Thank you to The Spooky Red Head for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger award! She does fascinating lists about a huge range of subject which are really fun to read! I always find myself learning something new! Here is a fun place to start if you haven’t seen her blog already! I liked this one a lot!
The rules for this award are as follows:
– Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you for the blog post and link back to their blog
– Answer the 11 questions the blogger(s) asked you
– Nominate new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions
– List the rules and display the Sunshine Award Logo in your post
1. Do you have any comfort foods?
No none at all. I never snack in between meals. But I do feel very comfortable eating things I like such as pizza!
One day my friend said he was having pizza for dinner and I said I was jealous. Then he said if I can put in the effort to walk to his house at the correct time he would give me a slice of pizza. Of course I took him up on this offer, stole two slices of pizza and had ice cream as well! I was looking for an excuse to write about that story so here it is!
2. Fish or hamsters?
Fish, I think they taste way better.
3. What’s a sure-fire way to cheer you up?
Really dumb puns and writing blog posts. Then theirs reading spam comments which probably cheer me up too much and I need to find a sure fire way to bring me down again.
4. What’s your proudest achievement?
I have no idea. Maybe getting 8 A* in GCSE? I don’t think I’m that proud of it though.
5. Do you have any obsessions?
Of course. Blogging, anime, games, food, sleep, life and I guess revision really. Oddly having way less time for anything because of revision has increased my work output. When I’m pressed for time I will spend all day doing nothing else but blogging and revision.
6. If you could only pick between eating chocolate or ice-cream for the rest of your life, which would you choose?
Ice cream, it has more water content so I’m more likely to not die eating it. Then I came back here the next day to edit this post because I ran out of time yesterday and realised it was eat, you can drink whatever you want. So I would put chocolate because I like it more and I can get water from other sources!
7. Do you have any strange fears?
Not off the top of my head. In high pressure situations I tend to worry about simple things and need to check over and over again to make sure it’s correct. Like I have to test the door is locked quite a few times before I’m happy to walk away.
8. What’s your dressing style? (e.g. preppy, grunge, casual)
I have no style! I wear jeans and fairly plain T-shirts unless I’m not seeing anyone in the day where I wear a nerdy T-shirt instead. It’s more casual and it’s nice. Just to give you an idea I don’t know what Preppy and Grunge mean.
9. What’s your favourite type of monster?
It has to be the brachidiyos from monster hunter. It’s so fun to play against and has really useful upgrades once you win!
10. How long have you been blogging for?
Way too long. My brain should be completely empty by now but it’s not!
11. Any secret talents that we should know about?
Yeah but if I told you they wouldn’t be secret. I’ll tell you three. I can juggle, edit videos well and card count (learned a few days ago). That’s all you get! Don’t tell anyone!
Alright onto the nominations. These nominations go out to the kings! The legends! And people I like a lot! My most frequent commenters who I feel deserve this greatly. These guys are all brilliant, you should be following all of them. (And obviously Redhead as well but she nominated me so I’m not going to nominate her again) I also want to shout out some new bloggers that I’ve found because I think they’re cool as well.
I think there are meant be be 11 nominations but there are lots of people I’ve found recently who I want to give the award too, so deal with it, I like these guys! Also if your name is on this list you HAVE to do it, no excuses! I WILL KNOW…
Shadowcat99 – The Top commenter besides me, I’ve had many great discussions with her and greatly enjoyed them. You have 98 comments, so close to 100! Recently I’ve loved her Ranma 1/2 and Fruits basket impressions post.
Zainou – I love his style of posts! He’s thorough and analytical, I like him a lot. He also has a taste for old OVA’s and TV anime’s which is shared by me so I love those posts. You’ve got to read his legend of the galatic heroes posts. Then watch the show. Also where’s that episode 3 review? It’s such a good episode! If you don’t want to write I want to write it for you because I love that episode so much and I think it needs to exist!
Karandi – I can’t keep up with seasonal anime, and it only just occured to me now that I could watch all these show vicariously through reading her reviews… But I like her top tens and features. The features in particular have a lot of effort put into them and I can really see the passion in the ideas she brings forward. Her OWLS blog tour post was a really good take on bleach’s soul society and brought back some great memories.
KingDylbag13 – If anyone has been a motivator for me to continue blogging it’s KingDylbag because it feels like he’s solved blogging. He can write very short posts but they’re all either funny or interesting. Because of this his posts are very easy to read and also a fun time as you will always find something to like. I’d start here if you want to see what I mean.
Lethargic Ramblings – I was particularly impressed with Leth’s arguments in defence of light novel adaptations and made me think again about my position of them. He also has interesting posts about the rest of the anime season which is why I like him. I also only found him a few days ago so I’m looking forward to what’s coming next!
A Nerdy Perspective – She has great reviews and even though I only found her recently I’ve greatly enjoyed the anime discussions that we’ve been having. The best review I’ve seen is the one I found her through, the watamote review and I found her take on one of my favourite anime’s really great.
LitaKino – I really like everything Lita is doing. She has a great YouTube channel, recommends blog posts she likes in blog a rama’s and has even shouted me out a few times, so she obviously has good taste. Then there was the feedback post to help creators which is a valuable resource which you should see!
Arthifis – I got into Arthifis recently and have found most of his posts entertaining except for the “hottest boys” posts which really aren’t meant for me to read anyway. I found the recent post about getting google views interesting and very helpful!
Timeforwriting11 – TFW writes a lot about LBTQ and often applies it to anime. So it’s learning about something I have no idea about through a medium I know very well! It’s really interesting. I particularly liked the Shinsekai Yori post because I liked thinking about a part of the show I never would have paid any attention too otherwise.
And there you go, I hope you check these guys out if you don’t know who each other are! Also that statement that you have to write a post is obviously not true. I would just love to see it.
Now for the 11 questions!
- What is your attitude towards telling other people about your blog?
- What is a really obscure anime/manga/thing that only you like and want other people to check out?
- Do you have any obsessions?
- Do you have any fashion tips?
- What’s your favourite activity to do in the real world? Watching anime doesn’t count.
- What is the most valuable thing you’ve lost?
- What subject at school did/do you really hate?
- Have you ever tried to learn Japanese for anime?
- What’s the biggest amount of trouble you’ve ever gotten into? Also keep it light and don’t bring in your huge list of criminal records… (Joke because I don’t know all of you that well yet)
- What’s the worst thing happening in anime right now?
- Whats the best thing happening in anime right now?
Thanks for reading everyone! I hope you have a great day!
