Attention Attention, Imitation, Bullshit

Attention, Attention

Allow me to indulge for a little bit as I rekindle bittersweet memories from my past.

I haven’t done a Bryanboy Life Archives post in a long time so here goes. Enjoy as I give some light to the skeletons in my walk-in wardrobe.


If you’re a parent, the worst thing that could ever happen to you is to give birth to an attention-seeking, greedy little child with short attention span.


Ever since I came out from my mom’s orifice, I have always been an attention-seeking whore… a subject of ridicule.


I went to a hardcore catholic private school and I’m telling you – it ain’t fun.

I’ll give you a kiss on the cheek and an oreo cookie if you can spot me in this picture. Click it for the full-size.


You see, schools in the Philippines shouldn’t fuckin force Catholicism and religion to kids. I remember having Protestant and Born Again Christian classmates… even they have to study Catholicism – but then again, they’re in a Catholic School. Bleurgh. Enough religious bullshit.

Anyway, I’ve put an enormous amount of effort just to make friends with anyone in my class.

I really have.

However, instead of gaining acceptance from my former classmates, everyone looked down at me as if I’m scum. 

I don’t blame them.

I did all sorts of things to gain attention. I nicked stationery, stickers and pens for fun. I did a little extortion stint asking a couple of bucks from each student who wants to use the bathroom. Heck, I even faked one of my faggot ex-teacher’s signature on my own project because I submitted it late. Little had I known that he doesn’t use a pen with PINK ink.

Trust me, each and every year I was in school I was sent to the "guidance counselor"… and year after year, my parents have gone to the principal’s office to straighten things out.

Over the years, I’ve put both of my parents to an unbelievable amount of shame.

I was even sent to a shrink… at 12… yep. It was THAT tragic.

Alas, I don’t think they had Ritalin back in the dark ages.

These days, I’d do anything just to see my current shrink… if only I had the time. All it takes is for me to complain that I couldn’t sleep at night because of a handbag that I want and the next thing you know, he hands out three sheets of paper that allows me to get me candy from the pharmacist. It’s amazing!

Imitation My Ass

Knock knock cliche. I don’t think imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I think it’s recognition and respect.

You’ve read my mind. Yes, there’s someone out there copying me.

It’s nothing new though. He’s the same person I busted before for copying me and stealing my posts.

Instead of plagiarizing my posts word per word, he’s stolen ideas and certain items except he’s done his own twist on it.

God I despise knock-offs.



And the damage doesn’t stop there. Here’s one that made me tick off.


(no, that’s not me btw.)

and then he used my name in vain…


It’s flattering to an extent because according to him, my blog is one of his favourites. Although I find it interesting on how he didn’t link my blog on his blog when all his other favourites are there – I think he’s scared for his readers to find out he’s copying me.

Here I am, doing my own thing, enjoying myself and having fun at the same time, trying to achieve acceptance from others as I search what my true purpose in life is.

I have always thought of myself as an outcast – I don’t belong anywhere. I have always thought nobody wants me for being me hence I’m on a constant, lifelong search for people who will appreciate me as it is.

Yet as you do your own thing in this planet, you trigger other people to BE you…. to copy you.

Has the world really gone bad? Why oh why oh why oh why?

I guess I shoud be flattered because there are people who want to be me.

But ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Am I selfish for not wanting to see myself in others?

I know most people want to see themselves on other people because they want to be able to relate to one another.

I’m royally pissed. I think I’m breeding negativity here.

I’ll shut the fuck up – I think I’m better off with a gag order.

I’m going to light some L’Artisan candles, relax and indulge on vanilla ice cream.

I need to be surrounded by positive energy… so I’ll be positive.


P.S. I’m really not a bitch. I promise! It’s just that I am so pissed. Just give me time, please, I need time.

I need time to be able to control what I’m saying so I won’t hurt other people.

I need time to choose whatever comes out of my mouth so it won’t look negatively on me when I say something.

I need time to care the consequences of whatever I say.

I need time to… oh fuck it. I don’t need time to learn how to bullshit.

