Questions Answered, Some Apologies Aka The Liebster Blog Award

Liebster Blog Award

   In this posts I will telling you about ..... You see, I got nominated for the Liebster Blog award by Miriam from Auxvisit, who I have been following since her first posts. I have blogger envy admire the cute illustrations from her posts and it makes me wish I could draw. Thanks for nominating me, Miriam!
   So the Liebster award is a chain-letter award so if you get it, you pass it on to bloggers that you love. "Liebster" means nicest in German. The nominated person (in this case me) answers the questions of the person who nominated me. At the end of this blog I'll be nominating a couple of blogs from my readers :)

   Here are the questions, I will be answering in English because my written German is pretty awful.

1. Was gibt es auf dieser Welt (noch) nicht, das es Deiner Meinung nach auf jeden Fall geben sollte?
What doesn't exist (yet) but definitely should?
   A contraceptive method for women that is reliable and free from side effects. I suspect that it has already been invented but is being kept a secret, because it wouldn't make as much money as the current methods do.

2. Welche Eigenschaft hast Du so gar nicht?
What characteristic you don't possess at all?
   Self-discipline, alas. I am fuelled by pure emotional motivation.

3. Welche Eigenschaft hättest Du lieber?
What characteristic would you rather have? 
   Apart from self-discipline, sometimes I'd like to be an adrenaline-junkie. I'd sky-dive and surf and spelunk. Right now even a water-slide is too much for me.

4. Wenn Dein Leben verfilmt würde: Wer würde Dich spielen?
If a film were made about you, who would play you?
   I'd love to pick Leighton Meester or Carey Mulligan, but I'm probably flattering myself.

5. Schwimmbad oder See?
Swimmingpool or lake?
    Definitely lake. I hate chlorine, I like silence and solitude. Also, I don't actually swim, I just lie around with a book.

6. Deine phantastischste Neuentdeckung 2015 (Musik, Buch, Film, Ort, Mensch, …):
Your fantastic discovery of 2015 (Music, book, film, place, person)
   Can I do one from each category? Marie Kondo's Magic Of Tidying Up, La Grande Bellezza or Only Lovers Left Alive (can't decide), Arctic Monkeys' Do I Wanna Know.

7. Welches Print-Magazin magst Du am liebsten?
Which print magazine do you like most?
   Wysokie Obcasy is my favourite, and I haven't found anything comparable so far in Germany. I browse through Interview sometimes at my favourite Chocolaterie, and through Land Lust for visual inspiration. Most other magazines disappoint me, they rehash content that I have seen on blogs and forums years ago.

8. Welche Entschuldigung musst Du gerade dringend loswerden? (Lass den Adressat ruhig weg!)
Which apology do you like to let go off?
   Oh dear, there are quite a few. If you are one of the many people I owe a few coins to, I'm sorry, I completely forgot so please remind me. Also, quite a few people have gotten what was supposed to be a sincere complement but got totally messed up in execution, I'm sorry.

9. Wann/wie/wo bist Du das erste Mal auf die Idee gekommen, zu bloggen?
When and how did you start blogging?
   I think it was seven years back that I stored my skin and hair care notes on a private blog, because it was an easy way to access it from different computers (pre-Evernote). At a certain point I realised that what I write might be interesting for others, so I tried writing a couple of public posts. I was extremely surprised that people actually read them. It was much more rewarding than preaching to my irl friends, so I kept at it.

10. Stell Dir vor, die Blogosphäre löst sich plötzlich – warum auch immer – im Nichts auf. Was machst Du?
Imagine that the Blogosphere suddenly disappears -- for whatever reason. What do you do?
   I'd probably cry, and maybe even hold a memorial service for all the blogs I have read, like that scene in Orange Is The New Black. Then I'd probably go back to the days when I dispensed beauty advice to (often uninterested) friends, acquaintances and strangers.

11. Wir tippen ja immer nur. Wie sieht eigentlich Deine Handschrift aus? (Beschreiben oder einen beliebigen Satz einscannen)
We only type all of the time. How does your handwriting look like? 
  It's an embarrassing scrawl that I really hate to read. You don't want to see that, so instead you get my very best handwriting, done at extremely slow speed:

And the award goes to...
