The Sunshine Blogger Award

So, let’s give this a try! This will be the first time I did a blog “award” or tag. I’ve been tagged by the sweet sweet Dawn over at Peachy Pink Sisters. I wanted to share a little bit about the blogger behind Becoming Sleek.

11 Random Facts About Me
1. My work computer uses four monitors at the same time. I need all of those to keep track of a lot of things at the same time when I’m working.
2. I’m an avid dog person! I love everything dog, and I think all dogs are cute! (yes even the traditional ugly dogs are pretty cute!) I, however, got my first dog just last year.
3. I’m also a nail polish addict, as you may well know from this blog. However, I only started with nail polish around the time I started this blog, which was only a little over a year ago.
4. I’m a foodie (di halata lol). I love cooking and baking, and I also used to regularly make bento baons for me and my daughter. I actually have a food blog!
5. I’m a board gamer! And by that I mean the true board games such as Through the Ages, Dominion, Agricola, and Descent.
6. I’m a non-practicing scientist! I have a degree in Applied Physics. 😀
7. I’ve always been interested in calligraphy, typography, and handwriting, and I only recently started being serious about it. The main motivation is the fact that it was my weakest subject in elementary!
8. I am currently addicted to chocolate milk (as in Chocolait or Chuckie!). I drink one tetra pack a night at least!
9. I enjoy video games too. My most recent favorite is Fire Emblem on the 3DS!
10. When I quit the corporate world years from now (maybe retirement age?) I plan to go back to teaching. I loved being a teacher!
11. I watch all sorts of cartoons and anime. My all-time favorites are Miyazakis (Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Nausicaa), Dennou Coil, Read or Die.

  1. Sabi ko na nga ba physicist ka e! You might know one of my friends/ ex-workmate, I think you were schoolmates too

      1. He’s around our age, I think. Unless you started really early.

        Wow, the physicists I know are both non-practicing scientists, ha! Anyway, hope you got confirmation from NARS for tomorrow.

  2. Thanks for the tag! I’ve a ton of these I don’t even know which one to follow anymore, hahaha.

  3. BTW, Pat, I might not do the tag but I’m making several of these questions into their own separate posts 😉

    Thanks for the questions! I’m running out of things to write about.
