The Versatile Blogger Award || Fun Award

Hey beautiful people!

Thank you so much Meghan at Meghan’s Whimsical Explorations & Reviews for tagging/nominating me for The Versatile Blogger Award! I’ve actually never been tagged in this one…that I’m aware of…so this is pretty neat! Meghan’s my Canadian blogger buddy, who I’ve been lucky enough to get to know more over the past couple of months. She’s a truly kind person (and funny too) with great content (obviously, since she was nominated for this as well ha-ha). Please go visit her blog!

Time to get this party started!

The Rules

  1. Thank the person who gave you the award.
  2. Include a link to their blog.
  3. Select 7 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  4. Nominate those bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.
  5. Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

7 Facts About Me

One. I’ve been vegetarian (borderline vegan) for just over 4 years now. Since I have no gallbladder though, I may have to begin eating meat again since this caused my body to hate most foods…even though I love to eat. If it wasn’t for this, I would stay meat free forever!

Side Note: To each their own — I really don’t care if you eat meat; there’s studies showing pros and cons for both in the environment and our bodies.

Two. I’m drawn to nature in the most simplistic of ways — people CONSTANTLY go on about my love for the simple beauties of life. An astrophile, dendrophile, heliophile, limnophile, photophile, pluviophile, selenophile…all then fun things. Twilight makes my heart ache, catching snowflakes makes me smile, standing in the rain and looking up is a favourite past-time, stargazing makes me feel infinite, the changes in the sky give me butterfly feelings, the smell of flowers and in forests are like a drug to me, seeing light shine through the trees is magical…you get the idea. It’s stuff like this that makes me feel whole in this large universe. Ooh! Here are some fun words of nature lovers BTW.

Three. I’m obsessed with otters. I love all animals — but otters are just so…GAH! I just love water puppies so much! They hold hands!! If it was legal and also humane, I would buy an otter.

Four. I’m very sensitive to sounds — I’m very “sensory sensitive” in that way. Certain sounds really bother my ears and other noises make me startle easily. I’ve been told I’m skittish like a cat…

Five. My favourite “go-to” Disney movie is Tangled. I love all of the characters, especially Rapunzel and Pascal.

Six. I don’t want kids — and I’m okay with it. Kids are wonderful; a number of my friends have children of their own and I adore them completely! But I don’t have that motherly instinct that I’m supposed to have. Maybe one day I’ll change my mind (I’m only 27 years old), but right now I only see myself being a mother to a dog…puppies!

Seven. I’m an autophile…someone who loves being alone. Don’t get me wrong, I love people! I can be QUITE the “Chatty Cathy”. But I get drained really quickly during and after social events. Many people mistake me as an extrovert, since I talk a lot and organize hangouts. But I actually LOVE being at home and just spending the day to myself.

  1. Yay! My Canadian blogging buddy! 😀 Thank you for the lovely intro, it really made me smile! 😊 You’re too sweet! I’ve enjoyed getting to know you as well 🙂
    Man, that first gif is so mesmerizing! That’s awesome you’ve been vegetarian for so long!
    I feel you about being alone. I love being alone, especially after a long day at work, or a party/night out!

    1. Awe, of course!!! You’re a lovely human being 🙂

      Yea … unfortunately I have to introduce eggs and fish back in my diet but I plan to still not each as much as I can; just what i need to be healthy ha-ha.

      Ugh … so much yes!!! Like tonight, I love just binging my shows and working on my blog ❤

  2. Thanks for the tag! ❤

    I'm a vegetarian currently, it's a shame you might have to start eating meat again, especially if the vegetarian choice was due to animal welfare! I always say if I ever eat meat again I want it to be organic and locally sourced to reduce the carbon footprint a little.

    I don't see myself having children either, but like you say, one day that might change, I'm only 22 so I'm still very young to even be thinking about it really!

    1. Of course!!

      I love the vegetarian community. I try to buy locally sourced and as “ethical” as I can. At the moment I’ve only added eggs and fish back and so far that’s helped a lot — the problem is I have a hard time with soy, can’t have dairy, have a hard time with gluten and legumes, can’t have a high fat diet (no gallbladder causes this), and have a hard time with high fiber diets. But now that I’ve added fish, I’ve been feeling better and actually able to eat. I’m hoping to not have to add any other than eggs and fish!

      It’s nice to know I’m not alone ha-ha! I’ve always been on the fence about it but as I get older, I just find myself not having that motherly instinct. Or the desire to care for a little human. A dog WILL happen eventually though lol. But again, I’m only turning 28 this year, so I also have time to change my opinion on the matter.

      I can’t wait to read your responses!

      1. I’m glad to hear adding fish back has helped you out! Your dietary requirements sound like quite a hassle so it’s important to focus on your health before anything else for definite, even if it might not be what you want to do 🙂

  3. Otters are just wonderful, they play with pebbles which is just the cutest thing.

    I turn 34 this year, have never wanted children and still don’t want children but I am a cat mum and absolutely adore my husband’s 5 year old goddaughter and want to hold all the babies in the world because I friggin’ love a chubby baby.

    1. I KNOW EH!? I love them so much … ugh!

      I’m so glad to hear that. I feel as though society keeps judging me for my choices. My parents are super cool about it though. They completely understand my decision. My mom just says to not close doors (which I agree with) but that there’s nothing abnormal about me not wanting kids — they say me having fur babies are the perfect grand kids ha-ah!

      I’m about to become a godmother, which is super exciting! I feel as though that’s plenty for me. I think kids are great — just don’t want one to care for all the time ha-ha!

      1. Society will judge you and it will do it constantly. I keep getting asked all the time if babies are now happening (it happened before I got married and now I’m married it’s even worse). My responses run the gauntlet of the rainbow between polite and well, not so much!

        Absolutely, never close a door on anything. It’s anyone’s right to change their mind about anything at anytime.

        Godchildren are great, all the fun and minimal responsibility. My husbands goddaughter is a delightful weirdo and I adore her!

      2. As much as it bothers me that society keeps judging me, I’m glad my mom and dad are on board; because really, those are the two opinions that matter to me the most ha-ha!

        I’m really excited to meet the little munchkin! She’s due in April which is coming so fast!

  4. I love all these answers!!! I love the sense of peace I always feel when I’m out in nature! I truly want to make a habit this year of going on more hikes and experiencing the beauty of nature more, in general. I’m also the most skittish person imaginable! Every little sound makes me jump out of my skin. 😂

    Also sea otters are the cutest animals ever! I adore them!

    Thanks so much for the nomination, Jenna!! 🤗

    1. Thank you, love! You’re so sweet. Nature is basically my form of therapy. The other day it warmed up here and we got puddles … and yes, I jumped in them. My colleagues giggled but they love that element of my personality — and I do too 🙂

      Ugh … I wish I wasn’t as skittish. People think it’s cute but it’s very troublesome!

      OTTERS!!! Sea and River Otters are my life. They remind me so much of dogs … which is probably why I love them so much ha-ha! Have you seen Finding Dory?? There’s a great otter scene … ❤

      And of course! I can't wait to read your answers! 🙂
