Sunshine Blogger Award

Hey everyone! I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award which is given as a token of appreciation to different bloggers. I was nominated by my soul sister Connie who has a beautiful blog called Behind Closed Screens. My current favourite post by her is “I am an African but English is my First Language”. I highly recommend you read that. (Maybe because I relate?)


  1. Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link back to there blog so others can find them.
  2. Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated you.
  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions.
  4. Notify the nominees about it by commenting on one of their posts.
  5. List the rules on your post and display the sunshine blogger award on your post or blog site.


What has been your greatest lesson this year?
-I don’t know about greatest but one huge lesson I’ve learnt is sometimes things don’t work out the way you want them to work out and it turns I can’t control everything.

What would you describe your blog as?
– Relatable. I say this because someone recently described it as relatable.

What is the one thing you still do today that you did as a child?
– I bite my nails occasionally. I know. It’s a habit I try to break

Which book did you last read?
– The last book I read was Swimming Lessons by Lili Reinhart. I’ve been meaning to read Breathless by Jennifer Niven but the person I’m supposed to read the book with is taking forever to start.

Given anywhere in the world, where would you travel to and why?
– I would go home first (Zambia) because I need a break from this place, I just miss being around familiar people. After that, I’d go to any of the countries/places on my travel list because those places won’t visit themselves.

Why do you write?
– Simply put, it’s fun for me and the fact that I’m actually pretty good at something is insane.

What is an ideal family for you?
– A happy one. Where people show love, kindness and are supportive of each other.

What do you like about yourself and what would you choose to improve characteristically speaking?
– One thing I like about myself is I’m hardworking. I have the ability to do so much but I limit myself sometimes. Otherwise, I work hard.
– I am extremely nonchalant. It can be a bad thing or annoying to others sometimes so I’d like to improve in that area.

Who do you currently look up to and why?
– My parents. There are so many reasons why but I learn so much from them.

What is the political state like in your country and what are your thoughts?
– This is a sad topic lol. Zambia is going through a lot right now and we need a break but we can’t afford one, literally.
Elections are coming up next year so register to vote and vote when the time comes.

In a situation of reconciliation, to choose to be wrong even if you are not and to choose to let the other person take the blame, which person are you?
– I’m definitely the person who chooses to be wrong even if I am not.

These were extremely good questions and some of them deserve to be answered in depth. Connie really came with the heat. If you are reading this and would like to take part, consider yourself nominated. Answer the same questions I answered and let me know when you do! Or pick the most interesting question and answer it in the comments.

Thanks for reading!

  1. I always struggle when someone asks me whats the greatest lesson you learnt in a year or period… I mean its rarely like you ever have one huge enlightenment moment, usually its just a bunch of seemingly insignificant events which together suddenly make a whole lot of sense..

    And indeed a great lesson learned this year… I guess collectively, we all had this inculcated unto us. Tough year! Looking forward to the next one πŸ™‚
