award: Life is Good

1. Thank and link back to the person that gave this award.
Thanks to Missy's Reads & Reviews for this award!

2. Answer the 10 survey questions.

o1. If you blog anonymously are you happy doing it that way; if you are not anonymous do you wish you had started out anonymously so you could be anonymous now?
I'm not sure if I count as anonymous. I do use Angel as my "official" English name, and ninefly is my main screenname. I do keep anonymous on my other journals (ex. my translation journal) where I don't feel very social.

o2. Describe one incident that shows your inner stubborn side:
whenever I'm searching for obscure files on the internet and REFUSE to use bittorrent files -- purely because I dislike them with a passion for no reason whatsoever.

o3. What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?
I usually don't look at the mirror a lot (outside morning and night bathroom rituals), and I really hate having my photo taken, so sometimes my face looks a little foreign to me.

o4. What is your favourite summer cold drink?
iced orange juice. with the orange bits in them. yum~

o5. When you take time for yourself, what do you do?
sleep. marathon tv shows.

o6. Is there something you still want to accomplish in your life? What is it?
get paid for doing something I enjoy (aka an Ideal Job).

o7. When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever, the shy person, or always ditching?
the creepy silent class overachiever. apparently lots of people knew me because I got high grades.

o8. If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment of your life what would you see?

o9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people or events?
actually, I used to blog a lot about myself when I was a moody teenager, but I no longer possess the urge to spill my emo guts to the interweb. I personally see my opinions as part of my "true self", so I share whatever I need to say in my reviews.

1o. If you had the choice to sit down and read or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?
I prefer amusing myself most of the time, so I guess reading. I spend most of my online time reading something or other (books, articles, dictionaries). phones are still essential since most of my family and friends live long distance. I prefer texting over calling most of the time though.
