The Get to Know Me Tag!

Thanks to the ever so great Geraldine @ Corralling Books  for tagging me to do this! Things are going to get personal:


Name:Emily Grace
Nicknames: Emmy, Em, Emmette
Birthday: December 19, 1999
Star Sign: Sagittarius, the archer!
Occupation: High School Student


Hair Colour: Standard dark brown, but I've put lighter brown highlights in!
Hair Length: Medium I guess? I prefer my hair shorter as it get's curlier.
Eye Colour: Dark brown
Best Feature: I wear glasses, and I really like the look of them on my face. Idk if that counts as a feature, but I think glasses suit me!
Braces: Used to have them, now I'm 2 years braces free!
Piercings: Only ears, but I haven't worn earrings in years that I'm afraid they closed up!
Tattoos: None, but I kind of want one when I'm older? Maybe? Idk I'll probably chicken out.
Right or Left handed: Left handed yay!!!


Best Friend: A girl named Jasmine in Grade 1, we were friends for 5 years, but then obviously grew apart.
Award: My school used to give out awards for students who showed good character and were respectful every month, and I'm pretty sure my first was in Grade 2.
Sport: I used to be really into figure skating, kind of upset I gave it up as I could have been a champion figure skater by now!
Real Holiday: I guess Bahamas when I was a baby, but first holiday that I actually remember was when I went to Italy in 2006.


Film: Oh God, there's so many. The Theory of Everything, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Breakfast Club, the list goes on.
TV Show: Either Grey's Anatomy or Gilmore Girls
Colour: Blue, which is ironic considering my entire blog is pink.
Song: Really? Really, you're going to do this to me again?! Right now, probably Jet Black Heart by: 5sos.
Restaurant: There's this pizza place in Niagara Falls that my family always goes to when we're there. It's SO GOOD!
Shop: The bookstore? Honestly Indigo Books and Music is the best store ever.
Book: Sigh. I'm going to have to say Harry Potter but honestly I have a lot as you can probably guess.
Shoes: My Sperry's, their comfortable and so my style!


Feeling: Neutral? Probably annoyed because I went to school today but there's no one here because we had a half day and I'm stuck here when I could have stayed home.
Single or Taken: Taken by books.
Eating: I'm not eating anything at the moment, but I just had some avocado toast!
Thinking About: This essay that I should probably be writing in English.
Watching: I just watched an episode of Gilmore Girls.
Wearing: My school uniform. Blah.


Want Children? Nope, I cannot handle kids and I have no desire to raise them.
Want to be Married: I want a long-term relationship, but I do not necessarily want to get married. I'm a pretty independent person.
Careers in Mind: A writer, specifically a journalist.
Where you want to live: Somewhere small and cozy, if we're talking abroad then my dream is to live in either Paris or London.

Do You Believe In... 

God? Yes. I was raised Catholic, and even though many of my views are opposite to the traditional Catholic, there have been experiences in my life that I can only connect to a greater being.
Miracles: Yeah, I do, but sometimes I think that they're a bit far-fetched.
Love at First Sight: No way.
Ghosts: IDK, MAYBE? I think I do, because I am easily swayed by those ghosthunter and physic medium shows.
Aliens: I totally do!
Soul mates: No, that all seems a bit unrealistic.
Heaven: I believe in life after death, whether or not that's the golden gates of heaven, idk.
Hell: No, I don't think so.
Kissing on the first date: Sure? If you want to, go for it!
Yourself: Yeah, I think I do! If you don't believe in yourself, you must try your hardest to get there :)

    1. No problem Cee! You do whatever you're comfortable with :)

  2. I'm so glad I found someone else with my same views of having children and getting married. I always get shit for having those opinions, but it's like, it's my life and I'll do what I want. Great tag! I'll do it right now otherwise I will forget of get swamped with school.

    1. I know right? Especially in my religion, is extremely taboo to just want to live with someone or to not want to have children with someone. I respect those who want to do that stuff, but why should I be seen as less? Can't wait to see your answers!

    1. Thanks Bryce! I'm looking forward to seeing your answers :)

    (also - two years braces free, woo!)

    1. LOL REALLY?! I always think I look younger than I actually am! YOU NEED TO SEE IT! Everything from the acting to the cinematography is amazing!!! And HOW FUN WOULD THAT BE?! We could all be roommates lol! Thanks for tagging me Geraldine!
