People call him the “more silent, and serious one, saying that he is often an O.C. (Obsessive Compulsive), perfectionist, and even control freak” person at times.
“You know what I say?” says Harley, “They just don’t know me well. I may be those but there’s absolutely more than just being a perfectionist. There’s the personality in me that just makes me feel blessed to have, and that’s having the capability to know what I cannot do.“
“My family and friends totally disagree on me being silent and serious. I am a funny and an enjoy-seeking individual, they should have known it because they have been with me through my hardest laugh and joyous moments. I try to improve myself everyday of this life so I make the most out of it by trying something new, and I think it’s time for me to tell them that ‘there’s more than meets the eye’.”
“I can be a competitive person that enjoys challenges and excels in everything I do. I always give importance to the words ‘Excellence’ and ‘Perfection’ not because that’s not what I’m known for but because that’s what I live by. I am not perfect but it doesn’t stop me from doing things perfectly in all my capabilities.”
“The truth is what I am always asking for, I dislike drama and fake acting plastics because I know for myself that I am what I am and all the things that I express are from my heart and soul. I will always be true to everyone and to myself. If there’s one thing that I would want everyday, that is for me to live in tranquility and with peace in mind. Silence is the strongest thing that I am capable of doing for my-self’s betterment. Through it, I enjoy communicating with my Creator.”
“Inspiration is one thing that I believe I will never run out of. This is one thing I consider most in writing and sharing to you guys what I know. My passion and love for writing will always be there for as long as I live, and I may not be consequently writing but my love for it will never fade away. Because more than anything in this world, I love Writing the most! I consider writing different things that interests me, and I always write passionately making sure that every reader gets into the place of the situation. I see writing as a way for relaxation and reminiscing the joyous things in life.”
