sunshine blogger award.

Yes, you read that right. Sunshine. If anyone who knew me in the flesh heard that I was chosen for anything with the word sunshine in it, they might collapse from hysterical laughter. I’m usually far more closely associated with dark clouds than sunshine. But I’m guessing there’s no award for that. 

Thank you for choosing me, Wandering Soul! Visit her blog and read her wonderful writing. Plus, she is, like, the nicest person ever.


I’ve seen lots of awards floating around and when I’m nominated, I try to accept and pass them all along. I’m not generally a fan of anything chain-letter-y. But these awards help us meet other bloggers and show appreciation for their work. How could I not pay it forward?

Here are my answers to Wandering Soul‘s questions:
What gives you inspiration in life?
Music. Certain songs just make me feel things and think things and dream things… and my imagination runs away. So music. And hot guys. My writing is often inspired by hot guys. 

What was your biggest challenge till date and how did you overcome it?
I admit it’s my struggle with depression and anxiety… and I haven’t yet overcome it. Some days I’m good — you’d never know I’ve been anything but good. But I may have been a total basketcase hours before or I may be one a few hours from now. I haven’t been able to ‘fix’ whatever dysfunction in my brain causes this… and I never see it coming… or going.

What message would you give to someone who is going through a tough time?
Try not to punch anyone. I know it would feel good but you’ll regret it. Probably. 

What is the one thing that makes you happiest?
Coffee. (I confess, the not-suitable-for-all-audiences version came to mind first.)


1. Thank the person/people who nominated you.
2. Answer the questions from your nominators.
3. Nominate other bloggers and give them eleven questions.
~ Like I mentioned before, this is to spread the love and I’m doing these awards so that we’ll meet interesting bloggers. Please do check out all of the blogs I nominated and follow them if you like.

My Nominees
When I read stuff from these bloggers, it makes me happy… so I guess that’s sunshine-y. I encourage everyone to read and follow these blogs!

Questions for my Nominees
1. If you were a superhero, which would you be and why?
2. What is your favorite ice cream flavor? (Or, if you don’t eat ice cream, what is your favorite dessert?)
3. Do you have as much trouble as I do coming up with questions for these things?
4. When did you last have a really good laugh and what made you laugh?
5. If you become famous, what will it be for?

(I interpreted the ‘eleven questions‘ rule very loosely.)

Thanks again! xo

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    Hey – an award is an award though, right ?


  3. Hey Sandra! Thank you so much for spreading the sunshine! I so appreciate the thought, however, my schedule doesn’t permit me the time to fully live up to these award requirements. I’m afraid I’ll have to decline. Your blog is awesome and you are sure to keep gaining followers with your wonderful stories and humor! Thanks again!