Fuck bullshit.

Because even a fuckin 5 year old can spot a knock-off.

And no, that ain’t bullshit.



Baboosh again!

P.P.S.S. Big shout out to all employees of McCann Erickson Philippines, particularly Peter. Byanboy loves y’all. God knows what Peter thought of me. Ignore whatever you’ve heard from him – they’re all false. Hah hah. *kiddin* I love you all.


  1. don’t worry your fabulous self over that copycat…he looks like a mudpost next to you…I mean, really…what’s up with the monstrosity he’s wearing???

  2. nope, that’s not me babe… close but not that close.
    NEXT! ;)
    hahahahahah. boy this is gonna be fun. LOL.
    thanks re: birkin

  3. I feel sorry for that imitator for he needed to copy another life for his life to appear interesting. Dapat sa kanya, ituring parang surot…tirisin.
    ps. please read my blogspot and tell me your insight bout it. shalamas.

  4. i’ve been reading your posts for some time now and i just love them! well i guess you know i read it because you sent love to my location (both my home and workplace haha)
    anyway, here’s my guess…are you the first one from the left of the last row??? yes?

  5. Sunprincess

    Hey gorgeous! I’d love to see your closet and your bag collection. Game for a little pictionary? Kisses

  6. hi gorgeous….
    don’t let that low life copycat of yours bother you.. he is not even close to how fabulous you are..
    and oh btw, your blog is very addictive, i can’t get enough of it..

  7. Maiden Dan

    You’re definitely the first one from the left (first row). Check out that pose!

  8. Hey Bryan, I wanna see this copycat’s blogspot.. I really wanna laugh! Can you post the url? By the way, you’re extremely fabulous! I just love reading your blog! Kisses! <3

  9. you went to CSA in laguna??
    I left that school in 2nd grade when i moved out of that country.
    lol, well that part’s blurred i cant be sure. but when i looked at that picture brought back the memories of those plaid uniform skirts.
    anyway cool blog.
    i come by here once in a while.
    you lead an interesting life.
    just wondering..did you ever go to university?

  10. … I can’t stop reading your blog!!!!!!! It’s the best!!! :D it would be even BETTER if you did reality TV o.O (have I said too much?)

  11. Ewwww the blog biter cannot come close!!! If he shows up with a Kelly, though, I think that would be grounds for war.
    Thanks for sendin love to the workplace!

  12. I just learned about your blog a few days ago and I am addicted! I just love it!!!

  13. Now that I have had the time to thoroughly peruse the imposter’s blog, I feel safe in making the following judgement:
    Seriously, he’s got a skin problem.
    Really Imposterboy, a dermatologist can help you with that. At the very least, you could exfoliate once in awhile. Let’s not even get into peels, which you seem never to have heard of. Also, get better friends. The ones you have are just as poseur-riffic as you seem to be. Also, YOU ARE NOT A PHILOSOPHER, IMPOSTERBOY. Get over yourself.

  14. Yeah, I checked it out… so what’s the fuckin big deal if somebody copied your style or if you really have one in the first place. Puhleezz, you also need a serious reconsideration on your self-image. You aint a looker and putting up all this drama doesnt make you a queen but in fact a worse version of a third world country thrash… get over yourself and also for those people who praised or kinda worshipped this biatch.. get a life… and one thing you can just be anyone because of this stupid blog but in reality you are just a nobody.. a social climber perhaps.. and honestly you lack taste.. dear take note that rich people here in Europe doesnt show off their wealth since it’s considered lack of taste, cheap or I guess in your vocabulary “baduy”… Anyways, ponder this words of wisdom.. ta da!!! Mwuahhhhhhh

  15. Good god. You went to San Agustin Makati too? What a traumatic. I still wake up screaming in the night because of that place.
    An absolute purgatory. Devoid of any culture whatsoever.
    Shudder. Shudder.

  16. @nothing: Good God! If you must criticize someone, at least make sure that your grammar is halfway decent…Subject-Verb agreement is basic, you know? Verb conjugation is, too…
