Chaos. That's what has been up lately. I've been working at my new job for the past three weeks now and I'm finally starting to feel settled in the position. There are still moments where I remember that I'm new and make mistakes… but so far, I'm liking the job and the company and what I'm doing. There's a lot of flexibility (eventually) and I get to leave in time every day to continue doing things I love every other night of the week. My schedule has been full, weird, crazy, fun, tiring, etc. but I prefer it that way right now. That's the best way to get acclimated to a new city and life, right?
I've been having a lot of fun working on Our Two Minute Show. We meet twice a week to write/film everything for the following week's episode (or more, if we can). Every time we go to do it, I think "I'm so tired, I have no funny in me today" and I walk the (less than) 5 minutes it takes to get to Matt's (and fine, I drove once because I was super exhausted)(and fine, I mean lazy) and then I get there and I laugh a whole bunch and we start brainstorming and writing and I remember why I do what I do. Getting there really is half the battle, you guys. It's just funny because a Saturday that started at 1:30pm and ended at 1am was great and motivating for me… but a day that started at 7pm on Thursday, it would take all I had to get up and get moving. I'm crazy.
I've also been doing improv on Monday nights with my friends/ from Boston and a couple of guys in the iO training center. It's been awesome because I love doing/talking/watching improv. It reminds me every week of why I love (and totally fucking hate) it. Some scenes are so stupid in the best and worst ways. And last night we went out for chicken and waffles afterwards, so that was pretty awesome.
And I've made the decision to bring the white nails back a little early this year. I did them all summer last year and loved them, but felt like it wouldn't work past, say, Labor Day. But I live in California now, right? It's sunny all the damn time! Summery nails WORK YEAR ROUND!
So, that's what's up lately. Happy Tuesday.
