Ten Things I *HEART*

So I was tagged in the *Ten things I love* thingy that is going on by Suru and Blowing Blessings Your Way, and I guess am going to continue it and pass it along as well :)

See this is a kind of hard one because there are a lot a of things I love... so am going to start, take the top 3 as priorities and the middle ones in no particular order...
1. God - I am still trying to adjust my image of him from this conventional bearded Man that sits in white robes to one, hopefully, that truly defines him... not in a physical sense, more in an intangible way.
2. Family - I love them to death... I used to fight with my siblings like crazy, infact, it seemed like we were the only siblings that fought... and my parents, ahh! my super heros!!!
3. him - ... *enough said*...
4. Research - Sorry if this sounds dorky, but i think pipettes are *awesome*... I love trying to find out if my PCR worked or not... or if my transfections worked or not... nerve wreaking, but *surreal*.
5. Books - Unfortunately, I don't read as much as I used to... too many textbooks to read already
6. Motivational/Inspirational Bibs - I love reading/hearing or knowing pick-me-ups/pick-me-up people. It never fails to put a smile on my face and re-ignite that fire within.
7. Sugar - I have a shamless unrecovering sweet tooth... you name it: Tiramisu, Ice-cream, chocolate... I do them all :)
8. Writing - ahh how could I forget that... but what is this thing I do without my pen  laptop/word processor?
9. Relationships - In general with people. I am a recovering Introvert, so I still don't pick up my phone and call people to know how they are doing... I used to think relationships didn't matter, and that it would all come with with success. However, a quote I heard of C.S. Lewis pretty much sums up my new notion: "You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations — these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub, and exploit — immortal horrors or everlasting splendours." This quote is from his book Weight of Glory. Definitely need to read it, that quote made me realize the real reason we were created is still ever prevalent - created for fellowship, a relationship with foremost our Creator and with one another. 
10. Stuffed Animals - Yes I am old, and my room is still filled with teddys... :) It cracks my parents up every single time.

This is what I think sums up a bit of me... if you are tagged, carry it on will ya? I now pass it on to JayceeImotedaJuiceegalNice AnonOriginal MgbekeBimpe and a host of others that would like to join the game. Have fun!!!


  1. That sweet tooth, I gat it too, lol. Relationships, wow that quote is sure powerful. I also had to work on my people skills, still doing that sef.

    Have a great weekend.

  2. I love everything you mentioned too well except stuffed animals I never could stand them as a child. I would also consider myself a recovering introvert haha

  3. @Myne: ahhh fellow sugar lover... *nodding head in approval* Have a good weekend too :)
    @Suru: Ha... ya I have friends who wonder what I am still doing with those too. lol

  4. You're officially a @ research

  5. I like the research one. Mine's has nothing to do with the chemistry and laboratory apparatus though.. Mine's more of knowing statistics; what people are saying about a phenomena of interest. Thats why I guess I cant be anything else other than a professor. LOL

    I searched for music and didnt find it. haha.
    Talk about not being able to read books again. I am no. 1. In fact, my library lay dormant. I only move on things I've read before I began my PhD. Too many articles to read. Anyway, make I stop here o.
    wait, *him* ahahaahaha - I object to the enough said o. lol


  6. @Jaycee, awww no, just when I thought I could get away without that designation... lol.

    @LDP:Yes... actually I do love music, it just completely and utterly skipped my mind, but be rest assured, am a huge fan. Uhm... yes, I wuld say enough has been said, i have probably even said too much, lol.

  7. I *Heart* the ten things you heart. Well I'm not particularly religious but meh. I loove stuffed animals too. I have all my "daughter's" stuffed animals on bed. My friend told me my room looks like a twelve yr olds but I loves it anyways.

    You like research? Maybe I should come and hang around you. It might make me a better person lol. I can't stand doing research on anything.

  8. @Imoteda: ahhh yes maybe... you'll prolly get the research bug too lol.
    @BBW: sweet tooths = best.

  9. 無一事而不學,無一時而不學,無一處而不學。 ..................................................

  10. @ 鈺禎: 是的,我们要学习好。谢谢,你总是说有见地的东西。

  11. Ah... coming from an addict coming off an ice cream binge, I can safely say I know nothing about this sugar obsession so many people speak of... ***suspicious side eye***

  12. @ F and M: Yeah I am positive you don't know about this sugar obsession... *straight face*
