I’ve Been NOMINATED!! :D *Tap Dancing Mode Activated*

Oh-Kay this is bizarre! This blogging thing is something I do as a hobby. English isn’t my first language! I’m terrible at it. Just look at my narrative. It’s all over the place! 😛 You know, I saw so many people being nominated for their amazing and infinitely fun blogs but I had no idea whatsoever that I’d be one of them one day 😀 Thank you so very much Abyssbrain for nominating me for the Liebster Award!

Liebster Award

*hands shaking*

Control it, Abeeha! Conceal it, don’t feel it!

I know this might not be a big deal for most people, but for me, this is HUGE! Liebster Award is presented to bloggers who have less then 200 followers but have stupendous potential to grow big in the future! 🙂 You know, the only other thing I was ever nominated for was “Best Director” in a university play. I won that award by the way, but didn’t receive any recognition for it as it was all severely unofficial and the teacher ran out of funds. Yeah.

So anyway, I’ve been nominated by Abyssbrain, one of my most favorite bloggers here at WordPress. Please go check out his awesomesauce blog “Mathemagical Site” to explore the cool side of math, science and tech! ^_^ Trust me, it’s incredible! 

Now, it’s time for answering the 10 questions:

1. What is your opinion of mathematics in general?

Maths and I, we never got along much :/ I always scored so poorly in it. But as I grew older I began to appreciate it more and study it with enthusiasm because I realized that it’s significance can not be ignored. Everything we humans have achieved today, especially in the field of science and technology, we owe it all to mathematics.

2. On a scale of 1 to 10, how reliant are you on technology? Explain.

I would have to say, 9. My whole life revolves around technology. As a student I’m reliant on my laptop 24/7. The age of destroying trees for the sake of academics is long gone. And as a “Couch Potahto” all my hobbies relating to watching movies, shows, music, books, (and blogging), all of the magic happens on my TV, laptop and tablet. Now don’t get me started on mobile phones, cars, refrigerators, air conditioners and every other single thing that involves tech coz then this’ll turn into an exhaustively long post 😀

3. What are your top 3 favorite books?

  1. The Dark Tower Series” (all seven books) by Stephen King. He is the reason I started to love reading.
  2. Station Eleven” by Emily St. John Mandel. This book is beautiful beyond words. You might think that a post-pandemic world which has wiped almost all of human existence (and all of technology) would be drought of hope, but this book will make you think otherwise.
  3. Us” by David Nicholls. A story about a failing marriage and a man’s fight to sustain it, all the while travelling through the entire Europe. This book is so vivid in its exploration of Europe, it’s culture and the way it digs into the dynamics of a complex relationship that it just leaves you in awe.

4. If somebody ask you to give a random advice, what would you say?

Wanna be happy in life? Get rid of all those people who shackle you to the ground and never let you realize your true potential. It may involve your friends or even who you think as your significant other. If they take you forgranted, please rip that relation off like a contaminated band-aid.

5. What is the most boring and tedious thing that you have ever done?

Trying to learn new words from Oxford’s dictionary.Most boring thing I’ve ever done.

6. If you could have any job that you wanted, what would it be?

Work as a traveler for the Discovery Channel or the National Geographic Channel. Please hire me 😥

7. What are some of your happiest childhood memories?

  1. My dad gifting me video cassettes of Disney cartoons, every weekend. Oh the joy I felt!
  2. Watching “The Green Mile” with my mother at the age of 6 and crying with her at the end.
  3. My grandpa letting me watch him shave his beard with his old antique shaving tools. He never let anyone near those tools except me.

8. What song best describes your life?

Song for Zula” by Phosphorescent. I’ve seen love in my life in various forms. Not necessarily in the terms of ‘love of a partner’. Nope, that is yet to come. But whenever I’ve opened up myself to someone, they have screwed me over. To them I would say what Phosphorescent said in this song, “But my heart is wild, and my bones are steel; and I could kill you with my bare hands if I was free”. So, yeah this song pretty much sums up my thoughts on my personal life.

9. What is the most confusing movie that you have ever watched?

The Fountain. That movie just went wayyyy over my head.

10. If you can choose any category on a quiz show, which category would you choose?

Pop Culture. I would totally nail that. Boom!

I hope you liked my answers. *fingers crossed*

    Nice answers. Though I can’t help but to laugh when you said that you have read the dictionary to learn new words. Yes, I can imagine how boring it would be, it must be more boring than what our accounting department is doing :).

    I learned my vocabulary through vocabulary builder books which are your best bet for learning new words efficiently. If you don’t prefer books, I have found this site listing some of the best sites for learning new words.

    http://www.educatorstechnology.com/2013/02/16-websites-to-teach-and-learn.html

    I’m not familiar with some of these sites but they must be good since they are grouped with some of best vocabulary sites.

    I’ve also found this site for learning vocabulary in an offbeat way.

    http://lyricstraining.com/

    And in this site, you can test how many English words on average that you know. I scored 33854, try to beat that 🙂

      Hahaha it was so painfully boring that I just went through 2 pages of “A”, 3 pages of “B” and 1 page of “C” and then I quit.. I knew it I’m going to forget them anyway in a few days so why put myself through such a dull activity :/
      And woah thank you so much for the websites :O These are amazing! I will definitely go through them tonight and bookmark the ones I’m more comfortable with 🙂 And I’m not gonna take the Vocab Test until I’ve improved mine 😛 As I said, English isn’t even my first language so I’m not really good at it 😦

        Well, English is not my first language as well but I’m confident that I can beat some of the native speakers in terms of English vocabulary knowledge haha…

        You know I read somewhere that us non-native speakers of English are sometimes better at their language than they are. :3 Btw I hope I can beat your score soon 😉

        I sugget that you try the vocab test now so that you will have a benchmark for gauging your progress. And if you want, you can tell me your score 🙂

        What score did you get?

        That’s actually quite high! I’ve seen on their data that many native speakers didn’t even score that high. I think that you already know a decent number of words. So, you just have to practice more on word usage.

        Every time I learn a new word, I write 3 sentences using that word. That’s a good way to remember it.

        It is? Woah, now I’m feeling better about myself 😀 And yeah that’s exactly the problem with me.. I know the meaning but when it comes to usage in a sentence I fall short of words 😦 I should try your methodology from now on! Those sites are now gonna come in handy. 🙂

    Thank you for your gratitude on nominating for the Liebster Award but I have to decline at the present time. I’ve just started school and will be with my daughter quite a bit in the coming weeks and just won’t have the time to properly put in the effort this requires. Again though many thanks, I’m flattered.
