At Home with Meg’s Liebster Award Questions for Me
Here are my answers to Meg’s questions!
1. What do you love most about blogging?
I love being able to combine my interests in graphic design, writing, and web design! I’m always learning new things and challenging myself.
2. Who is your favorite blogger that you get inspiration or motivation from?
A Beautiful Mess. Everything about that blog is wonderful.
3. What is your favorite blog post you’ve written?
What I Wish I Knew Before Going to Africa. It’s vulnerable and honest and I put a lot of time and effort into it.
4. If you were on Survivor – what type of player would you be (a leader, a team player, a strategist, manipulator, etc)?
A team player. Buuuut I probably wouldn’t be on Survivor because that whole experience just sounds miserable.
5. If you found yourself on a deserted island, what five things would you want with you?
Oh man. I’m going to assume I wouldn’t have cell phone or internet service because I could just call or message for help, so outside of that, I’d have to say (1) my boyfriend Sean, (2) the book Life of Pi, (3) a blanket, (4) a pillow, and (5) a mobile home. Is a mobile home cheating? I’m going to say it’s not.
6. What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever done?
Touched an alligator while I was studying abroad in Ghana. In hindsight, it was reeeeally dumb.
7. What is your favorite quote and why?
“Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should live their lives, but none about his or her own.” -Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
It’s just so true. I wish people could just let others live their own lives without judgment.
8. What was the last movie you have seen and what are your top five movie picks?
The last movie I saw was Theory of Everything and it was wonderful. My top five movie picks are (1) Fight Club, (2) That Thing You Do!, (3) Life of Pi, (4), Big Fish, and (5) Guardians of the Galaxy.
9. Do you prefer to eat cookies, cake, cupcakes, or candy?
10. If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?
Pay off my parents’ mortgage.
11. What’s the first concert you ever went to?
NSYNC. And damn proud of it.
