Potato Peeling *About Me*

* June 3, 2009*

My love for reading and writing must have evolved through a series of experiences I can truly consider as very memorable. At around 3 years old, Yaya Paping (our Yaya since I was born) would tell me bedtime stories. She would read to me different Tagalog legends such as “Ang Alamat ng Lansones,” “Alamat ng Buwaya,” and the like. During those days, all I wanted was to learn more about the tales that ought to be known along with my vivid imagination as a kid then.

Up to date, my collection of Filipino legends are still in my bookshelf. But through time, more books were added. Hence, I have developed my love for reading.

As years passed, my titos would also tell me tales. This time, they would dwell on famous international children’s tales or even those that they’d make up for me to listen to. I can remember the tales of Habana and Iksina (as told by Tito Teody Valdez) — that about girls with short and long hair.

Tito Vic Villacorte would also narrate to me fairy tales, just as Tito Bong de Lima did. Meanwhile, Tito Tony Francisco would perform his so-called “magic.” He has the magic powder (in the form of baby powder) and when I close my eyes, there a magical present comes! My gifts would sometimes be in the form of a Chocolate Crunchies, Pringles, etc. At that time, I get to receive such every 15th and 25th of the month. Now, as I have come to realize the implications of my experiences, I have thought that most likely, he was giving me during those days when he acquires his salary. 🙂

Throughout the times, I have felt how it was like to interact with adults of around 20+ then. Hence, probably, as times went through, I really treasure how being with my adult titos was, as well as how Yaya’s tales influenced my love for the crafts (reading and writing).

I’ve just taken a quiz from Signal Patterns, and I’ve discovered the potential vocations for me.. If you’re interested in taking the same quiz, visit http://www.signalpatternslabs.com/.

I am more into an Erudite Occupation — which means:

The key features of erudite occupations are the attainment and dissemination of information through written and spoken word. Such occupations typically require considerable time and effort, in the form of reading and writing, in order to become sufficiently fluent on a particular subject. Erudite careers involve producing, translating, or editing written work, and people with a preference for such careers tend be interested in careers as a writer, journalist, translator, librarian, English professor, or editor.

Next to such, according to the quiz, will be about taking up altruistic occupations.

The key characteristics of altruistic occupations include working with, treating, and helping other people. Such careers may have an informational component, such as teaching young people and parents, a purely charitable component, such as working at a not for profit agency for the ill, homeless, and aging, a counseling component, such as working as a psychotherapist, social worker, and religious or guidance counselor, or a treatment component, such as working as a nurse, physical therapist, or medical doctor. People who report preferences for altruistic occupations are generally interested in jobs at primary and secondary schools, the church, hospitals, and health care institutions.

Third on the list is on being in line with creative occupations, which states:

The central features of creative occupations include curiosity, imagination, and the expression of new ideas. The careers in this domain usually have a creation element, such as producing new designs for a building, writing a piece of music, or designing a new fashion, or an element of expression, such as performing in a play, playing a musical instrument, or dancing. In general, people with a preference for creative occupations are interested in careers in the arts and entertainment industries, as well as architectural and design firms.

Well, basically, I love potatoes – mashed potatoes to be more specific. Soft, easy to chew… Whether fried, baked, or placed on a soup, potatoes soothe my craving for a delicious meal. I am Celine… Besides my love for potatoes, well, for starters, I consider myself as simple. Simple in a sense that I find happiness in the littlest things around me. I love to smile at the simplest jokes. Though we’re not that well-of, I feel that I am still lucky. Sure, I still know that in a way, I lack some things, but on top of it all… hey, I really am lucky!

Now, who really is Celine? Hmm… For starters, I’d surely describe myself as simple — simple in the sense that I find happiness in the littlest things around me. I love to learn interesting facts and devise means on how to be more creative. Thus, I enjoy gathering ideas and putting up significant projects to work on for the rest of my leisure time.

Having studied nursing, I have therefore learned the basic nursing facts and skills. <to be continued…>
