Naturals series were what shaped my reading habits and current interests.
Nancy Drew was the first series that truly introduced me to mysteries and made me fall so much in love with the genre.
Gallagher Girls introduced me to espionage and the idea of kid spies still sounds like the coolest job of all time. Yes, I know, IRL it’s not as glamorous and it’s probably a lot more dangerous, but please, leave me to my delusions.
The Naturals introduced me to the FBI, psychology, profiling, murders, and that entire world, and I loved it. The idea of teenagers working undercover for the FBI to uncover serial killers by having special abilities was awesome, and I loved seeing them solve cases while still being a weird group of friends. It also made me want to get a job with the FBI for a while lol
Sadly, I can’t stand Nancy Drew anymore, Gallagher Girls feels so childish, and I haven’t re-read The Naturals yet, so I can’t really say about that. I’ve been thinking about picking it up recently, and now this has made me super nostalgic so maybe I will.
What defines you as a person?
I have no idea how to answer this question. What defines me?
I’m just a girl who loves her books, her food, and her blog, is extremely introverted irl but incredibly annoying online, and who has an unhealthy obsession with crime, murders, and everything related to that.
I’m not sure what defines me per se. Maybe my personality? Idk
Who inspires you to be a better person?
My parents and the people around me. They’re all so inspiring and they offer pretty good advice which I don’t heed half the time smh. They are always there being amazing role models. They all make me want to be a better person.
What’s your dream job?
My dream job is being a lawyer or detective. I would love to be a lawyer because I’m obsessed with the law and the idea of justice, and I just think it’s a really really cool job. I’d also want to be a detective because I want to be investigating crimes and finding the people who do things that are wrong.
But also, you know, having a safe boring life is also pretty cool, so I’ll stick to coding for now.
If you were to travel to 2030, where do you think you’d find yourself?
2030 sounds so far away but it sounds so cool at the same time. I really hope it’s not as much of a dumpster fire as this year is.
In 2030, I think I’d find myself in a better place. I’m in a good place right now but I’m hoping that by then, I would have stopped being so unsure of myself and would have become the mature confident adult that I want to be.
That’s probably not going to happen, but a girl can wish.
Which books can you read over and over again?
The Fixer and The Long Game. It’s the only duology that I’ve reread and loved even more the second time around. It’s such an awesome political thriller centered around teens, with zero romance, and I love it!! You all really need to read it!
How would you title your autobiography, were you to write one?
*spends 5 minutes contemplating*
Everything I think of doesn’t sound right. A Quiet Thunder, A Quiet Storm…I’m not really a thunder or a storm. And the rest or just plain bleh.
Maybe: The Adventures of an Introvert: no, it’s not a boring story
I know, it’s awful lol
What’s the most important thing you look for when reading a book?
When I’m reading, I look for the point of the story. I love books with a fast plot, or great and complex characters, but I will be frustrated if there no point to the story.
Why did I just read this? What am I supposed to get from it?
It doesn’t have to be any philosophical point that questions my existence in the universe, but I want to understand what the story is supposed to be about . I hate finishing a book and I’m just sitting there wondering what on earth did I just read? and not in a good way
For instance, a book about two girls getting ice cream is just…? Okay…? That’s it?
But a book about two girls getting ice cream and meeting someone who could be a new friend, or learning a life lesson from the awesome ice cream man, or doing some sort of thing has a point, even if it is an awful or weak one.
My nominations and questions:
yes, it’s technically 14 people, but it’s 12 blogs, and yes, I know it’s supposed to be 11 blogs, but whatever
As always, no pressure if you don’t want to do it! And because
