Liebster Award: 2014 Edition

Today, I got genuinely surprised when I found out that I was nominated for the Liebster Award. Even more so, because I had no idea what the hell that was. Now that I've gotten to know what its all about I would like to thank Klavdija of C'est la vie for nominating me. Do check out her blog, interesting stuff!

Now to the real deal. First the rules
  • Thank the person who nominated you and link back up to their blog
  • State 11 facts about yourself
  • Answer the 11 questions given to you by the nominator
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers for this award who have less than 200 followers 
  • Create 11 questions for your nominees to answer
  • Let the nominees know that they have been nominated by going to their blog and notifying them

Interesting and not so interesting facts about me:
  • I wear glasses at home and contact lenses whenever I'm in public.
  • I still speak a bit of French, but it is getting worse with every day of not using it.
  • Its the same with Russian, only worse, because I had only been learning it for two years in grammar school. I can still read Cyrillic though.
  • I have a fox-coloured eurasier (eurasian) dog named Dina.
  • I started cutting my own hair last October.
  • I hate smudges and finger prints on my glasses.
  • I have "a small amount" of OCD, think greatly of humour and people with great sense of it.
  • I pick up my guitar every few days and play for an hour, usually when everyone else in my house have already gone to bed.
  • In primary school I always wanted to be a waiter. Then in grammar school I wanted to go study Law or Architecture. I ended up studying Computer and Information Science.
  • I love suits, ties, coats, ... and often comment on how men are dressed on TV or out on the street.
  • I love Suits, Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Top Gear and some others.

Answering my nominators questions:
  • Describe yourself in one sentence.
I can be quite uninteresting (though rarely), sometimes indifferent, sometimes eager, think highly of myself, funny, smart, hetero-sapiosexual.
  • What is your favourite music?
I don't have a favourite genre, because I like so many of them. I listen to almost everything. Most interesting are probably drum 'n' bass, dubstep, glitch hop. I love Tommy Emmanuel, The Beatles, Gramatik, Fox Stevenson, Netsky, Frank Sinatra, Dalmatian music. I love singing along The Beatles or Frank. I like Andrea Bocelli, Luciano Pavarotti, ...
  • What is your favourite food? 
Another decision I cannot make. I love a lot of different food, I adore meat, hate veggies. I've only tried it once, but I like sushi too.
  • Where would you be in this very moment, if you had unlimited money and time?
Travelling around the world and settling in New York in a big, beautiful apartment (like Harvey's in Suits) with a great view, or here.
  • Which are your favourite movies? (name 3)
Too many choices, cannot be done.
  • What scares you the most?
Probably failing miserably at something, anything.
  • What you really don't like?
Studying. I just don't have the nerves.
  • What are your biggest dreams?
I don't have dreams, I have goals. Making it big with something I love doing.
  • Do you want to get married and have kids one day or are you more like a careerist?
I would like to get married (not any time soon), have two children, a boy to carry the name and a girl.
  • Your favourite city or destination in the world?
I actually haven't seen much of the world yet, but right now, New York.
  • If you had to choose one supernatural power, what would you choose?
Being able to read other people's minds.
