One of my favorite movies growing up was this one called Crossroads. It’s mainly about three girls who reconnect after a long-lost friendship, and it starred Britney Spears, Zoe Saldana, Taryn Manning, and Dan Aykroyd. Long story short, I lived for this movie.

The Liebster Award

What is the Liebster Award exactly? Well, I wasn’t sure, either, so I did some quick research.
