Bad And Good News

Posted by Ruok On August - 25 - 2006

First the bad news.

The flurry of auditions that I had attended in the past few months have all come to naught. I think my rejection rate, both in reel and real life, is so high that I often wonder why “rejection” is not my middle name (maybe it is, just that I’m not using the right lighting to see it). Had I have gotten some of the roles, it would have fallen nicely into my recently opened up schedule.

Which brings me to the next piece of bad news; I was not able to secure projects for my “other” business for the next month. Although there’s a chance something may still land in the next two weeks, nonetheless, this current state of affairs just made me disconsolate.

And in my distress at being really totally unemployed for the first time in a long time, I think I might have hastily accepted a role that I wasn’t too keen on doing. But just as I was kicking myself, I also realised that it has been ages since I did something for Chinese drama. So in a way, its kinda good to show my face and let them know that I’m still alive and kicking. 😛

I guess the worst part of all this is that it just tipped the scales of me returning to corporate life higher. Aye, I see the U-turn sign looming again. Worse, I see people who might offer me a ride back appearing near the sign already. It will prolly take me the next few months to reach that sign. I hope by then I would have found another route to continue this journey…

Oh. I almost forgot…. the good news.

I’d just received my biggest paycheck for a single day shoot. And so as Duckhawk would say, my tau ghey (beansprouts) just became more expensive. 😉

A bit of cheer amidst the gloom,
a bit of hope despite my fears.

Update : Turned down the role cuz the film dates clashed with a friend’s wedding. Heh.
