First thing first: I would like to thank Ania for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award. I really enjoy Ania’s blog and I highly recommend that you go check it out. Without telling you everything about Ania, I must tell you that she is a Pole living in Washington DC. Well, the Washington DC part is not so important for the purpose of this story but the fact that she grew up in Poland is! Simply because I received the notification that I had been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Ania while I was chilling on a beach in Sopot! Coincidence? I don’t think so!
I like to see myself as “capable of doing many things competently”. This is taken from an online dictionary for versatile. Now, those who know me may disagree. If that is the case, you can go with the second definition: “having varied uses, serving many functions”. Your choice!

3- I did quite a detour to see the famous “bridge over the Drina”
4- I have too many t-shirts with the word “chicks”
5- I can’t dance and I can’t fly a helicopter
6- I once showed up at a “jacket and tie” party with that t-shirt
7- I used to be the king of BrickBreaker

Well, I realized that many of these bloggers are not necessarily “new to blogging”, but you know what rules are for. And since I did not follow the first rule properly, I think I will simply ignore the second one 😉
Thanks again Ania!
