TSFHF x Liebster Award

I recently got nominated for the Liebster award by Cake and Whisky and Raierinrose which is a blog award given to smaller blogs by other bloggers.  I'm so excited to receive a nomination! Thanks to both these lovely people, and check out their blogs!

The rules for the Liebster Award are: 

  1. Thank and link the person who tagged you.
  2. Answer the nominator’s 11 questions.
  3. Nominate small blogs who have less than 200 followers you believe deserve this award and include their link in your post.
  4. Create 11 new questions for your nominees to answer.
  5. Notify the nominees.

The first set of questions are from Cake and Whiskey:

  1. 5 things you always have in your fridge?  Hummus, Salad, Hot Sauce, Tortillas, and Milk.
  2. The most beautiful shoes you’ve ever seen? Everything from Modern Vice!!! They make the greatest boots ever.
  3. The quality you value over every other? In people, probably satire. In things, usefulness.
  4. The ultimate comfort food? Probably cookies.  I don't particularly assign any food as comforting.
  5. The website I should definitely add to my read-list? Fast Company.  It’s a mixture of the latest news in tech, company, and modern things.
  6. Your ultimate pizza toppings? The Nisha’s special: roasted red peppers, spinach, and white sauce
  7. Your favourite colour? Black.
  8. What you dream to get for your birthday? I turn 21 this year, so I definitely want to take a road trip to go see Twenty One Pilots in concert.
  9. What should I eat tonight? Tiramisu.
  10. Biggest pet peeve(s)? If there's anything to get peeved about, it's people who say and do contradictory things.
  11. What do you always ask your mom to cook for you? Chicken kabobs.

Next set of questions from Raierinrose:

  1. Where do you want to travel to most? Io voglio viaggiare in Italia (I want to travel to Italy).  I'm minoring in Italian, so I definitely want to get some use out of it.
  2. 5 things you can't leave home without? Phone, glasses, planner, headphones,  and some candy.
  3. Who is your biggest inspiration? Kevin Pearce.  He's a snowboarder who suffered a traumatic brain injury but still is very positive about everything.  His story has always inspired me.
  4. Favourite book? Why? I don’t really have a favorite book, but I do love Of Mice & Men.  It's short and simple with its message.
  5. Why did you start blogging? I started it for my media writing class, but I continued to get more writing experience out there, and also in hopes of someday quitting my day job, but we'll see.
  6. What do you love blogging about most?  I like that I don't have to write because someone else told me to.  Even though I do set deadlines for myself, it's still up to me what I post and when I post it.
  7. How do you get motivated? By listening to a lot of upbeat and positive music.  However, failure is also a huge motivator for me.  I'm always quick to jump back in and learn from my mistakes.
  8. Favourite food? Chicken n' waffles.  This is basically the only thing southern about me.  
  9. How would you explain your style?  Random and grungy.  I tried to get away from the fact that I wear a lot of black, but I'm starting to embrace it more. 
  10. Do you have to read the book then watch the movie? Or does it not matter? I usually do want to read the book before the movie, but I usually get really lazy and read half of it then watch the movie.
  11. Favourite fictional character? Tom Haverford!!!!
