My Answers

What is your favorite thing about fall? Why did I include this question!? There are soo many! The cooler weather, cozy sweaters, more baking, the death of annoying bugs, the beautiful autumn leaves…I cannot choose!

What is your least favorite thing about fall? At least this question is a little bit easier to answer than the previous one. πŸ˜„ Maybe the fact that it’s getting dark out so early! It’s just six o’clock, and it’s already so dark outside. I guess this isn’t all bad though. When it gets dark early, you can spend a nice cozy evening inside reading. Still, it can be annoying if I’m wanting to do something outside, and I don’t get a chance to do it during the day.

What is your favorite fall scent? I love all of the apple cinnamon-type candles! We have one called “apple cinnamon bun” and it smells so good!

What is your favorite fall food? I like pies, they seem very fallish. Or, basically anything apple cinnamon or pumpkin spice! πŸ₯§πŸŽ

What is your favorite fall movie/book? I don’t know why, but I always think of Little Women as a movie to watch in the fall. I guess it’s not really an autumn movie, but it’s a nice movie to watch on a fall evening, with a nice warm cup of tea, and a crochet project sitting on my lap. As for a book…maybe the LOTR (Lord of the Rings) series! Again, they’re not really “fallish” books, but I sort of think of them in the fall. Maybe because I started the series last autumn, and I just finished it this month.

What’s your favorite fall song? All Too Well (10 minute version, of course) gives me fall vibes! “Autumn leaves falling down like pieces into place, and I can picture it after all these days.” Such fallish lyrics. πŸ‚ Also, the short film is so autumny!

What is your favorite fall tradition? I don’t feel like my family has many traditions, but something we’ve done for the past few years, and which we plan to do this year, is to watch the Lord of the Rings movies on Thanksgiving (or the day before, depending on when we do the most baking.) We just have the movies on while we’re cooking, and it’s really fun.

What is your favorite autumn activity? We don’t do a lot of things in the fall (like apple picking, or going to a pumpkin patch) but I do love baking in the fall! In the summer, it’s kind of annoying baking, because it warms the whole house up, but it’s so nice in the fall when the weather’s starting to cool down!

What is your favorite fall quote? I don’t know who said this; I just saw it and thought it was so nice. “Autumn is the season that teaches us that change can be beautiful.”

What is your favorite fall outfit? I love sweaters and flannels, dresses, skirts, and comfy jeans. I really like the outfit I’m wearing now: a black skirt, an orangish brown sweater (which I borrowed from my sister), and some platform sandals.

My “This or That” Answers

Hot cocoa or apple cider? Hot cocoa usually gives me a stomach ache, so I’d go with apple cider.

Flannel or sweater? I love both, and I’ve been more into flannels this year, but I’d still choose sweaters. They’re so cozy.

Apple pie or pumpkin pie? I like both, but apple is delicious!

Rainy days or sunny days? I think that a mix of both is best, but there’s just something about rainy fall days. 🌧

Watch a movie or read a book? I like movies, but sometimes I find it hard to concentrate on them. That’s why I usually have a crochet project I’m working on while watching anything.

Sunflower or pumpkin decor? Despite all of my crochet pumpkins, sunflowers are still my favorite flower! They are so bright and cheerful looking! Keep an eye out for a crochet sunflower keychain pattern that’ll come out soon! 🌻

Thanksgiving or Halloween? I don’t get the big hype that is associated with Halloween. I think it’s fun and all, but I’d choose Thanksgiving over it. I like the meaning of Thanksgiving, thinking about all of my blessings and the things to be thankful for in my life, and I also like spending time with my family, baking and cooking.

Pumpkin patch or apple picking? I haven’t gone to either, but I think that apple picking sounds really fun!

Spooky autumn or cozy autumn? I just love to curl up with a nice book and some tea, with a fluffy blanket.

Pumpkin spice or apple cinnamon? I feel like in a lot of the “pumpkin spice” recipes, you can’t taste the pumpkin a lot, and it’s more the spices. I love apple cinnamon!

An Aesthetic

Here’s a little aesthetic sort of collage of autumn photos! I used Canva to make it!

Strike-Out Tag Challenge

Hello everybody! How is your day going? I’m pretty good! Glad it’s almost the weekend! πŸ˜ƒ

Today, I’m here with a tag I was nominated for by Victoria and Isabelle, BetsyJane, and Maggie! Thanks to all of you! ☺ This looks like a really fun tag!

