Versatile Blogger Award!

August 24, 2010

So, I’ve received my first award and it’s from Casee of The Girl Who Stole the Eiffel Tower! Thank you so much!

Anyway, I’m supposed to give you seven facts about myself, and then go on to nominate seven people.

Hi college! 2 more weeks!

I’m a daydreamer. I live in the future.

I’m almost always anticipating what is to come. I’m not often a “live in the moment” kinda gal, and I know that is usually what is encouraged, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. It challenges me and gives me goals to strive for.

My room! With my little baby brother! ♥

Black and white is my favorite color combination. Y’know, if you couldn’t tell.

I love the contrast between these colors so much. Things that I enjoy are usually more white-heavy than black. Even my room is black and white, except for me teal lampshade and a green vase for my bamboo plant! I feel this combination will never, ever get old. I love things that last.

I’m top left! I was in the 5th grade, yet as tall as high school freshman.

I’m a tap dancer!

I’m actually an everything dancer, but tap is my forté. I’ve been formally trained in ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, lyrical and more for 13 years. I’ve taken a break this past year, but plan to resume when I start college this fall.

My church family! We’re diverse :) Ignore how I look in this 3-year-old photo, please.

I’m really interested in other cultures.

I love learning about ancient civilizations on National Geographic and in textbooks. Sometimes I familiarize myself with other religions and beliefs just for the sake of knowledge. I’m very tolerant of everyone just because it’s what’s right, you know? Why not learn more about them in the process?

Sailor Moon by Naoko Takeuchi.

I have a birthmark shaped like an upside down bunny.

It’s on my stomach. When I was younger, I used to fantasize a lot, and I believed that I was destined to be Sailor Moon since her favorite animal was a rabbit.

So good! But so fattening! :(

I love chocolate chip cookie dough.

I eat it by itself, I get it in ice cream from Dairy Queen, and that Pop Tarts are actually really good (though highly caloric!). I’m kinda anticipating desert tonight. My mom knows me well and bought me a tub :)

Palm Pre!

I regret becoming this type of person, but I hate being apart from my cell phone.

I don’t use it for texting or talking much, but my Palm Pre is excellent for browsing the internet. I window shop, read blogs, check the news, and all sorts of other things. I frequently use my GPS & Google maps to find the nearest ______ (fill-in-the-blank). I was at my sister’s foodless apartment on Thursday, and walked half a mile to the supermarket with it!

As for the seven blogs that I’m going to nominate for this award:

Sprinkled Dreams
Sour Tang
I Want You to Know
Under the Fluorescents

This just made me realize that I didn’t follow some of you! That is now fixed. Sorry about that :(

Wish this post could be as pretty as Casee’s was, but I’ve already been working on this for about 24 hours, and I can’t look at it anymore. Thanks again <3

Aww, congrats on your award and thanks so much for giving me the award! You're a sweetie :)

I took a tap dancing class when I was a little girl. I remember loving it!

Ohhh I love pop-tarts although I rarely buy them. I like sticking to the orginals: Strawberry and also Chocolate!

Lovely post <3

Aw, I love this post! Learning all these things about you is so fun. I can completely relate to the love of black-and-white. It's such a chic combination and so timeless.

And I didn't know you're a dancer – so cool!
