Wow, I’m beyond overjoyed right now! I got nominated for two blogger awards; The Outstanding Blogger Award and The Sunshine Blogger Award! These are long overdue and it is going to be a long post!

The Outstanding Blogger Award

Just something that I designed (using Canva)!

I would like to thank Catie from Catie Blogs for nominating me for the Outstanding Blogger Award! She posts amazing content and has a sarcastic and amusing writing style! They do make for a delightful read! Check out her blog here!
There wasn’t a logo, so I designed the above (thing?). Feel free to use it if you want but please mention it’s not the official logo. I don’t know if there is one.

The Rules:

1.Provide the link to the creator’s original award post. (very important: see why in step 5).
This award was created by Colton Beckwith. Here’s the original post.
2.Answer the questions provided.
3.Create 7 unique questions.
4.Nominate 10 bloggers. Ensure that they are aware of their nomination. Neither the award’s creator nor the blogger that nominated you can be nominated.
5.At the end of 2020, every blog that ping-backs the creator’s original post will be entered to win the 2020 Outstanding Blogger Award!

Her Questions (and my answers):

1.How are you doing?
I’m doing great but I’m having a bit of a hard time getting used to online classes. But don’t get me wrong, I am in no way missing school. It’s just with online classes, I tend to um…get distracted every now and then.

2.Have you ever cried during a movie?
No, not really. But I have been reduced to tears by a few books. I have watched some sad movies but I’ve never shed tears for any. To be honest, I don’t really like watching movies, I’m a little impatient to sit through the whole thing. But I do love the Avengers! I guess in movies, the closest I came to crying was when Dobby died.

3.What’s the last song you listened to?
I listen to songs everyday. I need it like a background while working/studying. I’m currently listening to ‘Rocketman’ by Taron Egerton!

4.If you have a nickname, what is it?
Sorry, I don’t have a nickname.

5.What’s your favorite scent of candle?
I think I’d like anything that smells like mountains or winter.

6.Last thing you bought?
Textbooks and a packet of pens. There’s just no escaping school. *insert sigh*

7.Butterflies or Ladybugs?
I love both but I guess I’d want to go with ladybugs. I love the detail on them!!

Her Questions (and my answers):

1.What embarrasses you the most and/or what’s been your most embarrassing moment?
I am a super weird and awkward person in general and I’m always embarrassing myself. Like, a few days ago, I was in a meeting with a teacher and a couple of students. It was a trial meeting and they really weren’t discussing anything important. Okay, maybe, they were. I had muted my microphone and I was listening to songs. But apparently, I had only thought it was muted. Long story short, the teacher kept looking at me strangely till I figured they could all hear the song. But it was a pretty good song, they should be glad I made them listen to it. If you’re curious, it was ‘Anthem for the Judged’ by Niki Demar.

2.Who do you look up to the most, and what qualities do you love about that person?
I’m one of those weirdos who doesn’t have a role model. See, I look upto many people for certain qualities. Sadly, I haven’t met a person who has all the qualities I want. I look upto both of my parents for their perseverance, honesty and optimism. I look upto my brother for his confidence. I also look upto huge personalities like J.K Rowling and Robert Downey Junior.

3.What would be your perfect day? Plan it out from waking up to bedtime.
My perfect day. That’s a hard question. I don’t like having the same things happening everyday. No, I’m definitely not talking about school. I prefer following a routine but I want something unexpected to happen, good or bad. But if I had to imagine one, I’d say the perfect day would be one, where I wake up in the Gryffindor common room and get to spend the whole day with Professor Sinistra. And then I would want to explore the Forbidden Forest with Hagrid and Fang. I wouldn’t mind meeting a few Greek demigods and Chiron, the centaur either.

4.What’s your biggest fear?
I don’t know. Probably, failure. Failure at school, failure in life, just pure, raw failure. I hate to admit it but it’s literally what drives me forward. If you can’t already say by now, I like letting my imagination run wild and end up envisioning all sorts of horrible scenarios with future me. That works about all the time.

5.How do you like to be comforted when you’re sad or upset?
I prefer to be left alone. I don’t like it when people try to make me feel better. I like being harsh on myself, if that makes any sense. So I usually blame myself if anything goes wrong, and end up ranting about it to myself. I finally write a whole, detailed account in my journal/diary immortalising every moment, you know for future references.

6.What’s your all-time favourite memory?
Definitely the one when my parents finally got me a puppy! He’s four years old now and he is the cutest and my best friend!!

7.What’s your favourite thing you own and why?
Books. And books. More books. Books again.
Seriously, they have helped me a lot.

8.Who was the last person who made you cry and why?
No one made me cry today. But if I cry, it’s either because I’m frustrated about something or because I’m having a hard time getting my point across in an argument. Another embarrassing moment.

9.Where do you hope to be five years from now? Ten? Fifteen?
I hope to have amassed a masters in my favourite branch of Science in ten years and a job in fifteen and then more education. My aim is to end up like Professor Dumbledore.

10.If money was no object, what would you buy?
Books. More books. And a telescope. And a celestial globe.

11.When have you felt the most proud?
I don’t know. Pride doesn’t really last in my case. It’s either extreme joy or sorrow.
