Nicked again from Bom!

The Life Survey


01. Have you ever really cried your heart out?~
I haven't been so much of a crybaby recently, but when I cry, I cry like there's no tomorrow!

02. Have you ever cried yourself to sleep?~
Yes, and I hope to never go through that again.

03. Have you ever cried on your friend's shoulder?~
Not literally, but I did cry in front of friends. And most of the time, it's for some stupid reason like the time I almost destroyed the microwave oven at the office! But when it comes to big stuffs, I try not to let friends see me in an emotional state. They sometimes interpret it as me being strong, ako, I just think I'm being selfish.

04. Do you cry when you get an injury?~
I think I have a higher threshhold for pain, but I remembered crying when I sprained my left ankle.


01. Are you a happy person?~
I have my moments, but generally, I am a happy person.

02. What makes you happy?~
Lots of things - being with friends, talking, overanalyzing, going out, staying at home, reading, pag nakikita ko yung cute na Golden Retriever sa Perea, listening to music and creating my daydreams, text messages, waking up in the morning and realizing I still have another 10 minutes before the alarm rings and therefore another 10 minutes to just lie in bed, pag nakikita ko ang crush ko, solving a Sudoku puzzle in under 20 minutes, the fact that Christmas is just around the corner and seeing the lights in Ayala!

04. Is being happy overrated?~
Of course not. Although some of the reasons people come up with why someone should be happy are grossly overrated. Nobody has the right to decide for you what will make you happy.

05. Can music make you happy?~
Yes, especially if it has a special meaning to me. Meron ding time when I would be listening to a song and I would realize its meaning, whether happy or sad or angsty pa, and I would feel happy. Weird, but true. Music is also a source of constant amusement because I tend to mix up lyrics of songs that I ended up singing the first parts of a song correctly and then segue to a totally different song!


01. How many times have you had your heart broken?~
Well, I've gone through one major heartbreak. I was a big mess, feeling ko hindi ko talaga kaya. But I'm okay now! I've had previous small heartbreaks, the unrequited ones, or cases of "the right love at the wrong time".

02. Anyone besides your friends/family ever said they loved you?~

03. Have you ever told someone you loved them?~
Yes, but not as much as I want to. I want to be more demonstrative, but I'm really not that big on love gestures and stuffs.


01. Who do you actually hate?~
Hate is such a strong word. Well, there are people na, I think the world would be better off without them hahaha.. Okay, it sounded mean and it might sound as though I really hate them, but I don't hold grudges, I would feel that way for a moment, and then wala na. And anyway, hate is not the opposite of love. If you know what it is, it is what I feel for them.

02. Have you ever made a hit list?~
As I said, I don't hold grudges. In my world, if I don't like a person, they would just fall from the face of the earth. In short, they are just not too important para pag-aksayahan ng panahon.

03. Are you a mean bully?~
I am not a bully. But you know what, I think I have a capacity to be really cruel. People say that I'm just being frank or sometimes I would reason out that I'm only playing devil's advocate, but I sometimes say things that could really hurt, and I'm not proud of it.

04. Have you ever been on a hit list?~
I wouldn't know. Probably. Nobody's universally liked by everyone so I'm bound to be on at least one hit list.

01. Are you happy with yourself?~
There's a lot to improve, but yes, I'm happy and content.

02. Do you wish you could be someone else?~
Sometimes I wonder how it would feel to be in someone else's shoes. Specifically, I've always wondered how it would feel to be a man!

One thing we have in common: giving long answers in surveys, hehehehe.

I have friends who answer surveys in 3-4 words, basta 1 row lang of text. Di ko talaga yun kaya. I always feel like there's something more I have to say - not a need to explain or defend my answers, pero basta. Hehehe :) And I love reading surveys pag mahaba ang sagot hehehe :)

Well, that's me, I tend to ramble whether I'm speaking or whether I'm just writing down my thoughts! We're the type of people who don't subscribe to the saying that "brevity is the soul of wit", dahil kahit na mahaba tayong sumagot, it doesn't mean that we aren't witty! Hahaha! =D
