Happy 101 & Final Tags of One Lovely Blog Awards (With some babbles. Because that's what I do)

I'm happy. Are you happy?

So far since I’ve started this book blog late last year I’ve received 3 blog awards. They make me very happy upon initially receiving them, but then I start going into panic mode.

Allow me to illustrate:

EMAIL: You’ve got a blog award!
Me: YAY!!! *dances* I am the most awesome person in the entire world.
POST: Now that you’ve got this award, pass it on to a hundred people!
Me: OKAY! So I know this one blog, and this other one and… Oh gawd, I don’t know any more blogs!! CLEARLY THIS MEANS I SUCK AND DON’T SOCIAL NETWORK ENOUGH AND I MUST HIDE IN MY CORNER OF SHAME.

Yeah, so I? Am basically a complete spaz with the maturity age of my shoe size somewhat highly strung. I am not the best person to be around when school test results comes in… (Unless you like to laugh at the sight of my panic-striken expression, that is. I’ve been told it’s quite funny.)

But this is not a confession post on my somewhat-highly-strung ways. This is in fact, a post to reveal that something saved me from going into my usual panic mode! So this is how it went:

Me: YAY YAY YAY!! … Oh gawd, after all these months, do I really still not know enough blogs to fulfill the rules?
BLOGGER DASHBOARD: You haz followers.

Yes, all my lovely, shiny followers, it is YOU who have saved me. You all make me happy and I can think of no other who deserves a Happy 101 Award than y’all. ♥

List 10 things that make you happy. Try and do at least one of them today.

1) Reading Novels/Manga/Manhwa/Fanfiction
2) Watching TV Shows/Movies (Mostly US/UK/KR/JP/TW)
3) Book shopping. Especially if there’s bargains
4) Knee-high socks. The more colourful the better
5) Going into the movie theatre.
6) Talking with friends, wherein I can babble about nothing and they won’t mind.
8) Toronto
9) Malaysia
10) My family, even if they’re loud and do not believe in knocking before walking into my room. ♥

Aw, thanks for giving me the "One Lovely Blog" Award. I'm afraid I've got the same problem you used to have though.. (psst, I've got no one to pass it on to!!)

But anyway, noticed that Malaysia makes you happy? Malaysia makes me super super happy too!! I love Malaysia to bits. =)

Thank you for participating! And, is that TaeKyung I see from You're Beautiful? *o*

Ohh, I LOVE desserts. Except I almost never have room for them, lol. Congrats on the awards! :)

lol, it's okay, I don't think it's necessary to pass it on, or just pass it on to as many blogs you know, even if it doesn't add up to 15. The whole point of an award is to just award someone, right? lol I just try my hardest to award ppl because I know it makes others happy and I am a follow-the-rules kind of girl. ^^;

Oh gawd yes, I love Malaysia. I haven't gone back in like, a LIFETIME. *misses it*

I'm deleting your comment, but I just changed the post a little before you commented. It's only a text code now, because I forgot that you can't use images in posts! Hope it works for you now. :)
