Since my last Liebster Award (you can read it here), I’ve been nominated for it again few times over these months. Now you know how I feel about tags and all these things, so I won’t waste your time talking about that. I decided to make Q&A post from all those awards and tags I’ve been nominated for and it turned out into quite a lengthy post (1800+ words). I know how people struggle with reading long posts, so I decided to cut it into two parts. Today I’m going to answer Celeste’s from With Love, Celeste and half of Honey’s from Beehive questions.
Also, I’m not going to nominate other people like the last time. So feel free to answer at least one of these questions yourself in the comments below. I’d love to know more about you too. Now let’s get to these questions!
1. What is the one thing you would tell to the first person that comes to your mind?
“You make me very confused”. Not going to say more, haha.
2. What is your favourite author?
I don’t have one actually. But if I had to chose, then J. K. Rowling all the way! She made my childhood.
3. What are three things in nature you find beautiful?
Mountains are the most beautiful sign in nature for me. One of the reasons why I enjoy hiking so much. Also, forests. Especially in autumn, those leaves and chilly weather make it looks so magical. The third sign has to be waterfalls. Oh, how much time has passed since I saw a proper waterfall! I need to plan a trip to one soon.
4. What is the last thing you ate?
Vanilla curd cheese dessert. I”m not even going to try and explain what it is because you need to experience it to know how heavenly it tastes. Best thing ever invented.
5. What is the meaning of your name?
It’s Latin name which means joyful, glad. Also, it means summer in Russian. I think it describes me pretty well since I love summer and I’m happy, positive most of the time.
6. What is your favourite holiday?
Christmas all the way! I love that I get to spend time with my whole family, also it’s such a beautiful time. What not to love about Christmas? Well, except for the fact that you end up broke.
7. Did you have a favourite treat or sweet as a child? What was it?
I was a weird child, I don’t think I had one. But my grandmother said that I loved raisins and called them booboos. That explains why I dislike them a lot now, I must have eaten too many in my childhood.
8. What fictional character are you most like?
I had to take a personality quiz for this and it says – Hermione Granger. I’m not mad about that! I am not sure if I’m like Hermione. I’m stubborn and kind of smart sometimes, so maybe? What do you think I’m most like?
9. Do you like to sing in the shower?
In fact, no. I’m not much of a singer and I actually never have sung in a shower. I’m just not one of those people. On the other hand, singing while cleaning the house or writing a post I do like. But I’m not sure if the cat enjoys the concert…
10. What was your last dream about?
I have trouble remembering dreams. I usually don’t remember what I dream and it’s kind of upsetting since I’m sure that I have very entertaining dreams. The last dream I can recall was something about me going to a concert. I don’t know whose but I think it was a band. That’s literally all I remember.
11. What are three things that make you happy?
Food, cats and coffee. Haha, on a more serious note, making others laugh makes me very happy. Also, being productive is something that makes me quite happy. I’m a hard-working person and productivity is one of those elements of my happiness. I know, it’s unusual. Lastly, meeting up with friends who I haven’t seen in a while. It makes me all fuzzy inside and smiley.
Are you more an indoor person or an outdoor person?
Outdoor for sure. I love going out, travelling and doing something outside. I do have my moments when all I want to do is curl in a ball on my bed and watch movies or read a book all day but I can’t imagine myself spending days doing that. I start feeling guilty and unproductive, that kills me.
What’s your favourite game and why (I was going for computer/Internet games)?
I don’t play any computer or Internet games. Sometimes Mario Kart with my brother or Just Dance with friends if that counts. But I used to love Sims and GTA.
How do you see your future (husband, pets, kids, village or big city, job, money,…)?
I honestly don’t have an answer to this. I don’t really think too much about my future. I like to focus on now rather than dream about what would happen. I guess I’d like to have a family, nice apartment or a house and maybe kids. But the most important thing right now for me is to build a career and reach something. I want my future to be intertwined with inspiring people or motivating.
If you could meet any person in the world, who would it be, why, and what would be the one question to ask them?
I would love to meet Lilly Singh because she’s such a great inspiration to me. I love the fact that her hustle is real, she works day and night to get to where she is now and that’s admirable. Also, her humour and videos are few of the things that helped me when I was lost and unsure of myself. She inspired me to work hard and seek my goals. Less dreaming, more doing. I would have too many questions for her but the one I would really want her to answer is how she does all of this. How does she manage to keep hustling even if she feels super unmotivated?
If I’d ask you to say something positive to the world in general, what would it be?
Success comes from kindness. Be kind to each other and you will be rewarded.
What would you say to the world?
Don’t forget to answer at least one question!
