Questions from Ally

  1. If you could acquire any ability, what would it be?
    • The ability to hoola-hoop! I’ve literally never figured out how, and I’m pretty sure, at this point, it’s witchcraft (the dark kind).
  2. What’s your perfect breakfast?
    • Waffles (preferably chocolate), with two eggs, sunny side up! OR yogurt and toast!
  3. What’s your phone background?
    • My lock screen is my girlfriend and I from Christmas and my home background is me and my cat, Jonas!
  4. Who was your first favourite author?
    • I have several, but if I was forced at gunpoint to pick just one, to keep it fair (since this author is now dead), I’d say J.D. Salinger.
  5. If you could use any spell from Harry Potter, which would it be and why?
    • I have literally never read a HP book in my life . . . sorry (**everyone unfollows)
  6. If you could only name your children (or pets if you don’t want children) after the characters in a book series, which series and names would you choose?
    • Ha! Probably the Thrown of Glass series. I like Dorian, Aelin, and Rowan as names.
  7. What’s something you’ve recently been obsessed with? Gush about it.
    • BAKING! I just LOVE baking, and I try to find a new recipe to make every weekend, though it’s difficult when 1) you’re attempting to eat as healthy as possible 2) you have a college budget and 3) you have little kitchen space
  8. If you could require everyone to read one book, which book would it be?
    • The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
  9. Hot or iced coffee?
    • Hot

  5. I lost over 150+ pounds.

  1. Okay, so first of all, thanks (as always) for tagging me. But second of all… I can’t believe you’re going to make me choose between baby boi and BIG BOI. I’ll be contemplating my answer all day. I’ll also be on the lookout for new Hammond’s flavors. ❤️

      Thank you so much for the nomination! I look forward to answering your questions. Also, I am a little in love with Jonas and his story (okay a lot). I love that you haven’t read a single HP book. It’s so refreshing.

      1. Ha! I’m glad you find that refreshing, as I know some people may have sent death threats. I honestly have no interest at this point.

        Also, Jonas is just ♥️😭 my boi. I love him so much, and I’m glad you do to!

        I’m excited to read your answers !

        HP is not my favorite, even the slightest bit so it’s nice to see someone not interested in it. Haha.
        I have a kitty name Nala so I totally get your love! She’s my little princess.

  2. Congrats! I love the names Rowan and Dorian! Also, your phone lock and background screens — SO CUTE! I also prefer coffee hot — it’s okay cold, but hot is my preferred way of drinking it.

    Oh man … if I could talk to my 15 year old self, we would be having some SERIOUS conversations …

    Your answers were a lot of fun to read through!

  4. omg we’re kind of the same person for breakfast?? I love chocolate waffles too, and I’m not a fan of bacon (I wouldn’t say I hate it, it’s just *severely* overrated and better as a garnish in salad and pasta rather than eating it on it’s own) AND I love sunny-side-up or scrambled eggs too!

    Also your advice to 15-year-old you is such a mood and wow same
