Fridaaaayy!! woohooo! How are you? What are you going to do this weekend? I’m planning to play Final Fantasy XIV, read and relax painting with watercolors.
My friend Angelica from The Geeky Contralto nominated me and I’m so happy! Thank you!!. She has everything I like: book reviews, music content, art content, she loves The Phantom of the Opera and she re-introduced me to the wonderful world of Vocaloid! (I started listening to it many years ago and it didn’t sound as cool as it does now, it was worth giving it a second chance!). Please, check out her blog there is also Kpop and many geeky things! \o/

~Angelica’s questions for me ~
How long have you been blogging?
1 year and like 1 or 2 months!
What inspired you to start your blog?
I’m a hardcore introvert, but I’m fully aware that socialization is needed. So, a blog sounded like a safe place to practice talking to people. The first months I got quite nervous every time I got a comment, just like in real life, but little by little it got better! \o/ so yep, it does help.
Second reason was that I wanted to promote books. I believe people should read more. Doesn’t matter if it is fiction, non fiction, manga… seriously, I have learned about many serious subjects from mangas. Like Robert Henri mentions in his book The Art Spirit: “Novels are sometimes more historical than histories. We read books. They make us think. It matters very little whether we agree with the books or not.”
Third reason was to keep myself accountable and motivated to read and create content. I have had my depresso moments, but having a blog sure helps to keep you motivated, productive and away from nasty thoughts 😉
What’s your favorite blogging memory?
When Nesha followed me, not so many days after I started blogging, and it made me laugh so much that “senpai” was following me. I even made an impromptu drawing for twitter.
What’s your favorite movie that came out this year?
Haven’t gone to the movies this year, actually last time I went, I watched Episode 1, gasp. I wasn’t kidding when I said I was a hardcore introvert. Oh, I’m also quite cheap, hahaha!!
Would you rather have your favorite book be turned into a movie or a TV show?
TV shooooowwww!! so that it lasts longer. Actually, I know The Raven Boys will become a Tv show (Netflix I think?) so I’m super excited! but yeah, I better finish reading the series first.
What’s your voice type (soprano, alto, tenor, etc.) if you know what it is?
I have no idea 😦 I would love to know! All I can tell is that this (video) is quite similar to my voice, I don’t know how to sing the ornamentations but oh how I would looove to!. I have had a soft spot for Irish singing since I was a kid.
What’s your opinion of electronic music?
I LOVE most of the electronic music styles, except for Trance and House (they make me anxious, like when someone scratches a blackboard with a fingernail). My favorite artist is Robert Miles (RIP).
Have you ever left the country you were born in?
Yep, I traveled with my parents as a kid. I was born in Mexico but now live in Finland. I miss some things, while others I’m really happy I don’t have to deal with anymore. Would be awesome to work and travel around the world, like, move to a different country every 2 years. Enough time to get to know the culture at a deeper level but short enough not to grow roots.
What’s your favorite subject in school?
All of them, ha! I bet you weren’t expecting to hear that. I’ve always loved learning, I just hated being graded. If I must choose only one subject, that would be Theory of Knowledge (from the IB program)
Is there a hyped book, movie, or TV show you really dislike?
This is probably the hardest question. I can usually find something positive. For example, I disliked the gore in Deadpool, that was a total no no, BUT I admit that the humor was great.
What was your favorite book as a kid?
The Innocence of Father Brown
~ My 11 Questions ~
If you were given the choice to take care of a 6 year old child or 2 Siberian Huskies for 3 months, which option would you choose? Why?
Lets assume you stole a bottle of life elixir (from that world inside your wardrobe or your last trip to Hogwarts) and it will make someone live without any illness or pain until they are 100 years old, when they will die peacefully. Who would you give it to or would you drink it yourself?
Have you had days when you see repetitive numbers everywhere? (like, you notice is 11:11 and then you read a blog post that says 11 questions to 11 people, then you check your email and it says you have 1 new message and 1 spam message and you are like “omg I see 1’s everywheeere”)
What do usually do to de-stress?
Have you ever won a contest?
What is you favorite time of the year?
Handmade gift or gift card?
What was the last book you read?
If I was visiting your country/ city, what kind of food should I try first?
What is your favorite game?
Tell me 3 things that have happened to you this week, that made you happy.
