Blog Award Catch Up

Hey, loves! Over the last few weeks the number of nominations I have received for blogging awards has been piling up. As I was sitting down and sketching a general skeleton of a schedule for each month at the beginning of the year, I promised myself to do at least one blog award catch up/life update each month. Because sometimes it’s okay to sit down and just chat and not have every little thing planned out. So, that’s simply what I am going to be doing today. Get cozy, this is going to be a long one.

Three things about me- (school edition)

  1. I am apart of the school’s newspaper and I love it. Being able to write stories about fashion and events taking place at my own high school is so much fun and has really opened up my eyes to all sides of my school.
  2. This will be my second year helping out with my school’s drama department by doing makeup! I love being able to hang with a completely different side of my school.
  3. I am in my first AP class (AP Government) this year and I have learned an astonishing amount since the beginning of the class.

Here are the questions I was asked-

  1. If you had the choice of knowing when and how you would meet the love of your life, would you want to know? No, I don’t think I would want to know. I think that you must experience heartbreak to know what love is therefore I would not want to rush into nowing.
  2. What is your biggest flaw you have? I am seriously so anxious it’s not funny. I wish I could help myself from worrying about things that I have no control over.
  3. If you had to choose where you would spend your life, where would It be? I’m not sure. Out of college I would love to live in New York City for all the amazing fashion and opportunities; however, I would love to live somewhere with a warmer climate. I hope to live somewhere one day that screams home and is as comfortable to me as where I am now.
  4. Let’s pretend you’re in an abandoned island, what is 5 things you wish you would have with you? My sister for sure, water, a pair of sneakers, a camera, and something to for self-protection.
  5. How are you doing today? Today I am doing well. I am slowly but surely checking as many things as possible off of my to-do list for today.

Here are my questions to you-

  1. Where do you picture yourself in ten years?
  2. What was the first camera you ever had like?
  3. How has your dad impacted your life?
  4. What is your favorite TV show to binge watch? YouTuber?
  5. When do you feel most productive?

  1. I was on the newspaper staff in high school too. I was actually the business manager & sold advertising. It was hard because what companies takes kids seriously about that? I was on the yearbook staff too. That was a lot of fun. We did it all old school because it was the late 80s/early 90s. There was no internet yet!

      1. When I first started college I was a journalism major & was on the student newspaper there too. But things I was assigned to cover conflicted with other classes & my job so I quit after a semester. But I took a class in mass media which was really cool. It was basically the history of tv, radio & print media. But then computers were becoming popular and I switched my major to computer science.
