I used to have a diary in 2005 – an idea I got after watching the romantic film The Notebook. It’s the only written memoir I own. The funny thing though is that it’s almost empty – a mere decoration. Only ALMOST, so there are a small number of pages filled with thoughts of naiveties, discoveries, experiments, cravings and whatever a 19-year old gay guy is addicted to. One of the entries was actually titled “On URBANATTOISM” and the word itself was mentioned several times. I wasn’t really full of mysteries; I just exhausted much of that year in school. LOVE (and all that jazz) came a bit later. So there!
Let me end this post by leaving you with that picture above. That’s Perry Escaño (nice screen name) can be seen on GMA’s Lupin and recently appeared in the indie film Compound. We attended the same university but he’s a few years ahead. He’s an active member of the theatrical organization in school and even led a popular student political party. The last time I saw him was in Malate (just outside BED and Pride Exchange) while he was busy with few gay friends. We’re not really close but I would say he’s STRAIGHT, mind you! As to why he’s in that place, I really don’t know. He’s probably just being queer-friendly. And oh, URBANATTOISM is an anagram. By rearranging the letters, you’ll get a clue on what I was up to in 2005. Until now actually.
