Ambition: To become a published author. And neaten up my handwriting (seriously, an aspiring author should have neat handwriting)! Oh, and become a witch (the Harry Potter kind, not the double, double toil and trouble kind). I'd also like to own a broomstick (preferably a Firebolt). And a Niffler. A room of requirement would be pretty handy. And a magic wand.
Bad Habits: I procrastinate (but I'm working on that). I also bite my nails (and I really do want to quit. Anyone have any tips? I've tried everything).
Celebrity Crushes: Hmm, I've never really had a celebrity crush, but I guess I'll say Adam Levine because he's cute, creative, talented, and geeky (he is)!
Drink: Butterbeer. (There are some awesome recipes out there. Go look one up)!
Education: Real education: homeschool. Dream education: Hogwarts. (*Sigh*).
Food: Favorite: Sushi. Least favorite: Raisins and most nuts (excluding cashews and certain types of peanuts). I also love popcorn (when I don't have a stupid orthodontic appliance in, which I do now--braces, ugh), chocolate, and berries of any kind.
Guilty Pleasures: Why do we call these guilty pleasures again? Should we feel bad for enjoying life? Anyway, I'd say chocolate and peanut butter (Reese's anyone?), video games (mostly Webkinz and Minecraft), reading, writing, and good TV shows (new favorites include Friends and Gilmore Girls, but don't ruin anything for me because this is my first time watching both)!
Hometown: I was born in Arizona, but I've lived in a small town in Pennsylvania for ten years now.
Ice Cream: Chocolate and peanut butter. All the way. (My second favorite is the "Double Dunker" flavor, and, as my mom says, it tastes like Dunkin Donuts smells).
Jonesing for: (I'm not positive, but I think this means what am I craving--?). Then I guess right now I'm "Jonesing for" a sequel to the Harry Potter series, Allegiant by Veronica Roth, the next two books in The Host series, and a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup (but I'm "Jonesing" for that all the time).
Kryptonite: Cute puppies. I just have to pet every single one of them.
Look-a-like: Hermione Granger, when I first get up in the morning. (One of the perks of having thick, brown hair. I can easily dress up as her for Halloween, after messing up my hair, which I did a few years back).
Movie: Favorites: Any of the "Harry Potter" movies, "The Hunger Games," "The Help," "The King's Speech," "Wreck-It Ralph," and any of the "Toy Story" movies. Movies I think could have been better: "The Host." It was good, because I loved the book, but some of the actors and actresses were really bad, and some of the scenes weren't realistic to the book. (In one scene, a character is forced to cut herself with a knife, and she doesn't even flinch when it happens. She just stares at the blood).
Nickname: I don't have any nicknames, seeing as the only nickname that could come from "Kate" is "Katie" (which I hate. It sounds condescending to me, but I don't know why). The nickname I love from being online is MV which stands for Magic Violinist.
Obsessions: Reading. Writing. Harry Potter. Taylor Swift. The Civil Wars (the band). Indie music. Chocolate and peanut butter. My family. My Friends. My dog Scout. Cute puppies. Yellow. Sunflowers. The beach. Fantasy novels. Etc. . . .
Perfume: Yuck. I hate perfume. And scented hairspray. But I do love how Taylor Swift describes her perfume ("Wonderstruck") on the Ellen show. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a video of her talking about it, but I was able to find a "commercial" for it.
Quirk: I straighten any crooked object. If three pencils are next to each other on a table, but one of them isn't completely aligned with the others, I'll fix it. It bothers me if things aren't perfectly straightened like that.
Regret: I have no regrets. I won't do anything that I think I might regret later.
Starbucks: Is okay. I really don't like coffee (unless it's a pumpkin latte), and the only drinks I like there are hot chocolate and their hot apple cider drink. I do like their big cookies, though.
The Last Book You Read: Cinder by Marissa Meyer. It was surprisingly good, and I can't wait for the next installments in The Lunar Chronicles.
Unique Feature: I can't think of any unique features I have. I don't have any freckles, scars, birthmarks, or any other unusual marks/spots/features.
Vacation: My favorite vacation was the one our family took to Florida to go to Harry Potter World. Best. Amusement. Park. Ever.
Wine: I don't know anything about wine. Or any kind of alcohol.
X: I am Xtra confused about this space.
Years: Years I've been alive: 13. Years ahead of me: ??? (Hopefully many).
Zen: Reading and writing makes me calm, as does hot chocolate and Scout.
I tag you all! If you read this post you are now doomed to write an ABC post about your life! (Mwa ha haaaaaaa).
