Here in Maryland, it's sunny again after over a week of cloudy skies and rain. Except today, of course. Summer is about a week away and it's heating up.
So, this is a great time for The Sunshine Blogger Tag. I was tagged in this by Melissa Gravitis from Quill Pen Writer. Thanks, Melissa! It's a pretty easy tag.
1. Answer the 11 questions from your nominee
2. Tag 11 bloggers
3. Ask them 11 new questions
Let's get started with the questions.
#1 - Did anything 'spark' your passion (writing, reading, art, etc.) or did it come on gradually?
I have several passions, and most of them I've been doing as long as I can remember. I think one that really sparked in me was music. My older cousin played the violin and she made me want to learn too. I had to wait until I was six, however, before I could start.
#2 - If a library was on fire and you could only save three of its books, which three would you choose?
Argg, can't I just have a Tardis and put them all inside? I would probably pick The Lord of the Rings (because that's actually one book), Alice in Wonderland, and The Lightning Thief.
#3 - Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or another drink?
Coffee if I can have it in a frappuccino, hot chocolate all other times. Especially the really rich kind, even if I can't drink a lot of it. I'm lactose intolerant and that stuff has so much milk and cream in it.
#4 - One of your characters can come alive for a day. Who do you want it to be?
Hana Johnson from my novel The Girl with the Sword. She is one of my all time favorite characters. Plus, she's a superhero and I would love to see her powers in action.
#5 - How many siblings do you have?
Five, two sisters, three brothers. I'm the oldest of six. It can be loud around my house, but I wouldn't want it any other way.
#6 - Do you have a motto? (If you do, share it, if you don't, make one up!)
Hmm, a motto. I've never had one before. How about: Don't Give Up. That's something I feel very strongly about.
#7 - What's the strangest dream you've ever had?
The strangest dream I've ever had. The one that sticks most vividly with me is one I dreamed years ago. It was that a giant orange planet had just appeared in our sky. It was so big you could see it rising above the surface of our planet like it was only a few miles from Earth. Everyone was panicking and I think I had to do something.
One of my favorite dreams of all time, if you were wondering, is one where I dreamed I found the Doctor and the Tardis. Then he invited me to travel with him and I was just about to go when I woke up.
#8 - Have you ever traveled out of your country, and if yes, where to?
I have and I went to France for three weeks about ten years ago. My dad was building a gypsy wagon for some clients and we all got to come along and go on vacation. That trip is one of my best memories, even though I got stuck on an elevator at a museum with my baby brother and didn't know what to do. In the end, I just stayed on the car until it got back to the floor with my family. I was terrified.
#9 - If you wished on a shooting star, what would you wish for?
I would wish that I always found happiness in whatever I did in life. It's something I strive for every day. Either that or I find the Doctor and get to travel with him.
#10 - Would you rather go swimming in Antarctica or camping in the Sahara Desert?
I'd rather relax on a beach in Hawaii and learn to surf. However, since that's not an option, I think I'd take swimming in Antarctica, since I would be wearing a dry suit and be nice and cozy. The Sahara sounds too hot for me.
#11 - How did you come up with your blog's name?
When I decided I was actually going to do this blog thing, I knew finding the right name would be important. I chose R's Loft because my name is Rachel and I wanted this to be a sort of creative loft where you can find things from writing to fashion. You should see the picture I have in my head of what my blog would look like if it was a real loft.
I still don't know a lot of other bloggers, and I know a lot of people have done this one, so if you want to do it, go ahead. Here are my questions.
#1- Favorite animal?
#2- If you watch Doctor Who, which doctor would you want to travel with? If you don't, which TV character would you like to travel with?
#3- What's your favorite thing about the area you live in?
#4- How many states have you been too? Or if you live outside the US, how many countries?
#5- Would you vacation in Tokyo, Paris, London, or Hawaii?
#6- What's something you've always wanted to learn to do?
#7- Name three of your favorite memories.
#8- What's your favorite thing about blogging?
#9- What's your favorite dream you've ever had?
# 10- Taylor Swift or Sabrina Carpenter?
#11- If you were to become an outlaw, what name would you pick?
Let's talk! What would you wish for? How many siblings do you have? Which doctor would you want to travel with (or other TV character)? Tell me in the comments.
