My dearest stalkers, I bring you good news today! Very good news.

Admittedly this piece of “good news” probably won’t matter to many of you, but to me it’s as if I’d just had a shot of pure gold (which is kind of impossible, when you think about it, because I could die… But whatever). My dear friends, I know this is unbelievable, incredible, implausible… BUT, somehow… despite my lazy blogging attitude… I GOT NOMINATED FOR ANTHER AWARD!!! You know what this calls for: THE HAPPY DANCE. weeeee *dances*.

What makes all this even more surprising, is the person who nominated me. Ladies and Gents, I present to you my nominator: The witty, quirky, funny Liam! In all seriousness, this means a lot more to me than just a small award. It has never ever crossed my mind that THE HEAD PHIL would ever pick me to receive one of his awards, and the fact that he did just sends me over the moon (and back, so I can write this post. Unfortunately the moonbeings haven’t yet discovered the internet and it’s wonders. It’s a good thing really; once they do, their souls shall be consumed forever, and they’ll be doomed to a lifetime of blogging and sleepless nights). Normally at this point I’d send virtual thank you’s, hugs, kisses and brightly coloured happy things. However, I’m sure most of us know of Liam’s dislike for brightly coloured things (and I doubt he’d appreciate the hugs), so instead I’ll just give him a formal “Thank you” and a gratuitous tip of the head. Honestly though, all jokes aside, Liam is an amazing blogger. His posts are always full of good humour and never fail to entertain me. Go check his blog out, but be sure to do it when you haven’t got much homework, because once you enter you’ll be so captivated by all the awesome that you won’t be able to leave. You have been warned.

Now, like all other awards, this one comes with rules. I’ll try to follow them. I’ll try.

The Rules:

  1. Thank the person who gave you the award.
  2. Answer the 5 questions given to you, and ask the next person 5 new questions.
  3. Award 5 people.
  4. Post the rules.

I’ve already thanked Liam twice, but just in case he missed it, here it is again: Thank you Liam *tips head*.

Now for the questions.

1. Say a letter was mailed to you one day– what would you wish to be in it?

I don’t think I even need to answer this one. I have been waiting for this letter ever since I was 13. If I ever received a letter by mail, I WOULDN’T want it to be a love letter, or a thank you letter, or fanmail, or even something from a beloved relative. NO, if I received a letter by mail, I would want (scratch that, I would expect) it to be a letter telling me that I have finally been recognised as an exceptionally skilled witch, and that I have been accepted into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. If I do end up getting a mailed letter (which by the way, I never do) it had better be a letter of acceptance to Hogwarts (or Harvard. I don’t mind either one), or else I’d scream and throw the useless thing into my fireplace.

2. Say that same letter was incinerated before you read it– what would be your reaction?

I would accept the challenge, and put my letter back together using nothing but my spit and sticky tape. Then I’d read the message, and flash my triumphant smile.

3. If you could abolish one day of the week and everything that happens on it, which would you choose?

Sunday, because then I wouldn’t miss anything important. All I ever do on Sundays is sleep. And eat. And try to blog. And sleep some more.

4. What was the last piece of music you listened to?

“I’m Still Here” by the Goo Goo Dolls. Before any of you say anything, yes, yes I know it’s a cartoon. I happen to like watching cartoons, and Treasure Planet was one of the ones I really enjoyed. I also absolutely love Studio Ghibli’s works (“Howl’s Moving Castle” being one of my favourites). They’re just so emotional and full of meaning… That’s the thing about cartoons, see. Cartoons can make you cry, make you laugh. That’s a skill Hollywood needs to learn.

5. What is your favorite regional accent?

British! >:D

Now, let us move on to the 5 lucky nominees! Unfortunately I’m still relatively new to the wordpress world, and so I don’t know many of you that well. So my list of people will once again be from a mixture of blogs.

  1. Insert Witticism Here
  2. Heroic Endeavours
  3. The Art Of Dreaming 
  4. Sanity Fair
  5. Amira’s Nightmare

Right, that’s all for now! I’m off to do the happy dance and lie in bliss as I ponder my good fortune.

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.
