The Sunshine Blogger Award


I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by An Anxious Gal. Thank you so much for thinking of me for this award! The Sunshine Blogger Award is a way to recognize bloggers who inspire positivity and creativity. I always aspire to be both of those things, so I really appreciate the recognition!

The rules for accepting the award are as follows:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers to receive the award and write them 11 new questions
  • Display the rules and the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post

An Anxious Gal’s questions for me:

If you could meet 1 history maker, living or dead, who would you choose and why?

Oh man, this is a tough one. Let’s see… I think I’m gonna go with Mary Shelley. I’ve mentioned before that I absolutely adore Frankenstein, and I love the story behind it just as much. Shelley was still a teenager when she started writing Frankenstein as a “let’s all try to write the best ghost story” challenge among friends, and today she’s known as the mother of science fiction. That’s too cool! Especially considering how little people thought of women writers in the early 19th century. Makin’ that history, girl!

What is your favourite month?

October. Since I live in the south, it’s always hot, but it normally starts cooling off a bit sometime in October, and I’m always thankful for cooler weather. Plus I just really love autumn. It’s such a pretty time of year, and the air feels so nice. And, of course, there’s Halloween and pumpkin carving and fall festivals and everything good in life!


What were your worries as a child?

How I would meet Billy Boyd (Pippin from the Lord of the Rings movies).

What movie genre do you prefer?

I love dark/black comedies, like In Bruges, Death at a Funeral, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, Shaun of the Dead, and Trainspotting. Comedies in general are great, but I love when they have darker themes attached to them or when they’re like, horror/comedy combos.

What was the last book you read?

I just finished The Hunger Games — you can read my review here!

Pineapple on pizza – yes or no?

Yes! Ham and pineapple pizza is my fave! I actually stopped typing this response just to go out and buy one. This gave me a craving!

What is your favourite drink, alcoholic or not?

Peppermint tea with honey. It’s so soothing and has such a nice cooling effect. Plus it’s great for tummy aches and sore throats.

Are you a dog person or a cat person?

I love both, but I’m a cat person all the way. And obviously I’m going to take this chance to show you guys my two kitties, Castle (the black one) and Meiko (the other one). Here’s a couple of my favorite shots of them:


Castle is the most well-behaved kitty I’ve ever known and is super soft and beautiful and perfect. Meiko’s a little butthole and is always getting into the trash and the paper towel rolls, but she’s so cute and she has her sweet moments. She also loves to sit on top of your shoulders like a little parrot.

Earth, Fire, Air, or Water?

Fire. Which might be explained by…

What is your Star/Zodiac sign?

Aries — born on April 12th!

What is your favourite colour?

Purple 💜

    1. Haha, thank you! Yeah, I started talking to my bf about pizza and it got to the point where I was just like, “okay, but seriously, I really need pizza now.” And it was delicious!

      Thank you!!! They are pretty cute 😀

  1. Congratulations and thanks for nominating me!! It’s 2AM and I just woke up, I have no idea why I’m on your blog. Your cats look adorable, and I really love how cats have different personalities. Mine just… I don’t know. One likes biting my neck and the other is just fat (she looks like Castle, but less fur and more fat!).


    1. Bahahaah, why are you just waking up at 2am??? lol yeah, it’s crazy how different they can be. I didn’t notice it when we got her, but Meiko has crazy eyes, and she. is. insane. She just never runs out of energy! Hahaha, biting your neck?? wtf!

      1. I slept at 8PM because I’ve been sleep-deprived. Studies + organising events aren’t a good combo 😦

        Is she a lot younger than Castle? YES biting my neck. She’d come up on the sofa behind me while I’m playing games, nuzzle up and… start nibbling. Good thing there’s never blood involved though hahaha.


      2. Mine’s just a bit more than a year, both were of the same litter but one of them is too much with her teefies (also, check out the subreddit teefies for cute pics!). Hopefully our kittens will calm down soon 😂


  2. Thank you very much for nominating me but i don’t accept nominations anymore. Appreciate it alot though! 😊


  3. Awww your kitties are super cute! ❤ Ahaha unbelievable, my favorite month is October (weather + pumpkins + NO freakin bugs + Halloween + the traditional rererere-watch of The nightmare before Christmas ❤ ) AND my favorite color is purple! And I love black comedies toooo, did you watch Seven Psychopaths, and Death becomes her, and do you love Fargo (I realize the accent is less on comedy but still)???

    I ❤ your answers and your questions, I can't wait to do this, thank you for nominating me and congratulations, you deserve it! 🙂


      1. Bugs are my mortal enemies, all of them! If you loved In Bruge, then check out Seven Psychopaths and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, because it’s the same director 🙂 I still need to watch the last one but I’m confident it’s awesomeee. Yay, I’ll post it on Monday, because tomorrow I’ll spend the whole day writing blog posts ahahah 😀


  4. Have you seen Strange Star? It’s supposed to be based on the creation of Frankenstein. I assume Mary Shelley appears as a character, but I don’t know. I have it on hold right now at the library.


  5. Tucker and Dale vs Evil is one of the funniest movies ever! The boyfriend and I watched it and loved it. It was under horror on Netflix and we thought it was one of the b rated horror films. It was not but man was it good anyway!


    1. I have not! I just read the synopsis and it sounds really interesting! Though I admit I’ve never read/seen Pride and Prejudice…

      She has both her eyes, but the small one was never fully developed when she was born. She doesn’t seem to have any problems seeing out of it, but it just doesn’t open more than it is in that pic. Aw, one-eyed furbabies are so cute! Poor babies ❤

      1. She’s got a perpetual wink going on 😄 Glad she can see out of it. Shadow has adapted well to being one-eyed. Being one-eyed myself, I have a special affection for them. And Shadow and I react the same way to stimuli.


      2. Haha, yes! I feel bad cause she has congestion problems, too, and sometimes her nose and eyes get really runny and it’s gotta be hard for her to see out of the little one, but she doesn’t act like it bothers her. We try to clean it up as best we can when it’s like that, but still, my poor kitty 😦 I love the name Shadow! Aw, you guys are like a team. 😀 That’s cool that you can understand your kitty better because of it!
