One Lovely Blog Award

I was nominated for this award by Tanya at Read. Run. Study. and wow, this is my first nomination ever, so thank you, Tanya! I’m also supposed to nominate other people and write seven facts about myself.

Here goes nothing!

Seven Facts About Me:

1. The first paperback I’ve ever read was a Sweet Valley Kids book. I forgot the specific title, but it was about Halloween, and I can still remember Elizabeth (or was it Jessica?) Wakefield’s blue witch’s dress on the cover. Needless to say, I was a big fan of the twins and of Francine Pascal back then.

2. When I first read Carrie by Stephen King during my sophomore year of high school, I thought it was real. All the news paper clipping style of writing, JFC, I honestly thought everything in that book happened, and it freaked me out to no end. But I also wished Carrie White went to my school, because I’d love to be friends with her. I genuinely loved Carrie White and hated all the bullies who made her life miserable.

3. I am a HUGE One Direction and Taylor Swift fan. I don’t know but some people criticize that bit about me a lot, but I’ll be damned before I let anybody dictate my music taste. They just make me happy when I’m down, you know? I don’t even care that they don’t make the best music out there (at least according to some people) but their songs make me smile, and honestly, isn’t that what music’s supposed to do in the first place?

4. I currently live in a war-torn area. It’s been difficult and school’s out for more than a week now, which is affecting me negatively more than I thought it would. On the upside, it gives me lots of reading time, but I want my normal life back just the same. Money’s been tight because banks are closed, nobody could get out because no commercial aircraft is flying from here to anywhere. The end of this conflict couldn’t come soon enough, that’s for sure. But we still have to wait a few more days, maybe a week. It’s giving me a headache.

5. I love watching TV Shows! My favorites are Hannibal, Game of Thrones, American Horror Story, Vampire Diaries, Teen Wolf, Pretty Little Liars, 30 Rock, and Orphan Black. Merlin, too. Too bad it had to end so soon! I have them DVDs so I can watch earlier seasons while waiting for the next one to come out. Can somebody say hardcore? Hahahaha. Just kidding. XD

6. I used to read lots of classics, and I have tons of them on my TBR. But lately I just keep zoning out on them. It’s bothering me a bit, because you know how elitists are about things like that, and some of my friends (and family) are super book elitists. But maybe right now I’ll just read what I need to and want to. You know what they say; Never let anyone make you feel ashamed of what you like to read, so next time they’ll incriminate me for not reading Dickens or whatever, I’ll just have to tell them that.

7. Obviously I love talking about myself. Haha. No seriously, I do. I can’t do it a lot in real life, so opportunities like this are well appreciated.

My Nominees:

This is my first time to nominate fellow bloggers for an award, but I’m really glad to be given this opportunity because it’s one way to express my admiration for the awesome blogs that I follow. To my nominees, making a post might not be convenient for you, so it’s okay if you pass.

Thanks again to Tanya for nominating me! ♥

    Thanks for the nomination, Tara. :)
    Read/watch/listen to what you want! The other day, I felt all nostalgic and carried a Famous Five book with me to college and got a few weird looks, but hey. If it makes you happy, it makes you happy.

    I really hope things settle down for you soon. You’re okay, though?

    Thank you so much for the nomination Tara! You have a great blog and I really enjoy reading your posts :)
    I absolutely love Taylor Swift too, no shame! She’s amazing.
    I hope you’re OK, glad you have this blog to kinda let things out and chat about yourself for a change.

    I love your answers, Tara!

    One of the things that made your blog stand out when I first came across it was the different perspective you have. I work with a couple of people who were originally from the Philippines, but I wasn’t really aware of the current conflict. I can’t imagine what you are going through, but I hope things settle down for you soon and that you can stay safe in the meantime.

    On a light note – I’m a little too old for One Direction (I grew up with BSB & NSYNC), but I don’t think people should ever judge others for their taste in music. People respond to music in different ways and you should proudly listen to what you want. It’s really the same with books, movies, TV shows, etc too. Pretty Little Liars is one of my guilty pleasure shows – I didn’t list it as one of my favorites, but I’m pretty sure I haven’t missed an episode. :)

    Keep blogging and stay safe!

      I hope so, too, Tanya, thank you!

      I love BSB and NSYNC as well! I grew up dancing and listening to them because of my older sister, who loves them very much. I guess I used to be too conscious of what people thought, but blogging and the internet started to teach me otherwise. ^_^

      Thanks again for nominating me! I’m glad you like my blog and I personally think that yours is great! <3
