JadeSky’s questions (THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH, JADESKY FOR TAGGING US!!!!!!!!!!!! You’re SUPER EPIC!!!!!):

What was your goal/purpose when you first started blogging? Do you feel that goal or purpose has changed in any way?

To give encouragement and advice to other teen writers. Nope!

I wanted to offer encouragement to teen writers and to let them know that they CAN write great and publish-worthy stories!! Nope not really!!!

I wanted to encourage and connect with other teen writers, and motivate and inspire them to continue in their writing journey. No – if any thing, I feel more passionate than before to encourage others in their writing.

What’s your favorite part about blogging?

Typing the posts and reading the people’s comments. Also, reading posts from other blogs.

Talking with you gals in the comments below!!!

My favorite part is seeing everyone’s excitement over my post and talking with everyone in the comments!!! I LOVE the comments!!!!!<3 

What’s your go-to comfort snack? Why?

Fruit!! They’re sweet and juicy,  just the way I like it!

Chocolate. Need I explain? It’s AMAZING!

I go crazy over nachos!!!

If you could go see any movie in a movie theater, what would you want to see and why?

Narnia, The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, and Little Women (2019). I LOVE those movies and I’ve only seen the third Narnia movie in theaters before and would like to experience the others on a big screen.

Man, JadeSky’s been slipping in those two questions in one trick. That one always gets pulled on me. XD I’d like my chance to see the Hobbit movies in the theater. 😍

(Can I answer this question with my own novel? Eh, I’m gonna do it anyways.πŸ˜‰) I wish I could see my own novel in the movie theater because I bet seeing my story unfold will be incredible!

Do you consider yourself an introvert, an extrovert, or a mixture of both?

A mixture of both.

I’m a mixture of both but have a stronger extroverted side!!!!!

I’m an introvert.

Who’s your favorite music artist?

TobyMac, Jeremy Camp, Danny Gokey, Britt Nicole, Francesca Battistelli, Mandisa, The Afters, & Casting Crowns! I really can’t pick just one!

Aaah, we could be here all day. XD TobyMac, Danny Gokey, Hawk Nelson, Tenth Avenue North…I shall stop there for y’all’s sake. πŸ˜‰

A favorite??? I have a hard time with favorites, but I’ll say some I really like: For King and Country, TobyMac, and Mandisa.

What’s a funny memory from when you were a little kid?

This is actually a vague memory, but when I was really little I used to recite Disney’s The Little Mermaid word for word, song for song by heart while my family and I were in the car going somewhere.

When I was younger I was obsessed with the Magic Tree House books. Me, Kat, and Alana would pretend to have our own magic tree house . . . it might’ve been under the dining room table. πŸ˜‰ 

Uhhhh . . . I have poor memory guys. XD Maybe the time when Alana, Is, and I acted out (songs included) the ENTIRE MOVIE of Frozen in Grandma’s backyard.

Are you a morning or night person? 

A night person.

Both! Imagine how hard it is to get any sleep. XD

Both. I literally consider myself a night owl and an early bird!

If you could immediately learn to speak any new language, which one would you choose? Why?

Spanish. I have always like the Spanish culture.

ITALIAN!!!! Dunno why. I’ve always had some strange fascination for Italy. I think it’s the pasta.

Oooh, I LOVE this question!!!! I would like to speak French fluently. And, I wish I could speak Elvish!πŸ˜‰ 

If you could donate a million dollars to any charity or nonprofit organization, which one would you pick?

One that has something to do for animals or for children.

A nonprofit Christian organization.

Samaritan’s Purse.

What’s the best thing you’ve learned from 2020?

That you should always spend as much time as you can with the people (and even pets) whom you love.

That you are never alone because God is ALWAYS there. 

God is still working His perfect plan into our lives even when things aren’t going the way we want them to.

Both!! I LOVE dogs and cats! Although, if I have to pick one, I’m going with cats πŸˆπŸ•πŸ˜»

Dog person. It didn’t use to always be that way…

Both! I’m especially a dog person if the dog is a husky!!!!!!πŸ’—

5. What does a typical morning look like for you?

Get up and try to adjust the transition from sleep to awake.

Get up, read my Bible, check to see if I have any emails waiting response, and start school!

Wake up, roll outta bed (literally), brush hair, skip breakfast, start school. Oh, and checking the clock is in there somewhere. XD

6. What was the last movie you saw that you absolutely hated?

Star Girl. It’s on Disney Plus.

*thinking really hard* I have no idea. I haven’t been watching a whole lot of movies lately.

Uhhhh . . . mind going blank. XD

7. We all have those moments when our favorite character does something stupid, even though we’re yelling at them, β€œDON’T DO THE THING!” If you could have the power to change one moment in one movie/book, and make the character do something different, what moment would you change?

Every ridiculous mistakes Harry makes in the Harry Potter books (he is NOT your smartest protagonist)πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

That moment in the 3rd Hobbit movie when a few things happen that lead to the deaths of my THREE FAVORITE CHARACTERS!!!!!! That’s all I’m saying for spoilers!! πŸ˜‰

I will ABSOLUTELY 100% change the ending to Frozen II!!!!!!! Elsa will stay in Arendale and her and Anna will be queens and rule Arendale TOGETHER!!!!!!!!! (I’m sorry to those of you who liked how Frozen II ended.)

A fast-paced plot. I tend to lose interest in stories when nothing’s happening!

Excellent – I’m picking both!!!! 

10. What three fictional characters do you relate to in some way?

Beth and Meg March (Little Women by Louisa May Alcott), Lucy Pevensie (The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis), and Dr. Dolittle (The Story of Dr. Dolittle by Hugh Lofting). I relate to many more, though.

Sage (The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen) for his clever side, Crow (Beyond the Bright Sea by Lauren Wolk) because of her journey, and Thomas (Fawkes by Nadine Brandes) for many reasons.

JUSTIN RUSSO (Wizards of Waverly Place) because he’s nerdy and he tries to follow the rules. Tobias (The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen) because of his loyalty. And Stargirl (Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli) because she’s always thinking of others first. P.S. I am LITERALLY so much like Genie from Issabelle’s novel, Into the Lamp!!!!!!!!!!

11. Tacos or burritos?

BURRITOS!!!!!

Both!! 