Okay, let’s get straight into it!


Kissed someone – Nope.

Gone to a rock concert – I went to a concert once with different Christain singers and bands! It was super fun! They had Skillet there, so I think that could count as a rock concert!

Helped someone – Yup!

Gone fishing – I have a few times with my family, but I don’t particularly like fishing. I think that it’s just sort of boring, and I never end up catching anything.

Watched four movies in one night – I don’t think so. Maybe four movies in one day, but not in one night.

Lied to someone – Yeah, sadly.

Failed a subject – No, I haven’t. I’ve done badly on some of my school, but I don’t think that I’ve failed a whole subject before.

Been in a car accident – When I was pretty little, a car hit ours. We were all okay.

Been in a tsunami – Thankfully, no.

Watched someone die (including pets) – I don’t think so.

Been to a funeral – Again, I don’t think so. At least not that I remember. Maybe when I was little, though.

Burned yourself – Yes. I love baking, so getting burned is always a risk there.

Run a marathon – No, but I think that I want to someday.

Spend over 10,000 bucks in one day – Nope!

Flown on an aeroplane – Airplane? I went on one of those small planes once. But, I don’t know if it counts.

Written a 18 page letter (front & back) – No…I can only imagine how much my wrist would hurt after writing that much!

Gone skiing – We don’t travel a lot, so I’ve never really had an opportunity to. I think it sounds fun, though.

Lost someone you loved – Not really.

Got into trouble for something you didn’t do – I do have siblings, so…

Stolen a book from a library – I don’t think so.

Gone to a different country – No, but I hope to go to Europe someday! I think that Paris and Italy would be nice places to visit! Ireland, too!

Gambled in a casino – No.

Been in a school play – I’m homeschooled, so no. Unless the plays my siblings and I wrote and did when we were younger counts…

Taken a lie detector test – Never, but I think it would be interesting.

Voted for someone on a reality TV show – No.

Read more than 20 books a year – Yes! I love reading!

Gone to Europe – No, but as I said, I hope to someday! It would just be really fun, I think!

Had a surgery – No.

Had stitches – Nope. Once, I sliced my finger open with a knife, and it was almost bad enough to get stitches, but not quite.

Ridden a tuk-tuk (autorickshaw) – Let me look up what that is real quick…uh, nope, I haven’t. It does look sort of fun, though.

Had more than 5 IM conversations going on at once – Like, texting? No, I don’t think so.

Been in a fist fight – I feel like there were some fights I had with my siblings when I was younger, but I don’t know if those could be considered fist fights.

Had a pet – Yes! I had a bunny named Mae when I was younger, and now I have a cat named Luna.

Petted a wild animal – Yeah, I think so.

Had your own credit card & bought something with it – Not yet.

Dyed your hair – I dyed the tips of my hair with Kool-Aid a few times! It actually showed up real well.

Got a tattoo – No.

Had something pierced – I got my ears pierced a couple times.

Got a straight A – πŸ‘

Taken pictures with a webcam – No, I haven’t.

Gone to sleep with music on – Yep! I like listening to something while I go to sleep, whether it’s an audiobook or music!

Nominations: Heidi, Addie, and Raegan! If any of you don’t want to do it, already did it, or are tag free, sorry for bothering you!


Thank you for reading! How many of these things have you done? I’d love to chat in the comments!

– Maggie’s questions –

What’s the last blog post idea you had?

The last blog post idea I had was doing a series about the book I’m currently writing once I finish the first draft! Is that something y’all would like to see? I would post probably every day for a week, with different posts relating to the contemporary novel!

Do you like collecting stickers?

Not really.

If you could receive one present right now, what would you like for someone to give you?

Hmmm…there’s not really anything that I really need. Maybe some Coboo yarn, because I’ve really been wanting to crochet a top with it, and I don’t have any on hand right now. Or more Kasie West books!

Coffee or tea?

Tea!!

Favorite animal to see at the zoo?

I like seeing all of them, but the elephants and giraffes are some of my favorites!

How long into the future do you see yourself blogging?

I hope to continue blogging through highschool, maybe also when I’m older, but I say highschool because I don’t know if I’ll have the time if I go to college and everything.
