following on from last week's post, i thought i'd address the most frequently [un]asked questions about myself (or ones that have been asked), as i know a lot of you either don't know much about me or know nothing about me other than my name ---
how old am i? eighteen this month. which is ridiculous. i feel much older already.
how tall am i? 5ft. 5ft what you ask - 5ft nothing. i am of diminutive stature, if you want to make it sound more appealing than 'small'.
what personality type am i? infj. apparently only 2% of the population are this personality type - i am a rare breed, feel honoured to know me.
where do i live? england, sadly, for as i am writing this we have just left the EU - and i couldn't even vote. perfect.
what ethnicity am i? mixed asian: half indian, half pakistani.
what religion am i? muslim!
how would i describe myself? 40% sarcasm, 40% stubborn, 20% so-utterly-unsure-what-to-do-with-her-life
what are my favourite books? i have many., that is all.
what books have influenced my work? hmm, in terms of writing: the book thief by markus zusak, daughter of smoke and bone by laini taylor, and six of crows by leigh bardugo. in terms of art and creativity: the sky is everywhere/i'll give you the sun by jandy nelson
what camera do i use? for all the photos thus far on my blog, the Sony Cybershot DSC-H7 or my phone. but hopefully from now on: the Canon 600D+18-55mm lens which i just purchased after years of waiting/saving [if i can ever work out how to use it!]
when did i start blogging? apparently february 2012, which would mean i have been blogging for four and a half years. but i would argue that i only started properly blogging since summer 2012, which would make that four years [see, nearly 18 and my mathematics abilities are stunning].
will i start making videos anytime in the future? i want to, whether that will actually happen is uncertain - i'm definitely going to be making more gifs/stop motion videos and i have started doing journal flip through videos on instagram. it depends what type of videos you would like to see?
in terms of blogging, what are my plans for the future? keep blogging! in terms of content: from the survey results it seems like you want more personal/life updates posts like these; more art/creative posts; more fashion related posts; more photography and travel posts; more writing updates and blogging tips/DIY posts - so basically more everything! a few of you also asked for collaborations/guest posts - so for the whole of july [and perhaps longer] i'm going to be posting guest posts from both bloggers and non-bloggers.
DO YOU HAVE ANY MORE QUESTIONS?
