I joined another songwriting contest

Dear Mama,

I joined another songwriting contest. This time it's the ABS-CBN's Himig Handog Songwriting Competition. I submitted again the song I wrote for her, Mama. I know I have a very slim chance given the poor quality of my voice and the recording, but you know my reason why I am submitting the song, Mama. It's for her to hear it once it gets played on national TV.

After losing in the PhilPop songwriting contest, I was already having second-thoughts if I should still join the contest in Channel 2, but I figured that if I didn't try, I will never win. I will never have the chance, right? Or am I just dreaming again, Mama?

I also saw another opportunity, Mama. Channel 2 will be holding a scriptwriting workshop and it will be for free. But they will screen the participants, Mama. I just hope I will have a chance, because from their requirements, they might be prioritizing those with scriptwriting background. However, I will still try my luck, Mama. I will submit an application form and just hope for the best.

One problem is that, the workshop will be for three months, I just don't know if it would be a stay-in workshop or a weekend workshop. It would be a good experience if it would be a stay-in workshop, but I cannot afford to be without income for 3 months, Mama. I hope it's a weekend workshop so I can join. Oh well, I'm still not sure if I would be qualified anyway.

That would be all for now, Mama. Thank you for listening to me. I really miss you, Mama. I could use a hug right now. Take care of yourself. I miss you Mama.

I love you.
