Thanks to my tooth infection…

I want to thank my tooth infection as it:

  • Thaught me how nice life is without it
  • Made me watch “Cast Away” again just for the sake of the tooth removal scene
  • Made me not eat those chocolates so I lost 7lbs in a week.
  • Forced me to jumpstart living and
  • Reminded me how valuable not to have that pain.

Finished writing the new screenplay…

Yesterday, as I fell asleep for 5 hours midst of the day, I had to wrote 20 pages of screenplay for the pilot episode in four hours! What a speed! I hope it will work out well for the director and as well as the TV Channel. Today the director will show this new screenplay to the producer and the rest of it is wait for an answer.

After a week of silence… I am back…

Well, it was a horrific week with lots of toothache, headache, tooth infection, fever, sleepless nights, lots of painkillers, 4 different antibiotics in a row, severe diarrhea and gas due to that, many many visits to the dental hospital, severe doses of anesthesia, 3 hours long dental operation, lots of bleeding, severe bone infection, fight with the landowner about contract renewal, having less than 100$ on bank account, unnecesary calls from the ex’es on Valentine’s Day (I guess they call everyone on their lists, and I basically told them to fuck off), severe fatigue, severe depression…

One of the worst days revisited…

This toothache is killing me head.

Another round of antibiotics are killing my gut.

My landowner sent me an SMS “Increase the rent payment 100% or get out”

I feel so alone today. I cannot fix anything.

It “kinda” follows like the movie…

I have good luck and bad luck at the same time.

One after another. Last week my dream job offer came, then happened the urticaria. It was itching & burning like hell! I had a dentist appointment that I missed as of the severe and constant itching all over. Went to a doctor about it and he said: “We don’t know why urticaria happens. (Doctors, eh?) Just take these antihistamines. There is no cure (I know hun) but you can manage the symptoms.” Another auto-immune! Well, I took those antihistamines and they made me sleep all day and forgot about the dental problem.

Have news for you! The screenplay meeting with the director was amazing :)

This is my first time for writing a screenplay ever and the director said “Good job!”

Not certain yet, but I will probably be hosting the show!

The screenplay will be sent to the production firm on Monday and it will meet the project manager of the TV channel on Tuesday. Afterwards, we will wait for maybe 2 days maybe 2 months 🙂 Fingers crossed!

Today also one of my friends called and we talked for 2 hours. I missed girl-talk! Girlfriends are the best!

So far so good, and soooooo happy 🙂

Finished writing the screenplay of the pilot episode :)

Today, I will have a meeting with the director 🙂 I am so so so excited 🙂

As I try to write the screenplay down, which took 17 pages for the first episode, I had to learn about writing for screen. It was harder than I thought. However, this made me learn how to do it for my filmmaking project. So, if this documentary do not pass the producers, it will be ok for me as the time I’ve spent is worth it on the learning basis!

Love,

Movies To Watch List

Here is another inspired soul by my35project!
Good luck Camila 🙂

Illustrating Happiness

Hi guys,

Today I’m starting my “Movies To watch” List. I still Haven’t watched the “Schindler’s List” so I decided to create a list with the movies I really Want to see. I was also Inspired by My 35 Project that just finished her IMDB 250 list. I don’t go to the cinema that much so I usually watch them online. If you see some old movies don’t worry I’m just a bit late but that’s OK. I’m still updating this list so probably next Week I’ll have more movies to watch.

Movies to Watch:

I am a case study even worse than Cotillard…

I’ve just watched 2 Days, 1 Night movie starring Marion Cotillard, who was laid off during her sick leave as she was suffering from depression. She was informed informally by her coworker about this. Very similar to my case. But…

As I look back now, my case was far worse than her:

1. Economically, she was married and her husband also works, they own their own place and car, so no rent but a mortgage, which they can make a second mortgage or sell it as they own it.

I did not have anything, no car, no house and a high rent, not because my 50m2 flat is good but I live in a cosmopolitan city.

I did not have mortgage but had rent and payments of my PhD. I did not own anything worthy to sell.

So, economically I was worse off 🙂

2. Socially, she has people around her, a supporting positive-thinking husband who encourages her to fight for her job. I did not even have a boyfriend 🙂 She has two kids who are lovely. I do not even own a cat or a flower 🙂

3. Psychologically, my whole life was my career. For her, it was no more than a money-making job. I had major depression, was on sick leave for 3 days although she was for months. On the third day, I received an informal call like hers and they said “You are kicked out”. No voting, no chance to fight for it. It just happened. The worst thing was that, my so-called colleagues did not even say something against it. I was the one who had hired some of them. Can you believe that ?

It is like being stabbed from everywhere…

All the depression plus my auto-immune diseases including fibromyalgia, leaky gut, IBS, alopecia areata, urticaria, lichen planus plus candida, migraines, food allergies, fatigue etc. it is a miracle that I am still alive 🙂

Look where I am now. Quite a breakthrough? No, but maybe some breakthrough. At least, I am trying. Thanks to you, I have a reason to write. Some days were harder than the others for the past month, and those days, the only reason that I woke up was to write my blog and “try to try”. 

Thank you for making me wanting to try everyday…

Love,

Alex
