My name is JP

I used to live as a different person. I was a person who do not care so much about others but himself. I literally ate, got drunk and got merry… slept and took showers in between. Then there was a major turn of events in my life that made me thinking… “Is this really the way I want to live my life?” My adventure did not stop when I became HIV positive. Neither did it start there. Being HIV positive is just one part of my life… there are more to me than meets the eye.

I love the arts, I like sport (at least those that I know how to play). Ironically, I hate television and I do not enjoy reading fashion magazine but I like dressing up and I am a social flirt. I enjoy dinning out and experiencing different food. I am not rich but I try not too look underprivileged… Please don’t get me wrong, I am no social climber. As a matter of fact I try to understand why people the way they are, I don’t try to be like them, I just adapt to their personality so I’d be able to understand them and they’d be able to understand and trust me in return.

I try to live a good life. I am no saint. I’ve had my fair share and made a lot of mistakes in my life. I still commit most of them. I’m a fast learner but I am hard headed. I think this is the reason why keep repeating my blunders. I definitely learn from them and still commit them since I know I’d be able to easily handle them the next time around.

I made this blog so I can talk about my insights, talk about different situations in my life and other people's lives. Discuss my emotions and how I perceive the people, places and events around me. This so-called "life" of mine will end eventually and I want to be able to document the interesting events within it. But basically I want to share how it is being HIV positive and living a normal life. I hope that through my writing, other people (straight, gay, negative or positive) will learn, discover and enjoy life without necessarily going through the same experiences I went through.

My name is JP. Welcome to my world.

Name: Jose Paolo Gonzales
Nickname: JP
Birth year: 1975
Status: Single

I am a Spontaneous Idealist. Spontaneous Idealists are creative, lively and open-minded persons. We are humorous and dispose of a contagious zest for life. Our enthusiasm and sparkling energy inspires others and sweeps them along. We enjoy being together with other people and often have an uncanny intuition for their motivations and potential. Spontaneous Idealists are masters of communication and very amusing and gifted entertainers. Fun and variety are guaranteed when we are around. However, we are sometimes somewhat too impulsive in dealing with others and can hurt people without really meaning to do so, due to our direct and sometimes critical nature.

My personality type is a keen and alert observer; I miss nothing which is going on around me. In extreme cases, I tend to be oversensitive and exaggeratedly alert and are inwardly always ready to jump. Life for me is an exciting drama full of emotionality. However, I quickly become bored when things repeat themselves and too much detailed work and care is required. My creativity, imaginativeness and originality become most noticeable when developing new projects and ideas - I, most of the time, leave the meticulous implementation of the whole to others. On the whole, people with my personality type attach great value to our inner and outward independence and do not like accepting a subordinate role. I,therefore, tend to have problems with hierarchies and authorities. (Source:
