Liebster Award; Take 2 (and 3!)

I recently was nominated for the Liebster Award, and even more recently I found out I was nominated two more times! Yay! I won't do the whole shindig again, but I thought it would be fun to answer all the questions directed at me!

My questions from Octavia at Octavia and the Ocean are:

1. What would your sleep schedule be like if you had nothing to do?
I feel like I wouldn't be so tired if I didn't have anything to do! But right now I normally go to bed by 10, and I think I'd stay up a little later than that and probably aim for 8-9 hours of sleep. I cherish my sleep, even though it'd be great to have that "I'll sleep when I'm dead" attitude.

2. If some magical stranger paid your airfare to go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
So many choices! I guess someplace that is way out of my current price range, like Australia or New Zealand!

3. Would you take the chance to live off of the land if you could?
Umm, probably not. I cringe at the thought of even camping in a tent.

4. Does your favorite color have any special meaning to you?
I like lots of colors, so my favorite color is rainbow! So not really, but a good question!

5. What do you do for a living, and what would you like to be doing to make a living?
I'm a barista/server at a corporation. I'm trying to get a job within the corporation doing social media! We'll see...

6. Do you have a celebrity idol?
No idols, per se, but I really love Claire Danes and she would play me in the movie of my life.

7. Do you play any instruments/consider yourself to have any musical prowess?
I took violin lessons for several years, but I rarely practice. I do think I have a knack for music, however. My major was Music Industry Management after all!

8. What was the last book you read, what was your opinion of it?
Ughh, I do not read enough. I think the last book I read was the second Game of Thrones book. I was disappointed that it really was just a bridge between books 1 and 3 and nothing was really accomplished.

9. What was your childhood dream job?
A ballerina or a magician! Cool, huh?

10. What is the most influential piece of music in your life?
Ooh, I've really loved music all my life, so that's difficult. I went to a Christian school for a long time, so there are a lot of songs we sang in chapel that I still love, like "Pass It On" and "The Butterfly Song." In high school I listened to "Konstantine" by Something Corporate and "The Tide" by the Spill Canvas and so many other great songs. I'll have to do a high school soundtrack post sometime.

11. Are there any word or phrases that you say as a bad habit and wish you could stop?
Not that I can think of!

And my questions from Jenn at Hello Gutentag:

1. Do you like to do your nails, if so what colours do you mainly use?
I don't do my nails much because I work in food service, but I usually wear Green with Envy by Maybelline on my toes!

2. Are you studying anything at the moment?
I'm all done with school, but if I don't get a real job soon, I'm considering it! I'd also really like to brush up on French.

3. Do you play any sports?
Not really, I used to! I'm kind of lazy these days, but I like to stay active by walking, 'playing' tennis, kayaking, or playing Just Dance 4 on our Wii!

4. On a lazy day what is your favourite thing to do?
I just said I'm lazy, but I also have trouble just laying around all day doing nothing. Every once in a while though I just lay in bed all day and watch a season of some TV show or lots of movies. It's especially nice with a cat to cuddle!

5. What is your favorite smell?
That's a hard one. I sure like my "Twirl" by Kate Spade though: )

6. What kind of cell phone do you have, would you change it?
I recently broke down and bought an iPhone. It's so expensive! But it's so necessary...

7. Night or day person?
I like both morning and night, they both have great qualities. It just depends on the day! Sometimes I love to get up early and enjoy the morning and get a ton of stuff done and see that it's still before noon. Other times I love to sleep way in and then stay up real late!

8. Coke or Pepsi?
I rarely drink pop but definitely (Diet) Coke!

9. If you could change one thing about your self what would it be?
I wish I could sell myself a little better. I lack confidence sometimes and I feel like that causes me to miss out on some opportunities!

10. Dogs or cats?
Cats!!! ^.^

11. Are you a hockey fan? If so what are your thoughts on the NHL lock out?
Not particularly, but it's good for Michigan. And that it's over, good riddance, I was sick of everyone complaining!

Tomorrow's Friday! Goodnight: )
