Hello everyone! I hope you’ve been having a lovely week. Today I’m doing a tag that I came across at Kathy’s Books and Munches. She tagged anyone who read her post… and I read the post and it sounded fun! So, here we are! I guess, as the name suggests, the tag is not about books. But, it seemed like a fun, get to know you type thing, which I don’t do around here all that often. Without further ado, the Anything but Books Tag!
A Cartoon You Love
I don’t really watch a lot of TV, let alone cartoons. However, I really liked Spongebob when I was younger! (this is what Kathy said as well!) It’s kind of dumb, but it’s entertaining I suppose.
Current Favorite Song
Hmm… I’m really not good at picking favorite songs. For some reason it’s really hard for me. That said, lately I’ve been listening to a lot of the Greatest Showman music. I’m not normally a huge fan of musicals, but that one was really good! And many of the songs were great as well!
What could you do for hours that isn’t reading?
I’ve got two things: practice clarinet or draw. I have really gotten into playing clarinet and music in the past few years, and I’m getting pretty good. I actually made my state’s All-State band this past December. It takes hours upon hours of practice to get to that point, so I could easily use up a lot of time practicing. Also, I really love drawing and art things. I’m kind of slow when I do projects, so they use a lot of time as well.
What is something you love to do that would surprise your followers?
I guess this was kind of part of the last question, but I love drawing! I don’t know that I’ve really talked about it before on my blog. I guess I’m fairly good, but all I have to tell me are my family and friends, so of course they would say it is good! I recently did drawings of BB-8 from Star Wars and of Pickett from Fantastic Beasts.
What is your favorite, unnecessarily specific thing to learn about?
I really like to learn about New York City and all the buildings that are there. I want to go to college to be an architect, and I love learning about architecture. I have always been fascinated by New York, and I have tons of books about skyscrapers and other well known buildings. I even have a 3 ish foot tall model of the Empire State Building!
What is something unusual you know how to do?
Hmmm… I’m having trouble thinking of something unusual… but I guess I can do calculus really well. would think that the majority of people either don’t like it or are not very good at it, so maybe it’s unusual. I am currently in Calc 2, and it’s quite hard. I’d have to say Calc 1 was my favorite, but I enjoy all math, for the most part!
Name something you’ve made in the last year
Something I’ve made… well, as I mentioned earlier I love drawing, and I have done a few drawings recently. A couple weeks ago, I drew a quote from Lauren Oliver’s Delirium!
Your most recent personal project
I don’t entirely know what would count as a personal project, but I have been trying to learn yoga lately. It seems like a good way to get some exercise and stay healthy without having to run or lift weights or be the most fit person ever.
Tell us something you often think of
Well, considering I will be going to college in the fall, I am usually thinking about school and scholarships and planning for college. I want to study architecture, which is a very rigorous program. And there’s always the matter of paying for it, which is where scholarships and a job come in. I know I will get it figured out, though!
Tell us something that’s your favorite, but make it oddly specific
My favorite kind of cake is yellow with whipped chocolate frosting and rainbow sprinkles. I know there are millions of different kinds of cakes and many, many that are far more complex, but I just really like that combo for some reason. Also, it’s far better in cupcakes than in regular cake form. I don’t know why. Maybe the small size just makes it more fun!
I’d love to hear your answers to some of these questions in the comments! Feel free to do the entire tag, and link back to me so I can see your answers!!
