A while back I was tagged by the lovely Cuppa ‘N Critiques for this unique and interesting little tag to get to know me better. My timing feels a bit ironic because I did a get to know me post to celebrate 600 followers, but still this post feels like it’s really enjoyable to write!
Nicknames: Ti, Tia, T-T, and some random ones like: Tiguana, Iguana, among others that have randomly colored my life. I’m called by random names so often that nicknames have become a part of who I am. It’s really interesting to see how many people just randomly make of names for me I really enjoy it.
Birthday: December 17th
Star sign: Sagittarius
Occupation: full-time college student
Hair color: A darkish blonde
Hair length: longish, I used to have hair all the way down my back I cut it a couple years ago to shoulder length and now I’m growing it back. I miss my longer locks!
Eye Color: depending on the light, grey, blue, or a greenish color.
Best Feature: My eyes for sure!
Braces: These things were once the bane of my existence, but they did help me emmensly so I am grateful to have had them.
Piercings: one in each earlobe and that’s it. I want to get at least one more in each ear eventually though.
Tattoos: I don’t have any, but in a way I like to think I’d get one one day. As much as I’ve been told not to, something about having art that represents who you are permanently expressed on your body is beautiful to me. I don’t know what I would get yet, but eventually I think I’d find the perfect thing for me to have.
Right or Left: Righty..
Real Holiday: I think this means vacation so I’m gonna say the first one I remember was to Hawaii. It was beautiful, but I was with the wrong people and so I didn’t really enjoy it as much as I should have little as I was.
Best Friend: Really and truly I don’t think I’ve ever had the experience of a real “Best Friend” As a kid I was a loner and as I got older I made friends, but whenever I moved the connection would be lost. I don’t even really like the connetation of “Best Friend” in the end I feel like it seperates people unless it’s a tried and true friendship that’s lasted over the years. Long story short, I really don’t think I have.
Award: I have old family films that tell me that would be in first grade. I honestly have no idea what it was for, but I remember the pride I felt when I got it and searching for my God family amoung what felt like a sea of parents to my small self to share the moment with them.
Sport: Figure Skating, although many don’t think of it as a sport it was something that was very special to me, something I had to give up in order to go to the middle school I needed to be in a few years later.
Concert: I haven’t been to a Concert, concert, but I have gone to see the band and show that plays at Six flags.
Tv Show(s): Doctor Who, Sherlock, American Horror Story, Three’s Company, The Big Bang Theory… etc. etc.
Color: Tardis Blue, I love most all colors though.
Song(s): Clarity Zedd, Shape of You Ed Sheeran, Papercut Zedd, Dovregubben Zedd, literally anything by Zedd… also anything by Melanie Martinez or Purity Ring. Plus so much more!
Restaurant: The Tamale House and El Buen Gusto… both have such amazing food!
Shop: Any book stores (including thrift stores that sell books), IKEA, Sidecca (a vintage clothing store), Journey’s, and at times Fry’s Electronics.
Books: NOT THIS! There are too many books to love! For now I will put The Giver, Tess of the D’Ubervilles, A Northern Light, Ready Player One, anything Julie Kagawa writes, the Splintered series (despite its flaws), and many many more.
Shoes: Anything from Journey’s really, haven’t been able to buy from there in so long! Sheds a lone tear.
Feeling: Tired yet somehow contented, excited, and happy (but I just got half-way through ACOTAR so…)
Single or Taken: Single as I always have been. I feel like I give off some sort of back away vibe or something… I am still happy as can be. The right time will come when it comes.
Eating: Nothing, it’s midnight and there is no food in sight.
Thinking About: Life, how things end up being the way they are meant to be. Plus, ACOTAR because that book is AMAZING so far!
Watching: Peaks of a Hallmark movie my mom put on, my family never sleeps.
Wearing: A Micky Mouse pajama top and Baymax pajama pants. Disney is a love that never dies and I refuse to be ashamed.
Want Children: I don’t really know, I’m not sure how good of a mother I would be and the responsibility scares the crap out of me, but at a much older age then 18 and a much different mindset and security I would probably be more open to it.
Want to be Married: It would be nice to have a husband one day, but finding the right person takes time and if I never meet the one for me then I don’t think I mind being on my own.
Careers in Mind: A writer of course! Nothing would make me happier.
Where you Want to Live: Somewhere comfortable, a place where I’m not far from humanity and near a theme park as well as museums, art, and culture. A place where I’m never too far from new and beautiful experiences.
Do you Believe in
God: yes I do. I don’t worship by going to church or anything like that, but I feel that his presence in my life is undeniable. I feel his guidance in my life even before I was born. I feel a deep connection with him especially in nature, it’s something that I feel so deeply that I can’t even explain it properly.
Miracles: Yes, it truly is a miracle that I’m even sitting where I’m sitting today.
Love at first sight: for some people yes, but for me I don’t really think so. It takes me a while to truly fall for someone (even if it’s always unrequited)
Also, for our children I would say yes, that kind of love I think is the pitiest of all.
Ghosts: I think that ghosts, spirits have a presence in our lives. There are too many unknowns out there for me not to at least wonder.
Aliens: yes, too many planets and solar systems out there for us to be the only planet with life. It is a curiosity that will probably never be dated in me.
Soul Mates: Yes, but I feel that true soulmates are the rarest form of love. My favorite way of thinking about soul mates is the red string of fate, a beautiful cord that teathers you and your soulmate by an invisible red string around your pinkies. Follow the string and you find the person your soul was meant to complete.
Heaven: Most definitely, I even have hope that our pets meet us there as well.
Hell: yes, sadly I believe there is one. To what it entails I could never fully imagine.
Kissing on the First Date: Yes… If you really like the person I don’t see anything wrong with this at all.
Yourself: Sometimes, not always, but I think that’s a spot that I’ve been steadily improved upon these past few years.
