I’ve been blogging for quite a while now but I haven’t gotten around in doing tags. I’ve been tagged a few times already but I never did any because I’m a little shy and still don’t have any idea on what to do. But seeing the Get to Know Me Tag posted by Jackie of toomuchofabooknerd and Shanah of Bionic Book Worm, I feel like it’s about time for me to finally take part in one. And what a better way to start than the tag that let’s you get to know more about the blogger behind Des’ Random Thoughts. So, shall we get to it? 😊
Nicknames: Des, Desi, and my cousins call me Eye (pronounced Ih-yeh) 🙂
Birthday: January 5
Star Sign: Capricorn
Occupation: None for now. I quit my job in the Philippines and move to France to be with my husband. 🙂
Hair color: Dark Brown
Hair length: A little past my shoulder
Eye Color: Dark Brown
Best Feature: I’d like to believe it’s my personality. 😁 I actually don’t know, maybe my eyes.
Piercings: Just on my ears, one each.
Right or Left: Right
Real Holiday: Nothing special. My parents can’t afford a holiday. But growing up, my siblings and I will spend the summer at my grandparents’ place near the beach. Fun times!
Best Friend: My very first best friend is a distant relative who’s a neighbor of my grandma. So, we pretty much spend each summer together when we were younger. We are the same age and practically grew up together. We still catch up once in a while but haven’t seen each other since she’s in Thailand now.
Award: Does beauty/popularity contest award counts? 😁
Sport: I am not really the sporty type but I used to play badminton.
Concert: It was Jimmy Cliff in a music festival. But my real first concert experience is Maroon 5. I totally love them!
TV Show(s): Oh, it’s so hard to choose. I love watching TV series with my husband. The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Orphan Black, Stranger Things, Sherlock, The OA, and so on.
Songs: There’s a lot! But She Will Be Loved by Maroon 5 and If I’m James Dean, You’re Audrey Hepburn by Sleeping With Sirens are my top pick.
Restaurant: As long as there’s food, I’m good.
Shop: Any bookstore! Nothing in particular when it comes to clothes or shoes.
Books: The Harry Potter Series, The Time Travelers Wife, and a whole lot more.
Book Genres: Young Adult, Women’s Fiction/Chick-Lit, Mystery & Thriller, General Fiction
Shoes: Used to love flipflops and flats when I was in the tropical country. Now, it’s always sneakers. Don’t like wearing heels.
Feeling: Tired and sleepy. Slept so late last night for reason unknown.
Single or Taken: Taken. Married for 2 years on the 18th of this month. ❤️
Thinking About: taking a nap!
Watching: Just finished watching The Middle. 😁
Wearing: PJ 😁
Want Children: Definitely! Hopefully soon.
Travel: Absolutely. It’s always been in my bucket list to travel the world.
Where You Want to Live: I actually want to go back to the Philippines and settled there. Good thing my husband and I are on the same page. 🙂
DO YOU BELIEVE IN:
God: Yes. I was raised as a Catholic, so, there…
Miracles: I guess.
Love at first sight: Nope. I believe it’s called attraction.
Ghosts: Maybe? I guess I’m Switzerland on this one.
Aliens: Same as ghosts.
Soul Mates: Hmmm. I think so. At least I believe my husband is my soul mate. 😄
Hell: Same as heaven.
Yourself: I used to doubt myself and was so insecure before. I’ve experienced enough drama to believe that. But as I grow older and music and books and people online has been my lifeline, I learned to leave the past behind and look forward at the future. Since then, life’s been great and I now have someone who believes in me completely and made me see what I am capable of.
So, there goes some information about me. I had fun doing it but I am not tagging anyone. Just feel free to do it whether you are a new blogger or not. Do send me a link of your post (even to those who’ve done the tag already) so I can check it out and get to know you, too. Have fun! 😊
