Fake Liebster Award news ~.^

So I decided to “steal this” if you will from the awesome Blogger that is Emilyxonline (Beauty and Lifestyle Blog) Please check her out, it is an amazing Blog! I decided to steal it from her, because I realise it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. These are some great questions!

THE RULES:
Answer the 11 questions that your nominator has asked you.

  1. Nominate 11 other bloggers (with under 200 followers)
  2. Ask your nominees 11 questions.
  3. Let them know you nominated them!

Instead of tagging 11 people, anyone who wants to do this post. feel free too! Make sure to tag me in them so I can read your answers and get to know more about you!!

My questions for all of you:

1. What is one thing you love about yourself?

This has honestly been the hardest question to answer. I’ve been feeling very lost recently and not very respected in a lot of different areas of my life. So it’s hard to think there is anything lovable there. The one thing I do love about myself is that no matter what I’m going through, I do not take my stuff out on those who have done me no wrong.
2. If you had the chance to meet your favorite youtuber, who would it be and why?

I never have but I would love too! Their “career” isn’t really YouTubing, but their YouTube channel is now apart of their career. I suggest that if you’ve watched RuPaul’s Drag Race, or are aware of the Drag scene. Please check out “Bro’Laska“…It’s such a great and funny channel! This link is for their play list. You will not be disappointed! They have made me laugh and gotten me through some really depressing nights. If I’m in a bad way, I will play their videos before I fall asleep. Unfortunately, there last few videos have been extremely short.
3. Have you ever traveled out of your country? If so, where did you go?

I have, I live in Australia. I’ve travelled too two places, one was the United States and the other was the UK. I loved both places, they were so gorgeous and I travelled to the US and then UK straight after and the difference in the greenery, was shocking! I couldn’t get over it! Literally,lol.
4. One quote you will always stand by?

I will always stand by the Quote:

Will Shakespeare

It was written by the one and only William Shakespeare, but it is also on my Great Grandfathers head stone. I feel like we have lost this a lot, and it is probably the hardest thing to do in this world. Especially in the world we live in, with all the photo shop and filters and this almost “need” to have the best of everything, even if we don’t really want it. I think we need hold to this quote more than ever. In a world where people don’t want to listen to other sides and just want to bully, it can be tiring to fight for ourselves, but we need to more than ever!
5. Favorite childhood memory?

This is an interesting question, because my answer is a weird one. Whenever my brother and I would both get grounded at the same time, especially if it was an all-nighter one. We would sit in our bedroom door frames with our pillow and blankets and just talk to each other. We were probably being punished because we were doing something to each other, but we would just sit, talk and joke. I can’t even tell you what we even talked about, or why we were grounded, but they were honestly my favourite times.

6. Advice you would give your teenage daughter (if you ever have one)?

The best advice that would probably give her is that, she needs to decide for herself what is right and what is wrong, ultimately she is the one that HAS to live with that decision. If she knows that something is wrong and she goes through with it anyways. I will be there, but she has to be willing to follow through with the consequences of her actions. That whatever her decision, she needs to be willing to take responsibility for that choice.  For example, if she walks pass someone being bullied, she needs to really ask herself “Why”…I think that I’m pretty harsh sometimes,lol
7. Are you more of an eyeshadow or lipstick lover?

Definitely a lipstick lover. I am so low maintenance and trying to do all that stuff to your eye, it’s a lot of work,lol…I also do love though how lipstick just seems to give me that feeling of “I am finally ready, this is it”. “This is me for the whole day/evening/party.” I tend to put lipstick on last. I tend to just put an eye liner on. Sometimes I will put eye-shadow on, but it is really rare and usually I have practised with the colour (or colours) earlier.
8. Favorite high-end foundation (if you have one) and favorite drugstore foundation?

I don’t really have one to be honest.
9. How often do you wash your makeup brushes/sponges?

As mentioned before I am really low maintenance when it comes to make-up. So I don’t really clean that that often, because I don’t really use them that much. Most of the things I use, don’t really need to use makeup brushes and sponges. If I ever have to use that kind of makeup, I’ve probably borrowed it from my brother…He’s a Drag Queen =D lol Far more make up maintenance than me,lol
10. Favorite thing to do on the weekend?

I love to sit down, with a cup of tea/coffee, play “The Sims” and then watch “Safari Live“. Oh I love it! I would literally do it every single day if I could =D Please feel free to join us…I’ll be there! If the weather is nice, I will go for a walk with my Dog and usually walk by the shop, buy a nice lunch, just before the drive.

11. What do you like about my blog? 

I like how your Blog is relatable, even though I am low maintenance when it comes to make up, I don’t feel like it’s too extreme, that I just don’t get it. It’s also given me a few handy tips as well, so I don’t need to take so long,lol. I really enjoyed your “Get UNready with me” post, as I feel like I have no idea what I should be doing at night, but should be doing something! I also didn’t know that you lived in Australia at that point,lol

A good Education

25. Education 

I do feel very fortunate that I was able to get a good education through the Public School system. I was very lucky with one teacher in particular, VERY lucky. If it hadn’t have been for him I would have never have realised that I suffered from Dyslexia.

I should start from the beginning…

Although I was lucky with the schools that I got into, the teachers weren’t exactly the best kind. They had their favourite smart students and pretty much the rest of us, were sort of ignored. I would get the same remarks over and over and over again, great ideas, your sentence structure is all mixed, even my English teacher made these remarks and she still did nothing. Why worry, when you’ve got the first group of really smart students in the same group. These students were the first group of “special students” who were ‘smarter than your average bear’.

