The Sunshine Blog Award

Good morning,  good afternoon, or goodnight, friends! If you’re going to sleep, wait a minute…don’t you want to get to know me a bit better? I know, ahah, I don’t talk a lot about myself, but when someone as sweet as Mahnoor nominates you for the Sunshine Blog Award…well. THANK YOU! 

the sunshine blog award

Nothing new here, some questions, some answers, and a whole lot of talking…or not. Let’s get to it, and hope you’ll enjoy it!

First thing that you do in the morning?

Hm, like a lot of people, I check my phone for texts.


Last thing before going to bed?

I read a few pages of the book I’m currently reading.

How well do you manage social life and the blog life?

My social life isn’t that busy, I guess, haha, so I’m handling it pretty well. Except for the freakouts at times, ahah.


What quality do you look for in a person?

I don’t really know, I guess it depends on the person you’re talking about, whether it’s a friend, a boyfriend, I don’t know. I really like honesty in people. I like people who can make me laugh. I like people with whom you can have a really interesting conversation.

Are you an Introvert or an Extrovert?

It depends on who I’m with, obviously. I don’t seem shy probably on here, but in real life, I really am a little turtle. Well, when I’m with people I don’t really know, at least.

How do come up with a blog post?

Well, Features are really a source of inspiration, one of the questions of this tag could spark an idea for a blog post! Sometimes I get one in the shower, ahah. Reading a book, reading other people blogs’ posts, thinking about blogging, just, well, ideas come that way, usually.


What do you want to be known for in the future?

Wow, that’ s such an interesting question…and I have NO idea how to answer this, haha. I guess I just want to me someone who can make someone else’s day, month, life? I just want to be remembered for how much I loved.

Any advice to your young ten year old self?

Ten years old?  Keep on reading those books, you’ll just keep on loving those even more.

Favorite/Dream travel destination?

My favorite destination forever has to be London. I really want to go to A LOT of places, but off the top of my head right now, I would say, Canada, the West Coast of the United States, Australia and New Zealand. Obviously those are so far away, ahah.


Do your friends and family know about your blog?

They do, well, my close family knows about it. My WONDERFUL sister helps me with it at times. I guess my friends don’t really know about it, and it doesn’t come up in a conversation.

Who is/are your favorite music artist?

I really am into Sia’s latest song right now, Freeze You Out. Like I can listen to it ten times in a row. Otherwise, I could say Taylor Swift is one of my favorite, The Veronicas as well.

What quality do YOU look for in a person? What is YOUR dream destination? I would love to get to know you guys a bit better, so let me know in comments! 💬

  1. Most of the questions are me 😂 but to be honest that doesn’t surprise me ❤ Like the first two for exemple. And the one with the destination. And the qualities you look for in a person. And… okay I’m going to stop right here 😂
    The other day I was watching a Buzzfeed video and discovered that I’m an extroverted introvert, let me explain haha. I’m very outgoing even with people I don’t know but at the end of the day it’s exhausting and I need some alone time and quiet to recharge.

    1. Haha, well this doesn’t surprise me either, we really are twins 😛
      Ohh, really? I didn’t know that was a thing, thank you for sharing this! I don’t know, I’m introvert when it comes to people I don’t know, but I’m extrovert as well, with people I do know, and on the blog, and ahah 😛 It’s so weird, these different personalities, 😛

      1. Hahaha yep ❤
        You’re welcome ! I didn’t know either until maybe 2 weeks ago, it was always strange to me how after spending a long time out with friends, I felt exhausted but now I know why haha!
        Yeah well I don’t think it’s that weird 😊 because once you’re comfortable with people you can let yourself go and on the blog, well, you’re talking about things that passionate you with people that share that passion and they’re not even in front of you so it’s a win win situation !

      2. Hahaha! That’s right, last time I tried (when HP and the cursed child was announced ) to fangirl with a friend with a friend who’s presumably a fan and her reaction was disappointing, so yeah never again 😂

  2. I’m definitely NOT shy on the internet. But am so introverted in real life. I try not to be, though. lol

    I wasn’t reading many books when I was ten. I would also tell myself to stop playing so many video games and read a damn book! Or at least split the time.

    Great post! I enjoyed reading all your answers and almost felt like answering all the questions on this comment haha.

    1. I try not to be as well, either, but it’s hard, ahah. I’m glad I can be myself on this little corner of the internet 🙂
      Thank you so, so much for your sweet comment! And oh YES, you should answer all of these questions, here, or on your blog, I am NOMINATING YOU officially, because you made me smile with your sweet comments the past few days, and you totally deserve it 🙂

  3. I told my family about my blog after I started spending more and more time on the internet because of it. I didn’t want them to think I’m doing something dodgy! I told my friends about it recently as a spur of the moment thing, but I’m pretty sure they will forget after a month hahahaha.
    I’m both! I think the term for that might be ambivert??? I have too much of a big mouth to be a introvert!
    Dream destination? Hmmm Tokyo? I just always wanted to visit such a busy, modern city!

