Accepting Yet Another Reward, Again!

Heheh, well this put a little cheer to my night. Quite a few things did actually. I’m getting better and better by the day, health wise. I’ve made a few new friends over the past days.

I’ve managed to pick myself up, dust myself off and force myself to go out, once. I did, with a good friend that brought two other people, through which I met another person. The joy’s of friendship and being social and positive. Today, I spent most of my day chatting with Djordje and getting to know him better, and mind you, it’s 4:30 in the morning. I’ve finally found out the age of one of my very favorite bloggers here on WordPress. I’m still confused about that but pleasantly surprised at the same time. And now, the lovely and exceptionally talented Britta has nominated for the Sisterhood of The World Bloggers Award!

I’ve been nominated for this award I think a couple times before but it’s such a joy and honor. I feel like I should honor that someone felt my blog, writing and I with it were worthy of any award. A big big thank you to her. She is one fantastic strong, talented lady, who I have learned a few things from.

The rules I think are very much known to everyone. In a nutshell, you need to post the award logo, thank the blogger who nominated you, answer their questions they’ve left you, and possibly leave ten questions of your own to your nominee’s, and nominate seven people.
Also, I really need to think about my nominee’s, because there aren’t many people that I haven’t already nominated before – in a few other awards as well. I don’t think I’ll be able to assemble all of them right away. I’ll answer the questions Britta has left me, I’ll come up with ten questions of my own, but I’ll need to come back and edit my nominee’s in.

  1. If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? 
    – I would really love to visit Australia. It’s such a beautiful and fantastic country to live in. I don’t think I would adapt on the lifestyle there, how they are used to living, but to me, it’s nature’s blessing.
  2. What has been your greatest learning experience thus far? 
    – My learning experience. Everything I have ever learned has been learned, in mostly the easy way rounds. My past I guess. I feel like that’s such a cliche answer but it’s really true. My past is basically what formed my mind, or at least, encouraged me to learn from it and think with my head. My present and the fear of my future makes it as steal as it is now.
  3. Who/what/where do you draw your strength from? (you can answer for all three W’s or just one…it’s up to you!)
    – Who, myself. I am a very self-concious person and I don’t like anyone to see me in my moment’s of weakness. My strength draws and ooze’s out of me in times where my character demands for it to be at it’s best. If I accomplish that, I feel stronger and eventually build it even more.
    – What, from the insides of people. That sounds so freaking creepy, doesn’t it. But, someone has to be a very specific, but if found, it’s where I get my inspiration from. My motivation and my strength for whatever that I need to do. Emotionally, whatever it may be.
  4. What blog post of yours are you most proud of and why?
    – Dang, I don’t have one of these. I really really love my post “Straight up Happiness? I Think Laughter“, because it’s something I live by. Something that really defines me in the simplest of words. It was something I thought about in front of my screen, I was telling it to myself, and wrote it down. And loved it. I stand by what I said.
  5. Your philosophy towards life in a few words…what is it?
    – You were born, you’re gonna die. It’s gonna end. Depressing, I know but.
  6. What is your favorite ice cream flavor? (apologies if you do not eat dairy…I myself get ill from ice cream, but still dream about those days when I could scarf down Ben Jerry’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough without getting an upset stomach)
    – I try to cut back on dairy, aiming towards veganism. But generally, I love old plain vanilla. It’s perfect in it’s simplicity.
  7. What does your dream home look like?
    – A picture that would describe exists not, sadly. It’s not called a Dream home for nothing.
  8. What is one thing you hope to have accomplished in ten years?
    Hope to have accomplished. A one way plain ride towards America. At least that.
  9. What is your favorite book?
    Honestly, I love the Harry Potter books. I love The Hobbit, I love Lord of the Rings. I don’t know.
  10. One thing that fills you with joy…what is it?
    – Animals.

