Questions and Answers Part 2: T0F Answers!

by Grace 19. January 2018 11:22

Hey everyone!

As you can see, I'm only posting T0F answers today. That's because I gave lengthened answers, and my responses to all of your questions were really long (some of them several paragraphs long). If you haven't guessed already, I'll post answers to your questions in more than one post. ;)

Well, here goes nothing!

1. I have glasses.
True! But I got them when I was seven, and went through about 8 in a year or two. I got contacts when I was 11, I believe.
2. I'm talkative and outgoing.
False. Not really. I’m generally pretty friendly, but I'm definitely an introvert.
3. I've had braces before.
False. My two older brothers have, though! One of them still has braces.
4. My favorite meal is taco salad.
TRUE!!!!! Beef is best, but chicken is good too. And LOTS of seasoning with LOTS of cumin!!!
5. My favorite songwriters are Jim Brady, Arthur Rice and Dennis Murphy. (I bet this'll be a hard one for you all!)
False. I do like some of the songs that these three wrote, but between the three of them, I only know around 9 songs that they wrote.
My favorites are hands down Rodney Griffin, Roger Bennet, and Diane Wilkinson.
6. I started writing poetry when I was 11.
False. I was nine when I first started.
7. I've worked at a fast food restaurant before.
False! I’ve worked at a high school and at county fairs before, but never at a fast food restaurant.
8. I don't know how to swim.
True.
9. I hate tapping.
TRUE.
10. I have a bad temper when roused.
True. It’s not very often, but I don’t get light feelings of anger. I’m either perfectly happy or extremely angry, usually only when I’m tired and hungry (hangry or tangry, as my cousin puts it.)
11. The four courses I'm currently taking for this second quarter for my paralegal program are Criminal Law, Real Estate Transactions, Legal Philosophy and Reasoning, and Faith and Vocation.
True! I’m really enjoying this quarter.
12. The courses I took for my last quarter were Common Law, Family Law, Faith and Vocation, and Tort Law.
False. I took Faith and Vocation this quarter – not last quarter.

Now let's hear from you!

Do you feel that you learned more about me? Was there anything you were surprised about? How many (if you guessed any) did you get right?

If you have more questions that you want me to answer, the Questions and Answers comment board is still open for more questions!!!

Questions and Answers (Q+A)

by Grace 11. January 2018 19:29

Hello everyone!

I saw that a lot of other bloggers often do these little thingys that they call Q+As (but my logical mind wants to call them questions and answers ;) and they looked like a lot of fun.

So I thought that I'd do one!

Go ahead and ask me any questions you want to -- about me, my music and poetry, my work, by beliefs, inspirations + aspirations + perspirations, and anything else you can think of in the comments.

Have fun with it!

And while you're at it, here's a true-or-false for you (or if we call questions and answers Q+As, T-0-fs). See how many things you know about me!

1. I have glasses.

2. I'm talkative and outgoing.

3. I've had braces before.

4. My favorite meal is taco salad.

5. My favorite songwriters are Jim Brady, Arthur Rice and Dennis Murphy. (I bet this'll be a hard one for you all!)

6. I started writing poetry when I was 11.

7. I've worked at a fast food restaurant before.

8. I don't know how to swim.

9. I hate tapping.

10. I have a bad temper when roused.

11. The four courses I'm currently taking for this second quarter for my paralegal program are Criminal Law, Real Estate Transactions, Legal Philosophy and Reasoning, and Faith and Vocation.

12. The courses I took for my last quarter were Common Law, Family Law, Faith and Vocation, and Tort Law.

 

 

Now let's hear from you!

What are some questions you all may have for me? Is there anything that you've always wondered about me? What are your answers to the T-0-Fs?

Summer Special Tag

by Grace 19. June 2017 21:18

Hello everyone! I was tagged by Grace, who blogs over at Grace Notes (Thanks Grace!). I'm super excited about this because, as you all probably know, I've never been tagged before! Alright, so let's get started!

 

