Freedom...Happiness... Sunshine. Image from inspirably.

I got nominated by Mindy, the ever young-looking webmistress of Pink and Undecided who claims to be 30 years old (visit her blog and you'll know what I mean) for the Sunshine Blogger Award. It's my first time so I'm a little too excited about this.

Here's how it goes:


  1. Post a picture of the Sunshine Award.
  2. Post 11 facts about yourself.
  3. Answer 11 questions (same as the blogger who nominated you).
  4. Link back to the blogger who nominated you.
  5. Nominate 11 bloggers too (no tag backs).
  6. Let the bloggers know about your post.

Sounds exciting! I think I'm gonna babble again in this post. Forgive me if I do! :)


Let's start with the basics. I am twenty-one years old, biologically female, five feet and three inches tall and currently loving my bob cut hair. I am in a really awesome and loving relationship with... tada! My boyfriend! Who else? I am a Registered Midwife, a Registered Nurse and a soon-to-be licensed teacher. I am taking baby steps towards my career. I am practically paranoid about it and I want everything to be perfect and to go as planned. A little diversion is alright as long as it's tolerable.

I am a terrible morning person so I resort to cappuccino and coffee addiction to help wake me up every morning. I know that too much caffeine isn't good for my bones and calcium reserve but I am really groggy every morning. This is a habit I've always wanted to change and I keep failing every single time!

I am a notorious procrastinator and have been playing tug-of-war between what I need to do and what I want to do for as long as I can remember. And I'm still struggling to overcome such an awful attitude. I know what I need alright: time management. It's easier said than done, though. I've been thinking that I need therapy on this! Sometimes, I can't handle my procrastinating nature anymore. It sucks.

I used to love painting and drawing but since I have kind of gotten disappointed and discouraged in the field of art, I resorted to reading and writing (from poetry to short stories to monologues) instead. I love reading everything from news to novels to amateur novelettes by aspiring authors - as long as it isn't that cliche. 

I was once a fan fiction author in winglin and asianfanfics. I still want to continue writing stories for my readers. I do but I've been suffering from author's block - which I attribute to a successful love life. I used to be able to write stories (which aren't that good - just okay) because I had always been heartbroken. My inspiration during those moments were from my heartbreaking experiences. Now that I am not heartbroken anymore and am more than contented with my love life, I can't seem to write love stories anymore. Ugh. Why oh why?

I want to be a published author of novels and inspirational books. I still don't know how I'm going to manage that dream but I feel like I just have to put that dream in my head for now - since my schedule doesn't allow such leisure just yet. I am not giving up on that dream.

I love taking photos and have been dreaming of having my own DSLR. With that said, I plan on becoming an inspirational blogger, a travel blogger, a book review blogger, an education blogger and a fashion blogger. I don't know if I'd be able to reach those dreams, while balancing my time with my (future) kids and husband, my career, my job and my precious daydreaming moments. That's quite a list!

I am not really ladylike in front of guys (and most of the times, even girls) - with my boyfriend as the only exception. I love being tomboyish because it gives me higher self esteem. I don't even know why. I guess it's because acting a little tough and rough (but not to the point of rudeness) makes me feel stronger. However, when the situation calls for a ladylike demeanor, I can also guise myself to become a proper lady. I'm weird and I know it. :)

I don't really like very ladylike ladies who are practically suffering from narcissism and enjoying it. I'm talking about the selfie phenomenon. I think there's nothing wrong with taking pictures of yourself, most especially if no one else is present to take a picture for you. However, taking photos after photos every five minutes is uncalled for. It's just a little too irritating and sad that it's depressing me. I mean, why do people do that? I need to research on this topic.

I don't like fancy jewelries (but I still need to have some in the case of special occasions) and I dress as comfortable as I could.  I am obsessed with sweat pants and tactical pants because they offer the best comfort. However, I want to stand out when there's a special occasion so I also know how and when to dress up properly. However, as for casual wears, it depends on my mood.

I'm actually planning on buying a bicycle of my own, which I'm going to use as my service to and from the school where I'll be teaching! I want my students to see me as a simple and practical person. Besides, aside from minimizing air pollution and saving up transportation fees, I'd also get a fair amount of exercise on a daily basis! Isn't that cool?


What do you prefer to do on Christmas, open gifts or give gifts?
Honestly, I'd love to do both! But I feel like I'm cheating now so to answer this question, I'd prefer giving gifts. That's because seeing happiness on the other person's face is a very fulfilling Christmas gift that I can give to myself. :)

Party invitation, do you prefer to wear a dress or pants?
It depends on the kind of party, my mood and who I am going with. :)

What designer would you like to model for?
I'm not really familiar with designers so I don't know. Sorry. :)

A model you wish you were?
I wish I were Miranda Kerr. Her body and face and hair... everything is perfect! AND I wish I have her discipline when it comes to food!

When you go on a date do you prefer Movies or Bowling?
I prefer movies. I don't know how to play bowling and I don't think I'm gonna enjoy it, either. It looks kinda boring to me. -_-

Which will you have to like, a mountain or the beach?
I like the beach as long as it's calm and not very touristy. I always want to relax when I go to beaches. :)

Favorite Lip Balm?
I don't have one so I have no clue what the difference is. :)

Restaurant or homemade food?
Of course nothing can beat homemade food!

Eggnog or Champagne?
Eggnog! I don't drink liquors - no matter how light, how expensive or how cool it is. -_- They always give me flank pains so... no.

From all of the blogger followers, who would you want to meet?
Well, technically I don't have blogger followers because I don't have Google Friend Connect in my blog. However, I'd love to meet Mindy Pauline! She's sounds so cool to be around with and has lots of story to share. :)
