25 Random Facts + 1 truth

OK, I resisted from doing this but I'm kinda feeling down tonight, so what the heck! Here it is:
(from Facebook)

Rules: Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose at least 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you.

1. I am proud of my skin color. Nuf said.

2. I was the shortest guy in my batch in HS, but I was the CAT Corps Commander. Everyone was under my "control" every Wednesday afternoon, but I never did any power trip. (Though I know they wanted to shoot me then hehe)

3. I was a member of the school Choir. It's been years.

4. I was the News editor of the school paper, and I almost didn't graduate because of a column I wrote. I was asked by the school president (a nun!) to revise it, a few days before graduation. I did not. But someone revised it without my knowledge.

5. Three things I wanted to be when I was young: a priest, a lawyer, and air force pilot. John Grisham made me realize I don't want to be a lawyer, PMA rejected my height (when I was graduating in HS) and I'm still thinking of being a priest.

6. I have not regrets whatsoever. I only learn from the stupid things that I do. If there is something that I can change, I wish I am still a virgin (at 25!).

7. I have no capacity for hatred. I only loose respect for people, but I don't know how to hate them. I easily forget the details of their sins.

8. I don't wanna grow old. I wanna die at 50, or 60 years old, the latest. I don't want to be "ulyanin" and smell old.

9. I believe GMA is evil, but we deserve her for we are not doing anything to stop her. Stop me now.

10. My measure of success: if straws and plastic are banned and phased out - at least in this country in my lifetime.

11. I was lost in Beijing once, and I was standing on the street for 2 hours asking about 200 people who passed by if they speak any English. EVERYONE ignored me. This was 2 years before the Olympics.

12. In connection to 11, I paid the value of 800 pesos for a "tricycle" ride to my hotel, which was on the next street where I was standing for two hours. Pretty stupid for a 20 year old, but hey, it was my first international travel. And I was alone!

13. I once bargained with God, when I was young (like 11), to let me see Bohol, Palawan and Batanes first before I die. I've been to Palawan and Bohol, so I'm trying to stay away from Batanes.

14. I am proud of the fact that I am friends with ALL my ex's.

15. My shortest relationship was 1 day (or more like 6 hours) in HS. She said yes in the morning, at the school library. We broke up in the afternoon. The reason? POLITICS! She was the class president, I was the VP.

16. I had 3 near death experience so far: 1. while swimming in UP Visayas campus after 3/4 of the class failed the algebra exams (i happen to pass it, but was sympathizing hehe) and the waves "swallowed" us to the deeper part. 2. While sitting on a rock/island facing the Pacific and a big wave "swallowed" me again (My hands were bleeding holding on to the rocks) and 3. When I chose a different route to a mountain summit and I found myself holding on to a single shrub on 90 degree slope, with a ravine the height of a 5 story building. I don't know how I ended up there.

17. I am always skinhead. Less shampoo, less water pollution, no sachets, no gels, no bottles. Gay magnet pa! haha (Kidding)

18. I only have 1 vice: SPA/ massage. I don't smoke and rarely drink (I aim to refuse any and ALL alcohol when I'm 26).

19. I am a shy person, meaning I wouldn't volunteer to take the stage. But when, for any reason, I am on the stage, I OWN IT! I do enjoy public speaking, only because I believe in what I am saying as an environmental advocate.

20. I am unemployed since 2007. I have work (tons of work!) but I don't have any employee-employer relationship with anyone. And I like it that way.

21. If we will have a constitutional convention soon, I will run as a delegate. I have to be part of history - and I will make sure that the new constitution will have provisions against political dynasties.

22. I want to get married next year(10-10-10), or enter the seminary. I have a few months to decide.

23. I want to live in Singapore for a short time. I'm a sucker for order, people abiding the law, and taxi drivers who are not rude or greedy (at least they have receipts!).

24. My work always involved handling people who are a lot OLDER than me, and that is the most challenging (and sometimes frustrating) part of my work ever since.

25. I don't want to call my self a vegetarian (I hate labels, of any kind), but I choose not to eat PORK, BEEF, chicken and anything that crawls, walks, runs, hop, fly or anything that breaths air directly. Someday, I will be able to give up seafood also.

And I don't like reading what I wrote, so please pardon the typos (wait, this is no. 26! HEHE)

One Truth: The greatest love of my life so far is with a Swedish girl. And someday, I'm gonna go to Sweden and find her, just to tell her just that. But I'm sure she's married now.
