It’s so nice when the people you know acknowledge your blog! I sometimes feel I’m writing to myself (which is fine. I’m comfortable with self-communication.) Thank you Evin, from Sláinte Cork for nominating me for Mrs Sparky’s Ten Commandments Award. What’s involved? I need to answer some questions about myself, and here we go…
*Describe yourself in 7 words:
Friendly, interested, loving, sincere, enthusiastic, eccentric, weird.
*What keeps you up at night?
Planning adventures and projects. Sometimes I’ll start writing little songs in my head or stories, sometimes I get really involved. It’s a problem that I get really excited about things when I’m trying to sleep, because I just want to get up and sing. Someone sleeps next to the music room in my house, so I’ve had to be really strict about no late-night song-writing. (Which, now that I think about it, could account for my lower song output!)
*Whom would you like to be?
The best version of Amy. It’s my ambition to keep trying to be a better person, with better skills. I have a loooong way to go, but I’m trying!
*What am I wearing right now?
But with a black and gold waist-cinching belt, and black tights. Spectacles. A head of curly brown hair, and a smile.
*What scares you?
- Greed, ignorance.
- Being misinterpreted.
- Animal cruelty.
- The quest for happiness – not fully knowing if I’m happy now or if it’s something that’s coming later.
- The concept that I’m wasting my life, that I’m spreading myself too thin and I should be focusing just on singing.
- Artistic confinement.
*What are the best and worst things about blogging?
Best: It’s nice to have a place to just get it all down. It doesn’t matter if no one reads it, it’s a thought that I had and it’s good to be able to revisit ideas and events with another frame of mind.
Worst: Not being able to do it while I’m running. I write the best mental blogs when I’m running!
*If I could change one thing about myself, what would it be?
I’d like to be more able to relax, and to suffer less joint and muscle pain.
*Slankets, yes or no?
No. They seem like such a good idea in theory… but no.
*Tell us something about the person who nominated you.
has beautiful eyes and a blogging addiction. She has lovely, long, straight hair and looks completely different when it’s up or down. In her apartment, Evin has a Little Liam, a fishy chair, and a staple gun, which she uses to staple things, and to ward off clowns with suspicious-smelling fridge foods.
My next step in this award is to nominate 10 others.
These are my favourites, and my friends! I really hope that you’ll all give it a go! 🙂
