The Five Senses Tag!

Whenever I do an award, my world basically falls down in shock (or at least I do).

My amazing friend Dani created this awesome tag which is really original! Because I love it, I decided to do it. Thank you so much for nominating me, Dani; you’re amazing!

The Rules:

-Thank the person who nominated you
-For each of the five senses (or as many as you do) describe five of your favourite things having to do with that sense. AKA your five favourite smells, sounds etc.
-Nominate five other people to do this tag

Sights

(I know, it might seem weird to do this, because I have very little sight)
-The colour blue, uninterrupted by any other colour so that I can see it
-An individual streetlight, or a row of them
-Snow, especially when it’s light outside and the pure white of it is visible
-Any shape, like a perfect circle or square or even a pentagon (though it takes me a long time to work out if it is a pentagon so it has to be very large)
-Something shiny, either silver or gold, that sparkles

Sounds

-A violin, either on its own or played accompanied by a piano
-The sound of rain on the roof or falling on the ground
-Wind in the trees, where it makes the leaves rustle
-The sound of a parade or carnival, with people cheering, drums playing and just the sound of a party
-Genuine, unforced laughter, the type where it just bursts out of you

Smells

-Freshly mown grass, especially mixed with rain
-Baking bread, either whilst in the oven or just after it comes out
-The smell of a forest, with leaves crushed underfoot and the smell of sap and trees in the air
-The smell of something recently painted
-Smoke from a campfire, but only the barest hint of it – not when it becomes invasive

Tastes

-Chocolate cake, either warm or not
-A crisp apple, especially when it’s been picked from a garden or orchard
-Cool water on a boiling day
-Cookies that have just come out from the oven (obviously when they,re not scalding hot)
-The taste of mint

Things to feel

-The shape of a leaf – any leaf – and how precise it is
-Water running over my hands, from a waterfall or the rain
-The feeling of holding someone’s hand (romantically or platonically) and the security it brings
-Soft velvet or wool
-An intricately carved design, piece of jewellery or anything that’s engraved so that I can feel it

People I’d like to tag:

Olive
Anja
Jodie and Erin
Liam
Evie

If you haven’t checked these people out, you really should because they’re amazing! I hope you enjoy doing this tag, and once again: thanks to Dani for creating it, you utter genius.

The Little Engine Tag

RIGHT, this tag is really overdue and I feel horribly guilty for not doing it sooner!

This is a brilliant tag, made by the one and only The Little Engine That Couldn’t who’s post can be found above.

The Rules:
1. Each answer you give to a question has to be more than two sentences long. Or at the very least, you have to make those two sentences meaningful.

2. There will be two bonus questions at the end, that the blogger gets to change to whatever they want to ask when they nominate someone else. The first six questions, however, are set in stone.

3. At the end you must nominate three to five other bloggers. Okay, so you don’t have to, but that would be nice if you could. (I want my blog name to spread on for all of eternity.)

4. You know how sometimes in quiet classrooms, they’ll be that one guy clicking his pen fifty times a second, and it’s annoying as hell to everyone else? Yeah, don’t be that guy. This doesn’t apply to this tag so much, but more to life in general.

YES okay this is cool ahh

The Questions:

1. What’s one of your biggest pet peeves?
I DAMN well hate when people overuse ellipses. One is just fine – you know, you say, “I’m not feeling too good…” But if you do it on every single SENTENCE, I don’t know WHY but it just annoys me. I’M SORRY!

2. What is your favourite song at the moment?
There’s this song called I Found by Amber Run, and I absolutely love it. I found it by accident as well – all of the other songs on the suggested list on youtube that that song was on I didn’t especially like, but this one? I ADORE it, because of the harmonies, piano, lyrics and everything. Ahhh I could listen to it all day. I know it sounds quite miserable, but it’s so beautiful.

3. Who is your favourite blogger?
NO don’t make me pick. I LITERALLY can’t – but all of the bloggers I’ll nominate are my favourites. That’s the worst answer to a question I’ve ever written, in my life. ARGH!

4. What’s the nicest thing you’ve seen someone do recently?
I haven’t really been paying attention, but I think it would have to be when this girl went home a few days ago – not sure why but it was pretty serious – and people were so worried about her. It made me feel like our form was really caring, despite the people in it who scare me a little. But still, they just came together and asked if she was okay. Luckily, she was back at school today.

5. What’s something you regret doing?
I honestly don’t have regrets, as weird as that sounds, because I think that you learn from everything you do. However, I DO regret being so… Oblivious, when I was younger, and even two years ago. I look back on some of the things I did, and how I acted, and I feel so ashamed and irritated with myself because I was so incredibly immature. I really had no idea what kinds of things I was capable of, which is a shame really. Oh well.

6. If you could take only three items with you to a desert island, what would they be, and why?
Oh MAN, this one’s difficult. I’d probably take an instruction book on how to survive because I’m cool like that, and it’d be useful. But seriously, I’d take a sleeping bag so I wouldn’t have to sleep on just the ground, and also… A torch, not that it’d be much use. Didn’t think THAT one through… How WOULD a blind kid such as moi survive on a desert island anyway?

The bonus questions (which you can change in your own post)
7. What’s your least favourite animal, and why don’t you especially like it?
I’d say it’d have to be wasps – I KNOW they’re insects! Just go with it (WOW I’m such a shit question-answerer). It’s mainly because they scare me so much, they buzz, and also they sting MULTIPLE times. I got stung by one on a roller coaster when I was ten, so THAT was fun.

