Colleen’s Questions

What’s the funniest word in the English language?

Schadenfreude, which means pleasure at someone’s bad luck or misfortune.  I just think it sounds interesting and it’s really fun to pronounce!

What’s the funniest joke you know by heart?

What did the wave say to the other wave? Nothing, he just waved!

Yeah I know it’s not funny or anything but it’s the only joke I know.

If you could have a never-ending candle that smelled like anything you wanted, what fragrance would you want it to be?

I don’t like candles very much, but I do enjoy ocean breeze, freshly baked bread, and the aroma of fresh flowers.

What are you most looking forward to in the next 10 years?

I am looking forward to learning to drive a car, getting my own apartment or house, and going to college. I would also love to travel the world and go to numerous exotic destinations. If you have been reading my blog for a while, you would know that I have a fondness for globes and all things relating to traveling!

Would you rather go hang gliding or whitewater rafting?

Whitewater rafting! It sounds very exciting and I’ve always wanted to do it!

What was the best book or series that you’ve ever read?

Too many! Some of my favorites YA books are To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, The Hate U Give, and anything Rainbow Rowell…ya know, the basic stuff. 😉 I am also a huge fan of fantasy novels too, including anything Cornelia Funke and (obviously) Harry Potter.

What would be your first question after waking up from being cryogenically frozen for 100 years?

Probably something along the lines of ‘why am I here’ or ‘what happened’, I’m not really sure.

What songs have you completely memorized?

I have memorized Vienna by Billy Joel and Walt Grace’s Submarine Test, January 1967 by John Mayer. There are countless other songs that i have somewhat automatically memorized the lyrics to, but these are just off the top of my head.

Are you usually early or late?

If I have an intense/well-planned schedule that I can adhere to, I’m early. If I don’t, since I’m such a daydreamer, I will lose track of time completely. That’s why I love my bullet journal so much!

What would your perfect room look like?

No clutter, lots of cute clothes, and aesthetic. I don’t care what aesthetic, it just has to be aesthetic. 😂

💛Day-Dreaming💛

This one is kind of cheesy, but whatever! Daydreaming is enjoyable and a great way to get good ideas.

You get idea from daydreaming. You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time. 

The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we’re doing it.

📝Poetry + Writing📝

As many of you already know, I am not only an avid reader, but a writer. One of my favorite types of writing is poetry. Although I rarely write poetry, I think it is beautiful.

🌎Globes🌎

Globes may seem like a random, insignificant household object, but oh boy, you’re wrong. Globes tell the story of the earth. It’s lakes, mountains, oceans, deserts, you name it. It is a tangible display of humanity’s regime on planet earth and a precise graph of existence and space. Wow, I am such an intelligent, observant scholar. You can find the timezone of a certain location in comparison to another. And, one can even see the center of the world.*

Also, it spins.

I find this extremely entertaining.
*Fun Fact: The center of the world is where the Equator and the Prime-Meridian meet, off the coast of West Africa

🌿Plants🌿

Person: Globes and poetry? And now plants? Wow, Katie needs to get out more no offense…

Me: Excuse me? Globes are awesome, poetry is beautifully artistic, and plants are amazing.

Person: *Coughs in spite of all the smoke because oooooof they got roasted so hard by Katie That Bookish Girl herself. Call 911, the world is on fire. 🔥

Just kidding, that wasn’t a roast, but globes, poetry, and plants are superb. First of all, plants are great for maintaining and keeping safe, refreshing, air quality levels in your home. Plants are also decorative and look good on a desk or a table. Not only that, but plants require little attention and care. All that is needed is a small amount of water every day, depending on what type of plant you are purchasing.

Just now realizing that in the paragraph above I sounded like a salesmen at Home Depot or Lowe’s.

I have a houseplant on my desk named Josephine (yes, I name my plants 😂) and I really enjoy having her.

📺The Office📺

This one should be pretty obvious because I used a little bit of foreshadowing expressing my love for The Office a GIF ago.

My favorite character is, without a doubt, Pam Beesely.

Also Jim and Pam are sooooooooo perfect together. Whenever they’re on-screen together, my inner fangirl swoons inside.

💻Blogging💻

I love blogging so much and think it is a great way to express yourself through writing and get recognition and feedback for your work. Also, the blogging community is so supportive, accepting, and kind.

Thank you to all the wonderful bloggers out there who make the blogosphere such a positive place.
