“the liebster award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. so, what is a liebster? the meaning: liebster is german and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. isn’t that sweet? blogging is about building a community and it’s a great way to connect with other bloggers and help spread the word about newer bloggers/blogs.”

I have been lazy for the past week so when Jamie of Chronological Randomness tagged me to do this, I was kind of relieved. I finally have something to talk about. Hehe. I haven’t done a tag blog post here (I think) so it’s perfect!

She wrote 11 questions for me to answer, so here it goes:

Why and how did you enter blogging?
It was purely out of boredom. I started posting my thoughts on the internet back in 2005 or 2006. It was through Multiply (remember that?). That was where I post all my drama, angst, issues, etc. That was also the reason why my classmates would call me ’emo’ because my posts were all filled with drama! Then came Tumblr, everybody’s happy place and now I ended up here. 🙂

What’s the most important social media website/app for you and why?
It would have to be Facebook for me because all my family and friends are there. I can talk to them anytime, anywhere which is really important for me since I work abroad. Twitter is mostly for my internet friends.

If you can read one book over and over again, what would it be and why?
Sad to say, I don’t really read books that much. *checks my ibooks* I am kind of ashamed to say this, but I have read the Twilight series for couple of times, so I think I still can read it over and over again. It’s just a very easy book to read for me. LOL.

The closest thing on your right, what is it? Is there anything symbolic about it?
My 17 year old bolster pillow. It’s been with me through thick and thin but we’ve been away for a couple of years. I’m so happy I brought it with me here last year. I can’t sleep properly without it. To think that I can just hug Lester, HAHAHA!

If you’ll leave the country (or if you’ve left already), aside from the people, what’s the first thing you’ll miss?
Food and Ilocos.

How is your blogging process?
I don’t think I have a process. I try to compose drafts but I end up forgetting about it. So, I go by my mood. When I have an idea, I type it in and post. I don’t follow schedules anyway.

A little personal, the story of your worst heartache?
The moment I realized that Papa is not coming back. I was young when he passed away so I really don’t know what to expect. On the other hand, if you’re asking about ~boyfriend~ heartaches, I can’t really think of anything because I broke up with them. Hehe. But the closest one would probably be with this one guy I had to stop seeing just because I know it won’t work out.

What kind of job would you want to try in one day? (When I was younger, I wanted to try being one of the “cashiers” at tollgates.)
That’s funny, Jamie, coz I wanted to be a sales lady! Back when they had cute uniforms. I also want to try being a firefighter, but that should include a good cardio power for me coz I’m weak.

Your favorite childhood memory?
It has to be with Papa. We used to bike around our village on weekends and there was one time, I was feeling the wind too much (I take the back seat of our bike), I closed my eyes and pretended to sleep – or maybe I really did fall asleep – then we passed huge road hump. You guessed it. I fell! I got lots of wounds and scratches. I remember Mama saying Papa was so scared of her coz I was injured. Hehe!

Given the chance, what will you tell your high school freshie you?
Self, calm down and everything will be fine. You won’t stay here for long but in the future, you’ll get to still be friends with the people you have now. You may have lost your first guy best friend but that’s fine. You will know why and he’s fine! 🙂

What have you been up to?
Dreading going back to work after a 3-day weekend. I have also been busy editing videos for my youtube channel.

Thanks, Jamie for this fun questions!

  1. I loved Multiply so much! It was what made me love writing. I didn’t even know back then, despite the grammatical errors, that I can write.
