countdown time...4 3 2 1

Hello everybody. So I just finished my first exam today and now I have three left. :) My school system might be different from those who live in the states, so it's basically two semesters with four courses each. So each semester you only have 4 classes, but they're different each semester, so you end up taking 8 classes each year, although in senior year you only have to take 6 but it's recommended to take more, I took 7. Anyways, that's just me rambling. I've been living in oversized shirts and leggings the past couple of days due to my intense exam revision, therefore, no outfit post and my ability to comment on blogs has diminished. So instead I'll post the lovely awards I received. I was so honored to receive them, especially since I got them both during the same post. Thank you so much :)

This first one is from Casey from sing before seven :

And this is from the lovely lady at 2 Percent :

10 Honest Things About Myself:
1. I have an addiction to sticky tabs and highlighters. So my notes are always colour coded and just really bright.
2. I am starting my first year of university in September and although I am really excited, I am also really scared for what is to come.
3. I would adore to study a semester abroad in Europe, especially England, France or Switzerland.
4. I don't believe in love at first sight, although I'm a hopeless romantic.
5. Although I have read all the Twilight books, own one, I've seen the movies and even contemplated going to the midnight book release for the last book, I hate Twilight and when people say it's better than Harry Potter, I will whole heartedly defend Harry Potter.
6.  I think I was born in the wrong Era. 
7. I  collect napkins, clean ones that is.
8. I have an addiction to Pellegrino. 
9. I have an unhealthy obsession with Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl and Friends. 
10. When something emotional occurs in my life I will imagine a certain song playing during the moment, so it feels as if I am in a movie.

And because I'm supposed to give this award to 7 bloggers, here are the 7 lucky ones. I chose some because they were the first clogs I ever read, and others because reading their blog always put a smile on my face:

- I must thank the person who gave me the award and list their blog and link it
- I must list 10 honest things about myself
- I must put a copy of The Honest Scrap Logo on my blog.
- I must select at least 7 other worthy bloggers & list their links
- I must notify the bloggers of the award and hopefully they will follow the above three requirements also.

So I have some various things in store for after my exams, which finish this Friday. This summer, you can all expect:

-a new header
-my first ever Vlog
-some new DIY's as well as some tutorials
-friends features, you will all get to meet some of my friends, most likely in a Vlog
-my own award to give away :)

+ some other things once I come up with them

Have amazing week everybody and I will be back on Friday with an outfit update!

What era do you feel like you belong in?

Annie said...

I think I have an unhealthy obsession with Friends too... I got the full ten-season set last December and I've probably seen every episode ten times over since then!

I have been told I was born in the wrong era, sometimes I think I was, and then sometimes I am content with the era I'm in. It's a off and on thing. also, if you would like, you can check out my blog:

Your blog title is genius, by the way. Why? Because it gives people permission to be imperfect. To embrace their humanity. To forego the glossy superficiality that one often finds on the web. I would love to hear what prompted the title. (I found your blog, BTW, from La Femme Chic, another blog I adore.)

The irony is that your vulnerability and willingness to just "be" in your photographs is so beautiful. :) And I really love you alter ego, lol.
