An Interview With Niña

Here's Interview #2, featuring Niña Alvia from Infinite Existence. Enjoy! :)

Tell us about yourself.
Hello! My name is Niña Alvia. I'm fifteen years old. I'm a Filipino sophomore who enjoys watching football (the real European one), eating, reading and blogging :) 

What inspired you to start a blog?
I actually had a tumblr account since the summer of 2012 and I've been meaning to start 'legit' blogging but I never really knew how to start until I've read some more blogs such as Camille Co's Camille Tries To Blog, Patricia Prieto's Paradigma, Zoe Suen's Fashiononymous and Nina Pineda's Oh for Fox Sake. 

What is your favourite thing about blogging?
My favorite part of blogging is conceptualizing more posts for my blog. It's quite fun and I get to release this creative side of me I didn't know I had. Also, the fact that people read my blog kind of warms my heart and that all this blogging doesn't go to waste. 

Which would you prefer: taking photographs, drawing, writing, dancing, or singing?
Ooh, that's a tough one HAHAHA! But if I were to do it for the rest of my life it would probably be taking photographs because I get to hypothetically 'listen' to someone's tale and spread it to the world so easily... in just one click! Imagine that. I still get amazed by the continous growth of the technology of photography. It's quite awe-inspiring. 

What are three things that you did today?
Since tomorrow is my first day of school *sobs* I fixed my school things, I talked to my friend about the current Spurs vs. Heat game (I actually kept asking questions) and I ate two tortillas for breakfast. 

What items do you usually bring in your bag?
I actually don't bring a bag when I go places but when I do, all that's in there are my cellphones, earphones and my wallet. I find it tiresome to bring a bag everywhere. Hahaha.

What do you want to be when you get older?
I actually am not sure what I'm going to be yet. Although, being a news reporter looks quite appealing. And I've also wanted to be a doctor since my mother is one but I'm deadly afraid of blood (quite ironic considering I'm a girl and a daughter of a doctor, right?) 

Do you have any favourite quotes? If yes, what are they?
Most of them are from Harry Potter so here are the Harry Potter ones (because I'm a hardcore Potterhead):

"Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light." -Dumbledore

"If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals." -Sirius

"We've all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are." -Sirius

From the book 'Papertowns' by John Green:

“That's always seemed so ridiculous to me, that people want to be around someone because they're pretty. It's like picking your breakfeast cereals based on color instead of taste.” -Margo

I actually have a lot more but then I think if I placed it here it would be too much HAHAHA! 

If you could do absolutely anything, what would you do?
No, not blog, I'm sorry. But I think it would be to eat forever and anything without getting fat nor bankrupt. Seems like a fairytale in my eyes. 

If there is one thing you’d want people to remember most about you, what would it be?
I won't answer the cliché: "I want them to remember my good deeds." because far too many people have used that and it also boggled me how you want only the nice part of you remembered because it's not really "you". I just want to be remembered as Niña, as a whole. The girl who blogs, loves football, was a Camp counselor and a hardcore Potterhead. Don't count out the bad part of me. I want them to remember me for who I am. For my identity, and my faults are also what makes me. In short, I'd like everyone to remember me as I was to them. The pain or happiness I may have given them- they should remember that. Because I want to be known for who I really am.

  1. Love the quotes! My favorite HP quote would have to be: "It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends."

    1. That's a really good quote! So true too. :)

  2. It's Ninaaaaa! I was mentally listing down bloggers whom I'm expecting you to interview, and Nina was one of them (am I a psychic yet omg).


    1. Hahaha! I bet the next blogger to be interviewed is on your list as well. ;)


Thank you so, so much for your encouraging words! I hope your day is as awesome as you are. c:
