I got nominated for yet another award!
Warning: You’ll have to navigate through a lot of GIFs this time because my words are being funnelled into my Camp NaNo project and because I enjoy them.
Sara @ Sara Letourneau’s Official Website and Blog nominated me and I couldn’t be more grateful! A little about Sara that I borrowed from another blog she contributes to (A Bibliophile’s Reverie) –
In addition to being a tea enthusiast, Sara Letourneau is an avid reader and a writer who… well, enjoys writing! Currently, she’s working on a novel, and she writes book reviews and articles on the craft of writing. She’s also a published poet with works available in various print and online publications.
I’d also like to mention that she’s a huge Middle-Earth fan and her comments on my posts are always thoughtful, nice and supportive. I don’t know how she finds the time to do all of that as well as work on The Keeper’s Curse (more on that here) – she’s such an inspiration! The award means all the more to me because I got nominated by her. 🙂
Here are the rules of the award –

- Nominate 15 others bloggers and notify them of their nomination.
Moving on to the third item –
1. I love answering questions
I may not be an inusfferable know-it-all, but I do take pride in being aware of a lot of different things and being able to have a conversation with just about anyone. I’m also part of the quiz club in college. I’m not as bad as Hermione in my classes because I don’t do any reading in advance for them, but I can usually quote from books (or movies or TV shows) without much effort.
2. I started writing at the age of 10
Just another fun fact that my family and the people who read my answers on Quora know.
3. I’m a vegetarian
My meat-ending friends feel bad for me and always tell me I’m missing out on a whole range of tasty dishes, but I’m totally okay with that. I’m a vegetarian by birth and choice. We don’t even eat egg at home. I turned to baking because eggless cakes are hard to find on top of being expensive, and guess what? They’re just as tasty.
4. I often forget to drink water when I’m engrossed in something
5. I love looking at the night sky
It’s very pragmatic too, considering how hot Bangalore has become off-late. More seriously, I love astronomy and I wanted to be an astronaut when I was a kid. I’m planning to open a spce-related Tumblr soon to share this passion with the world but I don’t know how I’ll make time for it.
6. My favourite season is monsoon
Living in a tropical country is hard, but having an entire season where it rains is one of the perks. I always feel like writing more during that time. You can read about my thoughts on it in this post – A Lament for Rain.
7. I want to visit New Zealand at least once
I think that this post should be enough to tell you why that would be my ideal vacation.
I had a lot of fun with this award, but I’ve only nominated 7 blogs. Without further ado, the nominees are –
