Nominated for an Award?!

Well, imagine my surprise when I get a comment from the lovely Lally that says she is nominating me for the Liebster award. The award is, basically, an award to get to know some lesser-known blogs online and just connect us bloggers in a nice little way. Thanks for my first (of I’m sure many, just kidding) award Lally!! Alice nominated her and she is actually one of my friends out here in Busan! I can’t wait for Alice to come back and I’d love to meet you Lally, thanks for the nomination! liebsteraward

11 Facts about Me:

  1. I have wanted to do ESL teaching since I was 12-years-old. My degree is actually in Linguistics for Teaching English as a Second Language.
  2. I have a mild addiction to Bubble tea and need to have it at least once a week to function.
  3. I live in constant fear of my phone/computer crashing and me losing all my files but I have done little to save them…
  4. I love planning things but I would rather plan for myself than other people.
  5. My expectations from other people are rather low but that’s because I’ve had high expectations before and after being let down so much I decided to be a bit more chilled out.
  6. I am a generally happy person but I do hold grudges like cute puppies so if you wrong me, I will probably always remember.
  7. I love PUNS! So much. I have a reputation for telling bad/good jokes.
  8. I like taking selfies and I have often thought about getting a selfie stick.
  9. I have been to more countries than anyone else in my immediate family.
  10. I’m the first one in my family to graduate/attend University. (My sister graduated college first though).
  11. I currently live in Korea because I attended summer school in Seoul and fell in love with the country. Though I do love it here I will be returning home after my contract is up, I don’t know when I’ll be back but I’m making the most of my time here.

Lally’s Questions:

  1. What is your guilty pleasure?
    – My guilty pleasure is watching super cheesy TV  shows. One that a lot of people don’t like, though I really feel no guilt about it 😉
  2. Name 5 things that make you happy.
    – Writing, Friends, Music, My family, and of course my Boyfriend.
  3. What skills do you wish you had?
    – I wish I could pick up languages as quickly as I did when I was younger. Though my Korean is coming along, I wish it was better. Also better money-saving tips (though I am pretty good at saving I can be swayed with the right sale…)
  4. What is your favourite twitter account to follow?
    @stats_canada – Amazing.
  5. Do you have any OCDs or superstitions?
    – Not going to pretend I have a mental illness, but I do like my things in a certain way/place and when they’re changed I can get pretty miffed.
  6. What are you reading at the moment?
    – Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn, though I often forget to bring my e-reader with me.. Ah.
  7. If you had to live with only one of the five senses, which would it be and why?
    -Oh god… uhhh Sight. I like being able to see things and if I didn’t have taste I could try many things that look scary and freak people out.
  8. What do you find scarier, the idea there is other life out there in the universe, or there isn’t and we’re completely alone?
    – I think the idea that there isn’t life out there and we’re completely alone is scarier because… who wants to be alone?
  9. What’s the meaning behind your blog title?
    – Girl (me) in the Dynamic (ever-changing, growing, also the English slogan for Busan) City (Busan) woo.
  10. What is your favourite season/weather?
    – I love Fall but I have been loving the pretty sunny days we’ve been having. If I had to be super specific, I’d be a super sunny Beginning of April day when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom.
  11. Tattoos. Why/Why not and what are they/would they be?
    – I have one tattoo on my inner right wrist that I got when I was 18 and I have often thought about getting another. I may end up taking one home with me when I leave Korea…
