#AskSelfKnown | Q&A Answers

Hello hello hello! Today is such a lovely day, isn't it? A little cold and gray, but that's to expect. ;) As you probably know the deadline for my Q&A session was the 19th. I received 17 wonderful questions I can't wait to answer. So let's get right to it. Enjoy. <3

+ + +


What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Anything that has chocolate, peanut butter, or some type of cookie/candy in it - ehh, let's just go with all flavors as my favorite. ;)

What are some of your favorite blogs?

To name a few:

+ Hidden
+ Fifth out of Ten
+ Clover and Dot
+ Eve of Womanhood
+ this flawless blog

And more. :)

How many pets do you own? / Do you have any pets?

One. Well, technically two. My older sister moved in with us, and she has a dog named Breyers (yes, she's named after ice cream). Other than that there's out family pet, Monkey (yes, we have a dog named Monkey). They're both girls, so things can get a little catty around here (haha).

Why did you start blogging?

I was greatly inspired by Liz from American Girl Fan. I loved how she had this giant community that was keen on hearing her opinion. And I felt like I could accomplish the same as well.


Do you play any instruments?

I used to play piano, and am currently learning how to play guitar. :)

Any tips on blogging?

Don't be afraid to follow other blogs and comment on what other's have to say. Make your opinion known in a nice, polite manner. Ask a friendly question and who knows, a relationship may spur from your outreach. :)


Who is your hero?

On this earth? My best friend. Out of this world? God.

What is your favorite book to read?

All. Of. Them. #BookEquality

What was the last movie you went to? What did you think?

I went to see Jupiter Ascending on Valentine's day. I thought it was wonderful - especially since it was in 3D. The plot was pretty wacky and I could hardly understand what the actors were saying (okay, since when did it get cool to mumble everything with wide eyes and a dramatically tilted had?), but I had a great time. :)

Who is your favorite author?

UGH, this question. It's so hard. >.< Okay, well, my original favorite author was Suzanne Collins (back when I read the Hunger Games trilogy), but now that's expanded to Veronica Roth, John Green, Andrew Fukuda, Virginia Bergin, Rainbow Rowell, SARK, Stephenie Meyer and much much much much more...


Have you ever been to any music festivals?

Nope, but I'd love to go to one sometime, just to have the experience. :)


What do you tell a friend who bashes herself daily, and calls herself fat (which she isn't skinny but she isn't fat) and anything nice you tell her she tells you that you're just being nice?

Tell her about God and His unconditional lover for her - or if you're not comfortable with that, guide her on the path to self-love. Help her take the first step. :)

What is your favorite song off of Four?

ALL OF THEM. I love that whole album (which is rare - even with One Direction music).

What's a quote that's inspired you lately?

What's something that makes you smile?

When other people smile or laugh. :)

Happy Tuesday.

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…


Have you ever had that one thing you've tried to make work but never could? This could be anything in your personal life, from piano notes to paragraphs in a blog post.

Well, I've been trying and trying and trying and trying for years now to get blogging to work for me. At one point in my life, this was my passion. I lived for your comments, your friendship, and the purity of sharing whatever was in my heart with the world. But I don't feel warmth or connection anymore. In fact, I feel rather lost. Like I'm shouting into an abyss, vying for attention and something to fill my inner void. This feeling comes more often than I care to admit, and I've pushed through all this time with the thought that it will get better. That all I have to do is keep trying and it will work out.

But it hasn't. And I'm out of ideas.

This isn't to say I won't be back. That I won't hit a creative stride in the next week and decide to share something epic with you. But f…

Angel by the Wings (Piano Cover)

Many months ago I fell in love with this song. And like anyone who has fallen in love, it's stuck with me -- to the point where I can now play it with my eyes closed.
I think I love it so much because the lyrics go like:
"You can, you can do anything, anything
You can do anything"
Over and over. In these past few months, I've needed those power phrases on repeat.

Thank you, dear music, for being the inspirational piece to get me back into taking piano lessons. Thank you for inspiring me to learn other pieces (and yet always return to you).
It scares me to share this with you because it is imperfect, our piano needs tuned, it's not visually stimulating, or even a good quality soundtrack. But I think I would be doing myself an injustice if I didn't.
Besides, everyone has to start somewhere.
