The Liebster Award

A newbie in your world- the blogosphere, I have only learnt to say a few words, I need constant care-taking and I'm still crawling. This is my first taste of chocolate and it's soo good I tell you! Who doesn't like chocolates anyway? My first chocolate is the Liebster and Crimson Curls brought it to me. She's an aspiring architect who has an HD quality imagination power, in her own words. As she says, she is obsessed with her own dimples. No, she's not showing them to us. She's also a newbie and was as excited about her chocolate as I am for mine. Thank you for sharing this feeling with me, Crimson Curls! I think I'm going to scream and shout and cry for more of these.    


                              
Okay, so here's the Liebster Award (chocolate for me) Official Rules:

If you have been nominated for The Liebster Award and you choose to accept it, write a blog post about the Liebster award in which you:

1. Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.

2. Display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)

3. Answer 11 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.

4. Provide 11 random facts about yourself.

5. Nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 1000 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!)

6. Create a new list of questions for the blogger to answer.

7. List these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to:

8. Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!



Alright then, here's my acceptation deed:

My Answers to Crimson Curls' Questions


  1. Whats the one thing that can make you happy at any situation?
    Ans-
    Fooood! Bring me a well prepared dish, any cuisine, anywhere anytime and watch me smile ear to ear. I love food. Whatever my mood- sad, angry, excited, pityful, troubled, sleepy, tired, depressed, cold, bored or already happy, food can make me happy/happier substituting just any or all of the emotions.
     
  2. Name the person who inspires you the most.
    Ans-
    Has to be my mom. She's a single mother, working as the Headmistress in a reputed school. I am amused at everything about her, her poise, her attitude, her IQ, her love for her children, her grace, her honesty and dedication. She's my inspiration, like every mother is to her daughter.
     
  3. If you could be someone else (except your own self), whom would you choose to be?
    Ans-
    There are many, but all fictional. That's OK, right? If I were a male, I would choose Atticus Finch from the book 'To Kill a Mocking Bird' or Harvey Specter from the T.V series 'Suits'. But because I'm not, I'll choose either Jane Eyre, Nancy Drew or Monica Geller (Oh don't judge!).
     
  4. Your favorite color is? Ans- Orange
     
  5. Your hobbies include?
    Ans-
    Included in my hobbies would most definitely be reading, writing, playing basket ball, Instagramming, watching T.V series, clicking photographs, eating and TRAVELLING- to name a few.
     
  6. How you feel just after finishing one blog article?
    Ans-
    I feel a step closer to where I want to be. And also, phew!
     
  7. Whats your take on 'Love & Life" ?
    Ans-
    Love brings life to Life. Love for your parents, love for your friends, love for the under-privileged, love for all creatures big or small, love for yourself, love for books, love for what you do. The two are inseparable.
     
  8. You forgive people easily or one has to plead for long time?
    Ans-
    Oh I do not even remember what wrong did people do to me, to be able to forgive them for that! I do not remember asking anybody ever, to be sorry. Pleading for forgiveness is no where near. I don't expect (yes that's humanely possible, ask me), so they don't disappoint me, I'm not hurt and hence they needn't be sorry!
      
  9. What would you choose: 'sweet','salty', 'bitter' or 'sour' ?
    Ans-
    Bitter. More because I cannot have any of the others in excess. Bitter, I can handle that.
      
  10. If one thing you could change about yourself, what would that be?Ans- I'd be more result-oriented rather than being lost half-way through. I have an unstable mind, and I ask for some stability now.  
  11. Do you like sarcasm?
    Ans-
    Love it! Until I'm following, obviously.

11 Random Facts about Me

I have already mentioned some in the 'about me' page, but Okay, here are some others-
1. I love to do karaoke. Like, LOVE.

2. I love collecting lip-glosses and lip balms. 

3. I maintain a diary in which I right down what I learnt from the day's experiences. That way I  make a conscious effort to learn something everyday. 

4. I once jumped out of a moving car only because my friend, the one who was driving, challenged me to. I'm not crazy, the car wasn't moving at a speed higher than 30Kmph.

5. Hritik Roshan is the Greek God for me. Once, I stood in heavy rains for 3 hours only to be able to meet him. I can do the same for Ryan Gosling.

6. Living in Vadodara, the cultural capital of Gujarat, I love Garba. That's my favourite time of the year.

7. I've played basketball at national level.

8. My family members all called me by different names when I was younger than I am. Few of them are- Gal fullo, Rani, miyaLaado, chinky, soya et al.   

9. Idleness exhausts me like nothing else does. I need to keep working. 

10. I put Jalapenos and olives in almost anything that it can be put in, even in my maggi. And always extra in my subs.  

11. This year was my first vote, and I voted for Narendra Modi from Vadodara, of course. Whatever you say, I'm all for Modi!
