I stumbled upon this blog post by Camie and the questions really made me think, so I thought it might be fun to try answering them. It’s also a great way to get to know each other, don’t you think?
Okay, let’s do this!
1. Are you sunrise, daylight, twilight, or night? Please share why you picked your time of day?
I would definitely choose night. I was never a morning person and I can barely stay awake when the sun is up. But during the night, I feel most productive and energetic. There’s just something wonderful about generating your deepest thoughts and brightest ideas during these times. But I guess that’s just me.
2. What is one goal you’d like to accomplish in your lifetime?
Surprisingly, it doesn’t have anything to do with my career or whatever. It’s not even the most ambitious goal. But one thing I would like to experience in my lifetime is to perform in a musical. It doesn’t matter what role. I fell in love with the stage as a child and I never had a chance to go back since then. I’d like to do it again.
3. If you could meet any historical figure, who would you choose and why?
I really thought long and hard about my answer, but then I realized that the people I’m really interested in are not prominent historical figures at all. Actually, the ones I’d most like to meet are my ancestors, especially my maternal grandfather (who fought in the Second World War) and my paternal great-grandfather (who fled to the Philippines to escape his life of poverty in China). It fascinates me how my family is a family of survivors, so I would love to hear stories about their struggles and life experiences, as well as lessons that they can impart on me.
4. You’ve discovered a time machine. Where and when would you travel to?
There are lots of places that I want to see, but maybe I would travel to pre-WW2 Philippines, when Manila still looked good and had great potential for progressiveness. Besides, I am very interested to see and experience how people back then lived their lives.
5. If your life had a slogan, what would it say?
“Every second counts.” I don’t like wasting time, especially if I know that I could be using it to do something more productive. The sooner that I finish it, the more time I have in my hands to share with the people most important to me.
I hope you guys enjoy knowing more about me through my answers and please feel free to do this as well! You can answer in the comments too or you can post it in your own blog! And since the questions are from Camie, just link her original post 🙂
