Leibster Award Time!

I’ve been meaning to do this, but I’ve been forgetting it.  Anywho, this is the second award that I’ve been nominated for, and this is making me feel special.  So, a big thank you to bipolarlifebalance for being so kind to nominate me. You’re awesome!


  1. What was the last lie you told?

I think the last lie I’ve told someone is that I’m happy when I’m really not.  It’s complicated.

2. Who is your favourite super hero?

Superhero! Oh my gosh.  I had to think about this one because there are 2 Marvel superheroes that come to mind: Iron Man and Spider-Man. I mean, come on, Peter Parker is a cutie pie, and Tony Stark has a sass level of 10,000.  But, if I had to pick one, I’d pick Iron Man because of the complexity of his character.

3. What was the first book to have a lasting impact on you?

I had to take a day or so to think about this question.  I was a bookworm when I was younger, and I’m trying to get back into reading, but it’s hard with college work piling on.  I do think it was one of 3 books: A Reader’s Digest book, a Magic Tree House book, or Twilight.  Now, the Reader’s Digest book was surprisingly my first book that I read.  I was deaf when I was a toddler, so I taught myself to read lips and words.  I remember sitting there watching how someone’s lips formed on a television and what the word was supposed to be.  So, I read at the age of 3 this huge Reader’s Digest book, and my grandmother freaked out because I read so flawlessly.

I used to be into these Magic Tree House books, and it gave me a sense of adventure.  When I was 3, I would read them and look forward to reading about Jack and Annie traveling to a jungle or on the Titanic.  It made my love of reading grow and that was when I was at the height of my reading binges.

Twilight.  The dreaded Twilight Series.  That was the first book that I read that had vampires in it.  Ever since then, I read a lot of books about vampires, and I love the aesthetic of these vampires.  There’s usually a flaw within them, but I like said flaws, even if a Cullen does sparkle in the sun.  This series is important because it sparked the love of the alternative mindset and the alternative lifestyle onto me.  It’s weird, really.

4. What do you see when you look out your bedroom window?

I see a neighbor’s house, a stop sign, an intersection…. And a whole lot of snow.  I’m in the New England part of the US and we’ve been dealing with cold weather and a lot of snow, so that explains it.

5. What was your goal in creating your blog?

I once saw Jackie, a YouTuber I’m subscribed to, and she basically said that more people with schizoaffective disorder need to speak their mind and raise awareness for the illness.  In January, I was told that I might be schizoaffective, and that was when I was like “I need to raise awareness about this illness.”  So, my goal for this blog is to show that a.) Schizoaffective people aren’t that different from others and b.) to connect with others that may have this disorder so that I could have a support group of some kind.

6. What has surprised you most about having your blog?

I expected to have a couple of blogs following me, but now I have 39 wonderful followers looking forward to my post.  All of them deal with some sort of mental illness, and they’ve helped comfort me when I wasn’t at my best. (Still not at my best, but you know what I mean.)  I didn’t expect all of this support from you guys, to be honest.  It warms my heart.

7. Do you have a best friend? What’s their name?

I do have a best friend.  He’s my boyfriend.  I’d rather not post his real name on here for privacy’s sake, so we can call him… James.  Look at me, being creative and using his common middle name.  I’m such a rebel.

8. Who is your Hollywood crush?

Alright, let’s get this straight.  If you told me British or Korean crush, I wouldn’t hesitate on it, but since it’s American, I am stumped.  I think I’d have to go with Jennifer Lawrence.  She’s really pretty and I love her personality.  Ooh, or Katy Perry.  Those 2 are my favorite, to be honest.

9. If you could choose to be famous OR successful…which would you choose?

I would like to be famous.  The reason is because people would look up to me, and I’d be able to try making a difference in the world.  I’d like to help make people’s day and to talk to them and stuff.  I don’t know, it just sounds like it would be more fun.

10. How do you feel about answering questions like these?

I feel pretty okay with it, but I wouldn’t like to do it too often.  It can get boring, you know…?
