Infinity Dreams Award

I needed something for my blog today, so Faith Blum’s post on the Infinity Dreams Award was just the thing! She tagged whoever wanted to do it, so I held out my hand for it. I’m not really sure what “Infinity Dreams” means, but oh well. The questions are quite interesting. Thanks, Faith!

Tell us eleven facts about yourself.

1. This is the hardest part of these types of tags for me: coming up with eleven facts to share about myself. ;)
2. My brother and sister-in-law just had their first baby (a boy), so I am now an aunt!
3. My favorite colors are various shades of blue—sky blue, periwinkle, cobalt, royal blue, powder blue. They soothe, cheer, and intrigue me like no other color.
4. My favorite animal is a dolphin, though I’ve never touched one or seen one in person. Their personalities fascinate me, and they’re so beautiful.
5. My favorite trip ever was two weeks in England, back in September 2014. I went with one of my best friends. Part of that time was with a historical costume tour; we got to dress up in Regency and Titanic costumes (I made my Regency dress). Such fun!
6. I am a second-degree black belt in martial arts—my favorite sport.
7. I love teaching, though it always makes me really nervous (at least at first).
8. I’m the only one in my whole extended family who has true red hair.
9. Classical music is my favorite genre of music. One of my favorite pieces (perhaps my absolute) is Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake.
10. I love Hebrew and can read it, though it can take me a while to understand it (especially non-Biblical Hebrew). The Bible’s most ancient language is incredible.
11. Whew. Almost done. Let’s see…one more fact…oh! Unlike quite a few writers I’ve talked to, I love the editing process. I also love proofreading for others.
Answer the eleven questions.
What is your favorite thing to blog about?
Classic books or authors I’ve just read.
Who is your favorite fictional character?
Elinor Dashwood from Sense and Sensibility. I really identify with her, although she’s a lot more admirable than I am, with her strength, fortitude, and competency, among other qualities. Maybe someday I’ll be just like her.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
I don’t know—maybe when people talk badly of others.
If you could visit one place on earth, and only one, where would you choose?
Israel! I want to see the Promised Land, the land where my Lord walked and where God revealed Himself in the Scriptures.
What’s one movie coming out in 2016 you want to watch?
Hmm…let me go look up what’s coming out in 2016…okay, found one! The Jungle Book sounds interesting.
Would you rather time travel to the past or the future? Why?
The past. I would love to see what life was like in the past, preferably 1940s or earlier. And honestly, the future has always scared me a little.
What is your least favorite holiday?
What do you want to be when you “grow up”?
Well, another hard question to answer. I wanted to be an author/writer since I was oh, eleven or so, and I am, but I’d like to be more and more of one as the years go by. I want to be a wife and mother, too, and then there’s an editor, and I will always want to be some sort of teacher. Right now it’s a karate teacher. So the only thing I haven’t started “becoming” is a wife and mother.
If someone offered you a million dollar inheritance if you would drive twenty bucks (as in deer) across Alaska, would you do it? (I know it sounds weird, stems from a game of Balderdash.)
I probably couldn’t do it, but if there wasn’t any penalty for losing the bucks, I’d try. ;)
What genre of books do you like best to read?
Do you prefer movies or TV shows?
Movies. I like their complete story arc, cinematography, and closure. Miniseries (like Pride and Prejudice and Cranford) fit the bill, too.

The Eleven Questions:
I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to make up new questions or re-post the ones I answered, so I did a mixture of both. 

What is your favorite thing to blog about?
Who is your favorite fictional character?
What is your favorite color and why?
If you could visit one place on earth, and only one, where would you choose?
What’s one movie coming out in 2016 you want to watch?
Would you rather time travel to the past or the future? Why?
What’s a Bible verse that’s meant a lot to you lately?
What is your favorite classic book (written before say, 1920)?
What is your favorite place you’ve ever been?
What genre of books do you like best to read?
Do you prefer movies or TV shows?
Feel free to answer the questions in the comments, too, if you don’t have a blog or don’t want to post them. How many of the things I talked about can you identify with?


  1. Thanks for doing this, Kelsey! I loved your answers!

    We have a lot of things in common (more than you mentioned on my blog). Here's a few: My favorite color is blue, one of my favorite animals is the dolphin (along with cat and wolf), we both have red hair, classical music is definitely one of my favorite genres, I usually like editing though not always, I also enjoy proofreading for others, and
    I'm a lot like Elinor Dashwood as well.

    1. Thank you for stopping by with your comment, Faith! I loved your answers and questions, too. :)

      That's neat we have so many things in common! Even liking dolphins and being like Elinor Dashwood. Do you get her in the Jane Austen personality quizzes like I do?
