Hiya amazing popcorns! (proud to be a popcorn! ❤ ya Ambs!)
You might be looking at the title and wondering what the heck is this crazy girl talking about? for one of two reasons: it’s been a while since my original Q&A post came out and you totally forgot about it. Or you’re one of the fifty followers that has joined our wee little corner over here since then (aka it’s been a loooong time) *hides face in shame* (also why does it feel like I’ve been apologizing a lot lately?? oh right. because I missed my posting time. twiiiice) <<< I wrote this all in June. So. Read below for some mind-blowing facts!
Um. Wait. Do my eyes deceive me??? OR DOES MY FOLLOWER COUNT SAY 108!!! I DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW THIS HAPPENED WHAT THE HECK WAIT WHO ARE THESE WONDERFUL PEOPLE! My WordPress reader never showed them! It says I still have 99…. WHAT THE ACTUAL HECK.

Ok, well, on to the post! >>>>
P.S. Remember when I wrote:
I’ll be taking questions until… *quickly looks up calendar* Saturday June 15th! I’ll probably post my answers the day after or some Sunday afterwards. Eh, I’ll figure it out.
Hah. Hahaha. Riiiight. Heh, it’s like mid July and my answers are coming only now?? Oh well 😀 that’s okay!
P.S. THIS IS YOUR FAULT GUYS. TOO MANY QUESTIONS ASDFGHKL; Wait don’t listen to me! I loved allll the questions, DON’T listen to that!!! (wth am I doing with my life)
What is your least favorite thing to do?
Um. I don’t know?? But if I had to say something, it would probably be dance practice. IT’S JUST SO ANNOYING OKAY. Don’t judge, children.
What is something you never leave home without?
One of my bags. My trusty ol’ cross-body purses. They contain my phone, usually some mints, a pen/pencil, a scrap of paper, and random supplies that’ll prove useful in a zombie apocalypse. Someday, I say. Someday.
What is one book that you’ve read that is unappreciated?
Goshh, there’s a lot of these 😀 Maybe Counting By Sevens? It’s popular, but not popular enough for its amazingness 😉
What is one book you’ve read that you haven’t liked?
Divergent. DIVERGENT OK. I just hated it and I can’t even explain why but I did. Ok, that’s good we’re done here 😉
Do you bullet journal/ have you ever considered it?
Aha, I actually just. started! Like, two days ago. I might share a post on it once I get it completely set up! <<< haha, no. That was written a week ago, before I decided that bullet journaling wasn’t for me and I gave up. So motivated.
What’s a book in your favorite genre that you absolutely hate?
Ah I actually don’t know?? I really don’t “hate” many books, and Divergent is just yuck, but I don’t hate many books? So I don’t know lol.
What’s your dream career?
Ah. I have my whole freaking life planned out, so. Author + Blogger + Side Hobby is acting. And I teach Carnatic music 🙂 because my life wouldn’t be complete without it! Maybe, if this isn’t very practical, medical research. But mehhh.
.What is your opinion on dark chocolate? 😉
YES. YES YES YES YES YESSSHH. Dark chocolate is lifeeeeeeeeeee. Need I say more?
What’s your best childhood memory?
Um, I have a lot! Probably playing outside with my BFFs until 9 PM in summer, or climbing the trees of our old house, watching the cricket world cup twice (India won once!!! and they better win again!!! King Kohli, go Bumrah! I’m a crazy fan, which you wouldn’t expect, but yeah lol), great times with my cousin who is still one of my closest friends, and many many more!
What’s a movie you cannot stand?
The Good Dinosaur. Please. Just- just no.
If you were a boy for the day, what would you do?
Besides the obvious, and slightly disturbing and embarassing (you know what I’m talking about- you really do) 😉 I would practice using the bathroom and try to keep it fairly mess free (I just had the weirdest thought- imagine how hard it would be for guys to get potty trained! O.o). I’d also just enjoy like strutting around and beating my chest like a gorrilla. I don’t even know why?? Maybe it’s because I can’t do that anymore 😦 puberty sucks, my friends (that’s not even the worst of it! I can complain allll day about periods ok)
Go try hot sauce on a grilled cheese sandwich and tell me what you think.
This isn’t even a question, Isa! XD But I did it- and my oh my it was much better than I expected! Definitely give it a try, everyone!
Sophie @ T.O.M’s Questions:
If you could only read one book, listen to one song and eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?
