New Year’s Resolutions


I think I’ve mentioned it here in the blog that I don’t really believe in New Year’s Resolutions, but when it comes in the form of an online quiz, I couldn’t resist it.XD

You Should Make 4 Resolutions

Get Fit
Reduce Stress OverallVolunteer to Help Others

Spend More Time With Family and Friends

What Should You Resolve to Change Next Year?

Work is Hard. Time for Blogthings!

Yep, pretty true.

Mid-Holiday Pain


No, not the emo kind.:P It’s just my last remaining wisdom tooth has swollen up, which means I have to say bye-bye to it already.x_x The pain’s not that bad yet, but I’m definitely looking forward to my trip to the dentist over the weekend to get it out. It’s hard to eat with a sore tooth, not to mention my throat’s pretty painful since I’m coming from a cold.

No pain will burst my holiday cheer bubble though.XD Hope you guys are having a great one!^_^



You Are a Crossword Puzzle

You are well read, and you have a good head for remembering facts.

You are a wordsmith. You have a way with words, and you’re very literate.

You are a mysterious person who enjoys dropping little clues every now and then.

What Kind of Puzzle Are You?

Blogthings: We’re Not Shrinks, But We Play Them On the Internet

… I guess?:P At least it’s not sudoku, I’m definitely not good with numbers, so if I got that, then I know the quiz is lying to me.XD

My PB&J…

Your PB and J Says You’re Demure and Dainty
Your eating style is reserved. You are a bit of a fussy eater, and you have very specific ways you like your food prepared.

You have an average sweet tooth. While you enjoy desserts, they aren’t exactly your downfall.

Your taste in food tends to be pretty flexible. You may crave sushi one night, and your favorite childhood recipe the next.

You belong to a class that’s all your own. You resist rules and traditions of any sort.

You are a tough person who isn’t afraid to live life fully. There isn’t a lot that scares you.

You are laid back and extremely easygoing. You never make a fuss, and you try to enjoy every moment.

Doesn’t really say what kind of person I am.XD I’m not really demure and dainty, I’m not really fussy, and I’m not as laidback as I want to be. I also have a huge sweet tooth, so yeah. I do crave different types of food a lot of times though, and I dislike rules that have no purpose at all.

Merry Christmas!^_^


Merry Christmas, everyone!^_^ Just a quiz I thought would be apt for today:

You Would Be a Conventional Santa

Truth be told, you’re pretty happy with Santa and Christmas as they are. Why mess with a good thing?
Traditions are traditions for a reason. And you’re happy to participate in all of them. You even believe in Santa a little.
You think that old fashioned holidays with old time values are nice. It’s all about family and togetherness.
You think that too much commercialism and greed are naughty. It breaks your heart when the holidays bring out the worst in people.

The Santa Hat Quiz

Blogthings: Our Quizzes Weren’t Written By Bored 12 Year Olds

Yep, definitely agree with this one. Much as I would go for adding a little goofiness in Christmas, I do think that the holidays are getting more commercialized each year. It’s like, people are more focused on the surface stuff than those that are really important, and that’s sad. Anyway, sending you guys a lot of love this Christmas.^_^ Hope you have a lot of fun!



You Are Rudolph

Sweet and shy, you tend to be happiest when you’re making someone else happy.
Why You’re Naughty: You sometimes stick that nose where it doesn’t belong

Why You’re Nice: Christmas would be a sad affair without you!

Which of Santa’s Reindeer Are You?

Work is Hard. Time for Blogthings!

Aw, darn. And I wanted to see what the other reindeer results would be.XD

Oh, and one more thing before I go: one day to go before Christmas!^_^

Quirky Christmas


You Are Quirkily Offbeat
During the holidays, you do things your own way. You have eccentric decorations and traditions.
You like to keep things a little kooky and crazy. You hate it when the holidays are too upscale or stuffy.

You believe that the holidays are for everyone, and you like to make your own celebration funky and eclectic.
You mix and match what you like best. No one is going to tell you how to celebrate this year!

Yes, definitely!XD Not the way I actually celebrate though (since I always spend it with my family, and they’re traditional), but as a person, I really am more than a little kooky (if you haven’t noticed already).XD I like doing strange things just to shake things up at times, like in yesterday, when I dressed up as an elf in a Christmas party - and costumes weren’t even required.XD I haven’t (and I’ll never) reach Lady GaGa status though.XD

Board Games


I remember me or my siblings getting board games when we were younger, so I couldn’t resist taking this quiz.XD

You Are Boggle
You are an incredibly creative and resourceful person.
You’re able to dig deep and think outside the box to get things done.
You are a non linear thinker. You don’t like following directions
You draw your inspiration from the strangest places sometimes. You’re constantly inspired.

Kinda apt. I wish I was constantly inspired though, that way, I could always write stories when I wanted to.XD

You Are An Elf
You are highly creative and artistic. You are good at working hard.
While you love to work, you also love to play. You have a naughty side to you!

You love pulling pranks and teasing people. You always seem to be getting into some sort of trouble.
People can rely on you to be industrious and responsible… but you’re going to have fun while you’re getting stuff done.

Couldn’t help but laugh at my results. Yeah, at least a few of my friends would definitely agree to what the quiz said.XD I do get mischievous at times, but I don’t think it’s enough for me to be on the naughty list.XD
