A Collection of Awards

Hey Guardians 🙂

I kind of have accumulated a few awards over the past months, and I just haven’t gotten around to doing them yet. Well, today is that day! Yep, that’s right, today you guys are in for an award post. There is a music tag at the end of this, so I suggest skipping to the end and starting the playlist while reading this post. I hope you enjoy!

The first award I have today is the Mystery Blogger award! I was nominated by Esther.

Rules:

  • Put the award logo/image on your blog.
  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well. (This award was created by Okoto Enigmas.)
  • Answer the 5 questions you were asked.
  • Tell your readers 3 things about yourself.
  • You have to nominate 10-20 people.
  • Notify your nominees by commenting on their blogs.
  • Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question.
  • Share a link to your best post(s).

The Questions:

#1. If you had to lose one of your five senses: touch, sight, hearing, smell, and taste, which one would you lose?

That’s really hard! I think I would have to go with taste though.

#2. On a scale from one to ten, how neat is your room on average? (Ten is super messy and one is super neat.)

Oh boy…

Probably about a 7 or 8?

#3. Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

I’m totally an introvert.

#4. If you had a boy and a girl, what would you name them (include middle names)?

I haven’t given too much thought to this, but let’s just through some names out there okay?

Peter Stephen

Natasha Carol

You guys know where those names come from, right?

#5. Would you rather eat vanilla ice-cream with re-fried beans or chocolate cake with ketchup on it?

Ew! Um, I don’t like tomatoes, so I guess I’ll go with the ice cream and beans one? But, ew.

3 Things About Me:

  1. I recently have gotten into diamond painting.
  2. I used to read a ton, then nothing, and now I enjoy reading again.
  3. I’ve been blogging for nearly 6 years!

My Best Posts:

I’ve narrowed it down to 4, but I was nominated for this award twice, so I’ll share 2 for now.

How to Find Inspiration For Posts – This one can be so helpful! I seriously think that these tips can help so many people.

3 DIY Shirt Tutorials – I put a lot of work into making these shirts. I’m really pleased with how they turned out, and I honestly wear that Avengers shirt all the time.

I was also nominated for this award by Sarah!

The Questions:

#1. (for fun) pineapples on pizza?

I mean, I don’t hate it. I also don’t like it. I guess I’m neutral in the matter.

#2. do you believe in fate? if so, why?

Hm. I mean, I do believe that we’re all put here for a reason, and that there are certain things that we were put here to do, but I don’t know if I would call it fate.

#3. if you could revisit your past, would you do so to change it, or relive it?

Relive it. I don’t really know what I would change, and I’d probably just screw something up knowing me.

#4. what age do you feel like right now and why?

Okay, so on one hand I feel 10, and on the other hand I feel 100? I simultaneously feel more mature and less mature than everyone I know…

#5. if you could only keep three of your possessions, what would they be?

Goodness, that’s hard! Well…

  • The books I’ve written(that counts as one, okay?)
  • My phone
  • Brownie

3 (more) Facts About Me:

  1. I have 5 different music apps on my phone.
  2. We’re currently remodeling our kitchen(would any of you be interested in a post about that?)
  3. I currently have an annual pass to Universal.

My Best Posts(again):

Bullet Journal Set-Up 2020 – I think I did a pretty good job on my bullet journal this year. I really like January’s set up!

Village Photoshoot – I feel like this post had wondeful photography! It didn’t get very much attention though. Everyone was probably busy with Christmas. (but go check it out now!)

My Nominees:

I think this award has circulated quite a bit, so I’m simply going to tag anyone who has read 4 or more books this year.

The Questions:

#1. What are the first 5 songs to come up on your playlist on shuffle?(for fun)

#2. What was the last movie you watched?

#3. If you could buy anything at all right now(regardless of price) what would it be?

#4. What is your favorite book?

#5. How do you plan out blog posts?

I wasn’t actually nominated for this, but it looked like a lot of fun when McKayla did it, so I thought I would try it!

The 30 Song Challenge!

1] Your Favorite Song

I’m going with my current favorite song, though I also have an all-time favorite song(you can see that for the last question!)

