"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

"It's better to be known by six people for something you're proud of than by 60 million for something you're not." --Albert Brooks

question: how many val---s are there in the world?
answer: i don't know.

a search using google told me there are other val---s in the world...

there's val--- with the deviantart account (an artist at heart eh?). val--- the 50th level sorcerer (uhm...a magician?). val--- the fashion model (ow?). val--- manufacturing company. val--- at find a grave (must be dead?). val---, track and field star. val--- the swimming scholar. val--- the cancer patient who went for wigs. val--- the broker. val--- the missing classmate. val--- the lost alumna. val--- the guardian of the enchanted apple of oz (the whaaaat?). val--- the hairstylist (cooool!). there's also dr. val---, head geneticist lending her expertise to an experimental research program for genetic animal branding (astig!). val--- the elf with pointed ears and crystal green eyes (sounds nice, ehehehe). val--- the newborn (uuuwaaaaa!). val--- the ballroom performer (uh huh?). there's even a sis. val---! whoa whoa whoa...

...and i thought my name was unique! thank you google for cold-heartedly killing one of my illusions.

but hey! i still have a consolation: my complete baptismal name is still unique... that is as far as checking google is concerned, hahaha, good luck!

"Since the beginning of time never has there been another with my mind, my heart, my eyes, my ears, my hands, my hair, my mouth. None that came before, none that live today, and none that come tomorrow can walk and talk and move and think exactly like me. All men are my brothers yet I am different from each. I am a unique creature." --Og Mandino

got that?

bottom line: they can have my name, but they can never ever be me. (...nor can i ever be them.)


  1. every single person in this world is unique...

    would you believe that there's a princess diandra (a very famous tranvestite in new york) and a diandra university in italy? i found out about these a year or two ago... haven't tried google, though.
