Liebster Award and Giveaway Alert!

Friday, January 11, 2013

Whoo! I'm been so busy lately haha. I've actually been trying to schedule a number of posts and some of them I've started, but haven't actually finished. Blame it on school and the massive amount of post-December-break exams I have lol.

But because I thought my blog would feel empty without anything to post this Friday, I thought I'd take some chill time out and answer a tag in response to an award from the lovely Patty Grace Kelly. I've actually done this award once before, but it is nevertheless flattering to have been tagged again, so what the heck, why not?

The logo's changed from the last time I did this tag, but I'm sure the concept still remains:
The Liebster Blog Award is given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.
The Meaning; Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

Oh Stop it, you meme rage face

The mechanics are pretty much the same:

1. Tell 11 things about yourself
2. Answer those 11 questions which you get asked of from the blogger who nominated you.
3. Post 11 questions you want to know from the bloggers you want to nominate for the Liebster Blog Award.
4. Nominate 11 bloggers whose followers are less than 200.
5. Get in contact with those 11 bloggers to let them know that you have nominated them.

So to avoid redundancy, you can refer to my last post for the 11 things about myself. But because the last liebster award had a totally different set of questions, I thought I'd answer this one with questions from Patty herself :)

1. What is your ultimate aim you want to achieve in your life? 
I have high hopes that I can develop a drug or even elucidate a drug target that will help mankind in some way -- be it a contribution to the cure for cancer or possibly vaccines for already existing diseases -- just something that I know will help out the world in some way. It's the least that I can do with my background in the field of Molecular Biology. But also more than that I want to have a family and be a good mother. And on a more shallow note, probably live in Japan for a while lol.

2. Do you have special plans for this year 2013? 
2013, 2013, 2013. The only special plans I have this year is for the long slew of movies ahead. Have you seen the list?

2013 list of movies to look forward to and dates

3. Why do you write your blog? 
I do it mostly because I have hobbies that don't necessarily coincide with my field as well as the interests of my family and friends, so I have to have some outlet to vent out my a) fangirl feelings, b) passion for fashion and beauty, c) acquired musical tastes, d) nerdy fanspasms on movies.

4. Would you love to live in another city/country?
LOL. I accidentally answered this on the first question, but yeah. I'd love to live in Tokyo, Japan. My dream university for my MS and PhD is also there (2nd is Australia and then 3rd England).

5. What was your most beautiful moment when being an infant? 
Lol, I honestly don't know. I remember being carried around a lot. And given chocolate milk instead of just plain milk. My infant days were shallow and happy, I'm guessing.

6. Dress or Jeans? 
Dress. I find it easier to shop for dresses than for jeans. Because of my short stature, I can rarely find Jeans that fit me perfectly.

7. Love or Career? 
Career. Actually, we were asked to rank God, Academics/Career, Friends, Family and Lovelife in one of our interviews. Right now my ranking stands as so:

 God, Family, Friends, Academics/Career, Lovelife.

Lol I am such a loveless person.

8. What is your routine to get rid off the (daily) stress? 

I actually play Poupee Girl to pass the time, as well as draw, watch music videos and sleep lol. BTW, if you have a poupee, feel free to add me. And if you don't sign up here!

poupeegirl fashion brand community

9. What is your favorite candy?
I love sour candies - sour tape, Nerds, sour jellybeans, Sour Patch Kids. Anything sour :)

10. Do you remember your first EP?
I'm not entirely sure what EP stands for but if by EP you mean extended play album, my first was by Aaron Carter ahahaha. FOR SHAME.

Oh God Why meme rage face disgusted

11. What is the last book you read?
This is awkward haha. I actually finished reading a required novel for one of my classes -- The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. It's a dystopian alternate history novel wherein the entire U.S. government is overthrown in favor of a Theocratic Regime which belittles the worth of women and segregates them into utalitarian classes. It has very many feminist themes, but it also serves as a cautionary tale to people who envision a utopia but implement means which compromise the freedom and liberty of a class. LOL Literary Critique Mod ON.

So Now I'm supposed to post 11 questions, but because I'm lazy, I'll just lift them from my last post.

My 11 questions for the ones who do this tag:
1) What were your resolutions this year?
2) Have you stuck with them 'til now? (I hope so, since it hasn't even been 2 weeks yet)
3) What type of music do you listen to?
4) What are you most looking forward to right now?
5) What parts of the world have you traveled to/would like to travel to?
6) Name one person who has been a big inspiration to you as of lately. You may expound.
7) Where do you see yourself in 5 years, assuming the world does not end in 2012.
8) Are you a hipster? If you are, how hipster are you?
9) If you were a Pokemon, what Pokemon would you be and why?
10) Name one thing you would like to do/complete before you die.
11) If you had a million dollars (USD) what would you do with it? Feel free to have fun with this questions, don't be bound by morality or the world's problems. This is all about YOU.

I honestly have no idea who to nominate at the moment, so I'll update this post when I have more time to canvas for nominees. I know so few people with less than 200 followers, so I'll really have to search this time. Don't worry, I'm the type of person who lets you know on your blog if you've been nominated so you'll know. Alternatively, you can just take this award and notify me on the comments below so I can link you on this blogpost for more traffic on your blog if you please :)

EDIT: So I scoured through recent comments on my blog from people with blogs (less than 200 followers or a little bit over) I think deserve a little love. I still don't have 11, but hey, I tried LOL.

Your film list is actually very helpful haha! Now I know what films to look out for this year XD
Also totally with you on dresses over jeans! I'm short too and trousers just look weird on me unless I buy them in kids' sizes. Adult jeans scrunch up at my ankles coz they're too long which isn't a good look ><"

Thanks! hahaha the shames of my youth :P Thanks for dropping by!

Ada Agupitan said...

Haha I have to stop myself from picking out all the red sour patch kids from the pack. By the end it's only the other colors left :P

Ada Agupitan said...

Loi thanks! I'm glad it helped -- some of the dates are for Philippine Screenings though, so you might have a different premier for your country x_x

Totally get what you mean about the jeans. My mom just tells me to fold them up, but that totally ruins the style IMO. Ugh. Even having something altered is hard for me because most jeans end up being too wide for my calves D: frustrationsssss

Ada Agupitan said...

I knowwwww. Lol so glad the world didn't end in 2012 (not like I believed it would, but STILL) haha.

Amandaaa said...

ME TOO x] hahaha! the red ones are just sooo much more superior haha
