Bloody Friday mate.
I'm not so good at blog introductions but I hope this finds you well wherever you are in the world. I haven't been the full "me" after the jab, so forgive me if I'm just gonna give you some random stuff for today. Thought you might not be that interested, just wanna share a part of me if that's okay.
What's your go-to dance move? My go-to dance move is the square dance. When I was in 1st-year high school, our year-level dance presentation was the square dance. We had fun practicing and presenting it. It's one of the most memorable dances in my life.
What makes you cry? Onions, dramas, a good scolding, and funny movies. I'm a cry baby.
What makes you cry? Why are you asking me twice?
Do you have any nicknames? Yes, the first is Glaiza. It's supposed to be my real name after Glaiza Heredora(?) but papa changed it. My other nickname is Ngotngot.
Who was your favorite teacher and why? My favorite teacher is Ma'am Borja. She's so good at numbers that she can teach you how to compute Calculus without using a calculator. I enjoyed my Math and Computer Science major subjects because of her.
What is something you can never seem to finish? Paying my debt. I stopped working about 2 years ago. I tried to go back to work as a "kolsener" agent but I got pregnant.
Who inspires you to be better? My kids and my mother.
Have you ever saved someone's life? Yes. She was a patient like me. They had no money to buy a bag of blood, no one in the hospital wanted to help even the nurses. So they were shocked when the patient's husband bought the blood for the transfusion. (Not bragging but a small amount, any amount would do. Nagloload nga tayo ng pangdata di ba or may ibang bisyo tayo. We can at least be humane sometimes.)
Pancakes or waffles? Waffles from Starbucks. I miss it.
Favorite city? Bonifacio Global City or BGC in Taguig, Philippines. Never been outside Pinas.
What dumb accomplishment are you most proud of? Thinking that the 1986 EDSA Revolution was still during Martial Law lol. Sass Sasot was right, I should go back to school.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why? To fly. It used to be the ability to turn back time, not time travel but I changed my mind because of the pandemic. I wanna fly so I can travel without worrying whether I'll catch the virus and become the carrier.
What's your worst habit? Cleaning. I still do it even if I'm already super tired or sick. I clean more when I'm not feeling well.
When people come to you for help, what do they usually want help with? Money sigh. They think I'm a bank myghad sakit sa bangs.
What three words best describe you? The three words to best describe me would be introvert, silent, snob.
What were you really into when you were a kid? When I was a kid, I was into swimming. I love the beach so much that I spend most of my summer swimming with my friends.
Where is the worst place you have been stuck for a long time? Fabella when I was overdue with my eldest. The nurses and doctors kept on shouting to their patients. It felt like forever. I hope they had improved now.
Let me end this article with a quote “Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power…” ~ The Tao the Ching
