Get to Know Me: A book tag

'Get to Know Me book tag'; text is light purple/lavender, outlined in white, overlaying an open book on top of floral/greenery; all is illustrated

“Get to Know Me” is a book tag by Jamie, who originated as a TCG buddy and joined the blogging world a year ago. 😁 She’s suuuuuper nice and comments back (*hint hint*).

Instead of me tagging people, if you want to do it, go for it. 😊

Reading habits

  • Favorite place to read: my chair @ my desk, or in my bed
  • I can’t help reading ahead sometimes; other times I read the last few lines so I know what I’m getting myself into.
  • I prefer physical books, because I have to use a reader strip of sorts2; serif fonts are NOT my friend. Ebooks make that difficult and read longer, and it doesn’t help my lack of reading comprehension skills. I also take notes as I read (words/vocabulary, diction/imagery, etc.) to use as a reference when I write my own stories, and it’s not easy to reference ebooks.
  • Audiobooks: I’m hard-of-hearing and also don’t process verbal text as quickly as I do the written word. It’d be a complete waste of time because it’d inevitably require at least double the time.
  • Book boyfriends/girlfriends: Evelyn Hugo? Yeah, that’s weird. I’m smitten, though! Also Isabel, Jacob Black and/or Gilbert Blythe could totally get it if we did nothing more than cuddle, Alice Cullen, Octavia Blake, and KIZABEL. I need to read more diverse fiction, methinks, to make an adequate judgment call.

My future

  • Marriage: Would like to, but that depends on others, doesn’t it? πŸ˜’
  • Children: I keep thinking I want kids, and then I babysit others’ kids and think, “Omg, NO.” On the other hand, older kids need to be adopted, too. πŸ’β€
  • Career: Not telling ’til it happens, but also: novelist.
  • Where I want to live is a complicated question, agh. 😫
  1. Spanish for “not anymore”
  2. It’s really just the white part of a cardboard bookmark; there’s no highlight thing. I just don’t know what else to call it, so.

I’m glad I’m not the only person that’s not into audio books, people talk about how great they are all the time but… I have difficulty paying attention while listening to things, like conversations or audio, I have to make a genuine effort when I watch tv shows or movies (sort of why I don’t watch much of either even though I want to). So the idea of listening to a book on audio and potentially missing things, I don’t want to even think how many times I’d have to rewind to re listen to parts.

Also yay for adoption! I love kids, but as soon as my second one was out I went and got my surgery and had doctors try to talk me out of it multiple times because I’m so young. Nope, nah, I’m done, thanks.

You should definitely make a post about tv shows because I need more recs. \o/ I am really bad at keeping up with television and feel overwhelmed with so many shows to choose from.

Since I moved to NYC, I’ve been a convert to eBooks, then to audiobooks, but when I’m going through mental fatigue, and having auditory processing issues, it really doesn’t work too well. And I keep on running across books I’m “reading” (via ebook or audiobook) that I’m like “wow I want to READ READ this in a book and underline/take notes but I can’t because it just exists in my phone! Alas.
I see babies in strollers on the streets and I’m like “baww this looks so nice.” And then I come home and kids are running up and down above my head and screeching at 12AM and I’m like “…eh…” Older Kids/Special Needs Adoption is definitely something I want to look into in the future… But in a far… far… future… I’m a kid myself atm. Lol.

[…] my views on teen pregnancy are not extremely horrible because my mom had me at a young age. Now, getting pregnant or sleeping with someone before marriage is not something I plan on doing anytime soon, but […]
