Nominated For The Liebster Award

A huge thank you goes out to my dear friend Sidharth, from Writing Rhymes. Over these few days, he has inspired me to write several poems that you’ll see on my blog. I was feeling a bit depressed lately, and he has been a true friend to talk to.

He writes poetry and short stories, and he always makes me smile with his words. So if you need some words of encouragement and inspiration, feel free to go visit his blog.

Rules for this award:

  • 1. Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you.
  • 2. Share 11 facts about yourself.
  • 3. Answer the 11 questions the blogger(s) asked you.
  • 4. Nominate 11 bloggers and make them happy!
  • 5. Think 11 questions and ask them to your nominees.
  • 6. Notify your 11 nominees.

My 11 facts:

  1. Did you know, liebster is German for beloved? (pronounced Leeb-ster). I learned that from my mom the first time I was nominated for this award.
  2. I’m more of a fish and plant person, rather then a cat/dog person.
  3. I prefer watching the sun rise, more then the sun setting. I remember when I was in Florida State, and I watched the sun seep over the ocean and onto the beach. You can see my photos here!
  4. I’m an introvert, and I really enjoy talking to people online versus in a group of people, I often fade into the background of the room, and I’m often not very expressive.
  5. I love both coffee and tea, but not together though!
  6. My summer job is a pool lifeguard, and I get free ice-cream.
  7. I write more then I read. It may be out of balance, but even before I could read, I’ve always wanted to create things with art and words.
  8. My favorite season is summer.
  9. I’m a freelance graphic designer, and I also love working with bloggers re-design their blogs!
  10. My favorite band is Pentatonix, I know they mostly do covers, but they are so vocally perfect!
  11. I love art and illustration.
  • What’s your most decorated aspiration in life & why?

I have two: To be able to connect with others. I love talking to people, hearing their stories and asking questions about the world. And to be able to take care of my family, and support them in the ways they need.

  • Apart from being a magnificent blogger, what other hobbies that you have?

Thanks! I love music and art. I love singing, and I love how music can connect with people, no matter the language. Art is how I express myself sometimes, and I love classical illustrations and art. Another thing I love about art, is that it can be wordless, but almost never emotionless.

  • What’s your outlook towards blogging, as what do you see it as?

I see blogging as a way to connect with people from all over the world, and it’s a great emotions/thoughts outlet. I can put my heart and soul into poetry and short stories and someone else can connect with it, isn’t that amazing?

  • What are your fundamental principles in life?

Be kind and have empathy for others who are struggling, be grateful for who you are and how your childhood life formed your adulthood life, and recognize that you can change the world simply by being a kind person and by taking time to appreciate everything around you.

  • What are the things/activities that provide peace to you?

Swimming: When I was younger, I would swim to the bottom of the public pool (it’s 9 feet deep) and just take a moment to be silent and think.

Singing: I sing when I’m sad, and I often cry, but by pouring my emotions out into a song, I always feel better when I’m done.

And Running: I have a place where I can take off my shoes and just run. The grass is long and green and soft under my feet. The wind whips my hair across my face, and I can close my eyes and simply feel the earth, I can shout to the sky and sing with the birds. There, I have peace. There, I can be free.

  • What is your dream destination & why does it captivate you so much?

South Korea! I love it because of the music culture. It basically revolves around their k-pop music and k-pop idols. I would love to live there in the future and be able to experience everything! Something I really love about it is they blend the city with nature and color really well.

  • What’s your happiest moment in life that you still cherish?

Last summer my nephew was born, and I can still remember how happy and in love everyone was with him. This is my new favorite memory!

  • Could you name some of the blogs that you enjoy reading on WordPress?

Sure thing! lifesfinewhine, kith voyett, The Art of Blogging, and Bournemouth Girl. Just to name a few.

  • If you could have a superpower what would it be & why?

The ability to manipulate probability/chance/luck -OR- powers like the Miles Morales Spider-Man, his powers are really cool.

  • What are your key personal goals for your blog?

I love blogging as a hobby, it’s an amazing way to connect with people and improve your writing skills. But, I would really love to be able to make money off of my blog through my graphic design and blog design shop.

Also, I would like to reach my goal of gaining 1000+ followers a year, and I think this is totally achievable for my blog!

  • What aspect(s) of my writing skills/ blog appeals to you the most?

I admire your compassion for others, and your ability to project your emotions into your writing. Some bloggers sound like robots, but you are a very human writer.

You have a story that you tell with your blog, and we find that out through every poem and short story.
