Can't wait for the Olympics to start

Growing up, I wasn't really a sporty kid. I was very active in school, and I joined a lot of activities and contests except sporting events. The most sporty thing I ever did was to become a cheerleader for three straight years in high school. I just wasn't built for it. I was clumsy, and I always tripped. My ineptitude in sports was what I always considered as my greatest frustration in my life. It wasn't that I wasn't interested in sports. It was just my inability to get very physical, but I enjoyed watching games and cheering for my friends. Basketball was my favorite (all my crushes in high school played basketball, and I used to be a "score girl" in the summer after senior year during the basketball league at my high school), while volleyball came in second (all of my best friends played and I was their cheerer and water girl). Soccer I could ever comprehend.

Anyway, now that I am all grownup and I have found teleseryes to dumb - their plots insulted my intelligence...I only watch them when there's NOTHING else to watch, but let's save this for another blog post- I watch all the sports shows that I can catch. I am very much addicted to the NBA (to my husband's dismay, since he doesn't like basketball). I subscribed to the NBA league pass and paid around P5000 last season (learned my lesson though..will just subscribe to NBA team pass for the Boston Celtics for the new season). I follow a lot of NBA players and analysts on Twitter and Facebook and read a lot of basketball news. I made a Boston Celtics cake for my 30th birthday, and I have Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo as my cover photo and profile picture on my FB account. I also watched Smart Gilas Pilipinas last year during their trips to FIBA Asia.

At night, I watch UFC reruns with my husband (slowly beginning to enjoy it) and soccer games. I still can't understand soccer very much (although I am told it is similar to basketball), but it's okay. I also watch tennis games (especially if Novak Djokovic is playing), but for the love of God! I just hate watching MLB games (and ESPN always has them).

I am looking forward to the Olympics (will wake up early tomorrow morning and watch). I will be following Team USA even if there isn't a single Celtic player on the roster (but Kobe is there...and even if I hate Lebron, I know he's damn good!). I also enjoy synchronized swimming and gymnastics.

Sports is a whole lot more exciting than watching stupid plots with stupid characters who keep on getting kidnapped and eventually killed by the bad guys. At least for the next few weeks, I have something more wothwhile to watch.

Gemini

Let me start this post by saying that I am a true Gemini.

(From http://www.huffingtonpost.com/horoscopes/astrology/gemini/about/)

Gemini Characteristics and Profile

(May 21 - June 20)
Gemini go everywhere together, hand-in-hand, symbolizing your dual nature. Our world comes in pairs: good and evil, male and female, in and out, yin and yang -- and you Geminis are living proof. Some might say Gemini are an entanglement of paradoxes, but the truth is that Gemini have an easy acceptance of opposites. Gemini world is one of duality. Gemini can like this and that, one thing and its opposite. It's like you see your world through a radio and Gemini can tune experiences and points of view in and out as your interests change. 

You Geminis are curious, talkative, versatile and mentally active. Your mind can bounce around from one topic to another with great ease, making Gemini the champion of cocktail party chatter and lighthearted social encounters. Others will think that Gemini are fun to be with, but your ability to change with the changing winds can also lead others to see Gemini as shallow. 

Gemini motto might be "A rolling stone gathers no moss." You are the eternally youthful child, no matter your chronological age. A razor-sharp wit can have you verbally dueling with the very best of opponents, who moments later are your best of friends. As you fly through life, don't forget to take time to smell the flowers. 

With that said, let me forewarn you about my ambivalence and complex nature, my varied interests, and my unconventional opinions. I could be the angel or the devil. I could hate you with all my gut, yet like some parts of you enough to be kind to you. I could have shallow joys and deep thoughts within moments of each other. I can be your best friend or your worst enemy. 


Wow! Do I sound like a schizo? Maybe I am; maybe I am not. I may not agree with you, and you may not agree with me all the time, but it's all good. It doesn't matter. I'm just being me.

First post

Let me begin by saying that this first post is long overdue.

I set up this blog way back in 2010 (my profile pic was taken in March 2010), but as I have always been a scatterbrain, I forgot all about this. I didn't have a stable Internet connection at that time, and I didn't really have the time to blog. So just like all the blogs that I excitedly started, this was tucked into the back of my mind after more pressing matters (read: WORK!) occupied my mind and my interest waned.

This picture has no relevance to the current post, but I just want
to show off my happy-go-lucky side :D
But tonight, I stumbled on this Blogger.com account. I actually have three blogs connected to this account (I've reverted my posts back to draft since they no longer seemed age-appropriate, teeeheee!), but it is this particular blog that I decided to resurrect. I don't know why, but maybe because I think my life right now is so fabulous that I want to share it to the world? Hahaha! I have two other active blogs where I talk about my creative (and entrepreneurial) side, and I think I just want to have something where I can post about more personal topics. Maybe I could use this as my sounding board; somehow Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter never seem enough for me.

Whoever is interested in finding out what has happened/what is happening to me can just come here and read my posts. I maybe silly one moment and serious in the next. Whoever misses my rants (though I doubt anyone misses that) will be getting a lot of that here. I don't know what else I will write about here, but I hope someone would care enough to follow my blog. Follow me! Follow me! Follow me!

PS. If you need love advice, I might give you that too!
