Eetsie tagged me, so… . (Hi Eetsie!)

Here are the rules:

1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

1) What was I doing 10 years ago?
Ten years ago, I went to college for the first time. I was an FA Advertising major then.

2) What are five things on your to-do list for today?
1- Buy lunch
2- Eat while logged on to the internet
3- Shop for groceries
4- Drop by my tutee’s house at 5pm to get my salary
5- Begin sketching some studies for farewell cards

3) What snacks do I enjoy?
Chips, pastries, dried fish strips (dunno what they’re called), and instant noodles I think

4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire?
– I’d buy my own country
– I would plant trees, flowers, fruits and vegetables and other exotic herbs
– Then I’ll hire workers to tend my national hacienda and pay them handsomely for their hard work
– Likewise, I’m getting myself an insurance for all my assets
– And hopefully through this I’d be able to help eradicate poverty and food shortages. If not, then I’m building my All-Fresh-Ingredients-Only restaurant and open a few branches all over the world.

My cousin has finally graduated from HS. She’ll be leaving for the US soon to pursue a Creative Writing Degree I think. Then last night she and her class had a ‘punk-rock concert’ of sorts and, well, I thought it was pretty horrendous but my cousin did well. She’s quite a performer. We truly share the same genes.

I also get to meet and chat up with a couple of her teachers. Not about her, of course, but… my goodness, it’s so unusual… to chat about politics and life in PP… whew! That’s a first. I think. I mean, I didn’t know I had it in me to converse on a variety of topics without having to reserve my answers to a measly ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ and ‘I guess so’ and ‘I don’t know.’ My, how I’ve truly grown! I really like this other side of myself. It’s very refreshing.

Well, we’re nearly done with school and I am just desperate to get it over with. I really want to go home.

I’m so tired!

My Papa, who is my grandfather by the way, and not my dad, is back home again from the hospital I was told. His tumor is malignant. We’re hoping and praying for a miracle. We will appreciate your prayers.

A conversation with my cousin’s teacher last night really stuck in my head and I want to share it here with you (rephrased because I can’t remember the exact words used):

What has driven the likes of Hitler, Bin Laden, Pol Pot, and US Pres. Bush, etc. to bring so much destruction to their own people?

Paranoia?

I, too, would very much like to know.

  • i hope your grandfather gets well soon.

    …….
    maybe they’re driven (hitler, ect.) because they
    actually believe that they’re doing the “right” thing.
    (based on their beliefs anyway)

  • thanks for tagging me, my lovely sister! I’ll do it soon! 🙂

    it’s so funny that my grandpa is still weak and paralyzed too ‘coz of his brain stroke. I’ll pray for your grandpa (and of course my grandpa too). Much much love to you!

  • RJ,
    -Thanks, I appreciate it.
    -Yes, that may be true. But still, it remains a suspicion rather than a fact.

    MaLL
