Liebster Award 2016
Wow!!! Liebster Award! To tell you honestly, I am fairly new to blogging world and started in September 2016. Taking a step into blogging has been a dream of mine but so hesitant because of the usual fear of rejection. You know, people may not like what you write or how you write. Worse, you’ll be bashed. But I’ve been reading some blogs a long time ago as a hobby and to learn about some stuff. They have inspired me to become one.
So, here I am, created my blog and my world to keep memories and to share with everyone interested. Of course, I am still nervous at times and still lack confidence in my writing. Like, am I doing good? Is this right? Am I on point? Etc…
I’ve been a reader even before but I never engage in comments or in private messages. Now, it has come to this. I am the one doing the writing and hoping for someone to read my blog posts while feeling anxious if I do really have readers or whatnot. So yeah, can’t blame those quiet readers because there’s really no need to engage if there’s really nothing to engage with, right? Unless you truly want to shout out what you feel in the comment box.
To my surprise, I am receiving this Liebster Award from someone who just said she is reading my blog regularly. It flatters me, that finally, someone reads my blog. LOL! 🙂
Liebster Award 2016
So, what is this Liebster Award? The Liebster Award 2016 is an award that exists only on the internet and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.
And I’d like to thank Kelly of K vs. Life for this one. Truly, you’ve made me smile knowing that there’s at least one who truly reads my blog. 🙂 So, part of the official rule is to answer the questions given to us by the person who gave the nomination. Without any further adieu, here are my answers to the questions from Kelly. 🙂
If you could live in another country, where and why?
I’d choose Japan. Because I am an anime fan since childhood until now. Japan is also known for its rich culture of simplicity and respect to one another. Imagine, for a country with super advanced technology, they are still able to keep simplicity by riding public transportation and living in a space saving house while they sleep with a futon. Also, in most area, the crime rate is just so low. You can leave your house without locking it. If you lost your cell phone somewhere, expect that someone will return it to you anytime soon. So yeah, Japan it is.
What is/are your guilty pleasures?
Probably sweets? Okay, to be specific it has to be leche flan. I can finish 1 llanera in one sitting. Next is I am an impulsive buyer. I buy things I like driven by emotions. I tend to buy clothes that I like in just one look and end up regretting it when I get home. Seriously, some looked good when I tried to fit, but when I actually wear it as my OOTD, it’s ugly. So there.
Dogs or cats?
Easy question. Cats!!! 🙂 I totally appreciate the cuteness of dogs and others. But if I am to pet one, it should be a cat. I can’t handle dogs. High maintenance. LOL.
Any messages to those who broke you?
Why this question?! I’ll just say be happy and don’t break anyone else anymore. 🙂
Any messages to those who stayed through thick and thin?
Thank you so much. I know there will be a lot of challenges in life, but you stayed. Our friendship will forever be tested as we move forward, and greater challenges will determine the strength of our friendship. So, cheers if you’ll stay and say, our relationship is greater than any challenges out there. 🙂
When and how did you find your love for blogging?
I think when Multiply became a hit? I’ve seen my high school classmates doing some blogs and I don’t even understand what blog is. But they say it’s just an online diary. So, I became interested in reading someone’s public diary. Then blogs evolved to something that we see today. I was hooked and wanted to have my own website to contain my memories and to share with everyone. There are perks as we go along, but my goal is to make this my personal platform and become a career as well. A source of income some time? Because I am tired of working.
When life gets hard, how do you handle it?
I go out and eat. I go to malls and do window shopping, but will end up buying things I really don’t need. If don’t go out, I unleash my hardcore gamer within. I play for 10 hours straight. DOTA 2 or any MMORPG that I previously played. I sometimes self-pity? weakling!!!
What is your favorite TV Show/Korean Drama?
I really don’t watch TV shows especially the mainstream ones. So, sorry. I am an anime fan, so, I save my free time watching anime. But I’ve watched Korean drama before. My ultimate favorite is My Girl because I’ve watched it for 4 times already I guess? Others are The Partner and Princess Hours.
Who is your hero?
My hero would be my mom. I guess, there’s no need to explain? Because mothers are just the best. Just to be clear, I am not stereotyping or making fathers or anyone else inferior. But I know for sure that parents are mostly the heroes that we can think of. 🙂
Percy Jackson series or Harry Potter series?
I look like a loser for not knowing Percy Jackson. I didn’t even bother to Google it (Otaku problems). So, I am choosing Harry Potter instead, even if I didn’t read the book. But I watched all of the movies. The downside is, I didn’t totally understand everything because I am an absolute anime fan, so I didn’t really pay attention to internalize what’s really happening. Sorry. 🙁
Your thoughts about Glenn’s death on The Walking Dead? Or just share any random information about yourself.
I don’t watch mainstream stuff so I really don’t have thoughts on it. Haha! So, I’ll just share random information about myself. I am an introvert turning to ambivert. Does that help? LOL. Uhm, I hate being late and it also means that I hate people being late. When I shop for clothes, I go to children’s and teen’s section because XS from men’s wear is still large for me. Lastly, I hate kids. Especially those makulit. I can’t stand them and I hate it when they scream. If you pass me a baby to carry, I’ll put him down because I don’t know how to carry a baby. 🙂
