Lazy Sick Day + 500 Follower Q&A!✨

Hello all who reads. I’m not sure what time it is that you’re reading this but I’m typing this out at 10 PM. The day is basically over and I almost didn’t post at all. Why?

This morning I woke up feeling a little off and extremely sleepy. My boyfriend has been sick so last night he was tossing and turning, getting up because of sweating and coldness. This also caused me to wake up every time he did. Last week he went to the doctor and was told he had strep throat. They gave him a shot and said it would pass quicker that way, he also had to take 2 days off using up the last of his sick days. He seems to be better now. We’ll see how tonight goes. As for me, I really hope I’m not getting sick too. I’m usually the first so I’m surprised that it was him this time. However, I did get sick after eating my breakfast this morning…Yeah, came right up (no I am not pregnant) and I felt terrible. Im assuming it was just the sausage but I could be coming down with something as I’ve been sniffing and sneezing a lot lately. I’m sniffing now as I type. 

Since I wasn’t feeling well today I haven’t really been active or productive until about an hour ago. Today I was supposed to finish up my tasks from yesterday and have time with my friend. Well, we’re trying yet again tomorrow- maybe.

I just got done cleaning up after the guinea pigs and some dishes because no way I was doing it earlier. No worries everyone got fed! despite not wanting to do anything else.

I have a video for their channel still needing to be edited and uploaded. YouTubing is hard work I tell you, especially just starting out and doing other things too. Making a channel for my pets was basically a test/trial to see if I would actually like doing it and get some experience, then I would create a personal or blog YouTube account. 

So far, I’m definitely not ready for that but it’s still a consideration. I’m still interested. Do any of you have YouTube channels or plan on starting one?

Besides that, I was able to make time to watch the sunset. It didn’t require too much effort as everything else did. 

Here are a couple of tonight’s shots…

I can’t wait to have a car again so we can go somewhere to get better views. I could take a walk but even standing on my balcony taking the pictures is uncomfortable sometimes. Okay a lot of the time. I don’t know, I just don’t like people watching me take pictures or taking pictures of me lol. It makes me uncomfortable. Am I the only one? 

Usually I can get nice shots without stepping out, and sometimes I take them from the bedroom window. I’ll start to share them here more since some of you don’t have Instagram, where I post majority of them.

Anyway, I hope and let’s all hope that I do not get strep throat😩🙁

Or sick period. Let’s wake up feeling better!As you all know, or you may just be finding out- I recently hit the 500 follower mark, which was one of my goals for June. I said I would let you all know what I wanted to do to celebrate and decided I had to do something involving the number 5 lol (500 would probably be a little wild) so yesterday I posted 5 times! I think that’s my record so I was proud of that.

I also want to do a Q&A, I always love reading those and asking questions so I thought you all would love to ask some questions. I’d love to answer!

So go ahead, ask me questions in the comment section💕 

Think of the most basic questions or the most interesting, I only ask that you don’t ask where I am from or my first name✨

I will be answering them next Friday, the 23rd and of course I’ll have to deliver it in a FUN way😉

Let’s make it happen! I’ve got some nice ideas for this. Ask as many as you like✨

The Awesome Blogger Award✨

I’m feeling awesome at the moment☺️

I was nominated for the Awesome Blogger Award and this is the first time for this one- YAAAY:) Special thanks to Oriana from Oriana’s Notes for tagging me! This award was created by Maggie over at Dreaming of Guatemala, she has always wanted to create an award to acknowledge all the awesome blogs in this awesome blogging community!

Processed with Rookie Cam

 • Here are the rules of the tag :

1. Thank the person who nominated you
2. Include the reason behind the award
3. Include the banner in your post
4. Tag it under #awesomebloggeraward in the Reader
5. Answer the questions your nominator gave you
6. Nominate at least 5 awesome bloggers
7. Give your nominees 10 new questions to answer
8. Let your nominees know that they’ve been nominated

Now, I’m going to answer Oriana’s questions :

  1. Do your family and friends know about your blog ? They actually do not. I’ll tell them eventually. When I’m ready. I don’t expect the most support.
  2. Is there something for what you’d give up everything ? To have had an actual relationship with my mom and a good one at that yes, everything.
  3. How do you deal with stress and pressure ? I usually shut down from everything and everyone and focus on what I’m feeling and what I really want/need to do. Obviously I write too.
  4. What’s the best dish you can make ? Probably some type of breakfast lol for now.
  5. Do you have a favorite YouTuber ? I wouldn’t say I have a favorite. But maybe favorites. I watch SO many YouTube channels.
  6. Pizza vs Pasta ? Depends on the pasta. Pizza.
  7. Do you have a dream ? That one day I’ll be a well known positive influence through my writing and other creativity. Especially to my children someday.
  8. When you’re invited for a meal at someone else’s home, and there is something you hate on your plate, do you eat it ? No lol. Most people will say they aren’t really hungry or eat around it. Some people even throw it away turned over if it’s on paper plate. I’ve done all. I’ve even thrown something away in paper towel. I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings by getting sick in front of them or making disgusted faces because I don’t like the food. That would be worst than throwing it away in my opinion.
  9. What is your favorite outfit ? I don’t think I have a favorite outfit lol I did love my dress I wore to a Miley Cyrus concert a few years ago. I’m usually not a fan of wearing dresses.
  10. Where are you from ? The states. That’s all that gets to be known for now:) I’m the most private person I know.

