The Sunshine Blogger Award

I’ve seen a few of these going around, but I never expected to be nominated myself – especially since I’m still pretty new!

I’m honoured to have been nominated by Lizardin Bain, and I highly recommend you check out her blog – it’s stunningly presented and she writes some powerful, inspiring, and relatable pieces.

  1. Be polite, and thank the person who nominated you
  2. Answer the 11 question the blogger posed
  3. Nominate 11 bloggers and ask them 11 questions
  4. Display the Sunshine Blogger Award Logo
  5. List the rules


What is the funniest joke you know by heart?

We’ll we’ll we’ll… it’s autocorrect again.

(This one has to be written down to be effective, but I haven’t forgotten it since I first came across it!)

What kind of cult would you like to start? or why not?

I probably wouldn’t, because it sounds like a lot of work… but if I did decide to start a cult, it would be dedicated to the worship of Shetland Sheepdogs… because they are amazing and completely underrated. 

What celebrity would you rate as a perfect 10?

JB from GOT7 (sorry, kpop fan here! I honestly can’t think of any western celebrities off the top of my head.)

Which fictional character would be the most boring to meet in real life?

Hmm… Crabb or Goyle from Harry Potter probably, I mean it would be difficult to have any sort of intelligent conversation!

What are some things that sound like compliments but are actually insults?

  1. One day you’ll go far, and I hope you’ll stay there.
  2. You’re going to make some cats very happy some day.
  3. You have a great face for makeup.

What’s the closest thing to real magic?

Love. It’s powerful, can make people do crazy things, and no-one is completely certain of how it works. 

What is the craziest thing one of your teachers has done?

Okay, he wasn’t technically my teacher, but one of the History teachers at my old school was once teaching a battle scene (I think it was the Battle of Bosworth) and he decided to act out how Richard III died… by pretending to be shot and then staggering backwards. He was completely in character and accidentally stumbled out of the door, into the corridor, where he proceeded to slump against the wall and “die.” Unfortunately there was a student from another class approaching, and she thought the teacher was having a heart attack. She ran to get help and an ambulance was called. Despite the teacher’s protests, they were at the hospital before anyone realised there was nothing wrong with him.

What quote or saying do people spout but is complete BS?

“If it’s meant to happen, it’ll happen.”

BS. Nothing is “meant” to happen – if we want something, then we have to make it happen.

If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what question would you ask?

What is J.K.Rowling’s secret?

What’s the most useless talent you have?

I am quite adept at putting my foot in my mouth.

If animals could talk, which would be the rudest?

Goats. Or donkeys. No, definitely goats. I don’t know why, but they just have this look about them… you know?
