The Awesome blogger award x2 *Cheers*

Hey hey lovelies. How are you on this lovely day? I’m doing quite good! I am back with another award and I AM SO EXCITED!! I was nominated by the wonderful Erin over at her blog, KittyJade and I was also nominated by the amazing Jirah, over at her blog, Jirah Merizz. So thank you so much Erin and Jirah for nominating me, you guys are the sweetest 🙂 Tags are super fun and they’re lovely for when I have no ideas of what to post! Anyways, I was thrilled to be nominated, it means so much! ❤️

The Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Credit the creator (Maggie @ Dreaming of Guatemala)
  • Answer the questions you were asked.
  • Nominate at least five bloggers and inform them of their nomination.
  • Give them ten new questions to answer

Erin’s Q’s:

What are some of your favorite songs to listen to at the moment?

Right now, I’ve been loving listening to old hymns from church.. some of my favorites have been Come thou Fount of Every Blessing, Jesus paid it all, and Yet Not I But Through Christ In Me. They’re just so beautiful and I’ve really been loving them recently!

If you could shift into an animal, what animal would you want to turn into?

I’m going to say the same thing as Erin, a bird! Birds are so graceful (usually anyways ;)) and I love watching them just drifting through the sky and floating around. It would be such a powerful and breathtaking experience to be able to fly like a bird, dipping and swooping!

What is one thing you are currently obsessed with?

Writing letters, journaling, and texting my friends. During quarantine, the thing I miss most has got to be my friends, theyre pretty awesome 🙂 ❤️I’ve been writing quite a lot of letters to my pen-pals and I got some new pen-pals recently from Finland so it’s been really fun to get to know them and start learning more about them! I’ve also been really enjoying journaling, a friend sent me these stickers (on the pic below) and I loved how this page turned out! And I’ve been texting my friends a ton, trying to keep in touch!

If an unstoppable force collides with an immovable force, what happens?

Well. um. I-. I don’t know. But since I read Erin’s post and comments, I learned that the forces would work against each other and eventually come to a stop? I think anyways, let me know if any of you are physics geniuses!

What is your favorite book that you read in 2020 so far?

Hmmm. *tries to think of what I’ve read this year* *fails*

I read The Fault in Our Stars, and loved it as usual but I think I need to recall a book that I read for the FIRST time this year. Okayyy… I recently read The Lovely War and really enjoyed it! Ooohhh I also loved Wait for me, I definitely reccomend both of those!

What is the best piece of advice that you’ve received?

I don’t really get advice from people.. That sounds bad but I can’t really recall when anyone really gives me advice. The most repeated piece of advice that I HAVE heard has gotta be “Trust God’s plan.” I also believe that the advice “Live in the moment”, is one of the most important pieces of advice you could receive! Give me some advice in the comments, I could always use advice 😉

What is the best gift you’ve ever received?

My life? Idk? I’m pretty happy that I happened to be born on this world and the life that God has given me is pretty amazing and I’m so thankful for it. Another one of my favorite gifts has got to be Birkenstocks and takis xD Also getting anything in the mail is such an amazing gift, I love it! Me and my friends have been sending quarantine mail to each other and its so fun!

If you could spend a day with anyone (fictional, alive, or dead), who would you choose and what would you do together?

When I was little I always dreamed about Laura Ingalls Wilder coming alive again and me showing her our modern world. I always thought it would be so cool because she would be super amazed and probably horrified at how far our world has come, I mean we have cars that drive by them selves now and she would be horrified at how scandalous some clothing is 😂 I think it would be really fun to hang out with her though, I love showing people around and yeah, it sounds fun? ( heyyyy maybe I should be like a tour guide or something?? Theres an idea xD)

What is your dream reading space?

Wellllll…. I really love reading in my bed with a fuzzy blanket but I mean a nice little cozy chair like this and some plants would be pretty cool 😉

Picture from Pinterest 🙂

What are your goals (reading or otherwise) for 2020?

Just live a good life. say yes. meet some new people. be kind and try to be the sunshine. grow closer with Jesus. Fill up some journals. Be more active. start driving. get out of my comfort zone. grow my blog. stay friends and maintain relationships. grow relationships. spread the word. be a light. the list goes on and on……

And NOW, onto Jirah’s questions!

If there’s no quarantine, what are you doing right now?

There is a quarantine right now, sadly. I’m getting quite sick of it but I’m enjoying the down time and the excuse to slow down 🙂 IF there was no quarantine, I would be at softball practice, which sounds pretty fun. Although typing this blog post is also quite fun 😉 I honestly would enjoy either but I might pick softball practice over blogging (sorry!!!!!) because I was really looking forward to this season. 😦 Oh well though.

What are some of your favorite Netflix series?

I love AWAE, it’s really the only Netflix I watch bc my mom doesn’t like Netflix but I loved it 🙂 Anne and Gilbert are goals ❤️

How long have you been blogging already?

