as this is quite a subjective question and it could range, i've come up with a few questions, you could of course add extra info! i encourage everyone to try this out and have a fun go haha :)

1) if you could apply for any job successfully what would it be?
2) would you rather live in a sunny or cold place?
3) if you could be a writer, what genre would you specialise in?
4) if you could try out any job for a day to see if you like it, what would it be?
5) out of all book characters who would you choose to be your 1) partner, 2) sibling, and 3) child?

sorry that some of those were completely random but i hope you have fun!! <3

for me i would choose:

1) an actress! i would also love to adapt books into tv show screenplays (i would love to do 'eleanor and park' or 'miss peregrine's home for peculiar children')
2) cold. not mega cold but kinda mild and rarely warm enough to not have to bring out an emergency coat (like england i guess...)
3) i would do political / feminist stuff - a lot of non-fiction but some fiction too (kinda like 1984)
4) environmentalist. that's what i want to be (i would love to be an actress but it's easy to fail at that an i need a backup, safe plan haha), but i'm not even sure what you actually do!
5) partner - newt (maze runner)
sibling - josephine march (little women)
child - azriel (a court of thorns and roses)

and that's it i guess haha!

You sound like such a cool person! I hope you'll succeed your big plans:) maybe you'll be the new greta thunberg, who knows..

Inger999 | 37 comments for me it would be:
1 architect, i'd love to draw and create houses! Or I'd like to be a neuroscientist (that just fascinates me so much)
2 A bit of both,
3 I would specialize in fantasy, it would be so wonderful to create your own whole world, if I were only able to.
4 A doctor, I'm so interested in what it would be like to be a doctor just for one day. This has a little to do with my Greys Anatomy obsession haha (anyone watching it??) I don't aspire to be one but I'd just like to have the experience:)
5 1 Partner: Laurie (little women)/ Achilles
2 Sibling: Samwise Gamgee <3 (lotr)
3 child: no idea

message 18: by Raynah (new)

Raynah | 49 comments 1) If I could, I would apply to be a psychologist. I have always been interesting in mental health and being able to help people better themselves. Realistically, this career would be too schooling for me.
2) A bit of both. I like the cold but I wouldn't want to only live where it's cold, same goes for a sunny place.
3) I think I would like to specialize in fantasy, thrillers, or historical fiction. I can't choose just one, I would have to try them all out first before choosing.
4) I would like to try out something in film production. I'm not interested in a career in this field, but I think it would be a fascinating experience to be able to see how films are made.
5) For a partner, Thomas Cresswell. For a sibling, Nina Zenik, and for a child, Simon Snow.

1) if you could apply for any job successfully what would it be?
To be able to be a researcher or engineer for something amazing like CERN or NASA or Google (or even a little company that's just as cool)

2) would you rather live in a sunny or cold place?
sunny all the way! I freeze every winter in australia i don't how I'd even handle a 'real' winter lol

3) if you could be a writer, what genre would you specialise in?
hmm, I'm not really into writing fiction but I love writing essays in physics and history so I guess my genre would be research papers

4) if you could try out any job for a day to see if you like it, what would it be?
this is kinda random but it'd be cool to be a postman in a small town for a day just to meet all the kinds of people.

5) out of all book characters who would you choose to be your 1) partner, 2) sibling, and 3) child?
omg idk?? I dont really get attached to characters rather than the whole book lol
