I’m turning twenty four tomorrow! Yikes. I am turning twenty four. One year to go and i’m about to say hello to my silver year on planet earth. I am thankful i’m still alive and kicking!
To be honest, i’m quite bored. When I turned 23, i had so much positive vibe in me. I love being busy doing the things i am passionate about. Unfortunately for now, i am here in my room stuck the whole day trying to do something productive. I have colds and i think my ear problem is back. Aside from that, i’m bored. Boredom is a disease that kills.
I browsed through my wishlist last year and i’m glad because some of it came true. There’s the surprise kiddie party prepared by my closest blogger friends for me (Grimace, clap your hands!), my film showing at PenPen Restaurant (Pen Medina ftw!), new blog theme that really suits me (thanks to the Lajara sisters!), coffee and dinner dates. When you look back, you realize that you write these wishlists, but it’s still up to you if you will make it happen. Your family and friends are there for you, but it’s up to you pa rin talaga hehehe 😛
I would like to travel more this year not for leisure, but to possibly shoot my films. I’ve done a number of short films using my LX3 camera for Project52Weeks and i can say that i was pretty successful with that. Unfortunately though, i failed to start on time this year. It’s never too late, i think. I MIGHT restart the whole P52W this month. Let’s see. I want to document my travels, do interviews and do short but sweet short films.
Since I have three short films under my belt (Kuya Bunso, The 12th of June and Positive), i am now thinking of turning one of the screenplays i wrote into a short film. I want to do a romance-comedy this time then eventually go full-length. I may not have a degree from a reputable film school (i only managed to enroll in a Basic Scriptwriting workshop via Sinelab three years ago), but i can say that I CAN MAKE IT WORK. I am talking to a friend via Skype as i type these words and let’s just say that i am inspired to go and take the leap. Focus is all i need for now… and funding.
So there. For my 24th birthday, i will not request for a birthday party, a gadget (not as techie as you think) or a love life (not unless you’re worth fighting for LOL). I will make another film 😀
A friend of mine suggested that I add a ChipIn widget here. Hopefully, this works. The proceeds might not go to a charitable institution, but i assure you that i will make a good film out of this. I am a work in progress and i’m hoping you will help me out with this one Happy Birthday to me 😀
