Eyyy! Guess who got nominated for the Liebster Blogger Award?! …Well, actually, it’s this chick right here! Oh, I know-I’m psyched about it, too, what with it being the first blogger award I’ve received in the history of ever.
So I will start with a special thanks to @WillowUnspoken that nominated me for this award! Go check out her blog at https://willowunspoken.wordpress.com/ ! She has some great and insightful posts for you to reflect on.
So with that out of the way, buckle your seat belt, folks. Because I’m about to fill your brain with my completely awe-inspiring and wonder-filled answers. The questions WillowUnspoken gave me were tough, but great questions to choose for me.
I will also be nominating eleven other blogs for this Liebster Award. If I nominated you, here are the rules to your nomination:
The Questions @WillowOutspoken Chose for Me:
- Are you an open person? Why or why not? I mean, I think it depends on what we’re talking about. Yes, I am open to hearing and discussing other people’s worldviews and ideas. But at the same time, I know what I believe and what I stand for. If you are asking if I am open with others then I’d have to say not all the time. That is not something that came to me instantaneously at birth. It has been something I’ve learned and have grown into after gaining confidence in myself and in who I am. Although, I definitely think it is a good thing to be cautious about who you trust, to some extent. If you’re talking about being open to new adventures, then 100% yes. I’m ecstatic to get out and travel and do new things. I’ve developed this adventurous and spontaneous spirit as I grew older. (While of course, still maintaining my common sense and reason about me.)
- If you could go back in time to fix a mistake of yours, what would it be, when, and why? I’d say that there are many points in life that I wish I could go back and do something different, but all in all, I’ve ended up seeing how those situations had grown me as an individual. I think a lot of aspects of life (including our mistakes) prepare us for the real world. Because the real world is not always so peachy as we’d like it to be.
- How would you describe yourself in one single word? This one is tough. Well-rounded? I’m part of a family that cares about art and literature as well as sports and fun, and because of this, I’d say that’s given me a good outlook on life.
- Other than a parent or guardian, who would you trust with your life? Um, duh. Spiderman.
- If you could change one thing about this world, what would it be? I would change the way it treats children, animals, and the total well-being of others.
- What is your favorite activity? Soccer has always been something that I’ve had a deep passion for. It hurts a lot that I don’t get to play it anymore, but I try to keep up with games on TV and still love it the same. Other than soccer, another one of my favorite things that I get to do is play tennis. I’ve watched tennis with my dad since I was four or five (Roger Federer, you rock!) But it was only recently that I have started enjoying it more. Overall, I’d say my favorite activity in the world would be writing, for sure. I’ve been writing little snippets and stories since I was in first grade and it’ll always be a part of me.
- Do you want children, or have children? Yeah, sure. I’d want kids; I love them! I think I would like to adopt, too, but before I do all that I want to go to college, travel, write, just live life for a while.
- When were you happiest last? The weekend, definitely!
- If any, what is a great memory that is also painful? I’d say any memory with my adopted brother is at least a little painful. We’ve gone through way too much with him, but everything played a part in leading us to my dear little niece and nephew. A huge lesson in adoption is learning that family is not always the person that gave birth to you. It is who is there for you through it all, and who will always be there because of choice, not because of blood. Love is so much stronger than many blood relations are. I think I’ll be speaking of that in a future blog post, by the way.
- Do you think of yourself as a hypocrite? Why or why not? I don’t. Although, for every single person on God’s green earth, the way people perceive us is not who we are all the time. It is human nature. One comment I have heard is, “I don’t think she has a mean bone in her body!” But I’ll bet you if you see Hannah in the morning of a particularly bad Monday then you may realize for yourself that no matter how put together someone looks from the outside looking in, we all have our faults and short-comings. Being a hypocrite is different than being real!
- Do you see yourself on a straight path in the next 10 years? I would hope so! I know that college and young adulthood is always a tough time for people, but I wish to stay true to myself and what I stand for in the process. I want to grow into adulthood with grace.
11 Completely Random Facts About Me:
- I’ve wanted to be an author since I was in first grade.
- I’m an ambivert ( “a person whose personality has a balance of extrovert and introvert features.” ) …Hahaha see? I told you I’m well-rounded! But this just basically means that I love people, but I get super drained in big group settings and with people I don’t know well.
- I want to become an Adoption Lawyer.
- I. Love. Music. and singing. I love singing, too.
- I’m 5,2″ or 5,3″. Let’s go with 5,3″
- I’ve found that David Copperfield is actually a really good book. Oh, the joys of having a father that was a former British lit teacher. You grow up around this stuff.
- French cappuccino. Need I say more?
- I’m 16 years old.
- At ages around 11-12, I wrote 100 pages of a book before I stopped. It’s hilarious to look back at the old things you’ve written when you were younger. It always involves a whole lot of cringing and laughter.
- I go to a school that my dad founded this year that’s mission is for kids in rough situations.
- I’ve been parasailing and yes. It is as awesome as it sounds.
