hullo all! so it’s been like a month or so since i actually hit 100 followers (it’s at 120 now! yeeee), but at long last, i have finally compiled and answered all of your questions for you. happy reading and i’ll be back again soonish. it is getting close to finals week though, so studying is very important and i’m going to be needing to focus more on that so apologize if my absence is more extended, at least until christmas break and i’ll be trying to write more than i have been. also, the way the questions are formatted is that i put the names of the person who asked them at the end of all their questions, like the first two were asked by elm so her link is next to the second one, etc, etc.
if you could paint the sky a different colour, what would it be and why?
purple, because i love sunsets/rises with purple in them, i just think they’re so beautiful. also because that hole song, “and the sky was made of amythest”, that just sounds so pretty to me. i love driving to school in the morning because there’s this one hill i always stop at the light on and the sunrise just peeks over the top of it ahhhh.
if you had to burn one of your favourite books to light a fire, otherwise you’d die, which one would you sacrifice? (elm)
why would you ask thissssss ughhhhhh. this feels like a crime against books, but i think if i had to pick it’d have to be the mysterious benedict society because i accidentally bought the first book of the series in a different set than the other three so i’d burn it and then replace it with a new one that matches the rest of the series.
what is the definitive best meme? (leo)
what is your favourite thing to do when you are feeling down?
i usually put on my favorite ravenclaw sweat pants and a sweater, listen to hamilton, write a bit of either a post or my own personal whatever, maybe scroll through pinterest or my reader, drink a few peppermint mochas (my addiction), eat some dark chocolate and oyster crackers, pop on a blackhead strip or other face mask or something, or watch some netflix or youtube. just things that make me happy and relaxed and feel good that don’t require much effort.
would you rather have the superpower to be invisible or have super speed?
invisibility probably since running is not mah thang. in my opinion, shape shifting is the ultimate superpower so that’s what i’d want if i had the choice of anything but invisibility for sure out of those two.
how did you find out about santa being not real? (lia)
i don’t really know specifically? i’ve always been a very realistic person, even as a child, so i think i just kinda understood it as time went by. it was probably sometime around when i was 7 or 8 that it happened though, i was a very mature child.
what is your opinion on the us election?
blech. that is all.
what is your dream role to play in a theatre thingy?
katherina in the taming of the shrew. i read for her in eighth grade when we read the book in class and ever since then i’ve just wanted to really be her in a real performance of the play. also that’s one of my favorite shakespeares so honestly if i could just be in it at all i’d be happy.
what inspired your blog name?
i really love butterflies and i felt like i needed to express that i’m not just a cutesy little butterfly loving girl. hence my adding the “punk” to it, since that’s my general favorite genre of music.
would you ever become non-anonymous (aka share pictures of yourself, last name, etc)? (trish)
ummm i don’t think i’d share my last name since it’s super uncommon and it’d be super easy to find me in real life. i have shared a few past pictures of myself, but just as a life update here’s a good picture from right after i cut my hair most recently so y’all know who it is behind the keyboard.
also this photo is originally from my personal instagram, which if you want to follow and see my real life and such you can comment below telling me your @ and i’ll follow you. i do ask that it be your personal account if you have one though (if you don’t you’re totally fine too, just let me know that), since i did have a blog insta but went fully personal with my social media around a month ago. so if you want to see my personal life, i’d just prefer that i saw yours as well so that we’re on the same page. also, i’m one of those people on instagram who literally will like every single one of your photos after i follow you so there’s that. shameless self promo over.
if you could have a profitable, successful business what would it be?
kyla and i decided last year after reading mr penumbra’s 24 hour bookstore that we want to open a 24 hour bookstore of our own. so i’d say that’d be it, i think i’d love beyond all else to own a bookstore open 24 hours a day and just everything that goes along with it. also being able to go in and write while running the counter during the night shift, being the one who picks the books to order, knowing all the regulars, oooooo having a coffee shop inside! somewhere near a college campus, probably in seattle… allowing dogs inside because dogs are awesome. like, that sounds like a dream to me, i waaaant it.
if you could spend a day with anyone in the world dead or alive who would it be and what would you do?
hehe the person who asked the question probably. if i could spend a day with anyone, it would be sav. i’d go to london, hang out with him and the other london bloggers, then fly him to seattle with me, take over the target there, and then not let him go back to england so that we can actually hang out for longer than a day. cheating the system like a cool kid.
what would be the title of your autobiography?
“the girl who never left her house”
if there were a real life purge what would you do?
hide in my room until it was over. although if i were feeling particularly adventurous i might go out into the world in my locked car to meet up with my friends and hang out and do whatever they wanted to but i probably wouldn’t participate in the “do whatever because nothing is illegal” part of it.
what has been your favourite and least favourite meme of 2016? (sav)
i think my favorite meme has probably been “don’t talk to me or my son ever again” (that was 2016 right? i honestly don’t even remember) and my least favorite was damn daniel. it was just stupid, and i remember when it first became a thing i watched the video with one of my friends and saying to her that this probably wouldn’t last more than two weeks before it was over. also rip everyone named daniel or who owns white vans in that month or so that people kept it alive, you truly do have the patience of god himself.
do you like cafe rio? if so what’s your order?
i do! i don’t get it very often though because there’s only one in my area and it’s in a part of our city we don’t go to often, but i usually get their chicken nachos. i also really like the enchiladas but that’s mostly because i just really like enchiladas…
if you could kiss one blogger who would it be? (aspen)
probably no one since we say “if you could”. if the question were “if you had to” though, i’m not repelled by any blogger i’ve spoken to so i don’t think if i had to choose one it’d really be a quandary for me. that’s not really an answer to this question but i’m tired so it’s good enough.
if you could meet anyone from anytime in history who would it be and why? (ruby)
gahhhhhh i have no clue… is what i wrote before i got a clue. and i still don’t have a clue. i literally can’t think of anyone. janis joplin? sylvia plath? angelica schuyler? the female revolutionary war spy who went by the number 355 and whose real identity is unknown to this day? one of those, but i either can’t choose or can’t think of a better one.
tell an embarrassing story?
who’s your role model and why?
stevie nicks. or emma watson. like, mesh the two of them together and that’s my role model, there ya go.
what’s your favorite memory? (fibit)
i honestly don’t really have one. anytime involving being with my friends and just goofing around, hanging out backstage with my fam, or anytime i’ve been genuinely happy. which at the moment i can’t think of a specific time but i’m still aware that those moments exist in my head somewhere.
