The Liebster Award
First off, I want to thank J of the Tumbling Words blog for this lovely blogging award. And I apologize for taking so long to put up my post.
I’ll be posting the rules and nominating some people after I answer the questions from Tumbling Words.
Who is your favourite book character and why?
This is a maddeningly difficult question to answer, and I’m honestly not sure I can. There are so many characters I adore. But, if I absolutely had to choose one, it would be Elizabeth from The Paper Bag Princess. She’s smart, resourceful, strong, and, importantly, knows her own worth.
Are you a ‘cup half full’ or ‘cup half empty’ person?
Usually, I’m a “cup half full” person. At least, I try to be. Whatever it is, it can almost always get worse. Why dwell on that?
Who scares you more, Trump or Clinton?
Definitely Trump. And even more than him? His utterly terrifying running mate, Pence.
What is your favourite comfort food?
Um…all of it? Okay, if I’m eating my feelings, it’s all about the Coke and salt and vinegar chips.
Which piece of music lifts your spirits?
My go-to pick me up song is, “Send Me On My Way” by Rusted Root.
What is your middle name?
Lynn. After an uncle who died before I was born.
What is your favourite quote?
“Trust your story.” – Neil Gaiman
Do you believe there is something after death?
Yes-ish. But I’m not sure if that’s if it’s a legitimate heartfelt belief or the need for comfort.
Which period in history would you most like to live in?
Honestly, I’m pretty well down with this one. I like the comforts of the modern age. Though, I’ll admit that when I was little, I wanted to live during the Revolutionary War. But I also wanted to be one of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s sisters and a knight during the medieval period. Before I actually realized what the living during those times involved.
Who/what do you love most in your life?
I’m really insanely lucky in that I have so many people to love. My husband, my kids, my parents, sibs, nieces, nephews, and my amazing friends who are so much more than friends – they’re family, too. And my cats.
What makes you cry, and why?
Oh, you know…everything. No. Really. People being kind to one another. People being awful to each other. Missing loved ones who’ve died. Books. Movies. Happiness. Stress. Sometimes filling out financial aid forms for college’ll do it. Oh, and anger. I often cry when I’m angry which only infuriates me more.
What you have to do (but only if you want to):
Nominate up to 11 other bloggers yourself (preferably those with fewer than 500 followers, this is more of a newbie award). Provide those bloggers with 11 questions of your own for them to answer. Don’t forget to put the Liebster Award sticker on your blog!
And here are the 11 questions for you!
