Teenage Blogger Award

by - 8:00 PM

Last night when I was talking to E. he said I should write a post on what we did that night (I know that that sounds a little wrong, but don't worry, we didn't do anything weird), because it would be 'funny'. I don't really see how I could make it funny and I don't think anyone is interested in a story about us going to a comicbookstore and our conversation in the Kentucky Fried Chicken. My blog is personal, but not that personal that I want to share the entire night (I said some things that were so personal that I could barely say them out loud, telling them to E. was more than enough 'opening up to others' for the rest of the month), though I have to admit that I had a great time. It's really nice to see a guy who holds the door open for you instead of smacking it shut in your face.
Besides, I've got something else I want to share, because, thanks to the people from Teenage Blogger Central, I won an award :)

1) Thank the person who gave you this award and copy the rules to a new post on your own blog.
2) Answer the 3 introduction questions and the 4 questions asked by the kind person who awarded you.
3) Tag between 1 and 100 other bloggers aged twenty or younger who, as far as you know, are not already Teenage Blogger Central members or have not already been tagged.
4) Think of 4 more questions to ask your lucky recipients and inform them that they have won an award!

Introduction questions
1)Which 5 words would you use to describe your personality? Is your blogging personality anyway different from your real-life one?
Impulsive, insecure, enthousiastic, curious, unimaginative.
My blogger personality is different than my real-life one, but not that much. 'Envy' is more aggresive, but she also takes her time to think about things and consider other options, while in real life, all I do is rush into things and find myself regretting it later because I usually get myself into trouble when I rush into things. Envy is also a lot more open and honest. I often find it difficult to be open en honest towards aother people, but I'm trying to open up a little more. My blog is definitely helping with that.

2)Where in the world do you live and who with?
I live with my parents in a small place close to Rotterdam. Some people say it looks like a 'farmer's community' because there are quite a few farms with lots and lots of cows around here.
Our town is one of the bigger ones around here, but for a town that calls itself 'big and important' it's quite pathetic that it doesn't even has its own ice-skating rink.

3)When did you start blogging and why?
I started blogging last November, to help me clear my mind. There was so much going on at that time and I just couldn't handle it on my own anymore, so I decided to pour out my heart on the internet. I was still thinking about everything that happened in the summer of 2011 and where it all went wrong, why I was still having hyperventilation attacks. I had no one to talk to, so I wrote on my blog every time I felt the need to talk.

Extra questions
4) What do you hope to accomplish by the time you're 40?
There's so much that I want, but so little that's realistic. I want to become writer, or if I don't succeed at that, I want to become an English teacher. I want to travel the world, and by that I don't just mean visiting the countries I've already been to for the second time. I really want to see Machu Picchu, stand on the Great Wall of China and eat sushi in Japan. No wait, skip that last part, I don't even like sushi... but you get the idea.

5) What song is currently stuck in your head?
'Some Nights' by FUN. It's a special song to me because they used the song in Australia in some kind of commercial to encourage people to watch the Olympics.
Last night when I was in a store in Rotterdam with E., they played this song and it's been stuck inside my head ever since.

6) Have you ever done anything dishonest/foolish? Did you learn from it, and were the consequences funny to look back on?
If running into things and people counts as foolish, then yes. Other than that I'm not really foolish. Since 8th grade T. has been making a list of all the stupid things I've done. They're mostly about me talking to someone and walking into a door/wall/dustbin/table/chair/person. I didn't learn form it, I'm still talking and walking at the same time and crashing into things, but it's funny to look back on all the times I ran into things.

7)Which subjects at school/college do you enjoy/hate most? Why?
I love English, for all the obvious reasons. Speaking English makes me feel at home, and by 'home', I mean Novato, California, my adopted hometown.
I absolutely hate math, but I couldn't quit those classes, otherwise I would have done it, because I fail at every part of it.

Now I have to think of four extra questions. Don't expect them to be serious, because I'm terrible at making up questions.

1)Who's your favorite superhero? (Told you this wasn't going to be a serious question)
2) If travel wouldn't cost time and money, what would be the first country you visit and why?
3) Do you have a childhood dream that you're holding onto, even though people tell you to forget it?
4) What's the worst song you've ever heard?

I can't tag a lot of people, since I've found most of the blogs through Teenage Blogger Central.
I'm tagging Nitzan from Drugs Called Books and Roos from More Than Only Cupcakes (her blog is in Dutch, but I'm tagging her anyway).

  1. Thanks for participating in this!
    I laughed at your answer to #2, as I also live in a "farming community" even though my neighbors claim it is the peak of rural sophistication..

    1. You're welcome.
      I can't help but picturing your village as a farming community.
      My town is actually the biggest in the area with the most stores, two high schools and over 14000 inhabitants, but still people think it's a farming community.


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good! Wait, no, I mean: I solemnly swear that I will answer each and every comment ;)