Tacos all the way!

***

Questions from Mary at Wild Writing Dreams! (THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH, Mary, for the tag!!!!!!! You’re INCREDIBLE!!!!!!)

What is something funny/weird you and your family do regularly? 

Just say random things that don’t even make sense of what’s going on at the moment.

Eh, my fam’s just weird. Somehow the most normal thing like driving a car we end up doing really crazy. 

Sometimes we act out scenes from movies. It turns out to be a joking moment!!!

What is one thing about you most of your readers probably don’t know?

That I have an excellent memory. (I can recite some movies and books by heart, word for word).

I don’t have a social media account. Nope. None whatsoever!

We’reSISTERS*evillaughingcontinuesallnight* What? Is it something I said?

What type of music do you listen to the most? (Feel free to share an awesome song from that genre!)

Christian contemporary music. Here’s a song, “More Than I Could Be” by Danny Gokey.

Christian contemporary music! Umm…this is the song I’m listening to as I write this.

Christian contemporary music!!! I LOVE this song by For King and country!!!!!!!

What’s the weirdest smell you have ever smelled?

A spice. (I can’t remember what it’s called, but I remember it smelled strange, which was normal).

Feet? Yep, I’ve smelled it before. *shudders* Li’l me was not really smart.

Pet food maybe?

If you could be an animal, what animal would you be and why?

Any kind of mammals, birds, and reptiles, except snakes. I LOVE animalsπŸ˜πŸ¦πŸ»πŸ¬πŸ΄πŸΊπŸ’πŸ•ŠοΈπŸ§

I’d be a dragon. I feel like this is self-explanatory. XD

A narwhal!!!!! That way I could live in the ocean and still be one of my favorite animals!

If you could be a Disney prince (if you’re a guy) or princess (if you’re a girl), who would you be and why?

I would be Ariel. She has always been my favorite. Plus, I would get to be a mermaidπŸ§œπŸ»β€β™€οΈ

I’d be Jasmine! ‘Cause I’m kind of obsessed with Aladdin right now. XD

Oooh, I LOVE this question!!! I would be Rapunzel so Eugene can be my boyfriend!

What is the coolest/weirdest name you’ve seen/heard someone in real life have?

I’ve heard of Kensi.

Easy, the coolest/weirdest name I’ve ever seen is Mary. πŸ˜† though can I really say Issabelle, ’cause who else spells it like that?

Penelope is the coolest name I’ve heard recently.

If someone asked to be your apprentice and learn all that you know, what would you teach them?

I’m a died-hard Little House fan, so I would probably tell them everything about the Ingalls family.

The ways of the force. Sorry, guys, for these ridiculous answers but as I’m typing my answers to Mary’s questions it’s like seven o’clock and my brain is really dead right now. XD

I would probably teach them jazz dance moves. Jazz is my favorite type of dance.

In your opinion, what is the most annoying color?

Orange. I have no idea why.

Gray. It’s just soooo dull.

Pink-wanna-be’s. I do not like those false pink colors.

What is the funniest/craziest thing you’ve ever done?

Falling into Issabelle’s traps.

Starting a blog. Writing a book. Trying to read Lord of the Rings (which is like over a thousand pages y’all). Eh, you guys pick one. XD

Listening to Issabelle’s crazy ideas! XD XD XD (I’m kidding. I love Issabelle’s ideas.<3)

Can you ever be backwards on stairs, even when you’re walking down them backwards?

I think I like writing over reading. But that was REALLY hard to pick y’all.

THE TAGS!!!!

Anyone who read this entire post! Yep, you’re tagged now! Yay you!

THE QUESTIONS!!!!!!

Mary’s set of 11 questions. This is me just being lazy. Plus we’re good friends so I know I can steal from her and get away with it. *evil laughter*

Well, that’s all we’ve got for ya!!!!! And I’m too tire to come up with questions so let’s just chat below!!!!!

Issabelle Perry is a devout follower of Jesus Christ and an extroverted, slightly crazy, teenage published author of YA fantasy. On the rare occasion when she's not plotting and pursuing her next story idea, you can find her reading, blogging, graphic designing, searching the web for odd facts about the middle ages, hunting for Narnia in wardrobes, or envisioning herself wielding a magnificent sword (but due to her clumsiness, let’s hope that never happens). This self-proclaimed exclamation mark enthusiast and obsessed fan of LOTR and The False Prince (by Jennifer A. Nielsen), is a co-founder of the popular Teen Writers' Nook where she and her sisters are dedicated to motivating and supporting young authors. What she's probably doing right now is fangirling about her favorite books to random people, trying to figure out how to fit the five new books she bought on her overflowing bookshelf, or scanning the pantries for chocolate.

    This is awesome, you guys!!!! I love all your different answers!!! πŸ˜€ This was fun to read!!! I also think I’m kind of an ambivert, because I don’t like being around a ton of people, however when I’m around someone I’m comfortable with I can talk forever. XD Though I probably am more introverted generally. πŸ˜‰ Haha, I love how you all have completely different answers to some of the questions, then exactly the same to others! XD It’s awesome! I also find Contemporary Christian music inspiring!! The songs are usually so relevant to what’s going on in either the world or my life. πŸ™‚

    • Issabelle

      THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH, GIRL!!!!!!! Haha, SAME!!! Aww, I’m sooo happy to hear!! YES GIRL I ABSOLUTELY 100% UNDERSTAND!!!! I’m the saaaaaaaaame way! If I know someone I can just talk on and on and on and on (okay, now I’m starting to ramble) but if I don’t really know someone that’s when my introverted side starts showing more. Hahaha, I was thinking that as I put in some of my answers like aaaahhh, Kat and Alana have already said this. XD But sometimes it wasn’t that way obviously. (Duh, Is. :D) THANKS!!!! YESSSS CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN MUSIC IS DA BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s like for the most part all that I listen to. (Though, I’ve gotten really hooked into some Hobbit songs. πŸ™‚ ) IKR!! That’s what I LOVE the most about it is how it speaks to me! (Plus, those songs usually have lyrics that make sense if y’know what I mean. XD)

    • Katherine

      Thank you so much, Allie!!!!!πŸ˜ƒ Haha, yeah, I thought it was really funny how much we think alike. And yet, we do have some differences.πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚
      So, true! Christian music speaks to us in our lives and encourages us too!πŸ™‚β€οΈ

  • Victoria

    – Introvert/extrovert
    – TobyMac, Danny Gokey, for King & Country, etc.

