Blog Update #1 – Sunshine Blogger Award

Miss Shodhaย had nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award back in February 2017. Actually it is Shwetha, spelt Shweta but isn’t Shodha so much better? (I’ve called her that since school).
She writes tiny tales, poetry, and literally ‘anything under the sun that has caught her attention’. This might be a good time to mention that I almost immediately get to know when she has read a post of mine, because my phone hangs up from the deluge of notifications. It’s time to return the favor ๐Ÿ˜› – check out her blogย My Random Ramblings. ๐Ÿ˜€

Anyway, if any of my readers (especially non-blogger friends) find the idea of virtual awards in the blogosphere ridiculous, it almost is. (An award would be nothing but a picture you would have to copypaste from your friend’s Award Post onto your own Acknowledgement post. Like so :ย sunshine-award1.jpg

Thankyou Shodha for this picture (yet another attempt at murdering my phone), and for neglecting my neglect and nominating me for a second Award. I loved answering your questions ๐Ÿ˜€

But then the idea is networking and references (linking back) and the like, you get the point, so it falls short atย almost.

The Rules.

  • Thank the person(s) who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog
  • Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post and/or on your blog

Shodha’s Questions :

1. Do you rememberย why and when you decided to be a blogger?

Of course I remember. I also wrote a post about itย just in case the blog ruined my life and I couldn’t recollect whose fault it was.

2. If it were so that you can listen to just one song on repeat for the rest of your life, which song would you choose?

Velikku Veluppan Kaalam or Neeraduvan.

3. Which Hogwarts house do you think you would be sorted out into? (Sorry if you arenโ€™t a Harry Potter fan!ย ๐Ÿ˜›ย I had to pay homage to my favourite book series! :D)

Ravenclaw ๐Ÿ˜€

4. Who is your favourite author?

Confession : After Paulo Coelho back in 8th, I haven’t followed any author/series religiously. But Khaled Hosseini can make anyone cry, so.

5. Which famous person do you wish you could be neighbours with?

Sherlock Holmes.

6. If you could bring a fictional character to life, who would it be? (Also, please do explain the reason why you chose them!)

Sherlock Holmes. Then be neighbors with him. Then ask Professor Watson if I can work with him on his blog.
I (too) hate myself for saying that, let’s not sabotage the plot.

7. If your blog had a playlist, what songs would be included?

Despacito, Iris, The Middle, Hawa Hawai, An Irish Party in Middle Class, Pinneyum Pinneyum,ย Love you Zindagi, Tonight I know, Up & Up, Hymn for the Weekend, Chinna Chinna Asai, Budapest, Hey Soul Sister, Did I Take this Question too Seriously?

8. Do you have a favourite book-to-film adaptation? If so, which one?

Any adaptation that I liked was only because I read the book after watching the movie, or because I never read the book I think. I can watch Chamber of Secrets over and over cos of the former.

9.ย If the world were to end tomorrow, what would you do today?

1.Have a panic attack
2.Remember everyone’s dying so it’s alright
3.Gather my family, which might take a while since it’s a big one now
4.Ring up friends one by one to tell them I was off Whatsapp during the last couple of months, sorry for no messages, I love you.
OH that was a good one, Shodha.

10.ย Name your favourite TV show and at least two reasons as to why you think itโ€™s awesome.

I hardly watch any these days, so favorite YouTuber? Ryan Higa. Original content. Doesn’t post bullshit even if that means losing out on views(=ads=revenue).

11.ย Whatโ€™s your greatest fear?

You know the incidents you feel guilty about thinking they were your fault? And you have nightmares about them? Just me? Okay. Greatest fear is coming to know they’re true.

Iย nominate :

Nipun –ย Road to Roadblock


Frank Prem

Laya –ย My Black Rusted Harp

Owning a dog with anxiety

Niall O’ Donnell

Sunith – Perceptions


My Questions:

1. Is there a country you have always wanted to visit, and if so, where?

2. What do you do on a rainy day?

3.ย What is your favorite book, or if you prefer, your favorite author?

4. What four people would you invite to a dinner party (contemporary, historical, or fictional)?

5.ย If you could live in a book/tv show/movie, which one would you pick and why?

6. How did you start blogging?

7. Whatโ€™s the story behind your blog name?

8. If you could talk to your younger self, what would you say?

9. Is there anything you would change/delete from your past?

10. Do you play an instrument?

11. If the world were to end tomorrow, what would you do today?

  1. I swear you’re gonna pay dearly for mutilating my lovely name the next time I see you ๐Ÿ˜› Wow, I would have never pegged you for someone who’d love to hear those old golden songs on repeat but then again you surprise me. ๐Ÿ˜› Aha Sherlock Holmes – nice choice! I love that you took that particular question seriously ๐Ÿ˜‚ Now don’t forget to thank me if the world does come to an end. Thanks to me, you’ve now got a plan in place. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ And you totally stole my question, Paro. ๐Ÿ˜›

    1. Hey, those songs are mentioned in so many of my write-ups I’m surprised it was a surprise to you ๐Ÿ˜€ Of course I’ll be indebted, thanking you would be on my list of Things to do After the World Ends!
      Yes I stole it but only because I loved your question, I don’t steal things I don’t love ๐Ÿ˜›

      1. I’m pretty sure that last statement is extremely paradoxical. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Wait, despacito, and all those songs were mentioned in many of your write-ups!? I must have missed some posts. That or I can’t seem to remember reading about it! Oh Paro, such gratitude. ๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ˜› It’s too bad that the world would have ended by then. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    2.Remember everyoneโ€™s dying so itโ€™s alright
    3.Gather my family, which might take a while since itโ€™s a big one now
    4.Ring up friends one by one to tell them I was off Whatsapp during the last couple of months, sorry for no messages, I love you.

    I guess everyone wonder about Blog Awards, but such answers make things better ๐Ÿ™‚

    PS: Point number two gives me mental peace too.
