Award ceremony – May 2019. Receiving and giving.

*NOMINATION NO. 1 and 2*

(See page 1 for thanks and intro.)

FROM: Dee, who writes about her outlook on life with a religious spin. She also shares various interpretations of Biblical prophesies. Lately, she started featuring fellow bloggers on her site, which is a great way to find like-minded people.

FROM: Tony, whose daily posts consist of humorous, yet often difficult conversation his consciousness has with subconsciousness. He reminds us that talking with ourselves is important to recognize what is going on inside our heads.


  • Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  • Answer the questions you were asked.
  • Nominate other blogs to receive the award and compose a set of questions for them.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award in your post.
  • Notify the nominees about it.


  1. Tell us something about yourself.
    I really suck at these questions.
    Growing up I disliked the outdoors.
    Now I enjoy it a lot.
    Is that good enough?
  2. Is there something you collect?
    Growing up I collected postcards. Now? Not so much. The only thing I can think of is memories. Those I gather in large quantities.ย 
  3. What is your favorite quote?
    I am not a fan of favorites, so I do not think I have one. Also, I like originality and it is unlike me to worship someone enough to remember and want to use their quotes.
  4. Have you ever punched someone in the face?
    Yes. However, it is not my favorite method of attack.
  5. Which place in the world would you like to visit?
    I truly wanted to visit one place and I did that, so now I throw my hands up in the air and see what happens.
  6. What makes you forget about everything around you?
    Great question. It depends on the situation. An enthralling book is definitely up there. Aside from that – good company and good times.
  7. Your favorite season and why?
    Spring always had a soft spot in my heart. Everything comes to life. We shed the cold and the dread and smile. However, the spring that I like is the warm one. So maybe the break of Spring/ Summer?
  8. Are you introvert or extravert?
    I believe I was born an extrovert. Life made me withdraw a little from society. While nowadays I am mostly introverted around most people, I still think of myself as an extrovert in the right circumstances.ย 
  9. Why in the 21st century with all the technology do we still have people who die because of lack of food and water?
    Because life is not fair. Because nothing is equal. Because we ultimately take care of ourselves before we take care of others. Different countries have different natural resources, are positioned in different landscapes, etc.ย 
  10. Have you ever donated something to someone who has less?
    Yes. I actually don’t think I know anyone who has not.
  11. Do you have a Boyfriend/Girlfriend, Wife/Husband?


  1. How often do you have nasty thoughts and what are they about?
    What are those nasty thoughts you are asking about?
  2. When was the last time you got into an argument with someone and what was the reason?
    This stumped me. I express my disapproval regularly, but I cannot remember anything serious enough to warrant an argument. I think it’s because of how I deal with things. I like them resolved there and then, without harboring negative emotions for forever.
  3. What is your opinion about death?
    Ummm… we die?
  4. How often do you argue with your own thoughts?
    Quite often. Well, I might not call it arguing, but questioning. It’s like one of the voices gets put on a stand and the other one questions it.
  5. What do you fantasize about?
    About being rich and not having to work.
  6. What would you like to achieve with your blog?
    A few things. I want to stir up a conversation. I want my posts to be thought-provoking. Of course, I would like to have a million subscribers. And one day, I would like this to be a platform that would aid sell my work.
  7. What excites you the most?
    A lot of things do. Travelling, select few people and fun activities.
  8. What does success mean to you?
    To me, success is a very broad subject. There are different markets in different fields. Being good at what I do, being happy with what I do and being rewarded for what I do are pretty good measures of success when it comes to work. As far as personal life is concerned, I would say – being happy, learning from mistakes and having no regrets.
  9. Who/what do you love the most?
    I think you can deduce that from my answers to previous questions.
  10. How would you describe your past?
    Meant to be.
  11. Which ones of your habits are the most hurtful for your future?
    I continuously work on anything that I think might hinder my progress. Unfortunately, there are things we cannot predict. I believe I got rid of some habits thinking they would hurt me, while now, I think they would have helped me and I shouldn’t have gotten rid of them.


  1. How do you handle conflict? Feel free to give us a play-by-play.
  2. What do most people overlook in you?
  3. Ideally, how long would you like to sleep per night?
  4. Are there any sports you partake in? Please list, if any.
  5. Do you like flavored tea? If so, do you have any favorite ones?
  6. Fish or chips? Please explain why.

      1. There are some whoโ€™s comments on posts are as absorbing as the post themselves. I look forward to his comments and yours and a few others as much as I do whatever list Iโ€™m reading ๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. Maybe you don’t have pingbacks enabled?
      I always rely on them. However, I know they don’t work 100% of the time. But I still choose not to go and tell those that nominate. I hope they see it for themselves. Plus, not everyone likes doing those, so I don’t want to pressure anyone.

  3. Congrats to Obinna! Your answer, “I believe I got rid of some habits thinking they would hurt me, while now, I think they would have helped me and I shouldnโ€™t have gotten rid of them.” got me thinking. I hadn’t looked at bad habits that way, to see how they have positive sides.

    1. I’m glad to hear. Even though my posts are full of my personality, some people say that they would like to see more of me. These posts allow me to do that without turning my blog into a lifestyle one (or whatever category that fits best).
      Thank you for such humbling words.


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