    – Fall!!!! I LOVE that season!

I have no idea why we kept that a secret. I figured everyone else was gonna end up guessing it eventually. LOL!!! *jumps in an spaceship and tries to find Victoria’s mind on Jupiter* (I think that sentence alone is enough to show everyone I’m going through one of my seriously crazy moments. XD)

      AAAAAHHHHH!!!!! I’m sooooooo happy to hear!!!!!! *jumps up and down* YAAAY!!! YES It’s sooo cool to hear we have some things in common. Though, I mean, I could already tell that. There’s a good reason why you’re sooo awesome. You learned it all from me. XD (See, I told ya I’m in one of my really crazy moments. XD)
      YES TO YOUR ENTIRE LIST AND I WAS ACTUALLY LITERALLY THINKING OF YOU WHEN I PUT THE HOBBIT HOLE THING DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Haha, I LOVED Magic Tree House when I was a kid. It was like the only thing you could get me to read. XD (LOL!! I don’t really remember much about Jack and Annie…it’s been waaaaay too long!) Huskies are soooo cute!!

THANK YOU for reading and commenting!!! Your comments ALWAYS make my day!!!! Love you!! *hugs* (LOL!! I will probably not try to do five tags in one post again. XD) YESSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!! <33

    • Katherine

      🀣 Yep, we’re actually sisters!!!!!!! Though I have to admit, I had a lot of fun keeping a secret for awhile!!!!!! And then when I saw that one question, I was like “this is it, guys, I’m gonna say our secret and see if anyone notices”. XD (If this were a book, then the secret is the plot twist and the reader is second guessing the accuracy of the information. XD XD XD)
      Anyways, THANK YOU SO MUCH, VICTORIA!!!!!!!!! *high-fives ya* Huskies are amazing!!!!!!!!!
      Yay!!!!!! I’m so glad you like the idea!!!!!!! We’re still brainstorming how it’s going to work though, but I hope everyone will enjoy it!!! Aw, you’re welcome, girl!!!!!!! Thank you so much for reading it!!!!!!!<333333 Truly made my day!<3<3<3

It is super long, but totally worth it! XD How are you enjoying The Princess Companion, Katherine? That’s really neat that you’re an ENFP, Issabelle! I have a friend with the same personality type.

        • Issabelle

    • Katherine

      Thank you, Kristianne!!!!!!<333 Hehe, I was wondering who all would notice that tiny detail planted in this loooonnngggg post!πŸ˜„ Yep, we're really sisters! Which is probably why some of our answers are the same 'cause we tend to think alike. Literally. XD THANK YOU!!!!!!!!πŸ˜€
      Thank you for asking!!!!πŸ˜€ I'm really loving it so far!!!!! I love that it is a clean read. And my favorite character is probably the prince. All in all, I've gotten into the story and it's really kept my interest!!!!
      You're so welcome! Thank you for reading and commenting!!!!!<333

      • Kristianne

        That is really great that you’re so close that you’d be willing to do a blog together! Sisters can be some of the best friends. My sister Alissa is one of my closest friends!
        I’m glad you’re enjoying it! I haven’t read that series yet, but I’m hoping to soon!

        • Katherine

          Thank you!!! We have always been really close and we do everything together. We’ve thought about starting a blog before. But last year when Issabelle said she wanted to start a blog for writers, I was like “count me in”! And we all just wanted to do it together. It wouldn’t be the same if I had a seperate blog.
          Absolutely, Sisters is the very definition of best friends!!<3 Aww, I think it is amazing that your sister is one of your closest friends!!!!!!
          Oooh, yes, you should read it!!!!! πŸ™‚ You'd love it!!!!!!!!

  • Ally M.J.

    HALLOO I feel like I haven’t talked you y’all in FOREVER so HI you beautiful ladies!!
    Here are my answers to Mary’s questions:
    -What is something funny/weird you and your family do regularly?
    Wake up at like 5:45 in Friday’s to watch WandaVision (we did the same thing with The Mandalorian too)
    -What is one thing about you most of your readers probably don’t know?
    …I… *thinking hard* I can draw reasonably-realistic portraits of people? I would need an actual picture and then I can copy the basic outline and add the value shading. (No tracing)
    -What type of music do you listen to the most? (Feel free to share an awesome song from that genre!)
    Christian contemporary and Kpop, as long as it’s appropriate. My favorite bands/groups are BTS, For King and Country, Britt Nicole, Toby Mac, Danny Gokey, Hollyn, TXT… the list goes on and on and on…
    -What’s the weirdest smell you have ever smelled?
    Kimchi. Kimchi smells so weird and tastes so weird. I don’t really like it, but I like a ton of other Korean dishes that smell AMAZING
    -If you could be an animal, what animal would you be and why?
    I would want to be a wolf, because of their incredible stamina.
    -If you could be a Disney prince (if you’re a guy) or princess (if you’re a girl), who would you be and why?
    …hmmmm…. maybe Merida? OH NO PRINCESS LEIA
    -What is the coolest/weirdest name you’ve seen/heard someone in real life have?
    I can name way too many of these off the top of my head, but let’s just keep it at Xinyi and Chihye
    -If someone asked to be your apprentice and learn all that you know, what would you teach them?
    Uh. How to make food? How to apply eyeliner? I don’t have very many life-changing skills. How to pretend to know Korean and make random noises with your mouth while listening to Kpop?
    -In your opinion, what is the most annoying color?
    Moldy Yellow. Like imagine gray-green-yellow cheese. *barf*
    -What is the funniest/craziest thing you’ve ever done?
    I walked ten miles. In my garage. By literally doing nothing but walking in an infinite circle. Try not to be jealous of my life XD
    -Can you ever be backwards on stairs, even when you’re walking down them backwards?
    No. Unless you’re my brother. Then feel free and also tell me so I can film it and post it on YouTube.
    I loved your answers, ladies!

