Liebster Award 2.0

 

Hey everyone!  It’s Monday and today I am doing an award. I was nominated by @TheWhimsicalChick! A huge shoutout to her. This seems slightly  like the Liebster Award I did so long ago. I answer ten questions given to me by The Whimsical Chick and give 10 random facts about myself. I then nominate 10 people and give them 10 questions to answer themselves. I hope to do awards and tags more often 🙂


The Rules:

  1. Post the award on your blog.
  2. Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you.
  3. Answer the questions assigned to you.
  4. Give 10 random facts about yourself.
  5. Nominate 10 deserving bloggers for the award.
  6. Ask 10 questions to your nominees.

The questions:

1.What was your favorite childhood book?

This is tough since I’ve always loved books. I enjoyed Dr. Seuss books like Green Eggs and Ham.


2.Where is one instance where you liked a movie better than the book it was based off of?

I haven’t seen many book to movie adaptions but I’ve always loved the book more. So I guess there hasn’t been an instance yet?


3.Where is one instance where you liked the book better than the movie?

All the instances I’ve seen a book to movie adaption XD


4.Who is your role model?

Definitely my mom. She’s done so much for me and taught me a lot. My mom has made me the person I am today 🙂

5. If you could go back in time, what era would you go to? Would you change anything?

I’d go to the Mesozoic era. It was when the first mammals came. I wouldn’t change anything about history. It’s made the world how it is today.
One of the first mammals

6.What is the most time you have re-read a book?

I don’t know. 3-5 times I believe. I normally don’t re-read. I love reading new books. They’re more exciting and I have no idea what’s going to happen. When I re-read a book, I always seem to remember at least some of what happens.

7.What is your favorite food to snack on while reading?

I don’t eat or drink anything while reading. I get so into the book I’m reading that I can’t do anything else.

8.Who would you dress as for a literary costume party?

Cath from Fangirl, Ginny from Harry Potter and Katniss from the Hunger Games are my top three
49241


9. If you could recommend one book to everyone reading this, what would it be?
That’s a tough one since everyone has different interests. I guess Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone.

10.What is your favorite food?

As a lover of food, this is tough. I’m going to say Macaroni and Cheese. It’s more of a “kids food” but I love it.
This made me hungry!!

10 Facts About Me!

  1. I have had two dogs, two cats, and one rooster/chicken in my lifetime
  2. My favorite colors are purple and blue
  3. I am going into High School next month

The Secret Life of a Book Blogger Tag!

Hello everyone! Yesterday. I spent a nice warm day outside most of the day. That’s the reason this post is coming later then usual. I apologized for once again not posting yesterday. Thank you My Tiny Obsessions for nominating me to do this book filled (*wink*) tag.

The Rules Are:

1. Thank the person who nominated you.

2. Answer the provided questions.

3. Nominate other book bloggers to do the award.

4. Notify them by linking (ping backing) their blog directly back to your post using the link button or by posting on a new post or about page.

———————————————————————————–

Below are the questions along with my answers:

How long have you been a blogger?

Almost 2 months (Tomorrow will be 2 months)

At what point do you think you’ll stop blogging?

Right now I don’t think I`ll stop blogging anytime soon. It may happen eventfully but not in the near future.

What’s the best thing about blogging?

There are many great things about blogging but I think the followers are one of them. They’re there for you no matter what and will always comment and like your posts 🙂

What’s the worst thing about blogging?

I think the worst thing is the pressure of posting every day and when you don’t, the guilt you feel.

How long does it take for you to find/create pictures for your posts?

Google images are normally what I go for and it takes 1-5 minutes depending on how many pictures. it only takes longer if I cant find the right pictures. The only picture I’ve made so far is my “What I`m Reading Wednesday`s one. That took only a couple of minutes.

Who is your book crush?

That’s tough. I currently don’t have one but my post recent was Quentin Jacobsen from Paper Towns by John Green.

What do you wear when you write your blog posts?

This is a strange question. I wear shorts, a t-shirt, and flip flops when in public and my “pajamas” when I`m just staying home and relaxing.

How long does it take you to prepare?

Normally I get an idea and just start typing but sometimes I have to write out things ahead of time. Normally no more then 10-15 minutes but that will change once school starts on September 1st.

