May is finally upon us and, this morning, we are also able to report that news of the Spirit Animal Awards have reached Number 28. Having been nominated by a fellow blogger (thanks, Paul!), sources close to our dear young woman claim she is extremely nervous – as following rules isn’t her strong point.
The Rules Of This Award:
- Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their page (check!)
- Post the award picture on your blog (check!)
- Write a short paragraph about yourself and what your blog means to you
- If you could be any animal, what would it be
- Pick and notify ten nominees
When asked about points 3 & 4 the young woman said:
“About me? Why would I want to bore anyone with that? Haha! Alright then – I’m Agnes, 26- years old, frantically trying to sort my life out – as I refuse to be one of those people who just moan about how unhappy they are without actually doing anything about it. When I first started this blog, it was mainly because I’d missed blogging. However, since then it’s turned into a bit of a lifesaver in that it has given me a creative outlet and also helped me to reflect and see the funny side to both mine and other people’s reactions to everything that happens in my daily life.
Everytime I get asked this question (i.e. what animal I would be if I could only pick one) I always say the same thing – that it’s impossible for me to just pick one as it would change depending on the situation I’m in. When I’m stressed, I’m like a hamster on crack, frantically running around trying to work out what needs to be done. When I’m chilled out, I’m probably more of a cat as I do love my ‘cat naps’ and I’m really independent. In addition to these furry creatures, I have also been called a Rottweiler (due to my skills and tireless efforts in ‘sniffing’ out whatever information required, no matter who I need to ask) and a ferret (due to my weird ability to pick up on mistakes other people miss) by my colleagues at work. So, as I don’t want to ‘break the rules’, could I be a mutated mixture of all of them? No? Ok….So, how about this – I lose all the fur and turn into a chameleon? Sound good? Ok!”
Further to the young woman’s statement, we are happy to report that she has nominated the following bloggers to join her in her quest:
- New England Nomad
- Admirably Legal
- The V Pub
- Mrs Dee
When asked for any final words of encouragement the young woman said: “They’re all amazing so I’m not sure they need any encouragement from me! But I will say this – Thank you guys for all your support! We’re all in this boat together and I couldn’t do what I do without you! Let’s keep on ‘rocking’! (If anyone has a problem with it, tell ’em to ‘blog on’! – Yes, my bad sense of humor is still very much alive!)”
