Inspiring Blogger Award

Oh look! A present!

I am very happy and grateful for this nomination, since I don’t know how I inspire others, but I’ll graciously accept this nomination (and accept the award) from Ritu over at But I Smile Anyway! She is definitely a special one and always looking on the bright side! Thank you so much! I am so glad that Ritu would think of me as 1/5 she nominated on her tight schedule!

Follow the rules:

Thank the person who nominated you: Check.

Nominate 10 bloggers who inspire you:

I always like to re-nominate the person who nominated me.  It makes sense.  They were worthy of receiving such awards in the first place, so a second round would not hurt.

Answer the following questions:

In your personal life, which person inspires you the most?

I cannot choose one and I cannot choose just people.  My family, a certain professor, lots of books, favorite artists, and of course, optimism.  What can I say? I’m grateful.

Who is your role model?

Again, I cannot choose one person.  My family.

Which sound do you hear at the current moment?


Do you make efforts to make others feel mentally and emotionally stronger?

Yes.  I believe we need more good in the world.  There is so much violence fueled by whatever their cases are, that more good needs to be put in to at least balance it out.  Do your part to make it peaceful, if not for you, then for the future generations.

Which is the best quote for you?

At fifteen, I set my heart upon learning.  At thirty, I had planted my feet firm upon the ground.  At forty, I no longer suffered from perplexities.  At fifty, I knew what were the biddings of Heaven.  At sixty, I heard them with a docile ear.  At seventy, I could follow the dictates of my heart, for what I desired no longer overstepped the boundaries of right.

I began writing Elle's Adventure in China (EACh) in June 2014 as a fun summer project, but as obstacles kept interfering with my plans, I forked and forked more options. I took writing this novel much more seriously in mid-July, and want to have it officially published someday in my lifetime. As many artists put their hearts into their projects, so do I. I did not start out liking to read, but a professor suggested a book for me for homework a few years ago, and it was an amazing book. Since then, I read for pleasure, and I hope my novel, Elle's Adventure in China, does the same for as many of you as possible. The same thing goes to writing. I did not like to write until I took a course where the professor and papers made me love to write. I hope every one of you find what makes you happy and dedicated to work. In May 2015, I started my other blog, Read and Write Here (R&WH), as a place to post other things that aren't China- and Chinese culture-related and not EACh. I share some of my memories and experiences from student teaching, irregular participation in Daily Prompts, etc. I'd like to have regular people and bloggers to write book reviews and post it on R&WH someday. Keep reading and writing!
