Liebster Award!

TishGirl has nominated me for a Liebster Award! She is a phenomenal writer! Go check out her thoughtful posts. Thanks so much for the nomination 🙂


  • Thank the blogger who nominated you, and provide a link to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions given to you.
  • Share 11 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 5-11 other bloggers.
  • Ask your nominees 11 questions.
  • Notify your nominees once you have uploaded your post.


  1. What was the one song that got stuck in your head? Sandstorm by Darude.
  2. Tea, coffee or hot chocolate? Take your pick and state your favorite flavour (if you’ve not chosen hot chocolate). Definitely tea!!! It’s so hard to choose one… I would say berry or anything fruity.
  3. What’s the one thing that reminds you of school? Whenever September comes it always reminds me of the first day of school.
  4. Two positive and two negative things about yourself? Positive: I can find many positives in most situations, and I have a lot of passion and persistence. Negative: I can be extremely stubborn, and I see everything black and white.
  5. Would you rather have the ability to control the weather, or have the ability to talk to animals? Both would be cool… talking to animals could be both a good and bad thing, but I’d still have to say yeah I would rather talk to animals because I love them.
  6. What inspired you to start blogging? I actually made my first blog when I was ten years-old and I was inspired because I always loved writing and it was therapeutic for me. It was on Xanga! This particular blog I started because I wanted to really commit to writing and actually challenge myself to write more and see where that would take me.
  7. What’s the best book you’ve read? That’s a really tough question! I’m going to say The Scarlett Letter.
  8. Name the celebrity you admire and the one celebrity you dislike. I really like Miley Cyrus because she is great at her job as an entertainer and doesn’t take herself too seriously and is able to make fun of herself, but also makes an effort to stand up for human rights, animal rights, environmental rights. I really dislike Guy Fieri because his hair just really bothers me, I’m sorry.
  9. If you could time travel, where would you go? I would go to the 70s, the 60s, the 1920s, the Victorian era, the pre-industrial era, the middle ages, the Ptolemaic dynasty, the Old Kingdom, and the beginning of time.
  10. What’s your favorite holiday? My favorite holiday is Halloween!
  11. Are you a talker or a listener? I’m definitely more of a listener.

    Your name Laura Cyrena is really pretty. I feel like it’ll be a perfect name for a character in a fantasy setting. And same, I’d rather talk to animals too.
