I want to say a big thank you to Tsvetty from the Mental Health Memo (@mental_h_memo) for my first-ever nomination for the Sunshine Blogger Award.
Tsvetty is a social worker and psychology student who struggles with depression and anxiety. Tsvetty, much like me, wants to help others with mental health through their blog, so go check it out at Mental Health Memo.

Questions From The Mental Health Memo
- What is the best piece of advice you have ever been given and how has it impacted your life?
I honestly can’t remember any advice that I may have been given.
- Is there a lesson you’ve learned the hard way that you want to warn other people about?
Only be willing to do what you’re comfortable doing for a friend. Just because you’re willing to bend over backwards to help a friend, doesn’t mean they’ll ever return the favour.
- What’s something you’re super proud about from this year?
Starting my blog.
- Is there a song you like to listen to when you need a pick-me-up?
I have quite a few. It all depends on which mood I’m in at the time I need a pick-me-up. My song choices often change as my go-to song to pick me up as well. Currently, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Downtown is my go-to song.
You can only use one social media for the rest of your life, which one’s it gonna be and why?
For my personal use, I’d pick Facebook. It’s the one I use most to keep up-to-date on current events, science, etc.
What was your favourite concert ever? (If you haven’t gone to one before, what artist/band would you want to go see)
Fear Factory, is my first non-festival gig. It was amazing. The mosh pit was extreme, and I was so exhausted I had to leave the pit briefly to get a drink to recover before making my way back to exactly where I was before I left. Fell in love with moshing because of that gig.
Do you have a favourite scent? (Can be a perfume or just a smell in general)
I can’t say I’ve ever really thought about it. Caramel is a really nice smell, I guess.
How would you spend your money if you won the lottery?
If I won £10 on the lottery, I’d most likely buy a takeaway. If I won the big jackpot, I’d most likely buy myself a drink first, then buy a house, and then hire a team to help me create a business plan so I could run my own business.
What is your favourite thing about blogging?
Tough one. I guess finishing a post you’re really proud of is a good feeling. The external validation of people liking and commenting on your work is also a good feeling. But I guess the thought that you might have helped someone is my favourite thing about blogging.
What has been the hardest thing for you about blogging?
Figuring out the best way to reach people to read your blog and the amount of time and energy that that can consume.
What is your goal for this year?
Getting a placement so I can get the client hours I need to finish my master’s degree.

My Sunshine Blogger Award Nominees
Although the rules say you should pick 11 nominees for the Sunshine Blogger Award, I’ve recently had to pick people for four different rewards in the spare of a few weeks (The Liebster Award, The Mystery Blogger Award, and Blogger Recognition Award). Thus, I’ve decided to only pick ten this time.

Congratulation on the reward. And yes, caramel is a wonderful scent 😀
Indeed it is, but it’d most likely just make me hungry all the time
Congratulations on your nomination. You do very good work on your blog and it’s been a pleasure reading your thoughts. Best of luck on the road ahead
Congratulations! Loved reading your answers and learning a little bit more about you. It is the simple things in life that make the big moments worth while, but it is also definitely worth it to dream big! <3
