⁃ Write 7 interesting facts about yourself.
⁃ Nominate 15 amazing bloggers for the award.
Btw I’m writing this on the spot so if you read something that might be off, please know that I did not proofread it. (Sorry! *winks*)
1.) I’m a huge Harry Potter fan.I’m sure you’re all guessing that I might be gay or so close to being gay. Well, I’m not gay you guys. Hehe! I’ve been reading HP since I was like 8 years old. I find it really fascinating. The movies are really great too but I like the books even more. I read the books first; except for HP & the Half-Blood Prince, I’ve seen the movie first. Plus, I kind of like want to start collecting some Harry Potter goodies (like locket, time turner, necklace etc) available at FullyBooked (it’s a local bookstore/shop here in the Philippines) I’ll let you guys know if I have some anyway or I’ll probably write about it!
2.) I love vintage.I honestly think that I’m born on the wrong era/generation. I barely dress up according to fashion trends and all that stuff. I think trends are so short-lived and the clothes are pretty expensive compared to classic pieces. 2.1) I’ve always wanted to take photos through a vintage Polaroid camera! People these days would prefer buying Fujifilm Instax camera etc. I’ve thought about buying one of those too but nothing beats the vintage camera!
3.) I’m a frustrated artist — frustrated actress & singer. Yes, you’ve read that right. I grew up in a world where people would tell me “it’s okay, just act normal” or they’d say “just go with it!” so when I entered high school, I tried joining the Drama Club on my Junior year but I was rejected (Ouch!) but during my Senior year in high school, I was chosen to play Sharpay Evans. And there I knew I had something I could be really proud of. I took the role way too seriously. After that play, my teacher told me that I played it really good and she really did saw Sharpay Evans on stage and in real life. My acting carried on until college — it was amazing but then I never pursued it. 3.1) I do sing. And I rap too. Nicki Minaj & Iggy Azalea style. I’ve only discovered that I could sing when I auditioned at an acoustic rock organization back in college — then again, I was rejected! One girl even told me that “you couldn’t sing!” so after that unfortunate incident, I told myself that I’m going to prove that girl wrong! So I did, I sort of taught myself how to sing and rap. Until one day, I heared my Dad said “You have an amazing voice!” (he heard me singing Adele’s “Someone Like You”) So I went on and on and on until I know I really sound great when I’m singing. And I do. I may have not pursued any of this but I’m so proud of myself for having quite the talent.
P.S. I’ve always wanted to put up a YouTube channel so I can upload my song covers but I wasn’t able to do so.
4.) My ultimate dream is to become a philanthropist and to be a world traveler. I was not born rich, so I know how it feels like when there’s absolutely nothing on someone’s plate; believe me, I’m in a country where you will see people who are less fortunate, people who don’t have anywhere to live but on the streets and so on. Up to this day, whenever I see them on the streets and I have some coins or some food, I’d give it to them because they need it more than I do. I’d like to build a foundation or a charity for them one day. The thought of it makes me happy and I just know that I will fulfill it. 4.1) Who wouldn’t want to travel the whole world, right? Discovering new places, learning a new language, eating/enjoying a country’s delicacies sounds really uplifting to me. I’ve only been in one country outside the Philippines — in China. I was in college, it was an educational business trip for 7 days. And since then, all I ever want is to travel but didn’t had the chance to.
5.) I love parties! Whether it’s a school’s acquaintance party, charity event, annual parties, family brunch, wedding parties — I’ve gone to all of those. Mary is always present! 😀 I’m a wild party girl when I was a teenager up until the time when I found out that I’m pregnant. I had alcohol issues too but I’m very much sober now. Motherhood changed me in so many ways I never thought possible. These days, the only parties that I & Samantha go to are mainly birthday parties — several friends of mine are mothers too. I never imagined going to kiddie parties when I was younger but here I am. Atleast it’s a party, right? 😄
6.) I’m a Born-Again Christian by heart.My whole family and it’s generations back are strictly Catholic — I’m the only one who doesn’t want to be in it anymore. Again, this started when I was in college. A very great friend introduced me to Christianity. I never knew it was something that could really bring me closer to God. My friend, who I call “Ate Che” gave me a wide knowledge about who God really is. She gave a Bible as well. My faith was in action, I pray every now & then. I keep a Bible app too and an app called “Sprinkle of Jesus” I am praying that this year or next year, me and my life partner (he’s a Christian by heart too!) would get to finally be baptized and we’ll be officially Born-Again Christians. *fingers crossed*
7.) I secretly wanted to have 5 kids. (Well now it’s not entirely a secret!) This is probably really ridiculous, but yeah I really do. I wanted to have twins — fraternal twins to be specific 😁 and 3 more. So now I have my first born, Samantha. You guys must be wondering why I want to have 5 kids when I’m only renting a house and my pay is not really ideal to support 5 children — the real reason is that I want to have my own happy big family. The more the merrier right? I have like 6 siblings, I enjoy seeing them whenever I go visit them, I have younger siblings, they’re very cute and all that. 4 kids to go for me, yeah? Haha
There you have it. That’s pretty much the 7 interesting facts about me.
Hope you guys enjoyed reading this blog post & please do check out blogs of these wonderful bloggers that I nominated.
