Stand up!

Oh that's right! I finally did it! I did my first stand up comedy performance last Tuesday (18 Sept. 2007)!! It was awesome! Ahaha I had a great time, there was a diverse range of comedians from those that talk about personal experiences to others than retell recent news with a twisted perspective! It was fun! I did my usual stupid topics that really are very Seinfeld-inspired, in the sense that they're about nothing. Stuff that is not worth discussing yet funny to hear :)

I'm going to give a shot at Chinese stand up tonight, my material's not that great if you ask me, but I'll see how it goes, I'm not too experienced with Chinese comedy so I don't know what will happen, I can only hope I get the edge of being a foreigner speaking in Cantonese :) I always get that extra benefit. I'll talk about my personal experiences but add a comedic twist to the stories. I'm excited but it's just a matter of time before my nerves start eating away at me!

I started playing The Godfather and boy am I addicted to it!! I can't stop! This is not good! I started on Saturday afternoon because I just wanted to stop myself from thinking about work and stuff so much and now I can't stop thinking about the game!! I stayed up an extra hour last night just playing. This is so stupid :P I love the game tho, freaking exciting I must say.

Life is weird now, I'm having ups and downs a lot recently, things are hectic but coming through, my projects are working out but slowly and I have to really keep an eye on them. Sometimes I wake up feeling like I can't force myself to work, sometimes I just get all excited about being in control of my work! Probably that time of the month again ;). This week will be fun and so will next, got a holiday on Wednesday because of Lantern Festival on Tuesday night. Going to see if I can join the drum jam that night before I head out and meet some friends and light myself up with glow sticks! :) Speaking of which I need to find all my glow sticks today so I don't end up wasting them this year! Stock up on glow sticks on my way home later today.

My drumming's been totally put on hold recently because too much stuff is happening. I've realized once again that it's not a matter of what to do, but what not to do for me. It's cool but discouraging at the same time because I keep trying to find ways to do everything! Anyways, today's day 10 issue is that I am once again overwhelmed with opportunity and so hopefully I'll get more efficient with my work and be able to take better control of my life. I think I just need to finish all my projects now, stop, re-access what I'm doing and then attack. I feel like my old ways of working aren't working well enough for me. Let's see.
