Second day at work was a lot different than the first day. There was so much work to be done, and my boss outlined all the schedules for the next 4 weeks. Talk about hectic. So much researching, so much booking, shooting, conceptualizing, and calling. It was really a busy 6 hours at the office/boss apartment. I actually wanted to de-stress by cleaning around the apartment, but my boss wouldn’t hear of it. It was a really amazing day though, and I learned a lot. Made a mistake today on the phone, but it was an awesome learning experience.
The only thing I didn’t like so much about today was the amount of smoke I inhaled, and when I mean smoke, like cigarette smoking. It was second-hand smoking. If you guys know me personally, especially since I was young, you’d know that I really detested smoke before I got to college. Now, I only endure the smoke, since a lot of my college friends (and now work friends) are smoking around me. Sadly, at my internship’s workplace, more than half of the people I work with smoke. And in the 6 hours I was at work, they finished about 2-4 packs (estimate). I can still smell the yosi (cigarette smoke) on me. Actually, after work, I headed over to my aunt’s place which is about 4 houses away, and hung out there while waiting for my driver. Upon arriving there awhile ago, the smell of yosi on me didn’t seem to bother me. In fact, I didn’t even smell it. But when I arrived home this evening, the smell suddenly struck me. My maid and even my mom mentioned that I stank of cigarette smoke. Despite changing clothes, the smell was still there. Took an hour’s nap, and it is still there.
Finally a friend mentioned that I had to wash my hair in order to remove the smell, which is what I’m going to do soon.
Besides that, glad that I’m learning a lot from this internship, despite it being just day 2 and despite the fact that my course is in no way related to broadcasting, comm, journalism or production. Though that is the case, the experience I believe I’ll be getting from this will really be a lot. Creativity and patience wise, a lot of this is needed, but I believe I can survive. Haha.
Oh, before I end this entry. The director of the show I’m working for, laughingly mentioned how soothing my voice is and how much he likes it. He now has a new nickname for me, pretty voice. Haha. This seriously comes as a surprise, since I’ve always kind of disliked my voice and thought that mine was a bit guy-ish in a sense (if you can put it that way). This was the first time that someone mentioned that my actual voice (not singing voice) is nice to listen to. Ending the day on a tired but happy note.
Oh and yes, please watch Storyline on ANC Channel (Channel 27 on Sky Cable) every Friday, 6pm or 11pm, with re-runs on Sunday at 3/330pm. Thank you! Last thing, my boss Patricia Evangelista rocks so much.
