The lovely Estella Lynch nominated me for the Liebster Award, which is…well…I don’t have much info on it other than it’s a blogging award. So hooray!

I’ve been  asked to answer some questions about myself and to nominate others to take part in the award. But as you all know, I tend to skip the nominating thing because I don’t want any of you bastards to feel left out.

On to the questions:

1. Which is your favorite blog post you’ve ever written? [Please post a link so I can read it.]

My favorite would be “Mental Illness: My Brain Demons Want Me to Fail” because it was the first time I was straight-up honest about my mental condition in such a public forum. It felt good to write that post and hit “publish.”

2. Do you prefer the city or countryside?

Due to my social anxiety, I prefer the suburbs or country. But if my social anxiety were nonexistent, then I would definitely be a city girl.

3. Cats or dogs?

Lucy the Conqueror

Lucy, the weirdest dog I’ve ever known (and loved).

Dogs. Always dogs.

4. Comedies or thrillers?

I have to choose one? I guess I’ll pick comedies, although my absolute favorite genre is sci-fi or horror.

5. Coffee or tea?

Um…neither. I’m a hot chocolate kind of person. Never really got on the tea or coffee bandwagon.

6. Words or images?

Images. I know, I know. I’m a writer, so I should pick words. But we’re being honest here, right? So I have to fess up: I choose images.

7. Meryl or The Donald?

Oh yeah? Well, I have a question for you: Am I uncool for having no idea what this question means?

8. Parties or private moments?

Private moments. See note about social anxiety above.

9. Are you a world-traveler or homebody?

I’m a homebody although I wish I were a world-traveler. That fun social anxiety I’ve mentioned twice already? It has a buddy called travel anxiety. They both live in a corner of my brain and plot ways to make me freak out.

10. What/who inspires you?

inspire me liebster award

Art, music, people who have overcome difficult situations, and nature.

11. Why blog?

I began blogging because I figured it was what was expected of me, given that I’m a freelance writer. But now I blog because I enjoy it. Quite a bit.

That’s all for now, folks. I hope your day is as far out and wonderful as possible.
