What can I say, the awards just keep coming in. :) I have two more to share today. The first one is this Gorgeous Blogger Award from Avery over at You Don't Know Me. Isn't this the cutest little award button ever? This one is as simple as it sounds, you pass it on to other blogs that you find gorgeous.
Thanks so much Avery! I'm sorry it took me so long to get around to posting.
The second award comes from a blog that I'm new to, but one that I already love. Clandestiny from Naked in the Closet is quite the intriguing writer. Her posts are brilliantly written, entertaining, and thought-provoking, a trifecta that equals perfection in my books. She is new to the blogging world, revealing bits and pieces of her true identity to us slowly. ;) If you haven't stopped by her blog yet, I am highly reccomending that you do so immediately.
I was honored when she gave me this Super Scribbler Award. (THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU!!!) This one comes along with these rules:
- Properly thank whoever gave it to you. [check.]
- Snitch the button and put it on your blog. [check.]
- Tell your readers seven things they don't know about you. [below.]
- Pass it on to seven more blogs. [below.]
- Notify the winners. [as soon as I post.]
Now the tough part is trying to think of seven things I haven't already told you guys...oh bother. (Yes, I did just quote Pooh Bear.)
Okay, here goes
I dislike the smell of vanilla scented candles and lotions, but love vanilla ice cream, cake, and just about anything esle vanilla flavored. It's weird, I know. I just think the scent is too strong.
I may seem like I have a lot to say here in my own little blog-world, but in real life, I positively shake when put in front of an audience. Stage fright gets the best of me every time.
If I could be play any character in any movie in the whole wide world, I'd play Bellatrix Lestrange in Harry Potter. I have always preferred the evil characters to the good ones. It just seems like they'd be so much more fun to play.
I do not understand society's idea of what love is. Nearly everyone around me is in a relationship, but very few of them are really happy. They bicker constantly, hurt each other without thinking twice, flirt with other people openly, lie about silly things and major issues equally, and show no signs of remorse for any of it. I cannot even fathom calling a relationship like that "love." I know that no couple is perfect and that problems will arise, but it seems like most don't even try to make things work. It's like there is this universal attitude that real love doesn't exist anymore, and that makes me sick. Real love only ceases to exist when everyone stops believing in it. We all deserve it, but we also all need to be willing to work for it. (Am I alone in this? Anyone else fed up with how ridiculous this is getting?)
I take more responsibility and initiative with this blog than I do with my classes sometimes. (You guys rock!)
I am addicted to post it notes. It could become an unhealthy habit...
I read Post Secret because the rare occasional happy secret renews my faith in mankind. :)
Whew. That's tougher than you would think. And now for the nominees! If you're blog is mentioned here, you may accept the award of your choice, and if you prefer not to, that's fine too. I just thought you guys deserved the shout out. :)
Also, some of you may remember Rachel from Confessions of a Virgin Blogger. I showcased her here during the last awards post. She is starting up a new blog project that I think is fabulous! She's heading Prom No Go, a place for all those crazy prom photos you vowed you'd never show anyone. ...except you have to show them. On the internet. It's for the good of society. Everybody knows that laughter makes you live longer. :) For more details, or to submit your incredibly awful photos, click here.
