5. Im currently reading throne of glass and im trash for both Dorian and Chaol. send help.
So that was boring,right? I'm sorry that picture is terrible quality...

all_things_austen Ooookay, so I was tagged by @matxi_books to tell #5thingsaboutme. Pre warning, I haven't had many "life experiences" so don't expect this to be anything exciting 🏼
1. I live on the outskirts of a small town in country Victoria, Australia. It's right at the bottom of Victoria, near Wilsons Promontory National Park if by chance you've heard of that!
2. I had scarlet fever twice as a child, so for that I AM grateful I live in the 21st century and not the 18th/19th... 3. I've only been over seas once, to New Zealand and I absolutely loved it. The only other time I've been "over seas" is when traveling to Phillip Island, which is just a drive over a very long bridge Phillip Island is also where the Hemsworth Brothers grew up so yes, I grew up just an hours drive from them! #FunFact
4. I turn "one and twenty" this year and in celebration I'm going to Oz Comic Con and the Jurassic World exhibition at the Melbourne Museum because I'm nerdy like that and hate par-tays 🏽
5. And last but not least, upon hearing the Hydra/Cap plot I spent the day wandering aimlessly around my place of work in a state of total confusion and sadness, I'm still not yet recovered. And so I will be now going to binge watch Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D to try and console myself.
And I tag @lookingformrdarcy @tales.to.remember @ohmydarcy @justsamriley @sebastianstantrash

  •   matxi_books I heard something about Capy too, I just couldn't understand it... About the overseas thing... I've done a big one to the States but while in the university... Otherwise I wouldn't have gone really anywhere!! But I love to travel, that's basically my life plan!! And Australia is on my plans too!! It's just so damn far away!!!! I've never to a comic con or anything similar but is sounds super great!! You don't have to go partying to celebrate it! Even if I love to party, more when I was younger... There's time for everything!! 8h
  •   matxi_books Again, the Cap thing makes no sense... He's always been the most morale character... I don't know of the future of this comic reboot... Not good... 8h
  •   the_daydreamer_girl_ this just gives me more reasons to like you not only are you an austenite but also an Australian( I have never been there but I love that country) and a marvel fan 7h
  •   tinytwophotos I know I'm going to wake up and it'll just be a bad dream ('bout Cap ) 6h

matxi_books Turning @themreadsbooks tag #5thingsaboutme upside down!!! #compareandcontrast .
1. I must have wanted to learn to play the piano, because I learned it!! Haha since I was a child I was more into art than sports, especially into music, that's why I was in ballet, chorus, music and piano classes! I actually have a piano... Even if it's been more than 10 years I have played it... I was no good 😟 .
2. I don't do Halloween, I do carnival!!! But no harry potter themes! Actually even if I never followed the show One Tree Hill, I remember some pictures of a costume the character Peyton made about dark angel... And I have always wanted to do that!! That and Poison Ivy!! (Shameful fact, I loooove HP movies but I've never read the books! I started with the first one and I just couldn't... This was before I actually started reading!) .
3. I don't remember my first plane ride... I guess I was around 2... And then in took me like 20 years to get into one again... I was scared of me being scared!! But no such thing happened!! Now I love to travel!!! .
4. You bad girl... Pranking people...hahaha But you were not alone! Me and my friends used to do that too, calling at odd hours...!!hahaha .
5. I'm from Bilbao and in Spain we are known for being exaggerated and doing things big or not bothering to do them in first place. That being said, I never twisted/sprained any part of my body until I went ahead and broke my foot!! Such a silly and stupid accident... now there's nothing left to do but laugh about it!! Haha I gave more from myself that I intended too!

  •   all_things_austen Okay no worries! 🏼 12h
  •   themreadsbooks I grew up on Carnaval (I'm from the country that makes it a big deal about it). The one thing I love about it is dressing up. But since Carnaval isn't a thing in the US, there's Halloween to meet my needs for wanting to be something else. My favorite costume is vampire! 😈 I never pranked people after a certain time of the day. I had an early bedtime. 10h
  •   themreadsbooks Talking about bedtime...my parents would tuck me in then watch one of the 9 o'clock soap operas that they didn't see fit for me to watch. LOL I would go to the hallway and watch the reflection of the TV on the glass door. 10h
  •   matxi_books @themreadsbooks hahaha i remember doing something like that with the X files, when they wouldn't let me watch or other shows too.... Haha 10h

