All about me 10 day challenge – Day 10


Finally. I’m on my day 10. Congratulate me, you all. wahaha. I did not expect I’d be able to finish this.

Day 10 -In these past months, what have you learned?

I learned that it’s really hard to make decisions. – I thought the coin flipping would do me good but it did not help that much. I have had an extreme feeling of ambivalence before I have made up my mind on what to do before this year ends. I’m literally shoving clichés and quotations down my throat to boost my resolve. It’s ironic that you start appreciating those things you thought not indispensable which will make you think twice all over again whether you have made the right choice. But then the right choice is never absolute. What matters is if you’re at peace with what you have chosen.

I learned that I could be a good liar at times. Please spare my parents about this. They don’t have any idea what I have done. I won’t go into details but I’m a bit proud knowing I could make a good actress, LOL. But seriously, the feeling of lying to someone is more than horrible that you could ever imagine. It felt like you’re going to throw up anytime yet you couldn’t even swallow your own saliva. I hated the feeling big time.

I learned that I could actually be a bitch if I wanted to – I have had outburst these past few months. I confronted a housemate of mine and have raised my middle finger to an annoyingly pervert old man in the bus. I don’t know where I have placed my temperance when these incidents happened.

Allow me to pat myself on the back for a job well done. I have finished the All about me 10 day challenge! ang galing ko!wahaha 🙂

All about me 10 day challenge – Day 9


OMG! (ang arte lang?haha) day 9 na!yehey!

Day 09 – Pictures of you and your family

I believe that family is a relative term. Most often that not, your family are those persons whom you share the same blood, genes and stuff. However, there are times that you call a crowd your family without even sharing a bit of any DNA linkage.

I’m very grateful to have been blessed with both. A family of my own by blood and a family to call by bond.

aubu's nieces & nephews ^^

I may not be the most affectionate person there is but one thing I’m sure of, I love these guys truly. 🙂

All about me 10 day challenge – Day 7


Onti na lang, malapit ko nang matapos ang challenge. Mabuhay!

Day 07 – A recent picture of yourself and 15 interesting facts about you.

1. Dati, akala ng mga ate ko, magbibinata ako at lalaking tibo. Ang karaniwan kong porma nung edad 13-16 pag asa kalye ako ay shorts na puruntong, maluwag na t-shirt at panyo na nakabandana sa ulo ko. Tapos mahilig pa ako sa online games. Nakumbinsi lang sila na babae talaga ako nung ako ay magkaboypren, right after graduation nung college.

2. Mas madami akong babaeng crush kesa lalakeng crush. Sa kasalukuyan, may 4 na crush akong babae sa opis namin. Unfortunately, wala akong crush na lalake sa opis. Crush na artistang lalake meron. Si Piolo. Oo. Alam ko na sinasabi ng karamihan na berde ang dugo nya pero keber, yummy pa din sya sa paningin ko. Crush ko din si John Lloyd. hehe

3. Pag natutulog ako, half lang ung pagkakasara ng mata ko sabi ng mga kapatid ko. Minsan nga sasabihan ko ung ate ko na piktyuran ako ng tulog para makita ko ung ichura ko.

4. Bet na bet ko ang magmodel-modelan pose basta kumportable ako sa mga kasama ko pero pag hindi ko masyadong kaclose ang mga kasama ko, nagkakasya na lang ako sa peace sign na pose.

5. Mabilis akong kumain at may anaconda ako sa sikmura. Minsan na akong nasabihan na kain construction worker daw ako.

6. Unang beses akong nagcutting sa klase nung grade 1 ako. Hindi ko kasi matancha ung substitute teacher namin. Mainit ang dugo niya sakin at mukha siyang mangkukulam.

7. Noong hayskul, ipinusta ko ang titulo ng bahay at lupa namin sa isang chess match. Kalaban ko ang isang bully kong kaklaseng lalake. Ang bet, kung sinong matalo, susunugin ung titulo ng bahay at lupa. Nanalo ako sa unang laban kaso naghanap ng magaling na resbak ung mokong kaya naging all 1. Ang resulta, quits lang kami. Walang nasunog na titulo ng lupa.

8, Minsan sa buhay ko, nagustuhan ko ang salbakuta at ibang pang local rapper na puro kagaguhan ang laman ng kanta. Kabisado ko ang stupid love. (actually hanggang ngayon kabisado ko pa ata, haha)

9, Nung elementary, natampal ako sa braso ng teacher ko kasi nung nagfield trip kami at nagpunta sa zoo, pinakain ko ng mais ung isang unggoy dun samantalang may nakalagay na “No feeding to animals”.

