Infinity Dreams Tag//Random things about me

Grace from Totally Graced (yeah, go check her blog out!) was so kind and tagged me for the Infinity Dreams Tag. She was cruel and unusual with her questions, but being the kind soul I am, I will persevere. Here we go!

Discribe your best friend in one sentence
  - A stunningly beautiful girl who is really me in a different body.

How do you like to wear your hair? 
  - I have four hairstyles: up, down, ballet bun, and homeless. My hair is so weird (my sisters say it's hormonal because  you can never predict what it's going to do. It might be really curly. Maybe wavy, maybe fluffy and straight(ish). You never know) Usually I pull in back because it takes less work and it's going to get sweaty in a bun later.

What song lyrics describe your life? 
  - Gosh, this is a hard one! So many good songs I've been listening to. I don't know if this counts, but I really have been loving Good Good Father by Chris Tomlin. I'm not a big fan of Chris Tomlin, and his songs are soooooo overplayed, but this one... I don't know. I've just been meditating on it.

Worst book you've ever read? 
  - Oh without a doubt the "Trojan War". It. Was. Terrible.

How do you want to spend the rest of your life? 
  - (Grace, how am I going to narrow this down?????)  I want to spend my life loving people deeply and personally. Loving Jesus with everything I am. I want to stay focused on what is true. I want to spend the rest of my life using every gift, every idea, every passion for the God of the universe. I want to be vulnerable in my failure and hurt. I want to spend the rest of my life dancing, raising children, and pushing myself past every limit. I want to look back and know that I have been used to my fullest extent.

Best class you have ever taken?
  - I'm liking chemistry even though it is totally trying to kick my butt. I liked the human anatomy part of biology. I like my English class. I don't think I can really pick one!

Who has most impacted your life? 
  -Oh goodness, another hard one. Really, all my dance teachers have impacted me so greatly. They have pushed me and guided me. They have taught me big and important life lessons, and helped me discover joy in my body. My closest friends have impacted me deeply. They have walked me through dark times, and been listening ears with wise advice. My older sister has been my partner in crime (well, really the brain of the crime...) she has impacted me in more ways then I could ever imagine. But if I really had to pick, it would be my parents. They have taught me to learn, to persevere, to be the first to apologize. They have taught me about being a good friend, a good student, and a leader. Mainly, they have impacted me by example.
Whew. That got long and rambley. (and yes, I know you just skimmed that)

What inspired you to start a blog? 
   - Beginning in middle school, I have loved reading blogs. I like the format, the different writing styles, the content. When Jayna moved, I begged her to blog with me. And that is how Letters to Jayna was born.

Can you cook? What is your favorite recipe? 
   - I pretend I can cook. I can follow recipes, but not cook cook. And oh gosh, I have a lot. I just made white chicken chili which was really good. I also have good recipes for homemade granola bars and french silk chocolate pie.

If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
   - This is so cliche, but I want to live in New York at some point. Not forever, but for a while:) I mainly want to travel a lot!

What is your favorite movie quote? 
   - I have lots, but this was the first that came to mind

I now nominate:
Joanny @ Joanny White
Here are your questions:
  1. White, milk, or dark chocolate? (and there is definitely a wrong answer here)
  2. What are you reading right now?
  3. How do you de-stress? 
  4. What is something small that brings you joy?
  5. What drew you to blogging? 
  6. What are you favorite kinds of blog posts to read? 
  7. Do you still shave your legs in the winter? (I'm actually really cirrus about this one...)
  8. What song(s) are you currently obsessed with? 
  9. What is a quote that perfectly describes your life at the moment?
  10. What is one thing that makes you you? 
Have fun!

Discover new blogs- Liebster Award

Hello friends! Yesterday I was nominated for the Liebster award by Mikayla from The Bubblegum Ballerina.  The purpose if this is too meet and discover new blogs, and I am so excited to participate. Read on to hear the answers to the questions Mikayla asked me! 

1. What is the funniest thing you've done this week? 
      This wasn't as much funny as humiliating at the time, but looking back, it was kind of funny. My mom and I were out running errands, and one of our stops was Target. We each found what we needed, and met up at the checkout. My mom, upon realizing she had forgotten to grab something, left me with our cart in line. The only checkout line open. I started checking out our stuff, and pretty soon I was left with two things in the card. Two packages of pads. Lots of pads. I hand the packages to the 20-something checkout guy, (without making eye contact) and he proceeds to plop them right on top of the cart. And my mom is still not back. The line has grown. I'm standing, waiting awkwardly while everyone in line is staring at the pads in my cart. I just wanted to scream, "I HAVE SISTERS, okay?!?!?!?" It was terrible.  

2. Are you on summer break? If so, what are you doing with your free time? 
     I am on summer break for the most part; twiddling my thumbs. No, I have been heavily rehearsing for a show that just ended this weekend. I've also been babysitting :) 

3. What is ONE of your favorite songs? 
     Hmmm, I am definitely a music junkie. However, I'm a bit obsessed with the music from The Lion King right now, and I especially love They Live in You.

4. If you could do anything right now, what would it be? 
     Buy a plane ticket to Hawaii, and vist my friend Jayna. Who doesn't want to go to Hawaii?
5. What book(s) are you reading right now? 
      This is kind of embarrassing, but I recently picked up some of the Miss. Piggle Wiggle books. These where childhood favorites of mine, and I am loving rereading them! I've also been trying to make a habit of picking up my Bible regularly, which is serving me well. :)
6. What's your favorite part of blogging? 
      Hmm, I definitely enjoy most aspects of blogging, so it is hard to pick a favorite! However, by far the most rewarding thing is receiving comments from readers who were able to relate to my content, and be encouraged. It makes my day, every time!
7. What are some of your blogging goals? 
      Well, my number one goal is to write helpful content that reminds readers that they are not alone! I try to be honest and vulnerable in my writing, because as young women, it is easy to isolate ourselves and feel like we are the only ones.  
      Selfishly, I would love to grow my readers, but if I can touch one heart through this blog, then it is worth it.
8. What's the hardest part about blogging for you? 
      Staying motivated to post frequently. I sometimes wonder if anyone even reads this silly, little blog, and I can certainly make a number of excuses to not post.
9. What is your favorite word?
      As far as sounds, and the English language goes, definitely the word prologue. But love is another important word to me. I write it on little notes to myself everywhere.
10. Could you share a miscellaneous fact about yourself for us?
       I love to play violin and piano. Not at the same time. Is that lame?
11. Sweet or unsweetened tea?
        This is a trick question! Sweet tea is too sweat, but I can't stand unsweetened tea unless the tea itself is good tea. So does unsweetened tea, with some raw sugar count?

I would like to nominate the following bloggers:

   Elizabeth at Whimsical Thoughts 
Jayna at Letters to Elissa

I will be sending questions your way!

Thank you so much for stopping by my piece of the internet! Please take a moment to follow me though Blogger, Google+, and Bloglovin. I look forward to hearing from you!
