On The Fence

 So some college classmates invited me for a get-together next week. I didn't commit but I did vote on the poll on where to go. It's Sunday but I do house errands in the morning and usually do scripts in the afternoon or if there's no immediate due, sleep. Also, truth be told, I don't feel like engaging with people these days because just my introverted self, and also I don't know if I will just feel nostalgic but also at the same time a failure. I know crazy. Let's see.

Scram

 Another dubbing script done! Honestly, I could have finished it earlier but it's so cold today that I took some quick afternoon naps (yes plural) instead of finishing the script! This is the struggle when the weather is cold!

10 Missed Calls

 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

Initiative

 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.

Cleared

 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

Missed

 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!

See

Why can't I feel happy about this matter that makes sense on paper but just makes me think of the other side gloating? It is just pride? I guess this is a lesson in humility?  This isn't really a big thing but just about something of personal interest? hobby? I don't know to explain it. Maybe it is like my version of sports I guess. Yeah, I'm rambling but I just need to let this thing that bothers me out in the open so hopefully, I can drop it and not be bothered by something that's not really a big deal, I just make it to be.

Makjang

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!

Bloom

 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.

Horizon

 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.
