One word: exams.
Basically to rephrase what Paul at The Galaxial Word (his blog is awesome, go check it out!) said right here, we (the two of us + Paul) were thinking about possibly creating some sort of blogger collab/blog tour thing!
So here’s the dealio: if you’re interested in joining our random collab fest, feel free to drop us (or Paul) a comment and – if you have one – a topic idea! ^-^
~ Thanks for coming by ~
Sarah & Faith
I, Sarah, am basically following her lead, so here I go!
(Faith: Featuring me and more GIFs than your Christmas GIFts! Actually, no. I hope you had tons of gifts. Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, gifts are nice. 🙂 )
Sarah 6.0: State your full name, please
Sarah 7.0: – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
Sarah 6.0: … Why is it all blacked out?
Sarah 7.0: Because it’s my real name. My full, legal name. All 27 letters.
Sarah 6.0: Why … 27 letters?
Sarah 7.0: I like to blame my Arab parents. We have a thing for long names with lots of a’s.
Sarah 6.0: Then why is your first name blacked out? Surely nothing bad can come out of putting 5 letters on a website. Besides, it’s like written 50 times in this page alone.
Sarah 7.0: That’s that thing… It’s not my real name.
(F: She’s the opposite of me. Alright, to all Sarah’s peeps: you can now all come over to my sideee… you can have FAITH that I’m a truth-teller. Faithfulness is (literally) my first name. [And actually, my middle name is another adjective. BEAT THAT, WORD NERDS! Uh, I mean, isn’t that kinda cool? If you feel like caring?] Important side note: I’m probably naming my children Joy and possibly Hope. I named my beta fish Happy once… then I found him curled up in the corner of his tank one day. He wasn’t so happy anymore.)
HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO KNOW IF SHE REALLY LOVED THE BOOKS SHE LIKED? MY 7.0 version is a lie! What if she’s a figment of Faith’s imagination? #blogception (F: Right. Because I talk to myself. IT’S NOT WHAT YOU THINK.)
(Bonus: any one who can guess my real name (it’s an anagram, btw) will not get a prize, but a shout out and an interview with SARAH trails of into maniacal laughter)
Ahem, let us move on.
Sarah 6.0: Why have you been so inactive in the blogosphere as of late?
Sarah 7.0: … But I’ve been active. Whatchu talkin’ ‘bout?
Sarah 6.0: I’m not talking about posting, dummy. (I swear, I get dumber with every reincarnation). I’m asking you why you are so… not verbose. I mean, look at Faith. She comments paragraphs wherever she goes, and manages to spread rainbow vomit and unicorn farts no matter how tired she is. Paul and Yarravy agree with me, right?
I’M SORRY I’M SHY, OKAY? I mean, it’s hard to think up of comments. I mean, do you want to know how Faith and I became friends? DO YOU? (F: It was… terrifying to say the least. Also, on the outside I think we make for a kinda unlikely pair.)
Sarah 6.0: Uh, no. But if you could answer my original question, that would be great.
Sarah 7.0: I WAS SO WEIRD BACK IN YEAR 9 THAT I NUMBERED ALL MY NEW FRIENDS. Wives 1-69. That’s right. WIVES. We still laugh about it now. (F: AHHHH THE BEANS HAVE FINALLY BEEN SPILLED! I actually get nightmares about it now. I think I was around no.18?? #stillscarredtothisday)
Sarah 6.0:… What was the point of that tangent? (F: Wait, what point? There’s many points in a graph for a tangent function… )
Sarah 7.0: TO SHOW YOU HOW AWKWARD AND SOCIALLY INEPT AND COMPLETELY UN-VERBOSE I AM. MOVING ON.
Sarah 6.0: …What are your pet peeves? The tl:dr version please. (F: THE IRONY. I had to Google what tldr was… no comment. ACTUALLY here’s my comment: EVERYTHING I SAY is probably marked tldr by someone out there. XD )
Sarah 7.0: Well. I hate Mexicans, burritos, tacos, books, Faith
Sarah 6.0: –
Sarah 7.0: Hm? Was it something I said?
