Mystery Blogger Award

It would seem, my dear friend Niina over at Dollsdolour tagged me for the Mystery Blogger Award. I feel so happy, whenever I get tagged, just because "hey, someone actually thought of me" :P Thank you so much sweetie!


So, this award was made by Okoto Enigma. I like when people create these sorts of things. It's so much fun!

The rules for the award:
1. Put the award logo/image on your blog.
2. List the rules.
3. Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
4. Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well.
5. Tell your readers three things about yourself.
6. You have to nominate 10-20 people.
7. Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog.
8. Ask your nominees any five questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question (specify).
9. Share a link to your best post(s).

Three things about myself:
1. My Larika project was started when I was 18 years old, so by now, it's 11 years ongoing. I've come way further this time around, but it took a lot of deconstruction and reconstruction to make it work.
2. I have a small dog. Her name is Cleo and she is my baby. I drove 240kms to bring her home, and it was worth it!
3. I'm trying to learn how to read again. I mean, I can read, I have no problem actually doing the task, but I'm trying to learn to concentrate enough to read. Currently, I'm reading a YA book written by Claus Hagstrøm called "Se, Nu Stiger Solen".

Niina's questions:
1. Which doll do you regret buying?
2. What moment in your life would you love to experience again?
3. Coffee or Tea? Why?
4. What will people be nostalgic about in say 30 years, do you think?
5. The most embarrassing clothes you have worn?

1. Which doll do you regret buying?
My initial thought was the MNF Ante I bought because I lost a lot of money selling her, only for the buyer to turned around and sell her for the original amount right after. That sucked, but it is, what it is.
2. What moment in your life would you love to experience again?
Possibly something from my time at the boarding school. My last year there, was the best year of my life. 
3. Coffee or Tea? Why?
Coffee. Tea doesn't give me enough energy. But I do love tea, even if I rarely drink it.
4. What will people be nostalgic about in say 30 years, do you think?
Perhaps smartphones? Or Justin Bieber? Or Fidget Spinners? haha
5. The most embarrassing clothes you have worn?
Hmm, I have a weird relationship with my wardrobe, so I'm not really sure.

I'm afraid most people I know have been tagged, so I won't come up with any questions, but thanks for reading :)

  1. Yay, you did this! Great! And of course I think about you! <3
    Oh, wow, that is some years put into the Larika project! Hope that it still goes well with the writing!
    I have never really felt that I could write stories or so, but maybe I should step out of my comfort zone and just try and see what happens.
    When it comes to reading, I am trying to learn how to do it too. Before I could read a book a day or at least 3-4 books a week. Now I struggle with one book for ages. I have even tried to read shorter books. Audio books are great, but even there my focus and concentration can wander off.
    I really can not understand why one buys a doll and sells it right after, just to make a profit. It is one thing to sell if one does not feel for the doll or something else comes up in life. I can imagine that it sucked.
    Haha, Justin Bieber - that would be something to be nostalgic about. I never figured out those fidget spinners. My oldest bought one, and it never spinned for me. :D
    I remember one time, when I really had something embarrassing clothes. I was in the 9th grade and we had a day out at school. I have never been happy about those days, but gave it a go. We had a walk a long path in the woods and check different points, almost as orienteering but without the running. In the end we had to pass a smaller stream and not knowing there was a bridge (just a look at the map, would have helped us), we jumped over it. My friend jumped over like a graceful ballerina and I like a hippo. Fell in the stream, get all wet and dirty. Luckily my friend said she had some extra clothes. Sadly nothing matched in color, so I looked like a happy mishmash. The leggings had a strange bright orange color, just to mention it. The bus ride and walk home was pretty embarrassing. :D Well, we got a good laugh though.
    And Cleo is a cutie! <3

    1. Yeah, the Larika project has been with me for, what seems like, an eternity :) I have tried doing non-Larika characters so many times, but I always end up with the same old Larika characters again and again! It would seem like, it's meant to be :D
      I say, go for it! Writing is so wonderful. Whatever you create in your mind, you can put to live. I love it. :D
      I used to be a huge bookworm as well, but it has been tough for years. I'm starting to get better at reading now, but I still have days or even weeks where I don't read. Audiobooks, sadly, don't work for me. I forget to listen and then I end up feeling lost in the plot xD
      Some people are in it for the money, but whatever, she paid for the doll, so I'm not angry, just sad, considering I only sold her out of need.
      Haha, that sounds like quite a story XD Orange leggings sounds so bad haha.
      Thanks <3

  2. Hello :)
    I am also still here *wave
    I am happy you did this, it is always fun for me to read more personal stuff. 11 years of Larika!! That is impressive and so cool!! I hope at one point you will stay happy with the story and you current inspiration.
    Also I can relate with reading... I have no energy or motivation to actually read, so I listen to audiobooks right now. It is not the same, but also a very nice way to hear stories rather than to live with non!
    Big hug and bye bye

    1. Hi dearie!
      Good to see you. I struggle a lot keeping up with the blogs, but I have not completely given up yet. I do enjoy the blogging community a lot.
      Thank you! I hope I can finish the Larika story within the next year or so. At first I had decided it should be done in December at the latest, but given the fact that I'm struggling a lot, I haven't been able to keep up my wordcount. T_T
      Oh, how I wish audiobooks worked for me, but I simply forget keep listening, until the point, where I have no idea what is happening in the story. It sucks :/ I hope we will both find the energy to read again!
