30-Day Challenge 2: The History Behind "TRA"


Question of the Day: In my last post, I confessed that I know how to burp by will. Care to 'fess up a hidden talent of yours?
Day 02: The meaning behind your Tumblr Blog name.
My second-ever post on this blog actually dealt with the meaning behind my alias, Red Angel. Looking back at all the old stuff I wrote when I first started blogging, it is almost embarassing to read what I wrote as an unexperienced blogger! 8) It is still fascinating to me what a long way I have come.
Basically, the idea of a "Red Angel" came to me when I fantasized what the name of my band would be if I ever chose to make one. One of my favorite colors is red because if its rich hues and meaningful symbolism behind that color. In China (Ethnicity=Chinese! for those of you who don't know), red is associated with good luck and fortune; it can also stand for love, passion, blood, and pretty much any super intense emotion.
My goal in life is to be my best self and use my writing towards improving society for the better, sharing my unique experiences and others' as well. I constantly strive to help and serve others, whether it's through lending an ear and shoulder for a friend to cry on, spreading awareness about breast cancer, trick-or-treating for UNICEF, or simply writing the story of someone who has survived something traumatic. I always try to be there for other people, and be as close to a guardian angel as I can be... without the wings, of course.
Well, I hope you enjoyed that little tidbit about the blog and about me. :-) According to the TRA poll results, 57% of you would like to see more personal entries on my blog and get to know more about me as a person. Again, thanks to all who participated in the poll, I really appreciated all the feedback I received!
In other news, I FINALLY GOT A NEW CAMERA. Being a huge fan of Nikon, I got this camera for Chinese New Year, and have fallen absolutely in love with it. So! You can expect to see a lot more photos now, which 28% of you voted for! Hurray!
However...I have two Calculus and Economics exams on Wednesday and Friday, respectively, that I must cram for. Most likely you can expect the next post from me (the public-speaking entry that I promised!) on either Friday or Saturday! I hope you all have a fantabulous week!

It's great to get to know the story behind your name! Very creative :)

Isn't it wonderful to look back over your blog and see how it's "matured"? I feel the same way about mine!

I hope you did well on your exams!

Cool story! :D

My story is that my name is Trisha (well it's Patricia, but moving on...) and so I call myself Trisha. lol. Oh, and W O R D + S T U F F is just what I came up with on the fly. And "The Farseas" is from my epic fantasy that will never be finished. Ever.
