Liebster Blog Award!

I'm excited to say I have received my first blogging award! Thank you to Ana  from The Adventures Within and "Bow-ties are Cool" from What the Hell is a Hufflepuff? . This award is for bloggers with less than 200 followers. So pretty much you share 10 facts about yourself and answer 10 questions from the person who tagged you. Then, you tag 10 more people and give them 10 questions to answer. That is a lot of 10's but you get it. Oh yeah, and no tag backs.

10 Facts About Me
~I talk more than an average person...way more.
~Rain calms me.
~ I love math and am actually quite good at it.
~Tapping bothers me.
~ I am a horrible writer. I love reading, but writing just doesn't come naturally to me.
~I enjoy playing volleyball.
~I eat at least one mango per day. I love them.
~OCD (nuff said)
~I have never really had to go to the hospital(except for when I was born obviously).
~ I have a fear of people sneaking up on me. You have been warned.

Questions from The Adventures Within
~ Name a book you regret buying and wish you hadn't read it.
So far I haven't found any books like that. I try to find something good about each book.
~ A book you really want to read but haven't been able to buy it.
City of Bones By Cassandra Clare. I have been hearing so much about this book but I just haven't had a chance to get it yet.
~What actor or singer would you want to meet if they were still alive?
Actually, I have no idea......
~Do you have an OCD?
Wow I didn't even know that was a question when writing my facts. I am not quite sure what is meant by "an OCD". It's a disorder. But, yes I have OCD and it in no way is debilitating to me. 
~If all the hot superheros asked you out which one would you pick?
Uhhhhh.... None. I'm not one for superheros.
~Your phobias?
Drowning, being buried alive, having the people I love be in pain and not being able to do anything about it, people sneaking up on me,....the usual.
~If you had a million dollars what would you do with it?
Realistically, I would probably give some to my brothers to pay off debt for collage, and give some to my parents to pay off stuff and buy them a new house on the beach like they want, and I would put some into savings for myself and of course spend a bunch on clothes and books, and probably give the rest to charity. Now, on a totally unrealistic basis, I would buy a huge zoo (so that the animals have plenty of room to roam) and fill it with awesome animals and hire the best zookeepers and that would only be for my family and closet friends.Ether that or I would buy a house with a huge library room in it filled with my favorite books and a bunch more to read.  And I would throw a huge party. And of course buy a bunch of stuff. 
~If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?
Australia. I have always wanted to visit there. Not just because they name their cities so well. And I won't have to worry about trying to understand a language I don't know.
~Favorite ice cream flavor or drink.
My favorite ice cream flavor is Moose Tracks. It is vanilla ice cream with fudge swirl and peanut butter cups.
~Something you can't live without.
As bad as it sounds, my laptop. Well that and internet. Okay, maybe internet..but that wouldn't matter if I didn't have my laptop. It's a vicious cycle.

Questions from What the Hell is a Hufflepuff?
~What book have you read more than all of your books?
Probably Dash & Lily's Book of Dares By Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. It is a great book and fairly quick read, so whenever I want to read a book I know is good I will pick this one.
~What is your all time favorite movie?
Ooooooooo.... That's a hard one.....I guess I am going to say....Probably "The Parent Trap". I never tire of that movie.
~Coffee or tea?
 Generally I would say tea. But it is a little bias because I haven't really had coffee before. But I do love tea. My favorite is english breakfast.
~If you could choose one fictional character to be real, who would it be and why?
Well, i'm not sure. It seems like most book characters bug me in some way. I guess I would have to say Teresa from The Maze Runner trilogy. She just seems like she would be a great friend, she is very smart and fiercely loyal to those she loves and if she wasn't is such circumstances as she was in in these books I am sure she would have been a nicer person.
~What is your biggest accomplishment thus far?
Biggest accomplishment....let me think.....umm I think it is too early in my life to have had that big of an accomplishment, but I will just say all the success I have had academically.
~What is your favorite summer activity?
Definitively swimming. 
~If you could be anything, what would you be?
As in a job? Then I would love to be an editor for a magazine or just a book editor.
~What is your favorite television show and why?
Gahhh...another hard one....OH! "Avatar: The Last Airbender" I LOVE THAT SHOW! 
~Who is your favorite character of all time and why? 
Ummmm...while on the subject of Avatar, Toph BeiPhong. She is just awesome.
~Do you have any pets? What kinds?
I don't have any pets...
