I'M APRIL, AMA

Honestly, I'm so honored to have a request from @boygirlparty I'm a huge fan! The notebook you illustrated has been a trusty companion of mine for many years! Anyways, here's some stuff about me.
  1. I'm starting my second year of college in the fall
    I'm studying speech-language pathology with a creative writing minor at the University of Pittsburgh
  2. Some of you may have seen my last list (WHAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT BEING BIRACIAL) and know that I'm biracial
    My dad comes from a Swiss Amish background and my mom is from Taiwan. Here they are being adorable.
  3. Here's my wonderful multicultural family looking cute in our matching pajamas
    For some reason my brothers and I have to look hideous in all family photos
  4. I have two older brothers
    This picture (taken about 5 years ago) pretty much captures our relationship
  5. I went to a creative and performing arts school for 7 years (6th-12th grade)
    I majored in creative writing and had a beautiful writing family (including @madeline_dora and @lactoseintolerance) that I miss dearly. This is us at graduation.
  6. I love books and coffee and dogs
  7. That's all I can think of at the moment! Not sure if anyone will ask me questions, but if you happen to be reading this and want to ask me something, go for it!

  9. what was the hardest you've ever worked on something you wrote? (what was it about and what was your process like?)
    Suggested by   @boygirlparty
  10. @boygirlparty I wrote a 30-40 page short story in my last year of high school
    It was about a man living in a world where men were oppressed the way women are in our world. It was really important to me and I hope to expand on it someday.
  11. what are a few things you do every day that other people wouldn't expect to know about you?
    Suggested by   @boygirlparty
  12. @boygirlparty Ummmm I guess I spend a lot of time making my bangs look good and covering up my acne
    I think most people who know me wouldn't take me for the kind of girl who spends a lot of time on her appearance, not that that even IS a type of girl
  13. if someone was going to give you a gift, you'd want _____________
    Suggested by   @boygirlparty
  14. @boygirlparty STATIONERY
    I love me some notebooks and pens
  15. are you wearing a university style sweatshirt reading coffee and where can I get such a thing
    Suggested by   @boygirlparty
  16. My friend got it for me for my birthday, so I'm not sure where it came from. I would try etsy, though.
  17. favorite books?
    Suggested by   @boygirlparty
  18. @boygirlparty Right now my favorite is Beloved by Toni Morrison
    I also love Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer (pictured above)
  19. If you were a coffee drink, what would you be?? ☕️☕️☕️
    I am also wearing a COFFEE shirt right now 😂

  20. @bettyturbo I'm gonna say latte
    Quiet, understated, reliable, sometimes too frothy, sometimes too bitter, sometimes just right
  21. Do you feel that there is a significant disconnect between how you perceive yourself and how others perceive you?
    Suggested by   @Melodie
  22. @Melodie I think everyone perceives themselves differently than everyone else does. It's impossible to know everything about someone unless you are that person.
    Personally, I'm a very reserved person, so most people's first impression of me is distorted by how quiet I am.
