Nominated For The Black Cat Blue Sea Award!

What’s this? A blog award about a cat? I’m in!

So I was nominated for this award by the lovely c.l.skellern. I haven’t been nominated for an award in a while and I haven’t been nominated for this one yet, so thank you! This award is apparently for “bloggers who strive to write for everybody and no matter how many viewers they get, make an impact on a reader. This award is an expression of gratitude to the nominee. It should be awarded to anybody that you choose deserves it and it doesn’t mean that they have hundreds of followers and likes.” So, to say the least, I am honoured. Because as much as I love followers and likes and comments, I’m really just glad to have readers!

The rules for this award is as follows:

1. Anybody nominated can nominate up to seven other bloggers.

2. Anybody nominated answers the three questions

3. Create another three questions for your nominees.

The three questions I was asked were:

1.  If you could do-over your life again and be good at anything and do anything, what hobby/skill/job would you master?
I’d master the skill of talking to people. I’m an introvert and likely won’t talk unless someone talks to me. I feel like I’ve missed chances to make friends because I’m shy.

2. What is a trait you find so annoying that you would ban it?
SLOW WALKING.

3. What is your favourite book, and why?
Hmm, I don’t have one favourite book. I of course love the Harry Potter books, but for the purpose of this question, I’m going to answer with Seraphina by Rachel Hartman. It’s a really great fantasy book about a girl who is a half dragon. I wrote a review of it here, if anyone really wants to know more.

My nominees are as follows:

The Learnify

DaleyDowning

Just In Queso

M, The Average Girl

light up the shining stars

Jeffrey’s blog

Unfiltered Freckles

And the questions I’m asking are:

1. What’s your favourite meme and why?

2. What was the last thing/person/conversation you really laughed at?

3. What is the strangest thing you like to eat?

Of course, there’s no pressure for any of my noms to participate. I understand if it’s not your thing! Just know that I do enjoy your blog!

Again, thanks to c.l.skellern for my nomination. I had a lot of fun writing this post. I don’t do award posts a lot, but when I do get nominated, I enjoy it because they give me a chance to answer questions that I never really think about and share more of myself with y’all. I like talking about myself!

That’s all for now!

Nominated For The Versatile Blogger Award!

Of all the blogging awards out there, the Versatile one is probably the most fitting one for me. Versatile means the ability to adapt or have many functions, and this blog is a mess of many functions. I have no niche, post basically anything I want, and I’m accepting that. So I was very pleased when blogging pal Anand from Blabberwockying nominated me for this award. It’s nice to know that people find my mess enjoyable.

The-Versatile-Blogger-Award

The rules for this award are as follows:

1. Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.

2. Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.

3.  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.

4. Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award

5. Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Seven things about myself…I’m wildly average, but here’s seven things that are hopefully somewhat amusing. It took me a while to think of these, but that’s because I kept getting distracted by TV.

  1. I wanted to be a teacher for the longest time but now I don’t really want to. I don’t know what I really want to do, but I’m pretty sure it’s not teach.
  2. As I type this, I just finished watching the Daredevil movie…it was SO BAD. The TV show is so much better and everyone should go watch it now.
  3. I hate horror movies and TV shows. I don’t do scary. As I tell anyone who suggests horror, “the only horror I want is Rocky Horror.”
  4. Mint is my favourite flavour. Mint ice cream, candy, drinks…I want it all and I love it all.
  5. I’m usually not a huge fan of dialogue in showtunes, so one time I edited it out using Adobe Audition and the skills I learned at school, and the song actually sounds good! It’s a silly fact, but I’m just proud of the fact that I successfully used something I learned in school.
  6. I like onions. Raw. I will literally cut chunks of raw onion to munch on, and I don’t even cry when doing so.
  7. I don’t like the taste of plain water. Or, should I say, I find it too boring. That’s not to say I don’t drink it once in a while, but if I can avoid it, I usually will. I’ll add juice or those water flavour things sometimes.

