If I were …

January 15, 2020 2 min read 24 Comments

If you’ve gleaned some of the things I like, then you know I’m a fan of random quizzes and tags. From Enneagram Tests to 73 Vogue Questions anything that lets you find out more about yourself as well as other people are a must for me, so I was super pumped to find the ‘If I were…’ tag while scrolling through Tumblr (peep my page here)! 

It’s a great way to connect with random thoughts we all have while also being a super creative way to explore you. All you have to do is finish the sentence with an answer and add some pictures.

Without further ado, let’s get to it!

Lupine flower

if I were a flower… Lupine

Woman spreading her arms

if I were an emotion… Joy

Green pine trees near teal water at daytime

if I were a place… the Mountains by a lake

Brown leafed trees

if I were a season… Fall/Autumn

Rippling body of water

if I were an element… water

Green plants over the valley and mountains under blue sky

if I were a sound… the Countryside (winds howling, birds and crickets chirping, owls hooting, etc.)

Selective focus photography of orange and brown falling maple leaves

if I were weather… Sunny cool crisp day (preferably in fall ?)

Pink, orange, and blue, clouds at sunset

if I were a time of day… Sunset

White and brown seashells

if I were a color… Pastel Teal

Noddle dish on white ceramic bowl

if I were a food… Chinese Food

Strawberries on white bowl

if I were a fruit… Strawberries

White ceramic mug filled with black coffee

if I were a virtue… Fortitude

Flowers and candles next to bed

if I were a scent… Ocean breeze & fresh linen

Assorted-title book in bookcase

If I were a superpower… Innate capability (the ability to know or understand something without the need of studying or previous experience)

Et voila! I hope you enjoyed the tag as much as I did! I’m super curious to see some of your answers so I’m tagging a couple of other bloggers to try it out:

What were some of your answers?

    It’s a fun way to describe your personality.

    • annaelleliz January 22, 2020 at 10:33 am

      So true! It’s definitely less pressure than an about me page.

  • Tiffany January 16, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    This is such a fun post, I love it!! All the pictures and the different concepts of self really create a unique perspective 🙂 I think the idea of identifying with these various aspects tells a lot about personality and offers insight into our very being. Very cool!

    • annaelleliz January 16, 2020 at 10:09 pm

      I so agree! It seems super simple but taking a minute to think about what ‘random’ things align with certain aspects of yourself is actually really introspective.

  • Sahara January 16, 2020 at 9:24 pm

    This was an interesting and super creative tag! I’m not sure what flower I’d be (I feel like that’s where my lack of flower knowledge would shine through haha) OH we’re the same season! Fall/Autumn is my favorite – not too hot or too cold but just right, especially for running! If I were a fruit I wouldn’t know what I’d be haha I love them all, strawberries are one of my favorites, and raspberries are amazing so I’d chose the option of being a fruit basket haha!

    This was super fun to read through!


    • annaelleliz January 16, 2020 at 9:53 pm

      Fall/Autumn is by far the best season! It’s the perfect temperature weather-wise and I can rock out all the oversized sweaters!

      Haha such a smart idea to choose a fruit basket!

  • Christa January 16, 2020 at 7:37 pm

    This is so fun! I have to think about my answers to these questions. Some of them are hard!

    • annaelleliz January 22, 2020 at 10:31 am

      I know right! It took me some time to even answer some of the “easy” ones!

  • Jupiter Hadley January 16, 2020 at 5:21 pm

    What a fun idea! This is very cute.

    • annaelleliz January 16, 2020 at 6:30 pm

      It was super fun to do!

  • Louise January 16, 2020 at 4:39 pm

    What a great tag! I’d actually say the same as you for quite a few of these to be honest.

    If I were a flower I’d be a lily
    If I were an emotion I’d be happiness
    If I were a place I’d be a waterfall in the mountains
    If I were a season I’d be autumn
    If I were an element I’d be water
    If I were a sound I’d be laughter
    If I were weather I’d be breeze
    If I were a time of day I’d be sunset
    If I were a colour I’d be grey
    If I were a food I’d be lasagne
    If I were a fruit I’d be a strawberry
    If I were a virtue I’d be temperance
    If I were a scent I’d be fresh linen
    If I were a superpower I’d be invisibility

      HAHA that’s too cool! That fresh linen scent is a must! Oh, laughter is such a wonderful sound!

  • Kayleigh Zara January 16, 2020 at 3:44 pm

    This is such a cool idea for a post, if I was food I would also want to be Chinese as it is just so delicious. I really like the fact you picked teal too, it’s such a pretty underrated colour x

    Kayleigh Zara ?✨

    • annaelleliz January 16, 2020 at 6:22 pm

      I’m waaay too obsessed with Chinese food, I could eat it every day if I had the choice!

      Yes! Teal is too underrated!

  • Mai January 16, 2020 at 3:44 pm

    What a fun tag! I love reading these and getting to know the person better.

    • annaelleliz January 16, 2020 at 6:23 pm

      Me too! It’s like you’re getting a little glimpse of a person.

  • Lia January 16, 2020 at 1:48 pm

    This is great. If I were an element I’d be air lol just like my star sign. But I wonder why you chose water? That’s interesting. This is post is inspiring me. Thank you for sharing.

    • annaelleliz January 16, 2020 at 6:19 pm

      I’ve always been drawn to water and find it super relaxing and calming, and my mom has always said I have that effect on people so I think that could be it. Plus, I totally forgot my star sign’s element is water so that could have for sure influenced that.

  • Brittany limberakis January 16, 2020 at 12:24 pm

    Wow I love this idea! Now I’m gonna spend all day thinking of mine!

    • annaelleliz January 16, 2020 at 6:38 pm

      It literally took me a week to figure out my answers!

  • Amber January 16, 2020 at 7:48 am

    This is fun. My scent would be fresh linen too. Thats for certain.

    • annaelleliz January 16, 2020 at 6:35 pm

      Can never go wrong with fresh linen as a scent! It’s so clean and relaxing!

  • Kileen January 15, 2020 at 11:26 pm

    This is so cute and so fun! I wonder what mine would be!?

    cute & little

    • annaelleliz January 16, 2020 at 6:35 pm

      This was super fun to do! Especially trying to come up with answer you thought were easy and a given!
