Sunshine Blogger Tag| Being Healthy (which is the worst), My Favorite Cartoons + THE GREATEST GIF YOU WILL EVER SEE

Camp NaNo has been taking over my life because for every word that I enter into the progress bar, I've written two (I've had to replot each scene as I go), so I'm lucky to find a quick moment to blog. 
Oh my goodness, I feel so popular. I've gotten SO many tags recently (like, three, but shh. Let me have my moment). Florid Sword was a darling and tagged me for the Sunshine Blogger tag. Thanks so much! As I have said a million times (and if you can guess what I'm about to say, you get a cookie), I love being tagged. 

Yes, I reused the picture from the last Sunshine tag. Sue me.

what is your favorite fast food place?
My favorite fast food in the whole wide world is Panda Express. While my sister would ask to go to fancy restaurants for her birthday, I wanted Panda Express for mine. Nothing can beat the cheap, Americanized Chinese food. Bethany (my sister. Also shameless promotion because LOOK AT WHAT SHE DOES. I'm so proud of her). has taken me to Panda Express for my birthday present multiple times, and it has been the best present ever. 
But guess what? I am gluten free, dairy free, sugar free (mostly), and soy free (ish). That means no more favorite food for me. Also, I'm pretty sure Panda Express knows that I've stopped going. The panda mafia is on to me.

See? They're mean.
if you could learn any foreign language, which would it be?
Right now I am learning Spanish, I'm learning ASL (which I doubt is technically foreign, but whatevs. It's a different language. Or lack thereoff), and I know a little Gaelic. My goal is to be fluent in:
- Spanish
- ASL
- French
- Arabic
I love languages, but I'm also lazy, so you can see my problem. Also I'm learning all of this on my own?? So I have no obligation and can drop any language at any moment. A recipe for success. 

what is your personal favorite animated film of all time?
Why would you ask this? I can't decide. I think I can narrow it down to my two favorites (a word which here means "in about 5 seconds I'm going to think of another favorite, but if I thought through things, we'd be here all day")
Treasure Planet
BEAUTY. 
Treasure Planet has captured my heart in a way that no other cartoon can. LITERALLY, I HAVE NO WORDS (and we all know that doesn't happen often).

I wanted to be her (still do, tbh).
The animation, the characters, the fresh take on Treasure Island: all flawless. It's like the writers sat down and said "Okay, so we're remaking Treasure Island. You know the book with the pirates? So that, but in space." and then the rest of the team is like "Woah, that was revolutionary, Bob. Let's do it." Honestly, I'm fine with that. I would love it if they could take every classic and just add space. 

The Prince of Egypt

LOOK. LOOK HOW AMAZING.
This is the best Bible adaptation I've ever seen (So many get it all wrong. Goodness knows there ain't no sentient rock beings in the Bible. Lookin' right at you Noah. Staring right at you.). Can we just appreciate how amazing Moses' wife is?

Look at her fighting the patriarchy. Go her. She ain't no one's desert flower. Nu'uh.
would you rather be stranded on a deserted island, Antarctica (with supplies to stay warm), or a rugged mountain?
Do I have to pick? Couldn't I just take my private jet to any of them whenever I feel like it (yes, I own a private jet. It's actually a lot like Wonder Woman's jet. Invisible.)?
Deserted island pros and cons:
  • I'm all alone with my thoughts.
  • I can catch up on my TBR (Though tbh, it might continue to grow. I'm pretty sure it grows on it's own now, guys).
  • If it's a deserted island, I would want it to be sunny and have a beach
  • but that also means really hot, and I melt in anything higher than 70 degrees (fahrenheit, to those who live outside the US. Can you imagine if I was able to survive 70 Celsius? I would be awesome.)
  • (And probably on fire)

Except it would be less superhero-y, and more "I'm dead"

Antarctica pros and cons:

  • OMG SNOW EVERYWHERE. 
  • also ice, but shh, I won't tell if you won't.
  • I would live in an igloo and make friends with the penguins. Yes, that sounds very good.
  • but I might get cold because...you know, ice everywhere. 
  • As long as I have soup and tea, I'm good.
Rugged mountain pros and cons:

  • The rugged mountain is probably closest to the terrain of where I live now, and I would love to have a change of scenery (as long as that change is not deathly cold or blindingly hot), I would love to see a whole new world, shining, shimmering, splendid (dangit, I'm doing Aladdin again, aren't I?). 
  • And if I have the mountain all to myself, then I could build a treehouse in every tree and connect them all by bridges!! 
  • yes.
  • this is a good plan.
In Conclusion: I DON'T KNOW!! I shouldn't be allowed to make decisions, but either the island or Antarctica (because of the penguins, guys, the penguins). 


what is your favorite episode of Star Wars?
Guess.

It's just so beautiful...
what is your favorite school subject?
Heh, not math.

Is reading a subject? Or is watching the Office a subject? Because I excel in both. 

if you could spend the rest of your life doing any career you want, what would it be and why?
I would be a writer. That's what I've always wanted to be, and that's what I always will want to do (but how to make money off of it...that's the question)

Writing is my life. In fact, I'm even writing right now, so clearly I am made to be a writer.

