Liebster Award

**Not to be confused with lobster award (that's how I read it at first). This, by the way, is a lobster I was supposed to eat at the beach and instead had a photo-shoot with it.

Despite my poor reading skills and my little knowledge of German (I went there 2 Summer's ago), I know that Liebster means dearest or favorite. So thank you so much to Octavia and Enid for nominating me =D. 

~The rules for the award are~:

1.      List 11 facts about yourself
2.      Answer the 11 questions the blogger who nominated you left
3.      Ask 11 new questions for those you nominate
4.      Choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers to nominate
5.      Go to each bloggers page and let them know about the award
6.      Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog

~Well here we go. 11 facts about moi~:

  1. I love to dance and sing and act. I am usually doing some sort of play/musical or dance performance, but this has halted since I started living in Tennessee for school. It's actually pretty sad.
  2. I have been playing the piano for going on 18 years. I do play by ear, but I've been working on getting to where I can pretty much sight read anything.
  3. I am really emotional. The other day I was just trying to describe the scene in Tarzan where the mother gorilla comforts Tarzan when he feels left out by putting his hand on her heart and telling him they aren't that different at all, and I got choked up and tears started flowing. (No lie, I just teared up typing it) Good thing my boyfriend doesn't write me off as crazy.
  4. Speaking of lies, I absolutely hate lying, and I can almost 98% of the time tell when people are lying to me. I speak honestly (sometimes coming off as a bit blunt), and I expect others to be honest with me.
  5. I'm very much an introvert. People who hang out with me have a hard time believing it, because I do like to be social sometimes and have fun, but I have to have the majority of my nights at home or I'm really unhappy. I have to mentally prepare myself before I leave the house, and sometimes if I'm asked to go somewhere spontaneously I am very anxious about it. Other times I'm fine with it.
  6. I was diagnosed with pure OCD when I was 18. The pure part of it means it's mostly all in my head, and I don't show a lot of signs of outward compulsions. All the compulsive traits lie within my head. A huge pet peeve of mine (one that will downright infuriate me) is when everyone feels like they have OCD, because they are made slightly uncomfortable when certain things aren't in order. No, that's not OCD. Just stop.
  7. I'm deathly afraid of being in tight spaces where I'd be trapped without being able to move or breathe a.k.a. claustrophobia. Even if I just think about being in a crawl space, coffin, under a small bed I get really panicky. Dad passed it on to me.
  8. I love animals and kids. I have this ability of "adopting" kids while I'm out and about. Adopting meaning they walk up to me and stare at me and grab my hand. The other day while I was just walking through the classroom with Patrick a girl reached out and grabbed my arm and gave me a huge smile. My friends say it's probably because I have huge Disney princess' eyes.
  9. I love to laugh and make other people laugh.
  10. I really enjoy video games. I love to play and watch them (thank goodness, because my boyfriend plays them nonstop and works at a video game store). My favorite games include: ehh too many to think of. I'll probably edit them in later when I'm less lazy.
  11. I'd love to live in New York City for a spell.

~Now to answer the 11 questions Enid left me~:

1. If you could only wear one colour for the rest of your life what would it be?

Oh wowza. My favorite color is orange, but I'd have to go with red.

2.If you could go back in time and offer advice to the 15 year old you what would you say?

Haha. I'd say don't worry about any of these people. Most are going to drop out due to pregnancy, and you're going to meet much more open minded people as you get older.

3. Who inspires you the most?

I'm going to go with an answer other than, "my dad." Kate Winslet is a huge inspiration to me, because she is so poised and confident and doesn't let what critics say about her hinder her in the slightest. She's so talented and beautiful and classic.

4. If you could have a theme song to your life what would it be?

Haha my theme song would definitely be Jessica by the Allman brothers. It's my name, but it's also fun.

5. Did you have an imaginary friend/pet when you were little and if so what was their   name?

I did not. I did have a huge imagination though , and I'd constantly pretend to be different professions. I would teach my class of stuffed animals all the time until my sister was born.

6. What is the one talent you don’t have but really wish you did?

I wish I could play the cello.

7. What did you want to be when you grew up and are you doing it/still want to do it?

I at first wanted to be a marine biologist. Then I wanted to be an electrical engineer (I don't even know), and then I was decided on being a ballerina or on Broadway. As I got even older I thought it would be cool to make a living off of music. I'm going to school for Audio Production so I'm sort of doing it haha. I still want to be on Broadway though.

8. If you could experience being any kind of animal for one day what would you be?

Oh gosh definitely a bird without a question. I'd chirp beautiful songs and fly as high as I could go. Well that and be cute as a button.

9. If you could conquer one of your fears what would it be?

My fear of auditions. I'd love to be able to audition confidently and to the best of my ability. I mean I mentioned claustrophobia earlier, but I'm fine with that being a fear and honestly I can avoid coffins and crawl spaces with no problemo. 

10. If you could turn your life story so far into a book what genre would it be?

Horror. Haha, jk. 

11. Do you prefer rainy days or  sunny days?

I prefer sun during the day and rain in the evening.
