I clearly remember my English lessons in my Russian school. I would hate it. But most of all I would hate when our English teacher gave us homework and told us all to make up some questions in English. Making questions was a grammar torture for me.
Now, I should make 11 questions for The Liebster Award and … I love it! Maybe my grammar is still a torture (for your eyes) but I like this homework much more than school’s one. And I want again to say thank you to my nominator Minimalist Guy for the award. He has a great life philosophy and some precious tips for decluttering not only your wardrobe but also your mind.

I would like to pass forward this Award to my nominees:
Now I will answer the questions for my nomination:
- What was the one thing that brought you to minimalism? I really love having much space around me. I don’t like to be surrounded by many small things and boxes and souvenirs and lots of other stuff. A room of my dream looks like an empty space with a large window and a sofa (and maybe with a door).
- What has the greatest recognized benefit in your life since starting your minimalist path? I can find anything and everything. Even if I put that there the day I started my minimalist path.
- What is your favorite smell? I don’t have a favourite smell, or more precisely, I have a lot of those. I like the way they make me feel better about myself and remind me of different events, people, and feelings.
– It’s the aroma of fresh-cut grass. It reminds me of my childhood “when the trees were tall” and the grass was freshly cut.
– It’s the scent of freshly baked rolls. It reminds me of my childhood when I could eat it without thinking about a global problem of obesity.
– It’s the smell of freshly pressed newspapers. It reminds me of my childhood when there’s no Internet access. Wow, all the smells are about the time when I was a child… I hope it’s not a symptom of a Peter Pan Syndrome.
- If you could travel to one place in the world, where would it be and what is keeping you from going? Tibet. It’s not a proper time for it. I believe there will be an omen for me to go there. Yes, I believe in omens and I hope it’s not a symptom of something else.
- How have you been cheating on your future by thinking about your past? Well, I think it’s not about me.
- What situation in your life turned out to be a blessing in disguise? Honestly, I consider any negative situation as a blessing in disguise. I formed this attitude to life a couple of years ago. So there are many of those examples.
- What’s in your junk drawer, if you have one? I have a magic box where I keep all the things that I can’t throw away for many reasons. I used to have about 8 such boxes.
- When was the last time you stepped outside the box to do something, what was it? I try to do it all the time. I used to make myself to do so because sometimes it’s hard, now it happens by itself. I would say it’s like a drug and I’ve become seriously addicted.
- What is your middle name? I’d like to keep this a secret 🙂
- What are your next minimalist goals? To throw away those 8 boxes I’ve hidden in a garage.
Here is my list of questions for my nominees:
- Where would you want to spend your time between ages 60 and 80? Doing what?
- If you had the necessity to be a school teacher for one day, which subject would you teach?
- You had a really hard day. What will you do to recover from it?
- What is your best way to start a new day?
- Who would you want to be in your future life?
- If you could change you career path, what career would you choose?
- Imagine that there will be no Internet access available for the next 3 months. Did you imagine that? What was the first thing that came to your mind?
- If you had to write a book about one of your faults, which fault would you choose?
- If you could star in the next movie premiere, what genre would you choose?
- Imagine that all the photo devices will disappear tomorrow, and you can only take 3 photos, what would you photograph?
- Mountain, forest, sea or valley?
I can’t wait to see your answers 😉
