Ah, how I love it when a blog post I want to write just simply does not want to work out so I’m stuck with nothing to post even though I really want to. Thank god for the bookish community and all of the various tags that have been created over the many, many years!
I spotted this one over on My Tiny Obsessions and it looked super fun, so I wanted to do it on my blog too. Plus, this gives you an idea of other things I enjoy and love that aren’t books – which I think is great!
So, let’s just jump into this tag!
1. NAME A CARTOON THAT YOU LOVE.
I don’t really watch cartoons these days but as a child I would watch anything and everything the TV channels had to offer! But one show I would make sure to not miss an episode of was always Sailor Moon. It was usually on after we came home from school and I always, always watched it. My aunt even recorded the Sailor Moon movie for me once because I had speech therapy and couldn’t watch it on TV.
2. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SONG RIGHT NOW?
Here we go. This is my first (but probably not only) mention of BTS for this tag but it’s true. I’ve been listening to nothing but BTS for the past two weeks at least. My BTS playlists have even taken over my audiobook listening on the way to my parents’, it’s that serious. xD As for a favorite song. I can’t choose just ONE, that’s rude so let me give you some of my favorite solo songs from the guys instead!
The very first song I have to mention is Epiphany sung by Jin. I was listening to this song one night while reading the translated lyrics and I honest to god broke into sobs as soon as Jin sings ‘I should love myself.‘ – it was an emotionally draining night. Then we have Euphoria sung by my fave Jungkook and Serendipity sung by Jimin (y’all. This song continues to pull me out of whatever I’m doing with some of the lines and the way Jimin sings them) and I can’t leave Singularity off of this list. V kills it on that song – studio or live.
And then for the rap line I love, love, love’s RM’s Do You (it’s from his solo mixtape)/ Trivia: Love, Suga’s Agust D and J-Hope’s Trivia: Just Dance – he has so much fun with that song on stage, I couldn’t help but fall in love too!
This answer ended up being so much longer than I expected but I can’t choose just one song with this band. I can’t. BUT WAIT. I didn’t even recommend anything for all of BTS, damn it! Okay, listen to 2! 3!, Magic Shop and Dope (because I love, love, love this song) for a good mixture of what they can do.
I’ve made sure to link you to lyric videos for every song I recommended so you get the full experience and get to know they’re way of writing. 🙂
3. WHAT COULD YOU DO FOR HOURS THAT ISN’T READING?
At the moment, that’s watching any and all BTS videos I can get my hands on or watching stuff with two of my friends who have been showing me all the things any BTS fan needs to have seen which has been super fun.
But if we’re moving away from BTS, than I’d say spend time with my nephews. I adore those three boys so, so much and treasure any and all minutes I can get with them! Especially when I see my cousin who barely sees her brother’s kids because they haven’t spoken in years. I want to make sure I’m always part of my nephews’ lives no matter what. 🙂
4. WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU LOVE TO DO THAT YOUR FOLLOWERS WOULD BE SURPRISED BY?
I don’t think I’ve spoken about my love of baking too much on here, but yeah, that’s something I love doing! By no means am I great at it or anything (I feel more comfortable experimenting with just cooking) but I’ve been trying new things here and there. 🙂
5. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE UNNECESSARILY SPECIFIC THING TO LEARN ABOUT?
The British Royal Family (though the more recent-ish history)! I’ve been kind of in love with them ever since Prince William and Kate Middleton announced their engagement – I spend the day they got married mostly close to a TV so I could watch it (some for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle). Plus, I just think they’re history is quite interesting and I never get tired of watching stuff on them. 🙂
6. WHAT IS SOMETHING UNUSUAL THAT YOU KNOW HOW TO DO?
I don’t think there is anything, to be honest!
7. NAME SOMETHING YOU MADE IN THE LAST YEAR AND SHOW US IF YOU CAN.
Eh, I’m not very crafty or anything so there isn’t anything to show, really. For a bit I was really into making friendship bracelets but I’ve since stopped doing it, plus I never made anything too fancy either, just wanted something to pass the time with while watching YouTube.
8. WHAT IS YOUR MOST RECENT PERSONAL PROJECT?
Watch and learn everything there is about BTS. xD Honestly, I keep saying this but this month has basically been dedicated to BTS for me and it has been awesome! I’m watching behind the scenes stuff where I can, I’m watching their live performances (because holy shit are they great) and interviews to get myself familiar with them and their history. 🙂
9. TELL US SOMETHING THAT YOU THINK ABOUT OFTEN?
Jungkook? Aka my favorite BTS member. xD Or just BTS in general, really. But that’s a very right now answer as it’s what I’ve been investing so much time into these past few weeks. 🙂
10. GIVE US SOMETHING THAT IS YOUR FAVORITE.
I just want to quickly mention BTS here again because they are. But then also my friend Caro who is one of the nicest people out there and I’ll forever be grateful that blogging introduced us to each other. ❤
11. SAY THE FIRST THING THAT POPS INTO YOUR HEAD.
‘What BTS video am I gonna watch later?’ – I’ve been using fun BTS content as a motivation for myself to get things done and I actually have a new episode of one of their shows to watch as it aired later today so I’m excited to get to that as soon as this post is ready to go!
Okay, there we go! A tag about things that aren’t reading related – I’m so sorry it still kind of ended up being about mostly one thing but that’s where my brain has been at recently. xD
What are some of you guys’ non-bookish favorite things? Any hobbies you have outside of reading? And for my fellow BTS lovers: what are some of your favorite songs? And of course, who’s your bias? Let me know in the comments down below!
