Hello, fellow bloggers!
I was nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award back in May and I’m only now getting to answer it, but IT’S FINE. Thank you so much Hannah @ But First, Fiction for nominating me and for being such a kind soul. Her post was also super interesting, full of nice facts, so go check it out!

ONE. I love babies and families and follow a ton on YouTube & social media.
I am only eighteen and have no prospects of becoming a mom at least in the next ten years, but babies & families make me so happy! I don’t even know how to express it, but watching children grow and learn and talk and walk gives me a really wholesome feeling. I don’t have any babies around (
my uncle just refuses to give me any cousins, apparently) and I’ve always been the youngest in my family, so I feel like it’s probably the lack of interaction that makes me so obsessed. Perhaps, having to deal with *actual* babies would change my mind, lol.
As for my favorite families to follow on YouTube, I adore: KKandbabyJ (Asian kids with blue eyes!), JesssFam (and her seven kids!), Mel and Shane (multiple languages!) and The FallCo Family (they’re all so smart!)
TWO. The Jonas Brothers were the first concert I’ve ever been to
I’ve been to a lot of concerts in my life, to the point where I’ve kind of forgotten some. I’ve watched Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, BTS, Arctic Monkeys, One Direction and some others live. I am not even fan of some of these artists anymore, but oh well, lol.
However, the first one was the Jonas Brothers, in 2009, when I was eight years old. It was a huge concert and obviously I was in the furthest seat ever, for safety reasons since I was still a child, but it was still memorable, nonetheless. They returned in 2010 and I was there too, as well as in 2011. Clearly, I’m a fan.
THREE. Bubba Gump is my favorite restaurant in the world
I know it can be kinda hard to find a favorite restaurant, especially for me, because I always order the exact same thing everytime, so it’s not like I’ve tried multiple different dishes and judged all of them.
But I adore Bubba Gump since the first time I ate there. I’ve been to the US twice since then and I’ve had a meal there every time, to the point where it’s almost a tradition by now.
The entire restaurant is dedicated to Forrest Gump – the best movie ever – and it’s absolutely beautiful. The food is also delicious. Okay, I’ve only ordered the same dish every time, but the garlic bread is so tasty as well as the appetizers, so I promise I know what I’m talking about.
FOUR. I was the biggest Disney Channel fan.
I’m sure many of you can relate, but I was deeply obsessed with Disney Channel growing up. I watched every single one of the shows, to the point where I’d be around five hours glued to a TV, watching all of them.
I don’t know how healthy that was, but oh well. My favorite show used to be Zack & Cody, and Suite Life on Deck was the one I’ve literally watched from the beginning and can probably tell you all the specifics. I still loved most shows: Hannah Montana, Jonas, Wizards of Waverly Place, A.N.T Farm, Jessie, etc.
I also adored the Disney Channel Original movies – Stuck in the Suburbs and Jump In are my favorites, albeit the most underrated ones.
FIVE. I’ve been to a Model UN once!
I know, I feel so much like Lara Jean whenever I say that. Unfortunately, I didn’t meet any John Ambrose but I’ve had an amazing experience, nonetheless.
I don’t know how Model UN works across the globe, but in the one I attended, you could also represent the Press by choosing a newspaper. I was representing The Guardian UK and I had to write articles every day about the committee.
I think it was a better choice for me because I am way too shy to be a delegate and talk to so many people without messing up, lol. But it was amazing and I really wish I could go back!
SIX. I’ve never met a celebrity, but I did meet Benjamin Alire Saenz, Alwyn Hamilton and Kiera Cass!
Benjamin Alire Saenz and Alwyn Hamilton are some of my favorite authors and it was such an unforgettable experience to meet them. I am way too awkward to engage in conversations, but it was still fun anyway. Prior to the signing, Benjamin Alire Saenz also did a talk on sexuality, family and love and it was absolutely beautiful. There was literally no dry eye in the room by the end of it.
I also met Kiera Cass when I was a huge fan of her books and even though I have not kept up with the series, I’m still grateful for the memories, as I was surrounded by friends and family and had a really great time.
SEVEN. I keep things just so I can show them to my kids in the future
I feel like every trendy kid on Instagram these days is obsessed with vintage, right? Vintage clothes, records, anything. Which makes me think a lot about how, 20 years from now, kids will also be interested in what’s currently cool now, such as CDs, pen-drives and People magazines.
Therefore, I keep all the magazines with my favorite artists on the cover, along with all of their CDs, thinking about how I’ll be able to either sell them for 300$ in the future or just as a way to pass down to my kids a piece of my childhood/teenage years.
I won’t be nominating anyone today because I’ve just recently shared another Blogger Award and I feel like many people have also already been nominated for this one, but thanks again Hannah for nominating me!
