Hi guys! I’ve already received this award before- original post here– but Jane from The Anything Blog was nice enough to nominate me a second time, so much thanks to her. The purpose of this award is to support new bloggers who have less than 200 followers. ‘Liebster’ means ‘nicest, dearest, or sweetest’ (etc.) in German. The award is a great way to spread the word about awesome up-and-coming bloggers!

RULES FOR ACCEPTING THE AWARD:

  • link back to the blog that nominated you
  • answer the questions they asked on their post
  • nominate ten other blogs for the award and make sure to let them know (with a link to your post)
  • ask ten questions for the blogs you nominate to answer
  • share some random facts about yourself
HERE ARE THE QUESTIONS I GET TO ANSWER:

1. Curly or straight hair?
Straight. My hair is really curly and I really don’t like it. Most of the time I’m okay with it, but really, I prefer straight hair. It’s so much easier to take care of and you can do so much more with it.
2. Chocolate or Vanilla ice cream?
Both!
3. Favorite book (I know it’s hard)?
I’ve got a whole post on it. Here it is! Favorites Friday: All-Time Favorite Books
4. Favorite author?
J.K. Rowling, Libba Bray, and my ultimate favorite: Kristin Cashore
5. What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
Besides reading and reviewing, I write for fun, play the piano, play video games, watch movies and my favorite TV show (Adventure Time), and do various arts and crafts (sculpting, jewelry-making, etc.)
6. What is your number one pet peeve? 
I have so many….one thing that really gets me is when someone asks ‘Are you okay?’ and I say ‘yes’ and they don’t believe me and continue to ask the same thing until I get genuinely annoyed.
7. Cupcakes or cookies?
Eww! No! I like baking them, along with cakes and pies and other desserts (and brownies) but when it comes to eating them…I’m not really all that fond of baked goods! I know it’s weird! But if I had to choose, cookies. Mostly I like desserts with apples.
8. Pinterest or Google + ?
Hmm…I’d have to say I’m a reluctant user of both. I have a Pinterest that I created years and years ago but I never actually pin anything anymore. And yet people still follow me! I have a Google + that I don’t really use except for following people back and stuff. So it’s a tie.
9.  Which occupation would you rather have : Teacher or scientist?
Teacher, I suppose. I’m not a huge fan of children but I’d prefer anything over being a scientist. I hate science with a passion.
10. Favorite song?
That’s difficult…it changes so much and I have so many…..I have over 2,000 songs on my iPod. But I’ll name a couple that have been stuck in my head recently:
and the presidential campaign song of Dwight Eisenhower, I Like Ike. (I was introduced to it in History class and my friend and I have not been able to stop singing it. We’re so weird about that kind of stuff :D) 

RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME:
  • I’m obsessed with the color green.
  • I am also a writer, but have the can’t-ever-finish-anything syndrome.
  • I have a job as a cashier and I am the best at it. Seriously I’m the fastest cashier in the store (:
  • I’m super proud of my library. I have so many books! I really can’t wait to buy a house just so I can have a proper library room and buy tons more books for it. College is going to kill me because I won’t be able to keep all my books…
  • I want to be an editor for a publishing company. Or perhaps a librarian. That’ll be my backup.
  • My two favorite cities (outside the U.S.) are Venice and Paris! I’ve been to Venice twice and it’s so beautiful. I haven’t  been to Paris yet but I’ve heard such good things about it and I love all things French (I’m in my third year of French at school) so I’m sure I’ll love it when I finally go (after I graduate).
  • I hate things that lots of other people love, like dogs, the color blue, and unhealthy food like pizza and fries.
  • When I’m upset I do things like clean and rearrange furniture. And then I play the piano or read to calm down. I also take walks.
  • I am equally an introvert and extrovert.
  • I am nocturnal. And also part cat. (I am so obsessed with cats it’s crazy)
  • I’m famous for not sticking with things. I’ve quit so much: jazz, tap, ballet, hip-hop, swimming, soccer, violin, Girl Scouts (pretty much), sculpting (mostly), etc. The only things I’ve really been able to stick with are reading and playing the piano.
*DRUMROLL PLEASE* And now…the part you’ve all been waiting for….

MY NOMINEES:

(note: I’m only nominating 5 people because I’ve already gotten this award and it’s quite exhausting finding people to nominate when you don’t actually know that many bloggers, especially NEW bloggers)
