The Happiness Tag

August 7, 2017 — 17 Comments

I was tagged in this by my friend Rylie, but she didn’t want her blog linked because she writes about very personal subjects so I’m afraid I can’t do that! But thank you for the nomination either way, I really appreciate it.


The rules for this tag

  • List five things that makes you happy
  • Share five songs that makes you happy
  • Tag at least five bloggers that makes you happy

What makes me happy

  1. My cats. I don’t know what I would have done without them. They are always there if I need someone to vent to (even though they can’t talk back, I still talk to them about anything I need to). They are always there if I need something to hold, something to cuddle with to cheer me up. I love them more than anything in this world. They say cats are selfish but mine are far from it.
  2. Books. I love being able to read. Being able to escape to another world for a little while. Same goes for video games. Escapism is very much a real thing for me and a lot of the time it happens without me even noticing.
  3. Being able to connect with people all over the world. I live in a place with very few people and meeting new people is a difficult task. That is why I am so grateful for having the internet, being able to connect with others without having to travel to a place to do so. I guess ‘without restrictions’ is what I meant to say.
  4. Nature. Nature makes me happy. I love being outside, I love exploring the woods, walking through fields, picking the occasional berry as I walk past them. Nature is wonderful and the fresh air can always make you feel better. (Apart from during the pollen season, I always feel like death then).
  5. Being organized, that always makes me happy. I hate being messy, I hate not having things neatly put in place. Having a clean and organized home is my favorite feeling. It really helps me with feeling accomplished in life. Doesn’t matter how messy my head is as long as my home is clean.

Five songs that makes me happy

I don’t really have any overly joyful happy songs, so I’ll share some that makes me feel content, makes me feel wholesome. I think I have shared all of these before, but my favorites rarely change.

  1. Pvris – Half
  2. Meg Myers – Motel
  3. Blink 182 – I Miss you
  4. Highly Suspect – Bath Salts
  5. Chaos Chaos – Do you feel it

Five bloggers that makes me happy

I guess it’s more than 5, oops. And in no particular order.

  1. Michala
  2. Karalee
  3. Reeva
  4. Rei
  5. Storm
  6. Grace
  7. DanniiJane ( you can just share your response in the comments, it probably doesnt fit in with the travel blogs 🙂 )
  8. Abby
  9. Lisa (hey this isn’t an award! 🙂 )

Thank you so much to Rei for nominating me for this! The last time I was nominated was in May, which was quite some time ago! I always struggle with these kinds of posts though, because I never find facts about myself to be interesting enough to post! But I will try my best!

Rules :

You have to thank the person who nominated you for this award and provide a link to their blog.

Link the nominees and inform them about their nomination.

Nominate at least 15 bloggers of your choice

Share 7 facts about yourself.

7 facts about me:

  1. I am currently obsessed with ASMR videos! There is just something about them that gives me the greatest tingly feeling and they are so incredibly relaxing! This is my current favorite of the bunch:
  2. I am really introverted and I struggle a lot with social anxiety, so I spend most of my free time outside of work by myself. But sometimes I just force myself to go into town, to visit the mall, just to socialize with people.
  3. I am a very light sleeper! The smallest sound could wake me up, which is why i prefer living away from the city, out in the countryside where it’s more quiet. When i lived in the city, seagulls woke me up at 5 AM every morning and I absolutely hated it!
  4. At the age of 25 and a half, I still have no idea what I want to do in life! I feel like it’s too late to decide and that I should just find a mediocre job to settle in to, but I don’t want to do that at all.
  5. I love reading, drawing, painting and so on, but I always forget to purchase craft supplies so I rarely get to unleash my creativity.
  6. Even if Norwegian is my first language, I always prefer to speak English instead. I don’t know why I am like that but I feel way more comfortable using a different language than my own.
  7. Over the years I have kind of lost my love for gaming a little bit, but I do have these regular cycles where I play a lot, then not so much, then back to playing a lot again. But I did lose the passion for most of my hobbies when my ex and I went separate ways a year ago.

There seems to be two varieties of this award floating around, one about how you started your blog, and another of your journey as a blogger. I have been nominated for this particular variety once before, so i’ll redo my answer and elaborate on it!


Rules:
-Thank the blogger who nominated you while providing a link to the blog site.
-Discuss the reason for starting the blog and talk a little bit about it.
-Give 2 advices to fellow bloggers/readers.
-Nominate 15 bloggers who you think deserve this accolade.
-Inform all the nominees by commenting on their blog.

Why I started my blog:

I needed a place to put my thoughts at first, but then i started feeling a bit uncomfortable with sharing so much of them. I don’t like sharing too much of my personal life online, because I have had really bad experiences with it throughout the years. So then, since I had been writing product reviews for a survey page for quite some time beforehand and i realized i loved it, I incorporated that into my blogging instead. I’m really happy that i did because this is still keeping my interest after a few months, something that rarely happens. My blog is now a good mixture between reviews, posts about games, make up, books and whatnot. Hopefully that is still interesting to people.

Advice to new bloggers:

  1. Do not get hung up on the numbers.You might get a lot of visits and likes one day, then fewer the next. That is just how the algorithms work, people are online at certain times, on certain days. Plus if you keep a regular schedule, you will of course get the most views on the days when your posts are published.
  2. Write for yourself, write what makes you happy. Don’t change just because you feel like others expect you to, keep doing you and the people who like that will come around. But if you feel unhappy with your content and you need to change it, don’t worry about what others might think and just do it.
  3. Don’t blog to be ‘famous’, blog because it’s fun.
  4. Take good use of the community! Comment on blogs, like posts, interact with others, you’ll make great acquaintances!

As for nominations, I’ll nominate whoever reads this because I have done this four times now and I don’t want to accidentally re-nominate someone who did this recently! So, you’re next!
