More Awards Shawards. ;)

Anddd it's a Liebster award! Privy Trifles at Memoirs of Me generously presented this blog with a Liebster award. 'Liebster' is a German word for 'lovable'. Aww, thanks Privy! :D

There are a few questions asked by Privy that I have to answer. Without much blabbering (don't you think I'm blabbering less these days? :|), here they are!

1. Define yourself in one word.
Yeah, that answers right about everything I do. Or if you don't want the 'confused' theory, I'll say 'honest'. Believe it or not, that's a virtue I value. Highly. :)

2. If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be?
That is a scary thought, you know. I've been paranoid with the idea of eternity since forever, multiplied a thousand times since I saw the movie 'Tuck Everlasting' (where a certain family drinks from a spring from where magical water gushes out that makes you immortal). Really, being the thoughtful kid that I was, I had cooked up a very scary scenario about what might happen if I stick to a certain age forever. Not even Edward and Bella have been successful in changing that perspective. :P

Okay, I shouldn't go away from the topic. Especially as I have about 15 minutes to write this whole thing. (Admitted. I'm in the computer lab because a lousy metro train took double the time to reach my college station, apart from the horribly loong line at the check out, so that I was undoubtedly late and the class was locked. Yes, we're actually treated like criminals. Anyway, that's life).

O-K-A-Y, the age at which I'd like to be stuck, not forever, but for a certain time maybe. 25? Someone told me people look their best from 25-30 and I'd be old enough to be doing whatever I want, like crazy, mindless mountaineering. ;)

3. If you knew the world was ending in 2012, what would you do differently?
I'd leave college right in between and get out and do all those adventure sports I've been dying to do. Did you see that guy yesterday, Felix Baumgartner, who set a record for the highest freefall? He jumped from 1,27,000 something feet! You know, crazy stuff like that. Or maybe from a lesser height. That guy was right in the stratosphere and it looked incredibly lonely and high from up there. I'd probably chicken out.

4. If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be?
Considering what an ancient bloke person I am, I think I'd go way back in the past to the time when the first Olympics were held in Ancient Greece. This has nothing to do with the recent super-thriller I read, based on Olympics (Private Games by James Patterson). Okay, maybe it is, but still. I'm kind of obsessed with things that are hard to find in reality. ;)

5. If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?
Hermione! Totally. One, she's a witch, and a very smart one at that. Two, I admire her for her courage, wit and confidence. And oh! She has muggle parents, just like I have. :P

6. If you got a magic wand and could change only one thing, what would that be?
Isn't everything changing too much already? :| I would do something to stop the unpleasant changes, probably. Okay, being 'rational' and considering current circumstances, I'd change the education system of the world, not just my country. I mean, at least the institutions shouldn't produce machines, right? Help kids get a perspective. And oh, also that every single person in this world starts loving reading. ;)

7. If you could ask your future self one question what would it be?
"Did I do all that I had wanted to do?"
"Did I stand up to those who didn't believe in what I said?"
Oh, that's two questions. :P But I'd want to know if I will be able to stick to my own self and not get bogged down by others, which is something I actually try to do. :)

8. What is your most prized possession? Why?
Not one, but all books I have (fiction and interesting ones, strictly). I believe they're really powerful and not just fantasy stuff that takes you to a different plane. Sure, it does, but it also opens you up to a lot of things you could otherwise never know. 

9. What is the one thing you feel is most mis-understood?
The importance of work/career. People sometimes misunderstand work life as their whole life, which is in no way true. Why should we spend all our life just focusing and fretting over our 'career'? There's a lot more to life than just what you're doing for a living. 

10. One thing you would like to tell Me.
Here it is, right in the picture. :P

All in good humor, people!
I'm supposed to pass this on to a few bloggers too. Get ready, awesome people! (I'm not awarding this to those I've already presented with some award or the other.)

1. Anisha at Not Just My Allegories
2. Rinku at Mosaic
3. Sukku at Thoughts on Platter
4. Saloni at Onomatopoeia

There's no compulsion for you guys to make a separate post out of it. If you want to, I'd like you to answer the same questions I answered, asked by Privy Trifles. They're really interesting and I enjoyed thinking them up, half in the free time in the morning, some in a lab class and some at home. ;) Thank you so much! :)

    I thoroughly enjoyed knowing you and congratulations for this one.

    1. Thank you Privy for this one. :)
      I can only thank my luck, because of which I missed a class and ended up having free time (not exactly, as I could've done pending work, but who does pending work when they're apparently, free? ;))

    2. And... about that aspect of being stuck at 25 - well I kind of agree as you get to do things which you want coz people do start treating you as an adult finally!!

      About the looking good part - well I believe beauty is like wine, the older the better!!! :D

  6. I loved your answers ... specially No 9 ... so true :-)

    1. Glad that you feel the same. Thanks :)

  7. Hey honey thank u soooooo much. Even though I couldn't much figure out what the badge means like :P
    Can u take the pain n explain the significance of this award shward

    1. Of course! These awards are a way of appreciating other bloggers, those whom you like and wish to present some sort of an award. Just an award (you can put the above picture on display on your blog, on the sidebars or something) for a nice blog! :)

      Usually, it follows a chain, I got this award, I've to tell people who awarded and if there's some obligation, like the questions asked, I've to answer them and pass them on to other bloggers. However, I've not made it compulsory for you guys to create a separate post out of it (like I have), answer questions and passing them on, etc. You can just take the picture and how it off ;) Of course, if you'd want to answer the questions and pass it on to other bloggers, it'd be awesome, but it's not compulsory :)

  8. Congratulations Ashna!
    Loved reading your answers. :)
    Positive as always!!

    Love and hugs!


I would like to hear what you have to say.. :)