The Versatile Blogger Award

I was nominated for the Versatile Blogger award (#2) by Nash who blogs at The Nash Tray. Special thank you to her because I am new to her blog so we don’t know each other well. I do know that we both love cats:) She’s a new blogger so please check her out and welcome her!

Rules:

  1. Thank the Blogger who nominated you.
  2. Nominate 10 other bloggers and inform them about the nomination.
  3. List 7 facts about yourself.

7 Facts: 

  1. If I ever get an orange kitten I’m naming her Sunshine! 🙂 I’ve decided. Unless something else comes to mind but in the future I do plan to get one more kitten.
  2. I just looked out the window, focused to think of more facts lol. I’ve done so many of these I don’t want to give away my whole life story before I write the book aha.
  3. I plan to write many songs, books, plays, and short films.
  4. This summer I want to write my own summer hit and share the lyrics with you all. (A post coming about that soon)
  5. When I was very young my favorite shows were Blues Clues, PowerPuff Girls, and Teletubbies (that show seems so weird thinking about it now lol.) Never cared for Barney.
  6. I had my first kiss in the 9th grade, with my current boyfriend. I’ve known him since middle school but we dated briefly, before I dated the guy from my first love/heartbreak story… and here we are again. I had a very interesting dating life in 9th grade now that I think about it lol.
  7. Senior year of high school, our psychology class took a field trip to work on some type of experiment/project. I forgot exactly what it was called but it was the best field trip ever because it was so fun and different. We went to a university, we had to walk around campus like college students and act strangely, do weird out of the norm type things and observe their reactions…Some people caught on because they’ve done the experiment before, some really believed in our acting skills lol. I wish I could remember everything and what I did UGH! My teacher and classmates said I was the most entertaining, and gave the best performance lol I don’t know where it came from because i’m usually very shy.

I Nominate Anyone Who Leaves A Comment On This Post:)

If you want to comment on any of my facts, or maybe you relate to some consider yourself nominated. You don’t HAVE to do it but why not share more facts to help your readers get to know you a little better?❤️

The Golden Blogger Pass!💖

It’s finally here! I’ve been working on this for about 2 weeks and I couldn’t decide if I wanted it to be an award, a challenge, a tag or what. So indecisive as usual. I was very nervous about sharing this with you all, checking it over and over to make sure it was exactly how I wanted. I guess I was being a bit of a perfectionist, and worrying about creating something many of you would like. It took me a while to come up with a name but it finally came to me so here we are, the first Golden Blogger Pass! 

Well, what is it?

Before we begin, I want to say that this is not about my favorite bloggers or what blogs I think are the best. If your blog is posted you are one of the bloggers (I only did 2) I have seen most in my notifications recently, leaving your lovely comments. I appreciate EVERYONE’S love/support❤️ but for this pass I only want to have 2-3 “nominees.”

TheGoldenBloggerPass

Creators Message/Message From Lee @GoldenPinkJournal

I created this “pass” as a way to engage with bloggers and help others find blogs they might be interested in. Now of course it can’t just be ANY blog, you can think of this like a special “invitation.” The only way to be invited is to be a frequent blogger. I didn’t want it to be exactly like the other amazing awards/tags here in the WordPress community already, but I also didn’t want it to be too different and difficult to understand. I put a lot of thought, time, and heart into this pass and it would really mean a lot to see it go far and have many bloggers participating. Please try not to pass to anyone it has already been passed to. If anyone can help me come up with a way of keeping track of this for everyone to see, please let me know.

Here are the rules:

  • Always include creators message & image
  • Thank the person you got the pass from
  • Answer the golden questions/tasks
  • Choose 2-3 bloggers to give the pass to (this person must be a frequent blogger with no less than 4 posts a month) and share link to their blogs
  • Post a screenshot of their blogs homepage. You can use mobile or desktop device. For desktop device try pressing the “Windows logo key + PrtScn/r. The file should automatically be saved to your pictures in a new folder titled “Screenshots” (if you are unable to screenshot for whatever reason, share a link to their most recent post)
  • Share link to a post of theirs that you recommend others to read. Give a brief description of that post or why you recommend that post.
  • Ask them each 1 unique question (about themselves or their blog)
  • Add “Golden Blogger Pass” to the tags when publishing

(I am going to also be answering them to start it off.  Please delete this note and my answers when you do yours. Your answers do not have to be as long as mine.)

