The Liebster Award..(Yay!!)

 So all I have been looking at for the past couple of months are highly complex definitions and formulae, theory that makes you go crazy in the head and notes that seem to magically induce sleep no matter the time of day. When your brain is almost entirely jammed with conjectures that refuse to make themselves available when they are needed most, you lose your capacity to think straight and go slightly (okay not slightly) bonkers. You drink tea like your life depended on it while all your organs stop cooperating with the sudden body clock you enforce on your system.
In this crazy state (looking like a harridan and desperately needing a good night’s sleep) I decided to check out my blog that I had neglected so viciously, thanks to the exams. I was somewhere in between the about-to-doze-off state and the need-to-be-alert imposition when I was jolted awake from my zombie like stance on seeing so many comments awaiting moderation on my blog. I did a mental jig and an absolutely fantastic somersault in my head (which let me tell you, is entirely impossible for me to imitate in real life). You see, comments are what we bloggers thrive on and for the life of me I couldn’t remember the last time I had seen so many comments awaiting moderation on my blog (actually I have never seen so many awaiting moderation to be honest).
But my blog had even more surprises stashed like a kid’s stocking in Christmas. I had been nominated for The Liebster Award by my fellow blogger Sahiti Janaswamy and my elation knew no bounds as it shot through the roof and burst into imaginary fireworks above my head!! Thank you so much Sahiti for the surprise; I was literally making faces at my pessimistic other half saying,” Oh yeah you gloomy little pig!! My blog ain’t as unpopular as you make it out to be.” You may check out her amazing works at Sahiti- Euphorian Dreams 

Being nominated for The Liebster entails the blogger to fulfil certain official rules, which I have listed below for the convenience of the upcoming five nominees.

The Liebster Award Official Rules!!

If you have been nominated for The Liebster Award AND YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT, write a blog post about the Liebster award in which you:
1. Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.
2. Display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)
3. Answer 11 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.
4. Provide 11 random facts about yourself.
5. Nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 1000 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!)
6. Create a new list of questions for the blogger to answer.
7. List these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to:
8. Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!)
