Stand up... again!

Woah!! I love it I love it I love it!! My stand up comedy is rocking! 4 hours ago, I was stressing out as I tried my best to write out some new Chinese comedy and 4 hours later I'm, so relieved and relaxed as I prepare to hit the sack after a long day. Boy, what a day I must say.

So what's been going on? Well I've finally gained some focus in my work and I've realized the power of getting out of the house every now and then. I think I'm going to try to get out early in the morning and come back with a clear mind, ready to kill my work one at a time! I'm totally into power this and power that. I mean like Power Lunches and Power Breakfasts, I love this whole executive term I use now! I think ever since I got my new O2 Zinc, my whole mentality has changed and I'm ready to conquer the world! I think what was holding me back was, as I said in my previous posts, redundency! I mean now with my smart phone, I write all my stuff once and it's deployed everywhere! All my meetings, etc. etc.! I love it! Although I still have a long way to go before I'm a smart phone power user but hey, at least I'm getting there!

I've been reading a lot more about developing my business and learnt a lot when it comes to my atttidue in dealing with work. I realized I need to better train myself in controlling my emotions with business. As they say, it's only business, not personal.

My life's going insane now! I'm facing so many now or never situations! One of them is my stand up, the other is my band, and there are so many other things! Last night, my friend Bun and I went to the Ching Ma Bridge and visited the lookout point there. Oh boy was it inspiring!! I actually felt so... empty that moment you have no idea. Like my mind went blank and I just enjoyed the view of watching cars go by on the bridges. For once, after a long time, I was unconciously meditating at the numbing view of cars on a bridge. I wanted to go clear my mind and I got that. As much as I kept stressing about all the 850583053 things I had to still think about, it was good and well necessary!

I look forward to a lot more great and inspiring places to open up my mind and thinking and let me just know that no matter what happens, no matter how stressed and emotional I get, I still have the rest of the world to enjoy and appreciate... especially when you got yourself a bunch of real, caring friends :) Like I always say, I'd rather have 2 genuine friends than 100 normal friends... and last night, Bun and I got talking and we were discussing how in a month's time he'll be gone to Germany for a year and he asked me "Hey Viv, do you like me taking you to these places?" and I just looked at him and said "man, don't even get me started about this, these places help me so much, it's going to make it worse for me when you're gone" and we just went off talking about where we'd both be in a year's time. It's so exciting and touching at the same time because Bun and I have come a long way together as two individuals who worked in harmony and synergy and really built each other up as much as possible.

The next time I post here will probably be the last one before he leaves to Germany, so I'll let you know what rituals we perform as a goodbye ceremony for him :)

Ahahaha, thanks for that!!

Stand up is awesome but quite tough I must say, especially Chinese comedy. Woah, I never expected it to be so exhausting! But nonetheless, this is awesome fun! :D

Thanks for the kind words and support, I'll keep you posted with my progress or just check back on my blog :)
