Love / Hate Tag

Friday, July 24, 2015

I was tagged by the cutie, Linnie to do this love/hate tag. She has a lovely blog about beauty, fashion, and lifestyle. Please check it out ^^

// By the way, thank you so much for the birthday wishes and sweet comments on my previous post. You guys really touched my heart :') *SENDS HUGS TO EVERYONE* //

THE RULES
Rules are simple! List 10 things you love and 10 things you hate, then nominate 10 other bloggers to do it too :)

Like my "long distance relationship experience" post, I'm going to start with the negative-y things and end with lovey dovey things~ Save the good things for last right? ^^

10 THINGS I HATE/DISLIKE
Hate is such a strong word o.o I prefer using 'dislike' ahah

✖ Sounds of metal clanking - I shudder every time I hear it, especially spoons and forks clanking with one another or on the sink. It's such an unpleasant noise > <

✖ Messy room - Having a messy room or work area makes my mind feel cluttered and disorganized. I can't really think straight. I like to keep everything neat and tidy. Yup I'm a neat freak XD

✖ Rude people - Why can't everyone be kind and respect each other?

✖ People who chew with their mouth open - Every time I hear or see people do this, I immediately lose my appetite. I move away from them if possible. Like please, where are your manners?

✖ Holes (trypophobia) - Please don't google it. I know it sounds weird but it's a real fear of uneven holes. Whenever I see anything with many holes, I have this irrational, intense fear and shiver all over. It's one of the most common phobias, but not many people know about it.

✖ Sweating very easily - Thanks to genetics, I sweat like a pig if I go to a hot and humid place or get physically active for a few minutes. I swear I LOOK LIKE I WALKED THROUGH 5 RAINSTORMS AFTER A WORKOUT. Dripping sweat everywhere ew.. It really sucks but sadly I can't do anything about it other than bringing a towel to the gym and an umbrella outside when it's sunny.

✖ Being forced to do something I don't like - Pretty much self explanatory. This mainly includes things my parents tell me to do and uni coursework.

Talking in front of many people - I'm hella shy and introverted so public speaking makes me super nervous. Even just talking to a group of friends makes me feel uncomfortable.

Bloggers who write generalized comments on other blogs - You know those "great post!" "love your blog!" "check out my blog and follow?" comments? Yep, they piss me off so much. Many bloggers spend so much time and effort creating a blog post, at least read some bits and comment something related/specific to their post or nothing at all. Goddamnit. #endspamming2015

✖ Having mood swings - I'm trying my best to control it but my fluctuating female hormones aren't helping much. I can go from being super happy to hella angry to very depressed for no reason in one day. I don't like that it affects the way I treat the people I love. I'm trying to be as positive as I can lately.

10 THINGS I LOVE

♥ My boyfriend - I love him more than anything in the world. He's everything I've ever wanted in a boyfriend. Kind, caring, loyal, family-oriented, patient and funny with a bonus of cute and handsome. He's one of a kind. Talking to him on skype/facetime makes me so happy ahh (we're currently in a LDR). I can go on and on about him, I'll have to dedicate another blog post for him haha. So blessed to have him in my life <3

♥ My family - Even though we have our ups and downs, they've always been there for me. I can't thank them enough for all the love and support they give me. I love them dearly and I'm forever grateful to have such a warm, loving family.

FOOD! - I think you should know by now I'm a big foodie from all those food photos on my blog and instagram (arrada.jpg) hahaha! Honestly, I get excited whenever I'm about to eat something yummy XD

♥ Music - Listening to good music makes me feel so relaxed, especially after a long day. It's my therapy. My favourite music genres are R&B, rock, pop, alternative, ballads in a variety of languages - Korean, Japanese, Thai, Pinoy, Chinese, Nepalese.

Sleep - I love sleeping, that's all there is to say. My boyfriend calls me a sloth ahaha.

♥ Reading good books - Books are my escape. The stories each book tells. The details of each character. The vivid descriptions of their struggles and life. The sound of turning each page. All of this allows me to get lost in the book and stop me from thinking of things going on in my life. To escape from real life and step into a fictional character’s mind; it’s a beautiful feeling.

♥ Getting good grades - I love it when my hard work (studying) pays off haha. Good grades also makes my parents happy, which makes me happy :3

♥ When someone plays with my hair - I don't know man, I find it so soothing when someone plays with my hair. It feels so nice and relaxing. Although it's better when I have long hair.. Dear hair, please grow faster huhu..

