Hi. The name’s Cyril and I’m a Gemini (obviously). I live in the Philippines, somewhere very close to the Metro.
I took International Studies major in European Studies in college. I might pursue a Master’s degree someday or Law. I don’t really have a very clear idea of what I really want to be or do in the future but I try to make some sense of direction in my life. I used to work at the German Cultural Centre (Goethe-Institut Philippinen), where I also had my internship for university. Oh, and I am familiar with Francais (French) since it’s part of my degree programme. But since I worked at the German Cultural Centre, I’m now also learning Deutsch (German). I’m planning to take Spanish or Italian next.
I love European culture. I love art. I love to learn different languages. I love travelling and landscapes. Nature amazes me. I’m an environmentalist in my own way. As for my political views, I don’t really feel like categorizing myself. I’m very open to any point of view from different people, even regarding religion. I hate racism and discrimination. I respect tradition but I hate it when it becomes a hindrance to progress and development. When it comes to food, I like almost everything. But I find it difficult to try something that is very very new to me. I love strawberries and mangoes. I love books, a lot! I want to actually have my own library as big as however I can manage. Haha. I also like photography. I used to have formal dance lessons but I quit because I hated the people there. But I’m dancing again in our studio as a form of exercise and hobby.
I often have a lot on my mind and so sometimes ideas just slip through me. I prefer to approach things in the most practical and realistic sense but I also can become idealistic and think beyond what reality can offer. I can also be sarcastic, especially when I’m getting annoyed at people. I’ve had lapses of an identity crisis here and there. I prefer to be unlabeled since I believe that labeling is a means to uninvited criticism and sometimes discrimination. Thus, I really don’t care anymore about my sexuality as much as I used to. I’ve accepted that I like girls (especially when they smile) and I’m attracted to boys as well. And yes, I have my insecurities about myself and my body. When I like someone, I usually end up not being able to say it and think that it would never work out anyway.
I also tend to kind of change personalities sometimes - ok, so most of the times. The zodiac sign may have an influence. But yeah, one minute I’m happy-go-lucky and the next I’m frustrated about whatever. So if you find me in a corner or in my room, reading a book or doing whatever, just let me be, after a while I’ll change my mind and we’ll get along well. That’s who I am. Oh, and when I talk and I feel great, I usually talk a lot. But I’m also a good listener. My friends often come to me to hear out their problems or stories.
So there you go. That’s me. I’m a very normal person. Haha. Anyway, if you want to ask me anything, go ahead and ask. I’d love to hear from you guys.
And if you follow me, I might just as well follow you if I like your blog.. :))
Bien. A plus!
