The Awesome Blogger Award!

Clara nominated me for this. It was really fun to answer all of her questions and make up my own questions.

They are pretty cool I guess. Kind of ugly.

Camp, my birthday, swimming, warm weather, no school. Honestly I just love summer!

4. What is your opinion on handshakes?
Handshakes are okay. I haven’t really shaken many (or any) hands, though, so I’m probably not qualified to answer this. 😂

I have slaughtered chickens multiple times.

U-ka-lay-lee. What’s the right way??

Trolls. I just don’t like them, any of them. 

9. What’s one thing you hope will be invented in your lifetime?
Huh…….I’m not sure.

Probably a laptop, unrealistically and realistically a brand new Life Proof case for my phone. 😀

    1. It’s actually my first name that no one can pronounce right. Esmeralda is hard to say as well and I’m not exactly sure how I would write out how it sounds if you know what I mean. 😀


  1. Thanks for tagging me! ❤ That's so cool that you and your mom share a birthday! My little sisters' birthdays are exactly six months apart (January 26th and June 26th), which I think is crazy awesome, haha
