So, I've been pretty silent for a few days now. Forgive me. I've been terribly busy with the aftermath of my exams. On the upside, I got featured on the 9th episode of the #5x5podcast by Tania Arpa and Mina V. Esguerra last February 20, 2014! (Check video above to listen to how everything turned out!)
Personally, it was both nerve-racking and frustrating. Nerve-racking because it was my first time to have a podcast with other people (awesome people!). The first podcast I made was all by myself, so this one was entirely different. And it was also frustrating because the connection didn't cooperate and I kept being cut off. haha All in all though, it was fun!
I loved the geeky things that Tania and Mina talked about, plus, I got to share about blog tours for Filipino authors and my own experiences as a book blogger.
There were some things that I haven't really explained so I'm taking this opportunity to post a few clarifications here:
- Yes, I read 151 books in 2013. You can check my 2013 Goodreads Reading Challenge if you wish to verify all the books I've read last year.
- I read a lot, but that doesn't mean I'm anti-social, I'm a nun in the making, or I'm some sort of psycho (this one is debatable.. haha!). I have a small circle of close friends and we see each other occasionally. I also go out with my classmates in law school whenever we have time.
- Yes, I do have a library at home with two big-ass book cases. It doubles as my reading nook and study room. (And sports my little brother's anime masterpieces!)
- Yes, really! I do have Hermione's Time-Turner and Dr. Who's time-travelling blue police box (a.k.a. TARDIS) so I frequently travel in time and space (hence, I accomplish so many things without a sweat). Of course, I'm kidding! My principle is this: If you are passionate about something, you make time for it no matter how hectic things become. I'm passionate about reading, writing and books so even if I'm a law student and a student leader, I make time for what makes me happy.
