I was tagged in “The Liebster Award” blog meme by the lovely Kya and Silver. The concept of this is people are given 11 questions to answer, and then they tag others with their own set of questions. So here we go!
1: Why did you start your blog?
I was always inspired by my friend Kya, she was one of the reasons I purchased my first domain name. She always had lots of super cool domain names and pretty websites, and I too wanted a ‘special’ blog just like hers.
2: How long have you been ‘online’?
Since December 1999, at around 12 years of age.
3: Work to dream or dream to work?
I personally work to dream; I work hard to save up to do the things I really want to do and purchase the things I really want to own.
4: Do you have a hidden talent?
I have been told I am very good at impersonations!
5: What book means the most to you?
Probably “The Snow Spider” by Jenny Nimmo.
6: Do you create your own designs/themes for your blog?
I usually do and really love making WordPress themes, but the one I am currently using is a premade theme by the very talented Caroline Moore. I haven’t had as much time to make themes as I did in the past due to real-life commitments, and to be honest I’ve lost a bit of confidence in my abilities!
7: What Hogwarts house would you be sorted into and why?
Every sorting “quiz” I have ever taken has always said I would be a Ravenclaw, which I would be quite pleased about as I would love to be friends with Cho and Luna!
8: If you were an animal, what would you be?
I’m not quite sure… Maybe something cheeky? My friends sometimes call me “Kitty Kate” as I really love cats (aka I am a crazy cat lady!), so perhaps a cat?
9: How has your blog evolved from when you first started it?
I’ve learnt to not be so afraid to delve into more “personal” subjects and be more honest with readers about ‘not-so-ideal-or-perfect’ situations. I am not ‘perfect’ and have never claimed to be, I just try my best to offer advice and put my opinion across.
10: If you were a mutant (think x-men) what would your mutant ability be?
Hehe, well, one of my nicknames is “Erik” because one of my favourite comic book characters is ‘Magneto’ from ‘X-Men’. So just like him, I would like the ability to generate and control magnetic fields.
11: Would you rather meet someone that is a celebrity (and you like) or someone that can offer you good advice?
Personally, someone who could offer me good advice and words of wisdom would mean more to me than meeting someone attractive just because there were in the public eye.
1: Write down your favourite quote from your favourite book and tell me why you chose it.
“I didn’t relate well to people my age. Maybe the truth was that I didn’t relate well to people, period. Even my mother, who I was closer to than anyone else on the planet, was never in harmony with me, never on exactly the same page. Sometimes I wondered if I was seeing the same things through my eyes that the rest of the world was seeing through theirs. Maybe there was a glitch in my brain.” – Bella Swan, “Twilight”
I think that paragraph is pretty self-explanatory. Growing up, I always felt ‘different’ to people my age, I never could connect on a ‘deeper’ level with my fellow peers because I had an old soul and a mind that was fueled by crazy ideas and a vivid imagination. My mum has always been very loving and supportive, but sometimes even I confused her with my quirky little ways and actions!
2: What is that one song that keeps you going when you’re down?
“Banner” by ‘LIGHTS’ is a song that makes me feel upbeat when I need an extra dose of ‘good feelings’.
3: You are the casting director of a movie and your friends are going to be in it. What movie is it and who are you going to cast for each role (including yourself)?
Oh my, that’s a tough one! If it were a movie about myself and my friends during our daily trials and tribulations; I would cast Olivia Hallinan as myself because a few of my friends and family have told me I look a bit like her. (Huge compliment, because she is beautiful! ) As for my friends; I would cast Katie Leung as Silver, Carmen Soo as Sara, Kathryn Prescott as Deborah, Evanna Lynch as Kya, and Amanda Seyfried as Chloe. (I’m really sorry if you hate my choices, girls!! )
4: How would you react if you met your favourite celebrity/singer/artist/writer/famous person and who is it?
I was actually very lucky to meet someone I consider a great role model, and that was the female musician ‘LIGHTS’. She was very kind and it really made my year!
5: What do you like to watch on youtube?
Very stupid, very silly and very funny videos.
6: Which Hogwarts house would you be in and why?
Hehe, as I answered previously in Kya’s question: Ravenclaw! But if I can’t choose Ravenclaw again, my second choice would be Hufflepuff because I love badgers.
7: If you had a superpower, what would it be?
Again, as I answered previously in Kya’s question: I would like to be the female version of Magneto! But as my second choice, I would like to be a super soldier like Captain America.
8: What will your last meal on earth be?
My mum’s Sunday roast dinner.
9: What is you dream coordinate?
A Pink Power Ranger costume.
10: Where would you like to visit in 2014?
All of my online friends around the world and also my friends in the UK that I don’t get to see much of as they live too far away.
11: What is your favourite song to sing when no one is looking?
Anything that is way above my vocal range, hahaha!
And my 11 questions are:
1: Do you use your real name online or an alias? If you use an alias, what was your reason for choosing it?
2: Do you have any pets? If so, how many and what are they?
3: What is your earliest memory?
4: Have you every broken any bones? If so, how?
5: What is your most treasured possession? Please explain why.
6: Which character from a book, movie or tv show do you most relate to or are most like? Please explain why.
7: What is your favourite drink?
8: What age were you when you had your first crush?
9: What was your earliest experience with death?
10: What was your first word(s) as a child?
11: Who inspires you the most? Please explain why.
I don’t want to ‘pressure’ anybody into answering these questions so I will simply say; anybody who would like to answer them is most welcome to and are free to tag themselves. Just let me know in the comments section if you decide to take part, as I’d love to read your answers!
