So, the loveliest Amy nominated me for the Liebster Award! I'm pretty sure you all know what it is, so am not going to go that much into it. But basically it's a wee award given to bloggers with less than 200 followers to help them get on in the vastness of le blogosphere. Here we go:
♥ You must link back to the person who nominated you.
♥You must state 11 facts about yourself.
♥ You must answer the questions given to you.
♥ You must nominate 11 other bloggers and create 11 questions for them to answer.
♥ You cannot nominate the person who nominated you.
♥You must tell the nominees that you have nominated them.
11 facts about me
♥I am easily one of the most introverted people you'll ever meet. I often go for a week or so without really talking to anyone, and my flatmates will ask me where I've been when I've just been spending time alone, minding my own business.
♥I don't like bellybuttons. They're odd. Toes too, but mainly bellybuttons.
♥I moan a lot. But only about little things, like the weather or how much uni work I have, if something is actually serious or wrong in my life, I won't complain about it.
♥I get very nostalgic, both of my own past and past decades&eras in general.
♥My grandparents had a farm, which I loved and sometimes I wish I had chosen to follow in their footsteps.
♥I've never had a nightmare.
♥I love finding out when people like the same books, films, music and things as I do.
♥I have no idea what I want to do "when I grow up", and thus wish time would go slower so my final year at uni wouldn't start (and end) so soon!
♥I hate cutting my nails, which is why they're often (too) long. When I was wee my siblings would sometimes both have to hold me down so that my mum would get my fingernails cut. I'm not that bad anymore, but still don't like to do it.
♥My opinions/actions/personality traits often contradict radically.
♥I started drinking coffee when I was 3, and drank more of it when I was younger than I do now.
♥Do you usually leave things till the last minute or are you pretty organised? Ugh, I don't know what to say.. Both? I'm organised in the way that I like to do lists etc. and I like living in an organised chaos where I know where everything is, but I do leave things to the last minute (far too often).
♥Do you think you have to be a creative person to have a blog? Not necessarily. Of course it helps, so you can have interesting content and create an appealing design for your blog. But I'm sure there's "uncreative" people with successful blogs too, because everyone will like different kinds of things to read about/look at.
♥What's the last film you watched and what did you think of it? "Grey Gardens". It's a documentary from 1975 about Big and Little Edie, and their life in their decaying mansion. It's kind of dispiriting, but really interesting at the same time. I thank Emma for making me aware of the document's existence and highly recommend you watch it!
♥What do your friends and family think of your blog? Most of them don't know about it! I've a few pals who started blogging after me that I've told about mine, and they seemed to react nicely to it, though.
♥Would you rather spend money on beauty products or clothing? Clothing.
♥Have you ever been in love? I don't think so. You always think you're in love when you like someone, but nope.
♥Why did you decide to start a blog? I loved reading other people's blogs, and in the end thought I'd give it a go myself!
♥What do you do when you're not blogging? (Work, college, school, etc.) I go to the University of Leeds and learn about stuff that's happened in the past.
♥Have any piercings or tattoos? Just my ears.
♥If you could have any super power what would you go for? It's a wee bit boring, but invisibility.
♥What is something that can instantly put you in a good mood? Food. Haha. Seriously though, food.

Jeezo, I had such a hard time coming up with blogs that don't have over 200 followers, apparently I don't read that many of them. (Does that say something awful about me as a person?) But some of the nominees are wee bloggers I've only just discovered (Hi!) and some I've been following/have followed me for a longer while. If you've done this already, don't worry, I won't be hunting you down if you don't do it:-) But I do look forward to reading your answers (and if ye want to you can answer or leave facts about yourself in the comments even if you are one of the popular kids)!
