Alex: Not going to lie, Dangerdust inspired me today. My favorite is “Know how to spell a word more than one way.” – Mark Twain. Which one is your favorite?
Nik:  Um.
Alex: Chalkboard art doesn’t do it for ya?
Nik: Everything is just so nice now. I mean, remember the days when you’d go to school and there was a permanent marker dick on your locker?
Alex: Yeah, I was really into MASH. Did you ever play that game?

Goals Schmoals

Monday, May 5, 2014 , , , , 1

Alex: Now that I have a script to finish, I’ve been focusing on getting my work flow down. It’s tough. I don’t know how some people do it. Some days I’m uber productive and sometimes I’ll go on a week bender where I do nothing besides breathe, eat and drink wine. Sometimes I’ll procrastinate by reading things about being productive. That’s how I stumbled across this gem. James Clear “Forget About Setting Goals. Focus on ...

Party? Play? Work?

Alex:  I am in such a different place today than I was a year ago it is absolutely insane. I had such a fun college life, all I did was play. Now it’s hard to enjoy playing, I always feel like there’s something else I could and should be doing. It’s weird. The weirdest part is that I don’t even WANT to go out.

The guy I’m sleeping with is already home passed out and my roommate is getting ready to go to a party at this beautiful house in the Palisades. Ready for the best part? My back  hurts. Talk about change. A year ago I was bartending and going out 4-5 times a week.  Granted I did have my writers class today which was immediately followed by a 6 hour shift at work. I started that whole server thing again until I get a real job. Sigh.  I live with two other girls so having the place to myself is rare, I love when it happens. This post-college-pre-adulthood phase is weird. It’s a transition that you’re in long enough to be aware of. You have a lot more to be responsible for and that can sometimes be a buzz kill. I want to go out, but

Successful Struggles

Alex:  I read something the other day that really stuck with me.  Nik, remember when you came over right before you left to go home for Thanksgiving and I was having a bit of a freak out moment?  I was overwhelmed with finding a job, being away from home for the holidays for the first time, keeping up with how expensive it is to live in LA, etc.?  I was pacing back and forth, steam ...
