Una sa lahat, thank you sa lahat ng taong bumati sakin sa Twitter, Facebook at text ng “Haberday, Happy Beerday, Happy Birthday, at mga personal greetings (dahil close ko sila)” syemps, lalo na sa mga hinintay na mag-alas dose para batiin ako. Sige na nga, pati yung mga tamad-tamarang binati ako ng “HBD” thank you na rin. Haha! Sareeee. I just don’t get the point of greeting somebody HBD, nag-effort ka na rin lang, i-full force mo na. Don’t worry, prinsipyo ko to sa maraming bagay, except lang kapag tinatamad ako or I’m out of inspiration. 🙂
Umaga. Bago umalis ng bahay.
Cat: Poi, batiin mo na si Shei. Aalis tayo mamaya. Hindi ka kasama pag di mo siya binati.
Ako: Hanggang gabi shoot ko.
Cat: Ay. Di nga kami magsasaing e! Anu ba yan. Poi wag mo an siya i-kiss di naman pala tayo aalis.
Umaga. Dianne called telling me that the morning shoot was cancelled. K
Umaga ulit. Late ako sa seminar na speaker si Ms. Kara. Pero sa call time lang. Haha! Had fun with the Researchers’ Seminar Training with her wit and vast experience. Sa dami ng sinabi niya, na-uplift ang spirits naming mga researchers, I bet! Very enlightening and nakakatalino ang seminar na yun, nakaka-inspire na gumawa ng gumawa pa kahit na hindi ikaw ang unang-unang nako-commend kapag maganda ang episode, pero ikaw ang unang unang napapagalitan kapag may pumalpak sa episode. Alam yan ng lahat ng researchers, at ng mga taong naging researchers! But will have to talk about that seminar in another post, probably in my long forgotten “So Gusto Mong Maging Researcher Series” na hindi na nasundan.
Here we are having lunch. I was telling the girls na mag-enjoy sila sa hinanda kong kaalaman at pagkain! Hahaha!
Too bad, I have too many requirements and deadlines that I need to beat so after Ms. Kara’s talk, I went out and coordinate for the shoot later that day. Good thing Corinthians allowed us to shoot the intro for one of my shows even if my permission was superrrr late. Our artist also said yes with the BBB interview, so yay!
Off to Sta. Mesa to pick up the drum set for the shoot, grabbed photos needed for the Protégé Saturday webisode, coordinate for the pending Powerhouse requirements I needed, get the CD from ABS CBN for the Buddy’s episode and off to Corinthian Gardens at 8:00 pm for Follow That Star intro shoot.
Shoot ended at 10 PM.
Crew greeting me a happy birthday and singing a happy birthday song, lasing version.
Crew telling me: Ang lungkot mo naman Mina. Malungkot ka ba kami kasama mo ngayong birthday mo? Hahaha. Not really. Just super duper tired with all the things I had to do yesterday.
At isa pa, ginusto ko naman talaga ang trabahong ito. Walang pumilit sakin. Kaya I must deal with it. I would have many more birthdays to come pa naman. If this birthday is full of hectic skeds, there will be real happy birthdays, shitty birthdays, no money birthdays, mayaman ako birthdays and the whatnot. I’m saying, bring it on! If life’s a bitch, well, you haven’t met me yet. I’m a bigger and a better bitch than you are. You do know I’d take you, any time of the day, right?
But as I’ve mentioned before, I’m trying to be the glass half full kind of girl. So here are the 10 things that I am thankful for:
- Waking up with birthday greetings from people that I love.
- Learning a lot on my birthday from Ms. Kara’s talk
- Being able to swallow my pride for the nth time, just so Corinthian Gardens would allow us to shoot.
- Pulling off and finally finishing our (Dianne and I’s) episode.
- Kiligers with the birthday greetings from krases.
- Accomplishing a lot yesterday. And the year before that. One year in the network, yeahba!
- Having work, and loving it, even if I have to work on my birthday!
- Seeing and having my picture taken with Echo! Yeahba!
