“But what can a decent man speak of with most pleasure?
Answer: Of himself.
Well, so I will talk about myself.”
– Notes From The Underground (Fyodor Dostoyevksy)
I am a simple person. I always aim to make a difference but I never ever dream of grandstanding nor world domination. In a day, I work for eight hours, sleep for six, and try to make the most out of the remaining ten hours. My simple vices are reading, eating, watching TV and DVDs, traveling when budget permits, more reading, engaging in silly to serious conversations, and listening to music. I can live forever just by doing them. I am not a fan of extreme challenges and dangerous exploits.
Books are my greatest passion. I enjoy reading every genre though my moods certainly dictate what I read during certain moments. I DO NOT like hardbound books, not only because they are more expensive, but because they are heavy. Trade paperbacks are best for me. I also don’t dig deckle-edge pages. I have no particular favorite author as I read books on any genre.
I love riding trains and the feeling of being inside a plane when it takes off.
I will never get tired of eating chicken dishes, chocolates, french fries, and sweet beans.
I’m drawn to interesting people. Lawyers, too.
I have a lot of acquaintances but maintain only a few trusted friends in my circle. I do not trust people easily but I believe in the natural goodness of people.
I love blabbing about my life, no matter how incoherent my thoughts are, but I’m still a true-blue introvert.
My celebrity guilty pleasure is Jennifer Aniston. Seriously.
I daydream a lot.
I name my things.
I love love.
