The Liebster Award #3!

In the last two weeks I've been set about 5 essays and a million years worth of reading to do so I haven't had any time to blog - I'm sorry for my absence! I have a few posts lined up for the next couple of weeks or so, hopefully having one written every few days to give me little breaks from revision over the Easter holidays!

I've been nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Kate again which is awesome and very kind of her! 

The Rules
You need to link back to the nominator 
State 11 Facts about yourself
Answer the 11 questions given to you 
Nominate 11 new bloggers with less than 200 followers 
And give those nominated 11 new questions

11 facts about me
1. I have a serious love for Pink Marc de Champagne truffles from Charbonnel and Walker currently, they're the nicest things and they aren't too expensive!
2. I spent most of last week in the library when I wasn't in lessons and it actually wasn't bad! I used to hate it in there but I've learnt to love it this year.
3. I lost a couple of followers this week and it makes me sad that people have stopped liking my blog because I can't post frequently.
4. I have my exams in a month and a half and I don't feel as stressed as I know I should be - this blog will definitely be part of my exam breaks!
5. I'm actually looking forward to spending two solid weeks revising...I love my subjects so much so it will be good!
6. I'm deathly afraid of spiders. I was in the library three days ago and I almost cried because a big one was on the wall next to me.
7. I have a strip of clear floor going round my room but that's it...I need to tidy up.
8. I haven't read any books for fun since The Rosie Project and that makes me sad - I hate not having time to even pick up a book!
9. I'm determined to organise myself properly with these upcoming exams and I plan to make lots of resources, lists and timetables to sort myself a schedule!
10. I've managed to find a make up look I like and only takes 5 minutes at the most for when I'm running late! It also all fits in my tiny make up bag so I can do it at college if needed!
11. My favourite piece of clothing at the moment is my pair of lounge trousers! They're the comfiest thing to wear around the house when I'm not going anywhere!

Kate's questions
1) What's your favourite song at the moment?

Umm....I have So Long by Ingrid Michaelson stuck in my head currently so I'll go for that!

2) How happy are you on a scale of 1 - 10 right now?

I'm pretty happy but I'm also relatively stressed which always brings my mood down a bit so maybe a 7?

3) What's the saddest thing you've heard in the past week?

There hasn't been anything that I can think of which is actually really good! 

4) Write about the person you think of the most.

Oh gosh. I will probably say a group and they're honestly some of the best friends I have. I don't see them often at all now I'm at a different college but when I do get together with them (like my birthday film day), it's as if I was never away from them and I think that's when you know they're true friends and you belong in the group with them. They're the only group I truly feel like I belong in and don't have doubts about ever which doesn't mean I don't like my other groups of friends, but I fit with this lot like clockwork. 

5) Do you overuse any words or phrases?
I can't think of any! I'm quite sarcastic though...

6) Where do you want to be in ten years' time?
Either travelling and doing Archaeology or working in a museum - as long as I'm near history I don't mind what I'm doing at all!

7) What's your favourite time of the day and why?

Probably when the sun is going down - the sky is so pretty and it changes colour daily, sometimes it's orange like the sky is on fire and other times it's bright pink and purple!

8) Do you have any disgusting habits? Please divulge.

I click my fingers and toes quite a lot which is bad...

9) Talk about your earliest memory.

When I was in playgroup, we had a day where we got to dress up in saris and my friend took the one I liked - I still remember that it was red with gold stars but I can't remember the one I had in the end!

10) Is anything hurting you right now?

I haven't seen my boyfriend much this week even though we're at the same college which is a bit of a bummer...

11) How does blogging impact on your daily life?

I randomly think of good blog posts and have to write them down, I'm on the look out for good pictures and absolutely anything can inspire me to write a post. I've actually written several posts on my notes on my phone when I have 10 minutes of inspiration!

  1. Ah I love Ingrid Michaelson! xxxx

    1. She's amazing! I have a couple of her CDs in my car! She's probably one of my favourite artists! :D xxxxx

  2. eugh spiders completely terrify me too, I feel like I should be able to cope with insects but I seriously can't haha. Also its totally dumb that people are unfollowing you just because you can't post regularly, sometimes real life has to take priority xo

    1. I know! With my archaeological digs, I have to sleep in a tent and there are bugs all the time, it's the worst! :( Yeah, it's disappointing but each to their own I suppose - exams will always come first though! xx

  3. First of all, congratulations dear! I really enjoyed reading this post. Don't worry about the unfollowers, the same happened to me last year when my Granddad died and I couldn't post anything new for a while. But the true followers stayed or came back later, like me in your blog! :)

    1. Thank you! It's so annoying! It isn't our fault that we don't always have time or even material to write about, it's not like we've abandoned our blogs forever! Thank you so much lovely!! xx
