It’s Friday! So you know what time it is. It’s time for Miguel’s Friday Thoughts. I hope all of you are having a great day. If you are having a terrible day, take a deep breath, and remember that it’s only one bad day, not your whole life. I’m having a great day. Let me share with you about of my thoughts that have been going on this week.
Lebron James became a part-owner of the Boston Red Sox. There’s no doubt that Lebron is an intelligent businessman. If I remember correctly, he said before that he’s trying to own a team. He’s going to get his chance now, but why the Red Sox Lebron? Ugh! As some of you may know, I’m a Yankee fan for life. So you know how heated the rivalry is. However, my feud with the Red Sox is healthy. There’s no need to take it to heart to the point where you will harm someone. Congrats to Lebron on this achievement! I wish it could’ve been somewhere else. It would’ve been wonderful if he were to chose the Indians. Cleveland needs more leadership from him than Boston. Cleveland deserves a championship in Baseball.
Earlier today, I go to sign in to my production company page on Instagram. I get an unexpected message from a film festival that I’ve submitted two of my films back in January. On top of that, both of those films got selected. When I see this message, this particular festival said that if I’m not following their page, they will unfollow me. If I want to follow them, then please submit to their film. I’m paraphrasing what this festival said. I was surprised to read this because I have never seen a film festival approach a filmmaker that way. It made me lose trust and respect for this festival. I was already following them on Instagram, and I already submitted my film there. Also, I never knew whether my film got nominated, won, or finished as a Finalist after the official selection process. I needed to find out on my own when I went to their website. I didn’t waste my time arguing or anything like that, but I won’t waste my time submitting there anymore. I pay attention to a lot of things about any film festival. When you are running a film festival, there needs to be strong communication with the filmmakers/producers and have mutual respect.
