Visiting my blog religiously whenever I am online has always been the highlight of my day. Even though I don’t often get comments or traffics but I find pleasure in browsing everything I have written on that particular moment. Very nostalgic indeed.
I also observed that most of my entries were about past experiences, feelings and emotions that I went through. I seldom share anything that would reflect me as a person – my favorites, likes, aspirations and even what people say about me. So right now, I would just looooove to do it!
So here it goes:
I love to watch television. Television is my window to the world. I grew up watching the news, travel shows, music channels, game shows, documentaries, reality shows, cooking shows, cartoons and movies. Literally everything. I surf and surf and surf channels until I stumble upon something that would interest me. TV has become one of my biggest influences. I can go on and on about my love for this invention, but I might as well stop now. So much love for TV.
(Some)My Fave TV Shows:
I love to read. My love for reading started when I was in grade school but it was further nourished during my high school days. I used to read Hardy Boys and comic strips when I was a youngster. But when I stepped into teen’s world, I went for romance novels such as Sweet Valley Series, Mill&Boons pocketbooks and others. Then I started reading serious novels such as Sidney Sheldon (I have read all his novels) and the Godfather. From then on, I just couldn’t stop reading. I literally read every day, either paperback or ebooks. I read to keep me sane and happy. Books are my best friends. They comfort me, teach me and stay with me forever.
My Humble Book Collection:
I like to write. My outlet. I am not ‘writer’, really. But I just like to write. For me it is the best venue to voice out my opinions and feelings on a particular matter. I am not really good with words nor do I have creative juices. I write because I just want to – that’s why I have my own blog (this one) and a carry-on journal that I have with me all the time. So whenever I feel down or extremely happy, I have a ready diary to keep me on track! FYI. It kinda feels good to browse through my past entries. Fun, indeed.
I love to eat (but I can’t cook). I grew up in a household who cooks all the time. My parents used to feed dozens of boarders in our home. I always see them cooking and serving food to them. Variety of food was magically produced in our kitchen. It was an organized chaos. Very fascinating. Thus, we often eat delicious home-cooked meals every time. But the sad part was that I never learned to do it. I just love to eat. My faves are: lumpia shanghai, sinigang, mechado, vegetables, pancakes, chicken adobo and a lot more!Yum!
I am ‘kinda/sort-of’ antisocial. Oh well, I have been hearing this comment all my life. I would not really say that I am ‘antisocial’, I am more of introvert and shy. I don’t go out much unless there’s a need. I don’t like strolling in a densely populated area. It suffocates me. I am more of a home buddy, just staying home and contemplating is more of my cup of tea. I don’t know, but I just don’t enjoy crowd. It’s noisy and it’s messy. I like seclusion and serenity. But don’t get me wrong, I can stand chaos, I even lived in the Metropolis for quite awhile but I just don’t like it. Weird? – I don’t mind, it’s who I am.
I don’t pretend. Pretensions. Huh! I hate it. I want people to know who I am. If they don’t accept me, then that’s their prerogative. Most of my life, I have a notion of someone who isn’t me. I’ve always wanted to be someone else. Then one day, I just woke up and reality sank in. I can never be those people, I can only be me. That’s the time I started to love my self – short, brown, has many weaknesses but also has strengths. Loving every bit of it. PS: I also hate people who pretend, please, be real!
I don’t like to insist myself. There are many instances in my life when I got rejected. Not really accepted by many. It stung like hell but now, I have already overcome it. In fact, I got used to it. Of course, now I understand that not all will like us. The sad reality. Thus, if I wasn’t welcome, I accept it and that I would never insist myself. Plain and simple. Let me share my fave quote on that –
My FAITH is EVERYTHING. These past months had been one of the most challenging time for me. I really had to go through a lot. But I never gave up and I will never give up! And that is all because of my FAITH. My faith — that everything will be okay and that God will never leave me. All of these obstacles are just tests to keep me stronger and wiser. No matter what, I am keeping my faith, it’s everything to me.
Oh well. That’s it for now. I still have a lot of things to tell but it’s time stop myself. I am being narcissistic right now which I also loath. I am just happy to finally blog about this, I also rediscover a couple of things about myself. Whew, this was fun! I’m totally gonna do this again!Next time!=)
