Blogger Appreciation Award

Thank you so much to Karalee for nominating me for this one, I really appreciate it. You should go check out her post about this same award thingy by clicking here. It’s worth the read, I promise.

The Rules:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their site
  2. Write a paragraph of something positive about yourself
  3. Nominate and notify as many bloggers as you wish
  4. Use the award image

Something positive about myself:

I am a quick learner and I always try to find more efficient ways to do things. I have always learned things fairly quickly and I always try to set good routines for myself to make work or school less stressful. I don’t always religiously follow it by any means, but setting down the groundwork really helps with everything else. Without good habits it’s difficult to learn, it’s difficult to get things done and the result will be less than favorable compared to what I could truly do. I don’t think I would be learning as fast if I didn’t keep the same habits, and there’s always room for a change to make it more efficient.

 

Mystery Blogger Award

Thank you so much to Rei for nominating me for another one of these! You can read her post about this same award by clicking here. I really enjoyed reading her answers to the questions she received.

  • What word would you use to define your sense of fashion ?

Shuffle the music tag

Thank you so much to Michala over at Andhonestly for nominating me! I’m usually the one to nominate her so this was a fun change hehe. Go check out her blog, it’s one of my favorites.

The Rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog
2. Shuffle your entire music library and talk about the FIRST FIFTEEN songs that come up
3. Mention the songs as well as the artists
4. Tag 7 people or more to do this tag and let them know

The music:

  1. Pvris – Anyone else
    I think this is probably my most favorite song from their newest album. I love the music video, with its interesting visuals and interpretive dance and just everything about it makes it my fave.
  2. Pvris – Heaven
    And then this one is probably my least favorite. I think it was because it was the one they used in youtube ads the most and it just got overexposed for me.
  3. Angels & Airwaves – Some origins of fire
    This is one of the songs I listen to the most in the mornings. It’s really chill but it also gets me a bit hyped for the day that is to come so to me it’s the perfect song for early mornings.
  4. Daughter – The end
    This song reminds me of a rather painful time of my life so it’s very bittersweet to listen to. I’m relieved the time is over but I’m still resenting everything about it so much. It’s a really good song though, definitely worth a listen if you’re into that kind of music.
  5. Highly Suspect – My name is human
    This was the first song I listened to by them, and it holds a special place in my heart. I love how they kind of just question our entire existence.
  6. Daughter – A hole in the earth
    This song talks about how one carries pain inside of them and that they wish someone could make sense of it. It speaks to me on many levels. I like it.
  7. Fall out boy – The last of the real ones
    Sooo Fall out boy used to be a massive obsession of mine for many years, starting in 2003. This is kinda different from the style they had but I feel like it suits me more in the situation I am in now. I probably wouldn’t have liked it ten years ago.
  8. Meg Myers – Motel
    One of the first songs I listened to by her and it has stayed as one of my favorites until this day.
  9. Baron Bane – How does it feel to let go
    I listened to this after a bad break up and it has stayed with me since. It really helped me to cope with everything and I don’t think I would ever remove it from my playlist.
  10. Angels & Airwaves – Anomaly
    Another song that I listen to in the morning. It’s kind of upbeat and kind of sad at the same time, it’s weird but in a very good way.
  11. Blink 182 – I miss you
    This is one of my favorite songs of all time. The music video is amazing with it’s 1920’s visuals and movie vibes and the melody is great. I know it all by heart and I can’t help but to sing along whenever it plays.
  12. Tom DeLonge – Animals
    I don’t know what to say about this one, I just love it a whole lot. I don’t know if it is concerning that Tom has earned four spots on this list so far.
  13. Echos – Silhouettes
    This was an accidental find because I was supposed to listen to their song ‘tomorrow’ but I didn’t remember what it was called at the time. I instantly fell in love with this one though.
  14. Taylor Swift – …ready for it?
    I used to love ‘look what you made me to’ until I listened to this and immediately abandoned the other one. This one is so good and I really like the music video too.
  15. Monakr – Wherever
    I found this on my release radar, or was it weekly discovery list on spotify? Good find though, I like it a whole lot!

My nominees:

  1. Halsdoll
  2. Lisa
  3. Hitherdither
  4. Grace
  5. DanniiJane

Plus Karalee and Rei but they were also nominated by Michala.

3 things about me

  • For a long time I was able to use my left hand just as well as my right. I had shattered my pinky finger on my right hand and had to learn to use my left while it was healing and in a cast.
  • My hair has been every color of the rainbow and more, except for blue. Not sure why it has never been that color though, it’s really pretty!
  • The thought of having cotton or paper anywhere near my mouth really freaks me out.. And it always makes dentist visits weird because they use cotton things to soak up any saliva or blood..

 Questions from Abby

  1. What’s your favourite thing about blogging? Being able to express my thoughts however I want, whenever I want.
  2. Whose someone you would like to meet? There are a lot of people, mostly those I have gotten to know through blogging, they are all so sweet! I’m really awkward in real life though, so I would probably scare them off.
  3. If you could be any animal what would you be and why? I would be a cat! All they do is sleeping, eating or receiving cuddles.. Sounds perfect!
  4. What would be your ideal Sunday? Writing blog posts, sipping on some sparkling water, listening to music then read for a while.
  5. Favourite Disney Movie? Hmm, I don’t watch a lot of movies, but I do enjoy Anastasia.

