Brad’s questions:

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN BLOGGING? 

I have been blogging since December 2016! So, almost a year and a half.

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS FROM NOW?

Hopefully graduating from university.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?

Usually, I get kind of lost as to what to do when I have spare time. I like trying to learn different types of dance, running, lifting, or drawing! Those are my favourite things to do.

HOW MANY COUNTRIES HAVE YOU VISITED?

I’m not entirely sure about this one. I believe 4. Canada, The United States, The Caribbean Islands and Mexico. More to come, though!!

DO YOU ENJOY SPORTS? IF SO, WHICH IS YOUR FAVOURITE?

I haven’t played that many sports but hope to try some and find one that I like soon! Besides dance, of course. That would be my favourite.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE SUBJECT IN SCHOOL?

Biology!

WHAT IS ONE BLOGGING TIP YOU HAVE FOR FELLOW BLOGGERS?

Be friendly and supportive of other bloggers. It builds the community, helps you get more views, you can make new friends and reading other people’s blogs is often pretty inspiring.

WHAT GOALS DO YOU HAVE FOR YOUR LIFE?

There are so many! I am going to be kind of cheesy and say to help others.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE DRINK?

Tea or coffee. Spiced teas are my favourite and just plain black coffee.

HOW MANY SIBLINGS DO YOU HAVE?

I have one sibling.

DO YOU PREFER PURCHASING THINGS ONLINE OR FROM A STORE?

Online for sure! I talk about purchasing clothes online vs in person in a post here.

  1. What’s your star sign? Aries! All fire.
  2. Would you rather live in the country or the city? I wanted to live in the country for awhile and have a little farm but the more I think about it the more I think I wouldn’t want to do that because I stay indoors too much and wouldn’t want to do the work, so probably the city where I could be more social.

  4. Apple or android?😋 Apple.

  7. Which do you enjoy more – Maths or English? Math! I don’t really like math but I really don’t like English.
  8. Coffee or tea? I love both too much so it’s depending on the day.
  9. Would you rather watch a movie or a series? Series! I usually fall asleep or lose interest in movies.
  10. How do you imagine people see you? That depends on the situation, sometimes shy, sometimes bossy.

 

Rebecca’s questions

  2. Do you have any pets? Yes! Two cats and a dog.
  3. Do you have a hidden talent? If I knew what it was it wouldn’t be hidden.
  4. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go? Ahhh this is hard. I did a post on the top 5 places I would like to go!
  5. What Is a TV show you could watch again and again? Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I. Love. It. So. Much.
  6. If you could interview one celebrity who would it be? Probably Beyonce because it’s Beyonce.
  7. If you could be any superhero who would you be? I don’t really know superheroes so I will be my own one.
  8. Where do you see yourself in 5 years’ time? I kind of have no idea. Living in the now.
  9. What is something you’re proud of in your life? Anything I can be proud of, I probably am.

Liebster Award ( Tag Tuesday )

Sorry for not really posting last week! I wasn’t feeling very motivated to do anything but hopefully, I should be a bit more back on track now.

 

I was nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Beatrice and Janah! Thank you so much, you two! If you haven’t seen their blogs yet I would check them out.

 

What is the Liebster Award?

It’s an award that’s given to bloggers by other bloggers–it’s basically the internet’s version of the Emmys (I guess). It’s a great way for bloggers to discover new blogging friends and support others in the blogging community. The word Liebster is German for sweet, kind, nice, dear, beloved, lovely, pleasant, valued, and endearing, along with a few other really nice words, so…it’s truly an honour.

 

Rules

1.) Thank the person who nominated you and provides a link to their blog site. (If you accept the nomination, please notify me so I don’t miss your post! 😉 )

2.) Answer the questions from the nominee.

3.) Nominate other bloggers and write them several new questions.

4.) List the rules and display the Liebster Award logo on your post.

 

Beatrice’s questions

1.) What’s your favourite TV show? Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt!

2.) What do you do after a stressful day? Make a cup of tea, sit in bed, watch Netflix, and maybe message one of my friends to talk about the day or just to talk.

3.) How do you motivate yourself on days when you don’t feel the motivation? I really struggle with this so I would probably just stay unmotivated lol.

4.) What are the top three things you love about yourself?  

  1. I think my eyes look cool and eyes are just fascinating.
  2. I’m pretty confident and I’m not too sure how, so I love that it didn’t seem to take a lot of work.
  3. I love that I generally work very hard.

