Hello my lovely Readership, it’s me, Owlivia! Actually, this post will consist of both me and another blogger. You may or may not know her, she comes from Thoughts from a Christian Cowgirl, she is Daleenc.
You see, the two of us met over word press when she found a random post of mine (I forget which one that was) and she suggested we guest post on each others blogs. So, long story short, this interview is an intro for Daleenc on untainted and Odd. Be sure to check out her blog! For this post, my questions will be bolded, and her answers will be unbolded.
1. What inspired you to start a blog?
I wanted to connect to the world and share my life with more people. A blog seemed to be the easiest way to do it. And plus, my best friend was doing it. What better reason is there than that? 🙂
2. What is the story behind your username?
Well, sorry to disappoint you all, but there’s no story. Nothing. Nada. Nope.
3. What is your very best memory?
Umm… The day grandpa and I brought Coaly Grey back from J.W’s. It was three hours down there filled with hopeful anticipation and three hours back with excited dreaming and the amazing realization one of my biggest and longest dreams.
4. If you had a theme party, what would the theme be and what kinds of things would you have there?
Dude. Umm. Well. I’ve never had a theme party and I’ve never been to one. Have I mentioned that I’m terrible at planning? I guess I would have it to be a theme about…umm….Compassion International and maybe it’d see if I could get a Compassion guest speaker but then again I’m not sure that if have enough friends for them to bother…. I sponsor two children through Compassion and love it. 🙂
5. What had been your greatest success?
Oh my. Greatest success? I really don’t know. I’m very goal oriented. I love the success when it happens but after that, it’s hard for me to remember. So enie meanie minie moe…..I’ll say when I finished my book, Out of the Shadows. I didn’t stop grinning for days.
6. Do you want to change the world? If so, how?
Yes! Yes!! Yes, yes, yes, YES!!!!!!!!!!! How? By donating money to Compassion, by voting right (when I finally turn eighteen), by fostering kids, by adopting, by being a friend, by smiling.
7. Do you think it’s still good even if you only change the world of one person?
I think that depends…a lot. Do I change one person’s world and then quit because ‘I’ve fulfilled my destiny’? No. That’s not good. Not at all. But do I try to help more? Try to help more people? But for some reason I only change one? Sure. That’s fine. Perfectly.
8. What’s your favorite thing to learn about?
Weird and wacky facts. 🙂 Or whatever I’ve just got a sudden wacky obsession about. 🙂 Like right now, I’m stuck on learning about Alexander the Great’s battle tactics (which I keep saying because I am, I just haven’t made it to the library yet to actually get any books…) and World War 2 woman heroes. Noor Inyat Khan and such. 🙂
9. What are the names of a few of your favorite toys as a kid?
Probably my most prized possession that I had (and still have…somewhere) was my Build-A-Bear named Carly after one of my cousins/Aunts/something like that who had breast cancer (she survived). I dressed Carly up as a, yup, cowgirl. And then there is my Pinto horse and cowboy from Schleich. The horse is Oklahoma, cuz I thought that would be just an awesome name for a horse. He was the start of my model horse collection.
10. What are the names of some of the toys you have now..(I know you have a few)
I already named them!!! 😀 Carly and Oklahoma.
11. What is your favorite fairy tale?
I’m not really into fairy tales…but I’d have to say Arabian Nights. 🙂 Because I can’t pick just one. So Arabian Nights.
12. What is your favorite story that is not a fairy tale?
Oh shoot. Robin Hood for starts. Is that a fairy tale? I don’t know. Call of the Wild and White Fang. Little House on the Prairie. Home Before Morning and I Met God in Soviet Russia are pretty good too. I also like The Histories by Herodotus and Women Heroes of World War 1 and Women Heroes of World War 2 by Kathryn J. Atwood. I like 39 Clues (I know, I know, a kid book), and Hunger Games, but Divergent had too much romance in it for me. I’m not a romance person. The Black Stallion is awesome, and I love Buck. It’s about this boy and his sheep…and it’s pretty cool. Ben-Hur and The Bronze Bow. The Taming of Cheetah. Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. The Walk Across America. I could go on naming books for ever. 🙂
I.Will. Never. Have. One. Favorite. 😉
13. What are your favorite words?
Dude. Seriously? JK!!!! (I have a really bad habit of teasing my friends over iMessages.) To make a short story longer. Who, me?
14. Do you like Disney? What is your favorite Disney movie? (This is obviously an important question)
I’m not the biggest fan of Disney, no. But now that they’ve bought Star Wars….well, I’m just hoping that they don’t mess up this new one and that it will actually be good. And that it won’t be full of junk I don’t want to see and my fingers are crossed. All my fingers are crossed. Tightly.
its kida hard to rype like thid. kids, dint try this ay hoem.
15. How did you meet your best friend?
I actually have several BFs. I’m seriously, seriously thinking about trying to change from BF to VSF (Very Special Friend). Not that BF is bad, but I have several people that I am very close to and BF sounds like it’s only one…
So I’ll tell you about all three of them (if you don’t mind) because they’re all the best people you could ever meet.
So for my first VSF, L.:
This is complicated. Really complicated. Like it was a miracle and we were destined by God to be friends.
So. My mom’s sister met my VSF’s mom’s sister. Mom’s sister introduced Mom to C. and then C. introduced Mom to C.’s mom. C.’s mom, A., then introduced Mom to my VSF’s mom, K. A. then started tell me (I was like three or four) about K.’s daughter, L., who was my age. But L. lived in Spain, where her parents where missionaries. So we exchanged letters. 🙂 I still have one. And finally, they moved back and we just hit it off together. We have opposite personalities and even out each other’s ruff edges perfectly. I’m trying to remember a time when I didn’t know her and she’s two months older than I am…So yeah. That’s how I met L.
Then there is P. Well, her real name is A., but she’s been called P. for as long as I can remember. P. came over with her dad one day to deliver wood. She’s five years older than me, so I don’t remember this at all, but according to her, we started playing doctor. I was the doctor and she was the patient…and yeah. But Grandpa kept having her over to help us on the farm in exchange for riding lessons and I would go riding with her. Before you knew it, she had her own horses and I was going over there. She has a job and is busy a lot, but we’re always talking together via iMessages. We’ve been VSF’s for as long as I can remember.
And then there’s J. Just because she’s last doesn’t mean a thing. I’ve actually known her less than any other VSFs but we hang out the most together. Mostly because she’s five minutes away from my house horseback (which is why I don’t get to see L. that much) and she doesn’t work (unlike P.) and so we can call up and say, ‘I’m going riding in 30 mins, you wanna come?’ And she’ll say ‘yup’ and we’ll go spend the afternoon together on our horses. But I met her through her older sister, P. One day, P. came over to ride and brought J. We just hit it off and continued to be VSF’s for forever. 🙂 J. is just one year older than me, so actually, I’m the youngest of all of my friends. But that doesn’t matter.
So now you all now everything about me!!! Thanks to you, Owlivia, for giving me this opportunity!!! I really appreciate it!!
