I Have Been Nominated For a Blog Award? No Way! (learn a bit about me)

a medly of the old and new 952  I didn’t even know this was a thing… especially  since I am still quite fresh in the community.  Either way, knowing that someone likes my blog enough to nominate me makes me feel very warm and happy inside.  Thank you Conquer Your Emotions for nominating me for the Liebster Blog Award!

For anyone who does not know what this award is, go here :   http://lorrainemariereguly.wordpress.com/2013/05/02/the-liebster-award-the-official-rules-my-first-blog-award-and-a-few-personal-secrets-revealed/

To accept the award, there are some rules to follow which are thankfully quite simple 🙂 :

I. Thank the person who nominated you and share a link to their blog.

II. There are 10 questions given by the nominee before you that you must answer.

III. You have to choose 10 of your favourite blogs (that have less than 200 followers) and notify them of their nomination.

IV. You now must come up with 10 questions for your nominees to answer.

So now to answer the questions I have been given by Conquer Your Emotions:

1. What is your passion?

Well, I actually have many passions so this is a little difficult.  I would say my top two passions are writing and spending time nature though.

2. What is a place you would like to travel?

Travel is something that boils in my blood and I really would love to travel everywhere and learn of all the different cultures.  If I had to pick just one though it would be Tahiti.  I think I pick that mainly because it is very cold where I am haha.

3. How has writing affected your life?

Writing hasn’t really affected my life.  It IS my life. I have been writing since before I knew the alphabet (making up symbols and writing stories haha) and my mum read to me from the very beginning of my life.  her reading to me gave me a great respect for words and I am very thankful for that because I believe that writing is who I am and I’m not sure where I would be without it.

4. What is your favorite dish, food, or place to eat?

Oh my haha I LOVE food.  I would say that all food is my favourite food but that wouldn’t be a proper answer to the question now would it? If I had to narrow it down I think it would be stir fry because it can incorporate many things such as noodles, veggies, meats, and everything else wonderful 🙂

5. What is your biggest goal for the new year?

My biggest goal for the New Year would be to start making more choices with ME in mind. I worry too much of other people’s wants and will often forget my own.

6. Do you feel like it is important to connect with nature?

Yes.  I believe that nature is a vital part of us as human beings.  It is always so grounding to just go lay in it and let the breeze caress your face and play with your hair.  Connecting with nature is so intimate on such a different level and I find that very magical.

7. What is something you have anyways wanted to do, but haven’t?

I always thought it would be really awesome to bike across Canada (my home country).  It would take forever and make me broke but I long for an incredible journey such as that so hopefully it something I can and will do sooner rather than later 🙂

8. What is your favorite type of animal?

I like giant squid, turtles, and cats not necessarily in that order.

9. Is there a person who is very inspirational to you?

A person who is really inspirational to me… that would have to be my father. He lives his life the way he wants to and he is so happy without needing very much.  My dad is very creative and adventurous and never takes no for an answer. However, that is just one inspiration of many though because in all honesty, the whole world inspires me.  Everyone is inspiring, even if they are just a stranger on the bus.  Never underestimate others, they all have incredible stories.

10. What are some of your hobbies?

Well I write, knit, draw, paint (sometimes), workout (run, snowshoe, yoga etc. not as much lately though but plan on getting back into it), read, make jewelry, and pretty much any crafty hobby that comes my way 🙂
