the versatile blogger award!

Hello, fellow bloggers!

I was nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award back in May and I’m only now getting to answer it, but IT’S FINE. Thank you so much Hannah @ But First, Fiction for nominating me and for being such a kind soul. Her post was also super interesting, full of nice facts, so go check it out!

RULES

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Leave a link to their blog
  • Tell us 7 things about yourself
  • Nominate 15 bloggers/bloggers you’ve discovered recently or follow regularly

FACTS

ONE. I love babies and families and follow a ton on YouTube & social media.

I am only eighteen and have no prospects of becoming a mom at least in the next ten years, but babies & families make me so happy! I don’t even know how to express it, but watching children grow and learn and talk and walk gives me a really wholesome feeling. I don’t have any babies around (my uncle just refuses to give me any cousins, apparently) and I’ve always been the youngest in my family, so I feel like it’s probably the lack of interaction that makes me so obsessed. Perhaps, having to deal with *actual* babies would change my mind, lol.

As for my favorite families to follow on YouTube, I adore: KKandbabyJ (Asian kids with blue eyes!), JesssFam (and her seven kids!), Mel and Shane (multiple languages!) and The FallCo Family (they’re all so smart!)

TWO. The Jonas Brothers were the first concert I’ve ever been to

I’ve been to a lot of concerts in my life, to the point where I’ve kind of forgotten some. I’ve watched Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, BTS, Arctic Monkeys, One Direction and some others live. I am not even fan of some of these artists anymore, but oh well, lol.

However, the first one was the Jonas Brothers, in 2009, when I was eight years old. It was a huge concert and obviously I was in the furthest seat ever, for safety reasons since I was still a child, but it was still memorable, nonetheless. They returned in 2010 and I was there too, as well as in 2011. Clearly, I’m a fan.

THREE. Bubba Gump is my favorite restaurant in the world

aI know it can be kinda hard to find a favorite restaurant, especially for me, because I always order the exact same thing everytime, so it’s not like I’ve tried multiple different dishes and judged all of them.

But I adore Bubba Gump since the first time I ate there. I’ve been to the US twice since then and I’ve had a meal there every time, to the point where it’s almost a tradition by now.

The entire restaurant is dedicated to Forrest Gump – the best movie ever – and it’s absolutely beautiful. The food is also delicious. Okay, I’ve only ordered the same dish every time, but the garlic bread is so tasty as well as the appetizers, so I promise I know what I’m talking about.

FOUR. I was the biggest Disney Channel fan.

I’m sure many of you can relate, but I was deeply obsessed with Disney Channel growing up. I watched every single one of the shows, to the point where I’d be around five hours glued to a TV, watching all of them.

I don’t know how healthy that was, but oh well. My favorite show used to be Zack & Cody, and Suite Life on Deck was the one I’ve literally watched from the beginning and can probably tell you all the specifics. I still loved most shows: Hannah Montana, Jonas, Wizards of Waverly Place, A.N.T Farm, Jessie, etc.

I also adored the Disney Channel Original movies – Stuck in the Suburbs and Jump In are my favorites, albeit the most underrated ones.

FIVE. I’ve been to a Model UN once!

I know, I feel so much like Lara Jean whenever I say that. Unfortunately, I didn’t meet any John Ambrose but I’ve had an amazing experience, nonetheless.

I don’t know how Model UN works across the globe, but in the one I attended, you could also represent the Press by choosing a newspaper. I was representing The Guardian UK and I had to write articles every day about the committee.

I think it was a better choice for me because I am way too shy to be a delegate and talk to so many people without messing up, lol. But it was amazing and I really wish I could go back!

SIX. I’ve never met a celebrity, but I did meet Benjamin Alire Saenz, Alwyn Hamilton and Kiera Cass!

Benjamin Alire Saenz and Alwyn Hamilton are some of my favorite authors and it was such an unforgettable experience to meet them. I am way too awkward to engage in conversations, but it was still fun anyway. Prior to the signing, Benjamin Alire Saenz also did a talk on sexuality, family and love and it was absolutely beautiful. There was literally no dry eye in the room by the end of it.

I also met Kiera Cass when I was a huge fan of her books and even though I have not kept up with the series, I’m still grateful for the memories, as I was surrounded by friends and family and had a really great time.

SEVEN. I keep things just so I can show them to my kids in the future

I feel like every trendy kid on Instagram these days is obsessed with vintage, right? Vintage clothes, records, anything. Which makes me think a lot about how, 20 years from now, kids will also be interested in what’s currently cool now, such as CDs, pen-drives and People magazines.

Therefore, I keep all the magazines with my favorite artists on the cover, along with all of their CDs, thinking about how I’ll be able to either sell them for 300$ in the future or just as a way to pass down to my kids a piece of my childhood/teenage years.

 

I won’t be nominating anyone today because I’ve just recently shared another Blogger Award and I feel like many people have also already been nominated for this one, but thanks again Hannah for nominating me!

    It’s so rare to come across young people who like children nowadays! I find them cute sometimes, especially when they’re not yelling. But they’re messy and loud, so I don’t imagine myself having one any time soon … It probably doesn’t help to have a younger brother.
    It’s so cool you’ve met Kiera Cass! I was obsessed with The Selection trilogy a few years ago, I’d have died to meet her haha

      that’s true! i definitely think teenagers aren’t as patient with kids. also, one of my biggest pet peeves is when young adults do stuff to mess with kids’ emotions just so it’s fun/entertaining. like, hiding a toy or something on purpose just to see the kid get mad/upset. every time i see videos of situations like that going viral, i feel like going after the person who posted it, lol.
      same!! i was really into her books and it was quite an eventful day, but i’m glad i had the opportunity!
      thanks for stopping by, marta! 😊

    I man not a baby person at all… but I admire the patience of people who are lol!

    I’ve met Alwyn Hamilton too and she was so nice! I remember she got up from her seat to take a proper picture with everyone who asked, which was really nice to see.

    I used to work with children and while it wasn’t always easy I found that they had this special gift when you were having a bad day or down even if they couldn’t possibly have known it to offer a joke or a game or something that would always wind up making me smile :)
    Also Bubba Gumps is amazing! There isn’t one anywhere near where I live but I went on vacation in Monterey several times a couple years back and it was so good. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

      that’s so true! i did have the opportunity to watch a pre-k class for an entire day and even though i only simply interacted with the kids, they still gave me drawings and notes at the end of the day and it made me feel so good! they can be a true gift!
      same here! i can almost taste the food every time i think about it, hahah.
      thanks for the comment! 💞

    Omg that’s so true! With all of my books & stuff from when I was younger I don’t want to chuck them away because what if my kid wants them? I want to be able to share all the books I loved with them (here’s a hoping they’re a bookworm (or else! 😡))
