The Liebster Award

Last week I was nominated for the Liebster Award! I am so grateful and happy to be nominated for this! I was nominated by the lovely Amy from Living With ME.

The award goes to bloggers who having been blogging for less than 2 years and less than 1000 followers.
If you have been nominated, the Rules are as follows:
  • Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog, in your blog.
  • Display an image of the award in your blog.
  • Answer 11 questions that are asked of you by the person who nominated you.
  • Nominate up to 11 bloggers to receive the award next.
  • Ask these bloggers 11 new questions that you provide.
  • List these same rules in your own blog.
  • Inform those people who you nominated, that they were nominated for the Liebster Award, and provide a link to your post so they can learn more about it.

My answers to Amy's questions:
  • What made you start your blog?
I answered this *sort of* in my last blog post, but I'll say it again in more detail. I wanted to make a YouTube channel, but my parents were unsure and I knew I didn't have enough time to film and edit videos, what with all my school work and other activities. So I thought blogging would be the next best thing! And I love it so much! I am so pleased I started blogging first, but I am still thinking about YouTube....
I'm so happy I started blogging as I have learnt loads already and I can't wait to learn more!
  • Have you had anything life-changing happen to you?
I don't think so. Not yet anyway. There have been a few things that 'rocked' me I suppose. My little brother being born was pretty life-changing I suppose, also when my Great Grandad died I got pretty 'rocked' *even though I was only 8*. This next one hasn't really 'happened to me' directly but when Malala got shot in the head, it changed me massively as a person. I became more 'world-weary and cynical', as my English teacher would say. She's been getting a lot of publicity on my blog recently, hasn't she?!
  • What is your favourite animal?
Other than dogs, probably giraffes or elephants.
  • What is your favourite TV show?
I don't watch a huge amount of TV, but I love Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway, Russell Howard's Good News and Miranda (but that's not on TV anymore! *sadness*).
  • If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I have always wanted to go to France. ALWAYS. Ever since I was about 7, and I haven't been yet *sadness*. I think I'd most want to visit the 'sites' like the Eiffel Tower, The Louvre and L'Arc de Triumphe (I hope that's how you spell it) and, obviously, DISNEYLAND.  
  • How do you like to relax?
I love to listen to music and watch YouTube videos. Oooh, I also love to go through my Bloglovin' feed (link in sidebar) and my Reading List to catch up on everyone's blog posts!
  • What do you like to do at the weekends?
Very similar to the previous questions as I only really have time to relax at the weekends. But I also like to catch up on TV shows and blog!
  • What is your dream job?
I also answered this question in my Q&A, so I might just say the same and change it a bit.
I haven't thought about this that much to be honest. I think I'd like to do this or YouTube for a career. I know its very hard, but I could at least say I've tried! I watch how many incredible opportunities the 'internet famous' have and I'd love to d that! I know I definitely have a long way to go, but everyone starts somewhere! I don't think this would be a career I could tell the advisor or my form tutor though!

  • If you could have a special skill, what would it be?
The ability to concentrate all the time. I get distracted sooo easily. But I don't try and do it. I don't know what it is. A lot of the time I'm extremely tired and/or have a headache and I just daze out. A lot of the time, I'm not thinking of anything, I'm just sat there, I can still hear but the words are just going in one ear and coming out the other. I probably should get help.
  • What is your earliest memory?
I have always told myself this, I'm not sure whether I do actually remember this or whether someone told me about it when I was younger, but I remember going to visit my sibling who is 2 years younger than me, in hospital. My sibling had open heart surgery when he was 6 weeks old and I remember going to see him in hospital after *or before, I'm not sure* his operation, that, thankfully, saved him.
I remember seeing my tiny  *he was VERY small* little sibling lying in a cot with tubes coming out of him, wearing a little hat and a tiny hospital band. On a happier note, he did survive *thank God* and grew up to be a very good singer (a very proud sister, I am) and extremely irritating, ah siblings!

  • What made you smile this week?
I'm not really sure for just this week, so I'll say what's made me smile recently *most of these will be links to videos, btw*. Also, by watching these, you may be able to understand my humour more:
