19 Questions I have for you

    Educational Quotation: You got to be willing to ask dumb q… | Flickr 

     Good greetings, my epic gamers and procrastinators! My extroverted introverts and my introverted extroverts! Nature Nerd here. We have been through several weeks of staying at home and I still don’t know if I enjoy it or not. On one hand I have a bit more downtime and have been able to do a daily workout for the first time, but on the other hand, school work seems to be much worse and take more time than expected (Especially the application we are required to use, which is a rant that I will spare you from). I have got back into the world of videogames and I am now using discord and servers to play with my friends online, but I do miss going to trampoline parks and pools with them. 

     What do you miss the most from normal life? Honestly, I miss not being able to see my friends and family the most. Usually I get to see my extended family from both sides about once or twice a month for birthdays and events. I think the last time I saw them was Christmas.

     Moving on from the introduction and into the transition: My communications class have written lists of questions that we would like an answer to. For me, my questions don’t fit into a theme or category. Some of them are questions I think about a lot, others are to generate ideas, some are just because I want to hear your stories and opinions. For those reasons, here is 19 questions I have for you:


  • Do you consider eyebrows facial hair?
  • What is a funny story you like to share now, that was horrific at the time?
  • Can you describe the taste of water through words?
  • Why is “Photo” spelled with a “Ph” and “Footage” spelled with an “F”?
  • What do you think is something that people pretend to like, even if they don’t?
  • What interesting/weird things have you overheard in public spaces?
  • What question do you have that no one has given you a good/clear answer to? (Mine is the first question)
  • Is there a word for someone who is both an extrovert and an introvert?
  • What do you think dogs and cats think about?
  • What is your favorite comeback from a Disney movie?
  • What is a strange fact you recently learned that you can’t get out of your mind?
  • What is your plan for a zombie apocalypse?
  • Do you know of any weird phobias? (Anatidaephobia is the fear that, somewhere, a duck is always watching you)
  • What is a nostalgic show that you want to rewatch an episode of?
  • What Disney character do you most relate to and why?
  • What is something embarrassing you did as a child that you laugh about now?
  • What is something you bought, but you have never used since?
  • What is your strangest pet peeve?
  • What is a strange law that almost everyone breaks?

     Which question(s) would you like to answer? Go ahead and leave your answer in the comment below. I always love to hear from all of you! Also, how has your self-quarantine been going? Go check out my classmates list of questions, they are thinkers like you and I. Thank you for reading; I need to get rolling. Nerd out! 😛

7 interesting things about ME!


     Good day, my travel-buddies and my nature-lovers! My theatre-geeks and my disney-fans! It is another year and another student blogging challenge. Speaking of a new year, as I am sure you know that 2020 has not had the greatest start (Being home instead of at school with my bros). We have had WWIII rumors, wildfires in Australia, and the virus that shall NOT be named. It is no longer relevant for me to tell you to make sure you “Wash your hands” and “Don’t touch your face”, but I am sure you have heard that many times before. Let’s continue! I have found new interests over the past year and I want to give you a quick taste of the growing me. Here are 7 interesting things about me:

  • I love nature. As you can tell by my blog name, I am a nature-lover. I love animals so much! I even have three dogs. All are adorable and fun to be around. I love to go hiking and exploring in the woods, or by waterfalls, or in caves, or anywhere in nature! 
  • I am a theatre kid. I am currently the lead in a one-act play at my middle school. I have been in 15 musicals and 23 shows over all (Not including ballet recitals when I was a little kid). Some I have been in you may recognize: School of Rock, Frozen, the Addams Family musical, and my personal favorite musical, Newsies (I have been in it twice)!
  • I love holidays and celebrations. I go all out on spirit days at school and holidays with family. I always make every slightly special event a celebration. I love spending time with family and friends on holidays such as Easter and Halloween. Even if my avatar above might not look like me, it shows my desire to have fun, be crazy, and sprinkle everyone with confetti.
  • I love to bike. Speaking of holidays, I got a new bike for Christmas and I have been biking to school, to shopping centers, and to parks more. I love the feeling of cruising fast downhill with the wind in my hair. I have recently been biking with my friends around town. We have had a good time going to playgrounds and ice cream shops. 
  • I am a summer gal. I love the beach, swimming, and spending my afternoon enjoying the warm sun. I don’t have to worry about bundling up in a sweater (while it is fun), instead I can kick off my flip-flops and feel the sand between my toes. I always remember to stop and smell the roses.
  • I love art. No matter the kind, I love to paint, sketch, write, make film, color, fold origami, sew, etc. Even if it isn’t technically art, such as building sculptures in minecraft or using digital art apps. I even make my own Halloween costume!
  • I am a travel-buff. I have been to lots of places around the world with my family. Every other summer we go to the beach and have a splash! (Haha puns). My parents, older brother, and I all enjoy seeing the world together. You should try it some time!