5.) What do you think about Into the Shadows? 😉 Looks good! I’m so impressed when people write books.

 

Janah’s questions

MY QUESTIONS:

  1. Pick a word that best describes the Internet. Insane.
  2. What is the most offensive thing someone has said to you online? I’ve been very lucky and people have generally been super nice to me online and if they haven’t I don’t remember it.
  3. What is your phone model and what’s the best thing about it? I have an iPhone 6S I believe. My favourite thing is the sparkly case I have, right now.
  4. What is your most used social media platform? Snapchat.
  5. If you were to choose one social media to use for the rest of your life, which social media would you choose? Snapchat. Even though, it can get annoying.
  6. If you can take someone back from the dead, who would you choose and why? This is a really hard question. I don’t know who I would bring back.
  7. What is one skincare product you swear by? Clean and Clear Acne Treatment
  8. Who is your childhood hero/heroine? I can’t remember ever really having one??
  9. Who is that one person you can live with for the rest of your days? Hahaa this depends on the day and my tolerance levels.
  10. What are the top five things you can’t leave the house without? My Epipens – so I don’t die. Waterbottle because it’s a habit now and gotta keep hydrated. That’s basically it.
  11. Name your ultimate favorite food combo (e.g. Peanut Butter & Jelly, Fish & Fries) Chocolate and coffee.

3 things about myself

  • I love baking. Having a peanut allergy has forced me to make my own baked goods and get good at it.

  • I actually don’t really like cake but I always think I do. I make a cake. I think I like cake. I try a piece. I don’t like it. Then the cake cycle repeats.
  • I hate the smell of chocolate cake. I’ve purposefully left the house because a chocolate cake was baking.

I think I’m in a baking mood. The Cake Boss theme song has been stuck in my head all day.

Questions

Stella’s questions

  1. What is your zodiac? I have an Aries sun, Leo moon and Cancer rising. I’ve been kind of zodiac obsessed lately, it’s so fun to see if it actually comes true and how people of the same signs are similar.
  2. What is your favourite season? I used to really love fall, but I enjoyed last spring and summer a lot more than the fall.
  3. Do you have any pets? If so, tell us about them! I have 2 cats and a dog. They are kind of annoying a lot of the time but I still love them.
  4. What is your favourite band/musician? Beyoncé, Troye Sivan and Amy Winehouse.
  5. What is your favourite object in your bedroom? My bed?

Alli’s questions

  1.  What has been your favourite age so far? Why? I don’t really know, I’m too young for this 😂 Let’s go with 5 because I can kinda remember that and I remember going to Disney World and can’t pick out any bad things from that year LOL
  2.  If you had to be stuck in a room with one person for 72 hours, who would it be? I don’t know if I would drive myself crazier alone than if I was with someone. I feel like if I chose anyone I would get really angry at them then we’d both just end up mad.
  3.   What’s one of your guilty pleasures? Lattes. I have a bad latte addiction and a desire to learn latte art.
  4.  What’s something you should never look up on google images? Have you looked this up before? Basically anything. All Google image searches go bad at some point.
  5.   Who? What? Where? When? and Why? Me? A person? In Canada? At 11:30 am? Because I’m alive and here?

Beatrice’s questions

  1.  After a bad day, who’s the first person you go to?  My mum or one of my close friends.
  2. What’s something you’re scared of? Fish, death, and being upside down.
  3. What do you think of my new book, Into the Shadows? 😅😅😅 I’m sorry, I had to… I read some of the preview on Amazon and it looks interesting! I applaud you for writing a book, I think I’d get really bored of it.
  4. What’s the last thing you ate? Tikka masala curry! Curry is my comfort food.
  5.  If you were stranded on an island, what are the top three things you’d HAVE to have with you? A helicopter to get off the island. A pilot to fly the helicopter. And some food so I don’t get hangry and make the pilot mad since they’d be my only way out.

Homeschool FAQs

With exams being this week here, I’ve been getting asked a lot of questions about homeschooling so I thought I would answer some of the most common ones!

 

  • Do you have to take exams?

I do not. Exams are just to make sure that you’re learning what is being taught, I just do my schoolwork until I have mastered it or know it pretty well then move on to the next thing.

  • Why do you homeschool?

Because of my severe nut allergy and how schools weren’t good about it then, and my parents decided that it’s a better way of education for us. For more check out A History Of My Homeschooling (#backstoryweek)

  • Is it fun?