Normal Arlene ● BBG R2W2 ● Toronto
mamasanten When I see your face. There's not a thing that I would change. 'Cause you're amazing, just the way you are!!Another long post here. Why? Because that's how I role! #5thingsaboutme in yo face thanks in part to the incredible @bbgmamastrong who is always #keeping it real. She is the perfect mix of serious and funny and always knows when to hold 'em, when to fold 'em and when to walk away! And for my darling #fitmomqueenbee who is always so sassy and a whole lot o' badassy!!! So here we go, this is me, just the way I am!!I have a life long love affair with California. When I was growing up my parents used to send me and my brother to LA for summer holidays. My father's relatives (he is one of 8) all immigrated there, including my grandparents. I was bitter, not really but kinda, because I couldn't understand why he was the only one to pick cold and freezing Toronto to live. Anyway, that's where it all started. I told my husband when we met that that was my long term goal. Fast forward to today, we are in the process of trying to see this dream come to fruition and are looking at less than a year to make it happen! I have not eaten sugar or chocolate in 13 weeks, the same time I started #bbg. I've been eating only real foods. Nothing bagged, boxed, processed, spat on, stepped on, etc. Not to say that I don't crave that shizz or that I will never ever again. But for now, this is what works for me. Sugar is an addiction and turns me into a raging lunatic and right now I want be as far away from that craycray as possible. I can count to 10 in 6 different languages. Dutch, French, Spanish, Tagalog, Chinese and English. How about you? CONTINUED 14h
  •   mamasanten @kaitflab2fab I'll be knocking on your door first. And the invitation for Belize is in the mail!! Xo 42min
  •   mamasanten @fitmomqueenbee thank you doll! you've been around too, it's always the best to be able to experience different cultures and locations. Hope your future travels take you far and wide too!! 40min
  •   mamasanten @bbgmamastrong hey, you lived in Hawaii!! I tried to convince my husband to relocate there too as that was one of the other places I've always wanted to live. Would love to hang with you in Belize, the invitations are in the mail. Everything I said was all true! Kenny Rogers classic, one of my favs by him!! 36min

paleorunbbg Both a #nonsweatyselfie and #5thingsaboutme for @jcw.bbg Thanks for the tag! I kept with the 5 theme and sent out 5 tags. Let's see some non-sweaty selfies and learn more about our BBG comrades!
1. I am the oldest cousin on both sides of my family and an oldest sister to 2 brothers. I have a crazy-funny family and we joke (somewhat seriously) that it should be a reality show.
2. I've worked as a Physical Therapist for almost 15 years and almost exclusively in trauma: brain injury, spinal cord injury, burns, amputation, stroke... I love the complexity and hospital setting.
3. My favorite thing about where I live is the diversity. Boulder has a reputation for hippies and pot smokers, but is also home to over 20 Olympic athletes, university professors (my neighbor is literally a rocket scientist), crunchy outdoorsy and wealthy posh people.

4. I am currently growing out self-cut bangs (always a mistake) and a bad dye job. Both hidden well in this photo.
5. One of my favorite quotes is, "what other people think of me is none of my business". @ellen_degeneres, can we be friends? You seem so cool and you're obviously very wise and grounded. DM me and we'll get something on the books.

themreadsbooks Hello!!! I'm here to answer the tag #5thingsaboutme tagged by the wonderful @bookishreview

1. I've always wanted to learn to play the piano. Ive been told I've got Chopin hands.
2. I was gonna be Luna Lovegood for Halloween last year. I'm gonna try to start assembling my costume earlier this year. You might see me as Luna this year!
3. First time I travelled by plane I was by myself and 7 years old.
4. I used to love prank calling people I didn't know.
5. I've never broken a bone. But I've twisted/sprained both my feet and arms. Luckily not at the same time. It was a pain to shower!
Bonus fact: I'm over 6 feet tall...so strangers tend to stare or point at me, but mostly come up to me and ask the most dreaded questions: how tall are you? Do you play basketball? Do you have trouble finding taller men to date? (Or once they find out I have a fiancé) is your fiancé taller than you? (He's not, but does that really matter, people??? He treats me like the goddess that I am! ). I'm tagging a few people. I'd love to know more about you!!! By the way, I can't remember who is the artist in Society6 that I bought this bag from. If you know, please let me know. Right now this is my favorite item!

  •   themreadsbooks @sadie_reads_them_all I have a friend who is about my height...I still beat her by a centimeter (yes, I love the metric system). We used to call ourselves the twin towers! lol Yes for tall Geminis bookworms 🏼🏼🏼 2d
  •   themreadsbooks @2manybeautifulbooks awww thanks...I'm always thinking how much more of my dorky side do I wanna show to people! 2d
  •   sadie_reads_them_all The twin towers! I have a friend that is 6ft tall too and we were co-workers. Our boss called us that! Hahahah Tall Gemini Bookworms-that's very specific and wonderful! 2d
  •   themreadsbooks Oh wow! lol that's funny @sadie_reads_them_all 2d

