Liebster Award Tag + 11 Questions Answered

Hey look! The wonderful Hannah Krynicki tagged me in her post for the Liebster Award. She’s an awesome person and writer with brilliant ideas and thoughts, so please, check out her blog and give her a follow. Thanks Hannah!

So, tags have rules. I need to answer 11 questions, list 11 random facts, tag 11 people and give them 11 questions to answer. You’d think the person who created this tag really liked the number 11. Now, on to those questions from Hannah.

Liebster Award Tag + 11 Questions Answered - Tea with Tumnus.jpg

what’s your favorite thing about blogging?

I like posting stuf that I like writing about (book/movie reviews, writing tips, music, fandoms, theories, etc.) and I love hearing opinions from other people who read them. I also like connecting and bouncing ideas off of fellow bloggers and writers. Blogging has been a very rewarding and inspiring journey in the two years I’ve been doing it.

what’s your personality type? (or, if you don’t know, your Hogwarts House)

How about both?

I’m pretty sure I’m an INFP. At least, in my research, it’s the type that fits me the most. Fun fact: I just recently took FIVE different MBTI personality tests, all on different sites, all asking similar questions. I ended up with 5 different personality types: ISTJ, ISFJ, INFP, INTP, and ISTP. I was flabbergasted. At least the introvert part is clear.

I do know for sure that I’m a Hufflepuff. And a proud one at that.

who are three of your real-life heroes? (they can be living or dead, but they have to be real.)

It’s so much easier to think of fictional characters rather than real life people. My real-life heros are terribly mundane, but they have real superhero elements in them.

  •  My mom. I know I’m pretty biased when I say this, but she’s the best mom around. She’s an amazing role model and has taught me so much. If there’s anyone I know who I’d see as a hero, it would be her.
  • Hannah Heath. Yeah, the Hannah Heath, author of Skies of Dripping Gold, blogger, writer, most of you know her. She’s been an exceptional example of a strong heart with perseverence in dealing with pain that comes from Lyme disease. And she’s an all around sweet, genuine, inspiring, and motivational person.
  • I’ll have to say Tyler Joseph. He’s a very inspring person, a great example of not giving up and seeing meaning and beauty through pain. He’s not afraid of being real and expressing the true hardships of life in his songs that we often like to sugarcoat. He also doesn’t let the world sway his faith; in fact, his faith is very clear in most of the songs he writes.

(No, did you really think you could get away with reading another post that didn’t even mention Twenty One Pilots?)

axe or sword, or some other weapon?


Oo, now we’re getting down to some writer favorites. I like swords, all different kinds. My favorite is the flambard (Norse for flame sword). I know I’ve mentioned it on my blog before. One of my characters wields it. Yes, she has fire powers.

I also really like Shiruken. They’re tiny, circular Japanese throwing knives. It would be amazing to learn how to use them, just for fun and for writing reference.


describe yourself with a gif


just my imagination

if you could play any fictional character in a movie adaptation of your favorite book, whom would you be?

Ooh, nice question. Either Clarisse McClellan from Fahrenheit 451, Liesel from The Book Thief, or Turtle from The Westing Game.

hot tea or sweet tea?

Hot tea. Sweetened with honey and a splash of 1/2 & 1/2 (just so I can see the pretty cream clouds, I don’t care what the cream tastes like).

what is your favorite song/band?

My favorite song currently is “Trees” by Twenty One Pilots. If you want to know why it’s my favorite song, click here. If you’d like to know why Twenty One Pilots is my favorite band, click here. You’re welcome.

what’s a skill you’d really like to learn if you had the time?

There are way too many skills I wish I could have! If I could only pick one, it would be playing violin. Like an advanced violin player. That would be amazing (and it’s a portable instrument, whereas the piano … well.)

what’s your favorite nonfiction book?

World War II: The Rest Of The Story And How It Affects You Today by Richard J. Maybury. I love history, espectially controversy and the world wars, so this book was definitely my cup of tea. In fact, I wrote a post series about it.

in one sentence, how would you explain the meaning of life?

Why not just one word? 42.

