Who is the one person that is the sunshine in your life?

I’m really close to my writing partner (hence our decision to write together!) so I have to say HER…my BFF!

PENNA: A Vintage Typewriter-Inspired Bluetooth Keyboard - Design Milk

You’ve probably seen me mention her a couple times on here as I’ve loosened up about talking about my own writing… She’s really honest and forthright and tells me how it is… she’s my greatest cheerleader when I need it… plus she reads many of my posts for me! She’s the best sounding board as our skills don’t overlap and mesh nicely.

Do you prefer all happy movies, or occasional sad movies?

hopeful gif - - Yahoo Image Search ResultsI prefer HOPEFUL movies… I don’t mind if they are all bubbly and happily ever after or sad and tragic but I want to end on a high note… NOT on a depressing one…

I call it the “I want to kill myself” feeling… I’m not trying to make light of suicide AT ALL but as someone who struggles with depression I am ALWAYS trying to stay on top of how I FEEL. When we know how we feel we know when we are TOO DOWN and NEED HELP! I don’t need entertainment that heightens these negative emotions of helplessness and hopelessness…

What is the one food that always makes you happy?

yum gif - - Yahoo Image Search ResultsRight now its Funyuns! Hahhhahahha. But this changes… during Easter I’m happy to see chocolate covered marshmallow eggs. Sometimes its nutty things. As you can see they are ALL foods with trace minerals… so feed the feeling a little and move on!

What is the sunshine on your blog?

This was an incredibly difficult question as I wasn’t even sure what I was supposed to put… Truly I try to make each and every post I write sunshine-y… I’m really pro positive attitude so I really dislike when I’m feeling down and I don’t really like that to come through in my comments or my posts. So maybe my attitude?! I want my blog to be an uplifting place where we can fangirl, talk about story and learn from each other!!

What is your favorite holiday? wacky “fun” day?

I tackled my favorite holiday in another post so I didn’t really want to rehash that again so soon… There are these wacky days like speak like a pirate day and national pet day that people are always celebrating… wouldn’t it be fun to share your favorite? Click the link above if you need a list to help you choose…

Mine is… well actually I couldn’t just choose one! I couldn’t shake that today (Nov 26) is National Cake Day!! I know, what?! So have some cake to celebrate!! I also LOVE National Siblings Day on April 10th! I love my siblings…

What is one thing you love about yourself?

I’m SUPER passionate!! Hahhaha. If you’ve EVER read a post by me then you probably would agree that it comes through rather intensely (at least that is what I’ve been told!) I do try to approach everything I do at MAXIMUM velocity… I want to do the BEST I can and even if I fall short I want to know I gave it my all.

Rather like Hermione actually…

What is one think you love about the blogging community?

One thing that I truly love is its diversity!

YA book covers - - Yahoo Image Search Results

Just as books are becoming more diverse I think you’ll find the community is already diverse!! We can learn so much from each other’s opinions and even when we don’t agree can still appreciate their POV. And then there is ALL that we agree on!! Diversity truly makes the world a place to explore… just as we explore the book blogging community!!

What is the one book that made you smile the most?

1606890515745753There is no time limitation on this one and since I’m going to be writing my TOP BOOKS for 2017 soon I decided to hit up book pre-2017… And I decided on FANGIRL! (Well Eleanor and Park caused the same reaction… that Rainbow Rowell!)

PSS. I’m not sure I’m capable of just picking one… #easybloggerproblems

Where is your corner of sunshine in your home?

My little corner of sunshine is my desk… I share my apartment with several other people and so we have a common area that we all share… It’s comfy and everyone is really nice but THE DESK is MY area and everyone knows to keep out of it… It’s not quite as clean as this picture because I love piles… but yeah… it’s just a nook tucked away.

What is your favorite color or colors?

Purple and those colors in the same tones… much like my banner above!

What is the one movie that always makes you happy?

arrival movie - - Yahoo Image Search Results

Movies like Arrival make me happy. They are twisty and smart with a woman at the center of things… She takes her future into her hands and chooses! Nothing is forgone because she’s going to fight…

It took me a little while to get into the movie but once I did I was totally captured! I really need to write a review for this one…


Ever After - A Cinderella Story

 

A couple oldies but goodies, the type of movie you stream on Netflix late at night are Ever After and Coyote Ugly

They seem a little like romance vices you should be ashamed of but at the same time can’t help curling up and watching anyway!

Yes, they are the same as the ones I did! I love how cheery and positive they are… your answers can change even if you’ve done these same ones in the past… because we’re always changing and growing!!Question Mark

  1. Your spot is super pretty ❤ I always wanted something like this, but I live with my own space… and it's really good for me. I'm an introvert and I feel like I need a lot of time and space for me. But goes by period. By the way, the colors of the walls is amazing. MIne are just white but I put picture and art prints everywhere XD

  2. Oh Dani, thanks so much for this nomination! Everything about it made me smile! Your movies are some of my favorites and now I feel like I want to go have a movie marathon. I thought I had a blog post planned but I’m postponing it for this instead tomorrow. I’m so glad I can bring sunshine to your corner of the world and I hope to continue to do so! 😁 ☀️

  3. Thanks so much for the tag Dani! 😀 I really loved the questions you answered so I am so thrilled you’ve passed them forwards because they’re just really positive and I can’t wait to answer them myself! 🙂
    I actually knew before reading your post that today was National Cake Day (I’m subscribed to a website that emails me what each day celebrates) but I didn’t celebrate by eating any cake. Oh well, maybe next year. 😀 Also Rainbow Rowell is one of those authors who makes me smile too. I had the biggest grin on my face reading Carry On because I loved that book so much.
    Great answers, and again thanks for the tag! 😀 ❤

    1. Thanks Beth!! I’m glad you enjoyed the questions, I will look forward to reading your answers if you ever do them 😉 I still need to read Attachments and Landline by Rainbow Rowell but I heard really GREAT things about Attachments recently so I think I NEED to dive back into her books again… ❤

  4. First of all WOW I love your header for this!! I love what you said about hopeful movies and completely relate there!! And I totally think your blog is a fun and uplifting place 😀 I really want to see arrival- I’ve heard so many good things 😀 And who doesn’t love oldie but goodies like Ever After? Thank you so much for tagging me!! And I absolutely love how cheery these questions were, so I’m glad you (mostly 😉 ) didn’t change them!

    1. Thanks Orangutan!! I’m glad I mostly didn’t change them too! ❤ You're compliment warms my heart!! Fun and uplifting are adjectives that I LOVE ❤ ❤ ❤ YAY for Ever After!! And I hope you see Arrival, it is a treat and I was so puzzled at first but I love ALL the showing…

  5. Oh lovely answers, Dani, and thank you so, so much for the nomination, that’s so sweet of you ❤ ❤ I really feel like your blog is filled with happiness and positivity, everytime I read one of your posts, I find myself smiling, reading about your latest fangirling or the books you're reading or just, everything. I love seeing your passion in each post, it is amazing. ❤
    Eleanor and Park made me smile so, so much as well ❤ And Coyote Ugly, LOVE that movie ahah 🙂

    1. Awww, that is the best compliment Marie *heart eyes* I am rather passionate, aren’t I?! Hahahaha. ❤ ❤ ❤ OOOOOHHH a Coyote Ugly fan, that's so great! It's such a vice but I love it… ❤ And you are very welcome, I just wanted you to know I felt your sunshine too 🙂 😉