    • Issabelle

      ALLLLLLLLYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What’s up, gal!!! Aaah, IKR!!! It’s been soooooo long!! I’ve missed your AWESOME comments, they always make my day much brighter!!!!! Ooooh, YEA!!! *settles in comfy chair and grabs a bucket of popcorn*

      Aaaaaah, really, that’s soooooo cool!!!!!! (Also, keep a look-out for the next time I share fanart of Into the Lamp. I might’ve figured out how to put your drawing of Genie in a post and am now totally gonna share it with everyone. If you’re okay with that, that is!!!! πŸ™‚ )
      YES TO TOBYMAC, BRITT NICOLE, FOR KING AND COUNTRY, DANNY GOKEY AND AAAAHHHH now I think I’m gonna go listen to some music. XD
      Hahaha, I’ve never tasted nor smelled kimchi but I’m gonna take your word for it. πŸ˜‰
      Ooooooh, yea!! Why didn’t I think about being a wolf? Wolves are soooooo cool!!!!!!!!!
      PRINCESS LEIA IS SOOOOOOOOO AWESOME!!!!!! And Merida too!!!! <33
      WHOA!!!! I loooooove those names!!!!! <33 😍 You always have such incredible names!
      LOL!! Me neither!!! XD Anyway, I'd totally be your apprentice to learn how to pretend to know Korean and make random noises with your mouth while listening to Kpop. 🀣🀣🀣🀣
      Oooof, yeah moldy yellow is NOT a cool color. XD
      LOL!!!!! Hey, at least you got a good workout!!!!! XD *me being totally jealous of Ally's life*
      Aaaahhh, girl, you're too AWESOME!!!!! LOOOVED your answer to the last question. XD
      Aww, why THANK YOU, girl!!!!!!!!! <33

    • Katherine

      Heeelllloooooo, Ally!!!!!!!!πŸ˜ƒ I know, right?! It’s been awhile. I’ve missed your awesomeness!!!!!!! Thank you so much for commenting!!!!
      I loved reading your answers to the questions!!!! I bet your drawings are fantabulous!!!!! Ahhh, I forgot about Hollyn – she’s awesome too!!! Yeeesss to Princess Leia!!!!!!πŸ˜€
      Awesome way to get exercise! But . . . um . . . I might be a little jealous of your life. XD
      Thank you so much, Ally!!!!!!!!! I LOVED your answers!!!!!!

    • Alana

      WOW!!! I LOVE your answers, Ally. Being Merida and Leia would be so cool! And I would love to turn into a wolf. That would be AMAZING!!! Or at least, turn into another kind of animal. 🐺

  • Mary

    I will admit, I read a good chunk of this post until I got way too excited to see your guys’s answers to my questions and just like zoomed to the bottom πŸ˜‚
    SO COOL to learn more about you guys!! I had literally zero idea that all of you were sisters until today πŸ˜‚ I’m honored, Issabelle, that you think my name is weird/cool 😝 Also I LOVE, like, all the music artists you guys talked about!!! Also, Katherine, for the last question…ehhh I have no idea if it’s a trick question myself, it was just some random thoughts going through my head after I walked down some stairs backwards so I decided to throw it into the tag. But I love how Alana and Issabelle were very concerned for everyone’s safety while you were questioning the whole thing πŸ˜‚ And ahaha yes, you are very much allowed to steal my questions, Issabelle πŸ˜† You definitely need to because, wow, this post was probably a heap of work to write!!!!

    • Issabelle

      LOL!!!! That’s okay, Mary!!!! I wouldn’t have read this lengthy post for nothing. Unless, of course, you were the one doing it ’cause then I’d be laughing my head off and it’d just make it all fun!!!!!!! That’s cool, ’cause most of the AWESOME answers were down there too, like the super big secret. *shrugs* Just saying. XD
      YESSSS!!!!!!!! LOL!!! I guess we’re really good at keeping secrets. XD YES!!!!!! 🀣🀣🀣 Aaaaahh YES I LOOOOOVE THOSE MUSIC ARTISTS TOO!!!!!!!!!!! Hahaha, I didn’t think about that but now that you mention it that is really funny. Alana and me are like nooo that’s a bad idea and Kat’s like what’s up with this question. XD WHOOOO!!!!!! *pumps fist in the air* See, I told everyone I could take questions from you and get by with it. πŸ˜† Aaaahh, I know right!!!! But it was still fun to write. XD

      • Mary

        Ahaha, thanks!! Yeah, I just went back and read the rest of everything I missed, though πŸ˜‚ YEAH, you’re secret was, like, mind-blowing and then I was like, “Dude…why didn’t I think of it before?” πŸ˜‚
        YES YOU ARE. YESSSS I KNOW RIGHT!! LOL so funny to see all your guys’s similar or completely different answers πŸ˜‚ Ahaha yes, you have my full permission to legally steal them *smiles pleasantly because THAT sentence made sense* I know right!! Tags usually take a while to write up, but they’re also really fun at the same time πŸ˜†

        • Issabelle

          You’re welcome!!!! Hahaha, man, all of y’all who read that entire post have some serious dedication. XD Hahaha!!!! Now I wonder if I said something really unrealistic if we’d all just believe it, ’cause you just never know with me. πŸ˜‚
          YESSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!!! I KNOW RIGHT!!!!!! Hahaha, wooohooo!! I’ve gotten permission to legally steal the questions!!!!!! *pumps fist in the air* *totally misses how the sentence shouldn’t make sense* XD Aaahh, YES!!! Tags sometimes take me a while to write, but the good thing is I don’t have to come up with what the post should be about. XD But YES!! They’re still TONS of fun!!!

