Have you ever seen one of those movies with a stuntman who jumps off a building and crashes through the carton of fruit, then keeps running in order to catch the bad guys? That’s about how I’m feeling right now. After a month and a half of red-eye flights, airport lines, and living out of my duffle, I’ve finally crash landed back in the Philippines. Even though I’ve finally got my shirts on hangers and my underwear folded up on shelves, I’m still charging ahead. We’ve only got a month and a half till the Edge/Emerge Redeem the Airwaves Conference here in Manila. That means lots of time at the office training the staff, organizing promotions, and creating the art and copy for the event. This has been one of the most hectic and most exhilarating times of my life. Much like a match striking on the side of the box, friction can light you up. I think it’s all about your expectations. Is this going to bog me down and wipe me out? Or is this going to test me and give me the chance to truly shine?
Here’s a few photos of my time here so far:
