Relic from an Artistic Past

When I was a child, my artistic abilities were above that of a regular kid. In elementary, I was getting high marks in the subject called MAPE (music, arts and PE) but I was always second best to this classmate of mine (who was also gay - artistry must run in the blood). But then, I was number one in all other subjects so what's let him has glory.

I made the drawing above when I was in grade 3 or 4. I used a box of pastel crayons that my brother brought me and I copied the girl in the cover of my very first photo album.

My mother put my drawing on the inside door of their closet and somehow it has survived almost 2 decades inside that closet door. Hmmm...

Provincial Business

Today is my parent's 39th wedding anniversary. So we (my older brother and sister) went home here in Quezon.

I generally do not like going back here for many reasons, among them is the boredom (there are not that many lights on the streets and the people in our house were asleep to total darkness by 9pm).

So to keep myself busy, I took advantage of the the full-time internet connection here. I was able to complete the download of the four albums of Libera, an album of Beyonce (all the single ladies! all the single ladies!) and some porn.

At least I get some personal time at home.

One of My Dogs

I really want to have dog but due to space constraints in my apartment, I have to settle for a toy dog.

I'd call him Terry (coming from a Boston terrier) but I don't know if he's supposed to be a Boston Terrier. So for now, he'll just be Dog (like Cat in Breakfast at Tiffany's).
