Q&A post: you supply the Qs, I supply the As (that sounds weird, never mind) - everything you NEVER wanted to know about yours truly

Hey guys, so you probably remember that about a week ago I asked you all to send in questions for me to answer. And WOW you did not disappoint. I got 22 questions!!! Seriously! I thought I was going to get about ten, if I was lucky! Thank you so much for your great questions, guys! I really enjoyed answering them. Anyway, here are my answers:

From Anidori-Kiladra Talianna Isilee:

1.Favorite Color?

Well, considering I blogged under the name Indigo for nearly a year, I’ll let you guess what my favourite colour is… XP I also like purples and dark greens and blues, and I like black.

2. Chocolate Milk? Aye or Nay?

Um how about yes please?? I like anything with chocolate in it. Chocolate is awesome, okay. I read a quote that went, “Save the Earth, it’s the only planet with chocolate” and like, I 100% agree with whoever said that.

3. Favorite Food to snack on?

Is it weird that I don’t really snack that much?? Because a lot of people seem to think it is. I’m just not usually hungry between mea…

The "Sunday Currently" + Q&A requests

Hey guys! First, I just want to say that I'm not going to be blogging as Indigo anymore. I don't know... I created the Indigo persona for this blog almost a year ago and I just feel like I've outgrown it. I'm not the same person I was when I started this blog, not even close; I've grown so much. And I feel that sometimes, while I'm writing as Indigo, I'm not really being myself; I'm slightly pretending to someone else, some cool blogger girl who isn't really me...

I've realised that I want to be more honest with my readers, more open about who I am. And I feel like a good way to start that would be to tell you my real name. It's Andrea, pronounced An-drey-ah, by the way. None of that An-dree-ah business, please. If you ever meet me in real life, make sure you pronounce my name right, unless you want to really piss me off. And believe me, you do not want to piss me off. I might grin awkwardly at you and five hours later come up with ways to g…

"Waiting For You" // Poem

You know, I've been thinking

And I realised I've lost count

Of how many years it's been since you left

It's been that long

I remember that midwinter's morning

When you told me you had to leave

I said goodbye to you in the falling snow

And you didn't tell me you were coming back

You didn't promise me anything

Though before you turned away

I thought I saw

A look in your eyes

An unspoken vow that you'd return

Though maybe I was mistaken

Maybe I imagined it

Maybe there was no look, no vow

And you never intended to come back at all

But I waited for you

As the days turned into weeks

And the weeks turned into months

And the months turned into years

But you know, I've had a great life

I've seen empires rise and fall

I've lived through things most wouldn't even imagine

But through it all

I always thought

About what it would be like if you were by my side

If you'd only returned

But the years turned into decades

And the decades turned into cent…

Indigo's Monthly Writing Challenge: November

Hey guys, it's time for the November edition of my Monthly Writing Challenge! (Actually on time for once...) Can you believe it's already November?! Erm, hello? 2017? Can you hear me? WHY THE HELL ARE YOU GOING BY SO QUICKLY?!?! Like I swear it was September a few days ago?? Where has October gone? Can someone bring it back, please?

No, I swear, this year is going by waaaayyyy too quickly. Is there like a stop button or something I can press to make time go by a little slower.

Anyway, I hope you all had a spook-tacular Halloween yesterday! I didn't really do much, just stayed at home and opened the door to trick-or-treaters. (We get a LOT in our neighbourhood. I swear I was running to and from the door non-stop for about two hours. Halloween: the most exhausting night of the year.) I dressed up as a wizard, this was my costume:

My mum made the cape and part of the hat, and I wore make-up for literally the first time in a year. The most frightening part of the day was havin…
