Sometimes, I Wish I Could Hug You…

Hello lovely people. I wasn’t planning on doing another awards post so soon, but (and I say this as humbly as possible) I’ve recently been nominated again, more times than I would have expected. So I figured I should do this before I lose track. Geeze, why are you all wasting your time reading my blog? I’m kidding! Please don’t leave. 😦

In all seriousness, this month I was nominated for the Versatile Blogger award and the One Lovely Blog award three times. (I really hope this post doesn’t come off sounding conceited, because that’s not the case at all. Pinky swear.) I was so surprised when I was nominated the FIRST time (thank you again Chris and Lillian!)…and shocked when it happened again so shortly after. At first, I thought it’d be okay to just update my original posts with the additional thank-you’s but now that I think about it, that seems kind of lazy, doesn’t it? So, let me fix that!

Thank you to Lizzie of Confessions of An Unpaid Intern and Livvy at nerdybookreviews for nominating for the Versatile Blogger award. I really appreciate it! And thank you to She’s Arab and Good2begone for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog award. Very much appreciated!

I’ll get to the rules in a second. Luckily, most blog awards seem to have the same rules! So lazy people like me can combine them all into one post. Oh, but wait, did you think I was done? Not quite. And you know why? Because you are all awesome, amazing people. Yesterday, people were not thinking straight and as a result, I was nominated twice for the Very Inspiring Blogger award. I know, now I’m gonna have to work on improving my blog so I don’t let anyone down. So…much…pressure…ahhh! (I’m kidding. Please don’t think I’m being ungrateful. ;))

Thank you to juleesaninja and simonet7 for nominating me for the Very Inspiring Blogger award. Not to sound like a broken record, but I really appreciate it!

Despite the fact that I’m now glued to this computer 24/7 (bad for your eyes), and I don’t get any cooking or cleaning done (bad in general), I am so happy to have discovered this lovely WordPress world! I only wish there were more than 24 hours in a day because there’s just not enough time to read all the amazing blogs out there! Thank you to everyone who reads my nonsense, and thank you to everyone who has nominated me. Here are the rules, which apply to all three awards. Funny how that works.

1. Add the award to your blog.
2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you and include a link to their blog.
3. Mention 7 random things about yourself.
4. List the rules.
5. Nominate 15 other bloggers and let them know about the award.

7 Random Things About Myself

(I’m only doing 7 total, not 7 for EACH award because, let’s face it, I’m not that interesting.)

1. I’m weird. Oh shucks, you knew that already? Oh well.
2. It’s easier to write how I feel than to say it. I should work on that.
3. I eat way too much junk food. But we’re all gonna die one day anyway, right?
4. I watch too many reruns. It could be an episode I’ve seen 215 times, but I’ll still watch it.
5. I can’t stand watching the news because it’s sickening what this world has come to.
6. English is technically my second language, but you could never tell.
7. I love the “Schedule” button on WP, it’s quite helpful.


And now for the nominations. (I’m trying not to nominate the same people as last time…spreading the love!) Now, because I’m a lazy person rebel, I’m going to nominate 5 people for each award, which will bring me to a total of 15 (right?). Please know that I think you’re all worthy of every award out there, but I thought it’d be easier to do it this way. To me, the only difference between each award is the name, but the thought/meaning is the same. You all rock! Keep on doing what you do! Thanks again!

So Many Lovely Blogs… (Updated)

You’re all such lovely people, did you know that? Thank you Lillian of High, High, Higher! for nominating me for my second award! It means a lot to be nominated a second time. I didn’t join this world expecting to be liked or nominated, but it’s definitely awesome to get any kind of recognition, so thank you!! And a huge thank you to every person who has ever taken the time to stop by.

Now, Lillian’s post acknowledged two awards she had received, One Lovely Blog Award and Sunshine Award (go you!), so her nominees could choose to accept both or just one. I wouldn’t feel right accepting both so I am choosing the One Lovely Blog Award…just because!

These are the rules:
1. Link back to the blogger who nominated you
2. Paste the award image on your blog
3. Tell 7 facts about yourself
4. Nominate 15 other blogs that you would like to give the award to
5. Contact the bloggers that you have chosen and let them know about the award

I know these kinds of posts aren’t the most entertaining, so I’m sorry to do two in a row! However, if I didn’t do this soon, I’d forget! I know myself.

