    And omggggg! This is what happened while I was reading this post:

    And I also really like the book 1984 :)

    Also have you ever heard of reddit.com? There is a sub reddit called "IAMA" (I am a...) where people can post and you can ask them questions. There's been many with older people and theirs are truly amazing to read. My most favorites are veterans and holocaust survivors. You can see the title of the thread at the end of the URL.

    My most favorite one was this one:
    (a grandson transcribes for his 4 grandparents. Both of his grandfathers served in WW2 one was a marine on Iwo and Okinawa and the other Navy. The Navy grandfather served in Korea also.)



    1. OMG that meme was so awesome and made my day! :) I have heard of Reddit, but I never knew about IAMA, thanks for the links! :)

    2. LMAO!! That meme is awesome!!! I love personalized memes!

    3. haha I'm glad you both liked it :)!!!

      My other favorite subreddit is "TIL" - today i learned.. :) you learn SO much!!

    4. I'll have to check it out :)

  11. jelous of the winner of the glasses!!! so cool.


  12. That's so exciting about the winner! Congrats!

    And thank you for the nomination!! So sweet of you!

    I also agreed with you about 1984... SUCH a weird book!

  13. Congrats on the award and thank you so much for the kind nomination :) I've yet to read 1984 though I really should, it's such a classic and has a very timeless message. I think naturally wavy hair is so pretty, though a lot of my friends who have naturally wavy hair always want it to be straight :p I only studied one sociology subject at uni, but it was really fascinating. Kind of wish I pursued it a bit more!

  14. Really cool give-away! Congratulations for the award. Great blog :)
