A non-makeup related, all about me blog

I reeeeeally hate getting sick! I can't take proper care of my daughter or do anything when I'm sick. I was at the nearby hospital's emergency room on Saturday because of a bad asthma attack. I seldom get attacks now, but stress can really get to me.

See I had to call an ambulance last week for my ailing grandfather, who's 84 years old. My parents weren't here so I was fully responsible for him, and I decided to bring him to the hospital around 1 AM, seemingly just in time. He was put into the intensive care unit. It was in a smallish hospital that I'd never been to, and our experience with their staff in the emergency room was just terrible, I was so angry but I had to keep myself in check. When I told my mom about it later on, she said 'Now you know the reality of how most Philippine hospitals are. Others are much much worse.' My lolo is still in the hospital now.

I had trouble sleeping when I got home, and many days after. My hubby left for a business trip that lasted nearly a week. I caught a nasty cold, which developed into a respiratory tract infection and the asthma attack. My cough sounds so awful and disgusting. Ugh. *End of rant. Hehe.

Sweet thiamere tagged me! Yay!

10 random things about me:

-My favorite TV series at the moment is Fringe. It's not fashion-related, or anything close to Gossip Girl (though I like that too). It's Fringe as in fringe science. Just awesome. I'm downloading all the episodes!

-I was allergic to shrimp and crab as a child, and eventually outgrew those allergies, but I still can't stand eating those two. All my family and friends love them and are always saying that it's no fun I won't eat them, so one time I forced myself to eat shrimp. And I threw up what I ate for the entire day! Eeew.

-I have a scar on my right eyebrow from a childhood accident. I've never attempted to mask it with makeup, but it's conveniently covered by my bangs or side-swept hair.

-I used to work at a call center for a well-known international bank, and we worked on eastern standard time, so my routine was kind of opposite for day and night. After work my co-workers and I would unwind by drinking and eating, so basically we were having beers when most people were having their breakfast!

-I named my daughter after Isabella, from Twilight. I got hooked on the Twilight saga during the early part of my pregnancy. I knew from the website that it had a solid fan base, but didn't guess that it'd be like a pop culture phenomenon when the movie would come out (still haven't seen the movie, haha)! We were decided on my daughter's first name but couldn't decide on her second name, so I chose Isabella.

-I haven't tasted any alcohol for about a year and a half. Ah, that sucks.

-Speaking of sucking...hehe, I'm still breastfeeding my nearly 9-month-old baby girl. Yay!

-I was 4 months pregnant on my wedding day and was worried that I'd faint during the ceremony. Haha. Thank goodness I didn't, everything went quite well.

-I've worn bangs nearly all my life 'cause I feel conscious of my wide forehead. But I grew them out last year 'cause it's so hot here and I was too lazy to style them. Above is a picture from college (about 3 years ago). So thin!

-I'm a crybaby! Whether I'm angry, sad, frustrated or watching a sappy movie, you won't have a hard time making me cry.

I tag anyone who has read all the way through here (thanks!) and would like to do this tag :) Had fun answering this one too :)
