I'm only gonna do one liners today, period. Cause I ran out of pantiliners on the way here.
That joke would make more sense if I was a woman. I'm probably getting only 70% of the laughs I would have gotten because I'm a man.
I've been killing it at open mic comedy for the past few weeks, I recently switched to a one-liners-only style that makes me impervious and flexible to rowdy bar crowds. Man, it feels good. Without really intending to, I've realized it's been my main creative outlet and the only thing I've really gotten better at in the last month.
There's two open-mics a week (at the bar I made a website for), and it's been a nice place to hang out. I still don't really know people there, so sometimes I just won't talk to anyone and just go up on stage, but people are recognizing me, and I'm making steps to break out of my shell. I'm kind of making it my goal to get to know people there when I get up tonight.
I have to sit down tonight because I messed up my feet on an early morning run. I never thought I'd be able to, but I also never thought the police would find my meth lab.
I fucked up my feet on a long walk awhile ago. They've hurt for a whole week and a half now, at least while standing. I'm pretty sure it's because I still keep walking on them. Today is the first day that they've actually felt like they've been healing, so I'm glad about that.
I just told my therapist that I was going to do stand up comedy tonight. He said, yeah, that's perfect for you, your life is a joke.
A thing about pubskis is that it coincides with when I visit my therapist, so it's like I get a double dose of therapy on the same day. I'm a little irritated at my therapist today though. The theme since I've been seeing him is to embrace my hobbies, even though most of them are online. He's did a complete 180- you gotta stop spending so much time on the computer. I know that he's someone who's a drug counceler, and I don't know, I thought the entire point of my therapy sessions was to relieve myself of guilt so I could spend more time on work, but hell. Alright. The computer screen is cocaine now.
My favorite city in Alaska is Juneau. It's the place where tourists get off cruise ships and look at the mountains and say "This is it? They have this back in New York!"
Things. I booked a trip impulsively recently, and now I have a ticket to Spokane I won't use, and I didn't buy the travelers insurance. But that's alright.
I got accepted into an innovation sprint for ocean technology in Alaska. It's kind of weird because I'm a designer working with engineers and marine biologists and people more qualified than me, but I'm excited to bust out my college skills again. I do have to stay here for a month.
A friend from the debate team is offering me a digital media job at the governors office in Juneau. Juneau really is my favorite city in Alaska. I'm currently procrastinating from sending him my portfolio, which I really should be doing. I hope I can get my shit together.
