My Very First Thursday Thirteen
Thirteen Things about RIBBITICUS
Since this is going to be my initial post as a Thursday Thirteener, I thought it would be best to give y'all a little backgrounder about myself. Here goes:
1. I am a banker by day, culture vulture by night.
2. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Arts yet came to work for a financial institution - go figure!
3. This is my first job straight out of college.
4. I have been with my present employer for the past 12 years.
5. I spend between 12-14 hours at work (which doesn't leave me a lot of time to have a social life, much less a lovelife - aargh!)
6. I recently got a very tempting (almost irresistible) offer from a rival bank but after much thought and prayers for guidance, I decided to stick it out with my present employer.
7. I don't know if I will regret the decision later on.
8. I love to watch movies, dine out or just plain hang-out with friends after a hard day's work.
9. I also like to travel, read a lot, listen to an eclectic collection of music and spend time with my family (and my 2 dogs).
10. Karaoke is my guilty pleasure. (I love it so much I was one of the first members in a popular karaoke joint in Makati and even have my own Magic Mic which has 6 chips that offer about 6,000 songs in its repertoire!)
11. I am also a massage addict - foot reflexology and a combination of Swedish/Shiatsu body massage are guaranteed stress-busters.
12. I have been hooked on blogging ever since my friend, Jennie, introduced the idea to me way back April of 2004.
13. I have been wanting to be part of Thursday Thirteen for over a year but only got around to actually joining now. (Hope this first post has not been a disappointment.) See you all again next week!
The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!
