A Bunch Of Awards (Am I Really This Popular??)

Hi guys. So I’m popular now.

Let me explain how this happened (and no I’m not actually popular and will never be, thank you very much).

I got nominated for awards…5 times???

OHMYGOODNESS GUYS. I FEEL APPRITIATED IN MY ART FORM HAHAH.

I was tagged for the Liebster Award by four lovely ladies: Faye, EmSarah, and Olivia.

And then I got tagged AGAIN for this award I’ve never heard of, The New Blogger Award (which makes me extra special because I’m new) by Starling!

THANKS GUYS!! It’s always kind of crazy to get mentions like this from blogs you read all the time so you guys kinda made my day. (Or days. Yanno, I’m far too technical.)

About the Liebster Award…

I think most of you know how this award works, but if you don’t here’s the jist.

1. Give credit where credit is due (Thanks to Faye, Em, Sarah, & Starling!)

2. Give 11 facts about yourself.

So I have to say 44 facts about me????

Just kidding. I won’t bore you to death.

3. Answer the questions given to you.

I originally was going to do all the questions but that was waaay too much so I’ve condensed each person’s award down to just five questions. Hopefully I’m somewhat entertaining???

4. Nominate 11 people.

umm, more on that later.

OK WE’VE SPENT WAAY TOO MUCH TIME IN THE INTRO LETS GET TO IT!

(btw, Sarah, I got tagged five times. three more than you. Guess who’s special now?? AHAHAHAA!!)
(ehem)

Faye’s Questions

What is your favorite non-fiction book? Why is it your favorite?

Do Hard Things by Alex & Brett Harris because WOAH THIS BOOK. Every teenager, Christian or not, needs to get a copy of this. I’m a proud rebelutionary and strive to break the ‘teenage’ mold like Brett and Alex have. Brett is also a founder of YWW and I got to meet him sajkjdhekahlkdeh????

If you could go into any imaginary book land, where would you go? Why?

Can Ninjago count as a book?? The Dark Island Trilogy was a book series!! NINJAGO BOOK LAND LET’S GO!!

What are your top 5 favorite songs?

  1. I Wanna Go Out – American Authors
  2. O’Lord – Lauren Daigle
  3. Reckless Love – Native Kingdom
  4. My Lighthouse – Rend Collective
  5. La La Land – Demi Lovato (old song haha)

My Spotify account is pretty awesome because my favorites change just about every week. You can go follow my playlists because, you know, they’re fabulous. Plus I have one with four hours of Ninjago on it??

What is one thing you can praise God for right now?

MUSIC. Thank you God for music! Thank you for Spotify! Not so much for this ad playing right now but thanks anyway!!

(honestly forgot I just mentioned this in the last question *facepalm*)

Em’s Questions


What is your favorite quote?

Ohhhhh… there are WAAAY too many. Like I’m having such a hard time right now. I think I have to cheat and just say as many as possible without being annoying…

  • “ONE IS THE LONLIEST NUMBER!! TWO TICKETS TO PARADISE!! THREE TIMES THE LADY!! FOOOOOOREVER YOUNG!!!”
  • “We are so hooped.”
  • “Bless her heart, we do not like her.”
  • “Pft, I wasn’t even a part of your life, how could I ruin it? I wasn’t even there.”

I must admit, something I’m fond of saying at the moment is “I’m smart!” especially if I just proved myself to be much less than smart.

dareth is me
(dareth just might be my spirit animal)

If you could only write/draw in one color for the rest of your life, which color would you chose (besides black)?

Dark grey?

*cops out of question*

If you could describe yourself in one word, what word would you chose (because it’s such a good question )?

Unpredictable.

treadmills

If you could do anything with your life, what would you do?

…be a ninja.

(look, man, I never said I was going to be serious here. you’re the one who clicked and read half the post.)

Sarah’s Questions


If you could be an element (fire, water, air, earth) which would you choose?

UM EXCUSE WHERE’S ICE AND LIGHTNING?

*stills herself* Ok, to choose out of just the four above, I have to go water. I mean you don’t need water bottles anymore and you don’t have to pay a water bill?? Sign me up.

Heroes or villains?

Ninja.

(is that a valid answer?)

 

Who are the three fictitious characters you wish the author would have burned at the stake?

OHH THIS IS FUN

  1. Draco Malfoy (HP) because duh he’s a jerk.
  2. Peeta (HG) because bless his heart we do not like him.

What is something that makes you laugh EVERY SINGLE TIME you see it?

What is the one word that describes your life?

BEQUEATH

yeah don’t ask me what that word means.

I don’t necessarily have a word for my life and can’t really think of one because honestly it will change every day.

Starling’s Questions


When’s your birthday?

All I want to disclose is that it’s in MaRcH. Sorry if you wanted specifics 😉

Favorite type of candy?

OK HAVE YOU GUYS EVER EXPERIENCED THE WONDERFULNESS OF THE FISH OF SWEDISH DECENT?? It is red-dye covered, sugary goodness that’s bound to kill me one day but for now I’ll just keep drowning the bags one by one.

Do you have any pets?

