🥞 🏰 & ♋️? :]
🥞-What do you usually have for breakfast?
black coffee. sometimes a poptart or a mini cliff bar if i'm feeling frisky.
🏰-If you could live in any kind of building (castle, skyscraper, etc.), what kind would you live in?
a cozy manor with a lot of fireplaces on a sprawling estate on which i could ride my horses and read outside and tend to my ENORMOUS gardens and greenhouses
♋-Zodiac? Do you have any traits matching your zodiac?
i was born on a cusp date so i'm libra/virgo. i'm definitely pretty diplomatic and can mediate pretty well (ie. libra). i'm also very critical and can tend to be practical.
50 for the spotify wrapped asks?
by far one of my fav mountain goats songs, tbh. i started listening to it a lot when i was writing for nanowrimo because one of my characters was obsessed with the portrayal of immigrants in the eyes of american music. i lived vicariously through her.
this one was part of a night vale weather playlist i put together and for whatever reason every time i hit shuffle it would come up. nothing super personal about this one. i just liked the way the singer's voice sounds
I would do 🧶 but that would be too obvious...
🧣do you prefer cold weather or hot?
cold. you see, you can always put more layers on--but at some point you can't take any more layers off.
🤣what's the best part about your day?
🧶yarn (hint, the answer is always yes)
⭐-If you like space, what do you like about it?
stars!!!!!! i love stars and constellations so much. i wanna go stargazing with spider one day
🏕️-Have you ever been camping?
i was the eldest girl scout in the troop that i joined after i moved. i was very much an older sister figure and all of the girls wanted to be in a tent with me because they knew it would be more fun than being in a tent with one of the adults. it was a fun time and i love those girls so much.
💙 describe the best dream you've ever had & 🍽hummus...thoughts? :^)
i did 💙 for another user and here's the post linked because i'm lazy
i love it. i absolutely love it oh my god hummus is amazing
💙 describe the best dream you've ever had
the best dream i've ever had was kind of about the perfect day. i got coffee and then went to a yarn store to get supplies for a new project. then i went to the bookstore and purchased a shitton of books and then went home and sat by the fire knitting and watching the crown.
☕️ favourite drink? 🎹can you play an instrument? if so, what instrument?
☕️ fav drink
recently ive been drinking a lot of coffee and chai spice tea. though my FAVOURITE drink right now is a dirty chai latte with 2 extra shots of espresso (made by my favourite barista, isaac--who is also kind of my favourite person right now)
🎹can you play an instrument? if so, what instrument?
i can play flute, guitar, and the piano. fun fact: piano is one of the classes i took to fill my schedule this year because i don't have a car and have to stay here all day
citrus & balsam??
balsam must be really popular because you are the third person to ask. I'm happy to answer another one if you message me.
citrus: are there any accessories you wear every day?
i wear a caffeine molecule necklace almost every day.
tea tree and balsam and rosemary!
tea tree: do you often remember your dreams? if so, what did you dream about last night?
i remember my dreams sometimes. not all the time though. last night I dreamt about a life I might like to have one day--and I think I'll keep that to myself.
i already did balsam, but I'm happy to do a different one if you message me again.
rosemary: what's something good about you that even your worst enemy would have to agree with?
i make really good sandwiches.
balsam: what does a perfect day look like to you?
i see what you're trying to do here. you ain't slick 😉
a perfect day to me would probably involve a few cups of coffee, brunch, and laying around all day on a couch or bed watching movies or knitting beside Spider. I would want some kind of mac n cheese at some point also.
Lavender and Peppermint for the ask meme!
lavender: what always calms you down when you're stressed out?
i tend to knit, and when I cant do that I try to remember people in my life who make it lovely
peppermint: do you have a sweet tooth?
yes, unfortunately, which made moving back to America really hard
coriander ! c:
Coriander: What do you consider most beautiful?
that's a tough one. people feeling so at ease with themselves and so at peace that they can do anything is really beautiful. people loving others is truly beautiful. the flowers and bamboo growing outside my house is beautiful.
but what i consider most beautiful? what i consider most beautiful is the way the sun sets behind the hair of a loved one, and the light creates a little bit of a halo--and i know that anybody who stands where i am could see that loved one the way i always see them.
Orange blossom and Yarrow
Orange Blossom: Favorite fruit?
an ongoing debate between cherries and pomegranate
Yarrow: What is your bad habit?
i've got a bunch of these! i pick at my cuticles and consistently put myself in the center of things. i recently stopped biting my nails though, so that's nice.
🍊 - Do you like the smell of citrus?
I absolutely do!!!
🌵 - Do you like succulents and/or cacti? Do you have a favorite?
idk enough about succulents and cacti to know the name (that's more spider's department). my favourite is this one:
🌿 - What’s your favorite scented plant? Is it an herb? A flower? What do you like about it?
rosemary! it's associated with good memories of my childhood.
🍄 - What’s the feelings on mushrooms? Do you like them? Do you eat them? Would you ever try to grow your own?
love em. love to eat them. love to look at them. not sure i'd ever try to grow my own though
18, 23, & 26!
18. If you could travel anywhere, where would you go
france. i've always wanted to go there and in all of my travels i've never made it over to europe.
23. Dream job
high school history teacher (which is what i'll be going to school to study to be)
26. A fandom that you were once a part of but aren’t any longer
doctor who. i just don't watch it much anymore (which is mostly because i just don't have anywhere that i can watch it)
For the get to know: 11, 12, 15, and 16.
11. A movie you could watch over and over again
Hmmmmm I'd have to go with Love Actually. It's just the best. And also if we're talking about multi hour British extravaganzas, I'd like to submit my favourite mini-series--Pride and Prejudice (1995). Or maybe this is just about my affinity for Colin Firth.
12. Favorite book
I don't have one at the moment. I'm trying to read more books for pleasure instead of academia. I'll get back to you when I do that. In the meantime, my favourite academic article that I've read recently is Freewheelin’ scientists: citing Bob Dylan in the biomedical literature which can be found in the British Medical Journal.
15. Pie or cake
Pie! Cherry pie!
16. Favorite scent
Coffee. No doubt in my mind.
For the happy thing: I love postcards! My favorites are historical reprints, especially ones that are art pieces done of interesting places (rather than photos). I love looking at them and there's also fun in sending them, so other people can see them too.
i love receiving post cards and letters from friends. basically any kind of mail. my absolute favourite thing to do in the morning is looking in the mailbox to see if any of my friends have sent me anything.
i've also been waiting for some stuff from amazon that i ordered a few weeks ago and it's not here yet.
i need to get better at actually sending people mail. i tell people that i will and then it just never happens.
