It's Raining Awards # 1!

Right back to the time a few months ago when this blog was going through a 'receiving-kindness' spree and getting blogger awards from some super nice bloggers, there were three awards I did not talk about. Abinaya, the super sweet blogger over at 'A Blog to Remember' showered three wonderful awards! Thank you Abinaya! :D

The first one is...... The POSITIVE BLOG award! 

Head over here to read why she selected this blog for this award! It's quite flattering, you know ;) I would have shared that here itself had it not been for the risk of sounding self-obsessed! :P 
Anyway, part of accepting this glorious award is answering some interesting questions! Here we go:

#1: Which post that you have written on your blog is your most favorite of all and why?
Hehe. I love a lot of my posts. No, I'm not a narc, I just enjoy writing stuff and so I like them. If I had to choose, I'd choose "Poetic Realization" not because it's a good one, but because it's funny and totally real. :D I'll cheat a bit here and add another post. It's titled "Born to Climb" and is an imaginative story where I'm mountaineering (mixed with rock climbing. Weird, but that's how I am. :P)
#2: Which post that I have written on my blog is your favorite and why?
Again, I like your whole blog! :D But if I have to select one post, that would be "Small things in life that I love", because there are a lot of things in that list I love too! And it tells me so much more about you. :)

#3: How would you define love, hope, faith and life in a sentence?
Essentials for a happy and contented life.

#4: What is that one thing that you cannot tolerate in a person?
Unkindness. Whatever, whoever you are, you never hurt anyone else. I loathe people who don't mind hurting others, who feel it's "okay" to do things that would make someone else miserable. Just stick to your own life!

#5: What defines YOU in one word?
Confused. :P

I'm not hugely opinionated. I like most things without reasons, just because they exist and make me feel good. So when those with a either-this-or-that attitude come up and talk about what is good/bad, right/wrong, that's what I get. Confused.

#6: If we were to meet somewhere out of the blue, what would you say to me? How would you identify me, if you had to approach me and confirm that it is AaeKay indeed!?
I know how you look like. :D If I saw you out of the blue, I might get super excited and come up to you, wiggle my eyebrows and say, "Recognize me?" I hope that wouldn't creep you out so much that you'd run away, so we would just stand there at least in the first few minutes exchanging pleasantries and then you'd ask if we could find a place to sit (because such things never occur to me). We'd probably talk about blogging and then move on to personal topics! How is that?

#7: Do you believe that people are allowed to break your heart in a relationship? (I know we trust them not to.)
Well no, they're not. It also depends on what does break your heart.  After all, everyone has their own life, in the end. There should be adequate space and understanding for letting the other do what they believe in. But breaking hearts deliberately? Super no.

#8: What is one thing that you love about yourself? 
Optimism. Sometimes it borders on insanity, but that's okay. I don't know how I would even breathe normally everyday if I don't think positively. Yes, negatives do bring me down, I do get upset with a lot of things pretty soon and then over-think. But with books, music and some friends, I'm back to optimism. It's almost natural and I'm super glad about it. :D

 #9: How productive are you? What do you follow in order to be productive? (This is because I'm trying hard to become productive; not working!)
My productivity hugely depends on the environment. It is not right, but that's what it is. Example, in my undergrad college, I relatively did a lot many things, in a short amount of time and I think I did them okay (if not well!). I loved that college and I was constantly happy in that environment (might not have shown on my face, but I was :P ). Now that I don't enjoy the new college too much and people bring me down, I haven't done much as far as being productive goes.

Though I definitely can work effectively when I'm concentrating enough! If there's important work to be done, switch off the internet and then do it. If you need the internet, log out of Facebook and then work. You won't believe how fast this would make you work! I guess my assignments would never get completed on time if I have Facebook open. Seriously!

#10: How did you come across my blog and what was your first thought about my blog and me?
I came across your blog through Preeti Shenoy's Tea for Two and a Piece of Cake prompts! Of course I liked your blog and your ideas. I saw our answers to the prompts were quite similar and reading your other posts I thought you're someone who has got clear ideas in her head! I mean, I have always loved how you talk about little things that matter, and talk openly without inhibitions. I truly admire that. :D

I'll forward the Positive Blog Award to:

- Aneesha at "Footprints: colorful Impressions". She's my friend and she deserves it. 
- Priyaa at "Happy Moments, well.. mostly". She's a chirpy young, forever smiling friend! 
- Preetika at "Waking Moments". How can anyone so cute not deserve an award? Her writing style would never fail to make you smile. :)
- Srishti at "Life... as it is". Her posts are becoming awesomer day by day. Her optimism shows so clearly! 
- Privy Trifles at "Memoirs of Me". Maybe her posts are all not humorous, but they definitely induce an energy in me. Her thoughts and way of expressing them: incredible!

