Happy Thursday, everyone! I spent several hours reorganizing my bookshelves Tuesday night, and had to part with some of my books to make room for the overflow *sobs* So I thought today’s Book Tag Thursday post could be about something other than books, to take my mind off of my obsession. I saw the Anything But Books Tag from Sydney @ Sydney’s Shelves, which was perfect!
Name a cartoon that you love, from childhood or now.
At 25 years old, I am still a cartoon watcher, though it’s harder without cable TV. I make sure to watch Bob’s Burgers every week, though! I love it.
What is your favorite song right now?
Believer by Imagine Dragons. It reminds me of Elias from An Ember in the Ashes, and I get all swoony every time *sighs dreamily* (Oops, I managed to bring the topic to books 😂)
What could you do for hours that isn’t reading?
Photography! Even before I got super into Instagram, I would go around with my camera and just take photos of random things.
What is something you love to do that your followers would be surprised by?
I really love going to piano bars, particularly the dueling kind. I can’t play it personally, but the piano is my favorite musical instrument!
Favorite unnecessarily specific thing to learn about?
I wrote a long-form story in grad school about birth control and the effects it has on women’s bodies—known and unknown—and it was just a really interesting topic to research and talk to scientists about.
What is something unusual you know how to do?
I can name each state in the U.S. alphabetically, because I memorized the order when I was in grade school.
Name something you’ve made in the last year and show it if possible.
Do custom Funko Pops count? I didn’t “make” them, but I did put some craftiness into them! Here is my set of the gals from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer (which is book-related again, I know, I can’t help it!)
What is your most recent personal project?
I haven’t technically started yet, but now I want to make custom Six of Crows Funko Pops!
What is something you think about often, maybe while staring out windows?
This is going to sound so cliché, but lately I keep thinking about the future and what I want to do with my life! I can’t decide what exactly I want to do career-wise, or where I want to live, or all of that lame adult stuff.
Something that is your favorite but not obvious.
One Piece is my favorite anime! I don’t think I talk much about manga or anime on here much, but I’m with the Straw Hat Crew foreva.
Say the first thing that pops into your head.
I haven’t had a banana split in a really long time 🤔 (I think about ice cream a lot, tbh)
Alright, so I managed to still talk about books in this tag, but it was a refreshing change of pace nonetheless! If you’d like to participate, link back to me so I can learn more about you!
