I'm gone for a couple days and already an AWARD!

After my brief exam disappearance I'm back. One more exam to go and semester break...oh how I love thee! Wish me luck cause I'm gonna need it.

HUMONGOUS, MASSIVE, HUGE (can I go any bigger, lol) THANKS to Amanda Sablan of the That Unpublished Writer blog for awarding me my very first ever blogger award. Isn't it pretty!

The Rules:

1) Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award.

2) Share 7 things about yourself.

3) Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason! (In no particular order...)

4) Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.
So, I guess I will start with sharing 7 things about myself. What to write hmmm...
1. Lets start with the obvious - I love to read and write...Contempory, scifi, fantasy, YA. The only genre I really don't get into is crime.
2. I love food. I'm big on baking especially, but recently I've had to go gluten free due to an intolerance...how ironic! lol.
3. On the 21st of November this year I am going on a mega holiday for 2 months around Europe and USA. I can't wait!
4. I'm 19, though I have been told that I act way older than I am. 19 going on 39.
5. I'm in my second year of university majoring in writing and psychology. We'll see how that all pans out. I'm hoping for the best :)
6. My love life is a mess, lol. Though it's better than nothing.
7. I love to play with fire ;) Their is a yummy vanilla candle burning next to me right now.
Now on to the fantastic bloggers I've recently stumbled upon who also deserve this fantastic award:
  (Not quite 15, but close enough)
Keep up the great work everyone!


  1. Awww - thanks Bec! You're a sweetie!

    Good luck with that final exam - those are sometimes the hardest to gear up for!

    I'm excited for you and your big trip (okay a little jealous too!) - that will be so much fun! :)

  2. Congrats on the award! And yay for finishing exams.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and following!

  3. Congratulations on your award. Have a great trip. Where are you going in The States?

  4. Thank you for your award! That's great! And your upcoming trip sounds so great. Enjoy it, you'll remember it the rest of your life!

  5. Thanks SO much! I'm so bad at doing these award thingies, but I really do appreciate them.

    Your upcoming trip sounds awesome. Enjoy!

  6. I've been told that I act older than I look too. :)

    A mega holiday. That's what I need... Anyhow, oodles of luck on your exam!

  7. Muchas gracias for the award!

    I'm a baking lover, too...but gluten free? That would probably kill me. :)

    Happy writing!

  8. Wow! I love the look of your blog - love it!! I popped over from Karen Hooper's blog to say hello, and it looks like I know almost everybody here - awesome! I'm sorry it took me so long to find my way over.

    Congrats on your award! :-)

  9. Thanks so much for the award. That's my first.

  10. Great fun on your trip. Congrats on surviving your exams. I slogged through a Bachelor's in English education and a Master's in Psychology. Ouch!

  11. Thanks for stopping by everyone. Well Theresa I'm going to the west and east coast of the US - New York, DC, Seattle, San Fran, and LA. I'm going to Europe first though, that's going to be the real callenge. Major culture shift. However exciting!

  12. Thanks for the pretty award! I majored in psychology too. :) It's fun to pair writing with psych.

  13. Ahh! I don't know how I missed this award. But thank you so much! It means a lot and I don't have this one yet. I'll pass it on soon.

    And I loved your answers. How I wish I was in your shoes for #3! :o)

    Have a great week!
