Top 5 Wednesday | Top 5 Fictional Jobs I’d Want to Have (1st March ’17)

Hey there everyone~ So, it’s March! I didn’t realize it was already March. Anyways, I missed last week’s topic, but I can’t miss this one! Because, one, this topic is so good! I really love it.

First of all, the usual spiel. Top 5 Wednesday is a discussion group is Goodreads, made by Lainey, and is now moderated by Sam. This week’s topic is Top 5 Fictional Jobs I’d Want to Have. I’m sure I don’t have to explain that one anymore.

Without further ado…


1. High Warlock

8643ac25f8e860ab1e331c3cfebda6bd

I think I would love being a high warlock like Magnus. I like that it makes me feel needed (haha), like when Shadowhunters need someone to open up Portals for them, and being a high warlock will give me the power that normal warlocks don’t have. Unless, you’re someone like Catarina, I guess. But what I love about being a warlock most of all is MAGIC! xD

The only downside is the politics. I really hate politics.

 

 

 

 

2. Magizoologist

rehost_2016_11_14_fd185d6f-90a3-4166-acfc-bf812398dd63I think I would love this job. If the real me pursue this job, I will probably make a mess, or die but I’m ignoring that and just do things I like…so there. I really love the magical creatures in the Harry Potter world, so I know I would really enjoy this job.

Plus, did I mention I love magic? ๐Ÿ˜€

 

3. Kingsman Field Agent (or Merlin’s position)

kingsman-secret-service-trailer-breakdown-11

Again, I will probably, most definitely, will die if I become a field agent. But I love the adrenaline rush. Or well, I love the second hand adrenaline rush (so just imagine if I could really feel that rush).

But of course, I can’t in real life because I’m too scared, too paranoid, has too much anxieties, too nervous etc. I mean, I’m even scared of heights, so yeah.

4. Q (Quartermaster)

b23_03608_r_post

I don’t know why I love jobs that real life me will probably die if I ever get that job. But anyways, yes, I will probably die taking this job because, working at MI6…imagine if it’s under attack? And I will probably crumble too because of all the pressure. But I love this job too, because well, the adrenaline rush, and you know, people need me. Plus, the power (hahaha).

5. Patissiere/ Baker

20161207_143932

I love baking, I really do! Having my own bakery is one of my dreams, which is why I would so love it if I get to have Jacob’s job. Or even Lola’s dads’ job (from Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins). Even if theirs are limited to pies.


So, those are five of my favourite fictional jobs…or at least the ones that I could think of at the moment. The jobs I listed are in no particular order.

So, is there any jobs here that you fancy too? What are your favourite fictional jobs? I would love to here from all of you ๐Ÿ™‚

30 Days Blog Challenge: Dinner Guests (Day 6)

day-6-dinner-guests

In this post, I’m supposed to list ten people I will want to invite to my hypothetical dinner party. They can be fictional characters, historical figures, people in my life…anyone. But I am just going to stick with fictional characters ๐Ÿ˜€

So, aside from characters that I want to meet (because it’s my dinner party, so of course I’ll meet them <3), other things I’ll think about when choosing are characters that I want to feed. Because dinner party… If I’m hosting at home, I will definitely cook all the meals myself. And I think I’ve mentioned it a couple of times, but I love to feed people.

So… let’s start.

Top 5 Wednesday: Characters You’d Want as Family (7th Sept ’16)

Hi guys! This is Top 5 Wednesday, a discussion on Goodreads, which was created by Lainey, and currently maintained by Sam. This week’s topic is Characters I’d want as a family. It can be in general, or it can be very specific.


1.

0046debdc07d8f89135b783087b0289a
Luke Garroway (Lucian Graymark) from the Mortal Instruments Series

I would love to have Luke as my uncle. He’d be a very cool uncle, who gives pretty good advices. I think. And a bonus point of having him as an uncle is that I can spend my time in his bookstore. How cool is that? ๐Ÿ˜€

2.

603615ad5555bfbbf561103094e903ef
Alec Lightwood from the Mortal Instruments Series

If I have an older brother, I would want it to be Alec. He’s responsible, he’s sassy, and he’s a mother hen sometimes. I think it would be nice to have someone like him.

3.

RemusLupin_WB_F3_LupinLookingConcernedInHisOffice_Still_080615_Land

Remus Lupin from Harry Potter series

He could be my distant older cousin, who is always quiet but always there to help me study.

4.

Isabelle Lightwood

I think Izzy would make a cool sister. Older sister, since she’s born in 1991, and I’m born in 1992. She would probably drive me crazy sometimes, but I think she can make a difference in my life. As in, making me socialize more. I think, because she’s Izzy, she can make me go out to parties or gatherings and meet new people and make new friends (Unless I get an anxiety attack).

5.

lola-boy-next-door
Lola and her dad (the one that bakes) from Lola and the Boy Next Door

It would be so cool if Lola’s dad (the one that bakes) is my uncle. Seriously, I will go to their house everyday so that I can bake with him everyday. Another cool thing is that Lola can be my cousin, my COOL cousin. She can make me cute outfits ๐Ÿ˜€


So, that is all from me. What do you think of my list? Comment below to tell me what you think. ๐Ÿ˜€

February 2016 Wrap-up

Hi there~ If you’ve read my previous post, you would know that I have not been doing a lot of reading in February. Or more specifically, I did not read a lot of books. I mean, I do read day and night, just most of the time, what I read was fanfictions. Yup.

When I woke up on February 1st, I heard a sound that made me so so happy, although it usually annoys me. Yes, I woke up to the sound of notifications on my phone, coming one after another. That’s what happened when you don’t have Wifi or 3g data for awhile. But yes, because I have unlimited WiFi again, I ended up reading fanfictions 24/7, or catch up with the latest season of Criminal Minds and NCIS.

Ooops, I got sidetracked.

The books I’ve read in February could easily be counted on one hand.

Every time I see these books, it always made me wonder why I didn’t read earlier. I know why, it was just a rhetorical question. Anyways, I’m not going to ramble much about these two books since i’m sure I’ve talked about it a lot in my earlier February posts. And I’ve also written reviews for this, although it’s not finished yet. I was procrastinating.

51+ftrHvxLL._SX320_BO1,204,203,200_

It has been a few weeks since the last Katie Fforde book I read, so I thought it would be fine for me to read another one, as long as I don’t binge-read them. Yes, I had to stop myself from grabbing a new Katie Fforde book after I was done with this.

I requested these two books on Netgalley on the 28th of February, and I was so glad that my request was approved the next day. I read both books in one sitting.

And so, that’s all the books that I’ve read in the month of February. In between that, I’ve read tons of fanfictions, mostly The Avengers fanfictions, Teen Wolf, James Bond, Buffy the Vampire Slayers crossovers, and others. Lately, I don’t read much Mortal Instruments fanfictions, although Mortal Instruments fanfictions is all I write about.

That’s all from me for now. I will probably post my March TBR soon, after I decide what I want to read.

Thank you for reading ๐Ÿ™‚

Chapter Break Bingo February 2016

Hi there. So… I have unlimited WiFi again since the beginning of February, and that’s both good and bad. Good news is, I can post and read fanfics again day and night, marathon my favourite TV shows, and hang out on Tumblr. Bad news is, I get distracted and therefore, the books I read in February can be counted on one hand. Sad, I know.
