Thank you so much to Tracy at http://ohwhatapain.wordpress.com/ for the nomination. What a lovely surprise from a lovely person! Her blog is very well written and inspiring to all those who live with chronic pain and manage to retain a sense of humour! Cannot recommend enough.
I am honoured to receive a Sunshine Award. It continues to astonish me that anyone even reads my random little thoughts on life. I decided to start this blog as a way of working through the confusing situations I find myself in as a young woman trying to fight a chronic condition while also striving for a somewhat ‘normal’ life.
Here are the rules:
If you are nominated you must include the link in a blog, linking to the person/blog that nominated you. You must answer some questions and nominate 10 fellow bloggers and link their blogs in your post. Let the people you have nominated know that you have nominated them!
Here are the questions:
1. Who is your favourite philosopher?
Controversially, my favourite philosopher has to be Walt Disney. Strange, yes, but this is the man who brought us such gems as
“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”
2. What is your favourite number?
3. What is your favourite animal?
I have a fondness for penguins. Many due to the Penguin of Death who can kill you in any one of 412 different ways. I have quite a large collection of his memorabilia.
4. What are your facebook and twitter ?
How boring but I keep my facebook and twitter separate from my blog, which is also why my name doesn’t appear here either. Just for the reason that I use this blog to be 100% honest with myself whereas with twitter I am always conscious of who knows me and reads it.
5. What is your favourite time of day?
I’d have to say 9pm. I have a rule that I don’t study past 9pm so that my chill out time. The best tv programmes are usually on at that time.
6. What was your favourite vacation?
A few years ago, I went to Paris with my friend. It was a spur of the moment, post break-up holiday and we did the whole thing for less than £100. I discovered my knack for discount holidaying and we managed to squeeze every possible tourist activity into our 4 day break. Plus, I got my photo taken with Capt Jack Sparrow in Disneyland. 🙂
7. What is your favourite physical activity?
I’m not a major fan of physical activity but I have slight talent in archery (which I count as a sport). I also love dance games and remain unbeaten within my family in Wii dancing games.
8. What is your favourite non-alcoholic drink?
Chocolate milkshake every time. I once ordered one during a uni society meal at a posh Italian place and was applauded by my fellow diners.
9. What is your favourite flower?
Tulips or giant daisies. Or anything bright pink.
10. What is your passion?
Religious History! 🙂