1) What is a nickname only your family calls you?
Um… I don’t really have any! I know my Mom calls me Cinderella sometimes… That’s about it. My name doesn’t really have any add-ons and most of my family members don’t usually make up weird random names for each other. I sometimes call one of my little brothers ‘Ducky,’ but that’s about it.
2) What’s a weird habit of yours?
Smelling my fingers… XD
3) Do you have any strange phobias?
No, not that I can think of… Except fearing that I've really messed something up - but there's a somewhat embarrassing reason for that... Occasionally I'm pretty good at messing things up! ;) (By the way, do you know how many times I've already gone back and edited this post??? More times than I'd like to admit!)
4) What’s a song that you secretly like to blast and belt out when you’re alone?
Well, what I blast and belt when I’m alone is the same thing I’ll blast and belt through the house, haha! I sing a pretty wide variety of songs, but recently I’ve been singing Meet Me at the Cross by Liberty Quartet a whole lot, and I also often sing Salt and Light by the Bontragers a lot. And then I also sing songs that I've written a lot. But honestly, what I sing changes a lot. Next week it'll probably be Kingdom Heirs, next week Triumphant Quartet, next Greater Vision, next Legacy Five, next week the Wiggles or Veggie Tales... Okay, maybe not. But you get the point. It really just matters what I've been listening to recently. My all-time favorite songs are probably I’ve Just Started Living and the hymn There Is a Fountain.
5) What’s one of your pet peeves?
Tapping. I hate the sound of people tapping. I hate seeing people tap… Even if I can’t hear it.
6) What’s one of your nervous habits?
I have trouble eating sometimes. That’s about it. I don’t get nervous generally unless I’m around people and I’m uncomfortable, and in that case I usually just leave the area. I’m an introvert, by the way. :)
7) What’s a YouTuber that almost always makes you laugh?
I don’t watch any specific YouTubers, and I really only use it for Southern Gospel music. But I did get a good kick out of this video and this one that my brother Daniel made for his YouTube Channel. Also, Southern Gospel singers can make some of the most hilarious jokes I’ve ever heard, so I occasionally get a good laugh out of them!
8) What was your first stuffed animal and what was its name?
Oh goodness! I don’t remember! I do remember having this little grey and white kitten that I adored, but I don’t remember its name and it disappeared one day and I don’t know what happened to it! Never found it again. *Sniffs*
9) What’s the drink you always order at Starbucks?
Ehehe… Believe it or not, I don’t think I’ve ever gotten anything at Starbucks. :/
10) Do you have any weird body skills?
I can roll the ends of my tongue up so that the sides touch! That’s about it…
11) What’s your favorite comfort food that’s bad but you eat it anyways?
ICECREAM!!! I’m honestly not very much of a dessert person. I’d usually rather eat salad or something. But I will ALWAYS eat ice cream. And I mean ALWAYS. I also enjoy donuts quite a bit, but even those I might skip occasionally.
12) What’s a phrase or exclamation you always say?
Um… I don’t know… ‘Oh my’… ‘Oops’… ‘No no that’s naughty’… Yeah, not much. XD
13) What did you use to wear that you would never wear now?
I don’t know… There’s not really anything that I wore before that I wouldn’t wear again.
14) What did you want to be when you were young?
Hm… A mother. I think that’s it. :)
15) How tall are you?
I’m 5’5½”. But that's when Mom measures me. Dad has measured me the past few times, and he says I'm half an inch shorter than that. Haha!

Bonus Question: What are 5 ways to win your heart/become a great friend?
1. Doing something related to music with me. Chatting about Southern Gospel Quartets, singing harmony, playing instruments, asking me to perform… That’s a good way to start! Giving my favorite style of music a shot, really. Not many people like the type of music I enjoy these days. :(
2. Talk to me and expect me to listen to you. Seriously. If you want to become my friend, sit and talk to me about whatever you want. I usually don’t have much of my own to say, especially when meeting for the first time.
3. Be the first one to approach! XD I’m an introvert, so I have trouble approaching people, and I have trouble with thinking that people don’t want to talk to me, don’t like me, and that I’m boring people. That's something that I've really been working on changing.

4. Buy me a Dairy Queen Blizzard! XD
5. Talk to me about something deep. I don’t particularly enjoy small-talk. I’d rather talk about theology or prayer requests or thoughts on life or personal things and stuff like that. If it’s small-talk, trust that I won’t have much to add to the conversation. Sure, if you start cracking jokes and what-not, I’ll join in and laugh. Everyone in my family knows I’ll laugh at anything that’s supposed to be a joke, even if it isn’t really funny. But don’t expect me to add anything to the conversation! I’m horrible at jokes, by the way… :/
6. (Yes, before you say anything, I know there wasn’t supposed to be a six.) Chat with me about some poetry and some lyrics! This is kind of a mix between one and five. Talk about whether the lyrics were any good or not, what you liked about them, how good the alliteration was in the words, stuff like that.

Well, I hope you all enjoyed my two-cents worth! And to wrap up, I'll tag a few other people:

Allison @ fromallison.com

Bethany @ todaylibertyordeath.blogspot.com/

Lizbeth @ lizbetherazo.weebly.com/

Joy @ cherrytreepoet.wordpress.com/ and blogofjoy.com

 

 

Now let's hear from you!

Did you enjoy learning a little bit more about me? What are YOUR answers to these questions?

Greetings!

by Grace 30. May 2017 19:34

Hello there and welcome to my blog! My name is Grace and I’m a 17-year-old home-schooled country girl who has a passion for following Jesus, writing music and poetry, singing, public performance, debate, big families, and Southern Gospel Music.

Here’s a few fun facts about me:

            -I’m the third oldest of 10 kids, and the oldest girl.

            -I can play the guitar, the mandolin, the violin, a little piano, the double bass, the harmonica, and a little bit of the organ. However, I usually stick to the first four.

-I’m homeschooled.

-I live on 50 acres.

-I LOVE Southern Gospel Music (all though I’m not southern at all… I’m in Oregon).

            -Some of my favorite music groups are the Kingdom Heirs, the Bontrager Family Singers, and the Cathedral Quartet. I also enjoy listening to the Mylon Hayes Family, Legacy Five, Greater Vision, and Triumphant Quartet.

            -I love singing and so do my siblings. We are actually currently working on a cd together! We’ve made two cds before, but those were sold only to friends and family. The one we’re working on we’re hoping to set out for public purchase!

            -I love writing music and poetry and have been doing it ever since I was nine.

 

I’ve wanted to start a blog for a while, but one of the main things that changed it from dream to reality was the fact that I couldn’t keep up with everyone who wanted to hear and read my poetry. Emails, writing groups, family get-togethers… I decided to put it all in one place where everyone could access it easily at any time. Although this blog won’t be exclusively poetry, it will have a lot of it. (:

Feel free to stay a while and drop me a comment or two!

-Grace
