Arlyn Simbahan

In a nutshell, I am a 20-something who's determined to make something out of her life and its many-splendored awkwardness. My goal is to make a dent in the universe or die trying.

I like pushing myself to the limit and trying new things. Last year, I decided that I wanted to learn how to ride a bike. So at 23, my roommate (who's willing to put up with my random whims) and I went to the beach to rent a bike.

I was a clumsy and accident-prone kid. I was a proud owner of my own factory of awkwardness so my dad never really tried to teach me. And after a few bruises and scratches, I did learn how to bike. I was so proud of myself. After that, I was ready to conquer the world!

I like spending my leisure time alone. But don't get me wrong. I'm pretty social too. I wouldn't miss a night out with friends for the world. But my me-time is equally important to me. During those times, you could find me in the couch with a book, or alone in the room either with laptop on my belly or completely passed out and snoring like a pig.
