The Handwriting Tag

Over the summer, the wonderful blogger Fab Writings nominated me for the Handwriting Tag. Thank you! I’m sorry this took me so long to post.

Quote Challenge Day 3

Thanks to alceptress for nominating me!

For my final quote, we turn to music, and a hard rock band called Alter Bridge:

“We have our misfortunes,
the darkest of days,
but we must endure and keep strong.
Just look to the morning,
the promise awaits,
and know that this life must go on.

And the sun always sets,
the moon always falls.
It feels like the end;
just pay no mind at all.
Keep rolling —
rolling —
Life must go on.”

– Alter Bridge, “Life Must Go On”

Quote Challenge Day 2

Thanks to alceptress for nominating me for the three-day quote challenge!

In my early teens, I worshiped a manga called The Prince of Tennis. As an avid tennis player myself, I appreciated the characters’ tenacity as well as their humorous twists on regular tennis shots. One of my all-time favorite quotes comes from the series’s author and illustrator, Takeshi Konomi:

From the beginning of the ninth book — my favorite quote of all!

“What’s worthwhile is never easy.”

This applies to anything — from sports to writing to whatever your passion may be. There are no shortcuts; we have to put in the work.

Today I’m nominating Blooming Laura and anotetohuguette. The rules: post three quotes across three different days, link to my blog, and nominate two new bloggers, if you choose to do so 🙂

Missed part one? Check it out here. Stay turned for part three!

The Versatile Blogger Award

There’s a saying that things happen in threes. When it comes to this blog, though, it sure seems like good things occur in groups of two: both Johnny from sci.casual and 200 Saturdays until Paris have nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you both! 🙂

The Versatile Blogger AwardBoth of these blogs are awesome, though their topics differ greatly. Sci.casual is all about science, and you know what I love? Science. Don’t let my creativity-based blog fool you — I was almost a geologist. 200 Saturdays until Paris has recently posted some great personal growth pieces that I absolutely adore; you don’t need to love Paris to relate!

I’m positively honored to have been chosen for this award by both of these kick-butt blogs. Continue reading

(Double?!) Blogger Recognition Award

Once upon a time, I took a mini-vacation from work, blogging, writing, life, etc. by traversing into the Adirondacks for a few days. Blogger awards must be in the air this spring, because while on hiatus, I received two nominations for the Blogger Recognition Award (right after my Liebster Award nominations just two weeks ago). Wow!

Thank you to both Mystery Date with a Book and (Over)Analysing Literature! You both rock!
