Leibster Award (by Anoop and Imabookworm)

After procrastinating it for so long, I am finally ready with this post that too, saying thanks to 2 bloggers in one post (Go on, call me lazy)

A Vote Of Gratitude:

Anoop at ‘Tranquil Yet Alive’ nominated me for this lovely award. It hasn’t been long since I followed his blog. But, in this short time I can say that he is a brilliant writer, a great person and a automobile-maniac. He has a great blog where he writes about many aspects of life, hobbies, and interests. One of my favourite post by him:  ‘Date A Man Who Rides A Bullet’. It actually tells about his deep passion for his bike. He has an amazing blog which you would not like to miss out on.

Imabookworm and Dragonspark at http://imab00kworm.wordpress.com/ nominated me for the Leibster Award. As always, it feels great to be nominated. Thank you so much guys for considering me 🙂 Both Imabookworm and Dragonspark are fabulous writers. They write both fiction and poetry. Some great post by them are  Mini-messy and Russian Snowflake.

Rules:

  1. Thank the Liebster Award presenter who nominated you and link back to his or her blog. (Done)
  2. Post 11 facts about yourself, answer the 11 questions you were asked and create 11 questions for your nominees.
  3. Nominate small (no more than 200 followers) blogs who you feel deserve to be noticed and leave a comment on their blog letting them know that they have been chosen.
  4. Display the Liebster Award logo.
  5. No tag-backs, meaning you can’t just re-nominate the person who nominated you.

Questions by Anoop:

1. Are you addicted to something? If yes, What? (other than alcohol, cigars and drugs)

No. And I would hate anybody who come in close proximity to these things especially cigars and drugs.

2. What does money mean to you? Why? (No one liners please)

Melinda Gates in an interview said, “From those to whom much is given, much is expected”
So yes, money is a big responsibility but also, a necessity.

3. What is your passion? What do you like to do the most apart from eating and sleeping?

Reading, writing, music, and imagining stuff. I would say that I dream a lot. Even if I know that those things are not going to happen, still it feel great to think about good possibilities.

4. What quality of your best friend/friends do you admire?

My best friend: She is a troublemaker. But, when she gets into trouble, she always has a way to get out of it. That’s the best thing about her. Apart for that, she has a great sense of humour and I always have a great time with her.

5. Have you ever felt guilty for doing something in life that keeps troubling you even now?

I don’t like to go on guilt-trips. If something’s already been done, there is no point in feeling guilty about stuff you can no more change.

6. What is that one good thing that you can proudly say to anyone about yourself, I mean a lesson from your life that people can learn?

There is a picture that inspires me whenever things aren’t going great. The quote sounds clichéd but whenever my friends read this, it does cheer them up a bit and it says: “This too shall pass”

7. Have you ever been in a relationship with someone? If yes what did you learn/admire / hate about being in a relationship?

No relationship so far and I don’t think I intend to have one in near future. I just hate that they don’t last.

8. Whom do you admire the most in your family? (Doesn’t need to be your parents or siblings, can be cousins or anyone in the family)

My sister: she is the best. Being the elder child, she suffered a lot of parental pressure but yet, she turned out to be a great person and a great sister. I admire her and I love her.

9. What kind of person are you? (Funny/humorous/serious/shy…….)

Honestly, I don’t know. My nature changes with the people I am with. With some, I am a crazy, funny, risk-taking girl. With stranger, I am completely serious. With people I know but I don’t really talk to, I am shy. So that’s all of them.

10. If you were given a chance to go out on a dinner with, Who would that lucky one be?

Enrique Iglesias. I love his music and I love his voice.

Dan Brown. I want to know how he comes up with such great ideas

11. Which is your favorite post from your blog? If I would insist that you pick one out of the lot. Which one would that be?

All of them are poems. So, I will choose one of the oldest poems from my blog ‘Red‘. It’s that like the best poem or anything. But, it’s one of the earliest and very close to heart. Also, I wrote it during studies for my maths exam (which, by the way, went awesome :P)

Questions by Imabookworm and Dragonspark

What’s a good book ending/ what’s the best book ending you’ve read?

There are many I would say. But this time I’ll go with ‘Angels and Demons’ by Dan Brown. I mean, with the last 100 pages I had such adrenaline rush going.

What’s the most interesting thing you’ve ever done or that has ever happened to you?

Not that I can recall right now. It’s been a year since I started reading books again and in the past month I have read 12 books which feels great. And pretty interesting for me too.

What is/would be (if you had one) first on your bucket list?

I got a huge bucket list. But the first is pretty much to get into college. Once that is done, I can easily move on to other things like learn swimming, run a marathon, travel the world and it goes on.

If you could change one thing in the world what would it be?

I would like to stop racism and sexism. It does sound preachy, but this is something which is destroying the lives of so many people.

What time period would you live in if you had the choice (“now” and “the future” are not valid answers) and why?

If in the past, I would go to the time of Adam and Eve, see how it’s like to be the first ever human race possible. In future, I want the time when we can actually record our dreams. It would be so cool to record all the weird stuff we imagine.

You’re stranded on a desert island with four books, two movies, and an album. What are they?

4 books: The fault in our stars (already read it twice, still can’t keep it down :P)

one book by each:  Dan Brown book, Khaled Hosseini, Harry Potter (i.e. JK Rowling)

I don’t think I would watch movies when I have books and music with me. But the movies I can say are Bandidas (I can watch it as many time as I can),  Knight and Day (One of the very few I have watched) or anything with Johnny Depp would do.

Album(s):  I just won’t agree with taking just one. You have got to understand, it’s a lonely island. So I would go with Night Vision by Imagine dragons, One of the boys by Katy Perry and any one by Enrique Iglesias.

If you could play any role in any movie, what would that role be and why?

There’s a movie ‘Bandidas’. It’s such a great movie. Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayak are riding horses, shooting, aiming knifes at people. Basically, everything I would love to do (not the stealing part though). Plus, I find the movie really funny.

You can go on a three week road trip. Where are you going and what’s your ride?

Europe. I have no idea if you can cover France, Switzerland, Italy in a single road trip. But, I would sure like to visit these places.

It’s the best day of your life. What happens?

If I have to imagine stuff it’ll be when I write a book, get it published and the book becomes a bestseller 😀

You are stranded on a desert island with a box (of any shape or size). What’s in the box? (The answer can’t be the same as the desert island question above

My phone, earphone and something for an internet connection. Yep, I am officially addicted to this stuff.

I figured you might have gotten tired with the “why do you blog?” (either DragonSpark too or he just didn’t think about it) but if you want to answer it as a bonus question feel free.

I started out as a random hear-me-out kind of approach. But, later I realized that maybe my poems have started to be a little meaningful.  So, now I blog to show my poems. Also, I get to stay in touch with some really cool people.
