write a novel in a month recap

Write a Novel in 30 Days I bit off a lot here, that’s for sure. This wasn’t my idea. Often, I will google ‘how to change your life’ in a week or month, to find ideas for you to vote on. This one ‘write a novel in 30 days’ came from a book I picked up in the library a couple years ago called, you guessed it! “Write a novel in 30 days.” This book is actually based on a website that you can read more about here: http://nanowrimo.org To be considered a novel it has be at least 50,000 words long.

The Guy Formerly Known as Tom Brady Month

love Dave Waite. Dave is one of the most naturally funny people I’ve ever met. One time I literally watched Dave dance on stage for 6 minutes because he felt like the set didn’t matter and he killed. He’s always had an ability to say the simplest things the funniest ways. No one is funnier at kicking me when I’m down and making me feel better. After my phone got stolen out of my hands, I mentioned it on stage, and he yelled out, “HA HA DUMMY!” After my engagement ended, he mentioned my ex’s name, and I was like, “How do you… Read more“The Guy Formerly Known as Tom Brady Month”

Total Bro House Workout exercise month recap

Sometimes I forget that this project is even happening, then I remember: “oh yea, have I have exercised today?” I was supposed to exercise 10 minutes every day for a month, and I got close. I only missed five days out of the 30. So 25 out of 30 is pretty good, it’s better than I have done in the past. If you combine this month with all the weeks that had some sort of physical activity, I’ve probably exercised more in the past eight months than I ever have as an adult. I did a combination of jumping jacks, torso twists, some… Read more“Total Bro House Workout exercise month recap”

Not Being Negative for a Month

Not to be negative, but whoa, this wasn’t an easy one. I’m not sure what’s covered under “negative speech.” I know the first day of this month I was put under the spotlight, you can actually hear it on the “Unpopular Opinions” podcast from December. I was tiptoeing around subjects and parsing my words so I wouldn’t say anything negative. After the podcast was over I was talking with the host, Adam Todd Brown and another comic, TK Kelly, and the subject of Buffalo Wild Wings came up. I immediately said I hated that place, which for sure is negative and not really… Read more“Not Being Negative for a Month”

Momentary Lapse of Reason (Dining in Week Recap)

This week started off with me quitting and then two hours later unquitting. At some point I was gonna have enough of this shit. If I won every week and love this project the whole time, that wouldn’t make a good story. Im trying to stop myself from becoming the couch monster again. I’ll take 2 hours of saying fuck it over 2 months. That being said, I didn’t exactly nail this week. I ate out my first meal of the week at Chik Fil A, after therapy. Hey I openned up and then I filled the hole with a sweet fried chicken… Read more“Momentary Lapse of Reason (Dining in Week Recap)”

Apologies to Reid

Defiant Apologizes! Apologize are just self serving bullshit to ease your own mind. I do it a lot. I knew it would get picked, because the theme of this week was “right the ship” and all the other choices were about writing, except this one. So any outlier on the poll will always win I didn’t apologize to somebody that I’m still friends with because I didn’t want to rip open old scabs, or maybe it was too hard. Anyway’s my old roommate Reid had a huge jar of quarters when I lived in nyc. Sometimes I didn’t have any cash on me…. Read more“Apologies to Reid”

Amber Preston Week

Dave Waite makes me laugh. Dave makes me laugh when he is offstage and Dave makes me laugh when is onstage. The guy is funny. He is also a good egg. A really good egg. I feel like I’ve known Dave my entire stand up career but I probably met him several years into my stand up life. Maybe while he was passing through Minneapolis? Maybe that one time I flew to St. Louis for a comedy contest after a solid 9 months of stage time – I bet he was nice to me even though I was that way too eager newbie… Read more“Amber Preston Week”
