My answers to the 11 questions

1. What is your favorite app to use? For blogging and personal use

Habitica!!! I use this app for blogging and personal use. Habitica turns your to-do list and your goals into a RPG game. When you check things off your to-do list or keep up with a new habit, you get points that help you level up your character in the app. Likewise, if you don’t complete your daily tasks you lose points.

When you reach level 10, you can choose between being a healer, warrior, rogue, or mage. Plus, you can go on quests with others in Habitica. Two of my sisters and I go on quests together.

2. If you can only wear one makeup brand for the rest of your life, which brand would you choose?
Although it sounds silly, the closest I’ve been to wearing makeup is chapstick, so this is a hard one. I don’t know if I’ll start wearing some in the future, so I’ll go with none for now.

3. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
Learning new skills! I get bored if I’m stuck in the same routine, and blogging offers so many opportunities to try new things. When I talk about new skills, I’m referring to both technical and social skills. Thanks to blogging, I’ve been getting better at maintaining long distance friendships and implementing my ideas.

4. Who is your celebrity crush?
For now, Cole Sprouse is my celebrity crush. I might be a little too obsessed with Riverdale.

5. If you can travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I would travel to France. I want to practice my French.

6. Who do you get inspiration from when blogging?
I mostly use my experience as inspiration.

7. Do you have a talent? If so, what is your talent?
One of my talents is public speaking. For most people, public speaking is scary, but I love the thrill before I speak, especially if I care and understand my topic. It also helps that I’m a world class daydreamer, so I visualize my presentation go very well and that gives me confidence.

8. What is your favorite Disney Movie?
Wreck-it Ralph

9. If you were in the circus, what kind of performer would you be?
I would be the escape artist. I have no athletic prowess at all, so anything that requires strength wouldn’t work for me. Being an escape artist would be perfect because I have time to perfect my tricks. I would be able to perfect my tricks before I perform.

10. Cake or Pie?
Cake all the way! Ice cream cake is in a class of its own.

11. What inspired you to start blogging?
I fell in love with reading blogs after reading a couple of personal finance blogs. From there, it got me thinking that creating a blog would be a lot of fun and a great way to learn new skills. After over a year of waiting, I finally started because I wanted a change to my routine.
