De Liebster Award

  So I was nominated for this award by Jeannie at One Wish Short of Paradise. Which is cool, I'm glad she enjoys my blog ^_^ Her friendship means a lot to me!

Some basic facts about the Liebster Award. Liebster means dearest in German. It's meant to highlight newer bloggers. Anyone with less than 200 follorwers. Some fun thoughts about what I could find about it's origins. It was original spread to 5 people(these things interest me)and there were no questions involved. But it's cool, so I'm still gonna do it!

Here are the basic rules to the game.

  • Each person must post 11 things about themselves. 
  • Answer the questions the nominator asked, and create 11 questions for your nominees to answer.
  • Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
  • Go to their page and tell them.
  • No tag-backs. (You tagged back! I'm telling mom!)  

11 things about my self will either be way too hard or way too easy. Depending on what I feel like sharing today. (I'm not good at sharing things about myself)

1. Surprise! I do LOTS of theater! (You would never know that, because I never ever write about it on my blog. Right? (If you didn't get it, that was a little bit sarcastic; but! It's such an important part of who I am that I have to right it down which is something you may not have actually known.)

2. I strive to live my life like a 4 year old in all but dependency, but my mom is so awesome that when I do achieve a 4 year old's dependency she'll still take care of me. (Also, I try to avoid a 4 year old's hygiene)

3. I love people. I talking to them, I love sitting away from people just listening to them. I love sitting so far away from people that I can just watch them. I love hugging them, I love just being near people, I love watching people do stupid things, I love watching people astound me, I love when sometimes I see a girl and I'm literally dumbstruck by how gorgeous she is(happens more often than you'd think!)

4. I love playing dress up, either in costumes or just getting dressed really nice. I love looking good. When I dress up fancy I look in the mirror everytime and say, well flinkers Justin you look good

5. I enjoy making up swear/curse/interjection/expletive words.

6. I talk to myself. A LOT. I talk to myself in different accents(that's when it gets embarrassing because then it's out loud) Sometimes I have conversations with myself, which also merits responding out loud at times. My brain never stops going.

7. I'm thinking always. Unless I'm exhausted, in shock, or doing something that completely deadens my brain(like video games. Oh blessed video games without you I would go crazy)

8. I HATED English class, which is weird because I love reading, I've now learned I love writing, and I'm a perfectionist so you think I'd enjoy knowing all the rules so that I don't look a fool in front of other people.

9. I am a deeply emotional person but unless you're incredibly close to me you may never actually see it other than when I'm on stage.

10. It's a big thing if I cry more than one tear. I can count the times I've shed more than one tear in the last 5 years on one hand.

11. I hate normal swear words, not because I'm offended by them but because they make people look stupid. People use them wrong! It's annoying! Swear words are expletive because they are words of power! But if you don't care about the holiness of sex WHY do you use the f word? What does it matter that you're referring to planting seed?! (Just so you know, when I hear the f word used I automatically insert the phrase planting seed...if I ever laugh at you for using the f word. You now know why) People have cheapened swear words to the point where they are no longer offensive so that makes their use obnoxious, unintelligent and grammatically incorrect. That is why I feel they make people look stupid. Also, I enjoy the fact that whenever people hear me swear(especially if I ever swear at them in anger) people are shocked and astounded by the way I use them.

Now it's time for Jeannie's questions for me!

If you could be an animal you would be?
Eagle, I LOVE EAGLES. Also, Dragon would be more preferred over than. Second Gryphon, then eagle. Eagles in my mind represent power, beauty, grace, and freedom.
2. Why do you blog?
Because everyone else was doing it! (Seriously, that's why I started my blog) I continued because I had things on my mind. Remember the I'm always thinking thing?(see #7) This gives me a place to put those thoughts down so that I can stop obsessing over them in my head. 
3. Favorite piece of furniture (and it can't be your bed!)?
My bed actually isn't my favorite piece of furniture. I don't enjoy sleeping I wish I didn't have to do it. I like my couches though, they're comfy. 
4. What is your signature dance move?
Probably the Tango...Okay, maybe not. I'm gonna go with pelvic thrust.
5.Character in a movie/book you related to most?
Can I go with all of them? I read books because I see myself in the main character. From Bilbo's curmudgeonness and desire for a warm bed and bacon to Rand Al'Thor's desire to just do good despite the fact that he's destined to be the world's destruction and, in his death, it's savior. (The Hobbit and the Wheel of Time series)
6.Number one place you never want to go?
I can't think of anywhere I never want to go. There's beauty in all places and in all things. All of it is God's creation.
7. Worst fashion mistake of all time?
My everyday wardrobe? Maybe? Haha, I don't give a lick to fashion, if I can say to myself before I go out I look good then it doesn't matter what other people think of me. 
8. Favorite word?
THERE ARE TOO MANY GOOD ONES! I love words, there are so many fantastic words in this world. That's why I love theater, poetry, and most especially literature! The way some authors can paint entire worlds with just words astounds me! I love all words and Shakespeare was perhaps the greatest wordsmith of all time. 
9. Guilty pleasure? 
Theater! Haha, I devote myself to it every day of every year. If I could be happy without theater I would have so much more time to devote myself to more "productive" things, but theater is my life and I would want it no other way. 
10. Thoughts on breakfast?
Don't enjoy it, I love love love love love love breakfast foods. I don't like eating in the morning though.
11. If you were a tree, what tree would you be?
I'd be the burning bush? Is that blasphemous? Seriously though, I love fire. But I would be an out of place giant one sitting atop a lonely mountain with a view of the entire world.

Now it's YOUR 11 questions!
1. Favorite mystical/mythical animal?
2. Favorite place
3. Most random childhood memory
4. What is something about yourself that you're proud of?
5. What is something awesome about yourself that I may not know?
6. Favorite number.
7. What are your feelings on the matter of cheese? 
8. Favorite book or series, if not possible favorite genre.
9. A quote you love?
10. Someone you look up to in history
11. Someone you admire in present day?

So... I don't read 11 blogs. But here are the blogs I DO read.
Jeffe at Jeff's Thoughts and Stories
Jenfer at Only a Little Sugar Coated
Mellen at One in a Mellen
Mary at For What We Can Not Understand
(I also read Jeannie Leigh Jones, whom was mentioned in the beginning of this blog. But I can't "tag her back" I'll get in trouble.)


  1. You totally broke the rules. You're supposed to write on my blog to tell me I've been chosen.

  2. Well...all of them are also frequent readers of my blog, including you.

  3. I did it. I want a gold star on my forehead.

  4. How about confetti vomit in your hair?!
