7 things about me | The VBA Part 3

So this is me jumping through the final hoop of the Versatile Blogger Award, according to which I am supposed to “tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself”. Katey, since this one’s for you, I am responding to a couple of things you said about yourself in your post:

  1. I cannot keep things short, which you probably have figured out by now, watching me turn this VBA thing into a three post series.
  2. I, too, love to travel, which I am doing right now. Your home country New Zealand is actually up next after Oz.
  3. I have been blogging on and off since I was 18. I used to delete my old blogs, though, when I started over. Don’t feel the need to erase the past anymore, although I don’t feel the need to relive it, either. I think it’s good that it is where it is. In my life but, well, in the past.
  4. I know the feeling of being in situations that require you to be more social than you feel comfortably with. For me it really depends on the situation and the people. I think I am naturally best at expressing myself in writing. When it comes to talking, it’s easier for me when I only have one person in front of me. For me realizing that what we all want most is being seen was really a helpful epiphany. Because suddenly I realized that not all situations require me to be that extrovert I thought I should be. They mostly require me to do what I am good at and more comfortable with anyway: listen to the person in front of me.
  5. I totally get the love/hate relationship when it comes to technology, especially social media. I’ve come to realize that how I use it makes all the difference. I have come to terms with the fact that I have different phases: sometimes I am more interested in producing content rather than reading what others have to say. Sometimes, when I do want inspiration, I find it there. Then there’s that tricky stage where I am about to dive into something new but seeing other people doing their thing just makes me envious. I have come to appreciate that envy, because I believe it’s pointing me to what I would like to do but am denying myself. Right now I am discovering the aspect of using social media to actually connect with others. Curious to see where that will lead … I thought this was pretty cool, seeing what an effect you had on me with your nomination, even though we’ve never met.  Thanks for reaching out!
  6. I love homemade ice-cream so much that I find it worth mentioning on here. I love peanut butter just as much. I am in this small town right now where the organic food store actually has peanut butter ice-cream that they seem to be making themselves!
  7. I am going to count number 6 as two items, just so that I can wrap this up now and go get some of that ice-cream before I start packing my stuff to go to Melbourne tomorrow. Oops, I guess there’s my number 7: this is a scheduled post, which I normally don’t like. But sometimes we just have to succumb to the reality of things, right? That it’s probably a little over-kill to post three blogs on this VBA thing in one day.

  1. I definitely find it easier to express myself through writing than I do through talking. Where are you planning on going in NZ? Are you going to travel around the country or stay in one place? It is beautiful here (especially Coromandel and Bay of Island – my two favourite places in the North Island). That peanut butter ice cream sounds so, so good. Peanut butter is one of my weaknesses. Enjoy your time in Melbourne. It’s been a while since I was there, but I enjoyed the city! :) You’ve done such a good job with this blog, which is why I chose you for this award! Your writing is fab, and you’ve written three amazing posts for this award :)

    1. I am going to NZ next week, on 4 Dec. Dunno yet how much traveling I’ll be doing, I am going to a friend near Hastings/Napier first. Thx so much for the tips, Katey! Where is home for you? That ice cream was as good as it sounds, hehe. Awww, thx for all the praise, you’re making me blush. :-*
