Blog Award - Liebster (second one!) :)

I am lucky enough to receive the second Liebster Blog award from Nikki who has a cozy blog The Little Nordic Cabin and inspires everyone to explore and get fascinated by the Nordic culture, nature and life! Thanks a lot, Nikki! It was a nice surprise for me:) As you might know there are several rules you need to follow when getting this award, here they are:
1. Answer 11 questions
2. Give 11 facts about yourself
3. Nominate 11 other lovely bloggers
4. Post 11 new questions for your new nominees
Nikki's questions for me are:
1. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up? Good question... I wanted to be a teacher, an astronaut, and ... may be a dancer:)
2. What did you actually grow up to become/what are you actually becoming? I am a philologist, teacher of Russian language and literature... Sadly I am doing a job which is not related to my degree at all.
3. Why do you blog? Because I was feeling depressed and low at that time and also bored, so I saw many beautiful blogs and said to myself that I could try it out too.
4. If you could have any super power, what would it  be? Fly!
5. Which moment in your life so far are you most proud of? Just yesterday - when I saw my husband dancing on the stage!:)
6. Is there a book you think everybody should read? Certainly "Master and Margarita" by Bulgakov - my love forever!
7. Do you remember what you were doing on this day last year? Hmm... must have been in the office.
8. 1 year from now, where would you like to be? Right where I am now.
9. What is your favourite country you've ever visited? Germany! Want to visit it again.
10. Do you have any sweet family traditions? In my parents' house we always have dinner at the table in a cozy kitchen.. I miss  it now.
11. What is your favourite song at the moment? Many of them, one is the Indian one "Je Lee Zaraa" from the movie "Talaash" ("Search").

P.S. not giving facts about myself, as I have given already in another post, and answering the questions was more than sufficient for the same purpose.


  1. Congrats for the award! Why don't you start teaching Russian on your blog? May be, one sentence on each blog post. Although google translate is there but it is fun to learn from friends :)

    1. Thank you, dear Preeti!
      Well, I had such thought but it's going to be too messed up in same post...I will have to make another blog for the same purpose. Let'see, it also requires some time.
      Thanks for encouraging, Preeti :)

  2. Anna I was casually going through this n wat do I see- my blog nominated :D Suprised!! Congrats and thanks. I am new to this whole award thing so can you explain a bit. Am I supposed to put up that picture of the award and answer those 11 questions while I nominate 11 more?? :) I hope its not a big question. Btw I totally agree with preeti, russian is my favorite language besides german, so may be i can get some learning from you :)

  3. Thank you for this award! It was so sweet of you to think of me! It may take me until next week to answer all the questions and to set it all up on a blog post and find everyone I want to nominate for this award.
    Please have a very lovely Holiday Season!

  4. Thank you for nominating me, Anna :) To answer the questions, should I post it on my blog? You know I'm still new to all this and I have many questions :)

    Also, Preeti's idea of teaching us a few words in Russian is a great one. When I did my EFL training we had to have a couple of immersion classes in a language none of us new and that language was...Russian! It was fun and I'd love to learn some more words from you. Elisabeth xx

    1. No thanks, Elisabeth:) yes, you have to put the answers in your blog so that your readers know more about you!:)
      Ok then, I will definitely think of this option in my posts! Thanks for inspiring and giving great ideas!
