A Dream I had

Right now, I’m watching a documentary about dreams on Netflix. Scientists seem to be getting much closer to figuring out what they mean to people and if they’re important. I’m not going to get into details but this documentary reminded me of one dream that I had awhile ago.

When I wrote my play titled, “Train Wreck,” which made local and national news, I had a bad dream the night before the first performance. In my dream, every single script had burned up in fires and we had no way to make sure that we were saying the right lines or if we were even doing the play as it had been written. Talk about high anxiety! Anyway, thought I’d share that with you. Thanks for reading!

Today, I woke up late.

10:00 a.m., 12:20 p.m., & 1:00 p.m.

Today, I woke up late; at 1:00 p.m. (Pacific time) that was my specific Pacific time.

It’s an awful feeling to wake up so late. Sure,  I didn’t go to bed until 4:00 a.m. but I just hate missing out on the day.

The whole story

– Here’s how it went down after I feel asleep around 4:00 a.m. – 

  • First, I woke up at 10:00 a.m. and then fell back to sleep.
  • Next, I woke up at 12:20 p.m. and then fell back to sleep.
  • Finally,  I woke up at 1:00 p.m. and stayed up.

This time, I said, “NO MORE!” Really loudly in my head and then I got up to begin my day.
I did some dishes, watched some videos on youtube, and finally, I wrote this blog.
I’m well on my way.
The point of this post is motivate you not to give up on your hopes and dreams.
Get out there and be somebody.

Get up and look your bed in the eyes and you tell it, “I am done with you… For the next 16 or so hours.”
That would be weird if your bed had eyes.

Now go do it. I believe in you.

New adventures…

GoodbiOWA!!

In the very near future, I will be pursuing my acting and comedy careers by moving out of Iowa and to another state. Iowa has been great to me and I have met some great people who are so willing to give support. California needs to get out of my system, if nothing else. Otherwise, I’m in it to win it!

Should I return for whatever reason, Iowa is home and will always be a great place to come back to. However, my plans are to give it my all in L.A. and to learn everything that I can to become the best performer that I can… Not just for myself but also for those who enjoy my work.
