Guns and Girls

 So last night I finished writing the dubbing script of a show that has a war setting. It was a little complicated to do even if there was less dialogue due to a lot of the scenes being in action mode. I guess I had difficulty choosing the right word to use especially military terms? I hope it did well on this and there won't be a problem during dubbing.  Today, I'm midway done with this half-hour teen comedy dubbing script. This one is tough to translate because of the snappy dialogue and some of the jokes are heavy on pop-culture references that are not easy to localize but it's so fun doing it! Normally, I would like to try to finish it today but I decided to take a break since I'm halfway done already and my brain needs to recharge so I can finish it tomorrow with creativity in full capacity!

Surviving So Far

Just like that, we are enting the last quarter of 2022! Well, so far this year has been a rollercoaster ride! I'm still so nervous about what lies ahead but the present looks good and I hope it can stay that way and that there will be no more major setbacks. I'm grateful though that for all the negative pits I fell into, I still find myself climbing. Some major happened, and some didn't and very thankful for that.  Praying hard each day that brighter days ahead despite a dark cloud looming.

No Echo

Ever since that month I've been trying to disengage really because truth be told I just feel hopeless that things will still turn out for the better anytime soon. I know there are a good amount who doesn't feel it was legit support but when you are on the ground and interact with regular people, you will know what the pulse truly is. It's disheartening but what can we do? I try not to think about it anymore because unpleasant thoughts come into my head and it's not a good feeling at all. I'm dealing with so many personal things already that  I can't add that up one on my list of worries.

On Deck

I have three dubbing scripts to finish in the coming days. Three different shows as well. An Asian historical drama, then Mexican telenovela, and an American youth comedy. I really want to do the comedy first because it's shorter and just sounds more fun to do but I think I will do the tougher script which is the historical drama. I previewed it and there are scenes of war so not as much dialogue as heavy as let's say the Mexican soap or tricky to write with all the  Gen Z pop culture jokes for the American comedy. Glad to be continually busy. I was busy the past few doings doing my channel duties and quality checking for dubbing. I need to finish some stuff tomorrow so I can have the night cleared to start writing! I feel quite messy these days with all the worries personally and then the mistake of caring so much about what's happening in the country and the world. Those are things I have no control over anyway. I want to completely check out from that because my personal life is already too much but sometimes I can't help it but still care despite trying to be this apathetic person.  So getting lost in the world for the dubbing scripts I write really helps me a lot to be honest. I watch TV while earning from it so that's nice!

 Because of someone's carelessness, I have to stop doing something I really like doing. While I do think what that person did is not comparable to it but just to be safe we have to cover all our bases. It's a bummer because I liked doing it to feel good about myself. But it really is on the surface just a shallow thing so it's fine.

Another restless night is upon us. I need to be at my best to not make things worst. I have to be the source of confidence despite me losing all hope inside but I can't let this energy affect them. It's really difficult mentally speaking. But I need to be strong

 It's the calm before the storm. There's a looming supertyphoon coming and while right now it is still just gloomy here, the reports are very alarming and frankly scary as well. Around this time, superthyphoons are quite prevalents. Milenyo. Ondoy.  I hope this one won't be as scary as those two.

 Balancing things I need to do this weekend is extra tricky. Like what do I prioritize first? I did realized that I neglected one major thing in my life because I've been so preoccupied in front of my laptop all the time. So now I allocated good enough time for that so it won't be neglected anymore. Of course I do a lot of things in service for them but you need to spend time as well to just talk things that are not about the immediate concerns.

 Today's my uncle's birthday. He would have turned 58 today. Two years later, I still feel sad that we lost him so soon. And truth to be told, I still think it's so unfair he passed away with so much life left in him. But life is just unpredictable. His death and the months-long struggle before he left are something until now left a big mark on me. I was there during his last breath. Tito Romy, Happy Birthday up there. We miss you so much

 Another stressful night dealing with things that happens so many times that I don't really know how to handle it anymore. Trying to stay calm as possible. Trying to be in control of everything. Trying not to let fears take over. Trying not to lose hope.
