Thank you to Sue at My BiPolar Adventures for her gracious and thoughtful nomination. If you’re like me and LOVE to know the origins of things, check out this exposé on the Liebster award.

Otherwise …

Rules of the Liebster Award.

My 11 Questions From ‘Sue, With Answers-

1.   What is your absolute, without-a-doubt favorite movie of all-time (and what is it about this movie that makes it your favorite?) Yeah, I know.  That was sneaky.   😉

Spartacus. Because in real life, I’m a gladiator.

2.   How long have you been blogging?

I’ve been blogging since February, 2015.

3.   What kind of impact has blogging had on your life?

My site is primarily about my hauntings with Specter – the personification of my deep depression, as well as my suicide attempt in September of 2014. I also blog about my faith, which has been a huge  and now that I’ve been through the

4.   So far, what has been your greatest triumph in life?

I performed at the Circus Maximas

5.   What is your dream job (and why)?  I know, I know.  I did it again.  😉


6.   Favorite band?  (I know I’d have trouble with this one so I’ll allow you 3, haha.)

Five Finger Death Punch (Bullet for My Valentine and Black Veil Brides)

7.   How would you describe your personality?

During the day I’m introverted and a dork. At night I’m a gladiator.

8.   What is your favorite thing (personality trait, talent, physical feature, etc.) about yourself?  Yep, you guessed it – and why?

I don’t know what my favorite thing about me is, but I’ll tell you what it AIN’T – my nose…because I used to think it was large and hook-like. 

9.   How do you feel about medication (mental illness-wise)?

If it makes me feel better, I’m going to most likely take it. I would rather take a medication that lifts the grey I live with, than not take it and chance Specter leaving his rusty cage.

10.  What’s your favorite personality trait in others (what draws you to certain people?)

I like people that drive on the right-hand side (U.S.-specific) of the road when they’re going under the speed limit.

11.  Did you enjoy answering these questions?  I sure hope so!

 Yes I did, Sue! Thank you for nominating me 🙂

      Here’s the Google def, Dan – “a humorous image, video, piece of text, etc. that is copied (often with slight variations) and spread rapidly by Internet users.” My Saturday Night Funnies (under my Humor category) are ones that I’ve created.

    You favor people who drive on the appropriate side of the road in the states? See, dude, I’d have totally gone with, “I’m fond of people who don’t try to stab me.”
    Me and my lofty standards!
    Long live Death Punch, The Brides, and Bullet!
