Apparently, there’s this thing going around on blogs… and I’ve been touched by the thing!
I will now be answering the blog tag questions – thanks to my good friend Maggie over on ‘Dreaming of Guatemala – check out her site, it’s awesome! Hopefully, this will help all of you get to know me a little better – who is this person posting random things all the time, anyway? So let’s venture into the jungle of my psyche! There are many strange sights to see…
How tall are you?
I wish I was 6 foot… can we just pretend I made it there? Ok, fine.
I’m 5′ 3”.
Do you have a hidden talent?
I learned a cool trick from a friend, and now I am a Spot -It fanatic! (it’s an awesome, simple, but addictive card game – if you ever play a game of Spot It, I’m in!). Is singing along with Disney princess songs a talent?
What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?
Hmmm… probably when I make a typo, but don’t catch it till I’ve published the post. That drives me insane!!!!
What’s your biggest non-blog-related pet peeve?
People raising their voices. There is rarely an excuse for it; no yelling, please.
What’s your favorite song?
Oh no!!! This is such a hard question… I’ll give you several.
‘Human Side’ by Ryan Stevenson is probably number one, though very close lie Plumb’s ‘Don’t Deserve You’, ‘Taxi Cab’ by Twenty One Pilots, ‘Addict with a Pen’ by Twenty One Pilots, ‘A Heart that Forgives’ by Kevin Levar, ‘All I Ask of You’ by Andrew Lloyd Weber, ‘Concerning Hobbits’ by Howard Shore, and ‘Just the Way You are’ by the Piano Guys. Also, anything Celtic or Michael Buble…
What’s your favorite social media website?
My only social media experience has ever been with Pinterest; therefore, my favorite social media website is Pinterest.
What’s your favorite way to spend your time when you’re alone?
1 lie on a trampoline in the sun and listen to the wind in the trees
2 read a really, really good book
3 sing at the top of my lungs
4 create a piece of art (visual art, poem, story, ect.)
What’s your favorite junk food?
Chocolate soda – you can get it at Braums! Go to Braums!
I also love cannoli, but I consider that art.
Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what are their names?
I have one beautiful dog named Sugar – she is my baby, friend, and arch nemesis!
What are your favorite fiction and non fiction books?
Favorite fiction: The Hawk and the Dove, by Penelope Wilcock
Favorite non fiction: Besides the Bible, my favorite non fiction book is ‘The Question of God, by Armand Nicoli Jr. I can’t recommend it enough.
What’s your favorite beauty product or tool?
When were you last embarrassed? What happened?
When I had to stand up in speech class, and give an impromptu speech on a random topic. My topic turned out to be, ‘My worst date ever’. Only, I’ve never had a date! It is difficult to explain to a group of teenagers that you’ve never had a date without feeling like an alien. Oh well!
If I could only drink one beverage (besides water) the rest of my life, what would it be?
Cherry coke. Hands down.
What’s your favorite movie?
The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
What’s your favorite subject in school?
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
In Hobbiton… but, if it has to be in this world… Texas, of course!!!
PC or MAC?
Last romantic gesture from a boyfriend or girlfriend, spouse, or love interest?
I’m still waiting for my first, which is very exciting!!!
Many of my favorite movies involve Tom Hanks. Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun of Twenty One Pilots are pretty cool. Loving Cumberbatch and Freeman in ‘Sherlock’. And of course, the actor who played the beloved Samwise Gamgee, Sean Astin. So… all of them?
What blogger do you secretly want to be friends with?
I’m with Dreaming of Guatemala on this one. I’ve already got great blogger friends – I’m very content, though of course I’d love to meet more.
What is your favorite blog to read?
The Daily Connoisseur, by Jennifer Scott. It’s on YouTube, so, I actually watch it!
What is your favorite high street shop?
We found a delightful store in New Mexico, a beautiful little bookstore that’s quirky and upbeat and deliciously isolated. It’s called Op. Cit.
Are you in education or do you work?
I work – I’m a full time college student! Trust me, that is work 🙂
One thing you are proud of?
My blog, and completing a whole semester of college – though the glory belongs to God; I could never have made it without Him and His kindness. Some people call it false modesty. I call it the truth.
