Welp, even though I am quite possibly the slowest blogger in the world, GrimmGirl has nominated me for a Liebster Award! *cue confetti cannons, big band music, and possibly a dove release, you know, like they do at rich people weddings*
From my understanding it’s like a blogger’s choice award, so basically the people love me. Or my sister does anyways, so that’s gotta count for something. To be honest, due to my very small body of work (and shamefully limited knowledge on other bloggers) I don’t really think I deserve it, but that doesn’t stop me from feeling flattered or dissuade me from participating in the fun little questionnaire. So here goes, 11 answers to 11 questions all geared towards my one expertise: me.
1.) Why did you decide to start your blog?
CUZ I’VE GOT SOMETHING TO SAY. I’m not sure what yet, but I feel words boiling over, and in an effort to make sense of them I thought a blogging platform would be more effective than my journal. I’m hopping to attract/find other writers and we can learn from each other. In short, I want to become a better writer, a better reader, and find a community of passionate wordsmiths.
2.) Have you ever watched anime? If so, which is your favorite?
Yes indeedy, I enjoy anime. I would have to say my favorite is Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood. I love the character development, the music, the art, everything. It makes me laugh, cry, and honestly gives me the creeps at times. The premise of equivalent exchange gets me questioning my own values and motives. If you haven’t seen it, I suggest you stop reading my babbling and go change your life.
3.) Who is your favorite author and why?
I absolutely love Paulo Coehlo. His work makes me believe in magic and the power of the human spirit. He will never know my name, but his words nourish my soul.
4.) Do you consider yourself an introvert or extrovert?
I’m an introverted extrovert. I can be the life of the party or that stormy-faced girl in the corner drinking alone and wondering why the fuck I ever left my bed. I like to socialize, but if I don’t get some solid solitude to rejuvenate I can really lose my shit.
5.) What’s a hobby you have outside of blogging?
Poi spinning. I’m not the best, but I can definitely groove.
6.) Have you ever read any of the Grimm fairytales? If so which story is your favorite?
I have actually read quite a few. I don’t know if I have a favorite, but I have favorite aspects. Like I like the fact that in Cinderella the evil step mom dances in hot shoes till she dies. Good shit.
7.) If you had to describe your life as a movie title what would it be?
Right now it would be called Quarter-Life Crisis. Self-explanatory.
8.) If you could meet any fictional character who would you meet?
Woah. Now that’s a lot of pressure. I would have to really think on it, and I’m sure I will change my mind the more I mull it over, but for now I’ll say the Weasley twins from Harry Potter. Let’s get into some mischief.
9.) Who’s your go-to makeup brand?
El oh el. I put on makeup like a drunk otter, meaning not well and who the hell even gave me makeup?
10.) What are you top-notch at preparing food wise?
Can’t nobody touch my french toast.
11.) What was the last movie, book, or tv show that made you cry?
I can’t remember, but I think it was The Revenant. They killed his son, y’all. His son.
