My dad at "Sushi and Pizza" nominated me for an award he created called the Perfect Patience award, which is awesome, because us bloggers/readers/fangirls (or fanboys)/writers have to at least try to be patient all. The. Time.
The fourth season of "Sherlock." The ninth season of "Doctor Who." The next episode of "Supernatural." (Are you sensing a theme here?) Winter by Marissa Meyer. The last "Mockingjay" movie. The results of a novel contest I entered through Scholastic. The "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" movie. Basically loving something that comes out in installments is hard.
2. What are three things that absolutely try your patience?
1. Hiatus/waiting (as you can clearly see from my answer above). Having friends in different time zones is hard, because you might have to wait eight hours before that person wakes up and sees your message. 2. Someone's inability to make a decision. 3. Trying to explain something to someone who just isn't listening.
Usually taking deep breaths is the best way to go about it, unless you're going to be waiting for a very long time. In that case, I try to pass the time by reading and writing. If I'm waiting for new episodes/seasons of a show, I'll rewatch episodes (though even that can make me more frustrated) or write fan-fiction about it. Pinterest is a great place to go to express your issues with patience with other fangirls. Texting/e-mailing/messaging something in all caps to someone who's waiting with you is very therapeutic. Especially if you can count on them to write back in all caps.
Ugh, probably spelling mistakes. Certain grammar rules can be tricky for anybody to learn and practice, but it's so easy to open a new tab and double check that you're spelling something correctly. It takes all of three seconds.
5. Sherlock Holmes or Sheldon Cooper? Which roommate would try your patience more?
I would definitely rather live with Sherlock. While they both can be condescending and have annoying habits, Sheldon seems way more particular. Sherlock would be the kind of roommate who wouldn't mind my clutter if I were in the middle of a project, because he'll make a mess, too, if he's on a case. Plus, it's Sherlock freaking Holmes.
I tag . . .
-Cait at "Paper Fury" (because "Supernatural" and "Sherlock" and time zone issues)
-Aisha (you can do it in the comments, since you don't have a blog. Though you should totally get a blog because that would be awesome.) (because you're an extremely patient critique partner who doesn't mind waiting a little longer for me to look over your writing--thank you)
-nevillgirl at "Musings From Neville's Navel" (because being a fangirl is rough, and I'm sure liking Game of Thrones is especially difficult right now since the show is going to reach the ending before the books)
But I would love to hear from all of you! :) So anybody who's reading this, feel free to grab the award for yourself and blog about it or just answer the questions in the comments. Have fun!
