Liebster Award 2016
Surprise Everyone!I have been nominated by Kindra M. Austin and Amytalksbooks for the 2016 Liebster Award! This is totally amazing!Thank you so much! I appreciate both your blogs very much and am so happy the feeling is mutual!
The Liebster Award is designed to help new bloggers feel welcome. There are certain rules, and I’m going to go with the ones that my nominee chose. I’ve copied and pasted them below.
The rules are pretty simple to accept your nomination. Make a post about the award and in it you thank the person that nominated you, Answer their questions, Nominate 5 more people, and ask them questions. Piece of cake!
These are the questions that Kindra asked me:
1.Please list five books, in no particular order that have influenced your perception of life.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower, If I stay, The Notebook, The Last Song, and To Kill a Mockingbird.
2.Who is your real-life hero, and why? This person does not necessarily have to be a writing hero.
I would probably say my recently deceased grandmother, Jeanne. She was just themost wonderful woman to be around. She always saw the bright side to everything in life and kept going even with all the rocks life threw her way.She always showed me love and taught me what true happiness and love is. I inspire to be a Elementary school teacher just like her someday.
3.Do you generally like, or dislike film adaptations of classic literature? For example, “The Great Gatsby.”
For the most part,I would say I dislike movie adaptations of books,especially when it comes to series. There are a few exceptions of course. Examples include Bridge to Teribithia, The Princess Bride, etc. (for the record I’m not a fan of The Great Gatsby movie, but I didn’t enjoy the novel much so that may have influence.)
4.If you were a fruit or vegetable, which would you be, and why?
I would like to say a strawberry because I feel they are unique and stand out amongst other fruits. They look funny, but underneath they are just the sweetest things. (if you ask my mom though, I’m a potato because I apparently live on the couch)
5.Do you like The Beatles, the greatest band of all time? Why or why not?
I do like The Beatles (however, I wouldn’t say they’re the greatest band of all time).I enjoy some of there music, but not all. I enjoy that their songs have lyrics that cover a wide variety of things, but there are just songs that don’t sound good to me)
6.What/who inspires your writing the most?
I guess my feeling inspire most of my work. I write bout a lot of different things, but I find that my feelings are the muse to just about everything.
7.Would you ever sign a contract with a publisher relinquishing your rights to your work? Why or why not?
I would consider it, if it wasn’t so darn expensive. I am open to giving more people access to my writing. For me it’s not about the money, but the joy I see from others when they read my work. That is rewarding enough.
8.When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Oh there’s a long list there. Pretty sure the most prominent was to be a rock star or a fashion designer.
9; What is your favorite flower?
Rose, just like my middle name. In general I like a lot of colorful flowers though.
10.If you were a season, which one would you be?
11. Introvert or extrovert?
Depends on who I’m around.
These are the questions that I was asked by Amytalksbooks
1If you could interview anyone, dead or alive…who would it be?
I’d probably choose Nicholas Sparks because he is my favorite author and I would love to know what inspires his writing.
2What is your favourite book?
This is hard. I have so many. I really love the Notebook.
3What is your favourite way to spend a day?
SLEEPING! (I can never get enough). But I do enjoy spending the whole day skiing when I can.
4Where is your favourite place to read?
I think I do most of my reading in the guard room on my breaks. I enjoy it there because it’s an escape from the madness and the only quiet place around.
5Tea or coffee? Or neither?
Coffee. Always coffee. I hate tea.
6What is your biggest pet peeve?
People that chew with their mouths open gross me out. Also I hate people that change the subject to talk about themselves. Sometimes it’s okay, but if we’re talking about pizza and you change the subject mid sentence to talk about your day, get away from me.
7Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
In 5 years, I see myself having graduated from college. I will hopefully be looking forward to summer break after my first year if teaching. Maybe I’ll be engaged?!!?! ( I realize I have to have a boyfriend first for this to happen, but it’s possible.)
8What qualities mean the most to you in a person?
Trustworthiness, Honesty, a sense of humor, Optimistic, Bravery.
9What is your secret talent?
Well I don’t think it’s a secret that I can sing because I have won several awards for my voice, but my real top secret talent? I can write poetry! I know it’s not a secret to you seeing as your reading this on my blog, but most of my real life friends have no idea I can do this. A secret to you is that my name isn’t actually Baffy.
10If you could drop everything right now, and go anywhere, where would it be?
well, normally my answer would be to go skiing out in Colorado (since it’s always been my dream to go skiing in the rockies) but t’s a little to warm for that right now. I’d have to say I would choose to go travel with one of my best friends since they all are leaving me here anyways. (Delaware, Mexico, Hawaii?!?!?! SOMEONE TAKE ME WITH YOU)
