Premio Dardos

premio-dardos-l-1

I’m a terrible person. I’m the most obnoxiously horrendous person you’ll ever meet. I might just throw myself down a cliff. I’m so sorry Ruchi I forgot about this award you nominated me for some time back. I’m really sorry, I mean I THOUGHT I’d do it later but the ignod that I am, I forgot. Again, I’m so sorry.

So, keeping the self-loathing and the guilt aside,

Thank you to the wonderful author Ruchi of the more than wonderful blog  https://cometravelalong.wordpress.com/ . If you’re looking to have some travel adventures from the eyes of an intrigued Indian, this is your place to go to. And as I always say in every award post, to some people these awards might seem like a futile activity and you may as well shadow them in your ignorance; your choice.

But if you choose to revamp your point of view, one must look at these as a frequent ‘pat on your backs’ and a very modest and polite way to let you know you’re on the right path. These little things help give us a little push we require if we drag ourselves on the road.
They are a resurgence for those who’re a little lost and a motivation to those who’re already doing well.
So this one goes to all the awards out there.

Dear Awards,
Don’t be disheartened, there are some people who care about you. 😛
Love,
Aakansha.

Anonymous from http://graypoet.wordpress.com. THE BEST poetry blog I’ve come across. THE BEST.

From what I noticed; so many people in my Followers and Follow list  have never interacted or communicated with me or my posts. They have somehow preferred being a silent observer. I appreciate your decision but it’s sort of sad to see so many people who chose to read my posts but have never given me their thoughts and opinions.
Blogging is a community. A place where we interact and share our views and thoughts and ramblings. Every kind of a person and every kind of a thought is welcomed and encouraged and appreciated. Fell free to communicate and always believe that no matter what you write we’d understand and encourage!

Whether or not you choose to accept and do the formalities of this award is your decision, but I’d request each one of you nominated to do it and give everyone a chance. 

Thank you so much to each one of you who’s been a part of my blogging journey. It’s been a spectacular odyssey!

The Guidelines:

Thank and link the person who nominated you. Add the award to your post and site. Answer 10 questions provided to by the person nominating you. Provide 10 questions of your own to be answered by those you nominate. Nominate your bloggers for the award. (AND comment on their blogs to inform them.)

10 Questions I’m required to answer-:

1.)What is your favorite color and why?

Well, I have to say Black. I know you might think of it as ominous or dark or well .. ghastly. But c’mon, black is like the king of colors. Be it a sumptuous Gala dinner or a funeral-it goes well with all the occasions plus, it suits me a lot.

2.) What is your happiest childhood memory?

I have to say every moment spent with my best friend is a happy memory. 🙂 (We are BFF’s since childhood)

3.)If you could travel anywhere where would it be and why?

You know, I don’t want to limit myself to one place. I want to travel the whole wold, from the packed streets of New York to the serene sidewalk of Paris. Every nook and corner.

4.)What hobbies do you enjoy?

*Hands Up* I confess I’m a pretty versatile person when it comes to hobby. Which means that I LOVE SINGING AND MUSIC-I would practically die without my playlist and also love art and craft. I enjoy watching football and also READING. I would quietly spend my whole life in a library.

5.)What is your least favorite food?

Hmm. *LEAST* favorite food, well, I hate broccoli, Ridged gourd and Bitter Gourd. *Tries not to throw up*

6.)If you were given $10,000 today, what would you do with it?

Pack my bags, take my best friend and go on a vacation. Somewhere remote and peaceful.

7.)Which flower do you feel best describes you?

Orchids. They are colorful and lively.

8.)Puppies or kittens?

Puppies any day!

9.)Which season is your favorite and why?

WINTER! WINTER! WINTER! Why? Well, I published an entire post about this! There’s something eerily magical and tempting about the smoothness of the snow and the soft chilly winds. *Drools*

10.)If you could swap lives with a celebrity, who would it be and why?

Danneel Harris Ackles. WHY? Because she’s the wife of the hottest man on Earth-Jensen Ackles.
