I got nominated for The Outstanding Blogger Award by dear Sovely from MurmelMeister and I received the following questions from her:
- If there is anything transcendental existing, what is it you believe in?
Sorry to disappoint everyone here, but I do not believe in such (spiritual) things any more. I used to believe that there is God somewhere above us, and sometimes, I find myself wishing there really was one. However, I like how the different cultures are thinking about those things and I quite enjoy the stories. But they are just stories. And sad as it might be – when we die, we turn to dust, and the only thing we can hope for is that we won’t be forgotten.
- What is the perfect gift?
Well, that’s it – it’s not about the gift, about the thing. It’s all about the person who’s giving and the person who’s being given the gift. And as for me, I have some ideas for perfect gifts that I would like to give and the ones I would like to get. For example, a simple question. Or an everlasting promise.
- Which favourite tradition do you like to hold on to?
It would be appropriate to name Christmas. Although there are many traditions connected with it that really matter to me, this year, I really don’t have much to hold on to. At this point, I am sometimes so desperate that the only things that keep me alive are those regular phone calls with people I love. Does it count as a tradition?
- Somewhere over the rainbow you find…?!
Well the seven wonders that create the seven colors of the rainbow. I could imagine that each color has its source. Maybe a person or a thing or a feeling. All I know for sure is that it would be really inspiring.
(And I must admit I like the phrase “go over the rainbow” when someone (I see it when pets and animals die) passes away.)
- What’s your favourite time of the year?
There are so many! I am always excited when something new begins – new term of the university, the term break after those 13+ weeks of studying. The times when I am looking forward to seeing my family and my friends or when I go on a holiday (the planning and the travelling itself). I love when the seasons change and you can literally see and feel it in the air. I like the first day of a month, Mondays and New Year’s Days, for I love to challenge myself starting at those “milestones”.
- Please describe “the right combination” from your perspective!?
The right combination for what? There are so many. Pizza + pineapple. Summer + strawberries. Me + my boyfriend. 😀 Sometimes the right combination is unique (for the moment) and cannot be described or recreated.
- Which kind of shoes do you prefer and why?
Uff, that’s an easy one! I definitely prefer sneakers. They don’t need to be Converse, all I need is comfort and safety (no blisters etc.) I’ve always wanted to be that “lady in the heels” but it’s never worked out well and somehow, I don’t feel the urge to change this by force. It’s just who I am – comfort first.
My nominees are:
+ everyone who is interested in participating. I chose primarily those bloggers who write some of their content in English (as this is an English project).
My questions for my nominees are:
- Do you have a TBR jar? What books are there waiting to be read?
- Where do you see yourself in 2 hours, 2 months and in 2 years from now?
- What’s the silliest thing you’ve ever done at the public?
- If you could choose your country of origin (and your mother-tongue), which one would it be? (And why?)
- What would you be able to live without?
- What is your super power?
- Can you remember your dreams when you wake up?
