Facts About Me

Here's a list of facts about me:

1. I have a 5-year-old mustached parakeet named India. She's feisty and adorable, and she's sitting on my shoulder (pirate style) right now.

2. My absolute favorite books are The Book Thief, The Giver, The Catcher in the Rye, and Go and Come Back. My favorite series is Harry Potter.
3. I love watching Japanese commercials. They're very entertaining and kinda addictive. There's a whole YouTube channel devoted to them, so you can have Japanese commercial marathons. Here's the link:
5. My favorite TV shows are Downton Abby and The Simpsons.

6. When I grow up, I want to be a writer or an anthropologist. Someday, I want to write for National Geographic.
7. I'm a big nerd. Actually, you probably already knew that. 
8. I love crafty/DIY stuff, especially origami and collages. 
9. I am afraid of mushrooms. Google "Mycophobia". Yes, it's actually a thing. 
10. It's finally summer, and hopefully I'll have a lot of down time. That means a lot more posts are coming up soon!


  1. Yes! A fellow mycophobiac! ;) The Simpsons are amazing too. That episode when Homer is hunted down by the teletubbies and Big Bird never fails to better a bad day!

    1. Belive it or not, I'd forgotten about that episode! I had to go re-watch a clip on YouTube. Haha.
      Also, I've never met another mycophobiac. It's good to know I'm not alone.

  2. I LOVED the book thief. And Downton Abbey is an especial favorite. I think I've watched the first season about three times now, but the third season...oooh...I won't talk about the third season.

    1. The Book Thief is such a good book - and Downton Abby is terrific!

  3. OMG India is so cute! :D

    I have a friend who has a SEVERE phobia of feathers (not sure what that's called). Our homeschool group took a field trip to a zoo once, and there was a table covered with different kinds of feathers. My friend saw the huge one from an eagle and she burst into tears on the spot. It took a half an hour for her to calm down.

    The most ridiculous and hilarious commercial that I've ever seen (sorry, it's not Japanese) is a music video called "Dumb Ways To Die." You should check it out!

    I subscribed to your blog via "As a Teen Writer." I'm excited to get to know you! :D

    1. Thanks!
      I've never heard of anyone with a phobia of feathers...I guess your friend better not come see India anytime soon, she's molting right now, and my room is coverd in feathers!

  4. Yes nerdy things are great fun! Oh man a parakeet? I WANT A PARAKEET HOW COOL IS THAT, HOW COOL ARE YOU?
    I love your blog and your versatility in your posts on writing and books and life
