My real name is Diana Rose, nicknamed Diane but here in the blogosphere I go by the name ‘Roro’ (pronounce as roh-row).
I started to call myself that since I was in high school. People would ask me why ‘Roro’. Others would assume I got the word from the two letters of my middle name which is ‘Rose’ or the fact that where I came from that word denotes two separate meanings; Roro as a type of boat and Roro as a person that is unlucky or hopeless.
The real meaning of my nickname ‘Roro’ is the latter. I’m very well known as the clumsy type by both my family and friends. I always had this ‘unfortunate events’ happening around me.
But the great thing about them is at the end of the day, I just laugh them off. Those hilarious moments of my life what made me the kind of person today.
I like it when people just call me Roro, from friends to strangers; and it’s not because I’m proud of my funny mistakes but because of these series of comical unfortunate events, I get to know myself more and more. So let’s be friends and call me Roro, okay?
