Mmmm do you hear that? The siren’s call? The low, seductive whispers chanting “Maybe later, maybe later, maybe later”; the lilting, enticing musical tone drawing you in as the words bathe you in a warm light: gentle and purple (or blue, or yellow or green or whatever your light is).
Too many nights spent listening to the voice lull you to sleep, deep and peaceful. Too many days spent with the curtains drawn, swaddled in blankets and soft pillows, shut away from everything and everyone.
Oh the joys of procrastination.
My A-levels start in a month. Preparation for that has been going on which is one reason posts have been so scarce lately (I was clearly such a dedicated and regular blogger prior to that, really)–though my mother seems to think all I’ve been doing is blog and paint. Oh if only.
And of course, the strong, overwhelming urge to do nothing except sit and breathe only comes around when Very Important Things need to be done–and done quickly. Who decided it was a good idea to make education such a tiring feat? When did it turn from enlightenment and higher thinking to a stress-inducing cesspit of sleep deprivation and deadly competition?
If I were to spend this post listing out the flaws of our current education system, we’ll be here forever, so let’s just get to the point of this post:
The Liebster Award
I was nominated by Zoe over at Zoe169 (go on, venture forth into her blog bravely, and unhesitatingly my brave souls, she mainly posts amazing quotes) but since I have done this award before I decided to not make another post about (in the sense that I answer the questions and all that)–but I’m very happy you thought of me though, Zoe. Even if I can’t fathom why (it must be my disarmingly charming put-er off-er skillz, or perhaps my beautiful inconsistent posting schedule). I apologize for not getting to this sooner.
But I didn’t want to break the chain, though so instead I’ll just skip ahead to the part where you pass on the honour. I’d like to nominate the following blogs I recently discovered:
- Jim McDonald
- Fantage Chatter (to whom I owe my blog’s header–which I love)
- IHaveABadSenseOfHumour (they don’t)
- Chua Han Au
I know that isn’t the required amount of nominations but when do I ever actually follow through with that rule anyway?
♦ Thank the blogger that nominated you.
♦ Write 11 random facts about yourself.
♦ Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger that nominated you.
♦ Nominate 5 to 11 other bloggers and let them know they’ve been nominated.
♦ Come up with 11 questions for the bloggers you’re nominating.
The Questions: (as created by Zoe)
- What is your favourite season?
- What would your ideal partner look like?
- How long have you been blogging?
- What is your favourite meal?
- Do you prefer your mum or your dad? (sorry awkward question)
- Would you prefer to have a boy or a girl? (children)
- What is your favourite colour?
- What is your favourite drink?
- Are you an extrovert or an introvert?
- What is your greatest fear?
- Black or white?
And that’s all about the award.
Thank you for bearing with me.
P.S Also, apparently I have over 200 followers now (eek?!), so thank you for that. You misguided fools.
