Tumblr Tuesday: The Karlskaleidoscope

1. Who is karlskaleidoscope?

A dreamer, a writer, a long lost Kardashian sister, a unicorn believer and a girl who gets distracted easily. Also someone who loves food way too much and is too lazy to exercise, a graphic novel and video game geek and a lover of film cameras, lomos and Polaroid pictures.

2. What is your signature style? How would you define it?

Whatever fits my mood. I don’t really have a definite style, sometimes I’m a rocker, or more glam and some days I’m in sweatpants with no make up on.

3. Whose style do you admire?

Rooney Mara, Megan Fox, Olsen twins, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Khloe Kardashian, Selena Gomez and Katy Perry.

4. What is your guilty pleasure?

Fast food, thrift shops and online shops. I’m a sucker for nail polish and lipsticks as well.

5. What turns you off?

People who are arrogant, self-righteous, way proud, rude, backstabbers, superficial people and those who feel the need to put others down in order to better themselves. I also hate people who can’t seem to let certain things go and are just too bitter to be better.

6. What are the common misconceptions about you?

Jhona, Jamie, Gem, and the rest of “Kiefpeeps”

Yes, these were the other girls who joined me in supporting Kief with everything he does. We planned things, shared stories, and bought gifts for Kief. Like me, they never thought they’d do something like this for a basketball player…so that added up to the excitement of the experience! Haha we’re all laughing at ourselves for being hardcore fans and we’d always ask ourselves what made us do all these.

I met Gem and her sister, Marion, during the Adamson-Ateneo game (where they lost). It was also the day when I first met Kief, hihi. So yeah they approached me while I was waiting for him outside Araneta and we became friends after that. Jamie comes all the way from Nueva Ecija just to watch a game and I met her during the first championship game between FEU and Ateneo and we became friends after that too! Jhona, on the other hand, was the organizer of Kief’s birthday bash and since I was the one who designed the tarp, I needed to meet up with her to give her the file since the file size is to big for it to be sent over the internet. And we became friends ever since :>

I’ve also met other people who’re Kief’s fans too, and even though I didn’t really get to be very close to a lot of them, I consider them friends. They’re nice! :)


So…my fangirling over Kiefer Ravena didn’t actually stop there. UAAP made me meet a lot of awesome people, and that includes Karla Aguas. Read the whole story here. I thought I actually ended there, but she’s too adorable to not stalk know more about her! Incidentally, I think, I discovered her Tumblr account and followed her immediately. Then, I discovered her talent in writing and thought how perfect this woman is. So yeah Karla and Nico became one of my favorite couples ever since. But Karla following me here on Tumblr makes the whole Karla Aguas experience so fulfilling. Hihihihi so kilig :“>


This girl was talking to me here on Tumblr since 2010 but I never really thought I’d actually meet her in real life and be friends with her.We met in DLSU when I went there to research for my thesis and it didn’t stop there. We’d meet in Taft during our free times, especially when I am alone (I spend a lot of time alone last term because of my 6-hour break). She was my only hope because I didn’t have a lot of friends in school, and I’m so thankful that she’s willing to accompany me. Hahahaha. She was also my companion in my first ever UAAP game (DLSU-ADMU). I dragged her to the 1st anniversary of the Pinoy Parawhores and made her meet other Paramore fans since she wasn’t able to go last year. Uh, I actually miss her cuz the last time I saw her was when I was waiting for a bus in Taft on the way home (which was more than a month ago, sigh). I miss you, Bebegurl!

Ate Crae

Last, but not the least. So, summer meant OJT for me. It was Ate Crae who helped me get into Wedding Essentials Magazine. Honestly, I wanted to take my OJT there because I wanted to meet her. She followed me on Tumblr about a year ago, after mentioning her in this post. I remember how she messaged me about it and said "There should be more people like you.” Since then, I can’t remember any bad thing that she uttered. She’d always give me words of wisdom especially when I’m feeling down, and made me remember that there is a Great God out there for me. I felt how she was a real ate to me, despite the fact that we haven’t met each other at that time. She told me how she wanted to be an ate to others, since she’s the youngest in her family. So imagine my ecstasy when I finally met her for my OJT. It felt so awesome that we talked during our first meeting like we’ve known each other for years. I only worked there for less than a week but my attachment to their office felt like I was there for at least a month. I miss her like I’ve seen her several times already, I miss her like I’ve been with her a lot. But since there’s the internet, I still get to talk to her from time to time. Actually, we’ve been planning to meet since who-knows-when but it just won’t happen. So I promise myself to set a day next week when I can meet with her again, finally. I will forever be thankful to have met a wonderful person like her.

And…yeah. That ends my year-end post. Just sharing some of the many people I met and knew this year. I guess this is the year where I felt a lot of people come into my life. And I think it has a purpose, since I lost a big part of my life recently. Para medyo quits naman daw sabi ni God. :>

I’m looking forward to meeting a lot more people in 2012, and I think I’m sure about that since I’ll be working during the 2nd part of the year…hopefully. And, I also wish to see some more of my follower-friends here on Tumblr! Cheers to 2012, let’s all wish for it to be a good one for us, for our country, and for the whole world.

I don’t know why you’re telling me this, anon. Seriously. Well maybe we can say that she’s proud to be Nico’s girlfriend, but I think she’s more than that. As I can see, Karla is really nice and sweet, and that’s who she is. I know that I’m not really in the position to “defend” her because we don’t know each other personally, but I think this is the right thing to do. Can we just let her and Nico be happy? :)
