this is a test
Hey guys! Since I basically disappeared for the last three months, and it’s been a while since my last get to know me post (3 years ago!), I thought I would do that today. I’m sure most of you know about Vouge’s “73 questions” video interviews…this is (sort of)* my own take on that.
*inspired by someone’s blog post I saw a long time ago but forgot whose blog it was on so kudos to you, whoever thought of this.
Why 43 questions? Because I got tired of typing them, that’s why.
43 questions with grace
1. What’s your favorite movie?
ooh so hard, I love pretty much anything Disney, and I’m also a bit of a Star Wars nerd haha

Hmm, I’m not currently watching any tv shows, but if anyone has any recs, I would greatly appreciate it. :)
7. On a scale of 1 to 10 how excited are you about life right now?
Well I mean currently there’s a pandemic so we’re all confined to our houses cause people are dying and also I’m moving and it’s nearing the end of the school year which= sTress and also it’s an election year and you know how people get about that but it’s FINE.
In all seriousness though, I am very blessed, and I’m just trusting in the fact that God is with me no matter what, and yeah, while things might seem a little rough in the world right now, that doesn’t mean I’m not excited about life, it just means this point in time is a little weird. ;) So I’ll say a 6.
