Dare to Learn...

...more things about me. (Hehehe, that didn't make a lot of sense, did it? ;-) My dear friend Awel is have a lovely blog party at her beautiful blog inspired designs (such a pretty name ;-). The prizes are amazing, and the questions are fun, so could I resist entering? Nope. Of course not. You should all go enter - seriously, the prizes are fantabulous.

1) What's your all time favorite blog/blogger?

Don't pull that one on me - I have so many. I'll give you top three, is that fair? 1. Lynnette's Dancing Barefoot 2. Ab's Rear Window and 3. Hannah's Aspire.

2) How do you personally define forgiveness?

Forgiveness? It is when someone wrongs you in a deep way, and it hurts - and you go from hating them to actually loving them. That act of relinquishing your heartache, forgetting the deep wrong, and becoming willing to start over with that person - that is forgiveness.

3) What object of your possession has the most sentimental value in your eyes?

My pair of headphones - it symbolizes new life, new faith, and new love.

4) What song do you consider your personal theme song?

I have many theme songs with many of my different friends. Give Me Your Eyes by Brandon Heath is Hannah and me's "song", while Lucy by Skillet is Jenna and me's "song". (I have a feeling I made a few grammar mistakes in the last sentence. Hm.)

5) Do the opinions of others about you really matter to you?

It depends on who those "others" are. If they're like one of my best friends, than yeah, that person's opinion matters.

6) Do you ever make up words?

Are you kidding me? Yes. I do. I also mispronounce SO many words. My friends still tease about when, a few years back, I pronounced ignorant "ig-NOR-ant."

7) Off the top of your head, do you know what your middle name means? (You can look it up though! :)

Nope. My name, Rebekah, means captivating. I looked up what "Grace" means...well, read it for yourself.

The name Grace is a word that is used to depict Man's relationship with God (God's grace) in the form of blessings and favors as also the physical aspect of beauty seen in one's manner and bearing. The Latin word gratia means favor and as such the name may be considered to be of Latin origin. The variants of the name are Gracey, Gracy, Gracia and Gratia.

I guess that explains it then.

8) What's is something that never fails to make you smile?

My little brother. :-)

9) What person has touched your heart the most?

Oh. Man. My momma, I guess. Does God count? Hehe. Just had to ask.

10) Give a scene in a book where you really understood what the author was trying to convey.

Uh...mindblank.

11) What do you think of HTML? Is it the ENEMY or your friend?

Friend. Definitely. Don't know where I would be without it.

12) What person comments the most consistently on your blog?

I don't like picking favorites, but Memzie at The Rebuilder does the most. I love you, Memzie! :-)

13) Who is your personal hero/heroine (fiction or real, or both)? Why?

My fiction heroine is Emily of New Moon - she is just so crazy awesome, and is exactly like me in so many ways. And then my real-life (haha, like book characters aren't real-life) heroine is my momma. Of course.

14) Are you curious or are you satisfied knowing that "that's just the way it is"?

You give me "that's just the way it is" and I will drive myself crazy wondering about it for the rest of my life.

15)List the your top 5 favorite songs. Do they have anything in common? Why do you love them?

1. Lead Me by Sanctus Real. ('cause I just love it. Makes me get all teary-eyed) 2. Lucy by Skillet. ('cause it's me and Jenna's song. And it's so SAD!) 3. Tears Fall by BarlowGirl. (it makes me feel so sad about abortion )-: ) 4. Superman by Five For Fighting. (SO sad and beautiful. And it's in the perfect key so I can sing it at the top of my lungs.) 5. Empty Chairs at Empty Tables in Les Miserables (again, it's so sad, and low enough that I can sing it really loud without having to go into falsetto). Ha, I guess I must like sad songs.

16) Do you ever get into arguments with...your characters? (that's if you write a book :). And if you don't write, do you think you would?

Um, yeah. All the time. I sometimes hate my characters.

17) While reading a book or watching a movie, were you ever blown away by an unexpected plot twist? What was it and how did you react?

Yes. Yes. Yes. Harry Potter. Harry Potter. Harry Potter. Oh, and Beyond the Summerland by a somebody Graham. I threw the book across the room 'cause I was so ticked.

18) What's your personal opinion of i-designs? (orignal, I know, but I really want to know! :)

Bee-yoo-ti-ful.

19) What's your favourite color combinations?

Teal, teal and more teal.

20) What's your favourite comic book series?

I haven't read comic books since second grade.

21) What is the oldest book you've read? How old was it? (By old, I mean, like antique books...the manuscript doesn't have to be old, just the copy of it. :)

It is Girls Who Became Writers and it was like, early 1900s? I think?

22) What character in any movie or book, would you say is the MOST like you?

Emily of New Moon.

23) If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Not a very nice question, but I would change the fact that I'm so gullible. It's annoying. My friend once told me that if you "poke" someone on Facebook, the system alerts an employee, who actually runs to the person and POKES him/her. And I believed her.

24) As a child, what was one thing that always frightened you? This could be something real or imagined! :)

The dark. I used to be so scared of the dark.

25) What's your life motto?

Job 8:21, I guess. (Go look it up, hehe)

26) As you're sitting in café, you're given a note: "It's in your best interests to meet me at 7 P.M. tonight, alone, at Pine and 4th." How would you react?

I would go to Pine and 4th, totally!

27) Name seven of your favourite books.

The seven Harry Potter books. I'm a die-hard Harry Potter fan. (I'm married to Ron, by the way. Just so you all know.) :-)

28) Name your absolutle favorite font (you can have more than one though)!

Oh, that's tough. I like SO many. Okay, I'll through a few out there. Usenet, Geosans Light, Roman Fatal Serif, Century Gothic, Miama Script, and any Pea font.

29) Have you ever cried over...a book or a movie?

Are you kidding me? Yes, yes, yes.

30) What's something that's brought you so much comfort?

My Bible. Sounds kind of sappy, but it's true.

31) Describe what you would call a perfect moment.

Experiencing the flash.

32) What's the fastest you've ever read?

Oh I don't know. Look for my name in the Guiness Book of World Records. (hehe, just kidding, I don't read that fast)

33) What's your favorite book/movie genre?

I can't stand mystery. I like romance, fantasy, and anything that's slightly spooky.

34) Do you say one word a lot just because of the way it sounds? If so, what's the word?

Phlegm. Haha. PHLEGM!

35) What's something you thought you'd hate, but ended up loving?

Running, I guess. :-)

36)Do you prefer British or American spellings of words (ex: the British favourite to the American favorite)

American, of course.

37) List a few of your favourite names.

Brittany, Luke, Emily, Joanna and Nicholas.

38) What is your favourite movie?

The Matrix. :-)

39) Imagine you're writing a story, and one of your characters keeps something buried in a box where no one will find it. What's in the box and what's its significance?

The box holds all the secrets of the world, and the character is trying to keep it hidden so the "bad guys" can't find it. The box is found, the character is terrible at digging.

40) Was this boring? (be honest! :)

Oh yes, it was terrible. I'm kidding, obviously. It was a blast. :-)
