It Turns out I’m Not Rambling to Dead Space…

Posted on the 20 March 2017 by Altea Addison @AlteaAddison

I’m just a girl, standing in front of the internet, asking it to love her.

Okay, I’ll admit it – I’m not the first person to use that line. It originates from the movie Notting Hill, which stars Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts. Grant plays a simple bookshop owner. His entire world changes when he meets Roberts’ character, the most famous film star in the world. As you would expect from a romantic comedy, the two of them fall in love and then fall prey to a veritable cornucopia of misunderstandings. The line I paraphrased at the top of this post is delivered by Roberts, and it actually goes like this: “I’m also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.” She says this in reply to Grant when he lists all the reasons they shouldn’t be together, one of those reasons being that she’s the world’s most beloved actress and everyone knows her while his own mother has trouble remembering his name.  

Now that I’ve sorted out who said what and why, I think it’s about time for me to get to the point of this blog post. The point is that I’m just a blogger, sharing her experiences on this journey called life, wishing and hoping that someone will enjoy reading her posts. A couple of days ago, my wish was granted. Petrel from Dear Kitty Some Blog nominated me for the Real Neat Blog Award.  

Late in 2014, Petrel created this award.  Why? Because Petrel believes there are many bloggers whose blogs deserve attention. Petrel is determined to do something about that. Thank you, Petrel!

It turns out I’m not rambling to dead space…

Accepting the nomination, which I do with equal parts gratitude and pride, includes answering seven questions. So, here goes…

Question 1: Where do most visits to your blog come from?

I’ve had visitors from across the globe, from America to Zimbabwe. Typically, most of my visitors are from the States and the United Kingdom.

Question 2: What is your favorite sport?

Formula One. My favorite driver, Nico Rosberg, retired last year after winning the championship. Now, I’m not sure who I’m going to root for. I’ve always been fond of Perez and this year he’s taking to the track in a pink car. Seriously. It’s pink. I’m not kidding. You can see it with your own eyes here: Force India Unveil Pink Car.

Question 3: What has been a special moment for you so far in 2017?

Being nominated for this award is something special. It means that I’m not just rambling to dead space. Some of you out there in the virtual world are reading my words and appreciating them. Thank you! 

Question 4: What is your favorite quote?

My favorite phrase is, “All’s well that ends well.” You can read why here.

Question 5: What was your favorite class when still at school?

English Literature. That doesn’t come as a surprise, does it? As a child, books were my best friends.  

Question 6: Anything you had wished to have learned earlier?

I wish I’d learned at an earlier age that regrets are a waste of time. You can read more about that here.

Question 7: What musical instrument have you tried to play?

The piano. It was a short-lived attempt.

That’s all from me for now. I want to thank Petrel again for nominating me for the Real Neat Blog Award. And I wish all of you a happy Monday!
