Questions!

I think is because I’m a big fan of social media but I always feel like I can’t be myself, I wanted a place where I could pour some of my truth freely.

  • 2. Who is your biggest fictional crush?

Well that’s hard. If we’re talking about books then I guess Gansey from the Raven Boys, if we’re talking about movies I think it’s impossible for me to decide. Now if we’re talking about tv shows, Pacey from Dawson’s Creek is my favorite everything haha.

  • 3. What’s a skill you wish you had?

Draw. Or be skilled with the camera.

I’m so embarrassed with this haha. I set myself a goal of 20 books and I only read 10…

  • 5. Which was your favourite?

I’ll give you the sun by Jandy Nelson

  • 6. If you were thrown back in time which time period would you hope to end up in (and why)?

Maybe the 30’s or 20’s. Why? Fashion basically

  • 7. What are you most looking forward to in 2017?

Learning more.

  • 8. What is your all time favourite TV show?

I’m always changing the answer to this question but at the moment I think Sense8

  • 9. Do you have any plans for your blog?

Writing more hopefully

  • 10. What is one of your biggest life goals and how to do you hope to achieve it?

To move to the U.S. How do I plan to achieve it? I guess by finding a place to work there.. I really don’t have a plan formed

  • 11. What animal do you most closely relate to?

Probably a cat.

Those were some great questions!

 I’m leaving this one open for anyone who feels like doing it. 

My questions:

  1. What is your favorite thing about having a blog?
  2. What/Where is your favorite place in the world?

The playlist shuffle tag

img_6695

So I was not tagged at this at all but I saw it on chocolatenwafflesblog and it sounded pretty cool so why not?

Rules:

#1 List the first 10 songs that come on shuffle (no skipsies)
#2 Then write your favorite lyric (or verse) from that song
#3 Tag others

Heartbeat // Childish Gambino

I’m a ghost and you know this.

Green & Gold // Lianne La Havas 

Six years old
Staring at my nose in the mirror
Trying to dip my toes in the mirror
Thinking ‘Who’s that girl?’
And ‘Does the mirror world go on forever?’

Satisfied // Hamilton (YESSS)

So this is what it feels like to match wits
With someone at your level! What the hell is the catch? It’s
The feeling of freedom, of seein’ the light
It’s Ben Franklin with a key and a kite! You see it, right?

Virginia Moon // Foo Fighters (Ft. Norah Jones)

Dearest constellation, heaven surrounding you
Stay there, soft and blue. Virginia Moon, I’ll wait for you tonight.

Hurricane // MS MR

Nights like this I become afraid
Of the darkness in my heart

Son of Man // Phil Collins (Tarzan Soundtrack)

In learning you will teach
And in teaching you will learn

The Blower’s Daughter // Damien Rice 

And so it is
The shorter story
No love, no glory
No hero in her skies.

Live Forever // Oasis

Maybe I just want to fly
I want to live, I don’t want to die
Maybe I just want to breathe
Maybe I just don’t believe

Sounds Like Hallelujah // The Head and the Heart

I’m just waitin’ on the moon
With all the stars and all its gloom
We can watch it fall right back into place

Home // Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros

Laugh until we think we’ll die, barefoot on a summer night


I’m gonna be honest with you, I know it said no skipping but because I had a lot of classic music I had to :/ Anyway this was fun and I was not even tagged so I’m not going to tag anybody, you’re free to do it if it sounds like fun to you!

See ya!

The Spooky Halloween Tag

IMG_6499.JPEG

I’m big on Halloween, I love it a lot and it doesn’t help that they don’t celebrate it where I live. So because I’m feeling especially spooky this year, I decided to create a tag for Halloween! I’m sure there’s already one going around but whatever. I took some of the questions from the tag my favorite youtuber Simply_Kenna created on her channel.

Anyway here it goes.

Rules:

  1. Mention the person who tagged you. 
  2.  Answer the questions.
  3. Tag 31 blogs… lol no, I’m joking. 31, get it? Because October 31. Bad joke, okay. Tag 8 blogs!

Questions:

  1. Favorite Halloween movie.
  2. What would you like to dress for Halloween? Your ultimate, favorite costume ever, what would it be?
  3. trick or treat?
  4. What do you prefer, ghosts or witches?
  5. Favorite activity to get in the Halloween mood?
  6. Halloween, Christmas or New Year?
  7. If you could create a potion that could do anything you wanted, what would it do?
  8. Favorite Halloween special on tv?
  9. Candy corn, yay or nay?
  10. Any favorite Halloween song?

Answers:

  1. Favorite Halloween Movie

Would probably have to be Hocus Pocus. That movie is a must for me in the season. It’s not Halloween if I haven’t watch it.

