I've Got Sunshine... Award!

A couple days ago, I got my first blogger award, the Sunshine Blogger Award! Thank you to Chris Lam from What I Run Into. It's nice to know that someone enjoys my blog, haha.

So the first part of the award is answering the 10 questions she asked me:

1. Use a current or past TV show/movie title to describe your life right now.
Going the Distance. Not just in my relationship, but in every aspect of my life. 
2. Do you censor yourself on your blog? If yes, then to what extent?
I try not to, but I definitely do. I try to talk about both good and not so good aspects about my life, but I definitely don't disclose every second of my life. There are a few details that I'd prefer to talk about with close friends and in person, but if you ask me almost anything, I will definitely try my best to answer as honestly as possible. I want to talk about a number of different topics on my blog, even if people may disagree. 
3. Who is an underrated blogger in your opinion?
A month or so ago, I found fashion blogger Anuschka Rees through Pinterest, and I instantly got hooked on her blog! Her blog is so clean and minimalistic (that is her approach, after all) and her posts are very well-written! I think more people should be talking about her. 
4. What do you think your next profession/career will be? (The average American has 3 careers in their lifetime.)
I like to think that I can be a journalist or being my own boss, depending on where this blog will be by the time that I graduate. I love to write and tell stories so that would be ideal. If I'm not a writer, I'd probably be a worship leader at a church. 
5. Have you ever sexted? (Liars, all of you.)
Haha! No, I most definitely haven't. I definitely would not feel comfortable enough to take a picture in the nude. If I can't be naked around my roommate, I most definitely can't be naked for a picture. 
6. What is your most popular/most visited blog post? Link it!
Surprisingly, it's my post about all the little Pinterest-y projects I did for my dorm room about a month ago! You can read it here.
7. If you couldn’t live in the United States, what country would you move to?
I've thought about moving to Australia after graduating from college. Other than there, I'd love to try out Spain someday. The Philippines would be a choice for me too, when I'm much older. 
8. Give me a new man crush (or woman crush) that’s not mainstream. (I will subtract 1,000 points if you list Johnny Depp or any other “People’s Sexiest Man Alive.”)

Brett Davern- my first cutie!

Nolan Gerard Funk - He's not the best character
in the show, but his bad-boy-ness is hot

Well... I currently have two man crushes that I absolutely love! Both are from one of my favorite shows, Awkward. One of them is the adorable, Brett Davern! I've loved him from the first season, and that won't change any time soon. The other one is Nolan Gerard Funk, most notably from Glee, but I discovered him as the bad boy from Awkward. His character isn't too good for the show's protagonist, Jenna Hamilton, but I don't care I just think he's hot!
9. What is a funny video you’ve seen on the internet? Link it!
Okay, so my roommate has been showing me some really hilarious videos! But here's one that one of my friends showed me and it is now a thing that all my friends at home and school have been talking about! It's really stupid, but I got a good laugh out of it. 

10. What’s your mantra/philosophy that you live by? (Keeping Melissa’s question 10 because it’s awesome.)
I've never really stopped to think about this before, but I think it is "patience is a virtue." Yeah, I know it is so cliché, but I feel like it really applies to my life. My whole life I've been forced to wait for everything, and while I complained a lot about it, when I actually got what I waited for, it felt so worth waiting for. To me, being patient equals a victory in the end. I wish I had a cooler quote, but this quote is really the story of my life.

  1. Thank you so much for the nomination! Here is my post:

    I loved reading your responses! You're perfectly weird enough for me. By the way, a fox sounds like this:
    My favorite one is the Fox Cry (at 1:50) - probably because its the sound that babies usually make! I know, I'm an Animal Psych nerd...


    1. Thanks for posting Emma! Haha, and this video was just a stupid one to be funny. But yeah hahahaha


Talk to me! If you have something to say about this post, say it! I want to know. Happy commenting! [:
