Liebster Blog Award (Edited)

[Edit]: Found a few more people who very much deserve this award as well as much much more recognition for their writing and storytelling ๐Ÿ™‚

Woke up to a nice sunrise and a fellow friendly blogger–James Cudney–writing an extremely helpful post. It was great, but today’s the last day of me visiting the family, so it’s time to go back “home.” We tried making the most of the time we had, going to lunch and shopping, but as the hours ticked by like minutes, it was soon time to say goodbye. I fucking hate goodbyes. I’m the kind of guy that’ll leave without a word. Weird, I know.

BUT…then this happened. As I sit here in the airport like a lost puppy, yet another friendly blogger came along to lighten everything with this Liebster Award. So, a big thanks toย Kaitmollerย for doing this. Kait’s blog is a bit (if not exactly) like a journal. She’s an interesting character. And she has to be. Who wants to read a boring person’s journal? She posts about relatable personal experiences, self-reflections, and poetry. She’s a great writer and very creative. AND, she’s pretty cute. That’s just a plus. I’ve told her that before but I’ll say it again. ๐Ÿ™‚

Questions from Kait:

  • What is one thing most people do not know about you?
    Ha–I post a lot of personal stuff on my blog, and, in a way, my followers know more about me than people in my life. But I guess something not a lot of people know is the notes sent by the fictional serial killer in my book are based off of notes sent to the police by real-life serial killer BTK.
  • What is one piece of work or blog post you are extremely proud? Why?
    I’m pretty proud of my self-published book and my blog postย My best friend, my Notepad, just because I think that post captured a few of my bestfriends: isolation, lacking trust, and my Notepad ๐Ÿ™‚
  • What is your favorite film?
    What a difficult question. lol. Right now, I’m quite in love with the horror movie, IT.
  • How many years have you been writing? What year was most inspiring? Why?
    I guess me and my friends started writing songs/poetry when we were 10-ish. My most important year was last year, 2016, because that’s when I realized beyond everything that writing is what I’m going to do for the rest of my life, regardless of fame or wealth.
  • What is your dream career? What is the first step in achieving that dream?
    Being a writer–surprise! I think the first step was making this blog. I’ve met a ton of extremely helpful, kind, and inspiring people through this blog.
  • Who or what inspires you the most?
    Mm…honestly, negative life experiences. I don’t know. There’s something incredibly inspiring in the “tough times.”
  • If you could write a 20 page paper on any OBJECT what would it be?
    Kait, that’s a lot. But if you insist…. I’d choose to write about a photo of my family.
  • Do you prefer coffee or tea?
    I like both, but definitely prefer coffee. Specifically, an espresso. Yum.
  • What is your favorite photo that youโ€™ve taken? Post it!
    I don’t really have one, I don’t think…? I like my pictures of sunsets/sunrises.

    I really like this one ๐Ÿ™‚
  • How do you spend your free time when youโ€™re not writing?
    This question made me chuckle. I guess it’s just the way I looked back at myself. I like solitary walks through the woods (weird, I know), or traveling. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you for the interesting, thought-provoking questions, Kait.
