Second Opinions

Last night, I ended up meeting up with a friend for a low-key evening. After a week of hustling around, sitting around for a low key evening was pretty necessary to experience. The following morning, today, was to be filled with improv from 10 AM to 3 PM, and the latter three hours were dedicated…

Oh, Orange

This will be a quick post today, and it’s a promise.  As life should have its way with all of us, coincidences are popping up around us, and there is a divide between those who shrug/laugh it off and those who analyze it.  It’s already obvious where I stand on this issue. This weekend has…

Thanksgiving: A Break Down

I hope everyone had a wonderful, fun, safe Thanksgiving and–for those who celebrate–beginning of Hanukkah. The holiday was kicked off and extended by meeting up and hanging out with two close friends:  John and Kaitlin.  John is a buddy of mine from high school, and he’ll probably be running The New York Times one day.  This is always stated, but…

Yes Everything

There is no reason to go into detail about the benefits of improv.  Taking improv classes and performing improv can benefit anyone in several way as far as communication, listening, personal growth, acceptance, and in other fields.  Practice makes perfect, and this can be useful to help someone step out of their shell, gain confidence, and…
