Last Thursday I submitted my UK Visa application! I brought a binder full of documents to support my claim that I have British ancestry and that I would be a good addition to Britain. The question is, will the powers that be think so too?
I have been obsessively checking my email every hour since. I know it could take up to 3 weeks to hear back from them. I’m just too freakin’ excited and nervous to even wait a week! Eeeeeeeap!
I’ll let you know as soon as I hear. *fingers-crossed*
In the meantime, I was nominated by the lovely Samantha from Wandering Grad for the Liebster Award.
“Liebster is a word with German origins meaning dearest, sweetest, kindest, and beloved. The Liebster Award exists only on the internet, and is an award given to bloggers by bloggers. The award is given to bloggers with less than 200 followers. The purpose of the Liebster Award is to recognize and discover upcoming talent in the blogosphere through a Pay it Forward initiative.”
Isn’t that nice! I love a good Pay It Forward.
There are some rules involved with this award:
- You must link back to the person who nominated you (but cannot nominate them)
- You must answer the 10 questions given to the nominee before you.
- You must select 10 blogs with under 200 followers to answer your 10 questions.
Let’s do this! Here are the questions from Samantha:
1. Favorite quote?
I have so many favourite quotes it seems impossible to choose one. I feel these two are the most relevant to me right now:
“Once the travel bug bites there is no known antidote, and I know that I shall be happily infected for the rest of my life” – Michael Palin
“If we wait until we’re ready, we’ll wait for the rest of our lives.” – Lemony Snicket
2. What film or book genre do you think your life is? What do you want it to be?
It would have to be a non-fiction biography/documentary, wouldn’t it? I wish it was a fairy tale adventure though, with magic and talking animals, now that would be fun!
3. What’s at the top of your bucketlist?
Moving to London!
4. If you were made ruler of a country, would you accept the position? Why or why not?
Definitely not. There are many others more qualified who would do a much better job.
5. If you had to choose a singular location to live for the rest of your life, where would you choose?
I would live in my hometown near my family and friends, but that wouldn’t stop me from travelling to all the places I couldn’t live!
6. What current celebrity or popular figure would you be incredibly torn up over if they were to die right now?
Well this is a depressing question. I don’t think I would be torn up about anyone dying that I don’t personally know.
7. What is your favorite mode of transportation? (bus, train, plane, boat, bike, rollerblades, etc…)
Walking! But only if the weather is favourable. Otherwise, I love a good road trip!
8. Do you think your favorite beverage (tea, coffee, wine, whatever) says a lot about you as a person?
Hahaha…nope! The only time your favourite beverage would say anything about you as a person is if your favourite beverage is something crazy like mouthwash, laundry detergent, gasoline, etc. Yikes!
9. Who is your role model (real or fictional)?
I don’t have a role model. There are many characteristics I admire in others, but there isn’t a singular person that I would call my role model.
10. What song would you sing for a reality television show audition, and why?
Definitely “Shake it off” so I can show off my awesome dance moves, because I am a horrible singer!
And now my questions for ky nominees:
- Coffee or tea?
- Next place you are (or hope to) travel to?
- What is your favourite photo from your travels?
- What’s the next song on your playlist?
- Your spirit animal is a…?
- If you could take anyone on a road trip who would you bring? Where would you go?
- What movie/tv show would you like to be a character in?
- The funniest thing you’ve seen on the internet this month?
- You can only bring 10 items with you on a surprise vacation to your dream destination – what do you bring? And where are you going?!
- Riddle time: What travels around the world but stays in one spot?
