It’s been so long since I responded to tags, and today I am breaking the streak by sharing #6ThingsAboutMe
as tagged by my Rodnoy @flightofpoesy
which requires a photo of me (this one’s shot by the art of my heart @landlessvillager
💓). So here we go.
1. I am from Southeast Asia but I don’t eat durian and I don’t know how to use chopsticks 😌. 2. @jason_mraz
are my favorite artists. Their #poetic
songwriting, their songs’ soothing strings and voices, inspire the #writer
is my beloved #author
. I have read most of his #books
twice. Tuesdays with Morrie when I was 20 (jobless and failing interviews again and again) and when I was 25 (questioning what I did with my life). His works provided me strength and comfort and stirred my soul in ways none can replicate (yet). 4. I am the eldest among 6 siblings and we are really not a well-to-do family. If you know the poverty stats in the Philippines, we are part of those numbers. But we are slowly moving away from it, by God’s #grace
5. I am almost three weeks onboard a new job which is way beyond I have prayed for. It showed me, in a short period of time, that I am in no way an extrovert. It is a challenging role that I am still learning to wade in. I know I am not alone. 🙏
6. I am turning 27 in a few days and perhaps the last year’s best blessing was the arrival of the man I look forward to spending the rest of my life with. Yes. He is the same guy who shot this photo. He is the “he” of my love poetry 💖. Tagging the closest friends I have kept in this community. Cheers!
