Visual Diary: Kapuso Artistambayan 2019

Cheers to the wonderful memories made along the way and looking forward to the many many more to be created down the road. I guess that’s how I would describe my New Year 2019. It’s both eventful and uneventful. It took me quite a while to process what was going on, but ultimately, I decided to take the leap. After all the introspection and prayers, of course. 🙂

The leap meant that I had to let go of some beautiful things not because they stopped being precious, but because I’ve realized that you can’t catch new blessings when your hands are full or preoccupied with something else. It was also an acknowledgment that no matter how beautiful something is, a time will come when you must take a step forward to grow. And to grow sometimes mean leaving something behind in order to chase more dreams and opportunities. It can be nerve-racking. Hey, adulting, is this you?

The New Year, the decision to let go, both are big events themselves. And like customary events that have been part of you, and have been valued all these years, it was difficult, even painful to leave them behind.

And just as I was sentimental of the things that were, Kapuso Artistambayan came. Thanks to a dear friend who gave me a heads-up (Hello, Irish if you’re reading this! haha!) Didn’t God say He will provide? Or is that something we had been making up to find comfort in all the uncertainty life throws at us? Haha.

I’m glad to be part of this online show. Our hosts have been warm and welcoming, and like all those I have worked with, it’s always a continuous learning process for me as a writer to be interacting with and learning from my hosts. I’ve learned a lot from them and from everybody on the set.

Joyce Pring and Andre Lagdameo host the show and we go live twice a month on Facebook. With that kind of work schedule, I could say this has been the most chill phase I’ve had in recent memory. I’ve always been non-stop working the past years and now, I’m just coasting along? Then I remember I have my MA Film classes, too! Haha!