  1. How long have you been blogging? I have been blogging since January 2017.
  2. How frequently do you post? Do you have a blogging schedule? Right now I do not have a set blogging schedule but I do post frequently. I’ve actually been posting daily lately.
  3. Have you ever been invited to anything special? Hmm, back in middle and high school, if you had perfect attendance for a certain amount of time or honor roll (grades all A’s and B’s) you’d get invited to a pizza or ice cream party. I was invited many times… I really wanted some pizza and ice cream! Lol.
  4. Would you make blogging your profession or is there something else you want to have as your career? I definitely would make blogging my profession. It’s something I really love doing, I have control over what I post, and it can help me with my growth as a writer. Some day I wish to publish my first book, or direct/produce a play/tv show.
  5. Post a link to your favorite post or the post with the most likes (of your own) and give a brief description about it: I couldn’t decide between A Writer’s Worst Enemy & Meet Izabelle so I chose them both. A Writer’s Worst Enemy is about writers block and I list almost 20 ways to take the enemy out! I’m positive you’ll find something that helps. I think this is one of my best written, well structured posts so please check it out. Meeting Izabelle, is a post where I am introducing my new cat and the story of how we got her. It had to be meant to be! You’ll have to read to know how.
  6. Tell us what type of posts you’re most likely to read/blogs you’re most likely to follow: I’m most likely to read and follow blogs that share similar interests with me. I really like inspirational posts, DIYs, Fashion, Lifestyle and many others as our blogging community is so diverse! I’ll follow any blog that shows support to my own, and has a nice clean layout with content that can capture and keep my attention.
  7. Give 1 great blogging tip/advice: Find your own voice and style and go with it! Don’t try to post what everyone else is posting, or mass follow people just to gain followers. You’re not really going to grow that way. People will notice when you have original content, and when you’re just trying to copy what’s trending at the moment. If you’re just mass following people, chances are half won’t follow back and the ones that do might not even read your posts. You need to have all those ghost followers for what reason? …(cue the crickets)

I am passing this pass to…???

Hello It’s Jo

Screenshot (2)

Living On My Own In My 20s is a post I would recommend you all reading on Jo’s blog. She gives a descriptive list of the things she has learned while living on her own, in her 20s. I Like this post and can relate to it since I recently got my own apartment for the first time, and I am 23 years old. I agree with majority of her list.

My Unique Question For You: Would you rather live in a mansion with 10 other people, or a small apartment alone?

Study Tips Now is the time everyone in school is testing, doing exams, and even getting ready for graduation for some. In light of that, I’ve linked Bea’s post giving great studying tips. So don’t worry if you have no clue where to begin or how to stay focused while studying because she’s got you covered!

My Unique Question For You: When did you decide to start your “Get To Know” blogger series, and how did you go about setting it up?

-I’m looking forward to seeing your responses and how far this pass can go. Take your time, and as always never feel obligated to do this. Let me know in the comments what you think about the pass and if you would be happy to accept if someone chooses you.-

Dawn Dagger Challenge

Good morning everyone! I’ve got a lot to do today but I’m going to start with this tag. I was tagged by the lovely Elsie to do this challenge so a special thanks to her:) Check out her blog, I’m sure you’ll want to follow.💖

Rules: 

  • Answer the questions given.
  • Give 10 questions for your nominees.
  • Tag 1-10 people!

 

Elsie’s Questions:

1. Did you have a favourite childhood toy? What was it and do you still have it?

I actually can’t remember having a favorite childhood toy, so I definitely don’t still have it. I did enjoy those Bratz doll heads, and I had this Littlest Pet Shop Digital Pet key chain toy. It was like a game on a key chain. I loved it.

2. Do you sometimes prefer animals to humans?

If the human seems pretty cringe and evil, probably lol.

3. What was the first thing you thought of when you woke up this morning?

The first thing I thought of when I woke up was what I would eat for breakfast. I was pretty hungry. I think I’ll have some waffles or oatmeal after this.

4. What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?

Honestly, I couldn’t say. I don’t think I would eat a lot of things considered to be “weird”

5. What three words first come into your mind when you think of your blog?

Pink, Inspiring, Creative

6. If you could meet anyone in the world that you haven’t met before who would it be?

I think I’ve answered this question before and so far it’s still the same. Jhene Aiko. That’s my girl lol. I can imagine the vibes now. She once tweeted back to me, and has liked a few of my tweets to her, it made my day so I know that actually meeting her would be epic.