7 “Facts” About Me

1. I’m a perfectionist when it comes to spelling/grammar.
2. I don’t like showering when I’m home alone. If someone broke in, I wouldn’t hear them.
3. I’m really shy/quiet.
4. I feel most lonely in big crowds.
5. I love music, lots of different types.
6. I’m really bad at food shopping alone. I never know what to get, except junk food.
7. I could probably sleep all day. Sleep is good.

Now for the nominations. First, I’d like to say that I THOUGHT I wasn’t following a TON of people yet, but I just discovered I’m following more people than I thought! (And seriously, is there a list that tells you everyone you’re following? Because it would be quite helpful, as I can’t possibly remember everyone’s name!) After I picked my 15 people yesterday, I realized there were more people I could have chosen! So thank goodness I have the chance to do this again! I won’t do 15 this time though…yeah, I’m a rebel. But I hope you ALL know you’re lovely!

My Nominations (alpha order)

-ducksoup-  (Another funny blogger)
Furious Machine (Really funny articles)

She’s Arab  (She’s real and we have some things in common)
The Book of Alice  (Her kid is too smart for her age!)

Versatile Blogger, Say What… (Updated)

Thank you so much Chris of Introspections During Quiet Time for nominating me for The Versatile Blogger Award. I’ve only been a member of this awesome blog world for just over a month, and I must say, I never even thought ANYONE would read my posts, let alone like/comment/follow me. And I definitely didn’t think someone would nominate me. So again, thank you!!

Now, I know this isn’t an Oscar or anything, but it’s still totally awesome. I created this blog on a whim, and I’m so glad I did. It’s so much more interactive than I could have imagined, and there are so many great/funny people here. I truly enjoy reading everyone’s awesome posts. And I’m grateful to everyone who has stopped by and read some of my randomness!

These are the rules of this award:
1. Add the award to your blog.
2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you and include a link to their blog.
3. Mention 7 random things about yourself.
4. List the rules.
5. Give the award to 15 or more bloggers.

Random Things About Me (in a totally random order)

1. I don’t believe in the five-second rule. More like the thirty-second rule.
2. I get really impatient at grocery stores. People…too many of them.
3. I love animals and despise anyone capable of hurting them.
4. I was in a long-distance relationship with my current boyfriend for several years. We made it despite the odds. 😀
5. I’m obsessed with WordPress. It’s the first thing I check in the morning. I’m not even popular, but so what?!
6. I can be a total dork.
7. I can also be a total smart-ass…not to be confused with being bitchy. 😉

My Nominations

Nominating 15 or more bloggers kind of intimidates me. As I said, I’m still pretty new, and I don’t know all THAT many people. I’m also sure some people may not be interested in participating in this whole award thing, in which case, no pressure…don’t hate me. A couple of these bloggers have tons of followers and have probably been nominated a few times. But here’s my list anyway, in alphabetical order, or at least I think it’s in alpha order!

Becky Says Things (love her sense of humor and drawings)
boomie bol (really like her poems)
clotildajamcracker (has a way with telling stories)
Go Jules Go (Super awesome chipmunk, I mean blogger, who I’m sure we all know!)
High, High, Higher! (funny, real, and we have the same name :D)
Hilarity is (also my kind of humor)
idiot-prufs (okay, you can see I’m all about the humor)
In My Opinion… (I like her view of things)
Jae Lei Nyght (lovely writing)
Joe’s Shitty Ideas (the shitty ideas are quite funny)
Shit No One Cares About (my kind of humor)
Slapppshot (always sharing inspirational things)
Snotting Black (like her attitude/humor)
The Byronic Man (Super funny/sarcastic, and I know you all know him!)
The Life of Jamie (funny stories)

Well, that’s that! I’ll eventually get around to notifying these lovely people. 😉 Thanks again Chris, and everyone who’s taken the time to stop by. Check out his blog as well as those I’ve nominated.


UPDATE 7/19: Thanks to Lizzie of Confessions of An Unpaid Intern for nominating me for this award as well! I really appreciate the nomination! And welcome to the blogging world! 😀
