The Infinity Dreams Tag

Hello, readers! I have another tag today to share with you. Abi from The Left-Handed Typist nominated me for The Infinity Dreams Tag! It looks super fun, so thanks, Abi!
Disclaimer: The is the longest post I think I've ever written, so please stick around and don't be disappointed when next week's post is much shorter!
Okay, here goes: 


1. Thank the blogger who tagged you.
2. Tell us 11 facts about yourself.
3. Answer the 11 questions given to you.
4. Tag 11 bloggers and give them 11 new questions to answer.

11 facts about me? Whuuuut? Okay, okay!)

1. I'm trying very hard to think of 11 things that you might want to know about me that I can share with you...

2. I broke my wrist when I was 6 years old.

3. I have a thing for notebooks- I love to collect pretty ones, but I'm afraid to start writing in them, because then they'd be messed up and I think it may have worked better for that subject........

4. My hair does.not.curl. It doesn't matter if it's heat curlers, rag curlers, or whatever! (FYI, it's because my hair is so heavy. I could cut it off to shoulder-length so I could curl it, but that would not be my thing.)

5. I love peppermint ice cream. Not mint-chocolate chip, but peppermint, the kind with chunks of real peppermint in it.There's a big difference. *drools*

6. I love to cook and bake, and have been doing so since I was about 7.

7. My bookshelves must be arranged neatly. Books in a series belong together, with everything in descending height and size. I am not a particularly tidy person in other areas (as my desk can attribute to!). but I must have my bookshelves in order!

8. I don't like raw spinach. I've tried and tried to like it -and I keep on trying- but I'm just not there yet!

9. I am a speed-reader, and am currently trying to reduce my natural speed a bit, so I can enjoy my books longer and rad more carefully. (Fellow speed-readers, any tips?) ;P

10.  I never wear heels. I guess partly because I'm already rather tall and I don't like people commenting constantly about it,  and partly because I just  prefer cute flats! =)

11. I love thunderstorms! Don't you? ;)

~Abi's Questions~

1. What is your favorite month of the year?
Hmm, probably September or October. I love the early fall months!

2. When buying a book cheap, do you prefer an e-book or a used paperback?
Unless it's super torn-up, I normally prefer real books you can hold. So a used paperback. ;P

3. If you could smell one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Well, I'd much prefer to have a variety, but I love the fresh smell in the air after a storm. 

4. Have you ever read a Shakespeare play (in old English)? If so, which one(s)?
No, I haven't ever read a complete one!

5. What are your birthday traditions?
The birthday person gets to pick what's for dinner, and they get some special privileges (like no chores that day.... :) Yeah, nothing epic, but it's fun!

6. Do you prefer to write by hand or type things up?
I like to write my first "extremely-rough-drafts" by hand, then from there I normally type things out :D

7. What is your favorite style of house (cabin, modern, Victorian, beach, etc)?
I love old Victorian-style houses, but I'm not sure I'd actually want to live in one all the time! I'd probably prefer to live in a huge country farmhouse. ;) 

8. Wide rule or college rule paper?
College rule! I just write better on it somehow

9. What is your least favorite chore?
Well, I'd have to say cleaning bathrooms-- specifically, cleaning bathrooms after 3 little boys have used them! I'm working being cheerful on that one. :D

10. How long have you had your blog and what is one tip you would share?
I've only been blogging for three months, so I'm still pretty new to the blogging world. But prior to actually publishing my first post, I was planning for quite a while!  One thing I wish I would have known when I first started thinking about a blog is to stop comparing your blog to others! It only makes you dissatisfied with what you have, and everything isn't equal! 

11. If you could visit one fictional world, which would it be?
Ack. must I decide?!  I'd have to say  Avonlea... for the moment! EDIT: NARNIA!!!!! 

~My Questions~

1. What is your favorite name that starts with K?
2. What are your birthday traditions?
3. Do you prefer to write by hand, or type things up?
4. Do you collect anything?
5. What is your least favorite chore?
6. How long have you had your blog, and what is one tip you would share?
7. Do you prefer to read short blog posts, or long ones, and why?
8. What is your favorite month of the year?
9. If you were given $100, what would you do with it?
10. If you could visit one fictional world, which would it be?
11. Do you write your blog posts way ahead of time, or do you tend to write them on the spur of the moment?

    2. Thanks! This looks fun!

  2. Ooooh, Emily! We are so similar...like my books HAVE to be organized, I hate raw spinach, I don't like E-books, we have the same birthday traditions, I love Victorian houses, but would rather live in a farmhouse, cleaning bathrooms is definitely my least favorite chore(I mean I have 5 brothers:D), I totally agree with you on the blogging tip, and Avonlea would be an amazing place to visit!!! Like wow! We're pretty similar...=D

    1. Wow, Hannah! I didn't realize that we were so similar! Wait, you don't like spinach either? *high fives* Everyone else I know seems to love it... :P

    2. *high fives back* Spinach=yuck. =D LOL

  6. Replies
    1. Your welcome! And thanks for following my blog as well. =)

  7. Sorry, no tips on how to slow down your reading. I have the worst time with that too. When I get into a really good book, I can't stop reading and it's over before I know it!

    And yes, yes, yes. I so prefer paperbacks, but I'll read Kindle books if the others are too expensive.

    That giveaway is amazing. What wouldn't I give to win it??? Oh wow, thanks for letting us know!

    1. Ah, well, if I ever find any tips to slow me down, I'll share! XD
      Yes, if I can get a ebook for free or cheaper, I'll certainly read it but I definitly prefer real books. ;)
      The giveaway is pretty amazing, right? I found it through someone else, so I wanted to pass it on! =)

    2. Please do! :) I love Jaye L. Knight's books under her previous names and I just ordered Resistance. It would be so great to win more of her series as well as the other books! We'll see!

  8. Oof oof UGH CLEANING BATHROOMS UGH. I have two little brothers and I thought /they/ made a mess but THREE?? Ugh. You have my condolences. *pats*

    Thanks for tagging me! I look forward to doing it :D

    1. Yeah, cleaning bathrooms is bad enough, but little brothers don't help very much.. XD