Wow, great question! I would read Counting By Sevens over and over again so I would have to motivation to live (this isn’t even funny though), listen to a song that none of you have heard of, guarenteed: enna thavam seidhane, sung by MSS particularly (I reallyyy love Carnatic music. I don’t listen to much English music, but I literally couldn’t live without Carnatic music. and this song is just so meditative and beautiful I might cry), and I mean, if I’m being honest, I would eat Thai fried rice.
Coffee or Tea?
Haha, tea. I’ve only had Indian-style coffee, but I don’t like it much. It’s kinda addictive though… not good! I love boba tea, though *insert heart eyessss* which El definitely knows! 😂
Sweet or savoury?
Sweet, savoury- both are great! But I’ll have to err on the sweet side, primarily because… *has no good reason* WHOOPS! The brownies are burning, I’m out!!
What is something you wish more people knew/did?
I wish more people actually knew about Indian culture, especially the beautiful music- and no, I’m definitely not talking about Bollywood! That’s not classical, and I’m particularly talking about Carnatic music. Just, actually, search up enna thavam seidhane by Ranjani and Gayathri. I honestly feel so weird typing this right now.
Reading or writing?
What’s one thing you think you can do to change the world?
I think I can spread awareness about many wrongdoings and raise money to help the needy. I can also do so much just with the power of the pen, and I really want to! I recently joined a teen-run organization that Gracie definitely knows 🙂
If everyone in the world was listening to you for 5 minutes what would you say?
Everyone is equal. We are all valuable and loved. Please do not discriminate based on any physical features or mental capabilities. Everyone, know that you are beautiful.
And along the line of that. This question is wonderful, Gracie!
If you could have dinner with any six people who would they be?
Um… I don’t know?? Maybe Michelle Obama, Mahatma Gandhi, Rick Riordan, and I really don’t know?? Any suggestions?
If you could have coffee with any six fictional characters who would they be?
Um. Same dilemma, folks! Maybe The Seven from HoO minus Jason *cries* I feel bad though! For multiple reasons *cries again* (people who haven’t read the recent ToA book well you don’t know)
If you could teleport anywhere in the world and take two people with you, where and who?
My brother, hands down, I love him to pieces. And my mom? Or dad? I’m not going to be like “oh, Queen Elizabeth!” because I literally don’t know her. I can’t survive without my family, people.
What is something your readers probably don’t know about you?
Well, there’s a lot, but not necessarily the most interesting? Ok, well, I’m technically a published author (and so is Vaish! right?) in an anthology but my writing was/is trash so I’m definitely not telling you guys anything else lol!
Oh, and speaking of that, I’m doing a suuuuppperrrr fun writing workshop this week WITH A REAL LIVE AUTHOR. HANNAH JAYNE!!! She’s so fun and amazing! Also, her girlfriend is April Henry WHAAA I ACTUALLY KNOW APRIL HENRY! So cooolll! And I started my latest novel (don’t give up, future me!) so yay!
Your funniest memory?
Hmm… probably that time when my four year old brother ran down the steps naked to greet my friend/ cousin. XDDDDD
If you could meet anyone famous, who would you meet and why?
In the past? Mahatma Gandhi. I have so much respect for him, I really do. Today? Michelle Obama, just because she’s done so much for the community and I really feel like she’d be interesting to chat with!
Is the book or its movie better?
Ha ha ha.
You know you’re talking to ADITI, right? Well, I shouldn’t even need to answer this question, so. Yeah. But I know Grace already knows the answer XD
Dark or milk or white chocolate?
Am I the one person whose least fav is milk? I mean, it’s still wonderful, but the other two are even better!
How would you describe your style/aesthetic in three words?
I mean, I hope so!!
How would you describe your personality in three words?
Um, same thing I believe… wow I’m so boring XD.
How has your blog changed since you started blogging?
It’s changed SO MUCH. Like, don’t even go back and read my posts, please! I was so bad, and now I’m a tad bit better, but it’s now a lot prettier (thanks Lilian! and me sorta and Grace and Vaish for your wonderful graphics!) and a lot bigger. One in a Million’s grown a lot!! Have I mentioned howww thankful I am to all of you?
How has blogging changed you since you started blogging?
I am now a wiser person (XD so vague), but mainly I realized that I have found such an amazing community that will support me no matter what.