     That wraps up the first task of this years’ Student Blogging Challenge. Do you have anything in common with me? What is your biggest hobby/interest? Tell me in the comments down below. I want to thank all of you for continuing to stay with my blog. Thank you for reading; I need to get rolling. Nerd out! 😛

My Student Blogging Challenge Reflection

 Greetings, my commenting-crowd and my blogging-buddies! My posting-people and my rad-readers! It has been a stimulating nine posts. Posts sharing my interests such as theatre, nature, holidays, and more. I have reached a total of twenty-one comments and three-hundred and eleven pageviews. Most comments were from classmates, but quite a few were from people I have never known before. That is why I appreciate blogging so much. You have the opportunity to share your life experiences with others, make new friends, and unearth a world that I have never seen before.

 I adored writing all of my posts, but my favorite post has to be “Halloween: How to get the most candy while Trick-or-Treating!” Which you can read here: Boo! Holidays have always been a passion of mine. I got to do research on the most popular costumes, how many people celebrate Halloween, etc. I had the chance to teach my tips on how to get the most candy, too. Tips such as “Keep the number of group members to a minimum” and “Don’t take too long at each house”. I have used these tips and every year I get more and more candy and I am delighted to assist others in getting more candy. In fact, I still have my stash of candy from Halloween. 

 It was appealing to learn about different web tools, too. We got to add in a visitor tracking widget. Mine is a globe that spins around and around, showing little green dots for where in the world someone is reading. I have gotten viewers from Tennessee, New York, New Jersey, and even Canada. I have the Student Blogging Challenge badge for 2019 underneath my visitor tracking widget, as well, to show that I am satisfied to take part in the challenge. 

 I assume I know what you are thinking. Don’t worry, I am not going to stop blogging just because the Student Blogging Challenge is over. I will still be creating posts about my personality, my experiences, and my interests. I have a lot of ideas that I want to present to you before this school year is over. Stay tuned for that. What is your favorite part of blogging? Tell me in the comments below. Also, please leave a link to your favorite post you have written, so I can repay the visit. I always enjoy hearing from you guys. Thank you for reading; I need to get rolling. Nerd out! 😛

Can You Guess the Disney Movie by the Emojis?

 Hello, my party-people and resolution-writers! My new-year-nerds and my confetti-community! Nature nerd here. Some say the new decade starts this year and some say it starts in 2021. Whichever you believe, I hope your New Year was filled with sparkling cider and lots of confetti. I spent my holiday at a ski resort with my family. It was my first time skiing and I fell a few times while trying to get off the ski-lift. How did you celebrate? Sadly, Winter break is over and I have got some catching up to do. Here is my Week 6 Emoji Blog Post.

 I have created a quizizz for this week, like when I did one on the lyrics from songs in broadway musicals. This time it is based off of something else I am interested in, Disney. Ten questions, you have thirty seconds each. Do you think you can guess the Disney movie by the emojis? Let’s find out:

 What was your score? Tell me in the comments below, I always enjoy hearing from you guys. I also have a four-question poll about New Year’s Resolutions that you can take here, even if you don’t write them: New Year’s Resolutions. I will post the responses and statistics (With individual privacy, of course) in a future post. Thank you for reading; I need to get rolling. Nerd out! 😛

DIY Holiday crafts

Hello, my grateful gobblers and my tinsel-lovers! My party people and my happy hoppers! Nature Nerd here. I love holidays! The excitement, the decorations, the costumes, the lights, the food, and the worry of scrambling around the crowded shopping mall to buy presents for everyone–because you procrastinated and the holiday is tomorrow.

Anyways, it is week seven for the 2019 Student Blogging Challenge, and this week’s topic is holidays! Halloween has just passed, and it marks the start of the holiday season. Next, for me, is Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. I have put together a little DIY craft video for you. That way, you can celebrate the holidays with spirit and decorations! Ready to get your craft on? Ready, set, go!

Are you in the holiday spirit now? I know I am. What holidays do you celebrate? Tell me in the comments below. Also tell me your holiday stories and traditions.  I always enjoy hearing from you guys. My parents hide a pickle ornament on the Christmas tree every year. My brother and I have a race to find it, and whoever finds it first gets to open the first present on Christmas day.  I wish you a happy holiday, no matter what you celebrate. Thank you for reading; I need to get rolling. Nerd out! 😛

Broadway Musical Songs Quiz: Finish the Lyrics!