It was SUCH a frustrating experience, I’d have the exact same ideas as my A+ friends, but something was always wrong with my “sentence structure”. My teachers just had their favourites, even my Drama teacher. He said for the big play he was going to let us audition and get in a real life experience. Then when we came back from holidays, he just gave the parts out…To the people we all know he was going too, and I got a walk on part.

Who knows…Maybe if I had an actual positive experience, where I would have gone? Even know I still think…Maybe I should do something…

UNTIL!

I started studying Classical Studies (Ancient Histories) and I was getting the same comments. However, my teacher actually pulled me aside and said that every major project he wanted to see me one-on-one. I had great ideas, but my sentence structure was all wrong. So I started to see him one-on-one before handing in my projects…Guess What…I got all A’s and B’s for that class…Amazing! It made me love Ancient History, it made me love learning and I felt less stupid…Which was probably the most rewarding things of the whole experience.

What is something that people are obsessed with but you just don’t get the point of?

Complete strangers opinions and lets’ be honest for some people it obviously affects them badly and then spend all this time trying to prove how it hasn’t affected them. I’ve always felt like if something really doesn’t affect you, you don’t spend a lot of time on it. It’s okay to be upset by these things, people are cruel, especially strangers who it doesn’t affect. Pretending it hadn’t, doesn’t help either. You take it on and don’t do anything about it, it’ll get worse.

What quirky things do people do where you are from?

We make up words and for quiet a few years there all of us “kids” thought that the words the adults in our family were talking about, were real words. For example we say “Parple” which basically means “Fart”. I personally say szchikabab instead of “Shit”,lol.

What are some things you wish you could unlearn? 

In regards, to one of the above questions. I have learnt how cruel people can be, I wish I could unlearn and still have that naivety that people have some sort of good in them.

Who is someone that you miss having in your life?

The first person that popped into my mind was my Great Grand Father and also my Great Grand Mother, but I never got to meet her. I’m sure a lot of people would agree with me too! My Great Grand Mother was apparently very kind and not much seemed to bother her. She had polio and lost half of her leg because of it, but when people first saw her after the operation they didn’t even notice. My Great Grandfather definitely had an Irish temper, but he generally sweet to his family, especially to me =D hehe. They were also both WAY ahead of their time. We found my Great Grandfather “scriblings” and he was so smart! He wrote things about religion and do we really need it now, he was learning Greek at just over 80’s year old because he wanted to go to Greece and see all the ancient sites, before he unfortunately had a heart attack.

This week Bookmark Chronicles would like to know:

How long has it been since you last bought a book?

  • 1-7 days
  • 8-14 days
  • 15-21 days
  • 22-28 days
  • Over a month

It has been kind of over a month since I bought a book. I say “kind of” because I did buy a book from where I work, a lot of Libraries will have some sort of book sale. They make good money from those. From an actual book store, has definitely been over a month. My brother got me a book store gift certificate and I have actually bought a book from the store. Now comes the responsibility though of what books do I buy, do I wait for a sale, do I just go crazy and get what I want. Or do I wait for a book I want to read to come out or be on sale…The pressure!lol

24….A Book you have learned from

24. A Book you have learned from

I have really been struggling with this one, mainly because they are SO many books that I have learnt something from. It’s part of the reason that I love to read, every time I reread a book of mine as well, I find that I learn something new, or I see something that I had never seen before. So saying all that, it’d be hard to pinpoint one particular book.

Some of the authors that I would highly recommend me though if you want to read something to learn from is:

Paulo Coelho – I’ve read quiet a few of his books, and although I do feel that you have to be in a certain place n your life to “get them”. I loved them and I understood them.

Jodi Picoult – She was probably the first author that I found could write well from everyone’s perspective, and I learnt perspective from that, more understanding.

J.R.R Tolkien and C.S. Lewis – These writers taught me to read and use my imagination.

Beatrix Potter – I honestly believe that she taught me that animals have feelings too.

The list goes on in all honesty.

What do you do when you’re not working? If you are retired, what do you that is not part of your regular daytime routine?

I love to play computer games, both on a console and on a pc. I’ve also gotten into mediation recently, it’s really helping me with the anxiety issues. I actually really enjoy taking my dog for a walk, if she’s not involved, I do not enjoy it so much…She’s so cute, because she gets herself so excited, she’s exhausted before we get out the door,lol

What would you do if you won the lottery?

Oh wow, what wouldn’t I do?!lol … I would pay off both my parents mortgage and I would then by myself a nice house, which hopefully I could design from the bottom up, with my own Library. I would also love a beach house, but I’d rent that out during the Winter,lol…Travel would definitely be in the immediate future.  I would love to help as animal sanctuaries/zoo’s/places as I could.

What makes you laugh the most?

Probably my pets too be honest, they’ll do a movement, or a little sound and it’s so silly, it just makes me laugh. I also feel terrible for admitting this but those animal type fail videos, they make me laugh too. I think a lot of it is too do with their reactions after, they look at the camera like they are saying “What”lol

What is your biggest pet peeve with modern technology?

Stupid people have access to it!lol

This week Bookmark Chronicles would like to know:

Do you have a TBR list? 

If so, tell me about it: Is it written or typed? Do you use Goodreads? How long is the list? How many books are on it? etc.

I have two kinds of TBR lists…Just a quick note for those who may not understand what TBR stands for, it’s just simply “To Be Read”.

As mentioned above, I have two types of lists. The first one that I have is on Goodreads. It has probably my most simple list on there. A lot of the books I either already have and am just waiting to read.

The other list that I have, is just the one in my mind. Which is probably why I AM CONSTANTLY FORGETTING WHAT I MEAN TO READ! It’s funny, now that I’m actually working in a Library, I keep seeing these books or just items I want to read or listen too. Yet, I keep forgetting to get them. That’s also because though I don’t really have anything to carry them all in!
