20 random thangs

Just because I thought it would be kinda fun, to step out and say hi and also vow to you other blogging people that I want to be a serious blogger and tags totally show how serious of a blogger you are, giving random facts about yourself and all that . . . yeah. So if you want, here is a “get-to-know-me” kind of post that is very, very random, because I am random (there’s an extra random fact.)

1. How tall are you?
ONLY SHORT. I’m just short. I am shy of my desired 5’5″ by two freaking inches. It depresses me (XD). I come from a family of many short people, so I guess it was meant to be. I did manage to surpass my mom’s height, so I guess that’s a tiny ripple of fortune. *laughs*

2. Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?

I am excellent at identifying faces, like actors and actresses in movies, and I remember what other movie I saw them on. I can also memorize historical facts/dates/names/trivia. Especially about the history I cherish. :3

3. What’s your biggest blog related pet peeve?
Um, I saw this answer somewhere else but I agree. A frumpy blog design is sort of off-putting, idk. :/

4. What’s your biggest non-blog related peeve?
Uhhhh, on a serious, honest note, I would have to say the hypocrisy of the left-wing media and liberals who promote equality on the part of certain people groups but “discriminate in the name of discrimination” when it comes to Christians speaking out on their beliefs, Bible-based convictions, I could say more, but not now. Not now. :O

OH, and tumblr really gets on my nerves sometimes. ;/

5. What’s your favourite song?

Maps by Maroon5 and Rather Be by Clean Bandit

and Forever (We Sing Hallelujah) by Kari Jobe

6. What’s your favourite etsy store that isn’t yours?
I . . . don’t get on etsy, but I should!

7. What’s your favourite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?
Listening to music and fantasizing, writing, reading, drawing, looking at art by favorite artists . . . and watching movies and TV is just marvelous too.

8. What’s your favourite junk food?
I’ll just be open-ended and say Chocolate because there is so much potential there: white chocolate peppermint cake (I made this for Christmas last year), choc. chip pumpkin bread, choc. chip cookies, brownies, fudgy ice-cream, chocolate icing, cake . . . ohhmahgoodness . . .
 9. Do you have a pet?
Two beagles–Sadie and Olivia. I threaten my parents that I’ll bring home a kitten sometime but they just laugh in that way that says, “DON’T even think about it” (I am surrounded by cat loathers).

10. What is your top favourite non-fiction and fiction book?
Non-fiction: St. Augustine’s Confessions inspires me and impacts me unfathomably, and I also love Clay S. Jenkinson’s The Character of Meriwether Lewis. Those are probably my top two.

Fiction: Gone With the Wind, Perelandra (C.S. Lewis), Eclipse by Richard S. Wheeler. I must have three top favorites, not one.

11. What’s your favourite beauty product?
Lips gloss! I like givin mah lips a good shine XD

12. When were you last embarrassed? What happened?
Oh, I get embarrassed a lot. I am pretty much Anna from Frozen as far as awkwardness goes. So this gives me too many options open for the time I was “last embarrassed” *grimaces*.

13. If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?
MILK. Or better yet, HOT COCOA. I have a serious thing with hot cocoa. It is like a comfort-blanket to me.

14. What’s your favourite movie?
Ah, I love classics (of course.) North and South which still counts–it is a very long movie (miniseries 😉

15. What were you in highschool? (Prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, band geek, valedictorian, loner, artist, prep, etc.?)

I was the shy artistic girl, very awkward and also very nerdy. (I STILL AM, AHAHA) I’m not sure how this applies to being homeschooled but being homeschooled did not discourage my fitting into the classic “nerdy homeschooler” cliche. *shrugs*

16. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
I would live either in a vintage house in Virginia (preferably at Harper’s Ferry) or in the Northwest, Seattle area! Orr, maybe Rome. I shall get to do that for one semester at my uni, and this fact freaks me out (in a very good way)

17. PC or Mac?
I’ve only ever known PC, but I bet it would always PC nevertheless

18. Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?
A very warm sense that my man is out there somewhere and someday I will meet him. I love those kinds of feels.

19. Favourite celebrity?
Ben Carson! Rick Santorum!
To speak in pop-culture terms, I would have to say Tom Hiddleston. Did you see it coming?
Oh yes, and we can’t forget Meriwether. He definitely counts.

20. What blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?

Mirriam Neal and Pepper J. Darcy! I admire and respect them so much and their passion for creativity and life inspires me beyond words.
