I clicked on this link about 2 years ago on this test thing that said the kind of person you are. I wasn't expecting much on the results of it, but this indeed surprised me. The descriptions are 90% accurate.

My persona you say? read away..

Your view on yourself:
You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties. 

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:
You are not looking merely for a girl/boyfriend - you are looking for your life partner. Perhaps you should be more open-minded about who you spend time with. The person you are looking for might hide their charm under their exterior. 

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:
You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person. 

The seriousness of your love:
You are very serious about relationships and aren't interested in wasting time with people you don't really like. If you meet the right person, you will fall deeply and beautifully in love. 

Your views on education:
Education is very important in life. You want to study hard and learn as much as you can. 

The right job for you:
You have many goals and want to achieve as much as you can. The jobs you enjoy are those that let you burn off your considerable excess energy. 

How do you view success:
You are confident that you will be successful in your chosen career and nothing will stop you from trying. 

What are you most afraid of:
You are afraid of things that you cannot control. Sometimes you show your anger to cover up how you feel. 

Who is your true self:
You like privacy very much because you enjoy spending time with your own thoughts. You like to disappear when you cannot find solutions to your own problems, but you would feel better if you learned to share your thoughts with a person you trust

a few words, yes..

..but have stuck with me.

Choose the people you trust wisely.

There are types of people that wander this place: like who talk ill about you and to think that you've treated them as one of your good friends after all this time. Sad truth yes, but i'd rather know the truth about it rather spend my time with the friend with a knife behind his/her back..ready to strike at any given chance.

So please, be careful. Do not trust anyone completely unless you've known them and situations have told you their worth of your trust.

Sometimes, the person you'd take a bullet for ends up being the one behind the gun. - Tupac

Excuse me, but do you know this girl?

A lot can change in the course of a year. How much more in roughly 4 years. See, change is like happiness.. it wouldn't happen unless you choose for it to happen.

College moves you and shapes you, if you choose it to or else you'd be stuck in the same place and stance. It teaches you a lot both academically and in life.
If i would travel back in time in some bizarre phenom happening of the universe, and met this Freshmen at the then CBA lobby, i wouldn't have recognized myself. A lot has changed in roughly 4 years: physically, emotionally, spiritually and in experience. (I have learned a lot, too.) It's as if your world has done a 180 backflip, then felt it wasn't contented and did a double somersault. The phasing of change seemed to surprise me as well. The sudden switch in myself every semester. I wasn't the same person as i was every last semester, because i chose to. I am the type of person that embraces change and i wouldn't want to be seen as the same Abi that they were around with for the last couple of months only to find the same one after a couple of weeks. Its either i change my hair, buy new stuff, change my makeup routine or whatever. I hate boring. And this characteristic of me loving change does not apply to just myself, but also to the course i've chosen. See, one of the reasons i chose to take up Marketing is because creativity is essential in it. We are required to constantly think about something new in order to keep the target market interested and to keep competition up there. So, everyday is a different day at the workplace. I just hope i indeed find and get a marketing job when i graduate. Anyway, back to the main topic...
Life hits you with punches out of nowhere and its up to you on how would you handle the force. It's either you dodge, or take the punch and get right back up. Life has given me some pretty hard punches inside the 4 and a half years and left me with bruises and scars called life lessons. 
It's funny when i look at old pictures saved here on my laptop and thought 'wow did i really look like that back then?'. Here's proof of the "change" i've been talking about..

*I haven't added a new recent picture of myself to this. I've recently cut my hair shorter :). oh well, on another blog entry perhaps.
