This means I'm pretty much famous now, right?

First off, I'm so sorry for the lack of posts this week. I had a Weather and Climate test this morning (gross) and I've been focused on that all week. But stay tuned because soon I'll be sharing some excerpts from my study playlist!

But I got some exciting news today....drumroll please.... I won Liebster award for up-and-coming bloggers with less than 200 followers (I have way less so I'm quite qualified!) from Ali over at Monogrammed Scrubs and Strings of Pearls. It's official, I'm now slapping "runs an award-winning blog" on my resume.

"The Liebster Blog Award is given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. The meaning; Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome."
The rules for this award are:

1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you've tagged to answer
3. Choose people and link them in your post
4. Go to their page and tell them
5. Remember, no tag backs!

11 Things You Don't Know About Me
1. Right now I'm watching Criminal Minds, one of my favorite shows. For a while I thought I wanted to be a criminal behavior analyst because of this show.

2. The reason I realized I couldn't be a criminal behavior analyst? I'm a very empathetic person. If one of my friends has a problem I sympathy stress so much. This is why I try to surround myself with only positivity and optimistic people. Negativity affects me too much and is completely unproductive. 
3. I love to sing and wish I still had an outlet to do so. I did Show Choir all through high school and I absolutely loved it.
Gotta love mid-show singing facials. Check out those good looking blue sparkly dresses.
4. Crafting is my thing. I love to paint and create things. My crafting supplies are getting out of control right now and I seriously need a better way to organize them.
5. I've worked as a summer camp counselor the past two summers and it's absolutely changed my life. I taught crafts and Native American Lore (we painted faces, made bracelets, and played Native games) my first summer and sailing my second summer. I would give anything to be back on the lake teaching sailing one more time because it was the absolute best. Because of camp I've met some of my best friends and realized that I want to work with kids for the rest of my life.
My camp family! (It's a Native American themed camp- hence the outfits)
6. I go to Trivia Night at a local pizza place with some of my friends every Wednesday and it's one of the highlights of my week.
7. If I could eat Zaxby's for every meal and not get fat or go broke, I would.

8. My biggest celebrity crush is Justin Timberlake and has been since his NSYNC days. His marriage crushed me. Jessica you are a lucky woman.
Hello beautiful. 
9. I love musical theater and the soundtracks from musicals. My favorite of all time is RENT and my current favorite soundtrack fluctuates between Aida and the Hair new Broadway cast recording.
10. People watching is one of my favorite things. UGA for sure provides for some interesting times.
11. I think I have a legitimate addiction to Diet Coke.

Questions from Ali
1. Where do you go to school? What are you studying?

8. Worst hair cut/color/styling experience

How it ended up looking! :)
