Patty Lately

Last night, I was making the journey up my really terrible stairs after a very long and tiring day. Not that it was bad, it was a good day! A really good day. But I hadn't slept much the night before and was going non-stop from 9am to midnight. Anyway, I had this weird moment of awesomeness. I actually sort of lost my breath (not just because of the stairs) and just thought, "My life is pretty great right now." Why, you don't ask? I'll tell you!

I have a consistent group of friends that don't make me feel like shit or make me angry or annoy me. I was talking to a friend recently who had issues with some co-workers because they don't make genuine connections and only seem to be friends with people that can get them somewhere. I'm happy to say I'm not one of those people. And none of my friends are, either. I'm friends with people who just want to have a drama-free, good time. A lot of us work together, and do we vent frustrations often? Sure. But, for the most part, we're friends because we have deeper connections and a lot more to talk about than our common denominator. Even if that "deeper connection" is boys, cats or outfit pictures to see if I look okay before I go to work in the morning.

I started interning improv classes over the summer, and I've taught a few by myself, and I'm really surprised at how much I love it. The first time, I just kept thinking that I didn't know enough to tell these people how to do this. But, I've been doing this for 6 years at this point! And I do it SO much. Of course I know what I'm talking about. And I love talking about it. And it's helping me do better work. So, that has been incredibly rewarding and great for me.

I don't know. I feel like I'm in a good place. And that I've found my "niche." I'm happy with who I am, what I do, where I want to go and all of my interests. For instance, I downloaded a lot of Sam Cooke and Otis Redding music... so I've been listening to that non-stop and I'm not going to lie, it makes me pretty damn happy.

So, my life lately has been wonderful. Even if I look like weird ugly pictures sometimes.  But, right now, I'm feeling on top of the world. And I don't know if you guys feel it, but it's been a long time coming. But I know, I know... a change is gonna come. {Sam Cooke/Otis Redding reference! SLAM.}
