I’d like to send a huge thanks to my friend Emily @ThatWeirdGirlLife for nominating me for The Real Neat Blog Award.
If you haven’t checked out her blog before, get on that because she posts about all kinds of topics that are personal and fun and she’s super cool.
- Display the award logo.
- Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog.
- Answer the questions from the blog who nominated you.
- Nominate seven to ten bloggers.
- Ask them seven questions.
1.) If you could live anywhere in the world (besides the place you’re currently living), where would you live?
Anywhere near a beach. It doesn’t need to be a place that’s hot every day of the year, but just so I can be near the ocean.
2.) What’s a guilty pleasure movie/show/book/food/activity you like to indulge in?
If I’m in the mood to play The Sims, I could do it all day, but I try not to do that very often. As for food, any kind of dessert like cheesecake or pie.
3.) What’s a cause that you are passionate about?
There’s a bunch I’m pretty passionate about but animal rights are a big one whether it’s getting rid of big game hunting, poaching, or conservation. Taking care of the planet in general.
4.) What’s something about blogging that annoys you?
I know people say, “Numbers aren’t everything,” but when you work hard on a post, maybe over a few days or weeks, and it just doesn’t do well when it comes to views. That you put in all that effort and you feel like no one wants to read it.
Also, WordPress because it keeps messing up the dates of my posts. So I could post something on March 19 but it will say it posted March 15?
5.) If your life had a theme song, what song would it be?
“Dream On” by Aerosmith put me to sleep when I was a baby so I kind of just use it for everything.
However, there is a small band I discovered in college, Paradise Fears, whose song “Battle Scars” is one of my favorites ever and helped get me through those shitty few years.
6.) Do you believe in ghosts, and if so, have you ever seen one?
I do. I believe our energy just doesn’t disappear when we die and maybe even parts of it can linger, even if most of it moved on, or maybe all of it is stuck. And I believe that can be good or bad, or positive and negative.
But, I don’t think I’ve ever seen one in person. I think I’ve had some strange experiences like hearing or feeling things (I ran out of a notoriously haunted wax museum as a kid because I felt something was very off. And no, I didn’t know it was haunted until I was older.)
HOWEVER, I did take a picture at Gettysburg one time and in it is the outline of what appears like a person. No one in my family can debunk it. It’s on the outside of a battlefield next to the forest. I’d post it if I could find it.
7.) What does your perfect day off look like?
Sleeping in an extra fifteen minutes (those extra minutes matter), spend the morning writing or reading blog posts, journaling, get in an early workout and take my dog on a walk if it’s nice, take a bath, and spend the rest of the day reading or watching a show or playing The Sims.
Or it could be a day my family and I go to Pittsburgh to shop.

- What is your favorite streaming service? If you don’t have any, what’s your favorite channel to watch? Or, you can answer both.
- What’s a song you’re embarrassed to say you like? (We won’t judge.)
- How would you describe yourself as a child?
- And what were your favorite toys/things to do?
- What is your favorite dog breed?
- If you won the lottery, what’s the first thing you’d do with it?
- Would you rather be a hero or a villain for a day?
Again, thank you, Emily! I had a lot of fun and haven’t done an award post in a while so this was such a nice change-up.
