My Leibster Blog Award

1 May

This is my first blog award. Thanks to My Ink Blog and True from my Heart for reading my blog and thinking it is awesome enough to be nominated.


Rules of the Leibster Blog Award 

  • List 11 facts about yourself.
  • Answer the 11 questions asked by whoever nominated you.
  • Ask 11 new questions to 9 bloggers with less than 200 followers. You cannot re-nominate the blog that nominated you.
  • Go to their blog and tell them that they have been nominated!

11 facts about me 

  1. I am a grad student.
  2. I love reading books. If left alone, I would sit curled up on my bed, propped against a few comfortable cushions and spend the rest of life, just reading.
  3. I am a certified foodie.
  4. I love analyzing. People, places, things, situations.
  5. I am die-hard Potterhead. J.K. Rowling, I am forever in your debt.
  6. Kenshin Himura is very real to me. I am obsessed with martial arts. And Samurai X is awesome. If you haven’t watched it already, please go do something about it. Immediately.
  7. I love Science. Biology especially. Seeing your DNA in a tube is one of the most humbling things I know. Knowing that something so fragile and wispy is responsible for everything you do, how you grow, how healthy you are, how you walk, how intelligent you are makes me feel awe.
  8. I love reading Fan Fictions.
  9. I love travelling. I want to backpack around Europe and go around the world.
  10. I love mismatched socks.
  11. I find it easier to convey what I feel through writing than talking.
