1. What is your most embarrassing moment to date?

This feels quite unfair๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Anyway, it wasn’t a “moment”. It was a day. That’s right. A whole school day. I go to uni from home. So, I always make sure I dress okay cos there’s no going back to change. That day, it rained – on days like that, I wear dark clothes and shoes that don’t show when they’re dirty – but I forgot that day and I was wearing a pair of white jeans. The butt of my jeans got dirty and as you can imagine, it looked like I was stained. I could barely walk around that day. It was sooo embarrassing. 

Thanks Diana for asking this๐Ÿ˜”

2. What’s the last song you listened to?

I barely listen to songs. I mentioned that in my September 2017 monthly wrap up. So, I have to check my Google Music…..

It was Beneath your Beautiful by Labyrinth ft Emeli Sande. Amazing song! It’s old though. I don’t have a lot of 2017 songs on my phone๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

3. What’s your favourite meme?

I love her and this meme always makes me smile whether I’m angry, sad or down. 

4. Are you a ketchup on top or a ketchup on the side person?

I’m a ketchup everywhere on my plate person๐Ÿ˜

Don’t judge me!๐Ÿ˜”. I love ketchupโ˜บ

5. If you could be any animal, which animal would you be?

A black panther.

No one understands my obsession with them but I love them so much!! They’re so elegant, graceful and beautiful. The kind that will rip out your guts and still look good doing that. Their black fur and eyes are gorgeous. I’ve always imagined having one as a pet and just running my hand through that silky, ink-like fur๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Look at those eyes! Gorgeous๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Is that too much fangirling?๐Ÿค”

No! It isn’t๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜†

6. What’s a book you were requested to read and wouldn’t have chosen for yourself but ended up loving?

This was a hard one. I had to go through my ebook reader very well…

Ohhh and The Infernal Devices Series by Cassandra Clare: I wasn’t sure if I should have added this since my rating for it was 7/10 but for someone that hated Cassandra Clare for a very long time, this is a very big step. 

I just realised that this is actually 5 books…Oh well๐Ÿ˜‰

7. Do you like country music? Tell us why or why not?

Like I said earlier, I barely listen to music and I’ve probably listened to only about 3 or 4 country songs. So, I really can’t say if I like them or not

P.S. I sense some people shaking their heads at my lack of love for music. I don’t think I like that๐Ÿ˜

8. What’s the longest you’ve gone without taking a bath or shower?

This is a very over-the-top question. What did I do to deserve this?

Fine! 3 days๐Ÿ™

9. Do you have a secret talent? If so, tell us what it is.

This is much better!๐Ÿ˜ƒ

*clears throat*

Well….. *indulging in some false modesty*

I’m really good at math๐Ÿ˜Š

Learning math and solving math questions comes really easy to me. It’s most likely because I was raised with math instead of dolls. Solving math problems during the holidays since I was young has made me almost resistant to the frustration usually accompanied with the subject.

Do I hear disgruntled sighs? Were you expecting something more interesting? Well, I’m a very boring person. My twin sister can draw, paint, sew, knit, bead, cook and a host of other things. I’m stuck with mathโ˜บ

10. Would you rather never be able to say “thanks/thank you” or “please”


I like thanking people when they do something nice for me. It makes me feel good and I know it makes others feel good too. “Please” is overrated๐Ÿ‘€

11. What are your thoughts on One Direction? Do you hate them or love them?

To be brutally frank, I really don’t care about them. I don’t love or hate them. 

They’re just 1D; a huge band sensation.

I don’t think I’ve listened to any of their songs๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

And that’s it!

      Thank you so much for the nomination. Your skill with math reminds me of how much I used to love it during my years in school… until I got into university and my only statistics class was the equivalent of Hell. Also, thereโ€™s no shame in not listening to a lot of music ๐Ÿ™‚ Iโ€™ve always wanted to read TID, but like you I really donโ€™t like CC.

        You’re welcome and I dislike statistics too๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. Pure math is my thing. Oh, I don’t feel shame about it. It’s a weird part of me. The TID series aren’t bad though and yes, I disliked Cassie for a very long time. It stemmed from the fact that I felt The Mortal Instruments series was horrible and I was so angry that everyone liked it๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

      First of all, congratulations! That’s awesome.
      And now I will answer one of your questions.
      My last birthday was actually on the first day of finals, so I spent most of the time studying, so obviously, I would change it so it wasn’t on finals. But Spinette and I did go to IHOP, which was fun.
