An open letter about Kate.

Hello blog, me again (gasp.. So soon?) 

Yes I am back and I have a small problem I need to deal with so I am going to naturally write about it. 

My birth-given name is Alicia Adrianne Mooers

I want to add to my name and be Katherine (Kate) Alicia Adrianne Mooers.

Ever since I was about 10; I have not liked my name. I did not know one could change their name if they so choose. 

It all started a couple weeks ago; I was driving up to the lavender festival with my mum, nana and cousin Jess. We somehow got on the subject of our names and I brought about the fact that I did not like my first name. I mean, I don’t think anybody loves their parent-given name sometimes but I don’t know I have just always loved the name Kate. 

After I told my car-compodres about this; they proceeded to say “you know you can change it legally now that you are 18 right” and such.. I thought about it but then just kind of pushed it to the back of my mind 

I don’t know this is kind of a rambly post but I just want input personally. 

– Kate

Liebster Award

 

liebster-award-nomination


 

Yes, you read the title correctly. It does say “Liebster Award” in big, beautiful letters. Let me fill you in. 

So as you know this blog is a sometimes-funny-but-mostly-sad little corner of the internet where I complain about my life. Also, there is the occasional fictional tidbit. I also have the belief that nobody actually reads it. I am led to think that there is only one person who reads this sad excuse for a blog; and that is thegalacianlad. His stuff is also pretty darn funny (if i do says so myself) and you should go check it out! He (thegalacianlad) has nominated me for an award (The Liebster Award) of which i did not know existed to be honest. But boy am I glad it does!

Now before I start writing random things, I should explain the RULES to accepting a nomination for this award, and therefore entering yourself in this contest.

I don’t particularly like the format of the list and it doesn’t match my blog’s aesthetic.

***Slaughter me now. I have become a white girl who says things like aesthetic. ***

The Official Rules of The Liebster Award

If you have been nominated for The Liebster Award and you choose to ACCEPT IT, write a blog post about the Liebster award in which you:

  1. thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.
  2. display the award on your blog by either including it in your post and/or

fuck this

i’m just going to mess with my aesthetic

liebster-award-rules

too lazy to type.

3. What is love? — Baby Don’t Hurt Me, don’t hurt me no more

11 random facts about myself.

  • I am a redhead who is 18 years old and lives in Ontario, Canada.
  • I probably have commitment issues
  • my family is effing insane, so insane sometimes that I wish they weren’t mine like when they threaten to take away your new kitten all over a $40 407 ETR charge from 6 months ago.
  • I suck at being punctual
  • I love words
  • I have trouble looking people in the eyes (trust and intimacy issues)
  • my first ex-boyfriend is now my best friend.
  • If you asked me 2 years ago where I would be now, it would not be anything close to where I am.
  • I used to sit in “the pee corner” at recess in elementary school because nobody would play with me.
  • My favorite toe is my pinky toe. It curls inwards and under my foot and I find it adorable. I also identify with it’s shyness.

Nominations

*** hello there reader, It’s me Alicia and as I am trying to find people to nominate for this award I am having some serious blog envy because everyone is so darn witty. I look at my sad excuse for a blog and it looks quite shit. I am a horrid blogger, and there are some really awesome ones out there.***

***also, I am going to make a couple of horribly structured sentences to explain why I nominated these 5 people.***

  1. Tangental Thoughts — This one is my ex boyfriend’s girlfriend’s blog. The only reason I know about it is because she stuck her nose where it didn’t belong and made me feel like shit quite frankly. So you may be asking why I am nominating her for this award. Well I think that anybody who has enough courage to start a blog deserves to be known. Also, Rowan you are still an asshole 🙂
  2. Hello Beautiful Book Blog — I always appreciate a good book blog and this one is not only good writing but it is beautiful.
  3. The Vocal Wallflower — To be honest this title gives me chills down my word-obsessed spine.
  4. Fence Post Diaries — I like this whole blog, the titles are candy, I like the overall look and this writer is some serious writing style goals.
  5. Discombobulated — Perfection.

New questions made by moi (Red98) for the nominees

  1. Favorite Toe
  2. Mushrooms — Yay or Nay?
  3. Do you judge people?
  4. How many clocks are in your place of residence?
  5. Parlez-Vous Français?
  6. Scars — How many and where?
  7. Why do you write?
  8. Favourite line from a book you’ve read?
  9. What is beauty to you?
  10. Would you consider eating a cricket covered in chocolate?
  11. {…}?

Thank you for reading and hopefully you enjoyed this post. It is one of the most formal things I have ever written so appreciate it.

DEATH TO POINT.PROOF.EXPLANATION PARAGRAPHS.

Ok bye.

Exciting Times in Liciland

Hello, it’s been a while I know but I’ve just given up apologizing at this point. 

I’m back, and I feel like catching up.

A lot has happened and a lot is about to happen.

1) I am getting a kitten of my own. Her name is bean, because she looks like a bean right now as she was just born today at 11 am. Also, when my cousin (who I am getting bean from) her name is Jessie and when she was little we used to call her Jessie Jessie Jellybean. So, Bean:


2) I am graduating high school in June. I cannot wait and I’m so done with everything about high school I don’t even know how to explain it. 

3) I’ve been talking to a really cute guy I met on Tinder. Do not judge me its 2016 people.

4) I am trying to move out of my (divorced) parents houses. I know I’m young but I think I can do it. I have always been very independent and hard working so I’ll be fine. 

5) BEAN

6) I bought a plant. 

That’s about it… I’m not very interesting I’ll try and get something more interesting up on here in the next week. 

If you want to see where I’ve been writing for the past 2 weeks, head over to my secondary ISU school assignment blog, The Magnificent Gatsby.

Anyway, that’s about it 🙂 

Byeee
