Hey there guys! The name is Nico. Let's see... Gemini. Aspiring Lawyer. Rusher. Filipino. Childish. Eccentric.
I’m gonna answer 2 questions again this time because of not posting yesterday.
Day 6: something you would like to change about yourself
One of the things I would definitely would want to change about me is my laziness. Once I have no motivation to do something, I will not do it no matter how important it is (this is the reason why I failed ACTBAS2). My dad would often tell me that my biggest enemy is myself. He says that I have all the potential in all the world but the only thing keeping all of this potential is myself. I guess it does make sense. I can do anything I want to, it’s just I am too lazy to do it.
Day 7: a show or a movie that has changed you, and how
Oh gosh, this is a hard one. There are so many options for me. I mean that’s the reason why I like watching movies or television series. It’s because when I do watch them, I am able to learn something from them and change my outlook in life. This is really embarrassing but I would choose the Digimon series. I mean the whole series was my childhood. Some would ask why I would choose Digimon from Pokemon. The reason behind it is that the characters of Digimon changes from season to season. And the great thing about it was that as the season changed, the cast and the story becomes more mature, thus helping me mature as well (As opposed to Pokemon where Ash is still the same and shows no sign of growing up). I watched Digimon from its’ first season to Digimon Frontier and it taught me a lot about friendship and letting go. I may no longer watch the latest season but Digimon will always have a special place in my heart.
I’d definitely change how humans needlessly destroy natural resources for stupid reasons. Sure we have to deplete it to survive, but we could always replace the things that we destroy….
I think my life would change significantly if my dream came true. That is because my dream is to live in another country. This of course would mean leaving friends and family behind. I think the reason behind this dream of mine is me wanting to start fresh. To be able to go a place wherein no one knows who I am. No expectations, no preconceived notions of who I am and how I’m supposed to act. A clean slate, that is my dream.
Day 2: something that’s illegal but you think it should be legal
Day 3: what you think your reason for being here is
I’m going to answer two questions today since I forgot to answer one yesterday…
1st question is easy to answer. Gay marriage and of course letting gay couples adopt. Yes, I am quite happy that there are some states in the US that already allow homosexual couples to get married and adopt their own children, however here in the Philippines; discrimination is still rampant. Even in my own family, they make fun of people who belong to the LGBTQ community, not knowing that I am a part of them. I really don’t see what the fuss is all about. People fall in love, regardless of gender, and would naturally want to start their own family. Why should it be illegal?
On the other hand, the 2nd question is more difficult to answer. I used to think that the answer to these kind of questions is something profound, like finding your other half, or making an impact on the world. However, as I grow older, the more I realize that the only reason why I am here is because I have to live. I have to make the most out of what I have and simply put, to live. (This is completely different from simply existing. I’ll let you decide what the differences are.)
Doing this challenge because it seemed interesting enough. Also I wanted to know if I’ll be able to accomplish it. :)
Hopes, dreams, and plans. They all seem similar to me, the only difference I can see is that plans tend to be more concrete. One thing that I’m pretty sure that they all have in common is that they’re all focused on the future.
If there’s one thing I am hoping and dreaming for the next 365 days, it’s to find something that I’m really good at. My entire life I’ve been looking for a talent wherein I can excel. All my life I have been mediocre at everything I’ve done. I want to know what makes me special or different from all the others.
As for my plans… I am planning to be reinstated. Yeah, I got my first failure in college. (Stupid accounting) However, I am not bitter nor disheartened, in fact this only made me more determined to get better grades. I definitely plan to bounce back from this failure and use it to my advantage.
And since it’s mandatory… Here’s a recent picture of me.
Not a close up but it’s pretty decent because I’m genuinely laughing… :)))
