Blue Sky Tag

Hey, everyone! I was tagged by Tessa Megan from Writer’s Ink to complete the Blue Sky Tag! Fun Fact: I was her first follower ever so it’s really exciting to see how much she and her blog has grown. :)

2.Answer their 11 questions
3.Tag 11 people
4.Give them 11 questions to answer

Questions And Answers

  1. Do you have any imaginary friends? – No, I don’t but I sometimes talk to myself if that counts. XD
  2. Have you ever been to the beach or would like to go? – I LOVE going to the beach! It’s so relaxing and beautiful. I’ve been so many times but it’s still amazing. :)
  3. Have you ever entered a writing contest? – I have entered a couple of writing contests but I have never won. One of these days, I’ll write something amazing. ;)
  4. If possible would you go into writing as a career or will it just be a hobby for you? – It depends on the type of writing. I could totally blog for the rest of my life! I’m not sure if creative writing could be my career but I think that if (and when) I actually become serious about it, I can re-evaluate.
  5.  Do you like to sing? – I do like to sing! I am in an acappella group at my school which is super fun (but a lot of work). The people are so nice and encouraging but singing isn’t my forte. It is fun though!
  6. Do you listen to music while you write? – Sometimes. Like right now, I’m listening to music while I’m typing this (If It’s Just Me by Hunter Hayes). But for homework writing, I don’t listen to music. I think sometimes the music can affect and change the feel of the writing. Hopefully, that makes sense. :P :)
  7. What book(s) have you recently read? – Besides books for school, I haven’t read anything. But! I received two books from my very best friend so I will read those soon!
  8. Do you like country music? – YES! And my friends hate country music! Can you believe that? My favorite country artist is Hunter Hayes.
  9. What’s your favorite movie? – Uhh… Let me think. Oh! I really like A Royal Christmas but that’s a Christmas movie so… I don’t know. :)
  10.  Have you read A Long Way Home by Saroo Brierley or heard of it? – No and no! I’ll have to check it out though!
  11.  Do you watch or read the news? – I don’t watch the news too often and I don’t read the news either.

Real Neat Blog Award

Hey, everybody! I was nominated for another award; this time it was the Real Neat Blog Award. I’m giving a huge thank you to Ashley from Quintessential Habits for nominating me for this award! I had a lot of fun with it and I’m sure she did too. Check out her blog here and her version of the award here. :)

real-neat-blog-award

rules

The ‘rules’ of the Real Neat Blog Award are: (feel free not to act upon them if you don’t have time; or don’t accept awards; etc.):

  5. Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog etc.)

Questions and Answers

  1. What is your perfect ice cream sundae? – This is probably the most interesting question that I’ve ever been asked but my perfect ice cream sundae would include sprinkles, warm cookie bits, and vanilla ice cream.
  2. Who has been the most influential person in your life? – I know this sounds cliche but, the most influential person in my life is God. He has been the One who shaped me into the person I am today! When I became a Christian, my life took an 180-degree turn. God love and mercy has influenced me to be a more loving, hard-working person.
  3. Where do you go to relax? Or what do you do? – When I need to relax, I normally go to my room to write or read. Sometimes, I’ll light a candle (I love the Hello Beautiful Bath & Body Works 3-wick candle) or play some great music (here are my recent favorite songs). The lighting in my room is beautiful in the mornings! It’s relaxing just looking at how the light shines in my room.
  4. Would you rather it be really hot, or really cold? – I would rather be really cold than to be really hot. Just think about it; if you’re cold you can always put on scarfs, fuzzy socks, and hats, but if you’re hot, you can’t put on anything to cool you down.
  5. When was the last time it snowed? – It snowed last Friday! It was SO pretty!
  6. What was the last movie you saw? – The last movie I saw was the 2007 version of Nancy Drew. I remember watching this movie when I was younger. I liked it then, and I still like it now! 
  7. Where would you go on a dream vacation? – I would love to go to London, England for a couple of weeks! There are so many places to visit there and in England in general.

