Anyone of you addicted to Twitter yet? Shhesshh! I am.


I joined Twitter way back when it first started. First, so I can promote my blog and post my entries directly on to Twitter. I didn't think that I will get any followers but lo and behold, I now can boast of 1152 followers. Yay!

I didn't think that I was going to be addicted to it as well. I was not really active on Twitter but being a celebrity blogger that I am, I needed to be updated in anything and everything that's going on in Hollywood so that my blog is almost real-time when things occur.

Recently, I became very active on Twitter because I found it fun to interact with my followers. I never really knew how to interact with them before until some of my followers started contacting me. The iPhone Twitter App is amazing and I can actually see who mentions me and if they have a message for me, I get notified.

Let's talk about the phrase answer I always get, "I'm straight dude!"



It is something that I have. Call it a gift, call it luck - call it whatever you wanna call it but straight guys have a fondness of me. Yup! Straight guys. At least that is what they tell me all the time. Whatever happens after that statement is beyond me but here are my stories.

I started to discover this 'gift' when I was younger. I had no gay friends growing up. I was always hanging out with straight kids. Even though they may have sensed that I was not the typical straight kid, they enjoyed my company. I go along with sports, mischief and so forth so there's really nothing that they can say about me.

Most of the straight guys I hung out with in high school will protect me from bullies. They always tell me that if someone takes advantage of me, just let them know and they will take care of it. Such power!

Well, looking back now - I realized that straight men enjoy my company. I am funny, I tell jokes a lot and I am just easy to get along with. No dramas.

One guy I particularly hung out with all the time just pulled me one day and told me that, "I've never felt like this before. I've had many gay friends but there's something about you!". Of course, I didn't take advantage of that because his girlfriend is a friend of mine. I wouldn't even dare cross that line.



Another time, I was invited by my neighbor (he's a cop) to his house for a party. There were lots of straight couples there. And if they are in a relationship, I pretty much stay away from them. Yet, at the end of the party, there's this one cute guy who came in and started taking shots with the guys. They asked me to join them and for fun, I did. After a while, (when everyone was tipsy), the host (the cop) had to kick us out because he has an early duty the next day. Since I lived across the street, I told the guys that we can take the party to my place.

When rejection gives you a feeling of low self-esteem and self-worth...


You've been rejected in one form or another I would suspect. It's just one of those things that are going to be a part of our lives forever. It's not a one time thing. All through life, we get rejected. It could be a rejection from a job you are applying for, or by a person you are interested in, even probably a position in your company that you are vying for.

It can come in all shapes and sizes. It's not the rejection that is what shapes who we are. It is our reaction to the rejection.

When you didn't get the toy you have always wanted for Christmas, how did you react. Did you learn from the experience? Did you learn how to please your mom or dad so that next Christmas, you will get what you wanted?

As you grow older, these reactions to the very part of life called rejection teaches us something. It could make you a better person, or it can destroy your entire being.