Hello, my fellow theatre geeks! Nature Nerd here. Music is great. It can make you feel happy, sad, excited, like you want to dance, goofy, or like you feel like smashing all the furniture in your room. But please don’t do that. Plato once said that, “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” I believe is true, because music can make people feel alive and make them want to dance. As a theatre geek, I am always up for dancing.

 My favorite kinds of music are soundtracks. I listen to soundtracks all the time, whether it is from a Disney movie or from a Broadway show. This is why I have created the ultimate “Finish the Lyrics” Broadway musical song quiz on a website called “Quizizz.com”. Do you have what it takes to get all of them right? Let’s find out. Click on the image to get to the quiz or use this link:


Tell me, what was your score? Also, what was your favorite musical that appeared on the quiz. Let me know in the comments below. I always want to know what you guys think. Keep listening, grooving, and singing to music. Music can reduce stress, improve memory, and ease pain. Thank you for reading, now I should get rolling. Nerd out! 😛

Halloween: The Pumpkin Patch


 Did I scare you? Probably not, because you are reading this on a blog and not watching a horror movie. Let’s continue. Hello, Nature Nerd here! Day two of my Halloween posts. Halloween is tomorrow. I want to share some of my stories of going to the pumpkin patch. Let’s jump right into this. So here are my stories from the pumpkin patch.

 There is a pumpkin patch about thirty minutes away from my house. Me and my mom’s side of the family go there every year to get pumpkins for Halloween. The pumpkin patch I go to has a Fall Festival where they have lots of attractions and, of course, pumpkins. They have a small animals area where you can feed and pet some of them. They have a corn maze that I almost got lost in one time. They have a hay ride that takes you to a pumpkin patch to get your pumpkins. They have two big bounce pillows that kids can jump around on. The pumpkin patch also has a big lounge chair that is about twenty-feet tall that me and my family always take pictures in every time we go.

 Turkeys, guinea fowl, and the chickens in the animal area wander around, because they are safe enough to not have to stay in a pen and they could just fly out the enclosure, anyway. Although, the turkeys are territorial and they will march together in a line and come toward you squawking. It is kind of scary, but all you have to do is show them who is the boss by stomping loudly or jumping toward them. They can smell fear!

 The hay rides take people to the huge field of pumpkins, but that are still attached to their stems. You can ask them for a pocket-knife-like-tool so you can get your pumpkin without the trouble of trying to rip the stem. The hayride is a tractor that is pulling along a big wagon where the visitors sit. I always get a small pumpkin and a big pumpkin. One to paint and one to carve. The wagon stops once we get to the pumpkin patch and the wagon lets the people off the hayride. The wagon gives everyone about 10 minutes to pick which pumpkin they want. Then, everyone hops back on the wagon with their pumpkins and goes back to the main area. Like most pumpkin patches, they put it on a scale and you pay based on the weight. That is how the system works. 

 One year during a pumpkin patch visit, I was about eight, my family and I had just picked out our pumpkins and we hopped on the wagon with them. The tractor started its engine and we started to move slowly. In the distance a little kid, maybe four or five years old, started running after the wagon. A woman, who I am assuming was the child’s mom, shouted at the tractor driver to stop, but the driver couldn’t hear her over the noise of the tractor’s engine. She shouted louder until eventually the driver heard her and he stopped the tractor. The kid hopped into the wagon and he was panting from running after the wagon. Nothing more to that story, accept the fact that we almost left a little kid in a huge field of pumpkins.

 There were two bounce pillows. Just in case you didn’t know, a bounce pillow is basically a  giant moon-bounce attached to the ground, usually surrounded by sand, without walls or barriers. I call them bounce pillows, because they look like giant pillows on the ground. One time, my friend had her birthday party at the pumpkin patch, because her birthday is near Halloween. We had a lot of fun seeing the animals, exploring the corn maze, going on the hayride, and the day was coming to a close. We went over to the bounce pillows and started bouncing around having fun, until my friend decided to play Popcorn. Popcorn is a game that you can play on trampolines and moon-bounces where most people playing lie down and curl themselves in ball and hold that position. While other people bounce on the trampoline/moon-bounce and try to make the other people let go of their ball position. As you can probably tell, this game is kind of dangerous. We started to play and I, along with other people, started on the ground in a ball first. I was one of the last few to survive, when suddenly all of the people jumping jumped in unison and as a small sixty-pound child at the time, I went flying off of the bounce pillow and landed hard on the ground. Let’s just say I had lots of bruises after that. 

