2) Why do you do what you do?
Well, I’m traveling right now and I do it because I’m absolutely fascinated by other cultures. Since I was very little, I remember my mom always taking me and my brother around, visiting various places/countries; so perhaps I got the “bug” from that :P But I also believe it’s such a valuable investment because it’s essentially knowledge and education, is it not? Not only are you witnessing a different perspective on life and culture, but I think it opens your eyes to the “bigger picture” of the world and issues that address humanity on a whole.
3) Who was the last person you kissed?
The cutest little baby at our church! I hope I can have a daughter just like her.
4) When was the last time you felt loved?
It may sound cliche, but i feel extremely loved right now from my mom. She’s the one I’m traveling with right now, and even though the way we travel is sometimes conflicting, I can sense her love when I notice that she hears my passing comments/wishes, and she tries to fulfill them secretly for me. She also sometimes lets me visit somewhere that’s not on the itinerary, and it actually feels really maternal when she holds my hand when she thinks i’m sleeping (because i won’t let her hold my hand usually LOL).
5) Where is home for you?
Georgia. The good ‘ol south, land flowing with sweet tea and butter.
6) How do you wake up in the morning?
Depends. But waking up is a miracle everyday because of how painful it is for me -_- lol. but i usually wake up on my right side? And I always try to gently bring myself out of bed. The struggle is real. I hate it.
7) Where do you want to visit?
Paris and Southern France, Deep country of Tuscany, Japan, & India.
8) When was the last time you had no idea what you were doing?
I honestly can’t think of a time… OH YES. My little sister was asking me for something that’s a designer brand— the product wasn’t itself that expensive, but it certainly was way too much for a girl her age. And for the first time, I really felt like a conflicted parent that wants to give gifts to his/her child, but doesn’t want the gift to do more harm than good… but amidst this inner-battle of whether i should buy this thing for her, I eventually just bought it because gift-giving is my #1 love language to give to others… and I really had no idea what i was doing and made the impulsive purchase online.. of course, couple days later i realized i wasn’t being a good older sister/example, so I discussed it with her and then returned it.
9) Who do you see when you look in the mirror?
In the mornings, I only see blemishes. Afternoons, I sometimes like who i see, other times i don’t. Evenings, I see someone who made it through another day.
10) Why do you live where you do?
Cause that’s where my parents are and most of my childhood friends.
11) What is your biggest pet peeve?
Fasten your seat belt… hahaha jk
omg biggest?! I feel like they’re all the top lol.. ok, the biggest pet peeve i have— that I don’t think many people know— is small talk. I find it trivial and pretentious (unless the person is genuinely wanting to get to know you). It’s more the conversations (usually with an acquaintance or stranger) where the person keeps asking “fluffy” questions because they clearly feel uncomfortable with silence or feel obliged to make conversation.
5hawn! Do the Q&A lol
