Woop woop! I was nominated for the first time by socialworkerangela from the blog I am my own island. She was nominated for two awards and I could pick either one, so I chose this one because, obviously, there’s an animal in it 🙂

Here are Angela’s questions and the answers I came up with:
What is your motivation to blog?
I like to share information, for example about disabilities, so that others can learn from it and we all become more understanding and kind to each other. And from the responses and blogposts others write, I can learn things in return 🙂 I also like the contact with other people, but I’m not very good in my (talking) social skills 😉 I’m better in writing what I think/feel than talking and with my disabilities (such as the fatigue) it’s hard to be very social “in real life”.
Who helped make you who you are?
My partner (my fellow Hippo) helped and still is helping to bring out the good in me. Bringing out myself in me back again. So I can have my own thoughts again, truly my own and ‘dare’ to share my opinion and make my own decisions.
What do you like most about your life?
My partner (my fellow Hippo).
What do you like least about your life?
The traumatic events I had to endure.
If you could be anything in the world what would it be?
Wow, I really don’t know. I think I would be several things, because I’m interested in many different things and there are multiple ‘dreams’ I have. And I’m not so good in making decisions, so I couldn’t possibly decide on what I would want to be the most 😉
How long have you been blogging?
I started this blog (and this is my first blog) on December 1, 2015.
Do you see your blog changing in the future?
Yeah, I think it might. I’ve been wondering if I want to take it more into the ‘informative blogposts’ road, with advice. Or if I share more stuff about how it’s going with me. I do like to share information/advice that might help somebody out here on the Galactic Network, but I don’t think I want to become very unpersonal and not share my own experiences with the topic on hand.
So, the people I’d like to nominate are:
Pascalle from My life with chronic illness
Faith McCord from Little Lord Oscar Dandelion books
My questions for you are:
1. How did you come up with the name of your blog or username?
2. What are your special interests, hobbies, or collections?
3. What is your favourite quote/personal motto and why?
4. What is one quirky or interesting random fact about you, that most people may not know?
5. What are you most passionate about in your life?
Of course you don’t have to participate! And if you’d like to answer different questions (or in a different language) feel free to do so 🙂
