I am a [[CelibateHero single]], [[{{Geek}} geeky]], [[SmartPeopleWearGlasses bespectacled]] lecturer of [[LitClassTropes English literature]] at a major Jesuit [[WackyCollege university]] in Quezon City. I have been a licensed pilot since my college years and am a great fan of [[ComicBooks graphic novels]] and ScienceFiction. I play more VideoGames than are good for me, fly my family's [[TimTaylorTechnology souped-up]] [[CoolPlane Cessna 152]] on weekends whenever possible, and [[RidiculousProcrastinator procrastinate]] way too much when checking my students' papers.