(Guys, I'll email you the award picture, so you can use it!)

The second award bestowed on this blog is the LIEBSTER AWARD, again from 'A Blog to Remember'! I'm not required to answer questions for this one.

The third award is also a LIEBSTER AWARD (oh my god, so much of love! ^_^) My answers to the questions for this one are:

1. Why did you start blogging?
Don't remember! I started it off as a personal diary of sorts. I didn't know the full extent of blogging, or the potential. I don't think I still do, because I still don't venture into experimental stuff, wanting to keep the blog as close and personal to me as possible, with as little foreign elements. Well, if you haven't figured it out yet, I'm much too fond of this blog! Always have been. :D
2. You are getting an all expenses paid trip for two to a place of your choice. Where will it be and with whom?
That hugely depends on whether or not I'm allowed. (Told you, being a girl in my country sucks sometimes). Anyway, considering there are no restrictions, maybe Vienna or Venice with one of my best friends! ^_^

3. Dog or cat? And why?
Neither! I like animals, but only from a distance. 

4. Half a million dollars for slogging six months a year or a week's peace on the beaches of Bahamas? 
A week's peace anytime. Much more precious and healthy than money. ;)

5. What is your deepest fear? 
Not having enough love to satisfy me. I'm someone who literally survives on love. It's much too important to me. Being forgotten, not being loved by family/friends is unthinkable! *shuddering*

6. How did you propose to your guy/girl or how do you plan to do so?
No experience and no plans. :P

7. One 'Ctrl+Z' moment of your life? Something you would undo if you had a choice?  
Maybe get enough clarification in my head about what I want to do in my life, career wise, so that I could have avoided this present college where sometimes I feel like I'm being wasted. Not that I hate all of it, I am glad for a couple of good friends, but the first year was definitely a muddle of emotions and decisions which left me more confused in life than ever!

8. Who is the most marriageable celebrity? 
Theo James ^_^
I don't know about marriageable, but drool-worthy is Theo James! The guy selected for the lead character role, Tobias a.k.a Four in the Divergent movie. Look for yourself! (Preetika is either going to drool right now, or kill me for taking this name :P )   

9. One thing that can take you to ultimate heights of fame?
Being awesome at what you like doing? If I can't be famous for reading, then it would be writing. (Does anyone think it can be true?) But also hard work! Which I don't do :( 

10. Do you follow any sports, team, club or person? Why did this love start?
I'm a boring person, I'm not much into sports or teams or clubs, and I stay away from hyped-about things. Books and authors are an exception, though. I follow J.K. Rowling mainly because I love her story. It's tragic, but I love how it inspired her work, how she feels about it and how I feel tingly and awed each time I hear/read it. Otherwise I do follow fandoms and stuff on Facebook for the books I've loved. 

11. Did you like coming to this blog? And will you come again?
Yes yes, I do! I've been coming since forever and will come till after the end too! I love it! :D   

Thanks so much AaeKay/ Abinaya for these awards. You're generous and awesome! Come back soon from your vacation (which I'm hoping you're enjoying to the fullest) ! ^_^ 

PS- I've got more awards. Will make a "It's Raining Awards" part 2 soon. :)



  1. Oh wow, this is a wonderful post. Radiating energy and positivity(which all your posts do, yes. but this one a little more ;)) and excitement(wait, did I say that already, energy:excitement .... oh heck, anyhow)

    Loved the questions and the answers. And talking of answers, though I loved all of them, I am going to copy paste the ninth one(about productivity) if someone asks me sometime, because it's exactly what I would say, word-to-word, so I'd ask you to not count that as plagiarism ;) :P

    Oh yeah, forgot, Congratulation for so many awards Ms Banga. Totally deserving, you are. :D
    I am going to wait and err... wait for the second part. :)

  2. Finally I am able to comment on your post! -_-

    Your answers...totally refreshing. It's always fun to read them, more so because of the similarity (don't I say this every time? :D)

    Congratulation for the monsoon on your blog! :D Seems I did no wrong in being lazy for forwarding the any award to you (I didn't, to anyone) :P
    And Thankyouuu so very much for the award. ^_^. Have been called an optimist after quite long. :D And this one definitely calls for a tiny celebration. :D