bookishreview #BookTag @a.chronicle.of__ #5thingsaboutme Thank you I think these are fun and I'd love for any of you to do this if ! Make sure to tag me so I see your answers! I never know who to tag *
🤘After looking on my bookshelves, I realized that possibly my most read book is CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR by #jeanmauel Bet you didn't see that coming! *
🤘I make a list of emoji demands every year. I feel strongly about getting Mr. T! I pity the poor fool who doesn't agree!!
*
🤘When I drive I make car noises. For example, when I turn I make the squealing tire noise. I forget I do this and then people make fun of me
*
🤘I found the best T. Rex lamp yesterday! I totally freaked out, embarrassing my niece 🤓 and I was talked out of buying it. I have an unhealthy passion for dinosaurs. *
🤘I have the best career ideas, like professional snorkeler, 1$ advice, rock and shell collector, awesome mail sender, adventurer of the unexpected... Sadly none of these are paying off🤔
*
Tell me about you!! #booklife #bookworm #booknerd #bookstagram #bookcrush #clanofthecavebear #readersofinstagram #booknerdigans #vsco #historicalfiction #instaread #bookstagrammer

health_fitness_coffee Tagged by @lmacbbg1 for 5 things about me I'll try to do this as best as I can on my phone! 1️⃣ I am a giant science nerd. My major is in the biological sciences field and it is truly my passion. I could literally sit and read scientific journals forever! My favorite part of my major/future career is microbiology. I'm absolutely fascinated by the tiny creatures that can be harmful, but can be helpful also. 2️⃣ I'm a huge animal person. I wanted to be a veterinarian until I worked at a vet clinic and realized that it just wasn't for me. Once I'm done with school and have a steady job and a house I plan on fostering as many dogs and cats as I can. 3️⃣ I rescued my cat from the vet clinic I worked at. He came into our impound only 3 weeks old, and his mother was no where to be found. He had a little run in with a wood chipper when someone found him and he lost a few toes from one of his back feet. It was my job to bottle feed him and keep his wound clean. He has been my baby ever since, and his name is Toes 4️⃣ My boyfriend and I have been dating for four years, and he is truly my best friend. We share similar values and are the same in a fundamental way, yet we still have enough differences to lead our own lives. I absolutely believe that we have a once in a lifetime thing, and I wouldn't have it any other way ️ 5️⃣ I'm from Minnesota, and winter is my favorite time of year! I absolutely LOVE below freezing temps and all the snow. I'll complain about both, but once it's summer I miss winter all the time lol. So there's 5 things about me 🙃 Tagged ladies, you know what to do! #bbg #bikinibodyguide #bbgcommunity #bbggirls #bbgsisters #bbgweek10 #bbgvegetarian #weightlossjourney #5thingsaboutme 4d

alexandrajwieland I was tagged by the ever so fabulous @bbg_247 to do #5thingsaboutme .. So here goes! Tagged ladies, you know the drill. I picked you because I stalkishly adore your accounts

1. I love onions. I will eat them on/with anything. I love them raw on toasted cheese sandwiches. My obsession is sick and shameless.
2. I'm really bad at math. I have to concentrate just to write down numbers, I tend to switch them by mistake.
3. I was only 22 when I had my son. I wouldn't change a thing. He is the reason my heart beats. That boy changed my life.
4. I have a dry sense of humour and I dead pan a lot. People take me seriously and subsequently get really weird impressions of me. I used to worry, now I couldn't care less.
5. I used to be a smoker. I stopped when I found out I was pregnant and started again when I stopped breast feeding. I feel like I've finally kicked it this time and I feel SO DAMN GOOD for it!
Your turn!

  •   mamasanten Oh, I'm quite flattered, stalk away! 😙 Congratulations on kicking the habit! I know many who have tried to quit unsuccessfully. You sound like an awesome mama! 'The reason your heart beats' We should get along really well, I also suck at math! I love onions too, but they don't love me back! So I cook them for my husband instead and just stare. I love this tag so will get right on it. Thank you so much for tagging me!!! 5d
  •   bbg_247 Haha I've never heard of onion obsession! you're so strong to have a child at 22 ️ and yay for quitting smoking! 🏼🏼 4d

michelenoelani68 Hi, I am Michele. I have never been to quilt market but would love to go some day. Here are 5 things about me:
1. This year my husband and I celebrate 27 years of marriage
2. I am a horrible driver, if I ever offer to drive you someplace, I highly recommend you decline. 🙃
3. In addition to sewing/quilting, I love to camp.🏕
4. I am an ovarian cancer survivor.🏻
5. I wish I had wanted to sew as a kid when my mom tried to teach me. Now I realize how much fun we could have had together and how much that time would mean to both of us.
This a rare long weekend for me. I took some vacation days to camp but we came home a little early because it became really rainy. It is ok, it is a perfect time to lock myself away in my sewing room!
