so! the lovely Maya nominated me for both the Versatile Blogger and Infinity Dreams award. it actually still blows my mind that blog awards are still a “thing”. i haven’t gotten one since 2013, in which I got the Liebster Award on three different occasions all in the same year. figured i’d humor it and play along so… without further dicking around, here we go!
the Versatile Blogger Award calls for 7 facts about yourself, in that case i’ll just nudge you people towards this post.
The Infinity Dreams Award calls for answering a set group of questions, so here’s Maya’s questions posed to me:
1. What’s the one thing you can’t leave home without?
my phone! can’t get in contact with anyone if i forget anything else without it.
2. Skirts or shorts?
3. What’s your favourite product in your makeup bag?
i do not wear any kind of makeup, unless chapstick counts
4. What’s your favourite meal?
fettuccine alfredo, the stomach pains afterwards is totally worth it
5. Do you have any pets?
6. Do you have a favourite emoji?
i love the cat face ones, because obvious reasons
7. Why did you start a blog?
because i wanted to stop self-mutilation as a result of depression due to loss. i started out with a friends-locked LiveJournal in 2002-2003 and eventually evolved into the space your eyeballs are feasting on now in 2015
8. Who was the last person you smiled at?
Aidan Turner, because he’s a giant nerd and i’m flipping excited that Poldark’s 2015 TV adaptation is expanding to include all 12 of Winston Graham’s novels [which means i need to get cracking on reading….halfway through the third one!]
9. How has your day been so far?
i’m writing this on May 15th, 2015, at 11:19am but you won’t actually see it until midnight EST on the 16th. it’s going well though, actually. i don’t have a whole lot to do today
10. What is/what was your favourite subject in school?
i loved history and science. my nerd is showing! it really sucks though that history gets really skewed and when you learn the actual truth of a historical subject, you just wanna just take your history book and fucking burn it because it lies
as for the tagging other people, if you see this and you want to do it, go ahead.
