Hello my friends! Another Friday another day I open my doors and invite you in for a chat.
Today is a little interview from Chalice. aka the Liebster Award.
This thing spreads like wildfires, as it was written in the rules:
- Thank the person who nominated you and display the award. Thank you Chalice! 😀
- Answer the questions provided.
- Provide 11 random facts about yourself.
- Nominate 5-11 other bloggers and make sure they know! Wow, last time I got tagged, it didn’t give you wiggle room on the number. Impressive…
- Ask your nominees 11 questions
Okay! Into the questionnaire.
Question 1: What is something you feel like isn’t talked about enough?
Oh hmm. That is hard, because sometimes I feel like things are talked about too much. So maybe the importance of rest and prayer and meditation and making time for doing nothing every once and a while.
Question 2: What’s a song that is really special to you right now?
Oooh there are so many.
How about Yesterday by The Beatles? And Blackbird, which my little brother actually learned on the guitar.
I’ve basically just been listening to 60’s and 50’s lately.
Question 3: If you could go back and relive any memory, just to experience it again, what memory would you go back to?
Oh dear. My siblings and I were talking about this the other day.
I was a terrible kid.
I’m not sure I would want to relive many days were I made life miserable…
Oh but wait. A day on my family’s four-week road trip in our 15 passenger van for sure from five years ago. That trip was absolutely amazing. Totally one of those. Maybe the day at the Grand Canyon?
Question 4: Would you rather have dreads or be bald? (Just asking the important questions.)
Chalice why do you do this to me??
Being bald might be able to pull of elegantly. But then… I’d be bald.
And I’m quite fond of having hair. So dreadlocks.
Question 5: If you could speak any language fluently, which language would you choose?
Probably American Sign Language, though I guess that isn’t a language you speak. So either Irish (because I love it) or German (because if you know that and English you can get around Europe easily) or Russian (because apparently its known for taking forever to learn.)
Question 6: What’s something you’ve always wanted to do, but haven’t done yet?
Buy an old downtown bookshop and reorganize, add a coffee/tea/pastry shop, run the thing, and host poetry readings
Question 7: Why haven’t you done the thing mentioned above? I mean, come on. You’ve always wanted to do it…
For starters, I don’t have enough to invest in such a project.
And can teenagers even own commercial property?
Question 8: What are three things off the top of your head that make you happy?
- The way I wake up some mornings and find bagels and know my mom buys bagels because she knows I love them (…I say as I eat one)
- The way my little sister likes to play games with me and pretends she’s older
- My dad playing guitar
Question 9: What are three things off the top of your head that make you sad?
- The ending of All the Light We Can Not See, which I just finished reading and am still trying to process and decide whether I liked it or not. 😛
- Just about any of my favorite books. And favorite movies for that matter.
- The way some people are treated because they are different.
Question 10: How do you want to change the world in your lifetime?
That’s a deep one.
I’d say that I wouldn’t trust myself to impacting the world (haha it’s true) but maybe hope for at least just being a sincere person who really cares about people. And when I die people say something like “She was always there to cry with and laugh with and joke with and ponder with. She was a really good friend and she loved me.”
Something like that. 😛
Question 11: Do you wear socks in bed?
Nope, for some reason I just can’t. If I ever try I end up tossing and turning and never end up falling asleep. Anyone want to explain the whole sock-to-bed thing?? Because I really don’t get it.
Now the round of facts…
- I have a little brother who can’t think of any random facts about me
- I like to count out of order and can do it without having to think about it because of a dance I went to once. (1 3 5 7 2 4 …can you guess the next number in the pattern? 😉 )
- I love wearing fuzzy Christmas socks and oversized sweaters
- I can wiggle my ears. (It took forever for me to find the right muscle, but hard word pays off, right?)
- There is a ground hog named Arnold that lives under my family’s back deck.
- I keep accidentally spelling “Liebester” instead of “Liebster”
- I just started reading a collection of C.S. Lewis’s poetry and am enjoying it immensely.
- I have three elephants in my room, but I don’t address them.
- I am working on crocheting my third blanket.
- I am also “working” on many other projects. (Some day I’ll finish them…)
- I use to get the number “eleven” and “twelve” mixed up.
- When was the last time you cried while reading a book/watching a movie? What was it?
- If you could decide what subjects you study in school (real subjects mind you) what would you pick?
- How do you brainstorm blogging ideas?
- What time in the year is the earliest you think Christmas music should be allowed to be played?
- What is a Christmas tradition that you family has?
- What is your favorite Thanksgiving dish? Do you ever make it?
- How do you like to study for a test?
- If you had to perform at least something on stage, what would it be? A comedy act? A song? A dance? A speech? etc.
- What are nine things that you have in your room?
- Would you rather live in a castle or a tree house?
- What is your opinion on whether a hotdog is a sandwich?
Aaaaand I tag….
Those who have only done the Liebster Award 2 times! Why not round it off with a neat bow as a satisfying trilogy?
And with that, I would like to announce me retirement from the Liebster Award, because three is the magic number. And I like trilogies.
Until next week comes
