Got Assumptions? | Your Q’s and my A’s

Salmon New Year Goals Facebook Post

Earlier this week I asked you guys to leave me assumptions and boy did some of you have some good guesses!

This is really fun to do so maybe I’ll have a Q&A later this summer.

Diamond’s questions:

  • You want to get married within the next ten years

I would like to get married within the next ten years, yes! Not until after college though.

  • You like Star Wars, but prefer Marvel

I actually like Star Wars more than Marvel, but honestly I am not super familiar with either of them. My favorite Marvel character is Spider-Man, but for the majority of superheroes I really could not tell you who is Marvel and who is DC. ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • Your personality is a ESFP

I am actually a ENFP (I think . . . I haven’t taken that test in quite some time).

  • You want to travel abroad for at least a year

I would LOVE to travel abroad for a year . . . I almost went on a two-week exchange over spring break but I wound up dropping the trip – which was a smart decision on my part because obviously it got cancelled anyway. We were supposed to go to Martinique, which is a French-speaking island in the Caribbean.

Grace’s questions:

  • Your real name is Christina Claire

Oddly specific – but no ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • You’re an enneagram one

I am an enneagram one! Good guess! (Enneagram ones are “moral perfectionists” or “reformers” – if you don’t know what an enneagram is, click here to learn more.)

  • You absolutely love books and having a schedule

Correct . . . and also correct ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • You hate lavender

Hahaha this is so random. I don’t care for the smell of lavender, no – but even if I did, I’m allergic to it so it’s not a good idea to have in my house anyway.

  • You’re about 17

Ahhh, I was waiting for someone to guess my age! I’m not 17, but you are not far off ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • You love dogs

I do love dogs. I have four of them!

  • You really really like your boyfriend and potentially would like to marry him one day, maybe when you’re in college or close to graduating college

Again this is so specific I love it ๐Ÿ˜‚ย No comment . . . excpet I will say I don’t intend to get married until after I graduate.

  • Your favorite candy is Swedish Fish

I like Swedish Fish a lot! They’re not my favorite, but one of my top five for sure.

  • You really really want to travel more with your BFF

For sure! That’s a dream of mine.

Natalie’s questions:

  • Your favorite ice cream flavor is pistachio

I do like pistachio ice cream, yes. However, my favorite is mint chip!

  • You wear your hair down most of the time, but put it up in a ponytail for skiing and such

Correct! I wear my hair down unless it needs to be washed or it’s really hot, or if I’m doing something athletic – such as skiing!

  • You like baking

I love baking. Baking makes me exhausted so I can only bake one thing at a time, but it’s really rewarding (and delicious!)

Ashlynn’s questions:

(More like facts tbh because she knows me in real life.)

  • You recently officially changed the spelling of your real name

I did do that! My name was spelled one way until I was twelve, when I decided to change it. I’ve always disliked the way my name was spelled and changed it to something I like a lot more. I dealed with correcting the spelling a lot for friends and teachers and a couple of months ago my mom surprised me with a brand-new birth certificate. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • You know too many languages

Haha I do . . . I almost-fluently speak French and ASL, and I’m learning Spanish and Russian.

  • You have two middle names

I do. ๐Ÿ˜

  • You love whipped coffee

So I’ve only made this once but I do love it and I’m going to make it again tomorrow ahaha.

  • You and your boy are very cute together

Again, no comment . . . you guys.ย ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

  • You are beautiful

Awww wow I love you. ๐Ÿ’›

  • There are a lot of animals in your house like silly frogs

Um yes there are. We have four dogs, one bunny, chickens, and yes, my brother has a frog (and a few fish too).

That is all the questions I have for today! Thanks to everyone who guessed. I hope y’all are enjoying your weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

XOXO,

Morgan

 

Got Assumptions? | How Much Do You Think You Know?

Salmon New Year Goals Facebook Post

This post idea literallyย justย popped into my brain and I thought, wow, I know I just posted two days ago, but wouldn’t this be fun to do? I’ve seen this around the blogosphere (I think Mary did one too) and thought I would jump on the bandwagon.

I blog anonymously, of course, but I do talk about my personal life quite a bit (after all, this is a personal blog . . .) But the question is, based on the information you guys have gathered over the last year, what do you think you know about Morgan McCartie?

I’m genuinely very curious.

So ask away! What do you think my real name is? My age? Things I like and dislike? It can literally be anything, guys. I may not be able to give you an honest answer for privacy reasons, but you are welcome to try. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I can’t wait to see what y’all think about me! I’ll post your questions and my answers later this week/early next week, depending on how quickly I get responses.

