Most part of it has long been written but unpublished until now. Since my professor demanded us to introduce ourselves, I might as well post it.
Numerous times I tried to describe myself, about 90% of them I failed. I realized that either I should be taking an expectator’s seat to see who and what I am or I should just be taking you in my ride. My e-life should do well in introducing me.
Yes, the typical guy with facebook, twitter, google+, foursquare, and tumblr; but no, I don’t usually get along with what the flow of pop culture which dictates how the society would behave. Sometimes, I even tend to be selfish with the things I like; I don’t want the mass of people to know the things (i.e. songs) that I am into. I even refer to it as “mass-ified” or “corrupted”. I only want few people to know it. This is, perhaps, because I like to be one of the few in certain things; the prestige and honor that it may encompass.
I like to talk (which is why this post is getting long by the minute) but could be taciturn at first. I had a hard time sharing my thoughts but I eventually learned to, thanks to social media (blogging). I love music; pop, alternative, country, rock, ballad… pretty much any genre, I know how to appreciate good music. I am sports-minded. I play volleyball, badminton, do fun runs; but not apparent with my physique. I like to be good at other sports as well, lawn and table tennis, triathlon, hockey, polo, archery, softball, mountaineering, and so many more. And I also used to dance.
I love to read (at times). I have read quite a number of books. Some popular titles are Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons, The Lost Symbol; the Harry Potter Series; some of The Series of Unfortunate Events series; The Hunger Games Trilogy; Eleven Minutes, By the River Piedra ; The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; The Secret Garden; Shutter Island; The Greatest Salesman in the World; McArthur, Ang Paboritong Libro ni Hudas, Stainless Longganisa, Kapitan Sino, Ang Mga Kaibigan ni Mama Susan ; Ligo Na U, Lapit Na Me; Titser; Gapo; Bata Bata, Paano Ka Ginawa. And as of posting time, there are a lot of other books in my shelf (and in my phone, ebooks), waiting to be read! I also love to watch movies and American TV series; Chuck is my favourite. Among others are The Big Bang Theory, Fringe, and The Walking Dead. I also want to watch Anime series but I haven’t, Death Note is the last one I was able to finish.
I also like to take random photos and to learn photography. I also cook simple Filipino dishes. I love to get involved in intellectual conversations; to discuss social issues and take part/side and take action if needed.
I want to explore the world. Go to Japan and see Mt. Fuji, experience the bullet trains. Go see the royal Great Britain. To see the rich art and history of France, Italy, Germany, Greece, and other European countries. Go to US to see the majestic Grand Canyon. To Africa and see the wild.
And ultimately, I want to be a great chemical engineer. To contribute to different fields of science; biotechnology, nanotechnology, materials science, even in pharmaceuticals. I want to study in Stanford University and Cambridge University for my post-graduate degrees. I also want to experience the educational system of other countries as well.
I know, this is such a big dream to fulfil but… no, no but’s! These are mine, and I know how to dream!
