So, I ran across this little tag from Faith at Stories by Firefly called the Get to Know Me Tag, and I thought I'd give it a go! I'm going to try to keep this one short and sweet today, so let's get right into it...
Name: Eve Estelle (pen name)
Nicknames: Because Eve is just a pen name that I use for this blog, and I'd prefer to keep my real name to myself, none.
Place of Birth: The Buckeye State and Birthplace of Aviation - Ohio, USA. :)
Best Friends: Two amazing girls who lived a few houses down from me when me and my family moved into our current house over 14 years ago (wow! How time flies!). My third best friend would appear in my life not long after that!
Award: Uhh.. Well, I received the President's Award for Educational Excellence upon my exit from 8th grade.
Sport: Oh man.. What was my first sport.. I want to say it was gymnastics. I took a year or two of lessons for that when I was around 5 or 6.
Real Holiday: That depends on what a "real holiday" is.. lol. I'd say whatever holiday it was that first came around in the year I was born!
Concert: I've only been to a couple of concerts - I believe the first was for The Moody Blues.
Film: I'm so putting in more than one answer for most of the questions in this section. It's nearly impossible to pick just one!
I have many, many favorite movies, and I can never remember their titles when I need them. Some of the more recent ones include The Avengers (and most any other Marvel film), Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter, as well as old favorites like Back to The Future, Mary Poppins, The Wizard of Oz...
TV Shows: Same problem as above, but some recent loves are: Doctor Who, Sherlock, Marvel's Agents of Shield, Castle, and, you know what, add Lucifer to the list, too. Still deciding how much I like that one, but it's a fun show so far.
Also, Spongebob. Because. That show will never not make me laugh.
Color: Blueee! (Can I just say how beautiful a blue/silver combo is?)
Song: Some recent favorites:
- Anything by The Beatles
- "Wide Awake" by Katy Perry (also, but to a slightly lesser extent, "Dark Horse")
- "My Immortal," "Going Under," "Bring Me to Life," "Everybody's Fool," and "Good Enough" by Evanescence
- "Space Oddity" and "Life On Mars" by David Bowie
Restaurant: Don't think I have an absolute favorite, but Italian restaurants are always amazing.
Books: The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher (how many times have I put this on my blog now? Oh well. Worth it!).
Feeling: Like it's a bit too sunny outside today, but otherwise fit as a fiddle! (You should have seen the first answer I had for this question.)
Single or Taken: Single and in no hurry to change that.
Eating: Nothing at the moment.
Watching: I loved Faith's answer to this: "I'm watching letters appear on the screen in front me."
Want children: ..Possibly. I do, but it's kind of a frightening thought at the moment.
Want to be married: Yes and no. I do hope to someday be with someone I care enough for to want to marry them, but legal marriage carries with it so many potential problems.
Careers in mind: Absolutely no idea! :)
Where do you want to live: Hm.. I'll end up where I end up, I suppose. I don't have any one place I want to go.
Do You Believe In
God: Yes. I'm Christian, but I'm not devoutly religious, and I don't necessarily follow the Bible's idea of God.
Miracles: For sure! So many amazing things happen without any clear explanation. Maybe they're natural, maybe they're the work of the divine, maybe a bit of both - that I don't know, but I definitely believe in miracles.
Love at first sight: Yeah, but the love at first sight that doesn't necessarily mean, "You're my soul mate."
Ghosts: Yes. ;) Though mostly just for fun. However, I have experienced some very, very odd things before, and if ghosts do indeed exist, there's no way my house isn't haunted.
Aliens: When it comes to things like aliens, the supernatural, or the paranormal (like the questions above, for example), I'm very open minded. Suffice it to say I find it very hard to believe that we're alone in this great big universe of ours.
Soul mates: Mmm, I believe in the definition of a soul mate: "A person ideally suited to another as a close friend or romantic partner; a person perfectly suited to another in temperament; a person with whom one shares the same beliefs and values." That kind of thing.
Heaven: I'm similarly open-minded when it come to religious things, but I do believe in Heaven, yes. :)
Hell: I believe there might be some form of hell, but I'm a tad skeptical of the "fire and brimstone" version.
Kissing on the first date: Nah. If you're gonna do it, make it mean something.
Yourself: Heck yeah! :)