10. Meron akong tatlong pares ng stilleto (red, brown at black) na may taas na nagrarange ng 2-4 inches high at meron din akong wedge na 3 inches high. Kaya ko yung ilakad ng tuwid ng hindi natatapilok basta wag madulas ung lalakaran.

11. Unang beses akong nasabihan ng “I love you” nung hayskul ako. Para akong nabingi at ang nasabi ko lang ay “ha?”. Tapos nagmadali na akong umuwi. Kinabukasan, parang walang nangyari kasi hindi ko na siya masyadong pinansin. haha

12. Hindi ako marunong magbisikleta. Wala ata talaga akong kabala-balanse sa katawan.

13. Hanggang ngayon, trip ko pa din ang mga anime at manga.

14. Minsan sa buhay ko, nagkaroon ako ng mala-stalker na suitor. Ang masasabi ko lang, ang creepy dre!

15. Huli akong nalasing nung ako ay third year college. Naglaro ng pusoy dos (ata?basta larong baraha) ung dalawa kong superduperfriends at dahil di ako marunong maglaro nun, ang sabi nila sakin, kung sino ung matalo sa kanila, iinom nung vodka na may pineapple juice tapos ako iinom din kasabay ng matatalo, kinabukasan ko na lang narealize nung nahimasmasan na ako na inuto pala nila ako kasi kahit sino matalo sa kanila, ako pa din ang dehado at malalasing ng husto. 2 bote ng cossack blue ata ung nainom namin nun. Sabi nila grabe daw pala ako malasing ng sobra, humihiga daw ako sa floor ng CR. Nung pinipilit daw nila akong tumayo dahil madumi ung sahig, ang sagot ko daw “alam ko, nursing student kaya ako”.

ayan, naamoy ko na ang tagumpay na matapos ang challenge na ito, 3 to go! hehe

All about me 10 day challenge – Day 6


It’s my 6th day of the challenge!wahu! ^^

Day 06 – Plans/dreams/goals you have

Pangarap kong maging mayamang-mayaman. Wahaha, yung tipong makakapagtour ako kasama ng mga mahal ko sa buhay around the world nang hindi iniisip ung plane fare at accomodations sa lugar na pupuntahan. Yung tipong makakapagshopping kami ng mga kaibigan ko at mabibili yung mga gadgets na gustong gusto namin nang hindi tinitignan ang price tag. (ako na ang materialistic)

Eto seryoso na.

Pangarap kong tuparin ang mga pangarap ng mahal ko sa buhay at kasabay noon ay ang pagtupad sa mga sarili kong pangarap. (malunod kayo sa salitang pangarap)

plans/dreams/goals that I have: too many to mention (autograph book?haha)

All about me 10 day challenge – Day 4


Yehey ulit! Nakaka-apat na ako sa , 😀

Day 04 – How you found out about blogging and why you made one

Nalaman ko ang blogging noong ako ay nagsimulang mag-aral sa mataas na paaralan in short noong hayskul. Nalaman ko ito dun sa katabi ko sa computer shop na lagi kong pinupuntahan dati sa may manggahan. May nagkukulitan kasing dalawang magkaibigan na katabi ko ding nagrerent ng PC tapos may nasabi ung isa na mag-aupdate siya ng blog niya. Nacurious ako kaya niresearch ko kung ano ung blog. Nung nalaman ko, napagtripan kong magbasa-basa pa tungkol dito. Tamang stalker lang ng blog ng iba ang trip ko noon. Mas prefer ko dati ang magsulat sa notebook ng mga angst at kagaguhan ko sa buhay. Tsaka wala naman kaming PC sa bahay kaya hindi ko din mamemaintain ang blog kung meron man ako nito dati. Magastos kung every now and then magrerent ako ng PC sa computer shop malapit samin para magblog. Ang aking alternative? notebook/journal, hehe. Matipid pa, ang kaso lang magastos sa ballpen. haha

Bakit nga ba ako nagsimulang magblog? Tamang trip lang. Kung hindi ako nagkakamali fourth year high school ata or first year college ako nagstart magblog. Nadagdagan kasi ng onti ung allowance ko kaya pwede na magrent ng PC pag nasa wisyo ako sumulat. Tsaka sobrang adik ako nun sa Flyff na tipong dis oras na ng gabi andun pa ako sa computer shop. Nakikigulo din ako sa mga kaguild kong naglalaro ng Dota kahit saling pusa lang ako. Karaniwan, bago magsimula ung online games marathon, sumisimple akong gumawa ng blog entry.