These awards take up a lot of time. Really. I need to be snappy;

  1. What would be your dream pet?
  2. If you could do only one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
  3. Would you ever like to find out when you are going to die? Why or why not?
  4. What is your favorite thing about the WordPress community?
  5. Which are some bloggers that inspire you or brighten up your day?
  6. How do you feel about The Hobbit movies?
  7. Out of all the social media websites you know, which is your least favorite and why?
  8. What is one attribute you are most proud off on yourself?
  9. If you could move anywhere, where would it be?
  10. If you woke up and a genie offered you only one wish you may use selfishly, what would you wish for?

I was really quick with my questions. I think you’ll find them quite stupid but I think interesting to answer too.

Now, my nominees are:

Fiction Limbo, The Finicky Cynic, Coffee and Musings, I Prefer Deep Blues and Sea Foam Greens..

Two are very frequent guests of mine, but two favorites of mine. The finicky cynic amazes me with each post,how much we have in common, and Z’, Z is fabulous. On the other hand, the two remaining bloggers are ones I have been loving in the past few weeks. I don’t show it very often, but I’m one of those stalkers. I’ll silently stalk and poof, all of a sudden I’m there and you never knew I existed.

I love these awards. Even more so when it’s not 5am, but I wanted to do it. Now I need to hop into bed asap. Like now.

A big big thank you to Britta once more. She was the charry on top of a non-sarcastically fantastic cake today!

Blogmas!!

Yeeey! I love tags!

They’re so fun and answering questions is always a delight. Even more so when they’re all about Christmas!! Christmas okay? It’s getting so close I can’t handle it! I am prepared to eat, and that’s about it! I am so excited. A thank you too Tryingtofindmyselfon for being ever so sweet to tag me. Let’s get started!

❄ Favorite Festive Food ❄

I had to think hard about this because there aren’t many festive things served in my country. My very favorite thing that is served on Christmas has to be this very yummy salad I made on accident with mayonnaise and a little bit of sower cream that makes the tastiest cream with green peas and corn! It may sound very icky but it’s so delicious!

❄ Favorite Reindeer ❄

Pft, Rudolf?! Work that red nose gurl! (guy)

❄ Favorite Day from 12 Days of Christmas ❄

Two turtle doves… Because I love love and I love goofy looking animals. And flying, that is badass.

❄ Favorite Christmas Song ❄

All I want for Christmas is You. ❤ It brings up feels. I’m actually one of those people who DON’T listen to Christmas songs all that much. I’m that person who focuses on the movies. The songs come along for the ride.

❄ Favorite Christmas Present ❄

Almost all of my life I’ve had clothes given to my as various presents, whatever holiday or special occasions which is great for me, but sounds lame on paper. Uhm, I’ll go with the five hundred and eleven hundred piece jigsaw puzzles when I was like 10? I was obsessed and still LOVE them to death. That was a very jolly Christmas!

❄ Favorite Christmas film ❄

Okay, I know I said I’m the Christmas movie type but I don’t actually have favorites. It’s more like, Christmas channel and I enjoy each and every one that comes along. But, a few I really enjoy and are classics for the winter time, Love Actually. I think this is like, a worldwide classic, no? Definitely! I also really really love Single Santa Seeks Ms. Claus! So much fun and joy!

❄ Favorite Christmas Cracker Jokes and Toys ❄

I love those reindeer we here can win from collecting Coca Cola bottle caps. It’s like a win giveaway! You can get reindeer carrying a sack of coca cola’s on their back, or sleeping ones. It’s way cute!

❄ Favorite Christmas Decorations ❄

The Christmas tree… It looks magical and festive. It’s a decoration on it’s own. It lights up the entire room.

❄ Favorite Candle scent ❄

I’ve never had candles in my life or used them because they’re not very popular here… So I don’t have an answer. Cinnamon candle sounds awesome, also vanilla!

❄ Favorite Christmas Advert ❄

I don’t like these, honestly. I know, how could I say that but I don’t like them so I don’t pay attention…

❄ Favorite Christmas Tradition & Place to Spend Christmas ❄

Every year for the past 7, I’ve spent Christmas at my mom’s house and that became a tradition for us. No matter what happens, whatever party is going on, I’m at her place and it’s where I feel the best. Next to her and grandma. My mom is at her happiest around Christmas time. When it comes to Christmas, by heart she’s younger than me. We create a beautiful atmosphere, all cozy up next to each other and often play games and it’s always so much fun.

