Liebster blog, baby!

Sunday, 1 July 2012  at 8:28 pm

Pretty, isn't it? I wanted to make it extra big so no one could miss it, but it got kinda pixelated and schtuffs *laughs*

It seems as if some bloggers don't really think much of this award but truth be told! I'm overjoyed I that I received this award from the lovely Lily from This life is confusing, since I've never received anything for my blog I feel kinda awkward to be awarded a blog award *laughs* you know what it feels like? That initial moment when they call you up to receive an award on stage, and you never expected to receive an award, yeah, it feels something like that. It might seem like I'm making a big deal but, I was actually thinking about this award the other day. I kept thinking to myself how nice it would be to receive an award to acknowledge the effort and hard-work I painstakingly put into this blog and I got it! This is why I'm so overjoyed.

Onto the rules!

Each person must post 11 facts about themselves
Answer the questions that I (the tagger) has set for you
Create 11 questions of your own for the people you wish to tag
Choose 11 people and link them in your post
Go to their page and tell them that you have given them the award
No tag backs!

11 facts about me:

I'm a petite 157 cm (5'2'') just missed average height by 3cm, and I refuse to wear heels

In high-school my best subjects were English, Afrikaans (second language), Chemistry and Biology. I was made for Science! *laughs*

I never wear make-up and I of course refuse to. I've had bad experiences with make-up, like, breaks me out like mad and when other people apply make-up to my face and they're meant to be "qualified make-up artists" I look like a plastic doll

I have a bleeding disorder

I have a drivers license but I never drive and I was at a driving school for an entire year before I applied to do my drivers test

I'm a very determined and hard-working student when it concerns my academics. Concerning everything else I don't really care

I always do what my mother tells me to do, note I said mother *laughs* if I do what she says I can get what I want, for example, I'm  FINALLY getting my long awaited second ear piercing sometime this week

I'm a hypocrite when it comes to swearing, I hate others swearing around me, the occasional swearing is fine but not every second word. I'm always swearing, but in my head *laughs*

Wherever there's excitement and fun you'll find me there

I've become addicted to skirts and patterned tights, I hate jeans

I don't mind dissecting an animal I've become pretty de-sensitized to dissecting animals. I think if I was given a cadaver I wouldn't mind dissecting it

11 questions assigned to me:

What was your favorite childhood show?
My favorite childhood show was Blue's clues and I didn't know that Blue was a boy until a few years ago

How did you choose your blog name?
I've always been told that I was petty and I've always though of myself as a petty person, so that's how petty was derived. I've always wanted to be in a tranquil place where no one would bother me and that's how I got the air part

Do you collect anything?
I collect nail-polish, jewelry anything that's anime and nail art sequences 

Something you definitely want to do in your life time?
I definitely want to go to China, Japan, Korea and Singapore before I finish university. I also plan to study my honors or masters overseas in one of the countries I've mentioned above

What would be your ideal vacation destination?
My ideal vacation destination would be a getaway to Japan and to go on an Onsen trip

Your favorite type of music?
KPOP and JPOP, yes...ONLY those two genres 

Something you would really like to own?
My own airbrush gun, the one you use to create nail art onto your nail

What language do you want to learn?
I really want to learn Japanese, Korean, Chinese and Dutch (yes, it's more than one, eh)

Your all time favorite movie and why?
V for Vendetta, I love V's personality and his accent. I love the overall script and the way the movie is played out by the actors

Where would you like to live in the future?
In an upscale apartment in Japan

What would you change about your time in high-school if you could go back?
I don't regret anything that I've done during high-school so I wouldn't want to change anything or go back

Bonus question! Do you think your hand will become crispy if you put it in a frying pan?
Well, if you put your hand in a frying pan literally speaking it will not become crispy....since it isn't switched on. If it's on, yes, since heat will dehydrate and remove all the water in your hand it will become crispy (that's how my logic works and how I see it)

  1. Thank you love!
    I'm following you now ^^
    I'll be sure to slot those questions into my next post :)

  2. Naw, thankyou for the tag dear ^0^
    I actually come to dislike jeans too ever since the introduction of leggings
    and jeggings. They are so warm, flexible and comfy. :D

  3. It's interesting to read all these facts about others C: I quite like Jpop as well, haha. Thanks for the tag! I'll be sure to add it somewhere in my post (I always end up forgetting to respond to tags ;-;)

  4. @Winona Thank you for the follow! ^^

    @lhnguyen jeggings and leggings are by far much better than skinny jeans. I feel like when I wear skinny jeans it's so uncomfortable and I'm not use to it anymore, ahaha

    @Ms. Teacup ahaha, I have the same problem with forgetting to do tags so I don't blame you

  5. Whoo, awesome post haha. I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets overly excited over these types of things. You can't imagine how happy I was when I got my first award. It really does help other bloggers get to know each other in this world we call the internet :P


    Thanks for sharing~


  6. Btw, I reread your description on your sidebar. You're like my long lost sister haha.

    I'm a molecular biology and biotechnology major (almost biochemistry, but not quite) and we're the same age ahahaha. I get mistaken for a high schooler a lot too >_< Glad to see I'm not the only one :P Sorry for the double comment. hope you don't mind :P


  7. @Ada That's exactly why I was so excited about the award! All the other blogs have so many followers and when you're starting out it's hard to get a following, you really have to promote yourself.
    I remember when I read your description and read "molecular biology and biotechnology major" I was so happy! I feel like you're my very own science partner but on my blog, ahaha. It's kinda like, when you get teamed up with a nice lab partner and every lab session is fun because the person is nice, ahaha. I have weird analogies >_<

    JPOP and KPOP definitely FTW!

  8. AHHH! I feel like I'm late for this award but I will do it for the fun. Thank you for the nomination. I am truly honored!
