Who Knew This Was a Trilogy? || liebster award 3.0

Hello my friends! Another Friday another day I open my doors and invite you in for a chat.

Today is a little interview from Chalice. aka the Liebster Award.

This thing spreads like wildfires, as it was written in the rules:


  • Thank the person who nominated you and display the award. Thank you Chalice! πŸ˜€
  • Answer the questions provided.
  • Provide 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 5-11 other bloggers and make sure they know! Wow, last time I got tagged, it didn’t give you wiggle room on the number. Impressive…
  • Ask your nominees 11 questions

Okay! Into the questionnaire.

Question 1: What is something you feel like isn’t talked about enough?

Oh hmm. That is hard, because sometimes I feel like things are talked about too much. So maybe the importance of rest and prayer and meditation and making time for doing nothing every once and a while.

Question 2: What’s a song that is really special to you right now?

Oooh there are so many.

How about Yesterday by The Beatles? And Blackbird, which my little brother actually learned on the guitar.

I’ve basically just been listening to 60’s and 50’s lately.

Question 3: If you could go back and relive any memory, just to experience it again, what memory would you go back to?

Oh dear. My siblings and I were talking about this the other day.

I was a terrible kid.

Like… terrible.

I’m not sure I would want to relive many days were I made life miserable…

Oh but wait. A day on my family’s four-week road trip in our 15 passenger van for sure from five years ago. That trip was absolutely amazing. Totally one of those. Maybe the day at the Grand Canyon?

Question 4: Would you rather have dreads or be bald? (Just asking the important questions.)


Chalice why do you do this to me??

Being bald might be able to pull of elegantly. But then… I’d be bald.

And I’m quite fond of having hair. So dreadlocks.

Question 5: If you could speak any language fluently, which language would you choose?

Probably American Sign Language, though I guess that isn’t a language you speak. So either Irish (because I love it) or German (because if you know that and English you can get around Europe easily) or Russian (because apparently its known for taking forever to learn.)

Question 6: What’s something you’ve always wanted to do, but haven’t done yet?

Buy an old downtown bookshop and reorganize, add a coffee/tea/pastry shop, run the thing, and host poetry readings

Question 7: Why haven’t you done the thing mentioned above? I mean, come on. You’ve always wanted to do it…


For starters, I don’t have enough to invest in such a project.

And can teenagers even own commercial property?

Question 8: What are three things off the top of your head that make you happy?

  • The way I wake up some mornings and find bagels and know my mom buys bagels because she knows I love them (…I say as I eat one)
  • The way my little sister likes to play games with me and pretends she’s older
  • My dad playing guitar

Question 9: What are three things off the top of your head that make you sad?

  • The ending of All the Light We Can Not See, which I just finished reading and am still trying to process and decide whether I liked it or not. πŸ˜›
  • Just about any of my favorite books. And favorite movies for that matter.
  • The way some people are treated because they are different.

Question 10: How do you want to change the world in your lifetime?


That’s a deep one.

I’d say that I wouldn’t trust myself to impacting the world (haha it’s true) but maybe hope for at least just being a sincere person who really cares about people. And when I die people say something like “She was always there to cry with and laugh with and joke with and ponder with. She was a really good friend and she loved me.”

Something like that. πŸ˜›

Question 11: Do you wear socks in bed?

Nope, for some reason I just can’t. If I ever try I end up tossing and turning and never end up falling asleep. Anyone want to explain the whole sock-to-bed thing?? Because I really don’t get it.

Now the round of facts…

  1. I have a little brother who can’t think of any random facts about me
  2. I like to count out of order and can do it without having to think about it because of a dance I went to once. (1 3 5 7 2 4 …can you guess the next number in the pattern? πŸ˜‰ )
  3. I love wearing fuzzy Christmas socks and oversized sweaters
  4. I can wiggle my ears. (It took forever for me to find the right muscle, but hard word pays off, right?)
  5. There is a ground hog named Arnold that lives under my family’s back deck.
  6. I keep accidentally spelling “Liebester” instead of “Liebster”
  7. I just started reading a collection of C.S. Lewis’s poetry and am enjoying it immensely.
  8. I have three elephants in my room, but I don’t address them.
  9. I am working on crocheting my third blanket.
  10. I am also “working” on many other projects. (Some day I’ll finish them…)
  11. I use to get the number “eleven” and “twelve” mixed up.

My questions:

  1. When was the last time you cried while reading a book/watching a movie? What was it?
  2. If you could decide what subjects you study in school (real subjects mind you) what would you pick?
  3. How do you brainstorm blogging ideas?
  4. What time in the year is the earliest you think Christmas music should be allowed to be played?
  5. What is a Christmas tradition that you family has?
  6. What is your favorite Thanksgiving dish? Do you ever make it?
  7. How do you like to study for a test?
  8. If you had to perform at least something on stage, what would it be? A comedy act? A song? A dance? A speech? etc.
  9. What are nine things that you have in your room?
  10. Would you rather live in a castle or a tree house?
  11. What is your opinion on whether a hotdog is a sandwich?

Aaaaand I tag….

Those who have only done the Liebster Award 2 times! Why not round it off with a neat bow as a satisfying trilogy?

And with that, I would like to announce me retirement from the Liebster Award, because three is the magic number. And I like trilogies.

