Hello lovely people! I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award twice this week that too just when I completed one month of online blogging and I feel honoured to have impacted creative and lovely individuals through my blog, through my words. Hailing from a small country, I now realise that everyone is alike in the blogging world, everyone has a voice! About the Sunshine Blogger Award-Even I had no idea what it was all about! That called for some research;
●Thank the blogger who nominated you and link their blog so everyone can visit.
●Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated you.
●Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions.
●Notify the nominees by commenting on their blog post.
●List the rules and display the Award logo on your blog post.
I humbly thank Asfa Aftab Writes for having nominated me although I thought that I have not been blogging for long enough to be considered. Her poetry is seamless and calls for joyful reading. She definitely has a way with words. Check out her blog at http://asfaabtabwrites.wordpress.com/❤
1.Can you tell everyone what your blog is about and what to expect from your posts?
My blog is basically about things, tiny thoughts that we easily shrug off rather than pondering upon and I enjoy expressing that through poetry or essays.
-All that we are is the result of what we have thought.-
2. If you were to ever write an Autobiography, what would the title be and why?
My limited success; a rags to hand towels story! Haha😂. The title says it all and somehow, I would manage to have a picture of me on the cover, in a thinking pose.😋
3. Who inspires you in life?
Many people inspire me but the ones who inspire me the most are the ones who unknowingly instil in me some kind of motivation to never regress to their standard of living.
4.If you had to disappear and start a whole new life, what would you want your new life to look like?
I haven’t really given it much of a thought but I think I can put myself in the shoes of a prisoner, who went to jail on false charges, but with determination, made his way from a jailer to a lawyer to represent the voiceless. How dramatic!
5.What are your best qualities according to you?
Every time I accomplish something, a nice deed, I have this small kind of notepad in my brain where I list all of them. Afterwards, I add them all up and show myself and others obviously how righteous I am. Waaiitt, is that even a quality?! Haha😂😂
6. If magic was real, what spell would you learn first?
I would learn how to go invisible and teleport myself. I’d spend my day walking around and discovering new places. I would shamelessly budge into other people’s conversations while silently working out my own opinions! But most importantly, I would steal luscious food from lavish restaurants and give it to the panhandlers waiting outside their doors the whole day but still going to sleep with a rumbling tummy-sort of an invisible Robin Hood.
7.What would the box with all your 2019 goals look like?
A DIY carton box with tea and coffee stains fancied with some glitter here and there but firmly held together with Pattex (very strong glue). If you get what I mean!😅
8.Do you think that aliens exist?
Yes! When I was a kiddo, I loved to watch sci-fi movies with UFO scenes. My favourite cartoon character was ET. But if we dive into the scientific gobbledegook, I think it would be slightly naïve to believe that we are the only one out of thousands of planets to inherit life. Given that life on Earth took around 4.5 billion years to go from emergence to intelligence, it seems likely that alien life will be either millions of years behind us or ahead of us. In the latter case, the only persisting loophole is that why would a race that advanced would want to come here?👽👽
9. If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?
This is just what I do at night instead of sleep.😂😂
10.What is the first thing you notice about a person?
I usually I’m quick to notice accessories that I do not entertain myself like dark nail polish or cakey makeup. I might be labelled as an ‘’internalised misogynist’’ but I can just tell that there are some things that I am just not gonna like in an individual. Still need to improve on that.
11. What is your favourite season and why?
Here, in Mauritius, we have only two seasons; summer and winter. I like summer mostly. I hate the mosquitoes and the suppressing heat lol. But, I really love the fact that the days are so much longer yaayyy!😁
Thank you so much @Aclumsyteenager for nominating me. Aclumsyteenager effectively creates the illusions through the simple yet profound words used. Very talented with a fine sense of humour! I recommend checking out the posts at https://3amendeavors.wordpress.com❤
1.Why exactly did you start blogging?
Why exactly? For some stupid pretentious reason like everyone else! Lol no😅
To get those stupid voices in my head to shut up, maybe? But they just won’t. The more I pay attention to them, the more they have to say.
I write to have tangible stories. Sure, I could keep them in my head, constantly buzzing around and available whenever I daydream, but there’s something more rewarding about having physical/digital copies. I thoroughly enjoy the freedom of making up a story that goes wherever I want it to.
2. Which is your favourite genre to write about?
I have not really figured it out yet. I have written essays and argumentative stuff but poetry is not as bad as I expected it to be!
3. Name a book you loved and why.
There are good books and there are ‘not so good’ books. But I don’t have a favourite. Oh yes😕. Just because they are all thick wads of ink-covered paper doesn’t mean that they are comparable or rankable against each other. Now, don’t misconstrue what I mean. I love books. I’ve been transported, moved, informed, horrified, thrilled, disgusted, engrossed, stimulated and bored by all sorts of books (See poem Boon In Book). But I don’t have a favourite. Nevertheless, I still loovee children’s books tho no matter how many times I’ve read them haha.😂😻
4. If you had to introduce yourself in 2 lines?
I do not really know what I am doing here.
So, I’m just gonna stand next to you so I look like I know someone, okay?
5. Has blogging/writing helped you over the time? How?
It’s been only a month since I am blogging but writing is my passion. I have a hard time disciplining myself into writing and I think starting and keeping an online blog might be a good way to motivate oneself as well as conveying one’s message to a wide expanse of audience.
6. What can you live without for a day: food or music?
To be honest, neither! I’m afraid I can’t keep a food or music fast! Food can be anywhere and music can be anything, can even be in the sounds of nature. The temptation to resist it all is beyond me!😋
7. Pick one again: FRIENDS or Game of Thrones?
I have not watched either. But I’ve heard that FRIENDS is ‘aesthetically more pleasing’. So I would choose FRIENDS over Games of Thrones.
8. A superpower you wish you had?
You won’t believe but I actually have the ability to eat a powdered coconut covered pudding without getting powdered coconut all over me. I call it my ‘’mediocre power’’.😂
But on a serious note, I wish I had the superpower to fly!
9. Name a behaviour or thing that annoys you the most.
I hate that sound people make when biting their nails. Irritates me to the core! Ugghh!
10.Who would you pick to be with if you’re gonna be stuck in a room for an entire day?
Depends on the options I am left with!
Well, I might pick an unarmed burglar because then he won’t be able to escape. HA HA HA. I would then get the time to call the police and get him arrested or why not persuade him to quit his habits and lead a decent life.
11.Any comments or suggestions for @Aclumsyteenager to improve?
I think you are already doing fabulous! I do not think I’m really suited to advise but the mission of blogs like ours is to create a strong community of writers who can network with each other, support each other and have healthy discussions. So yeah! Keep on reading until you get the rhythm and the pattern of the words real easily. You are doing great! Good luck xD