    • Katherine

      Hi, Le Master of Finding Things And Looking Great in My Fedora While Doing!!!🀣 (No, I didn’t remember that whole title off top my head. I had to go back to your post to see what it was. XD) I don’t blame ya – I would’ve done the same thing.πŸ˜‚
      Haha, I guess that means that it was a well kept secret!!!πŸ˜‚ I have to admit, there was quite a few times I thought you guys would figure it out. It was fun keeping it a secret though!πŸ˜‚ Though the way I saw it was that we were writers and writers keep big, juicy secrets from their readers. So that’s what we did . . . until it was time to reveal the secret. XD
      LOL, man, I’m still convinced that it’s a trick question!🀣🀣🀣

      • Mary

        *gasps* my-my title! (in twenty years I’m still going to get people calling me this now, I just realized πŸ˜†) (LOL yes, I would never have remembered that whole thing!!)
        OOO, so true!! I guess this is 100% proof you’d all amazing at writing plot twists πŸ˜‚
        LOL I’m with you on that πŸ˜‚ I’m pretty sure it’s a trick question though (which it probably is because I’M the one who made it up and I’m mildly confused myself πŸ˜†)

        • Katherine

          Haha, yep, we will be calling you that forever!!!πŸ˜† (To be honest you came up with it. So, it seems only fitting that you would remember it.πŸ˜‚)
          Why thank you!! *bows dramatically* I guess writing plot twist shouldn’t be too hard after all, now that I know I can do it well.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
          Haha, you’re trying to trick us all and make us think it’s not a trick. (Wait does that sentence even make sense?πŸ€”) Eh, oh well. XD I think you totally confirmed it was a trick question.πŸ˜‚

    • Alana

      Hi, Mary. I’m glad you like it. Yeah, when I saw the last question of what you had I ask, the first thing I thought was how someone could easily get hurt if they did that. (I have been to hospital when I had to get stitches and a cast because I was doing something unsafe). πŸ€•

    • Issabelle

      THANK YOU, SHANESSA!!!!!!!!! YESSS!!!! It’s sooooo good to have you back!!! TWN’s missed you!!! *throws a welcome back party for Shanessa* *passes around cake and cookies* *throws out party streamers* *hugs* Aaaahh, I feel ya there, sister. School wants to take alllllllll of my freetime. πŸ˜† I hope things are going well with you, though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ve been super busy but just kind of hanging in there, y’know. I’m soooo close to finishing my latest WIP but this first draft is a mess and needs soooo much work. XD How ’bout you?

THANKS!!!! Aaah, yeah, that’s a good choice!!!!!! LOL!!! I think maybe a few others guessed it but for the most part we kept the secret good. πŸ˜‚

    • Katherine

      Thank you so much, Shanessa!!!!!!πŸ’— Welcome back!!!!! *hugs* I know what you mean – I’ve had a lot more schoolwork these past two weeks. I’m still alive. I wrote up this post and that was exciting! I hope everything is going great with you!!!!! Love ya, girl!!!<3<3<3

    • Alana

      Hey, Shanessa. I’m glad you’re back. I’m glad you like it. Yeah, I’ve been busy with school, too. This is a little bit of free time I have right now, so I’m trying to catch up on everything. Again, glad to have you back. πŸ˜ΊπŸ’™

  • Jane

    I loved reading through all the questions and all your answers!!!!!!! I also wanted to congratulate you for making your longest post!!! I mean seriously, I made the mistake of reading through all of it at the same time and now my brain feels like oatmeal!!!! XD but it was still fun!! I’m gonna answer Mary’s questions. πŸ˜‰

    1. My mom came up with this game called β€œHuggie monster” where you go hide until and when the β€œhuggie monster” (usually my mom) find us, you have to try to hug her before she hugs you. It pretty much hide and seek with hugging added in. XD

    2. I have a plastic spoon collection. It currently has around 30-40 spoons in it.

    3. Any type of Christian music. Right now I really β€œfear is a liar” by Zack Williams.

    4. My dad has microwaved peas for lunch almost every single day and they make the kitchen smells weird for about 30 minutes. Just know that you won’t want breakfast after you smell it. *shudders*

    5. I would be an eagle or any type of falcon because I could fly!!!

    6. I would want to be Tiana or Rapunzel because of their determination and great personality’s.

    7. Kylianna is a name I just heard a few days ago and it’s so cool!

    8. Maybe how to play piano or…. I don’t know. I don’t think I’m good enough at anything to really teach it to someone. XD

    9. I’ve never liked maroon.

    10. There is a very long list to chose from but there was this one time on April fools day, when my dad didn’t feel well, so I put a Rudolph nose on his truck and he didn’t notice until someone pointed it out later that day. Except, I couldn’t get the antlers to go on so it was just the nose. (If your confused, just look up β€œRudolph the red nosed reindeer car costume.)

    11. To be honest I didn’t get this one, but I did try walking down the stairs backwards just for fun. XD

    • Issabelle

      Awww, THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hahaha, THANKS, Jane!!!! I guess this post is going in the book then for longest post. (Let’s hope I don’t ever make one longer. I don’t think any of us can handle that. XD) Ooof, yeah, I gotcha there. XD I’ve read some pretty long posts before and my brain already feels like oatmeal. πŸ˜‚ YAAAAYY!!!!! *grabs bucket of popcorn and leans forward to read Jane’s answers*
      Haha, Huggie Monster sounds SUPER fun!
      LOL!!! Wow a plastic spoon collection you say? COOL!!!!! YOU GO GIRL!!!! I used to have a sock monkey collection years ago.
      AAAAHHH I LOVE FEAR IS A LIAR!!!!!! And Zack Williams is really cool!!!!!
      Hmmm…microwaved peas? πŸ€” That actually doesn’t sound very appealing. πŸ˜† Have you tried it? Do you’d even think it’d taste good? *thinking*
      Aaaahh, YES!!!! Eagles are soooo cool!!!!!!
      Ooooh, those are some SUPER GREAT picks!!!! *high fives*
      LOL!!! Hmmm….I wonder who came up with that cool name. 🀣
      SAME!!!!! But, hey, if you know anything about how to play the piano then sign me up as your apprentice.
      I’ve not been a huge fan of maroon either, but sometimes it’s okay.
      LOL!!!! Girl, you’re pranks are GENIUS!!!!!!!! I LOOOOVE the Rudolph nose idea. XD
      Hahaha, did it go well? XD

    • Katherine

      Thank you so much, Jane!!!!!!!! I was getting exhausted when I was writing it, but it was still a lot of fun!!!!!! I applaud you for reading the whole thing!!!!!πŸ‘ That takes some serious determination!
      Oooh, I love your answers to Mary’s questions!!!!! Huggie Monster sounds like a fun game! XD
      I LOVE “Fear is a Liar”!!!!! It is such a great song!!! Yes, Tiana and Rapunzel are two of my favorite princesses!!!!!!! I love how they never give up on their dreams!
      Oooh, I would TOTALLY love to learn how to play the piano!!!!!!! I would definitely take lessons from you!πŸ˜€
      HAHA, I love the Rudolph prank!!!! That’s so genius!!!!
      Lol, I shoulda tried it out to! I am still convinced, though, that the question was a trick question. XD

  • Trixie

    Woohoo!! Four tags?!?! That’s awesome!!! Y’all are so incredible and deserve it so much!!! All those answers are amazing!!! And that writing advice is good! I kinda need more inspiration to sit down and write…. Anyways, I have to say, if I could be a Disney princess, I will totally choose Belle. She’s been my favorite since I was 6, and I love her personality, the adventure, and that castle: I dream of living there. Especially with a library that big!!!
    Once again I can’t express how much I love for y’all that you got all these tags!! You guys are so incredible and amazing!!

