It’s been a while since I’ve done any tags. Thankfully, Kinsey and Rebekah have remedied that for us and I’ve been tagged for two things. The Eclipse tag, and the Leibster Award. 

Let’s jump in, shall we?


Eclipse Tag


  • Thank the person that nominated you for this tag (thank you Kinsey!)
  • List the rules so the next nominees will know them (boom)
  • Include the ‘Eclipse’ image somewhere in your post 
  • Answer the 3 questions, and ask 3 questions for the next people.
  • Nominate 3 people, and make sure they find out that they have been nominated.


  1. Who is the person who inspired you to write? (its okay if there’s more than one)

Originally the author who got me to write my first pages in a little baby word document? Lois Walfrid Johnson and her Viking Quest books. I was very inspired by those as a small writer. 

Though one author who I progressed into trying to emulate and have not ever stopped is Gordon Korman. I love his tone a lot and he continues to inspire me today.


2. Favorite wild animal that would be awesome as a pet.

Oooohh I’ve always thought foxes would be fun. Their little bushy tails. ❤

I mean as long as you don’t have chickens. xD


3. Tell me a good memory from a childhood book 🙂

Pretending I was asleep when mom checked on me at naptime so I could go read more Boxcar Children. 



Okay. My three questions:

  1. What’s one weird name that you really like?
  2. If you had a theme song that would play when you walked in the room, what would it be?
  3. What’s one very small, random memory you have from when you were little?

And my three nominees.

Using a weird form of nomination I do sometimes.

I nominate: Someone who’s wearing a plaid shirt. Someone listening to good music right now. And someone who’s looking at my blog for the first time. 

Really anyone who wants to. xD




Leibster Award

The drill for this one is just to answer the eleven questions, ask eleven of my own and nominate eleven peeps.

Simple enough. On to the questions.


1. What color(s) do you associate with yourself?

Blue, definitely. I like wearing navy blue + love the ocean and various blue shades. And sky blue was my absolute favorite crayon as a child. Green, more in the sense of like darker green and army green. My eyes are sort of army green, as is about 2/3 of my wardrobe. xD And sort of just… a deep wood brown? I like brown pretty well.


2. How would you describe your current fashion sense? How would you describe your ideal fashion sense?

Sort of grunge? I mean it’s not like I sit pining away for my ideal fashion sense, so the line isn’t too clear between those two. xD I like comfy clothes and plaid shirts and cargo pants and sort of messy-ish but cute things. Generally defined as grunge, so I’ll just say that to both and say I’m living the dream. 

3. If you had to describe your life in five songs, what would they be?

Ohhhh this is a good question.


Let’s see. Not definitively, but… let’s see if I can narrow it down to five.

joy by for King & Country

Shake This Feeling by Switchfoot

Believer by American Authors

Trouble by Avicii

Happiness by Needtobreathe

4. Opinion on fuzzy socks?

In a gif?


5. What’s your MBTI / Enneagram / Hogwarts House / anything else?

I’m a pretty flexible ISFJ. As in I really don’t feel like I define as an introvert or a judger in the traditional sense, but if we’re going by the function stack, it definitely fits? xD

I was recently poking into Enneagram because of all the lovely things about that drifting around the blogosphere. And after poking around and rejecting a few quiz results I am 9w8.

My Harry Potter knowledge is zilch, but I happened to get caught up and typed by a few friends who know what that actually means, so I’m Hufflepuff. (basically like out of the brave ones, the smart ones, the sneaky ones and the nice ones, I’m one of the nice ones. Okee. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

Anything else….. hmm.

In the official Lunar Chronicles quiz, I’m Carswell Thorne. In a couple of random Agents of SHIELD quizzes, I’m Fitz. In the Avengers quiz, I’m Hawkeye. In another random quiz, I’m 80% British. 


6. What does your room look like?

I share with my awesome sis, so we’ve got a pretty fun split of styles based on our corners of the room. Hers is very artsy and pink and colorful. Mine… I have one nautical wall (an octopus wall plank thing that I admired for like over a year before actually buying + a bunch of framed pictures that I’ve taken at the ocean back in Washingtom.) And one wall with a bunch of postcards from all over the country. 

And a big braidy rug on the floor. Nice windows. A saucer chair. And two dressers. 


7. Who is one person who is currently doing what you would like to do with your life?

Bigfoot. Bigfoot is a person too.

Building up a fanbase…. traveling the country and becoming legendary… hiding out in the woods and only being captured in blurry crimeshot photos….

