One Lovely Blog Award 2

7 things about me:

  1. I have a phobia of balloons. I’ve had that since I was 6/7.
  2. I love spicy foods.
  3. I’m in my final year of my English undergrad. Can’t believe I’m almost finished with it.
  4. One of my favourite authors is Dickens.
  5. I like to watch nature documentaries especially Blue Planet. (Currently I’m watching Dynasties and it’s been fab so far!)
  6. I’ve been listening to a lot of Paloma Faith recently. She’s brilliant!
  7. I have a small scar on my foot from when I accidentally stood on a shard of glass.




  1. Thanks, Keiko!
    Do you have any idea why do you fear balloons? Seems like not the most common of phobias. By the way, there was one particular horror story by Junji Ito and balloons. Beware of that, just in case.
    Good luck with the final steps of your studies!

    • Anytime!
      Not really. I distinctly remember how it started but not how that led to my fear. I have tried to overcome it but nightmares and breaking down crying is just no fun.
      Yeah it’s not the most common phobia :’) Oh thanks for the warning. I’ll avoid that!
      Thank you! 😊

  2. Thanks for tagging me Keiko! ❤ I miss watching nature documentaries so much! Where do you normally watch them? I've been wanting to come back to them, but didn't find a good place to watch it 😦

  3. Thanks for the nomination. I’ve done one of these awards before so I’ll try and think of some good facts for you instead…sorry if these are repeats of ones you’ve seen before, though.

    1. I don’t think I had it for my entire life, but I do have a fear of heights – not a particularly severe one since I’m fine on planes and stuff where there’s a floor that isn’t glass, but put me into a confined space high in the air, then let a draught in and I’ll start to panic nonetheless…

    2. I can cite the tongue-twister that starts with “How much wood could a woodchuck chuck…” from memory. It does help that it was once a homework task a long time ago, but it seems like a pointless skill to have in retrospect…

    3. I don’t think I’ve ever had a favourite author. If a book is good, I’ll read it…at least, that was the rule before I started focussing on manga and anime instead.

    4. I once entered a competition for tickets to a Coldplay concert (this was a few years before I actually did get to see them in concert) and although I didn’t win, I did get all their albums they’d put out up to that time. I didn’t think I’d win anything from it though…

    5. I’m neither a cat person nor a dog person, because I like both animals equally. Throw something like a bird or rabbit into the equation though and I’ll pick the 3rd option.

    6. I once spotted a stray rabbit out in the yard (he was a black rabbit out at night, so people didn’t believe me at first) and he’s basically been the household pet at my place for a few years now.

    7. I’ve been told by the optometrist my vision is almost 20-20. This is why I’ve refused getting glasses, even though my dad’s been bugging me to get some (because of his health insurance) for years.

    • Anytime! 😊 Same, I have this odd fear of heights as well that only kicks in at certain times.
      I’m so jealous of your eyesight! 😮 I can’t see a thing without my glasses!

  4. I love Dynasties! So glad to see another fan 😀 I also strangely have a scar on my foot from accidentally cutting it on a piece of glass 😲 😂 My scar is on the inside of my left foot (^^,) Thanks for the nomination! I

  5. Thanks so much for the nomination! You have no idea how much it means to me. Unfortunately, I haven’t even kept track how much I’ve gotten over the years so idk if I am even eligible to do it anymore. Or if there’s even limitations. Also I don’t think I am in the mood to do anything like this at the moment. Thanks again, Keiko!
