I'm really enjoying an upcoming season of a TV show that we're currently dubbing. I made it a big priority to check and improve the dubbing scripts of this show because the story is so riveting. I wrote the dubbing script for the season finale and it has an open-ended ending I hope it gets renewed not just because it's our project but I want to see more of this show and see how it will end!

So yeah the thing I was nervous about has been delayed for a few more days. I don't know what to feel about that. I'm the type of person that wants to do everything as soon as possible but I will just have to wait. Hoping and praying for a favorable outcome. I'll try not to stress about it in the meantime.

 Working in the office on a holiday and I really like it. It just feels more relaxed already and for some reason, I'm more productive too when there's a sense of calm. But as always there's something inside me bothered about something else. It's a recurring feel and yet I never get used to it. I want to completely surrender everything but I feel ashamed because there's still that fighting spirit that I must take note of and also get my strength too. Here it goes again but hey I need to remind myself about how despite everything that has happened, we always survive. Lord give me strength.

 So happy I was able to finish the dubbing script of an upcoming Christmas movie! Well, to be honest, it was 't really the christmasy movie I was hoping for. The story really could have happened on a regular time. It was really more of a character drama which is still right up in my alley. While I struggled to start this, once I was able to get to the big monologue parts, I really enjoyed translating it! The big declaration of love, in the end, was such a treat to translate! I'm excited when this comes out and hopefully my dubbing script will translate well on screen!

I had a goal today but didn't really do that well because well I got lazy! I guess I can afford to be lazy because this task isn't immediately due but I really want to finish this as soon as possible. I'll try again tomorrow! I want to finish this project because I want to move to other projects that I find exciting! But I have to finish this first so hopefully more progress for me tomorrow!

Holding on

 Everything is really fragile. I can't be complacent because the threat of it happening again is pretty much present. I'm scared but also trying to be relaxed about it. Maybe a little resigned as well? I don't know what to exactly feel but the last thing I need to be is the person that will add more negative energy. 

Thursday, August 25, 2022


 A little laid back for me today. Still productive but not as productive as I was the past 2 days.  It's a mix of feeling a little lazy and also giving myself some pause because overdoing things will hurt and I can produce better output at full capacity. Yesterday, I also felt I was gonna get sick but thankfully it didn't happen. So yeah maybe a little relaxed day was nice. Anyway, hopefully I'm back to full capacity tomorrow so I can more things done

Wednesday, August 24, 2022


Currently writing a dubbing script for a Christmas movie and I'm loving it so far! It's an upcoming release so excited when this comes out! It's September next week so yeah 'tis the season! I really hope our upcoming holidays will be stress-free. Praying for it hard. 

Tuesday, August 23, 2022


Rainy weather today and such a good time to actually chill but I really had a lot of things to do today, especially catching up with work that got delayed because of last week's major dilemma. So far things are looking okay but I'm always worried though. But I'm trying not to let it overwhelm me again. It's so emotionally exhausting. I need to relax and trust things will be better. Now, I'm focusing my energy on work again because hey it is  good to be distracted while also being productive!

First Day

 So my nephew's first day in face-to-face classes after 2 years was today and I asked him how was it and he had a very nonchalant response! Well, typical teen but I do hope he will adjust well and the school environment will be good for him as well. He is smart but the past 2 years definitely affected his drive for academics and also socially speaking as well outside of his Roblox online friends. High school is such a crucial time and I hope he finds a good spot as he enters this stage even if it was delayed for two years.

Back to School

 My nephew is in Grade 9 but tomorrow is his first day in face-to-face high school. It's his first time to be in a new school too. The last time he was inside a physical classroom was when he was just 11 and now he's 14. Major adjustments and I hope it works out well for him. I'm quite excited for him!

 After a very torturous week, I breathe a sigh of relief today. I'm still very much scared that this wouldn't last and we go back again to the cycle of endless uncertainty and non-stop fears but for now, I thank God, that the worst fear that I was starting to accept didn't happen. Please Lord, let this last longer. 

Friday, August 19, 2022


 My mind has been so preoccupied the past week that right now I feel so confused about what to do next. There are a million things I NEED to accomplish but the timing is just not right. I can't function but I need to make it work. For my sanity as well. 

Thursday, August 18, 2022


 So perhaps it wasn't really what I feared and it was just something to shake our consciousness. But for now, I'm managing my expectations. I went through so much hell in my mind where I basically made myself so miserable. It isn't over yet but things, hopefully, are turning around. Please give me this to us Lord.

Wednesday, August 17, 2022


 I hate to feel this way, that now I prefer the sadder option because if this continues it is basically just one big hell for all of us. Maybe there's still hope but I feel scared. Not gonna lie I'm questioning everything about why this happening and how it has gotten worst that surpasses even my worst fears. Maybe we deserve it. Or do I deserve it? My mind is spiraling and keeping it together is harder than usual but please Lord listen to my prayer. I beg you

Tuesday, August 16, 2022


 So yeah it's pretty clear, that we made a mistake. In the back of my head, I knew this was a possibility but I was hoping it wasn't because it was the easier choice but nope fate slapped us back and now we are in the worst-case scenario. A nightmare. And I don't know what to do next,

Standing on the Edge

 Here it goes again. I'm totally worried but there's nothing I can do. I'm half-accepting. I'm half in denial. It's just waiting to see if the light of hope beams again or it's total darkness. I feel numb in some ways, I feel tired too which I feel so guilty about but what I can do this is what I feel. I want to let go but maybe I'm just being the defeatist I usually am. I'm questioning so many things in life right now. It's the stress or maybe a feeling that has been buried down ever since where I was just afraid to acknowledge, I'm at this point where I just wait and see, embracing the worst-case scenario like I usually do.  Let it be.

