Inside Me
by Joyce Jimenez
(As told to Ricky Lo)

I am EMOTIONAL. I guess it's hereditary. I get emotional when I get hurt. When I'm angry, I express my emotion verbally. When I'm sad I express it by crying.

I am FAITHFUL. If my boyfriend is unfaithful, I speak up; I just don't keep quiet.

I am ROMANTIC. When someone goes out of his way to make me happy, my heart melts. Easily!

I am MOODY. Happy people around me keep me in a good, happy mood. Sad people around me make me sad.

I am a VORACIOUS EATER. I love food! I used to eat a lot but now I'm on a diet.

I am RELIGIOUS. I believe in the power of prayer. My favorite saint is St. Dominic. That's the name of one of the schools I went to in the U.S..

I am CREATIVE. I write poems and essays.

I am SENSITIVE. I get hurt easily. If I'm in a relationship, I am sensitive to what my family feels and thinks about the guy.

I am POSSESSIVE. Very! When I love somebody, I feel like I own him in someway -- and I expect the feeling to be mutual.

I am SECRETIVE.  In a way. Sometimes, I keep my feelings to myself. When I have a problem, I tend to keep it to myself; I'm not the type who would bother someone and ask for his/her help.

I am DARING. I had second thoughts and doubts --- about going bold at first and I still consider myself very daring for doing what I'm doing now.

I am AMBITIOUS. My immediate ambition is how to speak Tagalog fluently! Bigger ambitions? I have a lot, a lot! I also want to get a college degree and to be able to help my family. I want to bring my Mom to Europe on a grand vacation.

I am IGNORANT. I know I have a lot to learn as far as relationships are concerned.

I am too TRUSTING. It's not good, is it?

I am SUSPICIOUS, especially when some people give me a reason to be.

I am a DISORGANIZED person; I am messy! I am so busy that I hardly have time to fix my room. You can see a pair of pants here, a pair of shoes there, everything is everywhere!

I am an OPTIMIST. I look at the bright side of life -- at least I try to.


I am SOUR.

I am SWEET and SOUR at the same time!

I am COURAGEOUS. It takes a lot of courage for me to go bold.

I am STRONG, but maybe not emotionally. Mentally, yes, I am very strong.

I am REAL.

I am TRUE.

I am what I am. You have to take me for what I am.
