Liebster Award

The lovely Emilyann Girdner gave me a Liebster Award! Which means I finally have something to blog about. Thanks Emilyann, and all my blog followers! Y'all mean a lot to me. <3

The Liebster Blog Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. “Liebster” is German for “favorite”. This award is considered a "favorite blog award."

The rules of the Liebster Award are:Answer the blogger's eleven questions.Think of eleven questions of your own.Choose eleven worthy bloggers (with fewer than 200 followers) to pay it forward.

1. What is your favorite song?
Favorite ever? Oh my goodness. I'm gonna go with To Build a Home by The Cinematic Orchestra. But my current favorite is State of Grace by Taylor Swift. It's perfection.

2. Cats or Dogs? Why?
Dogs. Puppies--especially yorkshire terriers--are the most adorable things ever. Though kittens are a close second.

3. What is your favorite book from childhood?
The Giver by Lois Lowry

4. If you had to pick a different occupation, what would it be?

5. Do you have a favorite flower?
Not really...pansies are pretty.

6. Mac or PC?
I LOVE my Macbook Pro. <3

7. Who would you pick if you had the opportunity to interview a historical figure?
The Doctor. He isn't real, you say? Psh.
Maybe Hitler. That'd be interesting, especially since I can't understand German.

8. Do you believe in love at first sight?
I didn't used to...but yes, I do. I think it's possible.

9. What is your favorite genre of book and why?
YA sci-fi and fantasy because it's the ultimate escape, and yet it often encompasses everything I feel or want to be.

10. What are you most proud of in life?
My writing. The fact that it's something I started at such a young age and stuck with, so that I accomplished half of my writing goals before turning twenty.

11. What obstacle has been the toughest for you to overcome in your life?
Self-esteem, particularly in the area of beauty. I have jaw issues similar to TMJ--but without the pain, thank goodness--that resulted in five years of braces, jaw surgery, and another surgery I have to have later this year. So, life's been tough in that respect. Though I feel extremely blessed in some other areas.


Ohh man, I have no idea who to tag. Seriously. So, YOU, you super-mega-foxy-awesome-hot person who are reading this, go forth and accept your award! Answer the questions I answered above. Because I'm lazy. And have a school project I need to finish right now. :P

Hope you all have a great week!


  1. I also loved the Giver, and also love my Macbook Pro!

  2. I have TMJ with the pain and had to go through similar things. I went through the years of braces and jaw surgery as well! I totally get all of that and how much it stinks.

    Hope your surgery later this year is successful and you never have to get another one. I'm terrified, I mean, TERRIFIED, of having to go through the pain of jaw surgery again and having my jaw wired shut again. It's not fun.

  3. Congrats again Stephanie, I love your blog and you certainly deserve this award.
    I loved reading your answers! I am completely with you about Macs. I got an IMac a year ago and love love love it.
    You should be very proud of your writing, you have worked hard at the craft and it shows, I look forward to more of it.
    Thanks for sharing your answers :)

  4. The Giver is one of my all-time favourite books! So good. I read it to my classes all the time!

    1. I'll try to edit the post again, but the FB script doesn't seem to play nice when inserted into the body of a post or page >.<
