Hey peeps! I’m back after a few days of not posting! Not everything is about blogmas anymore though, sorry! 🙂
I’ve been meaning to get this post out for a while now. Thank you Nathalie for tagging me for this challenge!! I was actually tagged over Instagram but I figured it would be better to put this on my blog 🙂 If you want to check out Nathalie’s page, you can do so at https://brysalie.wordpress.com! Also her Instagram is worth taking a look, she’s such a sweet girl who takes amazing pictures!!
1. I was born in the Philippines
I don’t know if I already threw this fact out in my previous tag posts but whatever. I am Chinese and Filipino and was born in the Philippines! I moved with my family to the United States at the age of 6. Unfortunately I don’t remember too much of what life was like in the Philippines, and unfortunately I feel like I’ve lost touch with those roots (It’s funny, I can’t relate to people here but I feel like I don’t belong among other Filipinos / Filipinas!). I can only speak broken Tagalog, and Fookien (we are actually Mandarin, but we speak mainly Fookien or Fujianese) is even bigger of a challenge to me. I can, however, understand both languages! I really would love to re-learn to speak both languages one day.
2. I really enjoy art
If I had to go back to school, I’d probably go to Graphic Design and Marketing or something like that. I took Graphic Design when I was in high school, and I really enjoyed it!! Things came to me easily, and I was able to understand concepts fairly easily without trying too hard to memorize (unlike everything else in school). I LOVED making vinyl stickers or vinyl tees and I loved messing around with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I decided against pursuing Graphic Design in college because I wanted something more secure and higher paying for my future, as well as plentiful in my area (just to let you know, I live in a rural-ish place so skilled trades like welding, carpentry, and agricultural work is much more plentiful here).
3. I constantly change my vision of my future
In the past, I’ve had dreams of opening my own nail salon (I LOVED doing my nails and making different designs on them. I’m not as into it anymore as I was back in high school). One day, I dreamt of having my own business selling lip balm and body care items. Another day, I dreamt of making a living off of streaming games on Twitch (HA). I dreamt of having my own Youtube channel and making it big that way. I dreamt of having a blog and making a full time income off of it. Now, I’m also dreaming of making and selling my own coloring book (it would be AMAZING if I could also get it printed hard copy too!!) and making a stationary business in part with my blog. I’m a bit all over the place, but for now, my dream of making my blog a source of income and the dream of the coloring book and stationary business are what I’d like to pursue! I’ll keep you updated on how I’m doing with those 😉😆
4. I prefer shoe shopping over clothes shopping
I never really liked clothes shopping (probably because all I can afford is to look through the stupid clearance racks where I struggled to find something in my size and something I liked). I mean, shoes aren’t all that cheap either but I LOVE IT! I’ve lost count over how many pairs of shoes I have; it’s safe to say between 30-40 pairs. If you read my boyfriend tag, my boyfriend Victor said it was a “weird” obsession. He hasn’t met or spoke to other girls, apparently.
5. I HATE PHYSICS!!!
I hate physics with a passion. I never did really well with Physics in school and if I did, I struggled… a LOT. I attended tutoring during my first year of college and it was still so hard for me. This was one of the big things that contributed to my constant severe panic attacks! If I have to take another class of Physics, just fail me.
