The Get to Know Me Tag

Thanks to Denise at The Bibliolater for tagging me!  I'm the nosy kind of person that loves finding out more about the person behind the blog, so I hope you guys enjoy this, too.

Vital Stats

Name:  Erin
Nicknames:  ET, Bee, Tweety-bird...but mostly just Erin.
Birthday:  April 22
Star Sign:  Taurus.  I'm not sure I totally buy the whole astrology thing, but it's pretty fun.
Occupation:  Does being a high school student count?  


Hair Color:  Blonde.  Not a super pale platinum, though.  It's more...golden?  If life were a YA novel I'm sure that's how it would be described.
Hair Length:  I have pretty long hair.  I think it hits about the middle of my back.  I love braiding my hair, which is why I keep it long despite how tangled and annoying it can get.  
Eye Color:  Blue.  I'm all recessive traits.  
Best Feature:  My hair?  I don't really know...and I don't really care.
Braces:  Got them off last February.
Piercings:  I have standard pierced ears and that's it.
Tattoos:  None right now, but maybe when I'm older.  If I can decide on a design I would definitely want permanently on my skin.  I love tattoos...but it would be an easier decision if I could easily get it removed.  The same goes for hair dye.
Right or Left Handed:  Right.


Best Friend:  You would have to ask my mom.
Award:  Probably one of those participation awards they give to you in preschool for absolutely no reason whatsoever.
Sport:  Dance (which I still do).
Real Vacation:  The first vacation I can remember taking is going back to Disney World after I moved away from Florida to Georgia when I was a kid.
Concert:  Martina McBride.  She was this country star I was obsessed with as a child.


Film:  Probably Frozen and Star Wars:  The Empire Strikes Back.  Anything Disney.
TV Show:  Doctor Who and Buffy the Vampire Slayer are my favorite shows of all time and hopefully always will be.  They're both kind of old and kind of cheesy and entirely amazing.
Color:  It changes every single day.  Today it's red.  Tomorrow, who knows?
Song:  I absolutely cannot choose, but some of my favorite bands/musicians are:  My Chemical Romance, Gerard Way, Christina Perri, and anything on classic rock stations.Restaurant:  My favorite restaurants are local joints I don't want to give the names for, but they're Italian and a diner. 
Shop:  Again, I'm a huge fan of local shops.  But generally anywhere that sells candy.
Book:  Again, it is completely impossible for me to choose one favorite book.  
Shoes:  Converse and combat boots.  


Feeling:  Sleepy.  I think a nap is in order.
Single or Taken:  Single
Eating:  Goldfish
Thinking About:  The AP Language and Composition exam I have tomorrow...
Watching:  Nothing!  I desperately need a new show to binge watch.
Wearing:  Red jeans and a sweater. 


Children:  If you asked me right now I would say hell no, but in 15 years...who knows.
Marriage:  It isn't my goal in life, but weddings are pretty fun.
Careers:  I want to be an author, but before that I might work at a publishing house.  Or for NASA.  I don't know, but I'm sure I'll figure it out.  I mean, that whole "wizard" thing could still work out, right?  
Where you want to live:  Everywhere.  I want to travel the world before settling down, and even then the thought of sitting in the same place forever makes me want to scream.

Do You Believe In...?

God:  Yes and no.  I don't believe, but I also don't not believe.  I consider myself agnostic.  
Miracles:  No.  I'm a bit of a cynic, I guess.  Miracles sound nice, but they aren't realistic. 
Love at first sight:  No.  Definitely not.  
Ghosts:  I like to think they exist.  I kind of like to think everything has the potential to exist out there somewhere.  Our universe is enormous and fantastic, so it's easy to think anything is possible.
Aliens:  Hell yes.  It's kind of insane to me to think that, in our whole universe, we are the only living beings out there.
Soul Mates:  I'm undecided.  It sounds like one of those fanciful notions, but who am I to say they aren't real or not.
Heaven/Hell:  Like I said, I'm not religious, but I'm pretty open to any possibility.
Kissing on the first date:  Why not?
Yourself:  This is kind of broad.  I believe in my ability to succeed.  I also believe in my ability to sit on the couch and watch Netflix for a week.