8. What’s one of your happiest memories, which you remember when things aren’t so good?
Probably when I met Rapunzel (my girlfriend, though she wasn’t at the time) for the first time. We hugged for so long, and we were shaking insanely. I’ll remember that one for a LONG time because I’ve NEVER felt so happy that something had gone right, because I didn’t think I would get to meet her and it was just so surreal.

AAAND I nominate:
1. L
2. Wannalei
3. Pixiecake
4. James
5. Penny

There you go! I hope you enjoy doing that tag, and go on and check out Matt (the creator)’s blog because it’s amazing!

The Social Media Blog Tag!

OH MY GOD

I’M DOING AN AWARD

WHAT THE FUCK!

This tag was created by the amazing Chloe AKA Diary of a Lonely Girl, and it’s AWESOME.

Rules:
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you – THANK YOU SO MUCH! You’re amazing, and your comment made me smile so much.

2. Choose a blog or blogger per category and explain why you chose them.

3. Optional – At the end of each explanation, include a gif or a hashtag that best describes them.

4. Tag others to do this (it’s up to you how many).

The Categories:

Instagram – A Blog With A Design You Love:
I’m incredibly biased here, but it always will be Caitlin because she has astounded me with how good she is at design. I’m forever indebted with her for designing my blog, because THAT means so much to me. From what I hear, she’s also an amazing photographer ๐Ÿ™‚

Facebook – A Blog With A Friendly Blogger
My friend from Letters to Eemma. This girl is the loveliest person, I swear; she’s someone who can make me laugh and think really deeply about everything. Plus, she was so incredibly friendly to me when we first started talking, and there aren’t many people who I can say I truly click with like her.

Twitter – A Blogger Who Could Write just 140 Characters And You Would Still Love Them
L. How could it NOT be L? He’s hilarious, and he could write something in 140 characters that would have you in stitches. Well, he HAS done that, actually.

YouTube – A blog You Are Convinced You Are The Number 1 Fan Of
HA, hands down, Em. MAN, that’s arrogant of me, but I think she’s a fantastic person and I could read her blog forever. Whenever I see a new post, I’m immediately there, because she’s always inspired me no matter what.

Vine – A Blog You Haven’t Been Following For Long, But Who You Still Obsess Over
I’m not entirely sure HOW long I’ve been following her, but this one has to be Shay. She’s the type of person who’s posts are ALWAYS relatable, no matter the topic, and she makes me smile.

Snapchat – The Blogger Who’s Updates You Can’t Wait For
DEFINITELY Luna because her posts always cheer me up. She’s one of the kindest people you’ll meet, and she’s been here from the start; I’ve been obsessively stalking her posts – UM I MEAN reading her posts a lot – ever since I found her blog, god knows when that was.

Tumblr – A Blog Which Keeps You Entertained
I’M SORRY, but this is always going to be Anthony. He is fantastic, funny, and his posts are absolutely BRILLIANT. That’s why he won funniest blogger… Shh. Mark my words, he’s great.

Pinterest – A Blog Which Is Full Of Creativity And Inspiration
I’d say Reine‘s blog, for the simple fact that she inspires me every single day. She’s my blogging idol, someone I look up to, and all around an amazing person. And her blog? Her posts ALWAYS give you advice, and that’s the mark of a wonderful blog.

I’m copying Chloe here, where I nominate everyone I’ve tagged – hope you don’t mind!

So, even though they’re quite beauty orientated, I’m going to take the questions from TSB365’s post, because she nominated me first.

1. What is your current book obsession?
Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley. That book is so fab and I’m ALWAYS obsessed with it. You should seriously go read it… *hint hint*

HA, NOOOO. Never had one, never will (hopefully).

What does that mean? I guess when I wake up I immediately wash my face because otherwise I feel disgusting.

6. Why is today special?
Because it’s the last Saturday before school starts OH GOD!

7. What is something you would like to learn?

When I was 5, I wanted to be a cleaner. I’m not joking. But when I was 8, I think I wanted to be… Hmm, probably a psychiatrist.

HA! Either to not screw up, relationship/love wise, before the end of this year, or to go running every week. THAT’s not happening.

13. What can you not live without?
My friends.

14. How was your childhood?
Good, apart from that time when my parents got divorced – yeah, I didn’t realise that was a bad time THEN, but now I look back on it… Eh.

15. What do you wish you had in your hand right now?
Honestly, nothing really.

16. What would you like to get rid of?
The part of my personality that decides to think it’s funny to go “HEY! Let’s make you feel REALLY UPSET FOR NO REASON!”

And also, world poverty, extreme pain, terrorist organisations and discrimination /racism/any form of prejudice that leads to violence and pain.

17. What are you most excited for?
Seeing my friends again when school starts, but also seeing S at some point this year. EWWWW.

France, Spain, Malaysia, Singapore, Cyprus, Tenerife, Finland, America, Thailand… Probably some more that I forgot.

20. The last movie you watched?
I have no fricking idea. And I’m telling the truth on that one; I never watch movies (BLIND STEREOTYPE YES) but not because I can’t see them, I just don’t watch them… *shuffles awkwardly*