Oh, how would explain it from my own perspective? Now that’s harder. The meaning of life is to glorify God and do His will and show others His love. Being a Christian with a certain worldview, this was a question easy to answer, but if you’re not religious … well, let’s just say I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Eleven Random Facts

  • I’m taking a Public Speaking class this fall semester. I thought it would be good for me.

  • I went to Long Beach Comic Con last weekend and now I want to join the 501st Legion.
  • I’ve never published anything, unless posting on Wattpad counts. This year, however, I hope to indie publish my novel Fiction’s Lie on Amazon.
  • My siblings, friends, and I are finishing up a music video of “Stressed Out” by Yøu Knøw Whø.
  • My favorite superhero is Spiderman/Peter Parker.
  • One of my classmates is an elderly African American man who once played basketball with Lebron James before he got famous.
  • My style ranges from black torn jeans to La La Land style dresses. As do my music tastes.
  • The next color I plan on dying my hair is a gray-ish icy blue. I can’t wait.
  • One of these days I will be a professional aesthetic fandom photographer.
  • I believe in the possible existance of intelligent aliens and life supporting planets in our universe.

  1. Awesome answers (and questions 😏)! I love Maybury’s books, so I’ll have to read the WWII one next. And violin is of course awesome and Sherlock-ish.

  2. Thank you very much, Susannah! Usually I don’t do tags and the like these days, but I will most likely make an exception since I know there’s personal appreciation involved. 🙂

    42!!!!!!! 42 is the answer to everything, completely, irrevocably, and it doesn’t discount religious/spiritual viewpoints, either. Honestly, as a former student of many different religions and history, 42 is the only answer I’ve found that makes sense all the way around!

    • Sure!! I look forward to reading your response to the tag if you post it! (No pressure!) And I may lose my nerd card here, but I thought 42 was just a random number…how does it make the most sense out of all the answers to the meaning of life?


      • 42 was selected randomly (I’m not sure if he flipped a coin or what), but in my opinion, it makes more sense than so many religious or philosophical ideas on the Ultimate Question. I have to say, the first time I read it, having studied all the major religions from the Middle Ages to the present day, I went, “AHHH, yes, that’s it!!!!” The randomness is perfect, because therefore you can make what you want of it, and there are no hard and fast rules about personal responsibilities or destiny in that single number, which also means you don’t feel like a failure before you’ve even started. 😛

        (Also, numerology was very important to the ancient Jews, and 7 is supposed to be the number of completion, and 7 x 6 is 42. Booya, I have uncovered the secrets of the universe.)


      • Ahh I thought the explanation was something like that. I guess 7 makes it a pretty interesting number. Adams probably picked a random number because even though it’s random, it makes more sense than all the detailed complicated theories and worldviews people come up with. It’s probably his way of just making fun of it all now that I actually think about it lol.


      • It’s definitely a tongue-in-cheek moment, and I don’t doubt for a moment that Adams didn’t *actually* have a real philosophy or thematic concept behind selecting 42. But I know that he probably thought — for the sake of the story as well as a writer — that choosing a very simple answer (at least on the surface) worked better than most of the rules-and-regulations styles of world faiths. 🙂

  3. First off: That Hitchhiker’s gif is hilarious. I may or may not have watched it about 15 times. 🙂

    Secondly: I am so pleased to be on the same list with your Mom and Tyler Joseph. Two people I really admire….Your Mom more so than Tyler, since I’ve never met him. 🙂 Anyway, thank you so much for the vote of confidence. It made my week. 🙂

    Thirdly: I know what cafe you’re talking about and cracked up when you mentioned the garage door! Every time I go there I discover something new like that.

    Anyway, awesome post! 42, my friend. 42.


  4. I’ve always wanted to play the violin, and I tried to learn it, but it takes a lot of effort to learn it. It’s still a beautiful instrument though.
    I loved reading this!

  5. This is actually a funny coincidence! I just had to nominate a bunch of people for the Liebster Award too and I wanted to choose you, but then I saw this and I didn’t:) (I thought doing it twice in a row would be a bit overkill perhaps:P)
    I’m also so with you on the clothes thing. I genuinely love both dresses, pants, suits, skirts etc! One day I like to dress very feminine and on other days I like to dress more maskuline:)
