Hello beautiful people!
A few weeks ago, I was tagged in the Get To Know Me tag! I freakin’ LOVE tags! They are just so much fun and a great way to connect to everyone in the blogging community!
The wonderful Nikki at The Night is Dark and Full of Books tagged me! She has a fantastic blog! It’s so well organized and full of amazing information regarding books and other fun things! If you aren’t following her already…get over there and do it! Side note, the image above and the featured image are from Nikki’s post!
Alright, here we go!
Nicknames: Bubbles, Holmes, Boo, Jennidot, Jenn Jenn, Hey you
Birthday: March 27th
Star Sign: Aries…but I was born late and I’m told I’m a blend of Pisces and Aries??
Occupation: Currently, I am a metadata specialist and an author liaison (cataloger) for the federal government!
Hair Colour: Brown
Hair Length: Long
Eye Colour: Dark Brown
Braces: I had speed braces in Grade 7 until the end of Grade 9.
Piercings: I recently tried for the 4th time to pierce my ears. So far, so good!
Tattoos: Nope. I want to get my first one next year, which will be a puzzle (for Autism) piece with a floral design and the words “To Infinity and Beyond” for my brother.
Right or Left: Right
Real Holiday: I don’t remember it but my mom has told me the story a dozen times! It would have been to the cottage. My mom and dad were supposed to go with a bunch of friends but my mom cried 5 minutes after leaving me – so they brought me along! Apparently, I was super well-behaved and everyone loved having me around!
Best Friend: This one is tricky, since I didn’t really have friends until later on in life. From what memory serves me, it would have to be Jonathan. He was a boy that lived next door to my Uncle Jeff and Aunt Colie, who I hung out with when I would visit them in the summer. We did so much together, such as spend Christmas together one year and all sorts of fun outdoor activities! We went our different ways when his family moved, but I’ve recently heard he’s doing great! I would like to reach out again, but it has been over a decade so I’m hesitant. I’m so happy to hear he’s doing well, since he was one of the few friends I had during a time when I didn’t know what friends were.
Award: It’s either my vocal award, track and field, or safety patroller award. I don’t know, since I got them all around the same time…
Sport: Swimming for sure! I started swimming lessons at around 6 months old in the baby lessons. I ended up getting all the lessons completed, then moved towards completing my lifeguard training. First sport that I chose to do was rollerblading I suppose. My parents said I taught myself and I went ALL the time. I still love it dearly.
Concert: I think Avril Lavigne but I’m not 100% sure. That’s the first one I can remember anyways! I went with my mom, a friend, and her mom!
TV Shows: I suppose right now my favourite TV shows are The Walking Dead and Attack on Titan. I’ve taken a break from Gotham and The Flash, but I do enjoy those shows as well. Cardcaptors, Sailor Moon, Digimon, and Avatar were my childhood favourites…and I totally re-watch them every once in a while…
Colour: Blue! I love the colour blue, for it reminds me of the sky and of the water. I love all different shades, such as bright blue and the mixture of blues during twilight.
Song: At the current moment, Start of Time by Gabrielle Aplin and Made for You by Jojo Mason. I also really love Kiss Me by Sixpence None the Richer.
Restaurant: This burrito place in Ottawa that makes burritos so good that I teared up the first time I ate one…the lady actually remembers me as the girl who cried after eating a burrito…
Shop: I love Chapters! I revert to a child in that store. It makes me so happy to be surrounded by books and booklovers.
Book: I have three: Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne, The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, and His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman.
Shoes: I really like boots…really cute ankle and slightly above ankle boots. Or those Victorian style but more hipster looking boots! This is why I love the Fall season…I can where them ALL THE TIME!
Feeling: Tired and a little anxious. It’s late so hence why I’m tired. Anxious because I have to find a roommate for my apartment and I’m nervous I won’t find anyone…But also happy since I’m listening to Gabrielle Aplin, who makes me think of fun days in the cottage country exploring life!
Single or Taken: Single
Eating: Nothing since I should be in bed!
Thinking About: I really should make my lunch for work tomorrow…and daydreaming of adventures in a forested area up in the cottage country in small little towns with my friends.
Watching: At this exact moment, nothing for I’m listening to Gabrielle Aplin. In general, I’m watching Attack on Titan and I’m attempting to not re-watch The Walking Dead.
Wearing: A swear, pajama top, and pajama bottoms.
Want Children: Yes, for sure one of my own and to adopt one. Though…I kind of need to find a guy…which is hard since I’m a hermit.
Want To Be Married: Well, yes…please see previous statement.
Careers in Mind: I love my job right now and would love to continue. I would like to one day work for Library and Archives Canada or an Academic Library. When I retire, I would love to volunteer at a local Public Library.
Where You Want To Live: I would love to live in the Muskoka’s (cottage country) or some places in Europe. But the first is a little difficult career wise and the latter is too far from home. So I guess it depends on where I find a permanent job! Hopefully a smaller town, with lots of trees and near water!
Do You Believe In
God: I’m not sure. I believe in something, but I don’t know if it’s God.
Miracles: Again, I’m not sure. I would like to believe there are miracles though!
Love At First Sight: No. I believe in lust at first sight or physical attraction at first sight. How do you love someone you don’t know?
Ghosts: Copying Nikki on this one…only when it’s dark and I’m home alone…like right now…
Aliens: Not the green ones. I believe there’s life on other planets and somewhere else out there.
Soul Mates: No. I believe there are people who touch you in ways others can’t in life. I guess I believe there are multiple soul makes, multiple people who touch you and connect with you on a deeper level than others do.
Heaven: I want to, but I’m not sure. I also wouldn’t necessarily call it Heaven but more a state of being.
Kissing of the First Date: Personally, no. But if you want to, go for it!
Yourself: Sometimes yes, sometimes it’s hard. But I think we all struggle with that, don’t you?
Tag! You’re It!
