Walking on Sunshine

22 Apr

Well, not literally since it’s alternating between sunshine and heavy rain over here but I thought it might sound like a clever title, maybe not so much, but I don’t care. The alternate title would have been something like, Oh, look, I got the Sunshine Award, which is also boring.

A while back (I believe in the beginning of March) Onwindydays nominated me for the Sunshine Award and I was blown away because I didn’t think anyone would think my ramblings good and interesting enough, but Simon did and so I’m very grateful for that.

I put this post off for a while (see above) but today is as good a day as any to finally pass on the favor of spreading the sunshine.

The Sunshine Award is meant for “bloggers who are inspirational, and who have impacted your blogging or your life.”

The rules are as follows:

  • Include the award’s logo in a post or on your blog
  • Answer 10 questions about yourself
  • Nominate 10-12 other amazing bloggers (I also found rules that say 5 blogs, so I’m gonna stick with that since I don’t follow enough blogs to nominate 10)
  • Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs, letting them know they have been nominated
  • Share the love and link the person who nominated you.

First things first, the questions:

Favorite Color: Green!!!!

Favorite Animal: I love elephants. If my mom would let me keep one in our backyard I’d already have one but the thing is, they actually take up a lot of room (who would have known??)…nevertheless they are awesome. Have you ever looked at their feet? I find them truly fascinating :D

Favorite number:  13 because I was born on friday the 13th and I don’t believe all that superstition concerning that day.

Favorite non-alcoholic drink: Mezzomix (I don’t know if it is available all over the world under this name but in short it is a Fanta and Coke mix, well not one but THE best mix.

Prefer Facebook or Twitter?  Facebook cause I have more friends there but I like Twitter as well.

My passion:   Other than the TV and fast food addiction, I love to act. I’m a member of a outdoor theater group and we perform two different plays each year, one is for kids the other one for adults. This year I’m taking part in Peter Pan as a pirate! Har-har :-)

Prefer getting or giving presents:  Oh boy, both or neither. I can’t really decide, it depends on the person who is geving/receiving I guess.

Favorite pattern:  Waves…wait, is that even a pattern? I’m clueless.

Favorite day of the week:  Any day I can sleep in and the sky isn’t crashing down on me.

Favorite flower:  Gerbera, just like the flower in the award photo :-)

Now comes the hardest part, nominating other blogs.

Howtodateboys gives me insights into the dating world I never knew I was missing and keeps me wondering how she managed to date all the different types of boys she writes about.

Daughter of Cancer is the first blog I started to follow because her mom died of the same disease my mom has right now and her posts from that time reflect my feelings so well, especially on the days you ask yourself if the fight will be worth it or not. Every post has me on the verge of tears or even crying because her words hit pretty close to home, nonetheless I love to read them. Now she is a new mom and I wish her little family all the best!

This Labyrinth I Roam is written by my first fan. Hahaha, just kidding, but I enjoy her posts a lot!! Anju, as far as I can tell form her posts and some Twitter chats, is a great person, who is compassionate and funny, which makes her pretty awesome in my book.

Diary of a Living Girl started out as Diary of a Dying Girl which she was until last week. I’m extremely happy that she is not leaving the earth anytime soon, thanks to a cool robot surgery, because her posts are beautifully written and make me crave more.

Betwixt and Between was one of the first blogs to follow me. I am eternally grateful to Addie because she tagged me and thus let me come in contact with some fine bloggers whose posts I love to read.

    I’ve never been anywhere near an elephant for fear that it might stomp on me. And theater? I used to be part of it in high school. I miss it so so so much.

    Thank you and congratulations on the award, Miss Sunshine. :)

      Thank you :-)
      I guess I would be scared too, that an elephant would stomp on me, but I love them nevertheless. I don’t know what it is with me and big animals. I just prefer them over smaller ones. Even with dogs, I don’t like the small one’s you could put in your purse :D

      I love theater, which was kind of a surprise to me but it’s simply the best to stand in front of 900 children and they all cheer because of what you did on stage.

    Haha, born on friday the 13th huh! That’s pretty sweet :) And of course I find your blog interesting!! Turns out we have a lot in common the more I read through your posts :D As for an elephant…could you imagine cleaning up after it’s messes! Although it would be sweet to have one in the backyard haha.

      Thank you SO much! This really does mean a lot to me. Made me smile almost as much as reading your 10 things! :) You’re awesome! You really are!

      I know, elephants leave a lot of mess and me wanting one is more of a joke because unless I move into a zoo, it won’t ever be possible :D

      Cupitonians: You’re very welcome :-)
