original idea for this page comes from my fellow blogger Julia Alvarez's grabbag. And I've also been writing down my favourite things as a hobby, which started when I got my first Total Girl slambook back in 2010, and a habit of mine was to sign on my own slambooks several times, hence the page title.
These are a few of my favourite things. *cue music* xD Plus people!! People are amazing too :)
Welllll, these things and people also make up who I am; they're not merely ones which/whom I direct my affinity to - because of my love and admiration for them, I have wrapped pieces of them into my being. To list them down is to add more landmarks to the Map of Myself, making it all clearer to know where I've been, where I am, and where I'm going. Here it goes…

Well, that's about it for now. And I'd also like to part with a paragraph from Julia's page, "it's beneficial to me and I hope it'll be to you, as well. I really, strongly suggest, my fellow nuggets, [to try] it too. Just jot down significant stuffies and whatnot, things that represent Reality material and all ++ things that you can explore and would most likely, explore even more." :D
