Wow, this is awesome!!! Hold on, let me just get a grip…
Okay…I have been nominated for the Real Neat Blog Award by a good friend Little Miss Mystery. It has been an incredibly long time since someone nominated me for an award. Now that I think of it, the last time I was nominated was about two-and-a-half years ago, when I started blogging. Well I am just incredibly thankful to my nominator, and just glad that I am back to blogging full time.
The rules are:
- Put the Award Logo on your blog
- Answer seven questions by the person who nominated you
- Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blog
- Nominate any number of blogs for the award, linking to their blog
- Let them know that you nominated them for the award
1. If you were an animal, what would you be and why?
Hmmm…a bit hard considering I’ve never thought about it. Okay, a dog. I don’t have an iron clad reason for why I want to be a dog, but I’d love to have a dog to pet. If I can pick a mythical animal, a dragon would be incredibly cool!!!
2. Sweet or savoury?
I actually had to google what savoury actually meant. I knew it had to do with salty-spicy food, but I wasn’t precisely sure. Savoury, any time. We Indians love spicy food.
3. Who/what is your biggest inspiration in life?
Triple H, Shawn Michaels, C M Punk. All wrestlers. Considering what they have accomplished despite the odds, and how they manage to deal with incredibly tough schedules and still come out on top…I am just astounded.
4. Why did you begin to blog?
Well, we have to take a little trip down memory lane for that one. It was just over three years ago. I was in college, and I was frustrated with life. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, I had zero coping skills, I was unyielding and really unhappy. Besides, I have a feeling deep inside me that I am really not meant to be ordinary, and that I am meant to be a celebrity. Acting, writing, whatever. And I feel someway, without doing anything, I will be a star overnight. When those aspirations began to crumble down, I felt I needed to do something about it. So I started writing, to become famous. Atleast now some people aound the world know me, by my pseudonym, Bill Gladstone.
So in conclusion, because I needed to deal with my emotions, and needed a release for things, and to become famous. So far, I’d say I achieved the first two.
5. What is the most life-changing event you’ve encountered?
Life changing…hmmm…again nothing of interest. Nothing that will make people go “Wow”. But I have to say, we took a trip to Tamil Nadu, way back in 2007-08. Our whole family. I cut a couple of days of school, and this was a first to me. I was a complete nerd back then. I had absolutely no sense of humour back then, was a total teacher’s pet and … absolutely inflexible. But somehow that trip changed me. I actually had fun during that trip. And everyone says I changed after that trip. I became a bit more relaxed, developed a great sense of humour ( I do mimicry and skits for my family on get-togethers), and actually realized that it is okay to have fun.
6. What is your favourite colour and why?
Red. And I have absolutely no idea. Has been ever since I was a kid.
7. What do you believe in and why?
I believe in two things. God, and smart work.
I believe that God has a plan for all of us. He assists us all along the way, along the most important cross roads. And he always gives us what we need (not necessarily what we want). I also believe that everything will work out in the end.
Note I didn’t say hard work. I said smart work. I do not spend hours and hours toiling over studies, or spend an elaborate amount of time doing projects. I develop an idea of what to accomplish, and then the few hours I actually spend executing the idea, I do it with full force. That’s about it.
Now I’d like to nominate a couple of blogs I have been following…
I don’t know it I can back-nominate…since I want to nominate Little Miss Mystery back!!!
