blogaward

Hey guys! I haven’t done one of these blogging awards for awhile now, but it’s the perfect time somehow. Anna @My Bookish Dream and Mariana @Book is Glee tagged me for the Creative Blogger Award, so this will be my fourth time doing this one. Thank you guys!!! The facts will be tough, because I’ve told you guys so many things already…

The RULES:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  2. Share 5 facts about yourself.
  3. Nominate some bloggers in return and notify them about their nomination.
  4. Keep the rules in your post to make it easy for everyone to know what to do.

1. I’m currently spending way too little time on my computer. Like way too little! And I kind of miss it.

2. I’m rereading Him by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy and I’m loving it as much as the first time I read it. My babies are awesome!

3. I’m literally watching Steve Jobs with Michael Fassbender right now, and wow, this book is weird and intense.

4. I like my solitude. I’ve been surrounded by people for a couple of weeks, and I’m in serious need of recharging, eheh.

5. I kind of miss my bed!

Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Facts About Me

top 10 tuesday

Hello, welcome back to another Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is:

Ten Facts About Me (bookish or just general about you facts or ten facts about you as a blogger…whatever you want)

So, let’s see if I have 10 facts about me to share…


1. I’m still on a high about Portugal winning the UEFA EURO 2016

… So I’m apologizing before hand if I keep repeating it, and if I keep retweeting stuff about Football (Soccer), but I’m extremely happy and proud of these boys. Check out my post about it, here.

2. The Netgalley request button is my enemy!

Seriously guys, I need some self control here. I was doing super well a couple of months ago, but now I have 30 books to read on Netgalley, and some are for September and after. I request anything that sounds good… I have a problem!

3. … So is the One-Click Button on Amazon

It’s not even funny… if the book looks half good and it’s free, I get it. I’m hoarding books like crazy!

4. I’ve been kind of addicted to Wicked Tuna in the last few days…

… it’s just addicting.

5. I haven’t been into TV shows in months

This is weird for me, since when I started this blog it was mostly about tv shows. But lately I haven’t really been into scripted TV, I just can’t seem to bother to sit through a 45 min show… =/.

6. I love starbucks

Seriously, I love it. It makes me happy!

7. But I don’t like chocolate drinks

Yeah, give me starbucks, but none of those drinks with chocolate and shit. No no. Coffee, ok? I hate mochachinos, or when people decide to put chocolate on my delicious cappuccinos. It doesn’t go in there!

8. I’m in love with e-books

I was one of those people who thought that e-readers sucked and only physical books rocked. Then in August last year I got my Kindle. And then on January I uncovered the Kindle app for my phone. I haven’t looked back since. Now most of my monthly reads are on the kindle/app, and I love it.

9. I’m also in love with New Adult books

This should come to no surprise, but NA has been my go to genre lately, and I love it. To be honest, I just haven’t been in a big mood for fantasy.

10. One of my favorite things to eat are salads

I just love them. For me, the perfect meal is lettuce, arugula, onions, tomatoes, avocado, cucumber, feta cheese, dressed with salt, olive oil and vinegar… and now i’m hungry!

The Dragon’s Loyalty Award

blogaward

Hey!!! It’s time for an Blog Award post 😀 .  Michalah @Cape Town Dreamer  nominated me for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award – thank you so much! So, here’s how it works…

RULES:

1. Display the award on your blog
2. Announce your win with a post and link the blogger who awarded you
3. Present 6 deserving bloggers with the award
4. Link your awardees in the post and let them know of their being awarded
5. Write seven interesting things about you.


Facts

1. I should be in bed right now, instead I’m scheduling posts for the next couple of weeks, to make sure that the blog will be alive while I’m away – you’ll read this on the 18th, but that not when I wrote it 😛 !

2. I also just finished packing, and realized that I didn’t brought enough formal clothes from Portugal. Again, by the time you read this, I’ll be in Japan, and the clothing won’t matter anymore! 😀

3. I might be slightly addicted to Twitter… I know understand why I avoided it for years.

4. I’m super late on all my TV Shows and I don’t like it. But at the same time, I like the extra time for reading… decisions, decisions.

5. I love to bake and I miss it! I think I gave this fact a couple of times already… oh, well… I also love to cook.

6. I knitted the 4th Doctor scarf! I reduced it a bit, but it’s still large as hell. I did it for the Doctor Who 50th anniversary celebration in London.

7. I don’t own many fandom things, but I do have 10th’s Sonic Screwdriver and Hermione’s wand.


That is it! I won’t do the tagging, ok? I have no idea who has this one, it has been around for a while now. 😉

5 Random Facts about me (more live facts… very up to date)

  • I procrastinate… a LOT, this month in general has been terrible… I know I have a lot of work, but the more I think about it, the more I don’t want to do it… it’s bad 😦

  • I hate living with people. Not even kidding! Roommates that aren’t your friends are the worst. I live with 2 guys and a girl that I’ve never seen, but man, one of those guys is messy and always puts things the wrong way in the kitchen and it drives me mad!

  • I look just like my dad! The only physical think I inherited from my mom is the curly hair (the crying at all movies and the same predisposition for diseases – it sucks!). I could have her blue eyes, but nop!!!

  • I have a degree in Biology (microbiology and genetics) and a Masters in Human Evolution. I’m currently in my last year of my PhD in Biodiversity and Anthropology. Working in Academia and doing research was always my dream!

  • My favorite movie when I was little was Gone With the Wind. I remember it was so large, that it was usually divided into 2 screenings on sequencial days, and it would generally air after midnight. So I, with 9 years old, would go into the living room, curl up in a blanket and stay until 3 a.m. watching it, a lot – it aired a lot when I was younger, now not so much. I haven’t seen it in ages, but that movie always made me fell good! I was not a normal child, I had watched Gone With the Wind more times than I could count, and it wasn’t until a couple of years ago that I finally saw The Sound of Music!


Nominations (let’s go for 5)

If you’ve done this, like it’s probable, or you simply don’t want to do it, feel totally free to ignore this 😉
