I suck at coming up with random facts, so I’m skipping that one haha. I also don’t have time to tag anyone and come up with my own questions right now, as I’m in a bit of a hurry to get this scheduled.


If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?

Write, read, blog and take pictures – so basically everything I try to do during the day but don’t always have the time for haha. Not having to sleep would be such a blessing (unless it plays out like that one Fairy Odd Parents episode. Does anyone remember that? That scarred me asdgh)

What does a normal daily routine for a work/school week look like for you?

It depends on how early I have to start at school, but usually I don’t get up that late even if I start later. If I have to go to school early I’ll shower and get dressed first, otherwise I’ll have some breakfast. And by breakfast I mean a banana 🙈 Unless I have to start in the afternoon, then I’ll also eat yoghurt with grapes, strawberries and honey. That early in the morning though, I can’t eat much. Oh and I’ll drink tea! I can’t not drink tea in the morning. I usually check my phone for a bit: important notifications, email and the news. On the train to school I either read, do school work or just listen to music if I’m too tired to do anything.

I feel like that wasn’t every interesting haha

me @ me

What are some of your hobbies?

Other than writing, reading, blogging and photography, I love going to museums, travelling (I’m trying to travel more in my own country since I don’t really have the money to go anywhere else haha), enjoying nature (but not like, hiking. You can’t hike in The Netherlands so I have no idea if I’d like hiking haha), visit historical sites and stuff like that and gaming. My favourite games are Pokemon, Ace Attorney and Animal Crossing, though there are a lot more games I enjoy.

Have you ever climbed a tree?

I highly doubt it lol I have no memory of it and considering the kind of kid I was (when my mom would pick me up at school I would look EXACTLY the same as when she dropped me off that morning. No stains, no ripped clothes – nothing) I don’t think I ever climbed a tree. I think I was too much of a scaredy-cat for that

it me

What’s a pet peeve of yours?

Rude and selfish people kajfhsg Honestly if I ever lose it and punch someone it’s someone who was mean for no frickin’ reason!!

What’s your strongest skill?

me after roasting myself at the ‘what are your bad qualities’ question during a job interview and then suddenly asked ‘what are your good qualities’ like idk man

Are you a late or early sort of person?

Early I guess? I can’t go to bed too late too many times in a row or I’ll feel terrible. I’m a 21-year old granny

I can’t stay in bed too long either because once I’m awake, I usually won’t fall back to sleep and then I get hungry and bored so I get up

What takes up too much of your time?

My anxiety like can it go away

me @ my anxiety who’s now called Kate I guess

What are some small things that make your day better?

Hmm what counts as small things? Because my mom in general, but she doesn’t seem like a small thing? Also talking to my best friend, talking to my lovely blogging friends, watching Brooklyn Nine Nine, listening to Hayley Kiyoko, cute animal videos, getting nice comments on blog posts… Probably some more things that I can’t think of right now. It also really depends on each day? Obviously when I’m really struggling with my mental health small things don’t really help much

Give one interesting fact about yourself

I have NO clue but I can tell you a fun childhood story instead? When I was little I had a toy computer with games on it that thought things like spelling. It was called Eddie and every time you turned it on it would go ‘Hello! Nice to see you again!’ One night my mom heard it saying that so she went to my room, expecting to see me playing with it even though I should’ve been asleep. And asleep I was. Yet Eddie was turned on. So my mom turned it off again. But then she heard ‘Hello! Nice to see you again!’ again, so she took out the batteries. Do you feel where this is going??? She again heard ‘Hello! Nice to see you again!’ even though the batteries were taken out 🙃 I’m not saying Eddie was haunted but Eddie was haunted and I don’t understand why my mom didn’t just throw it out right then and there. I would’ve done it. No ghosts in my house, no sir.

What do you like most about society?

The fact that despite there being a LOT of terrible people in the world, there are still so many lovely people who go out of their way to help and support others. They remind me that humanity doesn’t completely suck

As I said, I won’t be tagging anyone, but if anyone wants to answer these questions feel free to do so! Are you too a granny? Or Piglet? Or, like me, both? Did you have a toy that was most definitely haunted? Let me know in the comments!

    Ahh I didn’t realise hiking isn’t really a thing in the Netherlands! I hope you get to try it one day – I love it although it can be tiring haha. Also that Eddie story sounds like a plot for Doctor Who 😂
