I was nominated by the lovely “The Wee Writing Lassie” (head over and check her out!) I would really honestly like to thank her, because she has come up with some amazing questions! Questions that did make me happy =D I am completely honoured that she nominated myself.

My Questions

  1. Who is your favorite author? I don’t know which list would be shorter for me. Every year I end up reading a book from a couple of new authors. I am one of those people who when you see “recommended” I put it on my tbr list. Interestingly, haven’t found a author I haven’t really liked yet.
  2. If you could rule one of these five fictional/mythical lands: the Galaxy of Star Wars, King Arthur’s Britain, Westeros, Middle-Earth or Discworld – which one would it be and why? Oh gosh, that is a really good list. My top two would be King Arthurs’ Britain or Middle-Earth. I think, by process of elimination though, I would want to rule in Middle Earth. Because isn’t Middle Earth, just a better (haha) version of King Arthur’s world?
  3. If you had the powers of a god, what would you do with them? The first thing I would do is come to Earth and give those “Christian Conservatives” a piece of my mind! Stop using our friends name is vain, when they’re not even Christ-like to begin with!
  4. Which famous historical figure would you have round to dinner? Oh, this like the first couple of questions!lol. There are so many choices! I think though I would have to have W. Shakespeare, I found out something recently, that has made me think that he wasn’t just a great writer. I found out that at a time where most people were writing about the Jewish people, kind of like Hitler would. Shakespeare was writing about the Jewish people and how OTHERS were treating them. How they had no problem asking for money from the Jewish people, but would call them “dog” and spit on them in the streets.
  5. You’ve been abducted by aliens, and they demand that you take them to your leader – who do you take them to? Well, if they are nice aliens I am taking them to Adern and Obama. If they are more the “probing” type, Johnson, Trump, Putin and Morrison.
  6. If there was a film made of your life story, which famous actor would you want to play you? Living or Dead? Living, I would want it to be Drew Barrymore. Some may say that I look more like Natalie Portman, and I wish that I looked more like Liv Tyler. However I feel that Drew Barrymore is more “me”. Well she’s more me now, than when she was younger. If someone could come back to life, it’d have to be Audrey Hepburn.
  7. If you were trapped in a historical time (presumably your time machine has malfunctioned) what period would you be most likely to survive in? I don’t think I could honestly survive any other time that now. I’m too “weird” for the other times and I don’t want to be any other way.
  8. What is your favorite kind of weather and why? I love Spring type weather, it’s not overly hot like Summer. It does have a warmer wind, unlike Winter. You can wear a dress and a skirt, if you want. You can put it with a cute jacket though.
  9. Chocolate or Caramel? Why not both?lol…I think I am more caramel than chocolate, but at the same time. Sometimes caramel can be really rich and sickly.
  10. If you could turn into any mythical creature, which one would it be? As my Gran calls me “as rare as the Unicorn, is the maiden of fair spirit”. A Pegasus Unicorn creature. As much as I would love to be a Dragon, they are huge and they tend to only need to eat meat.
  11. Who are you most grateful to in your life? I am grateful for literally everyone in my life, even the bad ones. Each person is here to teach us a lesson.

Writing my Heart out  – Sunshine Blogger Award

Thank you to Writing my Heart out for the nomination (sorry it took so long!) You should really all go and have a read, because they are truly writing from their heart!

The Rules For Sunshine Blogger Award

  • Thank to the person that nominated you.
  • Link the post back to them.
  • Display the picture on your post.
  • Answer their questions.
  • Nominate 10 bloggers.
  • Provide 11 questions for your nominees.

My Questions

  1. Why do you write blogs?

When I first started, I wasn’t exactly sure why I was keeping up with it. Even now, I’m not sure. I have a very random Blog. I don’t seem to have a “type”. Whatever I’m writing though seems to be keeping people interested and they keep reading. I guess I’m writing as well to show people that you don’t to have a “set theme” either. Just writing to reach out and reach out to others, keeps me coming back. I have found the nicest people writing my Blog.

2. What are Top 5 lessons you’ve learned in your life?

  • If ANY relationship is not working well (toxic) for you anymore, no matter how long you’ve known the person. Speak with them first and if nothing changes, move on. It’s alright.
  • If you, also for any reasons, can’t work in your dream career. Make sure that the job you are in, you at least like the people you work with.
  • I believe dark times will reveal who you are, but also, those people around you too.
  • Furbabies ARE family, they can be so much better than humans. Animals in general, don’t underestimate them!
  • There will always be that one paragraph on your Word document that just will not format properly, like the rest!

3. Are you an Introvert or an Extrovert?

Oh definitely an Introvert, especially when I’m around people I don’t know or know that well. I explain myself like this: When I’m getting to know you or first meet you, I am a Fluttershy. When I know you well, I am Pinkie Pie. Yes, that is a My Little Pony reference.

4. Who’s your favourite Music band?

I don’t really have a favourite band, I just like what I like. I like everything from Enya, to Metallica, to Eminem (sometimes).

 5. What’s best book you’ve read & like to recommend others?

Oh gosh! This is a huge list to choose from! I might just choose from one that I’ve read from this year. I am still in love with “Circe” written by Madeline Miller. I love it so much I am going to ask for it for Christmas and if I don’t get I’ll buy it anyway.

6. What’s best life advice you ever got from someone?

It’s not really advice, it’s more of a “knowing”…Knowing that I’ve got help around me, I just need to reach out and ask.

 7. Name your favourite festival.

I haven’t gone to a musical festival in a couple of years, my favourite WAS Soundwave and I got to see Metallica…AMAZING!!! They actually had Linkin Park first and there were amazing too. However, I am a big Nerd. So I love all the “Cons”. I just wish I lived in America, so I could go to the San Diego one! It’s on the bucket list.

   8. Describe moment when you were proud of yourself.

Even though we ended up not being friends anymore. I am proud of myself that I stood up and told my “best friend” of half my life. That her boyfriend is abusive and a bully and she can do better. I think this was the third or fourth time they had broken up and when I heard he had pushed her while they were drunk, that was it. The ONLY thing I regret I have, was not to saying to her when she would say to me “I know you don’t like him” was “What is there too like?”.

9. Which is that one movie which has inspired you the most?

I’m not sure about inspired, but I guess I also do…lol…All of the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbits…It inspires me and with one simple quote…

SamWise

   10.  Are you a health conscious or a food freak?

Only when I have to be, if that makes any sense? This last and past year with everything that happened to myself and others in my life (My Dad had a triple bypass, a friend who is a year younger than I, had a heart attack etc) You do start to become more aware.

   11. If you have read my blogs , what’s your favourite blog written by me ?

I do read your Blogs! My favourite had to be Music: My escape This is mainly because I can relate to it so much.
