August is here! I am excited, because september can’t start soon enough for me. I’m so excited about law school, as well as autumn to be here.
I was tagged by the lovely Jamie Lee Jenkins to do this Sunshine Blogger Award. Definitely go check out her blog if you’re into fitness and lifestyle related posts. Her recent post Things I’ve Learnt As An Intern is very interesting and valuable.
I don’t do tags very often, if you check out this blog semi regularly you know that. But this one was so nice and positive that I really wanted to do it!

Jamie’s 11 Questions:
Who is your biggest inspiration in the blogging world?
My biggest inspiration is definitely Cait from Paperfury. Not only does she always write quality blog posts and is it a joy to come back to her blog, she also managed to get a book deal at a super young age! I have yet to read her novel, but I’m super excited about it.
When you’re feeling down what is one thing that is guaranteed to make you smile?
It’s hard to pick one thing! Especially because as of lately, my life is going pretty well and I haven’t been feeling down a lot. For this one, I’m gonna go with the Brooklyn 99 TV show. That show always makes me laugh no matter what!
Summer or winter? Why?
Right now, I will say winter. But when winter happens, I will probably say summer! It has been incredibly hot in my part of the world in the past few weeks, and the drought has killed many plants and trees. I like sun as much as the next person, but this is a little too much. I fare the best in autumn!
What are three things you have learnt from blogging?
I have been blogging for a really long time (close to 10 years at this point). I have learnt to be disciplined because of blogging – posting regularly and fitting it in your schedule isn’t easy. I have also learnt to be proud my own space here on the internet. When I was younger I would dismiss my blog as a ”stupid hobby” or be afraid to tell people about it. Now I know that I’m a capable writer, and I’m proud of my blog and what I’ve accomplished. Last but not least, blogging has taught me that meeting people from the internet isn’t weird. I have met some of my greatest friends through blogging!
What are your three favorite things about yourself?
This is a tough one! I like my persistence. If I have a goal, I’m not one to give up on it. I’m also a very considerate person. When someone tells me their story, it’s like I can feel their emotions and in my work as a caregiver, I always try to be considerate of my clients. I also have a natural hunger for knowledge, and I’m curious about everything. I consider this one of my greatest assets.
Are you a dog person or a cat person?
I’m more of a cat person! Just because I feel like I can connect to cats more, and I like how independent they are. However, I love a lot of animals, dogs too! Something many people don’t know about me, is that I’m also a huge fish nerd.
What is your best childhood memory?
When I was a little kid my dad would take me and my sisters to a big, outdoor swimming pool. Those are definitely one of my best memories, because I just remember playing for hours on end without a worry in the world.
If you were hosting a dinner party and could invite 5 people, dead or alive, who would you invite?
Taylor Swift! She is my favorite artist that’s alive right now. I would also really love to talk to Terry Crews, Michelle Obama, Stephen King and Rosa Parks.
And what would you cook for them?
Goat Cheese Enchiladas? I love fresh goat cheese, so probably something with that.
What would your top tip be for practising self love?
Remembering that sometimes you need to do something even though you don’t feel like it, because it’s good for your mental or physical health. This includes exercise, sleeping early, cleaning the house and going to work. Also try to be kind to yourself! You don’t have to smash every single day.
What are your goals for the rest of 2018 and how can we help you smash them?
- Read 52 books. I am at 32 right now so I’m on track!
- Smash the first few months of law school. I want (and need) 60 credits in the first year, which is the maximum, so I will need to spend a ton of time on that.
- Go on holiday by myself. I’m not sure if this will happen this year, but I want to get away even if it’s just for a few days.
Now it’s time for my 11 questions!
- Why did you start blogging in the first place? Is it still the same reason?
- What is your favorite place to write?
- What’s the best book you read so far this year? Or the best movie you watched?
- Name a blog that inspires you?
