The Sunshine Blogger Award | THIS IS THE LAST POST ABOUT AWARDS I PROMISE

sunshine

Oh my goodness, I’m so bad at this award thing. I was nominated for it practically EONS ago, but…. *hides*

(you think I’m kidding, but I was literally nominated SIX MONTHS AGO, why am I like this :’))

Anyways, sending all the virtual hugs and kisses to Steph @ Lost: Purple Quill and Maram @ She Reads Past Midnight for their lovely nominations. You MUST immediately hop on over to their blogs and immerse yourself in their fabulousness! Seriously, I demand it.

**SIDE NOTE: Reading over this, I feel like I was in a very cynical mood when I wrote it at the beginning of September. XD


The Rules

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  2. Answer the 11 questions your nominator has given you.
  3. Nominate 11 other people and give them 11 new questions to answer.
  4. List the rules and display the award.

What would you do if you were invisible for a day?

I would probably spend the entire day scaring people? I know, I know, I have all the mental maturity of a five-year-old XD

(IT WOULD BE SO FUNNY THOUGH DON’T EVEN LIE)


What was your favorite movie as a child?

Sleeping Beauty. I can still relate to her. The sleeping part, I mean, not the beauty part.

(Also, in case you haven’t noticed, my FAVORITE COLOR OF ALL TIME is pink, and her dress was pink, so in my little child brain, pink = Sleeping Beauty = best princess everrrr.)

Also also, just a quick but extremely valuable tidbit of advice: if you are an innocent little human like me, STAY AS FAR AWAY FROM THE ANNE RICE BOOKS AS POSSIBLE. If you don’t want to become forever traumatized and have your sprinkles-and-sunshine childhood princess dreams torn into miserable little shreds, JUST DON’T EVER LOOK AT THOSE BOOKS, DON’T TOUCH THOSE BOOKS, DON’T SMELL THOSE BOOKS. Just… don’t. DON’T. DON’T.*

*DISCLAIMER: I don’t mean to insult that genre, of course—to each their own—but I cannot emphasize how much those first few pages scarred me. I don’t even know how I got it in the first place? I never did view Sleeping Beauty the same way again.


What is your favorite kind of blog post to write?

Hmmmm, probably the really random ones I write up in the wee hours of the morning. There’s just something about extreme sleep deprivation that really taps into your creative side!


If you could commission any author to write a book for you, who would you choose?

Shakespeare!! I want my life story to be turned into an epic play. Admittedly, it would probably consist of me alternating between drinking massive amounts of boba and sobbing into my pillow. Not to mention he would probably have me murdered dramatically by the end of the first act?

Oh, mine poor and shriveled heart. I wanteth to readeth all the books, or else I wilt weep.


Is there a talent or skill you don’t have, but which you did?

Life in general, to be honest. *cries*


What is your least favorite book?

Image result for shade gif

Ohhhhhh, do I got a rant. How am I going to choose?? There’s literally so many.*

But I’ll have to say The Kiss of Deception because personally, I found it about as appealing as black licorice slathered in cheese, dunked in mayonnaise. (Literally the three foods I hate most in the world.) Reader, if you enjoyed that book in the least, please just casually scroll over this answer!!

The protagonist, Lia, was unnecessarily whiny and spent more time moaning about not being kissed than worrying about her perilous situation. HELLO? An assassin is after you. You’ve SOMEHOW managed to run away from your kingdom, don’t you have better things to think about? (I put “SOMEHOW” because THIS GIRL IS SO STUPID, I have idea how she managed to do it without getting caught.)

And don’t get me started on the “love triangle”. There’s actually a moment in the story when the two “love interests” compete in a competition of manliness to indirectly vie for Lia’s luuuuv. Why anyone would want Lia’s love is beyond me, because she is just about one of the blandest characters I’ve ever read about.

*I know, my blog is such a place of mutual love and positivity


Any random subject/fact/phenomenon that fascinate you?

Haenyeo, the women of the sea. Such a fascinating culture!


What was your favorite birthday?

My favorite birthday? Hmm, I really can’t say, because my birthdays usually consist of me hunching over a laptop, desperately trying to type up my paper on time because procrastination sucks, kids, and you should never do it!


What kind of music do you like to listen to?

I listen to all kinds! Let me tell you though, I am constantly judged for my music choices. (#ProudSwiftie) I will now admit WITHOUT SHAME that my latest playing-on-repeat-until-I-get-sick-and-tired-of-it obsessions are ALL of the songs from the newest Fall Out Boy album, which, by the way, is ICONIC.


What book have you ALWAYS meant to get to, but haven’t yet?

