i’ve been nominated for the liebster award, which is meant to help people discover new blogs in the community.
here are the rules 🙂
- thank the blogger who nominated you
- answer the questions you were given
- nominate blogs that deserve the award
- let the bloggers you nominated know
- make 11 questions for your nominees to answer
let’s get started 🙂
first of all, my friend jennifer nominated me for this award. we both started our blogs at the same time, and we’ve been friends for over three years now. although she lives in New Jersey, we still keep in touch, and support each other in everything… including blogging 🙂
second, i have to answer the 11 questions i have been given, so here they are 🙂
- what are some of your hobbies?
Well, as you all know, i’m a ballerina, and I plan on hopefully making it to the San Francisco Ballet. I’ll be auditioning for their school in late August, so hopefully i’ll do a little vlogging in order to bring you all around 🙂 On top of dancing, i really like to run. It’s kind of therapeutic for me sometimes, and it’s also great for me so I can cross train for dance. I also really like crafting, so i probably will be posting some DIYs for you to try. If you want a DIY post, leave me a comment below 🙂
2. what’s the best part about blogging?
Definitely seeing how creative others are, and connecting with other bloggers in the community. I’ve started blogging only about a month or two ago, so i’m still pretty mediocre compared to other people out there. I still have to find my footing underneath me to have a focus point, so I really love seeing other people and their ideas come to life. Seeing people’s kind comments, and jumping out of my chair when I have a new follower is also a great part of the process 🙂
3. best part of summer so far?
That’s a really tough question for me to answer!!! There’s been so much going on with my family and I, that there’s really no way I can have one answer. One of the best things, though, is meeting my newborn brother, Dylan.
4. biggest worry at the moment?
I have a ton of worries right now, but my biggest one is high school, and not being successful there. I’m also worrying a lot about ballet, and whether or not i’ll be able to improve for my hopeful career in the future. However, i’ve learned that worrying about the future distracts me from the now. I need to take one step at a time. Worrying never gets anyone anywhere….
5. if you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?
Wow… You all have no idea how many times i’ve thought about this question. My answer isn’t very unique, but I would love to be able to fly. I’m very outgoing and I really like taking risks, so probably the freedom of flying is what gets me.
6. favorite film?
I love the ballet documentary First Position!! (i’ve watched it about 25 times) It was directed by Bess Kargman, and she highlights 7 dancers as they prepare for the Youth American Grand Prix. the ballet competition I was a part of last year. One of the dancers, Miko Fogarty, actually trained at my old studio here in California, Ayako School of Ballet. All 7 dancers have been very successful right now. I’m sure it’ll be very interesting to you all if you watch it, whether you dance or not. (It’s on Netflix!!)
7. why did you start your blog?
I started blogging just for fun, but now it’s so much more than that. I love the community of people, I love seeing their ideas, and also connecting with other writers. I’m really really aiming for success from this point on. Like i’ve said before… it makes me so, so happy when I see that people like my ideas, and my little posts I write. I’m pretty mediocre right now, but with time I think I can find my focus point and really write things that are meaningful and get people excited.
8. who’s inspired you the most?
Definitely my parents.
My parents have done so much for me. Everything that they do is so that my siblings and I follow our dreams. They are always encouraging, and willing to help me excel at everything. My dad and mom, most of all, are the hardest workers that I know. No matter what they love me unconditionally, and I will always be grateful
9. if you were stranded on a deserted island, what three things would you bring?
Probably a good book to read, food, and water… I’ve always thought about this question, and my answer always changes!
10. favorite food?
Probably a cobb salad and a side of french fries 🙂
11. your favorite books?
there’s no way I can decide…. there’s so many amazing books out there. I’m in the middle of reading the Homelander series, which I will review when i’m finished. I’ve also read fast food nation which I really enjoyed, and the Unwind series. If you want a good recommendation, let me know!!! I literally have a book recommendation for any genre 🙂 I’m probably the biggest book nerd there is 🙂
Next, here are the blogs that I will be nominating, There’s so many blogs that really deserve this, but I can only choose a few. The ones I nominate, I feel like don’t really get the acknowledgment for the work they put in, so here they are:
and here are the questions I would like you all to answer 🙂

so, that concludes my post!! Again, thank you to all of you who follow me, and have been supporting me. I have big dreams for where I want this blog to go. I blog, because I love to write. Writing has always been a huge part of my life. Ever since I remember I have been writing little stories and reading, and now, finally, I have a way to use those ideas to inspire others. Sure, it’s fantastic when I have a new follower. (seri
