The Sunshine Blogger Award

Hi everyone,

I have fantastic news: Anita from Discovering Your Happiness nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award! Thank you so much, Anita!

Discovering Your Happiness is one of my favorite blogs. Anita has a knack for writing exactly what I need to hear. If you need encouragement in your life, take a look at her blog!

Anyways, here are the rules for the Sunshine Blogger Award:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  2. Answer the 11 questions asked.
  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions.
  4. List the rules and include the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post.

Here are my questions:

  • Are you a chocolate lover?

Absolutely! Dark chocolate is my favorite!

  • Where was the last place you travelled?

Waco, Texas. My family and I took a day trip there over spring break (yes, we went to the Magnolia House =D)

  • What is one of your biggest fears?

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been terrified of fire. I’m much better now, but I’m still very uncomfortable around fire.

  • What is one of your biggest accomplishments?

My biggest accomplishment is my Girl Scout Gold Award, which I got my senior year of High School. In order to get this award, I had to spend at least 100 hours on a service project. I wrote a book for general education teachers about how to accommodate students with disabilities in their classrooms. It took me over a year to complete, and it’s easily one of my biggest accomplishments.

  • Are you happy where you are right now?

For the most part, I’m happy where I am right now. My anxiety has been the lowest it’s ever been since being diagnosed with my anxiety disorder. I’m a full-time college student studying English, I have an amazing group of friends, and I have the time and energy to do fun things, like hanging out with my friends and blogging.

  • What is your favourite movie of all time?

Hidden Figures. It’s easily one of my favorites!

  • How long have you been on wordpress?

Since December 20th, 2017.

  • What is the meaning behind your blog name?

The name of my blog, “Anxiety Free World,” is very special to me. When I was first diagnosed with my anxiety disorder, I felt very alone. I didn’t know anyone who was struggling with the things I was struggling with. I didn’t know how to cope, and I didn’t know how my life was going to change. It was a scary time, and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. Along the way, I’ve had many people help me heal, and I met people who had successfully managed their anxiety disorders. They graciously shared their tips and tricks with me, listened to me vent, and provided the empathy and support that I desperately needed. It’s been my dream to pay this support forward; I want to create an “Anxiety Free World”.

  • If there is one food you could eat forever, what would it be?

That’s a tough one. I would say seafood. I love pan-seared salmon, especially with a compound butter… it’s so good!

  • What do your weekends consist of?

Studying, studying, and more studying. Because I’m an English Major, I have a lot of reading, especially on the weekends. I typically have anywhere from 100-150 pages of reading a week. Lately, though, I’ve had as many as 200 pages a week.

  • What is one of your April goals?

One of my goals is to finish my semester strongly. Right now, I have straight A’s, and I’d like to end the semester that way.

 

Now, here are my nominations:

  1. Mind Over Mood
  2. Laketra BFF
  3. Midsummer Daydreamer
  4. Avionne’s Legacy
  5. Anxiety Warrior
