142lbs as of this morning.
Lost 13lbs this year by cutting portions, being slightly more active, and making slightly better food choices. It’s a slow journey thanks to autoimmune disease and exercise intolerance - taking synthroid fucked up my heart and now I get arrhythmia if I workout or have any kind of stimulant. Booooo…

Take the note as if it were “don’t be coy.” You don’t have to be big and loud, but you have to be forthcoming.
In improv, we act like real life with one BIG BIG exception: we speak our mind honestly.
We want the scene where the waiter speaks his or her mind honestly to the pushy customer. In real life, a waiter would never do that. In an improv scene, we want to see it. “You shouldn’t treat people like that. It’s mean and unnecessary.” And then the customer speaks his or her honest opinion back. “You’re my waiter. It’s your job to take my crap no matter what.”
It takes practice. You have to get good at catching your real reaction in your head —- the one you rarely say — and then expressing it. How you express it is up to you in terms of volume or emotion — but it has to be honest and direct. That is your job as an actor. To speak the truth we rarely get to hear.
When I finally made that realization that that is what is meant by “react honestly” I realized I had to do some real work on myself as a person to get better in my improv scenes. Part of that comes from trying to be self realized in the moment in all my situations. Learning what my real reactions and feelings are, not the filter I put on.
In order to be a better improviser, I realized I needed to get know myself better. It’s an ongoing process, but it’s been so worthwhile.
some collected snapchats from myself and other floridians of the majesty building on the interstate in altemonte springs that’s been in construction for about 200 years
i hate. this. fucking. building
The Orlando monolith.
I miss FL and this stupid thing
"Been in construction for about 200 years," is very accurate.
YES! This fucking building! Someone once tried to tell me that a weird Christian militant group bought the building and they were using it to train their missionaries in tactical warfare.
