Would you rather be rich or famous? Why?
Fame could only get you so far in life, and these days it’s easier to become infamous more than anything. I think this generation, being more focused on the self, is becoming a generation of famewhores and social media lurkers. It’s hard but, yeah every generation has their thing.
On the other hand, money can buy you almost anything, literally any thing, and if you choose the right “things” to buy, maybe you’ll eventually get closer to those intangibles that they say money couldn’t buy. Close enough, not quite, not exactly, but close enough. Very close enough.
What was your favourite game when you were a kid?
I don’t remember specific games I had loved to play when I was young. I guess over time you get to have those memories overwritten by something else, but I digress.
I do remember at some point playing Langit/Lupa as a kid. It’s kind of a different take on playing tag, everyone who wasn’t it had a some sort of shield by getting up on anything that was not ground level (Langit). I don’t remember much of the mechanics, maybe I’d have to google that later, but the gist is that you can’t be tagged if you were on a Langit, only when you’re on ground level (Lupa). The person who was it had certain powers/commands he can call, because if it was that simple, then it wouldn’t be that much fun. The compound that we played in had ledges on each of the front doors, so most of the Langit was those ledges. Sometimes we had tricycles parked inside which worked the same way, apart from the benches that we used as well.
What could you do to improve your life?
Work out more. Write more. Sleep more.
If you had to lose one of your senses, what would you choose? Why?
If I had to choose to lose one, I’d rather go blind. I think it’s easier to sleep that way. And I need sleep.
What do you do when you’re home.
Get into my skivvies around the house and eat and watch tv and sleep. I am really more of a homebody, I guess that does come with age.
What is the furthest you have traveled?
Just within the country. I have never been overseas, as old as I am. I know a lot more people half my age who are more traveled than I am. I am not too keen on travel, most of the trips I have been in, I was only invited to come. So there. Again, homebody.
If you could be a cookie what kind of cookie would you be?
Definitely some kind of chocolate chip, or chocolate. None of that oatmeal shit. Haha.
