It’s always a sort of thrill to log in to WordPress and see the notification button lit up with its orange background. That means that someone, somewhere liked what I had to say, and it makes me happy to know that my words mean enough to someone that they wanted to let me know. I thought nothing could be better than that feeling.
I was wrong.
Today when I logged on, I had that same orange highlight around the symbol that tells of a comment. Immediately I clicked the button, because I couldn’t wait to see what someone had commented. That was when the shock set in, not only had I received a comment, but the wonderful Guy Dreaming nominated me for the Liebster Award. A simple thank you does not seem like enough, so I recommend checking out his blog; he has a wonderful way with words and his posts are very thought provoking. You won’t regret it!
The Liebster Award provides a wonderful outlet in finding new amazing bloggers by seeing other recommendations by we the bloggers. It’s wonderful, really, and I’m proud to be a part of it.

 I can be somewhat of a neat-nut. Everything has its proper place in my room.
 I have unsuccessfully tried to start a blog at least two other times. Finally, I succeeded in my attempts with Day to Spade.
 I’m not a big fan of chocolate. I’ll eat it in moderation, meaning it has to be a light layer covering a cookie or peanut butter or something of the like.
 Procrastination is my way of life, I’m fairly surprised I’m getting this out so quickly.
 When I play sports, I do it to the extreme. It ends in a lot of fun and bruising. Sometimes there is blood.
 I love all animals, but I’m obsessed with cats.
 I own a lot of hair/makeup products. I’m usually too lazy to use them though.
 Really big fan of photography. I have a nice camera, I just don’t know what I’m doing.
 I have hobby rotations. I tend to focus on one at a time and then cycle back through.
 I’m pretty good at archery. I have a hay bale set up right outside my front door for practice.
 It’s rare for me to feel bored. I’ve got so many random thoughts that I don’t even have time for boredom.
I would love to nominate more, but I struggled with just these ones. Half the people I wanted to nominate had over 200 followers, and I’m not even sure how many followers some of these nominations have.
Questions from Guy:
What’s your favorite meal?
Anything with fries. No, just kidding, kind of. I really like grilled salmon and corn on the cobb as a meal.
How do you deal with stress?
I don’t. I literally do nothing about stress. It ends up boiling over and eventually I have a break down. It’s bad; I’m working on it.
What is your favorite book?
The Castings Trilogy by Pamela Freeman is amazing, and not a lot of people have heard of it. I definitely recommend it. If I had to pick one though, I’d have to say Full Circle wins.
Who has been the most influential person in your life this far?
There are so many authors I could pick who have influenced me, but the real answer would have to be my mother. She helps me more than she or I even realize, and as I get older I’m beginning to appreciate all that she has done more. I’ve had a lot of whims in my life time, and she has supported every single one of them. I don’t think she will ever realize how grateful I am to her.
A less sentimental answer would have to be Tina Fey. She’s my spirit animal.
What is your favorite game (board, card or recreational)?
Chrono Cross for Playstation. It’s old, and it’s my childhood summed up into one game. I will never stop loving or playing that game.
What is your all time favorite TV show?
This changes on a day to day I’m sure. I used to love NCIS; then Ziva left and it all changed. I’d probably have to say InuYasha for the same reason as Chrono Cross. Or Psych, because the Shawn and Gus bromance is something I idolize.
If you could have one super power, what would it be and why?
My super power would deal with time. Stop time, go back in time, fast forward time. I just want to be able to have control over time, because I don’t ever feel like I have enough of it. Plus, if I was able to pause time and write that would be amazing.
Other than your blog, what is your favorite form of Social Media?
Tumblr. I’m on it all the time.
Which family member are you most like?
My brother, it’s actually pretty creepy how similar we are.
If salary and skill set were not an issue, what would your dream job be?
Actress/Musician/Author. More leaning towards the latter two. I love writing, and anything that can act as a creative outlet for me. Which is how acting comes into play.
What’s your biggest vice?
Probably anger or envy.