 Those were my stories from the pumpkin patch. Have you ever been to a pumpkin patch? Please tell me your thoughts and experiences in the comments. Also, leave a link to your blog in the comments, so I can repay the visit. I always enjoy hearing from you guys. Thank you for reading. A post about my tips on how to get the most candy on Halloween is coming tomorrow. So stick around if you want to see that! That is all from me. Nerd out! 😛

Halloween: A Spooky Surprise

     Hello, my ghouls and goblins! My spooky spiders and my vile vampires! Nature Nerd here. It is that time of year to wake the dead and to pop out the popcorn and watch scary movies. We have two days till Halloween and I thought I would put out a blog post each day sharing my stories and thoughts on the holiday. I will post a page every day from now on coming up till Halloween when I finish it off. 

     I am participating in the Student Blogging Challenge. During week three, we need to create a story or a poem about an image we found online. The twist is that we need to make sure we can use the image without interfering with Copyright law. I have created a poem telling a story. Two in one! Here is my poem:

A Spooky Surprise

It once again is that time of year.

The witches come to taste your fear.

The zombies have awaken to eat your brain.

The maniacs are also not so sane.

Vampires pop out to suck your blood.

The swamp monsters emerge from the mud.

It’s grim, there are ghouls, goblins, and ghosts.

Looking for what they seek most,

they search for your pain and screams,

But all is not what it seems.

Jack-o-lanterns, there are a ton.

But there are lots of things, not scary, but fun.

Of course, we have the sweets.

Dressing up to trick or treat.

The lights are up and shining bright,

But in the distance, I see something that gives me a fright. 

The figure approaches and I feel a chill.

I was not prepared for the upcoming thrill.

I didn’t know what to do.

Suddenly, it curled up by my shoe.

I looked down, it wasn’t scary at all.

For it was just a black kitten, so cute and small.

To see a black cat on Halloween is bad luck, I’ve heard so.

But the kitten wanted to be pet, it was hard to say no.

The kitten was not at all a fright.

More of an adorable surprise on Halloween Night…

Then, I fell down the stairs the next day.

The End.

    I hope you enjoyed the poem.

I will have another Halloween story posted tomorrow. The next one is about my experiences at a pumpkin patch. So, please stick around if you want to see that. Thank you for reading. Nerd out! 😛

How to write quality comments

Hello, my fellow nerds! Nature Nerd here. I hope you are having a lovely day. It is currently cold and pouring rain where I am in this planet of ours. So, to keep warm and cozy I am sitting on a recliner couch with a blanket and a nice mug of hot chocolate, currently writing this post for you. By the way, happy spooky, or some may say spoopy, season to you! I love Halloween. The costumes, the decorations, and, of course, the candy. I like all types of candy, besides super sour types. What is your favorite candy? If you don’t celebrate Halloween, then, happy fall season to you!

Anyway, as you know, I am participating in the Student Blogging Challenge. The challenge for week two is to create a step by step list on how to write a quality comment. Me and Abby, from Abby’s Bloggeroni, created a list to help you create quality comments. Here it is:

How to write a quality comment on a blog! 

1) Give a greeting!

     Say hello to the writer and introduce yourself.


2) Say something nice!

     Once you read the post, compliment the writer. Say something about the visuals or the story that is shared in their blog. You want to spread positivity if you want more people to visit your blog.


3) Find a similarity!

     Read over their post to look for things you have in common with them, if you can’t find anything in their post that you can relate with, then find something that interested you in the post. 


4) Write about it!

     Tell the writer a compliment and a similarity between you and the writer. Sometimes, a writer leaves a question at the end of their post that you can respond to. You shouldn’t give your full name, your location, your birthday, or a strong opinion you have, because that could spark an argument.


5) Ask a question!

     Give the writer a question that gives them something to respond to. That way they can reply to your comment. You can ask about a detail that wasn’t in their story or about an interest that you have in common.


6) Review and edit!

     Read through your comment and edit it. Make sure you have proper grammar and spelling.


7) Sign it off!

     Leave either your first name, your nickname, or your blog name. Whichever you want to be called by. Under your name leave a link to your blog so the writer can repay the visit if they please. 


That is how you write a quality comment. The most important thing to remember, in my opinion, is to be supportive. You also need to make sure you leave your blog name and a link you your blog, too. That way the writer can visit your blog. I hope you have learned from this list Abby and I created. Make sure to head to Abby’s blog for more entertaining content.

Here is the link to her blog: http://blogs.lcps.org/abbysbloggeroni/

As always, thank you for reading my blog. Please leave a link to your blog in the comments, so I can repay the visit. Have a Happy Autumn and a Happy Halloween. Posts of my halloween stories are coming soon, so stick around if you want to see that.  I hope to see you all again sometime soon. Nerd out! 😛
