10 Facts About Me

One lovely blog award

Once again, Shannon has nominated me for an award! This time, it is the “One Lovely Blog Award”! Honestly, I think Shannon just wants me to get more exposure. She is so sweet. I love how the blogging community is so giving and caring. We don’t personally know each other, but we wish the best to all our fellow bloggers.

The Rules

  • You must thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  • You must list the rules and display the award.
  • You must add 7 facts about yourself.
  • You must nominate 15 other bloggers and comment on one of their posts to let them know they have been nominated.

Okay, I never follow the rules. I am going to list 10 facts about myself, and nominate 5 other bloggers! Haha.

  1. I value experiences over things. I find meaning in experiences, whereas, buying or receiving something only satisfy me briefly.
  2. I love inspirational things and inspiring others. I like knowing that I have affected someone’s life in a positive manner.
  3. I love expressing myself. I want people to feel and understand my emotions. When I play a sad song, I want you to feel it right in the gut. When I write an inspirational post, I want you to feel empowered. When I speak, I want you to know that I care.
  4. I love music and I love to sing. I love songs with a good melody and meaningful lyrics. I often youtube a lot of songs I like, and sing along.
  5. I’ve learnt to read tremendous amount of Chinese due to my love for karaoke. Chinese school was rote memorization. Karaoke is intrinsic motivation. Guess which one worked better? Haha.
  6. I have extremely traditional Asian parents. In fact, they inspired me to write a post called How most Asian parents think.
  7. I believe we have the power to change our lives, if we choose to. You may have a difficult past, but it doesn’t mean you have to have a terrible future.
  8. I want to live with no regrets and pursue what I am passionate about.
  9. I actually have a teaching degree from OISE. However, I only did it to please my parents. They were ecstatic when they found out I got accepted. I don’t regret completing it, but I have no passion in teaching young children.
  10. I want to be a Financial Planner/Advisor, so I ended up completing a post-graduate certificate in Financial Planning at George Brown College. I completed my CSC, FPSC Level 1, and my LLQP examination as well. I was super determined and finished all of this within 13 months. If you really want something, you gotta hustle!!

Last year, I was very ill and I was hospitalized for two months. Today, I still have my good and bad days. However, overall I am doing much better compared to last year. Currently, I’m still in the process of healing. I will work again once I’m better.

Hope you enjoyed my 10 facts!
