Before any of you begin to complain/unfollow/ditch my blog, I know, I know that I promised to do some actual blogging today. And I was planning to do that, except a little something got in the way. A little something being THE FIRST BLOG AWARD I EVER RECEIVED. I have – surprisingly, astoundingly, bafflingly (yes, I know that’s not a word) – been nominated for the ‘One Lovely Blog Award’, by the amazing and lovely Heroic Endeavors, run by Hero. Tons of thank you’s, online hugs and kisses to her, and please do check out her blog – she’s a wonderful blogger, writer and cellist, and I know you’ll all love her just as much as I do : D.

Anyhow, moving right along. As with any other blog award, this one comes with rules. The requirements are as follows:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you on their blog.
  2. Describe 7 things about yourself.
  3. Nominate 15 other blogs, and inform them of their nomination.

So, here goes.

Thank you so much to Hero (whose blog I’ve already linked to above – and you all should definitely click the link. Her blog is brilliant), who I really appreciate for following and actually reading/commenting on my posts. It’s very rare for me to be able to find someone who shares the same interests at me, so imagine my surprise when I stumbled on Hero who – like me – plays the cello, writes, and loves Artemis Fowl. She has nominated me for my first blog award ever, and for that I’m joyously grateful. Her blog is simply amazing and I can imagine myself continuing to stalk her posts for years to come :).

Seven things about myself:

1. I am a mix of everything.

I’m a French/Japanese teenager who’s spent my primary and secondary school years in a British curriculum, and will be spending my university years following the American curriculum. I have lived in 7 countries, visited 15, and will most likely continue hopping from continent to continent, unless a certain fictional character comes to life and persuades me to remain with him for the rest of my life. I absolutely love music, writing and the arts, but I’m also pretty good (now we’re entering that dangerous bragging territory) at the Sciences and Maths. I can write with both hands (and that’s about the only trick I can do, unless you count raising one eyebrow – a quirk I’m very proud of). People can never get my age right because I have a young appearance and an adult’s voice – imagine a baby with your teacher’s voice – and they often think I’m either 12 or 20. I also really like eating chocolates and spicy noodles (not together, of course). I’m also extremely pessimistic and optimistic at the same time. Basically I have the most cheerful outlook on life – the way I see it, “everything will be fine in the end” because the good guys should always win – but I enjoy pointing out the negative aspects of things (take ;Friday; for instance; what part of that song has a positive side?)

2. I get obsessed really easily.

Whether it be a song, an actor/actress, a fictional character, whatever. When I start getting addicted, I really get addicted. If it’s a song, I’ll rape the replay button for days. If it’s an actor/actress, I’ll google till my fingers go numb, stalk until my eyes go red, and by the end of the week I could tell you everything about him/her – from best movie to favourite type of shoe. If it’s a fictional charcter, well, I’ll google the info, then I’ll move on to fanfictions, then I’ll daydream, and then finally I’ll write my own fanfictions (be grateful I don’t post them up here). The funny thing is, these obsessions only last about a week or so, and then they’re quickly replaced by new ones.

3. I don’t really know much about myself.

It’s only the third point, and I’m already out of things to say. I… um… really like dogs? I like to sing in the shower? I like to fantasize about being a superhero? (I used to imagine villains flying through windows during boring classes, and I’d whip off my school uniform to uncover my ninja outfit inside. Then I’d reveal my ninja powers and save the entire school, without anyone ever seeing my face – because I’m too ninja for them to spot me :P).

4. I have a pretty good metabolism.

I eat like a pig (people eat 3 meals a day. I eat 5 – and that doesn’t even count snacks) but I’m still pretty average weight. I mean, my parents still complain – but that’s only because I keep finishing all the food in the house – but really I’m not completely obese. I weigh around 42 kilos (which is pretty standard for people my height), and I’m pretty muscular – don’t get me wrong, I’m no Thor, but I’m just not all floppy – because of all the skating I do.

5. I have 3 brothers.

They’re all older than me, and they’re all capable of being real jerks. Then again, so am I. One – the youngest – is a really cheerful person. He’s too cheerful, to be honest. He’s always happy-go-lucky, always smiling, and he’ll never take you seriously. Not even when your dog dies and you start crying, no, he’ll still be laughing and making jokes about how good ol’ Coco should rest in pieces. The second youngest can actually be considered nice, if he weren’t so moody. One second he’ll be really sweet, and the next he starts shouting at you for entering his room or standing in his way or something. The oldest is just completely cruel and has an evil, cold sense of humour. I don’t even want to describe him.

6. I have a really eclectic taste in music.

On the one hand, I love classical music to bits (especially songs written during the Romantic period). On the other hand, I also adore songs from artists like Adele, Lady Gaga, Maroon 5, Jimmy Wong (you guys have to Youtube him. He’s amazing), and the list goes on. So imagine the look of surprise people get when I tell them I also love listening to Linkin Park, Queen, and Nickleback, or when they find out most of the music on my iPod is heavy metal.

