The Liebster Award Guidelines
I was nominated by Mum is failing at life for the Liebster award (her blog is great by the way!) and I think this award is a great way to make new bloggers feel included in a community. I started this blog as a place to hopefully have a place to give my writing a wider audience and I realized it was much more community involvement to have a blog than I would have thought. I hope this nomination allows me to make new friends to share content with.
These are my answers to her questions:
1 – If you had the chance to have a conversation with someone from your past or present, who would it be? Why? And what would you say?
I would want to talk to my mom when she was in college, it just seems like she would be a lot different when she was younger and I’d love to ask her what she thought about life to see how her views had changed when she got older.
2 – If you could do something without risk, fear or consequences , what would it be?
I would probably be a lot less shy about romantic issues, it seems whenever I’m interested in someone I close up and practically die of embarrassment every five minutes. So I’d probably call the people I like more or go visit them and not let shyness or anything else get in the way.
3 – If you could live a day in someone else’s shoes, who would it be and why?
I would want to live in the shoes of one of my favorite authors, maybe Galen Foley or Catherynne Valente, to see what it’s like to live a life that inspires such great stories like Deathless or the Lord of Ice.
4 – What would be your dream job?
To be a writer. I’ve loved writing stories since I was a kid and when I found out that there’s people who get paid to write I thought it was perfect. So being able to do what I love and supporting myself would be my ideal job.
5 – Where in the world would you say is your “safe” place?
With people I can be comfortable with, anywhere that might be. My friends and family that make me feel safe, that’s my safe place.
6 – My mum is always full of useless information. What is your favourite useless fact that you like to share?
Scuba is an acronym for self contained underwater breathing apparatus.
7 – Have you ever been caught out and believed something that was obviously (after being laughed at) made up? If not, have you ever caught someone out? What did you tell them?
I believed that miscellaneous meant some kind of witchcraft, so when I was little I used to call it the voodoo section of the grocerie store.
8 – What’s the worst gift you’ve ever received? How did you react?
I got this hideous dress from a woman I didn’t really like, and it was pink and terrible. But I just told her it was nice and put it away because I was about 12 and my parent’s would’ve killed me if I was rude.
9 – What do you find most challenging?
Getting out my own thoughts, I think too much and end up inactive for fear of my actions having negative actions. Stopping my anxiety from taking over my thoughts and keeping me from doing what I want to do is what I find challenging.
10 – where do you keep your plastic bags? (Personal family conundrum)
On the knobs of the cabinets beneath the island in my kitchen. (Which, now that I think about it, is both an odd and very specific place to put plastic bags.)
11 – How do you make people feel loved?
Romantically: I try to talk to them, give them my time and attention (maybe a kiss if I’m feeling brave.)
Platonically: Make sure when we’re speaking to focus on them and most often my way of showing affection is feeding them.