Una akong nagblog sa friendster tapos gumawa din ako sa multiply tapos sa tagged tapos sa shutterfly pero parang gumawa din ata ako sa blogdrive or blogspot ata pero hindi ko na tanda. Sa mga nabanggit kong website ako karaniwang naglalagay ng mga blog entry hanggang sa madiskubre ko ang wordpress at dito karaniwang tumatambay sa kasalukuyan.

wahu! 6 to go 😉

All about me 10 day challenge – Day 2


Today is day 2 for my “all about me 10 day challenge”. Earlier, I was contemplating whether I should continue this 10 day challenge thing or not. After I few minutes, I found myself in front of my laptop typing in my entry. I guess the urge to finish this challenge got the better of me (wink)

Day 2 – Nicknames you have; why you have them

Aubz/Aubs, AuBu, Aubi, Abu, Abie, Bonch, Bonchie, Bonchiekay, Bonchai, Bonsai & Bata. Those are my nicks at this time.

Aubz/Aubs – the first 3 letters counts for the first 3 letter of my given name. As for the last letter, “S” and “Z” can be used interchangeably. It depends on the one’s calling me.

AuBu – the first 2 letters counts for the first 2 letters of my given name and the second 2 letters counts for the first 2 letters of my surname. A classmate of mine back in high school coined this nick.

Aubi – the first 2 letters counts for the first 2 letters of my given name, as for the third letter, it also counts for the first letter of my surname. As for the fourth letter, I don’t know where my classmate got it.  I always introduce myself using my whole name and she finds the idea of putting the letter “I” next to the first 3 letters of my name cool.

Abu – the first letter comes from the first letter of my first name, the last 2 comes from the first 2 letters of my surname. A colleague of mine uses this to address me.

Abie – my classmates/playmates back in elementary school uses this nickname to call me back then.

Bonch – my nickname at home. I was supposed to be the “bunso” in the family so the “bunso” was morphed into “Bonch”. I don’t know how did that happen. Sure it sounds alike. I wonder why they didn’t bother to change my nickname when my dear little brother arrived.

Bonchiekay – my nickname “Bonch” morphed again. This is the nick my big brother kuya Bok and little brother JL use to call me when I don’t respond to them immediately back when we were all together.

Bonchai – one of my cousins uses this as her endearment to me. I could literally hear her voice upon typing this. (Bonchaaaiiiii, ughhhhh)

Bonsai – nickname given to me by my younger brother when he feels like making fun of me. Sometimes, he sends me forwarded text messages with a greeting at the last part of the message that says “good morning ate bonsai!” I don’t like this nickname that much but if it’s my little brother calling me this, I think I could endure.

Bata – my kuya-kuyahan back in college gave me this nickname and he’s still using this to address me until now. Why? He still thinks of me as a kid.

(bowing my head) I, thank you! There you go. Nicknames enumerated. As for the why’s, some I have answered but some still remains a mystery even to me. (echos)

yey! I finished day 2! (nanonosebleed na ako sa EOP, haha, 8 to go) 😀

All about me 10 day challenge


I have lots of things in mind these past few weeks so I decided to do this all about me challenge that I saw while blog hopping. This is just to take a break from things boggling my brain. (My sincerest apology to the WP blog I took this idea from, I’ve tried different tags and phrases but I can’t seem to find your blog again). The all about me challenge idea was supposed to be a 30 day challenge but I only have 11 days to go before the current month ends so I decided to tweak the “All about me 30 day challenge” and made it “All about me 10 day challenge” instead.

To jumpstart the 10 day challenge, I’ll begin with Day 01- The meaning behind your blog site

I can’t remember the blog name I used when I first created this blog but I’m sure the name’s far different from it’s current name. I just can’t seem to remember no matter how hard I tried though.

The odd one out is my blog’s current name. In my entire being, most often that not, people’s impression about me is that I’m different, mysterious, odd, bizarre, weird and eccentric. Yes. Name all the words synonymous with the word “different”. I don’t know how did they come up with the idea that I’m all that. I know I’m a bit reserved and I could easily fit into the introvert kind of person category but is that equivalent to being mysterious? Just so you know, I’m also an adventurous person. I like going out and trying new things. Which is why a friend of mine got confused when I ask her to which category do I belong to; to the introvert type or the extrovert type? She said, “Introvert ka na extrovert pero, ang labo!” Well, I don’t actually know but maybe, there’s a relative connection that’s why I’m labelled as such. Ask them.

The odd one out is an embodiment of what most people say about me and what I would want to be; definitely not an outcast but someone who dares to make a difference.

Literally, being the odd one out means someone who doesn’t belong; someone peculiar and deviant but I’m sure once in your life you’ve felt the need to be different (ako na ang assuming).

So I guess I’m not so odd after all. I’m still one of you.

****

Oh, as for the remaining challenge for my All about me 10 day challenge, just wait (9 to go) 😉
