Post this on your profile, replacing my answers with yours.

Tag 25 people (including me) to do the same thing.

If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you.


1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE:
-- yes. olivia hussey, the star of the 1968 film ROMEO AND JULIET directed by franco zeffirelli. she was romeo. charot! siyempre juliet. my mum loved her. hm, kaya siguro cinematic ang life ko hehe...

sayang lang na hussey didn't make such a dent after that juliet role. the only memorable role yata she had after that was being norman bates' mother in one of the chipipay PSYCHO sequels.

hey, at least i wasn't named after pink floyd, right? i actually met a boy named that. his brother is named van halen. i am not making this up. inaanak ng nanay ko si van halen. kuya nila si led zeppelin. rakista ang tatay nila noon.

the stupid scene from ROMEO AND JULIET,
where juliet exclaims "bakit ka nagpakamatay?
hintayin mo ako, magpapakamatay na rin ako!" chenelyn.

lesson: love is stupid. puppy love lalo na.
13 at 14 lang si romeo at juliet sa original
shakespeare play, di ba? tang-a!




2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
-- i think 2 weeks ago. i was enjoying my new ipod for the first time, and for the first time this year, i slept alone sa haus, so that moment had me having moments while emoting with music, so ewan kung bakit ako naluha lang. nothing serious, though.


3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
-- my friends used to say i have my own font when writing. i happen to believe them.

when i was in high school, i hated my handwriting. my madre of a teacher one day grabbed one of the compositions submitted to her, and waved the white pad saying we shouldn't write like chicken scratch or something. at ang tumataginting na ehemplo niya ay ang papel ko.

die, madre! (yes, i hate penguins.) since then, i thought my handwriting was shit.

when i was in college, my spanish 1 teacher changed all this. at 7.20am in the morning (7-8.30a ang class ko), she waved one of the yellow pads and exclaimed that as language students, our handwriting should always be neat and legible chenes, and quickly pointed to my paper and said "like senorita cantor, who has neat handwriting" sabay smile. kasi that time, gamit ko na ang point 1 techpen sa pagsusulat at kahit pangit ang sulat mo, neat siyang tignan when using this.

ole!
