    Yeah I know the rules were odd. I got nominated with that version. I was confused too and just went with it! ^^;; And thanks for nominating me. XD

      The Global Aussie is the blog that originated the Liebster Award, which was why I was conflicted if I should use the original rules rather than the one who made up that whole “11 facts” and “11 questions,” etc.

      I still have yet to answer another Liebster Award set of questions, but I’ve been busy once again with work and projects.

        I was just as conflicted! Glad I wasn’t alone there!

    Firstly, thank you for taking the time to read both the blog posts on positive habits and my story of my breakup. Thank you 😊

    I really enjoyed reading your answers for the Liebster award, thanks for sharing! I might do it myself but I have done it in the past before (with different questions) – don’t know yet!! But thanks for nominating me 💖

    I can’t believe you’ve been blogging for 18 years!! That’s awesome! I’m hitting 9 years soon, I believe.

    My boyfriend is a fan of that remote life. I’m not sure if I am tbh, I actually like offices and a place to go!

      You’re always welcome Pauline! A lot of your posts really get me to think about myself, and it really helps. It’s one of those times where my conscience would say things like “Why didn’t I think of that?” or “What the heck was I doing back then and why am I not doing anything about it today?” and things like that. :) Still, thank you for sharing some of your experiences. They really help make many of us readers reflect on ourselves and all the things we’ve been through. Thank you! ☺

      The good thing about the Liebster Award is that this is more of a “chain letter” blogging than those in which you actually get an award and have to do the requirements to win it haha! But, once again, I dwindled from blogging, and I’ve forgotten about answering others’ Liebster Award questions. Maybe the next time when blogging inspiration returns to me again. Maybe tomorrow haha!

      My first few years of blogging wasn’t much of a blog. It was just me talking about my favorite fandoms (mostly video games, anime, and manga), noobish stuff about web design, and some petty drama. But you know, I was young then. Then I dwindled, went back to blogging, dwindled again and went back to blogging. It was an endless cycle, but nevertheless, I blogged for almost 20 years as of today.

      I actually have relevant reasons why I really want to have a remote job. More of family-related stuff. Both my parents are cancer survivors but still go through a lot of certain procedures to maintain their health. I feel that by having a remote job, I can do a lot for them, for the house, for the family, and of course, I’d have more time to myself doing all my other favorite things that doesn’t involve coding and development. I guess you could say that “I want to live free and have an actual life.” Plus, I would like to travel more. Your travel blogs and vlogs make me jealous LOL.

      I guess I can also say that I’ve gone through plenty of offices in my employment life. Funny you mention about having to go to an office to work because a lot of my dream tech companies to work for are all located in my area. For example, Automattic (the peeps behind WordPress, etc.) and Github headquarter offices are located in San Francisco. It’s about a 45-minute train ride for me (it’s shorter by car but the traffic is horrible over there), but their staffing is completely remote. If I had a job in any one of the two companies mentioned, I can work at home and work at their offices too whenever I wanted.

      If I were to go to an office instead of a remote job, Atlassian (the people behind Bitbucket (equivalent to GitHub) and SourceTree git desktop app) has two locations in my area: San Francisco and Mountain View. The one in Mountain View is closer to me and I can just drive there, but again, traffic sucks. The closest known tech headquarters by distance to my hometown is Facebook, just a short bridge drive away (about 15 mins quick drive).

      Plus, I’d like to go to conferences and hackatons too! I still would like to open a chapter of Girls Who Code in my local area so we can teach our (elementary, middle school, high school) girls how to code, but I’m still looking around for sources and references on where I’m going to hold it. If I had a remote job, I’d have more time to work on this chapter too. ☺
