Award Ceremony – Feb. 2018

*NOMINATION NO. 3 and 4*

(See page 1 for thanks and intro.)

FROM: R. (nonalcoholicstudent), who blogs about his college adventures, his frustrations and his book writing. No matter what, there always is a dose of humor in his posts. Check it out and be sure to tell him I sent you.

FROM: Saumya, who shares snippets of her life and the world around her in various poems. For all poetry buffs – check it out and be sure to tell her I sent you.


  • Acknowledge the person who nominated you for the award.
  • Answer the questions.
  • Nominate other bloggers for the tag.

Since I am not sure whether it is intended to keep circulating the same questions or not, I choose to re-use the same ones. The people who nominated me used these as well. 


Q: Have you ever been in love?


Q: What is your favorite drink?


Q: What is your favorite song?

I have none.

Q: What is your zodiac sign?


Q: What is your favorite show?

I have none, but I used to enjoy “Lie to me”.

Q: What is your favorite band?

I am really bad at the favorites questions…
I have none.

Q: Something you really miss.

My childhood. The lack of obligations, the freedom to run free, the ability to dream without thinking of ifs and buts…

Q: Where do you go when you are sad?

Depends where I am. Most likely my bed. But if I am somewhere where the scenery is great and nature is all around me, I go to the beach, go to the forest, go sit on a hill…

Q: Have you ever been in a physical fight?


Q: What is your favorite color?

Black? But also blue and green and red and the associated hues of these.

Q: Loud music or soft?

When I need to calm down, or just want to de-clutter my mind – soft. When I feel on top of the world, or when I am angry – loud.

Q: Favorite actor.

Q: Do you have any fears? What are they?

I am not really a scurdy cat. If I find something that makes my heart flutter quicker, I usually push myself to overcome it. Currently, I think it is the non-material things that I might fear.

Q: Meaning behind your blog name.

One day at a time… Because I feel like I am loosing my mind too often, and just dealing with one day at a time is helpful. Also, because we worry about unnecessary things in the future. They might not even happen! So take a break, focus on what is TODAY. One day at a time…

Q: Last time you said you loved someone.

This morning.

Q: Last book you read.

“Run Rabbit Run” by Barbara Rodgers and Max Rodgers. It was a book I received from a giveaway. It is an autobiography of a 60-something woman who reflects on her life, her struggles with mental illness, and how her now husband helped her recover. This is not usually a type of a book I read, but once I started, I could not put it down.

Q: The book you are currently reading.

I have not started it yet, but the one I will pick up next is “List of 10” by C.L. Swinney. It is a true story of a serial killer.

Q: Last sport you played.

What is considered a sport? If team sports are concerned – soccer.

Q: Last song you sang.

No. Friggin’. Clue. I am not sure that I do…

Q: Favorite food.

It varies. I like a lot of different dishes. Cannot pick just one. But I can tell you that I had mashed potatoes and fish for dinner.

Q: Place you want to visit.


Q: Favorite flavor of sweet.

It has got to be chocolate. Right?

Q: What instruments do you play?

*scratches head* Define “play”. I used to play the flute a little bit.

Q: Favorite piece of jewelry. 

I do not leave a house without my watch.

  1. Congratulations on the host of Awards! Very well deserved indeed! & Thank You for the recognition on your post. Happy to be on the list. I liked the 2nd fact about yourself where you discovered you could have consolidated all of those into 1 post but kept going anyway.:)

    I commend you on the level of details you maintained throughout the post and your commitment on getting back to every one! 🙂

  2. Congratulations on your many awards! I love that you put time into answering all of them and didn’t take any easy outs.

    Also, reading this makes me feel like a lazy 💩 for my post drafts. 😂
    Thanks for inspiring me to pick up the pace!

    Also, I slept on a plane once and waking up to a stewardess sitting up my chair before landing in a place I’d never been was one of the most disorienting events of my life. I won’t be doing that again.

  3. I have been nominated a couple of times, but never for the “7 facts about me”.
    The one I was aiming for. And now you did! Thanks!

    I never participated in awards exactly for the reason that people will a comment with “congratulations” and the leave. They probably didn’t even read the thing.

    Anyhow, I did read yours and I see quite some similarities!
    My favorite fact is: “I prefer having no Internet to having slow Internet”.

  8. Took me a while to find no. 20. That was quite a lengthy award ceremony. But congratulations to you on all those awards!
    And yeah, I wrote the books, tv shows and movies in that order because that’s my ranking too 🙂 Good to know we have something else in common.
    Congrats once again!

    1. I’m doing alright, thank you for asking.
      I trust you’ve been alright as well?
      So your nomination is on page 7 of this post. Long story short – you create a new post, and in it you mention whom you got the nomination from, put in the award’s logo (page 1 of this post of mine), answer the question(s) you were asked, and then nominate your own set of bloggers, create questions for them. And you’re done!
