Hey hey heyyyyy
I recently got nominated by my friend Todd at https://toddsmidt.wordpress.com/2015/07/20/liebster-award/ for the Liebster Award. I will be honest, I haven’t had a chance to participate in the nominations because I got really busy so I apologize to everyone who has nominated me without receiving a response. Today I have put aside my lunch to participate! I particularly like this nomination because I feel like it’s a fun and interesting way to tell a little about myself and ask my fellow bloggers a little about them. Since I’m an odd ball I’ll probably be asking some strange questions people normally wouldn’t hahaha but I’ll think of them as I go! Todd, thanks for the nomination! Check out his latest post with his answers to get to know him a little more 🙂
The questions for me were…
1. What or who is the greatest love of your life?
Simple. Traveling. I can honestly say nothing and no one makes me happier than seeing and exploring this beautiful world we live in! I guess that will change once I find “the one” but right now, at this very moment it is traveling. I couldn’t ever even be with someone who had no passion to explore with me.
2. Who are your favorite writers?This sounds cheesy, but I will be honest and say other bloggers. I know people expect an answer like Hemingway or Shakespeare because they are famous for beautiful writing but I would much rather read from people who share personal experiences or passions through their blogs. There’s something so exciting about reading a post from someone just doing it as a hobby like myself.
3. What interest haven’t you pursued, but have always wanted to and what draws you to it?
I have so many interests. I honestly adapt to so many different things. I think a big part of me has always wanted to be an event planner. I mean, I have thrown events (baby showers and what not) but I think that’s something I would not only love doing but be pretty good at. I love helping other people and I have a genuinely good feeling when other people feel good about an event that is thrown for them.
4. What’s your favorite travel destination? (been to and want to go)
I love Europe, there’s no doubt but if I’m going to go with the first place that came to my mind… California. I love California. I love everything about it. The weather, the people, the views, the food, the glamour but also the very laid back lifestyle. Everyone in California just seems happy. They stroll around coffee shops and beaches taking in how beautiful their surroundings are. I know you’ve heard it before but there’s just something in the air over there! I guess for places I want to go, right now the three I have my heart set on are south of France, Thailand and Cape Town in South Africa. What a sight that would be! I still don’t think anywhere in the world will have me stray from beautiful California though ☺️
5. Which talent would you most like to have?
My talent of choice without a doubt it would be to sing! I wish that I had a good singing voice. When I hear people singing beautifully I get the happiest feeling in my heart. Goosebumps. I hope that everyone who has that talent shares it because in my opinion it is the most beautiful one of all.
6. What is your most treasured possession?
My passport!!! Hahaha I guess that doesn’t come as a surprise since traveling is all I really talk about but my passport is for keeps. I love all the stamps and the freedom that comes with it. I mean, this tiny little paper book gives me access to this whole world. Isn’t that crazy? Something that cost only $100 is hands down my most treasured possession of all time. Nothing compares. Ever.
7. What thought or message would you want to put in a fortune cookie?
It’s a famous quote I’ve read many times that goes a little something like this…
“Everything is okay in the end, if it’s not okay… It’s not the end”
I would choose this because I think it relates to every single one of us. Sometimes we get silly messages that we try to make sense of but this one is comforting for everyone living this exciting yet confusing life we sometimes lead haha. There’s no way that wouldn’t put someone at ease and a beautiful smile on their face.
8. Who is your hero of fiction?
Does Kim Kardashian count? Hahaha I’m kidding. Kind of? I don’t even know. I can’t think of anyone. Sorry guys, I suck. But no really, it isn’t Kim. Don’t judge me…
9. What is your idea of perfect happiness?
To always feel loved. It sounds like a typical answer but it’s simple. To never feel alone, to always have someone to call. To cry to, to cry with, to have a feeling of home in other people. To me that is happiness. When I feel down and I just sit with someone I feel at home with, I honestly feel happy. I feel content and comfortable. That’s it, that’s all…that’s happiness.
10. What is your motto?
Let go and let God.
I choose this because I believe. Always put trust that a higher purpose will take care of you.
The rules of the award are pretty simple:
One- Thank the nominator
Two- Display award in post
Three- Nominate 10 other bloggers
Four- Answer the 10 questions
Here are my 10 questions for the nominees to answer. I apologize that they aren’t very deep but these are questions I am genuinely interested in getting an answer for haha.

3. If you were stuck on an island, what any 3 items would you wish to have with you and why?
4. Oprah or Ellen? Just pick guys, I need answers hahaha
5. Do you live to eat or eat to live? Some people plan their day around food (me) while others only eat because they have to (some of my friends…I envy them)

Reblogged this on Human Interest and commented:
Thank you so much! 😀
No problem! Can’t wait to read!
Hopefully I find the time to answer them! This is the second one today… Lol
No worries if you can’t !! 🙂
Well I’ll most certainly try to lol you’re anticipating it aren’t you?
Of course! Haha
I’ll try to bang out my homework early today just so I can get to it 😉
Congratulations and I think this calls for a smile from you 🙂
I’m gonna try to at least answer yours …. Not sure I can do the nomination of ten others, but I’ll try to answer yours! 😊
Wow! Thank you! I’m honored! 🙂
I’ll post something in a couple of days. I need time to answer those questions.
By the way, if your hero is Kim Kardashian, then your hero is Kim Kardashian. There’s nothing wrong with that and there’s nothing wrong with loving Kim. 🙂
Hahaha she really isn’t but I honestly couldn’t think of anyone. I’d say she’s more of a guilty pleasure !
This is an awesome way to bond with people you don’t know or people you hardly know. Thank you for nominating me. I will certainly participate in this because it will help you know me better and it will help me know some super humans in the dimensions that I want to know 😉
Amid all the chaos of my routine, I may take a few days to come up with the answers to this but it will be sooner than never.
P.S. This reminds me that I don’t know you name yet. Do I? :O
Haha no rush!!! I always take forever to do this. My name is Stella!! Yours?
My name is Tejas 🙂
I like your honesty when it came to who your favourite writers are, and quizzes like this remind me of the bulletin days of MySpace so I will definitely be participating! Thank you so much for the nomination and interesting questions.
