100 Followers and 3 Blog Awards!

Hey there, beautiful!! This post is for YOU!

I started my blog on the first day of August this year. I was scrolling through Pinterest and came across a ton of “blog challenge” posts.

I decided on this blog challenge, created this blog, and have now completed that challenge! Thanks so much to YOU! I honestly, truly didn’t think I’d get this many followers, ever. I just needed somewhere to share my stories, vent… something I could look back on in 30 years from now and it’ll all (hopefully) still be here. Then, I started getting a new follower almost everyday…and have even been receiving awfully sweet, uplifting, and encouraging comments I never expected.

And now, WordPress, I’m here to stay.

There are so many fun things to blog about. I discovered weekly memes such as WWW Wednesday, I now have a place to share all my favorite quotes from the books I read, I can blog about whatever I want; from having a great day with my man to having a bad day at work.

I have also been nominated by three lovely bloggers, for three different blogger awards throughout this month. I love all the blogger awards/tags out there, they’re always so fun and they help me find a lot of quality blogs to follow. I could blog hop for hours off these awards. They also help me get to know the blogger a lot more which makes me more (or less) interested in reading the rest of their blog.


Onto the awards:

The first award I was nominated for was the Unique Blogger Award by Bailey@Bailey’s Magical Lifestyle Blog! Thank you for nominating me for this award, Bailey! If you haven’t checked his blog out yet…you must! Every month he puts himself on a 30 day challenge to “work on the art of mastering the modern struggles of millennials” such as “30 days on mastering Tinder”! His blog is just super fun to read, and I know you’ll enjoy it!

The Rules:

  • Kindly thank the person who nominated you!
  • Answer the 3 questions asked by the person who nominated you.

I was also nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by the wonderful Vixxy Rose@Crazy Little Things Site! Thank you so much for nominating me, Vicky!

My Answers:

The Unique Blogger Award

The 3 Q’s:

Where is your most favorite place in the world? (Could be fantasy or real i.e. from a book, game, play, etc.)

–My most favorite place in the world is snuggled up in my bed next to my man. Nothing beats it, nothing ever could.

If you could describe yourself in 3 words, what would those words be and why?

–I just hate this question. It’s so hard to answer. Okay, um, I’ll choose…lazy, clumsy, and silly. I don’t know why, these are the things I can’t control.

What are you interested in that most people haven’t heard of?

–I’m super interested in lucid dreaming because I feel like I’ve been experiencing it a lot lately, but I know most people have heard of that.

My 3 Q’s to My Nominees:

  1. If you could live one week in someone else’s shoes who would you choose?
  2. Do you brush your teeth in the shower or do you think that’s extremely weird?
  3. Describe your handwriting. Is it big or small? Do you write in cursive, print, or a mix of both? Do you write in all caps or no caps?

One Lovely Blog + Versatile Blogger Award

7+7=14 Facts About Me:

  1. When I was in 7th and 8th grade I was so obsessed with writing utensils. If I ever saw a color or brand or type I hadn’t used before I’d have to at least write my name with it and if there was no paper around I’d write it on my arms so they were literally always marked up.
  2. In elementary school, I never grabbed a milk for my lunch and one day I had run out of lunch money and I was supposed to give it back but the lunch ladies told me that if I drank a whole carton of milk with my lunch I could have my lunch for free. I agreed, held my nose, and drank that milk then was later sent home because I threw up all over the floor in gym class.
  3. I had braces for 2 years and prior to getting them out I had to have 4 teeth removed.
  4. I got my period when I was only 9 years old and my mom didn’t believe me, she thought I had went off and got my cherry popped at just 9 years old.
  5. I am a huge fan of Tekken.
  6. I wear a size 6 shoe in women’s, a size 5 is too small but a size 4 in girl’s often fits and when they don’t it’s because they’re too big. Odd, right?!
  7. I could probably quote the whole School of Rock movie while watching it.
  8. I eat my pancakes, waffles, and toast with honey and peanut butter.
  9. I could eat a whole cup of green honey bobas plain.
  10. I drink a quad shot of espresso over ice with one shot of mocha and just a splash of almond milk from Starbucks everyday before I go to work.
  11. I own a pair of pink crocs and I wear croc sandals nearly everyday! Don’t judge me. I think the sandals are actually cute and the classic ones are hella comfy.
  12. I hate myself for this one but I’ve been smoking cigarettes since I was 14 years old. I can’t and won’t smoke any other brand of cigarettes other than Marlboro Reds.
  13. I love fruit. My favorite fruits are: yellow mangoes, lychee, nectarines, and kiwis.
  14. I found out I needed glasses when I was in 4th grade– my music teacher put a drum rhythm up for us to follow along, and she told us that if we couldn’t read the words on the poster to use the drums in the front row and I exclaimed, “oh I didn’t even know there were words!” She then wrote a note to my parents that I needed to get my eyes checked. I got contacts 3 years ago but I still prefer glasses.

