I've challenged myself to write something, anything everyday while I am in Baltimore. It has not been going according to plan. I know what you're thinking. "A New Year's resolution, how original." You are almost correct in your cynicism. This is a resolution from 3 years ago. And I've been actively trying to get back to it the past 2 months. This is really a birthday gift to myself since I'm getting older and crustier in a few days. I can't help it if the New Year's holiday BS annually tries to steal my shine.
This is a comedian's website though, and the stuff I'll probably write won't fit well here so I'll just put everything on an old blog I just discovered a couple days ago (Chris Columbus style). I actually had to delete or unpublish most of the posts there because they were from 2008- 2011 before and right after I started stand up comedy. It was too personal and too incriminating and I'm marginally smarter and substantially more defensive than I was years ago (I was in my 20s). Writing on the internet, especially before now, when you're essentially a nobody, is like hiding in plain sight. You know you exist, but no one else does. It gives you a false sense of freedom.
Since I gave up most of my worldly possessions months ago, I have little more than my thoughts and memories. And most of those are more alarming than my credit score. The bright side is I can't afford therapy right now, but this will do.