SO MANY. My middle name is basically “I PROMISE I’LL READ THIS SOON AHA :-)”. The “:-)” emoticon represents the fake reassuring smile I plaster onto my face when I say this.*

Buuuut the first thing that comes to mind is any of Victoria Schwab’s books. I’m fashionably late to everything in life, including books, so I need to hop onto that Schwab train ASAP—her books make up 50% of my Goodreads feed at any given time in the day. Everyone I know is fawning over her, so needless to say, my expectations are sky-high.

this is how I expect to feel after reading Schwab’s books, I WANT TO BE EMOTIONALLY WRECKED, BRING IT ON

 

*I never do end up reading it : )


If you could relive a day in your past, what would it be?

I WANT TO BE A FETUS AGAIN. As in, inside of my mom’s stomach. I wonder how it was like? Peaceful, I bet.

  1. Ah I love your answers! Okay seriously, I as well always get judged for my music tastes. I really will listen to anything, but my favorite things to listen to are cheesy pop songs, I admit it, and so am also a #ProudSwiftie. And my friends are the super cool alternative rock or rap music listeners so needless to say they don’t like when I get the aux.

  2. Okay, I’m definitely going to turn into that really annoying fan who always leaves comments and raves about your blog, but, like, girl, this post was ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS and I cannot wait to start writing it out!! ❤ ❤ ❤ I think this'll be my third Sunshine Blogger nomination? I can't imagine people think I'm that sunshine-y.
    Also, I would totally join you in scaring people for a day if we were invisible. You're right, it would be hilarious.

    • *blushes profusely* are you kidding me, I’m an even bigger fan of you?? I can’t wait to read the post!! and daaaang, that’s a lot of sunshine for one person (but I’m not surprised <3).

      YES it's a plan, once we become invisible we must take over the world with our scaring abilities

  3. I had two older brothers, so so don’t remember watching a lot of Disney movies. Except for the Little Mermaid which my brother liked… I was so sick of watching it and to this day skip the songs when they come on the pandora kids playlist.
    I go to bed at 10:30 every night, hoping that consistency will combat insomnia. That and cutting down on caffeine or not napping seems to help a little.

    I am glad you came back, I have missed your sunshine-y posts.

  5. Thanks so much for the nomination, I can’t wait to answer the questions you set. 🙂 Also great post and great answers to the questions you were set! I am a massive fan of Fall Out Boy, I only recently got my hands on their MANIA album yesterday evening but ever since then I’ve been playing it non stop, I could probably sing the songs all from memory that’s how much I’ve listened to it in a day! 🙂
    Also, and I know this probably isn’t helping given it’s already on your list but I’m a huge fan of V.E. Schwab so if you find the time I’d highly recommend her books. In my opinion they’re amazing so I don’t think you’d regret picking them up! 😀
    Great post, and again thanks for the nomination! 😀 ❤

    • thank you so much for the kind words, my heart is now swelling with validation ❤

      YES, finally someone who loved their newest album! I suspect that I was the only person in the entire country to like "Young & Menace" 😛

      V.E. Schwab's books are definitelyyy super high on my TBR, and I'm so stoked to start reading them—I've heard so much fabulous things!

      (also, no problem, your reviews are always such a delight to read!!)

  7. Omg being invisible and scaring people is 10/10 the best way to spend the day??! That would be soooo funny. xD And reminiscent of Harry Potter and his Invisibility Cloak and that’s a dream come true okay. I can totally relate to the sleeping part of Sleeping Beauty too 😂 That’s the best part?? Honestly. UM HANNAH WHY HAVEN’T YOU READ V.E. SCHWAB’S BOOKS. *chases after you to attack (nicely)* Also I’m so happy YOU’RE BACK YAY! This was a great post. 😄

  8. i’ve heard great things about kiss of deception but from what you said about the main character, i probably wouldn’t like it haha. i hate it when the mc is more concerned about their romance compared to the life and death situation they are currently facing, which happens A LOT in YA. i am also fascinated with haenyeo too, i’m so sad that it is a fading tradition…

    • ohmygod, you’re like the first person who knows about haenyeo!! they have SUCH a fascinating history, and i also find it so sad that their traditions are fading. hopefully we’ll be able to keep their culture alive. ):

      and YES it’s so annoying whenever that happens! you’re about to die, stop worrying about who you’re going to kiss next?!

  10. XD This is snarky and I love it. See? Keep it up. Amazing stuff.

    My favorite Disney Princess is Ariel from The Little Mermaid. Growing up, I wanted to be a snarky independent woman who could sing. And who else has red hair? No one. Also, I hate to burst your bubble, but Aurora’s dress is *blue* in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. It’s only pink during the two moments the fairies are fighting over the dress color. Heh. Don’t kill me…