❄ Favorite Christmas fact ❄

For some reason, Christmassy colors are red, gold and green. I love that.

❄ Favorite Christmas Snowman Accessory  ❄

His broom. He works it like a purse!

La fin!

I hope you guys had as much fun reading as I had writing. I wish you all the happiest holidays, Christmas, New years, everything you celebrate! Be happy and spend it with the ones you love the most. I for sure will. May you have all jolly days!

Damn it! I forgot to tag other people. How absent minded of me. I apologize!

I tag, The Finicky Cynic, Through The Fire, A Writer’s Path, Cup of tie, and the lovely Pip, when she hopefully comes back to us. Anyone else missing her posts? I am greatly. Anyways, sorry for my stupidity!

Liebster Award!!

LiebsterAward

 

Aren’t I one lucky cupcake?! This made me absolutely happy! The Liebster award… Thank you so much! The lovely, Professional Dreamer nominated me, thank you so much! I really wasn’t expecting it. It’s a pretty cool thing, no matter what the award is. I guess I’ll start by starting the rules!:

Rule #1: Post the award logo on your blog.
Rule #2: Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their site.
Rule #3: Write 11 Random facts about yourself.
Rule #4: Nominate 11 bloggers who you feel deserve this award and who have less than 200 followers.
Rule #5: Answer the 11 questions they have left and ask your nominees 11 questions.

So far, got the first and two checked off the list. Nao, 11 random facts about myself, hm!
Okay!

  • I always need to drink out of the same mug/cup.  I have MY mug, reserved only for me, by me and whenever I want to drink something at home, that mug is mine to use. If it’s something else, I have this bad habit of just drinking it right out of the bottle. Of course, the cup choice changes whenever I choose to change it, if I want a prettier cup but it’s exclusively MINE.
  • I can’t prounounce the word jewelry. Not never, but never on the first go. I have adjust my tongue and try at least 3 times because I prounounce it correctly. It’s frustrating because I love the word.
  • I really love over sized sweaters. They’re so comfy and cozy. Autumn’s coming, so they’re really appropriate.
  • I hate loliipops. Generally sweats are not my thing but lollipops make me sick.
  • I love cardigans. Hooded cardigans as well. Ugh, so elegant and niice. Also appropriate for autumn.
  • I am obsessed with the show, Two And a Half Men. It’s golden.
  • I have read The Fault In Our Stars three times. 
  • I would love to decorate my entire house one day. Just everything, the floors, the walls, the furniture, every little bits and pieces of it. And decorate it each year, for every season and occasion.
  • I have a hourglass figure.
  • I am absolutely in love with the sea. I wanna be a mermaid.
  • I love buying school supplies. Pencils, coloring pencils, mechanical pencils, markers, notebooks, folders, erasers, the whole shabag.

Rule #3 ✓!

Now this was hard ’cause there is so many bloggers who deserve this but the rule says under 200 followers… There are still so many and I’m sorry if I didn’t include you!

Rule#4 ✓!

Here are Professional Dreamer ‘s questions for me!:

  1. What makes you smile? Mmm, animals, small acts of kindness. Compliments… Bright sunshine hitting me. That makes me feel very light and positive. (:
  2. If the sky’s the limit, what would you like to do next? Move!
  3. What’s your favorite season of the year? And why? Oh man. I always, automatically said SPRING. Always. Because it’s not too hot, not cold or rainy. Everything blooms. But, the older I get (not that it has anything to do with age), I’m loving autumn the most. I love the wind, I love the colors, the coziness and comfort it can bring. I don’t know, it’s pretty!
  4. If you could move to any part of the world right now, where would you go and why? Move?! Damn! I wanna say London… or LA. Or, I don’t know. Damn it! I need to get my wishes straight.
  5. What’s your favorite joke? I don’t like JOKES to be honest. I don’t find them funny.
  6. Describe your blog with a phrase. Erm… What? ;_;
  7. What is your favorite movie? I guess, The Lord Of The Rings, but very soon, going to take it’s place, The Hobbit ”trilogy”. Soon!
  8. Cats or dogs? Cats ❤
  9. What is your favorite country/city that you’ve visited? And Why? I’ve only been to Montenegro ever, so there’s not a favorite to pick from. 😦
  10. If you had a magic lamp, what would you wish for? How many wishes do I get? If one, I know this will sound very very shallow but to have money. Not because I want to be rich! Or because I am materialistic, I’m not! But, money is what I need to get out of here and at least START from somewhere. I need it in order to move forward. Be it just enough money to move and get a place. I’ll find a job and work my way from there, but just that start.
  11. If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, who would it be? Oh my god, your questions and mind teasers. For each I have to stop and think.
    Uuhm. I would’ve loved to meet Patrick Swayze. I really would. ❤