7. I’m actually nice.

I know, I know. Unbelievable right? But honestly, I can be a pretty nice person… sometimes. *evil grin*

Anyway. Before I end up boring you all even further, let us move on to the last and most important part. THE LUCKY NOMINEES. *DUN DUN DUNN* To be honest, I’ve only been here a month or so, so I doubt I even know 15 people. Therefore, I’m going to provide you a list of blogs that include wordpress blogs, bloggers, tumblrs (people actually make text posts now and again) and maybe even twitters (short text posts are still text posts, no?). I know it’s going into dangerous territory, but I promise I’ll do better for my next award (if I even get another award, that is :S)

So, I hereby present to you the nominees.

  1. Six Words
  2. Musings From Neville’s Navel
  3. Insert Witticism Here
  4. Anya Violetta
  5. Sanity Fair
  6. Time To Be Happy Again
  7. Cut Up Piano And Xylophone
  8. How The Hours Must Fly By
  9. Jim Moriarty (no, it’s not actually him. But the tumblr’s still brilliant : D)
  10. Bassism
  11. Jas
  12. Jelectrify
  13. Clotildajamcracker
  14. This World Is A Lucid Reverie

Aand.. I’m out. I do realise that very few of the above blogs are wordpress blogs (and that tumblrs dominate), but hey, all the blogs I wanted to nominate from wordpress were already nominated. Take Hero, for instance. And Liam too probably. Also, I love all of you (my wonderful stalkers followers) equally, so it’s kind of hard to randomly pick 15 o.o. Which is why I’ve decided to pick the people who actually comment/talk to me : D. Because hey, everyone likes to talk right? No? Sorry :c. I’ll do better next time, I promise! So, anyway, lets have a round of applause. Whoop de doo. Congratulations guys, you are now… on my blog.

Right, this is by far my longest post ever, and as you can see the quality of writing is gradually getting worse. I’m also getting really tired, which means I’ll probably notify all these lucky bloggers tomorrow. And I shall stop writing. Now.

Adios!

*EDIT: I’ve made three additions to my list of nominees – I was pretty tired when I originally made this post, so somehow I forgot to add them in. Sorry guys :S. But you’re in there now : D.

It’s only the first week into summer holiday’s and already my schedule is a mess. I have appointments overlapping with university classes that are overlapping beach trips. I’m VERY behind on camp nanowrimo – so behind, in fact that any chance I had of winning have pretty much been puffed out. I also haven’t prepared at all for this debate tournament coming up in two weeks, and I have a dance coming up this Sunday which I haven’t prepared for either. Basically everything is a mess, I’m somehow even more disorganized than usual, and even I don’t know when I have free time anymore. Not only that, but I’ve missed the dates of numerous events and functions that are pretty important – take my own leaving party, for instance. And when you’re so all over the place that you miss your own leaving party, you know you’re in trouble.

The root of the problem is that I’m naturally a messy, disorganized and forgetful person. Just take a look into my bedroom and you’ll know what I’m talking about. No, it isn’t like those clean, comfy rooms you see in adverts. It’s sort of like the aftermath of an earthquake – with bits strewn all over the floor and things stuffed carelessly where they don’t belong. And that’s from MY point of view – from my mum’s point of view, it looks like a war zone. My bedroom is the reason why people doubt my ability to survive on my own (“How on earth will you find your clothes? How will you remember where you put the food?”)

My messy nature was okay when I was a highschooler, but now that I’m going to University things will probably have to change. Thus, I have decided to take action. Today I am going out and buying myself an organizer. Come to think of it, I should probably get myself a pencil too. In fact, today I shall make sure my pencil case actually has stationary in it, as opposed to bits of scrap paper full of useless doodles.

Wish me luck in my quest to function properly in society!

Adios!

A Very Late Introduction

Hello! : D.

It is now 10pm, and being the boring loner I am, I have decided to stay in and write strange things about myself, instead of go out and party the way normal people do when exams are over. Yep, that’s me in a nutshell: that weird girl with a peculiar attachment to her computer.

That aside, I figured it was about time I started actually using this blog (considering I created it over a month ago), and seeing as I’ve got nothing better to do (except maybe scroll through tumblr like an antisocial zombie), I’ve decided to start… well, now.

So, moving right along. I’m Mo, 17 year old procrastinator extraordinaire with a strange obsession for food and dogs. I laugh too much, crack lame jokes and like to quote random sources (usually fictional) out of the blue. I enjoy drinking tea and chocolate, talking about things that are completely irrelevant, and singing along to songs on the radio (especially if I don’t know the words). Here you shall find my thoughts and rants on unrelated things that are somehow related to my life (or at least, that I believe are related to my life on some level). I am oftentimes sarcastic, and usually make bold statements that cannot be proven true, which leaves me open to criticism. However, when I do get criticized, I tend to retaliate with intense anger and many foot stomps, which pushes people to a resigned acceptance of my strangeness. Chances are, I probably suffer from some form of disorder or another, but that disorder probably has not been discovered yet. All in all, I am a complete freak of nature, yet I’m perfectly happy with the way I am. I’m a rarity, after all.

I do not expect anyone to follow or read this blog, but if you’re bored and end up doing so, I hope you enjoy wasting your time with me.

Adios!