This is one of my favorite gifs ever. 
what is your favorite book that no one has ever heard of?
How about one of mine? Or possibly Summer of the Gypsy Moths

Image result for summer of the gypsy moths
This book has a special place in my heart as being COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY BIZARRE. The premise does not prepare you for what is inside. It says that "tragedy strikes", and that phrase combined with the cover tells me that one of them had a boy break up with them or something burns down, but no. TRAGEDY STRIKES. (Caution: spoiler ahead. Highlight the blank space if you would like to see said spoiler) And now they're burying someone beneath the pumpkin patch.  

which do you prefer: spaghetti or Chinese food?
I mean, there's a reason the panda mafia is after me. I was a hardcore Chinese food (excuse me, Americanized Chinese food) fan, but now all I can eat is...kale, and a few carrots. I feel like a rabbit.

Thanks again Florid Sword for tagging me! Since it's Camp NaNo and most of my brain power has deserted me, I'm going to tag others with these same questions. 

I tag: Hamlette@The Edge of the Precipice
Chloe Linn@Rustling Thoughts
Kate@Story and Dark Chocolate

What's a book you love that no one has heard of? Will anyone move with me to Antarctica? And can you bring a healthy supply of blankets and hot cocoa. Cool, thanks. Is there a language you wish you could learn (or do you know a language)? Not to brag or anything, but I know English really well, so....yeah.

  1. Yeah, you're welcome! This was fun! I had completely forgotten about asking these questions XD
    I love the Five Stones Trilogy, so... yeah. I won't move to Antarctica I don't think - I'd much prefer the mountains - but whatever. I'll send you blankets :D
    I'm learning Italian and Biblical Greek right now, but I kind of want to learn Spanish at some point and I know a little Biblical Hebrew. Fun, right?
    I know English too! 5% of the time, that is. XD

    1. These are great questions!! :)
      And I will take as many blankets as I can get. Have so much fun in the mountains. :D
      That's awesome!! I've always thought it would be cool to learn Biblical language. GO YOU!!
      Heh, I can relate. XD

  2. You know a little Gaelic? That's awesome! I tried learning it once, while a course was offered free by a library program. It was tricky, but fun. I'd love to learn enough to be fluent...and then go live in Scotland.

    I'm blown away by The Prince of Egypt. A movie that actually respects the biblical story? Woah! And such animation, too. Look at the woosh of the waves, the subtle addition of spittle- beautiful. It's been a long time since I've last seen the film, though. I need to watch it again, and soon. I've never seen Treasure Planet, however.

    Antarctica? Sorry, you're on your own. I need greenery in my scenery. (but being surrounded by penguins IS kind of tempting)

    1. Yeah, I learned it through a library program, too! I wonder if it was the same (Mango Languages??).

      RIGHT?! That movie still amazes me. It's attention to details and beauty and just ASJKEDLFG. Ooo, I encourage you to watch Treasure Planet. It is very beautiful, as well.

      BUT PENGUINS. AND SNOW.

  3. Summer of the Gypsy Moths disturbed me, so I didn't finish. I like not ghoulish Middle Grade. Eep.

    I still haven't watched Treasure Planet. My sisters didn't like it and won't watch it with me. I haven't watched Prince of Egypt in a decade (and have only watched it once), but my sisters were recently singing and humming and praising the music, so clearly I need to rewatch it.

    Also, PSA. Don't be offended, but I'm a nerd (and also recently discovered this), takes a deep breath, BUT I think you mean Irish or Irish Gaelic because Gaelic is NOT one language. Gaelic/Goidelic is a Celtic language group comprised of three languages: Irish, Scottish, and Manx. Brittonic group of Celtic languages includes: Cornish, Welsh, and Breton. I didn't realize this, I meant Irish (Gaeilge) but looked for Gaelic dictionaries (I've wiped out the Irish/Gaelic (everyones confused on this) section at Half Price a couple times) and now have a Scottish (Gàidhlig) one also. Also, apparently they are dialect languages (though perhaps not in modern times). Oops. Duolingo offers Irish (I've done a little, when I was trying to do like 4 languages at once, and it is HARD, but I still want to learn it, I've always thought it romantic).

    1. Aw, that's not good. It is definitely not for everyone.

      Ah, for some reason a lot of people don't like Treasure Planet that much, but something about it really just connected with me.

      Oh no, you didn't offend me at all. I should have specified that I was talking about Scottish Gaelic. I know there is a big difference. Scottish Gaelic is the one that is still in use in some parts, so I always assume that people know that's what I'm talking about, but in the future I will be sure to be more specific. :)

  4. Thanks for the tag! I had a professor in college who had once lived in Antarctica while studying penguins or something. He was highly amusing.

    I will fill the tag out... when I have time :-D

  5. Ah my goodness!! I LOVE Prince of Egypt! Such a wonderful (although a bit inaccurate) movie. And that is one pretty great gif.

    1. IT'S SO GOOD!! I hope that one day there will be an adaptation that is accurate AND amazing, but I suppose Prince of Egypt is as close as we're going to get. XD

  6. You can speak Gaelic???? That is too cool! I would love to learn, it is so beautiful... Like you, I really enjoy learning languages, but I am also lazy... #dilemma

    ALSO THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAGGING ME EEEEEPP!!! I LOVE TAGS AND THIS WILL BE NICE BECAUSE I AM SO BUSY WITH NANO...
