Award Winning Blog!

I have been nominated for a Liebster Award!

As an upstanding rule follower (but only when I like the rules) Here is a list of the Liebster Rules that I will follow: 

In order to participate, Liebster nominees must:

1.  Thank the person who nominated you. 

2. Answer the 11 questions given to you.

3. Nominate at least 5 blogs with less than 200 followers (approximately).

4.  Post 11 questions for your nominees to answer.

5.  Post a comment on your nominees' blogs to let them know that they've been nominated.

My Thanks:

To +Tim Clark @ Life, Explained, thank you. Your kind words for me and my blog mean more than you could know. 

If you have not read Tim's blog I highly recommend it. He would have been one of my nominees if tag-backs were allowed. He's a self proclaimed writer of the absurd, I find it ridiculously entertaining. He's able to keep up with my witty humor, which not a lot of people can do. :) 

My eleven questions are:

1. What was your main impetus to begin blogging?
I was reading another blog and thought to myself, "I could do this!" So I started my blog. The rest is history. 

2. What was your favorite book?
Was? As in past tense? Well if we are speaking past tense it would be the Christy Miller Series. It was a teenage romance series that I wasn't allowed to read, because Mom didn't want me to read them. I somehow still managed to read them all, including the scadulus Collage Years, behind Mom's back (sorry Mom). The really funny thing is that a few years later Mona, my sister, who isn't a reader at all, was ENCOURAGED by Mom to read the Christy Miller Series. Mom even bought the stupid books for her! Life as an older sibling can be cruel. I don't so much care for the series now, it leaves a slightly bitter taste in my mouth from the overall experience. Well, that and the fact that it was a teenage romance series. \

If we are talking my favorite book now it is To Kill A Mockingbird. I love it. Way better than Christy Miller. 

3. If you had a time machine where would you go first?
The beginning. To really know?

4. When you look at life what thing puzzles you most?
People. They are confusing as heck. I just watched a documentary on Jeffrey Dahmer  ...and he ate people. How is that not puzzling? (Fun Fact: I lived about 15 minutes away from Dahmer before he was arrested)

5. Have you ever posted a Facebook update just to make someone jealous, or angry? 
Do pictures of vacations count? Then yes.  

6. Would you explain?
I like to post pictures of vacation to make everyone at work jealous of me on vacation while they sit at work. 

7. What is your favorite vacation spot, someplace you have been and intend to return?
Umm...let's see. I really loved Portland, Maine. Mona and I planned it at as a last minute 24th birthday trip for me. It's been one of my favorite places so far...I would definitely go back. 

8. How many play lists are on your mp3 player?
None. At least not of my own. I sometimes use Spotify and follow Mona's play lists. I'm a weird person who likes to sit in silence. I love music, but I have to be in the mood to listen to it. I probably listen to Audible (audiobooks) more than music. 

9. Looking at your life now, and thinking about your school years, in what subject do you wish you would have payed more attention?

10. Why? 
Because math. I'm still doing it. It doesn't magically disappear in collage. 

11. Do you believe there is life on other planets?
Yes. Anything is possible. Do you know how big the universe is?!? We haven't even explored all of the oceans! Do I think WE will  find life on other planets? We might not find human like or even animal like lifeforms. I will fall more along the lines of microbiotic extremophile organisms more so than a civilization. But who really knows? We could have already come in contact with alien lifeforms and then had our memories wiped, either by them or the government (Men in Black style). Like I said. Anything is possible. 

My Nomonies are as follows:

1. Brittany @lifechangesii. Who often reminds me of myself. 

2. Caroline Lloyd @ House at Roo Corner. She can crack me up like no other. 

3. Lexy Gray @ Love Ain't Fun When It's Gone. I'd say she's pretty cool. 

4. T.L. Searle @ T.L. Searle Author. Because I can't wait for her next book...she left the first one on such a cliffhanger!!! :) 

5. Jessica Nicole @ Ramblings on Readings. She does book and movie reviews. I always like what she recommends :) 

Now for my question for you:

1. How tall are you?

2. When was the last time you cried and why?

3. What do you think of people?

4. What is your happiest memory?

5. What is your favorite television show?

6. What is your favorite meme? (example please)

7. Who do you wish was your celebrity BFF?

8. What is the worst illness or injury you have ever experienced?

10. What is the weirdest quirk you think you have? 

11. What or who inspires you?
