Liebster Award!

Hi friends,
     Today is an exciting day for me, because the generous Katie of Emilade, which is a really cool DIY blog, has nominated me for the Liebster Award! I hadn't even heard of this award before a couple weeks ago, but I think it is an amazing project to help share blogs. Thank you so much for the nomination!

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their blog
  • Answer all of their questions
  • Nominate 11 bloggers with under 200 followers
  • Cannot nominate the person who nominated you
  • List 11 questions of your choice for your nominees to answer
  • Inform the nominees of their nomination
  • Provide nominees with a link back to your post for more info

Katie's questions:
1.  What's your favorite animal?
Ah, I love so many animals. If I had to choose I'd probably pick an elephant. 
2.  Do you have any pets?
Yes! I have 2 dogs, a cat, and a corn snake.
3.  What's your favorite quote?
"I carry your heart with me(i carry it in my heart)" from my favorite poem by E.E. Cummings
4.  Favorite childhood memory?
This is hard, too. Good questions, Katie! I guess it'd be the time my dad, brother, and I went hiking in Montana and got really close to a family of bears without any bear spray. It was scary in the moment, but my dad loves telling the story, which makes me happy. 
5.  What's your biggest goal in life?
I want to be happy. On a less serious note, I'd like to live to be 150 years old :P 
6.  What are 3 interesting facts about yourself?
I mismatch my socks on purpose. 
I am a feminist.
I love learning.
7.  Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?
Hopefully I will have a successful career as a therapist, while working on/finished with my PhD, and happily married to my girlfriend. We'd probably be talking about how we can start a family, too. i don't know where all the money's going to come from to fund this life, haha.
8.  Do you have any siblings?
I have a brother and a step brother.
9.  Have you read any good books lately?
I'm currently reading The Ocean at the End of the Lane and Until I Find You. I'd highly suggest reading House of Leaves and Who's Afraid of Virginia WoolfThe latter is a play, so I don't think it's supposed to be underlined but whatever. 
10.  Who's your celebrity crush?
Male: Johnny Depp or Peter Dinklage
Female: Christina Hendricks
11.  Why did you start blogging?
The summer can get boring and this was a fun way to attempt being productive.

Now for my nominees!
Considering they must have under 200 followers, I'm mainly going off of the amount of followers they have on Bloglovin', but paying attention to the followers from other outlets. If I've made a mistake and you don't fit the qualifications, sorry!
I was an Orientation Leader at my college, so I have a whole arsenal of ice-breaker questions. Lucky for my nominees, the nomination rule only wants me to ask 11. 
  1. What's your favorite part about blogging?
  2. What's your favorite bad joke?
  3. What do you have a passion for?
  4. What is your dream career?
  5. If you had a brick what would you do with it?
  6. What is your biggest pet peeve?
  7. What is your favorite book?
  8. If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
  9. Take a moment to appreciate yourself. What is one of your best qualities?
  10. Who is your hero?
  11. What is your favorite movie?
     Again, thanks for the nomination and opportunity to share some cool blogs with my readers. I think this award is a wonderful idea. Nominees, your blogs are awesome, and I hope you accept my nomination!
