12 Things About Me + Blog Awards

Last week was insane, I’ve been nominated by three fellow geek bloggers for three different awards. I am always very thankful for those people that remembers me and my blog and decides to assign us an award, but I don’t like to write posts about it because, I don’t know, I’m weird. But this time I had to write something up, also because the purpose of these awards is getting to know more your favourite bloggers, so I decided to write a ginormous post.

THE ANSWERS

12 random things about me:

  1. I still live with my parents and it took me way too much to graduate.
  2. I didn’t like reading when I was a child, but the Geronimo Stilton saga made me fall in love with books and I never stopped reading since then.
  3. I started my very very first blog in 2007, and I was 17, on Windows Live Space.
  4. I hate my surname because it’s long and difficult and nobody can spell it, I wish Greenleaf was my real surname.
  5. I’ve always been a dog person, then 3 summers ago I rescued a month-old kitten along a busy road and my life changed. Now I’m a happy crazy cat lady.
  6. I have several celebrity crushes, but Orlando Bloom is my one and only favorite guy.
  7. Sometimes I feel myself too young for responsibilities, but when I realize I’m almost 25, I suddenly feel too old for what I’m currently doing (aka studying and not having a job).
  8. My dad was born in Eritrea, Africa. But unfortunately he doesn’t have black skin, if not I wouldn’t be so pale like a ghost!
  9. My heart belongs to Scotland. I wish I was born there.
  10. During my whole life I lived with 5 rescue pets, 3 dogs and 2 cats, not at the same time, but at different stages of life and they always left us once they were old.
  11. My body doesn’t contain pigment cells (confirmed by doctors), so there is no chance I can tan. While nobody cares about my (absent) skin colour in Switzerland (because everybody’s like me there!), it’s so annoying being a super pale girl here in Italy, home of tanning, because people stares at you along the road when your legs reflect the sun like crazy.
  12. I’ve been a ballerina for 12 years and my feet are very ugly now!

Liebster Award Q&A:

  1. What is your best book recommendation and why? The Harry Potter saga, because it isn’t just a ‘children book’ as people usually thinks, but it teaches you to live, it’s an allegory of our own world.
  2. What are your top five “fandoms”? Tolkien, Harry Potter, Disney, Once Upon A Time, The Avengers (is The Avengers a fandom?).
  3. If you could be one fictional character for 24 hours, who would it be? A random Hobbit from the Shire or Hermione Granger.
  4. Do you collect anything geeky? Yep, I collect books and DVDs of my favourite movies and I have also a tiny Tolkien Collection.
  5. What is your favorite ice cream flavor? Strawberry.
  6. What is your current Netflix binge? Sorry, but we don’t have Netflix here in Italy 😦
  7. You’re on a desert island, what book or movie do you bring with you? The Lord of the Rings.
  8. If you were an animal, what would you be and why? I’d probably be a cat, because I like to stay on my own, lazy afternoon in bed and cats are such amazing creatures!
  9. If you could have dinner with any person, dead or alive, who would you choose? Despite my crush for Orlando Bloom, I’d like to have a dinner with Emma Watson and/or Evangeline Lilly, they’re my favourite actresses and they’re both amazing women. I’d love to hear their thoughts about everything.
  10. Doctor Who, Sherlock, or Supernatural? Sherlock, always.
  11. Star Wars or Star Trek? Star Wars, I never watched Star Treck, honestly.

BREAKING THE RULES

I won’t nominate other 10-20-30 blogs, because I saw that most of my favourite blogs have been already nominated, but, since the purpose of these awards is discovering new people and blogs to read, I invite you to take a look at the amazing members of my favourite blogging community: Female Geek Bloggers!