And now for the nominees. The rules say 15 people who you’ve recently discovered, but I don’t think I’m familiar enough with my recents to nominate them, y’know? And 15 is a lot, so I think I’ll go with like 5 fairly recents….okay? Okay! Check out the awesome blogs of:

Zen and π

By Hook Or By Book

Popcorn In My Purse

All-Nighter Writer

The Nerdy Rebellion

Definitely go read these blogs and maybe give them a follow if you enjoy their posts like I do! And again, thanks so much to Anand for this cool award nomination. 😀

That’s all for now!

Nominated For The Sunshine Blogger Award!

Though I am by no means a radically cheery or optimistic person, I guess I manage to keep things happy on my blog, because I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award! Yay! Maybe it’s called that because it makes people happy?

I was nominated by tpcsufian, and I thank you very much for the honour!

The rules for this award are as follows:

1) Thank the person who nominated you.
2) Answer the questions from the person who has nominated you.
3) Nominate some other bloggers for this award.
4) Write the same amount of questions for the bloggers you have nominated. 
5) Notify the bloggers you have nominated.

The question I was asked was: If God was to appear before you right now, what form do you think He would come to you as? Would you be skeptical? What would be your reaction? 

Well, dang. That’s a deep question. I’d joke that it’s too early in the morning to answer such a question, but as I type this it’s 12:30 in the afternoon and I have no excuse. Okay, well, I think God would come as like this big energy force. So like, you wouldn’t be able to see like a human form but you’d feel a really strong presence and maybe see a bright rainbow pulsing light. Unless, of course, to make this appearance less shocking, He would come as a normal human and be like “what up, I’m God” (a la Evan Almighty). Would I be skeptical? I mean, maybe if He did come as a human, I’d need proof, but if he did come as a strong presence, there’s no way a feeling like that could be fake so I’d believe that. And I guess my reaction would be like…. (*o*). I can honestly say that isn’t really a question I’ve considered, so it was fun to give it a shot.

My nominees are:

Merlin’s Musings

A Funny Thing Happened When I Was Learning Myself

Introverted Fangirl

It Is Trish

Read Love Express

My question is going to be a lot less philosophical… If your house was on fire and you could only save one thing (excluding family members/pets) what would it be? Or, in a less wordy way, what is your most treasured possession? (and yes, I did totally steal this question from an episode of Modern Family)

Again, thanks so much to tpcsufian for the nomination! It was fun and it made me really think….and really want to rewatch Evan Almighty!

That’s all for now!

Nominated For The Creative Blogger Award!

Guys guys guys guys guys! Good news! Yesterday I was nominated by the totally awesome readloveexpress for the Creative Blogger Award. Considering I started this blog about a month ago and am still getting comfortable, I was so not expecting this! I am thrilled nonetheless, so thank you so very much! 😀

The Rules for the award are:

1. Nominate 15-20 blogs and notify the nominees.

2. Post the link of the blog that nominated you.

3. Share five random facts about yourself.

Here are my nominees…. (I don’t follow that many people and the some of the people I do haven’t posted a lot since, so I’m only nominating 10).

And now for 5 random facts about myself… oh jeeze, here we go…

1. I sneeze a lot. It runs in the family.

2. I love, love, love dragons. They are the coolest creatures. I kid you not, 80% of the books I read are about dragons in some way or another.

3. I am really good at memorizing song lyrics. This includes a few rap songs/verses. It’s a real fun party trick because no one thinks I can do a whole Drake song but jokes on them because I can and will.

4. I walk fast and efficiently so I am always annoyed by other slow walking people in school hallways.

5. I adore puns. I don’t understand who doesn’t love a good pun. They’re hilarious and witty and usually amazing.

And that is it. It’s been an honour to receive this nomination and I can’t wait to read the posts of my noms. Again, thanks to readloveexpress for this opportunity. It’s been fun!
