This is my second award in my 6 months of blogging, and I’m delighted to thank BeXoxoBlog for the nomination. Without the support of fellow bloggers sharing their support and praise, it’s unlikely we’d have nearly as many fantastic posts to read and appreciate.
- Thank the person that nominated you.
- Answer the questions from your nominator.
- Nominate fellow bloggers you follow.
- Give them 10 questions to answer.
1) Are you a coffee drinker or tea drinker?
Coffee, always. I can’t drink tea unless it’s more or less 50% sugar. I can get by on a single spoon in coffee though (dash of milk too, if you were wondering).
2) Where is one place in the world that you want to visit?
Venice, Italy. There’s something that appeals to me about a city on the water. Amsterdam was great, but it felt like the 420 halfway point to the real deal.
3) What is the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done?
Probably what I can only describe as ‘doing a Britney’. Just under a year ago I was very unhappy with where I was in life, both personally and in terms of career. In the space of a few weeks, I quit my job, cut off my long hair, broke up with my girlfriend, got a new job and moved to London. From that point, I’ve been trying to make everything an adventure if I can really.
4) What has been your favorite vacation destination and why?
Probably Amsterdam as it’s the only holiday I’ve been on since I was 15. It’s a pretty place with a great night life.
5) Do you believe in love at first sight?
Yes…. Sort of…. I don’t know. I’ll tell you what I do believe for sure:
- Only fools fall in love.
- Loving yourself before someone else seems to be common justification to be an asshole.
- I am both a fool and an asshole.
6) What’s your favorite movie?
That’s tricky – I have a guilty pleasure in Disney movies you see…. If I had to pick one stand out movie, it would have to be Fight Club. Great book, great film, but shhh! Don’t talk about it.
7) Do you collect anything?
I hoard random things, and have a pin board full of gig tickets, wristbands, business cards, key-chains and other bits and pieces. I have a t-shirt for almost every gig/festival I’ve been to, and I collect DVDs as I like having complete sets and being prepared for inevitable WiFi issues time to time.
8) What is something that you are looking forward to at this very moment?
Well, I was looking forward to seeing Billy Joel live at Wembley and starting university, but both of those have just passed so I’m just living in the moment and hoping I meet some cool people that turn out to be long term friends (as opposed to the ‘part time friends’ as one of my new friend/neighbour put it in conversation earlier). There are nerdy things to look forward to like Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Pokemon and The Dark Tower but I try not to think about them in relation to the indefinite waiting game we fans play.
9) Out of your posts, which one is your favorite? Why?
I hate this one! I’m without a doubt my own worst critique and try not to judge my work once I’m satisfied enough to post it. I like my ‘Lyrics Without Music‘ posts ‘Twisted’ and ‘Born Anew’ because they were relieving to write. In terms of writing on a topic, I’d say that either ‘Who Do You Think You Are?‘ Or ‘Heroes, and Writing in the (2nd) Wind’ would be my favourite/best/whatever, purely for being raw, honest and mostly unedited.
10) What is one of your pet peeves?
Unreliable people – I can get over, and easily get along with, people who are bluntly honest about their ability to do something or be somewhere, but have no time for people who lie about what they can do and why they don’t. There are too many of those people around.
I’d like to nominate A Modestly Obnoxious Serb for this award – Not only is she a fascinating writer, but without her support, praise and feedback I probably wouldn’t have continued this far.
