Award ceremony – June 2019. Receiving and giving.


From: Rashi, who writes mostly poetry, but also shares original stories and sometimes publishes her paintings.


  1. Acknowledge the person who nominated you for the tag.
  2. Post the tag image (see page no.1).
  3. Answer the questions you were asked.
  4. Nominate other bloggers to pass this tag onto.
  5. Compose a set of questions for those you decided to nominate.


  1. What really makes you angry?
    Soooo many things grind my gears. People going slow in the fast lane. People on their phone slowing down traffic. People who are never on time. Two-faced people. Liers. Etc.
  2. If you could live anywhere in the world for a year, where would it be?
    Probably Australia. There is SO much to see in that continent-country.
  3. What has been your best moment this year?
    There have been quite a few little moments. I try to appreciate the nice moments whenever they occur. The best? Probably visiting a new town over the Memorial Day Weekend and admiring the sights.
  4. Are you a night owl or a morning person?
    NIGHT OWL 1005%.
  5. How do you deal with stress?
    What I think makes all the difference is resolving stress ASAP. Many people seem to harbor stress and it ends up forming an ever-growing snowball, which then causes an avalanche. I take stress very matter of factly. First, I consider why I feel the way I do. Then, I ask myself if I can do anything about the situation.  If there is something I can do, I do it. I take a few minutes to fume (if it is not in the middle of a highway) and then proceed with solving the problem. If there is nothing I can do, I accept that things are out of my control. If there are things I cannot influence, I just let it go and move onto another thought. I go for a nature walk and take slow, deep breaths. Music also helps. Sounds simple, and cliche but it works for me.
  6. What do you think are your three best qualities?
    To me, honesty is very important. I do not like playing games. Do not waste my time. If you lie to me, it means I cannot count on you. Reliability is another thing. There are people who will do anything to keep their promise, and then there are people who simply do not care. Curiosity is my last pick. I like it when someone shows interest in learning something new. I realize that there probably are more important qualities, but these came to my mind first.
  7. How would you describe your personality?
    It is difficult to put myself in a box. I do not say that just because I want to feel unique/ special. It is because I feel like I have so many different traits that work together to form me. Introversion or extroversion? For the longest time, the Myers-Briggs would tell me I was an extrovert and I agreed. Now? There are moments where I am introverted and extroverted at others. It depends on the setting and the people around me. Sensing or intuition? Because I like analyzing any- and every-thing, I think “sensing” is better suited. However, I seem to have quite decent intuition, too. When it comes to thinking vs. feeling, I think I am visibly on the thinking part of the scale. Most definitely. Others seem to complain about it quite a bit. Judging or perceiving? Even though I think I’m closer to judging with my need to plan and organize things, I love improvising, too. 
  8. Which of my posts is your favorite? Why?
    I liked your poem “Open” a lot because it perfectly described how we feel when we step ahead into the future without knowing what it holds. I also enjoyed the poem you crafted for your sister’s B-day.
  9. What is your favorite color?
  10. Would you prefer sciences (including math) or languages?

            1. That’s too bad. I wonder if someone people have pingbacks disabled, or maybe they are just not compatible with the types of sites some people have. I know it is recommended to tell people they’ve been nominated, etc., but I like the element of surprise. You either see it, or you don’t. But I needed to point it out to you since my personal award.

  1. Aha! Personality question! And it turns out we’re pretty much exact opposites. 😆 Granted, you seem pretty balanced, but going by which ways you lean… Well, I’m generally an INFP, occasionally with some ambiguity on the F/T, depending on my mood. Kind of funny, being a selfish, semi-cynical “mediator.” Sometimes I wonder if that’s quite right. I hope it is; it seems a nice thing to be, at least it does to me. And anyway, it’s what I get almost every time. But then again, the box doesn’t make the person, the person makes the box. Still, it’s a nice ideal to aspire to.

      1. I’m appreciated. I just often feel I don’t deserve it. There are rare times where I feel my own influence, and can nudge things in the right direction, but usually I just feel powerless and like I’m part of the problem. I don’t really live up to my theoretical personality type’s title. You, though! I was reading a description of ESTJs and nigh laughed aloud. Especially the parts about honesty. 😅 It may not be a hundred percent, but I’m pretty sure there are at least some things in there that are very much you.

          1. Something about ESTJs being highly intolerant of dishonesty and laziness, especially at work; often earning them a reputation of inflexibility, though in truth they’re usually such sticklers only because they truly believe honesty and hard work are the best way to go.

            I found it funny, because a. I have a weird sense of humor that’s tickled by truth; b. you’ve mentioned your work before, including some expectations of a standard, and, I believe, related difficulties with your co-workers?; and c. we were just talking about honesty.

Hmm? What did you say? I did not hear ya.
