Third Times the Charm: Liebster Award Part Three

Full disclosure: It's been forever since I received my third award nomination. This post should have gone up ages ago.

Here is my first Liebster post and here is my second, for anyone interested.

This time, my thanks goes to Nikki over at Chibi-Chic. You are a sweetheart, my friend.

Once again, I just focus on the questions this time around.

Nikki's Questions for her nominees:
1) What made you decide to start a blog?
Umm...I needed to start writing for someone other than my poetry/creative writing workshop groups.
2) Who would you consider your celebrity idol and why?
I don't think that I have any idols, but I do have "girl crushes"...Like the one I have on Emma Stone, who was named best dressed in Hollywood a couple months back.
This is what you call class
And the fact that I'm wearing my favorite Audrey Hepburn sweatshirt as I type this must mean something...
It's not like I admire her or anything

3) If you could be any fictional villain, who would you choose?
Maleficent. Sleeping Beauty is my favorite "Disney princess" movie pretty much because of her (I put it in quotes because Pocahontas is technically a princess too, but Disney seems to have forgotten that).
Maleficent: a true, diabolical villain.

4) What is your life's dream?
I want to be happy. Almost everything I do is in pursuit of that goal.
5) Out of the friends you have, was there one which you met through unusual circumstances and how?
Well, there was this girl that lived in the same dorm that I did a couple semesters ago...We met in the bathroom when I went to take a shower. I felt a bit awkward making small talk with a stranger when all I wanted to do was jump in the shower stall, but she was very nice and we got along pretty well. I actually ran into her yesterday and she told me that I was one of the only people in that building that talked to her that semester. I can say the same about her.
6) What is the worst or most bizarre program you have ever seen on television?
Wipeout. Now that show is tame in reality TV standards, but I really just don't get it. I don't find watching people getting hurt funny at all. 
You're laughing right now, aren't you?
7) What song best describes you as a person?
What a question! I don't want to be a loser and not answer but scanning through my music library trying to come up with a response has given me a headache. I concede. Coldplay, Keane and OneRepublic songs tend to speak to me if that gives you any idea. 
8) What is your favourite culture and why?
British culture has been my favorite for a really long time. I grew up watching British television shows and I've always been fascinated by what goes on over there. There are also some people who honestly believe that I am French-Canadian, but that's another story for another time.
9) What has been your most proud moment in life to date?
When one of my pieces (a prose poem about my mother) made it into my college's creative writing publication my sophomore year and I officially became a published writer.
10) What has been the scariest film you have seen. (For whatever reason?)
You probably won't catch me watching any scary movies; I do not like being scared. I have seen a few or the lighter ones like The Ring, Darkness Falls, and the first few Paranormal Activity movies and they didn't really interest me (the Paranormal series is extremely boring in my opinion). But one movie that makes me jump at the same point every time is Wait Until Dark starring Audrey Hepburn (Two mentions in one post? That must mean something...). Check it out and you will know exactly what part I'm talking about.
It was considered one of the 
scariest movies during its time for a reason
11) How much herp could a herp-a-derp herp if a herp-a-derp could herp derp? (I couldn't think of an eleventh, so just surprise me with an insightful answer to this!)
None, because ice cream doesn't have any bones.

Once again, I'd like to thank you for reading my nonsense. There are so many other things you could do with your time, so I appreciate you sharing a little bit of it with me.

Wish List--I Love Video Games Necklace

I am always looking for ways to let people know about my passion for video games. You know, other then awkwardly shoving the fact into random conversations with random strangers...The main problem is that many gamer-centric products scream "I play video games and this is my favorite character/title!" with huge logos, bright colors or obnoxious pictures. And sometimes you just want to show your love without wearing a t-shirt that people could assume you borrowed from your younger brother.

That is where this necklace comes in. Simple and understated, this accessory tells people that you're a gamer without shoving your favorite franchise in their faces. Best of all, it's undeniably feminine! This piece isn't a "want", this is a "need".

Find it on Etsy.

Do you love this necklace as much as I do?

Welcome to the New Year. Better Late Than Never...

Time is a fickle mistress. 
I have been a terrible blogger. It has been ages since the last time I posted anything and 2012 pretty much ended without me. Let me start of by saying that I hope you had a pleasant holiday season and that 2013 started off with not just a bang, but an epic explosion of awesome. You deserve it.

Of course with every new year comes New Year's Resolutions and the blinding obsession with self-improvement that always seems to fade away by the time January 31 rolls around. If you couldn't tell by that last sentence, I'll just come right out and say that I'm not a big fan of the tradition. However, I am determined to write more this year and that includes working harder on this blog. I didn't get the chance start right when the ball dropped, but I will try to keep this motivation burning as long as I possibly can.

How has 2013 been treating you? Did you make any fantastic (or extremely reasonable) resolutions?
