Mystery Blogger Award

Hi guys! As you might have noticed, I’ve been quite busy these days that I almost have no time to post here anymore. I’m currently working on my undergraduate thesis and other school stuff.

Anyway, I would like to thank to my dear friend, Ashutosh Gursale of The Honest Fabler, for nominating me in this chain of Mystery Blogger Award. I am so honored and surprised when he nominated me for something related to writing because I, myself, am a huge fan of his works and I never thought he would remember mine.

So, what is The Mystery Blogger Award?

“The Mystery Blogger Award was created by Okoto Enigma and is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.”

The Rules:

  • Display the award logo on your blog.
  • List the Rules.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well.
  • Tell your readers three things about yourself.

  • Ask your nominees any five questions of your choice, including one weird or funny question.
  • Share the link to your best post.

3 Things About Myself:

  • I love reading books particularly those that tackle mental health. I enjoy reading poems and essays as well. Sylvia Plath and Sarah J. Maas are my favorite authors.
  • According to Myer’s-Briggs 16 personality types, I am an INFP or a Mediator. INFPs are said to be poetic, kind and altruistic people, always eager to help a good cause. People of this type also tend to be: quiet, and reserved; deeply passionate, sensitive, and easily hurt; loving and dedicated to those close to them; creative, original, and imaginative; curious and flexible in small matters; nonconforming. INFPs are usually talented writers. They may be awkward and uncomfortable with expressing themselves verbally, but have a wonderful ability to define and express what they’re feeling on paper. INFPs who function in their well-developed sides can accomplish great and wonderful things, which they will rarely give themselves credit for. Some of the great, humanistic catalysts in the world have been INFPs. In conclusion, these are deep, complex, somewhat melancholy people who are hard to understand.
  • I love cats!

Answering The Honest Fabler’s Questions:

1.Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging because as an introvert, I find it hard to express and make myself understood. I usually don’t talk about my opinions and feelings in real life so I find blogging or writing the easiest way to let all that out.

2.When was the last time you had the heartiest laugh? (A happy memory)

Um, is this a trick question? Haha. I honestly can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard but a happy memory I’d like to share is when I met my favorite author, Sarah J. Maas last year. We talked for a few minutes and then she signed my books. I also had a conversation with her husband named Josh. They were both so nice and gorgeous! I mean, look!

my favorite author just met an actual angel. never forget 3/13/16.

3.Where would you want to travel to?

I would like to travel just anywhere where I can paint/read/write in peace. I’ve been so deprived of silence and tranquility lately and I crave those things so much.

4.Which novel or poem you hold close to your heart?

This has to be either Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas or The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath.

5.What would you want to change about your life? Why?

My college [life]. Why? Because the moment I entered college I stopped doing everything I used to like to do. I lost my passion and love for writing, art and living but I am on my way to getting it all back.

I Nominate:

My Questions To The Nominees:

  1. What’s your personality type? (If you do not know yet, you can take this test.)
  2. Name one dead person you’d like to meet and state the thing you’d say/ask to him/her.
  3. If you have one book you’d like to burn because it’s so horribly written and awfully flawed, what would that book be?
  4. Regardless of religion or other forms of beliefs, name one thing in nature you’d like to be reborn as. (flower, tree etc.) Why?
  5. Are you afraid of dying? Why or why not?

PS: I’m looking forward to your feedback as well as your answers to my questions. I’m so excited to read those! This is going to be so interesting.

To end this, here’s the link to my best post: Excavations of the Mind

  2. Congrats on the award!

    To answer your questions:

    1) My personality is a mish mash of intorverted extrovert but usually only when it comes to talking about books.
    2) Christopher Hitchens, I would ask him for a comprehensive reading list as I have watched all his YouTube stuff (I believe) and am working my way through his books. Such an educated man, I am sure he would find me tons of books to read.
    3) The book I’d burn, or more preferably recycle would be the Da Vinci Code, absolute rubbish it was, terrible book, it only beat Fifty Shades of Grey because people don’t make stupid conspiracies out of it.
    4) I would lov to be a sea shell, to lay on a beach somewhere and be collected by a fascinated hand or wash about in the sea for a time.
    5) I am afraid of the unknown after death of what is there, if anything but not of death itself.