7. Can you say “red lorry, yellow lorry” repeatedly without saying it wrong and do you know any other tongue twisters?

This was so fun to try lol. Yeah, try. Because I messed up the second time. The tongue twister I thought of is, “Sally sells seashells by the seashore.”

8. Has a song ever been playing over and over in your mind? What was it?

I can’t think of just one. Any song that I really love will be stuck in my head for a while, until I get over the feeling/situation, or until I find a new song.

9. If you were given the opportunity to go to Mars would you go?

I’ve always been interested in space, especially the stars and planets. I think I would be a bit nervous and scared but I would definitely consider going.

10. If you could travel anywhere right now, where would you go?

I really want to go to Hawaii. I haven’t traveled much, which I plan and hope do at some point in life. But I think I would *start* with Florida since it seems I’m one of the few who hasn’t been there yet.

*Questions to my nominees:

  1. What is your favorite part of day- Morning, Noon, or Night?
  2. What movie or tv show have you recently watched that you would recommend to others?
  3. Waffles or pancakes?
  4. Oatmeal or grits?
  5. What is the first flower name that comes to your mind?
  6. What was the last blog reward/tag you’ve received? before this one.
  7. Do you watch any talk shows? Would you guest host on one?
  8. What did you do on your 21st Birthday? If you aren’t 21 yet, what do you want to do?
  9. What is one thing you hope to accomplish before tomorrow morning?

The Cramm Award

Hello blog world! I have been nominated for the Cramm Award, by the beautiful Laura at Lauzies Lifestyle. This is my first time being nominated for this award so it is a special honor for me to do this post. Thank you Laura! I recommend you all visiting her blog if you haven’t already.✨

Rules:

  • Mention the person who created this award with a link
  • Mention the person(s) who nominated you
  • Share three things that motivate you to blog
  • Share three people who inspire you to blog
  • Share one thing you hope to do to improve the world
  • Answer your challenge question(s)
  • Nominate other bloggers and give them a fun challenge question

This award was created by Liv at theCramm.

Three things that motivate me to blog:

  • Inspiration that is all around the world. There are so many inspiring things in the world, so much going on. This motivates me to blog because I know there will always be something to write about.
  • Being able to inspire others! This is a big reason for me. I’ve experienced a lot in life, as most of us have but it always makes me feel good inside when I can help or inspire someone in whatever way, through something that I love doing.
  • Every single person that reads, and comments on my posts! You all motivate me to continue what i’m doing and knowing that I’m on the right path. If it weren’t for all of you, I wouldn’t feel the need to post daily, or as frequently as possible. This is why we should all support each other more and not just constantly like a post. No one is motivated to be consistent if they don’t feel like anyone is really reading. Let’s answer each others questions, give each other tips, or even just letting a person know you really enjoy their content… Just some way to let the person know you’ve actually read can really go a long way.

Three people who inspire me to blog:

  • Okay, I know this first one might sound a little conceited, but I inspire myself to blog. I don’t have friends and family around me who are interested in the same things that I am, which results in not much support from that end. Reading, writing, seeking truth and knowledge has always been what I’ve loved to do most, all of which I can do here. Everything I am truly interested in can be found in the blogging world. And honestly, my mind just always amazes me.
  • Again all of you that read and comment, everyone that I follow. I cant thank and appreciate you all enough. This community has some amazing bloggers! I consider some of you as actual friends now and I hope that continues to grow.
  • My boyfriend. He just wants me to do whatever makes me happy and keeps me calm lol. He especially wants me to keep up with writing so he’s all for it. Any time I’m stressed and I want to put everything down, he always encourages me to pick a pen back up.

One thing to improve the world:

It’s all about inspiration and motivation here! I hope to improve the world through spreading love and all things positive. By making sure I am kind to others, making sure that I love myself for who I am and accept people for who they are, by not putting others down. We are influenced by who and what are around us, what we watch on television and see or post on social media. If my words and actions can inspire just 10 people, maybe those 10 people can inspire 10 more. The more positive influences we have in the world, the better the world can be.✨

My nominees:

Victoria’s Bubble

Dreaming Of Guatemala

Reflection Of Des

The Blog With All The Jazz

Sit Back And Just Live

Colors Of My Life

Laura’s question to me: What was your favourite childhood dessert or treat?

My answer: I’ve always loved fresh baked brownies with vanilla ice cream, or chocolate chip cookies with vanilla ice cream. I still do!

Question to my nominees:

If you had to choose to not blog for a month, or not read/comment on any ones blog for a month which would you choose and why?

That’s it for this award. I hope to see my nominees answers, but as always you do not have to do this post if you don’t want to. I still think your blog deserves the award💖
