A few days ago I received a lovely surprise in the mail: a gift from Finland!
In fact I had won a giveaway at Thrifty Finn, a very nice blog hosted by an awesome blogger, and I had totally forgotten about it! Anyway, here’s what I got:
Awesome cute stuff!!! 🙂 Thank you so much, Niina!

First, I’d like to say Happy International Women’s Day – belated, I know – to all women who are standing up in their life for their rights right in the 21st century. 🙂
And then, I bet you are wondering what’s that title, well, I won’t beat about the bush, so An Evil Nymph’s Blog has been receiving blog awards since I last posted about them at the end of January. Thus since the beginning of February, awards have accumulated in my bookmark, constantly urging me everyday to put them out in a post, and today… is finally the day!

December has already started but it’s only today that I finally got the time to sit down and write the first December post! Since NaNoWriMo is over, I’ve been enjoying myself a lot hehe, and thus taking a little break from my novel. I’ll start the editing maybe next week 🙂
To begin, I’d like to thank every blogger who has been giving me awards this month!
Thanks to you,
Book To The Future for nominating me for the Gargie Award and the Liebster Award!

Gratitude is something that everyone should practice on a daily basis. It makes us realise that there are so many things in life that we have, that we love. And that’s a great way to start the day, with a good mood, by thinking of all the things we have instead of complaining about all the things we don’t have. What do you think?

Have any of you noticed that I missed the Sites Of The Month: October 2012? Usually, at the end of each month I do a sharing-only post where I link every web pages and websites that caught my attention during the month, so that perhaps some of you may find them helpful. But this end of October and beginning of November have been a storm of events for me, and I’m sorry if ever you were waiting for it.
In the last Sites Of The Month posts, I have developed a habit of listing all the blog awards I receive during the month and then instead of following the rules exactly, like the 7 random facts about me I have to list, I change it by giving away a lot of facts about me, yet through my monthly list of favourite links! That’s how I started to merge the ‘Sites of the month’ thing with the listing of blog awards.
And that’s exactly what I’m going to do today.
I feel that it’s important to stop in your tracks for a while, and be grateful for what you received, what you gained along the journey, although you have not completed it yet, and also share it to the world.
So today, I thank:
1. Seasons of Insanity who awarded me with the Reader Appreciation Award:

Keep running, keep rolling! Here we are at the 1st edition of The Tag Blogathon at An Evil Nymph’s Blog! A special thank you to ABC of Spirit Talk who tagged me in.
(unfortunately the tag didn’t come with a picture, so I had to google one…:)
Here are the rules attached to it:
1. Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.
2. They must also answer the 11 questions the ‘tagger’ has set for them.
3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
4. They must then choose 11 bloggers and tag them in their post.
5. These lucky bloggers must then be told.
6. There are no tag backs.

This week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post is Happy. And here’s my interpretation. Enjoy!
A few days earlier, I realised that I was being too self-centred. I mainly thought of only myself, buying stuff for myself, taking care of myself… All right, I know it’s good. It’s recommended, as at least we know that we are not depressed and want to end our lives, but then, it has a purpose. Yes, being self-centred for a while actually helps us to realise one main thing:

Hey if you didn’t notice it on the right sidebar…
Indeed! I won the August Camp NaNoWriMo, made it to 50,000+ words since the 29th. Yeah! And today is the very last day to update your word count and win! Don’t be discouraged if you’re not done yet, just keep on writing 🙂 And who knows, you might be printing your winner certificate tonight. (I did yesterday – if you want to see it, check it out on An Evil Nymph’s facebook page here!)
I’ll give you the details of my experience in a later post.
For now, let’s move on to the traditional ‘Sites of the Month’ monthly series, in which I share some useful or inspiring links that I discovered this month, hoping that it’ll be worth for you to check out 🙂

Why should I thank you? Because of the awesome blog awards I received and of all the love you’re giving and sharing with me! Blogging forms a whole worldwide community and I’m so glad to be in it with you all.
That’s why I can’t thank you enough.
First of all I am proud to announce that I’ve won a free e-book, Jazz by Cristian Mihai through a facebook giveaway. Thank you!
I haven’t found the proper time to read it yet, but I will soon!

Giving a hand is at no cost.
Giving a hand is to gain trust and maybe a new friend.

This month has been very heavy… well it’s only the beginning of my journey to my A-levels. :S
Sometimes I just feel like I’m out of control – just when I’m starting to get organised! – and I just want to give it all up. But when you have awesome friends that can make you laugh for a whole day, you’ll just have to remember these short moments and your smile will last longer than you think despite everything else 🙂
