Things About Me and Awards

On Wednesday I kindly received the Kreativ Blogger award from my mom, Kathy, over at Imagine Today!  Well, actually she sorta just said whoever comments gets the award, so I commented lol.



Anyway, the rules are:

  1. Link back to the person who awarded you
  2. Answer the questions below
  3. Share ten random facts about yourself
  4. Nominate seven worthy blogs for the award
Okay, let's get moving!

What's your favorite song?
I really only have favorite artists.  My favorite songs change all the time, but this week, I guess my favorite is Forever by Red



What is your favorite dessert?
Key lime pie!

What ticks you off?
Unloading the dishwasher.... (sorry, mom.)

When you're upset, what do you do?
Put in my headphones and listen to my music BLASTING LOUD.

Which is/was your favorite pet?
Padme, our turtle.  Rest in peace, Padme.

Which to you prefer to wear, white or black?
Depends.  I like both.

What is your biggest fear?
Hmm... this is a hard one.  I guess I'm afraid of not doing much in life.  Living my whole life without really accomplishing much.  Hopefully I'm on the right path :)

What is your attitude mostly?
Don't worry.  Things will work themselves if you put in the effort.

What is perfection?
Perfection is a state of mind.  The only way to achieve it is to accept that it's not achievable.

What is your guilty pleasure?
Playing video games.  To be more specific?  Any Star Wars video game, Little Big Planet, but mostly it goes to the Assassin's Creed.  That game is awesome.  Oh, and watching the TV series LOST and The Clone Wars.

Ten other random things:
  1. I'm a writeaholic. Duh.
  2. I love singing, but no one else loves my voice.  But I sing anyway :)
  3. I love drawing and painting people, but I can only draw girls with accuracy
  4. I'm awkward around people I don't know unless it's over email/blog/IM
  5. When people ask me what my story's about, I freeze up and have no idea what to say
  6. I have a secret crush on Anakin Skywalker (okay, guess it's not that secret anymore... just keep it between the 324 of you...)
  7. I listen to/read pretty much every genre of music/literature including opera/non-fiction.  What would make me not like it or like it would depend on how well it's written.
  8. I want to write in as many genres as I possibly can.
  9. My favorite mythical creature is a dragon :)
  10. My favorite colors are blue and silver
Okay!  Now that that's over with, I'll get on to my nominees.  Since I'm lazy, I'm only going to award three lucky bloggers.  And they are:
  1. Kate~ Because she's awesome and creative!  We know each other outside the blogosphere and have been friends since... four years ago?  She's a great writer and I have no idea where From the Ashes would be without her help.  Thanks Kate!
  2. Matt~ Because his posts have been so useful to me lately, and he's got such a creative way of analyzing fantasy!  Even though I don't write fantasy (yet) it's giving me a TON of ideas.
  3. T.Z. Wallace~ Because her posts never fail to make me laugh/smile/nod-my-head-in-agreement/reflect on whatever she's posting about!
All three of these bloggers are more than worthy of the Kreativ Blogger Award.  So go congratulate them and follow them!  They will not let you guys down!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Aw, thanks Jess! :) I never know how to describe my book either. When someone asks, I am like a deer in the headlights.
