Your Questions:

  1. On a scale from “what’s Halloween?” to “I’m a skeleton”, how much does it being October now excite you (give details of your excitement or lack thereof)? 

    I’m pretty much in love with Oct ‘cos it means fall is here and then comes winter - my favorite of the seasons. And who doesn’t love a good Halloween! And the warmth of the blankets on a cold morning with some warm tea or coffee in hand. ^_^

  2. Is there a TV show that crushed your soul, and would you recommend it to other people?

    Cinderella’s Sister.  It’s this Korean drama I watched some 5 years back but it somehow stayed with me till now and I just can’t stop myself from recommending it to people.  

  3. How much credence do you give personality typing/horoscopes/personality by blood type, etc.? Do you think you fit all of yours?

    Very much except the blood type thingy.

  4. Most played song on iTunes/last.fm/whatever you use?

    It always changes from time to time depending on the fixation I have currently so at the moment it will be : Allah Waariyan - Shafqat Amanat Ali.

  5. Song you would *expect* to be your most played? 

    Ashes and Wine - A Fine Frenzy

  6. Current wallpaper on whichever device you use most (laptop, tablet, phone, whatever)? 
    Laptop , Phone 

  7. Last time you stayed up way too late and why? 

    Last night…. I stayed awake till 5 this morning and my head started giving up. It was it was hooked to Witches of East End.

  8. Who’s your ultimate bias (or favorite celebrity) and are your feelings more on the “wow why do I like this person” or “I picked such a perfect person” end of the spectrum? 

    I’m confused between many choices. LOL!

  9. Why DO you like your ultimate bias (or favorite celebrity)? 

    I usually choose them by how they carry themselves, their down-to-earth persona, how much they contribute to society and encouraging the youth and stuffs like that.

  10. Biases aside, is their a boy/girl group member who makes you question your own identity every time you see them (or just a celebrity in general)? (Asking for a friend…) 

    Hmm…. that would be Im YoonA . From other personalities, it’d be Kalki Koechlin.

  11. Getting a little morbid at the end, but, is there a song (or multiple songs) that *have* to play at your funeral?

    I haven’t come across any yet but I still have to chosse the, maybe I will go with ‘Celtic Wiccan Dance by Loreena McKennitt’

My Questions:

  1. Mention a book that stayed with you. And why so?
  2. If you were given a chance to live the life of one of your favourite fictional character, who would you choose and why?
  3. Beach or the mountains?
  4. Coffee or Tea?
  5. Chocolate or Ice-cream?
  6. Book or movie-adaptation?
  7. A handwritten letter or a fancy card?
  8. Choose one of these - Telepathy, Healing, Mind-Control, Teleporting.
  9. If your crush ask you out. What will be your initial reaction?
  10. Zodiac?
  11. Late night party at a club or a sole movie night at home?

I wouldn’t lie that I saw this coming BUT didn’t expect it to be so soon. 


I am a very introverted person who enjoys spending time alone, but l do occasionally like to pop out of my bubble and meet other people. When l connect with people, l connect very deeply. I’m not very surface, l can’t cold talk. I always get straight to the core: l want to know what their biggest defeat is or such like.

No one ever tells you that when your heart breaks, you can feel it. But you can. It feels like something has crumbled inside you and the pieces are falling into your stomach. It hurts more that any punch ever could. You stop breathing, and for a while you can’t remember how. When you finally do, it feels like your throat has closed up, like you’re trying to suck air through a straw.

I am eternally, devastatingly romantic, and I thought people would see it because ‘romantic’ doesn’t mean ‘sugary’. It’s dark and tormented - the furor of passion, the despair of idealism that you can’t attain.

READ FOR MENTAL HEALTH WEEK
It is quite early yet, since Mental Health Week is not until October, but I thought that I would be extra organised. Last year on my book blog I did a post on #ReadForMentalHealthWeek. The aim was not only to highlight the week, but also to raise awareness of mental health, reduce the stigma that surrounds it, and encourage everyone to take care of themselves. I thought it would be a good idea to do it again this year and hopefully make it bigger and better!
There are numerous books out there that deal with mental health/illness and social/emotional issues. (You can find examples here) They can educate us and help us understand particular issues, including ways to handle them. Some us may even relate to them. For whatever reason, reading books that feature these themes and issues are invaluable. Books have a wonderful way of bringing people together so what I’m proposing is that, like last year, we read at least one book that deals with mental health during the week. Not only that but we should be there for each other, take care of our own mental health, and do whatever we can to remain aware of these issues - and not just for Mental Health Week but always.
Here’s what you can do to help:
Reblog this post and spread the word!
Pick a book to read that deals with mental health/illness and social/emotional issues. If you’re not sure which book to read, you can find recommendations HERE
Post about that book throughout Mental Health Week, which is during the second week of October, and tag your posts with #ReadForMentalHealthWeek. Post quotes, pictures, art, reviews, rambles and anything you like across social media
If you feel comfortable doing so, share your own experiences with mental health. So many of us have experienced it ourselves or know someone who has. You can create a post or share anonymously here
Follow this tumblog for more information on Read For Mental Health Week. I will be sharing your posts and book recommendations.
Take care of yourself! Do what makes you happy and don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it
Thank you for reading and supporting this. Look out for more posts about on this blog and in the #ReadForMentalHealthWeek tag!
