Describing myself was actually harder than I thought. I swear I wasn’t able think of the right words to fill in the About Me page. I realized that I’ve been wrecking my brain for quite some time but I still failed to write down even a single word. I’ve then decided to stop and rest for a while. Inspiration will pay a visit when you least expected it. I only needed to be patient and wait for the right time to come.
And that moment finally came. I was in the office; I was preparing my month end report, when suddenly an unforeseen idea popped up in front of me. A little yellow light bulb appeared! Was that Pikachu? Wow! I finally caught myself a Pokemon! Hahaha!
On a serious note, I remembered an instance where I hurt my hand in school. It was right after signing on my classmate’s autograph notebook. Anyhow, a slumbook is a colorful book where you are asked to answer personal questions about yourself.
And that gave me an idea.
I thought, why not do the same thing here?
I’ve then decided to create a slumbook about myself. I’ve requested my friends to provide me a list of frequently asked questions that they could think of; and I will try my hardest to respond to each and every point with all honesty. LOL!
Below are the top questions they wanted me to post:

There are quite a number of films that I enjoy watching… but I’ve always loved The Notebook and Ever After (a Cinderella Story) flicks.

What is the most important part of your life?
What is your dream?
Que sera sera. Shhh… it is a top-secret information.

To love more.
What made you decide to write blogs?
 I just so love writing… so whenever I am free you will find me in deep thought with a phone on my hand doing my favorite thing!
 I am a straightforward person, it is better for me to convey my thoughts and feelings through pen and paper. With a mouth and an expressive face like mine… tsk, tsk, tsk! Big problem my friend! LOL! Did you know that I have finished the masters course of BA Misinterpretation? I could teach you the whole course even with both eyes closed! Hahaha!
 Let us be serious now, writing is my therapy, my refuge, and my antidote. You may also refer to this link: Why I Write Blogs.
 My late husband’s wish was for me to compose poems, and write short stories again. And this blog is the fulfillment of his dream.
 I would like to share the lessons I learned from my [others’] experiences. I hope people can pick up something from those articles.
This blog site is for my one true love, Papa Ian O’Neil Morales!
I will always love you my sweetheart and that will never change. You may be gone in this world, but you are forever a part of my being.
Thank you for visiting my page.
Please feel free to browse.
Hugs and Kisses!
To God be the Glory
