This was so, so sweet and I am so thankful to Swinging on a Star for nominating me! You should all check her out. She’s fun and kind and she’s definitely worth the read. The Versatile Blogger Award has been circulating for a while and while I can’t quite place its origins the way it works is this: 1) you thank the blogger who nominated you, 2) you list seven things about yourself, and 3) you nominate fifteen bloggers who will then keep the tag going. So let’s get started!
1. I’ve actually been published!
I’ve been a writer for a long time and while it took me quite a while to get comfortable sending my writing out, I did eventually begin. I’ve had two short stories published on Gadfly Online and Literary Orphans.
2. Before I was huge K-Pop fan, I was a Directioner.
It was a bleak time but yes. I loved One Direction. I actually attended one of their concerts back in 2014, I believe, but I fell out of love with them not long after because I was no longer as invested in the music. Also the fans were…crazy.
3. I’m a HUGE reader.
When I was in high school, I used to read all day everyday. My favorite genre at the time was Young Adult so I’ve kind of carried that love with me into adulthood. If you were to take at my room, you would think it was a library with a bed in it–which is exactly how I like it.
4. I’ve traveled a lot.
My mom loves to travel and we’re very close, so I’ve been everywhere with her. Some of the places I’ve been:
- Puerto Rico
5. For someone as introverted as me, I’ve actually done a fair amount of public speaking.
When I was middle school, we had a “graduation” before we started high school and they let us audition our speeches to see who would speak. My friend and I decided it would be fun and we ended up doing it. In high school, the same thing happened. I auditioned with a speech because I thought it would be fun and I ended up speaking before my entire high school class and their friends and family.
6. My favorite show ever is Brooklyn 99.
If you’ve never seen Brooklyn 99, go to Hulu and binge it right now. It’s hilarious and clever without being offensive. I love it and the cast is so diverse and talented that it’s genuinely refreshing.
7. I’m a big baker.
In my office, I’m known as the baker. I always have cookies or brownies and for everyone’s birthdays, I’m in charge of the cake. It’s because I have a huge sweet tooth but a very finicky palate so I prefer making things myself from scratch and getting it right.
If you’ve made it this far, thank you! I know quite a few of you have already done this tag, so I’ll try to tag those I haven’t seen thus far. This is not quite fifteen but my internet is acting up and I just wanted to make sure I actually managed to post this.
