Tagged!

Hello, we were tagged by study-ninja! Since Ashley did the tagged questions last time (check out her answers here!), I figured I would take this round. :o)

  1. If you knew that you couldn’t fail, what career would you pursue?
    My current career goal (novelist/writer/journalist).
  2. What motivates you to study?
    So many things! My family, my friends, my passions, my goals and my desire to always enjoy life. :D
  3. What is your favorite quote?
    I have so many… Omg… Um, one of them is probably from Epik High’s song 연필깎이 (Pencil Sharpener): “You’ve got a beautiful mind; colour the black and white world with your beautiful rhyme.”
  4. Do you have any learning disabilities? Any tips on how to overcome them?
    No, I do not. As for tips, I don’t know where to begin, as there are so many different ways to deal with learning disabilities. I think one of the best tips I have (in general) is having someone close by to lean on – having a friend, a parent or family member who you can draw strength and motivation from is important. It’s also really important to self-motivate yourself and trust yourself. I know it can be hard, but being patient with yourself is key.
  5. You find a lamp and a genie comes out and gives you three wishes, what would they be?
    I would wish for animal abuse/poaching to cease to exist, for world peace, and for my family to have whatever they wish! :o)
  6. What is your favorite book?
    The Alchemist by Paul Coelho and the Harry Potter series.
  7. How long do you study each day?
    Well, this really depends… I generally only study during the exam period because my university degree is assignment/essay based. Sometimes my courses don’t even have final exams! If I do have to study, it is mostly lots of literature reading – because I love doing that, I can study for hours and it won’t feel that way at all.
  8. What part of your studies do you like the least?
    APA/MLA referencing… :x
  9. What snacks would you recommend when one has cravings?
    Unsalted popcorn, greek yoghurt with sliced strawberries/raspberries/blueberries and wheat crackers. :3
  10. How many school supplies have you bought but ended up not using?
    Hundreds… Thousands… Millions… Why does no one stop me…?
  11. When you are having a hard time concentrating on studying what do you do?
    I stop studying. I do not force myself. If my mind is on something else, I will go and confront that thing and then return to studying. I believe it is too difficult to force one’s mind to focus on something that it doesn’t want to. If my brain needs a break, I give it one!

Eleven question for whoever wants to participate:

  1. What is your greatest joy in life?
  2. What is the one food you have always wanted to eat but have never gotten a chance to?
  3. When was the last time you laughed so hard you cried and why?
  4. Do you reward yourself after a long day of studying? If so, how?
  5. What is your favourite book to re-read?
  6. Who is your role model and why?
  7. Do you like animals?
  8. When you were little, what did you want to grow up to be?
  9. What do you personally just love about your appearance?
  10. What kind of style (fashion-wise) do you have (if at all)?
  11. If you could take a gap year and go wherever you so please, where would you go?
