I am what I am
Here’s a short introduction of myself…
I am a musician, a chemist, food safety officer, a son, a brother, a friend, an enemy, a lover, a hater, and most of all I am what I am…
Here are things you should know about me…
I am a musician
By definition a musician is one who composes, conducts, or performs music, especially instrumental music.
I might not fit on the first word (composes) but I can certainly do the rest…
I grew up in a Christian family (conservative ones), and I think my family background also contributed to my inclination to music. I first started as a Choir member in our church (this helped me understand the notes and my voice) then was later on introduced to notes and sheet musics by my two aunts who have studied music in a seminary. Then I attended vocational guitar lessons and this is where my passion for music really began…
Another influence, I believe, is my love for “The Corr’s” music, when I was only 12 I heard them play “Dreams” and that’s where I started to dream of playing the tin whistle (an Irish flute-like instrument similar to the recorder), unfortunately there are no music shops in the Philippines that sells the same. So I couldn’t do anything but just admire their music. When I came here in Dubai, an Irish friend gave me my first ever Tin Whistle and that’s where I started playing almost all intrumental stuff of “the Corr’s”
here’s a sample of my latest cover:my instrumental cover of joy of life
I am chemist & a food safety officer:
I graduated at Technological University of the Philippines - Visayas on August 2007 as BSET major in Chemistry. I considered Chemistry, as well as Physics, a nightmare when I was still in highschool, I don’t like those subjects…
you might ask “Why BS. Chem then?” It was not actually my choice but my option… We are less fortunate (mahirap lng hehehe) and got financial issues to afford sending me to study either Nursing or Law… Since TUP-V was not that expensive, I decided to follow the footsteps of my uncle who was also a Chemist…and by God’s grace, I graduated without any red marks on my grades…hehehe
A food safety officer on the other hand is a someone who looks after the food safety of the food served to certain customers… They deal with municipality issues and often answer to all complains with regards to food safety… They ensure that all food safety policies and other measures to eliminate or reduce risk (hazards) to an acceptable level are strictly followed… I am a food safety officer..My current work is far from the scope of what I’ve learned as a chemist but trainings as well as the experiences given to me by different organizations really helped a lot…
I am son & a brother:
I am the eldest among 5 and I grew up with my loving parents care and motivation. Together, my parents worked hard for me to achieve my dreams… I have four siblings and all of them are also musically inclined
Here’s a short post I made about us:
my siblings and our music
I am a friend & an enemy:
I can be your best friend but rest assured you’ll regret befriending me once you intentionally step on my line…
I don’t choose my friends because I know for a fact that friends do come and go (based on my experiences). I pity those who set “standards” in friendship because friendship is a matter of acceptance between two different people.
“A friend walks into your life when the rest of the world walks out”
Here are some of my friends both in the virtual world and in real life:
I am a lover & a hater:
I seem to have this belief that love comes with hate. if you try to trash my love down I’d generally hate you.
When I love, I love with all my heart unconditionally but when I hate, I hate with all of what’s left of me.
My experience on this field has taught me a lot, to always use your mind before unleashing your heart.
They say “Love is blind.” I say, “Love is never blind, it sees but it doesn’t mind.”
Here’s what happened to me recently:My heart break
People try to pull me down but I just smile because people only pull those who are on top…(crab mentality)
You may love or hate me for my attitude (of course I can never please everybody) you have all the right to do that…This is the real me, I don’t bend nor amend my attitude just to fit in somebody else’s standards. I am what I am…Iamjasher
“I am not a perfect blogger but show me at least one on this site…”
I am talking to my ex and I’m realizing a lot. It’s been months since we last talked. And to think that he initiated the conversation, because he was lonely (more like bored), he came talking to me. Nothing to celebrate about.
Besides me missing him, he is showing me that we are better off in our separate ways; that we are happy somehow. We talked and got caught up to each other’s lives. We’ve been friends on Facebook and seeing each other’s tweets but we still didn’t talk to each other.
When he asked me how was my life, I immediately spilled the tea on him like we never lost touch at all. He gave a few remarks about how my English got worse. Then things went on and on.
It was all natural like we were still best friends, excluding the fact that we were boyfriends first, best friends after, then exes last. Or I’d consider being strangers next, then now friends.
I won’t hide the fact that I miss him. I do. I miss us and the things we used to do. But I can’t go back and rewind everything again. That would be pretty useless. I am thankful we talked again and I wish we would get to do this more often.
Prom season is here again. Watching cotillion practices and seeing photos of the event really brings back memories.
I could say I had the best promenade celebration a guy like me could ask. I had my first dance with my girl best friend cause she was also the girl I really loved. I didn’t dance with anyone else until I was dancing with her. My partner was awesome. I never knew that I would be close to her but that event surely made it possible.
But the sad thing about my prom was that I wasn’t able to dance my
boy friend at that time. We were both too afraid of what people would say and of all the puns and jokes they would throw at us. Nonetheless, I was with him throughout the party. Some even saw us hugging in the dark.
Prom is definitely one of the few moments that I wish I could go back to and rewind everything.
