You’re Awesome

01cfc1e2-116e-46e8-81cf-e6e04f24fe2c

Yes you are, that’s right you, you are awesome.

But so am I apparently, that why I’ve been nominated for the You’re Awesome award.

So all I have do is answer these following questions

 

1. You are awesome; tell us why.

Why is a raven like a writing desk?

2. You are my friend; tell us about other friends.

Perhaps my closest friends at the moment are my five house mates who occasionally join me on my various walks across Wales. When I first arrived in Bangor for my University course, I didn’t know anyone and I possessed a distinct lack of social skills. However one night I ended up playing cluedo with a load of my new flatmates and we’ve all been good friends ever since, to the extent that we rented a house together. My time here at Uni would undoubtedly have been made much harder if wasn’t for their continuing support and warmth.

3. Be creative, but it’s ok if you are having trouble with this one/ There are no direct questions to answer; let yourself run wild!

Ok…creative…right…umm… (goes onto google)……Did you know that today is the 101 anniversary of the birth of Maria Augusta Kutschera, not familiar with that name? Well Maria would later marry Georg von Trapp in 1927. Along with Georg’s own seven children, the couple would have another 3 and they toured Austria and Germany as the Trapp Family Choir. Maria’s story of course was the inspiration behind Roger’s and Hammerstein’s Broadway musical The Sound of Music. The family eventually moved to the USA in 1940 and Georg died of lung cancer in 1947. Maria however went on to become a missionary in Papa New Guinea after the band split in 1957, before moving back to Vermont to mange the family lodge, where she stayed until her death in 1982.

There’s some creative trivia, believe me that sort of thing will definitely come up in a game of trivial pursuit at some point and when it does and you are able to answer a question on Maria von Trapp correctly, then should come back here and thank me.

Wait..you want more creativity??

Well, ok then…..

  1. Thanks for the nomination! I really do appreciate the sentiment. I mostly just write my blog to keep friends and family updated on my life. I’m always surprised when I find out that other people are actually interested in what I have to say. Being here in Germany is actually my third time studying abroad (in the second country where I don’t speak the language well!). Don’t be afraid to get in touch and pick my brain about studying abroad. I love talking about it. I know quite a bit not only from personal experience, but also because I worked in the office at my undergrad college that houses all the study abroad programs.
