So I have gotten an iPod for Chridtmas. Words cannot explain how excited I am about this!!
And so, WordPress, it will be much harder for you to get rid of me!
Yes, people, I have actually managed to get 100 followers! I know I only posted a post about getting 90 followers a little while ago, but I think this also deserves a post!
I want to thank all of you out there who follow me! I know a lot of people probably skim over my posts and don’t read much I put up, but I know that there are some of you out there who read a good few of my posts and come back a good few times to read some more, and even comment!
Thank you all so much, this is pretty cool because I always wanted to start a Blog but never thought that it would be worth it as no one would follow me. I have been seriously proven wrong, and for once I am happy about that!
I will post a post during the week about followers and good ways to get some maybe, and obviously other ones too!
Have a good day/night!
- Thank the person who gave you the award
- Answer the 11 questions set by the giver of the award
- Ask 11 questions to those you pick for the award
- Nominate people for the award (bloggers with less than 200 followers only!)
I have gotten this award before, but I feel kinda rude not writing about it, especially as someone has gone through the trouble to give it to me again! So, I want to thank moving on and letting go for giving me this award! You should all go check this Blog out!
Now, the questions!
1. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you choose?
I would probably chose somewhere busy like Dublin, London or New York. I grew up in the country for a lot of my life and now that I am back in the city I never want to leave it!
2. What is the most life changing experience you’ve ever had?
I am going to sound cheesy but meeting my boyfriend had a huge effect on me. We were best friends before we got together and he helped me through a lot of tough things like bad break ups and things like that. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t had him there!
3. Who is you idol?
Mr. Billie Joe Armstrong. I love him, an awful lot. He has been with me all through my teens and is going NOWHERE yet!
4. If you could meet anyone, who would you choose?
Billie Joe… I just want to touch that hair…
Seriously… look at that like!
5. If you were granted three wishes, what would they be?
I would ask to be published. As quickly as possible.
To be given an unlimited amount of money (my life at the moment calls for a lot of money, I’m not obseesed with it or anything!)
And I would ask for a chef who would follow me around cooking my favourite meals for me everyday. I really love food.
6. Would you go back in time and change a situation or mistake even if it would alter your present life completely?
Nope, I wouldn’t change anything at all. Everything that has happened to me has made me who I am. And I’m happy with who I am, and I could not ask for a better family, boyfriend or friends. Plus all of my mistakes make some pretty good stories. I’ll tell you all them if you ever get me drunk.
7. If you had the chance to pick a superpower for yourself, what would it be?
Psychic. I wanna be able to read minds and move things with my mind. Yeah, I’m a nosey bitch and damn proud of it!
8. If you won a million dollars, what’s the first thing you would buy?
A house. Or my degree… Maybe I should buy my degree first… Or a puppy… There are far too many things running through my head all at once to answer this question!
9. What is your favourite characteristic that you possess?
I am very empathetic. I think that’s a nice trait to hold, and I am very happy I have it!
10. When you see someone attractive, what’s the first thing you notice about them?
Hair. I’m a sucker for good hair.
11. If you could do anything and be anyone, what and who would you choose?
I think I would be me, because I know me quite well enough to continue being me. And I would be a published author living in the house filled with my friends which we have been planning for quite a while now!
And, as I am super lazy I am going to stick with the questions I used last time:
1) What is the biggest thing you’re proud of doing in your life?
2) If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
3) Do you watch cartoons on TV?
4) If yes to the above, what’s your favourite one? (I love them, so this will interest me hugely.)
5) Where do you write?
6) Are you as obsessed with technology as me? (I am very).
7) What is your biggest craving food?
8) Why did you sign up to WordPress?
9) What kind of stuff do you write?
10) If you can’t be a writer, what would you want to be?
11) What was your favourite childhood toy?
Now, my nominees! I’m going to go with different people than I did last time so you all don’t have to answer the same questions again.

And there ya have it! The Liebster Award, congrats to you all!
Hello all you beautiful people!
Would you believe that I didn’t even need a can of Coke to finish my essay today? And I had it finished before it was even 6 o’ clock! I feel like a new woman!
Well… The same woman, just I don’t have any essay left to do. And I’m not shaking like I was after yesterday’s essay. WHOOP!
I have spent the rest of my day writing posts for all you wonderful people out there. As you may or not remember, I am going to the damned Gaeltacht next week, so I will not be here next week at all!