2. What would you like to dress for Halloween? Your ultimate, favorite costume ever, what would it be?

There’s a lot but only one is constant, Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. That movie is one of my favorite ones and I love Dorothy’s dress and I always wanted to dress like her for a Halloween party but never found the costume and I’m too lazy to do it myself, I don’t even know how to sew so…

3. Trick or treat?

Everything that will end with me having candy in my hand, so treat.

4. what do you prefer, ghosts or witches?

Witches. I get really scared with ghost stories and movies, plus being a witch is my real dream job.

5. Favorite activity to get in the Halloween mood?

The only things that I can do around here to get in the Halloween mood is to watch movies or go to some costume party. I usually hate parties but I’ll do whatever to get into a costume. I also go to the cemetery with my best friend.

6. Halloween, Christmas or New Year?

Either Halloween or Christmas. I feel like if I lived somewhere else and I could really get into the Halloween spirit I would totally choose that but because Christmas here is a bigger deal than Halloween is I will go with Christmas. Everyone gets into the mood when it’s Christmas.

7. If you could create a potion that could do anything you wanted, what would it do?

I would like to create something that stops me from being shy but you have alcohol for that so I would like to create a potion that would allow me to transport anywhere with just a drop of it.

8.Favorite Halloween special on tv?

Disney specials are the best so anything Disney Halloween themed.

9. Candy corn, yay or nay?

They don’t sell these in my country but I actually got to try them and they would not be my first option but they’re not bad.

10. Any favorite Halloween song?

Actually three though I don’t know if the third one could be considered a Halloween song. The first one is This Is Halloween from The Nightmare Before Christmas, the second one is Monster Mash. And the third one is Sally’s song also from The Nightmare Before Christmas. I know it’s not a halloween song but I love it and it has such a creepy and sweet tone.

I tag…

  • Bed sheets? I’m moving soon and I need some new ones.

3) Favourite breakfast?

waffles with bacon.

I lay down and listen to music or watch something to calm down (YouTube videos of an interview with a favorite actor/actress or a Parks & Rec or The Office episode)

Usually personal ones, ones with pictures, favorites of the [month], movie reviews and book reviews.

The Character Book Tag

Photo May 27, 4 57 38 PM.png

Chloe from (Over) Analysing Literature left this tag open and I thought it looked like fun so I’m gonna do it and hope I don’t end up rambling about the characters because I feel like a proud mom when I talk about them. Alright let’s do it!

In fair warning I haven’t been reading lately so my answers might have no sense or talk about old books I read.

1. Who is the most tough and awesome character?

Hmm… this is hard. I’m between Harry Potter and Katniss Everdeen. Funny thing is these two protagonist are the ones which I had most trouble liking at first place but have to admit they’re awesome and tough.

Harry lost his family when he was a baby and had to go through all those years of abuse by the Dursleys. Then he got to hear how great his parents were and how they had been murdered by a dark wizard who seemed to be after him. When he founds Sirius, his godfather, he feels like he might have a  chance of having a family and then Sirius dies.

Harry went through a lot, I mean, he came back from the dead! And he did all this being just a kid. He’s pretty much awesome because he’s a great wizard even though he seemed to have no idea what he’s doing most of the time, he goes with whatever idea comes first and it always works. I don’t think I need more excuse,  he defeated Lord Voldemort when he was just a baby!

Katniss was used as a political symbol being just 17 years old, she started a revolution that change millions of lives… AND SHE WAS JUST 17! At 17 I was failing almost every subject of high school. Plus she did all that for her sister and in the end her sister dies…

2. Which character do you most dislike?

This is also hard… I have a feeling every question is going to be hard for me. I didn’t finish this series but Sebastian from The Mortal Instruments was a piece of sh*t.

3. If you could date a fictional character,whom would it be?

RICHARD GANSEY III… he, he. Or Blue Sargent, she’s the best. When I was young I had a major crush on Ponyboy from The Outsiders… or Mr. Knightley from Emma… I could go on.

4. If you could change a character in any way what would it be?

I don’t know, I guess that while reading I have a lot of comments towards the characters and their personalities but after I finished the books I just see the bigger picture rather than that aspect of their personality.

5.What character made all the wrong choices which didn’t add anything to the story?

Noah from I’ll Give You the Sun… I do get he was really young and had a lot on his shoulder so I don’t really blame him but he did make some bad decisions that could have been avoided.

I could also mention Macbeth here but his wrong choices added a lot to the story.

6. Which Character do you love to hate?

I guess I could go with Alex from A Clockwork Orange. Honorable mentions: Lord Voldemort from Harry Potter, Joseph Kavinsky from The Dream Thieves, Don John from Much Ado About Nothing, Nick Bottom from A Midsummer Night’s Dream (I don’t know I just can’t get to like that character)…

7. Favorite sidekick character with the most heart.

Noah from The Raven Boys 🙂

I want to stop mentioning Harry Potter and that’s why I’m not saying Ron or Hermione.

