I don’t have an “About” section on this site, and I always enjoy reading tag posts and watching tag videos, so I thought I’d add my first tag here. 🙂
Are you named after anyone?
Nope. Although, I do have a twin sister who is named Jackie, and according to my mother, they were considering naming the second twin to come out “Jackie Lou.” Would’ve been me… glad it didn’t happen!
With my womb-mate, Jackie.
When was the last time you cried?
Maybe several days ago? I think I cry pretty often…
Do you have any kids?
If you were another person, would you be a friend to yourself?
What an odd question. Would it sound conceited if I said yes? But would I sound pathetic if I said no? Err, I’m going to go with “yes.” I think I’m pretty easy to get along with.
Do you use sarcasm a lot?
I think I only use it around people that know me, because if it was someone who didn’t know me that well, they might think I wasn’t being sarcastic and just being nasty.
Would you ever bungee jump?
Maybe with another person? I’m afraid of heights…
What’s your favorite cereal?
It’s a tie between Honey Nut Cheerios and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I like sugar.
What’s the first thing you notice about another person?
Probably their body language.
What color are your eyes?
Scary movies or happy endings?
Scary movies! I don’t know too many people that like scary movies. I hate being scared, but for some reason I have this twisted, morbid curiosity.
Sizzling bacon (even though I try not to eat it anymore), vanilla, birthday cake, cookie dough, chocolate… basically anything sweet. And bacon.
Summer or winter?
If I was still living in Arizona, I’d say winter. But I’m back in New York now, so summer!
Sometimes I miss that dry heat.
Computer or television?
Computer. Kind of cheating, because I can watch TV on my computer.
Farthest you’ve ever been from home?
The Philippines. My first time there was when I was a toddler, with my paternal grandparents. Last time I was there was when I was about 10 or 11 years old. I’d like to take Jon there to meet the rest of my extended family.
That’s me in the black-and-white shoes.
Do you have special talents?
I’m an artist. I like to draw!

When were you born?
December 10th, 1986.
What are your hobbies?
Drawing, reading, writing, watching movies/television, taking photos, traveling, going for walks, trying new foods, shopping.
Do you have any pets?
I have a blue tabby named Misha.
What’s your favorite movie?
(Strangely enough, not a scary movie!) It’s hard to pick just one. I really loved Selena. I enjoyed it during my childhood, and I love her music. I could stumble upon that movie on TV and always stop to watch the rest of it. I also really love this Chinese film called To Live. It’s probably one of the most depressing movies I have ever seen, but it’s incredibly moving. It’s about hardship, fate, and optimism. Add them to your to-watch list if you haven’t seen them already!
Do you have any siblings?
I have a [fraternal] twin sister named Jackie and a younger sister named Christine.
Me on the right, in my ombré glory at Christine’s wedding.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I still don’t know! I want to continue to make art, but I am also considering a career in health care. So we shall see!
I tag anyone who would like to answer these questions themselves. 🙂
