The Sunshine Blogger Award + My Ballet Exam Results!

Hello, Truuties!

I’m so sorry for not posting anything in three weeks! I’ve been quite busy. I’ll try to keep on blogging every week.

I was nominated by the lovely Hope from @HighHopes to do the Sunshine Blogger Award! Thank you so much, Hope! You can see her post for this award if you click here.


1) Thank the person who nominated you 🙂

2) Answer the 11 questions set by the person who nominated you

3) Nominate 11 bloggers to receive the award

4) Include 11 new questions for your nominees to answer

These are the questions from Hope and my answers:

What can you see out of your window and what is the weather like right now?

Right now, out of my window, I can see my front garden (our car, the fence, bay trees, lavender bushes, a big magnolia tree and lots of other things) and quite a lot cars going past as well as a few people. I can also see my neighbour’s front garden, a pub, a church, lots of tall trees etc. The weather is quite cloudy and now it has just started raining! UK weather is very unpredictable!

How old are you (and when is your birthday)?

I would prefer not to share my age and birthday online just yet but I think I will in the future. Sorry! What I will say is that I am a ‘tween’. 😉

What is your favourite thing to blog about?

I have lots of things that I love to blog about, I’m not sure what my favourite is, haha! I love blogging about life in general, lifestyle, travel, culture and countries, Japan, diet and nutrition/cooking, baking, dance, photography, Christianity and lots more!

Is there a story behind your blog name/why did you choose it?

I would like to share the truth and beauty of life. My cover name, ‘Truuty’ is a mashup of ‘truth’ and ‘beauty’ which is my blog name/title. There is more meaning behind my blog name but I will probably talk about that in a different post in the future.

Can you speak any languages?

Apart from the obvious – English, I can speak Japanese! Even though I am able to have a conversation in Japanese, I am definitely a lot more fluent in English. At the moment, I am trying to work hard to become very fluent in Japanese! (By the way, in case you weren’t aware, I am half-Japanese/half-English.) Hopefully, as soon as possible, I will write my blog posts in both languages (with translations) to encourage Japanese bloggers to visit my little corner of the internet! I would really like to make friends with bloggers all over the world!

What do your family/friends think of you blogging/your blog?

My family and friends think it is a really good way to share my thoughts with others!

Do you play any instruments or if not, what would you like to be able to play?

I don’t play any instruments but if I had time to fit in something extra into my life, I would probably like to learn the piano. A while ago, I started learning some piano because my mum used to play the piano when she was a child and she taught me a little. However, I couldn’t carry on with it because there were other things that I wanted to focus on such as dance and school in general.

Organised or messy?

Even though my room can sometimes get a bit messy, I much prefer being organised and I think all my friends would call me a very organised person! I am still learning about organisation skills, though!

If you could only take three things to a desert island what would you take?

This is such a hard question! I really can’t be definite but for now, I’ll say –

  • Journal + pencil
  • Snacks to keep me going (haha)
  • Swiss Army knife

Favourite and least favourite subject at school?

I like religious studies but I also like art and geography and I quite like English as well. Oh, and I love French and Spanish! I also like PE at the moment because we are doing athletics! Sorry, that was more than one subject haha! I don’t know what my least favourite subject is because I think they are all important. However, if I had to choose one, I think I would say maths.

Best book you ever read?

Classic – ‘Anne of Green Gables’ by L.M Montgomery

Okay, so I said I would let you all know my ballet exam results. Many of you might not know what I am talking about so I’ll quickly explain –  I took my grade 4 ballet exam at the beginning of March and I mentioned it in my post called The Power of Smiles! I’ll tell you my results now…I got a distinction!! I’m so happy about my results! Thank you, everyone, for your support and your ‘good luck’ comments – it really helped me to dance with all my heart during the exam because sometimes I thought of my blog readers and that reminded me of how many people are supporting me! Thank you so much!

Lots of love,

Truuty xx

I would love to hear from you in the comments!

Can you relate to me from my answers to the questions? Have you ever taken a ballet exam? If you have, what experiences did you have from it?
