IT'S ME!!!!!

I AM ALIVE!!!!!

I made it through the moooost hectic two months of my life to date. Assisted two - count them! - TWO Children's Musical Theater classes. One for 7 - 9 year olds and the other for 10 - 12. Love them, but all the stress kinda got to me. Steps scholarship for Jazz and Modern. Did the choreo for six classes, including Johan's version of a certain musical which is a prequel to the Wizard of Oz. And i still managed to squeeze in voice lessons. HAH!

Aladdin rehearsals start on the 5th. Johan's class' showcase is on the 3rd. So that gives me exactly... ONE day to relax and unwind. Great. T_T

but it's all good. amidst all that craziness, a silver lining: Last week, I was on a date. After what has been an eternity, I was finally on a date. And it was a pretty great one! Hurray for me!

Randomness

So, I handed in my agreement form for Aladdin na. I'm quite happy that I'll get to work again with a lot of people from mermaid. And a lot of people form blue rep. It's going to be a blast!

But for now, I'm just really psyched about Steps. Call me weird but I actually find it thrilling to look at the soles of my feet and see all the kalyos and the broken skin and the blisters that I get from dancing. It's like I'm suffering for my art. It's a nice, warm feeling. Hehe!

I still have a lot to learn, but I'm getting there. Most of my classmates in Steps have been dancing for several years now. I started to take dance classes, like, three years ago, but I stopped for two years. And that couple of years made all the difference. Some of the people who started almost the same time I did are way better dancers now. I regret not taking class for two years. But being surrounded by great dancers just makes me want to work harder and persevere more.

Starbucks has lost its magic for me. There was a time when I couldn't get enough of it. Now, I can't even finish a grande coffee jelly frap.

One venti mocha frappuccino has the equivalent of 16 tsps. of sugar. That's not exactly a good thing.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

got this from Rony:

Name ten of life's simple pleasures that you like most, then pick ten people to do the same.Try to be original and creative and not to use things that someone else has already used.

In no particular order:
  1. tuyo and garlic rice. YUM!
  2. doing a clean double pirouette. triple if i'm lucky.
  3. kwentuhan with my brothers and sisters.
  4. a gentle breeze on an otherwise hot day.
  5. taxi drivers who actually give you the correct change.
  6. getting unexpected texts and calls from friends.
  7. making tambay with good friends.
  8. the days when my curls are actually manageable ( those are few and far between)
  9. sneezing
  10. inside jokes

I don't know who reads my blog so... I tag anybody who does!!!!

I'm nearing my 21st birthday. It's really weird because suddenly, i seem to be contemplating more and more about the future. I tend to think of myself as a happy-go-lucky guy. If i ever plan my days, i can never get past a two-week period. And that's pushing it. I just live my days as they come.

But now, i'm actually worried about the future!

What actually triggered this phenomenon first was a conversation I had with tito Jaime. We were doing a show in tagaytay, and while we were having a smoke (yes, i know i should stop!), he suddenly asked me what i planned to do in the future. Of course, i said I had no idea! but i was kinda sure i wanted to do theater. he said that the logical next step for me was to do choreography. So, after 10 years or so of performing, i can choreo for shows.

I appreciate the advice. Really. I really enjoy conversations with him, coz you do learn a lot. But the first thought in my head was: "10 YEARS!!! I'LL BE OVER THE HILL IN TEN YEARS!!! NOOO!!!" I inwardly panicked coz, i had absolutely NO IDEA what i would do after one decade of theater. I mean, will i be able to provide for my family if i just do theater? Will i even get to do theater for 10 years?! I have no plan! It's terrifying!

So now, i'm faced with a work decision and i'm not sure what to do. There's an opportunity for me to do Aladdin for Rep and also possibly Jospeh for Trumpets. I'm just not sure what to do. Should i leave Trumpets for the time being, my theater home for the last 3 years? But are my roots deep in enough in Trumpets that if i start planting new seeds in Rep, I'll have something to come back to? And people in trumpets are just starting to notice me and what i can do - would it be wise to leave now?

Ont the other hand, it may not be wise to pass up a chance to work with Rep. Rep can really teach me a lot of things i should know if i want to succeed in theater. And this might be the only chance i get to work with them.

I really feel like my future for the next 2 years or so is hinged on this one decision. Over ba? but it's really how i feel.

And then there's also an audition for a musical theater or dance scholarship for the HK academy of performing arts happening this month that i would like to try out for. But i'm not sure if i really should go and do that.

HAY! EWAN!

Isn't it kinda funny when someone you know goes through something you've gotten over a long time ago?
I mean, not in a 'buti nga sayo' kind of funny.
But its funny coz it reminds you of how stupid you looked or were before.
For that moment in the past, that thing troubling you looked unsolvable. like pasan mo ang daigdig and all that crap. Sure, it was serious then.

And then you get over it.

And suddenly, you realize how utterly imbecilic you were. How you lost all faculties of reason and went all idiotic for a while.

but if you're really over it, you'll be able to laugh at the memory.
and hopefully help someone else get over their similar problem.
