The Amazing You Tag – Answering My Own Tag Questions

Hullo, everyone! You might remember that I started a tag for my two year blogiversary! I was tagged by both the wonderful writinganyone and the amazing erinkenobi2893. Thanks so much, you two!

AmazingYouTag

The Rules

  • This tag has ten questions, which you never have to change.
  • Thank the person who tagged you
  • Include the picture in your post and tag it with “amazingyou”
  • Answer the questions
  • Tag as many people as you want

The Questions

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

It depends on how insane I am at the moment. If I am perfect sane, probably animals or natives (possibly cannibals) and I probably wouldn’t try to find out. If I’m starting to go a little crazy (from being stuck on a deserted island alone), I’d probably expect terrorists wanting me to build a missile (heehee!) or a secret government lab or a portal to Narnia/Middle Earth/Asgard…

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

SO MANY. I mean, I’m writing a whole book about superheroes! I love the idea of teleportation. That would be super helpful for getting places. But then again, super speed would be really awesome, too. Imagine being able to type super fast… I’d probably go with super speed.

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

Probably one of Bach’s inventions played really slow on the piano, because Bach is awesome and he’s my favorite composer to play. Or one of tobyMac’s songs, like my absolute favorite, Till The Day I Die.

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

Black, definitely. Any other color would get really annoying after a while. Plus, if I wear black, people might think I’m creepy and leave me alone. And it’ll make me look like a spy… so many pros, so few cons. 😉

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

Build a time travel machine? Create my own JARVIS? Go to Russia? Again, SO MANY THINGS! Probably make JARVIS and then make him into The Vision.

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

It would be about how much God loves everyone, and what he did for us. And basically, LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR. And abortion is murder. And a lot of other things. Hush, I could definitely fit everything into five minutes…

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

Definitely J.R.R. Tolkien, because LotR and writing and awesomeness, and probably C.S. Lewis, too, for the same reasons (with Narnia instead of LotR, though).  And… Joss Whedon? Because after the crazy stressfulness of Avengers: Age of Ultron he decided HE’S NOT GOING TO DIRECT INFINITY WAR NOOOOO!!!! So I would definitely offer to help him with that – he can do whatever he wants and I’ll do the rest…

8. What is your favorite smell, and why?

I love cinnamon, but I also really, really like the smell of cold. Real, outdoors, winter-is-coming cold. Mmmm, happiness.

9. Share one of your favorite quotes.

This is one of my favorites.

“All we must do is decide what to do with the time that is given us.”

-Gandalf, in The Lord of the Rings

Because Gandalf is awesome.

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

  1. I have one sister.
  2. I love economics.
  3. I’ve watched five Marvel movies.

Well, I tagged a bunch of people when I started the tag… But since I want my tag to keep going, I’ll go ahead and tag a few people! 😉

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 blogger’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… 😛
  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. 😉
  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?  – Mountains. But I love the beach too. 😉
  2. What’s your favorite book? (Yes I’m evil like that. XD) – 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. 😉 There are plenty more books out there that I absolutely love, too.
  3. Which book character do you think you’re most like? – 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. 😉
  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.

Those Stories

What types of Scripture do you learn best from? Proverbs? Psalms? Paul’s Letters? The stories? I definitely learn best from the stories.

For me, stories are just easier to interpret. I’ve spent so much time in literature classes learning about finding themes in stories and analyzing them that it comes natural to me now. Being a writer is probably part of it, too.

And there are so many stories in the Bible, too. Not just the ones everyone knows, like Adam and Eve, or Daniel and the Lion’s Den, or Noah’s Ark, or David and Goliath. Stories like Jephthah’s (horrible) Vow and Obadiah (Elijah’s sidekick). Jephthah made a vow that turned out so horribly that the result could have made a movie about him rated R (possibly) and Obadiah saved a hundred of God’s prophets. Some of these little known stories are really cool, and we can learn a lot from them. (Like not to make vows that you might not want to keep, Jephthah!!!!!!!!! Seriously, as my youth leader said, what did he think was going to come out of the door first, his pet goat??????)

So, enough ranting. I have no idea where I was going with this. So…

Which category teaches you the most, or is the easiest for you to learn from?

And…

What’s your favorite (or most remembered) little-known Bible story?

Call to Him

“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”

Jeremiah 33:3

No matter what, God will always answer your prayers. Most likely it won’t be in an audible voice, but He will answer.
