The Leibster Award : Well… Thanks!

I had no idea there was something like this actually. An award for blogs where your friends or readers could nominate you. Well thanks to Gokulane. He nominated me for this award and it feels good when people want to motivate you like this.

The Liebster Award is an award that exists only on the internet and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

So here goes the random 11 facts about me…

  2. Why do you blog?
    I talk a lot. And usually no one is ready sit and listen to someone ramble on and on about what they saw or how they feel. Writing a journal didn’t work well for me since it is again staying locked up. So I started blogging how I felt about a lot of things.

    Okay I honestly don’t have “a” favorite book. I can give more than one title under this category. Starts with Jane Eyre, Harry Potter series, Chicken Soup for Teenage Soul and so on…
  4. What do you value most in life?
    Definitely not the big things. Life  is full of this little things that makes you smile and cherish it. And those are exactly what I value the most. Not some object, some jewelry or anything. But a fortune chit that came in a fortune cookie, a train ticket, a few beautiful memories are my most valued possessions.
  5. What does a normal day in your life look like?
    Well, I wake up sometime around 7. If I had prepared any veggies for lunch I would proceed to make rotis to go with it while sipping on green tea. Then get ready and go to office by 10. Come back home by 8 or 9. Have a tall glass of milk while watching any series (one episode per day) and go to bed after a hot shower. Where I will be reading some book till I fall asleep. That’s all I guess!
  6. Whats your most favorite food?
    Depending on the time of the day it always coils down to Mutton Briyani or Pizza. Most of the time.
  7. Whats the most memorable gift which you have ever received?
    Ummmm… Every gift I have received has been pretty memorable for me. Every single one of them.
  8. What do you admire most about yourself?
    No matter how much I cry or feel depressed, I still go on. Whether or not I get help I somehow get up and walk. I have no idea how I have been doing it, but then I think that’s something great…

  10. Whats your dream travel destination?

  11. Whats your peace spot, the place you like to visit when you are down?
    Before I shifted away from my parents’ house I used to go and sit on the over head tank whenever I feel down or even bored. Sometimes I go there and lie down to star gaze all night. One of the spots that calms me down easily. I miss that place.
