One of those awards / 7 facts about me

The Dutch word for “happy birthday” is “gefeliciteerd”.
Try to pronounce that πŸ˜‰

The actual translation of “Gefeliciteerd” is “Congratulations” .
So that’s what people, to my great annoyance” would say on someone’s birthday in English.

Whut? It’s not like they achieved anything.

The same I feel about these circulating awards.
People put a huge amount of effort to write one of those. And other’s would dump a “Congratulations” in the comments and leave.
That’s not really fair, is it?

That’s why I never really participated in one.
And also, the placing the picture and these rules annoy me.
Also, I don’t want to put pressure on anyone by nominating them.

HOWEVER, this time I was nominated by Floating Gold., which I only discovered recently.
I don’t want to be an ass kisser, but this is really a must read blog.
It’s only of those that makes you feel frustrated if they don’t post for a day.

Anyhow! I was asked to place 7 facts about me.
Here we go:

  1. I am a vegetarian.
    But not for hipster reasons. It’s more based on a childhood trauma which made me never want to eat meat again since the age of 9.
  2. I named one of my fish after an electrical component.
    This is to remind myself of my roots. I feel like I am growing into a manager’s position which has never ever been my aim.
  3. Most my blogs I write in less than 15 minutes.
    I guess feel embarrassed to read them again, so there are usually quite some spelling/grammar mistakes. I apologize for those.
  4. I have an identity issue.
    The place I was born, spent my childhood and started my adulthood are not the same.
  5. I am not rich, but I do believe I am financially more comfortable than other people my age.
    And no, this is not due to rich parents.
  6. I don’t like summer at all.
  7. I have dyed my hair many colors (not extreme colors).
    I still don’t which one I like the most.

So, I am not going to nominate anyone specifically, but please do feel free to share your facts about yourself. Or just one or two in the comments.

And don’t forget to not congratulate me πŸ˜‰

    1. Very good πŸ˜‰

      My fish’ name is: IGBT.
      And no, I am not necessarily supporting any specific community.
      It stands for “Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor”, which is basically a very fast switch πŸ˜€

  2. I keep getting nominated and haven’t had time to sit down and do them. It’s an honor I guess although I still wonder if they are actually real! And β€œcongrats”. Lol, I have enjoyed getting to know you!


  3. I do hate the simple “congratulations” comments! Lol. I was actually gonna tag you in an award exactly like this but I’ll let ya off the hook since you just did this one! πŸ˜‚ I can’t believe you’re able to write a blog post in 15m or less. That’s awesome! Loved learning more about you! β™‘

    1. Haha, I can’t handle too many of these awards.
      However, I do enjoy reading them from others. I am always curious if the person writing would answer the questions like I would πŸ˜€

  4. Happy Award Day? πŸ˜‚

    I stopped eating chicken for several years, around the same age as you were, when, half-way through a meal, my dad announced we were eating a rooster I helped raise from a chick. I should’ve expected this, considering I helped pluck his feathers when he turned out to be the worst of our two roosters but it was sickening. I’m curious about what happened to you but I imagine you’d tell if you wanted to.

    Great post. And I’m impressed you write any of them in 15 minutes!

    1. Oh no, that is terrible!
      My mum used to live on a farm and she told me stories like yours. That is part of my reason.
      We also used live near slaughter house. The smell, the screams of the animals, it was just too much for me.

      I should mention, btw, that I manage the 15 minutes are without distraction πŸ˜‰

  5. I don’t mind being nominated but never can figure how to repost the award thing on my page. I like your blog. It’s cool people take notice. I am also a Vegetarian, pretty much. Although, I do eat fish and rarely; chicken.
