Versatile Blogger Award

I was nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by my lovely friend Vanessa who blogs at My Retrospectacles about her adventures in Asia and shares her super cute drawings. Thank you sweetheart for nominating me!!

The rules for being nominated:

  1. Post the award on your blog
  2. Thank the person who nominated you
  3. Share seven facts about yourself
  4. Nominate 15 blogs
  5. List the nominees and let them know

7 Facts About Me:

  1. I’m going to graduate with an MA in English philology in a year and I’m completely freaking out. Like, how do you even adult?
  2. I’ve now fully embraced being a crazy cat lady. I’ve had my Merlin for a bit over a year and now I just want all the cats.
  3. I’m currently reading six different books because, for some reason, lately I just keep starting new books and not finishing the previous ones. Christmas break – I promise I’ll finish everything then.
  4. I constantly hate my hair. When it’s longer, I want it shorter. When it’s short, I want it long. Really, I guess, I just want thicker hair and I would like it, but since it’s thin, I hate it all the time.
  5. I have a really really really bad habit of biting my nails. I should stop. It’s a stress reaction and I’m stressed out constantly. Seriously. It never stops.
  6. I have an obsession with traveling. I keep buying trips everywhere. Not good for the wallet, but definitely good for the soul.
  7. I don’t understand Snapchat. Bad blogger.

I nominate:

Sara from Sincerely, Sara

Kristin from My Life as a Teacup

Rosa from Gingerbread Sagas

Alice from The Geeky Burrow

and Fiona from North East Nerd

And yes, I do realize this is only five, not 15. But I couldn’t come up with more right off the top of my head (although I’m sure if I started going through my Bloglovin’ I could find a million amazing blogs!).

5 Fandom Friday: Blogging Snacks

5fandomfriday
It’s time for another 5 Fandom Friday (a linkup hosted by The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick – check their amazing blogs out for more information on the linkup!). This week’s topic for the post was “Favorite Snacks/Drinks To Consume While Blogging”. Here are mine in pretty much the order of importance:

1. Coffee

I always drink coffee…doesn’t matter what I’m doing!

2. Tea

If I’ve kept track of my coffee consumption and notice it’s getting waaayyy too high, I switch to tea. If I’m feeling very health-conscious I have green tea.

3. Grapes

I like to snack while I do stuff (VERY bad habit) so I try at least to make it something healthy like grapes, which are a good and easy snack.

4. Peanuts

Basically, the same thing as with grapes… Also, for some reason we always have peanuts :P

5. Chips

Okay, so here’s my biggest vice – I’m completely addicted to chips. And right now I’m trying to cut down A LOT so I haven’t any in a long while…but if I was to completely give in to my cravings, I’d opt for some sour cream and onion chips or something similar. But, like I said, at the moment I’m trying to stick to the grapes and peanuts, and maybe some cottage cheese.

Liebster

A while back I was nominated for yet another Liebster award by the sweet Marina from Earth to Marina. I put off writing the post since I had just done two of them but now I thought maybe enough time has passed so that you won’t feel like I’m doing these every single day :P

Liebster Award Post (2nd One)

YES, another Liebster Award post! I know I did one just a few days ago but Ingrid, the beautiful owner of Smilingrid, nominated me again so I wanted to answers her questions.
