I Was Tagged :D

Mary at Coffee, Yarn, and Words tagged me so now I am doing this blog activity. Here are the rules:

1. Post these rules.
2. Post a photo of yourself and then write eleven things about yourself.
3. Answer the questions for you in the original post.
4. Create eleven new questions and then tag three people to answer them.
5. Go to their blog and tell them you have tagged them.

1. I am homeschooled and I'm part of the home school group my mom set up where I met my best friend.
2. There are five people in my family: my mom, my dad, my brother, me, and our adorable shi-chon puppy named Scout (who is technically not a person but I think she counts). ;)
3. My favorite food is sushi and my favorite drink is pink lemonade.
4. I've been to the midnight release of the seventh Harry Potter book, both parts of the Deathly Hallows movie, and the Hunger Games movie. That's right, FOUR midnight showings/releases. ;)
5. In order, my favorite book series are Harry Potter, the Hunger Games, Percy Jackson, Fablehaven, and the Song of the Lioness.
6. My favorite movies are "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" and "The Hunger Games."
7. My favorite stuffed animal is a very dirty, old, stuffed cat named Menedy that I've had since I was two or three.
8. I am 12 and my favorite color is yellow.
9. My favorite singer is Taylor Swift and my favorite songs are "Who Says" by Selena Gomez, "Radio Radio" by Brooke White, "Safe and Sound" by Taylor Swift, "Enchanted" by Taylor Swift, and "Eyes Open" by Taylor Swift.
10. I want to be an author when I grow up and I read a write a ton. I have participated in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) three years in a row now. :D
11. I am a nerd and I love to learn. :D

Mary's questions for me:

1. If you were to write a book about your life, what would the title be? "Type Book Title Here." It's creative and funny. :D
2. If you were to change your name, what name would you choose? I wouldn't change my name. I love my name. But if I had to, I'd change it to Katherine or Hermione. (Hermione is my favorite book character and Katherine is similar to my name).
3. What is your favorite school subject and why? Writing. Writing writing writing. I love to write. I especially love creative writing. When you're writing fiction, you're in charge. You control the characters and the story. You decide the fate of everyone and everything in the book. You can create your own world. My second favorite subject is history because it's like reading a story.
4. What is your favorite hairstyle? I love long, straight hair. I also like wavy, but on me I like long and straight hair.
5. In your dream your pet would be . . . Well, since I already have a dog, I'd say a pegasus. I love horses, but I would love to fly (not by an airplane or a vehicle, just fly like a superhero), so it's the perfect combination! :D
6. Is there a character in a book, movie, or TV show that you think is like you? What about this character makes her similar to you? Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series. She's smart, and witty, and doesn't take anyone's crap. Her hair is even the same color as mine (well, mine's darker, but it's close enough) and my hair looks like hers when I get out of bed. ;)
7. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would that be? I like myself the way I am and I wouldn't change anything about my personality or appearance. Well, I guess I would make myself taller, but other than that . . . ;)
8. What is your favorite thing about yourself? Ugh, I hate these questions. I always sound all full of myself when I answer them. :P But I guess I like that I'm a good friend. I'm thoughtful, and friendly, and I'm a good listener. (I'm also a good talker). ;)
9. What is your favorite hobby? Reading and writing. :D
10. What is the riskiest thing you've ever done? I don't think I've ever done anything "risky" although I am a bit of a daredevil when it comes to amusement park rides. ;)
11. If you could have any superpower, which one would you choose? The ability to fly. Oh my gosh, I would love to be able to fly! :D I could go anywhere I wanted and it would be so much fun! :D (If anyone has an old broomstick I could take, leave a comment. Oh, and please include a quaffle, a snitch, two bludgers, and two beaters' bats). ;)

My questions for the people I tag:

1. What is your favorite color and why?
2. What is your favorite book and why?
3. What is your favorite movie and why?
4. What is your dream pet and why?
5. What is your dream vacation and why?
6. What is your favorite song and why?
7. What do you daydream about?
8. Who is your best friend and why?
9. Is there a famous person you would love to meet? Why would you want to meet the person?
10. Do you sing in the shower?
11. Do you ever think about doing something to change the world? If you do, what would you want to change? It could be a law or a different way of doing something.

I'm going to tag Sushi and Pizza, Duct Tape World, and Juice Box! :D Have fun! :D
