Hey guys! Happy Friday, I hope you’re staying warm. It snowed here today, and I am very upset about it. In order to pretend like it’s nice outside, I decided today would be the perfect day to do the sunshine blogger award! I was tagged for The Sunshine Blogger Award by WindowsToWorlds! Thank you so much for the nomination! I did do this tag before, so don’t be surprised if some of my questions get asked again (I’m not THAT creative).

When did you start blogging?
I kind of answered this before, but I started in college. I was a sophomore (so like 19) taking a technology class for my major, and in that we had to run a blog for a set period of time.
Why did you start blogging? What made you?
LOL I did just answer this above, my bad! I started because I had to for my class. It was like 1/5 of my final grade.
What’s your favourite part of being in the blogosphere?
I like that I can interact with people, and it’s not hard to find a blog centering on any of my favorite subjects. Also that I can go through posts as fast as I want.
What genres of music do you listen to? Any favourite artists/songs?
I listen to pretty much everything to a degree. I lived in a city that had cheap concerts every weekend, and I’m a big festival lover, so I listen to pretty much everything. Some genres are purely seasonal, and a few aren’t. I listen to a lot of EDM, alternative, and boy bands. I feel like those are some weird groupings lol.
What’s your favourite book genre?
Fantasy or horror. I love the weird and the scary.
Where’s your favourite place to read?
I really like to read in my hammock when it’s nice outside, or inmy blue chair next to my window. But I have to beat my dog to it, because she recently started thinking it’s her chair.
What do you dislike about blogging in general?
This is going to sound bad, but I hate how the algorithms are made sometimes. I originally started this book blog, because I wanted to talk about my books and find other books that might sound good. But the algorithm pretty much just recommends me posts about books I’ve posted, which kind of defeats the purpose.
Do you prefer dogs or cats?
I always have a hard time answering this question. I love cats, but when it comes to owning one I’m more of a dog person. I’m a very restless person, and I have a tendency to get loud at random points, and my energy levels tend to not really match a cat. I would like to have an orange or black cat at some point, but for now I have my dog.
Which book is closest to your heart? Why?
I have two, one I haven’t read since I was an actual child but I read it once a month for years, and one that I just can’t help but love. The first being Tennyson by Lesley M. M. Blume. Elementary school me fell in love, and then caused middle school me to read Tennyson’s works. The other book being Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I had read this when I was a freshman in high school, and was so excited to read a book about somebody that was geeky. Also I’m completely convinced Levi is the love on my life. It’s my comfort read.
What other hobbies/talents do you have besides blogging?
I really like certain video games, usually ones that have a lot going on so my focus doesn’t get pulled away. I also really like swimming, and hiking. Honestly being outside in general is a hobby lol. Also music. I have perfect pitch (just a slight flex), and I played a music instrument since I was 5. I only play the piano now, but I really enjoy playing fast angry music.
Do you have a pet? Or do you want one? Which one?
I do. She’s made quite a few appearances here, but I have a Plott Hound named Penny. She’s my Hurricane Dorian rescue, and she may be scared of everything she doesn’t know but I love her. This picture is her impatiently waiting for me to put a new treat in her puzzle.
As for who I tag and my questions, I’m going to tag anyone who wants to do it! I think this is a great tag, and it’s always so hard to make sure people haven’t done it already. And I want to keep Window to Worlds’ questions. Because they were fun, and I (selfishly) want to see your guy’s pets!
