Liebster Award!

I was nominated by Cielo of Building the Confidence for the Liebster Award!
Fancy tag! The rules are pretty simple; you answer the questions of the blogger who nominated you, you leave another set of questions for your nominees and tag them! Shout out to Cielo! Thank you for nominating me although we've only been following each other for a couple of weeks!

RULES
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you
2. Answer the set of questions they set for you (11 questions)
3. Nominate 11 bloggers and let them know

Cielo's questions for me:
1. If you could replace any character in a book and live out their life, who would it be?
Hermione or Bellatrix. I'm good as long as I get to practice magic.

2. Favorite Lipstick?
I don't have a favorite lipstick, but I often use NYX Matte in Natural.

3. Best show to binge on?
Friends, Grey's Anatomy and Nikita.

4. Your proudest moment?
Talking in a large crowd, unsure if anyone was even paying attention to what I was saying, I saw one of the top students in our class who was nodding and listening attentively to what I was saying. It made me feel pleased because I exerted an effort for that talk and to know that someone appreciates that, even if it's only one person, means a lot to me.

5. What do you think success is?
Sharing your blessings to the people you care about

6. Why do you blog?
I blog to document my lyf. Also to have something to laugh about in the future! 

7. Do you or have you ever done YouTube videos?
Yes, back in 2008! I deleted it because they didn't have the option to make it private. The video itself is now gone with my old laptop.

8. Best concert you have ever been to?
The only concert I've ever been to, Maroon 5 Overexposed in Manila!

9. Who is your biggest inspiration?
Troian Bellisario and Anna Akana. They're awesome. I love them.

Anna Akana. I want to play with her cats too.

Dog meat, cat meat. Ugh

It has only been a month since my come-back in the blogging scene and these are the people that I've been secretly stalking (just kidding) or have encountered with!

Divergent

Divergent is currently rolling its credits as I am typing this! The movie was good but not that great. I used to watch Shailene Woodley in The Secret Life of an American Teenager and her acting was kind of bad that I stopped watching it. It's great to know that she has improved her acting! Lol. Listen to me and my criticism!

I wish I could have seen more of Maggie Q! Though I didn't read the book so I have no idea if her character exposure was really just that. I have no intentions of reading the book because Divergent simply did not top The Hunger Games for me. I think I'm also done with dystopian novels for now. If you have read the novel, how did you find it? Should I read it?

Movie Rating: 7 of 10

Anyway, Divergent and Transcendence are now available in digital HD! Grab a copy now? Haha

Weekend in Pittsburgh

I was at Pittsburgh this weekend for my IELTS exam. The road trip lasted for 4 hours and I intend to make a video of that trip when I figure out how to edit all of it on iMovie, but I think the pictures will do for now. Downtown Pittsburgh was Instagram/VSCO worthy as you may see! Although, any place is Instagram/VSCO worthy if you only look close enough! 

The first 4 pictures were taken inside Point Park University where the exam was held. Unfortunately, I had to wait two more hours after the initial exam because out of 8 people, I was the last to be interviewed! Fortunately, the uni was pretty homey! The first picture just screams the famous The Great Hall! What's not to like?

A chill, overcast day at Pittsburgh featuring a few of its buildings!

This beauty right here is made by Shepard Fairey a famous street artist from LA! He is known for Obama's presidential "Hope" campaign poster. I expect to see more of his work when I get to visit LA in the future!
