Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Made in the Philippines, matured in the East Coast, and migrated to
the West Coast. I am always curious about how others live, think,
and feel, and what meanings they derive from their lives. Sometimes
I am serious and intense. Other times, I am loud, silly, and goofy.
I am deceptively extroverted but a true introvert at heart. But
being an introvert doesn't mean I can't be fun, adventurous, and
open to experiences.

Books: Lately I've been reading a lot of books on social justice,
multiculturalism, and psychoanalysis. Are there any new books, in
these topics, that you think I should read/add to my
Movies & Shows: Anything that's going to help me see a
different perspective in life. I'd also like to watch quality
horror movies with a special someone; I can't watch that stuff on
Music: I grew up listening to R&B and Hip Hop. I like looking
up acoustic covers of R&B, Hip-Hop and Top 40s on YouTube. I
have a soft heart for those who love old skool 90s R&B ;)
Food: I am willing to try most dishes. But I tend to gravitate to
sushi and Asian cuisines. I also try to eat healthy by consuming
organic food and fresh ingredients...but sometimes you just cant
get everything organic or fresh!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Am I doing enough? Am I being the best person I can be? Do I do an
awesome job with my work? How can I continue paying the expensive
standard of living in San Francisco, while enjoying the simple
pleasures in life? I wish I had more time to read my books!

having dinner and catching up with a good friend, dancing the night
away, analyzing and discussing some contemporary political or
societal issue, or passing out on my bed.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get frustrated with those who have unchecked privilege (classism,
sexism, and racism) and entitlement. I value people who have
critical thinking skills, emotional self-awareness, humility, and
assertiveness. Lastly, I appreciate those who empower and inspire
marginalized and oppressed communities
