Memoirs 8

I was tagged by the lovely, sexy, svelte, demure and beautiful Nona, and here it is my memes.

The Rules:

Each person posts the rules before their list, then list 8 things about themselves. At the end of the post, that person tags and links to 8 other people; visits said people's sites and comments letting them know that they have been tagged; and to come read the posts, so they know what they have to do.

Here goes:

Click picture to enlarge.

1. I was the last to be born. I am not spoiled, contrary to belief that the youngest are always pampered.


2. At age 13 my eyesight began to fail. I had a hard time reading the board, and I was forced to wear eyeglasses.


3. I love to draw, but have not pursued art as my career having been discouraged by my mother that I'll starve if I do so. I took something else, but I'm starving just the same.
4. I was 9 or 10 years old when I had pneumonia and I was sick for a long time. On the way to recovery, my knees were so weak I had to learn how to walk all over again. I laughed each time I fall. When I got better, my brother taught me how to ride a bike (click here for me and my bike) and roller skate. (Sniff...sniff...brother passed on 5 years ago.)

5. I am not a morning person. I hate waking up early; in fact I don't remember my mom waking me up when I was little. I guess that's where she spoiled me.

6. Some of my dreams are scary. Some of them would come true, and at times it would be about someone passing on. In one of my dreams I would be sitting at a chapel at a wake, and a week later someone I know would die. Then I'd go to the wake and I'd be sitting there in the chapel--exact same spot in my dream.

7. I am a very private person, hence there's nothing in my profile. As of now, however, I've bared myself to all...somewhat. LOL

8. It takes a while for me to make friends. I'm just too shy, I guess.

Now I'm free. Since most of the bloggers I know have been tagged already, I'll leave it up to anyone who passes by to write his/her own 8 memes, or 10, or 12. You can write as many as you want, the more the better. Paramihan at pahabaan. LOL

As for the rules, it would be up to the writer to tag or not to tag.

Let the memes begin?

sasha said...

Same age tayo nag-fail ang eyesight, Mari. Reason sa akin is because I read books kahit nasa dilim ako. Kasi pagagalitan ako ng parents kapag nalaman nagpuyat eh page turner yung binabasa ko, ayun tyaga sa konting liwanag. Sira ang mata hehehe

Pansin ko nga very private ka. Parang si Nona rin hehe, except si Nona pakita na ng pics nya :)

Happy Tuesday! :)

ann said...

We have many things in common except yung talent mo sa drawing...hehehe. I'm not a morning person too , my friends knew this kaya sa boarding house noon I was never assigned to cook breakfast. Puyatin mo na ako wag lang gisingin early in the morning. Kaya lang ngayong mom na I have no choice kailangan eh.

Mari said...

vicki,
I have to do the meme, as per Nona's command. LOL
Yung pic ko ay saka na muna...pagmerong camerang pagagandahin ako, at pa se-seksihin. LOL

Salamat sa comments mo. Ingat.

Mari said...

nini,
Will do, amiga, once I get tagged again.

Thanks.

Mari said...

sasha,
Same reason din ako...basa ng basa, anything--comics, magazines, novels (books) at kahit madilim na.

Ngayon di na naalis itong salamin ko. For years I was wearing contacts, but now I'm back to glasses.

Mari said...

ann,
Meron ka ring talent na wala ako...sa pagluluto. Tama yung kahit mapuyat ako, basta huwag lang gigising sa umagang umaga. Yeah, being a mom we have to be up and about in the morning, esp. when they have to go to school.

Thanks for your visit.

sasha,
Thanks for visiting.

Pepe said...

razzy said...

We have a lot in common pala. I was the last to be born din, i have 3bros, and i'm not spoiled either.heheh.
well, i'm eyesight still good, hindi na nga lang perfect vision. i love to draw din, nun bata ako, hindi nga lang natuloy.. gusto ko nga sana fine arts ayaw din nila nanay.
at higit sa lahat, hindi rin ako morning person...magpuyatan tayo, pero maaga gigising, forget it..hehehe
Buti nakarecover ka sa pneumonia mo, tara bike tayo..hehehhee

nona said...

Thanks for doing the meme mari, and thanks again *bow* sa intro about me, hehe...how I wish ganoon nga ako.
same here, fine arts was my first choice...same reason as what the opposition party told me lol. and besides hindi raw career ang art but more on a hobby...well?

Gladys said...

Ganda ng drawing. How I wish I have the talent..that's one of my frustration..kaso wala eh :-D.

Salamat po for sharing!

Ebb Tide said...

Like your illustrations Mari. Puwede nang mag-start nang comics or kids-book business. Sorry, I am a private person too. Can't bare my personal life in someone's blog.

Mari said...

pepe,
Buti naman at merong kang nakuha...extra $$$ sa bulsa.

tina,
Same old tune gets boring, I'm spicing it up with something else.

Take care.

Mari said...

Di bale nasa linya naman ng art kunti ang career mo.

Thanks for the visit.

Mari said...

gladys,
Perhaps you have a talent of some kind also.

Thanks for your nice comment.

Mari said...

ebb tide,
I have to be a good story teller to do children's or comics book, but darn it, I'm not. :-( Good money maker, though.

Thanks for your visit.

ev said...

wonderful drawings mari!wow!!what a great talent..congrats!

hmmm..pareho pala tayo hirap gumising ng maaga..but i am trying this time..hhehehe!

Mari said...

vicki,
Siyempre nga pag sa bahay, komportable at nakataas ang paa, hindi sa ibang lugar. Ganoon din ako, sa sofa taas ang paa.

Sige, tignan ko kung papano mo niluto ang isda. Masarap siguro.

Back to school na rin ang mga taga ritong mga bata, kaya maraming sale na school supplies. Bumibili naman ako para ipadala sa Pinas, kasi murang mura.

Thanks for your visit...and have a good week ahead.

Mari said...

ev,
Thank you. I haven't done much drawing for a while. I've been brushing up on it, esp. figures (people), they are a challenge to me.

Thanks once again for your nice comment.

kneeko said...

payatot... daan lan ako.. hihiram sana ng bike mo hehe

Mari said...

kneeko, katuwa ka. Sige pahiram ko sa iyo at ako'y aalis...babalikan kong muli yung pinasyalan ko nung araw.

Thanks for your visit. Help yourself with the food in the fridge. LOL

Glenda said...

Hi Mari,

Ganda talaga ng drawings mo. Peru kahit di ako marunong nyan may mga habit tayo na magkapareho. Naka eyeglass din.

Anyway, thank's you for sharing.

Pepe said...

Hello Mari....! Wala pa akong masabi about the eyesight yet he-he....! My bionic-eyes are still working perfectly well ha-ha....! I like your drawings pala, you have a very good imagination.... Enjoy the weekend Mari....! =D

JMom said...

Oh I love the drawings you did for this meme!

Mari said...

glenda,
My first attempt at this kind of drawing, and, I think, I did well.

Pareho pala tayong naka eyeglasses. I used to wear contacts, but after a while, I didn't want to put up with it anymore.

Thanks for your nice comment

Mari said...

jmom,
A little bit of twisting to make it somewhat out of the ordinary. My first attempt at comic-like illustration. LOL

Thanks for your nice comment.
