Tagged

So i've been tagged by Vanessa and Stephie...lol...so here goes! I've pasted the info.

The Rules: Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to then report this on their own blog with their 7 things as well as these rules. They then need to tag 7 others and list their names on their blog. They are also asked to leave a comment for each of the tagged, to let them know that they have been tagged and to read the blog.

So here goes:


1. In college I was president of the Filipino Student Association but also President of my sorority, and I was on the step team, an indian dance group and a reggae dance group. my sorority is actually a latina sorority, ppl get confused by that all the time...but those are often ppl who don't know about the spanish influence on the filipino culture :) plus, hasn't anyone heard of racial diversity!

2. I am allergic to animal dander...meaning for the most part, if it's got fur, i'm allergic....but i've had pet guinea pigs and rabbits growing up...i guess my parents thought less fur, less allergies!

3. I don't know how to speak a lick of Tagalog, I can't even really understand it except a few words...and my parents speak it all the time in front of me and my bro...i dunno what happened!

4. I'm best friends with my roomies...one I've known since 7 years old and we grew up BFF's in florida and even were roommates in the same college...my other is my sorority sister who lived with us in college. one is haitian and the other is colombian...my other bff is trinidadian, my BF is black/puerto-rican...everytime we go anywhere ppl think we're a posterChr for diversity :)

5. My fingers are double jointed...it freaks by BF out sometimes, lol.

6. My biggest turnoff is when I see ppl spit...it can be strangers, ppl I know, it's just gross!

7. My favorite disney movie is the Little Mermaid...I know all the songs by heart, even like 15 years later!

Here's the 7 I tagged: Stephie, Vanessa, Fei, Chic Makeup, Alienman, Christiana, and Divine Blackness

girl i am the exact same with you! i can hardly speak tagalog besides a few curse words, and basic words. it's so sad! and i HATE when people spit in front of me. it pisses me off and it's so gross/rude. lol anywho, there's a filipino student association over at my university but i don't want to join it since its mainly a partying group... a few of my older pinay friends told me their gpa went down because they kept partying with the fsa all the time... anyways, i want to join a sorority or business frat soon... any suggestions? thanks ate :D

hey stephie...i guess we're just like two peas in a pod! yah i guess FSA's differ per school...mine was kinda small but we did a lot of cultural stuff like tinikling performances and filipino potlucks, it was fun! but might not wanna join fsa if it drops your g.p.a, that would be unnecessary! in terms of joing a sorority or business frat...i noticed that whatever organization has the best ideals and whose members appear to be good members of the community, that's where you should join. i really like my sorority because we did a lot of programming about minority women and community service, it wasn't just about date parties like other sororities...after i graduated, i landed a lot of interviews just b/c i was prez of my sorority, and i learned so much...so just get out there, google some different organizations, and see where you fit best. i think fei is in a business frat...i'm not too familiar with those but you can ask her? my sorority's website is www.lambdalady.org, and there are a lot of pinays in it, good luck!

I don't speak the language at all either except for a few basic words here and there. I actually have "Learning Tagalog" on my iPod that I used to listen to in my attempt (emphasis on attempt) to learn, hah.

And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Little Mermaid!! I know just about every word in that movie. That is my all-time favorite Disney movie.
