Real Neat Blogging Award


I have been nominated for this award by 4 Year old Adult from Taiwan.  Thank you so much!

The rules of the award are as follow:

Insert the award logo onto your post.
Answer the seven questions they asked you.
Thank the blogger who nominated you.
Nominate other bloggers and ask them seven questions (let them know you’ve nominated them!)

The questions and my answers:

1.What’s your favorite movie?

Choosing is hard but here’s my top 4. In no particular order: A Beautiful Mind, Jose RizalLes MiserablesA Walk to Remember, Heaven is for Real

2. What made you start blogging?

It started out as a breather from all those academic writing I needed to comply for graduate school. Since academic papers would require you to squeeze thoughts from your head, I missed writing what’s really in my heart. Soulful writing is just a thing I love to do when I’m quiet. It’s like listening to yourself. After taking them to WordPress, I’ve also realized blogging is a neater and a more organized way of keeping my written musings instead of having them just hidden in my little black journal or in some writing them on random papers, tissue papers, receipts and the like 🙂 And then there goes my first liker and follower from another part of the world. I kind of  freaked out like a child because I couldn’t believe that a stranger from another country reads my work just a minute after posting it:) Meeting and interacting with fellow writers virtually are the perks.

3. Do you prefer reading fiction or non-fiction?

I like reading both but that would depend on the plot.

4. Are you a morning person or a night person?

I can be a night owl or an early bird. It depends. haha I would need the companion of a cup of coffee at night though.

5.What musical instrument would you love to master?

I have two in my bucketlist: guitar and violin. When I watch people who can play them or any musical instrument, I feel like I’m listening to a magical creation each time.

6. What’s your favorite color?

Blue. I never get tired of the sky and the sea.

7. What’s your favorite childhood memory?

The most vivid perhaps would be when my mom was just teaching me to read before I even started school. Because of that I had an early interest for reading. And then when I was 5 or 6, my dad brought me to shops to look for dresses. I still remember his face while asking me, “Which color do you like?” It was joy to me.
