The Amazing You Tag – Two Year Blogiversary.

Well! I’m going to admit that I was not planning on posting today, but something made me change my mind.

Something quite large and interesting, actually.

You see, on my computer’s calendar, I had an event marked for today. And guess what?

It’s this blog’s second blogiversary!!!

That’s right. I’ve been around in the blogosphere with this blog for two years. So let’s get this party started!!!

avengers-party

It’s not my birthday, but oh well.

Instead of something like the blogiversary post I did over on The World of the Writer, I thought I’d do something that I’ve wanted to do for a while now: start my own tag.

So here, my friends, is the Amazing You Tag.

AmazingYouTag

This tag has ten questions, which stay the same every time you pass it on. The rules are as follows:

  1. Thank the person who tagged you.
  2. Include the picture in your post and tag it with “amazingyou”.
  3. Answer the questions.
  4. Tag as many people as you want.

On to the questions!

1. You’re on a deserted island, and you find a cave. What would you expect to find in it?

2. If you could have one superpower, which would you pick?

3. What one song would you choose for the theme music for a movie about your life?

4. You can only wear one color for the rest of your life. What color would you pick?

5. What’s one thing you want to do that’s wild, crazy, or unusual?

6. If you had to give a speech to the whole world for five minutes, what topic would it be about?

7. You get to have lunch with any three famous people, present or past! Who would you pick?

8. What is your favorite smell, and why?

9. Share one of your favorite quotes.

10. Give us two true statements about yourself and one false statement, and see if your followers can guess which one is false.

This blog would not be what it is if I didn’t have all of you awesome followers, so I tag every single one of you! However, I know that it’s best to tag some people specifically, so I shall.

First off, a special tag to erinkenobi2893! Happy blogiversary! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sarah @ Lights And Shadows, Gabrielle @ Write For The King,ย Mandie @ Mandie’s World,ย Freakishly Fangirlish @ Insomniac Fangirl,ย both Sierra and Rebecca @ 26 Countless Possibilities,ย writefury, awkwardlyartistic, and everyone else!

Have a wonderful day, everyone! And enjoy! (Don’t feel obligated to do this is you got tagged. It’s just for fun!)

Awkwardly Artistic

Don’t you just love alliteration?

My dear friend has just started her own blog!

This is what I like to call “shameless friend promotion” (Get it???). Anyway, she’s awesome, an amazing artist, a great writer, actress extraordinaire, and a quirky introverted teenager *cough*ย like meย *cough* although you won’t be able to tell by the way she writes! So go check out her blog! I dare you! ๐Ÿ˜€

And, in case you missed the first two links, here’s the address:

The Versatile Blogger Award

So I realized that I’d never accepted this award from the amazing icedmocha34. So… I’m doing that now. ๐Ÿ˜€

Seven Random Facts About Me

  1. I may seem like I have good comebacks and nice witty lines sometimes, but… ha-ha… yeah. It always takes me a long time to think of those, usually a week or two afterwards. Although there is the occassional one that actually works out.
  2. My room is a graveyard. A graveyard of unfinished projects that
  3. I can’t resist a chance to make someone laugh. (As if you couldn’t tell by my comparing my room to a graveyard and then not finishing the sentence about unfinished projects…)
  4. I seem to use “…” a lot at the end of sentences… I guess my thoughts tend to trail off. Go ahead. Count every time I do that in this post. And comments. And e-mails/texts for those of you who know me personally. ๐Ÿ˜€
  5. I struggle with making lists. I really do.
  6. I’m not the most organized person. And one of those unfinished projects mentioned in fact 2 is cleaning my room. ๐Ÿ˜›
  7. I just finished completing my Thor costume for church tomorrow night. Woo-hoo!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

A Whole Year

Haaaap-py Birthday!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Today is this blog’s first birthday!

I was planning on saying something super eloquent but… well, instead, I’m just going to leave you with a hilarious clip from the movie Courageous. Enjoy. And laugh. Very, very funny.

The Sunshine Award

The Sunshine Award

Thanks so much to Katheline Hansen for nominating me for the Sunshine Award! Here are the rules:

  • Give 5 facts about yourself.
  • Answer the bloggerโ€™s five questions, and create your own.
  • Nominate five other bloggers.

Five Facts (Trying not to use ones I’ve used before)

  1. I’m a Holmie. Which is technically the same thing as a Sherlockian, but it sounds cooler.
  2. I’m learning how to drive… and trying to stay off curbs. Yes, I rode on the curb the other day… ๐Ÿ˜›
  3. I get character names for my stories off of headstones sometimes. (Yeah…)
  4. I LOVE taking pictures… once I start, I find it hard to stop. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  5. I don’t have a smart phone. (And you can tell I’m running out of facts. :D)

Katheline’s five questions:

  1. Beach or mountains?ย  – Mountains. But I love the beach too. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  2. What’s your favorite book? (Yes I’m evil like that. XD) –ย Argh, very evil! Non-fiction, the Bible. Fiction… The Chronicles of Narnia and Sherlock Holmes. That’s as close as I can get to one book. ๐Ÿ˜‰ There are plenty more books out there that I absolutely love, too.
  3. Which book character do you think you’re most like? –ย What? I haven’t thought about that concerning books. I have no idea. Good question. Wow… I’m stalling. I guess I’d be like Dr. Watson (female version, of course), maybe a little like Stevie from the Saddle Club series. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  4. What animal do you think you’re most like? – Heh heh, that’s hard. Which animal seems quiet, and then, BOOM, it’s not anymore? That would be me.
  5. What places would you most want to visit, or would you want to travel at all? – England. London. Definitely. Australia, or maybe a continental European country, would also be cool.

Five Questions for my Nominees

  1. You’ve got one day left of your life. What would you want to do?
  2. Pirates or ninjas, and why?
  3. If you were turned into one of the Avengers, which one would you be most like?
  4. What are your top three favorite Bible characters, and why?
  5. (I’m going to be evil, too) What is your favorite book?

My Nominees
