So, this post is late as hell and so is the quadruple first impressions that will follow, but I guess I already explained my circumstances so please don’t rage at me…
So before I begin, I think I have to explain what this post is even about. When I was just scrolling through the blogging feed on Thursday, I came across a certain post by a certain someone who suddenly decided to drop a bombshell on me and give me this award:
Thank the person who nominated you and link their blogThank your readers
- Add the One Lovely Blog Award to your post
- Share 7
[boring]things about yourself
- Pass this on to as many people as you like (max 15)
- Include this set of rules
- Inform your nominees
Instead of just thanking @Shokamoka alone for nominating me, I decided to thank all of you readers yet again. Without you people my blog would have just been a dumping ground of thoughts that no one cares about but with you, it all becomes meaningful. It’s fun thinking of interesting things to write and to come up with new and fun stuff, and that’s also the main drive for me to maintain this blog and make it as nice to read as possible.
Therefore, I believe more thank yous are in order. Well, I probably said it too many times by now but I would still like to say: Thank you everyone.
That aside, I do have my doubts and mixed feelings about getting nominated for this award.
- My blog is relatively new, with me only making it during April(with relatively bad posts), meaning only 6 months has passed since the creation of this blog. Within that period of time, I would say the amount of effort I put in only increased from June onwards, with April and May being me putting out posts just for my friends to read, and September onwards being my busy periods so posts have slowed down. This might be too early for me to receive an award like this.
- I don’t have confidence. I can’t say for sure that “Yes, my blog deserves this award” because I know I can do things even better, and with how busy I am nowadays, I am unable to write the more interesting things, and we are back to semi-standard posts. Therefore, I doubt my eligibility.
- Of course I am still happy to receive this award. In fact, I was screaming internally when I saw my blog being mentioned in Shoka’s post. My inner self was already holding celebrations.
That being the case, let’s drop the overly pessimistic tone. It’s time to accept the award properly and follow the rules.
The 7 deadly facts
No. 1: I play games too…and edit photos too…and make videos too…and read books too…and read manga too…and read light/web novels too…and…
Yup. I have many interests. Too many for my own good of course, but I genuinely enjoy everything I’ve listed and more. My ultimate goal however, is to be a game developer, and so far everything, including this blog, is just side hobbies. However, I probably won’t ever let go of anything since I like them equally as much, and the entertainment I get from them is always great.
No. 2: Mushrooms are my worst enemy
Annnnd that’s out there now. For all the goodness it has, along with the aroma it gives off, and apparently its amazing taste, I absolutely despise mushrooms. It smells like crap to me, it tastes like crap to me, and I will vomit my food out if I ever taste mushrooms. Not to mention that my sense of smell is actually really good when it comes to food, having someone eat/cook mushrooms next to me just makes me want to vomit. I can never understand the world of the normal human being who can put mushrooms into their mouth and call it tasty.
No. 3: I have a loli voice
Yeeeap. According to most people who heard my voice, apparently I have a loli voice. Although I think its pretty exaggerated, I do know why they would think so. Most people would have their voice change when they go through puberty(lesser for the girls), but the emphasis is on the word most. Unfortunately(fortunately?) for me, my voice did not go through such a change. It barely changed a little bit and even now I can go really high-pitched if I wanted to. Well, Not that I want to but I do know that even my normal speaking voice is pretty high pitched so… there’s that. Make what you will out of this information I guess. And no, I’m bad at singing so no song requests. I think.
No. 4: I procrastinate… a lot
This isn’t exactly a secret, but because of how I am, because of how much I value entertaining things over things that are less entertaining, I end up putting off certain things such as studying or doing my work for “later”. That “later” will continue until it turns into “tomorrow”, eventually into “next week”, until it becomes “Oh no I should do it right now”. This is an extremely bad habit and I know it, but I can’t help it. Procrastination is in my nature. Well, I am taking steps to resolve this though so hopefully I don’t experience the despair of trying to complete everything at the same time again.
No. 5: I can’t exactly rage…or get angry in particular
This might be quite surprising… or maybe not. For me, I am the type to hide my negative emotions inside while trying my best to show people a more sunny and positive outlook. I may be laughing on the outside but crying on the inside. At the same time, it applies for all negative emotions. And the one that is the most prominent is anger. I don’t remember the last time I actually got angry over something, but I do think of myself as kind of a soft person. I can’t exactly rage or get angry, and at most I only get annoyed or irritated at something. You will probably need to push me way over the edge for me to show any anger at all, let alone see my unleash my fury(which is probably comparable to a cat screeching on all fours tbh). Therefore, anger is an emotion that is the most foreign to me, and I guess having a good temper is a good thing. Perhaps. Either that or I’m just a pushover trying to justify not doing anything.
No. 6: I’m shy towards people I don’t know
Well… I’m shy towards people I don’t know. It’s a fact, and I can’t change myself. Whenever I have to talk to someone I won’t talk to normally, I get all awkward and rigid. However, if its someone I know, it’s another case entirely. My “talkative” switch gets turned on and I just straight up bombard them with conversations, even if it’s just random crap. It might get obnoxious but we’ll be so comfortable with each other by then it wouldn’t really matter :P. Well, it is fun talking with other people, I just lack the courage to do what some people will do: go up to a complete random stranger and try to make friends.
No. 7: I’m a male.
Yup, I’m a male. Not a Felix, not a Hideyoshi, a true man(in case you haven’t figured it out yet). Well, that’s all the personal information you will get out of me for now. I don’t want divulge my personal information anytime soon, and I will probably keep up my internet anonymity, so enjoy this very helpful information for now.
Annnd that’s about it. The 7 hopefully interesting facts about me.
For now, I’ll proceed on to nominate some people who I think definitely deserve this award more than me:
Sam Brewer from The Tiny World of an Anime Amateur. The very first person who followed me, and at the same time, a person with a very nice blog.
Karandi from 100WordAnime. She posts some very interesting opinions and views, all in under 100 words, as the name suggests.
Because of how new I am, there’s not many people who I know or know me, so that’s all the people I can nominate for now.
And that was it for this post. It was fun thinking of things I can reveal, and I feel very happy having been nominated. I will continue to try to bring more entertaining content to you people as always, and hopefully you enjoyed this post as well.