Let’s see… I’ve been blogging since November so: 5 months now! That’s not that long but it also is quite a while! Thank you guys so much for following along!

What are some of your favorite posts that you’ve written?

Hmmm I really love all my bullet journal posts, and I was quite proud of my latest one which you can read here !

What inspires you to blog?

okay tough one. All my blogger friends inspire me and I was going to link to them all but I realized that I couldn’t possibly link them ALL so yeah, all of you guys inspire me though! ❤️❤️❤️

Would you still write if WordPress never existed?

I think I still would, I would probably just use blogger *hides face* It’s not that bad, ofc I love WordPress because thats where I started but I kind of knew of blogger/blogspot before I knew of WordPress. So yeah, I would hope I still would write!

Describe one goal you’d like to achieve before the year ends.

Grow closer with God. Recently during Quarantine I’ve been really reading the Bible more and I recently started using YouVersion which is awesome! I highly recommend it, you can do all kinds of reading plans, either by yourself or with friends and it’s been really nice 🙂 I’m doing a plan right now called Habits Of Happiness and its really quite amazing!

Would you rather have a cat or a dog?

Dog. I don’t have anything against cats, I just like dogs better?

What is your favorite book?

The Fault in Our Stars. bet u didn’t know that huh? *raises eyebrows* 😂

If you had to change your name, what would it be?

Maybe Madeline, I really like that name. But I also really like my name, so I don’t know if I had the choice to change my name if I would want to!? Would you change your name if you could and what would you change it to?

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

I nominate:

Okay I nominated 8-9ish people, thats enough right? As always, no pressure if you don’t want to or can’t do this, that’s fine! If you do end up doing it, let me know, drop the link in the comments so I can check it out!

My Questions:

  1. Favorite meal?
  2. What’s the first thing you notice about someone?
  3. What was your favorite game as a child?
  4. What is a trend that you hate/hated?
  5. What makes you feel accomplished?
  6. How is quarantine going? or how did it go if we ever get out of it?
  7. What is the highlight or most anticipated thing during your year?
  8. What is the outfit your wearing right now and on a scale of 1-10 how do you rate it?
  9. How many unread emails do you have right now?
  10. If animals could talk, what animal would be the most annoying?

And there’s that! Do you have any amazing advice for me? What makes you feel accomplished? Would you change your name if you could? Did you enjoy this post? I hope you did! Have a great day!

xx, Jasmin

  1. Huge huge CONGRATULATIONS 💃💕 My mom doesn’t like us watching Netflix either! I started watched AWAE but found it too…boring? YIKES I shouldn’t say that lol. Have you seen the animated cartoon? I watched that as a kid and it’s hard to adapt to this Netflix version lol 😂😂

    1. Thank youuu 💕 Haha #strict-ish parents (idk exactly what to call them) *highfives* 😂
      Wait really?!? Haha it’s nice to hear others opinions tho! Hmm… I think I’ve heard of it but never watched it, it makes sense that you liked the childhood one better, movies we watched during our childhood were the literal BEST 😂
      Thank you so much for reading! ❤️❤️

      1. I like #strict-ish parents, so that’s what I’ll call em too😂 I don’t have anything against the Netflix version, but whenever I watch it I remember my childhood tv show and then start singing the theme song obnoxiously all day LOL. My siblings get so irritated, but that’s what an older sisters gotta do! It’s MY JOB. 😂😂
        And anytime! I love your writing style! It’s so chill and laidback, but so personal too 🙃💕

  3. I honestly really like your name! Sometimes I do wish I had a different name because I don’t feel like my name is ‘pretty’ or something so yeah. But great post!<3

  4. Hey Jasmine! Love what you are doing and this post is amazing! I might inspire myself for a future post (don’t worry I’ll tag you) stay safe xx

  5. Thank you so much for answering my questions, Jasmin! You really brought a smile to my face. That chair looks super comfy! The universe will hand it to you one day, I’m sure. Then you can curl up and pray, read, blog and write letters.
    Taking inspiration from your beautiful blog, I have started writing letters recently! My friends are the loveliest, and we’ve been able to keep regular contact through paper. It’s much more sentimental than a text (though I of course appreciate those too) and a lot of fun to write. Those stickers look so cute!
    Hope you achieve your goals, make sure to let me know how you’re getting on with them.
    Take care,
    Erin x

      1. That’s very kind! I like looking through old letters, it’s cute to see how much I’ve grown. Must start adding the date on though, I don’t know what year some of them are from! Take care x

  6. I didn’t know you watched AWAE and yes, Anne and Gilbert are goals(and super cute)!! I’m beyond sad that they canceled the show because there’s so much more they could have done! The Fault in Our Stars is a good book and have you seen the movie?

  7. Ah I love tags, Jasmin! Great job answering those questions! Just gonna throw it out there, if you’re looking for a great read during quarantine (albeit a long, but edge-of-your-seat type read😉) I highly recommend War of Loyalties by Schuyler McConkey! Enjoy! ❤
