musings of a bookaholic: awards… what?

So a few days ago as I was catching up ze awesome blog subscriptions, I found out that I was nominated by the ever-so lovely, Krystal, from unabashedlypoetic.

As these nominations are apparently instant wins, I would like to say: OMGTHANKYOU. Honestly, it’s the little things like this that are actually the reason for my new-found love of blogging – meeting and sharing thoughts and ideas with different bloggers, and having others take the time to read what you write.

ANYWAYS, enough of me rambling, here’s the part where I answer the questions that come with these awards…

AWARD #1: Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandments
So with this award, I must answer 10 ‘getting-to-you-questions’ …
1. Describe yourself in seven words.
Dreamer. Creative. Procrastinator. Genuine. Emotional. Sweet. Wallflower.
2. What keeps you up at night?
Often, it’s the amount of school work I tend to leave ’til the last minute, but usually it’s my insomnia… 
3. Whom would you like to be?
In the famous words of John Lennon, I would like to be happy. (I’m just going to assume that ‘whom’ can also mean ‘what’) 
4. What are you wearing now?
Sweatpants and a thick-ass hoodie…………… yes, it’s cold up here.
5. What scares you?
The unknown, the ocean floor (um, have you seen Finding Nemo?!), spiders, and Toby from Paranormal Activity 3.
6. What are the best and worst things about blogging?
Best: As I’ve said before, being able to share and write about what you love and what you’re passionate about with other people (who probably share the same passion) is an amazing thing about the blogging world.
Worst: As a newbie (and a person who’s technologically impaired), I actually have no idea how to properly design my blog yet I just learned what an RSS was yesterday, so…
7. What was the last website you looked at? < I die.
8. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
Probably my constant need to be a perfectionist. It’s quite bothersome, and annoying, actually… but I can’t help it
9. Slankets, yes or no?
According to this image, I’m guessing Slankets are bootleg Snuggies? LOL. Yeah, no.
10. Tell us something about the person who tagged you.
She actually made the sweetest comment on my About page that really meant a whole lot. Also, she was kind enough to nominate me for these awards, and I thank her for that. Everyone, go bombard her with all the nice comments and thank yous!! Hahaha. Kidding.  Check out her blog! :)
AWARD #2: The Sunshine Award
Taken from my nominator: Thank the person who gave you the award.
 Write a post about it.
 Answer the questions that come with it.
 Pass it along to ten people and let them know they’ve received the award.
1. Favourite Colour: Red.
2. Favourite Animal: Spider monkeys.
3. Favourite Number: if infinity is a number, I choose infinity. But #3 is second best.
4. Favourite Non-Alcoholic Drink: Water.
5. Facebook or Twitter: Twitter.
6. My Passion: Writing, reading, drawing.
7. Getting or Giving Presents: Giving. I love being the reason for someone’s happiness. Also because I’m super awkward when someone gives me a present and waits for me to open it right in front of them.
8. Favourite Pattern: ….hearts?
9. Favourite Day of the Week: Friday.
10. Favourite Flower: The ones where you can blow on them and make a wish… dandelions, but not the yellow ones

AWARD #3: The Candle Lighter Award
Taken from my nominator: For more information about this award, please visit its originating website: Believe Anyway
AWARD #4: The Liebster Award
Taken from my nominator: This award actually means ‘dearest’, ‘favourite’, or ‘beloved’ blog; Check out As the Pendulum Swings for more information!
 Thank you again, to Krystal from unabashedlypoetic for these four lovely nominations!
So, continuing this awesome tag/awards post, I would like to nominate (in no particular order):