Sometimes, yeah! But most of the time, it’s incredibly boring, just like public school. My family has lots of fun some days together, and being able to go places or basically do what I want is fun. I don’t have a classroom filled with other kids, though, so it doesn’t get too exciting.

  • Who teaches you?

I do some things online, and those things are videos with teachers, and other things are from books and if I need help I will ask my mum, or Google.

  • Do you get to sit around in pyjamas all day?

If I wanted to? But no. I love clothes too much, and I think that would make me get quite depressed.

  • Do you get a summer break?

This depends on the year, usually, I just lessen the amount of schoolwork I do, but last year and what I will probably do this year, I took off the same time as kids in public school did. I do not take PD days off, though because those don’t apply to me at all.

  • Do you get to sleep in?

YESSSS! Honestly favourite part of homeschooling. I used to wake up between 10 or 11 am but now I have been getting up earlier around 8 am to do Pilates. And I usually stay up really late.

  • How do you make friends?

See my post on The S Word.

  • What about the high school experience?

I don’t even know what this is, but I get asked this a lot. The only thing I can think of is going to maybe school sports games, school dances or things like that, and I can just ask my friends who go to public school to invite me.

  • What about extracurricular things?

A lot of things are offered in the local homeschool group or community centres.

 

If you have any questions about homeschooling feel free to ask them in the comments or contact me!

2016/2017 Tag

Here’s another tag post that I was tagged in thanks to Jess! The tag was created by The Guy Who Said Always No. Ok, let’s start with the questions!

 

 

Questions

Describe your 2016 in 3 words.

This is kind of hard actually, I think maybe the 3 word I would use are: interesting, tiring, and good.

Write the names of 2 people who have characterised your 2016.

I met so many people in 2016 and made so many friends, it’s crazy! So I’m just going to say all my new friends as one because they made the year really fun and brought me a lot of joy, and also made it crazy lol.

And then just my close family since that’s who I spent all my time with.

 

Write about the most beautiful places you visited in 2016 and why you liked it so much.

To be honest, I didn’t even really leave my house that much last year, but it’s still kind of beautiful around my home!

 

Write about the most delicious food you tasted in 2016.

Oh my gosh, there was so much good food! I don’t know what the most delicious was but I am a sucker for brownies so I’m going to have to say it was one of the many batches of brownies I made! I went on a black bean brownie kick and made lots of those.

 

 

Write the event which has marked you most in 2016 ( even global events )

I don’t really know. Luckily a lot of the big global events didn’t really affect me, for now, or that I’m entirely aware, at least. I was afraid that I would come across a killer clown, though.

 

Write about the finest purchase you made in 2016 and if you want link a photo.

For my birthday I got an iPhone, it wasn’t my purchase but it was the best thing I got in 2016!

 

 

Write 3 good intentions for 2017

  • Read more
  • Balance my life out a bit
  • Live

 

 

One place you want to visit in 2017?

I’m kind of open to any travel, so anywhere would be cool! I’ve always wanted to go to Europe, though, if we’re dreaming big here.

 

One food you want to eat in 2017?

I am craving doughnuts, right now, or of course brownies.

 

 

I’m not going to tag people but please keep the tag going and fill it out, too!

 

The Rules

  • Use the image that you find in this article.
  • Mention the blogger who has chosen you.
  • Answer the questions.
  • Mention 9 bloggers/friends and let them know through a comment on their blog.

 

P.S. It’s Peri

100 Followers – Internet Famous? 

This blog hit 100 followers yesterday!!!

Oh my gosh, I’m so excited and happy about this, it’s insane! I didn’t think I would hit 100 this fast and I’m so thankful for everyone who reads my posts and for all of the super supportive comments and likes! I feel like I’m Internet famous, even though it’s not that many people, but hey, that is a lot of people I didn’t know a month ago when I started the blog.

 

Getting to know you

Since there’s now quite a few readers I would like to get to know you all a bit! You can tell me whatever you want about yourself in the comments below and/or answer some or all of these random questions!

  1. What’s your favourite song as of now? I will probably listen to it!
  2. What are some of your favourite blogs?
  3. What country are you from?
  4. Do you have any pets?
  5. One wish right now?

 

Ok it’s kind of hard to think of random questions on the whim but there are some to work with!

 

Thanks so much again!!

 

P.S. It’s Peri
