I was recently nominated by petrel41 from the blog Dear Kitty. Some blog for the Real Neat Blog Award. I accept the award and would to thank petrel41 for this wonderful award and for taking the time to read my blog. It’s all very much appreciated. 🙂 Make sure to check out their blog too which is wonderful.
In accepting the award seven questions were put forward to answer which I have done so below:
1. Where do most visits to your blog come from?
Most views come from the United States but I also get a lot of visits from the United Kingdom as well.
2. What is your favourite sport?
My three favourite sports are football, tennis and hockey. I always grew up supporting Liverpool from when I was 3 and I used to play tennis with my sister a lot when I was younger on the tennis court in Oldcastle which was where I grew up. I also used to enjoy playing hockey in school. But all in all I watch a lot of sport but I don’t really play sports. The fitness tests in school I found a nightmare.
3. What has been a special moment for you so far in 2017?
I was very proud of my article being featured on the Bi+ Ireland website. Being both pansexual and Irish, it was nice to be featured. We still live in a time where many people who fall in the middle of the sexuality spectrum face a lot of prejudice from both straight and gay people so it was an honour to be part of a project where I could be so open as an Irish pansexual person and so many other Irish bi+ people could be too. It made me feel less alone.
4. What is your favourite quote?
5. What was your favourite class when still at school?
I adore writing and literature so English was my favourite. But I find in schools, writing and literature is made quite uninteresting. Maybe that’s why so many people think it is boring. But despite all that I love any opportunity to read and write pieces. I also loved history as it was mini stories of non-fiction and I had a teacher who made it feel like a continuing story. And I also liked CSPE as it was all about social issues and politics. We only were able to do it up to Junior Cert and it’s the only A I ever got between the Junior and Leaving Certificates which probably says a lot about how passionate I am about equality. My mum was absolutely chuffed with the A.
6. Anything you had wished to have learned earlier?
I think to worry less about the future. When I was younger, I didn’t know where I was going in life. I still don’t but I don’t worry about it as much anymore. Everything tends to work out in the end not too badly.
7. What musical instrument have you tried to play?
I would love to be able to play a musical instrument. I’ve tried unsuccessfully to play guitar, drums and keyboard. I’m not giving up but I don’t think my mind is wired to play musical instruments. I have a lot of respect for musicians. They make it look so easy and it really isn’t.
