Awards and General Loveliness

I went downtown today with my flatmate, Due, and, on top of getting to know her on a new level of awesome, I got my costume for the Halloween bash we're a'throwing. Pictures will come at a later date because A.) I'm exhausted and B.) I have awards to delve out! 

Yes! When I got home, my first email notification for the blog This Blog has no Name arrived. And to my surprise, the lovely Sonal won an award AND decided to pass it along to Talia, Olivia, Tiffany, Miah, and (wait for it...) me! So Almost (not quite) There has been awarded the One Lovely Blog Award courtesy from Sonal (who was awarded it by Poppy) and the way this works is simple. 
I post the award in my post. Check! 
I then answer the following questions. 
Then, I award it to others. I am so flattered and so thankful that words cannot describe this compilation of emotions I'm feeling. 

Anywho. Onwards we march. 

Part 1: Questions
1. What's your favourite colour?
I like most shades of blue and blue greens, so I'm going to cop out and say blue. Is that okay?

2. Name your favourite song.
Agh! This is hard. My favorite song RIGHT NOW is "I've Got this Friend" by The Civil Wars. However, yesterday it was "Something Good Can Work" by Two Door Cinema Club and the day before that was something entirely different. I don't like picking favorites!

3. Name your favourite dessert.
Mint chocolate chip ice-cream with Nutella and whipped cream (and sometimes cookie bits. Yum!).

4. What pisses you off?
I'm easily annoyed, so sometimes it's just me, but I really hate it when people try to belittle me or make me feel or look stupid, JUST to make themselves seems superior. That's lame, Folks. And SO Grade Three.

5. Your favourite pet?
I've loved all my pets. Tanger the Turtle. Snuggles the Hamster. And Momo the Kitty. I think my favorite pet is the one I have at the moment, so Amelia the Cat wins. I love kitties and she's such a grumpalumpagus.

6. Black or white?

7. Your biggest fear?
I'm afraid of failing. And yet, I do this on a daily basis so you'd think I'd be used to it.

8. Everyday attitude?
I'm always trying to stay positive. Either the cup is half full or it's twice as big as it needs to be. Hehe! I don't remember where I heard that. GREAT line.

9. Your best feature?
Like, physically? Oh, Lord... My pinky toe? I don't know!

10. What is perfection?
Perfection is the state of realizing that one doesn't have to be perfect in order to be their best.

11. What is your guilty pleasure?
Guilty? As in, I should feel bad about it? I don't know. I feel like I should feel bad about SO many things I like... like Dawson's Creek, my love for Euro music, and my obsession with whipped cream. But I don't. These are the things I love and essentially, they make me, me.

Part 2: 7 random things about me
1. I'm a procrastinator.
2. I sometimes put on an English accent because I think I'm cool like that. 

3. I never do the things I'm supposed to do when I'm supposed to do them unless trouble will immediately follow in the case that I don't. 
4. I hardly ever make sense (see above). 
5. I mumble. And I do it on purpose because I'm always talking to myself but if I say things louder than a mumble, people start having opinions and what not. Who wants those?! 
6. I am one of 5 children (and my brother is the only boy). 
7. I love to learn (but I tend to dislike school. Bleh!).

Part 3: I award the One Lovely Blog Award to...

Victoria Schwab
Claire Legrand 
and Bareha

If I could re-award this to Sonal and Talia, I would. But you know where to find them, now, so find them you must! I hope you all had a lovely weekend and I will talk to you guys at Home, Elsewhere, or here tomorrow. Thanks, Poppy! And thanks a million, Sonal. 

Deserae <3
P.S. Oh! As Maya pointed out, this is my 50th post! What a wonderful way to celebrate. With awards! Woot!

  3. OHMYGOSH Des, Thank you so much!! <3 You have no idea how much that meant to me! I've never gotten a shoutout ( or is this a combo of a virtual award and shoutout) before. Either way, this one is definitely the sweetest one ever.
