The Versatile Blog Award!

😄! Picture from Coffee in Style

What?! Fourth blogger award nomination in a week?! That’s crazy! No, I don’t mean you’re crazy, but I’m crazy! I mean, I’m feeling crazy! I mean- I don’t know what I mean! 😱😱😱

Thanks for the nomination, Coffee in Style, I’m honoured! ❤️

Like the previous awards, in the Versatile Blogger Award, the participating blogger does the following:

  1. Display the award on your blog
  2. Thank the blogger that nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  3. Share 7 facts about yourself
  4. Nominate 10 bloggers for the award and provide links to their blog

Let’s start!

7 Random Facts!

Since my last few posts had pretty long facts about myself, let’s do something different and have a random list of short(er) facts this time!

#1: Tea

I’m a tea person all the way… until the Chinese doctor told me I can’t drink black or green tea due to health, which means I can’t drink 90% of my tea collection! 😱 I can still drink camomile and peppermint tea, and pu-ehr Chinese tea, so it’s not as bad as it sounds. 🍵

#2: Coffee

I like the smell of coffee, but I can’t drink coffee unless it’s a latte or mocha (too bitter for me). I usually order a decaf, otherwise I’d jump and talk like a bullet train for half an hour and then crash! ☕

#3: Wide Feet

Yep, I have wide feet, kind of like a duck’s! I have trouble buying shoes or slippers every time, because if the width fits, the length is too much. That’s why I like open heel shoes and slippers. 😀

#4: Skating

I may be horrible with any sports involving feet or legs, but I can skate all right! I used to go rollerblading when I was a kid, and I can skate around an ice-skating rink without touching the sides (except when I need to stop; I still haven’t quite picked up the ability to brake with just my feet). ⛸

#5: Sharpshooter

When it comes to shooting games at the arcade (those with an attached handgun), I’m quite a sharpshooter – I usually have an accuracy of 90%! I can tell when the gun isn’t calibrated properly, as it’s usually off by an inch or two instead of dead centre. But I’ve never touched a real gun in my life. 😛

#6: Mosquito

If you want a free mosquito repellent, just sit next to me, because I attract mosquitoes! They make a beeline for me, so usually in a group, I’m the only one who gets bitten. 😅

#7: Typing Speed

According to this typing speed test, I scored 429 characters/minute and 86 words/minute, which beats / equals 95.52% of everyone else who took the test! I never took any typing classes though (self-taught), and now I’m stuck using caps lock for capital letters instead of shift. ⌨

My Nominations!

Okay, here’s the tough part; I’ve run out of blogs to nominate! That shows how awesome all of you are. 😀

And because you’re all so awesome, I’m going to nominate all of you over again! Yep, I’m cheating like that. 😛

Random Tidbit?

I don’t have any soundtrack titles with “versatile” in it, so here’s a random article for 10 different ways to say you’re speechless! (I knew 8 out of 10 of that, so I learned something new too. 😄)

And, as always, have fun and remember it’s not compulsory! ❤️

~Nicolle ❤️

A Short Self-Compassionate Letter

Dear Self,

As always, I’m proud of you! Even though it’s a similar to the last three, you tried to make it a little different each time. 🙂