8. What is your favorite fictional romantic relationship?

*Sweats because she wants to keep mentioning HP characters* Gansey and Blue from The Raven Boys, they’re so different yet you get the feeling they go well together. They know they’re not going to find what they’re looking for in each other but it doesn’t mean they can’t find it hand in hand.

Also: Scarlet and Wolf from The Lunar Chronicles, they’re so cute!!! Ronan and Adam from The Raven Cycle too.Chloe mentioned Gilbert and Anne from Anne of Green Gables and I absolutely agree. Beatrice and Benedick and yeah alright I’m sorry I have to… I love Ron and Hermione and Ginny and Harry.

9. Who do you think is the strongest character?

They’re a lot of characters that would enter in this area. I mean all the protagonists are usually really strong characters. I could mention Oliver Twist because he was just a kid and he went trough a lot but I read the book a long time ago (like 8 years ago) and I don’t remember that much of it.

10. Best protagonist?

I feel like Blue Sargent is the proper answer here. Usually it takes me a while to like the protagonist but I loved her from the first chapter (My precious feminist baby!). Also Lou Clark from Me Before You was a character I undoubtedly liked. Charlie from The Perks of Being a Wallflower… It’s really difficult choosing one.

11. Whom do you tag?

Everyone! If you want to do it, do it. If you don’t, don’t. Your choice!

4 Fact Survey

Hey people, how you doin’? [Joey’s voice] I’m doing horrible if you were interested in knowing. I got the freaking flu and right now I’m pretty sure I’m seeing double. But I’m going to do this anyway because life must go on.

So this Flu thing came on the worst time possible. I have classes and I can’t miss them (I already missed two) because next week I’m having a mini trip with my grandparents and sister and I’m going to be absent a whole week. The thing is, I feel like crap…


 

Anyway, first of all, thank you (Over)Analysing Literature for tagging me. I love doing these, they just keep me entertained.

The “rules” per say are answer the questions and then tag four more people so they can answer them, too. Let’s start.

Four names people call me other than my real name:

  • Jackie.
  • Jackita (my grandparents)
  • Hmm, I don’t know, that’s it really.

fun fact: My sister used to call me golden teddy bear when she was young and I have no idea why. She would hug me and say “my golden teddy bear” Now she’s a teenager and she rather be dead that call me that lol.

Four Jobs I’ve had:

Yeah… I only had one job: “Secretary Assistant” (in a formal way of putting it)

Four movies I’ve watched more than once:

  • Lilo & Stitch
  • Mulan
  • Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban
  •  Stardust.

There are so many really. (Mansfield Park, 10 Thing I Hate About You, any Marvel movie after Iron Man, Romeo + Juliet. Much Ado About Nothing… the list goes on and on…)

Four books or authors I recommend:

  • I’ll give you the sun by Jandy Nelson
  • The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle) by Maggie Stiefvater
  • Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
  • Harry Potter books (Sorry I can’t help it!)

Okay, honestly these (except the Harry Potter books) are the last books I read and loved. I’m not good at recommending really. I could say classics but every time I recommended classics people just didn’t listen.

Four places I’ve lived:

I have only lived in one place, unfortunately.

Four places I’ve visited:

  • York, UK.
  • Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
  • Cancun, Mexico.
  • Florida, USA.

Four things I’d rather be doing right now:

  • Visiting Disney parks. (always)
  • Sleeping (I want to sleep this flu off!)
  • Traveling!
  • Dancing to some classic music as if I was in a period movie (Because I’m listening right now)

Four foods I prefer not to eat:

  • Spinach.
  • Pepper.
  • Fish (Fish are friends not food!)
  • Color noodles (EW!)

Four of my favorite foods:

  • Salads!
  • Squid rings
  • Fried chicken
  • Tacos (without pepper!)

Yeah I’m not much of a healthy eater.

Four television shows I watch: 

  • Daredevil
  • How to Get Away With Murder
  • Doctor Who
  • Bates Motel

(But I’m not updated with any of those because I suck)

Four things I’m looking forward to this year:

  • Finding a job
  • Holidays
  • All superhero movies (and villain in the case of Suicide Squad)
  • JK. Rowling’s new book/play

(AND FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM MOVIE)

Four things I’m always saying:

  • “I want to go to Disney”
  • “This year I’ll get a job”
  • “I hate everyone”, “I always have to do everything”, “I’m behind with that tv show”
  • “Nina, you’re the most important thing to me” Says to her dog as her dog wants to get the hell out of the hug.

People I’m Asking:

If you want to do it and you’re not tagged feel free 🙂
