Well, it appears as though i have been nominated for something.
I would like to thank not only my roommate, but also my favorite blog who nominated me imjusttryingtolive.
The award has to do with getting to know bloggers better, and the rules are this:
1. You must link back to the person who nominated you.
2. You must answer the 10 Liebster questions given to you by the nominee before you.
3. You must pick 10 bloggers to be nominated for the award with under 200 followers.
4. You must come up with 10 questions for your nominees to answer.
5. You must go to their blogs and notify your nominees.
Okay, so i will try my best to do all these things.. I’m not even sure i know 10 bloggers. And i can’t renominate someone who has been nominated already. So anywhoozers.
Here are the questions Sara asked me:
1.) Why did you start blogging?
I originally started this blog for many reasons. One of them being, I got too addicted to Tumblr and had to have something that didn’t constantly have pretty pictures and funny gifs to always distract me from my homework, and my life. Two, blogs are somewhat cooler than just writing in your journal, it’s a way to be vulnerable with people by sharing your heart. And lastly, i think i just got to the point where i wanted to share my life with people, whether they know me in person or not.
2.) What is your favorite adventure idea?
I think my favorite adventure idea would be just being completely spontaneous. Like i stated in my last blog post, i used to be spontaneous. It would probably be the best thing to just be someone who would be willing to just go when someone asks. I love going on adventures that include driving. I can see myself traveling a few states away with a friend, or maybe even flying to a random country that is chosen at the airport. Spontaneity all the way.
3.) What country would you live in if you could live anywhere?
This question is going to get such a biased answer. Italy. I’m Italian, you all probably didn’t know that. I would have gotten around to telling you anyways. But yes, I Michelle Wheelus, am a quarter Italian. I would love to go see the beautiful Italy. Venice would be pretty amazing i think. Maybe i’ll meet a hot Italian man. 😉
4.) What would you do if all your bills were covered, so you had no debt, and you had an extra $100,000?
HA! Easy! I would buy the 1966′ Mustang coupe that i’ve always wanted, baby blue, maybe stick, but it should probably have a nice stereo because of my love for music. Which brings me to the other thing i would get, the Gibson guitar i’ve always wanted. It’s 3,000 dollars and i would never be able to justify buying it if i didn’t have a buttload of money left. Then with the left over money, i would plan roadtrips, traveling in Europe, and independently releasing my own record. I may have gone over 100,000….. oooops .
5.) What superpower do you wish you had?
I think it would be pretty awesome to be able to just learn. Think about it. Someone just hands you a guitar and minutes later you’re a pro. What if you became like a pro at everything… Well, that actually would be no fun. Scratch that, TELEPORTATION!
6.) Why do you believe what you believe?
The reason i believe what i believe is because of experience, usually. I believe in God, because i’ve experienced His love. I believe in love, because i’ve been completely immersed in it since the day i was born. I believe in life, because it was given to us so graciously. I believe in second chances, because i love people and know they are only human and they make mistakes. I don’t, however, believe in fifth chances, because i’m not stupid.
7.) What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about almost everything. I think at this point i’m just passionate about life and i’m happy i get to have big dreams. I’m passionate about music, and beauty in the world. I’m passionate about the noise the toaster makes when it pops my Eggos up toasted to perfection. I’m passionate about the needle in my speedometer passing eighty-five. I’m passionate about the friends i have and dreaming of the future and the wonders it holds. Lastly, i’m passionate about Jesus, and why he came and died to give us all grace. I’m passionate about the life he gives.
8.) What is you favorite movie?
See, i could answer this question, but then i would have to subject the rest of my movie collection to being second best. And i just don’t think i want to do that to them.
9.) What is your fondest memory?
My fondest memory huh? Well. I can’t think of just one. Because to be honest, i don’t have one super great memory that i always have when i think of the best times in my life. But the best times in my life would have to be when i’m sitting around with a group of friends just laughing. Obviously not at nothing. But you know those times where there is some huge joke and you all CANNOT stop laughing, and then you just end up laughing at other peoples laughs. And it’s just this huge laugh fest? Well, those would be my favorite memories. But i actually did just think of a pretty good moment that does take the cake. =] The first time i heard my nephew laugh. I love laughter if you hadn’t noticed.
10.) Who was your first friend?
My first friend was my best friend for years. Her name is Rachel. We’re still Facebook friends, but we did drift apart. We used to play Dance Dance Revolution all the time, and we did our first talent show together in front of the whole school and it was completely humiliating. We went through a lot together and she was a wonderful first best friend.
