The Real Neat Blog Award

The Real Neat Blog Award

I know I did a post like this very recently.  But, I’m excited to announce that I’ve been nominated for another blogging award!  This is honestly such an amazing feeling.  I didn’t really think my blog was going to go anywhere and this is my second award nomination within a week.  So, a massive thank you to the amazing Ellie Pilcher from EllesBelles Bookshelf for the nomination!

Although this is coming to you on a Saturday I actually wrote this last Sunday straight after her nominating me.  I read the questions she asked and got very excited to answer them right away!

The Rules

  1. Thank and link the blogger who nominated you
  2. Answer the 7 questions they asked you
  3. Nominate 7 bloggers for this award and let them know
  4. Ask 7 questions for your nominees

The Questions

1) What is your favourite Disney movie?

If we’re including Pixar my favourite would have to Monsters Inc.  I loved Monsters Inc so much as a child, and after re-watching it (semi) recently I can honestly say that I still do.  That movie is an emotional roller-coaster!  My favourite character has always been Sully.  I have a massive mug with his face on and I used to have a pair of Sully ears which I was obsessed with.  I wore them all over the place.

2) What is your favourite social media site?

I used to hate it, but since I’ve started using it to help with blogging I’d have to say Twitter.  The blogging community on Twitter are the nicest people.  I’ve met some amazing friends on there who I can go to with advice and questions.  Twitter chats have become a regular part of my week and I’m really enjoying it!  (Follow me on Twitter if you don’t already at @thoughtsfromjasmine)

3) Aside from blogging, what other hobbies do you have?

I think I mentioned this in my 20 before 20 post, but I really like songwriting, and I’ve been getting into it a lot more recently.  My main three hobbies all revolve around writing.  These include song-writing, book writing and blog writing.  So yeah, I spend a lot of time writing.

4) Describe your perfect day.

The best days I have involve hanging out with my friends and family, sitting around and talking.  Whether that’s on a sofa, round a dinner table playing cards, or crammed in someones bedroom.  With the right people you never run out of things to say.

5) What Harry Potter house are you?

Just to clarify, I only know this because I have a few friends who are massive Harry Potter fangirls.  I am majority Hufflepuff, the most underrated house in Harry Potter.  According to an online quiz that means that I’m generous and kind-hearted.  And also, a member of the group that no one at Hogwarts seems to care about.  That seems pretty fitting to be honest.

6) Theatre, film or television programme?

From favourite to least favourite I’d probably go: theatre, television programme, film.  I have an actual obsession with musical theatre.  if I had more money (and more time) I would see as many musicals as I possibly could.  My favourite musicals would have to be Memphis, Hairspray and Wicked.  Although, unpopular opinion, I actually thought that Shrek The Musical had a nice charm about it.

6) What does blogging mean to you?

For me, blogging is a way of taking the tangled thoughts from my mind and untangling them on my computer screen.  I tend to go through periods of extreme anxiety and they’ve calmed down so much since starting.  Being able to eloquently put my thoughts and feelings out here has provided me with new confidence as well as a clearer mind.  Things that used to make me upset don’t have as great an effect.  I’ve been loving the three weeks since I started this blog, and I can’t thank every one of you that’s read or subscribed to it enough.

Hope you enjoyed reading my answers, I actually really enjoyed answering these!  Below are my nominees and the questions they have to answer.

Lots of love,

Jas xx
