Random | Liebster Award Nomination #2 | #BEDM Day 8

Yay I have been nominated for a second time! I truly love doing these Q&A posts, so I couldn't pass this opportunity up again! 

Thank you so much to the wonderful Wesley at The Working Nerd Alert! I am truly honored you have nominated me again! =] If you have not been to her blog, check it out now! Great advice for the workplace! She's also an amazing writer!! 

If you haven't heard of the Liebster Award, it is an award to help promote up and coming bloggers. Usually nominated to bloggers with followers in the range of under 200-3000. You also have to follow a set of rules if you accept the award. Check out my previous nomination here for all the rules!

So here are the questions Wesley asked me:
1) What inspired you to start blogging in the first place?
I needed a creative outlet that could range from super creative to simple. I also have always loved meeting new people and blogging opens the doors to meeting people all over the world. 

2) What do you do in "real-life"?
I work for the state of Mississippi as a shift supervisor in the traffic division. :) 

3) What other activities do you enjoy besides blogging/writing?
Makeup/beauty, photography, football. 

4) What is your favorite place that you have traveled to/lived in?
Favorite place traveled would have to be New York. I want to go back soon and visit more places. It is such a huge city, we didn't get all the time we needed to see everything!

Favorite place lived would have to be Washington State. I used to live there for the majority of my life & I took it for granted. I miss the scenery, the weather (ie no freaking allergies or dying humid air!), & all the ethnic food I grew up around. I'm lacking all that food these days. :( 

5) If you could have one super power, what would it be?
Hmmm, one super power. I think it would have to be flying. For many reason I would go with flying. One major one would be the fresh air above all. The sights you could see from above would also be breath taking. The free feeling you would get from gliding/flying around would be exhilarating. 

6) What is your biggest pet peeve?
Ohhh time. Time is my biggest pet peeve. I can not stand tardiness at all. I actually stress out just from the feeling of being late. 

7) What is your favorite smell?
My favorite smell would have to be all the home cooking from my mom! I haven't smelled all that wonderfulness in so long, so I know I would completely drool if I could smell it right now. :) 

8) What is your favorite memory?
This is a tough one. I have so many memories I couldn't possibly pin point one. I truly would have to say my favorite overall memory is the traveling my husband and I did last winter. It was our first real vacation together, so it was nice to be with him and experience new things together. 

9) If you could meet one celebrity, who would it be?
Ohh man, another hard one. It would have to be someone who is inspirational and I could learn a great deal from. I would want to take advantage of the chance to meet a successful celebrity. So I think I would have to chose Oprah. hehe =]

10) Do you speak any other languages? If not, which would you like to learn?
I do not. I can understand a little bit of Tagalog (Filipino Language) & a smidge of Japanese. Since I do not fully understand both languages I would want to learn them both. Tagalog mainly so I could speak fluently with my mother & Japanese because my husband and I dream of going to Japan. 

11) If you had to sing one song to karaoke, what song would that be?
Again, the hard questions. Haha ;p 
I can not think of one song to sing to karaoke! Omg, FAIL! Haha 
Okay I think it would have to be the final collab song sang at the end of PItch Perfect. Totally loved that mix of different songs!

  11. What inspires you everyday?
 Alright girls! There are all your questions. Hope you have just as much fun as I did answering all them! :) 
This post is going to be a replacement for my #BEDM Day 8 post. The topic was something historic in my area. I haven't lived here long, so nothing memorable has happened while I was here. The only thing I could think of blogging about was the string of tornadoes that slammed the state. I rather not boast on that one, because some areas are still undergoing relief efforts. Nonetheless, I hope you guys enjoy this second nomination for the Liebster Award! I totally felt honored I was nominated for a second time! 
Until Next Time, 
Avie T.