Heck yeah.


8. What’s a word that you don’t think sounds like its meaning? What does it sound like it should mean?

Crepuscular. I mean, it’s supposed to be like those pretty light rays coming through the clouds. But it sounds like… idk, something to do with… either being crispy or infected. Maybe both.

9. How do you think other people perceive you?

… don’t ask me that. I don’t even know. xD

Except for constantly being perceived as much younger.

If I had to take a guess though. Definitely friendly and optimistic. Maybe a little loud sometimes. Someone with strong feelings about characters and stories. Hopefully someone fairly chill and capable. 


10. What are (at least) four things you would want to tell your younger self?

One, accept your curly hair sooner. Just treat it nice and it will be nice back.

Two, stick with piano lessons better. 

Three, moving won’t kill you. But enjoy Washington while you’re there.

Four…. -squint- nothing specific, but just giving 2016 me a hug and saying it’ll be okay and enjoy that year more? 


11. What is the core reason why you blog? What kind of comments that people leave show you that you’re reaching that goal?

To brighten people’s days. Make people smile and go back into life with a little more to smile about and/or something fun to do. Just hearing that I made people laugh/smile/have a little better day because of my posts is really encouraging. ❤

So if I make just a few of you guys happy, that’s a win.


SO. My questions for the next folks.

  1. If you were a food, what food would it be?
  2. Story that you read over and over again?
  3. Something that never fails to make you laugh?
  4. Fictional character that you really identify with and why?
  5. Favorite song at this moment?
  6. A really good thing that you think more people should know about?
  7. Topic that you find yourself rambling about the most?
  8. Piece of advice you would give to younger kids?
  9. A picture that you think is really pretty?
  10. Favorite and least favorite vegetables?
  11. If you could choose, what genre of story would you make your life? (feel free to mash together genres)

And my eleven nominees: Sprinklesquink, Squid, Kinsey, Victoria, Alyssa, tworoadsdiverged, Kate, Cassandra, Aberdeen, Laurel, and Jane.

Have fun with it you guys!


Hope you guys enjoyed the post and have a good Sunday. 🙂

See ya next time,

  1. Heeey that’s hilarious cuz I was wondering just earlier what was your Enneagram. xD Sweet.
    And Viking Quest yaaay! Several members of our family, self included, wrote Viking Quest rip-offs as some of our firsts. *shudder* But I still like the real books. Second tier of kids in our family’s just been reading them, so it’s fun.
    *high-five for your colors* Those are my best too, esp. blue. Plus burgundy also.

      1. I actually know hardly anything about it, but enough to recognize some of the type numbers. XD I’m 2w1, with a third of 5 or 9; can’t figger which first, they’re sorta tied (and have come out both on different tests).
        But I’m just tryn’a figure out howww there could be a 9w8 ’cause MAN, that’s like, TOTAL opposites. You’re a living paradox. xD

  2. Oh my gosh, I totally look up to Gordan Korman too! His writing is so smooth and intriguing, and when I saw you wrote that I took a double-glance, because he’s not super well-know. So that just made my day!! And yes…. Stick with the piano lessons… The regrets. 😉

    1. ANOTHER GORDON KORMAN FAN IN THE WILD. -crazy waving- Oh my gosh his books are the beeesst which ones are your favorites? ❤
      All the piano regrets…. -head shaking- xD

        Ahhh well of course the entire Swindle series was what initially drew me to him, but I enjoy all his books. ACTUALLY, I do have a sweet spot for Schooled as well, being a homeschooler and all. How about you?

          1. I read that one a long time ago, but I remember liking it! Maybe I’ll have to check it out again. 😀

  3. These Q&As were amazing!! Loved your answers. 🙂
    Also, thank you for the nomination! I’ve done the Libiester tag before, but your questions are super awesome and it’s been a while, so I’m looking forward to it! Hopefully it’ll be soon when I actually get to it! Hahaha 🙂
    Love, Squid

  4. If your goal for your blog is to brighten other people’s days, then it’s definitely accomplished that for me. 😀 My dog can testify that pretty much every time I go on here I snort with laughter. Except for the sad posts. Then I wail into cyberspace my utter grief and anguish and continue to be downcast for years on end. But, yeah, except for those infrequent occasions your posts always make me smile. 😉

  5. Thanks for tagging me! It may have kicked me into action on my other blog. 😉 (Yeah – I did it on the Writinganyone one). Thanks again!!! ❤ ❤ 😀
