at the end of the day

tired. sleepless. hungry.

very bad combination i must say. but at least, i'm finally going home.

i edited three segments for this saturday's episode for almost 12 hours. we finally finished mastering and effects about an hour ago. i was still supposed to shoot in Encantadia's set in Pasig for an advance segment but i begged off because i could hardly keep my eyes open. i've been awake almost 24 hours.

turns out, kernan is there because they're shooting for extra challenge. made me think if i should have gone. but i guess it's okay, at least he'll miss me for today. actually, i miss him already.

anyway, the episode seems power packed and i feel a sense of accomplishment. it's not perfect but we worked hard for it. i really hope we'll win the ratings this weekend.

sometimes, no matter how good we think the episode is, the ratings still determine whether we win or lose. i used to think it's unfair that we have to be so dependent on ratings but that's how it works in TV. even if you think you have a good show, if it doesn't rate, you'll still get axed.

sad but true.

the things i give up for my job
last night, mai texted me about the reunion of our 6th grade class. one of our classmates came home from malaysia and wanted to meet and catch up.

unfortunately, since i was tied down to my editing, i couldn't go. for the second time. during the first reunion they held, i was busy too.

another classmate from highschool texted me about a reunion months ago. we were seatmates and close friends for a year in notre dame for girls school in marbel, south cotabato. we gradually lost touch when our family moved back to manila. that reunion could have been the first time we would meet again and catch up in almost 8 years! i wasn't able to go because i had an overnight out of town shoot.

i can't even propose a reunion because i'm afraid i'm gonna back out of the schedule i set any minute because of work.

i'm sad because there are really times when i have no choice but to give these things up. i don't even want to think what i'm missing. i'm gonna be even more sad if i do.

Rest, sleep and have food, may be the simple answer. But I know this is as simple. You have to have a lot of compromises in between. And those compromises are the life. Live it. Nice post.

most of the time, we know the answers to our own questions and the solutions to our own problems. but sometimes, we just need someone to remind us.

thanks, shirazi!

Your comments on Light Within (with thanks) ref: May be the task of spreading love and peace in the world is not as easy but we all can try. It will sure make a difference. No?
