To my dear readers,
I am featured in a podcast with some of my friends from Faulty Logix! In the episode, I shared about why I started blogging, some of my most popular posts, some personal stories (including receiving an inappropriate pic once!) The guys and I also had a discussion about whether guys and girls can be purely friends. Feel free to listen! If you like what you hear, don’t forget to subscribe and follow them!
On another note, I want to tell you guys how to get close to someone. The key, is to ask the right questions. Oftentimes, the questions we ask or get asked are too surface level. Ex. “Hey, what’s new?” “How’s work?” These type of questions will usually only give you short and simple responses.
In order to really get to know someone, you have to dig deeper. Here are some deeper questions you could ask:
1. Who is your hero? What qualities make them your choice?
2. If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would buy? Why?
3. What values are important to you?
4. What scares you?
5. What makes you feel alive?
These questions will definitely give you a much better idea of what the person is like because answering these questions require a lot more thought. The person actually has to think and be a bit vulnerable.
Note: If you’re unwilling to share anything personal about yourself, you’ll never truly feel a connection with someone. It takes two to clap!
Lastly, I would like to promote my translations! I’m officially part of volare now!!
The novel that I have translated is called, “Your Highness, I know my wrongs”!!
It’s about a woman named Lin Shan who somehow ended up in Ancient China. When she arrived, she had to be disguised as a man due to some superstitious reasons at the time. Lin Shan was ordered by the Emperor to marry his daughter, Du Ming Yue. (Song Luo was her name in the Ancient world)
“Luo-er, your life is at stake. For the sake of the Song Family, old and young, please do not take this white cloth off, understand?”Seeing how solemn her mother was, Lin Shan swallowed down the words that she had wanted to say.
After her chest was all covered, Song Luo wore the outfit that was sent from the Palace. Soon, she was ready to go live with her wife’s family.
How can she get away with this? Read to find out!!