♥ Puppies! - Ahh puppies and dogs are the cutest pets in the world to me. I love the small ones like West Highland White Terrier and pugs. They're so loyal, friendly, and they're always excited to see you. I wish I could have one but my parents don't allow T__T

♥ Random acts of kindness - Whether it's me doing those acts myself or seeing someone else do it, I love it so much. It's a selfless act by people who wishes to to cheer up or assist others. It totally makes someone's day, I'm telling you. I think random acts of kindness make the world a better place :')

I've read soo many books and this trilogy gave me so many feels and it's so well written ;u;

  2. omgomgomgomg trypophobia, I have it too ! I've always known about it even before people started posting about it on social medias. I remember telling my friends to google it and I thought they would be just as disgusted as me but all of them looked at me like "what's wrong with this?!"... I'm definitely on the same boat as you girl !!!
    Anyways, thanks for nominating me (: I'm glad I got to know more about you *internet hug* ^__^

  6. That's a very nice post, it's good to get to know you a little bit better :) And I can see we have a lot in common haha! I think the random acts of kindness is one of my favourites, and I am happy you mentioned it, because it is so rare... but it feels so good when people simply smile back :) What makes me happy is that children always smile back, so I can't help smiling to random children hahaha xD
    And thank you for tagging me! I will work on that! :D

  7. I didn't know I'm tagged not until I visited your blog! I'm excited to this this. Thank you so much!
    We have common dislikes: People who chew with their mouth open, Sweating very easily, Bloggers who write generalized comments on other blogs. Sweating like a pig is such a struggle! Every morning in school we have flag ceremony and its so damn hot outside (and were not allowed to wipe off)! Also, whenever I see bloggers just leaving comments with their blogs link, its kinda offending. Like, hello?! say something sensible and not just leave your mark.
    I'm excited!!!! Thank you!!! :))

  8. I've never heard of trypophobia before and you're the very first person I know who has it! (i didn't google it, pinky swear teehee) I totlly agree with you on people leaving generalized comments! It's like they're not appreciating our posts and just copy paste check out my blog bla bla bla. It's kind of annoying :/ And we quite have the same things in common om the Love Tag part. Especially reading books and random act of kindness :) I think you're really a kind person Nicole. Keep the pure heart <3 Hope we can be friends!

    Basically all the things you hate, and love, THEY'RE MINE TOO. (Except your boyfriend - I got my own, ofc) hehuehu.
    I work in retail, so... rude people. Every day.
    At this point I don't take that BS and just give them a death glare. Especially people who think the world revolves around them, and belittles me or my coworkers. Will not take!
    And yeah, the metal sounds... me too. I hate the sound of keys jingling. NOT my thing! D:

  13. Wow I never knew some things about you and omg I thought I was the only one who sweats like crazy! I mean I was so embarrass to even hold hands with someone. Hows your experience with that? That's why I try to avoid letting my crush touch my hands. And yess I like how someone plays with my hair. It's just weird, but I like how they do it because it's a different feeling when your hair is getting braided by someone else ^__^

    1. Hehe glad we have some things in common! Hmm I don't sweat too much from my hands but I tend to sweat more on my armpits LOL which is more embrassing because people can see the wet stains on my shirt T___T Do you sweat on your hands because you're nervous around your crush tho? Wink wink c; Ahh I wish my hair could grow faster so someone could braid my hair too.. Your hair is gorgeous!

  14. I really hate talking in front of many people too! I could die lol, well to be honest I seriously just feel like puking everytime. Especially those surprise sharings like it's a big no no to me. And yes to puppies! I had one Japanese Spitz before, but she died. It was really depressing. We're planning on getting a new one actually :) Yes to food! By the way, thanks for tagging me Nic :)

  15. Interesting answers! I also hate people who can't seem to comment properly. :( It actually makes me sad :(
    And yay for surviving LDR! I'm still amazed on how people seem to make it work, especially because it requires a lot of patience, trust, and love. :)

  17. The thing I hate the most is definitely sweating even if it's freezing cold! I always wonder how my body could function like this. Also, whenever I workout, I don't sweat so much at all even if I spent two hours on the treadmill. Weird, right?

    As for love, well, I like a good book always! I bring one with me in PDF form because I don't want to get my book chuck up with all the dust that comes when commuting. I have a handful to catch up on as I've been busy. Also, I just figured out my love for puppies!!! I'm really scared of dogs before but my boyfriend owns around six pugs right now and I came to appreciate them a lot. He's even planning to give one to me on our anniversary, so I am totally up to the challenge of taking care of one for the first time! :)

    Thank you, lovely, for nominating me on this series! <3

    1. Heyy. I'm more surprised at the fact that you spend 2 hours on the treadmill than the fact that you don't sweat o.o I hope you mean that you don't sweat when you spend a lot of time (like 30-40 mins) on the treadmill 'cause 2 hours is crazy girl!

      Omigosh six pugs?! My boyfriend and I would love to have some too hahaha XD

      Np~ can't wait to read your post ^^

  18. This is such an interesting post, Nicole! I also hate rude people and being forced to do something I don't like and I don't like talking in front of people too but that's one of the things that I'd really like to learn. It's cute that you like it when someone plays with your hair. My sister hates it when someone tries it on hers cos she said it tickles her. Haha.

  19. Hey Nicole, thanks so much for nominating me! I'm sorry I just got to this, I've been super busy these past few days (my most recent post was queued) so I've just managed to find some extra time to go blog reading.

    Haha two things definitely stood out to me the most: I HATE the sound of metal clanking as well. I get shivers all throughout my body! And, I LOVE sleeping too (sloths unite). I'm in the same situation about puppies... I love them dearly but my parents refuse to get one... once I'm living on my own, I am most definitely getting a puppy!

    I'll try my best to do this tag! I've got a lot of things coming up so I queued a lot of posts, but hopefully I can squeeze this in ~ Hope you have a fantastic day!