    1. OHh, well that’s great, I think, talking about it can bring your family closer as well, because, well, they will see that you care a lot about something and put a lot of work into it, and well, another way to show your awesomeness 😛
      Ohh, Tokyo, that’s a great city, well, it seems like a great city, since I’ve never been there, ahah 🙂 THank you! ❤


  4. First thing I do in the morning is check my phone for Facebook messages, WordPress comments, anything like that. Sometimes even before my alarm goes off I’m seeing what I’ve missed while I’ve been asleep 😀
    Also I am a massive introvert so I can manage my blogging life and social life quite well because I don’t have much of the latter. And definitely come to London, although I may be biased because I live (near) there! My dream destination is pretty much everywhere in the world 🙂 but I would love to go to Japan, Thailand, Vietnam soon. I haven’t really been that side of the world yet!
    I loved this post, and I loved reading all you answers too!

      1. It’s mainly the messenger aspect of Facebook, I have numerous chat threads with my friends on there. I’m not a fan of Facebook either, I never post on it!
        That’s all right 😀 I literally want to see the whole world, I want to have stepped on every country there is! I guess Thailand will probably have to be my next stop 😀

      2. Nah I know what you mean, I get annoyed by people on Facebook all the time, and after a while it’s just ‘why am I even on this site’
        I’m not really a big social media person in general, at the moment my WordPress blog is all I have and all I update regularly 😀

      3. I’m just not the most open and social person in the world 🙂 and a lot of the time it’s stuff I’m not really interested in, stuff no one is probably interested in!
        At the moment I am literally only active on WordPress, but it’s a start I suppose! 😀

  5. Well, I can assure you that you are definitely acing the goal of being known for having and incredible amount of love for everyone! 😀 ❤
    I check my phone first thing in the morning as well, mostly for mails though lol
    And I am a total introvert, but I have learned to fake being an extrovert at times. Have you read Quiet by Susan Cain? I adore that book. It's non-fiction about introverts and extroverts and it sort of celebrates the former and felt really releasing in a way.

  6. Oh wow- that’s such a lovely answer to how do you want to be remembered. And I liked your answer for the qualities you look for in people- I’m a bit of a sap, so what really does it for me is kindness- little acts of kindness and kindness for no reason at all! 🙂

  7. This is nice ! Obviously we all want to get to know you better 🙂 My blog post strategy is basically the same as yours 🙂 I’m like you: extroverted and loud with people I know, but kind of quiet if I feel less familiar.

  8. This is the cutest blog tag! I really like it; so cheerful!

    And, gosh, qualities I look for in a person? I don’t really know what I look for, exactly, but I know what I DON’T look for; arrogance drives me up the wall, and I can barely stand to be around arrogant people.

    Thanks for stopping by Writing on a Vintage Typewriter!

  9. YES COME TO AUSTRALIA AND BE PARADED WITH GREATNESS 😉 OH GOD, dream destination? As in one? I CANNOT CHOOSE. There are just too many places that I NEED to get too! I would LOVE to go to London, Italy, Canada, Antarctica, Hawaii and Germany (EVERYWHERE) *sighs and pets map* ONE DAY. I would really LOVE to go to the snow (I have never seen the snow in my life) and just touch in and lay in it and feel good!

    I agree, I love people who make me laugh and have interesting conversations with me (OR BOTH!). I LOVE people who are nice and just have those good vibes! Hmmm, should I give you an example of one particular AWESOME person? YOU 🙂 (fellow awesome person, don’t stop doin’ it!)

    Great post! It was more than (REALLY) fun learning about you *scribbles everything into my notebook* I will keep learning about you MUHAHAHA. Ahem. Okay 🙂 Looking forward to your Second Chance Summer post *wink wink*

      4. It’s SO far away really, ahah, that’s too bad. But I won’t give up, just because it seems SO gorgeous there.
        Ahah yes, it’s kind of pretty, you should come one day ahah 😀 I’ll give you a tour, and when I come, you will, too! We’ll call that our WONDERFULLY CRAZY ADVENTURES 😛


  10. Oh Canada is beautiful! I definitely recommend going there! 🙂 We travelled through the country for two weeks and it was AMAZING. Definitely one of my favourite holidays, even though it was so long ago that I don’t remember everything haha. There’s so much to see and do, the nature is breathtaking, the people are nice, good food (very important :P)… Aaaah I really want to go back haha. I hope you get to go to all your dream destinations one day soon 😀 I really want to go to Japan one day, but I’m so scared that the language will be a huge barrier

    1. OH you went there? You’re so lucky! Which cities did you visit? You’re making me SO excited to go there, I swear, I CAN’T wait now, ahah.
      Oh, that’s what scares me in those places as well, they must speak English or something, but the signs and everything, it’s a whole other language, I would be so confused! But it has to be beautiful there!

      1. Toronto, Ottawa, Niagara Falls and some cities that I don’t remember sadly. Haha I hope you get to go soon 😀
        Yeah exactly! The signs and such are what worries me. Maybe I could plan everything ahead so that I won’t get lost haha. One day I will overcome my fear though!

  11. Oh gosh, I also used to listen to The Veronicas a lot, haha. And your relationship with you sister is so sweet! I’m an only child but I always wanted an older sister. A huge majority of my friends don’t know that I blog either. I think only like four people know? Same, it just never comes up in conversation. XD And honesty is such an important value to look for in friends/companions. Good choice! 🙂
