I'm feeling good right now.
I'm in a really good place.
I feel like I've been in the toilet for so long for so many reasons, and now, after 12 years of being in Chicago, and essentially being an adult, I am finally coming into my own. Into my own as a comedian, a producer, a choreographer, and a person.

It feels great.

I know that nothing is permanent, so I am just going to ride the wave while I have it.

I am ready for the triathlon. This morning, Andrea and I went for a 3/4 mile swim at Foster Beach and it was amazing. It felt so good. I love swimming. I even dragged ole FuzGerds out with me, though he only got a small swim in. I think that my 2 other triathlons this summer have prepped me a lot for this race. I know how to do this. I don't have the nerves I did last year about it, cause it isn't foreign to me anymore. It's great.

My rehearsals for Boobs of the Dead are amazing, too. I LOVE the girls and they are so talented and we are having a ball. In only a mere 3 rehearsals, they've worked SO hard on these dances, and I really think that it is going to be a fun and entertaining show. I am already proud of my contributions to it.  I forget how much I love choreographing and teaching. It's an amazing feeling when something in your head translates to something that people can bring to life on stage. Sometimes I don't even know if things are possible, and these girls are blowing my mind.  I leave each rehearsal feeling exhilarated and inspired. I need to remember that. My choreography methods are maybe a tad bizarre--I listen to the music for weeks and weeks to conceptual things and don't actualy finalize anything or write anything down until about 2 days before I have to start teaching. The weird thing is, I stress like a mofo until a dance is finalized. It's always in the back of my head. I have a hard time relaxing cause I know there is work to be done. But now that all my major pieces are done and taught, and my last 2 solos are being developed in rehearsals, I am so much more at peace. I have a little bit more ME time in my day, and I love that.

I also love meeting new people and making new friends. People are so fascinating to me, and I love seeing what people I naturally click with. I'm lucky that in my chosen profession, I have many opportunities to interact with others and keep making connections. My font is flowing with amazing people to be inspired by and to collaborate with.

Life, man. How bout it?