How do you feel about the Book Blogger community?

The Book Blogger community is absolutely amazing and so supportive.

What should be done to achieve a successful blog?

This is another tough question to answer since every blog and definition is different. I would say a successful blog is one that interacts a lot with the community, posts as much as possible, and has quite a few viewers and/or followers.

Now its your turn!

Just copy and paste these questions below into your post! If you want, paste a blank template like this for your nominees and ask them to do the same so everyone can easily participate in this tag.

The Just For Fun Award (created by whereshappy)

Hello everyone! I finally have time to post! Today I am doing the Just For Fun Award. I have been nominated by @whereshappy. You can link your response back (ping back) or reblog her original post here: http://afunnythinghappenedwheniwaslearningmyself.com/2015/08/13/just-for-fun-i-made-a-blogging-award/comment-page-1/#comment-787. She would love to see how far her brand new award can travel.

Picture1

(Don’t forget to include the award in your post!)

Here are the rules:

1. Thank the person who has nominated you

2. Link back (Ping Back)  to the tag`s creators page (See above) or just reblog the original post.

3. Answer the questions given by nominator.

4. Create questions that are silly and fun.

5. Nominate anyone you like to participate, but think of people who have a good sense of humor and can play along.

6. This tag is just for fun and a way to get to know everyone.

7. As always, not participating or answering “no” is perfectly acceptable for me and everyone else.

Thank you @whereshappy for creating this fun tag and nominating me and everyone who read the post to participate.

Below are the questions given by my nominator and my responses:

Can you name one bad habit, of other people, that drives you crazy? Why does it bother you so much?

I absolutely don’t like it when people chew with their mouth open. Nobody needs to see that and its downright disgusting. Everyone shows off their food by accident every once in a while but there are people that do that all the time!

If you had to eat a rat how would you prepare it?

Well first of all, I would try not to eat it but maybe BBQ and then seasoning really well and finishing off with a ton of BBQ sauce. That just might make it worse though.

What was your favorite musical group in Junior High?

I may be in Junior High right now (*wink*) My favorite music group was and still partially is One Direction. 

What was the greatest invention of your lifetime? Why do you think that?

Electronics are at the top of the list. They help you connect with friends, family and people all over the world. It`s also good when you need some entertainment of course 🙂

What movie title would describe your life?

I had to honestly look up a title but Roller Coaster fits my life description. There are some pretty bad themed roller coaster movies so only the title applies.

Who would you name the worst actor/actress in Hollywood and why?

Another tough question.. No one comes to mind right now.

Do you still sleep with a teddy bear?

I`m not going to answer this one…

What is your go to song to sing in the shower?

I don’t sing a whole lot in the shower but when I do its normally a song I have stuck in my head.

Can you fake any accents?

British, Irish, and Australian. I do pretty terrible though. People at school tell me I can do a good Australian-Jamaican accent. I don’t know if that’s offensive or not.

Who is your celebrity crush?

That’s a tough question… I`ve had many celebrity crushes… Cameron Boyce on Disney Channel and Disney XD is pretty cute though lol.

What cinematic guilty pleasure do you hide from everyone?

My love of One Direction and my obsession with Minecraft.

What makes you feel young?

I am quite a bit younger then the majority of the bloggers on here. Spending time with my family helps me feel even younger 😀

What was the first concert you ever attended?

I am yet to attend any concerts sadly.

If you are reading a book and it is really terrible do you continue reading to the end, hoping that it gets better, or do you dump it right then and there?  (I always ask this of all my prey.)

If it`s that bad I just ditch it. Luckily I am very picky with my books so I rarely come across a book that’s bad.

I nominate:

Everyone that chooses to participate! Don’t forget to let your nominees know they have been nominated!

My questions for you:

  1.  What is one embarrassing moment you have experienced?
  2. What animal would you like to become and why?
  3. Have you ever thought of deleting your blog?
  4. If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
  5. What is the most unique food you have had?
  6. What is your least favorite food?
  7. Would you rather be sneezed on everywhere you went or coughed on by your teacher every time you got a good grade?
  8. What was one of your dream jobs that you had as a kid?
