The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

Hooray! I was nominated for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award by driftinglexi. Thank you so much Lexi, it means so much that you thought of me/considered me for this award! I’m honored. I love reading your posts and I’m happy I met you through Blogging 101. ❤

I think that what this award represents/means is the importance of the presence and connection between female bloggers. I’ve seen so many cool posts written from the female perspective on WordPress so far, and it’s nice to know that my fellow gal bloggers have my back and are willing to check out my blog and read and comment on my posts.

The rules:

1) Thank and link the blogger who nominated you. ✓

2) Answer the questions the nominator has provided. ✓

3) Nominate 10 other bloggers. ✓

4) Create 10 questions for your nominees and notify them of their nomination. ✓

The questions:

1) What makes you motivated to blog?

I would say that what motivates me to blog is other bloggers/readers. Knowing that there are people out there who actually care about what I have to say and are willing to read and respond what I write is pretty cool, and makes me want to write more/often.

2) What is your favourite thing to write about on your blog?

My favorite thing to write about on my blog (so far) are about what I’ve learned at college. I think that writing about that stuff helps me better reflect on and learn from my experiences at school. Plus, writing about what I learn while away at school provides relatable experiences for other bloggers/other readers.

3) What is your favourite food?

My favorite foods are artichokes and cotton candy. (But not together– that would be gross.)

4) If you had to pick a favourite book, what would it be?

My all time favorite book is The Princess Bride by William Goldman.

5) What was the last song you listened to?

One by One All Day by the Shins. I bought their CD Oh, Inverted World last year at a used bookstore in Ithaca, and I’ve just now gotten around to listening to it. It’s amazing.

6) What item is closest to you at this very moment (excluding what you are sat on and using to answer this question)?

My library ID card/key chain.

7) Do you have any tattoos?

No, I don’t.

8) What are you currently reading?

I’m still working on The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer, but the next book on my list is The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.

9) Do you prefer going to a shop to buy items or buying them online?

I prefer buying things online. I hate trying clothes on in stores/at the mall and then being disappointed when they don’t fit… I have this ongoing struggle with buying jeans/pants because those are two items of clothing that you HAVE to try on before you buy them, and when I try jeans/pants on that don’t fit, I get all discouraged and don’t want to shop anymore.

10) What are you next looking forward to?

I’m at work right now and I can’t wait until my shift is over (I have an hour and 49 minutes left… Oy vey) so that I can go out to dinner with my stepmom, my brother and my dad for father’s day. Earlier, my dad, my grandpa, my grandpa’s friend Doris, my Aunt Julie, my Uncle Peter and my cousins Jacob and Ben came and visited me at the library (that’s where I work) and they just hung around for an hour and it was really great. I don’t get to see them often enough.

I nominate:

Your questions:

  1. Favorite social media platform?
  2. Favorite movie? Most recent movie you’ve seen?
  3. What’s been the best day of your life so far? Describe it!
  4. Ryan Gosling or Jake Gyllenhaal?
  5. Name a female that you look up to/you see as a mentor/role model! (Celeb, mom, whatever.)
  6. Best compliment you’ve ever received?
  7. What makes you feel better when you’re feeling sad?
  8. What’s your favorite word?
  9. Bookstores or libraries?
  10. What do you most like writing about?

Enjoy ladies– you deserve it!
