Get to Know Me!

Get to Know Me!

Note: Thank you guys so much for all of your sweet birthday wishes! You really made my 17th birthday a day to remember. xxx

The wonderful Beyoutiful Gal recently participated in a Q&A tag. Because I loved the idea, I decided to do the same on my blog! โค๏ธ

In today’s post, I’ll be answering 20 “get to know me” questions that can teach followers new and old a bit more about me. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Alright. *deep breath* Here we go!

  1. What is your first name? Everyone calls me Maggie, but my real name is Valerie. Yep! I’m named after my mom! โค
  2. Do you have a middle name? Yes: Marguerite. ๐Ÿ™‚ So it’s Valerie Marguerite, not Maggie Marguerite, haha. My nickname comes from my middle name!
  3. Can you tell me your age and birthday? Yes, I’m 17 years old, and my birthday is on April 10th.
  4. Where in the world are you? The southern United States, and I’ve lived here my whole life!
  5. What is your maternal language? What language do you speak at home? Do you speak any other languages? English is the language I grew up hearing, then eventually speaking. I’m learning Spanish, not just for my future in Guatemala, but also because it is spoken a lot where I live, and I know how helpful it will be to be fluent in Spanish for future jobs!
  6. Are you married? If so, how many years? Did you have a big wedding? Alas, I am unmarried at this current time.
  7. Are you single? Do you have a boyfriend? if so, how many years have you been together? I am very single, indeed – and quite happy about that! I’m getting to use this time in my life to grow closer to the Lord and my family. โค The only relationship I’ve everย been in lasted a [cumulative, long story] whole two months. Haha. And that was his fault, not mine!ย But it’s all for the best.
  8. Are you a mom or dad? How many babes do you have? Can you tell me their first names or nicknames and ages? Awww no, I’m not a mom, but I would love to be someday! It’s always been on my heart to adopt … maybe one day. ๐Ÿ™‚
  9. What do you do for a living? At this current time, the most I’ve done in the ways of “jobs” is reshelving books at my favorite library. I haven’t gottenย a job yet.
  10. What did you study in University? Did you attend? I haven’t gone yet, and I’m not sure if I will!
  11. Whatโ€™s your favorite book? Hamlet by William Shakespeare!
  12. Whatโ€™s your favorite movie? It’s a complete tie between Saving Grace and Waking Ned Devine. Funny how they’re both about Irish/Scottish people, hahaha!
  13. What is your favorite band or artist? Leeland!
  14. What is your favorite food? Cheese – on anything, everything, and each thing that can go with it. And lots of it!
  15. Do you have any hobbies? Yes! I love to read, write, blog, dance, sing, and spend time with the Lord and my family, in no particular order.
  16. What sports/activities do you practice? I like playing kickball in my front yard sometimes, but that’s about it for sports, lol.
  17. Do you have any pets? Can you tell me their names? I don’t have any pets. But when I was little, we had three guinea pigs (Oreo, Becky, and Chestnut), and an outdoor cat (Dorie).
  18. What time is it for you right now? 8:46ย AM EST.
  19. Why do you blog? To express the things that I love most about life, and to interact with my absolute favorite blogging friends!
  20. What do you love about blogging? Is there something you donโ€™t like? Getting to express myself through my posts and photography,ย as well as browsing others’ blogs, are my favorite parts. What I don’t like isย forcing myself to stick to a posting schedule, but I’m starting to do better about giving myself space and planning better. Another thing I don’t like is getting mixed signals fromย other bloggers, as that can be stressful, but I understand thatย everyoneย goes through difficult things that affect them. I’m doing my best to show compassion and not take it personally!

  1. I had no idea you were named after your mom. How neat! I had a hamster named oreo when I was a kid haha! It great that you’re enjoying your time being single and are taking the time to know yourself and continue to develop your relationship with God. Have a great day Maggie!

    1. Yeah! Things can get pretty confusing at doctors’ offices, though; we have to explain that I go by Maggie and not Valerie Jr. (That’s what gets put on mail sometimes!!!)
      It can definitely be a challenge to wait on dating until I meet the right guy, but I know that I’m getting to spend all this time with my family for a reason. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you, I hope that your day’s great, too! โค

  3. It’s so nice to learn more about you ๐Ÿ™‚ When I was younger I had a boss who always spelled my name just like your middle name, but with 2 t’s “Margueritte” and pronounced it that way too. He said it was the proper way lol.

      1. It was wonderful! I played games with my family, and we had a nice dinner at home. ๐Ÿ™‚ Unfortunately, we didn’t get to go pick strawberries because the patch was closed! Due to all the rain we’ve been getting, the plants weren’t getting enough sun, so they were letting the strawberries ripen some more before opening the fields. We’re planning to go soon ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. That’s sound like a great day!! Sorry about the strawberries. I was blessed last week when I was out the patch here had some. They said there wouldn’t be a long season this year due to the rain and it being 70 plus degrees one day and in the 30’s at night ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But the ones I got were huge and delicious so I am thankful for that. I bet when you go, they will be great and you will make something delicious with them ๐Ÿ˜‰

      3. Yeah, the weather here this spring has been so crazy! All of the flowering plants around here don’t know what to think, haha. But our grass sure knows that it’s getting warmer! It grows soooo fast in the warm seasons. Thank you, I hope that they are delicious!

  5. I enjoyed getting to know you more! ๐Ÿ™‚ We have a lot in common! I’m in the Southern U.S., single, haven’t been to college, I love anything with cheese, learning Spanish (but you knew that one already), and we have almost the same hobbies (I like to dance but I’m not good at it, lol)! ๐Ÿ˜€

    As for doing the tag, I did a similar post last month here if you’d like to read it: https://followinghimbesidestillwaters.wordpress.com/2017/03/22/more-awards/ ๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. Thanks, Grace! Glad you enjoyed it. I’ll have to go read that post of yours later! Hahaha, I’m not very good at dancing, either; I just like to pretend I can dance when I’m playing JustDance games on my Wii! Have you ever played those? I love them ๐Ÿ™‚
