Summer is flying by, my friend! School, for me, starts next week. Where did my summer go?! I mean, I guess it's okay since here it's practically summer until mid-October.

I've been so busy this past month with parties, camps, and whatnot. I went to summer camp about a month ago in South Carolina. It was so much fun! Then, a couple weeks ago, I went to a music camp and stayed with my aunt and uncle for a few days afterward. I met so many new people, learned a ton of new things, and got to see my little cousins! I've had so much fun, but now I'm back to reality. And school planning.


I got a job.

That's right! It's legit. I want to squeal just typing this! I am now a marketing communications specialist. No joke. It sounds so fancy, right?! I can work from home, so it's pretty flexible, too.

I. am. so. excited.

Moving on to today's post, though: thanks so much to Megan @ A Barefoot Gal for tagging me for the Sunshine Blogger Award!! I'll be answering her questions and incorporating my summer playlist in between. I know it's a little late for that, but we still have the rest of August! ;) Read until the end to participate in Studio Liv's new name poll! Have fun reading!

The Rules

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link back to their blog so others can find them.
  2. List the rules and display an award logo on your blog post.
  3. Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  4. Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and notify them by commenting on any of their posts.
  5. Ask the nominees 11 new questions.

My Questions from Megan

1. What other country would you pick to visit, and which one would you pick to live in? Why? 

I have a long, long, long list of countries I want to visit, but I think I'd most love to visit Italy. And I would love to live in Paris, or maybe study abroad there for a year!


2. What was your first favorite color?

My first favorite color was red. I still don't know why, but maybe it was because it was my mom's favorite color at the time and I wanted to be like her. :)

3. Which of the seasons' smells would you miss the most if you lost your sense of smell?

Fall! I love the cold-air smell. I know it sounds weird, but you know what I'm talking about, right? And then the smell of the heater. And then the pumpkins. And then every other scent you could possibly associate with fall.

4. Do you prefer asking or answering questions?

I really love to answer questions.

5. Would you rather go to the moon or the country in question #1?

I would definitely rather go to the moon. I think it would be amazing to see Earth from a distance.

6. What is one mainstream popular thing that you really don't like?

I feel like I don't like a lot of mainstream things right now, but for some reason I can't think of one. Maybe Fortnite?

7. Chess or checkers?

Definitely checkers. My 9-year-old brother has tried to teach me chess so many times and I'm still completely lost.

8. If you started a business, what would it be?

I honestly don't know! I mean, right now I have an organizing business, so if I founded an actual business, it would probably be something along that line.

9. What school subject are you the best at?

Latin. It's probably my least favorite, but that's my best subject. I don't understand why.

10. Are you often bored?


11. What topic would you feel most confident giving advice on?

This is actually a really good question. Probably cleaning. I'm really good at cleaning/organizing.

I Nominate...

  1. Are you more of a book person or a movie person?
  2. What is your favorite time of day?

  5. What's one of your earliest memories?
