I Provide An Excuse To Talk Excessively About Myself aka The 100 Truths Blogger Tag!

I’m back and here to talk about my favourite topic: myself. I’m kidding.

About that my favourite topic is myself, but today I’ll be answering 100 questions about myself, which I actually really love doing, so let me know if you want to see more of these kinds of content. Probably not but I’ll do that anyway.

I saw this tag on May @ Forever and Everly and I thought it was fun, so here we are. I also want to apologize in advance for the length of this post, it’s a long one.

1. What’s your name?

Taasia. It is my real name. I also have a Chinese name, which I will not share due to privacy reasons.

2. Any nicknames or aliases?

My parents used to call me Tash (for some reason??) and some of my best friends call me Tahseah, as a play on my name and to poke fun at all everyone who constantly butchered it.

3. Your gender?

Female.

4. Your star sign?

Libra! It’s pretty accurate to my personality, especially since I’m the worst decision maker ever.

5. How old are you?

I’m 16 and crying in high school right now hbu.

6. Your relationship status?

I feel like this question is a personal attack and I’m not here for it.

7. Any children?

Sweetie, I’m still 16, so NO.

8. Any pets?

No, and I’m kind of glad, to be honest. It’s a lot of work that I can’t commit to.

9. Any tattoos or piercings?

No – I haven’t even pierced my ears yet, which is very rare but it also makes me very nervous?

10. What do you like about yourself?

Errrrrr ….. I really don’t know?

But if I had to, I’d say I like being smart, driven and sassy? And I’ve been told multiple times that I’m a badass? I guess I’ll take it.

11. What do you dislike about yourself?

A lot of things, actually. I could go on for days about it – this is not at all helpful for someone who has a lot of internalized self-hate, like yours truly. But two examples I have would be how I have a really short temper, and also how I excessively apologize for everything.

12. Righty or lefty?

I’m mostly a lefty – I write with my left hand, but in sports, I can use both hands. So in that sense, it depends. But overall, I classify myself as a leftie.

13. The last thing you drank?

Coconut water.

14. The last thing you ate?

Mixed rice from the food court next door.

15. Your last phone call?

I literally had to check my phone log for this question, but I last called my mum, which I missed.

16. Your last text message?

Technically, my last text message that I texted was to a group chat to meet up for food before a movie, and that group chat was also the last message I received.

17. Your last email?

I have three email accounts, so this is .. annoying. My last email message sent was me sending IGCSE past papers to my mum for her to help me print out, but the last emails I’ve received are email subs.

18. The last song you listened to?

Keeping a Secret by Bleachers (from the Love, Simon soundtrack). It’s so good I love it so so much.

19. The last book you read?

I actually just finished the Raven Boys (finally!) today!

20. The last time you cried?

Probably some point last weekend?

21. The last blog you read?

The wonderful May @ Forever and Everly!

22. The last person you spoke to?

My mum.

23. The last place you visited?

Raffles Institution where I got to meet the New Zealand Prime Minister which is crazy and I was legitimately quaking?

I really overshare, don’t I?

24. Your last holiday abroad?

I went to London and Jersey in the summer, and I talk a little about it here.

What is up with these questions about relationships?

28. Have you ever lost someone special to you?

Not that I can think of right now.

29. Have you ever been so drunk you threw up?

Even if I did, that’d be something that wouldn’t be public knowledge.

30. Have you ever fallen out of love with someone?

Yeah, and that’s all I’m gonna say. I’ve also fallen out of love with things too (lots of them).

I’ve met multiple people that fit this answer.

32. Have you ever been in a situation where you found out who your real friends are?

35. Have you ever broken someone’s heart?

Not that I know of?

36. Have you ever kissed a stranger?

No.

37. Have you ever had your own heart broken?

Does the slow burn of Peraltiago and books count because they have done that so. many. times.

38. Have you ever had sex on the first date?

No.

39. Have you ever been arrested?

I am a good child. Even if I did, I wouldn’t tell that kind of information here.

40. Have you ever been attracted to someone that isn’t the gender you usually find attractive?

I’m able to objectively see people as attractive, but that doesn’t mean I’m attracted to them, you know?

41. Have you ever done something you regret?

My whole life.

But honestly: so many things.

42. Have you ever had a threesome?

NO.

43. Have you ever embarrassed yourself in public?

Everyone has, so…

45. Do you believe in God?

No, not really. I’ve got nothing against you if you do. Just don’t force it upon others who aren’t.

46. Do you believe in yourself?

It depends on what you’re talking about, I guess.

47. Do you believe in Santa Claus?

I stopped believing in Santa a long time ago.

48. Do you believe in ghosts?

No, unlike Ryan Bergara.

49. Do you believe in aliens?

No one could pay me money to believe in aliens.

50. Do you believe in miracles?

I don’t believe in it, but they can happen.

51. Do you believe in the power of positive thinking?

Sure, but it can be just so exhausting sometimes.

52. Do you believe in love at first sight?

Nope. It’s too idealistic a concept for me to really believe in, honestly, but if you do, good for you.

53. Can money make you happy?

To a certain extent.

54. Would you describe yourself as a feminist?

Yes! My friends are probably sick of my feminist rages and I’m doing work for a gender equality organization, so, definitely.

55. Are you pro-life or pro-choice?

I honestly don’t know? Both sides have very compelling arguments.

56. Do you have strong political beliefs?

It depends on which area of politics, I suppose? There are definitely certain areas of politics that I’m a lot more invested in.

57. Do you have strong religious beliefs?

No, not at all.

58. What do you think the most important thing you can give a child is?

I’m going to cheat and say three things: unconditional love and support, as well as an appropriate balance of presence and space, I guess?

76. Love or money?

Both – don’t make me choose!

78. Hook up or relationship?

Relationship all the way.

79. Dogs or cats?

Dogs. I absolutely hate cats to the point where I have only liked 1 cat ever. They just give me a really bad feeling.

80. Coffee or tea?

Neither, because I don’t take any of them.

81. Beer or wine?

Again, I don’t drink.

82. Sweet or savory?

It depends on my mood and what I’m feeling, but I do love both?

84. Vampires or werewolves?

Neither.

Hi, I’m Taasia, and welcome to my book blog.

Comedy. No doubt. I’m such a chicken and comedy is my go to anyway.

Knowing whatever I wanted/needed to know and basically having access to all the knowledge.

Being able to get along with everyone would be great.

96. Would you want immortality?

Yes and no?

97. If you could interview anyone alive or dead who would it be?

I definitely have icons so one of those? But I’m the worst at answering on the spot questions, so.

To some degree, sure, but I have been having lots of ups-and-downs as of late.

  1. Yay! I really enjoy reading these kind of posts 🙂 I don’t think I said it before, but I find your name really, really, really pretty ❤ AND YAY for being Libra – I'm also the worst decision maker ever hahaha I can relate.

    1. Aw thank you so much, Marie! I’ve had a very love-hate relationship with my name so it’s really nice of you to say that ❤ Yay for fellow Libras, we’re honestly the most indecisive people ever 😂 I did like the Raven Boys, but not as much as everyone else did. I will probably continue to the Dream Thieves, especially since everyone and their mother has loved it so so much. I love how we have so much in common – it makes me so happy 🙂 I hope you enjoy the tag – it’s super fun to do! Happy reading, Marie!
