It had been a month already since my last legitimate post was published, and that was even sponsored, so it was not the kind of post which I just felt like writing. I am still perplexed why I took such a long idle, it had only been months ago since I felt like my blog was the best thing I have ever had my in entire life and I was more than fine on making love with it until the last day of my life. But then, I am a girl (and is making baby steps to become a woman!), and that fact pretty much entails a great amount of indecisiveness, and I have got nothing against that. So...
I am lying at my back looking at the sky, realizing how such great forces can be ephemeral. And what more am I?
Sorry. I just have to.
Away from the stars (why there is not even a single star in the sky right now) here are some of the stuff I have been up to lately. I never really did stop writing, and heaven knows what could have happen to me if I did.
Perhaps a few of you noticed that I put down my interview article with Mikhail Red about his upcoming Cinemalaya entry Rekorder. Well, I was not being brat or anything. The thing is, Rappler was so nice for letting me contribute on their Move.Ph entertainment section. It really did feel good, but honestly, I just wanted to give Mikhail Red's Rekorder the attention it really deserved. I have not seen a film as ambitious as his since Heaven knows when.
My editorial about the presumed death of OPM and my interview with Ang Bandang Shirley had brought me this. Basically, I started as spectator and went on writing some (practically invisible) profiles... then the next thing I knew was that I am already the Profiles Editor of Pindiemusic. Lucky!
3. Freelancer and Odesk
I had been accepting random writing jobs as well. They were easy, but a bit overwhelming especially when I have had this employer who made me write articles about everything, non-stop! It was really painful for me, not because I could not do it, but because I always take my writing as something sacred and special, so you cannot just get me rushing with my pen!
Two (highly contrasting) literature subjects, translation, a language subject which feels like an introduction to our doctorate degree, and a few minor subjects who simply do not get the sense of the word "minor". Need I say more? I am not remorseful though, I wanted this.
5. Growing up
Well. I need some time to prepare myself to the great cross over.
I cannot really promise a comeback, and I do not take this thing as such. But I am here, and will always be.
