This award’s name is literally the most contradictory because mate if you knew me you would know that I am actually a hurricane vaguely resembling a human shape. I neither neat nor real so I don’t know what I’m doing.

1.What makes you follow a blog?
Ahhh I really don’t like answering this question? I mean…it differs A LOT.
1.THE LOOKS. Sweet smol summer child, when you are little and playing in a cardboard box with your toys, gleefully innocent and the world tells you not to judge a book by it’s cover…well know that THE WORLD LIES. Looks are everything. 2.HUMOUR. This varies from person to person but I am particular to fantastically quirky posts, Tumblr memes and sarcasm. 3.THE PERSON ITSELF.
Just so we’re clear: YOU DON’T NEED TO BE ANY OF THESE. Who am I and why does it matter if I follow you and approve of your blog anyway mate? If YOU love YOUR blog that’s all that matters.
2.If you remember, what was your “gateway” book? The book that launched your love of reading?
I always say Harry Potter because that’s the truth: it got me into reading on my own. But before that there was this book my dad used to read to me before bed called The Wonderful Adventures of Nils (Nils Holgerssons underbara resa genom Sverige this is the original title – it isn’t even in Romanian it’s in Swedish YES SWEDISH). It’s about a boy that travels trough Sweden on the back of a goose. It’s so weird and they stopped reading it to me because it became traumatizing.
3.What’s your favorite and/or least favorite book-to-movie adaptation?
Favorite: How to Train your Dragon (of course just…dragons. but I am rather fond of the smol books too mostly because they are everything I would’ve loved as a child and I’m sad I didn’t discover them sooner).
Least favorite: The non existent Percy Jackson movies that I never mention because they do not exist. THEY DO NOT EXIST.
4.Do you have a “comfort book?” A book you reread when you need a pick-me-up?
I have a LIST of comfort books because I find books comforting and cozy and fictional characters are always better then real people.
Harry Potter, Anna and the French Kiss, The Infernal Devices and Percy Jackson.
5.What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever given or received?
Let’s be real I’ve only been alive for a grand total of 15 years: I don’t have that much secret knowledge about the world. I think you unlock those when you reach the status of adulthood and join some secret adults club (…that’s what happens right?).
But the best thing I’ve come to realize over these years is: Nothing really matters and we’re all going to die.
As uncheerful as that sounds it’s helped me gain confidence and be a kinder person. Existentialism is a blessing and a curse.
6.If everyone you met from now on could instantly know one thing about you, what would you want them to know and why?
That I am very awkward.
We can get that out of the way first so that they have literally 0 expectations. That way I can surprise them later with my winning personality and charms.
7.Is there any sort of random subject/fact/phenomenon that fascinates you?
Very specific regional myths. I spend most of my nights on Wikipedia jumping from weird mythological creature/ghost/paranormal thing to the next because who needs sleep anyway.
(also did you know that in ancient Japan it was believed that there were mythical creatures called a Tsukumogami that are literally possessed tools?…look it up it’s weird I am fascinated and I want one as a pet)
This is the hardest part, I never now who to nominate because I don’t know who would like to be nominated ever (like…do people usually do these things? do they have most of they posts planned? do they just ignore nominations?? am I being annoying by tagging people into stuff?? WHAT AM I DOING??) soooo….I’ll just use this opportunity to shout out some amazing friends:
I have minus 1 inspiration for questions so if you do this feel free to use the same ones!
