So I actually didn’t go to College, for one one thing Australia has more University’s than Colleges, I guess you could consider them the same thing? But just saying. Also I did my Diploma online, so I never had the actual Uni experience. I was tagged by the creators of this tag Dawlyn & Krista @Little Blind Book Finds! Be sure to go and check their blog out!
1. Give credit to the creator of the tag!
2. Answer the questions to the best of your ability! You don’t have to be in college or have gone to college to answer these!
3. Tag three people to complete the tag.
Roommates can be a hit or miss experience freshman year, especially when you don’t get the opportunity to pick who you room with. Name a character you’d love to be roommates with and one you’d hate to be roommates with.
My first thought for someone I would love to be roommates with was Rose from Vampire Academy. And I don’t really know about someone I would hate to be roommates with, maybe Nesta from the ACOTAR series she is just always so serious, moody and acts like she has no emotion, which would start to piss me off after a while as i’m the chatty, laughing and sarcastic person and that just wouldn’t work out.
Before your freshman year officially begins, you typically go to an orientation to familiarize yourself with the campus. Orientation can be both exciting and scary as you’re experiencing something new. Name a book that you read to experience a new genre, or to familiarize yourself with a topic you knew nothing about. Did you like the book? What did you learn from it?
Well I read Maus by Art Spiegelman and it was my first Graphic Novel. I wanted to try and read a Graphic Novel and seen as I love Historical Fiction I decided to choose a Historical Fiction Graphic Novel and really loved it! It was so interesting.
It is normal to experience homesickness at some point after moving away from home for the first time. Name a book from your childhood that you love so much that you sometimes miss, and may even find yourself rereading it often.
I honestly didn’t read that much as a kid, so I have no answer for this.
Choosing a major is something every college student has to do at some point, but many students choose their freshman year. Hopefully your major is something you are passionate about. Name a book that you have read about a topic you are passionate about, or a character from a book that shares a similar passion as you.
I haven’t read a book about a topic I am really passionate about. Not really anyway, I have read LGBT books, which I guess is a topic I’m ‘passionate’ about being biseuxal myself. However none of the LGBT+ books I have read have been about the discrimination side of it or about the legalisation (as in Aus same sex marriage is still not legal).
Joining different clubs and groups can often be an exciting thing to jump into as a freshman for some, and nerve-wracking for others. Name a popular book or book series that you didn’t think you’d enjoy, but ended up loving.
I don’t generally read books that I don’t think I will like, so its usually the other way around.
As a college freshman and a college student in general, all-nighters are pretty common. Name one book that was so good, you stayed up all night reading it.
Well not all night, but later than usual, the last one was Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
Speaking of those all-nighters, they usually have something to do with that assignment you put off until the last minute. Name a popular book or book series that you put off reading for way too long.
There is still heaps of popular series I need to get to. I would have to say Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, I haven’t finished the series but I have finally started it.
You may or may not have experienced a hangover… or 10 during your freshman year in college. Name a book that left you with a book hangover after you finished it.
I am yet to have a book put me in a legitimate book hangover. I always write my book reviews straight after finishing a book, and I find that by writing my review I get everything out and then I’m ready to move on.
Freshman year, you usually learn what it means to be a broke college student. Name a book that you remember buying even though you were tight on cash, because you just had to have it.
The 20th Anniversary Gryffindor editions (paperback & Hardcover) of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. I couldn’t pass on that.
General ed courses are typically all you take freshman year, and English is usually one of them. (Depending on the prof that could be a good thing 😉 ) Name a required reading book that you loved. (it can be middle/high school or college)
In High School I read Tomorrow When the War Began and really enjoyed it!
Part of being a broke college student is trying to find the cheapest way to buy a textbook. To make it worse, some freshman gen ed courses end up having no use for the book at all. Name a book that you spent money on and ended up not liking.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Find my review HERE if you want to know more!
All professors have office hours, and often times students don’t take advantage of them. Advice for freshman: go to office hours! It is a good idea to get to know your professors. Making connections with them can lead to great tips on assignments, internship opportunities, and job connections. Name a book (autobiography or biography) that you read to get to know more about someone you are interested in.
There’s always that one professor that no one likes, especially in freshman gen ed courses. Name a villain or any character you disliked, that you would hate to have as a professor.
Umbridge! I know she was a teacher in HP, but would still hate it!
Sometimes It gets to the midpoint of the semester and you can’t take any more of a particular class, and decide to drop it. Name a book or author you thought you’d enjoy reading but ended up not liking.
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
I learned so many life lessons my freshman year of college. The experience made me learn so much about myself that I didn’t realize. Name a book that has made you reflect on life.
Honestly none really.
Because I’ll be doing them every Sunday, I am only going to tag 2 people in each so I’m not tagging the same people all the time! So each week I will tag my latest 2 followers! These will also be only followers that I follow back as well as there is no point in tagging someone I don’t follow.
