I logged into my email accounts to find notifications saying that my blog has been linked in several posts. Say what? Why were people talking about me? I clicked on the links and I found out that Meghan and Louis had nominated me for a blog award! Thank you, so, so much. Both of you are great bloggers and I’m touched that you would think of me when nominating people for this award! So, what blog award am I talking about? The Liebster award… of course 😉 They’re originally meant to go to blogs who have two hundred followers or less, but we’ll just overlook that rule. I don’t have my stats anywhere, but I have a grand total of three hundred and twenty-one subscribers (including, but not limited to, ten email subscribers). You guys are nothing short of awesome. The big, bad rules:
- Post the award on your blog.
- Thank the blogger who presented this award and link back to their blog.
- Write 11 random facts about yourself. (I’m not going to do this because I’ll be answering two sets of questions.)
- Nominate 11 bloggers who you feel deserve this award and who have less than 200 followers.
- Answer 11 questions posted by the presenter and ask your nominees 11 questions.
What’s your middle name, and do you like it? My middle name is Victoria, and I love it. I think it is such a beautiful name. Victoria is the feminine form of victorious or from the Latin meaning of victory. I don’t mind which one is correct because I think both of those meanings are pretty similar pretty great.
What’s your favorite day of the week? My favorite day of the week is definitely Sunday. I don’t know why, but that is always the day that I feel the most relaxed and stress-free. Today happens to be Sunday. Coincidence? Well, probably.
If you could travel to any country in the world right now, where would you go and why? France. I know a lot of people hate the French, but I have a bit of a soft spot for them 😉 I have a few friends scattered throughout France and I want to go visit them one day.
What is your dream job? Journalist or public relation professional or travel writer or housewife. Kidding about the last one.
Are you working towards achieving your dream job? If not, why not? Well, trying. I’m at university so that’s something, right?
Are you happy with your life right now? Holy hell these questions are deep. Yes, I am. Are there things I wish I could be doing? Well, yes, but they take time, money and (typically) a degree and I am significantly lacking in two of those factors.
What does your perfect day look like? Right now? A full day of sleeping. I am beyond tired. I guess that’s not the answer you were looking for though, so I’ll say this: breakfast in bed with coffee and the newspaper, maybe sail or fly somewhere and have a picnic with alllllllll the alcohol any twenty-something could possibly want then go home to have a lazy afternoon in bed 😉 That sounds like a great day to me.
What are you most appreciative of in your life? My health, friends and family. Those are the three things that I definitely can’t take for granted.
What do you think has been your best blog post to date? I honestly have no idea. I don’t have any ‘favourite’ ones that I can pick out either. All of them are glimpses into my life, so it’s hard to say which piece of my life had the biggest impact on someone or I found the best to write.
What are you hoping that your blog achieves? Again, I have no idea. This was started as a place for me to vent. Never did I ever think that people would actually be interested enough in my ramblings to follow my blog. I hope that I can keep blogging through my university career and into my first ‘real world’ job. Fingers crossed.
What other hobbies do you have outside of blogging? Photography, writing, running, driving any and every type of car, reading…I could ramble on and on. I promise that I have a life outside of the blogosphere 😉
What do you want to be when you “grow up”. Imagine a world with no limits. A world where you can be and do anything. Honestly? I would probably want to get this hotel up and running. It’s a hotel that is based on a BDSM dungeon. Do I have your attention now? 😉 Other things I would want to do is have my own PR firm, my own publishing offices or create my own magazine from scratch. If all else fails, I can just be a princess.
What’s your favourite colour? I would say muted teal or a wine red. I love the darker colours. They aren’t so ‘in your face’ as others.
What’s your favourite holiday? Um, pass? I can honestly say that I don’t have a favourite one. Actually, I’m lying. My favourite holiday is any one that gives us a day off! So, 90% of them. Ha. Wicked.
Do you have siblings? If so, do you guys get along? I have one sister, three step brothers and a step sister. I like to think that we all get along 🙂
Tell me something on your bucket list! I really, really, really want to travel to one country in every continent. Actually, travel makes up a lot of my bucket list.
What are your greatest fears? Heights, spiders and the ocean.
What is something weird that you do on a regular basis? Talk to myself? I don’t know. Is that even classified as ‘weird’ anymore? I also have to drive with my window down (rain or shine) and the volume on the radio has to be set to an even number otherwise I feel unbalanced.
Oh yeah, I’m a total nutjob.
Do you think you will ever get married? …Probably not. I think “marriage” and my body gets this automatic NOPE response. I’m open to the idea, but I just don’t see it happening for me.
If you could snap your fingers and have one thing appear in front of you this very instant what would it be and why? My man friend 😉
What have you eaten today? Weetbix with sugar and milk, and my standard cup of coffee. (Of course). That was followed by a cocktail of drugs so I don’t throw up, have a headache or just generally die from not being able to breathe. Good times.
What inspires you? Everything. Inspiration is everywhere if you take the time to look.
My eleven questions:
- What motivated you to start blogging?
- If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
- If you could only have one thing on a deserted island, what would it be?
- Tell us three things that you like about yourself.
- What type of character would you be in a horror movie? (The one who runs towards the noise, the one who fights the “bad guy”, the one who hides under the bed (and dies), the one who calls 911 but the phone is dead, the one who injures themselves trying to get away, the person who actually gets away OR the badass who is causing all the havoc.)
- What would you title your memoir?
- Describe your perfect date.
- If you had to live on one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
- Do you believe in fate?
- What is one of your favourite blogs?
- What would you do if you had ten million dollars?
Props if anyone managed to read this far. Holy hell. I hope everyone had a good weekend and I’m still looking for guest bloggers if you want to write a post (or ten) for me!
