The Get-To-Know-Me Tag
I've come across a tag that looks fun, so clearly I'm going to do it like the blogging outlaw I am.
Name: Evangeline Yackel. Some are under the impression that I am Laura Yackel, but I just use my mother's account because I am too lazy to change it to my own by now.
Nicknames: Ev, Gert, Banjo, Vanvan, and Hobbit Friend.
Birthday: October 19th.
Place of Birth: Good ol' Washington.
Star Sign: Um *googles my sign* Libra?
Occupation: Writer. Granted, I am not being paid for this, but it's still my occupation right now.
Hair color: I am a natural blonde, but not like a pretty golden-blonde. It's more of a dishwater blonde. I plan on dying my hair brunette, blue (again), and then red.
Hair length: It's just past my shoulder, and I hope to cut it soon.
Eye color: Blue!
Best feature: Uh...my winning wit and personal charm?
Piercings: Nada. I've never understood the appeal of having one's ears pierced, but hey, each to their own.
Tattoo: Maybe one day, but today is not that day.
Righty or Lefty: Righty!
Best friend: The first best friend that I can remember was Emma. We were nicknamed the "trouble twins". Though I do have vague memories of a kid named Ocean when I was toddler.
Award: Nothing that I can think of.
Sport: I've never actually played an official sport, but I've played many a backyard baseball game.
Real holiday: Halloween. Since I'm an October baby, Halloween is the closest. Though the first holiday I remember is Christmas.
*I am the most indecisive person ever, so I will give a couple options that come to mind first.
Film: Why would you ask this? Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, Mighty Joe Young, Secondhand Lions, and Disney. Everything Disney.
TV Show: UHH *panics* Agent Carter, Arrow, Sherlock, Doctor Who, When Calls the Heart, Merlin, OUAT, and BBC Robin Hood.
Color: Blue forever.
Song: So many. The Waiting by Jamie Grace. Saturn by Sleeping At Last. Actually, like, every Sleeping At Last song. How is all their music so beautiful and perfect? Fight Song by Rachel Platten. Standing By by Pentatonix. Oceans by Hillsong United. The entire Smoke+Mirrors by Imagine Dragons.
Restaurant: I don't think it's technically a restaurant, but there is this place called Gyro Delight that has the best food. Seriously. Or Panda Express. I don't go to a lot of restaurants.
Shop: Barnes&Noble or Powell's Bookstore in Portland (it's a bookstore with four floors that has a map. A MAP!)
Books: Not cool, bro. I can't decide! All the books on my bookshelf.
Shoes: Combat boots. Mainly because I hate tying laces, (I'm just really lazy like that) so zip-up combat boots are a gift from heaven.
Feeling: Happy, productive, kind of tired.
Single or taken: Taken. Sorry to anyone who wants to date me, but I am most definitely taken by the fictional guys I'm with.
Eating: Always. Oh, you meant what am I eating right now? Banana ice cream that is not actually ice cream. It's pretty much just frozen bananas put through a food processor. It's not nearly as sad as it sounds, I promise. I get to add chocolate chips and everything!
Thinking about: All the editing I need to do.
Watching: When Calls the Heart.
Wearing: My pajama pants, a tank top, and a GIANT grey sweater that is my happy place.
*Do you mean the giant swirling vortex of doom?
Want children: Unsure. We'll see what God has in store for me.
Want to be married: Yeah! What girl doesn't? What girl hasn't thought about how she'll meet her husband? ...because I have most definitely never done that. Ever. *whistles nervously*
Careers in mind: *takes deep breath* Writer, teacher, journalist, actor, and missionary. Wish me luck.
Where you want to live: Everywhere. If I could, I would travel the world, rarely settling down in one place. But realistically, Washington. #1. This state has everything, desert, rainforest, beach, it's perfect. #2. All my friends and family are here. #3. I could never leave my wonderful rainy state.
Though I do want to travel as much as possible.
do you believe in
God: Absolutely, without a doubt.
Miracles:Once again: absolutely.
Love at first sight: Hm, no. I wish I could because the idea of it is quite lovely, but I don't believe that someone can truly fall in love in one glance. I believe in attraction-at-first-sight, but not love.
Ghosts: I believe in the supernatural world around us i.e. demons, angels, but not like, haunt your attic, unfinished business ghosts.
Aliens: No, and I have biblical proof/logic that backs me up.
Soul mates: Of course, I believe that God designs two people to be soul mates, and that from the moment we open our eyes, God already has our entire life planned out, along with who we marry and what we do with our life. Whether or not we listen to Him and follow that plan is a different story.
Hell: Well, the two kinda go hand-in-hand.
Kissing on the first date: I do not believe in kissing until you are married. That is such a special, sacred thing that shouldn't be shared with anyone else other than your soulmate.
Yourself: I don't believe in myself. I believe in God's ability to make my life something great. I believe in God's will for me. Me on my own will fail. I will never reach my full potential or do all that I want to do on my own.
