Liebster Award


I am really surprised that ‘firstly’ is a word.





Now I’m going to stop with the caps lock cuz my eyeballs are in pain.

I know you guys spend all your waking, breathing moments waiting for this originally titled, absolutely fantastic blog to update (*continues speech to said imaginary friends*).

So I’m so sorry it’s been taking me so long to finally post, and I know that this is hardly an excuse, but I’ve been pretty busy these last…

*checks time stamp of last post* *whips out handy-dandy calculator*

…like, 8 months…or something.

But then


*dramatic gasp*


why is this picture so humongous. why can’t I make it smaller. help. heeeeelp.

Thank you so much Kerys for nominating me for this tag! Her blog is called The Everlasting Library, so if you want to see the absolute awesomeness of her blog and her answers for this award, you can check her out here – you won’t regret it!

(The links are everywhere. You can run but you cannot hide. Trust me. My sister has trained me in the masterful art of Hide ‘n Seek. FEAR ME.)

Thanks again for all those who have supported me through my hiatis hyatus hooyaytoos hiatus. I really appreciate all the love, encouragement, and Shawn Mendes 2019 Tour front-row seating and backstage passes you have graciously given me.

I mean, we’re still working on that last one, but that’s okay. We’re getting there.

What Makes the Great And Powerful Amalee Passionate About Le Art of Blogging:


Well, as you all know, I am a very passionate and dedicated blogger known for my extreme commitment and responsibility.

See the source image

But, how, may you ask?

I think my passion for and love of blogging is mostly due to the global influence I can have. Even though I only have a couple followers, when I see the little statistic thingie that rEvEaLs where readers live

it’s amazing to see just how widespread my weird posts actually are! And it’s because of these people and the amazing thought that there are some I don’t even know who live in countries I’ve never even heard of that set aside time to well, honestly, probably criticize read my blog that I’ve come back to blogging and shall continue to post regularly (YES. I WILL. YES, AMALEE.)

SO thank you all so much for inspiring me.


10 Random Facts About Myself:

Uno: I cannot speak Spanish. The only language I am fluent in, and know more than ‘hello’ and ‘one’ and ‘where is the bathroom’ in is English. (¿dónde está el baño?) (mwahaha, I told you I was a genius). 

And it’s kind of surprising that I know even that much in English, as proven by the fact that it took me about 10 minutes, give or take an hour or so (heh heh…heh) to learn how to pronounce – and spell – ‘hiatus’.

Two: My favorite word is ‘squishy’.

See the source image

Three: If I could own just one pet – and any pet – I would own an ant. I just think it would be funny for those icebreaker things teachers make you do at the beginning of the year. It would just be like:

Hi, my name is Bob, and I have a pet dog named Rover.

Hi, my name is Bobette, and I have a pet cat named Cat.

Hi, my name is Amalee, and I have a pet ant named Arthur Charles Richardson the Third.

Sidenote: Please do not name your cat ‘Cat’. This was legit how I named all my stuffed animals when I was a kid. Thankfully, I have learned my lesson since and decided not to recommend my baby sister’s name to be ‘Child’.

Four: My favorite dessert is brownies. Never blondies, just brownies.

Five: I’m #TeamTwilightWasHorriblyWritten

Six: I was just cast as my first lead role in a musical, like, two days ago and I’ve been acting since I was five. That’s a lot of years of playing the part of Tree #7, let me tell you.

Seven: My number one pet peeve is when I’m obviously reading a book or something, and someone walks up to me and is like “yo, dude, what’re you doing?” Like, oh, yes, genius, you caught me – I’m pretending I’m sitting in class reading, when I’m actually using this magical book from the magical planet called Sweet Patch Adults to turn every Earthling into a magical unicorn-like species called the Swunicorn. I applaud your amazing detective skills.


And then this is usually the part where they run away.

Eight: My favorite movie to date would probably have to be Jumanji: Return to the Jungle. If you haven’t seen it, I totally recommend it.

Nine: My first role in a musical was ‘Old Man With Beard’. As you can tell, it was a starring role.

Ten: Some of my little sister’s TV shows…might…be………bearable.


Alright, onto the questions!

  1. If all the books in the world were stolen, which would you not miss at all?

Hmmm…I’d have to say Twilight and the Hunger Games.

Don’t attack me. Please.

  1. Would you rather have 1 meal you like for the rest of your life, or different meals you don’t like?

Probably different meals. Cuz if you stuck with one meal you like, after awhile you’d get so tired of it, you’d actually find yourself praying for, like, artichokes after about a week instead. And you know I only pull the artichoke card when I’m desperate.

  1. What’s the weirdest thing you ever did?

Alright, so, you know how I kind of like Shawn Mendes a little bit? So my dad got me a life-size cardboard cut out of him to keep in my room as a joke (I’m not this creepy all the time, I swear).

