Greetings everyone! I am absolutely delighted to share with you guys the news that i have been nominated for my very first Sunshine Blogger Award.

I am deeply thrilled to know that there are people out there that find seeds of value growing in my poetry and prose.

My gratitude goes out to Lairai for nominating me. She’s a talented poet and a very skillful writer, so please do check out her blog (link below).

3.Nominate 11 bloggers and ask them 11 questions.

4.Inform your nominees through commenting on their post.

5.Display the rules and the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post.

So here are Lairai’s questions to me.

1.How would you describe yourself in one sentence?

An extroverted introvert that likes to ponder poetry(beauty).

2.What is your favourite novel and why?

The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson.

I’m an avid fantasy reader and this novel stems from my favorite series in the genre, The Stormlight Archives.

I love it because Kaladin, the main protagonist in it, has a character that i feel resonates with my own.

I love it because the world is cruel yet the people in it are strong.

Also, it has an interesting magic system that i think is quite unique.

3. Share any quotation close to your heart.

I think therefore i am.

4. Do you believe in Life-after-Death?Why or why not?

This is a tricky one. Do i believe that i will live on after i die?

The thought of believing otherwise scares me to death, so i choose to believe that life will go on after the breath leaves my body, and my bones have turned to dust.

Perhaps i will reincarnate as a kangaroo from the local city zoo.

Perhaps death is but the evolution of a person into a higher lifeform? I certainly like to think so.

5. Do you believe there is a higher purpose to our existence as humans?

Yes! I believe firmly in the fact that there is a higher purpose to our existence, because believing otherwise would not be wise.

Perhaps it is arrogrant of me to think so. But why else do we have a burning (collective) desire to grow and traverse limits?

Why do we strive for perfection, if there is no meaning to our being.

I believe the universe is an intelligent being that made us for a reason.

6. What is the one thing you would definitely like to do before you die?

I’d love to do many things before i die. I’d love to fall madly in love, to publish plenty books, build businesses etc.

But if i don’t do anything else, travelling the world would be my biggest aspiration.

I have extreme pride and love for my country but i’d love to get the chance to fall in love with the world. To see new sites, eat different foods, experience different cultures. (And make love to foreign beauties).

7. What brings you the utmost joy?

Having a good time.

Sometimes i like to have a good time with my friends(loved ones). At times like these i get a feeling of joy from conversing with them. Getting to know them better.

Sometimes I like to have a good time on my own. Simply enjoying my own company, getting to know myself better.

8. How do you deal with things not going your way?

Whenever things don’t go my way, i console myself by affirming that everything happens for a reason, that if it didn’t happen, it wasn’t meant to be.

I prefer to accept that things did not go my way rather than wallow in negativity.

9. What’s your favourite band?

My favorite band would be those guys that like to play cold music, Coldplay. I like the guys that smoke chains(The Chainsmokers) and Maroon 5 as well but i could listen to Coldplay all day, everyday.

10.Share any song close to your heart.

This is a song by a real good friend of mine, some would say he is my brother, from another mother.

I love this song for the message it spreads is one shrouded in positivity. Mainly to follow your dreams no matter what.

11.If you were given an opportunity to resurrect any historical figure for a day, whom would it be and why?

Given the opportunity, i would bring back to life the famous explorer, Marco Polo.

As an aspiring explorer of the space beyond my place of rest, i would be extremely thrilled to share a voyage with the renowned explorer.