However, as WordPress is so damn amazing, I have found a handy little option that let’s me schedule my posts! I have been writing a few today and scheduling them for the different days of next week. As I will not be able to update ye all about what is actually happening to me- because I’ll be in East Jesus Nowhere- so instead I have an awful lot of random posts pretty much about anything that popped into my head!
SO if anyone comments on any of my posts next week, I am not ignoring ye, I am speaking Irish in Connemara! Trust me, I would much rather sit at my laptop and reply to people, but unfortunately that cannot be, so I am leaving civilisation for a while and when I come back I will be posting things about writing again.
I have really loved writing these random posts though, so depending on how well they have done by the time I come back I might end up writing more of them!
Anyway, I hope you all enjoy the posts I have written for ye!
I’m not gone yet though! So be expecting normal, boring old me-posts for a few days yet!
No too sure where I’m going with this post, but we’ll see where it goes.
I felt like I should write one as I haven’t for some time. Partially because of essays in college and partially because of my lack of internet this weekend!
Somehow I am still magically getting views even though I haven’t put anything up in a while- thank you to whoever is visiting my page!
I promise that from now on it will be far more interesting and I will figure out how I am going to do this while taking a break from my essays! I have a few posts I’ve been meaning to write, so they will be up soon!
Soooooo that’s pretty much it for my mini update!
I will talk to you all tomorrow through a much more interesting post!
Yet again I have surprised myself at how bad I am at keeping to a routine and continuing writing! This is absolute madness! I have not written in about two days, and I won’t write today either.
And you know what?
I’m ok with that. Maybe it’s just what’s meant to happen at the moment. I’m meant to just take it easy, let my head wander and let my story develop properly before I dive straight into it.
Plus I have essays this week and next week. Yes, it that time of the year when Facebook class groups are getting 4 people posting in them a minute asking for help with an essay that really isn’t all the difficult to do if you just read the damn question.
Yes, I am tired. And grouchy. And in serious need of a nice looooong shower so I can sing my worries and feelings and writing nonsense away into the shower head, and come out feeling fresh as a daisy.
Showers ARE my thinking cap.
I really hope I look better than he does in he shower… But that is pretty much how I shower! Singing, talking, humming, speaking Irish, whatever happens in the shower, stays in the shower. Unless I have a million dollar idea some day, that will come out with me.
Sooo, I do apologise for the lack of posts and for me being slightly over tired for this post being extremely odd and having no real point. But hey, this is my Blog and therefore a window into my mind, and this is what my mind has decided to share with you all today!
I didn’t get much sleep last night, and I thought I had held up well all day, but obviously my head was keeping it for my Blog.
I hope you all enjoyed my ramblings! Just had to drop by and let you all know that I am still here!
So after yesterday’s post where I spoke about my newly found Competitive Streak I somehow managed to get a new follower (hello new follower!) and surpassed my old ‘most views per day’ number. You guys are making it hard for me to get rid of the new competitive Charlotte!
I don’t mind though, really- I love seeing the notifications icon glow orange, it genuinely makes me excited and heats my body with happiness. That could be because I associate the colour orange with fire, but I’m going to say that it’s because I feel warm inside by the amount of people who actually read my Blog!
Now, I have openly admitted in the past how my Blog is not the most exciting thing in the world- but I am actually planning on making it better!
I have no idea how yet… Well, I have a few small ideas, like writing about things other than writing, which is a slightly obvious option, but it’s a start at least!
One other thing I meant to mention earlier than this is that I am aiming to read thirty books this year. It doesn’t seem like a lot, but with college, writing and hopefully soon a job it will keep me on my toes! I have read 6 books so far this year, so I’m planning on writing a post about that too and keeping you all up to date with the various books I’ve been reading- I started Sherlock Holmes, A Study in Scarlet, so at least I have a super great book to tell you about when I finish it!
I would hugely appreciate if anyone has any ideas on what you would want to see in a Blog, my Blog to be exact, that you comment below! I know that seems like a lazy way out just to ask people what they want, but as I’m sure you all know, you never know till you ask!
NOW I really do have to start studying. Otherwise I’ll never get into third year! I’ll update later about my writing hopefully, 2,500 aim again today, will make sure I get it before my week in college begins tomorrow morning!
