A piece of advice for my followers: in all your life adventures, don’t forget to take care of yourself FIRST along the way - no matter how important someone else may seem. always put yourself first.

+ wanderlustlights

oh thank you for sending these :3

5. What does your URL mean?

it’s the ship name for mercedes and rachel from glee. the reason it’s my URL is because ~2 years ago, when i joined my first glee rp as mercedes, i was really close with the girl who rped as rachel, and during one of our crazy nights chatting, it became a thing. and it’s stuck. :)

6. Reason you joined tumblr?

i think i joined in dec 2011, and i don’t remember why exactly i joined. i think i saw that some of my friends had it, and so i got one. but i didn’t figure out how to use it/start using it frequently till a few months later. no specific reason

7. Do you have any nicknames?

i do! rach is a common one, but my family often calls me “bug,” “bugs,” or “bug-a-boo” - a nickname i got as a baby from my dad, because i was his little cuddle bug.

9. Kissed in the rain?

i have! my little london fling was full of a lot of sickeningly cute shit like that.

18. Have you ever fallen asleep in someones arms?

i have. tbh i do miss the feeling of falling asleep with someone like this. it’s just.. comforting.

27. First thing you notice to a guy/girl?

i don’t think there’s one specific thing, but usually it’s eyes, smile, hair, or laugh. those tend to be the things i gravitate toward initially, i guess

36.Occupations you wanted to be when you were a kid?

i went through my phase of wanting to be a famous singer (like my lifetime idol, britney spears), as all kids do. but i’ve also wanted to be a doctor since i was really young, which has stuck ;)

37. Do you believe in ghosts?

tbh i’m not really sure if i do. i think on most days i want to believe in them, and when i was younger i definitely did, but now i’m not so sure.

43. Do you want to get married?

i know a lot of people say it’s overrated, especially in my generation, but i do want to get married. it’s not like, one of the biggest dreams i have - i haven’t planned out my perfect wedding or anything like that, and i don’t really have that “vision” right now. and i don’t want to until much further in my future. but i do still want to, when i’m ready and if i meet the right person.

HI RACHEL I'M BORED AND SO ARE YOU so.... everything with a 6!

Hi dear! Let's play a game with those asks. Calla Lily, Tulip and Daisy if you please :)
+ calligraphyink

Hi, gorgeous!! Thanks for sending me some! 

Calla Lily: If you died right now, what song would you want to play at your funeral?

I have literally never thought of this tbh, but the only thing that comes to mind is “I Will Remember You” by Ryan Cabrera. Or even “Have Faith In My” by A Day To Remember. I’d have to think about this one though haha

Tulip: For your birthday, what kind of cake do you ask for?

I really love Cold Stone cookie dough ice cream cake w/ red velvet instead of yellow (i made a lot of these when I worked there, I got this shit down). Or if I were to do a custom ice cream cake, red velvet cake w/ cake batter ice cream and graham crackers and reese’s mixed in. 

But since I never get the ice cream cakes, I usually ask for red velvet w/ cream cheese frosting, or marble with buttercream.

Daisy: How old were you when you had your first kiss?

Let’s see… I was 18, and it was a New Year’s kiss, haha!

all dem numbas
+ solohans



A number of reasons. I was leaving the country, and I didn’t want to try long distance bc he was moving faster than I was (emotionally).


I have a ton, but right now, I would say Fall Out Boy & Panic! At The Disco


The last serious crush I have had is on this really awesome girl that I’ve mutually followed on Tumblr for quite a few years now, but I don’t think she’s interested? So I’m trying to deal with that haha.


My depression during high school, for sure. My mom was in a seriously abusive relationship, and she was also addicted to her pain medicine she took for her arthritis and started abusing it. It took a huge toll on our relationship and on my mental health. I ended up missing more than 3 months of school my senior year. It’s a miracle I graduated and made it to college tbh.

+ littlemiss-falloutboy

ooh, thank you! sorry i’m answering them a day late, i totally passed out last night before i saw this :P

2. What color underwear/boxers wearing now?


17. Favorite Holiday?

hmmm… i’d have to say christmas because i get to see a lot of my family (which is nice because i’m so often away for school), or 4th of july for the parties haha!

24. Hugs or Kisses?

this is a toughie. i’ve been told i give the hugs and that my hugs have made people’s day (i have a friend in utah whose favorite part of the summer is our first hug after my flight in lol). but honestly, a passionate kiss will win me over any day. there are so many subtle variations from kiss to kiss that make it exciting every time, and i just really enjoy the intimacy and charged tension of it all.

34. Butter, Plain or Salted popcorn?

buttered and with black pepper (sometimes parmesan cheese!)

38. Favorite flower?

huh, i’ve never really thought about this one. i really like cherry blossoms, orchids, and roses (classic haha)

49. Do you have a tattoo?

not yet, though i have a few that i’ve wanted to get for years! i want to get a rocky horror tattoo that for sure has the phrase “don’t dream it, be it” (the concept i am open to, though i would love to incorporate the lips). i also want to get the deathly hallows symbol. there are a few other ideas, too, but those are the big ones that i’ve wanted for the longest.

oooh, thank you for sending these! 

5. If you were drunk would the person you like take care of you?

Well, the person I like is very caring and kind; I’d like to think that she would take care of me if I were drunk to the point of needing it, lol. 

12. What are your 5 favorite songs right now?

Drunk in Love by Beyonce, Pompeii by Bastille, Nicotine by Panic! At The Disco, Young Volcanoes by Fall Out Boy, Flawless by Beyonce
(idk there’s a lot of them these are just the first that popped into my head tbh)

22. Where would you like to travel?

For places I’ve never been, I would love to travel throughout south america. For places I’d love to return to, London is always on the top of that list. 

66. Do you like your tumblr friends more than your real friends?

I don’t favor one group over the other. Some of my real friends are tumblr friends, and I don’t really “rank” my friendships in such a way.

75. Favourite animal?

Lately, I have been loving dogs. Those pugs and french bull dogs, doe :3
