Sunshine Award

I thoroughly enjoy getting nominated for awards, as for one it's an award and I should enjoy it for that reason in and of itself, but more so because it's a blog post basically already written. I do some copying and pasting, answer questions about myself (which I enjoy to begin with), thank the blogger who nominated me, and post that biz up for the world to see.

With that wonderful introduction, I was nominated for the Sunshine Award!

I'd first off like to thank Envy at Picking Up the Pieces for making all this fantasticness happen in the first place. I've been following her blog for a while and I'd highly recommend you go over and follow her yourself because I can't do all this work for you.

Next off are the rules because I hear there's a blog award mafia that lurks in the corner of every good blogger's computer room where they intend to strike whenever necessary. (Literally I make this joke every time I get an award, it's basically become another rule.)

Thank the person who nominated you. 
Answer the questions. 
Nominate a bunch of other people. 
Give them questions for homework. 
Tell them they've got homework. 
Put the award picture on your blog. 

Now onto Envy's questions:

1. What is your favorite book and why?
This is probably the hardest question to ever answer because it's very taxing to go through your entire reading history and pick just one measly book to represent every thing you love. On that note, I'll provide everyone a list, in no particular order:

1. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
2. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
3. Every Harry Potter book ever written

2. Do you have any hobbies that your friends think are ridiculous, but that you totally like?
I strangely don't, but I'm pretty sure that's because everything I would consider "strange" that I do, I usually don't tell people even if we're really good friends. I like having a hint of privacy about myself that if I died tomorrow and something about myself came up, everyone would be surprised that I ever did such a thing. This probably sounds extremely absurd to everyone, but I like to keep certain things private about myself especially in a world where everyone knows everything. 

Also when my friends move/go off to college, I want to have some super secret thing about myself that I can conceal to them before we part ways.

3. What's the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to you?
My life is essentially one big embarrassing moment if that helps. I say dumb stuff all the time. I'm wrong a lot and argue that my wrong reason is right ending in embarrassing defeat. I think I'll stop here before I go into a nervous breakdown over my life.

4. What would you miss most about blogging if you had to stop?
Probably pulling up blogger on my computer and getting that feeling of happiness because you have a new comment. I love hearing from everyone!

5. Who's your biggest inspiration? (Not sure if I'm asking this question the right way... but I hope you understand what I mean)
This probably sounds extremely bad, but I have never really pin pointed that one person that I can dub as my true inspiration. There are a lot of celebrities that I would probably die, resurrect, die, and resurrect again if I ever met in person (Amy Poehler, any celeb from Grey's Anatomy, Michaela Conlin, Taylor Schilling, Betty White, anyone from the Kardashian lineage, etc.), but not necessarily someone that I absolutely 100% aspire to be like in every aspect of my life. If you know of any such person, I'm all ears.

Now Onto My Questions:

1. If you wrote a memoir on your life, what would you title it?

2. What is your favorite political issue to debate (gay marriage, immigration, etc.)?

3. Favorite crummy joke that's been told 100 million times and you are about to make it 100 million and one?

4. Reason behind your blog name?

5. Favorite TV show to binge watch on Netflix?

Nominating people is probably the absolute worst thing ever because you have to choose people and link their blogs and comment to tell them and you get all antsy because you think that they think they're obligated to do all this stuff. So to make this award go by without all this mess I am nominating EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU.

If you read that sentence you are nominated (therefore, no need to comment on your blog as I'm busy writing 10 million and one other blog posts that I'm sure you would rather me be doing for entertainment purposes). I'm not even kidding people, forget all that obligation anxiety I wrote about above, because you are all now obligated to write up a post on this award I'm giving you in a Vanna White presentation. 

In case I have some foreigners who are unaware of Vanna's fame.
So go forth and write and have fun answering questions about yourself. I even give you the copyrights to my "nominate everyone who is reading this" speach.

(Also I just found out I have another award blog post that needs to be written so I hope you're enjoying this haha!)

Have a fabulous day.


  1. Great post! Aha I know what you mean with inspiring people: I always act very awkward when someone asks me that because it makes one seem sort of arrogant, I'd think. Anyway, I don't really have one either! ^0^ My hobby that my friends would think to be weird is probably blogging, to be honest! My heart just warms up when I get a new comment or follower! People are so fantastic sometimes! :) Ooh can't wait until the next post!

    1. Haha, so glad you enjoyed this. Also, I'm so very glad I have someone in the same boat as me who doesn't really have an inspiring person. Great to hear from you!

  2. ANSWER TWO is perfect xD and I totally agree with it.
    Looking forward to the next posts :D

    1. I'm SO GLAD you understand my feelings on that subject. I was very afraid no one would understand! Thanks for commenting as always! :D

  3. Ah, I know the feel of a new comment :D Congrats, I got you one too :D
    Um.. I hate supporting something and then get proven wrong, so I do my research beforehand. Oh, and when I'm certain that I'm failing and will be proved wrong any second, I change the topic :D

    1. Hahaha, I'm so glad someone understands the feeling of being wrong in an argument (and getting new comments). I'll definitely use your tactic and change the topic lol! :D

  4. I love new comments, too, although they do give me panic attacks sometimes when I've written a particularly ... honest? I don't know the word ... post, if that makes sense. Do you mind if I answer the questions here? My answers are pretty short.

    1. I don't know. Hmm ... maybe that should be the title.
    2. I don't enjoy political debates, to tell the truth.
    3. This joke isn't crummy at all but I love it so much that I've got to tell it. "I wondered why the ball was getting bigger and bigger. Then it hit me."
    4. It's my name.
    5. Um ... oh, man ... I don't watch Netflix.

    Well, I did the best I could!

    1. Thanks I enjoyed reading your answers! Also don't feel alone, if I've recently written a debatable or very honest post, my stomach squirms every time I see I have a new comment. I freak out for just a second hoping they're not going to disagree or think I'm being stupid, etc.

      Thanks for commenting! :D
