So I've taken quite an unintended hiatus recently. Summer is fun and glorious and sitting inside writing a blog post hasn't been on the top of my to do list these past couple weeks. 

Although I did stop blogging for some time, the world around me of course didn't. I was nominated by Mariosa @ Pastel Mariosa for the TMI Tag and by F @ The Fence of Stars for the Versatile Blogger Award. Because I'm always one for being efficient, I've decided to smash these two awards into one blog post. 

(Also sorry if this font is different than my usual font. Generally I simply copy and paste the questions for each award/tag, and I can't seem to get the font to look like my normal one. I guess this is what I get for being lazy. Learn from me kids.)

Please try to stay with me here everyone.

Up first is the TMI Tag:

1. What are you wearing?
    I am currently wearing shorts, t shirt, and ball cap because summer. Also laziness.
2. Ever been in love?
   Once with a really good fish taco.
3. Ever had a terrible breakup?
    No. Although I did once break up with a boy over the phone. I was fourteen. He was heartbroken. End of story.
4.  How tall are you?
    5 feet 4 ish inches. 
5. Any tattoos or piercing?
   My ears are double pierced. I'd think my mom would have a heart attack over a tattoo.
6. OTP?    
I have no Earthly idea what an OTP is nevertheless an answer for it.
7.  Favorite TV show?   
I am a big fan of Parks and Recreation and Grey's Anatomy. 
8. Bands?   
I'm not a big fan of bands but more so simply singers. My favorite singer would have to be Ed Sheeran. If I had to go with a band though I'd pick the Lumineers.
9. Things you miss?  
Old friends and old memories.
10. How old are you?     
11. zodiac sign     
12. Quality you look for in a partner?     
Honesty and the same sense of humor as me.
13.  Favorite quote?     
I find nearly all quotes to be overused or over analyzed. Therefore I prefer to simply skip this question.
14.  Loud or soft music?      
Soft generally although sometimes my mood dwells more on the loud side.
15.  Turn on?      
16.  Turn off?

Gossip Girl. Go ahead. Judge me.
20. Place you want to visit?     
Anywhere with a friend.
21. Do you have a crush?    
Somewhat but I'll probably never act on it. I'm shy and timid and fearing when it comes to relationships.
22. Last time you kissed someone?     
Rather not say.
23. Last sport you played?     
24. Favorite pick up line?      
"I think you're suffering from a lack of vitamin me."
25. Who should answer these next?
 Every blogger who just laughed at that pick up line. Don't lie. I saw you. And I will find you.

Next up is the Versatile Blogger Award.

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Share 7 random facts about yourself and answer the challenge.
3. Nominate 5 or more bloggers who you think fit the definition of versatile. 
4. Make up a new challenge.
5. Create your own 'Versatile Blogger Award' picture. (Ain't nobody got time for that. I simply stole one from the internet.)

7 Facts:

1. I know all 43 US presidents in order. Also, a lot of people don't realize that we've had 44 presidencies yet only 43 presidents. Grover Cleveland served two nonconsecutive presidential terms (making him both the 22nd and 24th president) therefore he has two separate presidencies. Confusing times we live in, I know.

(Also, my biggest pet peeve is when people say we've had 44 presidents. Excuse me, we've only had 43. Crack open a US History textbook sometime.)

2. My high school once had a school dance in a bar.

3. I find that Tumblr is extremely confusing and I refuse to use it.

4. I'm currently teaching myself how to play the Ukulele. So far so good. 

5. I've never been to Disney World/Land. A kid in my AP US History class has been to Disney World 13 times. I am only slightly envious of him.

6.  Every female on my mom's side of the family is a teacher. I will be the first woman from that side of family to go into something not related to teaching (so help me God).

7. I just recently found a thrift shop that sells books for 10 cents. TEN CENTS I TELL YOU. (That's .09 Euros for all you European folks. POINT ZERO NINE EUROS I TELL YOU.) Although a hell of a deal, these cheap books will be very bad for my library.

Next up is the challenge. The challenge is to name seven things you want to do (or places you want to visit) before you die. 

1. I've always wanted to get tickets to see a talk show/late night TV/SNL. Most (if not all) tickets are free, it's just a matter of traveling to the city they're filmed in (usually somewhere in California or NYC) and also actually getting the tickets. Popular ones like SNL usually do a lottery or you can camp outside the studio the night before (or sometimes even days before) hoping to snag a ticket that nobody claimed. Others you simply pick the date(s) you'd like to attend and hope you get a call saying you've been chosen to receive the tickets. My top picks would definitely be Ellen, SNL, or Late Night with Seth Meyers (in no particular order).

2. I've always wanted to visit Auschwitz. Albeit morbid, I've always been interested in the Holocaust since the fourth grade. 

3. Also, I'd love to be an extra in a film. I mean, why not?

4. I want to eat (and be able to afford) a real four course meal. Preferably in a nice and beautiful city.

5. I would love to finish writing a novel someday. I don't really care about getting published/having everyone read it/making millions. I just want TO FINISH ONE OF THEM.

6. I want to go on a backpacking trip in the near future. I hear that you can receive some sort of pass to kayak down our National Parks' rivers and I'd love to spend a summer kayaking and reading and eno-ing. But the real question is, how will I fit enough books into one backpack?


7.  Finally, I'd love to film and edit a movie. I've always been fascinated in short films/documentaries, and I'd love to make one of my own. It's a weird thing I know, but humor me here.

Now I'm supposed to nominate people, but I hate nominating others because then they feel like they have to do it in a quick and timely fashion, and so let's just not. Although if you feel so inclined to do this award, go for it. The challenge I bestow upon you is to name seven things on your bucket list.

Also, thanks to both Mariosa and F for the nominations. I'm also unbelievably sorry it took me THIS LONG to get around to doing this. You both are too kind.

Have a fabulous day.
