A wek from now...

It's gonna be a torturous week as I will be haunted by fear of what could happen. It will be taking turns of staying hopeful and dreading a bad result. I don't want to be complacent but I don't want to be this anxious as well. Oh Dear Lord, please let my fears not happen.

Coward

 Anxiety rising yet again. On top of the lingering personal problem I made the mistake of checking out what's going on in the world. Yeah, it just made me even feel worried and scared than usual. My sense of curiosity has led me to do this. I did dream of becoming a journalist but yeah I wasn't build to do it. Not brave enough.

Tropical

 I have packed lunch so I rarely go out of the office especially in this new one where we are at the 20th floor. I had to buy something earlier at Mercury Drug and there I finally saw the viral effect on the nearby Tropical Hut, it was jampacked! During the mornings and afternoon when I pass by it, there are not many people so I was wondering when their "it" status online gonna reflect in the branch here. It turns out pag lunch pala!Unlike other people, I prefer that they don't renovate! As long as it's clean (and it is!), it's fine by me. I like seeing something that looks and feels classic!

Fear on Routine

 Here I go again, going so paranoid again. One moment things will be fine then another moment anxiety attacks that prevent me from being complacent. Thinking of worst-case scenarios and how I can handle it, hopefully, as calmly as possible. If it only involves me, I can deal it on my own but other people will be affected. Lord, please hear my prayer.

Sew

 I had a pants emergency today hahaha! It has given up on me although good thing I have a needle and thread pack I bought on 7-11 so I had a temporary fix. But I do need to buy new pants. I haven't bought in a while. It's a little difficult to find something when you are fat like me! But anyway, I was still able to manage!

Done!

Just finished doing today's work! And I edited A LOT today. QC of three dubbed episodes completed a dubbing script, rendered 10 episodes of two shows for airing on the channel, and revised schedule grids! Some of the tasks are not really urgent but I wanted to finish it today so I can have a more flexible next three days of work. I want to do things before the deadline, and I want to avoid cramming. Better do things as early as possible despite the heavier load task than to rush things off!

EMV

 So I got my captured ATM card back today and while it is still working the bank staff told me that my card is an old model and that I need to request for a new one. Thankfully, since it will be my first replacement under the new model then it is free of charge! I will just have to wait for a week though but hey at least it isn't the stress-inducing hassle I thought it was a couple of days ago

Pick it Up

 Very pleased I was able to finish the dubbing script of this TV show I was working the past few days. It's quite difficult but it's kind of challenge I like because I'm engrossed with the show! There was a scene where I had to translate a character doing spoken word poetry and then a homeless man singing a nonsensical song that eventually became important between the characters. I hope the dubbing of this will be good although I already foresee it will be harder to dub than normal especially the lead character!

Today is Father's Day and we were so full today because of the food my siblings prepared then they ordered some other too. However, Tatay received news that a close relative passed away. Oh life.

You

 I was working on this dubbing script that was really quite hard! It's narration-driven with a lot of quick wit and snappy quips that's a challenge to translate especially some of culture-driven metaphors and one-liners that were said.. I'm halfway done today and hoping to finish it tomorrow. It's challenging but really interesting to do I can try to finish it tonight but I'm quite sleepy already and I need my full attention to work on this.

Retrieve

 So yeah I was a little overdramatic yesterday with what happened to my ATM card. I was able to talk to them again earlier and they were more reassuring and easy to talk. Too bad when they finally were able to open the machine and retrieve my card, I was already on the bus home when they texted.. The staff I texted suggested that I should have the ATM card replaced with their new design now. I don't think it's really necessary but you see I don't think it's bad idea to have the card replaced though. I'll just figure it out on Monday
