The Supremes, 1966
I’m trying to stay up as late as possible tonight because I work graveyard friday nights and I’m still finding trouble with figuring out the best way to prepare for the shift. I asked everyone at work how they do it and they all basically said that they don’t know and just drink a lot of caffeine. So encouraging!
I’m hoping by doing that show next month it will help me book other shows even though I know deep down what I have to do is a bunch of open mics but I’m always border lining with either being too intimidated or not caring and thinking I should just go for it and obviously the first one wins.
Some days I truly don’t mind my job at all (not that I don’t want to be there forever) and other days I want to just fucking quit so badly and get annoyed that I don’t make an effort to get out. The most depressing thing is that everyone who works for the company feels the exact same way and all has the same story in that they kinda got stuck doing this and don’t know what else to do or lack the motivation to pursue other things. I need to get out.

Megan Koester, Alison Stevenson and Sam Varela have teamed up to turn the open mic world UPSIDE DOWN (kinda). Are you tired of seeing the same comedians on all the comedy shows in LA? Do you want to see the next Louie CK or Sarah Silverman before they hit it big so you can say “I was there at the start…”
Well that’s what The (Kinda) Open Mic is for! Every month we pull together the best rising new talent from all over LA to perform on one amazing show! Plus the open mic element allows for some surprises, so come out and be there to discover the next big comedy star!
Hiiii come to this okay byeeee
!!!! I must be obnoxiously happy all the time at work because I was feeling a little depressed so I was quieter and everyone kept asking me what was wrong.
one girl was like “why are you in a weird mood?” And I wanted to respond with, “we aren’t even friends??? Why would I tell you??!”
