Creating my happy life on the other side of fear.

Award! I won an award!

My lovely blogger pal D from allerdings nominated me for the Liebster Award! I'm so stoked and excited!!


The Liebster award is an award for bloggers with less than 200 followers. "Liebster" is German and means sweetest or beloved - you may call your hubby Liebster if he is behaving particularly nice that day. Alas, with all the glory also comes responsibility and rules.

The rules for receiving this award
1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you've tagged to answer.
3. Choose people and link them in your post.
4. Go tell them!
5. No tag backs.
 
Alright, let's get this show on the road - 11 things about me:
1. I hyper-extend my neck when I'm sleeping - it's as uncomfortable as it looks.
2. I don't like cheese.
3. When I was a child my biggest fear was that I would lose my eyesight one day.
4. I sing songs to my dogs and give them weird nicknames - Calimera, Schnonki, Bluebsi or Schilby to name just a few. (Picture them with a German accent.)
5. I have this strange habit of twirling my hair until there's a big knot that I sometimes have to cut out.
6. I like scars - they tell a story. (You got injured and survived to tell the tale!)
7. I'm very reluctant to watch new shows on TV, I like to stick to old faithfuls.
8. I love sour candy.
9. I'm secretly afraid of the phone - I never pick up unless I know who it is (and even then it's 50/50).
10. Mosquitos love me. (I don't love them back.)
11. I think I overuse brackets. (But how else do you clarify your point?)

Here are D's questions:
1. which country would you go to if you were given a free airplaine ticket?
Australia! I've never been, and I really wanna see it one day. I know a couple Aussis and I love their accents and laid-back attitude.

2. what is the best advice your parents gave you?
If things are supposed to happen they will. Don't stress about it.

3. what are your plans for summer?

Enjoy the gorgeous BC summer in my backyard and use no heat on my hair. No blow dryer, straightener, or curling iron (which, to be completely honest, I don't know how to use anyway). Operation "growing hair out" is in full swing!

4. tea or coffee?
Coffee

5. what is the first thing you notice about someone when you meet them?
Their face and if they smile at me; what kind of handshaker they are (firm or limp, warm or cold, dry or wet *shudder*); but I never remember the person's name

6. who would you invite to play if you could host a music night?
Walk off the Earth! I love them.

7. what did you learn from blogging?
How much I enjoy writing and photography; that it's okay to be different; that bloggers are a very friendly bunch; that blogging is a passion of mine!

8. how would you describe yourself on your profile on a dating website?
Easy smile, enjoy life, optimistic, lots of energy, love coffee in the mornings, could never live without dogs.

9. what kind of friend are you?
Hmm, don't really know - I think I'm generous and I hope I'm a good listener? Advice-giver? My weakness is staying in touch consistently, I'm more sporadic.

10. if you could change something in this world, what would it be?
More honesty, less lies. Be real people!

11. what do you like best about yourself?
I'm a very optimistic person - my glass is always half-full :-)

5. What's the best advice you ever got?
6. Do you have any strange habits? (I shared my hair twisting - now it's your turn)
7. Favourite beverage?
8. If you could choose a time to live in, what would it be and why? (Stone age, 1900s, 60s,etc.)

  1. Thank you so much for nominating me Miriam! I love your facts about you- although I can't believe you don't like cheese! It's ok really; one of my oldest friends doesn't either, so instead of judging her I think "Oh good- all the more for me!" Haha xxx
