Dragon's Loyalty Award

Here's something different! :) I've been nominated for the Dragon's Loyalty Award by my good friend and pen pal ShelbyFromThTwp - mucho thanks for the nomination, Shelby!

The Rules
1. Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and a link back.
3. You must share 7 things other bloggers may not know about you.
4. Nominate up to 15 bloggers for the Dragon's Loyalty Award.
5. Copy and paste the award somewhere on your blog.

7 Random Facts About Me
1. I am terrified of skunks. I'm not joking, if I have anything close to a pathological fear, it would be of skunks. We get skunks regularly wandering through out back yard during the fall, and both my dad and our dog has been sprayed by them, and for whatever reason I am just plain terrified of the same thing happening to me. Whenever I go outside around that time of year, I can't take one step out the door without doing a sniff check to make sure none of the buggers are anywhere nearby.

2. One of my biggest pet peeves is seeing people hitting the handicap button to open the door for them when they are not themselves handicapped or injured and also do not have their hands so full of stuff that they would have struggled to get the door open on their own. They are just lazy and use the button instead of the small amount of upper body strength it would take to open the door. It's always something people did at my university to get into the library and it's always bothered me.

3. For whatever reason, I still like it when I come home to visit for a weekend and my mom calls me "Babydoll" - I'm almost 23 years-old, don't ask me why this is the case, but nevertheless it always earns a secret smile from me.

4. The very first manga series I ever picked up was Gundam SEED Destiny.

5. I have recently come up with a new name for myself for when I'm at events or just in social situations in general and would rather retreat behind my phone than attempt to speak to anybody I don't already know, and that is calling myself an Awkward Turtle :P

6. I am actually shamefully lacking in nerd cred, which a lot of people don't know about me. I'm very into a lot of the smaller stuff and obsessed with a few cult followings, but along the way I missed out on many of the big things. Star Wars, Star Trek, Firefly, Lord of the Rings, most of the Marvel movies - the list goes on and on. I do intend on remedying this at some point in the future, because the shame of the ignorance is damn-near paralyzing XD

7. I'm thinking that even though I live in Canada, much like the tragedies of John Lennon's assassination and 9/11, people I know will remember where they were when they learned about something amazing, that being the Supreme Court ruling in the states legalizing gay marriage. I think that sense of remembering where you were and what you were doing years from now applies to the good things as well as the bad things. #LoveWins #AllyForLife!

Let me know if any of my random facts were particularly surprising in the comments below!
