This was a Friday Fun feature that was started by Jamie over at The Perpetual Page Turner! She is an amazing blogger with loads of cool ideas for blogger fun, so I hope you enjoy this one! The original title for this feature is “My YA Life In Book Titles”, but since I’m still a Young Adult, I’m going to have to address you in present tense and replace YA with Current. So there you have it, and hope you enjoy this little sneak preview into my (not so) private life 🙂
How would you describe your 16 year old self? Geek Girl. Well I’m actually 16 at this very moment, and yes, I’m quite the geek!
When you look into the mirror what do you see? Pretties. I never really like to think I’m ugly. It’s normal for a high school teen, but there’s bound to be some false humility. I’m not that pretty, but I like to comfort myself, thank you very much.
Your 16 year old outlook on life/motto: Let The Sky Fall. Don’t be afraid to fall, pretty much. Just stand back up and redeem yourself. Got me through loads of shit, that one.
How you think people would describe your personality: Emotionally Weird. I have lots of mood swings, usually ranging from happy to ecstatic.
Describe an insecurity in high school: Is Everyone Hanging Out With Me? I honestly care too much about what other people think of me. I should probably stop D:
Describe your worst trait as a teen: Untamed. I’m a rebel most of the time, and it’s honestly driving my mom nuts 😄
Describe the contents of your diary or journal: Confessions of An Angry Girl. I don’t have one, but if I did, I’d probably pour forth all pent up emotion and spill some top secret beans. Okay, now the idea of this is starting to sound suspiciously tempting.
Your biggest fear: Crossing The Line. I’d hate to displease anyone.
You excel at: Perfect Chemistry. And I mean the subject. I don’t like a lot of science, but this is a significant exception.
You are always concerned about: Pride & Popularity. I’m not much of a socialite, but I befriend a lot of people. I’d like to leave the school remembered after all! I’m not the mean girl type though. My pride is easily hurt.
You think your life is: Something Like Normal. Nothing extraordinary outside of the blog, really—I’m still waiting for something life-changing to happen.
How would you sum up your high school love life? Beautiful Chaos. It was toxic, but I enjoyed every moment of it (yes, family, I had a love life. Deal with it. I still love you). No hard feelings, needless to say.
Describe your most serious boyfriend from high schooll: Fifty Shades of Grey. No, this is not a provocative reference—trying to tell you that he was unreadable, and had about fifty different versions of himself. I’m not even sure if you can classify him under ‘boyfriend’. Probably not, but he was the closest I had to one.
Describe your first kiss: Wicked Lovely. I actually liked that kiss. It probably lasted way too long for a simple peck, but at that moment I don’t think I cared.
Your philosophy on dating/love: Boundless. Let it last, I guess. Love knows no bounds.
Describe your worst breakup: Catching Fire. Okay, perpetual disclaimer. Not sure if you can call it a breakup, but just so I have something to talk about. Anyway, I was burning up at this point. With hate, or anger, or overwhelming sadness, I don’t remember. But I probably bawled for a time right after.
Your relationship with your mom as a teen: Toxic. We’re at each other’s throats almost every day. Either way, I love my mom!
Your relationship with your dad as a teen: It’s Kind Of A Funny Story. This was even more of an emotional roller coaster. It’s indescribably intermittent, really.
What you think about your parents rules: Going Too Far. My parents will kill me. HAHA. I’m pretty much toast if they find their way to this post.
Describe you and your best friend at 16: Best Friends Forever. Totally cliché, but I pinky swore on my life to remain her best friend forever (And I will, you wait and see!)
Your social status: Light In The Shadows. I’m well known, but I don’ thrive in the spotlight. I like to keep to my group of friends, so in that way I guess I stay in the shadows, though every so often, people like to talk about me (rumors in high school spread like wildfire).
Describe your group of friends: The Disenchantments. We’re all quite eclectic—we’re well known, but we don’t quite fit in with the in-crowd. We’re everywhere, and nowhere at the same time, somehow. That did not make any sense.
Your perception of high school upon entering: Truly Madly Deadly. I think it felt like hell to me. I didn’t think I belonged—at least not quite yet.
Your relationship with academics: Out Of The Easy. Definitely NOT easy. I’ve pulled countless all- nighters and failed countless exams. At least my grades remain above average.
Your weekends are: Return To Paradise. These are definitely the best snippets of high school life. Nothing like a good book on a Satuday morning (or a Friday night!)
If your high school life was a movie it would be called: Days of Blood And Starlight. It’s chaos and destruction, but I seem to manage. There are lots of things to look forward to, even if I get stressed out periodically.
A class you wish high school offers: How To Be A Woman. I’m a little girl. I want to be mature enough for my own age, but sometimes it’s hard to live independently when you’ve been sheltered since day one.
Your senior year is: That Time I Joined The Circus. It’s been crazy, so far. I’m actually having lots of fun!
How you feel about the prospect of college: Across The Universe. It seems like a totally different world. New school, new subjects, new schedule, new set of friends, new set of teachers, new me. It’s nervous excitement, really.
How you think your life will be at 27: Picture Perfect. I like to think happy thoughts.
I can’t answer the “Your Life Now” portion, because I’m still a high school student. But maybe in 11 years, I can revisit this post and update it! So now it’s your turn– if you want to do a post like this, don’t hesitate to do so (grab the banner, if you wish). I’d love to know more about you 😉
