I've been given the Stylish Blogger Award by Stephanie at Books Are A Girl's Best Friend, Bev at My Reader's Block, Bea at Bea's Book Blog, and Steph at Steph: Short & Sweet, and Bea also passed the Versatile Blogger Award on to me! Thanks everyone for thinking of my blog :D
The rules for both of these awards are:
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award!
Okay, let's see, 7 more things about myself...*wracks brain*
1.) In addition to reading I also do some creative writing — in fact, my sister and I have collaborated on a couple of writing projects and they've turned out to be lots of fun!
2.) I've participated twice in longboat races, which were exhausting but a great challenge :D
3.) I've climbed Mount Fuji and lived to tell the tale, despite the fact that I suffered from altitude sickness for most of the hike up.
4.) I was once in a choir that sang for the Canadian prime minister and the queen of England.
5.) In my first year of university I participated in a German play, acting the role of a pompous scholar and reciting a bunch of lines I didn't really understand (since I don't speak much German). Thankfully most of the audience didn't either!
6.) I once had a tarantula crawl across my hand (supervised, of course, at a bug museum :D)
7.) Even though it's been quite a few years since high school, I still frequently dream about being back there — too frequently for my taste!
I'm passing the Stylish Blogger Award (since the Versatile Blogger Award has been floating around the blogosphere for quite a while now) on to a few awesome bloggers I've discovered recently:
Stephanie at Poetry & Prose
Aylee at Recovering Potter Addict
Julia at That Hapa Chick
