It's finally Friday!
It's finally Friday! Which means I am off tomorrow. Yay! I don't think I've looked forward to a weekend like this in a long, long time. A year? Maybe more?
I've only been back from Tokyo for a week, and it feels like it's been a month.
What in the world have I been doing?
Thu: arrive Taipei 22h30
Fri: meeting at the radio station in the morning, production work at the TV station in the afternoon
Sat: work on the infomercial at a production company in the afternoon, dinner with Musketeers
Sun: work at FTV (report on pizza place and production)
Mon: work at FTV (report on artsy internationals' hangout and production); pick up Vivian (old friend visiting from LA) after work to stay over in Danshui; finish story after bath; chat until both konk out
Tue: wake up early to transcribe nightmare informercial; zip into town and have quick lunch with Vivian; production work at FTV; translate English to Chinese three articles for a magazine after work
Wed: meeting in the morning with an animation company about script writing and voice over opportunities; get haircut; production work at FTV
Thu: reporting on modern art gallery/bistro and production work at FTV
Today: meeting at radio station in the morning; production work at FTV
I am tired! I have one day (tomorrow) to recharge before my circus act starts again.
My brother Michael wants to have breakfast at Yangmingshan (陽明山) tomorrow morning.
Then I have to go say hello to my print sensei at the art school on the other side of the county so that he won't disown me for good.
And then I have to go to dinner at one of the Musketeers' home again tomorrow. Ughhhh... If those ojisans didn't smoke, drink and act so dumb every time they get together, I think I would actually enjoy spending time with them. Guys will never grow up, will they?
I'm never going to get any rest. This past week, I realized that when I'm tired, I tend to eat, and eat a lot of sweets too. It's terrible. I'm getting ugly, fat and grumpy. I have to figure out a better way to do this. I must work smarter and faster!
I'm very very much looking forward to Chinese New Year, which won't come for another two weeks...
