Stolen from Maribeth. 😉
Five Things You’ll Find In My Purse:
ONE: My wee Moleskine notebook. It’s crammed full of story ideas and thoughts from years back – and I add to it all the time. Absolutely indispensable.
TWO: A small, pink Bible. It’s my church Bible. I got it for free at a thrift store and it’s very cute.
THREE: My library card. (Plus two other library cards from other places I’ve lived. I collect them.)
FOUR: A little booklet of Bible verses for memorization.
FIVE: A green tartan-covered compact mirror that I almost never use because I don’t wear makeup.
Five Things You’ll Find In My Bedroom:
(In my bedroom proper, I only have my bed and my clothes. #boring All the good stuff is in the hallway outside, so I’m going to talk about that. Though I do have a rather awesome Captain America poster on my bedroom wall.)
ONE: A desk stuffed with mugs, papers, notebooks, headphones, random bric-a-brac, and a WWII-style “Join the Women’s army!” poster.
TWO: Allll my lovely books. Sometimes I just look at them and sigh with happiness.
THREE: A white (well, grey now) rabbit named ‘Cream’ (lol – I was so imaginative) which has been with me since I was Very Small Indeed.
FOUR: My collection of action figures and Funkos that mean a great deal to me. I still need to get one of Edmund Pevensie and John from BBC Sherlock…
FIVE: A framed movie still of Henry Fonda. ❤
Five Things I’ve Always Wanted To Do:
ONE: Meet Julie Andrews.
TWO: Have my book, The Darkness is Past, traditionally published.
THREE: Spend the entire day in a library.
FOUR: Own a cat of my very own.
FIVE: Meet all my internet friends in person.
Five Things That Make Me Feel Happy:
ONE: Studio C. My sister and I tend to binge watch their sketches (catching up on all we missed) and though I think their jokes have a tendency to outstay their welcome, they’re still awesome. I have so many favorite videos of theirs.
TWO: Earrings. I don’t wear a lot of jewelry but earrings are quick to put in and there are so many pretty ones. Just switching them out makes me feel new, in a way.
THREE: Nadine Brandes’ newest book, Romanov, is coming out in less than a month! (May 7th, to be exact.) And not only that…Finale, the last book in the Caravel trilogy, is releasing on the same day!!! I cannot wait.
FOUR: Celebrating birthdays. (Whether my own or someone else’s.)
FIVE: Running this blog. I love writing posts, sharing my thoughts with the world, and interacting with all of you. We’re on track to hitting 400 followers, which is amazing/unbelievable. Love you guys! (And, yes, there will be an epic giveaway when there’s 400 followers.)
Five Things I’m Currently Into:
ONE: Villains. Muahahaha. In all seriousness, I recently watched ‘Maleficent’ for the first time (great movie!) and it got me thinking about all the villains I like and why I like them and why villain-narrated stories appeal to me. I feel a blog post coming on…
TWO: The soundtrack for ‘Mary Poppins Returns’. I’ve been humming, singing, and listening to the songs a LOT. They’re so good.
THREE: Taking pictures of my family’s cat. Because why wouldn’t I?
FOUR: Doodling. I have some great gel pens and whenever I’m bored, I tend to default to drawing houses, women’s faces, and eyes. (Someone needs to psychoanalyze me.) I also enjoy writing random words in my very best cursive and scribbling down story notes and to-do lists.
FIVE: ‘I Can Only Imagine’, the movie. I might write a review about the whys and wherefores of my (very unexpected) liking for this movie if y’all are interested.
Five Things On My To-Do List:
ONE: Finish the third draft of The Darkness is Past by June 30th. (I asked one of my friends to give me a deadline + be my alpha reader because otherwise I won’t get the draft finished until next year probably. Drafting is going well so far.)
TWO: Get back on track with my Goodreads reading challenge. I’m one book ahead right now but I like a little more of a cushion. That’s where Trixie Belden books come in handy, lol.
THREE: Write more bookish blog posts.
FOUR: Spend less time wasting my time. *the eternal struggle intensifies*
FIVE: Make myself a coffee as soon as I publish this post.
