About Awards and Random Ritika

By Saturday, February 21, 2015

I was tagged for a Liebster award by Roshan of GodYears and Parul of HappinessAndFood
atleast 6 months ago and me being the lazy me kept dodging it every week. Today I am finally getting down with it and writing the ever so late post.

Basically when you get tagged to do it, you have to jot down 11 facts about yourself and answer some questions asked by the fellow bloggers who tagged you and then tag 5 other people to do it.

(To be honest, I didn't do this post till now because I got scared by the questions :| )

Parul's Question -  just tell me once story of your life that has made you who you are or has changed you in some way

Probably my grandparents's death.

Roshan's line up of questions -

1. What was the best moment of your life till date?
Gazing at the Pangong Tso Lake

2. If not 'your present job', what would you see yourself doing in life?
Something in retail or may be just writing

3. Who was your first celebrity crush?
Enrique Iglesias :D

4.  The best friend you have made in the blogosphere?

None actually

5.  I'm giving you a million dollars. How are you going to spend it?

Travel, travel and more travel

6. Your best feature?

I don't let anything faze me that quickly

7. Show us a photo you possess on your computer/mobile that you just love?

Kanyakumari '14

8. Two books you would recommend to everyone?
Veronica decides to die by Paulo Coelho and Don't Stress the small stuff

9. Favourite food dishes?

Kadi Chawal,   handsdown

10. A celebrity you feel is highly underrated and deserves more credit (and why)?

Can't actually think of anyone

11. Share some insightful advice you have learned NOT FROM BOOKS but from the crazy journey of life?
Life is always going to be crazy...you just need the right kind of people to make it more bearable

11 Random Facts about me -

  • I can't manage money
  • I go to McDonalds and order the same thing every single time
  • I feel there is a parallel dimension where all the Game of Thrones characters come to life
  • For me, Food=Life and Life=food
  • I still can't drive but since I live in Bombay now, I blame it all on the traffic
  • I feel like I am the most disinteresting person ever, but I dont let anybody know that
  • I am still addicted to Keeping Up with the Kardashians
  • I have a playlist in my phone called 'Masala' which has all teh dhinchak bollywood songs in it
  • I wear a 20 year old watch which belonged to my grandfather and I just refuse to buy a new one ( I want to buy a new one but I just cannot find a watch which is as good as the one I have right now)
  • I will never ever have enough clothes in life. NEVER
  • I can;t post anything until I get the correct title for that article
  • I use bullet points instead of numbers so that I can get away with writing less. Itne paise mein itna hi milega :P

To end this post, I am tagging 11 other bloggers who I completely adore

My question - What is the one thing you have learned from blogging ?

Hope you have a great weekend
