1.) I have this uncanny ability to catch cockroaches.
Eww I know. It was on my 16th birthday that I developed this skill (if you can even call it that). I was happily asleep when I felt something flutter by my headboard and just like that I caught it with my bare hand as if it were acting on its own accord (take note I was sleeping! Haha!). Panira ng beauty sleep. After stirring a 'lil, I realized what I just did and went straight to the bathroom to wash my hands and soak it in alcohol. Haha! 'Coz of that incident, my family now teases me as the "Ipis Queen" 'coz they think it follows me wherever I go and that I'm the only one who has the special abilities to catch 'em. *Shudders* gross naman. So not glamorous. Hahaha! :))
2.) I can draw and it's heavily influenced by my love of anime.
3.) I love detective stories, mysteries and police procedural dramas.
I'm not sure if I have expressed this enough here on my blog but I love those things mentioned above. In my intermediate years, I was already into reading Nancy Drew mystery books. Now though, I'm more likely to read Sherlock Holmes and Lisa Gardner's crime novels. I still love Nancy though and she will always hold a special place in my heart as the first sleuth who got me hooked on detective stories. As for the police procedural dramas, I'm currently loving Criminal Minds, NCIS, Bones, and CSI among others.
4.) I want to be a detective/FBI agent if I weren't into Fashion/girly things/and if I were tough enough to qualify for it.
Random and almost foolish, I know. Haha! If I were living in an alternate world/reality, I'll be an FBI agent specifically assigned in the Behavioral Analysis Unit specializing in profiling criminals or as a detective/teen sleuth. This must be due to my love of number 3. :))
5.) I am a homebody.
I only go out when my friends call for one but that doesn't happen often since we usually just meet during the summer and term breaks. And, I dunno about you guys but I enjoy staying in and bumming around the house all day. I like watching TV, reading novels and surfing the net all-day and I don't find doing those things boring. Hehe. Whenever there is a family outing which involves going to the beach (most of the time), I'd gladly stay home instead (as I am also not a beach babe). My blockmates could also attest to this since I seem to always be in a hurry to go straight home after school hours. Yes, home is definitely where my heart is. Haha!
6.) I think I have a very "split-personality" erm well...personality. Haha!
No, I'm not talking about the disorder. I can't fully explain it but I seem to have two, almost completely different personalities. One of which is my being such a prim and proper girl. This is usually exhibited when I am around new acquaintances. I guess it's because of how I carry myself when I'm speaking (like how I get so formal all of a sudden for reports and stuff like that) and some say the "accent" which contradicts my very bubbly disposition and my Tagalog/Filipino-speaking, wapoise (no poise), bakla self.
7.) I am wapoise in real life.
Do not be fooled by my uhm...graceful(?) poses as seen on my photos here on the blog 'coz I am a very wapoise lady. I laugh really hard (as in yung tipong distorted na yung mukha ko kakatawa, high-pitched laugh with matching pa-sipa sipa effect pa at sabay hampas sa katabi) which earned me the titles Jossabayo (Jossa + Kabayo), Petrang Kabayo (due to the pag-sipa gesture that I make when laughing real hard) and a whole lot of other names that have been thought of by my friends. Haha!
8.) I am drawn to nerdy, super smart guys. (mapa-fictional man o totoong buhay) Hahaha!
Sorry but I rarely get attracted to jocks, the prince charming and the boy-next-door guys. I usually develop crushes on nerds/smart guys and the like. Hahaha!
Artie of Glee (Kevin McHale)
Dr. Spencer Reid of Criminal Minds (Matthew Gray Gubler)
Did you know that his character in Criminal Minds has an IQ of 187, an eidetic memory and can read 20,000 words per minute! Hell yezzz I super crush him! Now that's my kind of guy. HAHA!Tom of (500) Days of Summer (Joseph Gordon Levitt)
Well, I certainly had fun doing this. Hope you enjoyed reading this. Though I'm pretty sure you find me weird now. Oh well. Haha!
'Til the next post!
