Shit happening

Have you been in a situation where you can't help it but wish you shouldn't have been there in the first place? A friend aptly puts it, "Shit! napasubo ako dito."

Yeah, it feels shitty...

singing my body exhausted...

After having straight five-weekday shoots for three weeks, my body said enough.

I almost fainted while walking to Paul's car last night. He decided to take me to his house instead. Upon reaching his place, I only got to change shorts and dozed off. I woke up this morning with a 38 degrees C temperature.

I went home after lunch. While having dinner last night, my neighbor called that my unit was flooded because my bidet gave-in. The bathroom mat did nothing but to clog the drain making the water flow on the living room to the hallway of the the sixth floor. I came home with a wet rug. I will fix all these tomorrow. I'm tired.

Maybe I should really take it slow.

Maybe I should.

Non-writer's angsts #3

"May blog ka pala?!"

I received this greeting from three different people three days in a row now. Receiving such, I felt like how they sounded- pretty much surprised.

"Nagsusulat ka pala!"

From one of the three. I was quite puzzled of the comment. Yet flattered at the same time. It is funny how people would gauge you basing it on your usual work. Mine for example is styling-- tinkering with inanimate objects (good thing they don't complain), making them look good, arrange them for the camera and shoot. Then wrapping them back again. I guess, a lot in the place where I'm working see me as that. A mere stylist. And if they find out that you are doing something apart from what they see, they get surprised. Some, even bothered. I used to hear a friend telling me to focus and just do one thing and be good at it. She has a point. Yet in my case, doing a lot of things-- different things makes my life more chaotic and therefore more fun. Monotony after all, is the curse of the professional life.

"Galeng! Galing mo magsulat!"

I have to admit, this can make my day. I just hope the two did it not to flatter me. Yet even if they did, it will still make my day. Ok admittedly, I'm a love-sick-frustrated-writer. Shamelessly admitting the fact, I am greatly offended and my ego drops to the Marianas trench everytime I am being told na hindi ako marunong magsulat.

Marunong akong magsulat. Mali lang ang spelling. Mahina sa grammar.
Pero marunong akong magsulat. Hindi lang magaling.