One problem with that. Sure, half of the time I was just ogling him creepily, all like

But when it’s like eleven o’clock p.m., it’s a little difficult to fall asleep when some life-sized, immobile man-poster with a perma-smile is staring at you ALL. NIGHT. LONG.

So, instead, my friend and I moved him so that he was standing in front of the window of my room where he could creep out all the lucky passerbys who just so happened to look up while taking their cute little dogs out on a midnight stroll.

Let’s just say that we got into some very interesting conversations with the neighbors that day.


  1. Are you in your bed right now? Where do you usually write posts?

You have uncovered my secrets.






Uh, yeah I actually am in bed right now.



However, I usually do my posts in our house’s dining room, cuz it’s all aesthetic-y, and calm-y, and comfortable-y.

ahem. yeah.


Which bogger(S) do you think are the awesomest and your favourite?

Why, Kerys is of course!

Honestly, I know this is super cliche and boring and stuff, but I honestly don’t have a favorite blo-

Bob the Builder is always relevant.




Because I don’t have any friends cannot choose just 5-11 blogs to tag, YOU – the fantabulous person who was amazing enough to read this – can do this tag!

I’ll start off with a few awesome blogs though:

~Rose from A Purpose of Winged Dogs

~Emmalyn from lostinbetweenworlds

~Rayan from The Site of a Confused Teen

You absolutely do not have to do this tag, but it would be fun to hear some of your answers.


Here are my questions:

1: If you could be any character, who would you be and why?

2: Favorite dessert? (the struggle is real, I know)

3: If you could tell the entire world one thing in one paragraph, what would you say?

4: Write a short poem about how you’re feeling right now

5: Laws are no longer enforced. What’s the first thing you do?



Thanks again for the nomination, and I hope you all had as much fun reading this as I did making it.

p.s. If you’re wondering where Shawn Mendes Cut-Out is now, he’s shoved in the corner of my basement in the shadows behind a bunch of dust-coated, unused exercise equipment – you know, where normal people shove their no longer wanted, life-size, cardboard celebrity crushes.

  1. Do you know what I find even weirder than naming your cat Cat? (although I can relate about the stuffed animals… We have a stuffed dog named Pup, and a baby doll named Babe…) Naming your dog Kitty. Or Tiger. Or any other animal name… And yet somehow I know people with dogs named both Tiger and Kitty… And just why?

    And yeah… I can’t say I’d miss Twilight or The Hunger Games either… I’ve never actually read Twilight, but I have no interest, so. And The Hunger Games… Was just SO overrated. I didn’t think it was a BAD book exactly, I just… Didn’t really care. At all.

  2. You are back!!!😀*I shake you firmly by the hand* I giggled quite a bit at this post. I reckon that Shawn Mendes’ cut out must be gorgeous !
    Thanks for nominating me! 😊

  3. Firtsly, firstly definitely doesn’t sound like it should be a real word lol. Also, while I too believe in #TeamTwilightWasHorriblyWritten, the thirteen year old inside of me will forever be #TeamEdward and nothing and no one will ever change that! And ‘Old Man With Beard’ was better than me. My first role in a high school play was “Narrator #3”. Basically, the story had a bunch of narrators that would casually come on and off stage and deliver a single line of dialogue to set the scene. That said, you can bet that I totally rocked my thirty seconds of fame on stage every night. And worry not! I shall be thy friend!! I look forward to more of your posts!
    That was a really long comment. Sorry 😬

    1. Firstly, #FirstlyShouldBeBanned2018 😂 And, no worries, most of my comments are like three pages long – YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
      And, yes…maybe I’m a leeetle bit #TeamEdward…
      Anyways, I’m sure you were the best as Narrator #3! Us starring actors must stick together 😂
      Thanks for reading and commenting! (See, I warned you about the 3 pages thing…)

  4. Haha!!! I’m actually supposed to be getting ready for school so laughing out loud isn’t the best idea. Thanks a lot Amalee. I’m so sorry I broke your streak 😐

    OMG squishy is so cute and I love Dory so much aghhh. Also thanks for the inspo. I’m going to name my Pygmy hippo Pygmy. BROWNIES ARE LIFE. And Jumanjii was so goood??? Congrats on the role in the musical! That’s really exciting!

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOPOOOOOOOO YOU CANNOT NOT LIKE THE HUNGER GAMES??? I hereby disown you Amalee. Also artichokes are gross?? And I’m like such a powerful sorcerer. I know you are currently thinking about sour patch kids and Shawn mendes. A life size cutout would be creepy tho. Hahahaha. And bob is always relevant? I’m so glad you’re coming back now!! xx 😂❤️😀

  5. No, thanks SO MUCH for breaking my streak!! My Sundays were literally spent binging on Sour Patch and Shawn Mendes music videos. Please name your Pygmy ‘Pygmy’, the absolute originality and creativity is so beautiful 👏 😂

    Glad to be back! Thanks for reading!
