Vanessa | Blushing GeekKonnichiwa!

I’m Vanessa, but you can simply call me Van. I was born and raised in Bohol but is now currently residing inΒ the Queen City of the South, Cebu City, Philippines.

I’m an ordinary freelance worker by day and an extraordinary geek by night, well, mostly all day. Growing up, I know I’m going to become a bookworm. I remember when I was in my 3rd grade, I always love reading dialogues to myself and pretending I’m the voice actors or even the character itself. I was then introduced to the beautiful world of tagalog romance novel during my 5th grade and that’s when I realized my passion in reading which also made me aspire to become a writer someday.

College life was like h*ll and that’s when I started reading English books and eventually, I become addicted to it. I’ve been hoarding and reading books since then. Aside from reading books, you can find me watching anime or jamming to Avril Lavigne and Simple Plan‘s music.

If you can’t find me at home, I’m probably gone wandering. Yep, like most people, I love traveling. I wish I could just read and travel without worrying about my bills lol.

10 Random Facts About Me:

10. I love photography, but I’m not good with angles lol.
9. Terrified to get eaten by sharks. (Yep, I blame this to my cousins who loves to watch shark movies when I was younger)
8. When I was in high school, I tried writing 2 tagalog romance stories but all got stuck in chapter two. I already have my plot, conflict and the ending but I don’t know what to write in the middle.
7. I have tons of barbie collection when I was young and have my younger boy cousin play with me. (And nope, he’s not gay. As a matter of fact, he’s crush ng bayan now)
6. I’m a sucker for a Filipino-style spaghetti. (I’m sure I could live forever just eating that)
5. I cried so hard after our first thesis proposal was denied. I was then caught by my sister which she spread the news to our mother. I gave them the reason that my close friend/classmate died. Yep, that’s lame.
4. I love watching horror and morbid (like you can see blood all over) movies.
3. I’m a sucker for anything cute.
2. I love chocolates. (if chocolate hills is edible, it’s gone by now for sure)
1. This is my first time making a random list and I don’t want to do it again, haha, it’s hard!.

I’m normally shy, but I always love meeting new people. So if you want to make friends, please feel free to contact me through my social media accounts, or you can shoot me an email. Don’t worry, I don’t bite *wink.

  • “Blush”, “Geek” – Two seemingly contradicting worlds. But really it’s eye-catching πŸ˜‰

    I hope I won’t resort to using #5 though lol

    • Hehe, totally. It just so happens that my ears played the biggest role in naming my blog.

      For #5, let’s do hope that it wouldn’t happen to you. Hehe, it’s actually the lamest thing I did so far.

      • To be honest, as I’m running out of reasons for a sick leave, I somewhat thought about using that same reason too. Good thing I don’t have the guts like yours! JK!

        I’m a newbie book reviewer pala πŸ˜€

        • Wahaha, I guess “gut-sy” people like me are one of kind lol

          Yay! Welcome to the club. Are you only reviewing books from tagalog authors?

          • Haha true! People with more guts fail more but have higher chance of succeeding. And to add, the only reason they fail is because they try πŸ˜‰

            Hmm.. not really. It’s actually a mix of Tagalog and English authors. My focus of genre is mostly self-help and Christian(ese).

            But I’ve tried reading mystery e-books and so far it’s a good experience too. πŸ™‚

          • True. You can’t achieve anything if you don’t try at all right?

            Wow. That’s kinda big. I’m more into fantasy books but once in a while, I do like reading those kinds of books you love to read.

            Yeah? So there’s a chance you’ll addicted to mystery books now? I could suggest you an author if you like hehe.

          • Just realized that my last comment can easily be misinterpreted. Well, it’s really on the bright side πŸ˜€

            I just finished 3 mystery e-books and I think I gotta take a break for now. My bad because I read all from the same author (sawa factor came in).

          • No worries. *wink

            Wow, if you don’t mind asking, who’s the author?

          • Blake Pierce πŸ™‚ I’ve read 3 of his mystery books. The first 2 (Before He Kills and Cause To Kill) look the same but the 3rd (Once Gone) one stepped up its game I would say.

            Review’s scheduled to be posted soon πŸ˜€

          • Haven’t heard the author before but I’m pretty sure it’s good. Looking forward to your review πŸ˜‰

          • Sure! Will let you know once it’s up. Thanks Vane! I suppose that’s your nickname?

          • That’s great! Thanks Warjie.
            Well, that’s close enough. But you can call me Vane if that’s more convenient for you πŸ˜‰

  • Λ—ΛοΎŸβœ§βœ¨Sisyphus✨✧゚ ΛŽΛŠΛ—

    Just followed you in your blog ate! I would love to meet and talk to you in person! You’re great and I’m a Filipino blogger as well. If you wanted to critique my blogs please do! I love to listen in your opinion. Here’s my site: http://www.talkinitupwiths.wordpress.com <3 Godbless you more sa site mo po πŸ˜€ Let's support each other as fellow kababayans!

    • Hi Shanen. I appreciate you following my blog, I’m following back too πŸ™‚

      I’ve checked your blog and so far, you are doing great! I think the thing you’re lacking is to interact with other bloggers, like commenting on their blogs as well as following them through social media accounts. Blogging is not just about you but it should also about making friends with other bloggers as well.

      I think I will be creating a post on some tips in blogging soon. Thanks for the idea girl!

      Have fun blogging!
