Liebster Award?!

While I was off in my own world of moving into the new place and being anti-social, apparently How to Lose a Girl in Ten Days nominated me for a Liebster Award! In January. Yeah, I'm an ass. Now, let's figure out what this Liebster Award business is all about...

Eleven Questions from How to Lose a Girl in Ten Days, and my responses.

1.  When and why did you decide to write your blog? 
 I decided to write my blog a few days over a year ago. What is it with me and October blogging? I started in October and came back in October. I started blogging because I was in a super weird place in my life. I had recently left school and moved in with my in-laws.

2.  Who (is/are) / (a/some) major influence(s) in your life and why?
 There's definitely my mom...and my mother-in-law. I was raised by a single, working mom and am incredibly respectful for a strong woman. Also, I really don't understand how my mil put up with the husband before I took over the job. Just kidding, I love that man like crazy.

3.  Describe your experience(s) in blogging / writing.
 I had a few different blogs before settling in here at LWC Wonderland. I really do love blogging as long as I don't try to overload myself. When I'm not blogging or working on items for Little Wonderland, then I'm putting my writing skills to work on my fanfics, my novel, or my mod writing.

4.  What is one important life lesson that you have learned?
Life will not always play out how you imagined. When you find yourself in a tipsy-turvy situation, just go with it and cherish every moment. 

5.  What is your favourite quote?
"I myself am entirely made of flaws, stitched together with good intentions." (pin)

6.  Assuming money is no issue, if you could donate to any charity in the world, which would you donate to and why?
ASPCA. Homeless pets need homes.

7.  If you won the lottery, what would you do with your winnings?
Pay off my school loans, buy another car, stock groceries, payback family members, put a lot away, and donate to the charity mentioned above. 

8.  If you could go back and change one moment in your life, would you? If so, what would it be and why?
I would change some bad situations in college...definitely not what you're thinking. I was bullied and I thought I was taking the higher ground by ignoring it. I wish I would've stood up for myself. 

9.  What is one of your favourite things about blogging?
My favorite thing about blogging would have to be...having the chance to write everything down. I have a horrible memory. I've already forgotten a lot of my life. I want to have this to go back and reminisce. 

10.  What are some of your goals for 2014?
I'm sure this made a lot more sense in January, but as I said before: I'm an ass.  My goals for the remainder of 2014 are to keep with the blogging and then continue it on a nice schedule throughout 2015. Also, to get the store to the next level and survive my first mod writing project.

11.  Who is your favourite blogger and why?
 Definitely Raspy Wit. She kills me. I can barely make it through one of her posts without crying from laughter. Plus, she's super nice!
