My eleven facts:
As this is my sixth time receiving this award, you guys already know a lot about me. 55 facts from this award alone, to be precise. So, here's a little summary of what I'm up to currently.
(1) I am currently in my house because (2) yesterday I went to The Big City with FKG and (3) tomorrow I am going away to Turkey for two weeks, and I sort of need a day to relax. (4) I am currently sipping away on a glass full of peach water because (5) it makes me feel healthy, (6) it tastes pretty damn good and (7) I've just had a gorgeous orange breakfast as (8) I'm trying to be a vegan but (9) I am failing miserably. (10) I should really start packing for tomorrow but (11) it's always more fun to be stressed at 5am. We all know that.
What colour are your eyes and what colour is your hair?
My eyes are blue for the most part, with a dark blue outline and a gradually paler blue interior, with faint yellow flakes neighbouring the pupil. I recently dyed my hair from my natural colour (which resembles a pale brown but isn't really anything) to an almost-black colour with my weird red highlights coming through when my hair's absorbing the sun's rays.
Which author would you like to collaborate on a book with?
Sue Ransom perhaps? Because not only are her books absolute masterpieces (Small Blue Thing = perfection), but she just seems like a really down-to-earth person and would be really interesting to have a conversation with.
Who is your fictional boyfriend?
Isn't it obvious? Leonard Hofstadter of course! I try not to fangirl too much because of the obvious - he's a fictional character - but aw, he would just be so cute. He's smart and funny and hey, his reality exterior (Johnny Galecki) is pretty kind on the eyes too.
Do you like floral print?
It depends. If you're wearing it as stylish lace-edged shorts then yes. If you've stuck a load of pansies to your forehead then no.
Are you going on holiday this summer? If you are, where are you going?
Mhm, you can find out more about my schedule this Summer on my 2nd August post (which I kind of can't link right now because this is a scheduled post from before I went to Swansea. Sorry).
Which social media site do you use the most?
Facebook for the IM and Instagram for, naturally, the 'selfie game'.
If you could have dinner with 10 fictional characters (films, TV shows, books, any fictional character) who would you choose?
This is a hard one!
Sheldon Cooper for the laughs.
Leonard Hofstadter for the looks.
Ted Mosby for the conversation.
Midori Yoshida to tell me how 172 Hours On The Moon ends.
Harry Potter for the, uh, magic.
Frodo (or Bilbo, y'know, either-or) for the epic stories.
Lily Aldrin for Lily Aldrin.
Lottie Biggs for the Welsh translations.
Bridget Jones for the life tips.
Aaand Edward Cullen for that added Vampireyness. Obviously.
What are your hopes and dreams?
This is such a longlisted question! But to be short - I want to study with Oxford somewhere in France or Spain for my A Levels and then... well it's pretty foggy from there, but I would then (somehow) like to become either a travel blogger, travel vlogger, travel journalist, travel photographer, macro photographer, or just something based in the travel industry like a flight attendant. And if none of those work, maybe something with the Government, like in the MI5 - even though my friend's mum works in the MI5 and apparently it isn't as badass as the movie industry makes it out to be. Sigh.
Would you rather read inside or outside?
I live in Britain, where the sun is shining precisely 0.2% of the time. So, based on that fact, I'd probably prefer to read indoors to avoid the rain, hail stones, wind and snow.
What book have you read that had a really great message? What was the message?
172 Hours On The Moon, which is basically about the fact that people will lie to you (and send you to the moon) for their own personal gain, and you're really just a pawn in people's plans and just oh god it's just such a good book YOU HAVE TO READ IT *deep breath*.
What is one of your favourite songs at the moment?
My (slightly more than) eleven gorgeous nominees are as follows:

Have an awesome rest-of Summer break, y'all!
