The Geeky Girl Tag

I first saw this tag over on Chimmyville (a blog run by the very lovely Kim). As soon as I saw this tag I knew I had to give it a try. Up until I did this tag I thought I was pretty geeky, but maybe I’m not as geeky as I thought?

The Geeky Girl Tag

What is your must-have tech gadget?

My phone. It’s a Samsung Galaxy S7 and I use it so much. In bed I’m glued to it while I watch YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime videos and Twitch streams. If I’m not watching anything, then I’m playing a game on it, reading the news, using my social media accounts, or I’m typing furiously in WhatsApp.

If I ever need to remember something I type it in my phones memos too. I’m forever creating To-Do lists on my phone, as this is the only way I can get things done. I surf the internet on my phone, read blog posts on my phone, shop on my phone and basically I’d be lost without it.

If I think back to my first Motorola brick phone, it’s truly amazing how far technology has come.

I’ve never been part of the Apple crowd, so iPhones are not something I’ve ever used. Personally I like not being a sheep though. My good ol’ Samsung is the best and I’ve had no issues with it so far. Touch wood.

Which house do you belong to in Hogwarts?

I’m not really into Harry Potter (I’m sorry everyone in this fandom, don’t come for me please!) I read the first few books as a teenager and I watched the first couple of films, but I’ve never been really into it.

I did make a Pottermore account when that came out and did all the quizzes and things though, so I do know what my house is. I’m Gryffindor and I remember that because that’s the house I wanted to be in.

I would have been okay with Slytherin too, though I would have questioned my morals a little then.

Who is your favourite Doctor?

My GP I guess?

I know this is in relation to Doctor Who, but I’ve never been interested in it and therefore never watched it. I don’t even want to try watching it either.. again, people of that fandom, please don’t come for me!

If you could have dinner with any fictional character, who would it be?

Easily Buffy Summers from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Our personalities are very similar, so I’m not sure how that would go.. we might weird each other out because of that, but that could be funny. It might be pretty hard to pin her down to have dinner with though, she’s so busy.

What is your gaming system of choice?

I guess because I own an Xbox 360 and Xbox One I’d have to say Xbox. I do own a PS2 though and I really want a PS4 because there’s so many Playstation exclusive games that I want to play. I wouldn’t mind a Nintendo Switch either.

Though.. truth be told, I much prefer PC gaming.

In all honesty, I just love gaming and if I could have every console and game out there, then I would. I honestly don’t understand how people can say they are “gamers” if they only play on one console.

If you had a super power, what would it be?

There’s 2 I wouldn’t mind.. and if I could have them both together, then that would be amazing.

Super strength and invisibility are the two I’d love to have.

Having super strength would make me so useful for helping out in disasters and things.. I could just go pick up a building or something.

Invisibility would be amazing because I could do all the things I’m too scared to do (which is pretty much everything) and not be seen. I’d never have to worry someone was looking at me, or judging me ever again and that would be bliss.

What is your favourite fantasy world?

I guess the Buffy/Angel world would be one of my top picks. It’s really hard to just pick one though.

Supernatural worlds just appeal to me in general. It’s a form of escapism and escaping from my head, even for a moment, is heaven.

If you could be any fictional race, what would you be?

I’d be a mermaid. That’s a fictional race, right?

I’ve been obsessed with mermaids since I watched “The Little Mermaid” as a kid. I was so distraught when I found out I couldn’t actually be a mermaid. Though, maybe that’s a good thing since I don’t really have the body to make a good looking mermaid.

Fun fact, I have a mermaid tattoo because it’s something that hasn’t stopped being something I like. I have other things I’d love to get tattooed too, but I just haven’t yet. One day I will.

Star Trek or Star Wars?

I haven’t seen either, so, neither.

    Thanks for doing the tag! I really enjoyed reading your answers – I love Buffy, Angel and Firefly myself and I’m also a Samsung girl. I’ve tested an IPhone once in Carphone Warehouse shop and didn’t get on with it at all. I much prefer my S7.

      I told you some of our answers were similar! I was so happy to find someone else who was into the same shows.

      Thanks for letting me do this tag and for leaving a lovely comment ♥

    I used to love watching Buffy so I would pick Spike as my dinner companion, he’s so droll. And yay, fellow Samsung phone owner here, I just don’t get all the hype around iPhones, Android all the way. Like you, I’m not a Harry Potter fan, I enjoyed the books but all the merch and hype leaves me unmoved. What a fun tag post, you have some great answers 🙂 xx

      Oooh Spike as a dinner companion.. that would be good too, but I don’t think my fiancé would appreciate it much!

      Yeah, I don’t understand all the hype around iPhones either.. glad I’m not the only one.

      Thanks for your lovely comment, as always ♥

    Fun tag, loved the answers. I have Apple and it’s unlikely I will buy another one again. It makes amazing pictures, but pretty much that’s it. The rest is incredibly annoying. Samsung is so much better.

      That’s a shame that it’s not good for you. It seems most apps and things are designed for Apple, so it’s quite interesting to hear that you don’t enjoy it. I’ve never tried one or been interested in the whole hype surrounding iPhones, but it sounnds like I’m not missing out then!

      Thanks for commenting ♥

    This is such a fun tag! I used to watch a lot of Buffy, I think she would make a pretty awesome dinner companion. I’m glad I’m not the only one who isn’t into Harry Potter or Dr Who! That’s really cool that you have a mermaid tattoo, I see why you picked your blog name now. So cool! Such a great post, thank you for sharing <3 xx

      Yes, my blog name was inspired by my love of mermaids and cats.. so I combined them!

      Thank you for your lovely comment ♥
