ATE GLAI’S QUESTIONS:
(At least dito naranasan ko maging beauty queen diba.)
1. What’s the thing you love most about blogging?
☾ That I can put all my thoughts into words. Writing has always been an escape for me. This is how I let go of anger and pain; this is where I keep almost all my memories whether it be good or bad. But to top it all, I love how I can look back at everything I wrote and see how different I have become throughout the years. It feels like having an online journal where you see yourself grow.
2. Who would you consider as your blogging friend? (you may or may not have met her/him)
☾ The first person I thought of is Ate Aysa. She doesn’t know this but there was this one time where I was just reading her posts, envying because she’s IN MALDIVES. Our dream paradise is just another home for her. Hello, sinong ‘di maiinggit?
3. What’s your top 5 dream country destination?
4. What do you love most about your family?
☾ When I was back in the Philippines, no matter how busy we are, Sunday is always family day. We go to church, eat lunch after, and spend the whole day roaming around some place that we want to go. Now that I am thousands of miles away from them, we have a group chat on Facebook Messenger and that is where we communicate most of the time – sending selfies and photos of where we are and what we’re eating. (But mostly, selfies.) Hahaha!
5. What do you like to do on a weekend?
☾ Let us throw that time back when I’m still in the Philippines and unemployed, okay? (Gosh, this post makes me miss home.) Either I’m out with friends or I’m at home – reading books or just watching movies with my family. Weekends are made for you to rest!
6. Do you like to cook?
☾ I do, but I’m still on the phase of courting it so it would love me back. I only learned how to cook abroad and I’m still on the process of learning. I’ve cut myself a few times now – some are mild, some are intense (parang level of spice lang ng chicken wings) – but I’ve gained compliments from my “experiment” dishes or what we call pacham in the Philippines, so I can say that those cuts are worth it.
7. If you could be on any reality tv show, which one of it be and why?
☾ But I don’t watch tv shows/series. :( I am so sorry to disappoint.. Hahahaha.
8. Who is your blogging inspiration? Why her/him?
☾ Trisha Velarmino of PS I’m On My Way. Solid. She’s one of the realest bloggers out there; so young but so many life experiences already. Whenever I am feeling demotivated with blogging, I just read her posts and think of what she has reached in life. I look up to her so much – that’s a fact. I love her to bits.
9. What is your daily mantra?
☾ It’s my favorite verse lately and it’s from Matthew 6:34 which says, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” It reminds me to just let go of all my worries and let God do the rest for me.
10. Which activities make you lose track of time?
☾ This is actually similar to my next list for my The Happiness Project and I haven’t done it yet so I’d list it here!
List #4: List the things that get you out of your head
✣ Reading books. I am a proud bookworm and reading totally is on top of this list. I get so into it sometimes that I didn’t notice na I haven’t eaten yet or it’s already 4 in the morning.
✣ Writing. No explanations needed.
✣ Listening to music while imagining the perfect video for it. I love taking and editing videos and it really gets me out of my head especially if I’m searching for new songs to use on my “next” vid.
✣ Listening to music in general. Especially if the songs are kinda sad or it makes me feel nostalgic.
✣ Playing games. Disclaimer: I am not a gamer; my boyfriend is. (So if may gusto kayong pagtanungan about games, message me and makakarating sa kinauukulan.) Lately, I have been addicted to Messenger’s Endless Lake. I always tend to become super addicted when it comes to games na ang main purpose is pataasan lang ng high score. Competitive ako, gusto ko ma-beat ‘yung sarili kong high score! Before that, I was staying up late for Everwing. Grabe talaga, guys. But my favorite game of all time talaga would be The Sims. I played Sims 1-4, with or without expansions, and I swear I’m living the life there. Buti pa do’n.
Or anyone who wants to do it. Ganun nalang. :)
Your beauty queen moment. Questions:
