  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.


  1. Do you believe in star signs?
    Yes, and no. If one looks hard enough, one will find truth in many places. There is plenty of the Zodiac sign info that does not pertain to me. However, there is a bit of stuff that does.
  2. Who is your best-friend and why?
    Cliche, but my partner, because they know and accept me for me. Also, my sibling, because they know my deepest, darkest secrets.
  3. What flower best represents you?
    What an interesting question… I am not sure, but I’ve done quite a bit of thinking about carnivorous plants lately, so I’d say one of those.
  4. What is your favorite YA book?
    The one I just wrote this month. I really hope it will see the light of day soon.
  5. What scares you?
    Not being happy with myself, and regret.
  6. If you could choose one thing to change about the world, what would it be?
    I’d make opportunities more prevalent for all.
  7. What would you say to 100 year old you (if you are still alive at that age)?
    You did it!
  8. What does honesty mean to you?
    It means telling the truth. Telling what happened, telling how you feel, etc. No matter what feelings it hurts.


  1. How long have you been blogging?
    About a year and a half.
  2. Do your friends and family support you in this?
    My family/ friends don’t really know.
  3. Which is your favorite time of the day?
    Definitely the evening.
  4. What would be your dream vacation?
    I really need to come up with an answer to this. I used to have one for decades, but I finally achieved it. I know it would involve great company. Someone I know always wanted to go to the Rio Carnival. Maybe I would accompany them. Or do the bull running through the streets of Spain…
  5. What genre of movies you like best?
    Comedies and thrillers.
  6. What do you wake up to?
    My alarm, and recently, a boiling tea kettle.
  7. Are you a morning person?
    No. Not at all!
  8. What motivates you?
    I motivate myself. I want more. I want to do better. So I push myself.
  9. How do you think your friends see you?
    As someone they can rely on, someone spontaneous and daring.
  10. What would be your idea for saving the environment from pollution?
    I am big on public transportation. Find a way to reduce the amount of cars. There is no way every single person needs a car.
  11. Happy or peaceful, what is more important to you?
    Fascinating question. To me, they go hand in hand. Being peaceful makes me happy. However, I can be happy and not be peaceful.


(I think I skipped the nominations last time around, so I had to make up for it this time.)


















  1. What scares you?
  2. If you could guarantee living until you’re 100 years old, would you?

  1. Whenever I see these award posts, I ask the question to Jasper. I like hearing what he’d answers so I get to know him better.

    So, number 5 of the questions you answered:
    “What scares you”
    He: “change

    Number 6: “if you could change….”
    And we bursted out in laughter! 😅

    I like your questions. I will try to do this one!

    1. I think that’s a fantastic idea. I might even have to try it myself.

      Jasper scares me. When I was answering the scare question, “change” immediately popped into my brain. I’m not sure why, because it doesn’t really scare me. Some change can be good. But I guess it does make me uneasy, especially when I’m skeptical about it.

      I look forward to reading it!


      1. I think it’s a good way to get to know someone better and she how much you’re alike.

        For me it’s the small changes that make me uncomfortable. A different brand of coffee or taking a different route to work. Things that wouldn’t bother Jasper at all.
        But larger things like the move is where I was the brave one. Although it doesn’t feel like bravery to me, but something I work proactively one or am excited about.
        It’s funny.
        What are you more comfortable with, small or large changes?

        1. I had to think about it. A different brand of coffee, or a new route to work don’t bother me. However, the new WP editor does. New software annoys me. But I do get used to it after a while.

          As for bigger change, it stressed me out more. However, I am able to handle it properly. I know when it’s time to freak out, and time to get my act together and just make things happen.


  2. Congrats on your awards. I don’t like cars as transportation either. I understand it’s necessary because not everyone lives comfortably where everything is accessible within walking distance or by subway/train, and sometimes driving can cut down on the commute time to some places. I can see that side of it though I probably will never learn how to drive. I am just too used to the subway or walking and where I live doesn’t require driving to be a must in order to get around.

    1. See, that’s what I’ve been used to my whole life – public transportation’s convenience. However, recently, I moved to a city that is so spread out that it’s hard to find proper connections. So I have to drive daily.

Hmm? What did you say? I did not hear ya.
