C5... 24/7; Nakakahawa

Infamous na ang kumikinang na bunbunan ni Jay-R dahil sa 24/7 campaign ng Sun Cellular. Ang galing nga naman nun, unlimited, kahit mapudpod na ang daliri mo eh hala, text lang ng text.

Pero hindi naman tungkol sa kanya ang entry na ito eh. Pake ko ba dun eh mas magaling naman akong kumanta sa kanya.

What I meant was, 24/7 na akong working for Canto Cinco (C5), our little choir over at the Jesuit Music Ministry. At nakakaadik na, as in sana may magpigil na sa akin. Feeling ko tuloy may trabaho na ako, wala nga lang kapalit na moolah.

To give you an idea of how draining it was for the past week, here is a timeline:

MONDAY: Focus Group Discussion with Bukas-Palad Music Ministry for the 1st ever annual Choir Convention event in celebration of BP's 20th(?) anniversary to be held sometime this year.

TUESDAY: Vocal training with Jomar Ferreria at the CLC Building

WEDNESDAY: Practice for the Baccalaureate Mass of the Ateneo College Graduation with members from Bukas-Palad, Hangad, ACMG, Kinema and us Canto Cinco

THURSDAY: Supposedly rest day. However, Canto Cinco sung at the UP Engineering Student Council Induction of Officers. Watched Constantine with fellow C5 members Abbey and Persia sa Metro East.

FRIDAY: Was awoken by Fr. Jboy to work on the Marian Album Concept Paper and the modules for the Liturgical Music Seminar we were going to give on the 23rd of April at Angeles, Pampanga. Spent the whole day with Abbey, Persia and Tricia at the Loyola House then off to choir practice at the CLC building. Had a very memorable "back-stabbing" activity.

SATURDAY: More work on modules and the concept paper. This time at Starbucks Libis. Still with Abbey, Persia and Tricia. Fr. Jboy treated us to dinner at Something Fishy in Eastwood. Yummy. :)

SUNDAY: Canto Cinco, together with the UP CSC sung in the 11am Student Mass at UP Diliman Parish of Holy Sacrifice. Had lunch with 14 choir members at Mang Jimmy's in Balara. Then off to Jesuit Communication, Sonolux building for a 4-hour training for the Liturgical Music Seminar. AND then, with Abbey, Persia and Precious, stayed at Starbucks Katips for another 3 hours brainstorming about Canto Cinco stuff.

Hay... adik na nga ako. At ang gastos no? But you know the best part of all this?

I'M LOVING IT. C5 24/7!


Hm.. nakakahawa ang mga lola ko dito sa bahay. Wala kasi silang ginagawa sa buong araw kundi manood, kumain, humiga at matulog eh. So ako, ganun din. Sabi nga ni Ate Henny kanina kina Lola, "Ganito na lang ba palagi? Ang boring ng buhay natin."

Rest day kasi ngayong araw na ito, well, at least from Canto Cinco work. I planned to work on my resume to make it a wee bit more shiny (you know, for more callbacks) but I guess I really wanted to rest.

I woke up at around 10:30. Spent the day pounding on my cellphone and straining my eyes in front of the TV. Wish ko lang naka-Sun ako at ang kausap ko pero hindi eh. Anyway, watched Queer Eye and the Tonight Show during lunchtime then Sabrina on HBO. Then off to dreamland for a 2-hour siesta. Spent 3-hours on the phone when I woke up at 6 (had dinner while on the phone too.) Then I worked on my resume and now, blog.

Ang sarap ba ng buhay bum? Hindi no. Boring.

Need work ASAP. You guys need a lounge singer? :p