No Escape

 Yeah, I was a fool to think it will miraculously go away. What's inevitable will happen and I really hope I can handle this so much better than I did before. I knew it. Things just don't work out for me. It never does. I'm always worried for a reason. 

Saturday, August 13, 2022


 Anxiety. I wish I could escape from this for real. But it isn't the case. It's so hard to be enslaved by this. It's driving me insane. But I need to remind myself of what happened 2 weeks ago to put me back in my proper place. I need to be strong. I need to be brave. I need to calm down.

Tonight was the finale of the long-running teleserye Ang Probinsyano. I was not really a regular viewer but an intermittent one, watched the big episodes! Anyway. I've always been fascinated with this show's success and how people are so into it. My nephew was just 7 years old when this started. I remember the show that Ang Probinsyano replaced was the teleserye about the angel Nathaniel which was his favorite too. He watched the finale on YouTube while live commenting with his friends on Discord. They were making fun of it like how teens do but still fascinating how the show is a time capsule of sort. So long Cardo, what a Pinop Pop Culture icon

 Last time I did something for myself something awful followed. It is a coincidence my mind says and yet I felt like I was punished and was reminded of how things are. It took me a few more weeks to do it again just because I was scared irrational it may seem. I did it again because there is a need for it actually. But please nothing bad next .

 So a college classmate's daughter is about to enter her first year in college now!!! Granted, she had her early but still, nothing could make you feel so older but knowing that fact of life! My nephew is entering Grade 9 too as well. Time flies. I won't get sick of saying that. Sometimes, you just don't know notice how things have changed until there's something that will shake your system like finding out people my age can have college-bound children now!

Live newsroom production back in college!  Looking back, very proud of my group, some of the news items we covered were hardcore for third-year college students! Good thing I was a writer here so no TV on-cam participation. I remember holding the manila paper of the script! How old school hahah! Oh well, I stumbled upon this video uploaded by my classmate who edited this project. It's nice to travel back in time when school stuff like this were my only source of stress!!!!

Monday, August 08, 2022


It's getting tricky to plan some things because there's always fear at the back of my head of a nightmare coming back. I easily get scared now and not just me. Yesterday's outburst post was due to that actually. While things got ok as it usually does but the effect still lingers. Oh Dear Lord, please let my fears not happpen.

 Always on the receiving end of stressful situations. I want to shout and say I'm suffering so much internally already so I don't need the negativity right now. That's the last thing I need now. If you really care about other people's welfare what about thinking about what other people are feeling while you have your meltdown and blame someone who did nothing but make personal sacrifices for all your convenience? I would if I can but I know better that unlike on TV, people baring their heart out does not really lead to quick solutions.  It does not lead to realizations but instead will be taken out of context to put it against you. I don't deserve to be treated this way and maybe someday you will realize the things you have done to me and how broken I am for so long. I made my peace with it and tried not to blame others for my own frustrations but moments like this make it so difficult

 It's so challenging to balance my work things and family matters. Like after I did errands, I was dead set to focus on finishing up this dubbing script and things were going well but some tension happened that I needed to sort out. It's so difficult to deal with this, what should I do first? It ruins my momentum too. But well I have no choice but to fix things and pacify everything.  But I reminded myself where we were a week ago to put things in perspective. I'm spent but still at least it's not the worst case scenario, I need to remind myself whenever things like this happen.

So far handling juggling so multiple work things good. Still on track. Hopefully, I can finish this one dubbing script tomorrow, a day before its deadline. If there are no distractions or I don't get lazy I think I can do it! I also have dubbing scripts to check too which I'm aiming to do on Sunday. I was glad to know the one person I was training had good feedback for her first script that was dubbed this week. She's a new graduate who is the niece of one of the admins. She's an honor student and it showed actually. Hard worker and does things on time. I do hope the way I trained her online also helped! I did want to be a teacher before especially for college and maybe I still can someday but currently, I don't have the drive nor the money to take a Master's Degree. But who knows someday, not closing doors.

I began working on this Christmas movie dubbing script and it gave me the holiday vibe already! I really hope and pray our holidays this year will be festive and stress-free! It's so me that I always think what could go wrong immediately after thinking of something happy.  Anyway, this dubbing script is not yet due anytime soon and I have other scripts that I needed to finish first but I decided to work on this already, at least have a start because I think it will boost my mood. Anyway, I plan to do a few minutes each night or two.

Full Plate

Hectic days ahead. Two dubbing scripts to finish plus checking some dubbing scripts done by others too. I was busy the past 3 days doing QC for two shows as well as editing episodes for the cable channel. We have new shows launching next month as well but good thing my video editor is handling that perfectly well. Traffic going home is quite bad these days because there's some road fixing going on as always! I can't help but feel so much time wasted when I could be more productive really! 
My load could have been lighter if I was able to do some things last weekend but it was an emotionally exhausting weekend so I was not able to do something productive. But hey remembering those terrible days is making me feel even more thankful how the past few days have been stable and less stressful. I hope please Lord let it stay that way.

 The Filipino-dubbed version of SQUID GAME is now out on Netflix! It's been great to be part of the dubbing team for this project!

Monday, August 01, 2022


 After a rollercoaster of emotions the past 4 days, today has been good thank God. Hopefully, it will stay that way. My faith definitely was shaken and challenged and I admit I felt like giving up but I cling on to hope for whatever little it may have. I still feel nervous that I don't want to be complacent like before but I really hope that challenging period has ended and we are truly on the road to recovery.
