AWARD: Sunshine Blogger #7

Posted on

Many thanks to Claire @ BrizzleLass Books for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Claire is fantastic… she was recently my Recommended Blogger to know for the 365 Daily Challenge… so if you missed that post, click here to check it out and learn more about Claire.

My Questions

  • You can live anywhere in the world, where do you choose?
    • Cotswolds, so I could visit you!


  • What are you reading right now?
    • Two books:
      • The Bear and the Nightingale
      • If the Creek Don’t Rise


  • What was the last live music show you went to?
    • It’s been a really long time for a concert. Maybe Dolly Parton in June, 2016. I see Broadway shows all the time!


  • If you weren’t a book blogger, what would you blog about?
    • 365 Daily Challenge, but I’d make it even bigger!


  • What is top of your bucket list?
    • I have a Book Bucket List… but I doubt that’s what you meant.
    • I’d love to see either the North or South Pole.


  • What is your autobiography called?
    • Duality in One — cause I always feel like two different people!


  • What’s your favourite season?
    • Autumn… perfect weather, perfect colors, perfect temperature, perfect smells… just perfect


  • Coffee or Tea?
    • Coffee… a few cups per day… or don’t talk to me


  • Chocolate or Wine?
    • I won’t answer it. Not fair. You are so mean. We’re never speaking again.
    • Both. At the same time. There. I said it.


  • Walk or Cycle?
    • Walk. I never understood cycling. Where do you get when you cycle? I assume you mean a fixed bike. But if you meant a real bicycle, I haven’t done that in 20 years, so still walking. I’m old. Leave me alone.


  • Finally, your favourite book this year?
    • You by Caroline Kepnes.




New Questions

  1. What is your eye color?
  2. What city have you spent the most time in other than your current one?
  3. Favorite TV show?
  4. What time do you usually eat dinner?
  5. What languages do you speak?
  6. Have you ever considered running for political office?
  7. Do you have any foods you are afraid to eat?
  8. What three jobs would you want other than your current one?
  9. If you were a character on Sesame Street, who would you be?
  10. What is 10 plus 10? Answer if 3 different languages.
  11. Who is buried in Grant’s tomb?

Note: Pick 1 question to skip and add in any question you’d like to include! I’m generous.


About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”

I’m Jay and I live in NYC. By profession, I work in technology. By passion, I work in writing. I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.

Join the fun and read a new post each day, or check out my book reviews, TV/Film reviews or favorite vacation spots. And feel free to like, rate, comment or take the poll for each post. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them. Many thanks to their original creators.

    Haha I’m laughing so hard! 😂
    Yay for coming to visit when you move to the Cotswolds!
    I love you go to Broadway Shows, the first time I saw Wicked was on Broadway. I now have to settle with touring shows! Unless I can get into London but that is really expensive!
    Sorry about the chocolate/wine question that was quite mean…I’m very sorry 😊
    The walk/cycle thing aswell I’m with you I don’t get cycling at all. I have a bike which I ride like once a year, that usually reminds me why I hate cycling and I go back to walking! 😂

      Wicked is the best! But they are very expensive. I have several actor friends who are either on stage or backstage, so I get lucky sometimes with tix.

      No worries on chocolate and wine. We can get thru it! LOL
