It’s been a few weeks since I did a tag, so I am here with a MEGA TAG. If you want to know more about me, this is the PERFECT post for you… if not, don’t worry ha! I don’t expect many people to get to the end of this! It’s not a very bookish post today, more general, so you might found out something extra about me!
I found this on my friend Amy’s blog and loved it! If you’d like to read her post, check it out here: Amy’s post
1. What is your usual Starbucks order?
Oooh, it depends! A vanilla cold brew sweet cream, a peppermint hot chocolate or a vanilla latte. Literally just depends on my mood ha!
2. What does your workstation look like right now?
I don’t have one at home really. I am currently sitting in bed with my laptop on my pillows.

LOL. THIS IS TRULY THE WORST QUESTION TO ASK ME (probably Melinda Salisbury though… I know, truly truly surprised!)
5. What do you think of open relationships?
If they work for you, go for it, but I don’t think I’m designed to be in one.

Ugh, I don’t like the phrase ‘guilty pleasure’ because why should I feel guilt over something that I enjoy? However, if I am going with the feel of the question, general shitty TV like Dinner Date – absolute trash TV.

In fact, I can’t choose because all your answers made me to know you . And with number 60, I haven’t also done that yet.
Fun tag! I definitely learned a lot about you!🥰 Also, I would love to go to Ireland and Italy (or really anywhere once it’s safe to travel again!). It’s great that you’re doing your dream job of teaching, cats are amazing, and cake is totally better than pie! 😂❤️
I agree with you on laptop. I can’t imagine going back to a desktop, it’s been so long and the laptop’s portability is handy.
