The Sisterhood Award

Yeah, I got nominated twice. So...I thought to make it easier for myself, as well as simpler for you all, I'd do it all in one post. A huge thank you to Jesseca of Whimsical Writings and Emily from The Imaginary World of Emily McConnell (and the real one too...). It was so sweet of them to think of me and my blog! :) But to get back to the subject... here are the rules:

*Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
*Put the award logo on your blog.
*Answer the ten (or in my case, twenty) questions sent to you
*Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
*Nominate ten blogs.
Here are the questions these two girls gave me, and my crazy answers. :P
 
Jesseca's questions:
What are you most looking forward to this summer?
Having two pen pals (they know who I'm talking about) visit me in August! :D :D :D (yeah, I'm pretty excited...can you tell?? :P)
And of course, I'm turning 17. That's pretty exciting. ;)


What is your favorite movie this year?
Big Hero 6. Hands down. I loved that movie!!

Favorite instrument?
I'd say a tie between the piano and the flute. Those instruments I play, and I love them both. (go figure...I mean, honestly, why learn an instrument you don't like?)

Favorite genre of books to read?
Historical fiction tied with selective fantasy. (I'm picky about  the books I read...there's a lot of trash in the world.)

Favorite Bible verse?
Ahhhh! There's so many! I can't choose!!! ONE of my favorites is Philippians 4:8, but that's only ONE of my favorites.

Favorite historical era?
Can anyone guess? Anyone? Medieval times and the World Wars.

Favorite short story?
Ooo...another toughy. I really like L. M. Montgomery and Louisa May Alcott's short story's, but I can hardly pick a favorite from them.

Favorite food?
Hmm...probably a tie between pizza and pasta. Can you tell I love Italian food?

Favorite hymn?
BE THOU MY VISION. Without a doubt. That was easy...

Favorite movie soundtrack?
Another tie between "Gladiator" and "Lord of the Rings"... but I also really, REALLY like the Star Wars music. :)
 
Emily's questions:

You discover that someone you’ve known your whole life is in fact- not real. Reaction?
"WHAAAT?!?!!!??!!!!!"
 

Favorite old TV show? (has to be earlier than the eighties)
Zorro, the complete first and second season.


You open your door to discover the dandelions in your yard have actually turned into real lions. How are you going to take care of this problem?
Get into the house ASAP and call the zoo. Maybe shoot one or two just to be able to say to my friends in a nonchalant voice, "Oh, I forgot to tell you...yesterday I shot a couple lions."


Guinea pigs or chinchillas?
I don't really particularly like either a lot. But since my older brother owned a couple guinea pigs once, I'll say guinea pigs.


Do you follow world/national news much?
Sometimes. Right now it's so depressing that I don't really want too.


What’s your favorite verse in Revelation?
Revelation 1:8. "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End," says the Lord, "who is and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty." 


Which Nordic (Scandinavian) country do you want to visit? Sweden, Iceland, Finland, Denmark or Norway?
Iceland. They've got the awesomest ponies EVER. The only ponies I like better are Shetland Ponies from Scotland.


Do you know what the Baltics are?
Yes. But don't ask me to explain. ;)


If one of your fictional characters (or a character from your favorite TV show or movie or book) was to be your mentor, who would you choose and why?
Obi-wan Kenobi. Simply because I know he'd have the patience to deal with my crazy personality. Oh, and I'd love to learn how to use a light saber. :) Besides...he's awesome. What more could you want in a mentor?


And finally- would you rather be bucked off a horse and break your arm and a rib, stepped on by an elephant and break your leg or nearly drown in a river?
Nearly drown in a river. At least I wouldn't have any broken bones to deal with. And besides, I'd only NEARLY drown...and that's not so bad since I'm pretty used to almost drowning. Every time I try to swim I "nearly drown". So it wouldn't even be that traumatic. :P
 
 
Here's my questions for those I nominate:
 
If you could make a movie, what would it be about?
How do you spend your time on a rainy day?
If you could ask God one question, what would it be?
What do you think is the best way to make new friends?
What's the best meal your mom/dad cooks?
What is something you want to learn how to do and why?
If you had to live in a different state, which state would you choose?
If you could change one thing about your personality, what would you change?
If you could have ANY animal as a pet, which animal would you choose?
If you had to choose, would you be blind, deaf, or dumb? Why?
 
Pretty much everyone I know has already gotten nominated, but here's what I'll do-anyone who has a blog and wants to do this-take my questions and answer them. You don't have to link back to me or anything. I'll enjoy reading your answers though! Just tell me if you are going to answer them and I'll drop by your blog and comment on your answers.
Have fun and God bless! :D

  1. Thanks for answering my questions! It was so much fun to see your answers. :D I think it was fun period to do this, I had such a blast reading everyone's answers. And yes, Iceland has cool ponies. :D I think you're the only one who knew what the Baltics were- and I'm assuming you knew they were three countries consisting of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. :) I love geography questions! :D

    Thanks for answering! I'm glad you'll get to meet your penpals in a couple weeks... ;) :D

I LOVE COMMENTS. But be warned, if your comment is impolite, contains swear words, or is disrespectful of God, I will kill it. Just kidding. ;)
(Seriously though...it WILL DIE.)
