the outstanding blogger award #5-8!

Hiya! Welcome back to my blog! πŸ’–

Soooo it’s been a while since I wrote about a blog award. I mean I did do the art lover award recently, but that’s more like a specialty award, you know what I mean? πŸ˜‚

Anywayyy (I’m working on my intros lol), when Esmeralda tagged me for the Outstanding Blogger Award last week, I decided to write about it today! I then discovered that three other awesome bloggers tagged me for this award over the months… so today’s post is an epic q&a mashup! πŸ˜‚

I hope you have fun reading, and I totally understand if you wanna skim read! Let me know in the comments if we have any answers in common!

rules:

  • Provide the link to the creator’s original award post.
  • Answer the questions provided.
  • Create 7 unique questions.
  • Nominate 10 bloggers. Ensure that they are aware of their nomination. Neither the award’s creator, nor the blogger that nominated you, can be nominated.
  • At the end of 2020, every blog that ping-backs the creator’s original post will be entered to win the 2020 Outstanding Blogger Award! (I’m guessing this isn’t valid anymore since 2020 is done? πŸ˜‚)

miriam’s questions
& my answers

I’ve really loved getting to know Miriam @ Inside Miriam’s Mind! Thanks so much for tagging me Miriam πŸ˜„ πŸ’• If you haven’t already checked out her blog, please do! She writes awesome lifestyle posts that are so fun to read.

1. If you had the whole world’s attention for 30 seconds, what would you say? “Hi world! Today’s a new day, and there will never be another one just like it! So make the most of each moment and have a great time doing it.” πŸ’–

2. If you could meet any celebrity/famous person, dead or alive, who would it be? Why? Billy Connolly! He’s a hilarious Scottish comedian and I just love him πŸ˜‚

3. If you had all the money in the world, what would you buy first? A home with farmland! I want a horse really bad 😍 haha

OOH look at this beautiful horse! 🀩 (not my pic)

4. If you became famous, what would it be for? Maybe for a creative project, or for a story I’ve written! I’m not sure anything I’ve ever created or done has ever been viral-worthy though lol

5. If you could learn any language fluently, what language would it be? GAHHH that’s hard! French is beautiful, but Spanish would be more practical because of where I live… but I really wanna learn French. πŸ˜‚ French it is!

6. If you could only say one word for the rest of your life, what word would it be? ‘Help.’ πŸ˜‚ It’s weird but semi-practical! Basically if someone didn’t know that all I could say was that, I’d be able to ask them for ‘help’ 🀣

7. If you could choose any animal as a pet, what animal would it be? A hedgehog!!! This is my standard answer, but I don’t care, they’re so amazing πŸ€©πŸ€©πŸ’œ

3. Who is your role model and why? My mom! I really look up to her because how much she loves our family is so inspiring to me. πŸ’–

me and my mom at a nature reserve!