Until next week comes

    1. Haha thanks! I thought there might be at least one person who was in the same boat. 😜
      I know, but isn’t it weird?! I just can’t. I don’t know why but it just messes with my mind and I just can’t. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  1. Don’t feel bad, Evelyn, I was a jerk when I was little too. πŸ™ƒ
    Oh dear! Evelyn…bald?! Or with dreads? I’m sorry…I just can’t help laughing at the thought. 🀣
    Aww, your mom is so sweet!
    ARNOLD!! I’d almost forgotten about the poor fellow! I hope he is well? πŸ˜„
    Absolutely loved this post! ❀️❀️❀️

    1. I know. It would be dreadful either way. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Leave it to the Liebster Award for bringing out the worst in people. πŸ˜‰
      And yes! My mom is pretty awesome. 😍 Not that I’m biased at all….
      I see Arnold every day. (Such a gentlemanly and precise fellow, as he is.) He is doing quite well and I shall pass along your inquiries. 😜
      Awww thanks friend! πŸ˜„πŸ§‘

  2. When you get your bookshop, I will come visit. How can I resist food and books in the same place? πŸ˜‰
    Ugh, I read All the Light We Cannot See several years ago and I was kind of traumatized by the ending. I am still glad that I read it, but it’s a hard book to swallow.
    I really liked your answer to the one about changing the world. I want to be that kind of person too.
    I have a collection of C.S. Lewis poetry! My sister got it for me. I haven’t started reading it yet.
    Three elephants in your room that you don’t address! That made me laugh. πŸ™‚
    Great post!

    1. I know right?? I feel like if I started it, I would never be able to leave it. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜œ
      Yes, that is the perfect way to say it. Hard to swallow for sure. And the ending. I was so shocked. I sat there staring numbly at that one chapter for a couple minutes straight. πŸ˜›
      Aw, thanks. I also think of certain people in my life who fit the description and they are always the best people. Most loving and encouraging and fun and spunky all at the same time. ❀️❀️ I can only pray and strive to be the same. πŸ™ƒ
      Oh neat! I hope you enjoy it. It’s an interesting poetry style. Very Lewis-like. And a lot of his poems remind me of his essays or books. It’s really cool!
      Hahahaha thanks. πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

  3. Okay so I’m p.r.e.t.t.y sure I’ve done this one twice but I haven’t looked to see for sure… πŸ˜† Either way I’m behind on tags so I’ll give you the short answer here!
    1. Ok, I rewatched Saints and Soldiers: Airborne Creed like two days ago and had forgotten how much it makes me cry…
    2. Anatomy, English, and history. No math. Even if it’s kinda vital to a medical career.
    3. I don’t really?? I just write down ideas as they come and try to stay ahead of my game.
    4. There is no such rule. It should start in earnest right about now.
    5. Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes!! And driving to look at lights multiple times a week.
    6. My mom makes stuffed mushrooms every single Thanksgiving. I don’t like cooking, but it’s not Thanksgiving without stuffed mushrooms!
    7. Hehehe…I skim back through my book right beforehand? It’s homeschooling. I don’t cheat, but it’s not a stressful thing.
    8. A country song, all the way. πŸ’•
    9. That many stuffed animals. 🀣
    10. Tree house, Swiss Family Robinson style.
    11. It’s just a weird one!

    1. Hey no problem. I have way too many tags I have not done. πŸ˜›
      Hahaha you should get in a choir. Mine started singing Christmas songs in August. πŸ˜‚
      Wow stuffed mushrooms sound amazing. (And now I’m hungry…)
      Nine stuffed animals?? 😱 Girl that is amazing!
      Swiss Family Robinson! Yes! I love that movie.
      All great answers! πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

  4. A bookstore/coffee shops with poetry readings–yes, girl!

    That’s me in a nutshell: I was a bad child. I am a perfect example of sanctification doing its thing on a covenant child. lol

    Actually, I would rather have dreads than be bald. Gross, but true. I have long hair and I’m sort of attached to it. Cutting it all off seems like losing a body part or something. (I’m totally not vain about it *cough cough*) To put it simply, my hair makes my face look much more aesthetically pleasing and I don’t know how I would do walking around looking like a peeled potato. XD

    1. Yes! You can come work at it if you want. I’ll need lots of company. πŸ™ƒ

      Hahaha that is a great way to put it. *shudders* the fairs we use to go to as a kid. They literally all ended with my dad having to spend the last couple hours watching me as I would sit and pout in the car while everyone else rode the rides and watched the shows.
      Yeah. I was a terrible kid. πŸ˜› And now any time someone brings up fairs I can’t help but think of all my failures. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      A peeled potato. Oh my goodness that is the perfect description. 🀣🀣
      Yes, I am quite fond of my long hair. And honestly if I ever lost it…. *shudders*
      Enough said. πŸ˜›

  5. Aw, I loved reading this!! Particularly when you listed your three favorite things ’cause I love bagels (and they don’t have them down south where I live now – real ones, anyway – biggest. disappointment. ever.), and little siblings are so great, and my dad used to play guitar when I was little and I always get super nostalgic about it! So quite relatable πŸ™‚ :).

    1. Aww, they don’t? That is a shame. Hmm.
      Yes, little siblings and my father playing guitar when I was little. <33
      Now when he pulls it out and plays his favorite song I always end up sniffling in the back of the room. XD
