Versatile Blogger Award

Thank you Otakutwins, Brianna and Angelina!! 🙂

versatileblogger111


Here is how it works:

  1. Write seven facts about yourself
  2. Nominate fifteen others to do the tag
  3. Let them know you tagged them!

7 Random Facts About Me

  1. I have a jewelry fetish. Like… I literally see some gorgeous piece of jewelry and stop like a deer in headlights and… just… STARE.
  2. Absolutely love this genre called microhistory. I honestly didn’t know what it was until recently, when it became alarmingly obvious that I have and still do read quite a bit of it.
  3. Granola bars. Granola bars are GOOD. (Especially Nature’s Valley Honey and Oats!)
  4. When I was younger, I was a big photo geek. I had a Polaroid (and eventually a Nikon) that I took with me EVERYWHERE. Now, I mostly only get shots on my phone, which is why I desperately need one that take phenomenal shots. Any recommendations, anyone? Anyone???
  5. I hate shopping. But I like things. This presents itself with problems, as I’m sure you can imagine.
  6. Within the last year or so, I’ve really gotten into reading ebooks more and more. This might have something to do with money constraints and the cheap price of ebooks as opposed to paperback but… I just really surprised myself! I never thought I would enjoy reading books on my kindle as much as I do now.
  7. My mates and I have our own calendar that we follow, which has its own set of holidays, festivals, and events that we annually get-together and celebrate. Some of them correlate to regular calendar dates, like our upcoming Aidakas on the 15th which is basically our version of a non-exclusive Valentines for all.

TIL : Have you ever been to a library sale?

On this week’s episode of TODAY I LEARNED

Ever wished you could get used or brand new books for killer deals but had no idea where to go to physically find them?

Well look no further!

Thanks to fellow blogger John Guillen, I’ve learned that there’s a website for that! (Sorry. No apps yet, I don’t think.) It’s called Book Sale Finder, and it basically lets you know when library sales are happening all over the US and Canada! You can search by state and find when libraries are having sales and at what prices you’d expect to see.

As per usual, my local library is doing absolutely nothing to help me out, but hopefully you might have better luck with yours! 🙂

meet the blogger : issue #1

Heeey, so this was also supposed to be posted yesterday-ish, but wasn’t because FML. @_@ Yesterday was crazy, and if it’s any indication of my week to come then I’m gonna be in for a doozy!

MEET THE BLOGGER is a new feature I’m doing here on Reckless Indulgence to allow readers to get to know their bloggers (and, for me, mostly to pass the time). I always do a lot of surveys/meme-quiz things and then never post them anywhere. I figured, it would be fun to have a little section on my blog just for that purpose! Sometimes the questions will be specifically related to the topic of this blog. Other times… not so much.

This is more an exercise for me to try socializing with others than anything else. XD An avenue for discussion, if you will. You can definitely run with this meme on your own blogs. I have no problem whatsoever with that and would enjoy seeing your answers to the questions I post and answer myself! Just tag your post  with the words: MEET THE BLOGGER and then link back to any of my meet the blogger posts so I can see what you wrote!

Have fun and I hope you enjoy this first glimpse into the crazy mind of Jaay~~
