Hello all!! So this has been a weird month for me, namely cos I’ve hit a *dreaded slump*. Both with my reading and my blogging. Yup- horrifying right?! I didn’t manage to post most of the things I had planned this month, so hopefully June is gonna be super exciting… But since I haven’t been doing as much reading or blogging this month, I think it’s only fair to talk about what I’ve been doing instead with the ANYTHING BUT BOOKS tag!!
Thank you so much to Kat for tagging me to do this one!! For everyone that hasn’t (for some crazy reason) checked her out yet, her blog is incredible, stuffed with brilliant reviews for books *and* TV- plus she’s adventuring round Canada right now, so you have to follow her for all her awesome updates!!
Alrighty then, onto the tag!
1. Name a cartoon that you love.
I’m assuming this counts movies, right? My three favourites are Prince of Egypt, Anastasia and Mulan!
And cos Spring is my favourite time of year, I always try to rewatch these around now (along with getting some great rereads in) #funfact
2. What is your favourite song right now?
Ooh so you guys know how much I like sharing music, right? This question is gonna open up a can of worms, cos I’m listening to a variety of things right now:
I’m obsessed with this soundtrack right now
The original, not the remix
Cos I’ve been watching wayyy too much Supernatural lately…
3. What could you do for hours that isn’t reading?
Writing, watching movies/tv and spend time on here! Right now I’m really into old movies and have watched some excellent classics in the last week:
4. What is something you love to do that your followers would be surprised by?
Hehe the second that I’m asked something like this my mind goes blank!! Exercise, maybe?! Follow sports? I love the tennis and am a *huge* Arsenal fan! Lots of *good thoughts* for the Gunners right now cos we just won the FA cup a record number of times:
(yes, yes, I know you’re all leaping out your seats with excitement for that fun tidbit 😉 )
5. What is your favourite unnecessarily specific thing to learn about?
Umm I don’t know why this is embarrassing for me but recently I’m very interested in learning about psychology…
6. What is something unusual that you know how to do?
Well, I’m not very crafty, but I do like to draw- but I don’t know if that counts cos it’s not especially “unusual”
7. Name something you made in the last year and show us if you can.
Well I’m much too shy for extracts, but I am currently working on a book (until further notice I will always be working on a book of some description 😉 )
8. What is your most recent personal project?
The aforementioned and elusive book.
9. Tell us something that you think about often?
Politics! I really, really try to avoid talking about it on here- even though a fair number of the books I read are influenced by political commentators I follow- but this actually takes up far too much of my time. Just to give you an idea of how obsessed I am, about 95% of channels I’m subscribed to on Youtube are political and I cannot even keep track of how much political commentary I read. To be honest, I’m feeling a bit politics’d-out at the minute, what with the general election coming up, so I think I’m gonna kick the habit for a bit and switch off from it all- it can be really exhausting!
10. Give us something that is your favorite, but make it oddly specific.
I’ve mentioned this before, but I love the feeling when you’re nearing the end of writing something and everything is just coming together and all those carefully laid strings of the plot you’ve left along the way are just waiting to be tied together.
I love that new scent of Spring in the air, just as the season turns, and you know the world is coming alive again with possibilities.
I love that rush I get when I learn something new, but it actually feels like it’s something old that I’ve heard a million times before, and my whole brain just lights up, like YES, THIS IS SO TRUE.
11. Say the first thing that pops into your head.
“We are Siamese if you please…”
(my brain is weird)
Alrighty then- that’s all for now- I tag:
Annnd that’s all for now- can’t believe it’s the end of MAY?!?! Where is this year going? If anyone has any idea how I can contact Time and ask him to slow down, let me know!!
