I SEARCHED GOOGLE for “get to know you questions” and I found this. La la la, whatever.
What type of music are you into?
The last song I saved on Spotify was “Before We Begin” by Broadcast. (That doesn’t really answer the question, does it?)
What are your hobbies and how did you get into them?
I got into blogging because I genuinely enjoyed writing in high school. I got into painting/sketching because I was living out of town a couple years back and I was sooo bored. That’s when I sketched this Paraluman portrait and I thought, uy, masaya ‘to a!
Are you more of a “work to live” or a “live to work” type of person?
I live to work, I guess? Or whichever one implies that I need to work in order to survive. Mahirap ang buhay bakshi.
How would your 10-year-old self react to what you do?
I think my 10-year old self would be surprised. She would probably ask how, like, why, like — huh? She might also wonder why her older self looks exhausted, and I would try my best to explain to her that sometimes, life just doesn’t turn out the way you want it to. I would also give her a hug and apologize for, ewan ko. I just think my 10-year self deserves an apology from me.
Do you want a family of your own?
The practical answer to this is, honestly, I don’t think I can afford it.
If you won a million dollars, what would you do with the money?
Make a family? Charot. I’d pay off my parents’ mortgage, I’d pay off my student loans, and I’d make sure that my parents and my siblings are in a stable place before I fly back home.
If you could do anything besides what you’re doing now, what would you do?
Since this is all hypothetical anyway, I would say that I still want to write screenplays and short stories, and maybe Precious Hearts novels too. Hihihi.
If you had unlimited money to start your own business, what would it be?
I’d produce movies.
If you found out that today was your last day on Earth, what would you do?
I’d hug my parents and my siblings and I’d send a goodbye message to all my friends back home.
If you see a puddle on the ground, do you walk around it or over it?
I walk around it.
If you could have a super power, what would it be?
If you could go back to anytime in history, where would you go?
My college years. (Sorry ang selfish.)
If you came back in your next life as an animal, what animal would you be?
A bird, maybe?
What would be the title of your memoir?
‘Tang Inang Buhay ‘To Oo
