My Answers:

1. Which is your dream destination? And why?

If it wasn’t so expensive I would really like to live in Hawaii. It’s a beautiful island, it’s out of the way from any neighboring states and it’s still in the U.S. so it wouldn’t be too much of a culture shock. 

2.What are the three things anybody would notice about you the first time they met you (in person)?

As far as my physical appearance, people usually point out that I’m short and they think I am part Chinese. Personality wise, people assume that I am introverted.

3. What do you think is your biggest weakness?

At times, I’ll overwork myself and I can be too driven to the point where I will go hours without food or sleep. 

4. Cats or Dogs?

Both! I love animals. 

5. What is your idea of fashion (comfort/style)?

I was never one to be a slave to fashion so I don’t necessarily strive to dress like every 23-year-old woman my age does. My favorite eras are the 60’s and 70’s so a lot of my personal style reflects that. I like to see people wear clothes that are neat and elegant (not necessarily expensive) but still reflects their own personal style and tastes. 

6.Which is your favorite season of the year?

When I lived up north, I preferred the Summer time because during the Spring it was still too cold for my comfort. Now that I live in the south, I prefer the Spring because we have a pleasant mixture of warm weather with a nice cool breeze. 

7.What is your favorite book?

I have a favorite series rather than a favorite book and that would be the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson. I was required to read the first three books in my Biology class in high school. I normally don’t like the books that teachers assign in school and I didn’t particularly like this teacher but I enjoyed the books so I went out and bought the following four from the series. I still need to read the final installment which I am reluctant to do because I don’t want the story to end. 

8. What is the one thing that turns you off?

Laziness and people who are unenthusiastic about life and learning new things (I know, that was three things :P). 

9. How would you define happiness?

Happiness to me is accepting yourself and who you have become as a person. Yes, being around people that love and care about you contribute to happiness but if you don’t have high self-esteem and are not happy within yourself, then no outside group or event will make you truly happy.   

10. Name your favorite actors!

My favorite actors are Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, Robert Downey Jr., Meryl Streep, Katherine Hepburn, Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, and Alfre Woodard. 

11. Would you rather be born again or live one happy life? Why?

I want to live a happy life and pass on peacefully. Unless, I could also once again see my loved ones, I wouldn’t want to start my whole life over again up until the time of my birth. That’s entirely too long of a journey.

  1. Congratulations! I enjoyed learning new things about you 🙂 I, too, like Denzel Washington and Robert Downy, Jr. (His old and new stuff). And, you’re right, you have to like yourself. You can’t always look to others to make you happy. True happiness that lasts, starts with being happy with yourself. Thank you for sharing! (I also agree that Visakha’s blog is worth visiting)
