The Reason

Just about a year and a half ago, I was so ready to quit television.

Working in television production made me realize what an incredibly strenuous industry it is. The stress, insomnia, eyebags, erratic weight gain and loss along with a barely above minimum wage salary just didn't seem worth it. After all, call center agents experience the same things but they walk away every payday with fatter wallets and full stomachs.

When the time came for me to find a new job, I decided I've had enough with television. Working in production taught me a lot of things, and it was made even more special by the fact that worked for something I love - basketball. Not to mention work with one of the best production crews ever. But that was it. I'm done. And I'm also never going to work in Makati again.

Or so I thought.

Now I'm back to square one - working for a tv company in Makati, two things that I swore to myself I would never go back to. It's been barely two months and I've already had my share of ups and downs, highs and lows, high stress weeks and low loads. And I'm guessing that there will be more to come.

So why do I stay here?

I guess the answer is behind me, on our living room television that is tuned in to ETC.

Seeing something you spent hours staring in front of a computer screen being aired on national tv.

It's the best damn feeling in the world. :)
