Sisterhood of the World Blogging Award

I was nominated by Bridget @ Stay and Watch the Stars AND Rebekah @ Horse Feathers. Thank you so much, both of you! <3 I will be doing both of your questions, because, why not?

The rules:

Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.

Put the Award logo on your blog.

Answer the ten questions sent to you.

Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.

Nominate seven blogs.

The questions from Bridget:

What’s the saddest book you’ve ever read?

It’s a tie between The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.

What’s your favorite animal, and why?

CATS. ALL CATS. They’re so furry and soft and adorable and cuddly–I JUST CAN’T. I also find them quite intelligent and peaceful.

Would you rather write a best selling book that everyone loves but you, or write a book that only you love?

I can’t answer this. Just, no.

What’s your opinion on potatoes? (Yes, this is a very important question. It’s for research purposes.)


They taste good? :P

What’s the longest amount of time you’ve spent marathoning a movie/ TV series?

I’ve never done this. :( I want to, but I never have, IDK why.

Why did you decide to start blogging?

Because I saw another blog and I just had to make one EVEN BETTER.

Jk, jk.

It’s because I saw Sam’s, and I thought it would be cool. Bam–blog!

If you could choose one superpower, what would it be?

Just one? To be able to read people’s minds. I think that would be awesomely creepy and cool. >:D

What’s your favorite word? (The way it sounds, the meaning, whatever. Just your favorite word, for any reason.)

I really like the word periwinkle. It just sounds so cool. :P

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? (Disregarding costs and such)



That is technically in the world.

What’s the last song you listened to?

I am currently listening to “Ours” by Taylor Swift.

And no for Rebekah’s fabulous questions:

What is your favorite book ever. Just one. (Mva ha ha)

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG why must you torture me so???

My favorite book changes a lot, so I usually go with my old standby: “Harry Potter.” But I’m feeling…different [nope wrong word] special [no again] adventurous today, so I’m going to go with Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor because I am reading the trilogy right now and it’s just FABULOUS.

What is your favorite animal?

See my other answer.

What are you wearing?

Ummm personal much??? Jk, jk, it’s cool.

I’m wearing my very boring uniform: white collared shirt, navy pants, white sweater. I know. It’s amazing. But next year, at my new school, I get no uniform! *dances awkwardly*

What is your favorite and least favorite food?

Favorite: CHOCOLATE.

It keeps the dementors away.

Least Favorite: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, eggplant, nuts

So like anything really healthy. XD

What is your dream job?

I’m going to add “besides being an author.” And then “besides feminism activist.” Because those are two jobs I’m 60% sure will happen, and I like to dream of the impossible.

I would actually really like to be a flight attendant, You get to see the world! But this probably won’t happen because it takes a lot of training. And you have to be able to walk on a moving plane. In heels.

And I can hardly walk in heels on non-moving ground. So. Not the job for me.

Are you good at Mario Kart?

Never played it…

What is your favorite joke?

I don’t really know…

Top five favorite blogs?

You make me answer thus question? And offend trillions of people? Ah, no.

Are you an outdoor person?

I like the idea of it. But not the bugs. Or dirt. Or lack of wifi.

Have you ever ridden a horse/pony?

I have ridden a horse before. TWICE actually.

Sunshine Award and Things

I was nominated for the

the sunshine awardby Engie from Musings from Neville’s Navel. [Which, BTW, is the most creative blog name I’ve ever heard.] Thank you, Engie!!! Here are five facts about moi:

  1. When I’m bored, I like to either go on Pinterest and look at fandom pins, or search the internet for quotes. Which obviously explains why I’m so wise. :P
  2. I have blue eyes. And I love them! In fact, I love them so much, that I am dying part of my hair their color.
  3. I am sounding really mean, egotistical, and vain right now. And I am not mean, egotistical, or vain. So sorry if that gave you the wrong impression!
  4. My favorite singer of all time is Taylor Swift, but I am afraid she is going off the deep end. Which makes me really sad, because her early songs were so inspiring and uplifting. Literally, if I’m sad, there’s a Tay song for it. Go, Swifties! [But her new song, “Shake It Off,” is so horrid that I’m tempted to say that I am not a Swiftie.]
  5. I really love cats. And cat GIFs. And my cat, Mattipuss. And all things cat-like. Which is why I also love harbor seals and otters.
  6. *BONUS* I am going to participate in a Spanish spelling bee in March. Right now, I’m starting to study. Wish me luck! [Funny story about this. So our Spanish teacher said, “The spelling bee is in March. If you last that long.” I turned to my friend and said, “She makes it sound like we’re going to lie!” And she replied, “It’s like the Hunger Games, but spelling bee version.” I cracked up and laughed so hard.]

And, now, Engie’s five questions. Yay!

What book will you read next?

Malala’s new book, I Am Malala: How One Girl Stood Up for Education and Changed the World.

Do your parents, siblings, or any other relatives read your blog? What do they think of it?

My parents actually rarely read it. But my sister does. And my maternal grandparents. They also read my novel. They love it, and tell their friends, and all that jazz. I’m famous. XD

What is the funniest thing you’ve seen or heard recently?

See above story about the spelling bee. If that counts.

If you could choose, right now, to be either ten years younger or ten years older than you currently are, which option would you pick?

Ten years older! Because if I was ten years younger, I’d be really little. And I wouldn’t want that.

What is your quest?

My…my quest? *blinks in confusion* Um, to live life to the fullest, carpe diem, carpe librum, and be a generally good person. Oh yeah! That’s mah quest. This girl, right here.

My questions for the upcoming nominees are…

  1. Why did you start your blog? How did you publicize it in the beginning?
  2. Are you a feminist? If so, why? If not, why not?
  3. If you’re a writer, what is your current WIP? If you’re not a writer, what are you reading and what do you think of it? And if you’re not doing either, there is nothing I can do to help you.
  4. What is your Hogwarts house, godly parent, camp (Camp Half-Blood or Camp Jupiter), and faction? And, for those Hunger games fanatics (I don’t get you), do you want to be a tribute and would you survive in the arena? [Do as many as your fandoms allow.]
  5. What is your all-time, favorite Starbucks drink? [And if you don’t go to Starbucks, just–just leave. Go. I can’t even…]
  6. *BONUS* Have you done the ice bucket challenge
