liebster blog award

I was nominated for the Liebster award by Amaranthis_Paradisus, and I’m happy to share answers with the questions they provided below.

1)What is your fondest memory?

There’s too many good ones to choose, but one of my fondest is a night I spent walking around my town and the neighboring city.  I was with a friend, and we just meandered for miles.  The only thing that made this different than any other day was that we left at 5 pm, and got back at 7 am.

2)What led you to blogging?

Desire to spread poetry, build Nostrovia! Poetry, self-publish, and defeat the negative stereotypes associated with poetry.

3) What do you think is your biggest accomplishment?

Nostrovia! Poetry

4)Do you remember your dreams when you wake up?

Off and on.  I’ve been experimenting with lucid dreaming lately.

5)Are you allergic to anything? If so, then what?

A type of obscure medicine I don’t remember the name of.

6)What’s your favorite name?

I’m going to say Michaela.  Or Ash Ketchem.  His name is “slick”, and a great marketing ploy.  

7)Who inspires you?

The poets of Slam Free or Die, Allen Ginsberg, and my environment / social circles.

8)What’s the meaning behind your name?


(c.650 –c.585 bc) A Hebrew prophet. The biblical Lamentations are ascribed to him.
A book of the Bible containing his prophecies.

9) What is your biggest pet peeve?

People who call poetry “a cute hobby”.  That, and disregard for others.

10) Are you enjoying life right now?

I’d say so.

11) What’s your favorite quote?

“I fell asleep to the city on fire, awoke to one intact.” – Pat The Bunny, Ramshackle Glory
