What is the Mystery blogger Award?

I wanted to find out what this award actually meant and where it came from so I googled it and was really happy with what I found. Check out this post by the original creator for more info!

  • I watch Anime, Japanese, Taiwanese (I’ve only seen one but I loved it lol), and Korean dramas, and listening to K-pop, so I guess I can say I’m really into East Asian culture. What I like is how innocent and “pure” the shows and music are compared to what’s in the U.S. I also don’t like constantly watching and listening to things in English anymore, I’m not sure why.
  • My first cat died in 2017 and it really inspired me to do something to help them since usually they need a hand to have healthier happier lives.
  • In junior high, I got involved in a fight that I was trying to stop(lol) I got detention for it too :/


Questions Anny Asked

  1. Which season (spring, summer, autumn, winter) do you prefer? Why?
    • I love Autumn the most. Sweater weather is my favorite kind of weather. I just enjoy everything that comes to mind when you think of Autumn.

  2. What is something you failed at and what did you learn from it?
    • I failed at doing multiple things at once which was: college, working, and living with my boyfriend plus taking care of our baby cat. It was a lot to juggle for me because I’ve never had that much responsibility before. At the time, I would constantly look at the bad side of things which didn’t help my mental health. By the time my last semester of school was ending, my relationship was also kinda coming to an end in a way.
    • What I learned from that situation was to be grateful for what I have, don’t get overwhelmed by current situations and don’t be pressured by others. I had an easy student aide job, went to school for free and lived with my soulmate and cat. Even if I was living my dream, I let people bring me down and make me feel like crap, which made me treat myself and my boyfriend like crap. That’s not the right way to take out your frustrations. I’m really glad I went through those struggles, though, because it taught me a ton.
  3. What do you do when you feel down/sad?
    • If I get sad it’s usually around my bedtime, so I quickly message my boyfriend and tell him what’s wrong. He usually reminds me of my goals and that kinda makes me feel better. If I still feel sad I’ll give myself time to be alone and end up looking at videos of my favorite kpop groups (lol). They always make me feel happy cause some groups go through a lot of struggles, so that gives me a lot of inspiration and motivation to be happy.
  4. What did you want to become when you were little? Did you change your mind? Or did you stick with it?
    • I wanted to be a ton of things (and still kinda do) including: Teacher, Programmer, and Vet. I never thought about being a full-time blogger. Maybe I’ll do other things on top of blogging, but I don’t have any plans of working for someone else.

  5. What is the one thing you enjoy about blogging?
    • One thing I enjoy is the fact that I can make money off of it. I never really knew about blogging, all I knew was articles were being made on the web. I never realized all these big sites actually make money from having visitors, so I’m really happy I can make money off something like this.

  • Aww thank you so much for the tag sweet pea! 😀 I’m going to answer my questions in the comment (FINALLY!) as I’ve already done this tag. 🙂

    Have you ever been to a concert? If so, who did you see?
    I’ve been to many over the years including Busted, Bob Dylan, Foo Fighters, My Chemical Romance (twice), Evanescence (twice), cKy, The Pretty Reckless, McFly and more! 😀

    Favorite thing about yourself?
    Probably my teeth. I just love how perfect they are. Due to sucking my thumb as a kid I had a gap in my teeth but as I sucked it less the gap came together. I also had quite stained teeth growing up due to being a lazy teenager with oral care. Which is super gross, but true. Now I brush my teeth twice without delay!

    What’s a memory you will never forget?
    The day I met my boyfriend and all the things we spoke about that day. It was such a lovely evening and I’ll never forget the day I met him.

    Where are you from, and do you plan on moving far away or staying in that area forever?
    I’m from Birmingham, UK. I would love to move to Japan one day for a short period of time, as well as Fuerteventura which is my second home. 🙂

    What are your thoughts/opinions on blogging?
    I love blogging! Over the years due to YouTubers cough Zoella cough people want to just have a job as a blogger or YouTuber and sadly that isn’t realistic, especially these days. Blogging is an amazing hobby to have for talking about all sorts of things you love, as well as sharing these with other people who love them too! 😀

    • thanks so much for sharing! <3
      I actually saw MCR too with my friend! they were reeally far away from us tho lol! that’s awesome you got to see so many!!!
      ahh i actually got crooked teeth and i really hate when people with straight teeth dont brush them and they have food stuck! It’s like, wow, you don’t know how good you have it lol
      That’s so great that you met your boyfriend and it became a memorable moment. I think mine is memorable too, it’s super special when you can share a good moment with someone else <3
      And wow, i never heard of fuerteventura, i had to google it lol. it looks super pretty !!
      tysm for sharing this again xoxo

  • Your blog is so cute! I love the soft brown color that your blog had.

    Yay with autumn! Autumn gives some sort of dreamy vibe with all the leaves that changed colours to red and the cool weather is so perfect for reading book while drinking a cup of hot cocoa.

    And your bf sounds sweet! #singlemecouldn’trelate LOL

  • Your blog is beautiful, and thank you for this lovely post nomination! I’m curious which Taiwanese show it was? would love to get into one haha. I hope it’s okay to answer here:

    Have you ever been to a concert? If so, who did you see? I’ve been to lots of classical concerts, as I played the flute and piano growing up, but my first big concert was J Cole last year!

    Favorite thing about yourself? My Smile!

    What’s a memory you will never forget? Oo, so many! a random memory was having a water fight with my sister when we were young, it was so fun.

    Where are you from, and do you plan on moving far away or staying in that area forever? I’m living in NZ, but would love to live in Asia some day.

    What are your thoughts/opinions on blogging? I love blogging, and I love reading other blogs (such as yours). I think it’s a great community, and it’s great to talk to different people, and have a space where you can share thoughts and stories.

    • Thanks Katie! Your blog is so pretty too! I love going to it because of the cover art you use and your header pic is my favorite I love cats lol
      The Taiwanese movie is called Hear Me. It’s super cute and definitely one of my favorites.

      Yes it’s ok to answer here lol
      Oh so cool! I haven’t seen an artist like JCole before, only bands haha. I didn’t know you played instruments, wow. So you were in a band or something right?
      Ah that reminds me of a water fight my elementary school had. I played with my best friend at the time. I also had one with my cousin lol, those water fights are always memorable 🙂

      I love NZ! I never been there but I follow a girl on snap chat who lives there. She posts the prettiest stuff all the time and the bullet train she goes on passes by water and a bunch of nature or something, it looks so pretty. I also read the happiest people live in NZ lol
      Thanks for sharing ! Ahh I’m so happy you like to read my blog too <3

      • Awww as soon as I saw what movie it was I watched it! Thank you so much for the recommendation, the actress is very sweet, and it’s a touching film. So happy that you love cats too, I always love meeting fellow cat lovers 😀 I used to be in orchestras and Jazz band. That’s great, those are such special memories that we can cherish. Yay, I’m so glad, New Zealand really is such an amazing country, and I feel truly blessed to grow up here <3 <3

  • Girl, your blog is seriously the CUTEST! I’m actually obsessed with your photos and designs. P.S. So awesome to find another blogger from Chicago, yesss. 💖Congrats on getting nominated for the Mystery Blogger award! This post was really fun to read. I definitely feel you on juggling too many things at once. I experienced that when I first graduated college, and I’m still trying to figure it all out, tbh. It takes time! 🙂
