Before Pandemic:

My schedule was very unpredictable before the Quarantine. I’m balancing both work and school, I can only know the schedule for sure on the day itself, if not a day or two before. Taping days for regular shows are a different case though! We have regular days of the week like a Monday, Wednesday and Friday schedule but it still depends.


New Normal:

I get to focus more on school no that the demand for location shoots has been compromised. That’s why I’m able to take up more units compared to before. I miss it though! I got used to the stress that comes with trying to balance everything. I suddenly had a lot of free time. At one point, it started to feel like something wasn’t right.

Hopes for the Future:

The lockdown made me think a lot. Re-arranging priorities felt like the right thing to do. I think our generation is capable of adapting to the “new normal” quite well. Realizing this made me want to try new things like music production and other simple things like learning a new recipe. For plans, I don’t have anything concrete just yet but I’m working on it. I’m just trying to enjoy the journey every step of the way!
