So ... Rebekah, over at Rebekah Ashleigh tagged me for the "Few of your Favorite things" tag. Thanks, Rebekah!!! :D
-Write down ten of your favorite things
-Tag at least three others!
1.) Books. Yep, you all knew this was going to be on here. Right at the top. But seriously, I don't think I could survive very long without books. They're an escape from all the craziness that happens in real life. Every once in a while it's nice to get away and escape into another world. (Please tell me I'm not alone here!)
3.) The World War Two History Center. I have no words to describe how much I enjoy going to this place! The people are so friendly, their library is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. I mean, guys. A whole room filled with books exclusively about WWII? *nods ecstatically* YES PLEASE! This place has been such a help to me in my research, and talking to the "soldiers" at their annual battle reenactment is awesome as well!
4.) Writing. Because there is just something about putting words down on paper. It's a way I sort out my feelings, the way I communicate so much of what is on my heart, and of course it's an amazing way to get to know your character. ;) (Like, it's the only way to do that, I think. I might be wrong.)
5.) Music. Ask anyone in my family, I always have something playing, and more often than not it's music. Music, like books, has a way to take me away from reality. Or at least make my life so much more enjoyable. I mean, come on. Why just do algebra when you could be doing algebra and listening to your favorite music?! (Yes, I'm one of those weird people who listens to music during schoolwork.)
6.) My country. Because even though we have fallen so far from where we used to be, in this country, in America, we still have the freedom to worship God as we please. And that freedom should never be taken lightly.
7.) Return to the Hiding Place. It's just an awesome movie that everyone needs to watch!! And it's WWII. If you haven't figured it out by now, anything WWII holds a certain, unexplained fascination for me!
8.) Google docs, because than I don't have to worry about accidentally forgetting to click "save". I still have nightmares about that happening!
|There was no way I was going to leave this favorite thing without a picture! Although ... I have no idea what he's doing with a pencil, since google docs is supposed to be on the internet ...|
9.) Emails and Letters. Nothing brightens my day quite like getting an email or a letter in the mail! :)
10.) God's plan for my life. Now I know this is a little weird to be a part of my "favorite things", but I am so thankful that I know God has a plan for my life, and the fact that He has everything under control is truly one of my favorite things.
I tag ...
And that's all for this post! I shall, Lord willing, be back tomorrow with a post about ... writing! Oh, and did you notice that I didn't list editing as a favorite thing? Well, that's 'cause it's not. But, you can hear more about it tomorrow. =)