Sarah 6.0: Wha- How- Why- HOW DO YOU HATE BURRITOS? And what did them Mexicans do to you? Sarah, I swear, if you have been reincarnated as some racist Donald Trump supporter, I will end my life (and yours) with my BARE HANDS! I mean, you can’t just go and say that on a blog? What would your mother think? Honestly, I’m so disa-
Sarah 7.0: I WAS JOKING! (F: Dude. Girl. Sarah. Whatever your name even is. You don’t joke about that stuff. YOU DON’T JOKE ABOUT HATING BOOKS. Off limitos. Oh yeah, and there’s me. Don’t hate me.)
Sarah 7.0: Jeez, I was just trying to keep you guys on your toes…
Sarah 6.0: -_- *sighs* Just answer the question already.
Sarah 7.0: I hate bent book covers, winter coats, weather above 25 degrees (CELSIUS XD ), School, and Faith. I wasn’t joking about that 😉 aaaaaaaaaand racial profiling.
Sarah 6.0: Wait, why do you hate racial profiling? (F: Buuuuuuuut you don’t mention why you hate Faith. Right. Or left because I’m left handed. Just curious, who’s left handed out there?? * raises left hand *)
Sarah 7.0: Before I wore my head scarf, people would take turns guessing where I’m from. Like I’d get every country on that map (oddly enough, except where I’m actually from). UK, Australia, Russia, Brazil, South Africa, Chile, Morocco, Spain, India… you name it, somebodies guessed it (excluding Japan, and China – I have been asked if I’m half Korean). People would look at my hair and ask me if I was half- insert ethnicity here. It was pretty annoying after the first time. Though, now I only deal with TSA/Airport security checks every single time I fly internationally. #arabgirlproblems
Sarah 6.0:.. So where are you from?
Sarah 7.0: Egypt. You know, just in case I haven’t mentioned it a billion times already.
Sarah 6.0: Ohhhh, so can you speak Egyptian? (F: HAH. I can. Pyramids, sphinxes, desert, murderous heat – am I an honorary Egyptian yet???)
Do you mean Arabic?
Sarah 6.0: Wait, so Egyptian isn’t a thing?
Sarah 7.0: No, and no one but Egyptologists can read ancient hieroglyphs. I’m sorry if I’ve disappointed. I can, however, read to you in a nice french accent and talk to you in Egyptian slang…
Sarah 6.0: Hold your shade, girl… no one sasses me.
Sarah 7.0: Can we just continue with the questions before this post deteriorates even more? (F: Too late.)
Sarah 6.0: What are your favourite things?
Sarah 7.0: … Can you be more specific? Favourite books? Movies? Shows? Colours? Foods? Murder Methods? (F: Short and easy answer to regain our friendship = Faith)
Sarah 6.0: … Do you have any siblings?
Sarah 7.0: Yes. Them-Three-Who-Shalt-Not-Be-Named. (F: Name suggestions for hidden identities: Thing 1, 2, and 3? Is that mean? It’s definitely not median or mode, though. I think it’s kinda cute and hilarious. DR. SEUSS YA KNOW??)
Sarah 6.0: Why must they not be named?
Sarah 7.0: Do you want to read lines of blacked out names? Cuz we all got five names. And they already stalk the blog enough as it is. I don’t need to give them more fodder. (F: Huh, they read our blog? Shoot. WHY?! They’re going to be reading some misconceived ideas about me… I’M NOT ABSOLUTELY CRAZY AND I DON’T SHOUT ALL THE TIME! Though I just did.)
Sarah 6.0: I see you have a … very loving relationship.
Savages. We are so cruel to each other it’s actually pretty funny.
