  • Nice random facts XD I abuse emoticons, too, but I don’t really like the graphics one. I guess that’s one thing about me that’s old-fashioned, in that I prefer the text-based emoticons more over the graphics one!

    And dayum you do watch a lot of movies! What are some of your personal favourites you watched this year? I have a stack of movies to watch, but like all my hobbies, I have to be in the mood to do them!

    You’ve been hosting for over 10 years now! That’s pretty amazing, Kya! You’re awesome for keeping that up for so long ^^

    • Kya

      I really liked Mad Max! It is probably my favourite so far. :D

      MSN Emoticons were kind of the important thing of the day when I started online. But using old school ones is great too! (:

  • Thanks for nominating me! :) 15 blogs is soo many to think about, I might have a look through the bloglist for inspiration :)
    I get the motion sickness issue too! It’s so annoying, I can’t play most FPS because they make me want to throw up.

    • Kya

      It’s so annoying to feel sick when you are playing a game. Especially if you want to play it and you can’t. Some games I have no problem with at all, but others it’s a big no. :(

  • Wow that is a lot of movies! I love watching new movies, but I don’t quite make the time to watch that many lol. My husband and I have started working our way through the IMDB top 250 list. We’ve watched 50 of them in total (including ones we have previously seen) but it will probably take us like five years to finish, haha.

    • Kya

      That is a good idea to watch movies from that list. :D I will have to look at it and see how many I have seen!

  • Wow, I haven’t kept count of all the movies I saw, because I cheated by watching them more than once, depending on the movie :D

    • Kya

      You have to watch a good one more than once! :D I use the website letterboxd.com to track the ones I have watched. :D

  • I was probably more of a girl when I was younger, but I’m now somewhere in the middle… I think that while I was a teenager I dressed like a tomboy but I was into girly things. Now I dress like a ‘lady’ but I’m into less girly things? xD

    I thought I would be an author when I was younger, I didn’t think my blog would be such a huge writing focus. But I didn’t think I was good at design (I still don’t haha).

    I haven’t seen that many movies, but I am watching more this year than I have before. Nick and I usually watch movies at home. It’s something I never used to enjoy!

    I was nominated for the award, but you already read my post! ;) Here is a fun fact I did not write in it though: You’ve been hosting me since December 2008! Or January 2009. I cannot quite remember. :P

    I don’t know where I would fit in Hogwarts, I have only read the first Harry Potter book (~SHAME~) so I don’t know what all the houses are about. I did a quiz and I got Hufflepuff, which I think is what I got last time I did a quiz… xD

    • Kya

      Whaaaaaat. How could you think you were not good at design. This is blasphemy!

      Nah. I think you would be a Gryffindor. We might be rival houses (me in Slytherin) but I see you as a Gryffindor. ;D

  • I got tagged by two people to do this, but I’ve yet to put up my entry!

    I’ve always been a tomboy / girly girl mix. Even my style reflects that I guess? (Top, Mini Skirt, Doc Martens) I also hate wearing heels and I’m not big on shopping, but I love Disney Princesses and pink things.

    When I was younger, I wanted to be an illustrator / children’s book author / ballerina all at once.

    • Kya

      You would be an awesome children’s author and illustrator. :D

  • By the way, can I just add that it’s so cool you watched a lot of movies this year!

    I’m a movie junkie as well. :)

    • Kya

      That’s great! :D *high five*

  • Cat

    I was a tomboy when I was young too! I liked to play sports and video games with boys, and well, I still play video games :) That’s too bad that they give you motion sickness though. I know a few friends who have the same issue, so they can’t play for long periods of time.

    haha, I totally overuse emoticons, especially on Instagram. They’re just so fun! That’s also great that you’ve been hosting for so long, and wow, that’s a lot of movies! I have a long list of movies I’ve been meaning to watch. I wish I watched as many as you did!

    I’ve been tagged a few times for this award, but I haven’t put up my post yet. I’m working on it though!

    • Kya

      I can’t wait to see your post when you do it! :D

  • Thanks for the nomination!

    I think we both know I would be Slytherin (or if I couldn’t be Slytherin, Hufflepuff) – I’m nature’s natural sneaky coward XD

    • Kya

      Slytherin for life. ?

    • Kya

      That’s a shame. I didn’t realise that this happened to a number of people.

  • Thanks for the nomination, I’ve posted mine here: http://pawlean.com/2015/09/07/the-versatile-blogger-award/ :)

    Interesting facts, they let me get to know my lovely host better ;) I wear glasses and contacts 24/7! I used to get like sick from playing video games too but I really wanted to play more so I just let it go and got used to it! :P

    • Kya

      Thanks for sharing yours! :D

  • Chansoriya

    First of all, congrats Kya! I think you totally deserve this nomination and award. Your blog is inspiring and something I can only aspire to do right now. When I think top quality blogger it’s surely you!

    Now, I always get confused because reading with glasses is far-sighted right? I use glasses for everything but reading. I always get near and far sighted mixed up. x_x

    And ah, motion sickness in games, I know that feeling. It was Skyrim for me. I just couldn’t do it with the fluid control commands even on the lowest level of sensitivity, which was all a bummer because I was stoked to try Skyrim out.

    I love using emoji too! It’s hard not to spam some good ones at the friends. I refrain from using them in blogs to seem “professional,” but I’d totally have 100 more characters in a blog post if I went all out. :3

    //I can count to 10 in English, Spanish, Khmer, Thai, Korean, and Japanese?

    I… never got awards, I’m not social enough, haha.

    Also, I’m a Slytherin by Pottermore’s assortment, at first I was vexed about this because Aren’t I a Ravenclaw? Slowly I started to realize Slytherin was definitely for me and my personality. // What house are you?

    • Kya

      People can have different types of reasons for glasses. Some need them for distance and other for close up like reading. I don’t have a very strong prescription but it also rests my eyes a bit.

      Slytherin for me. :D

  • Your blog totally fits that description! New blogs to check out! Woot! :D (I overuse emojis too…) :P
