I first read about this from Jade of Jade M. Wong then her site brought me to Rose’s blog, and Rose made it as an “open tag”. As I was about to answer it myself I saw Nj tagging me.
So I am taking on both.
Describe yourself in ONE word.
When and why did you start blogging?
I started my first post back in April of 2013. My first official WordPress poem was written on a plane on the way to Singapore.
I started at WordPress, honestly because I don’t know what to do with my creative mind since I resigned from my teaching job then. I didn’t expect I’d stay longer, but the responses were overwhelming that it kept me going…
Is there a person that you look up to? Who is it and why?
My father. HE’S THE BEST!!!!!!
What’s the perfect pair for a book, is it coffee or tea?
Without a doubt COFFEE… apart from my books, my pen, and paper; coffee has been my constant companion for the longest time.
Aside from blogging, name one activity that you truly enjoy.
Reading, it transports me to different places and sometimes different dimensions. It made me wanna be the better version of myself.
In your bucket list (or if you will have one), what country/place will be on your top spot?
Paris… I’d love to go there and shop and write poems while having coffee in a cafeteria along the sidewalks where I can see, smell, hear, and breathe people from all walks of life from different parts of the world.
Do you have a phobia? What is it?
I don’t know how you call it.. but I hate tiny animals that crawl…. example worms, baby snakes…
What’s the weirdest wish/hope that you have secretly said?
Nothing so far. I mean I don’t think it’s weird to wish/hope no matter how weird it may seem to others.
What is your favorite season and why?
Summer…its fun when the sun is out all the time.
What is that one book that touched you in a very special way?
“Have a Little Faith” by Mitch Albom. It was about the unusual request of an old man from the author to write/deliver his eulogy. Please note, the man was still alive when he asked this. It baffled me at first but as I read through it made me rediscover my purpose; about losing and finding what we’ve lost, and most especially it made me reconsider my own faith.
What’s your favorite song lyric? Why?
Currently, I am loving the song of lady gaga “I’ve got a hundred million reasons to walkway; but baby I just need one good one to stay”
It gives us so much hope ….that amidst the chaos of the world, maybe one good deed will make us hold on.
What are your name and the name of your blog? Why did you choose it as your blog name?
Michnavs ; that’s the name of my blog. is it my real name? I can’t tell.. I am yet to process the idea of coming out into the open but I was honestly inspired by what Jade did though. it was brave of her to finally come out when she reintroduced herself. will I do the same? I can’t tell. maybe in time, I will, but for now, I love to have my virtual self hanging around your wp readers. But you guys call me Mich so it’s close to that.
What, according to you, is your best quality? Why is it so?
As an adult human being (just to assure you all I am human, hahaha) I am very generous of my time and my expertise… I see people around (with all due respect, though) who are capable of helping and of sharing even their thoughts but they’d rather keep quiet. they choose never to care or be bothered at all, after all, they would say “it’s none of my business”. it could be really none of your business but I believe when we are asked then it becomes your business. and I think we need to be generous of our expertise and share it with anyone who needs it. who knows it could go a long way.
Choose a movie that describes you and tells us how?
I believe in happy endings and fairy tales. So any movie ending on a happy note would best describe my disposition in life and my persona. I believe in fairy tales… it’s like dreaming, and dreams to come true right? we just to make it happen. I may sound weird but I have been through a lot and I can say, it is my belief in “happy endings” that made me get through it all. Trust me I have my happy ending.
What’s your favorite dessert? And why?
Cheesecake- its a mixture of different tastes and texture. Just like life. It could be a little of everything…you pick up the best, spit out the bad.
Are you a forest or a beach person? What is it about your choice that you like?
None of the above actually. I’d rather sit in the comfort of my home, read and write or sit in a coffee shop. I was never been to a forest…will I try? I don’t know but the idea of crawling insects and mosquitoes freak me out. .. of course, I’ve to a beach (es)… did I like it as much as I love being at home or in a coffee shop? nahh…no.
If you were born as a tree, which tree would you pick? And why?
A bamboo tree. It’s flexible and cannot be easily toppled down by even the strongest wind. I wanna be like that… I wanna be as flexible and strong as a bamboo tree.
If today was your last day, name one person you’d like to say something to? What would you tell him/her?
It would be my dad. That I am sorry I wasn’t there when he had to bid us all goodbye.
Which is your favorite childhood game?
I honestly never played outdoor as a young girl. really. unusual?? I know.
If you could be an inanimate object, which would you pick? And why?
A pen. I want to bravely put into words the thoughts of others who are afraid to speak. I want to create life as I spill every word through my ink.
What is your favorite mode of travel?
I drive.. so it must be my car. it’s my second home
Who is your 3AM person? And why?
It’s still my dad, and would forever be my dad.
