The Liebster Award | Love Actually, Advice & Pie

Book Courtship-8Though I was nominated for this Liebster Award quite a while ago, I thought I would go ahead and write a post about it anyways. It’s always fun to answer some interesting questions, ask a few of my own, and then highlight a bunch of lovely bloggers. Thanks so much to Grace @ kimmie.gg for nominating me! Be sure to check out her blog if you haven’t already.

1) You must acknowledge the person who nominated you and display the award.

3) Ask your own 11 questions.
4) Nominate 11 blogs that you think are deserving of the award.

Suspense-271. Why did you begin blogging?

I originally began blogging back in high school simply to keep a written record of my thoughts on the books I read. I had no idea that such a vast, enthusiastic, and active book blogging community even existed!

2. What’s your favorite movie and why?

This is such a difficult question, but I think my answer is going to have to be Love Actually. I watched it for the very first time this past December and absolutely fell in love with it (and watched it two more times before Christmas!). British accents, adorable love stories, and Hugh Grant– what more could you want?

Love Actually

3. Where is your next travel destination?

Back home from college? I have no current travel plans in the future, although I would love to study abroad next year!

4. What is an item on your bucket list?

Travel abroad! I have never traveled outside of the United States, but it’s definitely something I hope to accomplish (ideally in the next few years). England, Spain, and Germany are all countries I hope to visit someday!

5. Where do you buy most of you books from?

Lately I’ve been buying books in two extremes: either online or at my local independent bookshop. I much prefer to browse the bookshelves in person and support small book businesses, but sometimes that’s difficult to do while away at college. I had a lot of fun on a recent trip to this bookshop when this happened:

6. If you could give advice to your 10 year old self, what would it be?

This has been said so often by so many people, but it’s true: BE YOURSELF. Don’t worry about the bullies or the senseless drama. It will all work out in the end.

7. Who is your role model? (Can include fictional characters as well)

My parents. They are supportive, they are kind, they are intelligent, and they are successful in more than just their careers. They inspire me in every way, and they will always be my role models.

8. What career path is your ideal choice?

I would love to someday be an English professor at a college or university! Discussing literature, meeting with students, working on my own research… it sounds like the ideal job for me.

9. If life handed you lemons, what would you do with them?

Find out a way to make lemon meringue pie. Pie is too good to not bake when handed lemons.

10. What is your earliest memory?

I don’t have a distinct first memory, but one of the earliest things I can remember is celebrating a holiday (Thanksgiving? Christmas?) with all of my family members over my house.

11. If you had a superpower, what would it be and why?

Being able to communicate with everyone– people, animals, and even plants– by knowing how to speak all languages. Communication is vital, yet often times it is impossible due to language differences (or, in the case of plants and animals, species differences). Imagine being able to talk to everyone and anything!

  1. This was a pretty fun tag! (I’m so behind on tags, it’s terrible) My parents are definitely my role models! I would love to be a researcher one day, or maybe a museum curator. I would say ‘hi life, I like lemons, but do you have any apples, because I want to make crumble.’ I borrowed the Cursed Child from a friend, so I probably will be reading it soon.

  2. Love Actually is soooo good :). Did you know the girl who plays the famous singer is actually Marceline from Adventure Time? I thought it was pretty cool. If you ever travel to Germany, I suggest going in the fall, it’s beautiful over there then! Plus, Oktoberfest ;).
    Making pie is always a brilliant idea. Thank you for the tag! I did my 2nd Liebster last month, so I think people are getting rather tired of hearing about me 😀 but maybe there will be a 3rd in 5-6 months or so 😉
