Vogue’s 73 Questions

Heya!

I apologize for not posting the past two weeks. I was really tired after acting classes and volleyball. And I went camping in Tofino on the weekend. I will write about my camping experience in Tofino in another post. Anyway, I am doing Vogue’s 73 questions in today’s post, inspired by one of my favourite bloggers, Poorwa, who also did this a while ago. I chose the ones I liked the most from the Vogue website.

Superpowers I’d Want, If they Existed

Have you ever thought about what kind of superpower you want? Well, I know I have not, but now that I think about it, if I could have three superpowers, I’d want shape-shifting, time travel, and mind-reading. 

First, shape-shifting. I would be able to be anything, including a wrapper.  I’d also easily be able to blend into the environment around me. For example, if I was in a hide and seek game and couldn’t find anywhere to hide, then I could shift into something that blends into the environment, or if a stranger was chasing me, I could turn a corner and shape-shift into something around there.

The second superpower I’d want to have is time travel. The future has been one of the greatest mysteries that no one has ever been able to solve. If I could see the future, I could avoid putting too much effort into something that would probably never happen and focus on the things that is going to happen. I can help to prepare the world and get ready for it. Another reason why I want to be able to time travel is, it might sound kind of strange, but I want to look at my past and redo the things I wanted to do.

The very last and best superpower I’d want is the ability to mind-read. I want to read my friends’ minds because some of them have the most complicated minds, which drives me crazy. First off, reading someone’s mind is like reading something they wrote about you. For example, say someone had something against you or spread rumors about you, if you go into their minds, you’d know exactly what they have against you and you’d maybe be able to fix things. Secondly, there is always someone who you know that’s going through something they don’t want to tell anyone. It could be a friend, a relative, anyone really. If I could read their mind, I would be able to understand them better and may be able to help them through their struggles. And the last reason I’d want to mind read is, I just think that invading someone’s thoughts would be fun in a good way (not trying to be rude, it’s my opinion), but their privacy matters too. 

Superpowers aren’t real, but this post was an if they were. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

Summer Reading

Reading is one of my favorite activities, whether I’m on vacation, camping, at the beach or curled up in my couch at home.

So, here are some books on my summer reading list:

  8. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  9. The Luck Uglies by Paul Durham
  10. Britfield and the Lost Crown by C. R. Stewart
  11. Broken Strings by Eric Walters
  12. The Secret Life of Ms. Finkleman by Ben H. Winters