Sarah 7.0: Do you want to hear about the time we wrecked-
Sarah 6.0: – OKAY. It’s Sarah’s bed time, so GOOD DAY AND NIGHT FOLKS! We sure hoped you enjoyed this utterly random post: be sure to check out Becca’s original post.
Sarah 7.0: MMMH HMM MHMM HHMH MMMMM
We, Sarah & Faith, have decided to answer Bookidote‘s questions for the Infinity Dreams Award! Merci for the tag! 🙂
This week, I am taking over Sublime Fridays by reviewing a piece of text like all book bloggers do. This post was originally for World Poetry Day a few days ago but since I had missed it, I am now gracing your presence with a poem we’ve all been absolutely looking forward to. But there’s a slight difference: it’s a top notch piece of literature written by yours truly… when I was six.
(S: Is it weird that my first reaction to this idea was :YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS)
Hello and welcome! It is I, Faith, and I have returned with another dose of cuteness! This time, I am featuring these little Donut Wisdom drawings… They’re encouraging, adorable, and punny and I am pretty sure that you’ll love them as much as I do!
They’re illustrated by Mimi Chao and if you’re finding yourself falling in love with them within seconds, as I did, I’d definitely suggest that you visit her Instagram and Donut Wisdom site for more! While you’re at it, you might as well check out her shop and her WordPress blog for her other über cute prints and to support an indie creator/illustrator! (Whoo, links galore! But I’m sure you’ll be very tempted to click all of them by the end.)
If you’re not familiar with my Cuteness Overload posts, you could drop by my first one right here if you’re feeling up for it! No pressure though, I’m sure the Earth’s atmosphere already offers you enough.
Anyways, let’s cut to the chase. If you are feeling a bit blue, allow these cute little donuts to share some wisdom and smiles. 🙂
I recently found out about these cute new Sanrio food characters named Kirimi-chan and Gudetama… One’s a salmon fillet and one’s an egg. Surprise? Anyways I find them immensely adorable so here’s a spontaneous meme-ish thing. We’re totally all about everything cute. Also, why not? Everyone needs their weekly dose of cuteness anyways & I’m here to do exactly that! 🙂 OK I’ll stop talking er… typing. Enjoy!
Oh, it’s the end. You’re totally done for. No worries! Here are some personal tips to know before your long awaited reading session or handy things to keep close by to be sure you’ll be extra comfy as you snuggle up with your book!
I’m not sure about anyone else, but I know that I always feel more comfortable when my room is clean (or at least cleaner) and freshly decorated! First, you should find a comfy and quiet spot to read; for most of us, that could mean a bean bag chair/a pile of pillows in a room. If you share a room with
unfortunately a sibling, find a spot where you can relax such as the couch but if you really don’t have anywhere in particular at your home, the public library offers some quietness too. If you feel that you know the theme of the book you’re currently reading pretty well, you could incorporate some themed decorations into your room! So if you have any book posters for the book, you could bring those out and even make some book themed DIYs to amp up the room setting! Maybe you can even bring out those festive fairy lights to have on while you flip through your book (which is basically a tumblr type setting but if it’s your kind of thing, “You go, Glen Coco!”).
Sarah: Hehe… Personally, I’ve never blogged before. Ever.
So I’ve been blogging for three days now.
Faith: Yep I’ve book blogged for the same amount of time as Sarah… quite obviously I’d think 😛
Faith: What?! Sarah are you trying to bind me to a lifetime commitment without my approval? Um why don’t you just continue this whole thing by yourself right n- I’m kidding. I’d like to think that we’ll be doing this as long as we want to/at least able to which probably (hopefully) translates to never.
Sarah: About blogging? Getting to hang out with like minded people, as well as just putting your thoughts and feelings out there.
Faith: I just like to express my book obsessions & reflections through blogging and it’s cool how other people can understand your book struggles for things like waiting A MILLENNIUM for the next installment in a series. Meeting new book friends, I always find, is super great!!!
