Versatile Blogger Award

Hello everyone! I was nominated by Jackie of the Vibrant Dreamer for the Versatile Blogger Award (read her post here). I haven’t been tagged in a while, so I was excited to see this. Right before I was about to upload this post, I was also tagged by Geraldine from Geraldine Talks (see her Versatile Blogger post here). Since I was nominated for both in a short time period, I thought I would combine both nominations into one post. Thank you Jackie and Geraldine!

Award Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Link to the blog of the person who nominated you.
  • Share 7 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 15 more bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.

7 Facts About Me

1. I’m sure you’ve heard that I’m an Aquarius if you’ve been following me for a while. I LOVE astrology, so I’m currently trying to learn more about it! While Aquarius is my sun sign, my moon is Sagittarius and my rising is Libra.

2. I feel like I’m always SUPER obsessed with one artist/band. Right now it’s Halsey (what a shocker), but in the past I’ve been crazy about The Pretty Reckless, Taylor Swift, and Avril Lavigne. Once you’re an artist on this list, chances are I’m probably buying your music forever.

3. I think I started writing poetry when I was in elementary school. Some were in a song type of format and weren’t very good, but that’s how I dealt with any issues I was having. I also wrote a lot in high school because I had a difficult time, and now I’ve recently gotten back into it. I feel like I do tend to write more inspirational poems nowadays than before!

4. If I had to get another pet right now, I would get a guinea pig. I’m in the process of sorting my life out and don’t have the money to get one at the moment, so, surprise, this isn’t happening anytime soon. I had a guinea pig when I was younger, and he was so cute.

5. I’m definitely more of a night owl than a morning person. My mom is one as well, and my grandma was too. I probably learned this trait from them. If there’s something exciting (or I have work/responsibilities), I’ll get up, but chances are I didn’t go to bed at a decent hour.

6. I bought an oracle deck not too long ago, and I’ve been loving it! I’m terrible at readings still, but I try to pull a daily card whenever I can. Plus, my deck is animal themed, so I’m honestly just excited to see which animal I’ll draw for the day.

7. Somehow, I’m fairly clumsy, but I’m also athletic. To be honest I don’t know how these traits coexist with each other but they do. I’ll go score some goals in a game, and then trip outside of Starbucks the same day. It’s pretty great.

    We had guinea pigs in my 1st and 2nd grade classrooms when I was younger – one had babies during that time. They are pretty cute!

    Thanks for the nomination!

    Loved reading this and getting to know more about you haha! I don’t think I’m a morning person either. I cannot be counted on to wake up early in the morning, but at the same time I don’t know if I could call myself a night owl either? Does staying up past 11 count? 😂 Guinea pigs are so cute! Thank you for sharing Melissa 😁

      Yeah, it’s hard to wake up early, but sometimes I have to get up around 4am to go to tournaments and it’s terrible. 🙈 And sure haha, I know people who go to sleep long before 11. Yess I love guinea pigs! ☺️ Thanks for reading!

    I loved reading your facts! I feel the same way as you when it comes to music. If I find someone I really like, that’s it, I’ll be loyal to them forever. Also, I feel like I’ve switched from being a night owl to being a morning person over the past few years, but those night owl traits still pop up sometimes 😉

      That’s really cool! I feel like you learn about artists a lot through their music (and connect the music to your own experiences), so I definitely become loyal to them. I think I’ve calmed down a little over the years with staying up late, but I think it would be easy to still have late nights pop up occasionally even if you’ve become more of a morning person. Thanks for reading! ☺️

    Thanks for the nomination! 🙂 I’m not all that into astrology but I do know I’m a Gemini. Do you have any good resources for astrology that you use?

      You’re welcome! And nice, a fellow air sign! I feel like I go to a lot of different places for astrology info-sometimes I just search it on the web/YouTube. I purchased a book on my Kindle called ‘Healing Signs: The Astrological Guide to Wholeness and Well-Being’ by Ronnie Gale Dreyer that was interesting to look through (although I’m not sure I cared as much about the ailments for each sign). I know Kalyn Nicholson (a YouTuber) usually uploads some astrology-themed videos (w/ info, tarot readings, inspired outfits, etc) that I enjoy watching.

    Ooh I am DEFINITELY a night owl too! It’s literally 1am hahah. I LOVE astrology too, I mean we’ve talked about this before but I always want to talk about it. Libra is such a cool rising sign to have!! I’m a Taurus rising! Both ruled by Venus!!

    I also use poetry to deal with whatever I’m feeling! Not so much now as when I was in middle/high school but I miss it a lot. It seemed to come easier when I was sad a lot, which was during those times.

    And guinea pigs are super cute! They aren’t for me but I can appreciate their adorableness!!

    Thanks for sharing!

      Nice, I love meeting other night owls! I was pretty excited to find out my rising is a Libra; that’s really cool that yours is Taurus!
      Poetry comes a lot easier for me when I’m sad too; then I can either carry those emotions into a poem or write a more motivational one (probably still with some darker aspects though) to help me feel better.
      Yes guinea pigs are adorable! I also don’t know how my cat and dog would react if I got one lol.
