Hello everyone! I was tagged by Heather (aka The Sassy Book Geek) a while ago to do this tag. Thank you so much for tagging me and I’m sorry it’s taken me a while to get around to it! Better late than never, right? 😉 Anyway, this tag was a lot of fun to do because it gives you guys a chance to (as the name suggest) get to know the blogger behind the books. (I just thought of The King and I, then proceeded to listen to and sing along to ‘Getting to Know You.’)
Let’s jump into the nitty gritty, shall we?
Nicknames: C, CA, Carrie, Peanut, Sunshine.
Birthday: September 4th
Star Sign: Virgo
Occupation: Circulation Desk Clerk
Hair Color: Funny should ask. My natural hair color is dark brown, but I’ve been dyeing it bright red for a couple years now. However, my hair is currently a faded orangey/light brown.
Hair Length: It’s pretty long right now; it goes down to my lower back.
Eye Color: Hazel/whatever color they feel like being that day (my eyes seriously change color).
Best Feature: I like my eyes and my eyebrows (when they’re professionally shaped). I love that my eyes change color.
Braces: Never had them, although for whatever reason I really, really wanted them.
Piercings: Two holes on each of my ear lobes, one in my cartilage/helix, and one on my nose. I want to get my tragus pierced.
Tattoos: Nope. Pretty sure my entire family would kill me.
Right or Left: Lefty all the way!
Real Holiday: I was incredibly fortunate as a kid because my mom worked for American Airlines and my Aunt worked for Walt Disney World. That being said, I went once a year for a good chunk of my childhood. The first time I remember going was just after my sister was born and I was 4.
Best Friend: My next door neighbor. She was born six months after me, and we somewhat grew up together (she ended up moving away).
Award: It was in third grade when my cheerleading squad won first place (twice) at our competitions.
Sport: Technically cheerleading, which I did for six years, but I also played basketball when I was in 6th and 7th grade.
Concert: When I was…6 I was obsessed with Britney Spears, so my mama took me to the B96 Bash. I got to see Britney, Lou Bega, 98 degrees, and a bunch of other people I can’t remember. I had so much fun, but I hardly remember it.
TV Show(s): Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Outlander, Ghost Adventures, Young & Hungry, and Sherlock.
Color: Purple, but I am very picky about the shade.
Song: ‘Love Again’ by Pentatonix.
Restaurant: Honestly? Any place that has amazing french fries. Sooo Arby’s, this local place called Tommy’s Red Hots, and a bar called North Side.
Shop: Half-Price Books, Target, LUSH, and DAVIDsTEA.
Books: Off the top of my head, most definitely the ACOTAR series by Sarah J. Maas.
Shoes: Keds (or the knock offs from Payless) and strappy sandals from F21 (the ones that you buckle around your ankle).
Feeling: Tired. We’ve had gloomy weather and it’s making my super lethargic.
Single or Taken: Single as a Pringle and absolutely ok with it.
Eating: Tea. (Ok, I know it’s not ‘eating’ but I’m still consuming it.)
Thinking About: Finishing this post, what I’m going to eat for lunch, and what posts I need to get done for next week.
Watching: Literally? This screen as a type. However, I’m going to put on a YouTube video in a minute with gameplay of a Chinese horror game.
Wearing: Don’t judge me too harshly but….an Ariel (aka The Little Mermaid) onesie that I got from Target.
Want Children: Yes, I have the number four in my head but I’d be happy with whatever number of children I’m blessed with.
Want To Be Married: Yep!
Careers In Mind: I’d love to be a librarian.
Where You Want To Live: I have a feeling I’d live in the city (Chicago) for a bit, but I think I’d move to wherever my family goes. We’re all so incredibly done with the winter weather.
Do You Believe In
God: It all depend on the day. I believe that their is some kind of higher power out there. Some days I call it the universe, other days I call it God.
Love At First Sight: Nooooo. In fact, I’m that annoying friend that’s always telling my friends to be careful when they’re already in love after a short period of time. Lust at first sight though? Yes.
Ghosts: I do, actually and I’ve witnessed some pretty cool stuff to validate my beliefs.
Aliens: Yes, just because I find it hard to believe that we’re the only living beings in the entire universe.
Soul Mates: I do, I think there’s someone out there whose soul is attached to your own. Whether or not we actually find that person is an entirely different matter.
Heaven: Yes or at least some form of it.
Hell: Maybe not Hell exactly but I’d like to think that the really evil people in life get punished.
Kissing On The First Date: Yes, there are much worse things can be happening on a first date.
Yourself: I try to, but sometimes I just need a kick in the butt.
Tag, you’re it!
If you’ve already done this or don’t want to, that’s totally cool!
