Versatile Blogger Award

The lovely Aussie, Ellen from The Glow Down has nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award! Please go and check out her blog, I highly recommend following her as she is a lovely blog writer and person.



The Rules:
1. Nominate 15 fellow bloggers who are relatively new to blogging. 
2. Let them know that you have nominated them. 
3. Share 7 random facts about yourself. 
4. Thank the bloggers that have nominated you. 
5. Add the Versatile Blogger Award picture to your blog post. 

I have been nominated for this award in the past, but decided not to post about it. I felt in the mood today, so here goes:


Random Factoids:
1. I come from an unusually large family- I am the eldest of nine children! There are five boys and four girls. My youngest sister is almost three.
2. I love Hello Kitty! I have tons of Hello Kitty merchandise and I don't care if its childish, she makes me happy :)
3. I went to university for the wrong program without knowing it. I studied psychology when I should've enrolled in social work. I find the information that high schools gave to their students back when I graduated in regards to college/university to be flawed. I hope it has improved. 
4. I don't eat meat. I consume fish, though. This makes me a pescetarian. I haven't eaten meat since age 17.
5. I hate driving but I couldn't live without the independence I have due to owning a car. 
6. My favourite colour is turquoise. I have lots of turquoise eye shadows but I can't pull them off. 
7. I am obsessed with Mario! and I love playing video games. Since moving into my newest apartment I never play xbox because I have a crappy TV. I need to invest in a flat screen. I also was a 3DS. Oh and I need a tablet. I think I might buy a used Blackberry Playbook soon. 


The Nominees: 


I am also participating in a BLOG HOP! I am checking out lots of new blogs :) Hello to anyone who stumbles upon mine!

  3. OOOO thank you! I love these sorts of tags :D Also i totally agree with number 3. At 18 years old (in england thats the age anyways) we are forced to make the most important decision and that is deciding what to do with the rest of our lives without any knowledge or experience! So the university course I ended up taking was totally wrong for me also :(

    1. yes, in Canada it's usually 17-18 as well. The smartest people take time off between highschool and university to decide what they really want to do!!

  4. Thank you for the tag! High school tells you nothing about what to major in at university! I switched majors twice in my first degree and then realized I should have gone into Applied Sciences hence my going back again resulting in ten freakin' years of school!

  11. Wow, NINE CHILDREN!? And I thought I was rare. I'm the youngest of five. Thanks for mentioning me :) Try a matte blue instead of turquoise. The one i'm thinking about is the blue shade from the Loreal infallible eyeshadow collection. I'm scared of blue eyeshadows too so I haven't picked it up but I'm really tempted to and so i'm sure i will one day.

    1. yes, I know! big families are so rare these days so it's always shocking when people hear how many of us there are!
      I love the idea of wearing bright eyeshadows but I cannot pull them off. I wonder if its my skin tone? I will check out the one you mentioned though!!
