Get To Know Me Better in 22 Questions
I have been nominated by Mei and Kelly to participate in the Liebster Award tag, but since I already did this before, I will not be doing it again. However, I will still be answering their questions because Q&As are a really great way for you guys to get to know me better! But I want to know more about you too! So let's do this: if you don't mind, please also answer at least 3-5 questions in the comment section!
Questions by Mei:
1. If given a chance to change your name, would you? And what would be your new name? (Because I used to want to change mine to Cassandra haha)
I used to hate my name because the letter "C" was so simple that it didn't look nice in cursive! HAHA. I know, it's so shallow right? But as I grew older, I've come to realize how beautiful my name is because of its uniqueness. So no, if given the chance to change my name, I wouldn't. :) And hey, Cassandra is a nice name!
2. What is your greatest achievement so far?
For me, my greatest achievement so far is the fact that I'm able to work full time as a blogger, YouTuber, and social media influencer. I'm not earning as much as I used to, but this job is definitely more fulfilling. This was my dream 5 years ago, and I'm finally living it out!
3. Can you describe the most difficult situation you were in?
What immediately popped into my head were the times when my sisters and I had nothing to eat, no electricity, no water, no working bathroom, nothing. There were times when we even had to take a dump inside a milk can because our aunt didn't let us use her bathroom. It was that bad! We were soooo poor, that I'm still in awe at how God took us out of that life.
4. How do you see yourself 5 years from now?
I see myself living at Jorge and I's own apartment, cuddling a beautiful baby (maybe two), and still doing what I'm doing now, but with more audience. :)
5. What’s your point of view on sex and marriage?
Be one with God first, then He will take care of the rest. I know it's so vague, but it's legit the only way, if you want to live your life pleasing the Lord. I didn't wait for the right time and right person, and that led me to a lot of painful heartbreaks. The moment I let God take control of my heart, He brought Jorge into my life, and the rest is already a series of blog posts hehe. Be in a relationship with God, then in that season, He will prepare your heart and your whole being for the person He's also preparing for you. When you meet that person, you'll just know.
6. What do you do for a living?
I'm a full time blogger and YouTuber! WOOT WOOT!
7. What are 3 things you love and hate the most about your self?
I love: that I can sing and use that talent for God's glory, my eyes which I got from my mama, the life I've been given
I hate: my teeth (huhu), that I'm always hungry, how impatient I get sometimes
8. What’s your favorite recipe? (Please share because I’m currently explanding my knowledge on cooking! hehe)
I don't really cook so I don't think I can answer this haha.
9. What’s your dream job?
10. When was the last time you laughed so hard? (Mine was yesterday when I told Gerald the amount of our credit card bills! It was so high, we just had to laugh it off! Hahahaha)
Yesterday too! Jorge did something that made me laugh so hard hahaha.
11. Do you have a bucket list? What are 3 things you haven’t accomplished yet?
I believe I used to, but I don't know where it is now, and I don't remember the stuff I listed down. But I guess my main goal is to just travel the world. :)
Questions by Kelly Jessica:
1. If you could live in another country, where and why?
I would probably want to live in Iceland, just because it looks so magical! But I haven't visited yet so I don't really know the way of life there. Hopefully it's as good as the photos I've been seeing on Instagram.
2. What is/are your guilty pleasures?
Guilty pleasures: my Starbucks white mocha, and Salt & Vinegar chips. I haven't had chips in over a month so I'm really proud of myself!
3. Dogs or cats?
I used to like cats all the way, but recently, I've been liking the idea of having a dog. But I would probably still go for cats. HAHA.
4. Any messages to those who broke you?
Thank you, because I've learned so much through the pain you've put me through. I believe that God allowed those situations to happen to mold me into the person I am today.
5. Any messages to those who stayed through thick and thin?
Thank you for sticking it out. Thank you for believing in me, thank you for loving me, and thank you for pushing me to be a better person. Here's to a longer, and even stronger relationship.
6. When and how did you find your love for blogging?
I have no idea! It might have started on Multiply, and I guess I just enjoyed writing my heart out. I saw it as a way of documenting how I felt, how my brain worked in constructing sentences, and then it evolved into this. HAHA. A blog with more professional writing and photography, but still the same heart behind it all.
7. When life gets hard, how do you handle it?
I pray, I cry it out, and I ask for a hug and a kiss from my husband.
8. What is your favorite TV Show/Korean Drama?
I have a bunch! The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Hunter X Hunter, Detective Conan, How To Get Away with Murder, The Vampire Diaries, FRIENDS, a bunch more. Right now, I'm really liking House M.D. I can't remember the last Korean drama I've seen but the ones that I liked a lot are Jang Geum (is that how you spell it? haha), Full House, and Stairway to Heaven.
9. Who is your hero?
10. Percy Jackson series or Harry Potter series?
I have read book one of the Harry Potter series, and none of the Percy Jackson one, so I guess Harry Potter. HAHA.
11. Your thoughts about Glenn’s death on The Walking Dead? Or just share any random information about yourself. (Sobrang sabaw na ako, please forgive me)
I wasn't expecting Glenn's death at all and I was so shocked the way he died! It was so devastating and I actually let out a loud gasp when that happened! HUHUHU. :(((( As for the random information about myself, when I allow myself to be lazy, I will be 100% lazy and not feel bad about it! HAHA. It's so bad, but I guess you can add this fact to my guilty pleasures.
So this wraps up this Q&A! Please don't forget to pick out 3 questions from above to answer in the comment section below! I would love to know more about you as well! :)
