Sunday Stealing, “Not All Who Wander Are Lost”

In past few weeks I have neglected this blog terribly. School started two weeks ago with all of its usual stress and panic, and for a while I wasn’t sure I’d be able to keep this blog at all. I’m still not sure how well I’ll be able to update, but I plan to try. I have a backlog of reviews to write, but for today I was inspired to update thanks to a meme I saw on a journal I follow. The meme is from a blog called Sunday Stealing, and doesn’t deal with books or reading but struck me as something I could do to try and get back in the habit of updating this thing.

  1. Put your music player of choice on shuffle and list the first song. TWO, by Chemistry.
  2. If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? Would you take anyone with you? Thailand, specifically the town I taught in for a year, Phanom Sarakham. I miss Thailand- my friends, my students, the lifestyle- every single day. I plan to go visit for two weeks or so next January but it feels like forever from now.
  3. What is your preferred writing implement? (eg. Blue pen, pencil, green pen) Some form of black pen. I use whatever pens happen to be lying around me. For school I’m using a pen I took from a Marriott Residence in while at home I’m using one from a Hollywood Suites by Hilton.
  4. When did you go on your first trip alone (without your parents)? I’ve been on several small trips with my boyfriend, but the only time I truly traveled completely alone was to Thailand. Go big or go home, right?
  5. Do you have connections to any celebrities (even minor)? List them. My mom’s cousin was once a pro wrestler, and I taught a girl whose older brother was a model?
  6. Name 3 items you could pick up from where you are. An empty cereal bowl, a purple pen, PS3 controller.
  7. How would you describe your sense of humor? Goofy but often sarcastic, especially when annoyed.
  8. Do you ever play board games or other non-computer games? Got any favorites? I love card games, Apples to Apples, Cards Against Humanity, ImaginIf and Life.
  9. A musical artist you love that isn’t well known. To most of the Western world, all of them. I primarily listen to Asian pop.
  10. A musical artist you love that is well known. I like a lot of R&B artists: NeYo, Bruno Mars, Jay Sean, ect.
  11. What is your desktop background currently? VIXX, my favorite Korean boy band.
  12. Last person you talked to, and through what you talked to them. My mom, in person. Last night I spoke to my boyfriend over the phone.
  13. What do you carry your money in? A cheap Avengers wallet I bought at Ross.
  14. What timekeeping devices are in the room you are currently in? Just the digital clock on my desktop.
  15. What kind of headphones do you use? A pair of black over the ear headphones, I’ve forgotten the brand name. I also have a pair of Sony earbuds in case over the ear headphones are ever too inconvenient, but they hurt my ears.
  16. What musical artists have you seen perform live? Korean: Wonder Girls, 2PM, VIXX, MBLAQ. Taiwanese: Show Luo, Rainie Yang. I’ve seen way too many Thai artists to list.
  17. How often do you clear your browser history? At home, once every few months. At work I clear it at the end of the week.
  18. What’s the best job you’ve ever had? Teaching English in Thailand. I’ve never enjoyed working so much or felt so fulfilled and positive at the end of a work day.
  19. What’s the worst job you’ve ever had? My current job, which I’ve had off and on since I graduated from high school. I work in human resources as some form of assistant just so I can pay for school.
  20. What magazines do you read, if any? I subscribe to Bookmarks and World Lit Today and highly recommend both of them. I find so many new books to read through them.
