Tags and Q&As| Liebster Award #2

Howdy peeps, today we will be doing another round for the Liebster Award. I was so shocked to learn that I had been nominated again, not once but twice. This time around I was nominated by Perplexing Purple and Ashley Marie. Thank you both so much, it truly means a lot to me. I will admit that this is going to be somewhat of a lengthy post, there are quite a lot of questions to answer. But I hope you enjoy, and maybe you will learn something new about me.

Liebster Award


Perplexing Purple’s Questions

What is your favorite color? Why?

Not long ago, I would have said turquoise. But with the recent changes to my room and creating the brand identity for this blog, I’m leaning more towards orange/coral.

Why did you start blogging?

My life was kind of at an impasse, I guess. With all of my health issues, I got stuck in this rinse and repeat cycle of living. I was basically going through the motions. I knew that I needed to change and writing has always been a big part of my life. Things just kind of fell into place and here I am.

What’s your favorite social media platform? Why?

I would have to choose Twitter hands down. I’ve met so many lovely people that way. I like Instagram but sometimes I feel like I’m fighting against the tide. The whole follow/unfollow game on there is ridiculous.

When you’re not blogging, what are you doing?

I’m usually at a doctor’s appointment or at physical therapy. Right now, I’m doing therapy three times a week for my ankle and hip. So some days are busier than others.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Still blogging?

That’s a really hard question. I would love to blog fulltime. I feel like things are finally coming together. So hopefully I’m healthy and happy and that’s really all I can wish for.

What’s your favorite song? Why do you like it?

That’s an easy one, it’s Falling by John Park. The song is in Korean but oh my it’s so pretty, the lyrics, his voice, the music video. If I ever feel stressed and want to feel like I’m floating on white fluffy clouds for four minutes then I’ll play this song lol.

What is your favorite holiday and why?

I actually don’t celebrate holidays. As a family, we just treasure each day and make that day a celebration. I do have fond memories around this time of year for Thanksgiving. It’s the time of year that my family had off from work so my grandmother would make a big shindig and we would have a lot of food. Having the family together was very important to her.

How does blogging impact your mental health?

It has definitely been a big help so far. I think one of the biggest issues with Mental Health Awareness is that it’s not a constant topic of conversation. There are some days when I just feel mentally and physically worn out but on those days I know it’s time for me to take a break.

What time do you usually wake up? Go to sleep?

I feel kind of embarrassed because it varies so much lol. My plan is to talk about this in a blog post soon because I honestly haven’t been sleeping that well. It’s gotten a bit better the last few nights but for awhile I thought my insomnia had come back.

What’s your favorite meal?

Tacos or Mexican

What is your least favorite thing about blogging?

Nothing to do with blogging per se but the business side of blogging, I guess. Everyone that I’ve met in the blogging community is amazing but there are some scammers out there. And they will try to sell or charge you what someone else will gladly do for free.


Ashley Marie’s Questions

What is one place you haven’t been that is on the top of your bucket list?

This may sound kind of funny, but I really want to go to Gatlinburg, Tennesee. We’ve had so many friends and family members that have gone. Some of them go every year and it just seems like it would be right up my alley.

What is the most daring experience you’ve ever had?

This is a hard one because I’m pretty much a boring grandma now lol. I guess spotlight tag at night on my friend’s farm. It may not sound that daring but when you’re alone in the woods with a flashlight hiding from your friends it’s a different experience lol.

What is your biggest accomplishment?

I think it would be going through hardships, trauma, and heartbreak but still having a sense of humor and keeping a smile on my face. Life can definitely build character, I just don’t want it to make me bitter.

What’s your biggest fear?

I think it would be letting down or losing the trust of a loved one. I think everyone has some sort of fear of dying, but living and knowing that I’ve hurt someone scares me more.

What’s a hidden talent you have?

I’m not sure if it’s necessarily a talent, but I can have full blown out conversations in my sleep. Multiple times my mom has come in my room and she’ll start talking to me because she thinks I’m awake. Later on, if she asks me about that conversation I’ll have no memory of it.

What’s an activity, craft or sport that you want to learn how to do?

If I had the time, I would love to sit down and learn to read music again. I played the cello from 6th grade to 10th grade in school. A few years back, I bought a guitar because cellos are ridiculously expensive. To my shock and awe, I can’t read music anymore. It’s like the knowledge has completely left me. I guess it is really true that if you don’t use it, you lose it.


My Nominees

This time around, I’m going to bend the rules a little bit, because I don’t want to nominate someone that has already done this. So you, yes, I’m talking you. If you haven’t been nominated for the Liebster Award yet, then I nominate you today.

    I’m so glad blogging has helped you with your mental health! Also Twitter is my favourite platform – I kind of have a love/hate relationship with Instagram because of that very reason.

    I must say I really dislike the follow/unfollow thing too. They do it on insta as well.

      It’s so annoying isn’t it? And I really don’t understand the logic. How do they gain followers that way?
