I’m really trying to push myself while I’m here in WI. I feel like it’s a good opportunity to take care of a few things while not having to worry about rent.
I have a few projects that I’m working on: writing 3 spec campaigns for my book and standup material. I’ve finished with one campaign and the second one will hopefully be finish (w/writing) by next week. I’ve never done stand up, in fact, the idea of doing standup scares the crap out of me. I wanted to try it in grad school as part of an assignment, but instead I had to learn bellydancing and then perform it in front of the whole school while wearing tight white pants that showed off my undies (not intentional!).
I came up with another idea while working out at the Y: choreograph a few dances and post them online. My childhood dream was to be a dance choreographer. I knew every Janet Jackson and Paula Abdul dance. There wasn’t a dance team at my grade school so I did the next closest thing, cheerleading. When I went to HS, I tried out for the dance team but there was this big controversy and I didn’t get on the team (that’s a whole other story). I still did choreography through HS and while I was in college. I stopped when I got to grad school, and I miss it. I took a lot of dance classes while in NY and SF. The best is creating a dance myself and I haven’t done this in a long time.
I want to lose weight while I’m in WI and I think this would be a great way to help me with this goal. The food here is delicious and gaining fast. I go to the Y 3 times a week, but I don’t think it’s enough. I need more! I need to DANCE MAGIC DANCE! I’m thinkin’ if I post my goals online, I’ll do it for sure.
Goals to be accomplished before I move to LA:
- Finish 3 spec campaigns
- Perform standup
- Choreograph and perform 1 routine and post it on youtube
There are 3 songs I’m thinkin’ bout:
- Stereo by John Legend
- The Hardest Button to Button by White Stripes
- Bang Bang by K’naan
I’m hoping I can put this together within the next 2 weeks. We shall see…
