The Spirit Animal Blog Award

Thank you very much to Tadhg from Ask a Teen Aspie for nominating me for this award. He writes a blog helping people to understand Asperger’s syndrome; posting his poetry and discussing his experiences and opinions. Here is one of his posts that I would especially recommend: Coming Out as Autistic

So if you’re interested, check that out!


  1. The rules for this award are:
  2. Post the award picture on your blog
  3. Write a short paragraph about yourself and what your blog means to you
  4. If you could be any animal, what would you be?
  5. Pick ten nominees.


About Myself and What My Blog Means to Me:

My name is Jamila. My main goal at the moment is to make every minute of my life count towards achieving what I want to achieve. That is, acquire as much knowledge as possible and have as much fun as possible. Complete writing a book, and get good enough at guitar to perform. I don’t see the point of us wasting time, when every minute is an opportunity, a blank space to fill with meaning! I love the Gothic, and I love music. I like reading, talking with people and art journaling. The last time I went to school was when I was eleven. I don’t believe that we need qualifications to get a job or be happy. I don’t believe in restricting one’s thinking or attitude just to “fit in.” If you have an idea, you must live it, as long as it does not harm others.

This blog is a place where I can talk about my views and express myself. One of the best parts is that people with similar interests can easily find each other’s writing on WordPress.  I can write and know that others will read. I can see people’s responses to what I have written, which is always encouraging. I like to know when people feel the same way that I do about something, and my understanding increases when people feel differently. This blog is something to nurture, grow and find satisfaction in.

If I Were A Spirit Animal, I would Be a…

I’ve always wondered what  it’s like to be a cat. Where do they wander off to when we can’t see them? How do they see humans? How do they see each other? Also, they don’t have responsibilities. So if I were an animal, I’d be a cat.

The 10 People I Nominate Are:

The award is non-obligatory, so if you don’t have time to do it, that’s cool. The spirit animal you choose can either be one you feel represents your characteristics, or simply an animal you’d like to be.

  1. Thank you for thinking of me, but I don’t do awards anymore as they can be pretty time-consuming. However, I will answer the question of which animal I would be: a dragon. 🙂

    By the way, now you have me wondering where the heck cats go when they wander off. If I followed a cat, would that be considered stalking? 😉

  2. I just subscribed to Ask a Teenage Aspie. Thanks for letting us know about this important blog.

    I love the short paragraph that you wrote about yourself! You are very inspirational Jamila! And you definitely have a good head on your shoulders. You seem to know what you want and where you are going in life. And you are committed to not wasting any time, especially with how fast time flies and how little of it we actually have in the grand scheme of things. Very admirable! Hats off to you! 🙂

    • Hi Jade,
      Sorry I’m so late replying to this! I just wanted to say that you made me SO happy when you said I was inspirational, especially because YOU have inspired me as well through the many comments left on my blog, and through posts on your own. One thing you wrote in particular stands out, and that is the comment (which is more than a “comment”) on my post about fears last year. I frequently think back to it and how it’s encouraged and motivated me!! It meant a lot.
      Have a great day,

  3. ooooh thank you ❤ I don't think I've heard about this tag/award before but it sounds amazing & totally different, will have to do it sometime this month!

    By your writings I could definitely imagine you being a cat, thinking a lot, having your own mind, being mysterious but still playful!
