Well here we are, the beginning of summer and I lay on my bed taking a break in between my awesome sessions of getting work done. The weather is fantastic today because it's cool enough to not make me drown in my own sweat but warm enough so I feel limber. I've got around 2 hours before I'm going to head out for some meetings, and good ol' Chinese Open Mic at TakeOut Comedy tonight. I'm getting better and better at organizing my comedy ideas/writing but I have yet to work on a full concrete bit. I mean, I have a bunch of scattered ideas that are funny but nothing that can tie them up together.

I've been watching the Jerry Seinfeld Archives everyday and I must say, each time I do, I get re-inspired to write comedy. As he said on his site, he hopes his videos can inspire others like the comedians he watched and man, that alone is inspiring. Jerry Seinfeld is really one of my favorite comics, not only because he's funny, but because of his attitude. He was the one who inspired me to not break the chain. I have to admit, that's harder than it seems, but it's a kind of pressure that we need to keep things going. So far, I've had to fight through to keep the chain alive for more than a week. But these last few days have been a renewal of my goals and methods. I've realized that I enjoy working in 35 minute bursts and all I need to do is overcome the first 5 minutes of "oh I'm not ready right now, let me first...." and I'm good to go. I've realized that I'm a man who needs things to be convenient or I sure as hell am not going to keep at it. The reason I spend so much time finding the best/better way to do things is not only to save me time, but to make sure there is a maximum chance that I will actually keep doing it. For example, I used to have to pick up my mobile phone and hold it to my ear while I'm at my desk to make phone calls. Just this simple gesture was enough of an inconvenience for me to want to push making necessary phone calls for later. I later invested in a blue tooth device and ever since, a phone call has been nothing more than, just talking.

The last 10 days have seen me do 6 comedy gigs, a heck of a lot of freelance work and the birth of a new song with my band. It was sad to see our vocalist go, but the remaining 3 stay united and are determined to jam it out! So if there are any bassists or vocalists out there who are into heavy metal (like Slayer, Lamb of God, etc.) then please let me know, we want you! :D

My stomach's starting to rumble which is really a good sign because I've kind of figured out my metabolism/eating habits quite well lately... I've learned to listen to my body with food and also decided to stop logging everything I eat. Why? Well it's kind of like how you get to a certain point and you're no longer practicing for technique, but instead, practicing for functionality. I've managed to pretty much have a good idea of how much I should/can eat at one go. Sure there are times you'll find me sneaking into a Ben and Jerry's (oh how good you are to my taste buds!) and gobbling down a pint of ice cream with my friends, but otherwise, I doubt any dietitian is going to complain.

And before my body complains, I better get some food in there! So enjoy the next 10 days! Things are going to be going wild like the weather so let's see if I end up sweating/freezing it out!