    • Issabelle

      WOOOHOOOO!!!!!!! Yep!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!! Aww, girl, you’re just the SWEETEST!!!! *sends you loads of chocolate* YES!!!! I’m sooo happy to hear you think so!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!! Girl, I totally feel ya. It’s been really hard for me to actually sit myself down to write!! I’m soooo happy I could provide some inspiration!!!!!!!!!!!! YESSSS!!!!!! Aaaahhh Belle is one of my FAVORITE Disney princesses since I was like four or something. XD *high fives* YES!!! Aaaahh man I soooo wish I could live in that castle and I NEED that library. XD I’ve gotten a novel idea for a retelling of Beauty and the Beast but like tell the story from the Beast’s POV. I thought that’d be kind of cool.
      Girl, I cannot express how much your comments always mean to me!!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!! <33 You're the most AMAZINEST!!!!! Much love to you!!! THANK YOU!!!!! <33

    • Katherine

      THANK YOU SO MUCH, TRIXIE!!!!!!!!!!!! Awwww!😊 You’re so sweet!!!<3
      Oooh, Belle is an excellent choice!!!! And she loves reading too!!!!!!! Her castle is incredible!!!!! Have you read Beauty and the Beast: Lost in a Book by Jennifer Donnelly? I haven't read it yet, so I don't know if it's good or not.
      Awwwww, thank you so much, girl!!!!!!!!❀️❀️ You are truly incredible and amazing too!!!!! Thank you so much for reading and commenting!!!!!<333

  • JadeSky

    Ahhh I loved all of your answers and were well known enough to be tagged for the Liebster Award FIVE TIMES!!!! (Seriously, how did I NOT know y’all are sisters?) All of your tidbits and trivia about yourselves were just a joy to read, and helped me to learn about you even more, which was awesome! (Issabelle, the continued support on my blog posts is 100000 percent appreciated, so again, thank you for that!) This whole blog is a whole bubbly realm of encouragement and thank you so much for continuing to lift up fellow writers, bloggers, and blog-readers overall! You definitely deserve all the tags and love.

    • Issabelle

      Aaaahh, THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH, JADESKY!!!!!!! Yeah, after I posted this post I saw that TWN was tagged for the Liebster Award again. XD It’s really crazy. (LOL!!!!

  • Mahitha R.

    Haha, your answers made me laugh so hard for the entire post!! 🀣 My family must’ve thought I was crazy for laughing so much!! Well, anyway, I was wondering where you guys went but seeing that it took y’all two weeks to write this post *inhales sharply* that’s such a long time. I don’t think I would have even a single fraction of that patience. XD

  • Lily

    Phew!! I made it to the end!!! *high fives all around*

    First off, I just want to say ‘Hi’ to Alana! I don’t think we’ve officially met; very nice to meet you, I’m Lily.

    Second of all, are you guys seriously related?!! (if you don’t wanna answer, that’s okay) πŸ™‚

    • Issabelle

      YAAAAYYY!!!!!! *high fives you back* *sends you chocolate as an award* *hands you a really big trophy*

      LOL!!!! YESSSS!!!!! We seriously are sisters. I know, it’s pretty hard to believe since Kat and Alana clearly don’t share my craziness, but we’re still related!!!! XD (Also, sorry for how long it took me to respond to this comment! Life’s been a li’l crazy. πŸ˜‰ )

    • Katherine

      AWESOME JOB!!!!!!πŸ‘ *high-fives* I am amazed you read the whole thing!!!!!!

      Yep, we’re seriously related!!!! It was a well kept secret!!!! But it was time to spill the beans (or reveal the secretπŸ˜‰).

      Thank you so much for reading and commenting!!!!!!!<3

      • Lily

        Aww man! I was reading all of your answers, and now looking back, I should’ve suspected that you guys were related somehow (this is why I’d be a better Watson, lol!).

        You’re so welcome, it was a lot of fun. πŸ™‚

        • Katherine

          πŸ˜„ Haha, yeah, we’re very similar in a lot of things even though we have some differences. And we think alike most of the time. (Lol, I’m probably a better Watson myself.πŸ™‚)

          Thank you, Lily!!!! I’m glad you enjoyed it!!!! πŸ™‚

  • Addie

    Great post, guys! I like that it was lifestyle-ish! XD I loved reading your answers and getting to know you better! I can personally relate to all of you guys but I definitely relate to Issa the most. XD her answers were the same answers I would have given!

    Great post! Really enjoyed it ❀

    P.S. Issa- False Prince mentions counter: Hmm… I think I counted two? XD

    False Prince fangirls forever!!!

