With a Power Vested within Me...

I guess it will be a long one and maybe a bit chaotic post as i am going to put many many many things into it. And i want to start with passing on some awards which i have received lately and was too lazy to present :D

I have received:

from Hope:

and from Sami:

So hereby with the power vested within me i hand it over to the following people.... (this line i have stolen from somewhere :D )

Creative Blogger Award: Akki, Preeti, Meghna, Arti Honrao

Best Friends Award: Div and Akki (love you girls :))

Now I also have been surprised by Nick

who declared me a Blogging Mentor. The whole meaning of this award you can read here from its creator. There you also can find the original images of the award as the one shown above is i guess Nick's creation. Still the main idea is giving appreciation to those bloggers who have made impact on you and guided you on the way to the better blogger. So now i am passing it on to Sami who has made me come back to blogging :) Keep rocking, sweetheart!!

I have got some more awards but will keep them for the next time ;)

Now to other points of the post. First, lets believe this template i have got is final. It has all i ever needed and i will try not to confuse my readers with changing a layout every now and then ;)

Secondly, I have launched a new blog. And of course you all are welcome

And here finally the tag, actually i only intended to do the tag but then so many things came inbetween ;)

I have been tagged a lot lately. And today will do link tags. I was tagged by Ranjhani and Andrea for 2 different link tags.

Ranjhani asked me to list links of 5 favourite posts and Andrea asked to put a list of 5 links which are related to certain categories.

Here are the rules:

Go back through your archives and post the links to your five favorite blog posts that you’ve written. But there is a catch:

Link 1 must be about family
Link 2 must be about friends
Link 3 must be about yourself
Link 4 must be about something you love
Link 5 can be anything you choose

Post your five links and then tag five other people. At least TWO of the people you tag must be newer acquaintances so that you get to know each other better.
Readers - don’t forget to read the archive posts and leave comments!

So I combined 2 tags and here i go:

  • About Family: as you have noticed though it is a personal blog i dont add much of personal stuff here, but i went through archives over and over again and i couldnt find anything.... I do love them but dont write about them. Maybe one day i will :)

  • About Friends:


    And here I promise
    That no matter what happens
    I’ll be there for you,
    Any time
    Any place
    And always ...

  • About Myself

    If they don't have chocolate in heaven, I ain't going
    I cry when i watch sad movies.... and I cry when i watch happy ones.. I guess I am just too senti. Now please dont make me feel embarassed and please never mention this fact. ;) Read More...

  • About something I love

    Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower
    Being silly when I want it.
    Saying things because I mean it.
    Crying when I feel it.
    Laughing when I feel funny.
    Loving people important to me.
    Saying the truth even though it might hurt.
    Going for things that might be bad in the end.
    Read More

  • Just about anything - here i will choose 2 as i missed the first point about family ;)

    There is no Way to Happiness, Happiness is the Way - i guess my favourite :)

    Life would be different if...

    we had no sunrises to watch
    there were no rains for walking out
    there were no first snowfall each year
    there were no flowers to blossom ....
    Read More

    Because it was he; because it was me
    "And if I am pressed to say why I loved him, I feel it can only be explained by replying: "Because it was he; because it was me." ... Read More

Ufffff ... that was a tough task, but now i am done!!

And here is my turn to tag people which i am doing with great pleasure - Anoop, Div, Sami, Jackie and Shalini. You can pick up one of 2 tags or combine them. If you already have done it, please leave a link in comments, i am curious to read :)
