I received 4 book awards this week, and I'm happy to pass them on :) The First Award I was awarded twice. I received it from received was from: IanIan & Kari ! The Award I recieved was The Honest Scrap Award.

With This Award I'm Suppose to tell 10 honest things about myself, and then pass it on to 10 people.

1. I cannot tell left or right, so what I do is use my hands. My right hand has a birthmark on my thumb, and my left on doesn't. So that is how I tell left & right.

2. I suck at math, origami, and science. I just cannot do them, I've tried.

3. I hate smoking, alcohol and parties. I have never smoked, drink *to the point of being drunk*, and gone to a high school party.

4. I can speak Japanese, and a bit of German

5. I'm obsessed with baking!!! I love baking!!! I have even baked food at 4 in the morning.

6. I'm very good at remembering things, I can remember quotes from every book, movie and play I have seen or read.

I'm very shy and have the hardest time talking to people.

8. I have a bit of a trust issue, and sometimes have a hard time trusting people.

9. I'm more of a homebody, then someone who is on the go all the time. I rather hang out with my mother and other adults, then people my own age.

10. I'm going to a new school in a week :) :(

Congratulations on all your awards. I love following your blog and leaving comments. I already have the Humane Award so I hope you don't mind that I don't pass it on again. But thanks very much for giving it to me again because I just love the sentiment behind it.

brizmus said...

Oh yay! Thanks for the award! :-) And I so know what you mean about the right from left thing. I've broken my right arm so many times that it always seems to have a sort of dull ache. So I tell right from left by thinking about which arm hurts the most. :-)