    • Issabelle

      THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH, ADDIE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hahaha, yeah, I didn’t think about that at first but it was kind of lifestyle-ish! AWESOME!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!! Haha, YEAAA!!!! *gasp* Really? *high fives* Maybe we’re unknown twins? (And the mind-blowing secrets keep on continuing….😱)

      THANK YOU, GIRL!!!!! That means soooo much!! ❀️

      LOL!!!! Really? I thought I was getting better at not talking about TFP a lot. πŸ˜† *gives up trying to not act like an obsessed fan and goes back to screaming to everyone to READ. THIS. BOOK!*
      False Prince Fangirls Forever!!!! <33

  • Rayna

    I love this so much πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ (no, I’m actually laughing right now)
    I can relate to a LOT of these answers 😎

    Also, you girls are sneaky. Very sneaky. Most of us didn’t know you’re sisters! 🀨🀨

    • Issabelle

      Aww, THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH, RAYNA!!!!!! That means a LOT!!!!! <33 (LOL!!!! 🀣🀣🀣)
      Woohooo!!!! *high fives* That's soooo AWESOME!!! Also, I LOOOVE THAT EMOJI!!!!! 😎

      Hahaha, yeah, pretty clever, amiright! XD *bows dramatically for actually being able to keep a secret for a decent amount of time* That's really like first time ever for me. XD THANK YOU for reading and commenting, girl!!!! ❀️❀️❀️

    • Katherine

      Thank you so much, Rayna!!!!!!! I’m so glad it made you laugh!!! I was laughing as I wrote my answers for the post!!!🀣🀣🀣🀣
      Awesome!!!!😎

      Hehehehe. Yep, we’re very sneaky. πŸ˜‰ It was a lot of fun keeping a secret for a while. And then I saw that one question and I was like “this is it. I’m telling everyone our biggest secret”. And Is was like “OK!” Thank you so much for reading and commenting!!!<3<3

  • Alexa

    This was SOOO fun to read through!!! I loved how you all answered the questions in different colors of text. It was so fun to get to know y’all better! Issabelle’s answer: “Putting in ’em GIFs. ” made me chuckle, XD! And Katherine! I can TOTALLY relate to being an introvert. I may seem like an extrovert on here…but no. I’m an introvert, lol.

    *Does double take when reading* YOU ARE SISTERS???? *Mind Blown* I always wondered how y’all knew each other whether it was through the internet, or school, or just being friends…etc. But I never guessed sisters! That’s SO awesome! You all have the same goal through this blog and it is even cooler to work on it with EACH OTHER!!! This was so fun to read!!

    • Issabelle

      THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH, ALEXA!!!!!!!!!!!!! Haha, THANKS!!!!!! We were hoping it’d be easier to follow along who was saying what. πŸ˜‰ YESSS!!!! THE GIFS ARE DA BEST!!!!! 🀣

      *bow dramatically for totally being able to catch Alexa off guard* Yes, we are sisters. XD Hahaha, yeah, I had always been wondering what everyone thought how we knew each other since we’d never actually said. THANKS!!!!!!!! IKR!!! Blogging is sooooo much more fun when I can do it with others. (Which is why I’m not very likely to ever start a solo blog…though, technically I have so never mind. XD) THANK YOU, GIRL!!!!!! <33

      • Alexa

        GIFS ARE AWESOME! That’s seriously so cool though that you have a blog with your sisters! I asked my sister if she wanted to do one………….so said no, XD. Oh well, I guess I get to share the magic with you LOVELY LADIES!

        • Issabelle

          GIFS ARE DA BEST!!!!!!!! Yeah, it’s really awesome. What??!! Did you not tell her that blogging is EPIC??!! (I thought the epic part would be very convincing. XD) Maybe send her to TWN and I’ll get her all excited about the blogosphere so she’ll wanna join. 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣 (Okay, I actually don’t really think I have that power.) Oooh, YEA!!!! We’ll be your writing sisters. πŸ™‚ *hugs*

    • Katherine

      Hi, Alexa!!!! Thank you so much!!!!!!! Thank you – I thought the different colors was pretty cool!πŸ˜€ Oh my goodness – that is awesome that you’re an introvert like me! I totally understand what it’s like being an introvert. Although, I think the blogosphere brings out our hidden extroverted side.πŸ˜‰

      πŸ˜„ Yep, we’re sisters!!! Hehe, I wondered if anyone suspected we were sisters. I guess we did a good job at keeping it a secret.πŸ˜‰ THANK YOU!!! That’s one of the things I love most about this blog is doing it with my sisters!!! I’m so glad you enjoyed reading it!!!! πŸ™‚

      • Alexa

        Yes, introvert buddies! AND YES the blogosphere does bring out our hidden extrovert side! The only people I’m extroverted to (if that makes sense) are my family, friends, and my blogging buddies! So y’all get to see the side of me that I normally don’t show to people. We get to view Katherine’s hidden side too!!! Front row seats in the movie of your extrovert side, yeah! That’s still so awesome that you get to share it with your sisters! GO SISTER POWER!

        • Katherine

    *out of breath*

    I FINALLY made it over here! Sorry it took so long, there’s been a bit of craziness the past few days.

    *also realizing that I haven’t read the latest chapter of Robyn Hood and another awesome post just came out today*

    I must read those as soon as I can! But meanwhile, this post was great as usual, you three. You’re so fun together! Can I just tell Alana that learning Spanish is an AWESOME life choice! Of course I am obsessed with Spanish culture.

    I also loved your music choices. My favorites are: Christian Edition, Casting Crowns, The Hoppers, Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, Elevation, Hillsong, Bethel, Kari Jobe… and lots more I’m sure I’m forgetting. I also like Mariah Carey music. And Faouzia – her songs have no swears and all teach good messages. Also love Celine Dion because her music is so classy and again, no swears. Her gospel music is awesome. I’m listening to her song “Call the Man” right now. And “That’s the Way It Is” reminds me so much of my passion for writing.

    And Issa, HOW do you skip breakfast?!? If I skipped breakfast I could never concentrate at school. I’ve never really liked breakfast, honestly, but it’s just sort of necessary for me. I’ve tried skipping it before and COULD NOT.

    Anyways, hope all your lives and your writing is going awesome!

    • Issabelle

      LOL!!!! Girl, it’s TOTALLY okay!!!! Life’s been almost out of control for me for the past few weeks, so I 100% understand!!!! Besides, I get behind on blogger’s blogs all the time, so it’s really no big deal at all!!!!!!!!! <33

      Haha, again, no worries about that!!!! You're not allowed to stress about this li'l ole blog, kay? If you miss a couple of posts, that's alright!!! I promise! <33

      THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! Hahaha, THANKS!!! You should see the three of us in person. We're ridiculous, though most of that is my fault. πŸ˜†
      Ooooh, I LOOOOVE Casting Crowns, Elevation, Hillsong, Bethal, and Kari Job!!!!! And those other artists sound sooooo COOL!!!!!!!! That's AWESOME that you have a song that makes you think about your passion for writing!!!! <33 I have a few songs that makes me wanna go sit down and write!!!

