So, what the hell is the Liebster Award?
The Liebster* Award is an online blogging award for bloggers by bloggers that works like a chain letter. One person gets nominated for the award and is allowed to nominate 5 to 11 other bloggers who she/he things is worthy. When accepted, the nominated blogger answers 11 personal questions and nominates 5-11 other bloggers. That’s all.
- Liebster is the ambiguous German word that can be used to describe the words dearest, sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing… and so on.
I decided to accept the nomination cuz it feels good to know that my blog is appreciated by other bloggers. That said, here are the answers to the questions from ProudWeirdo:
What’s the most extreme thing you’ve ever done?
Disconnecting myself from the social expectations and control.A few years ago I decided that I don’t give a fucking F about what people expected me to do, say, wear and be. I decided that I will not make any excuses for being my authentic self. It’s very hard to do, it basically means that you don’t belong in any box, group or society. Which can be very lonely at first but when you get the hang of it you will find a whole new world in which people respect you for you. Not who you with, what you wear, your education or income, but your unique self, your imperfections are viewed as beautiful. And the biggest reward is that you feel free, free from all the social anxieties and judgements.
It’s the most extreme thing I’ve done cuz I lost friends and felt lonely for a long time.
Is the glass half full or half empty?
Technical speaking, the glass can never be half empty, its either filled or empty. SO the glass is always half full when its filled, you can make yourself believe its half empty but you will be lying to yourself and science. So yeah, half full.
What character in which movie will you like to be?
CAPTIAN JACK SPARROW!!!! DUH, I mean duuuuuuuh!. Jack Sparrow was my second movie crush (after Goku) I love me some Cray Cray personality that uses its weaknesses to achieve whatever he/she wants.
What the most played song on your IPod?
I don’t IPod, I Spotify on my phone and laptop. I don’t have a most played song either, it all depends on my mood. Today the most played song was the song Groovy Kind Of Love.
What is the first thing you bought with your own money?
High Heels!! I wanted to see if its was possible to climb in trees with heels. I wanted to be the first high heel climber. It’s possible BTW, but climbing down its the problem.
What is the best thing you ever purchase?
Definitely books!! The first book I bought myself was The Alchemist and it changed my life. Knowledge is power and power is what I seek. The best investment (if its a good book of course) in my life.
What your biggest blunder ever?
When I was six years old I moved from Ghana to the Netherlands. I thought that the Netherlands was a state in America and that I was in America. It was very awkward.
What is the last movie or to show that made you cry?
Divines. A French movie about two young girls struggling with in the ghettos of Paris. To make money they decide to become drugs dealers. It’s a very very sad but accurate portrait of life in the bad part of town and the people who try to make it work. I just lost it at the end. So sad.
If you could live anywhere in the world where would you live?
Underwater. I would build a glass house in the underwater and enjoy the beauty of fish and water. Why? I don’t know yet.
Do you believe in Karma?
Hmm, no. I belief that if you do something nice, don’t expect anything back. Do it cuz you want to do it, expect nothing from anyone or anything. However, back in my mind iI do know that everything you do has a consequence, what the consequence could be depends on what you did and how the other side perceives your action. Example: Giving clothes to charity, what you perceive to be a good thing, but the receiving end could see it as a negative thing. Local clothing stores or tailors loses their income. Which can resulted in
Do you follow your mind or your heart?
Heart, the mind plays tricks with you. The mind is easily manipulated, but your feelings, what you feel in your heart comes from your unconsciousness. There is a reason why you feel the way you feel, better investigate what your unconsciousness trying to tell you than rely on your brain who’s easily manipulated, loves easy and simple solutions.
