The Sunshine Blogger Award

I have been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Catwing.  Thank you!  

It’s very similar to other tags, but here are the rules anyway:

The Rules:

  1. Answer eleven questions.
  2. Nominate other bloggers.
  3. Give them eleven questions to answer. 

How would you describe sunshine without saying yellow?

(I’m bad at description.  So don’t laugh.)  When a storm pulls back, and the clouds roll away, the sun streams through the trees renewing everything in light.  It feels fresh and new and happy.  It bathes everything in golden.  It gives life and love.

What is the happiest thing you can think of right now?

Running through fields at night under the stars with someone I love.

Do you prefer riding a horse or a bike? Why?

Horse.  I’ve only ridden a horse a few times as I am forbidden from riding the “animals of death and injury.”  And since anything you can’t have becomes unreasonably attractive, horse.

If you were one of the dragons from How To Train your Dragon which would you be? You can’t be Toothless. Or a night fury. *laughs* Got ya. :3

What?  No Night Fury??  But, but, that’s the best one?!  I am a Night Fury.  If I have to choose though, it would be the Monstrous Nightmare because it sounds cool.

If you could travel back in time to any time without creating any sort of time catastrophe when and where would you go?

I would be a pirate queen.  Something about open seas appeals to me.  I’d steal from the rich and bad merchants and give my spoils to the poor a la female Robin Hood.  I guess that’s about the 1500’s.  I’m not picky.  

Have you ever thought about the possibly that people see colors differently? (eg. your green looks like my blue)

Yes.  It’s like the dress color question.

If you could meet two fictional characters (one a hero, the other a villain [or at least thought of as a villain]) while being shipwrecked on an island who would they be?

Percy Jackson because then I wouldn’t have to be shipwrecked anymore.  Hades, from Disney’s Hercules.  (Oops, two Greek mythology based characters.)  Hades is sarcastic and very realistic, and I feel his pain XD. 

What is your favorite scent? What color would you pair it with?

I’ve never thought of this before?  I guess my favorite smell is when it’s a dark, kinda deep summer day and it’s thundering in distance.    There are clouds covering the whole sky, but all color is very concentrated.  It’s a smell like honeysuckle and rain and earth.   I’d pair it with a deep purple.

What is your favorite bible verse?

Psalm 19: 1-4

Butterflies or caterpillars?

Caterpillars are full of potential.  But butterflies show that the caterpillar has made it and they’re more beautiful than caterpillars.

What is your favorite part about blogging?

It’s kind of an outlet for creative and philosophical musings.  I get to put whatever I want on it.  Almost no one I know in real life knows I have this blog, so it’s a bit of a safe place to put my short stories, articles, art, and random posts without people I know finding out.  Also the blogging community is pretty great and supportive.

My questions:

  1. How many notebooks do you own and how many of them have writing in them?
  2. Write one of those lovely concept things about how you’d like to see yourself in the future.

    ☆ dm me : @gabriellaelman for business inquires! ☆

    for example

  3. Describe North, East, South, and West in terms of people.
  4. Do you believe in soulmates?
  5. Weird question, answer any way you choose: How many feelings do you feel in a day?
  6. Pineapples or Watermelon?
  7. Favorite show or book series at the moment?
  8.  Sea or Space?
  9. Do you believe in aliens? 😛
  10. What’s the weirdest nickname you or someone else has been given?
  11. Could you live as an immortal?


I have to nominate people so I nominate:

Wysteria at

Cas at

Piper at

Joy at

Sponge (but not really) at

You don’t have to answer the questions if you don’t want to. 🙂


Have a lovely week!

  3. That is a good description of sunshine. Haha, Toothless! He might be my favorite dragon. Ooh, being a pirate queen would be a very interesting life. I love your questions! 4) Short answer: no. 6) Pineapples! 7) I just started a Kdrama (Korean Drama) with my friend called Goblin. We’ve only watched the first episode, but it was SO GOOD.

  4. I love your answers! The Percy Jackson one made me laugh. Smart thinking there. 😉 And your questions are really neat too! I am honored that you nominated me! (I do exist? What?) I have been nominated twice for this tag and I will try to squeeze both of them into one post, so I probably won’t answer every question, but I will definitely do some of them! Thanks again!

  5. Aww this was fun! I’d love to answer those questions. Can I steal this tag from you Aster? I think it would be fun to do in my blog. 😀

    Yeah, the dress thing… I see black and blue. I was shocked when I saw the picture of what the other group of people see. 0.0

      • Of course! 😆 My blog is I’ll probably do the tag next week. Thank you!

        Right? So weird. And I heard that we also taste things different. Like I’ll taste a strawberry, and so will you, and to us it taste like strawberries, be to each of us it taste differently. It’s so confusing. XD