      LOL!!! Well, first off, I do normally only eat about one to two meals a day (if that tells you how busy my life is XD), but that was actually Katherine who said that about skipping breakfast. I normally only skip breakfast on weekends or when I don't feel like getting any. #Lazy 😜
      THANK YOU!!!!! I hope the craziness will slow down and that your writing's going amazing!

      • Joy Caroline

        Yes! It’s awesome to have a song that encourages me to write!

        Oof, I forgot Katherine’s answers were in pink. *slaps forehead* I just associate you with pink for some reason, maybe because of your profile picture?

        HOW?! HOW do you eat less than three meals per day??? If I tried to do that I would NOT survive. Seriously, that’s crazy. No matter how busy I am, I always make time for food!

        • Issabelle

          YESSSSS!!!!!!!!! <33 IKR!!!!!

          LOL!!! That's okay. Hehehehe, that's probably it....would you believe that I used to not even like pink all the well until Genie totally got me hooked on the cover. XD She's VERY persuading. XD (Also, I associate you with green all the time and I have no idea why. πŸ˜†)

          Hahaha, I dunno. A lotta times I'm just busy working on school or writing or talking with my peeps that I'm too lazy to go fix myself something to eat. I don't really ever make the smartest choices....which is probably why I'm a writer. XD Well, that's good, 'cause skipping meals isn't really a wise choice. XD Literally, guys, just don't do what I do. I'm not really someone who ever sets a good example. 🀣🀣🀣

          • Joy Caroline

            Pink has always been my favorite color! Green? That’s kind of weird, unless it’s because the background of my blog is a greenish color. XD
            Since my dad, my brother and I are away so often, my mom always cooks our meals. She doesn’t really like anyone else to go in the kitchen, lol. Which is fine with me. But you should get some of those instant pasta or soup things!

            • Issabelle

              YEA!!! Soooo cool!!!!! LOL IKR!!! I think it’s cause of your blog’s background color, though. I mean, what else could it be! πŸ˜†

              Yeah, that makes sense. My mom does most of the cooking too, when she has time. LOL!!!!!! Ooooh, GREAT idea! I think we have some of those. Not sure where though. *shrugs* πŸ˜‚

    • Katherine

      *gives you bottle of water*
      It’s alright, girl! Don’t stress yourself. I hope the craziness dies down soon.<3

      Thank you so much!!! Haha, I'm glad you think so!!!! πŸ™‚

      Oooh, those are awesome music choices!!!!!!πŸ˜€ I really like the song "All I Want For Christmas" by Mariah Carey (it's the only one I know by her). Ooh, those other music artist sound cool. Thanks for letting me know that their songs have no swear words!πŸ™‚

      Eh eh, skipping breakfast is a habit I've picked up in recent years. I definitely do NOT recommend it though. I just have so much school work and getting breakfast takes extra time, so I often cut it out. I will admit, it's not the smartest thing to do. I've been trying to eat breakfast more regularly though.

      Thank you! I think my writing is going ok. I hope your writing is going awesome too!!!!!πŸ™‚πŸ’—

      • Joy Caroline

        Ooh, I have a few Mariah Carey recommendations! You should listen to these:
        – Fly Like a Bird
        – Make it Happen
        – I Wish You Well
        – Hero
        – There’s Got to Be a Way
        – Someday
        – Without You
        – Vision of Love

        You should NOT skip breakfast, girl. I recommend hot cereal because it fills you really well.
        My writing’s going pretty good, thanks!

        • Katherine

          Ooh, yes, bring on the recommendations!πŸ˜€ Oooh,cool!!!!!!!! I’ll have to check those out!!!!! Thank you for the recommendations!!!!!

          I ate a biscuit for breakfast two days ago, is that good enough? XD Alright, I’ll eat breakfast today.πŸ™‚ I don’t think I’ve had hot cereal before, but I will definitely try it . . . when I figure out what it is exactly. XD Thank you for the recommendation!!!!!
          Awesome!!! I’m glad it’s going great!!! πŸ™‚

            • Katherine

              I totally will!!! πŸ™‚

              Thank you for explaining it to me!!! I’ve recently learned to like grits (the homemade kind – not the instant kind). Ooh, I love pepperjack cheese!!!! That sounds so good!!!!

  • JadeSky

    Ahhhh this post was amazing! I loved all of your answers. (Seriously, how did I not know you three were sisters? AWESOME!) I also loved that you were well known enough to be tagged for the Liebster Award FIVE TIMES. Like, that is a huge accomplishment!

    On a (slightly?) more serious note, you totally deserve all of the nominations. This blog is so bubbly and encouraging and it’s no surprise that so many teens want to come here and stay for a while. Thanks a ton for all your support and encouragement for fellow teen bloggers and writers! (And thanks for your continued support of Stepping Stones Book Reviews, Issabelle…knowing that I reached at least ONE person with my passion for stories is super encouraging.)

    (Sorry about the late comment! I actually read this post the day it came out but somehow my comment didn’t get posted…)

    • Issabelle

(Awww, girl, you're just too sweet!! Your posts/comments/replies ALWAYS make my day!!!! 😊 You're totally welcome!!!! Much love to ya!!! <33) Aww, girl, it just means sooooooo much that you think that!!!!!!!! Aww, it's honestly an honor to be able to lift up other writers and bloggers and readers!!!!!!!

    Awesome post, Issabelle, Katherine and Alana! I loved reading all of your answers!!!!!! WAIT, you guys are sisters?! I had no idea but it makes total sense!!!! Also I have to mention that I’m so happy to see that all of three of you mentioned TobyMac as a favourite artist! He is one of my favourites too!!!!

    • Issabelle

      THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH, GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAAY!! I’m SO happy to hear!!!! LOL!! Aah, yes, we are sisters. Like that was probably the best kept secret of my life. XD YESSSS!!!!!! TobyMac is AWESOME!!!!! *pumps fist in the air* YES!! That is SOO COOL that he’s a fav as well. *high fives* Have you heard his latest song, Help Is On the Way (Maybe Midnight)?

      • Ribbon Ash

        *high-fives you back* YES!!!! That song is one of my new favourites from him!!!! I was really moved by it. And “I’m sorry (a lament)” and “21 years” are also new songs of his that are really moving to me.

        • Issabelle
