How old were you when you had your first crush?
11 or 12, I think.
If you’re a girl, how old were you when you started your period?
12-ish? I remember I was one of the last ones in my class to have it.
What is your worst period story?
Maybe that one time when a friend had to rush me to the hospital? Yea, let’s go with that.
Does anyone else know who your first crush was besides you?
Maybe? I don’t know.
What was your most embarrassing moment?
I can’t think of one that stands out. Ask me again another time.
What are your worst cramps like?
Have you seen the film Ang Manananggal sa Unit 23B? There’s a scene in that movie in which the manananggal forgets to take her anti-transformation potion — or at least that’s what I think happens — then she starts screaming and writhing in pain as her body splits in half. That’s pretty accurate, man. That’s how I am when I’m suffering through intense period cramps.
What is the most physically painful thing you have ever experienced?
Period cramps? Chz.
What are you allergic to?
I’m not telling you, man.
Have you ever wanted to be someone else?
Sure. You know that one line from Shura’s song? I love it.
Have you ever been jealous of someone?
Have you ever been jealous of a friend?
Hmm, not really.
Do you feel shy around someone when you are first getting to know them?
Maybe? It depends, man.
Do you feel shy around a crush?
I feel shy in the same way that I feel shy around other people — does that make sense?
What color hair did your first crush have?
Do you ever cry in public unwillingly, or are you able to hold it in?
There had been times in the past when I was not able to hold it in.
Do you throw up involuntarily when you have to, or can you swallow it down?
I need to barf it out, man.
What’s one near-embarrassing moment you had?
Pfft, I dunno.
Do you ever call yourself stupid?
All the time.
What was the name of your first imaginary friend?
Sabrina? Sabina? Something like that.
What’s one weird habit you have?
Okay, I got one. You know how Skyflakes crackers are divided into smaller, uh, segments? Like if you look at one cracker, you will see two sets of dashed lines that neatly divide the cracker into three equal and smaller pieces? You see what I’m talking about?
Anyway, the weird habit is, I always, always have to break a cracker along those dashed lines, then break the 1/3 piece further in half before I put the 1/6 nub in my mouth. That’s how I eat Skyflakes. I don’t think I have ever taken a bite off of one cracker sheet and just held the rest of it in my hand. I think that is weird.
Are you more of an open or a private person?
Do you wish you could be more open with others?
Do you feel ashamed?
Do you get embarrassed easily?
I wouldn’t say that, no.
Do you have regrets?
Have you ever fallen asleep in class?
What was the hardest thing you’ve ever had to forgive?
Oof, I don’t know. Is it possible that I’m just not wired to care enough about anything? Forgive forgive — I just forget about everything.
Is there anyone you hate?
I hate the 1% and what they stand for, does that count?
Is there anything or anyone you’re angry at, that you haven’t forgiven yet?
Dude, are you okay?
List five of your biggest bullies.
Have you ever plotted revenge against someone?
Again, man, what for?
Have you ever done anything to get revenge against someone?
Nope. Hold on — do people really do this in real life? This sounds like some teleserye shit.
If so, do you regret it, and did you apologize later?
Have you ever had a friend crush (i.e., you really wanted to be their friend)?
Yes! I didn’t know this was a thing but, yeah, I’ve definitely had this before!
What is the greatest longing of your heart?
I long for a lot of things, man.
What was your childhood dream?
I remember wanting to be a teacher, a botanist, a doctor, etc.
Did you ever fulfill your childhood dream?
Hell to the no.
What is your dream now?
I don’t know. I need to think about this.
What is your passion?
Again, I don’t know. There are many things that I feel strongly about but, I don’t know. I’ll get back to you on this.
Are you living your dream?
Did you write love poems when you were younger?
I think so, yea.
Name a church that just wants money.
What is your least favorite chore?
Taking out the trash. Ugh!
Do you keep a diary?
I keep a blog.
What color is the diary you are currently using?
Uh, white and purple?
Do you actually write “Dear Diary”?
I used to when I was younger. Actually my previous diaries had names. I had a diary named Kitty long before I learned about Anne Frank, and I also once kept a diary addressed to my childhood crush Vic Zhou. Instead of writing “dear diary” I wrote “dear Vic” hehehe.
When was the last time you wrote and sent someone a letter?
I wrote a friend a letter a few weeks back.
Do you write in cursive or print more?
