A little about me:
Sex: often mistaken as male, which doesn't bother me, but my smile gives it away that I'm female (=

A little more in depth, in case you have nothing better to do: (props to gotToluvAnime for pioneering the profile style)
I'm a very quiet person, and although I'm fine keeping to myself, I'm not anti-social. It just takes a while for me to warm up. I don't know why, but some people are often surprised when they hear my voice 'cuz they don't expect it to be softspoken. Some people also find they like me better when I'm quiet, not 'cuz I can't shut up, but 'cuz I can say some pretty harsh stuff, all in good humor though. On a more serious note, since I don't say much to begin with, I usually mean what I say when it finally comes out. I guess I don't waste my breath on bullshit. And unless we're joking around, if you don't have something nice to say, just keep it to yourself. That's just more BS I won't tolerate anymore. So that's me, silent but deadly, and full of surprises. It's always the quiet ones.
Surprises are fun though, especially ones of the spontaneous variety. Planning ahead scares me. I can't grasp the concept because who knows what may happen. I just like making the best of things as they come, so I'm very flexible when it comes to plans. I've found that a lot of the best moments in my life happened in the spur of the moment. It's quite liberating.
I guess you could say I'm overall optimistic, and I'd say I'm just pretty carefree. Don't confuse that with careless though. I just think worrying too much wastes energy. The way I see it, I'd rather not let something hold me down. I believe everything happens for a reason, whether you're aware of it or not, so just keep moving forward. Everything's okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end.
I'm very patient and I don't get angry easily. It takes a lot to push me to my limits. I can count on one hand how many people have managed to do that. God forgive them for me 'cuz I can't. You will know without a doubt if you're on my bad side. You don't even have to do something to me personally. If it's someone I really care about, I will make it personal. So yeah, there's a glimpse at my dark side.
My iPod is my pacemaker. I listen to music 24/7. I get so disoriented if I forget my iPod. The only type of music I just can't acquire an ear for is country music. Otherwise, it can be in any language (or no language, just instruments) and you'll find me rockin' out. I also like to break the music down into parts and try to hear every instrument. I mainly play two instruments: piano and guitar. I started playing the piano when I was three and the guitar when I was ten. I've tried the flute, but that didn't work. I can play a little ukulele, but not enough to be proud of. I would like to play some taiko drums though. That'd be sweet. And as part of my capoeira training, I can play the berimbau, atabaque, and pandeiro. "If music be the food of love, play on." - Shakespeare, Twelfth Night.
I'm left-handed. When I was younger, my babysitter tried to force me to use my right hand and my brain couldn't handle the confusion, so I tend to stutter a bit. It's gotten a lot better though. So if your kid shows lefty tendencies, leave them be! Besides, a lot of famous people are lefties! (= Lefty smile!
I also have the simian line (heart line and head line merged into one line going across the palm) on both of my hands. I was told that means I'll be rich and famous. I'm neither at the moment, but if you believe in palmistry, it might explain a lotta other things about me that I'm too lazy to get into. I don't particularly believe in palmistry, but it was interesting how it described me pretty accurately.
I love soda, especially Ramune and Coke. I can tell the difference between Coke and Pepsi, and I hate ordering a Coke and getting a Pepsi instead. If I was informed that a restaurant carried Pepsi products, I'd rather have Mountain Dew. I did like Pepsi Blue, but too bad it's discontinued. Otherwise, Coca Cola products all the way! By the way, Coke rum = more fun surprises!
I used to think I was Chinese 'cuz that's what people assumed when I was younger just 'cuz I'm Asian. I most likely do have some Chinese running through my veins, but I'm actually Filijaprazilian -- mostly Filipino by birth, but I've adopted some Japanese and Brazilian heritage for myself. Interesting ne? Yeah, I'm just making stuff up now. But really, I'm kinda mixed up. I really am mostly Filipino, and that alone has some Chinese and Spanish mixed in there somewhere, and my great grandfather was half American and half Cherokee, so do the math. But despite all the mix, I was born and raised in the USA.
I've only been "home" aka the Philippines once, and I was 3 years old, so I don't remember much except that I was hot and itchy. I've also been to France, Italy, Austria, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Japan, England, and Singapore, but not 'cuz I'm a military brat. My dad was in the Navy (he's retired now), but my mom, brother, and I stayed in one place while he was stationed around the world. I've only been to most of these places 'cuz my grandma loves to travel, so she takes me with her, or I go myself. I definitely want to go to Brazil.
I love foreign language. If I didn't go into fine arts or math (so stereotypically Asian), foreign language is next. I can understand Tagalog (Filipino) pretty fluently, but I can't speak it. I'll forget how to say something, but I'll know it when I hear it. The five years of Spanish I took in school were kind of a joke. I probably learned more in my one semester of Japanese. Then there's the Portuguese I have to learn for capoeira, so we'll see how well that goes. Foreign language is also one of my biggest turn-ons. Whisper sweet nothings in my ear in another language or throw in an accent and I melt.
I like watching commercials more than TV shows. Infomercials are fun too. Of course, not all commercials are great, but at least they don't last long. It's not that I have a short attention span. On the contrary, I don't get bored easily, and like I said before, I'm very patient. I don't know, I just like commercials. I don't watch many TV shows anyway. Of the TV shows I do watch, I like getting the box sets and watching a full season in one sitting. And I love movies, especially scary movies.
I hate being volunteered to do something, or just automatically assumed to do something. Unfortunately, I'm the type of person who has a hard time saying no, but just 'cuz you know I'll most likely do whatever it is you need me to do, I'd still appreciate being asked instead of just "Oh, yeah, (my name) will do it!" Furthermore, I hate when someone wants me to do something, but they ask like it's something I wanted to do or like I really had a choice. For example, "Hey, do you want to wash the dishes?" Who wants to wash dishes? Who looks forward to washing dishes like it's a pastime? Then when I say no, I end up washing the dishes anyway. "Hey, you want to...?" No, I don't want to, but if you just asked in the first place, I'll be more inclined to be less resentful.
As a result, I tend to be a doormat. It'll annoy me at first, but then I won't care. I can shrug things off like that. It's my blessing and my curse being able to get over things quickly. With few exceptions. Sooner or later I may snap though, and someone may end up on my bad side.
One more thing: I have a desk, but it's primarily used as a place for me to just throw stuff on. As gotToluvAnime and I have concluded, there's no such word as trash. It could be put to good use one day. So yeah, I'm usually on my bed when I'm on my laptop, and if we're chatting and suddenly I stop talking or don't reply, please forgive me. I'm not ignoring you, it's just that I've fallen asleep. It's not that you're boring, it's just late, and I'm in the comfort of my bed, so yeah... (-_-) zzzzzzzz... I fall asleep in front of my laptop pretty much every night.
So that was fun. I hope it was informative. It either intrigued you or scared you away or put you to sleep. Maybe all of the above, or none of the above. I guess I should work on my fics now.