My Nominees:

I’d love to nominate the three lovely bloggers that nominated me but I’m quite sure that’s against the rules.

If I nominate you, don’t feel any pressure at all to do any of this! You just happen to be the author of one of my favorite blogs to read! Since I’ve only been on WordPress for a month I don’t have nearly the amount of nominees I’m supposed to have. And also, if you’re nominated, I am nominating you for all of the above awards. You can do all, just one, or none– it’s really up to you. šŸ˜Š

I nominate:

I am only 99% sure this blog is a work of fiction but whatever it is; I really enjoy it and I am always looking forward to the next post. I don’t follow any other fiction blogs but this one has me entirely engrossed. For the sole reason that (I think) he is not a personal blogger, I am not nominating him but since it is definitely one of my favorite blogs to read; I want you all to check it out!:

This post took me all day– in between grocery shopping, a stop at Walmart, eating dinner, a Starbucks stop, and getting ready for work…I finally finished!! But I have to go to work now and don’t have time to find and start a new blog challenge just yet. I’ll be doing a “Dairy Free Me #2” post tomorrow, for sure and possibly picking a new challenge to conquer if I have time. If not, it will definitely be on Sunday!! Stay tuned!


Thank you for stopping by šŸ’‹

  1. Thanks for nominating me & congrats on 100 followers. I am so close to 100 now myself. That’s so crazy you got your period at 9! I know some girls do get it that young. I was 13, and I think that was an okay age to get it. I would have not liked getting it any younger than that, so I can’t imagine.

    1. You’ll get there soon, your blog’s awesome! šŸ˜Š

      And I know, I’m pretty sure 9 is like the youngest age it’s possible to get your period…I wish we never had to have our period. šŸ˜‚

  2. Huge congrats to your 3 nominations AND 100 followers!! My goodness, that’s amazing!! I really enjoyed reading your answers and the milk episode cracked me up, and your mom is funny!!!
    Last but definitely not least, thank you so much for putting in such sweet words about my blog. I’m honored ā¤

  3. Hi Hunida! Thanks so much for nominating me! Will be doing this soon and probably following the others you nominated too!

    Lucid dreaming. I haven’t done this since I was really young although when I go on vacation I remember my dreams a lot more than usual. I’m curious what kind of dreams do you have and much of your environment and actions can you control?

    I actually wear sandal crocs too! I always get slightly embarrassed when someone just has to announce that I’m wearing crocs but I mean they’re waterproof, give me some height, and are super comfy!

    Hunida you are so modest with the 3 words you picked to describe yourself. Let me help you. šŸ˜› Based on what I’ve seen so far I would pick the words introspective, intelligent, and persistent.

    1. Hi Keira! Of course, I love reading your blog! šŸ˜Š and I’ll be looking forward to reading your answers!

      Every time I have a bad dream I can tell myself in the dream that it’s just a dream and I’ll shout at myself to wake up in the dream and then I do. It’s so crazy!

      And omg, I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who wears crocs. šŸ˜‚ And the 3 words you’ve chosen for me are things I wish I could be more of, but you are so sweet, thank you! šŸ’—

  4. Really fun to read your facts. Thanks for sharing all of them. Funny that you also prefer glasses. I had contacts just after I got out of university and I wore them for about two years. Then one tore and I decided to go back to glasses and they felt so much more like me that I never went back.

  5. Wow, three awards at once! šŸ˜® I might need some time before I write my own reply post lol. You’re very sweet for nominating me. This took me by surprise, for sure. I truly enjoy reading every comment you have left on my blog and how supportive you’ve been. Sending good vibes your way! šŸ˜‡

  6. Awww thank you for the nomination! And congrats on your 100 followers (: I’ll get to working on this tomorrow!

    I’ve always wanted to lucid dream, it’s fascinating. I feel I’ve gotten close sometimes but I freak myself out šŸ˜‚ so I don’t think I’ve really made it happen.

