Creative Blogger Award

Hello my friends,

I have something different for you today, Beatrice from ShootingVienna has nominated me for the Creative Blogger Award. Since i’m kinda stuck in a rut with my photography, i thought this may be a good opportunity to make a post about something totally unrelated and get them engines going πŸ™‚

The rules are simple: The nominee is requested to share 5 random facts about oneself and is supposed to nominateΒ 15-20 other bloggers to do so as well. Or less if you can’t think of so many persons πŸ˜›

So here 5 random facts about me, i hope you enjoy them!

  • 1) You probably already know that i’m half Austrian and half Greek. Well, my Austrian side is mostly Austrian with a taste of Hungarian and a pinch of Croatian. So yeah, i’m pretty mixed up! XD
  • 2) Before i decided that i wanted to study photography and be a photographer, i seriously considered, a career as: a track athlete, a detective, an archeologist, an architect, a graphic designer (this might actually come true soon), a pilot, a stewardess, an aircraft mechanic, a computer technician…what else? You get the point…I envy the people who have one true passion in their lives…I never knew…Still don’t know… πŸ˜•
  • 3) I don’t like coffee, i don’t like Nutella, i don’t like Bacon, i don’t like Angelina Jolie, i don’t like Brad Pitt and basically all the people who are considered to be the world’s most beautiful. I like natural beauty, rough features, imperfections, scars, all these movie stars and supermodels that are being adored are totally indifferent to me. Also on this topic, kinda, i’m really proud cause i never owned/wore a Converse shoe! Even when they were so much in demand and practically everyone in the world owned at least one pair…i never did! 😎 I’m such a rebel, i know…Hahaha…
  • 4) I’m a nerd!Β ^^’ I love gaming, computers and anything technical. They say girls aren’t good at that stuff. Think again.. I’ve been a gamer since 1988, had a PC (Amstrad CPC 464) since i was 3 years old, i was programming my own games in BASIC, well my dad is to blame for that! But for a kid that grew up in a remote village of 500 people that were living in a world at least 20 years back in time, i have to thank my dad for being so ahead of his time and introduced me to a world that the other kids in my village got to know when they were teens…and some not even then…
  • 5) Weirdly, my vision is perfect, even though i’ve spend countless hours in front of computer screens and i say that because as a teen i was obsessed and wanted to wear glasses! I intentionally sat in a dark room and played games for hours to cause eye strain and damage my vision so i could get to wear glasses! XD It never happened! I still find glasses totally sexy on other people… but i can live without them now…
