Awesome Threesome !!!

I am so grateful to all the friends I have made here on WordPress through this blog. Time and again, I am showered with love, compliments and awards. It humbles me as a person and I have no words to describe this amazing feeling. Thank you for all the awards and nominations. I have been a bit lazy and sometimes my WP app doesn’t give me notifications of my page being linked. Nonetheless, I really feel blessed to have met you all.

So here we go, this time it is a Threesome :

Creative Blogger Award

My friend from FightAlone had nominated me for this one decades ago !! I am so so sorry for taking so much time to respond. Thank u so much for this award FightAlone 🙂

Rules: (As much as we may hate them, everything in life has rules.)

  1. Nominate 15-20 blogs and notify the nominees.
  1. Post the link of the blog that nominated you.
  1. Share five random facts about yourself.

So, in all I have to share 10 + 5 Facts about Myself, here I go :

#1 : When someone from my friends or family holds my hand while crossing the road, that simple gesture makes me feel so secure and loved.

#2 : I haven’t traveled far and wide till now. It has been limited to a very handful places. But I yearn to travel. To explore. To meet people and satisfy my wanderlust. I’d want to go on a backpacking trip to Europe, visit Paris with my soul mate, Ireland (Inspired by Leap Year movie) and NYC for starters 😀

#3 : One of the best nicknames I HAD was Chocolate. And it had cute variants like Chox, Choxxie, Chocuu. Lol. Don’t know why, even today I love this name so much. And I have named the female protagonist for my next short story as Chocolate.

#4 : I might sound a bit cheesy, but I believe in true love and a soul mate. All goals I am chasing are time bound. In the end it is all about love and only love matters. Once I happened to capture the words love formed in my kitchen sink by water and a wonderful heart naturally engraved in a tree.

#5 : I don’t own any pets currently. But I long to own one. I’d love to have a dog/puppy and a baby tortoise (I find them really cute). As I kid I wanted a pet parrot. But my mom explained to me how selfish it would be on our part to take away it’s freedom and cage it. Since then I’d want to have a pet where in I can give him/her their natural surroundings and freedom.

#6 : In my school days I was a combination of a geeky bookworm plus an extremely mischievous and notorious student. This was true even in college. I have been punished countless times and my friends used to call me an OUT-standing student as I’d be thrown out of classes quite often 😀

#7 : I hate lies, liars, slow Internet connection, downloads failure and mosquitoes biting me. (Although I wouldn’t mind a vampire like Edward Cullen biting my neck 😉 )

#8 : On books: I love to read. I have written a blog about Why I Love Books you can check here. My favourite reads are Harry Potter series (my views here), Chetan Bhagat’s 2 States (He was the author from which my journey with books began, so I respect him for that ), I too had a Love Story and Can love happen twice by Ravinder Singh, FSOG Series (Because it taught me that true love has the power to overcome all odds and change a person) and Sudha Murty’s short stories. I have a huge bucket list of “To Read” books which is expanding day by day. I truly believe that books do make us a better person and there is so much to learn from them, places to travel to from their words, wisdom to unravel, …..

I can read upto 4 am without any complaints or food to eat.

#9 : I am a big movie buff. And Romance is my favourite genre. I also love inspirational movies. Watching horror movies at night alone is the last thing I’d like to do as I can’t sleep out of fear (Felt this when I saw Final destination series and Gone Girl)

#10 : I used to wear glasses earlier. This is how geeky I used to look.

#11 : Making me happy is simple. Ice-cream  (Frostick in particular) or Pani Puri (roadside) or sizzling hot brownie with ice-cream would do the trick. I also love chocolates 😀

My Fav Kiddos :*

#12 : I love spending time with kids, listening to their poems, talks about school and friends, giving chocolates to them and taking them for a drive. That gives me immense joy.

#13 : I believe that the best gift to some one would be your time. To my closest friends and family I gift handmade cards and self made gifts. I feel that the feelings are much more important that monetary worth.

#14 : I’m a teetotaler and a vegan. But I respect everyone’s choice of food and beverages.

#15 : I am a firm believer of God. But I somehow disagree with the concept if heaven and hell. I believe whatever good and bad we do here, we are rewarded for it here itself.

Nominations :

I dont want to do nominations today. Infact I want to award all these 3 awards to every blogger who reads this post. So If you’re reading this, a biiiiiiig Hug and thank you from me, for being with me in this journey ! Much Love ❤
