Ang aking lihim na buhay onlayn


Ako daw yung laging kulelat. Chronic latecomer at late bloomer.

Hindi lang sa pagpasok sa eskwela at opisina. Hindi lang sa pagdating sa mga sosyalan at mga miting. Hindi naman daw dramatic ang entrance ko, bagkus kiming-kimi. Mas puno daw ng embarrassment kaysa drama.

Kulelat din sa pagsunod sa mga bago at uso – sa pagbibihis, sa pagsasalita, sa pag-aayos ng bahay o sarili, sa teknolohiya.

Nuong kapanahunan ko, hindi ako nagsuot ng mini-skirt hanggang pawala na ito sa uso. Ngunit nang magamay ako dito, hindi ko na ito hinubad – nang 15 taon. Ako na yata ang pinakatalyadang buntis na naka-mini nuon. Nag-mini ako hanggang tatlong kabuntisan. Kaya’t inabutan ako ng ikalawang pagkabuhay ng mini nang naka-mini pa din.

Naalala nyo ba ang shoulder pads? Natagalan din bago ako nagsuot niyan, siempre. Aba, bagay pala sa akin. Lumalapad ang aking mga bagsak na balikat at lumiliit ang aking puson – siempre, ilusyon lang yong huli, pero yun daw ang mahalagang “total look.” Wala nang nagsusuot ng shoulder pads ngayon – bukod sa akin at, marahil, mga PMAer. Wala akong magagawa -- nagsumpaan na kami ng aking mga shoulder pads na hindi maglalayo – till death do us part.

Mahirap akong hindi makilala ng aking mga kaibigan kahit dekada na kaming hindi nagkikita. Kasi kung ano ang ayos ng buhok ko 30 taon na ang nakalilipas, eksaktong ganoon pa din ngayon. Pabilog ang gupit – apple cut ang tawag -- may bangs na nakalawit sa nuo, pinasabugan ng kaunting hair spray upang hindi magulo. Faithful ako sa aking "do" -- through thick and thinning hair.

Anna, guess who's back in the blogosphere? hahaha still remember me? I hope so!

I loved reading this post! I'm a big Scrabble and Literati geek too and now I'm wondering if we ever played before! I guess you were the one who beat me three times lol but nah...I'm never mean to other players.

So, how about now? Do you still play Scrabble online? I've been hooked on Facebook's Scrabble several months ago but I had to stop because it has become a health hazard hahaha

I miss reading your posts and I'm just glad your blog is still up in the cloud =D

Good day! I’m Keisha Halili, a senior Journalism student from UP Diliman. I’m currently working on my undergraduate thesis focusing on the textual analysis of the contents of Blog Watch which pertain to the articles written during the campaign period of the national elections. Part of my study includes focus interviews of the bloggers who wrote for the said period. These interviews will be the starting point of my research. In line with this, may I request an interview with you? Should you agree, I would oblige to any means of communication convenient to you (email, chat, phone, personal, etc.).

You may reach me through the following ways:
Cellphone – 09272255375
Email – keishahalili@gmail.com

I’m hoping for your quickest and most favorable response. Thank you!
