Versatile Blogger Award, Courtesy of Unabridged Sass and Currently Lately

Chrissey of Unabridged Sass is absolutely amazing and nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award! Her blog is spreading like wildfire and before you read this post, you need to stop and go to her blog- Chrissey has a post for everyone. Paige of Currently, Lately also nominated for the award and now you have to read at least five of her posts, because it WILL make you a more elegant and worldly person. (You will also take better pictures, so I will wait while you read!) 


Now that you have visited both Chrissey and Paige, let’s get down to the award itself!


  • Share the award on your blog
  • Thank the person that nominated you and link their site.
  • Nominate 10 bloggers and let them know that they have been nominated.
  • Provide seven facts about you.

Seven Facts About Me

1. I’ve trained in three different schools of ballet- Royal Academy of Dance, Cechetti, and Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance. The large majority of my training is in RAD, so I’m finding my Cechetti classes at the RWB are an excellent challenge!
2. I lived in Dublin for a year when I did my MA in Early Irish History, and I would give both arms to live there again. It feels like home.
3. I’ve also spent a fair amount of time in London, and would also love to live there. It’s true- if you are tired of London, you are tired of life.
4. My favourite television show is Gilmore Girls, I’m a firm Team Logan fan. I was a little crushed by Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.
5. I’m in love with westies and huskies- both sassy and smart dogs that happen to be adorable!
6. I am fascinated by royal history, particularly the British Royal Family (I’m well past reading 100 royal histories and biographies).
7. I am an involved alumna of my sorority (Alpha Gamma Delta), and my favourite aspect is our traditions- it’s the historian out in me!

Thank you again, to Chrissey and Paige!!

Until tomorrow,
The Historian!

    I love Gilmore Girls. Can I ask why didn’t you like “Gilmore Girls: a year in the life”?

      That could be an essay haha, but I’ll nutshell it! I think that Rory is entitled and selfish and unrealistic and has not matured since season 7 ended. I think that the wrong things were given screen time, ie a 15 minute musical over more Lane or Michele time. And I feel like Amy Sherman Palladino ignored that season 7 happened- I understand that she wasn’t there for it, but season 7 DID happen!! You can’t just ignore it because you couldn’t agree to a contract and the people left didn’t do exactly what you wanted! Annnnnnd, rant over 🙂

        Yeah girl, couldn’t agree more. Rory doesn’t act like a 32 year old at all.

    I loved learning some new facts about you! Many of these I already knew, but I loved the new ones. Westies are adorable and sassy pups, aren’t they? I like your choice of superpower as well – highly practical, as you point out.

    I think my superpower would be to slow down time. Is that cheating, lol?

    I’m also interested in royal history! Loved reading your responses!

    Oh my… I was so busy going to the blogs you were nominated by that I didn’t even really get to finishing reading right away. Thank you dear for the nomination.

    And I definitely believe my super power is a super power.. I just wanna kick butt like the Black Widow.