I used to! Truman was an 18-year-old kitty cat and he died in November. I wish I could get more cats and be a crazy cat lady but I’m not allowed to?? As soon as I can, I’m getting myself a couple of kitties >:)

What are your hobbies?

There’s an about page for this but I’ll do a quick summary anyway.

  • blogging
  • writing
  • acting/voice acting
  • professional shower singing
  • fangirling over ninjago
  • eating swedish fish

Do you like blogging?

I… think so….?? I mean, I hope…. if I didn’t, why would I keep doing it??

Olivia’s Questions


Do you prefer big bookstores or small, one-of-a-kind ones?

Ok please don’t kill me, but I’ll take Barns & Noble over a local place anytime. Big bookstores are more likely to have books I’m looking for or that I’ve heard about, and big stores have MORE BOOKS to feast my eyes on.

Who is your inspiration?

My blogging inspiration is Charis Rae (like I’ve said a billion times sheesh.) My writing inspiration is Gail Carson Levine.

What does a typical day in your life look like?

Wake up. Time with Jesus. Get ready for the day. Walk/run while watching Ninjago (I actually do this now guys. It’s a daily thing). School. Eat lunch. Write. Eat dinner. Do other stuff. Sleep.

Libraries or bookstores?

IM BROKE HAHA LIBRARIES.

What is your favorite month of the year, and why?

September. It’s fall. It’s not quite hot and not quite cold. Starbucks fall drinks come out. It’s just nice in general.

Also it’s the month we always go to Disney so I’m a tad bit biased.


WOW YOU REACHED THE END OF THE POST CONGRATS!

I’m impressed. Most people don’t like reading tags/awards. Kudos to you.

This is the point where I’m supposed to nominate people to do the tags but honestly?? Most bloggers have already done the Liebster!  So I’m not going to search for 37 quality blogs that haven’t done it because, um, that would be incredibly hard.

But! If you haven’t and you really would like to do it or have nothing to post next week and you’re in desperate need of an idea, I formally award you with Le Awarde Liebster! *tries to curtsey like a queen* *falls on face instead*

here are your glorious questions!

  1. How do you feel about spicy food?
  2. What weird talents do you have?
  3. Tell about an annual family tradition.
  4. Coffee, Tea, Hot Chocolate, or NONE OF THE ABOVE?
  5. Star Wars or Marvel?
  6. Would you rather take a trip to Hogwarts or Narnia?
  7. Week-long cruise in the Caribbean, or 10-day stay in a log cabin in the mountains?
  8. Pen, pencil, or computer? Or do you prefer something else…?
  9. What’s your favorite day of the week and why?
  10. Where’s your favorite place to eat?
  11. Do you like the Oxford Comma rule? (eggs, flour, and bacon vs eggs, flour and bacon)

HAHA THERE ARE 1500 WORDS IN THIS POST. Now I’m really going to wrap it up.

So thanks again to my… my nominators?… and thanks for reading. Do yall realize that it’s been almost a month since WWF launched? Crazy, it feels like forever ago!

OK ABBY TIME TO GO.

ok bye for real this time.

  1. For your information, I just got tagged twice again in the last few days, so no, you haven’t beaten me. smug smirk Sorry, sweetheart.

    And kudos for Studio C. XD

    And I’m ignoring that jab at Peeta. as icicles and brimstone shoot from her withering glare

    1. For YOUR information, this is my very first month of blogging on WWF, and I got another tag this week so technically I got 6 nominations?? Beat that.

      dies laughing peeta is…. not very efficient in the games. all he does is get hurt so Katniss can kiss him/have a mental breakdown -_-

      1. Dang it. Well I

        Yeah, I can’t beat that.

        BUT WHAT ABOUT THE QUARTER QUELL? And in the Capitol, when he broke the mutt’s neck with his bare, handcuffed hands? And flipped Cato over his head? NOT EFFICIENT? snorts How dare you. (Okay, okay, though, I actually kinda agree. He was better in the books.)

  2. Thanks for doing this! 🙂 Reading your answers was so entertaining. I love tag posts ‘cause ya get to know the person better. BUT…NO, NO, NO!! PEETA burned at the stake?!?!? You need to sort out your priorities. (Harry Potter quote.😂) Could you be.. gasps Team Gale?!

  3. I love this so much, Abby! And I love that you took the time to answer questions from each nominator. In that you took the time to answer questions from all of us, I will gladly take the time to comment a small bit on each set of questions. ❤

    My questions:
    First, I would like to say that I “Do Hard Things” is indeed phenomenal! I suppose Lego Ninjago can count… Lol! And YES to your top 5 songs (I am going to have to look up the first and the one from LaLa Land).

    Em’s questions:
    A further confirmation that we will count Lego Ninjago as a “book land”. Your love for ninjas is apparent. Also, these really are great questions, Em!

