THE LIEBSTER AWARD
My amazingly, awesome friend Bronwyn Green was given a blogging award by Tumbling Words. Wooo hooo!!! She was then asked to nominate 11 other bloggers for this same award and here I am. Thank you, Bron!
What do you feel is the most criminally underrated movie or TV show?
This one is tough since I don't watch a lot of TV and rarely go to the movies anymore. But, I think the new GhostBusters was so utterly amazing and it just didn't do that well. I was bummed about it since I loved it.
How do you feel about clowns?
I can't stand them!!! They scare the crap right out of me.
What’s your favorite book?
Of all time, my fav book is The Secret Garden by Frances H. Burnett. So much awesome. I have like 6 or 7 different copies of it, one being the very first one my grandmother gave me.
Where is your happy place?
In my own head. I love crafting stories and coming up with characters. Now, if I had to chose someplace to go it would be Disney World. That place just makes me smile. I've been 3 times and would love to go again.
Growing up, what was your favorite toy?
Paper dolls. My Sis and I had a ton of them and we'd set them up as if they were living in this huge apartment building. We had long running story lines for every character.
What was the worst job you ever had?
I worked at a mortgage place for like three days. I found out that I was hired over someone else who had way more experience. One of my co-workers told me about it as if it was somehow my fault. It was not a good situation.
What fact about you surprises people the most?
I'm an introvert. The people I work with are stunned since I'm all sparkling and chatty, but it's an act. I learned to put it on when I taught school and now that's what works at the bookstore.
What’s the one thing you wish you’d known as a freshman in college?
I was an adult when I started college. I didn't go right out of high school so my freshman year happened when I was working full-time and was 25.
What are two of your bucket list items?
I want to go to Scotland and tough Hadrian's Wall. And, I want to go to Glastonbury to visit the Tor and Chalice Well.
Do you play any instruments? If so, which one(s)? If not, are there any you wish you could play? If so, which ones?
No, but I really wish I'd learned to play guitar.
What’s the most thoughtful gift you’ve ever been given?
I didn't think so at the time, but the most wonderful, amazing gift I've ever gotten is my younger sister. She is my best friend and I can't imagine my life without her.
