1. I graduated from a Baptist university where I received my B.A. in political science, joined a sorority, and got to ride in the locally televised homecoming parade wearing an evening gown for being one of the homecoming queen nominees as well as participate in other homecoming events.
2. I have somewhat of a curved spine, which wasn’t discovered until x-rays after a car accident (it wasn’t my fault) revealed them to a doctor. My husband said he couldn’t see the curve, but that he could feel it if he touched my back.

3. I love country music. I don’t know if that’s weird because I’m Asian or if people already expect it since I live in Texas, but I don’t really listen to much else (with the exception of baby/kids music). I love cowboy boots, small cities, rodeos, and dancehalls although I haven’t been in any of those since I got married minus the small city when we go back to my alma mater for homecoming.
4. I’m Filipino-American, in case I haven’t mentioned it enough on here already. I love Filipino food and Filipino telenovelas. One of my second cousins who still lives in the Philippines (and is absolutely gorgeous) is an actress who has done a few telenovelas herself. Also, my mom’s late uncle was once a cardinal of the Catholic church in the Philippines.

5. I love Europe. I mean, what girl doesn’t? I first went with my parents in 11th grade and again my freshman year of college before going on my own to complete my language credits. I really enjoy the food, the shopping, and the beautiful cities. I wouldn’t mind living there when the kids are grown up.

6. When my husband and I first got married, we would hold hands in bed every night while we slept. He oftens still takes my hand at night, and it really helps me let go of any worries or anxious thoughts that might keep me from relaxing and going to sleep.
7. Two words: Gabby Gazette. It was my pretend newspaper/magazine about current events in my life on a two column spread I wrote on our family computer when I was in fifth grade using a kids software program called Creative Writer (I had Fine Artist, too). It was a lot of fun, and I would have different sections (all written by me) including a poetry corner. I don’t think I ever printed it for anyone to read, but looking back, it was kind of like my first blog.
I don’t wanna be anything other than what I’ve been tryin’ to be lately,
All I have to do is think of me and have peace of mind,
I’m tired of looking ’round rooms wonder what I gotta do
Or who I’m supposed to be
I don’t wanna be anything other than meGavin DeGraw