Phew, one part of rule 5 completed!

Here are my 11 questions for my lovely nominees:

  1. Do you like to watch Horror movies?
  2. What would be your dream pet?
  3. What is your biggest fear of all time and why?
  4. What is/was your favorite subject in school?
  5. What is your ”favorite” activity to do on a rainy day?
  6. Do you smoke?

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award!(?)

20140807-124642-pm-46002110

 

Oh my gosh! I tried doing a little bit research on what exactly this award means, because I have never encountered such things, but nevertheless. I have been nominated by the lovely  Z, I Prefer Deep Blues and Sea Foam Greens! I think my heart skipped a beat when I saw my blog link in her list, I could not believe it. Her blog is aboslutely lovely and true. She has a magical way of connecting with people through her posts. She writes about everything and to me, her posts are always from the heart. Posts you can learn from. You should definitely check her out! Enormous hugs and thanks to her for this, I don’t think I quite deserve it. ^_^
Before I get into it completely, I apologize this is a little bit late, or later than the time  I was actually nominated.

Apparently, there are rules each nominee has to follow and they are:
– Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their website.
– Put the award logo on your blog.
– Answer the ten questions they’ve set out for you.
– Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
– Nominate ten people!

I’ve got the first and second part done! Let’s move on to answering Z’s questions!

1) Cheese or crackers or cheese AND crackers?
– Cheese AND crackers, always!

2)Favourite dessert?
– Something simple like a chocolate cake or chocolate brownies.

3) Favourite vegetable?
– Mmmmmm, I’m gonna say tomatoes. I eat them like apples.

4) Flats or heels?
– I guess flats? Do converse shoes categorize as flat shoes? I don’t wear high heels at all.

5) Milkshakes or smoothies?
– Milkshakes! Vanilla milkshake! Mmm!  ❤

6) Favourite flower?
– Probably roses or daisys… Roses are romantic but daisys are so friendly.

7) Tea or coffee?
– Tea, all the way, everyday! Not all kinds of tea’s, but I love mint tea, I think it’s my favorite.

8) What song(s) are you listening to right now?
-Currently nothing, but I’ve been hitting repeat on “Your guardian angel’ by Abandon All ships. It gives me butterflies!

9) Loliipops?! You likey?
– Actually no. :c

10) Favourite TV shows?
– Oh gosh… Generally speaking, I had a very long period where I was obnoxiously obsessed with Two and A Half Men, it’s one of tops. The walking dead, I love everything TWD. I love The Cosby Show, Game of Thrones… There’s plenty.

3 rules are covered!

Now for my questions, I want to make them goooood!

1. Your favorite animals?
2. One of your biggest fears?
3. One pet peeve you have?
4. Something you do you wish you could change?
4. Favorite drink(s)?
5. Skiing or bungee jumping?
6. Do you enjoy anime?
7. Do you like experimenting with food, trying new things?
8. One guilty pleasure?
9. Favorite book?
10. Your most enjoyable hobby outside of blogging?

Hehe, so goooood, right? Basically things I like to know about anyone I meet.

Now comes a point where I’m kind of stuck, the final step; Nominate 10 people.
Why stuck? Is because I’ve been here for a quite short time,  and I’ve TRULY found amazing blogs and I honestly feel I can’t pile them up in a double-digit number.
Ones that caught my attention very fast.
In no order;
