Posts Tagged ‘award’

So I was idly stalking some of my favourite blogs today, when I stumbled upon a fascinating piece of information. I discovered that I have – to my utter astonishment – been nominated for another blog award! (The “Amazeballs Blogger Award”, to be precise). Now, I realise that this probably means nothing to most of you, but to me it feels like I’ve found buried treasure. I’m fully aware that I’ve been pretty inactive lately (sorry… I’m on vacation and the internet is really unpredictable. Which reminds me, I have to write a rant on that soon), which has naturally lead to a few unfollowers, so this is really just the motivation I needed to get me up and posting again.

The flood of thank you’s, online hugs and kisses go to Nevillegirl – who runs Musings From Neville’s Navel – this time, and it shouldn’t be at all surprising that I was stalking her blog in the first place. She is truly a fantastic blogger, and you all should definitely go check out/follow her blog – pretty soon you’ll be stalking her like I do ;).

Moving right along. Like most other blog awards, this one comes with it’s set of requirements (when will someone make an award that doesn’t come with requirements?!), so, here goes…

THE RULES:

  1. You must link to the blog you received the award from.
  2. You must answer all the questions.
  3. You must pass it onto at least one other Amazeballs Blogger, the more the merrier.
  4. You must remember to tell the recipients that you nominated them, whether by commenting on their blogs, PMing them if you know them on a different site, or other methods.
  5. You must be amazeballs!

So, here we go.

QUESTIONS:

Oh dear, these are by far the hardest questions for me to answer… I have too many favourite things! It’s absurd that anyone would expect me to just pick ONE for each category…

1. What are you favourite song lyrics?

Hmm… I obsess over things pretty easily, so naturally my favourite song lyrics changes all the time… But for now it’s probably “TONIIIIIIGHT, WE ARE YOUNG! SO LET’S SET THE WORLD ON FIIRE, WE CAN BURN BRIIGHTER, THAN THE SUUUUN!” from “We Are Young“, by Fun featuring Janelle Monae. It has quite a catchy beat (the sort that makes you feel like howling the lyrics at the top of your voice during the chorus) and it’s also the song of this year’s graduating class. Hope you guys enjoy…

2. What is your favourite book/book series?

If it’s a book then honestly I could sit here thinking for hours, and still not come up with any… I love reading far too much to pick a favourite book out of the hundreds I’ve read. But if we’re talking about a book series, then no question my favourites would be Artemis Fowl (Eoin Colfer), Harry Potter (J.K. Rowling) and CHERUB! (Robert Muchamore). I grew up reading those books, am still reading them (which goes to show that I haven’t actually finished growing up yet), and they will probably stay with me till I grow old, wither and die.

3. What is your favourite movie/TV Series?

My favourite movie? Oh, that’ll be THE AVENGERS, definitely. No question about it. I’ve watched it three times in the cinema, and plan to torrent it once a good dvdrip comes out. And when I do torrent it, I’ll probably watch it another three times on my own, and maybe another two times with friends. Yup, that’s a movie that’ll stay with me forever. My favourite TV series is BBC’s modern version of Sherlock Holmes. Not sure if I’ve mentioned this, but I’m a huge fan of BBC’s Sherlock Holmes (and Sherlock Holmes in general, actually). I absolutely adore all the actors, the series is hilarious and captivating, and I’ve watched all the episodes twice. You should all definitely go look it up on sidereel.com and watch it because it is simply AMAZING.

4. Who inspires you?

A lot of people. Mainly authors, epic musicians, my mum, random cosplayers… Basically I admire a lot of people, and I get inspired by almost anyone, sometimes even strangers…

5. What is your dream job?

When I’m talking to grown-ups, my “sensible” answer is I want to be a Clinical Psychologist, or Child Psychology. Really though, my aspirations go from fabulous rock star to intergalactic princess… So yeah, my future is still undecided.

OUCH I JUST GOT BITTEN BY SOME RANDOM INSECT MY DAY IS RUINED.

Anyway… Moving on to my nominations…

DUN DUN DUNN

  1. Kylie, at Six Words
  2. Amira, at Amira’s Nightmare
  3. Jas, at Jelectrify (Yes I know this is a tumblr, and I know there isn’t much text on it… But she’s one of my closest friends and her blog is just… amazeballs. It’s centered around fashion, and I guess perhaps fashion isn’t my usual topic… But hey, even I have a girly side).

I know there are only three, but the other bloggers I wanted to nominate (like Hero and Liam) have already been nominated… But hey, two is more than one (no kidding) so I’ve met the requirements ;).

That’s all for today, I suppose.

Adios!

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.
