Liebster Blog Award!

Hello everyone!!!! I just had my SAT today so I'm rewinding and cleaning my very messy room. Is anyone else a stress cleaner? I love to blast music and just clean obsessively. I can't clean a little because I'm such an OCD person. I have to either clean nothing or clean everything. It irks me to try and fail. I like to accomplish goals.

Can we please talk about high heels? I went shoe shopping at the SAT and bought a pair of 4.5 inch heels. So many of the shoes were 5 inches-6 inches. WHO ARE THESE SHOES FOR? No one really seems to know. It did feel nice to tower over everything in my path for about two minutes before my feet started to sort of hate me. I'm supposed to practice wearing these shoes for 20 minutes every day so that my feet get used to it. What did my feet ever do to me? I still haven't told my parents that I have a date... or more like a guy friend who's going with me.

I don't think I have much other personal news. This week is going to be another busy one. :(
But anyways, Safia at and Sanya from both nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award! Here's 2 weeks worth of Friday Questions to learn more about me. I realized I never followed up on the award that Ginger from Here we gooo!!

Some of the questions are the same!
1. Hmm my favorite animal would have to be an opossum as of the moment. Opossums are soo cool!
2. I can't live without fun "fashion-forward" dresses and skirts. I love wearing patterned skirts rather than shorts. One day I just wanna run down a field of daisies and if I do, that's what I'll be wearing.
3. My dream vacation place would be. . . .FIJI! I've never been to an island and Fiji is a great place to start with!!!!
4. I don't have that many secrets, surprisingly. When I was a child I tried to bite someone.. does that count?
5. I've done a lot of crazy things. . . taking the BART (air rail type thing) to San Francisco when really I should've been going home because I have a terrible sense of direction.
6. Um... 20 seconds?
7. OOOH CUCUMBERS!!! I love cucumbers :)
8. I started blogging because I wanted an outlet to rant. I started in the summer because I had a lot of time and I wanted to try something new. It worked out so well!
9. I like alternative music! I like Neon Trees, Taylor Swift, Fun, etc. Mostly a lot of stuff I found from Youtube. People are soo talented!
10. The Proposal, He's Just Not that In to You, Forrest Gump, 10 Things I Hate about You, Pixar, Wreck It Ralph, Miyazaki movies (Spirited Away & Howl's Moving Castle mostly)!
11. Best day? I've had so many good days in different aspects. I don't have a best day because every day is a good day in some aspect. No particular day stands out as the BEST day.


2. I love to write as you might now. I'm part of this online radio thing. I VOLUNTEER with children.... OH! I guess you could say that I debate as a hobby now :D I am not musical at all. I like to bake!
3. Favorite book.... I've read so many delightful books. I like Confessions of a Shopaholic (the whole series. It's cute and a fun read). I love Great Gatsby, Empire Falls, To Kill A Mockingbird, East of Eden, Jodi Picoult, etc.
5. I've earned some great blogging friends and an audience for my work :)
6. Again, so many! Most of them will be down below.
7. Political journalist :) it sounds like such an amazing job and it combines all the things I like to do.
9. I'm such an awkward person... probably following standing next to an attractive guy next to the bulletin board where classes are posted at a community college during the summer. He repeatedly stared at me, not because I'm cute but because I was standing there for a really long time.
10. I don't do names but a fun person who holds her own beliefs very firmly. She's enthusiastic and has lots of energy but at same time stubborn. We make a great pair!
11. TOAST :) or pancakes. or waffles. But toasters are awesome!!!