Questions from Nilsa

  1. What’s your favourite quote? This is from a video game, a bit silly but it has stuck with me for quite a few years. “Na via lerno victoria” It is in Tevene, the language of the Tevinter Imperium in Dragon Age. The quote means “Only the living know victory”.
  2. Do you have a celebrity crush? 
    Yes? Kinda? Does Ryan Haywood count as a celebrity? He’s oh so dumb but also lovely. And he lost his marbles a long time ago.

  3. What’s your least favourite thing about blogging? The spam comments… they’re so tiring to go through and to delete.
  4. Are you named after anyone? No, none that I know of!
  5. Scary movie or happy endings? And why? I prefer happy endings to scary movies, but my favorites are those movies where you don’t really know how it ends, it just leaves you with a million questions.

My questions for you

  1. If you could rearrange the seasons, in what order would you have them?
  2. Say, you get the chance to go to a different planet, would you do it?
  3. What is your favorite make up brand?
  4. What was your goal when you started blogging? Did/have you achieved it?
  5. Have you met anyone famous in real life? What was it like?

My best post

I’m not sure about this one! The one that has the most comments currently is “26 things I have learned in 26 years“.

 

I nominate anyone who reads this, so tag, you’re it! I’ve nominated so many people for this lately so if you want to do this, go ahead! I don’t want to end up nominating the same people over and over. 🙂

 3 things about me

  • I love Autumn, it makes me feel so at peace. I love it when it gets darker, when the leaves fall down and the world just prepares itself for winter. I love cozy sweaters, thick stockings, hot chocolate and anything else related to Autumn.
  • I don’t really give up easily, but I often feel defeated.
  • I can’t stand to talk on the phone. I hate talking to people over voice but not being able to see their reaction to what I say.

Questions from Grace

  • What inspired you to start a blog? The possibility of having a creative outlet. I’ve been reading blogs for years and finally decided I wanted one of my own so that I could share reviews and my thoughts on a variety of subjects.
  • How are you feeling today? I’m feeling okay! Been feeling a bit under the weather lately but it is picking up again. I’m also slightly nervous about a meeting I have to go to about work opportunities tomorrow.
  • What film can you watch over and over without getting bored of it? Howl’s moving castle. It has been my favorite film for so long and I don’t think I will ever get bored of it ever.
  • Someone that you admire and why? I admire all of the people out there fighting for their rights. No one deserves to be oppressed, to have their rights revoked or being treated like a lesser human being.
  • What is your favourite food? Good question! I feel like anything pasta or anything that has to do with potatoes. They are both very versatile food items and you can make a big variety of meals with them. I don’t really have one particular dish that I like the most.

My best post(s)

What goes into this one? The ones that have done well statistically or posts that I personally like the most? I guess I can link the ones that have received the most comments over the past year and a half.

My questions for you

  • What would be the title of your autobiography?
  • Is there an album you feel like totally represents you?
  • Is there a movie franchise (or just a single movie) you would love to be in?
  • If you had the chance to see yourself from someone else’s perspective, would you do it?
  • Have you ever thought about owning an exotic pet?

wp-1469551589140

Thank you so much to Siyana for nominating me in her post! She is trying to reach a thousand followers in August so go check her blog out if you’re interested!

  • Answer the 11 questions that the blogger asked you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs and write 11 new questions for them.
  • List the rules and display the logo of sunshine blog award in your post.

 

Questions from Siyana:

  1. If you could swap with a celebrity for a week, who would that be and why?
    Well, you know, I’d want to swap lives with Gordon Ramsay. Not mainly because of the cooking, but because he gets paid to be angry. I feel angry often so I wouldn’t mind getting paid to yell at people. 
  2. Do you prefer to skip lunch or dinner?
    I don’t really skip meals, but if I had to pick one, I would skip lunch.
  3. What’s your favourite ice cream flavor?
    Coconut! And vanilla.. I’m really boring, mostly because that’s the only dairy free ice cream flavors I can find. 
  4. What’s the thing you like about yourself?
    My determination, I guess? I rarely give up on something, which can be both good and bad. 
  5. Is there a thing you want to change in yourself (both appearance and personality)?
    I want to remove the entire depression part of me that has been with me for over a decade. Just being happy and care free would be nice.
  6. What are your favourite types of posts to read?
    I love reading about people’s experiences.. And hauls.. and anything about books! There’s a lot, I read pretty much everything in my reader feed so my taste is very varied.
  7. What does your blog mean about you?
    My blog is like a creative outlet, a safe space for me to write about anything I want, so to me my blog is like.. a safe haven? I’m not quite sure how to word it. 
  8. If you had to delete your blog, how would you react?
    I would be slightly upset and also awfully bored since I’d lose my biggest and most entertaining hobby. 
  9. What’s your favourite lipstick shade?
    Just going to make it simple and just say Mauve in general. That or something like oxblood. 
  10. If you have to go out wearing only one make up product – what would that be?
    Eyebrow pencil. I don’t care about the rest of my face as long as my brows look good! 
  11. What did you eat last night?