Used to This by Camila Cabello.

2]Your Least Favorite Song

I’m guessing this means my least favorite song on my playlist? Because there are a lot of songs that I don’t like, but I can’t pick just one least favorite song ever.

I’m going to go with… I Know What You Did Last Summer by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello. Camila’s voice was so annoying and nasal at this point in time, and I honestly am not sure why this song is on my playlist.

3] A Song That Makes You Happy

Mr. Blue Sky by Electric Light Orchestra. You guys know I love Guardians of the Galaxy, so naturally, this song never fails to make me happy when I remember Baby Groot doing his little dance.

4] A Song That Makes You Sad

Soon You’ll Get Better by Taylor Swift. You guys know I love Taylor and all, but I just can’t listen to this song. I think it’s because my mom has health problems too, and it’s just too emotional for me.

5] A Song That Makes You Feel Guilty

I don’t really know about this one. I don’t really feel guilty a lot, and especially not over a song…

6] A Song That Reminds You of Someone

I don’t really know if this counts, but there’s this song called The One That Got Away by Katy Perry and it makes me think of FitzSimmons in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I don’t really care for Katy Perry that much, but I do like this song.

7] A Song That Reminds You of Somewhere

I remember Me! by Taylor Swift came out around the time where we went to Universal. I remember listening to it for the first time in the car ride there. So, whenever I hear it, I think of Universal.

8] A Song That Reminds You of a Certain Event

This is kind of weird, but when I hear Selena Gomez songs I think of hotels and malls. Like, I’ve heard a Selena Gomez song in most of the malls I’ve ever been in. I’ll pick Wolves, since that is tied to a specific memory(we ordered a lot of food at that hotel…)

9] A Song You Know All the Words To

I’m really bad at memorizing things…

Let me see, what is a song that I haven’t mentioned yet, but I know pretty well?

I know! Last Dance by Dua Lipa! I have a pretty good memory of this song, but I don’t know if I know all the lyrics.

10] A Song You Could Dance To

I have a lot of dance pop songs on my playlist guys…

I’m ultimately going to go with So Am I by Ava Max, because I have to include Ava Max somewhere on this list.

11] A Song That Makes You Fall Asleep

Sad Beautiful Tragic by Taylor Swift. It’s just such a relaxing song…

12] A Song From Your Favorite Band

I don’t really like a lot of bands, but I guess my favorite would be The Girl and the Dreamcatcher. (I figured that up based on how many songs I like out of all their songs.) I’ll pick Written In The Stars.

13] A Song From a Band You Hate

Okay, I’m just going to go with an artist I dislike for this one, because I really don’t listen to that many bands! I pick breathin‘ by Ariana Grande. I’m not a big fan of her, but I do really like breathin‘.

14] A Song No One Would Expect You To Love

Eastside by benny blanco. I actually found this song through Pandora, and I didn’t care for it all that much at first, but now I like it quite a bit. It sounds a little different than some of my usual stuff though.

15] A Song That Describes You

Real Friends by Camila Cabello.

Do you know how hard it is to find a song that isn’t about love? Like, it’s insanely hard. But I really like songs that are about other things, which is probably why I like this one so much.

16] A Song You Used to Love but Now Hate

Never Really Over by Katy Perry. I wouldn’t say I loved this song, but I did like it a bit more than I do now. It just didn’t hold up for me.

17] A Song You Hear Often on the Radio

Beautiful People by Ed Sheeran.

18] A Song You Wish You Heard on the Radio

Anything by Sabrina Carpenter to be honest! I’ll pick In My Bed for now.

19] A Song From Your Favorite Album

State of Grace by Taylor Swift. I love the album Red so, so much.

20] A Song You Listen to When You’re Happy

No Promises by Cheat Codes. I mean, I don’t really have a specific song that I listen to when I’m happy, but I had to incude this song sometime.

21] A Song You Listen to When You’re Sad

Something’s Gotta Give by Camila Cabello.

22] A Song You Listen to When You’re Angry

To be honest anything off of Reputation is good, though I think I’ll pick I Did Something Bad for that one.

