My acceptance of the Sunshine Award (!)

sunshine blogging award

So I was tagged by Tara Therese for the Sunshine Award. This is the first blogger award I’ve received, so I’m especially excited and very honored. Thanks so much, Tara!

What I’m feeling looks something like this:

These are the rules:
Give five facts about yourself.
Answer the previous blogger’s five questions.
Nominate five other bloggers.
Proudly display the badge.

5 facts about myself:

1. I’ll be learning Italian this year.
2. I am highly allergic to tree nuts.
3. My most recent favorite TV show is Psych.
4. I once wrote a very angry journal entry about losing my socks.
5. I prefer dark chocolate to milk chocolate.

Tara’s questions:

1. What career appeals to you most?

For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be a writer. When I was younger, I didn’t quite know what that meant. Now, I’ve narrowed it down: I’d like to be a YA novelist. I’m also particularly interested in working in publishing. So that’s what I’m going to college for. 🙂

2. Do you like to write book reviews?

Short answer: Yes, I enjoy writing book reviews. Long answer: When I finish reading a book, even if it’s a book I really loved, I will put off writing the review. Procrastination is never a good thing! By the time I get around to writing the review, I’ve already finished another book, and then the first book isn’t as fresh in my mind. So that can be quite annoying, but obviously that’s entirely my fault! But once I finally put fingers to the keyboard to write the review, I enjoy describing the book and why/why not I liked it.

3. Which of the four elements would you be?

Can I be all four? 😉

4. Do you like leopard prints?

Yes, I really do. I just don’t own anything in leopard print. I do, however, have an entire Pinterest board devoted to ‘prints,’ and so it features a good deal of leopard print. 🙂 You are welcome to check out my ‘prints’ Pinterest board.

5. What’s it like being an only child/having (a) sibling(s)?

I could write a book in response to this question. And maybe, one day, I will. I have a younger sister – we are 18 months apart – and she is both my best friend and worst enemy. 😉 Honestly, I love having a sibling. I think it would be so boring to be an only child. Having a sister can often be challenging, especially when we need the bathroom at the same time, or she doesn’t approve of my outfit and I don’t approve of her addiction to TV. (Luckily I have now turned her into a reading fiend!) But we love each other, and we’re always there for each other, and most days I’m glad we’re so close in age because we can talk about school and friends and teachers.

I nominate Emma @ Awkwordly Emma, Summer @ Blue Sky Bookshelf, and Shae @ Shae Has Left the Room.

These are my questions:

When and why did you start blogging?
What do you want to be?
Favorite book-to-movie adaptation?
Favorite quote from a favorite book?
Share one exciting thing you did this summer.
