Sunshine Blogger Tag

Melissa Gravitis tagged me in the Sunshine Blogger Tag! I’m so excited – it’s the first tag that I’ve participated in. Thanks for tagging me, Melissa!
The rules are pretty simple:
#1: Answer the 11 questions from your nominee
#2: Tag 11 bloggers
#3: Ask them 11 new questions
I don’t know if you’re as thrilled about this as I am, but I’m too pumped up to stall anymore. Let’s get on with it!

1) Did anything 'spark' your passion (writing, reading, art, etc.) or did it come on gradually?
     It was more of a gradual thing for me. But, I think it was when I began reading that I slowly realized books actually came from somewhere and didn’t just magically appear. Then I decided I could do it, too!

2) If a library was on fire and you could only save three of its books, which three would you choose?

     Oh, goodness. I’d probably say 1) Lost Girl of Astor Street, 2) Gregor the Overlander, the Prophecy of Bane, (book 2 in the series. It was my favorite!), and 3) The Negotiator (O’Malley Chronicles).

3) Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or another drink?

     Tea!!! I probably drink far too much of it, but I can’t help it. (I’ve also been told I put too much sugar in it . . .). I do like coffee, too, though!

4) One of your characters can come alive for a day. Who do you want it to be?
This is literally how I reacted when I read that question...

Ahhhhhh!! How could you do that?!?! How am I supposed to choose?! Hmm . . . probably Endings (the main character in my current WIP). That’s such a tough question, though! I might choose Dreams (also from my current WIP). Gah, I don’t know! I’ll just go with Endings, cause he’s a pretty cool dude.

5) How many siblings do you have?

     3: an older sister, an older brother, and a younger sister. Love ‘em all, and I couldn’t live without them!

6) Do you have a motto? (If you do, share it, if you don't, make one up!)

     “Imagination's a life saver.” I try and remember this in my everyday life, and it makes everything so much more exciting! After all, going to the store’s pretty boring, but if you were doing it because a king had sent you on a quest to kill a dragon that’d been plaguing their kingdom? Much more fun.

7) What's the strangest dream you've ever had?

     Golly. That’s a tough one. I’d say any of the Doctor Who dreams that I’ve had are pretty strange – and there’s a lot of them, so . . .

8) Have you ever traveled out of your country, and if yes, where to?

     Yep! I’m an MK! I moved from Indiana to Thailand and, if you count airports, I’ve been alllllll over.

9) If you wished on a shooting star, what would you wish for?

     If I was going for something outlandish, I’d wish I could travel into books/TV shows/movies and be part of the story. If I was wishing for something more realistic, I have no idea what I’d wish for.

10) Would you rather go swimming in Antarctica or camping in the Sahara Desert?

      Hmm . . . probably camping in the Sahara Desert. I mean, I live in Thailand – the weather’s not THAT different, right?  ๐Ÿ˜‰

11) How did you come up with your blog's name?

      I don’t know, really. It just seemed fitting. I came up with a few options, and then showed them to a couple friends of mine, who helped me figure out which one would work out best. I’m pretty satisfied with the result ๐Ÿ˜Š

Well that was lots of fun! Now for the tagging portion. Who gets to go next? Get this: anyone who wants to.

That’s right. I went there.

Now for my eleven questions for you.

#1 - If you could go and live in any story (be it book, movie, or TV show), and return to our world whenever you wanted, which book/movie/TV show would you choose, and how long would you stay?
#2 - What is your favorite book genre?
#3 - Do you write in the same genre you read in? (i.e fiction/non-fiction, novels/blogs, etc.)
#4 - What’s your favorite TV series?
#5 - Do you prefer dark chocolate, white chocolate, or milk chocolate?
#6 - Favorite musician/band?
#7 - What was your favorite story/blog to write, and where did your inspiration for that story/blog come from?
#8 - What’s the one place you’ve always dreamed of going?
#9 - Favorite birthday celebration?
#10 - Earliest memory?
#11 - If you had to either go deep sea diving or sky diving, which would you choose and why?

Don’t be afraid to join in the fun! If you liked reading through my answers, and you want to answer some of your own, do so – I had a fun time coming up with my own questions! If you decide you want to answer the questions, make sure you tell me. I’d love to hear your answers!


  1. Yay, you did the tag! All your answers are great. :) I would rather go sky diving for sure, so I wouldn't have to worry about sharing space with other sea creatures. XD

    1. Thanks! :) I think I'd probably have a hard time doing either sky diving or deep sea diving . . . XD Thanks for stopping by and for tagging me in the first place!

Grace's Corner of the World: Why I Don't Write About MK Life

For those of you who don’t know, I am an MK (missionary kid). People tend to enjoy reading my posts about my life as a missionary, and are confused when I don’t write about that. After all – I’m a missionary! Why shouldn’t I write about my thrilling life living in a tropical climate spreading the word of Jesus? There’s only one answer for that, really: It’s not thrilling. Believe it or not, my life is no more exciting than yours. I spend my days doing school and trying not to die of the heat. Don’t believe me? I’ll give you a quick run-down of my day today. 1.Manage to get out of my bed and go downstairs; hopefully pretend to be awake enough to eat breakfast 2.Eat cereal and do devotions with family 3.Do some school 4.Take a nap 5.Do more school 6.Eat lunch 7.More school 8.Hide in my room some Wasn’t that just exciting? The thrilling life of an MK, right? Honestly, I’m here because God told me to come and support Dad as he spreads God’s word. I’m not doing any “missionarying,” I’m hanging out wi…

The Do's and Don'ts of Talking to MKs

When I returned to the States and talked to people living there, I discovered that people seemed very interested in what my family and I are doing, but they didn’t know what to ask so that they could figure out more about us. I’ve also learned that there are a few questions that should be avoided and others that I really enjoy answering. I thought I’d list some of them off for you so that you could know what to look out for, and what questions might be good conversation starters!
Don’t . . .
Ask me how it feels to be “back home.” I don’t even know how to answer this question. I have lived in Thailand for a little over two years now. Some of the toughest things that I have ever been through happened in this beautiful country. I have a lot of friends here. My house is here, and my family is here. So when you ask “How does it feel to be back home?” it can make me both confused and annoyed. Questions spin through my head, such as, “Um . . . I don’t know if I even am home,” and “Goodness, do…

Grace's Corner of the World: How, Lord?

The world seems much nicer at first glance than it does when you look deeper into it.
   It looks like a fairy tale when you first see it. It feels welcoming and loving when you're a child, and then the older you get the more you recognize the evil that inhabits it.    When I visited Thailand on our vision trip, I saw that evil for the first time in my life. I was around eleven.    I remember walking into the Buddhist temple, having left my shoes outside as they were not allowed to be worn indoors. I walked quietly over the cold marble floor through the dark room and lowered myself to the ground, looking around me in awe. I came as a tourist, but others came to worship.    What did they worship?    A green statue. The Emerald Buddha, it's called. All around me Thai people bowed low to the floor as medieval peasants would in front of a king, their hands palm-down on the floor in front of them in worship of an inanimate object that couldn't help them with any of their troubles or…