    Sara’s questions:
    Even more proof for your love of ninjas and further confirmation that Ninjago is a great land to live in. I must say, Draco Malfoy is a frustrating character, but burned at the steak? In the words of Ron Weasley, “It’s only Malfoy!” And as for Peeta, I am going to pretend you didn’t say that… Lol (though I guess I should be happy you didn’t say Katniss….)!
    Just curious, who’s your third character (or did you intentionally leave it blank?)? Just as long as it isn’t anyone from the Lord of the Rings or Hobbit, I am good. 😉
    And yay for Studio C! I love them SO MUCH!!! ❤

    Starling’s questions:
    I am so sorry to hear about your cat! It is the worse thing ever to lose a beloved pet. 😦
    I am not a huge fan of Sweedish Fish, but the rest of my family LOVES them! And I personally loved your description: “red-dye covered, sugary goodness that’s bound to kill me one day.”

    Olivia’s questions:
    You mentioned that you go to Disney World in September. Just curious, have you gone to Night of Joy? (It is my dream to go one year…).

    Overall, I loved this post. It’s always fun to learn a little bit more about the person behind the blog.

    1. YAY YAY YAY ok let me comment on your comments 😉

      Draco deserves it, kk? I have a strong love for Harry and Draco’s just a jerk and I want to push him in a well and have him rethink his life because he’s MEAN. Of course that would be mean of me to do but… it would be worth it. Everyone loves Peeta xD I don’t get it, he isn’t useful at all besides driving everyone crazy and saying cute stuff like ‘You love me. True?’ And haha that was totally a typo I couldn’t think of one more. I have to go fix that now lol.

      STUDIO C YES!! 😀

      It’s ok 🙂 he was super old and in pain so it was good for him to go, you know? WHY WOULD YOU NOT LIKE THE SWEEDISH FISH?? IT’S WAX AND SUGAR WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE??

      I WANT TO!! But you know it was so crazy, one day we were walking in a resort hotel and guess who walked by??? MANDISA OH MMYY GOODNESS. AND I DIDNT EVEN KNOW UNTIL MY DAD SAID SOMETHING xD We wanted to go this year because we were there at the time and TobyMac was preforming but we didn’t for some reason? idk.

      I know, right? Tags are so fun to read 🙂 thanks for nominating meeeeeeeee

      1. Of course! I am so glad you took up the “challenge” of the nominee.
        To be honest, I feel bad for Draco at the end of it all. He made a huge mistake and I truly believe he realized it at the end. 😦
        I can understand your opinions on Peeta. I feel the same exact way about Gale and can’t understand why people would love his character so much (I mean, he is only there to poignantly follow Katniss around and constantly be jealous of Peeta…Honest confession: I haven’t read the book and JUST watched the movies. So I barely have any say!).

        As for Sweedish fish, I simply am not a fan of candy. If I am going to eat sugar, I would rather have a bowl of ice cream… or a cupcake! ❤

        That is so cool that you saw Mandisa (even if it was unintentionally!). Maybe one day you’ll make it to Night of Joy…

      2. Pft, he’s still Draco, and he’s still mean.

        Gale is pretty dumb, too. You’re right and then at the end SPOILER SPOILER what he does to prim noooooooo!!! He literally destroys the very cause of the series, of the rebellion, everything!! Same tho haven’t read the books 😦

        Ohh I see. Yeah that’s true. Cake beats candy 100%!

        Haha ikr? I feel bad that I totally ignored her but then again I wouldn’t want to have been an obsessive fangirl, that would have been frightening xD That would be so so fun to go to 🙂

  4. *even if you didn’t notice until too late. I’m not quite sure why I used “unintentionally”. Lol! Either way it would’ve been unintentional. 🙂

  5. Abby 😀 😀 😀 I never EVER get bored reading your posts! They make me smile, laugh, shed an inner Jay tear now and then, and encourage me to get back to the reading and writing I love (and maybe the odd show, or just, you know, Ninjago!!). I don’t even know where to start! I’ll just jump to Swedish Fishhhhhhhhies!! I love gummy candies (all kinds), but these have been a favorite for a long long time. I know they are basically Sour Patch Kids without the sour (lol!), but I love ’em anyway. 😀 Give me somethin’ sweet ta chew!! Especially when I’m writing, I need something to chew to keep from gritting my teeth in excitement (probably not a good thing). Umm…. the only character I really want to make “pay” right now is Willoughby!! I just finished reading an annotated Sense & Sensibility (eyeroll). I enjoyed the book (mostly), but when I got to the chapter where Willoughby shows up, and “attempts” to “apologize” for being such a total loser, I gave up on him completely. I have never read a more insincere apology. All those words, with only one goal: make himself look good, make them like him again, pretend like his “suffering” (???!!!!) makes him worthy of their pity and forgiveness. NO!! He did not regret his actions, or make any promise to abandon his bad habits, and in general he just — GACK! I’ve never wanted to spew something at a character before!! Anyway…. enough of my drama. You’re writing good stuff here, Abby! Can you tell I get into well-written stories? Go, ninja-girl, go!!

    1. SWEEDISH. FISH. ive never thought of them being like sour patch kids but yes I totally see it!

      I think I have to read Sense & Sensibility for school but I’ll put it off for as long as possible. 😉😉 but I think I’ll rage a lot at that guy 😡

      lol I think I can with how much u want to strangle Willoughby 😆
