The Fabulous Blog Ribbon Award

I was awarded the Fabulous Blog Ribbon Award by Alyssa. She's a pretty cool kid who loves figure skating, reading and baking things.

In order to accept this award you have to:

1. Post the rules on your blog.
2. Name five of your most fabulous moments either in real life or in the blogosphere.
3. Name five things you love.
4. Name five things you hate.
5. Pass the ribbon on to five other bloggers.


Five most fabulous moments:
1. Finishing my first draft of Evergreen in October 2009 at just over 80,000 words.
2. Entering a state-wide Indonesian competition in 2007 and coming 2nd in my division.
3. Unit 3 drama performance with my 2011 drama class, All That Glitters is not Gold, which we wrote and performed ourselves. It was amazing.
4. Completing my read of the novel Emma by Jane Austen and realizing that I'd never have to read anything so horrible for school-purposes ever again. Everything else I'm studying in both English and Literature are easy in comparison.
5. The various moments when people have asked me to write something for them, and liked the end product.

Five things I love:
1. Writing (duh!)
2. My mates.
3. The smell of fresh air.
4. The contrast between the country and the city, especially when it only takes a couple of hours to switch between the two scenes.
5. Jellyfish. I really want a pet jellyfish.

Five things I hate:
1. Spiders.
2. The dumb-arses in society who can't handle someone having a different opinion to them and insist on shoving their own views down the throats of those who differ.
3. The idiots who don't understand that inserted headphones means DON'T TALK TO ME, I'M LISTENING TO MUSIC!
4. Justin Bieber. Did you know: apparently he is responsible for an outbreak in lazy-eye, because people started wearing their hair like his and it got in their eyes?
5. Holiday homework.

Five people I'm passing this award on to:
1. Giora
2. running4him
3. JeffO
4. Mark Koopmans
5. IT'S A TIE between Fiona and Rick because I love you both and couldn't choose between you.

You guys are the people who follow me best, and whom I try to follow in return. All have my respect and love.

  1. I'm not super-fond of spiders, myself. Do you get those big, nasty funnelweb spiders where you are? Ugh.

    Thanks for the award!

    1. We do get a few species of funnel-web in Australia, though I don't see as many in my particular area. Though my house tends to get a lot of whitetails, huntsman spiders, and wolf spiders. We get a few redbacks now and then too, but they're more passive, and kind of beautiful... I hate spiders. So much.

    2. I have a love-hate thing with spiders myself. I think they're very cool, interesting to watch, and some are quite lovely. But I don't want them on me or hanging over my head, that's for sure.

  2. Thanks, Bonnee. There is a submission of short stories open only for Australian writers. Deadline is Sep. 30. Check it out.

    Good luck!

    1. Man, you are full of resources! :) Thanks, I'll check it out.

  3. Great answers! I hate Justin Bieber too LOL! :D

  4. Cheers Bonnee,

    You're a RockStar and I appreciate the award... but PS... do you really want a pet jellyfish...

    Yikes! :)

    1. I sure do! Haha there is something so hypnotically beautiful about them... I'll probably never own one, but it's a fanciful thought of mine!


Have your say.
