Liebster Award

Background

ATE KATE Pedroso, sister of my MBB classmate Wegs, tagged me for the Liebster Award, which is given to up-and-coming bloggers with less than 200 followers. I don't know what the award means exactly, who invented it, if there's cash involved, or how many followers I have (I don't keep track), but I went ahead because it's been a long time since I did a meme. So thanks, Ate Kate!

Eleven Facts About Myself

1. I'm tired and sleep-deprived. 
2. I've lost count of random patients—12 of them, I think—who told me I look like Aiza Seguerra.
3. My favorite TV series: Generation Kill, Breaking Bad, and Homeland—all of them with some form of violence involved. I can't stand shows with vampires.
4. I don't comb my hair.
5. I like tea.
6. I dream in color.
7. I associate pus with yema.
8. I like cheap cell phones. I won't get frustrated when they're stolen. And they're all I can afford.
9. I'm a mess when I eat. 
10. I like collecting eyeglasses.
11. I write really fast. 

Questions from Kate

What was the first cell phone you owned? Do you still have it? If not, how did you lose it?
Nokia 3310. I dropped it during class. 

Android or iOS? Why?
iOS looks neater, I think.

What do you think is your greatest achievement? (Naks, gusto ko yung sagot nagsisimula sa, Thank you for your very good question.)
Thank you very much for your very good question. I swam one lap in an Olympic-sized pool and didn't drown in the process.

If you were a Mortal Kombat character, how would your Fatality move look like? (FINISH HIM!)
I become a giant, swallow my enemy whole, then spit out his bones, pretty much like what you do with Max's fried chicken.

Which musical group (local/foreign) are you dying to see live?
Performers from the Sovereign Grace Music. Bob Kauflin's team, especially.

If you were a pizza, what would your toppings be and why? (Or why not? LOL.)
Cheese. Because I'm cheesy like that.

What’s the most valuable advice you can give to your 18-year-old self?
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight." Also, "Eat a lot—you look emaciated."

Share the song that’s on loop in your head right now.
"All I Have Is Christ." I listened to it during my quiet time at 4 am this morning, and it's been playing in my head over and over again. Here's the first stanza:
I once was lost in darkest night
Yet thought I knew the way
The sin that promised joy and life
Had led me to the grave
I had no hope that You would own
A rebel to Your will
And if You had not loved me first
I would refuse You still
In a sense, the entire song summarizes my life story.

Also, "She's Gone" by Hall and Oates.

What TV series (local/foreign) are you watching right now?
Homeland, The Good Wife, Emily Owens MD, and A Young Doctor's Notebook.

They’re going to make an ALL-GIRL EXPENDABLES-ISH MOVIE! Please suggest a woman you think should be on it.
Marian Rivera.

If you could write a children’s storybook about anything, what would it be about?
A short, wispy kid with powers of manipulation.

Now, it's my turn to ask.

1. Do you dream in color?
2. What did you do with your first salary?
3. What are the books that you've read more than once?
4. Your dream job?
5. What's the greatest moral issue of our time?
6. Describe how you look to a blind man.
7. Name three words you have a hard time spelling.
8. What are the places you like to visit someday?
9. Your greatest frustration?
10. How do you cope with loss?
11. What's the next language you want to learn, and why?
