You know a meme is really good when you Procrastinate it for over a week.
See, I’ve always found it somewhat easier to see myself in retrospect. To reflect on what I learned from the Past, creating a bridge of experience to the Present.
Then, it feels like I’ve achieved...Progress.
I ought to confess, last week I googled “7 P’s meme tag” to see if I could be motivated out of this procrastination slump. Apparently, the 7 P’s—like any meme I guess—are supposed to be a list of short definitions explaining how each word relates to me personally.
S’cuse me? Just one sentence?!
I love doing memes and all, but it's a Paradox that revels in screwing me over! I’m a blogger, which means I like to write…
...A LOT. Brevity is rather elusive in my world of words.
Ah, well. I never claimed to be one to follow the rules anyhow.
Erina, Rolando— You two are so Patient, thanks for the tag!
My 7 P’s
It’s ironic, almost to the point of embarrassment, how much this word (in the singular form) can scare the hell out of me. When I seek out passion, in myself and in others. When I deem it absolutely necessary to have. When I fiercely believe that life—without our driving passions to flood and magnificently blur the edges—would dull and empty.
Yeah, I find it’s pretty damn ironic when I define who I am by my passions, by being passionate.
Because ask me to define one passion?
I get antsy.
I find it difficult to name one because it feels as if I’d be excluding everything else I've a passion for. However, after looking back, I saw something that has stayed consistent all through the years. I saw how my passion for people connects everything I've ever been passionate about or for.
Passion is an emotion that should be present in all aspects of life. And for me, passion means being able to give. Whether it’s to my family and friends or to any endeavor I choose to undertake. To have a loving passion and compassion for the girl I was all those yesterdays.
For who I am, today. For the woman I will be, one day.
For all the people I am lucky enough to encounter.
Yikes, another tough word. It’s like asking, “What is the meaning of life, hm?” It’s always going to be something different for everyone. Yet we all need a purpose. We live purposefully because it gives our actions, choices…meaning.
So, what is mine?
It changes as I grow and develop. With that said, no matter how much I change, I am always the same person.
So, I think the most important purpose to have in life is being true to myself.
I am always in constant pursuit of the unknown.
I accept that I won’t always find answers. Actually, sometimes I prefer it that way. You know how they say people want what they can’t have. I pursue for a confirmation of my own experience.
I pursue because I’m afraid of missing out on what life has to offer me.

I'd also say girlfriend, but I’m single. I wonder, would it be sort of weird to say future girlfriend, then? Hm, yes. Oh, well. That's who I am...er, will be...for some guy. ;)
I really don’t treat it seriously enough. For as much as I attach an importance to time, I value people much more. In the blink of an eye, I can put everything on hold for the moment, a moment that can last anywhere from two minutes to 2 hours. Maybe this is an inherent tendency for procrastinators?
Either way, I never seem to have enough of it.
Like a turtle, but I don’t mind! Slow as they may be, turtles live long. ;)
See why it took me forever to finish this tag?
I like to think that by the time I got to my seventh P, I mastered my tendency to be verbose (hell yeah, did you see how I summed up my personality with only 2 words!). But truthfully, it probably has more to do with being laidback (read: lazy) than anything else...
Well anyhow, I couldn't choose 5 people, like I'm supposed to. But I figured since I already broke the one-sentence "rule" for this meme...what's another???
7 wasn't enough for me, I had to overachieve and
torment tag 8 people because my curiosity is sometimes so very demanding like that:
