So, the flu has caught up with me. The rains, the cold nights, and maybe I will attribute some of it to the stress. I’d hate to admit it, but yes, the stress is a factor.
So, when you’re feeling sick, what do you do? You take a selfie. It’s bullshit, I know, but I don’t think selfies are all that bad. It’s when your whole social media page is filled with nothing but selfies that it gets annoying. I’d like to pretend that this is an anti-selfie, where you take a photo of yourself when you aren’t feeling a hundred percent. Or, the flu has gotten to my brain and I am not thinking straight.
All my friends were at The XX concert yesterday in Manila and I missed it. I actually had a ticket but I couldn’t make it because I didn’t want to risk getting worse. I had actually seen The XX live in Singapore back in February of 2010 and I know how good they are live. But, considering all the photos from that night, it’s good I didn’t go because the place was packed to the brim. I probably would have caught something else there and made my situation worse. So, I guess, it’s all good.
I have another day to rest and really just focus on getting better because I have a pretty important meeting on Friday that I cannot — do not — want to miss. Sleep is going to be my best friend for the next two days.
I’m almost done with all my peripheral work. After this week, I think I’ll take a step back from accepting any articles that need to be done so I can focus on the scripts that I’m supposed to write. I’ve got quite a few in the coming months and I just want to work on those first. All the hard work I’ve been doing is paying off and I think I’ll be okay financially for the next two months. So, I can take a break and just do this. Scripts. Time to make movies. Onward, forward, go.
But short term goal: get better. Or I’ll take another selfie or something.
