I've Been Tagged...Twice

Both Jake and Eruantien Nenharma have tagged me.

First, Jake with the

award, and then

Eruantien with the

Thank you!

The rules for the Liebster:

- If you are tagged/nominated, you must post eleven facts about yourself.

- Then, you must answer the eleven questions the tagger has given you and make eleven questions for the people you are going to tag.

- Next, tag eleven more bloggers.

- Tell the people you tagged that you have tagged them

- No tagging back.

- The person you tagged must have less than 200 followers.

And for the Lovely Blogger:
1. You have to thank the person who nominated you on their blog to receive your honour.
     (already done in a comment)

2. You have to tell 7 things about yourself and human canoe counts!

3. You have to nominate 15 blogs and then tell them of their nomination!

Well, here goes:

1.) I sometimes slip into a Scottish accent (and then my friends and family make fun of me)

2.) I love traveling

3.) I play the trombone

4.) I can also play piano, clarinet, and tin whistle (though not officially. I can really only play songs by ear on those instruments - I can only read bass clef)

5.) God gave me the gift of being able to understand people

6.) I love climbing (rocks are a lot easier when you're barefoot)

7.) I plan on learning as many languages as I can, getting my pilots' liscence, and becoming a Missionary Pilot

8.) Contrary to popular belief, I am, in fact, a girl.

9.)  I love shoes and going barefoot

10.) If you want to know how my mind works, pay close attention to the main characters of Sherlock and Doctor Who

11.) I despise Google.

12.) I'm an intovert and I love people

13.) I'm made for British weather

14.) I don't like constancy. It makes life boring and predictable.

15.) I don't like pointless things or conversation. Life is short - why waste it on things that don't matter?

16.) According to the Myers-Briggs, I'm an INTP/INFP

17.) I make jewelry

18.) People really like me, but I can sit in a roomful of said people for a long time, and no one will talk to me.

Now for the questions:

1.) What's your favorite place in the world?
     Well. I've been to all but sixteen states, and there are soo many places I haven't seen yet. So my favorite place that I haven't been is either Scotland, Ireland, Wales, or Nothern Ireland.
My favorite places that I have been are either Colorado, Kansas, Maryland, Piatt Park (in central Ohio), Georgia (though I could never live there - it's much too hot and humid), Washington, and the coast of Northern California

2.) What do you think about Kansas? (>:D)
     Love it! Actually, I've been craving the endless fields and hills and skies for about four months now. I only hate how the trees are far, few, and not normally good climbing ones (at least from what I've seen), and the feed lots stink like you wouldn't believe - and it's the food, not the cows' excrement that smells so horribly (or were those in Nebraska?).

3.) Favorite song?
    I can't pick. But my favorite genres are Celtic (instrumental), classical, some Opera, soundtracks, and a band called Flatfoot56.
4.) Favorite quote?
    I don't have one.

5.) G. K. Chesterton is, to you, what? Your opinion?
    A brilliantly mad philosopher that loves rabbit-chasing and has an amazing writing style.

6.) Best speculative fiction you've read recently? In absence of speculative fiction, what's the best book you've read recently, non-fiction or fiction?
    I haven't read much lately, actually. Quite honestly, I haven't finished a book in weeks.

7.) Best kind of cookie?

8.) Your opinion of pie?
     Better than cake

9.) What color is your favorite shirt?

10.) Are you procrastinating?

11.) If you're a writer, what are you currently writing? If you're not a writer, what big thing have you done recently?
      I'm a writer, but I'm not currently writing anything. Unless thoughts in a journal count.

And my questions:

1.) What matters to you the most, honestly?

2.) Are you a leader, or a follower?

3.) When was the last time you had a deep and meaningful conversation with someone?

4.) What do you want to do with your life?

5.) What, in your opinion, makes people insecure? (please think deeply on this one)

6.) Do you watch television? (if so, what shows do you like, and why?)

7.) If you had one month to live, and money was no object, what would you do?

8.) Are you going to watch the Olympics? (if so, what events?)

9.) What do you do in your spare time?

10.) What do you dream of?

11.) What's your favorite season?

12.) What do you think of bow ties?

13.) Do you wear hats?

14.) Shoe size?

15.) What do you see yourself doing in 20 years?

16.) If you had to move to another country under an alias, where and what would it be?

17.) If you were to be remembered for one thing, what would you want it to be?)

18.) What are your thoughts on society?

Because two tags at once get confusing, I've decided to morph it into a new one.

So, I tag

Nikko at Bagpipes and Ink

Flora at Welcome to my World

Charley at The Leaning Tower of Plot

Silver Angel at Silver Angel's Musings
