About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live to love, love to live.

ABOUT ME

a unifying mix of oxymorons, dichotomies, duplicities, paradoxes. a.k.a. the flying bottle, discreet damsel in d-elight; grew up exposed to different cultures and people through membership in an international organization and loved it. soul diver girl. born vegetarian. primarily an INFP.

some random thoughts/quirks (i'm/i/also):
-would rather be angsty than 'cool' if i had to be a little too much of either
-have been thinking it would be nice to be sharing dark, twisted things about ourselves like we do for small talk and not get freaked out by them.
-accepted that my name, diet and how young or tiny i look may seem to be a conversation degenerative till i get old; am tempted to say different stories to everyone for the fun of it
-get weak (towards paralyzing, not the sexy kind) around really girly girly women too composed or feminine
-thrive in the abnormal, different, unusual, eccentric sometimes for the sake of it, more often hopefully for individualistic reasons
-don't enjoy politics, gossip, pettiness (except as humor and not that am just so high minded all the time) or too much intellectualism
-have sort of anti-navigational skills
-have a sensitive, brooding, maybe psychologically-labeled private side known only to my closest friends
-new-agey, spaced-out, rational, spiritual in my own way and yet can also be a hypocrite (o:

PHILOSOPHY

where to start. it's forever unfolding and always the same; the truth (is) always paradoxical. mostly just a fan of philosophies that can stand the test of time, space and person--somewhere around the universalist, neo-humanist, possibly like Dr. Seuss who tells us to "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." :)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

spreading the s visit in manila. the local community has grown ever since, which was great, but it became harder to get to know everyone the same.

Interests

personal growth, creativity and creative expression, everything odd, dark, light and wonderful, people, psychology, individuality, sexuality, sports, nature, MUSIC!, art, culture, cultural heritage, science(s), philosophy, internet, technology, business, vegetarian lifestyles, food, enlightened societies, freedom, spirituality, playing the drums, astrology, digital photography

Music, Movies & Books

LOTS. on music: rock, jazz and most everything else (see also www.last.fm/user/padme001) but lately mostly solo piano and classical music.

movies & books: love mostly those that move and inspire you, make you think or those artfully unique.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

simple things from living with aeta tribes in their huts/home in the mountains without bathrooms, water or electricity for 4days 3nights; or scary amazing moments of survival from earthquakes to a heart operation and technically dying, to just awfully blissful meditation... and then it's all just about perspective..

Teach, Learn, Share

teach: playing the drums, yoga before it was 'cool', intermediate astrology, numerology, going veg, Tagalog, free software or IT for personal, business/non-profit use, outsourcing in the Phils.

learn: anything you're passionate about. Looking to take tai-chi and martial arts classes after post-grad (2013) (o: oh, and i do want to learn to play the bass guitar.

share: Desire everything, need nothing.

Let the ideal give form and the real give life to your search for truth and mission to realize and accomplish your purpose. <3
