Get to Know Me Tag

Instagram // Samsara Parchment

So, it’s been a couple of months now that I’ve had my site up and running, and I post a lot about books and writing (which, to be fair, are very much a part of me), but one thing I don’t post about quite as often is myself. Since I am the one writing the posts, I thought it might be time we all get to know each other a little better, so I’m going to be doing a good old-fashioned “get to know me” tag. Although, if we’re being honest here, this is a bit of a conglomeration of a few lists of “get to know me” questions I’ve seen floating around the Internet.

If you want to know more about the real, living human (except on the days I’m a zombie) behind, read on for more!

What is your middle name?


What is your favorite color?

My favorite colors are purple, black, and blue.

Cats or dogs?

DOGS, for sure. No offense to cats, but I just absolutely love big, furry, slobbery, stinky dogs. We should all be more like dogs because they’re amazing and wonderful and basically embody everything good in the world.

Are you in/did you go to college?

Yes, I graduated from college with a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing.

What was your favorite/worst subject in high school?

My favorite subject was English and an elective that I took a couple of times called Contemporary Novels. My worst subject was (and probably still is to this day) math! I am just…so bad at math.

What is your favorite drink?

Iced tea (not sweet tea, which really gets me some puzzled looks now that I live in the South…), iced coffee, hot coffee, & water. (Water is not boring! It’s delicious and it keeps us alive!)

What is your favorite animal?

My favorite animals are wolves, dogs, and sting rays!


Hogwarts house?

Ravenclaw through and through! GO EAGLES!

Tea or coffee?

I guess if you’re going to force me to choose, coffee.

What sports do you/have you played?


Who are some of your favorite bloggers/YouTubers?

Some of my favorite bloggers are Paper Fury and the talented team over at Book Riot. I’m also recently starting to get really into Virtually Read. A couple of my favorite YouTubers are Sarah Hawkinson and Cayleigh Elise.

What is your favorite movie?

I don’t have as many favorite movies as I have favorite books, but I still have quite a few, so it’s hard to choose. My favorite series are the Friday the 13th movies, the Halloween series, the Predator movies, and the Alien movies. For animated movies I love The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and The Nightmare Before Christmas. My favorite comedies are Step Brothers (classic), This Is the End, and Tommy Boy.

What’s your current hair color?

As black as my soul.

What is your eye color?

Dark brown

What is your favorite season?

Definitely fall. Boots, scarves, hot drinks, Halloween, and pumpkin everything??? Sign. Me. Up.

Do you use sarcasm a lot?

Almost exclusively.

Do you have any siblings?

Yes, I have one brother who is six years older than me.

Do you have any pets?

Yes! I have this stinker who is adorable, goofy, and for some reason really excited almost all the time.

How would you describe your fashion sense?

I’d call it a mix of life-is-short-and-I-just-want-to-be-comfortable meets don’t-mind-me-just-jetting-off-to-a-coven-meeting.

With a touch of boho.

What are some of your favorite TV shows?

The 100, Ghost Adventures, Family Guy, Adventure Time, How I Met Your Mother, & The Office

Scary movies or happy endings?

Scary movies!!! 100% without a doubt, scary movies all the way. Easiest way to be my friend? Watch scary movies with me.

Favorite smells?

Well, let’s get the obvious one out of the way first—BOOKS. I’m guilty of being a major book sniffer.

And aside from the smell of books, my other favorite smells include coffee, the soap my husband uses, Mahogany Teakwood everything from Bath & Body Works, clean sheets, & rain. (Amortentia would probably smell like books, rain, & coffee for me.)

Tell us one of your bad habits!

Eep. Probably either talking down to myself or worrying things into the ground. Seriously, I can worry about anything, and the domino-effect chain of my worrying is just about insane. It’s a very, very bad habit. 0/10. Do not recommend.

That’s it for today! Tell me something about yourself in the comments below, whether it’s an answer to one of the above questions or just something random! You know I’d love to talk. <3
