thanks to the one who started this! it's great to know more about you guys. :)


a few facts about me: 


1. Are you named after anyone?


my paternal grandfather. we have the same first and last name.


when he was laid to rest, it was weird hearing the priest  say his name (our name) during the service. this was how it would probably sound like when my time comes. what's even more weird is seeing the same name on the grave marker. good thing we have different middle names. still...


2. When was the last time you cried?


a few weeks ago, i think. i suddenly missed my Mom - gone six years by October this year. 


3. Do you have kids? 


none but i sort of "adopted" my sister's kid when he was six. now he's 12. 


4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?




5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?


not aloud. only in my deepest, darkest thoughts...


6. Will you ever bungee-jump?


oh yeah! it's in my bucket list. i have no fear of heights so that would be no problem with me. i've done zip lines so many times, i'm getting bored.
