|Because I want a bouncy castle at this party|
|Because these make me happy|
Hannah D. asked
Favorite color? It used to be green, but now it's gray and yellow. (Because yes, that's one color)
If you could have any superpower what would it be? Invisibility would be fun! I used to sit in the corner of my parent's bathroom and try to make myself invisible by thinking hard. I think I would pick flying though! Who wouldn't love to fly to places!!!
Why did you start blogging? I had been thinking about the idea for a few months, but then somehow I stumbled on Hayden's blog and Amy's blog. I was fascinated!! This blogging thing looked like more fun than I could imagine!! But then I found the Classics Club! I think that really kickstarted me into blogging! I started out with the idea to post once a week about a letter of the alphabet with a corresponding topic. That didn't happen. I'm pretty happy with what happened instead though! (Also, I wanted to improve my writing skills. I'm not sure how that's gone...)
|This is for Naomi|
It's the second most awkward Kate picture I could find
Do you have siblings? How many? Girls/Boys? Younger or Older? I have 2 younger siblings. A fourteen-year old brother and an eleven-year old sister.
Are you messy or organized? It depends on what we're talking about. I can be both. In theory I'm organized, in practice I'm messy.
Who's your favourite character in Pride and Prejudice? Elizabeth Bennett! Hands down! She seems to be the only one, besides Mr. Bennett who has any sense at all! She's smart and quick with wit, and she always looks out for her family, even though they're pretty much jerks. (Except for Jane. Jane's just in love. Which I guess can make you a jerk sometimes?)
What's your favourite Jane Austen novel? I've read four of the six. Emma is great, but Emma herself is annoying. Northanger Abbey was fun, and Tilney is awesome, but Catherine needed to get some common sense
Do you read many books at the same time, or just one at a time? I made a goal this year to only read three books at a time. It's gone pretty well actually!
Are you an early-bird or a night-owl? I would love to be an early bird, and I get up at six every school day, but my teenage body won't let me fall asleep until 10:30 or 11. Praise the Lord for podcasts I can listen to at night!
|How does this actually stay upright?|
|Naomi really finds the best GIFS|
Cats or dogs? Dogs! Kittens are cute, but cats are just ugh!!! Also, one of my Grandma's cats scratched me when I was little. I'm pretty sure that experience scarred me for life... My family has had two dogs. Both of them were mini schnauzers. Their names were Sir Reginald and Lady Emily (We didn't name them.), but we called them Reggie and Emmy. We had to give Reggie away because he had diabetes, but Emily is still with us! She's as old as my brother though (which is apparently really old for a dog). My dad says it's like living with a crank old woman because she barks all the time and no one can figure out why she's barking. She's also gotten extremely stubborn in her old age...
Superhero fan? If so who's your favorite? I'm sort of a superhero fan in that I can tell you all about the Avengers because of everything I see on Pinterest. I have yet to see the movies, but Captain America is my favorite. Because #MURICA.

Yes, I know that's incorrect grammar, but it adds emphasis!
Dark chocolate or milk chocolate? Milk chocolate definitely!
Would you rather have a dragon or a unicorn as a pet? A dragon because they can fly. And Toothless is awesome!
What is your opinion of makeup? Personally, I don't really like it. I hate having stuff on my skin, so yeah. I wear powder to church and places like that cuz I have acne... So I guess I like it when it covers my acne! However, I don't have a problem with other people wearing it!
What is your opinion of asparagus? I don't know. I haven't tried it, and I don't plan to either!
|This guy looks western. Hamlette likes western stuff.|
Maybe she'll put this in a book...

Have you ever broken a bone? Thank the Lord no! I've sprained an ankle, landed on my head/neck more times than I can tell, and have really bad wrists, but I've yet to break a bone!
What's your least favorite color? Hot pink. Pink by itself is okay, but whenever people use hot pink, they usually use too much....
Do you like hearts or stars better? I'm definitely a star type of girl (And no Elizabeth, I've yet to read Stargirl!) I remember when my first grade teacher taught me how to draw a star. I went home and drew them all over an envelope!
Whose recommendations for books and movies do you trust the most? Mostly bloggers who I know have the same tastes as me. My mom recommends good books too! And I find new old movies from you guys!
|Never fails to make me laugh|
Are you a Princess Bride fan? YESSSS!!!! I've read the book too! It was kinda confusing, but I liked the extra amusing content!
What's the boring-est fiction book you've ever read? Wow! I don't know! Maybe Mansfield Park? (*laughs at Naomi's reaction*) Actually, I haven't finished it yet... Or Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm! (That book is sooooo slow!)
What's the fastest-paced book you've ever read? It would probably be a Nancy Drew or Hardy Boys book! It's literally all go from the first page!! (Sometimes that's a bad thing, but they make it work somehow!) (Also, is the phrase "all go" British?) Or the Bryce and Ashley mysteries!! (HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND)
Do you have a favorite cup/mug? Well, I have my school water bottle? I use that for basically every time I need water, except for a family dinner. It has apple stickers all over it because yeah, I sorta collect apple stickers. DEAL WITH IT.
What's your favorite Gary Cooper movie? *Looks up who Gary Cooper is* *Scrolls through movies* *Hasn't seen any* *Finds Sergeant York* So yeah, it'll have to be Sergeant York.... I barely remember it actually. There was an inspiring Daniel Boone/Bible sequence right? And some guns?
Scenario: you are transported into the book of your choice on one condition--you're poor as Amy Dorrit's dad and running from debt collectors. Which book would you choose and how would you try to support yourself? Which characters would you try to become friends with? Oh. My. Word. This is probably the most entertaining one I've got so far! Thanks Natalie! I would try for The Mysterious Benedict Society cuz those kids are all poor and sorta running from people? I would support myself by saving the world. And I would probably become friends with Kate and Reynie. Or I would pick a Little House book because those people are poor too! I would support myself by homesteading, and become friends with the Ingalls and Mr. Edwards.
Thanks everyone for the questions!! And thanks for sticking around for a year :D
For reals now!
