Liebster Award....Take 2!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Faith from Stories by Firefly tagged me for the Liebster Award and let's just say she comes up with some of the best-est questions ;) They're an awful lot of fun answering! :D 
So, let's get started! 

Ze Rules: 
Link back to the person who tagged you.
Answer their 11 questions.
Tag 11 bloggers.
Ask them 11 questions.
(and you should probably let them know you've tagged them ;)

What is your personality type? 
I took the 16 Personalities Test and it turns out I'm an INFP-T. (aka Introverted: 58%, Intuitive: 92%, Feeling: 93%, Prospecting: 61%, Turbulent: 96%) 

Kinda summed up here:
Oh boy, is this ever me! XD 
What part of writing a blog post takes the longest for you? (Ex. In my case, it takes me longer to find/stick in links and pictures than to actually write the post.) 
Well, that depends. If it's a tag, like this one, then it's usually the writing part that takes the longest. Mostly because I'm trying to come up with what to put down on the spur of the moment. And then there's the editing and deleting and retyping and more get the point ;)  If it's a post that I've got more or less planned out in my head, then it's usually the pictures that take the longest, choosing the right ones and then downloading it. (btw jpg's take longer to download upload than screenshots :P) 

Would you rather smell fresh-cut grass or campfire smoke? 
Fresh cut grass! Especially on cool spring/summer mornings :D 

What's the last song you listened to? (And did you like it?) 
Tell Me A Secret by the Willis Clan. And yes, I did like it! 

What's the last movie you watched? (And did you like it?)
The last movie I watched was The Scarlet Pimpernel (1982). I've been reading the book over again for Literary Analysis and I decided to see if I could find the movie for it on Youtube. There were several different versions, but the one that drew me the most was the coloured ;) And am I ever enjoying it! Marguerite is absolutely beautiful and I can't get over those amazing disguises that Sir Percy pulls off. It's positively astounding! 

They don't even look remotely similar!!! 
But I will refrain from doing a movie review on here. Since this isn't a movie review, this is a tag, right? ;)

What's the last book you finished? (And did you like it?) 
I just finished The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy. (did you know her full name is Baroness Emma Magdolna Rozália Mária Jozefa Borbála "Emmuska" Orczy de Orci?!) It's one of my favourite books and rereading always helps me discover new things that I had missed in previous readings :-) 

Do you have a reading goal for this year? 
No, I don't. I probably should though! Currently, all the books I've read were ones found either in the library or the thrift store. Or were needed for school. Or were rereads. But yeah. No specific list. 

Would you rather use a pen or a pencil? If you chose pen, what color of ink? 
Ohhh...definitely a pen! Fountain pen to be exact. They're so nice and smooth and flow-y. Black ink would be the most ideal colour. 

What's your favorite historical time period? 
Goodness, Faith, did you have to ask that question?! You just love finding the most torturous questions, dontcha? ;) Let's see - I really like WWII - but then there's Laura I. Wilder and the 1800's - and Ancient Rome - and basically the whole history of England - *throws up hands* It's impossible to choose a favourite historical time period! I'm a history lover.... I like 'em all! 

Describe yourself in one sentence. (It's almost a question.) 
I'm a 16 year old girl who loves Christ and my family, enjoys singing, photography, listening to music, baking, and analyzing, is rather quiet and not supremely talkative, loves curling up in a corner with a good book, values friendship, is sometimes quite the country mouse, loves writing and receiving letters, emails, and comments (hint, hint :P), adores babies, has a hard time choosing favourites, procrastinates, uses emoticons too much, and apparently also uses too many commas :P
('Course, Faith didn't say that it had to be a grammatically correct sentence, but I'm fairly certain that this is a run-on. XD)

Do you enjoy tags? (Or are you only filling this out because you feel obligated? B-))
Yes, indeedy, I do enjoy tags! They're lots of fun to answer, even if a certain someone makes some rather -ahem- hard questions ;) 

Thank you for tagging me, Faith! :D 

Now for the people I tag: 

Victoria N. from Blessed Beyond Measure
Rebekah Morris from Rebekah's Reading Room 
Miss March from Sunshiny Corner
Sarah from Trusting in the Lord
Sawyer from The Maretzki Family
Emma from A Lantern in Her Hand

I've taken a few of the questions Faith asked me just 'cause they're really interesting ;) 
Anyhoo - your questions are: 

1. What is your personality type?
2. What part of writing a blog post takes the longest for you? (writing, pictures, links, etc)
3. Your favourite song from this week?
4. Has spring arrived for you yet? 
5. Tea and toast or a bowl of cereal for breakfast? 
6. Favourite singer?
7. What is one of the wildest, most beautiful dream you've ever had? (can be either a daydream or a ... night dream. *crickets chirping* Is there such a thing as a night dream? ) 
8. Playing the piano or running outside with a cool summer's breeze blowing in your face? 
9. Favourite author? (or if it'll make it easier, favourite book? ;)
10. Emails or letters? 
11. Do you like collecting things? And if yes, what? 


