So an unregistered number called my number 10x and when I texted "who is this?" no reply. If it was really important they would reply or at least they would have texted when I didn't answer the first time. I suspect it's a sales call or maybe even a scam. These days the only people I text are family and the carpool driver for my ride home. So I really don't answer unregistered numbers. They are doing their jobs but I just don't like dealing with salespeople

Sometimes I do wish people are sensitive enough not to let bad energy spread to others. As a person, who is always on the receiving end of this it really takes a toll on you no matter how you try to pacify the situation or pretend that it does not affect you in any way. It's hard to take in and I cope by just thinking that this isn't the worst-case scenario so I should be at least thankful for that. I am of course but nevertheless when there are rough patches even if it's small, it still shakes my system and affects me in a way I always feel heavy. And yes thinking of another life always happens. But I pull myself back to what is my reality and I go back to what I do best - keeping it together.

I was able to finish this task in preparation for a more challenging task that I will do in the next few days. I hope I can concentrate well on this because I always get distracted for some reason. But it's always just at the start but when I get things going I am on fire so hopefullly I can get things done tomorrow i

Oscar nods are out and sadly Dolly De Leon missed for Best Supporting Actress. What's sad is that her film Triangle of Sadness got nominated for screenplay, directing and picture. She was probably 6th in the voting. So frustrating! But then again for her to reach this far especially since she had a very lowkey acting career even in her home country is still amazing. I hope they invite her to present at the Oscars!

Finished writing the Filipino dubbing script of this kdrama that I just learned is what's classified as "makjang". I guess it's like the equivalent of our traditional teleseryes? There's a baby switch in this show I just finished working on. Also it has over 100 episodes and with 30 minute runtime so this aired everyday. It really has the typical soap opera elements and also has lower production value compared to the the famous kdramas that has less than 20 episodes usually. But anyway this show I believed hasn't aired yet on local TV because last I checked it wasn't on the schedule of the network that acquired this. It's still airing the other kdrama we worked on and finished dubbing late last year. Anyway, this show is quite a treat to write because I can just do it in a day because it has a smooth flow and not as tricky dialogues to adapt. I'm ahead of the deadline by two weeks! Whew! But I did plan to finish this first because I have two tougher English dubbing scripts to work on for the next two weeks!

I read something that gave me hope that we did the right thing. My overthinking self usually finds a lot of seemingly ordinary things as a sign that we did it wrong but for the first time, I read something that gave me hope that maybe my worst fear will not be happening. I will probably go back being paranoid sooner or later but anything that can give me hope I would hold on to.

Just watched The Fabelmans and I really liked it. Gabriel Labelle,, really should have been in the conversation for Best Actor nominee, he was good and carried the movie very well. I never warmed up to Paul Dano before but I really like him here. Seth Rogen, as usual, annoyed me but it kinda suits the character he's playing Michelle Williams is really good because the character could have been a campy mess but she brought humanity to a character that is annoying on paper. While it is Spielberg's personal story, it still captured a very universal feeling on how to deal with life as you grow up and learn more about your family and what drives you in life.

The meeting we had with the client was more of a general online presentation to all partner studios but honestly, I'm really excited about this one. It's just starting and they are still in the process of working things out so the actual work assignments won't be coming soon we just have to familiarize ourselves with the platform that we will use first. I've tried it and it's really exciting!

Today I managed to learn more about this potential project we have. This is different from what I normally do but nevertheless still interests me! This is more challenging because there's a specific tool I have to use plus timing and everything. Tomorrow, I'll get to know more about what the process will be. I feel motivated to do well in this area as well!
