A Tag//Elevensies

You may be getting tired of these things, but I enjoy them, so bear with me. I was tagged by Kiri Liz at Lianne Taimenlore. Here are the rules:
- If you are tagged/nominated, you must post eleven facts about yourself.
- Then, you must answer the eleven questions the tagger has given you and make eleven questions for the people you are going to tag.
- Next, tag eleven more bloggers. (As usual, I'm not actually going to tag anyone because I know some people don't do these and some find it annoying, but if you want to do this please feel free!)
- Tell the people you tagged that you have tagged them.
- No tagging back
My eleven facts:
1. My birthday is 6 days away.
2. I think that cilantro smells disgusting.
3. (no offense to anyone) but I really dislike One Direction.
4. I am often reading two or three books at a time.
5. People ask me all the time if I'm old enough to work at my job (the very youngest I could be to work there is around 15). I'll be 19 on my birthday. I don't know if it's my height, if I have a young looking face, or if it's a combination of the two. 
6. I really should be doing my school work right now. I'm a horrible procrastinator, and a lot of the time it comes back to bite me. I go through that whole cycle where I procrastinate, stay up until 1 or 2 in the morning to finish, and then promise myself that I'll never, ever procrastinate again. Then a few days later the process starts all over again.
7. I love rainy days in general, but in my opinion lately we've been getting entirely too many of them where I live.
8. my 100th post is coming up super soon! I'm hoping to do something big for it but as of now I still don't have any ideas.
9. I still haven't gotten around to reading Les Miserables. Maybe I never will. It kinda freaks me out, actually. It's very, very long.
10. I haven't posted any snippets lately, and I feel bad about that. It's not that I don't want to write, it's just that I haven't been feeling at all inspired lately. I guess it's because I'm just too busy.
11. I have had this post sitting in my drafts for quite some time now because I haven't been able to find the time to finish it.

The 11 questions from Kiri Liz:
1. What is your third favorite color? An interesting question. I guess I'd have to say blue.
2. If you could rewrite any scene from any book, which one would it be and why? Hmm... a lot of my favorite books are so well written that I really wouldn't change anything. But, I guess I would choose any scene from A Wrinkle in Time. The only thing I'd change would be to write it from Calvin's perspective. He's one of my book crushes.
3. Would you rather live in a old palace, a cottage in the woods, a pirate ship, or a underground burrow? Well, I hear old palaces can be a bit damp, I'm not really one for adventure on the high seas, and it would be entirely too dark underground. I'd choose the cottage in the woods, as long as it had plumbing.
4. How do you pronounce the word "often?" Off-ten? Or Off-fen? I don't really know! I guess it's off-ten, but I can't say for sure because now I'm thinking about it.
5. What is your favorite holiday film?  There are so many good ones, but I'll choose It's a Wonderful Life. It's old, but I like it a lot.

6. If you had a book (any book including a cookbook or a research book) published, what would be featured on the cover?
Well I suppose that depends on the contents of the book. If it was a compilation of my short little writings, it would be something pretty but simple. That's the kind of art I tend to gravitate to.
7. Where would your dream home be located? Ooh, that's another tough one. Maybe Prince Edward Island. I always thought it would be neat to live there. The only thing is that I'm not much for cold weather.  
8. If there was no such thing as tea or coffee in this world, what hot drink(s) would you consume? Hot chocolate and hot apple cider.    
9. What one song describes your life/day/mood? Umm.... well, this is another tricky one. I guess that for right now, I'd choose Living the Dream by Downhere. It's one of my favorites at the moment. It's quite catchy if I do say so myself.  
10. Peanut butter cookies, snickerdoodles, or gingerbread men? Peanut butter cookies. They're really delicious. I'm now craving them...  
11. What is something you absolutely love right now? Pumpkin pie milkshakes from where I work! They use real pumpkin in them and they are absolutely amazing. I drink way too many of them.

My eleven questions(It takes me so long to think of these!):
1. If you could write the sequel to any book, what book would you choose and why?
2. What was your favorite book when you were younger (maybe around 3rd grade)?
3. Would you rather write or take pictures? (I think I asked this question before, but oh well)
4. Do you like filling these things out as much as I do?
5. What website (other than blogger) do you spend the most time on?
6. What is your favorite holiday (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, etc)?
7. Which continent would you want to visit?
8. Why did you start blogging?
9. If you could choose one thing to get right now, what would it be (something like a nice car, a new camera, etc)?
10. If you had to choose, what would you say is your all-time favorite book?
11. what would your dream job be?

Now, I tag anyone who wants to fill this out. I don't want to be annoying by tagging people who don't really like to do these kind of things, plus I don't know if I could think of 11 people. Anyhoo, if you want to do this, just do it! And let me know in the comments. This should be the last one of these that I do for a while. I don't want to annoy anyone by posting too many!


  1. I want to go to P.E.I. sooo badly! I'm a little obsessed with L.M. Montgomery ;)

  2. Les Miserable FREAKS me out too. Part of me is dying to read it, but another part is scared of it. Hah.


Thanks for commenting! It truly makes my day.