Q&A – Answers

Hey everyone! So last week, I made a post asking for questions to be featured in this Q&A post and you delivered! So without further ado, my answers to your questions. :)
(Sorry it took me so long!)

————————————————————————-

From HappyAlex: “What is your favorite season?”  ~ My favorite season has to be fall. I love the way the leaves crunch beneath my feet and the smell of the pumpkin pie and apple cider. :) Definitely my favorite.

From HappyAlex: “What is your favorite thing about blogging?” ~ My favorite part about blogging would have to be the community. The people here on WordPress and on other blogging sites are all so kind and encouraging and I love that.

From HappyAlex: “Favorite seasonal holiday e.g Christmas/Easter etc?” ~ Christmas has always been my favorite holiday. I love having the family together and the cold, crisp days that come with the feeling of Christmas. But my favorite part about Christmas is decorating the tree together and remembering all of the memories and events from past Christmases.

From HappyAlex: “Favorite way to relax?” ~ For me baking or playing piano are some of the best ways to relax. Just being able to do something and get my mind off of whatever is stressing me out is therapeutic for me.

From HappyAlex: “Favorite book?” ~ My all time favorite book is I’d Tell You I Love You But Then I’d Have To Kill You by Ally Carter. It’s the first book in the Gallagher Girl series which is the series that really got me motivated to write. I highly recommend. :)

From Kody C. Krady: “Who is your favorite Bible character?” ~ My favorite Bible character is Esther. Esther cared for her people and showed great courage when she asked the King to save her people.

From Kody C. Krady: “Who is your favorite person in history and why?” ~ I have always admired Joan of Arc. I think that she was very brave to go to war for France and for standing up for her country. Even though people didn’t like her, she will always be remembered as a saint.

From HannahDestiny27: “What’s your favorite thing about being homeschooled?” ~ My favorite part of being homeschool is being at home. :) I like being able to spend time with and have lunch with my mom.

From Hannah Destiny27: “If you could choose any one new thing to learn, what would you choose?” ~ One thing that I’ve always wanted to learn is sign language. One of my closest friends is learning sign language and she loves it. I think it’s a great thing to know.

From AVeryAwkwardBlogger: “Who’s your favorite pop star?” ~ My favorite pop star is Taylor Swift. Though I like her older songs better, her newer pop songs are pretty cool too.

From AVeryAwkwardBlogger: “What would you do if you could know absolutely anything for 5 minutes?” ~ I would probably eat food and text my friends. Or read one of my favorite books during those 5 free minutes. :) Anything to get my mind off of school for the moment.

From AlaynaFayth: “Why did you begin blogging?” ~ I had been thinking about blogging for a while before I actually started and one of the reasons was because I wasn’t sure if I would have enough time to continue blogging. At some point, I noticed that a lot of my friends had started blogs and I decided that it was time for me to enter the world of blogging.

From AlaynaFayth: “Would you suggest homeschooling as an option for someone debating where to place their children for education? ” ~ Homeschooling was definitely the best thing for me but it might not be great for everyone. I suggest thinking about what kind of environment your child would thrive in. Is he more of an introvert or extrovert? Would he be motivated enough to complete his work? What kinds of things could he do to still get him out of the house? There are also lots of different programs online to ensure that your child is schooled. I hope this helped and if you have anymore questions, let me know. :)

From AlaynaFayth: “Who is your idol?” ~ I wouldn’t really say “idol” but someone who inspires me a lot would be my aunt. She is a writer just like me and has always been so encouraging. She is just an amazing person and I want to be just like her.

Thank you so much for all of the questions!
My question for you is, if you could be any cupcake flavor, which one would you be?
Let me know in the comments! :)

Any Questions?

Hey everyone! I just wanted to write a quick to post to let you know that I am thinking about doing a Q&A post. If any of you have questions for me, I would love to answer them! Just let me know in the comments and I’ll get to them in a future post. :)

P.S. Here is a quote from Shakespeare that I love. :)
