The Sunshine Blogger Award



Thank you so much to Heather, who tagged me for the The Sunshine Blogger Award! I redesigned the banner to fit my blog, but you can grab the original here if you so desire.

Rules:
Thank the blogger who nominated you for the award.
Share 7 facts or things about yourself.
Nominate 5 bloggers that you admire.

7 Facts:
I read quickly, sometimes I have to go back and reread a paragraph because my brain can't keep up with my eyes.

While I like reading, and writing, I can't see myself doing it for the rest of my life, which is why I don't plan to study English at university.

I consume at least two cups of real, black coffee everyday. This does not concern me. It does seem to concern other people.

I enjoy a wide range of sports, but mostly Horseback riding and Football (Soccer).

I enjoy a wide range of music, but rock is the genre I always come back to (Imagine Dragons, Arctic Monkeys, Fall out Boy, The Killers, Foals, OneRepublic, Bastille and Twenty One Pilots are a starting point).

TV shows are Supernatural, The 100, Sherlock and Daredevil. I don't have the time to keep up with them during school, so I end up binge watching them during the holidays.

Winter is my favorite season. I like puddles, clear nights and purple rain clouds.

Opal Nominates:
You! Because if you're reading her blog then she admires (and thanks) you.

What TV shows do you watch? Are you a fast reader? Do you consume coffee? What kind of music do you like? Any suggestions for TV shows/music for me?

  1. I definitely relate to your second fact. People who see me reading all the time pretty much always assume that I want to study English or be a writer, but I just can't see myself doing that at all! And for music, I already listen to a lot of the artists you recommended, but your list reminded me that I somehow STILL haven't listened to Twenty One Pilots or Arctic Monkeys. I need to get to that soon.

    1. Glad I'm not alone in that!
      Yay for simular music tastes! Twenty One Pilots or Arctic Monkeys are life :)

  2. I definitely feel you on the "brain can't keep up with my eyes" thing!
    FALL OUT BOY IS BRILLIANT. What's your favorite album? I love Save Rock and Roll.
    Sherlock and winter are excellent as well. You get an A+ for your general taste in things.

  3. *high-fives for Sherlock and OneRepublic and Imagine Dragons* You have a great taste in stuff. (Although I don't like Twenty One Pilots because of the rap. Do they have any non-rap songs? I LOVE Tear in my Heart.) And I agree with not studying English in university. I think if I studied English then I'd grow to dislike it.

    1. *high fives* They have a few non rap songs, but it's not really their style to not do rap :)

      Same! Like even just this year, which is my last year of school, I'm starting to like it less.

  4. How come you don't see yourself reading and writing for the rest of your life? Maybe writing but not reading? Are you busy? Or going to be busy?

    I'm not a fast reader. When I try to read quickly, I don't remember what I have read.

    Coffee? Naaaah.

    I noticed that you wrote Football instead of soccer. *high five* Then I remembered that you are from New Zealand? Or somewhere around that area? I imagined your voice as one with an American accent.

    Music? Mainly CCM - Lauren Daigle, Moriah Peters, Francesca Batisletti and more. Also songs in other languages (Stromae and a bit of Kpop.)

    TV shows? I usually don't watch tv. The tv shows I like are Masterchef US and Canada. I prefer to watch YouTube and Kdramas.

    I have accepted your tag! *grins* Somewhat Reserved

    1. I don't know?? Like I enjoy writing and stuff but I don't really like what I write. I can't imagine it being a job, because it's like my hobby.
      New Zealand, yep! :)

      Yay!

    1. Yay! But it sucks you haven't done it in so long :/
      All the Arctic Monkey's are awesome, but AM is the best album, I think.