    And I’m one of those that prefer wearing contacts lol. I like lounging around in my glasses, but going out I like the freedom contacts give me!

    1. Thank you, love!!! Can’t wait to see your answers. šŸ˜Š

      I don’t lucid dream on purpose! I used to read techniques on how-to when I was younger and it never worked but now it just happens and I kind of hate it!! Lol

      Ugh contacts are so annoying to take out and put in but I love the freedom they give me, too. I only wear them when I go to work though because on my days off I try to do as little as possible. šŸ˜‚

      1. You’re welcome! (:

        And I gotcha lol. That actually really sucks! I don’t know about you, but when I tried I would always get on some freaky level where I would psych myself out and force myself to wake up before getting too far lol.

        And they are definitely annoying lol. I can understand that! I just wish I could wake up and see šŸ˜‚

      2. Whenever I tried the techniques online to lucid dream it never worked but now sometimes I fall asleep and I just am able to control my dreams but most of the time I just tell myself to please wake up. It’s so creepy.

        I know, it would be a dream to just have perfect vision when I woke up lol. Those people are so lucky!!

        Liked by 1 person

      3. Yeah it never really worked based off of those for me, too! I only ever almost got it when I was super tired and made myself try to stay still lol. But it was always creepy and weird, nothing at all what I would want to lucid dream about šŸ˜‚ maybe I did it wrong. But I’d have to like force myself to wake up.

        And right?? People take their vision for granted haha. Laser eye surgery makes me nervous

      4. Yeah it’s always creepy and weird, never anything fun!! When I wake myself up my heart is always racing, it’s so crazy and I don’t know why it’s been happening to me so often lately.

        I’m scared of lasik too, ahhh I know a lot of people who have done it successfully but I’ve also known a lot of people who have tried to get it and their eyes weren’t approved for it for some reason or another. I don’t think I’d be approved anyways because my eyes are so bad but even if they were, I don’t think I’d be brave enough!

      5. Right? It should be fun, shouldn’t if? Not creepy and nightmarish! I stopped trying it when I sort of freaked myself out the last time lol. I wonder if it’s a combination of stress and anxiety?

        I’ve never really looked into getting it because as much as I want to wake up with good vision, the idea of letting a laser anywhere near my eye is terrifying. Even if they’ve been mostly successful! Haha I want to consider it but I dunno if I’d be brave enough either.

  7. Lol at you fact#4! Hahaha. I didn’t have my period until I was 13? Or 14? I guess. šŸ˜‚

    Also, you’re brave that you want to try Lucid Dreaming! I’ve read so many things about it and it’s just so scary, I don’t want to try and experience it myself.

    Thanks for the nomination and congratulations on the 100, lovely!! šŸ’–

    1. I lucid dream often actually and it is really scary. I don’t wanna do it, it just happens!! šŸ˜© You’re welcome! I’ve had a lot of fun reading your blog and getting to know you. šŸ’—

  8. Hunida, I am pretty sure I have experienced lucid dreaming!! However, I’m too scared to even admit it. But I don’t do it often. Also, have you experienced like knowing exactly what’s happening but you can’t move? I don’t think it’s lucid dreaming but it’s quite close to it.

    Also, I love school of rock!!! ā¤

    1. I think that is called sleep paralysis and that happens to me often too especially when I need to pee!! Lol School of Rock has to be one of the best movies ever created, right?! šŸ˜‚

  9. I got to know so much more about you reading this. I must say, I’ve never heard of lychee so I’ll have to look it up and I’ve never tried my pancakes or waffles with honey so I’m definitely gonna try that. I love it with peanut butter.
    Thank you for nominating me also! I was wondering which of the awards were you nominating me for?šŸ’›

    1. Ooh, lychees are so yummy. If there’s an Asian market near you, they’ll probably have some! And yes, pancakes, honey, and PB– try it!! šŸ˜›

      You’re welcome! I love your blog so much. I nominated you for all of them! You can do all 3, just one, or none! I just wanted to let you know I love your blog and thank you for all the support!! šŸ’—