23] A Song You Want to Play at Your Wedding

To be honest I don’t really want to get married, but I do think Say You Won’t Let Go by James Arthur would be a nice wedding song.

24] A Song You Want to Play at Your Funeral

I probably wouldn’t do this, but just browsing through my playlist for this one Photograph by Ed Sheeran stuck out. I don’t really have a lot of funeral songs on my playlist, but it’s kind of a nice sad-but-happy song.

25] A Song That Makes You Laugh

I mean, pretty much anything from Guardians of the Galaxy! I’m going with Come a Little Bit Closer, because I firmly believe that is one of the best scenes in all of cinematic history.

26] A Song You Can Play

Um, I can’t really play music very well. I can read music okay, but I haven’t really practiced piano in a really long time. I’ll have to pass on this one.

27] A Song You Wish You Could Play

Ugh, just one! I have a whole list of piano pop. Like, it’s just so elegant you know? But, I actually think I’m just going to go with a classic instrumental piece…The Avengers by Alan Silverstri!

What? Did you think I was actually going to do a classical piece?

28] A Song in a Foreign Language You Like

I don’t really listen to music in other languages. But, do songs that have parts of other languages count? Because I like Say My Name by Bebe Rehxa, and it has a Spanish portion to it.

29] A Song From Your Childhood

I think basically anything off of the album Fearless by Taylor Swift.

How about You Belong With Me?

30] Your Favorite Song at This Time Last Year

This is really my all time favorite song(like, I don’t think I’ll ever like another song more).

Drumroll please…

All Too Well by Taylor Swift!

I don’t think that was hard to guess. I mean, you guys know I love Taylor Swift, you know I love the album Red, and I’ve also said this was my favorite song. Many times, actually.

Well, only a fourth of those were Taylor Swift, so I included a bit of variety 😉

Here’s a Spotify playlist where you can find all of these songs!

I tag…anyone who has over 300 songs on their playlist!

  1. Award posts are lots of fun.
    You have great taste in music.
    BABY GROOT. He’s so adorable. That scene in Guardians 2 was great (honestly, I love both but I feel like Guardians 2 was a little funnier).
    Honestly, I’m really bad at picking favorites.
    Ooh, what unread books do you have? Maybe there’s some I’ve read.
    Personality tests are cool. I’m an ambivert so I’m never really sure if I’m an ENTP or an INTP. I switch off between those two results.
    My lucky number is six. It’s also fandom-related.
    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D! It’s my second favorite show.
    Have you ever seen Warehouse 13 or Firefly? Both are good shows and kinda remind me of AoS.

    1. Thank you!

      I honestly do feel like Guardians 2 is funnier too! I think it’s all due to Baby Groot though.

      What unread books do I have? Um…5 KOTLC books, 2 Lunar Chronicles books, the Selection book 1, Heartless, Renegades, Skyward, Divergent, Voice of Dominion, Twilight, the first Percy Jackson book, The Crown’s Game, and Matched. I know that sounds like a lot, but I have a used bookstore that sells cheap books, plus we have store credit there. Also, I’m a slow reader😁

      Yeah, I know some people don’t always fit into just one of the 16 personality types.

      Ooh really? Which fandom is that?

      I haven’t seen either of those shows. But maybe someday!

  2. Yup. Baby Groot is awesome.
    Well, I’ve read KOTLC, Skyward, Percy Jackson, Renegades, Heartless, and I think I read The Selection. Used bookstores are great. I’m a fast reader but I get distracted easily.
    It’s from a show called Battlestar Galactica. Basically, there are twelve humanoid robots and my favorite is the sixth out of twelve.
    You’d like them, I think. Firefly was created by Joss Whedon, who wrote AoS and directed the first Avengers movie.

  3. Oh wowwww, that IS quite a lot of awards. XD But I’ll probably have more when I get to them because *cough* I procrastinate way too much…and congratulations on winning Best New Blog! That’s awesome!

  4. I dunno if its just me…. but… sometimes I pretend I’m in an interview on like a book I wrote, and that it was so good they’re turning it into a movie. Or just a normal interview. I dunno why I thought of this reading this post, but, I guess I like it when people answer questions!
