Anything But Books Tag

If you haven’t noticed yet, I talk a lot about books on this blog. It’s pretty much a book blog even though I don’t want to use that label because I do blog about other things. But yet, books dominate.

And just like book talk dominates this blog, book tags dominate the blogging world. You’re more likely to find really good book tags than tags for other niches. Most of the tags I’ve done are about books. This sad imbalance is the reason I decided to pitch in for the other side with my Music Habits Tag.

I saw this tag over at Bookchanted and I knew I had to do it because 1) it’s a nice tag and 2) it’s nice even though it’s not about books. The second point deserves merit, okay.

1. Name a cartoon you love.

Dude sad. I wish this wasn’t the first question. I don’t really watch cartoons? I don’t really like them? So I have to regretfully leave this part without a proper answer.

2. What is your favourite song right now?

I can’t decide! I binge-watched a couple Korean dramas recently and I’m completely in love with their soundtracks! I’ll mention my top three at the moment:

All three are from the kdrama It’s Okay That’s Love which I watched last. This month’s favourite songs post is going to be filled with Korean songs lol.

3. What could you do for hours that isn’t reading?

Blogging! I tend to sit for hours and type up a bunch of blog posts and schedule them instead of writing one blog post at a time. I don’t find the right window of time. Scheduling has made my life so much easier.

4. What’s something you love to do that your followers would be surprised by?

Um.. I feel like I’ve spoken about everything on this blog?? This is almost like a diary of me. That too be “surprised” by? Is it valid if I just talk about my love for cute socks instead?

Oh wait I know! I realized this while writing for the next question. I love to explain memes to people around me. I’ve explained to at least half a dozen friends about what millenial, gen Z etc means. They finally understand a little more when I share memes on my personal Instagram story XD

5. What is your favourite unnecessarily favourite thing to learn about?

MEMES. Everything meme culture. I will google things I don’t understand in memes. And it happens often because I’m not in the American society to understand all of them immediately. For example, the recent video of a kid yodeling at Walmart. I don’t understand why it’s so popular?

But other than that? Random things really.

6. What’s something unusual you know how to do?

Does this have to be something learnt? I can make a wave with both my eyebrows. I’m actually really good at waggling them. Sometimes when a friend makes eye contact with me randomly, I make a wave and MOST of them immediately try to do it themselves, fail, then shoot me a disappointed expression. It doesn’t matter if it has happened before, they still try it. It’s very funny.

7. Name something you made in the last year and show us if you can.

I made more lucky stars for my Instagram? I used to be really artsy and craftsy but ever since year 2 of college has started I’ve been swamped with things ALL the time. During the holidays I just read books to make up for the semester. In fact, the number of books after this semester has started (it’s been two and a half months) is probably 1/10th of how many I read over the three week break.

8. What is your most recent personal project?

TO TAKE BETTER PHOTOS. For both Instagram and blog. I think I’ve succeeded for my newest theme (to come out in a few days) on Instagram but I haven’t made much progress for the blog. At this point I’m trying to use my Instagram photos for the blog as well, but I’m not very happy with it.

There’s no time, y’all! I am doing a small project for the college, though. Does that count?

9. Tell us something that you think about often.

The uselessness of this way of life and how almost everyone is depressed. Yes I’m a real downer in real life.

10. Give us something that is your favourite but make it oddly specific.

I like cute socks. I really REALLY like them. I’m in love with them. They’re the highlight of my day most days now. I got my mom to buy me a few pairs of cute socks recently (I had coloured but not printed) and now whenever I need a pick up, I look at my socks.

11. Say the first thing that pops into your mind.

K bro.

This is my signature line and I’m not even sorry 😂

I didn’t really get tagged for this so if you want to do this tag, consider yourself tagged!

Do you talk about books significantly more than anything else? Name an oddly specific thing you love. What songs are you loving at the moment? Let me know below!

  1. Ahh I LOVE cute socks too! I don’t have many of them but I have some sushi socks and I was wearing them the other day and my sister was just like: WHY.😂😂 Because they’re cute okay?! I need no explanation for wanting to wear sushi socks hahaha. Ahem.

    Also I do not understand half the memes that go round.😂 Like some crack me up so bad but the Walmart Yodelling kid confuses me no end? I’m not totally sure how it’s special buuut okay. But there are so many vines I laugh at so much…and yes i know Vine is dead but it’s still funny on youtube!!

    My life is like 98% books so I fail at tags where I have to confess I do things outside of books. WHAT IS LIFE LIKE OUTSIDE OF BOOKS.😂

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Haha I totally get it!

      Somehow I never got into vines even though they’re SUPER popular 🤷 I just spend the time I’m not reading binge-watching shows 😂
