How Not To Be Depressed Today By Watching A Bisaya Short Film


 You are heartbroken and you feel like there is no more life in front  of you. Your father is dead, and you are mentally ill.

You can no longer enjoy stuff like the good barbecue in Cafe Racer in Mandaue. You can no longer enjoy cat videos.

You used to like Razorback, but now you don't. And now you try even to listen to K-Pop, which didn't please you before but you're desperate so you try everything to become better.

You went to the Sugbo Mercado Bazaar and tried the Bacon Waffles and all you could think about was the pigs killed just to make people be happy.

You went to the APEC meeting and you felt like there was depression in every word being mentioned by the speaker.

What do you do to be happy?


1. Watch Bisaya Short Films
The Bisaya Short Films and other videos made by Bisaya people are filled with liberating humor that might increasingaly give you the extra days to want to live and find out what's causing your sadness. 

2. Watch videos by Medyo Maldito. Find the Filipino references in Broad City, a TV show so funny that there's no wonder why the Bisaya Short Films recommend it. 

3. Find the Bisaya Short Films guide on what new comedy videos to watch online that can make you happy. 

4. Read more fantastic elegant prose from Jessica Zafra in her blog because Jessica might have made some Bisaya Short Films that we don't know of and her secret videos could save you from the depression you currently enjoy right now. 

The only way to know whether she has them or not is to read her blog.

Below is a Bisaya Short Film called "Akin Ka Nalang Baby Pero Move On Na Ako". It's about a group of friends who went to Badian and composed their own music right on the spot, without rehearsal, and without editing.  

In this video, you are inside the mind of a person who is listening to their songs. Creators Luis Bunuel, Leos Carax and Woody Allen were in the mind of the director when this was made.

5. Go to a government hospital, tell a nurse that you feel like you're a threat to yourself, and you want the government's help to get you a psychiatrist.

Going to a psychiatrist is normal, although saying that It Is Normal implies that it isn't; do not overthink. There's no shame in being normal. Doctors are there to rewire your systems. Your serotonin and happy nerves are messed up, and doctors can get them fixed.
