It was recently brought to my attention by the folks at Storycorps that my post about my recent and infamous habit of sleeping late and losing jobs doesn’t exactly put me in a favorable light.  So, I figured I should update and clarify my behaviors.

After exactly one year of being in New York City –  a year that I’ve been told can “make or break you” and indicate whether or not this city is the love of your life  – I’m gradually returning to my old self.  My scholastic, self-deprecating, under-slept self.  But in a good way.  I’ve sewed my wild oats, as they say – or at least most of them.

I’m at that point in life where I need to start focusing on the things I love and want to accomplish more than anything else.  Hence, why I applied for this internship and nailed it (despite them reading my earlier blog posts about irresponsibility, tardiness, and termination).

I am returning to that feeling of excitement, thrill and fear that you get when your brain can’t stop inventing and creating.

And I am so damn excited about it.  Wish me luck.

Well I did it again.  I failed to blog for two three four almost FIVE months.  The lack of legitimate deadlines will be the bane of my creative writing existence.

I will first attempt to sum up the month of April, a month in which Mercury was in retrograde and therefore made my life feel like an hourglass turned upside down.  Not because time was flying by, but because it felt like a whirlwind.

March 31, 2010

I’m fired!  (From my 9-5 pants suit job because I overslept twice)

April 1st

I’m hired!

April 11th

I’m fired (Because I overslept twice  – notice a pattern?)

So, I decided to embrace this freedom and do the following:

After that, who knows what happened??  The past few months have been a beautiful smoggy haze.

Los Angeles at dawn.

It’s a bizarre thing to study something passionately for four years and later realize, “Man, I don’t want to do this.”

I am sure  hundreds upon thousands of people are feeling the same way, but I was pretty sure I knew my plan.

And now I don’t.

Don’t get me wrong – I’m not feeling self-loathing or severely confused on a day-to-day basis; it’s just a trip to finally figure out that your goals at one point in life are not necessarily your goals down the road.

Re-reading what I just wrote, this all sounds like a “no kidding” moment, but for me, this is a truly poignant moment in the aging process.  To rethink your entire future is amazingly exciting but unsettling.

So, from this point on, these are my inspirations, as I try to figure out what the F is going on:



welcome to my current frame of mind!  I am going to seriously attempt to keep up with transcribing my life for ya’ll surfers.

ciao ciao.

Leslie Mann is lucky I love her because this movie was lit-er-ally painful to sit through.

What was Judd thinking?  Two thumbs up to LM for being adorable and charming as usual.

To the rest of the cast – shame on you.
