In a year that I’m saying, “Yolo” with my creative side (hence why some of my New Year’s resolutions are to post three times a month on my YouTube channel and post weekly on my blog with no rules about the subject matter), I have decided to say “Yolo” and post something way different on my blog this week.
A few weeks ago, a fellow blogger named Paul, or “The Captain,” followed my site. This was super exciting for me because my blog is quite small and it means a lot when some random person might be interested in what I have to say. All I know about Paul is that he loves blogging, enjoys watching The Bachelor, and is super friendly. I followed him back, of course, and while I think all of his posts are generally intriguing, one stuck out to me. The post — which can be read here — challenged his followers and other bloggers to take a quiz. The quiz is one Paul made up with no definite grading system nor outline of what qualifies as a right or wrong answer. So basically, it’s a huge mystery to us all and even a bit to Paul. The quiz is due on January 27, which is perfect because I post on Wednesdays. I decided to give the quiz a shot because I figured at the very least it will get my brain churning. Without further adieu, here it goes.
The First 10 Questions
Question (Q): In the movie, Space Jam, Daffy Duck sneaks into Michael Jordan’s house to pick up his lucky basketball shorts. What animated character would you trust with your personal belongings and why?
Answer (A): This is a good one. I can’t remember the last time I watched an animated movie. The first character that comes to mind is Andy from Toy Story because he held on to his favorite toys and even wanted to bring Woody and Buzz to college with him, which is serious dedication for a 17/18-year-old boy. He is sentimental and I appreciate that.
Q: What is the chorus of your favourite song?
“Long live the walls we crashed through, all the kingdom lights shined just for me and you.
I was screaming long live all the magic we made and bring on all the pretenders. One day, we will be remembered.”
Q: Complete the sentence: I wish I could ________.
A: Travel without the possibility of catching coronavirus.
Q: The singer, Meat Loaf, said he would do anything for love, but he won’t do that. In general, what are three things you won’t do?
A: I won’t change who I am, I won’t move anywhere unless it makes me happy and makes sense for where I am in life, and … I probably wouldn’t kill someone for love either. Probably.
Q: What is the worst thing about pockets?
A: They’re too small (for girls at least).
Q: Should I be concerned about your most recent Google search?
A: No. I last searched my friend’s zip code so I could look up stuff for her on Facebook Marketplace (AKA the best place ever).
Q: If there was an eighth day of the week, what would it be called, and where would you place it amongst the other seven?
A: I would call the extra day Bonusday. I would place it between Saturday and Sunday.
Q: When you look in the mirror, what do you see behind you?
A: The wall and whatever may be on or against the wall.
Q: You can have dinner with any three people in the world, but you must dine at a fast-food restaurant. Who are you bringing and what does each person (including yourself) order off the menu?
A: Easy. My idols Hilary Duff, Taylor Swift, and Carrie Underwood. We would order chicken nuggets (vegan ones for Carrie) and fries and share a platter as we chatted about our lives.
Q: Think of a word (in English) and create a new, alternate spelling for it. What is the new word you have created?
A: “Fabulous” would be changed to “Phabulous” because it looks more boujee.
Q: On a sheet of paper, draw your happy place. Do not include words or numbers. You have 60 seconds to do this. Share the picture in your blog post.
Q: Text someone, “Knock Knock”. What is their reply?
Q: In your place of residence, pick up a book and turn to Page 50. What is the third sentence on that page and how does it relate to your life?
A: “Miep had told him that he must be at a special place in front of the Post Office at eleven o’clock, where a man would meet him.”
This is from The Diary of a Young Girl AKA Anne Frank’s diary. I have no idea what the sentence is about because I have not yet read the book. It relates to my life because I had to go to the post office the day I took this quiz. I have also been meeting people recently due to my buying and selling of items on Facebook Marketplace.
