What is the Black Cat Blue Sea Award?
“This award is for bloggers who strive to write for everybody, and no matter how many viewers they get, make an impact on a reader. This award is an expression of gratitude to the nominee. It should be awarded to anybody that you choose deserves it and it doesn’t mean that they must have hundreds of followers and likes.”
Thank you for nominating me, Mysterious Scribbler.
My answers to her three questions:
1. Which is your favorite book(s) and why?
My favorite book is Armor by John Steakley. The reasons why are because it is the only book that has made me cry, I liked all of the characters for a number of reasons, the book is in my favorite genre — science fiction — and though it is about super-soldiers fighting aliens, the story is ultimately not about action: It’s about the psychological effects that war has on soldiers and civilians. The title — Armor — is not just a reference to the physical armor the soldiers wear, it’s a reference to the mental armor soldiers and civilians wear, too.
2. Why did you join WordPress?
One day I was feeling depressed. The reason why is because I was failing two of my college classes and, more and more, was realizing that college wasn’t the right place for me. I needed to write down what I was feeling and thinking. I needed a place to express myself. I called up my cousin to talk about the struggles I was having, and he suggested that I start a blog on WordPress.
3. Which is your favorite band/singer?
My favorite band is Death Cab for Cutie.