  1. HESITANT ALIEN IS MY LIFE OKAY. Like if there were any album that described my music taste, it would be that one.
    Goldfish! Man, now I'm craving some goldfish.
    Ahh thank you for tagging me! I've been wanting to do this for a while; it looks like loads of fun.

    Ellie | On the Other Side of Reality

    1. I KNOW I LOVE IT SO MUCH. It's like modern day David Bowie. And my exams are now over, thank god. I can't wait to read your version of this. Thanks for commenting, Ellie!

  2. I think my first award was also those medal thingies they give at school with a purpose that is beyond me. It's pretty to stare at in the house though. Like, "Wow, I have a medal!" when it doesn't really mean anything great. xD

    And wait... you can eat goldfish?! I DIDN'T KNOW THAT. :O

    Also, YAY WE'RE BOTH DISNEY FANS.♥ If only we could binge watch Disney movies together. It'd be so much fun!

    Thank you so much for tagging me! :D

    1. I used to collect so many medals and trophies in elementary school, some for the most ridiculous reasons. And Goldfish as in the cheese cracker things! Not actual fish. What would Nemo think? And YES! I a such a huge Disney fan. Thanks so much for commenting, Mara!

  3. My favorite color also seems to change everyday XD Mostly it's shades of blue though! And nap time is definitely the best. They really recharge the energy! I also want to travel before settle down and take the responsible of being married.... It's just so much fun to travel while you're single, no responsibilities or attached to anyone :D

    1. I know, there are just too many pretty colors for me to definitively choose one. Blue is up there though. Naps are the best, especially after school. But I can't wait to travel the world. I want to see everything there is to see. Thanks for commenting, Tasya!

  4. You can eat goldfish??? The things you learn... I feel the same way about tattoos but not hair dye (obviously). Thank you so much for tagging, Erin. I can't wait to do this tag. <3

    1. Goldfish the cheese cracker things! Not actual fish haha. I love hair dye and tattoos. Thanks for commenting, Anna!

  5. It's almost cruel to even ask for a favorite book! Definitely feel the same about the hair dye and the tattoos..I'm too much of a wimp to have something inked on for my lifetime. But I love the idea of a tattoo...

    Great post!

    1. Isn't it? It's too hard to choose just one. And tattoos are so beautiful, but such a pain to remove. Thanks so much for commenting!

  6. Great post, Erin! I love watching re-runs of Buffy, especially with Angel on there. And I can never say no to a good pair of Converse shoes. :)

    1. Thanks, Jess! Buffy and Angel were the best couple. Thanks for commenting!

  7. Hope your AP tests went well! I have to take my make-up tomorrow and it's all I can think about >_< after this, back to studying! And yes, anything Disney is great ^_^

    - Eli @ The Silver Words

    1. The AP tests were the death of me, but at least they're over, right? I hope your make up went well. Thanks so much for commenting, Eli!

  8. I hope your test went well!
    Disney is the best. Disney forever! Travelling sounds like so much fun, right? It would definitely be an awesome thing to do one day.
    Omg I love your hair. That sounds so strange but it's true. It's so beautiful!
    I agree with you about everything you said - I'm too much of a wimp to even get my ears pierced!
    I love Converse, I wear them all the time - they're so versatile.
    Thank you so much for tagging me, I can't wait to do this - I'm such a nosey person, haha! I loved reading your answers ♥

    1. Disney is and forever will be my favorite franchise. And I can't wait to travel and see the world. And thanks so much for the compliment about my hair! You're always too sweet. Aren't Converse the best? I wear mine so much they're falling apart. I can't wait to read your post, Rebekah! Thanks so much for commenting!

  9. Haha I loved this >> "It's more...golden? If life were a YA novel I'm sure that's how it would be described." Haha so funny!

    I love Star Wars too! Work for NASA? How awesome would that be, I love space and I love finding out when NASA have discovered something new :D

    Nice tag!

    Jordon @ Simply Adrift

    1. Hah, thanks! Isn't Star Wars the best? Maybe if I do end up working for NASA I'll discover that galaxy far, far away... Thanks for commenting, Jordon!
