Another Tag

There is another tag for me and it is from a dear friend, Sui. She tagged me on 28th July but I was not able to answer that soon. I had told her that I won't let her down, so today I would like to fulfill my promise.

Sui is a creative writer and her posts at Imaginative Spiral are simply awesome! She has 11 questions for me, so let's look at them one by one. :)

Here we go :

1. Do you enjoy being tagged or is it annoying?
I enjoy it that's why I answer you! I don't find it annoying not unless the questions are irrelevant. I hope it doesn't annoy you when I can't follow all the golden rules of tagging. That's my weakness. However, I never forget to link back to the person who tagged me. Being tagged is fun and an honor indeed as long as the questions are not putting me in a sticky situation. 

2.  What does hardship mean to you?
Hardship is when all efforts to achieve dreams are futile no matter how hard we try. It's really difficult, too, when we intend to move forward, we are being constantly pushed backwards by certain quarters. Constraints in life could also cause hardship. Apart from that, the country's economic instability, diseases and war fall into the same category.

3. Is it reasonable to be judgmental?
It depends a lot in what situations and the rationales behind it. We can't be too judgmental when we, ourselves, are below par than the persons being judged! On the positive side, being judgmental would be reasonable when it is intended to bring good to the person concerned. The right approaches such as using diplomacy should be taken so as not to hurt his/her feeling. Make sure, we have the concrete reasons why being judgmental.

4. Would you be friends with a person who disagrees with your opinions and beliefs but doesn't mind hanging out with you?
Let's be open-minded on this. I would still be friends as long as I'm not facing the danger of getting stabs in the back! Personally, I think it's ok to disagree on certain issues because we all have the right to speak out our minds. Regarding beliefs, we should be tactful in bringing up questions so that the other person is not hurt. As we have the right to believe in what we think is best for us, due respect should be given to each other. When disagreeing on certain matters, one should not cross the line in order to avoid it from  becoming too sensitive.

After any argument, we should reconcile, so I would still hang out with that person.

5.  What are the actions that make you believe that you are treasured by a certain person?
The attention given to me by that certain person, the way he/she accepts my flaws and weaknesses, who easily forgives me for my silly mistakes and most importantly, accepting me as I am. 

6.  What do you prefer to do in your free time?
There are quite a few things I love to do such as reading, blogging, blog hop, day dreaming, listening to music and thinking of  the blue sky and everything nice!

7. What is it that cheers you after a day of hard work?
Being able to accomplish a challenging task, I would heave a sigh of relief and contentment.  It definitely cheers me.

8. When is your birthday?
Born under the zodiac Taurus, it's on 20th May. I'm a bull! You didn't know? Listen - Snort!Snort!

9. What do you think about the current state of the world?
It appalls me a lot. Many things happen which sadden me and I'm worried of our future generations. How will  it be for them in decades to come? I wish there is always peace in every nook of the world besides having the economic stability, healthy and pro-active world citizens, free from human trafficking etc to make this world a better place to live in.

10. You had been saving money to buy an item that you had been eying for days. How would you feel when you finally buy that item and found it to be defective item?
OMG! it's a hard-earned money, surely I would become poorer by a few hundred ringgit (for instance). But everything happens for a reason. May be I was dying for that item that had made me very careless, thus forgetting to scrutinize whether it's defective or not. Whatever it is, there's a lesson to learn. May God forgives the person who sells such thing.

11. As far as you have come to know me, what type of person do you perceive me to be?
Cheerful, brilliant, funny, friendly and a very good writer.

Well, my job's done! I hope Sui is satisfied with my answers. I would like to apologize to her for being unable to follow all the tagging rules. Do pay Sui a visit at Imaginative Spiral - a place to dabble with creative writing. It's worth it!
