This has been a big week for me.
First, I was published on The Drabble! The Drabble is an amazing blog that offers short stories that are a hundred words or less. Most of the entries are short, sweet and ended with a major twist, which makes them all very enjoyable to read. I entered a short story, titled One Regret, which was inspired by 642 Things to Write About’s writing prompt “Something You Had That Was Stolen”, and the Drabble published it! That was enough to make my week, but enter exciting event number two…
I was nominated for the Liebster Award by libbystanford on her blog, Life With Libby

Here are the 11 Random Facts about myself-
I just sneezed on my iPad screen.
I like fresh flowers, but only for like the first day they have been cut. Dying or dead flowers freak me out.
Once I separated an entire box of Nerds by their separate colors, then ate them accordingly.
If I could draw, I’d totally ditch this whole writing thing for that.
I was once told I look like Megan Trainor.
I might have sat next to Roy McElroy on a plane once. I can’t be certain, but if it helps identify him any, he was reading Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer.
When I was younger, I wanted to be a Pediatric Oncologist.
I despise the feeling of crushed velvet.
My left arm has two bruises on it.
My right hand might be double jointed.
And now to answer Libby’s questions–
1. What made you want to start blogging?
I can’t remember… It was around the time my family was moving. I had been writing quite a bit, and a friend of mine (whose blog you can check out here
) was telling me about her blog. I had been thinking about blogging for a while, and I guess all the circumstances fell together right, and a blog was born.
2. What is your guilty pleasure?
Nutella. Straight outta the jar.
3. What was the last lie you told?
“I have read and agree to these terms and conditions…”
4. What is your favorite book and why?
Princess Academy, by Shannon Hale. Peder stole my heart long before any other literary guy did, and my heart will forever be in Mount Eskel because of him.
5. If you could go anywhere in the universe, where would you go?
The moon. Can you even imagine seeing our world from so far away?
6. What is your passion?
Making a difference. Whether it’s done online, in my house or in HMV while this older man and I discuss the best crooners- all I want is to make a difference while I’m here.
7. Where do you go to relax?
My room. I have this huge window in my room that face nothing but sheep pastures and open green fields. I can sit cross legged on my bed, cup of coffee in my hands and just watch the quiet green world from my window.
8. What was the weirdest thing that happened to you this week?
An oven died while I was trying to use it.
9. What do you think is the biggest problem with society today?
Lack of respect, plain and simple. Lack of respect for authority, human life and structure. How else can you explain society’s willingness to burn it all to the ground?
10. What is the last text you received?
11. If there was one thing about this world that you could change, what would it be?
I wish everyone could feel true love, even if just for a moment. Perfect love casts out hate, and if just for a moment everyone could know true, real love, I don’t think anyone would choose to hate again.
Once again, thanks to libbystanford
for the nomination! So honored 🙂
I haven’t had time to scout out blogs to nominate, but I want to! Next available moment, I’ll be checking out some new blogs, and I’ll get right on nominating them for this award.
Until then, here’s to being human.
