Thank you for taking the time to watch this. It lasts about as long as the time that I spent on it (in case you couldn't tell).
But, yes, it is really happening. I am graduating from college... but I'm not leaving school just yet, why would anyone want to?! I'll be spending a semester out in Los Angeles, taking classes and landing an internship. From there - homelessness?
Hopefully, I will find some work to do out there after the semester is over. Shooting for a job in television, specifically writing. I aspire to be locked in a room for hours on end with other writers eating junk food, telling jokes, losing my tan, not sleeping, not showering etc. What a career goal - please send money.
Anyway, since this blog starts with my graduation, I plan to keep it up on my adventures into the great L.A. So, if you want, check in to see what I'm up to, whose coffee I'm getting (with "sugar" or without, Mr. Sheen?), and whether or not I have a home.
Finally, I know the video doesn't relay my feelings completely, but a GIANT thank you to everyone who has gotten me to this point -
Dad and Mom, for 1. having me, and 2. making it possible for me to be at this place right now. I know it took a lot of work, money, and sacrifices, but I'm worth it. Right?
Charlotte, for being a part of all the dumb videos I've done over the years - whichever one of us makes it to Hollywood first has to bring the other one along (unless it's me, and then SEE YA!).
All my other family and friends, for putting up with me and letting me live long enough to get here. An extra thank you to those who supported me and laughed at my jokes... to those who didn't, I will forget you in all my award acceptance speeches.
It really did take all of you - family, friends (facebook and otherwise), classmates, teachers, teammates, coaches, bosses, colleagues, roommates, pets, random people at parties - to make me "me." And rest easy, all the dumb and embarrassing stuff you've done over the years will be on screen someday. Just a heads up!
Again, thank you so much for visiting. Please feel free to leave comments, advice, jokes, riddles, poems, X's and O's, whatever.
All the love in my full, full heart,
