I'd Like to Thank the Academy...The Liebster Blog Award

I return from my short absence with good news: I was nominated for a Liebster blog award! For those of you who don't know, this award is passed along from new blogger to new blogger as a way of saying "I like what you're doing. Keep up the good work!". Liebster is a German term of endearment.

(It's really just a blogger chain letter. But it doesn't involve your crush kissing you or tragic death in any way, so it's a letter you actually want to receive and pass along.)

Thank you, Carissa (from Lillies & Silk)! Your blog is fantastic by the way.

When you receive the award, you're supposed to post 11 random things about yourself, answer 11 questions from the person who nominated you, nominate 11 blogs of your own and post 11 questions for them to respond to. The best thing about this is that it's for blogs with less than 200 followers (Check my numbers; I'm not even close), so it's a great way to get exposure as well as connect with others.

Here's 11 random video game related facts about myself:
1.) I only own a Playstation 2 because a friend of mine got two for Christmas. He gave me all the games he didn't want, but I'm still very grateful.
2.) Many people honestly believe that I own a pink Wii. I wish I did.
Why don't I own this?!?

3.) If I play a game where I can decide my character's name, I choose either Jessica or Fox. Link is always named Jessica.
4.) I get extremely excited whenever I hear the main theme to Super Mario Galaxy 2.
5.) I played clarinet in high school, but I joined a saxophone group just so I could play the Super Mario theme with them for one performance.
6.) I only paid $1 for the DS that I have now. It came with Pokemon Pearl.
The deal of the century.
7.) There was a point in time where the workers at my local GameStop addressed me by name and spoke to me like we were old friends.
8.) I still have the original box and additional materials for my Nintendo 64. Including the old Nintendo Power magazine offer cards.
9.) When the colored Nintendo 64's came out, my mother suggested that I paint my dark grey one with nail polish. She was joking, but I considered it.
I only didn't do it because it wouldn't be transparent.
10.) My older cousin once carried me out of Target like a sack of potatoes because I didn't stop playing the in-store game demo console fast enough. I was just reseting it for the boy behind me. After all these years, I am still mad about it.
11.) I don't celebrate Halloween, but I would dress up as Princess Rosalina at least once if I did (Happy Halloween to those of you celebrating today).

The 11 Questions for Carissa's Nominees:
1. When did you start your blog?
July of this year after a previous failed attempt.
2. What made you decide to start blogging?
I want to be a writer. It was about time I started writing something.
3. What goals did you have for your blog when you started and have they changed now?
My initial goal was to start writing. Now my goal is to keep writing. 
4. What are your hobbies?
Playing video games, reading, writing, drawing, shopping, eating, magazine collaging.
5. Do you enjoy movies and if so what are your favorite two?
I love movies. My favorite two are Pocahontas and Taken. 
The colors of the wind: a rainbow.
The color of revenge: blood red.
6. What season is your favorite and why?
Fall. It's the best fashion season and pumpkin is in everything. 
Pure awesome in a liquid form.
7. If you could do one thing at this moment what would it be?
I wouldn't do my homework if I could still get a A.
8. Do you have any pets and if so what kind of pet is it?
Not at the moment. My mother has a Pomeranian but he doesn't like me so I don't claim him.
9. What is your favorite color?
Electric Blue Metallic.
A picture for reference.
10. What are you grateful for the most?
My life and the ability to get an education at the college of my choice while living in the best residence hall/apartment on campus with the best roommates ever. It's all thanks to God and my mother. 
11. What is your biggest fear?
Pregnancy and childbirth. No joke. Right now "I don't know nothin' about birthin' no babies" and I don't want to.

  1. Thanks! Very fun! I had the purple N64! I gave my nephew the grey one!

    1. You are very welcome! I'm just a little bit jealous of your 64...and when I say a little bit, I mean a lot...

  2. Thanks for nominating me! I've discovered quite a few little blogs I like the look of and can't wait to get started on your questions! :-)

    1. You're welcome! I tried to ask some interesting questions, so I can't wait to see your answers!


Questions? Concerns? Disagree with me completely? Think that video games and fashion is a horrible combination and that I should go back to my (non-existant) day job?

Leave a comment! Every opinion is welcome here--even that last one--as long as you're polite and courteous.