And I found my voice. I’ve been searching for it for so long, but I was never able to write good novels- but I love to blog! I have a hands on blogging approach, so I’m able to interact more than one-sidedly put content out there without immediate feedback (so impatient lol).
El’s Questions (btw love yaaa!):
If you could take over anyone’s blog, whose would it be?
Ok, hands down, Vicky’s. Vicky Who Reads is such a wonderful book blog! I really enjoy reading her writing and she’s so inspiring! I of course would love to take over all of you guys’s blogs (MWAHAHA) (that sentence was so ickkk), but more than anything, Vicky’s!!
Oh wait, I forgot. The right answer is “I love you guys so much! I would NEVER trade this blog for anything…” but actually, I wouldn’t. I’d just take both 😉
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be??
Ah. ELLLL WHYYYYYYY. Ok, fine, Thai fried rice. BUT WHYYYYY
If someone was gonna write a book based on/taken inspiration from one of your posts which one would you point them to? & if you want, give us a brief story plot/synopsis!
Um. Here: Story Prompt #1
It’s pretty self-explanatory, lol. 😀
What’s your favorite fairy tale?
Well, the one you showed me, Becky! That one is so great. And yes, I shall make you find her blog and find the post SHE’S AMAZING DO ITTT. Also Aladdin 🙂 also because of Becky- SEPIDEH AND THE JENIE YESSSSS.
What fictional character do you most relate to?
Ack, this is hard! Probably a combo of Keefe from KOTLC, Hermione from HP, Annabeth from PJO, Maya from This Side of Home, and a billion other characters!!! Basically all the nerdy ones and all the smart ones and all the goofy ones who love their friends to pieces and honestly don’t get enough love.
Whoa that was kinda deep!
Ice cream or cake? (I know, I’m asking the hard question)
AHHH WHYYY BECKYYY I thought we were friendsss! I must run away now to escape the anticipating glares and BYEEE-
What sort of clothes do you like? Any particular fashion styles you’re drawn to?
I. I like… um, good clothes? El, help me out! 😂 We talked about this and we both basically said we like looking good. BUT NO NEON.
Do you prefer to wear jeans/trousers or skirts?
Pants, please! Basically trousers lol. Jeans? I’m wearing them right now because I somehow find soft jeans yay! Skirts? I wear them sometimes, but not preferred over pants or shorts!
Which is your favourite ice cream flavour?
What’s your bigger dream?
Ok, this is so vague, but I REALLY want to make a difference. I want to give back to Mother Earth and to the communities that nurtured me and helping me thrive and grow. I want to help others get the same opportunities I got, which I’m so thankful for, and I want to help others have even better lives than me.
What is your favourite book?
HAHAHAHHA nice tryyyy! I can’t even answer this question- I just can’t. But kudos for trying, Ambs! 😉
Do you have morals in life?
Yesss. Here are a few of mine: treat others the way you want to be treated. don’t discriminate based on physical features or mental capabilities. neverrrr eat meat unless it’s a life or death situation. all life is valuable.
I’m a strong believer that all life is valuable including animals and plants so you should try to minimize the harm that you do to the environment by at least not eating meat, and eating organic and environmentally-friendly sourced foods.
What do you think about the generation nowadays?
We’re so corrupted, it makes me really disappointed. However, we’re also making lots of changes to our world, good and bad, and people are growing. But since I’m here, all’s well 😉 jkjkjk!
Sophie @ Me and Ink’s Questions:
What is one of your favourite ships?
My two favs: PERCABETH and Solangelo!!! Yes, I’m a demigod and yes I’m a fangirl of a children’s series but I don’t care!!!
If you could have any superpower what would it be?
The power to teleport *thinks back to running a mile in PE* YES
Hardback or paperback?
Mhm, it depends. Paperback because it’s more compact and it’s really lovable and you know what I mean? I ran outta words lol. Hardback is great because COVER JACKETSSS ARE LIIIIFEEEE 😀
Series or standalone book???
Once more, it depends 😀 If it’s fantasy, I prefer series. If it’s contemporary, I prefer standalone although me after reading an amazing book would beg to differ. 😂
WHOA. THAT’S A LOT OF WORDSSSS (do you see why I procrastinated for so long? THIS IS WHYYY)
But I’m sooo grateful for each and every one of you! BTW WordPress is glitching recently and I’m not getting notifications for some likes and comments so I’m SOOO sorry if that happens!! Just keep trying and it’ll get through!!
Ily all 😀
