I need your lovin’, like the sunshine…

I am excited and honored to announce that I have been nominated for my second bog award! In addition to basking in the rays from the Sunshine Award, I am now feeling the love of the Liebster! My sincere thanks to dear Stella, for the warm nomination. I respect you and am deeply moved by your posts, and am certainly sending the love back at ya!

So the rules this time are that I have to answer 10 random questions from the person who nominated me. Here goes:

1. Why did you start blogging?

I started this blog as part of an English Writing course I was taking in college. I used it for my assignments and tried to network a bit in the blogging world. Then I used it as a journal when I was studying abroad, and eventually abandoned it. I revisited and reinvented it starting from this New Year, as one of my resolutions. I even tried to do Daily Prompts and attempted the Zero-To-Hero challenge, which definitely helped invigorate my blogging.

2. What is your favorite quote?

I have so many. “Everything happens for a reason.” “When a door closes, a window opens.” “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” I think these are among my top ones, and you can probably tell there’s a theme here.

3. If i told you that you had to perform in a talent show tomorrow, what would you use as your talent?

Dance. Maybe even improv dance.

4. What is at the top of your bucket list of things to do before you die?

Again, so many…Change someone’s life for the better. Become a holistic practitioner. Travel to all 7 continents. Mother a child.

5. Who is your hero/mentor in your life?

The Nanny.  As for non-fictional people: Paulo Coelho; Joshua Rosenthal; Alicia Silverstone.

6. What is your favorite season?

Spring.

7. Do you have any pets?

Yes, a Persian smoky-colored fluffy cat.

8. What is your sign and do you believe in horoscopes?

Pisces; to an extent. I think there is truth behind the patterns and compatibility, but there are exceptions to every rule.

9. If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

To heal people.

10. Where do you do most of your writing?

On my laptop, at the kitchen table. Or whenever I can sneak it in at work.

And, to spread the love, the Liebster awardees have to nominate 10 blogs with less than 200 followers. Here are my nominees:
