While I was born in Edmonton, I was sent to the Philippines. Boom! My militaristic personality was shaped by my uncles, and my grandfather while my parents worked in Canada.
The movie Full Metal Jacket was nailed into my brain. Copying the Marines' training routine made me feel as tough as a rock.
Studying World war 2 and any other war in human history made me want to pursue all the knowledge I could get from the conflicts.
Dragon ball is my favorite anime. I tried to copy all of the main characters' powers, but to no avail. Dragon Ball made me feel I could do everything if I just tried.
My favorite videogame is one most would consider older than time. Modern Warfare 3 is my favorite game in the Call of Duty series. Watching my cousin playing it hours on end made me want to play it. So I have. I only play casually to get the muscles relaxed.
The show Gundam to me was the apple to my eye. I would die if I didn't watch this show regularly.
Named Ex Battalion, these Filipino rappers earned a special place in my heart. I have been listening to their music for a while for their catchy rhythm and how their general lyrics are based on relationships by real people.
I am a very religious man. Drawn by one of my best friends and my parents, I started to love the god I believe in after joining my family and friends in church. I feel happy in life because of what I get done through him.
McDonalds is what food stands for. From child to adolescent, I have been eating McDonalds food on an occasional basis. I had to force anyone to eat anything from McDonalds, it would be their Chicken nuggets, their french fries, and the infamous BigMac.
Located on the north side of Edmonton, Max's restaurant serves the best of what the Filipino culture has to offer, from the food staple rice, to the exotic egg rolls. Going in the first time, everyone was family to me.
The only other alternative to paintball I found interest in. I play a game called Speedsoft. If you go to Force on Force Tactical Training, you will occasionally see me there. While my sport may not click in with others of my age, this is the sport where I felt at home.
If going to an airsoft field isn't an option for me, I have plenty of alternatives. Commanding pieces of plastic is one of them. Growing up in a military family, my interests were pre-set for me.
I want to be an Electrical Engineer when I grow up. I've always been intrigued by man's discovery of electricity. The discovery leads me to wonder what our society would be like if Benjamin Franklin had not discovered electricity. Considering electricity is a need in the first world at this point, I wanted a job that could supply that need.
After I complete my education, I plan to travel around Europe. The first place I want to visit is Greece. I've been drawn by the amazing movie 300 starring Gerald Butler as King Leonidas the first and ancient Greece's polytheistic beliefs.
When I wake up for school, I think of my future job, which leads me to think of the things I want in life. Those things I want are what motivate me to work hard in school so I can find myself buying all that I want.
