“Do you believe there is someone out there for everyone?”

Who are your heroes/heroines, if any?

The X-Men.

Did you/will you go anywhere on Sunday?

My plan is to not go anywhere, not even to the grocery store. I still have enough food to last me another week.

What always makes you really tired?

Like, really tired? Not having enough sleep, that’s one, and also not doing anything productive. I feel tired even when I just stay in bed the entire day.

When was the last time you did something sexual?

Kanina lang, bakit? Chz hahaha.

Would you ever want to go on a cruise?

Uhm, it’s not something I actively desire but, sure, why not?

Do you know anyone named Jane? What is your association with her?

One of my higher-years in high school was a Jane, I believe? I am currently not acquainted or friends with a Jane though.

How is your hair styled right now? How was it styled 5 years ago?

It’s straight with layers at the tips — is this what you mean by style? Haha. I don’t do anything wild with my hair so it should have the same style five years ago, just different length, I think.

Do you believe there is someone out there for everyone?

Yes, I believe so. Sometimes you just meet them at the wrong time, or sometimes the other person gets hit by a bus before you even cross paths, something like that.

Also, here’s a semi-relevant poem by Shel Silverstein:

Masks
by Shel Silverstein

She had blue skin,
And so did he.
He kept it hid
And so did she.
They searched for blue
Their whole life through,
Then passed right by—
And never knew.

Yep.

What are your plans for the rest of this week?

Just work. I have two client meetings next week and I am both nervous and excited. 😖

Has anyone ever tripped you on purpose or vice versa?

When I was a kid, probably.

Where would you like to go on your honeymoon?

This isn’t something I think about, sorry.

Who was the last child you held?

I…uhm…I don’t remember.

Would you ever spend all day making a ship in a bottle?

It’s not something I actively want to do but if someone hands me a ship-in-a-bottle kit, I might as well give it a try, no?

Have you ever woken up not knowing where you were?

Yeah, dude.

Do you still give those little paper valentines to your friends?

Nope.

Have you ever been in handcuffs? Why?

Nope.

If you could trade hearts with anyone for one day, who would it be?

Trade hearts? Like, literally switch hearts with someone? I think my heart is relatively healthy so I’ll pass on this offer for now.

Who was the last person you showered with, if anyone?

The last time I remember showering with other people was when I was still living in the dorms. There were mornings when my roommates and I would wake up late so we showered together to save time.

Can you answer seventy times seven off the top of your head?

Yep.

Do you get excited whenever you see a rainbow in the sky?

Not super excited. I just recognize it and think, Uy. Rainbow. Nice.

What sport do you think is better than baseball?

I only follow football so, that.

What is one thing you will never change about yourself?

Oooh, that’s a tough one! Hmm. Hmmm…

Okay — I will never, ever change my taste in music. ❤ 🤘

Would you consider naming your daughter Penelope?

I know someone whose daughter’s name is Penelope so maybe not.

Do you listen to your heart or your brain?

I don’t believe this is an either-or thing. You can always make decisions by listening to both.

Would you know how to get to Canada by looking at a map?

I am in Canada.

How did you learn about sex?

Hmm. I don’t know, actually. I guess I learned about it in school? Not through the teachers though, but through my classmates. I remember in grade school I overheard the words “orgasm” and “libido” and I memorized those words so I could look them up in the dictionary later when I got home.

What is something you remember from your childhood, but you remember it vaguely?

Many things! I already wrote about my Titi ng Santol anecdote, and I have so many random childhood memories like it.

When was the last time you made the wrong choice in anything?

I don’t even want to talk about it. #arte

If you were in a movie, would you want a stuntman, or would you want to do the stunts?

Uhh, I don’t know. I’m not interested in being or having a stuntman so, meh.

Also, speaking of random memories, there was a time in high school when I almost became an ekstra (like a bit player) in a Cinemalaya movie. I’ll tell you the story once I get in the mood to write it down, haha.

Do you know anyone who gets EVERYTHING they want because they are so spoiled?

Not in person, no.

Who, alive or dead, would you want to do drugs with?

The same people that I kicked it with in college.

What do you think the 22nd century will be like?

Do you guys know the movie Interstellar? Something like that, but maybe not including the super techie stuff. I think the earth will dry up, our society will still have a vague sense of order, but the higher-ups will be looking desperately for a new planet to colonize for the rest of mankind to live in.

What do you think when you see roadkill on the side of the road?

Ughk!

Did sex ed actually teach you anything?

We don’t have sex ed in the Philippines, do we? I don’t remember having sex ed during my time. We had Health classes and we briefly discussed the reproduction process in Science class, but that’s about it.

Have you ever had an ex that just didn’t understand that it was over?

Wow, is this shade? Choz.

What do you think your mother thought when she first saw you after giving birth?

Happy and relieved, I suppose?

What do you want to be buried with after you die?

Nothing? I don’t care at all, man.

When was the last time you moved to a new house?

At the beginning of the year!

What is the most interesting thing in the room you are in?

Uhhh…not much. It’s practically bare.

I am currently in my bedroom, but above is a photo that I took last night of my living room. I just did my laundry then and I needed to find “creative” ways to hang some of my clothes. I also switched my table around so now my seat faces the wall. This way I can exercise and watch a movie at the same time, hehe.

I’m still deciding on whether I should get a couch or a separate dining table. I don’t want to buy both, and I might end up buying neither. I might just suck it up and do all my work and non-work stuff on the same desk. Work-life balance? I don’t know her, choz.

Anyway…

On a weekend, how long do you typically lay in bed before getting up?

The past two weekends I woke up at around 7 and lay in bed until about 8.

How long was your longest relationship?

Hmm, good question. All together I’d say about a year and 6 months, give or take.

What is your star sign? (ex: Aquarius)

Can you guess?

Now what is the star sign of your significant other/crush?

I don’t have significant other, but I did look up someone’s star sign just now and Mr. Google practically said that this guy and I are not compatible at all. Okay, Google. Hahaha.

Which cities/states have you lived in? You can just name states if you want.

I used to live in Quezon City, and that’s all I’m willing to share for now.

Tell me about how your parents met. How old were they?

I don’t know how they met exactly, but my mom was 25 then and my dad was in his 30s.

Are you in college? If not, where do you want to go for college and why?

I’m done with college, although I have a strong feeling I will go back to school one day to do post-grad.

What makes your bedroom special to you/what is your favorite part about it?

Nothing is special about it, lels.

When washing your hands, do you wet your hands or put soap on first?

I use a bar soap so I wet my hands and the soap at the same time.

If you had to pick one chore to do today, what would it be?

Washing the dishes. In fairness to me ha, I never leave unwashed dishes in the sink.

When was the hardest you ever cried? What was the circumstance?

I cry a lot, man, and it’s hard to tell when was the hardest.

Where do you usually buy your clothes?

I rarely by clothes so I don’t have a legit answer to this question.

Are your fingernails currently short or long?

They’re long-ish.

If you had to be a school teacher, which subject would you teach?

English or Math, maybe?

What do you usually order at Jamba Juice?

I’ve only been to Jamba Juice a handful of times so I can’t name one drink in the menu off the top of my head.

Have you ever been to see Rocky Horror?

Nope.

How long have you had your cell phone?

Not long. I got a “free” phone when I signed up to get Internet for my apartment a couple weeks ago. I use this phone to shoot my vlogs. Exhibit A:

Which gift cards do you have in your wallet?

None.

Which celebrity do you think is the prettiest nowadays?

I don’t know what she looks like these days but I think Shu Qi is very pretty.

    Nung nagrerent pa ako ng apt before, since maliit ang space, instead of getting a couch or dinning table, I opted for ung japanese table ba yun? Hahhaha I dunno what you call it. Then ung parang inuupuang kutson na lang ng mga hapon dun sa japanese table. It serves na as my receiving area and dining narin.

    Get a separate table, para lang you don’t eat kung asan ang work station mo, to avoid spilling accidents. Chaar.

      Waaah good idea! May significant difference pa ba ang Japanese table vs dining table bukod sa height nila? Haha.

      Kailangan ko lang yata talaga ng separate work space, although feeling ko kakain pa rin ako sa harap ng computer hahaha. 😀

        Ung kakainin sa space! Hahahha. Tapos you don’t need dining chairs narin. Nakasalampak kapang kakain sa + taas ng paa. Hahahhaa. I was also thinking dati ung mas madaling bitbitin kapag lilipat ako ng bahay kaya nag japanese table ako.

    Get another table for eating. That’s what I did, pero I still eat on my work/vanity table pag tinamad ako lumipat… ng few steps hahaha! Pero iba rin may dedicated table for working/eating.

    Although I’m planning to remove my work table and get a floor couch tas sa sahig na lang ako magwo-work baka bumili na lang ako ng mababang foldable table for that. Baka pwede rin sayo. But you have a lot of space, dami mong pwedeng gawin, I’m so inggit!
