I am close to believing that no one reads what I am writing but at the same time relieved by the thought that I need not think hard of what I have written in case I bump into someone who accidentally found her way to my online diary.
Hitting publish every time feels like giving a key to a stranger to access my house, go deep into my thoughts and allow that stranger to strip me naked in public. That has been the experience the world of blogging has been giving me but in a very good way. The world of blogging made me deal with such kind of worry and love-hate relationship a mother has with her child or even a pet owner with her pet.
To have a tiny voice in the noisy world of the internet already means a lot and to be nominated for a blogger award is even more overwhelming.
Megan Lehé of AccordingtoMey.com, thank you so much for nominating me. Mey writes about women empowerment, self love and issues that people don’t want to/are afraid to talk about. She has even wrote an article about her experience living in Singapore for This Village Girl. Read it here.
Versatile Blogger Award is bloggers’ way of acknowledging other bloggers’ work and dedication to make the internet an educational and fun-filled space.
7 Things About Me
I have ADHD
For the longest time I thought I had ADHD. It is so hard for me to sit still. I easily get distracted and it is really hard for me to focus. I can not study nor read when there are so many people around me. The same when I write, I need deafening silence to be able to finish writing my train of thought. Otherwise, that thought will be forever gone and I will forever beat myself up for not being able to remember it.
I am a certified nerd
I was our class valedictorian and I left my first university before they can kick me out for failing so many courses for not attending them. I just couldn’t find reasons to sit in a boring class. I transferred to two more other universities and tried two more fields of studies until nobody would want to believe that I am finally getting a degree. I was even an academic scholar and paid just half of the tuition fee for the last two years of my university life without really studying. I only dragged myself to attend the classes.
Driving and directions are not part of my strengths.
I can’t drive. I mean I know how to drive but I don’t drive. I don’t have a driver’s license. Okay, I bought one in the Philippines for nearly 3 Euros but never really used it. I saw cars as responsibility and additional expense. Is is just like having a baby. I totally rely on public transport to take me places while I sleep or read while on it.
I don’t cook
I love food but I find it hard to eat after cooking and smelling what I have cooked. The food just taste bland. I need to wait until the following day to really get the taste of the food so better that I don’t cook.
I am Fake
I am good at faking accents. I don’t really know since when but I only found out not long ago that I have the tendency to somehow absorb the sounds and the antics of people I spend most of my time with quickly.
I have 3 tattoos. I once swore that I will never ever get them but starting to live abroad, it has become a part of my collection to a point that I got scared that my body will be covered with a lot of them. So now I said that I will limit getting a tattoo to countries where I will live and they must be somewhere hidden.
I am a Master
I have Masters Degree in Business Administration. Even I can’t believe that I do and sometimes I think of going for PhD or doing a different Masters again but my brain needs to rest too. Who knows what the future holds. =)
