The Liebster Award.


So, someone was awesome enough to nominate me for The Liebster Award. That someone is Hannah from The Cats And Coffee. This made my day, because...awards are cool as hell. And it also made me proud to know that someone actually feels my blog is even close to worthy of an award. So thank you bunches, Hannah.

If you're not familiar with it, The Liebster Award has bloggers nominate other bloggers who have a smaller following. It helps us all find new blogs to love and enjoy, gives us recognition for all the hard work we do, and builds a sense of community in this big scary blogosphere. Once nominated, you list eleven facts about yourself, answer the eleven questions written by who nominated you, and then create eleven questions of your own for whoever you nominate.

11 Facts About Me
- I'm an only child.
- I'm left handed.
- I've never been out of the United States in my life (don't worry, it's on my bucket list).
- When I was younger, I had a goal to become a groupie for the band Korn. This has not come into fruition as of yet, and most likely never will.
- As much as I love music, I've only been to one concert my entire life.
- Daria was my idol growing up.
- I am obsessed with school supplies and stationary. I watch Youtube videos of them when I'm feeling anxious or stressed to make me feel better.
- I don't drink/like soda.
- Anything purple makes me happy. Most of the things I own are purple.
- I'm afraid of spiders.
- Writing is another one of my loves, hence why I love blogging so much.

Hannah's Questions
How did you choose your blog’s name?
I wanted something short and sweet that summed me up pretty well. Strange and pretty was perfect.

What is your favorite childhood memory?
Whenever my aunt would come over to my house and bring me presents. It was always a fun day when she came over, and I always threw a fit when she had to leave.


If you could only bring three things on a desert island, what would they be?
Some kind of water filter, boxes upon boxes of pop tarts, and...a boat.

What’s your favorite book?
American Psycho by Brett Easton Ellis. See, this is where the "strange" part of my blog name comes into play.

What are your favorite “big” blogs?
Lily Pebbles, Tattooed Tealady, and Vivianna Does Makeup.

How do you find the energy to maintain a blog?
I love writing. It calms me and gives me an outlet to express myself. That's super important to me in my life.

Do you have any siblings? If so, how many, and what is your birth order?
Nope, only child. And yes, I'm super spoiled.

Do you believe in astrology?
To an extent. I don't plan my entire monthly schedule on what the stars say, but some of it I pay attention to.

What’s your favorite historical time period to learn about?
Probably the 20s and 30s. Things just seemed so...interesting back then.

What did you want to be when you grew up?
A brain surgeon. Clearly that and the groupie thing did not work out.

Do you believe in fate?
Again, to an extent. But I mostly believe in the fact that our actions lead to consequences/reactions. So I don't let fate play a large part in how I live my life.

Okay, so now are the 11 questions I have for my selected nominees:
1. What is your take on the blogging world right now?
2. If you could have any animal (wild or domesticated) as a pet, what would it be?
3. Favorite television show right now?
4. Most insane hospital experience ever (that you feel comfortable sharing with us).
5. If you have kids, what were the inspirations for their names? If you are not a parent yet, what are some baby names you've thought of before?
6. Are you a cat or a dog person?
7. Story behind your blog name?
8. Favorite shade of lipstick?
9. Favorite application/program you use when blogging?
10. If you had to replace your vocabulary with just two words, what would they be?
11. Llamas With Hats?
