[Tag] 11 Questions/Answers for the Liebster Award

Another one of these things, because why not. Thanks go to Girl in Between for the tag!


  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  2. Answer 11 questions given to yoby the blogger.
  3. Nominate 11 more bloggers.
  4. Ask your nominees 11 questions too.
  5. Notify the selected nominees you chose after uploading your post, like commenting on their post.

1. Why did you start blogging?

Probably not the main reason, but to change things up (since I’ve answered this question plenty of times), blogging is a way to practice having thoughts on things and expressing them. And I was an English major and I wanted to have “WordPress skills” and “writing samples” for job purposes at the time.

2. Coffee or tea?

Whichever, as long as with milk/cream and some sort of sweetener.

3. What are your hobbies?

I like to do many things but I’m not consistent at any of them. The last three activities I engaged in that I do semi-regularly are reading, singing, and taking a meandering walk.

4. What is/are the best thing(s) that happened in your life?

I am fortunate to live the life that I live, and it is quite impossible to single out a “best” thing or even a few best things. The most enjoyable thing that happened today was trying to decipher a French picture book with a precocious kid in the library, neither of us knowing any French.

5. What is your favourite movie?

Howl’s Moving Castle.

6. What are your pet peeves?

  • People who take up more than half of the escalator and just stand there
  • Birds making any sort of noise before 8 am
  • Loud air conditioners
  • Call centre representatives who repeatedly interrupt you to unnecessarily declare that they are there to help and that everything will be okay, while not listening to the actual problem
  • Cafes with iPad tipping options that start higher than 15%

7. Do you have any books, movies, or shows to recommend? If so, what are they?

Three recent pieces of media that I enjoyed, the first for its candidness on a subject that is often heavy-handedly handled, the second for creeping me out (I am better than the average person at suspending disbelief), and the third for a refreshing cast and setting:

  • Book: Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid
  • Movie: Julia’s Eyes (2010)
  • Show: Derry Girls (2018)

8. Do you have a life motto or a principle you live by? If so, what is it?

If you dislike your circumstances, change them; if you can’t change them, adapt to them.

9. Are you an introvert or extrovert?


10. If any, what do you want to change in your life right now?

I want to sleep better, please and thank you.

11. How are you feeling right now? 

My Questions

  1. What is your best tip for a good night’s sleep?
  2. If you get to own three plants that magically never have to be watered and always thrive on their own, which three plants would you choose?
  3. What’s your opinion on the true crime genre?
  4. If you had to doodle a sun, how many rays would you typically give it?
  5. Do you like chocolates with caramel inside? (Why would anyone like those)
  6. Do you like blueberries?
  7. What diet trend can you never imagine yourself trying?
  8. What’s the worst nickname you’ve heard someone call their significant other?
  9. Tie or bowtie?
  10. Are you a good liar?
  11. What kind of cake should I bake for your birthday?


Zero obligation, especially since this is such an old tag. ๐Ÿ™‚
