I'll save the really mushy sappy stuff for email but for now let me say that I am so fucking glad that we are friends and although this month I've been incredibly terrible with the communication, I don't think I would have gotten through any of these past couple of years without your friendship. You're fantastic and wonderful and talented and such an awesome friend, and I sincerely hope that you have the best day ever.
In other news, life has been super productive over here in Sydney. Have managed to almost finish the entirety of the Borromeo book's final draft, which is good because the layout is due on the 17th, so yeah. Mostly I am super busy right now interviewing some of the family members here in Australia, and for the most part, my life will be hell up until Easter and maybe a little bit afterwards, but OMG you guys. I am actually writing and publishing a book, however small a scale it is. Getting out of the Philippines has done wonders for my productivity. (The lack of Internet probably also plays a major factor. As does the fact that most of my shows are on hiatus).
I've also really enjoyed getting to know the city again, even if my feet hurt a little bit. Seeing Bondi again, seeing the Bridge and Circular Quay and eating at Pancakes on the Rocks and shopping in Paddy's Market and playing in the fountains in Darling Harbour and whatnot- it's like the whole year I spent here is rushing back. I've missed the food, the ease of public transport and just walking around the city without a map and realizing that I still remember where everything is. LOL. Go figure. I was even able to pick up a replacement hoodie for the USyd one I lost a couple years back. (PS, going about my old university was a little trippy, won't lie. But it was really fun too.)
Also, FUCK YEAH, Fringe got renewed for S4. Thank goodness. Jasika confirmed it on her Tumblr with the hilarious tag of "season 4 = astrid goes to prom" (and seriously, you have to love the interaction that fans have with the actors and creators, because bless her, she actually responds to the questions people leave in her ask box). But seriously, I'm so happy about this, I could scream.
So I am doing well. It's been a really good couple of weeks for me, and I feel like my head is centered again and I know what I want to do with my life. It's a really great feeling, and I hope it continues to last. May 2011 continue to be the year of positive change for me.
