Earlier this week, Erin tagged me in this fun little question/answer thing, and since I love these kinds of things I just had to participate!

Here are the rules.

  1. You must post these rules.
  2. Each per­son must post 11 things about them­selves on their blog.
  3. Answer the ques­tions the tag­ger set for you in their post and cre­ate 11 new ques­tions for the peo­ple you tag to answer.
  4. You have to choose 11 peo­ple to tag and link them on the post. Go to their page and tell them you have linked him or her.
  5. No tag backs and you legit­i­mately have to tag 11 people.

11 Facts About Myself

1. I have just as many books on my to-read shelf as I do on my ‘read’ shelf
2. If I don’t get 8 hours of sleep, I am almost guaranteed to be cranky
3. I’m addicted to shopping
4. I’m not a big fan of alcohol at all. I’m a social drinker & will have a few drinks when I’m out, but I don’t like spending money on alcohol or the feeling of being really drunk.
5. I have trouble focusing on a task for a long time
6. My room rarely stays clean for more than a few hours. By the time I get to bed, there is something out of place!
7. I don’t have my driver’s license, but I wish I did. I need to make more time for that.
8. I still get really nervous when I interview artists for CONFRONT, but I would never want that feeling to change!
9. I want to do something important in my lifetime, I just don’t know *what* yet.
10. My addiction to Harry Potter has worsened in the last year or so. I like to think for the better though!
11. No matter how hard I try, I don’t think I’ll ever be a “sporty” person. It’s actually a miracle that I enjoy fitness classes!

Erin’s Questions

1.Where is one place (city, state, or country) that you are dying to visit? 
– Oh well I just love this question! Currently dying to visit India, Chile, Australia, New Zealand, Italy. I’ll stop there before I get carried away *cough*
2. What is your bed time?
– It depends on how tired I am. Normally between 10pm and midnight otherwise I’m just too cranky the next day. I can’t go to bed too late because I like being up relatively early the next day!
3. What is one resolution or goal you have for 2012?
– I have twelve. 🙂
4. What would be your last supper?
– This is a nearly impossible question for me to answer because a) I can’t think of *last* anything. That thought terrifies me. Also b) I love food so much I’m not sure if I could choose. HOWEVER, off the top of my head, I’d have a huge breakfast, because that is my favorite. Pancakes, waffles, eggs, toast with nutella/peanut butter/jam, bacon, sausage, you name it. I want it there.
5. If you could eat a meal with one person, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
– With a girl, I’d love to sit down with Emma Watson, Zooey Deschanel, Kristen Bell, Blake Lively, Suzanne Collins (the author), Veronica Roth (the author), Sarah Jessica Parker, or Hayley Williams (singer from Paramore).

– With a guy, where on earth do I start? If there was no fear of passing out from sheer nerves, I’d LOVE to sit down with Leonardo DiCaprio, Andrew McMahon (singer for Jack’s Mannequin), Jason Segel, Johnny Cash (that would be my choice for someone who isn’t alive), Rupert Grint, Daniel Radcliffe, Tom Felton, Matthew Lewis (uh yeah, so basically the entire Harry Potter cast?), John Green (author) or Markus Zusak (author). I really had to restrain myself with this list LOL.
6. What is your favorite animal?
– It always changes, to be honest, but I really like birds. I have no idea why.
7. What is your dream job?
– Working at a music label as a recruiter for new talent, working at a publishing house as the person who gets to read incoming manuscripts, or even editing already-known authors’ work.
8. Who is your hero?
– This is going to sound weird, but I don’t think I HAVE one. There isn’t that *one* person that I consider a hero. I am inspired by many people, but I don’t consider any my hero.
9.When you need a snack, do you reach for sweet or salty? 
– I try and mix it up a little. I often reach for almonds and cheese, a sweet & salty granola bar, whole wheat toast and peanut butter, crackers and hummus. That kind of thing.
10. Does your style have a signature? 
– I don’t think it’s really a *signature* but my good friends are known to see a really awesome shirt and be like “Oh, that’s a Mel shirt”. I rarely wear simple tops- I try and go for really cute and original ones with bold designs. I think if anything THAT would be my signature. I’m bold-top-girl. Ha!
11. What is your favorite book?
– Erin, what are you doing to me?! I don’t think I could choose just ONE even if my life depended on it. I will give you a list of the first five that come to mind instead.
1. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
2. Looking for Alaska by John Green
3. The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffeneger
4. Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult
5. Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

My Questions:

1. Why did you start writing your blog?
2. What’s your favorite part of the day?

5. Who is your biggest inspiration- celebrity, writer, singer, or person in your life right now?
6. What is your favorite part of the holidays?
7. What do you really want to accomplish in 2012?
8. You’re stranded on a desert island and you can’t have any technology, way off the island, makeup, or soap. What do you bring?

  1. Oh man can I substitute the 21 things post I just did for the 11 facts about myself?? 😉 Why is coming up with random things/facts about yourself so hard??

    This is fun though. I’ve been looking for more blogging content lately so will definitely do this after the holidays!

  2. CHEATER, CHEATER, PUMPKIN EATER FOR #5! 😉 Haaaa. I was just laughing as I read along with that.

    Erin tagged me to do this as well and now you did? Does this mean I have to come up with 22 random facts? Oy. Hehe. (But whee! Thanks!)
