The Versatile Blogger Award!!!

I haven't posted anything, or even been online, for a while because I have been dealing with some personal stuff that I would rather not write about here. That said, I was so thrilled and honored when I logged on today and discovered that I have been nominated for both a Versatile Blogger Award by Holly-Bella Cassell from The Persephone Complex and a Liebster Award by Stephanie from VidathingS!!! :) Ermahgerd!!! Thank you both SO MUCH!!! I am sending the most positive vibes your way! :) If you haven't already checked out their blogs, please do so now because they are AMAZING - to have been nominated by these lovely ladies is totally awesome!!! :)

It really made my day to realize that people actually like and appreciate my blog (and that what I put out there isn't getting lost in cyberspace). I'm going to address the Versatile Blogger Award today because it was the first one that I was nominated for and tomorrow I will post about the Liebster Award :)

Allow me to escort you through this journey into the thoughts that travel through my weary mind...I will use some pictures as visual aids where I can.

Fact #1: Sometimes I wish my life was a musical. I couldn't tell you the amount of times I am struck by the desperate need to break into song. 

Fact #2: There are few things I enjoy more than losing myself in my writing. Sometimes I feel like reality is a prison. 

Fact #3: I'm petrified of the dark. I can't sleep in a house if there isn't at least one light on. 

Fact #4: I'm a neurotic, overly anxious, obsessive compulsive eccentric. Some people think I'm weird. I think I'm alternative. Maybe this is how I ended up as a philosophy student. 

Fact #5: I am, for the most part, a gigantic cynic but I think I might be a closet romantic. It's the only explanation I have for crying at the end of City of Angels (I generally find Meg Ryan and the romance genre rather painful). 

Fact #6: I really like chocolate and junk food. Which is terribly fattening and unhealthy. And I know this. But I don't care.  

Fact #7: I like things that are old - that transport me to a different time in history. Sometimes I think I was born in the wrong era. Typewriters, Singer sewing machines and The Beatles make me feel warm inside in a way that I can't really explain. 

Fact #8: I feel slightly uncomfortable talking about myself. I think that technology coerces us into exploiting our 'personalities' and seduces us into thinking we are more important than we actually are. Most of us are guilty of this. Me included. 

Fact #9: I don't drink coffee, but I really, really, REALLY like tea.
