Savvy’s Questions:

What is your take on equality of sexes? 

Well, men and women are not the same but both have equal value, thus, should be granted equal treatment. We can not achieve gender equality for as long as women are treated as secondary citizens.

What is your idea of happiness?

An integrated and balanced life.

What is your idea of a perfect day in your life?

In a cabin in the woods, with a book, good food and music. No internet. (With my boyfriend, if I have one, would be a bonus!)

Do you like to dance, if so what style or form attracts you?

Yes, I like dancing. I just go disco dancing, actually, but would love to learn and dance salsa.

What are you most thankful for?

There are tons of things I am always thankful for but these days I have to say, I’m really grateful for my job and good health.

Among the many valuable qualities what is the most important quality to develop as a human being?

I personally think that it is important to develop the quality of our mindset because it influences everything we see, think, do and believe in.

Liebster Award #2

This is a much delayed response to Ocean Hayward but I’m still very grateful for this Liebster Award! Wow! Another Liebster just means so much. This is so sweet! Thanks a lot, Ocean! Visit her blog and find lots of great things there! 🙂

liebster-award-nomination

The instructions for accepting the Liebster are:

  • Create a new post thanking the person who nominated you, link their blog and insert the award graphic.
  • Answer the questions provided to you, share a little bit about yourself.
  • Develop a new set of questions for your nominations to answer.
  • Nominate 10 others and share your post with them so they see it.

So… here are her questions and my answers:

What advice would you give to young writers/ new bloggers?

Oh I don’t think I’m the right person to give advice to young writers/new bloggers. I’m a newbie, too! 😊

How did you learn how to read and write? I honestly don’t remember a time trying to learn how to read/write, really. What I can recall is that I always read with my older brother most of the time.

What made you want to start writing/ creating? There was a really sad time when I was still in grade school and writing served as the outlet for my feelings/emotions. I’m able to write when I’m feeling too much.

If you had to switch jobs, what career would you pursue and why? I’ve always wanted to be a lawyer and politician. I think I can lead and I have a brilliant plan on how to improve the current situation in my country. (Haha!)

Would you rather be able to move things with your mind or be able to talk to animals? Even though being able to talk to animals sounds fun to me, I guess I’d rather be able to move things with my mind. I’ve got some ideas running in my head already. 😉

What is the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever done? Hmmm… I think peeing on the rooftop because I was drunk and lazy to go to the bathroom. (?)

Referring to the television show Freaks and Geeks, when you were in high school were you a freak or a geek? A freak definitely.

Name one fashion fad that you secretly still love and are waiting for it to come back into style. I really liked to wear Tretorn shoes before but I don’t see them nowadays (well, I don’t see them here…) but I would love to wear one again specially the ones I used to have back in high school.

Your first thought that comes to mind when someone mentions, “Canada.” Snow and the maple leaf. 🙂

Tell us about the funniest thing that ever happened ever. EVER. (I mean it. Ever.) I once locked my classmates and the teacher inside the classroom when I was in 5th grade. They weren’t able to go out until lunch break and I later found out that some were crying and going crazy being locked up. It’s probably scary for them but was really funny for me because I’ve never done anything like that before and I’m not sure why I did it but it was real fun at the time. And oh! My teacher’s face when she saw me later, pure pleasure! 😀

Now the Liebster awardees are :

  1. NS
  2. Aishwarya
  3. A Not so Jaded Life
  4. Seema Mehra
  5. Lunarian Thoughts
  6. Priti C
  7. Silhouette
  8. Queenyasaaawrites
  9. Elma Shakil
  10. ByLuis7

And the 10 questions they’ve got to answer :

  2. What’s your personal heaven?
  3. When God asks you while standing in the gates of heaven why should He let you in, what would you say?
  4. What do you do to forget about life for a while?

  6. What bad habits do you want to break?

If you didn’t ask, I wouldn’t have realized that it’s been almost two years since I started this blog. 🙂

2. What’s the story behind your blog’s name?

I often feel that I’m such a mess, a walking chaos and so on but a happy kind of mess and all, and so the blog name…

3. What is your favorite genre and is it the same one you write?

No particular favorite and I’m not really a writer, I’m far from it so I just write whatever little thoughts come to mind (or out of boredom) like six-word stories and haiku and book reviews if you can call them that…

4. How has blogging changed your life?

Hmmm… I’m not really an active blogger and there’s no real life-changing effect on me to be quite honest and I hope the readers won’t get me wrong, however, I must say that if I didn’t start with this blog, I probably wouldn’t have met wonderful bloggers and I probably wouldn’t have come across amazing blogs.

5. Describe yourself in five words.

Naughty. Happy-go-lucky. Independent. Unpredictable. Rebellious.

6. Where did you grow up?

I grew up in a small city located some 5,000 feet above sea level within a mountain range in Northern Philippines.

Yes. Definitely books though I must say I’ve been reading more from my Kindle since someone gave it to me.
