September Wrap Up ( and Liebster)

Hello October, didn’t see you coming there. Yesterday the sun was shining and now all of a sudden the wind is howling and leaves of red hues are blowing about and crackling under my shoes. I love autumn and its amazing colours. In fact I love all seasons really.  I am very enthusiastic about the seasons and festivities that go with them. So this month I’ll be busy wrapping up in warm clothes, reading lots of books by the fire and baking some halloweeny cakes!

Last month (September),  I…

  • started college
  • read the 5th Wave
  • knitted a hat
  • journalled
  • played Sail by Awolnation on piano
  • tried to relearn guitar… fail.
  • cuddled by cat Daisy a lot ( she broke her paw!!!)
  • watched Vlogbrothers
  • and… listened to a lot of cool bands.

My blog posts from September…

3. Nominate 11 other bloggers.
4. Set them 11 questions.
5. Put the award button on your site.
well, because I’m so bad ass I’m going to bend the rules a little (and also because I don’t know where the button is… EMILY!!) (and also also because I don’t think I’m following … 11 blogs….)

The Facts.

1.  I cannot stand “lol” ( laugh out loud). It just INFURIATES me! It’s not just “lol”, I also seriously dislike “girl”, “babez”, “awks”, “totes”, just any annoying abbreviations.

9. I’d pick the freezing cold over the warm sun, any day.
10. My lucky number is 8.
11. The Sims is my favourite computer game.

The 11 Questions.

1. Which book world would you live in,  if you could never return?
That’s easy. Harry Potter. Duh!
2. Which book world would travel to for a week before returning?
I’d love to visit The Night Circus.
3. What book have you been meaning to read forever but just not got around to?
Game of Thrones, 1984, Gone Girl, Northern Lights, An Abundance of Katherines… just to name a few.
4. What book did everyone else love but you hated?
Hmm… One Day, To kill a mockingbird, Paper Towns ( *please don’t hurt me* ).
5. What book were you very sceptical about reading but actually loved?
Hush Hush.
6. Fictional Crush?
Gus from TFioS and probably Patch from Hush Hush.
7. Most perfect book ending?
The Book Thief.
8. What do you do when you’re bored?
Watch Gossip Girl, or read, or knit, or read, or draw, or read, or listen to music, or read.
9. When did you last cry, and why?
I think the last time was two months ago while watching TFiOS for obvious reasons.
10.  What’s your happy song(s)?
Come On Eileen.
11. And finally what’s your sad song(s)?
Do you mean what do I listen to when I’m sad or what song makes me sad? Well there’s a few that make me feel better when I’m sad; Perfect by P!nk, Don’t you forget about me, Brave by Sara bareilles. But every time I hear that religious song “do not be afraid” I always burst into tears. It just always reminds me of funerals. And for an 18 year old I have been to way too many funerals.
Instead of nominating 11 people I’m just going to nominate everyone who reads this. Just comment your answers to the questions instead of doing a post… or if you really want to then by all means go do a post.

8. If you could change your name, what would you pick?

11. Ask me a question, and I’ll answer it in the comment.

    MARIAN! Thank you for the mention (and also your extremely long and funny comment on my blog!). Ooh you have a nose piercing?? Snazzy! I HATE P FACES TOO! YES! L FACES ALL THE WAY! Also I've not seen The Breakfast Club 🙁 it's v upsetting. I really want to see it, a lot. Soon, maybe!! ALSO, I am amazed you haven't cried for two months … O.o You must be a woman of steel.

    Can I come and live in Harry Potter world with you?? It would just be the best thing …. aaggghhh … sometimes I get really sad remembering it's actually not real. Then the only way forward is … to reread.

    1. How old are you?
    15 years and 362 days. It's my birthday on Monday! 😀

    2. 3 favourite hobbies?
    Reading, writing, blogging, drawing, baking. THAT'S FIVE BITE ME. (Although, does reading count as a hobby? Maybe not.)

    3. What are you reading write now?
    I am reading A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. It's v good.

    4. Who is your favourite superhero?
    Spiderman …. although I am a pathetic superhero buff, ie I know absolutely nothing about any of them and I have seen a total of three superhero films in my life: the two new Spidermans and Batman the Dark Knight. I HATED the Batman — I found it so boring! — but I love the Spiderman ones. Also Andrew Garfield … I mean … aagghhh … *_*

    5. Have you ever met anyone famous?
    Nope. Unless you count the author of the HIVE series (I think he's called Mark Walden … I think) who came to my primary school once …

    6. What is your most played song on your playlist?
    I'm not sure, I don't have my iPod on me. Probably something by Elbow or Ed Sheeran, let's be honest.

    7. Tell me one of your dreams/ ambitions?
    TO BE AN AUTHOR! Published. To have people fangirl over my books and ship my couples.

    8. If you could change your name, what would you pick?
    mmm I'm not sure. I love fantasy names like Corisande and Jacinthe and Clariandra but I couldn't really go through life with a name like that, honestly. That's why I put them in my fantasy novels! (All three of those names appear in my WIP!)

    9. Any randoms?
    What? Randoms? The sweets? What?

    10. What is your favourite movie?
    Nope. Too many. Napoleon Dynamite. Shrek. She's the Man. Brief Encounter. Bend it like Beckham. Toy Story 1-3. Ice Age 1-3. Monsters Inc. Mulan. Chicken Run. 10 Things I Hate About You. Bridge to Terebithia. Les Mes. Baz Lurhman's Romeo and Juliet. What's Eating Gilbert Grape? Chocolat. POTC. There are far too many!!!

    11. Ask me a question, and I'll answer it in the comment.
    Celebrity crush? (You're only allowed to pick one! Who is your main man?)

  • Marian October 10, 2014 at 2:52 pm

    ^_^ No probelmo. Answering your questions was actually fun. L FACES!!! :L
    *nods* you MUST watch the Breakfast Club! Pfft – steel; hardly.
    OF COURSE! My great master plan is to find Mr.Weasley's car, fly it to Hogwarts, not drive into the Whomping Willow, get into Gryffindor/ Ravenclaw, eat magically in the Great Hall, become quidditch seeker, win the house cup and live Happily Ever after there.

    2. 😀 reading is most definitely a hobby.
    3. Charles Dickens, eh?
    4. Andrew Garfield is one of my many future husbands. Along with Johnny Depp and Theo James.
    5. Never heard of him. I met Jedward once….
    6. YES! Ed Sheeran <3 …. now I have to listen to Grounds for Divorce – Elbow.
    7. I will read your books and fangirl all over and TWEET about them …*get on twitter!!*
    8. Interesting, very Interesting.
    9. Um – I don't remember what that question was suppose to be….. Oopsy Daisy.
    10. MULAN!!
    11. hmmmm…. ummmm…. errrr….. JUST ONE? …. Okay….. Ahmmm…. I think I'll go with it…. Zac Efron…. oh god, I said it…. I mean – 17 AGAIN!!!

  • Emily October 12, 2014 at 9:12 am

    Yes yes yes, when you find the car LET ME KNOW!! I'll provide the toffee for the journey 😉