  1. Great answers! I enjoyed reading them. :)

    "And then there's the editing and deleting and retyping and more get the point ;)" Hahaha. That sounds like me. I spend WAY too much time going over and over my posts, trying to get them JUST right. ;)

    You watched the Scarlet Pimpernel! Isn't that such a fun movie? It's been a favorite of our family's for years. And you're right, they did an excellent job with the disguises. :)

    Oh my goodness! Now THAT is a name! I never knew Baroness Orczy's full name, and I have a feeling I'm not going to remember it either. Haha. Too much to memorize! ;)

    I like the description of yourself. It sounds a lot like me. I'm not extremely talkative, either. I analyze things (probably too much), love babies, love comments, have a hard time choosing favorites, am very good at procrastinating, love curling up with a good book...I guess I can relate to pretty much everything you said! (And yes, I've got that problem with using too many commas, too. Heehee. ;))

    Thank you so much for tagging me. You came up with some fun questions, and I'm really looking forward to answering them!

    And by the way, I love that verse from Philippians 4. I have it on my blog, too! :D

    ~Miss March

    1. Thank you, Miss March! :)

      Haha, yep, we’re the perfectionists ;)

      YES, the Scarlet Pimpernel is absolutely amazing! I had only seen snippets before, but yesterday I watched the entire thing from beginning to end. It was so much fun and beautiful and awesome and oh-so-delightful! :D And it’s really quite clean too! :)

      Oh really? *goes to your blog* You do have the same verse! That is so cool! :D

      Can’t wait to see your post! :D

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

    1. I'll read the whole of your post later, but I thought it was funny that we have a very similar personality! I am also introverted and several of the other things you mentioned.

    2. That's amazing, Bethany! :) It's strangely funny how many people you meet through blogs that share the same personality ;)

  3. Ah, The Scarlet Pimpernel...yes, it's an awesome series. :) I did know how long her name was. Quite a mouthful, huh? ;) Aren't you glad we Americans (and Canadians) don't give our children all those names? Especially the hard-to-pronounce ones. ;)

    1. Oh, have your read the whole series? How did you find the sequels? Did you like them?

      Haha, yes. And no. MOST Americans and Canadians don't give their children hard-to-pronounce names. I've encountered a few people and it gets embarrassing at times when you have to ask more than twice how to pronounce their name. Or you don't ask at all and then you find out that you said it horribly wrong :P

  4. YOU'RE INFP-T?? So am I!!! :D I love that first graphic for 'us' too. ;)
    I haven't read/watched "The Scarlet Pimpernel", but it sounds interesting. :P
    Ahh, yes. Smooth, flow-y pens are so lovely. ^_^
    Hehe, aren't I awful to ask your favorite time period? ;) I love asking the tough questions. Mwahahaha!!
    And a one sentence self-description... Honestly, I was expecting run-ons. XD

    Thanks for filling out the tag, Blessing!!! :D I enjoyed reading your answers. :)

    1. Hello fellow INFP-T! :D

      Oh, you should totally watch the Scarlet Pimpernel!! But I would suggest reading the book first because the movie gives away one of the best spoilers at the beginning ;)

      *sobs* Yes, you were too awful ;) *shakes finger* XD

      That's good you were expecting run-ons because honestly, who can give an accurate one sentence self-description WITHOUT making a run-on? :P

      Thanks for tagging me, Faith! I enjoyed YOUR questions!! . . .

      except that history one ;)

  5. I had so much fun reading your answers, Blessing! :)
    I loved that picture of the girl talking about Pluto. That is definitely me. ;) I know what I want to say in my head, but actually trying to tell someone is totally different. ;)

  6. Thank you, Rebekah!
    Haha, yeah, that picture is very relatable. . . unfortunately :P


Hi! Thanks for stopping by! :)
I LOVE comments, so please do leave one! I will try and reply as soon as possible :D If you comment under Anonymous, please leave a name (it can be made up or real, your choice ;)
Oh, and as you all probably know, my family and I are under pseudonyms (you didn’t really think I had a brother named Spiderman or Ironman, did ya? We’re weird, but not 'that' weird! :P) If you do know our real names, please don’t say it in the comment box. Public safety stuff ;) Thanks!

Finally, brothers (and sisters!), whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things
