Unique Blogger Award

It has been six days now, and I can’t believe I’ve been nominated for two awards! The Real Neat Blog Award, and now the Unique Blogger Award.

I would like to thank Aestheticallae for nominating me. Please check out https://aestheticallae.wordpress.com … He just joined the WP community about two weeks ago, and I must say he already has great content. So definitely worth reading.

Here are the rules as follows:

-Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you.

  • Answer the questions.
  • In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award.
  • Ask them 3 questions.

Now before I begin, I don’t recall Aestheticallae asking any of his nominees three questions, so I guess I’m going to answer the same three he got asked.

Q1. Do you believe in Parallel Worlds? 

I can’t say I do or I don’t. But perhaps there could be such a thing in such a vast universe. After all, we have only studied and explored around 4% of the universe. So there may be a possibility
Q2. What inspired you the most when you bounced back into the realm of sadness? 

That realm is a very tough and consuming place. Nobody should stay there to long because it’s not fun, and nobody should endure that much sadness and pain.

However, whenever you’re placed in a tough situation like this one, there is always some good that comes out of it. And there are always people who are there to help you, like family.

These inspire me to be a better version of me everyday.

Q3. Jot down your favorite lyrics

Remember those walls I built
Well, baby, they’re tumbling down
And they didn’t even put up a fight
They didn’t even make a sound
I found a way to let you win
But I never really had a doubt
Standing in the light of your halo
I got my angel now
It’s like I’ve been awakened
Every rule I had you break it
It’s the risk that I’m taking
I ain’t never gonna shut you out

Up above is Halo by the one and only Beyoncé. Such a powerful song, so it’s definitely worth listening too!

Now I too have been asked to nominate a few people for this award. This can help them gain some new well deserved followers and readers. And I was lucky enough to stumble across some amazing bloggers who deserve every bit of this award:

Kara Simone

Camila Aimbire

DoraDoressa

Misfit Spirit

Zeckrombryan

StayInKraft

Organicaholic

Beautiful Mind

And here are your questions:

  1. What’s one challenging moment you had to overcome?
  2. What’s one thing you’d wish you could change in today’s society?
  3. What’s one thing you like and dislike about the current advancement of technology

The Real Neat Blog Award

I have been nominated by Dream Desire Achieve for the Real Neat Blog Award! If you haven’t checked out her blog, please do so. She is an amazingly creative writer who enjoys writing about everything that captivates her mind and that which conforms her to Christian faith, she’s also a very devoted wife, mother, and Christian, with a kind and charming personality. I always enjoy reading her posts, so I strongly suggest you head on over to her blog and see for yourself.

Thank you very much for nominating me, and I also thank everyone who has been reading, following, and supporting my blog. It means a lot.

Here are the rules for the “Real Neat Blog Award”
1. Put the award logo on your blog.
2. Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs.
3. Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
4. Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs.
5. Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog, etc).
6. Ask your nominees 7 questions.

These are questions I was asked:

1. What is the main reason as to why you started blogging?
I began blogging because I love writing, I’m in love with words. And I’d like to share my experiences, stories, thoughts, and travels with my readers to hopefully inspire and educate them about the world we live in and its everyday wonders.

2. Explain one personality trait that gets you into trouble sometimes.
I’m fast. Now by fast I mean that sometimes I can do things fast, so the result is quite “crappy.” So I need to slow down and make sure the work is done correctly.

3. What is your proudest accomplishment?
This blog. Having to blog every week makes me very happy because I get to share my reflections, poetry, and travels with you. And I continuously receive nice comments and support for it.

4. Who inspires you?
Besides my family, it would be you, my readers. You inspire me every day with your kind comments, support, and love for writing.

5. If you could have chosen a profession other than your own, what would it be?
Right now I don’t have a profession. But I’m set on being a marine biologist and photographer for National Geographic.

6. What item is at the top of your “bucket list”?
To finish high school, so I can go back to Montreal and go to University.

7. Share with us your favorite quote?
“It always seems impossible until it’s done” – Nelson Mandela

My nominees are:

Riya – AestheticGraphy

Julie – In the Wild Los Angeles

Charlene – Charlene’s Adventure

Winta – Wandering Outside the Box

My questions for the nominees are:

1. What is the main reason as to why you started blogging?
2. Explain one personality trait that gets you into trouble sometimes.
3. What is your proudest accomplishment?
4. Who inspires you?
5. If you could have chosen a profession other than your own, what would it be?
6. What item is at the top of your “bucket list”?

Thank you. Note: I’m arriving in Fort Lauderdale (final destination) this evening, so hopefully I can publish a travel post later this evening.
