176-186: MONTAGE

Okay... I haven't been able to blog in weeks. I meant to when I got back from the States last, last Saturday but unfortunately, my net has been down in the house since then and I've had to go to other places to use it. Well, if anything, my trip to US proved to be very useful to me. I got my well-deserved R&R before it's back to reality and back to the real world of Manila.

If I were to sum up where I am at this point in my life, it would have to be that I'm very happy that I'm doing what I love to be doing, and I'm very happy to be accomplishing what I set out to do for myself. It's not stuff that piles up in my things-to-do, and I play catch up to my own procrastination... rather, I am able to actually accomplish things, big things, huge things, and that's one under my belt.

I am definitely seriously about resurrecting my writing career because I put it on hold for the last five months. So now, I'm seriously doing something about it. I will write and write because I am a writer. I know I'm a good writer so I can't allow myself to be rusty. And of course, my duties to 9 Works Theatrical, I will keep at it because we're on a roll... we have momentum, so we have to ride it and play our cards right, and hopefully find and secure a place in the Philippine Entertainment scene.

I also started already with my obligations with Blue Rep. I'm directing the newbie prod and I have the most amazing team behind me. This is the first time I'm directing something... on my own. I'm calling the shots. So it was weird and nerve-wracking at first... but now I'm settling into. I'm more excited now than scared. And I think that's a good thing.

I'm very happy with MY life right now. And I should continuously thank God for all the blessings and graces he continues to shower me. Without him, I am nothing...

BROADWAY REVIEW
Rock of Ages
RATING: 5 / 5

At first, I was like... ummm... okay lang. And then I started to get really into it. The songs are great. The story is great. And it's so friggin' hilarious. I'm so excited for my friend Chari to direct it for Atlantis next year. I got her a shirt fitting for next directorial endeavor after Legally Blonde. Anyway, the musical features songs from the 80s. So think Journey and the token Don't Stop Believing capping everything off in the end.