XOXO,

Morgan

Quarantine Room Tour | I’m Bored

Travel Vlog YouTube Thumbnail

Finally! The post I have been waiting to do since I started my doll blog – which I didn’t do on that site for obvious reasons. Mini room tours only, please.

Now that our schools have shut down for the time being (#quarantinelife), I have wayyyy too much time on my hands. I’ve also managed to keep my room clean for nearly a month now, and I figured it was time to actually take these pictures and let you guys have a sneak peek at where I spend almost all my time. (Seriously. My room is like my own personal sanctuary.)

DSC_0007

We’ll start off when I first walk into my room, and this is the view we see. I have my desk, made out of filing cabinets and a very thin door laid on top. And my lovely spinny chair! That thing is fun.

On my desk is my laptop, which I’m typing this on. Next to it is my favorite lamp ever, you just tap anywhere on it to turn it on and off. And then is my makeup mirror; the box behind it houses my makeup collection. Also on my desk is my basket of shoolwork and a few other school-related things, which we’ll get to in a minute.

Above my desk, and unfortunately you can’t see the lettering in the picture, is a light-up letter box that currently says “PASS THE CHOCOLATE.” Mood of the week.

DSC_0008

We’ll step away from the desk for a minute and turn left, over to my bookshelf! I take very much pride in the fact that it is color-coded. That took ages to do.

DSC_0009

Here’s the full thing.

DSC_0010

Next up is my bed. I picked out the bedspread myself. I have five pillows on it when it’s made, but I only sleep with one of them. โ˜บ๏ธ

DSC_0011

This is so out of order . . . these two things are above my desk. My Nikon (I took these pictures on my brother’s camera because I have to order a new battery charger for this one) sits above my desk on the little white ledge, and next to it is a day-by-day calendar of pictures from Paris.

DSC_0012

I pride myself on the amount of things in my room that light up – my purple star, two strands of white and purple Christmas lights, my light-up photo string, and a letter that is the first initial of my name (which haha, you don’t get to know).

DSC_0014

To the right of my window is what I call my “Paris Corner.” In case you didn’t know, I am slightly Paris-obsessed and this corner is basically dedicated to that. The postcards are all from France, and the earring tree I think my mom bought me at Michael’s. The metal Paris skyline I purchased at the Louvre museum. ย And then below all this are candles and trinkets and a little yarn tree I made. โ˜บ๏ธ

DSC_0015

This is a view of part of my light-up photo string that runs alongside an entire wall in my room, above my closet and door.

DSC_0017

My bookshelf and bed . . .

DSC_0018

. . . and the view you get if you were standing by the Paris Corner. (You can see the light-up sign better here.)

DSC_0019

And now we’re back to the bookshelf again so y’all can see these cool origami foxes my brother made me for Christmas, which I absolutely adore. The little white one is made from a church bulletin and the even tinier blue one in the middle is made out of actual origami paper.

DSC_0020

More foxes, and my blue/purple shelf.

DSC_0021

On the top shelf are the white books, and some trinkets – a clay bunny, a tiny China doll, a little purple heart rock, a snow globe I bought in Las Vegas, and my first corsage from a father-daughter dance I went to in fifth grade.

DSC_0024

I’m way too lazy to rearrange these pictures. ๐Ÿ˜‚ย Here’s my bed again.

DSC_0025

And now we’ve returned to my desk, apparently . . . here are some school supplies – my spray-painited mason jar full of pencils and the supplies box behind it.

DSC_0029

The view out my window – not very pretty this time of year unfortunately. :/

DSC_0032

I guess the point of this picture is to show you what my floor looks like. Our basement (we live in a split-level, like many Alaskans) has flooded multiple times, and my parents got tired of replacing the flooring and decided to rip it out entirely and just refinish the concrete floor. It’s stained and waxed, and is actually really pretty, if not cold. And I just swept, so I’m not sure what the dusty look is about. ๐Ÿ˜‚

DSC_0035

On the wall above my desk is my calender – completely empty at the moment! #thatquarantinevibe

DSC_0036

In case you noticed, the trim is not finished in my room, which is why the white strip between the ledge and the blue wall is visible. Anyway, this is the spot above my bed and it hosts my Bible, my devotional journal, some lotions and Carmex, my ereader, and the book I’m reading.

DSC_0037

Peep my feet . . . ๐Ÿ˜‚ย (I should paint my nails lol.)

DSC_0040

Weird place to end, but here’s another view of the purple star and a replica of a Parisian newspaper from a longggg time ago (haha I don’t know the actual date).

Anyway, that’s my room!

So, what do you guys think? And how are you dealing with COVID-19? Let me know (I’m so bored, I would love to hear from y’all). ๐Ÿ˜‚

XOXO,

Morgan
