Sunshine Award

I wasn't considering on caving into one of these award things. They seem more like chain e-mails then actual awards. Though I guess it is a sign of appreciation from the person who passes it on to you, that they like what you have to say.

Kicking Rocks bestowed upon me the Sunshine Award.


I kinda like the name of the award, since it deals with a celestial body (the Sun). Though backtracking it shows that it originated on some fashion blogs, but whatever, I can deal. Also, check out Kicking Rocks' blog about him rising up in the theatrical world.

The rules for this award are:
  1. Thank the person who gave you this award and link back to them in your post.
  2. Tell us some things about yourself.
  3. Nominate 10 bloggers.
  4. Contact these bloggers and let them know they have received this award.
Some things about myself:
- Yes, I really do have Bachelors Degree in Astronomy, despite this I think I am horrible at Calculus and Physics.
- I love talking to people about astronomy, space, astrobiology, and the future in general. I am a bit optimistic despite thinking that sometimes the people in charge aren't making the best decisions.
- I have a fascination with government and politics, enough so that I minored in International Politics, though I consider more of a hobby. Most people might think the other way, politics as a job and astronomy as a hobby.
- I am left handed.

My 10 victims nominations:
  1. What I learned today is... 
  2. I Kneed A Break!
  3. nyfinancestudent
  4. Bar Science
  5. Teen Book Reviewer
  6. No Really, You Can Eat It!
  7. My Own Private Idaho (like he needs another award for his stash)
  8. As A Man Thinketh, So He Becomes
  9. Mount Aenos
  10. Chocotaster
Enjoy!

    Thank you for my nomination! I will not compete because of the chain letter-thingy I am heavily against that!

    ...

    You are left handed? is you mouse left of your keyboard? do you have a mirrored keyboard? that would be awesome ^^

    Im thinking of stupid things again! Thanks that what I wanted to say!!! Have a great day when you read this, and everytime you think of what I wrote here, I will wish you a great day again! (this includes everybody who reads this comment, and not just the astropirate)

    I am totally cool with not passing it on elexerdelex. I don't really do to much differently when it comes to keyboard and desk. I actually prefer using my mouse with my right hand, though I can use both. I can multitask better that way.
