Hello Humans of the internet! A few weeks ago the very kind Miss Beauty Guru nominated me for the Liebster award. If you are not currently following her, you should be because her posts are really good. She talks about beauty products, make-up, and clothing. Personally, I really like her posts about eye shadow pallets, but she has a lot of other great content too. So, I wanted to thank her for thinking of me and answer her questions, which were a lot of fun. Stressful, because I don’t like talking about myself that much, but fun.
The Liebster award is a way of showing recognition to fellow blogger and here are the rules:
create a post on your blog about your nomination and by who
write down the instructions
answer the questions that are given to you
give 11 random facts about yourself
nominate 5 bloggers and share your post so they can accept
give 11 questions for them to answer
These are the questions from Miss Beauty Guru
If you were stuck on an island, what 3 things would you take?
My first thought when reading this was, my laptop because I would finally have a quiet place to write. Then I thought I should have my notebook and my phone, too. I probably should have thought of something helpful to survival, but I decided to go with my first thought.
What is you’re favorite quote that you go by, and why?
My favorite quote is a bible verse. Isaiah 6:8 — “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” This verse really resonates with me because I believe that God has a plan for all of us if we just learn to listen to him. Reading this reminds me to listen.
What is your favorite dish?
I feel like you’re expecting a home cooked meal, but no. My favorite dish is the vegetable bowl at Fuji Teppanyaki Restaurant in Beaufort, SC.
How would you describe yourself in one word?
What is one tip you would give to fellow bloggers?
Honestly, I feel like I’m still too new to blogging to be able to give helpful advice. I’ve only been blogging since August of 2015. (It’s me a few hours after writing that and I would like to add: Blog because you love to blog. It’s hard work with very few rewards. If you don’t love it, don’t do it.)
What is your favorite childhood memory?
This was a toss up between playing three billy goats gruff with my siblings and my cousin, Panda and the first time I twirled fire baton. Both are pretty excellent memories.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
I couldn’t pick just one place so I picked four: California, Puerto Rico, Ireland, and Knossos.
What do you mostly feel proud about?
I feel proud when I see students that I’ve taught at the literacy summer camp learning to love school.
What do you want your tombstone to say?
As I’m only 22, hopefully I’ll do something worthy of putting on a tombstone between now and then.
If you won the lottery what would you do?
I would pay as much of my student loans off as possible.
Coffee or tea?
Sweet tea all the way. I’m a southern girl
