I can’t believe it but I have an award! Thank you so much to Sam O.Bscure for nominating me. Seriously Sam, you are amazing! And to my Awesome Reader, please check out her blog – it is brilliant.
The rules are as follows: (Whoa that sounded way too formal!)
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you
2. Answer the 11 questions set by the blogger
3. Give 11 facts about you
4. Nominate 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers
5. Let the nominees know that you nominated them and give them your questions
Sam’s fabulous questions:
1. Who is your greatest influence?
My greatest influence definitely has to be my mum. She is an amazing person and inspired me to start this blog actually as she is currently doing her English degree part time as she has done for 4 years. She is doing this to one day own her own proof reading company and quit the part time job she has at the moment. She is following her dreams as I hope to do so myself.
2. What is a little known talent you have?
I can sing out of tune and out of key – at the same time!
3. If you had to describe your blog in one word, what would it be?
I think it would have to be ‘evolving’.
4. What is, in your opinion, your greatest strength and weakness?
My greatest strength would have to be that I’m a good all-rounder. Does that count? But my weakness would be punctuality. If I didn’t have my incredible family, I wouldn’t turn up for anything!
5. Who is your favourite superhero?
I don’t really have a favourite superhero but I’m obsessed with the Hobbit and the Lord of The Rings trilogy so…I like Gandalf.
6. What is the greatest advice you have ever received?
“Don’t be scared of moles.” – My Sister (Perhaps the following question will explain this).
7. What is your most unusual childhood memory?
When I was about 7 years old, I remember having a nightmare in which there was a giant mole poking his head out of my chest of drawers. I was terrified of moles for weeks after.
8. How do you think other people view you?
A bit of a brainiac maybe.
9. Describe a typical day in your life?
Well, it depends. School days I usually wake up, rush around and somehow find myself in school on time. After school would be hockey practise or if not, a bit of homework, TV and then a lot of laptop time! Weekends I wake up late, even more laptop time, walking my two dogs…
10. What is the greatest challenge you’ve had to overcome?
Moving comprehensive schools (a school for 12-18 year olds). This was a challenge for me because I was 12 at the time and I had been at my new school for about 4 months, had all my friends and I was scared of what the new school was going to be like. Would I fit in? I did of course and moving schools, and house for that matter, to live on the coast, was the best gift me parents could have ever given me. It’s been years since moving and apart from my best friend ever, I haven’t spoken to my old ‘friends’ in years!
11. Where do you hope to be in 5 years?
To be honest, I’m not sure. I probably will go to University, but I also hope to have continued with writing all through my childhood, in some way or another.
Wow, this is the longest post I have ever done. And we’re not finished! Here are:
